Week 11: Turbulence Ahead
Shift in eTracks make for a stormy rest of the season
LOS ANGELES, CA Friday Mar.16.2007 /FantasyMusicLeague.com/ -- We've come to week 11 of our FML Winter season, and from the look of things, we may be store for a bumpy ride.
Our Alternative eTracks charts have gone a bit haywire this week: The Shins are out and the Red Hot Chili Peppers are back in at the #1 spot, Fall Out Boy and The Killers have held steady onto positions 2 and 3, and Bloc Party has found a home on this week's top 5 - the band jumped up 12 spots from last week's position at #16. The Shins were bumped out of their spot, but the journey was short, the "Wincing The Night Away" stars still made it into 5th place.
We have some new faces on the Alternative scene - Mickey Avalon came in at #16 with his self-titled album "Mickey Avalon," and the Cold War Kids joined the NMC at #17 with their debut album, "Robbers & Cowards."
Justin Timberlake is still riding high atop the CHR charts with "What Goes Around." Beyonce Knowles is back at #2, exchanging places with Daughtry since last week. Nelly Furtado's "Say It Right" has earned her a #4 spot, and My Chemical Romance is fighting for the right to stay in the top 5 with their single "Welcome To The Black Parade."
We have a new Country queen: Grammy-winner Carrie Underwood has hit number one on the NMC eTracks charts this week with her single "Wasted" off of the hit album,
"Some Hearts." Trace Adkins is at #2 with "Ladies Love Country Boys," Rodney Atkins scored the #3 spot with "Watching You," and Brooks & Dunn and Gary Allan round out Country's top 5 this week.
Justin Timberlake is the new top dog on Hot AC, snagging #1 spot with "What Goes Around." Jessica Simpson beau John Mayer was at #2 this week, the Red Hot Chili Peppers have made another eTrack appearance with their hit "Snow" at #3. The Fray and Nickelbackhave taken a bit of a beating since last week but have managed to stay in Hot AC's top 5.
Third time's a charm for JT. The "Sexyback" singer, who is still reigning champ on the Urban charts, this time forthe single "My Love." Beyonce Knowles and Akon have held on tight to their 2nd and 3rd place ranks, with Robin Thicke and Ludacris making up the rest of this week's Urban top 5.
Stevemoose is still in the lead with "glastonbury3," followed by Fetzmonger's "Deadeye Records" and amarpan's
"Digital Roasters." It's been a tight race, so make sure to check in to see's who's on top next time.
Pockets feeling a litle empty? Score yourself some cash with our Referral Program. Here's how it works: When you're a registered player, you can earn cash (and soon, cool stuff!) for inviting your friends to play the Fantasy Music League.
You earn two ways: by referring people, and when your referrals, in turn, refer people. The only requirement is that you and your referrals register a label to play in the Open League.
