WGO: Chart Watch, United World Chart, Hot Debuts (7/14/2012)

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.

New Additions to the Hot 100 of Note:
18. Owl City & Carly Rae Jepsen - Good Time
This debuted in the Top 20, officially making both Owl City & Carly Rae more than one-hit machines. It's much poppier than Owl City's previous fare (but still synthy). For some cynical reason, I wanted to dislike this, but I can't. A great summer jam.

80. Maroon 5 - Wipe Your Eyes
A bonus song from Overexposed, written & produced by J.R. Rotem. It's the "Overexposed" version of the third single ballad M5. Nothing to dislike -- it's much more classic Maroon than the album's singles.

81. Nero - Promises
The fourth (British) single by UK synth group Nero is a doozy and already a certified hit on the Heat Seeking/Bubbling Under Charts. It's already gone to #1 in the UK last summer. We shall see if America is also digging, but for now - I certainly do.

95. Linkin Park - Lost In the Echo
Linkin Park's most compelling single in a long time, mostly thanks to the rap provided by Mike Shinoda, who co-produced this one with Rick Rubin.

97. Big Time Rush - Windows Down
America's main contributor to the Boy Band Bonanza 2012 -- Nickelodeon production Big Time Rush (or are they BTR these days, a la NKOTB?) -- re-assert themselves as a force to be reckoned with versus One Direction & The Wanted by gleefully using a British sample in Blur's "Song 2". More on this one shortly...
