This weeks battle for the number one spot on AMP’s Top Song pitted some of the best and brightest rising stars in pop, hiphop and r&b against one another.
However, only one of them can take the top spot. So will it be [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Far East Movement[/lastfm] again or will [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jeremih[/lastfm]’s “Down On Me,” [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Nicki Minaj[/lastfm]’s “Moment 4 Life” or [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Edward Maya[/lastfm]’s “Stereo Love” emerge from behind and claim victory?
There’s only one way to find out!
15. Lady Gaga – “Born This Way”
- After a killer show at the STAPLES Center on Monday, Lady Gaga got to celebrate being 25. Now she can celebrate narrowly making it onto AMP’s Top Songs by having the 15th most played song this week!
14. Chris Brown – “Yeah 3x”
- Yes. Yes. Yes. Chris Brown continues to hold steady on the list despite his PR nightmare from last week. If that’s not talent we don’t know what is.
- “Memories” is still vibrant in our memory banks because it’s been getting regular airplay since last year and it doesn’t seem like it’s going anywhere, anytime soon.
- If being the only girl in the world also means having multiple songs on the Top Songs this week, then Rihanna is right on track.
- When we think “No Hands” we used to think about driving, but now we think about Waka Flocka Flame, which means the man doing it right.
- Britney Spears debuted her 7th studio album Femme Fatale this week, to rave reviews. However, her lackluster Good Morning America and Jimmy Kimmel Live! performances are what really got people talking.
- If any one band on this list could turn us into catatonic dance zombies, LMFAO would totally be our first choice.
8. Bruno Mars – “Grenade”
- Bruno isn’t battling for the number one spot anymore, but he’s made it perfectly clear that in terms of AMP’s Top Songs, he’s not getting booted off the list!
- In her recent interview with Rolling Stone Magazine Rihanna brought up the logistics of her kinky side. Let’s just say it makes “S&M” sound mild in comparison.
6. Pitbull – “Hey Baby (Drop It to the Floor)”
- Pitbull dropped to the sixth place this week. Not that it’s a bad thing, cause he’s still pretty high on the list, but for a guy that dominated the list for so many weeks, you think he’d be ready for a comeback.
- Lil Wayne recently stated that his goals for 2011 include banking $50-million after taxes. If he pulls it off he certainly will be “Right Above It.”
4. Edward Maya – “Stereo Love”
- Edward Maya can’t figure out if he wants to be in 3rd or 4th place, and he’s been yo-yoing between the two spots for weeks. Perhaps, next week he’ll pick a number and stick with it, but until then you can hear more from him in the interview McCabe did.
- “Down On Me” is the sort of edgy/naughty song that 50-Cent would love to be featured in, so it’s no wonder he worked on it with Jeremih.
2. Far East Movement – “Rocketeer″
- Like a Rocketeer, Far East Movement know how to jettison to the top, landing in the second place.
1. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Nicki Minaj[/lastfm] – “Moment 4 Life”
- Nicki Minaj knows how to capture a moment, and did exactly that by taking the number one spot with her song “Moment 4 Life.”
