2012 is shaping up to be the year that pop music re-takes the top of the charts. Bieber's protege Carly Rae Jepsen's debut single "Call Me Maybe" hit #1 on the UK charts and also became the fastest selling single of 2012 so far. That's at the same time that British boy band The Wanted hit #1 on the US Pop charts. And next week Bieber himself will most likely hit the Top 10 on the Pop Charts for the first time in his career as "Boyfriend" is racing up the charts even as we speak.
Three good songs playing tonight in New Music Monday, including the new Neon Trees song called "Everybody Talks" that I've been diggin for a couple months now. Also a fun new song from British singer Cher Lloyd that a lot of people are comparing to Pink. And last but not least David Guetta's new song with featured vocalist Sia who you probably know as the singer with Flo Rida on his latest song "Wild Ones".
