Week 9: Top Dogs Staying Strong
Won't give up the bone
LOS ANGELES, CA Friday Sep.1.2006 /FantasyMusicLeague.com/ -- First, let me say congrats to all of last week's bonus pool winners...you guys are really tapping into the music mogul within.
Week 9 results are in, and Cee-lo ain't saying 'see-ya' anytime soon. Gnarls Barkley still has an unshakable foothold on his slot, coming in again at number 1. Nelly Furtado must have a thing for him too, because she simply won't budge from her number 2 position right next to the guy. Needless to say, the pair are the top revenue earners this week...again.
No doubt the MTV 2006 Video Music Awards will have an impact on charts to come, affecting bands like the Red Hot Chili Peppers, whose immensely popular "Dani, California" is up for Video of the Year. Also up for year's best are Christina Aguilera (#10 CHR, #18 Hot AC), and Panic! At The Disco (#3 CHR, #6 Hot AC, and #12 Alternative).
There's a couple of new faces on the Alternative charts: Breaking Benjamin at 19, and Death Cab For Cutie at number 20. There's a bunch of buzz on Benjamin, so keep an eye or two out. Also new this week are Fort Minor and Five for Fighting.
If I we're y'all, I'd be looking out for urban artist Rick Ross. He's taking off in a big way.
Amarpan is still in the lead, with Stevemoose and Daldog trailing ever-so-slightly behind. There's a big drop behind the top three, so maybe changes need to be made in order to close the green gap.
I say, great reward takes great risk. Make it happen people.
