Charice’s Pyramid gets upperhand over Lady Gaga, Beyoncé duet in US chart

Charice’s Pyramid gets upperhand over Lady Gaga, Beyoncé duet in US chart
Just five weeks after its debut in the US Billboard Dance/Club Play Song chart, international Filipino singer Charice’s song “Pyramid” has had even the likes of Lady Gaga and Beyonce’s song “Telephone” eating dust.
For the week ending April 3, “Pyramid” is up from number 26 to 22 vis-avis “Telephone” which plunges to number 25 from number 18 after peaking at number one in the chart.
Charice is one of few Filipino artists who has achieved the feat of entering the Billboard Dance chart. In the ’90s, Jocelyn Enriquez, whose parents hail from Pangasinan, stormed both the dance and pop charts in the US with the songs “A Little Bit of Ecstasy” and “Do You Miss Me?”
Although it has not yet entered the Billboard Hot 100 (considered as the barometer of hit songs in America), Charice’s performance in “Pyramid” has prompted a New York Post music columnist to call her a “pop princess,” a title previous held by Britney Spears.
In that column item, Charice was described as “a new little chick” whose “mountain-and-valley vocals are the only reason you will need to fall in love with her sound.”
The music video for “Pyramid” debuted on music channels last March 19. Her album will hit the shelves on May 11, 2010.
In other news, Charice was recently shown a picture of children she has helped in Rwanda through Operation Smile, a non-government organization that provides free surgeries to children born with cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities.
The picture has Rwandan children holding up a streamer that read, “Thank you Oprah+Charice” in appreciation for the funds (at least $5,000) that Charice was able to raise for them.
Charice is one of the biggest Internet sensations of our time. Her exposure on YouTube has led to her dicovery by Ellen DeGeneres and Oprah Winfrey; the second, even calling her “the most talented girl in the world.”

      just want you to know that Charice is a fan of Lady Gaga, even sent a tweet out once saying she’s one of Gaga’s “Little Monsters” lol And she has performed her hit “Just Dance” on a couple of occasions in her own appearances. The article is a reprint, not hating, simply reporting the Billboard rankings altho “eating dust” is a bit dramatic. It is amazing what Lady Gaga has accomplished in such a short time in the music scene. Janet Jackson is a fan as well and was quoted in a recent article saying that Lady Gaga also happens to be a nice person and a very hard worker. She has worked for her success, no doubt. She’s a good songwriter (if you look beyond the R-rated videos which seems to throw people off) and I predict, too, that she’ll be around a long time.

    It’s worth all the time the laptop has been playing the Pyramid video on Yahoo Music.=) If you want to help some more by viewing the video automatically, please read comments on CM article “Rate Pyramid Music Video Now on Yahoo! Music.”

    I too, am very happy to see this type of news where the Filipino press somehow finally find the more profound and important qualities of Charice worth writing about. They are finally showing some notable qualities of their own. Hopefully other media people follow suit and bring some dignity and respectability to Philippine media.

    Go Charice! All the way to the very top.
