WGO: Chart Watch, Hot Debuts (6/30/2012)

Below denotes songs and artists of note featured on the Billboard Hot 100 (USA), Hot Dance/Club Play (USA), Heatseekers Singles & Albums Charts (USA), UK Hot (UK), Japan and KPOP (South Korea) charts. Italicized items have been discussed on Melismatic.

From now on, I will also include the United World Chart (UWC) to help put in perspective how popular the tracks are on a global scale. UWC tracks songs by paid download, single sales and overall airplay all around the world. It's very interesting to see songs popular in the American Top 40 tend to take the lead, but songs from the UK, Australia, Japan and Korea also rank high when put into proper perspective.

New Additions to the Hot 100 of Note:
21. Justin Bieber - As Long As You Love Me (feat. Big Sean)
Stay tuned for actual thoughts -- suffice to say, I dig it.

75. Cher Lloyd - Want U Back 
My thoughts are here. Happy to see this chart in the US. Another proof positive the US is gobbling up UK X-Factor (and not it's own X-Factor...).

91. Matchbox Twenty - She's So Mean
M20 is a cornerstone of my life and it's really hard for them to go wrong for my ears. "She's So Mean" doesn't offer such instant gratification as their previous hits (especially during the Yourself Or Someone Like You era - what a great album!), but if Rob and the boys wanna rock, I'll be there. Grower.

96. Lee Brice - Hard To Love
Listenable country -- not too twangy for those of us of the pop persuasian.
