‘GLEE’ MARKS MILESTONE: The “Glee” cast becomes the second act in the Billboard Hot 100‘s 52-year history to total at least 100 chart entries.

With five new titles, including the Hot Shot Debut, its rendition of Florence + the Machine‘s “Dog Days Are Over” at No. 22, the ensemble ups its count to 102 visits, all since June 6, 2009.

The arrivals push the “Glee” troupe closer to Elvis Presley‘s record 108 appearances.

Here is the latest tally of the acts with the most Hot 100 hits:

Total Hot 100 Hits, Artist
108, Elvis Presley
102, “Glee” Cast
91, James Brown
74, Ray Charles
73, Aretha Franklin ( click here for more on the beloved Queen of Soul)

Included among the “Glee” cast’s five debuts this week is its “Glee”-make of Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes‘ “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” at No. 38. The song is the 34th former Hot 100 No. 1 that the act has returned to the chart. (The Black Eyed Peas‘ “The Time (Dirty Bit),” which incorporates the chorus of the 1987 “Dirty Dancing” theme song, soars 9-4).

On the Billboard 200, the “Glee” cast occupies two positions in the top five. “Glee: The Music, the Christmas Album” jumps 10-4 and “Glee, the Music: Season Two: Volume 4” debuts at No. 5.

The club and Justin Bieber are the only acts to double up in the top five this year, with the real-life high school-aged singer having bookended the April 10 top five with “My World 2.0” and the “My World” EP, respectively.

Prior to the “Glee” cast and Bieber, no artist had placed two albums in the Billboard 200’s top five simultaneously since Nelly in 2004.

BOOM BOOM POWER: As previously reportedKaty Perry‘s “Firework” soars to the top of the Hot 100 (2-1).

The song is the third to lead the list from Perry’s former Billboard 200 No. 1 album, “Teenage Dream.” “California Gurls,” featuring Snoop Dogg, reigned for six weeks starting on June 19 and the title cut began a two-week command the week of Sept. 17. (With the current chart week dated Dec. 18, Perry ushers in winter with a new Hot 100 leader, just as she welcomed summer and fall by topping the tally).

By notching a trio of toppers from “Teenage Dream,” Perry is the 10th woman in the Hot 100’s 52-year history to ascend to No. 1 with at least three songs from an album. Two of the artists have each earned the honor twice:

Whitney Houston, “Whitney Houston,” 1985-86
“Saving All My Love for You,” “How Will I Know,” “Greatest Love of All”

Madonna, “True Blue,” 1986-87
“Live to Tell,” “Papa Don’t Preach,” “Open Your Heart”

Whitney Houston, “Whitney,” 1987-88
“I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me),” “Didn’t We Almost Have It All,” “So Emotional,” “Where Do Broken Hearts Go”



Paula Abdul, “Forever Your Girl,” 1989-90
“Straight Up,” “Forever Your Girl,” “Cold Hearted,” “Opposites Attract”

Janet Jackson, “Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation 1814,” 1989-91
“Miss You Much,” “Escapade,” “Black Cat,” “Love Will Never Do (Without You)”

Mariah Carey, “Mariah Carey,” 1990-91
“Vision of Love,” “Love Takes Time,” “Someday,” “I Don’t Wanna Cry”

Mariah Carey, “Daydream,” 1995-96
“Fantasy,” “One Sweet Day,” with Boyz II Men, “Always Be My Baby”

Monica, “The Boy Is Mine,” 1998-99 (the last album prior to “Teenage Dream” by a female artist to yield three consecutive No. 1 radio singles on the Hot 100)
“The Boy Is Mine,” with Brandy, “The First Night,” “Angel of Mine”

Christina Aguilera, “Christina Aguilera,” 1999-2000
“Genie in a Bottle,” “What a Girl Wants,” “Come On Over Baby (All I Want Is You)”

Fergie, “The Dutchess,” 2006-07
“London Bridge,” “Glamorous,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry”

Rihanna, “Good Girl Gone Bad,” 2007-08
“Umbrella,” “Take a Bow,” “Disturbia”

Katy Perry, “Teenage Dream,” 2010
“California Gurls,” featuring Snoop Dogg, “Teenage Dream,” “Firework”




Perry and Paula Abdul are the only women to collect three Hot 100 No. 1s from an album in the same year. Abdul sent “Straight Up,” “Forever Your Girl” and “Cold Hearted” to the top spot in 1989.

Perry’s fourth Hot 100 leader (“I Kissed a Girl” ruled for seven weeks in 2008) is the seventh song with “fire” in its title to burn a path to No. 1. The track joins the Doors‘ “Light My Fire” (1967), Ohio Players’ “Fire” (1975), Vangelis’ “Chariots of Fire – Titles” (1982), John Parr’s “St. Elmo’s Fire (Man in Motion)” (1985), Billy Joel‘s “We Didn’t Start the Fire” (1989) andOwl City‘s “Fireflies” (2009).

  1. I see something actually fascinating about your internet web site so I saved to bookmarks .

  2. Who did you pay to do your blog? Its really nicely designed I bet that is why you get so much traffic!

  3. Hey, my hubby and I really like your blog. 🙂
    We’re both bloggers ourselves, and he insisted
    that I message you.

    We used to spend a bunch of time writing blog posts,
    giving are all, but we weren’t making much moolah,
    hehe. That is until we found this site: http://greurl.com/blog
    The guide (which is free for the next day or two I think)
    taught us how to actually turn our blog posts into
    COLD HARD CASH. Cool, right?!

    It took a couple days to get a hang of it,
    but now we’re making $5,000+ A MONTH…EACH!
    Give it a look, I hope it helps you as much
    as it did us. 🙂 http://greurl.com/blog
