WGO: Chart Watch, United World Chart, Hot Debuts (7/21/2012)

Below denotes songs and artists of note featured on the Billboard Hot 100 (USA), CHR/Top 40 (US Radio), 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:
58. P!NK - Blow Me (One Last Kiss)
Not quite as instantly classic as some of her previous hits, following on her slightly less edgy but still chart winning singles a la "Raise Your Glass". It's definitely a grower -- the chorus gets more hooky with each listen.

97. Trey Songz - 2 Reasons (feat. T.I.) (DEBUT)
Handclappy party track (if you can get over the fact that the "two reasons" he's coming to the part for are the b*tches and the drinks...eye roll). Even still, I'm am preferring Trey's material to Chris Brown's material these days by a long shot.

99. Pitbull - Get It Started (feat. Shakira) (DEBUT)
Well, it's immensely more listenable than that "Back In Time" shlock. Still very run of the mill Pitbull party track. Good for the clubs, for certainty.
