Ke$ha Ruins Lionel Richie's Dream in Topping U.S. Chart With 'We Are the World'


Ke$ha has spoiled Lionel Richie and Quincy Jones' dreams in debuting their charity hit at number one of the Billboard Hot 100 as 'Tik Tok' will land at number one in its ninth week.

Ke$ha has wrecked Lionel Richie and Quincy Jones' dreams of debuting their revamped all-star "We Are the World 25: for Haiti" charity hit at the top of the U.S. pop charts. The party-loving pop star will start a ninth week at number one when the Billboard Hot 100 is officially released on Thursday, February 18, according to early estimates.

And that means the new Artists For Haiti single will debut at two on the new countdown. The track was released as a digital download on Friday evening, February 12 after the new video accompanying the track debuted during the telecast of the opening night of the Winter Olympics.

The new "We Are the World" had sold over 267,000 downloads when WENN went to press. The original tune, which was written by Richie and Michael Jackson and recorded by supergroup USA for Africa, debuted at 21 on the Hot 100 in March 1985. The track rose to number one three weeks later and stayed there for four.
