For a second there, I thought about just copying and pasting the lyrics from Poi E and letting that be the Chart Attack post for the week. The song moves up four places this week to number three, which hopefully means that it’ll now have the momentum it needs to go all the way to the top. B.O.B is still sitting pretty but frankly we can do a lot better than this (Paramore’s The Only Exception is at least twice as good as Airplanes) and Poi E getting to the top has got to happen sooner than later so let’s do this.
I told you guys that the new Miley Cyrus song was going to make a dent in the chart and this week it debuts at number five. She’s all grown up but obviously we aren’t since we’re falling for this second-rate shit. Further down the chart, Muse debut at 27 with a ridiculously titled new song, Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever). Not far below it at number 34 is a re-entry from Jamie Foxx, T.I. and Justin Timberlake with Winner. The song is ridiculously good and it’s no surprise considering that it was produced by The Y’s who have recently produced tracks for Rihanna, Esmee Denters and Ciara. On the Wikipedia page for the song it says that Foxx managed to get Timberlake on the track even though he wasn’t that interested: “I got him on the track—’cause he wasn’t gonna get on the track—I just literally said, ‘Man, my people suffered for 500 years. You owe me this.'” I’m guessing that this roughly translated to “you guys had it good with Dead and Gone and I want some of that too” (Dead and Gone was also produced by The Y’s Rob Knox so you can see how that works).
