Billboard Charts 1/27/07

I’ve got this week’s Idol Billboard chart for you right here.

  • It was another slow sales week.   The #1 record on the Billboard 200  is “Dreamgirls” (featuring Jennifer Hudson) selling only  60, 064.   “Dreamgirls” should get a nice bounce next week–it won 3 Golden Globes this week, including Best Supporting Actress for Jennifer Hudson.
  • Kellie Pickler’s album “Small Town Girl” has gone gold.   Congratulations Kellie.   You can  watch Rosie O’Donnell present Kellie with her  gold record on The View here.      Kellie co-hosted Thursday and Friday’s show.   Here’s a clip of Kellie performing “I Wonder” on Friday’s show.
  • Congratulations  are in order for Taylor Hicks as well.   His CD, which shipped platinum, has been officially certified  platinum.  
  • Taylor Hicks drops out of the Top 50 this week.   However, recent guest spots on Larry King Live and the Bob Hope Golf Classic could give Taylor a bounce next week.  According to  Gray Charles, the  single “Just to Feel that Way”  will  start “rolling out to radio early next week on a rolling release schedule. The primary early target will be Adult Top 40 and Adult Contemporary stations. Decisions about how to target traditional Top 40 will happen a bit later.”
  • DAUGHTRY stays in the Top 5, coming in at #4.   The single “It’s Not Over” has climbed to #21 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #14 on the Pop 100.
  • Billboard Magazine features Bucky Covington’s single “A Different World” in Fred Bronson’s weekly Chart Watch  column.   “A Different World” entered Hot Country Songs at #57.
