Billboard changed the rules and this reenters the chart : Whitney Houston returns to the Billboard Hot 100 top 10 this week as her signature hit from 1992 -- it reigned for 14 weeks -- "I Will Always Love You" re-enters at No. 7, fueled by an enormous resurgence in digital sales (195,000, up 6723%, according to Nielsen SoundScan) and radio airplay (18 million audience impressions, up 915%, according to Nielsen BDS).
It could possibly reach #1 next week and may block Katy from the top.
WHITNEY HELPED KELLY HOLD OFF KATY: Katy Perry's "Part of Me" just misses this week's Hot 100, debuting atop the chart's Bubbling Under survey. With "Part," the first single from Perry's "Teenage Dream" reissue, "The Complete Confection," projected to sell north of 400,000 downloads by the end of the current tracking period, the song is in line up for a possible No. 1 bow on next week's Hot 100.
Had three of Houston's songs not re-entered this week's chart, as astute billboard.com reader kwall91 commented, "Part" would've debuted at No. 98 based on early sales and its first two days airplay (15 million audience impressions on 160 stations, according to Nielsen BDS). Or, had only one or two Houston titles re-entered, "Part" would've started at No. 99 or 100.
Why is that significant?
Had the song begun at either Nos. 98, 99 or 100 - and if it vaults to No. 1 next week - it would've passed Kelly Clarkson's "My Life Would Suck Without You" for the largest leap to the Hot 100 pinnacle. "Suck" soared 97-1 the week of Feb. 7, 2009.
Instead, Perry may have to "settle" for a No. 1 bow. If "Part" does debut at No. 1, it will mark only the 20th title launch atop the Hot 100 and the first since Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" bowed at No. 1 - as the chart's 1,000th leader all-time - the week of Feb. 26, 2011.
