Billboard reports that Ke$ha takes her first solo chart single “TiK ToK” to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 (from 2nd place to 1st), set to be released on Billboard December 24th. Ke$ha is the first female vocalist to rise to No. 1 with her debut single since Lady Gaga stormed the list with her single “Just Dance” in January 2009.
“TiK ToK” is actually the second Hot 100 No. 1 to feature vocals by the 22-year-old. She had a non-credited appearance on Flo Rida’s six-week chart-topper “Right Round” earlier this year. “TiK ToK” is the first single from Ke$ha’s debut album, “Animal,” which is set for release in January 5th.
Ke$ha’s move to the top bumps “Empire State of Mind” by Jay-Z and Alicia Keys from the 1st place (1-2) after a five-week run. [via Billboard]
