TMJ's Weekly Chart: Big re-entry by Kings Of Leon

It's week number 6 for Mariah Carey as she sits at the top once again with "Obsessed," matching the success she had last year when "Touch My Body" also spent six weeks at #1. It seems like "Obsessed" is on its way to become her longest stay at the top of the chart so far. But the competition is starting to catch up as Sharam moves up a spot with "She Came Along (Feat. Kid Cudi)," trading places with last week's runner-up "The One (Feat. Drake)" by Mary J. Blige which backs down to #3. Bigger news for Drake's solo single which is not only the biggest gainer of the week but also moves up four places to land inside the Top 10 with "Best I Ever Had," (#9).

Three new tracks, "I Gotta Feeling" by The Black Eyed Peas and "The World We Live In" by The Killers, enter the Top 20. The third song to make it also stands out as the biggest news this week and is the hot shot re-entry of "Notion" by Kings Of Leon which lands directly at #19 after making a one-week appearance back in October of last year. This is the band's 10th top 20 hit on the chart and, even though I'm not keeping the stats, it's certainly one of the biggest song re-entries so far (that I can remember).

The highest debut goes to the mega-collaboration track "Run This Town" by Jay-Z, Kanye West and Rihanna. New entries also for Jesse McCartney ("How Do You Sleep? (Feat. Ludacris)"), Metallica ("All Nightmare Long"), Depeche Mode ("Peace"), Snow Patrol ("The Planets Between Us") and Pearl Jam ("Brother"), all within the 90-100 range.

The biggest jump title is "Gimme Sympathy" by Metric, which after almost falling off the chart rebounds to #72. Big jumps also for Placebo ("Kitty Litter") and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs ("Heads Will Roll").

Two more songs fall into retirement this week: former #1 song "Swing Ya Rag (Feat. Swizz Beatz)" by T.I. and one of the longest-running songs on the chart "Heat" by Mariah Carey.

It's 90's throwback at the recurrent chart as Blackstreet shoots right up to the top with one of the biggest pop and R&B hits to-date: "No Diggity (Feat. Dr. Dre)," from the 1996 release Another Level.
