Bummed on Billboard
The most recent Billboard Club/Dance chart sucks, frankly, and I'm only happy about Frenchie Davis' ascent with "Love's Got a Hold on Me," at number 15, and it truly has a hold on the dance floor right now with true diva energy.
The 2012 dance chart for the year is also a huge disappointment. It's not that the year's dance music had a poor showing; it's where the better songs charted! Ok, there's Florence + the Machine at #3 with "Say My Name," but you have to scroll down to #18 to get to the first dance tune that really excites me, that being "Timebomb" by Kylie Minogue. Madonna's "Girl Gone Wild"? Number 44. "Marry the Night" by Lady Gaga? Number 47. "If It Wasn't for Love" sung by Deborah Cox? Number 50. Believe me, this lackluster listing could use a big fabulousness infusion.
So, in light of all this, will you settle right now for openly gay artist Cheyenne Jackson's very happy preview of his music video for "Don't Wanna Know"? This video looks and sounds kind of poptastic!. Have a good look and pray for dance mixes! Good ones this time.
