Week 6: FML Competition Heats Up
Glastonbury3 overtakes Deadeye this week
LOS ANGELES, CA Friday Feb.9.2007 /FantasyMusicLeague.com/ -- The FML tide has shifted this week, putting our gane into high gear. Stevemoose's well-strategized roster has put the label at the top, ousting Fetzmonger's unstoppable Deadeye Records from second place.
But with just $69,000 separating the two labels, it's still anyone's game. Amarpan's Digital Roasters label has also done well for itself this week, earning a weekly average of $37,403,333.
One look at our charts and you know we're in for a rollercoaster of a season. The Red Hot Chili Peppers are on top once again in Alternative, with My Chemical Romance and Fall Out Boy coming in right behind the veteran band.
Angels & Airwaves and Sparta both got a big boost on this week's charts, climbing up 11 and 7 spots, respectively. Alternative is also getting a visit from debut artists the Kooks at number 20, and the Silversun Pickups at number 17.
The Fray is still the mayor of CHR, with Beyonce Knowles taking over the number 2 spot. My Chemical Romance also did well on the CHR charts, jumping up 6 spots to land at number 5. The All-American Rejects enjoyed a 7 spot leap, sneaking into this week's top ten.
And we can welcome back Jim Jones, the Pussycat Dolls and Rob Thomas, all of whom paid our CHR charts a visit this week.
As far as Country goes, all you need to do is remember the three A's: Adkins, Aldean, and Atkins. Trace Adkins, Jason Aldean, and Rodney Atkins have been and still are the reigning champs of the genre, with Jason Michael Carroll and Gary Allan rounding out the top five.
The Fray has yet another stronghold over Hot AC. The "How To Save A Life" band has rocked it...literally. Justin Timberlake, Nickelback, Snow Patrol and John Mayer have also clung tightly to their top spots.
Timberlake still dominates the Urban scene, with the top ten looking very much the same as it did last week, with one not so minor excpetion: American Idol's Fantasia! She junped up 12 spots this week to hit number 6. Sterling Simms also popped up as a debut artist this week at number 20.
