As I noted last month, timing is everything. With a full month advantage this time around, the One Direction ticket sales tallied up quickly and nobody else even had a chance.
It is the first time since last September that 1D has held the #1 spot. Although that may seem strange at first, remember that this is the band that started selling tickets for 2013 before they even started touring in 2012. One Direction fans do not wait, and 2012 was one of those odd years where ticket sales were so early that it was a long time before they picked back up again. The greatest chunk of tickets usually sells on the onsale date, anyway, and this past December was no different.
You've probably heard the version of Lady Gaga's latest single, "Do What U Want," featuring R. Kelly. She performed it on a handful of award shows and it's also played pretty regularly on most top 40 radio stations.
However, Gaga recently stopped by "The Voice," where Christina Aguilera stepped in for an absent R. Kelly to complete the duet. Gaga released an official, slightly remixed version featuring Aguilera, which can be heard at right.
Which version do you prefer?
