T-Pain featuring Lily Allen and Wiz Khalifa’s ‘5 O’Clock’ was the fastest rising track on last.FM’s Hyped Tracks chart last week. Following ‘Best Love Song,’ the track was the second official single off T-Pain’s fourth studio album Revolver, released 6th December. The track was issued in the US at the end of September, yet it wasn’t released in the UK until 4th December. It has reached the top ten in both territories.
Lily Allen’s contribution is an original sample of the vocalist’s track ‘Who’d Have Known’ off It’s Not Me, It’s You (2009). The music video was shot in De Wallen, Amsterdam’s red-light district. The third single – ‘Bang Bang Pow Pow’ – featuring Lil Wayne, was released last month.
‘5 O’Clock’ shot in Amsterdam, Holland.

CHART SPOTLIGHT. Chris Brown currently climbs the Swedish singles tally with “Yeah 3x.” Originally issued in October last year, the track has amassed one million downloads in the US.
Everyone’s not happy about the success. A bitter tweet by producer Calvin Harris addressed that Brown stole the hook from his 2009 hit “I’m Not Alone.” “Yeah 3x” was the first single to be lifted off his fourth set F.A.M.E. It is actually Chris Brown’s second biggest hit in the UK ever. The track climbs 8-6 this week (13/3) and could very well beat the No.4 peak of “Forever” back in 2008.
Brown got his breakthrough back in 2005 with “Run It” which hit the No.1 spot in the US. In 2007, he secured another chart-topper with “Kiss Kiss” (feat. T-Pain).
In 2008, he managed to get a world-wide hit with “No Air” together with Jordin Sparks. Chris Brown currently has two hits in the UK top 10 – “Champion” (No.6) and “Yeah 3x” (No.8).
CHART SPOTLIGHT. Originally released in November 2010, Flo Rida’s “Turn Around (5, 4, 3, 2, 1)” makes its official debut on the Swedish singles tally this week at No.54. The Haiti-American rapper and singer Flo Rida, née Tramar Tillard (1979), got his breakthrough in 2007 with the US No.1 “Low” (feat. T-Pain). He has released three studio albums to date and was the first one to break Ke$ha on “Right Round” – a No.1 hit in 2009.
His collaboration with David Guetta yielded one top ten hit earlier this year, but “Turn Around” only made it to No.98 on the Billboard Hot 100. The track reached the top twenty in Australia and Germany.
WelcheMusic is eager to see if the follow-up single “Who Dat Girl” (featuring Akon) might just changed that. Released as the follow-up to “Turn Around,” it has so far peaked at No.29 in the US.
