Lopez Tops Swedish Singles Tally as Melodifestivalen Fever Fades

CHART SPOTLIGHT. Following the Melodifestivalen frenzy, the Swedish singles tally slowly comes back “to normal.” Eric Saade’s “Popular” is replaced by Jennifer Lopez’ “On the Floor,” her first ever No.1 in this country.

Lady Gaga moves 6-3 with “Born this Way” in its eighth week, at close distance of beating her No.2 debut. A WelcheMusic favorite, Swedish singer Veronica Maggio matches her No.4 peak of “Jag kommer” which continues to climb after falling out of the top ten a few weeks ago.

Following the debut of her new music video, Britney Spears takes a leap from 28-13 with “Till the World Ends.” Her former hit “Hold It Against Me” spends a 12th week on the tally, moving 40-33. Her new set Femme Fatale unfortunately makes a 5-7 drop in its second week on the album chart.

A year ago, Eric Saade topped the singles chart with “Manboy” while Rolandz topped the album chart with Jajamen.
