What's the stats?
Daniel Powter had a 47% increase in values this week, up 8 on the CHR chart. Our biggest loser was Beyonce Knowles dropping 20% this week. Speaking of dropping... Madonna was the most dropped artist this week. Think her confession on the dance floor was "Nobody Likes me"? Joining the charts this week is E-40 and Rob Zombie. Deadeye Rocords is still leading the pack, with less than 700 thousand lead. It's still anyone's game.
The first bonus of the season happens next week. Who will win the gold? We'll let you know next week.
