Ke$ha's "Tik Tok" Breaking Records. 1st Female Artist To Spend At Least 8 Consecutive Weeks At # 1 On Billboard Since 1977


Ke$ha’s hot start hasn’t let up yet: “TiK ToK” stayed firmly planted at Number One on the Billboard Hot 100 for the eighth straight week. The Animal singer is now the first female artist since 1977 to have her debut single spend that much time consecutively atop the Hot 100, Reuters reports, with Debby Boone’s “You Light Up My Life” the last single to accomplish it. Boone’s debut single spent 10 weeks at Number One, so “TiK ToK” needs another three weeks at the top before another record is shattered.

It seems like only two tracks stand a chance of unseating “TiK ToK,” starting with Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Know,” which jumped from Number Eight to Number Three, marking the first time a country music band has made the Top Three since Lonestar’s “Amazed” in 2000. The other contender: The all-star 25th anniversary recording of “We Are the World,” which benefits Haiti relief efforts. That track, featuring Lil Wayne, Kanye West, the Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson and dozens more, made it's debut last night during NBC’s broadcast of the Winter Olympics’ Opening Ceremony.

Ke$ha is also responsible for the biggest digital single sales week by a female artist in history as “TiK ToK” was downloaded 610,000 times in the seven days following Christmas. The record for most digital sales in one week is currently held by Flo Rida’s “Right Round,” which features Ke$ha on the hook.

Animal’s Number One debut on the Billboard 200 initiated Ke$ha into a small club of female artists to have their first album top the charts. She also (possibly) defaced the historic Hollywood sign (though Ke$ha told Rolling Stone yesterday that she’s legally not allowed to discuss the prank).
