US Ringtone Charts 30/05/2010

US Singles Chart:

1. Usher featuring Will.I.Am – OMG (last week – 1)

A second consecutive week at number one for Usher and Will.I.Am’s dance-floor filling, autotuned beast of a track OMG. We can probably expect to be hearing this through our stereos until at least the height of summer, and it does have a certain lively beach vibe to it, so why not!  Download a taste of Usher for your phone, here.

2. B.o.B Featuring Eminem and Haley Williams – Airplanes (last week – 2) – SONG OF THE WEEK!

Up yet another place for B.o.B’s next single, which in some ways is a status effort, including two of the biggest names in music right now being a great demonstration of just how seriously the rest of the world is taking our newest rap starlet. B.o.B really has come from nowhere, and given the success of his first two singles, he’s here to stay.

3. Katy Perry featuring Snoop Dogg – California Gurls (last week – 2)

She might be better known in the UK for her relationship with a certain well-known and highly controversial comedian then her music, but Katy Perry’s making quite a mark stateside. ‘California Gurls’ features a legendary rapper and sounds like a classic summer-time tune. The countdown to the holidays has begun! Can’t have it all! Download Katy Perry ringtones here.

4. Taio Cruz featuring Ludacris – Break Your Heart (last week – 5)

Up one for arguably Britain’s biggest urban success across the pond these days, Taio Cruz is another one who goes down better in the US than he does in the UK. Ludacris is sure to have added to his street cred on this particular track, not that he was lacking credibility in the first place…

5. B.o.B featuring Bruno Mars – Nothin’ On You (last week – 4)

A second single in the top five for the second week in a row for B.o.B, which considering he’s only released two singles of any note in his entire career is a most impressive achievement. It’s not long until his third effort comes along, though this track will have to outdo itself to hang around long enough to mark three in the top five…

US Albums Chart:

1. Glee The Music Volume 3: Showstoppers (new entry)

Another round of melodramatic covers from what’s fast becoming the most popular show on TV. It might be an album for the youngsters (there’s nothing here that everyone over twenty will probably have heard before, and it doesn’t touch the originals), but it could fit in well if you’re trying to please young and old at a party…

2. The Rolling Stones – Exile On Main Street (new entry)

Remake of the classic Rolling Stones album, still raved about by music fans and critic alike all these years later. This remastering does tighten the album up around the edges, which may not do a whole lot for the more committed, ragged fans of the band’s shambolic style, but there’s loads and loads here to love. Click here to get hold of some classic Rolling Stones ringtones.

3. The Black Keys – Brothers (new entry)

Sixth album from the blues brothers, who mark their highest entry on the charts to date. Brothers has sold an impressive 73,000 copies in only its opening week, and while it might be a temporary sojourn in the top five, The Black Keys will count this as a significant commercial success.

4. Justin Bieber – My World 2.0 (last week – 1)

Bieber’s off the top again, but don’t be surprised if the child-like star – who half of america already seems to be highly, highly obsessed with – is around for a lot longer. This is cheesy but catchy, exactly what you’d expect from an accessible, big-selling pop album really. You’ll either love it or loath it. Grab Justin Bieber’s latest ringtones, here.

5. Nas And Damian Marley – Distant Relatives (new entry)

Bob’s son and his rapper friend collaborate to produce an album on Africa, as the multi-faceted title suggests. This has taken two years to produce and sold an impressive 57,000 copies this week, just enough to edge inside the top five. Damian may never match his dad’s success, but he’s a well established name in his own right these days.
