Billboard Dance/Club Top 25 Chart, week ending 8/25/12
Rebecca Ferguson went from Liverpool secretary to music sensation via Britain's X Factor. She has now charted on US Billboard's dance/club chart at #25 with remixes of "Nothing's Real But Love." We welcome a new, true diva to the list.
Three spots abover her, "Perfect World" by Gossip gently descends to 22nd place after peaking at #8 while Cyndi Lauper again displays her true colors to clubland with "Sex Is in the Heel", #11 on the hit parade, two tiers up from last week's 13th spot. I expect it will make the top ten the next time we look.
"Timbomb," which was the #1 dance tune two weeks ago, charts at #9 this week, still pretty sensational and starring diva darling, Kylie Minogue.
Boys will be boys as Scissor Sisters' "Let's Have a Kiki" high-kicks its way from #18 to #6, Jack Shears bypassing Adam Lambert by but one spot as "Never Close Our Eyes" makes a blind leap from #10 last week to land in the current #7 position. You can open them now. Scissor Sisters' "Only the Horses" is still on board at #17.
Kelly Clarkson's "Dark Side" is this week's #1, with Madonna's rapidly rising "Turn Up the Radio" turning up in the hot #3 spot, likely to take over Kelly's throne on next occasion. "Spectrum" by Zedd featuring Matthew Koma is caught in the middle here at #2, not to be confused with "Spectrum (Say My Name)" by Florence & the Machine, up from #14 to #8. And that's the spectrum of the dance/club top-25 Billboard chart for this week.
