WGO: Chart Watch, United World Chart, Hot Debuts (8/4/2012)

Below denotes songs and artists of note featured on the Billboard Hot 100 (USA), United World Chart, CHR/Top 40 (US Radio), Hot Dance/Club Play (USA), Heatseekers Singles 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:
12. Jason Aldean - Take A Little Ride
Pop listeners mostly know him for his gorgeous duet with Kelly Clarkson, but if you're into good ol' pop/crossover honkytonk -- "Take A Little Ride" will suit you nicely.

34. No Doubt - Settle Down

While I have some issues with it, it just gets better with every spin.

77. T.I. - Go Get It
Bass-heavy and ego-centric, T.I. returns to his CHR-friendly Rap Throne. Not really my thing, but I can see this dominating at post-Wiz Khalifa/2 Chainz American radio.

78. The Killers - Runaways
Etheral and sweeping, more "Human" than "Mr. Brightside", with more guitar. It gives me good U2 feels.

95. Dave Matthews Band - Mercy
Subtle and quite beautiful. I've never been much for DMB's relaxed rock but this is such a calming song. So many beautiful instrumental layers -- so much to listen to.
