This Just In: Americans Enjoy Listening To Lil Wayne While Possibly Getting Inebriated

We love charts here at Idolator, but sometimes they can be so elitist. Who cares what critics think, or what the program directors of America feel like shoving down peoples’ throats? We want to know: What are the people demanding to hear? What songs inspire people to vote with their wallets, making them insert a dollar into a machine with one hand while holding a longneck in the other?

Turns out the answer is: Anything by Lil Wayne. Weezy took five of the ten spots on June’s edition of the “Ecast BarPulse” chart, which reflects purchases on jukeboxes operated by the Internet-juke company Ecast. (These are different than the ones operated by the Foreigner fans at TouchTunes. The Sugarland track is proving to be a real juggernaut, holding strong on the iTunes download charts as well. However, even Weezy can’t knock off Katy Perry, which proves that my decision to never go anywhere is proving to be a good one.

The chart for June:

1. “I Kissed A Girl,” Katy Perry 2. “A Milli,” Lil Wayne 3. “Lollipop,” Lil Wayne 4 “Viva La Vida,” Coldplay 5. “Bust It Baby Part 2 (ft. Ne-Yo),” Plies 6. “All I Want To Do,” Sugarland 7. “Mr. Carter,” Lil Wayne 8. “Got Money,” Lil Wayne 9. “Mercy,” Duffy 10. “Mrs. Officer,” Lil Wayne
