On the Charts


            The sound of “Apple bottom jeans, boots with the fur” is enough to make everyone get in the party mood anytime and anywhere. This song, Low by Flo Rida and T-Pain, sold three million copies and was number one on iTunes for 14 weeks. Since both artists were born in Florida, they collaborated on the song and the result turned out to be the best-selling digital song ever. The verses have an “island” kind of vibe, mixed with hot lyrics that speed up and slow down, and clever lyrics and rhyming patterns.

            Exclusive (The Forever Edition) was the first CD album released in June 2008 by a popular artist, Chris Brown. With his exceptional dancing ability and catchy lyrics he wowed everyone. Forever by Chris Brown was the most popular song on his whole album, and was on iTunes Top 20 for 16 weeks as well. With catchy lyrics, beats that makes you move, and repetitive chorus, this song immediately turned out to be a great success. There were some other great tracks on the album, as well, like Kiss Kiss featuring T-Pain and Gimme Whatcha Got featuring Lil Wayne. However, some people thought the album was too plain with overly used topics. Additionally, a few of his songs, such as With You, became annoying after hearing about 3 times.
