Adele’s ‘Someone Like You’ Soars To No. 1 On Hot 100

by Gary Trust, N.Y. | September 07, 2011 3:30 EDT

Following an acclaimed performance of the song on the MTV Video Music Awards Aug. 28, Adele‘s stark ballad “Someone Like You” bounds to the top of the Billboard Hot 100, vaulting 19-1 with dual Digital and Airplay Gainer honors.

“Like” leaps 11-1 on Digital Songs with 275,000 downloads sold (up 191%), according to Nielsen SoundScan. On Radio Songs, the track blasts 42-19 with 46 million all-format audience impressions (up 59%), according to Nielsen BDS.

 

Get More: 2011 VMA, Music, Adele

 

The honors continue to pour in for Adele, as “Like” is her second Hot 100 No. 1, after “Rolling in the Deep” spent seven weeks at the summit beginning in May.

 

MTV VMAs Boost Adele, Beyonce on Billboard 200; RHCP Scores Big Debut

 

“Deep,” which won Adele three trophies at the VMAs, and “Like” appear on the singer/songwriter’s sophomore album “21,” which, with 3.3 million copies sold in the U.S. since its February release, ranks as 2011’s top-selling set.

Similar to “Deep,” “Like” is receiving multi-format radio support, lifting into the top 10 on the Adult Pop Songs airplay chart (12-10), while advancing 6-5 on Triple A; 18-16 on Adult Contemporary; and, 24-19 on Pop Songs.

“Like” dethrones Maroon 5‘s “Moves Like Jagger,” featuring Christina Aguilera (1-2), after the latter track ruled the Hot 100 for a week. While “Jagger” slips 1-3 on Digital Songs (207,000, down 5%), it jumps into the top 10 (11-8) on Radio Songs (86 million, up 22%).

Foster the People‘s “Pumped Up Kicks” holds at No. 3 on the Hot 100. The former Alternative Songs topper bullets at No. 2 on Digital Songs (218,000, up 12%) and reaches the top 10 on Radio Songs (70 million, up 16%). It also enters the Pop Songs top 10 (11-10).

LMFAO‘s former six-week No. 1 “Party Rock Anthem,” featuring Lauren Bennett and GoonRock, dips 2-4 on the Hot 100, while Nicki Minaj‘s “Super Bass” rebounds 6-5. “Anthem” has led Billboard’s Songs of the Summer running tally the past four weeks; check Billboard.com tomorrow for the coronation of this year’s top summer title and the 10-position seasonal survey’s final order.

Fellow VMA standout performer Lady Gaga likewise benefits from a buzzworthy appearance on the telecast. After she opened the festivities with “You and I,” the song charges 16-6 on the Hot 100 – becoming her 11th top 10, her entire output of singles promoted to radio. The cut climbs 8-4 on Digital Songs (175,000, up 61%) and 37-23 on Radio Songs (41 million, up 32%).

 

Does Gaga View Her Makeupless Harper’s Bazaar Cover as ‘Artificial?’

 

Bad Meets Evil‘s “Lighters,” featuring Bruno Mars, drops 4-7 on the Hot 100, above Cobra Starship‘s “You Make Me Feel …,” featuring Sabi, which zooms 18-8. After the group performed the latter title on the VMA pre-show, it flies 13-5 on Digital Songs (159,000, up 75%) and 24-20 on Radio Songs (45 million, up 15%). “Feel” is the act’s second top 10; “Good Girls Go Bad,” featuring Leighton Meester, reached No. 7 in 2009.

Rounding out the Hot 100’s top 10 are two former No. 1s: Pitbull‘s “Give Me Everything,” featuring Ne-Yo, Afrojack and Nayer (9-9) and Katy Perry‘s “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” (5-10). Although her streak may be in danger of ending, Perry extends her record run to 69 consecutive weeks in the top 10. The stretch encompasses the five No. 1 singles from her album “Teenage Dream,” dating to the No. 2 of lead single “California Gurls,” featuring Snoop Dogg, the week of May 29, 2010.

A hefty 16 titles debut on the Hot 100 – half from Lil Wayne‘s album “Tha Carter IV,”, which, as previously reported, rockets onto the Billboard 200 at No. 1 with 964,000 copies sold. “Mirror,” featuring Bruno Mars, leads the way at No. 16, entering Digital Songs at No. 6 with 149,000 downloads sold.

 

Lil Wayne’s ‘Carter IV’ Debuts at No. 1 With 964,000 Copies

 

As three titles previously on the Hot 100 join his eight newcomers, Weezy places 11 songs total on this week’s chart, tying David Cook and Taylor Swift for the most simultaneously-charting songs by a soloist in the list’s 53-year history. Only the Beatles have held more concurrent positions, having placed 14 songs on the April 11, 1964, Hot 100 (as well as 12 each the frames before and after).

The VMAs also reveal their influence in the form of Hot 100 debuts, including Beyonce, whose “Love on Top” begins at No. 20 (and No. 10 on Digital Songs with sales of 113,000, marking the first Digital Songs top 10 from her album “4”). Beyonce performed the song on the VMAs (and then unsnapped her jacket and rubbed her belly, a move that served to announce her pregnancy).

 

Jay-Z and Beyonce Are ‘Ecstatic’ About Pregnancy, Says The-Dream

 

The No. 20 Hot 100 launch of “Love” is Beyonce’s second-highest among her 29 solo career entries; only “Ring the Alarm” began at a higher rung (No. 12, 2006).

Young the Giant additionally parlays a VMA performance into a Hot 100 arrival, as “My Body” starts at No. 65 (42,000 downloads, up 220%). The track reached No. 5 on Alternative Songs in April.

All charts, including the Hot 100, Digital Songs, Radio Songs and Songs of the Summer will be refreshed tomorrow (Sept. 8) on Billboard.com.

Adele Makes Billboard Hot 100 History With ‘Someone Like You’

by Keith Caulfield, L.A. | September 09, 2011 4:30 EDT

CHART HIGHLIGHTS:

— “Someone Like You” jumped from 19-1 on the Hot 100 chart.

— “Someone” is Adele’s second No. 1 on the chart, after “Rolling in the Deep.”

— “Rolling” is the top-selling single of the year in the U.S., with 5 million.

— And “21” is the year’s biggest album, with 3.3 million.

— Adele’s label, Columbia, expects “21” will shift a total of 4.5 million by end of the year.

With Adele‘s leap from No. 19 to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week with “Someone Like You,” the singer achieves the biggest jump to No. 1 in the chart’s 53-year history that wasn’t spurred by the release of a single.

 

Every other larger vault to No. 1 in Hot 100 history came as a result of a single arriving to the market. That includes the chart’s greatest jump, Kelly Clarkson’s 97-1 leap in 2009 with “My Life Would Suck Without You” or what was the tally’s biggest climb until 2002: the Beatles’ 27-1 rise with “Can’t Buy Me Love” in 1964.

 

Adele Brings a Ballad Back to the Hot 100 Summit

 

“Someone,” on the other hand, zoomed to No. 1 thanks to buzz generated by Adele’s MTV Video Music Awards performance on Aug. 28. The song, her second No. 1, was released to digital retailers on Feb. 22 as a track on her XL/Columbia “21” album, which arrived the same day.

 

“Someone” sold 275,000 downloads, according to Nielsen SoundScan, in the week ending Sept. 4 (up 191%). Its huge sales increase came courtesy of the song’s water cooler-worthy performance on the most-watched VMAs in history. On the show, Adele sang the heartbreaking ballad on a darkened stage, accompanied by a sparse piano.

 

MTV VMA Ratings: Biggest Audience Ever

 

“Adele’s all about the music,” Columbia senior VP of sales Steve Kennedy says. “She and her manager, Jonathan Dickins, wanted to get across in the VMA performance that the music was more important than anything else.”

 

“With all the bombastic theatrics going on that night,” Kennedy continues, “we felt that her very simple set would completely stand out [against] everything else.”

 

MTV executive VP of music and talent Amy Doyle echoes Kennedy’s thoughts. “Adele is one of those rare artists that can command a stage with just the power of her voice and subtle nuances of her vocals. ‘Someone Like You’ is timeless and we’re proud that we could provide her with the world’s largest stage to introduce the song to a global audience.”

 

The staging of Adele’s VMA performance — and its impact – recalls her BRIT Awards turn on Feb. 15. On the U.K.’s equivalent of the Grammy Awards, she sang “Someone” in a similar setting, and it immediately caused a huge surge on the official U.K. charts. The next week, “Someone” vaulted 47-1 on the singles tally while “Rolling in the Deep,” the album’s first single, moved 5-4 the same week.

 

Adele Ties Beatles Record on U.K. Charts

 

Meanwhile, on the U.K. albums chart that week, “21” held at No. 1 for a fourth frame and its predecessor, “19,” climbed 6-4. With those stats, she became the first living act since the Beatles in January 1964 to have two titles simultaneously in the top five on both the U.K. singles and albums charts.

 

The No. 1 Hot 100 triumph of “Someone” follows a seven-week run at the top by the lead single from “21,” the multiformat smash “Rolling in the Deep.” Earlier this year, when it debuted on the Latin Songs chart, it became the most widely crossed-over song of the past 25 years. The Latin tally was the record 12th Nielsen BDS-based Billboard airplay chart on which “Rolling” appeared.

 

“Rolling in the Deep’ broke down a lot of doors with regards to multiformat play,” Kennedy says. “‘Someone Like You’ is about to crash through them all again.”

 

“Rolling” is currently the top-selling song of the year in the United States, with 5 million sold. Adele’s “21” is also the year’s biggest album, with 3.3 million.

 

Columbia expects that “21” will continue to sell at a fast clip, projecting that the album could shift a total of 4.5 million by the end of the year and between 5 million and 6 million by March 2012. The latter sum would include whatever sales bump the singer will likely receive from the Feb. 12 Grammy Awards — where Adele seems a lock to take home at least a few trophies.

With its lyrics imploring revelers to “get up, get down, put your hands up to the sound!,” LMFAO‘s “Party Rock Anthem,” featuring Lauren Bennett and GoonRock, is, fittingly, Billboard’s 2011 song of the summer.

 

The hi-energy dance track tops this year’s Billboard’s Songs of the Summer chart, which ranks the most popular songs based on cumulative performance on the weekly Billboard Hot 100 from Memorial Day through Labor Day (specifically, the charts dated June 11 through Sept. 17, 2011).

“We created a tool for people to use to get hyped up at their party, on their boat, at the club, at the gym, etc. People love it… it feels amazing!” the group’s Redfoo told Billboard exclusively upon hearing the news. “Because of how hard we worked on mixing the record and the dedication that went into the video, it was clear from the beginning that our goal was to take the party rock sound to number one.”

“Anthem” took the lead for good on the Songs of the Summer running tally the previous four weeks after Adele‘s “Rolling in the Deep” had topped the survey the first seven weeks of the season.

 

See The Songs Of the Summer 1985-2010

 

“Anthem” spent six weeks at No. 1 on the Hot 100 beginning July 16. Following its Hot 100 reign, it held the No. 2 position for three weeks, helping to secure its spot atop the final Songs of the Summer countdown.

 

LMFAO & Swizz Beatz Sizzle At Billboard.com’s Summer Blowout

 

The song was also the only title to rank inside the Hot 100’s top 10 in each of the 15 weeks measured for the Songs of the Summer chart.

 

LMFAO is the first duo to wear the seasonal crown since another ubiquitous dance anthem, Los Del Rio’s “Macarena (Bayside Boys Mix),” became Billboard’s song of the summer for 1996 (after topping the Hot 100 for 14 weeks that year).

 

“Anthem” earns coveted song of the summer status over 2011 runner-up “Give Me Everything” by Pitbull, featuring Ne-Yo, Afrojack and Nayer. The latter song capped the July 9 Hot 100 and spent 14 weeks in the top 10 during the Songs of the Summer tracking period.

 

Adele’s “Deep” claims the No. 3 position on the Songs of the Summer chart, having spent the last four of its seven weeks at No. 1 on the Hot 100 during the seasonal ranking’s chart span. The multi-format smash ranked in the Hot 100’s top 10 for 11 weeks of the Songs of the Summer recap span.

 

Adele’s ‘Someone Like You’ Soars To No. 1 On Hot 100

 

Nicki Minaj‘s “Super Bass” places at No. 4 on the Songs of the Summer survey. The pop/rap jam began the season at No. 11 on the Hot 100 and spent the rest of the summer (14 weeks) lodged in the top 10, peaking for two weeks at No. 3.

 

Katy Perry‘s “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” rounds out the 2011 Songs of the Summer top five at No. 5. Perry won last year’s summer songs contest courtesy of “California Gurls,” featuring Snoop Dogg, which took the 2010 title on the strength of a six-week Hot 100 rule.

 

While she doesn’t prevail this year, this summer brought Perry a string of achievements and publicity, most notably her becoming the first female artist in the Hot 100‘s 53-year history to bank five No. 1s from one album. (“Friday” was the fifth Hot 100 leader (two weeks at No. 1; 12 in the top 10) from “Teenage Dream,” following “California,” the title cut, “Firework” and “E.T.,” featuring Kanye West).

As “E.T.” ranks at No. 9 on the Songs of the Summer chart, Perry is the only artist to boast two titles on the tally. While Eminem locked down two spots on last year’s chart (“Love the Way You Lie,” featuring Rihanna, No. 2; “Not Afraid,” No. 10), Perry is the first woman to double up since Rihanna in summer 2008 (“Take a Bow,” No. 3; “Disturbia,” No. 9).

It’s Official: Lil Wayne’s ‘Carter IV’ Debuts at No. 1 With 964,000 Copies

by Keith Caulfield, L.A. | September 06, 2011 6:35 EDT

Getty

It’s official: Lil Wayne‘s “Tha Carter IV” has sold 964,000 in its first week according to Nielsen SoundScan, easily enabling its No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200 chart. It is his third No. 1 album following “Tha Carter III” and “I Am Not a Human Being.”

“Carter IV” earns the biggest sales week for a hip-hop album (or any set by a male artist) since his own “Carter III” bowed with 1.01 million on the June 28, 2008 chart. “Carter IV” also marks 2011’s second-biggest frame, behind Lady Gaga‘s 1.11 million debut with “Born This Way.”

 

Lil Wayne Breaks iTunes’ Single-Week Album Sales Record

 

Of course, Gaga’s first week was bolstered by two days’ worth of 99-cent sale pricing from AmazonMP3’s store. “Carter IV” managed to sell nearly a million without such tactics. It’s estimated that AmazonMP3 sold upwards of 440,000 downloads of its 99-cent “Born This Way” album.

 

Lil Wayne’s ‘Tha Carter IV’: Track-By-Track Review

 

Speaking of downloads, “Carter IV” shifted 362,000 digital copies in its first week. That marks the second-largest digital sales week of all time for an album; again, behind “Born This Way,” with 662,000 downloads.

However, while SoundScan does not disclose retailer-specific figures, sources say “Carter” easily broke the U.S. iTunes Store’s single-week album sales record, with around 345,000 sold via iTunes.

 

Lil Wayne Closes 2011 MTV VMAs Like a Rock Star: Watch

 

“Tha Carter IV” is off to a fast start courtesy of both a hot single and an eve-of-release performance by Wayne on the highly rated MTV Video Music Awards telecast (Aug. 28). His “How to Love” single is his first top 10 hit as a lead artist on the Pop Songs chart since 2008, when “Lollipop” (“Tha Carter III’s” first single) went to No. 5. “Love” is in fact only his second top 10 on the Pop Songs tally, after “Lollipop.”

Also, figure that the “Carter” name brand carries weight with fans, much in the same way the word “blueprint” makes Jay-Z aficionados take notice. He’s had three “Blueprint” albums to date: all debuted at No. 1 with over 400,000 sold in their respective first weeks.

A full recap of the week’s top 10 selling albums and digital songs will follow on the morning of Wednesday, Sept. 7.

Adam Levine may be Maroon 5’s outspoken frontman, but as the band’s keyboardist Jesse Carmichael reveals to Billboard.com, Levine isn’t always on-point about their song selections.

 

“In the past we had this barometer, which was that if Adam hated a song, we knew it was going to be successful,” Carmichael tells Billboard.com in a video interview (watch below).

 

 

 

Hence their concern over “Moves Like Jagger,” with Levine recalling, “I loved ‘Jagger.’ I was really worried it wasn’t going to be big. I liked it a lot.” But the band had nothing to worry about, as their Christina Aguilera collab hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 last week.

“It was one of those songs that was definitely a risk; it’s a bold statement,” Levine tells Billboard.com. “We’ve never really released a song like that. But it’s exciting to do something different, do something new. I’m just happy everyone likes it.”

 

Something else that makes Levine happy? His show, “The Voice,” and its acceptance of all types of relationships.

 

“‘The Voice’ was very open in the beginning about peoples’ relationships regardless of what they were,” he says. “I think that’s a great thing. Rather than slamming ‘[American] Idol,’ which I don’t think that I’m doing, I’m more kind of applauding ‘The Voice’ for doing that and being courageous enough. This really isn’t a debate, because they just don’t do that on ‘American Idol,’ which is totally their choice. However, they promote certain relationships and they don’t promote others which I think is kind of shitty.”

 

In addition to “The Voice,” which makes it return this winter with Levine on the coaching panel, Maroon 5 has plans to hit the studio at the end of the year. Carmichael’s personal wish for the sessions include a collaboration with another big-voiced diva: Adele, who knocked the band off their Hot 100 summit this week.

Maroon 5 also recently created their own Snapple flavor, “Tea Will Be Loved,” that includes a fusion of different five fruit flavors chosen by Maroon’s five members. The flavor is a collaboration effort of Snapple and Maroon 5 to benefit Feeding America which will help to provide 1,750,000 meals to those in need. The brand and band will also donate $250,000 to Feeding America, which supplies food to more than 37 million Americans each year.
