appear on the chart)

HENCE songs are not deemed to have fallen off the charts UNTIL they are
OUTSIDE/BELOW the top 50 and NOT the top 30 broadcasted on air. This IS
reflected in the year end ‘jamz’ and explains partially why songs peaking
significantly lower than others may still finish ahead of them on the
year-end charts.

Jennifer Lopez Leaps Onto Hot 100 with ‘On the Floor’

by Gary Trust, N.Y. | March 03, 2011 11:44 EST


Jennifer Lopez blasts back onto the Billboard Hot 100, as “On the Floor,” featuring Pitbull, soars in as the Hot Shot Debut at No. 9, marking the new “American Idol” judge’s highest career launch on the list.


Lopez’s first top 10 as a lead artist since the four-week No. 1 “All I Have,” featuring LL Cool J, in 2003, begins at No. 3 on Digital Songs (170,000). Island Def Jam withheld the song from a digital release for a month following its radio launch (it rises 40-38 on Pop Songs), synching it with thepremiere of its video on tonight’s “Idol” episode.


Jennifer Lopez ‘On the Floor’ Video to Premiere on ‘Idol’


“All I Have” also represented Lopez’s previous highest debut, having arrived at No. 25 the week of Dec. 28, 2002.


“On the Floor” marks Lopez’s 10th Hot 100 top 10, a sum that includes four No. 1s. She had last reached the top 10 as a featured artist on LL Cool J’s “Control Myself” in 2006.


The song previews “Love?,” Lopez’s seventh studio album due Apr. 19.


Divas dominate this week’s Hot 100 headlines, as Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” spends a third week at No. 1, dating to its debut on top two weeks ago.


Though it’s off 44% in downloads to 286,000, according to Nielsen SoundScan, the song remains at No. 1 on Digital Songs. Radio activity surges, as “Born” gains by 21% on Radio Songs (101 million, according to Nielsen BDS), where it holds at No. 4.


Lady Gaga’s ‘Born’ This Way Video Premieres


The song passes a million in digital sales – its cumulative sum stands at 1,243,000 – making it the fifth-best-selling download this year.


At three weeks atop the Hot 100, “Born” ties Gaga’s debut single, “Just Dance,” featuring Colby O’Donis (2009), for the longest of her three chart reigns. (Her second No. 1, “Poker Face,” ruled the April 11, 2009, Hot 100).


Like “Born,” Cee Lo Green’s “F**k You (Forget You),” at No. 2 for a second week, registers a sharp digital decline – down 39% to 252,000 – while building in airplay. The song claims Airplay Gainer honors on the Hot 100 for a second consecutive week, bounding into the top 10 (14-6) on Radio Songs (80 million in audience, up 28%).


Bruno Mars’ “Grenade” holds at No. 3 on the Hot 100 and P!nk’s “F**kin’ Perfect” rebounds 6-4.


Rihanna’s “S&M” forces a 7-5 advance, granting the singer her 13th top five Hot 100 hit. In the chart’s 52-year history, only four other solo females have notched more top five tracks: Madonna (28), Mariah Carey (26), Janet Jackson (24) and Whitney Houston (19). (Rihanna ties the top five tallies of Beyonce and Olivia Newton-John).


Katy Perry’s “Firework” falls 5-6, and Enrique Iglesias’ former No. 4-peaking “Tonight (I’m Lovin’ You),” featuring Ludacris and DJ Frank E, rises 9-7. As previously reported, the song becomes Iglesias’ first No. 1 on the Pop Songs radio airplay chart.


Perry doubles up in the top 10, as “E.T.,” featuring Kanye West, rockets 28-8 with Digital Gainer accolades. The cut roars 12-4 on Digital Songs (170,000, up 42%) and enters Radio Songs at No. 57 (20 million, up 194%).


Dr. Dre’s “I Need a Doctor,” featuring Eminem and Skylar Grey, continues its Hot 100 yo-yoing, descending 4-10. Three weeks ago, the song started at No. 5 before exhibiting expected sharp second-week sales declines and plummeting to No. 32. Following Dr. Dre’s appearance at the Grammy Awards Feb. 13, the track rebounded to No. 4 last week.


Twelve additional debuts join Lopez’s “Floor” in entering the Hot 100.


With three new entries, the “Glee” cast ups its count to a record-extending 120 total Hot 100 hits. (Two weeks ago, it passed Elvis Presley’s 108 charted titles). The ensemble enters with remakes of Human League’s “Don’t You Want Me” (No. 49), Jamie Foxx’s “Blame It (On the Alcohol)” (No. 55) and Ke$ha’s “TiK ToK” (No. 61).


‘Glee’ Gets Sick Over Ke$ha, Blames It ‘On the Alcohol’


The TV troupe releases “Glee: The Music, Volume 5” next Tuesday (March 8), featuring its first two original songs: the uptempo, Max Martin-co-written “Loser Like Me” and the Lea Michele-sung ballad “Get It Right” (both expected to impact the Hot 100 in two weeks).


Other Hot 100 debuts include Wiz Khalifa’s “On My Level,” featuring Too $hort; “Someone Like You” (No. 65) and “Set Fire to the Rain” (No. 88), both from Adele’s “21,” the Billboard 200’s new No. 1; and, Aaron Lewis’ “Country Boy,” featuring George Jones and Charlie Daniels.


The lattermost song marks Daniels’ first visit to the Hot 100 since 1982.

Skylar Grey Parlays Hit-Making for Eminem, Dre Into Solo Career

The story reads like a page out of Cinderella 2.0.


Against all odds, a young, relatively unknown artist is chosen to sing the hook she penned for a track by a high-profile rapper. Not only that, she’s also asked to perform the single on the industry’s biggest music stage: the Grammy Awards. And the singer nails the performance. So much so that she becomes a top trending topic on Twitter, and her phone starts ringing off the hook with more collaboration requests. In the meantime, the clock shows no signs of striking midnight as the singer/songwriter is also busy finally fulfilling a longtime dream: writing and recording her own solo album.


Video: Skylar Grey performs with Eminem, Dr. Dre at 2011 Grammys


That scenario is just what happened to Skylar Grey, who, along with Eminem, is featured on Dr. Dre’s second single from his long-awaited “Detox” album, “I Need a Doctor.” Bowing at No. 5 and simultaneously nabbing Hot Shot Debut honors on the Billboard Hot 100 after the Grammys, the single — co-written by Grey — is No. 10 on the chart following the video’s Feb. 24 premiere on MTV and Vevo. Grey also anchors two more slots on the Hot 100: as a featured vocalist/co-writer on Diddy-Dirty Money’s “Coming Home,” which peaked at No. 12, and Lupe Fiasco’s“Words I Never Said,” another Grey co-write that debuted at No. 89. She also wrote T.I.’s“Castle Walls,” featuring Christina Aguilera.


An artist being featured on a hook isn’t an original concept. But it’s a concept that has claimed more added value as a career launching pad in the past year, thanks to the solid chart and sales emergence of such newcomers as Nicki Minaj (Usher’s “Lil Freak”), Bruno Mars (B.o.B’s “Nothin’ on You”) and Ke$ha (Flo Rida’s “Right Round”). And galloping headlong into 2011, Grey isn’t the only featured guest eyeing a promising solo career. There’s fellow singer/songwriter Dev, slated to release her first album this summer after guesting on Far*East Movement’s No. 1 song “Like a G6.” Also in the wings: singers Wynter Gordon, Bridget Kelly and Eva Simons.


“It’s the trend of 2010 and beyond of major artists giving opportunities to lesser artists to be featured,” says Universal Music Publishing Group senior VP of creative affairs Jennifer Blakeman, who signed Grey about five years ago. “We’ve seen artists like Nicki Minaj and Bruno Mars seemingly coming out of nowhere into public focus based on features. And now it’s Skylar going from zero to 90 playing on the Grammys within six months of her nominated song being released.”


That nominated song was Eminem’s “Love the Way You Lie,” featuring Rihanna; it was up for both song and record of the year, as well as best rap song. It was her first collaboration with producer Alex Da Kid, a pairing propelled by Blakeman’s gut instinct last July when Grey visited her in New York with a bunch of new songs penned during a cabin sojourn in the Oregon woods.


“I had all this new music and didn’t know what I was going to do with it,” says Grey, who was born and raised in Wisconsin. “I was getting disillusioned [after a previous deal with Warner Bros.] but at the same time I knew there was nothing else I wanted to do — I had no plan B. Then I was introduced to Alex Da Kid via e-mail and a week later we were sending music back and forth.”


Writing since she was 14 and singing since age 6, Grey is no stranger to the Billboard charts. Under the moniker Holly Brook, she guested on Fort Minor’s No. 4 2006 hit, “Where’d You Go.” Though sung by Rihanna, it was Grey’s penned hook on “Love the Way You Lie” that opened the door to more high-profile collaborations and her buzzed-about guest features through Alex Da Kid-who produced “I Need a Doctor,” “Coming Home” and “Words I Never Said.” She has since become the only artist signed to a production deal with the producer. The pair is currently working together on songs for her upcoming solo album.


“People wanting to cover choruses I’ve written is awesome and has created a platform for me to be an artist,” Grey says. And she hasn’t altered her technique in any way in the wake of her success. “The choruses are very alternative-sounding, which is my natural style. I always write with my emotions in mind.”




Skylar Grey isn’t the only female hitmaker striking out on her own. Here are four more singer/songwriters to watch:


1) Wynter Gordon


Wynter Gordon (@wyntermusic) sang her way to a No. 5 Billboard Hot 100 hit when she was featured on Flo Rida’s “Sugar.” Her break came when the song’s writers needed a female vocalist to reference the song for them. “It sounded really good when I did it,” Gordon says. “They said, ‘We’ll keep you on it. This could be good for you.’ ”


Nearly a year elapsed before Gordon returned to the charts, this time with the dance hit “Dirty Talk.” The David Guetta-produced track hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart and No. 4 on Dance Airplay. But Gordon says she would’ve liked her first single to come out soon after “Sugar.”


“I didn’t follow up with anything right away so people could connect the singer from ‘Sugar’ with me the artist,” she says. “Bruno Mars sang the hook for B.o.B and soon after that, Bruno released his own single. There was no disconnect.”


Signed to Big Beat/Atlantic, Gordon’s solo album is due later this year. In the meantime, she’ll be heard on Mr. Vegas’ new single, “Take Off”; Chris Brown’s “The Fame,” with Young Money rapper Tyga; and Steve Aoki’s “Can’t Go Back.” In addition to past writing credits for Danity Kane and Mary J. Blige, Gordon says she has three songs on Jennifer Lopez’s forthcoming Island Def Jam album, “Love?”


2) Bridget Kelly


“In the beginning, I was very nervous,” Bridget Kelly says of filling in for Alicia Keys when Jay-Z performed “Empire State of Mind” during his 9/11 concert in 2009 at New York’s Madison Square Garden. “I didn’t want everyone to be like, ‘Oh, she’s trying to be like Alicia.’ I just wanted to bring the same kind of life to the song that she did.”


After singing at subsequent Jay-Z appearances, including Coachella and “Saturday Night Live,” Kelly (@theycallmeBK) has loosened up. “I started doing ad-libs here and there to put my own flavor on it,” she says. “When you get to sing the biggest song of the year about your city, it’s huge. It started as an opportunity to sing background and fill in, but it generated more press and attention than anybody thought.”


The next big event for the singer/songwriter will be her first Roc Nation album. The still-untitled set is due later this year and will be prefaced by a mixtape. Her latest guest stint was on British rapper Tinchy Stryder’s “Take the World,” from his 2009 album “Third Strike.”


Kelly says she’s taking a hiatus from cameos. “Until I release some of my own material, I want to stray from that a little. I don’t want to come across as being ‘the girl who fills in and sings all the hooks.’ ”


3) Eva Simons


While Dutch singer Eva Simons ( was in London for a gig, pictures of her appeared on entertainment blog Soon after, her manager relayed the news that Chris Brown wanted to work with her after hearing her song “Silly Boy.” “I just gave it my juice,” Simons says of the French lyrics she wrote and sings at the beginning of “Pass Out,” a Euro/dance track featured on Brown’s 2009 album “Graffiti.” The song also samples Eric Prydz’s international dance hit “Call on Me.”


“I knew ‘Call on Me,’ ” says Simons. “When I heard the beat I thought it needed some sensual lyrics. Since I speak French, I wrote something French.”


While “Pass Out” wasn’t a single, Simons says the track’s Internet exposure helped raise her U.S. visibility.


What’s heightening her stateside profile even more, however, are her vocals on DJ Afrojack’s “Take Over Control,” whose lyrics she penned with partner Mike Hamilton. The track spent six weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Dance Airplay chart.


“It’s crazy to be No. 1 in the U.S. with a European dance song,” says Simons, who’s working on her own album. “While features are fun and can help, I don’t forget that I’m a solo artist.”


4) Dev



Northern California native Dev (@DEVisHot) is best-known as the featured voice on Far*East Movement’s No. 1 hit “Like a G6.” The singer/songwriter is also on the latest New Boyz single, “Backseat,” as well as her own debut track, “Bass Down Low” — produced by and featuring the Cataracs, the production duo behind “G6,” which samples Dev’s own viral hit, “Booty Bounce.” The duo is finishing up Dev’s first solo set, “The Night the Sun Came Up” (Indie-Pop/Universal Republic). In addition to working on songs for Timbaland and 50 Cent, Dev appears on Travis Barker’s “Give the Drummer Some.”


“Doing hooks isn’t anything I put too much pressure on,” Dev says. “I like doing it to add my flavor on different styles of tracks and seeing how different artists work. Sometimes hooks can be the hardest part. But it’s an opportunity to get my name out there — as long as I get to do my own projects.”


Universal Republic co-president/COO Avery Lipman says a strong hook performance adds “impressions that build a story for an artist with their own record and single. But [with someone] like Dev, you’ve got to have that X factor. Doing a hook might look easy but the nuances are subtle — between good and remarkable. You have to be able to make it all work.”
