Music News: Music in July

     I have been slacking on the music news, I know.  I have just been trying to post plenty of videos just so I can get my feet wet. I am still new to this blogging thing. Its been hard trying to find videos everyday and look up the latest music news, then write something about them.  I decided to just do a recap of some music news stories that took place in July. 
     On the billboard hot 100 chart, most of the songs in the top 5 have not budged, staying in the same position for the last 2 weeks.  Carly Rae Jepsen with Call Me Maybe at # 1, Maroon 5 featuring Wiz Khalifa at # 2 with Payphone, Katy Perry at # 3 with Wide Awake.  But Ellie Goulding and Gotye with Kimbra have flip-flopped.  Gotye's Somebody I Used to Know drops from 4-5 and Ellie Goulding's Lights rises 5-4.  On the top r&b/hip-hop songs chart, Mercy by Kanye West, Big Sean, Pusha T, and 2 Chainz has been on top for the last 2 weeks.  Usher's Lemme See with Rick Ross rises 3-2, 2 Chainz featuring Drake No Lie slips 2-3, Usher's Climax stays at # 2 for the last 2 weeks, and Wale, Rick Ross, Meek Mill and T-Pain kick J. Cole and Missy Elliot from the # 5 spot.  So if you didn't quite follow that, here's how the charts looked this week and last week:
