CHART SPOTLIGHT. By now, we’re all familiar with the LA based electro hop recording duo LMFAO. Their “Party Rock Anthem” finally ascended to the top of the Billboard Hot 100, in addition to topping the tallies in countries such as New Zealand, the UK, Austria, Brazil and Denmark.
The group has already managed to produce a follow up – “Champagne Showers” which features the English singer-songwriter Natalia Kills on guest vocals. Kills issued her debut set Perfectionist on the German market this April – it contains her debut single “Mirrors.”
Rumours say that the third single off LMFAO’s album Sorry for Party Rocking will be “Best Night.” Featuring will.i.am, GoonRock and Eva Simons as guests, the track is bound to hit the charts. Nevertheless, expect “Party Rock Anthem” to last although the summer!

CHART REFLECTION. Imagine the past week at the Lopez-Anthony house. First there was the accidental nip slip on German television, when J-Lo was in Europe to promote her latest Love? album. Some say she might not return to American Idol next season. Why, you might ask. According to celeb mag In Touch, it’s Marc Anthony urging his wife “to spend more time with him and their children.” Then there’s the rumor saying that $12m isn’t enough compensation to sit at the judge’s table alongside Steven Tyler.
WelcheMusic closely monitors the career of Jennifer Lopez and posed the question if she would ever return to her former glory this March. It turned out to be more than true as she hasn’t been this hot in ages. Currently charting with “I’m Into You,” she does seem to have a bit of a challenge coping without Pitbull. While “On the Floor” managed to climb the top three, the former track peaked at No.72 on the Hot 100. Co-written by Taio Cruz, Lil Wayne and the Norwegian duo StarGate, this is certainly one of the best r’n’b tracks of the year.
We’re certainly looking forward to the next single and hope that Jennifer Lopez indeed returns to American Idol for another season.
