  • David Cook’s upcoming album was made available for pre-order, with “Light On” as an automatic download.   That means it shot up the charts this week.   It re-entered the Hot 100 at #60, Hot Digital Tracks chart at 29 and Hot Digital Songs chart at #35. It climbs the Pop 100 – 57-51, Pop Airplay – 57-51 and Hot Adult Top 40 – 36-29 (it debuted their last week–HAC radio stations are picking up the song). “Time of My Life” continues to hold on to the #1 postion on Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks.
  • Jennifer Hudson’s album Jennifer Hudson remains in the Top 10 at #9 on the Billboard 200 and at #3 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Album.   The single, “Spotlight” debuts on Rhythmic Top 40 at #38.   It climbs 28-24 on the Hot 100, stays at #11 on Hot 100 Airplay, climbs 67-66 on Pop 100,   but loses its #1 position on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Airplay, 1-2.   It dips 5-6 on Mainstream R&B/Hip Hop but holds on to the #1 position on Hot Adult R&B Airplay.   Not that she cares about any of this right now…
