"Idol" judge Paula Abdul back on singles chart

"Idol" judge Paula Abdul back on singles chart

NEW YORK (Billboard) - Twenty years ago this week, Paula Abdul scored her second No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 singles chart with "Forever Your Girl." (Her first, "Straight Up," held on for a final round at No. 90).

Fast-forwarding to the present, only one artist on that chart appears this week: the evergreen Abdul, who bows at No. 87 with "I'm Just Here for the Music."

Last year, the "American Idol" judge ended a nearly 13-year chart drought with the No. 80 debut of "Dance Like There's No Tomorrow," which was credited to Abdul and fellow "Idol" judge Randy Jackson. "Music" marks her 15th entry on the Hot 100.

Abdul premiered her new song May 6 on "American Idol," the same night Daughtry unveiled "No Surprise." "Idol" alum Chris Daughtry's band releases "Leave This Town," its sophomore set, July 14. The group's new hit, co-written by Nickelback's Chad Kroeger, blasts onto the Hot 100 at No. 15. That's the band's best bow, topping the No. 18 start of "What About Now" in April 2008.

After the act's "Idol" performance, Daughtry's self-titled debut album surged to No. 50 from No. 177 on the Billboard 200. Now in its 129th chart week, the set scores its highest ranking in eight months.
