Bigmac's Radio Rundown

Wow! Now who would've thought Timbaland would have 2 singles in the Top 100 of Billboard Hot 100 Charts? Thanks to an increase in downloads, "The Way I Are" has shot up 17 spots to #40 while Give It To Me drops 8 spots to #26 The man is on a mission to take over and it looks like he is well on his way as a solo artist. Justin is Top 10 with yet another Timbaland/ Danja production with "Summer Love" staying heated at the #8 position. Also Mr. F-A-B-O has made a HUGE leap 61 spots from #74 to #13 with his SMASH single "Make Me Better" with the man who writes some of the most addicting hooks, Ne-Yo.

Even though she may have taken a dive, Nelly Furtado is still noticeable on the Hot 100 with "All Good Things (Must Come To An End)" at #97. Urban Radio has been feeling the Prince-esque "Until The End of Time" from Justin helping it go up 2 spots to the #18 spot on the Hot Hip-Hop/ R&B Singles chart. Hopefully with their support Justin can turn that Bubbling Under single into a bonafide Hot 100 Charting! Danja also enjoys some SOLO success with "We Takin Over" jumping up 4 spots for a #31 placing on the Hot 100. Let's see what the rest of his arsenal has instore for us with singles from Paula DeAnda and Katharine McPhee getting ready to heat up the summertime with "Easy" and "Love Story" respectively.



  1. How you all feel about a weekly radio rundown? I'm trying to make it a regular part of The Chronicles.

    This is what I'm talking about Bigmac! Thank you for this.

  2. Sounds good, Boogie. Its nice to keep track of Tim's weight outside this little circle. Also, do you have an official word on Paula DeAnda - Easy? Lately, I've been hearing Danja only but you have it listed under Tim's productions. It's a sick song either way, just curious.

  3. Weekly chart rundown sounds like a good plan.

    The liner notes for "Easy" say "Produced by Danja" & "Additional production by Timbaland". However, Danja's the one w/ the writing credit; there's no writing credit for Tim. And from the sound of it, I would guess the song is all Danja, and maybe Tim came in the room once or twice and gave an opinion or something.

  4. Oh right, so I'm not totally mad then. Thought I was the only one. That "Until The End Of Time" track has Prince all over it. The drumkit sounds especially, go and listen to most of Prince's stuff and you'll hear the exact sounds he originally used, it's not even subtle.

    While I love that Justin song, they really do need to own up to the fact that they are heavily influenced by Prince's style.

    Anyway, good to see Danja getting more action and spotlight.
