CHART REFLECTION. It actually sounds too good to be true. Kanye West is rumored to show up as a producer on Justin Bieber’s upcoming album. According to Consequence of Sound, Bieber’s manager confirmed that West will contribute on several tracks on the upcoming album. Great news spread fast, and the story was just run by Billboard. Last August, Kanye West remixed the Justin Bieber track “Runaway Love.”
Justin Bieber’s album My World 2.0 was the fourth biggest selling album in the United States last year. His biggest Stateside hit to date is “Baby” featuring rapper Ludacris. It was also his biggest hit in the UK, reaching No.3. WelcheMusic will definitely follow this story while the rest of the world engage in Bieber’s relationship with Selena Gomez.
CHART SPOTLIGHT. The British r’n’b artist Taio Cruz sets a new record on the Billboard Hot 100. His debut hit “Break Your Heart,” jumps 53-1 in its second week, a record for a debut artist. The track features rapper Ludacris and topped the UK singles chart last September. The track sold 273,000 downloads in its first week. Prior to Cruz, Kelly Clarkson’s debut hit “A Moment Like This” jumped 52-1 in October 2002. So, WelcheMusic congrats on breaking that record Taio!
Coincidentally, Kelly Clarkson still has the record leap as “My Life Would Suck Without You” jumped 97-1 in one week last February. As Unrealitity TV reports, Cruz originally penned the track for X Factor and Girls Aloud member Cheryl Cole.

Cruz told The Sun that after Cole’s management stalled on accepting the song, he decided to release it himself. “I was asked to write two songs for Cheryl, one of which was ‘Break Your Heart’,” he explained. “But they took so long to get back that when they did, we had to tell them, ‘It’s currently radio playlisted, it’s not going to be very easy to get back!’ It was quite funny.”
