We have a couple new additions to the iTunes Music Store Top 10s this week on both the singles and albums front. I'd like to tell you this is a good thing but it's still a matter of come meet the new boss, same as the old boss. In other words, it's still crap but from different names.
Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" is still the #1 song in the land and is setting 2013 records for staying power for whatever that's worth. Jay Z (note: no hyphen) is still #1 with his Magna Carta Holy Grail album. The new additions this week on the albums front come from John Mayer and Avenged Sevenfold. I'd say it's nice to see rock enter the Top 10 along with all the beat-driven, computerized pop but I just told you these albums come from John Mayer and Avenged Sevenfold; there's nothing nice about that.
On the singles chart, we have a song from Jay Z's album, the title track featuring Justin Timberlake, in the Top 10 along with "Safe And Sound" from Capital Cities. Those are your big changes this week and they're hardly improvements but they're yours if you want them.
