Touch: Hot 100 Roundup—8/31/13

Lady Gaga—“Applause” #6 What’s most surprising about “Applause” is how friendly it is. Gaga doesn’t thrive on applause because she’s a megalomaniac fueled by adulation (though that may be partly true), but because she considers it a form of human … Continue reading

B.o.B. featuring Lil Wayne—”Strange Clouds” #7 B.o.B. has been putting so much energy into the pop side of his career that I’d swear this is the first time I’ve heard him rap. That can’t be true, but that’s the way … Continue reading
