At the end of each week, #Top40Tweets lists a cross-section of artists on the current pop charts and puts their tweets on display (along with their current chart number) for your enjoyment/scrutiny. This week, we look at artists on the Billboard Music Charts.
(Uncharted): Jay-Z – Magna Carta Holy Grail
— Mr. Carter (@S_C_) June 17, 2013
Better question: if a million records get sold to a billion dollar corporation, will anyone even listen to them? Or will this record be like the “Buddy Holly” video on the Windows 95 CD?
FUN FACT: Officially, Billboard will not count Jay-Z’s one million album deal with Samsung towards his official chart position, which is (probably) setting up Hov for his worst (official) first week album sales of all time.
#27 (Hot 200): Miley Cyrus – We Can’t Stop
@britneyspears we could twerk it out in exchange for u teaching me da moves 2 "slave for you" (I've been practicing for the past 10 years)
— Miley Ray Cyrus (@MileyCyrus) June 21, 2013
Aw, cute! A social media intern at Jive Records is tweeting at Miley Cyrus.
FUN FACT: Is Miley’s new image appropriating ratchet culture, and accessorizing black people? Jezebel thinks so.
(Uncharted): Kanye West – Handle My Liquor feat. Justin Vernon & Chief Keef
Feds On my Ass Like Alarms On a House Dey Lock A nigga Up den Im bondin Right Out
— AlmightySo (@ChiefKeef) June 19, 2013
FUN FACT: Chief Keef’s appearance on Yeezus is, surprisingly, an album highlight.
Speaking of, TYIF, right?
(Uncharted): Waka Flocka Flame – Round Of Applause feat. Drake
@WakaFlockaBSM I dreamt about you last night ;)
— Amanda Bynes (@AmandaBynes) June 20, 2013
Waka Flocka Flame is reportedly producing Amanda Bynes’ debut rap album. He says she’s gonna “kill the game.” Also, his career.
FUN FACT: Well, I guess we have to go. Right?
Waka Flocka going to Toronto June 29 and 30 w/ @TheRealSkitzz and the whole squadd can't miss that !!

#35 (Hot 100): Drake – Started From The Bottom
this gol is for my bro @Drake !!! STARTED FROM THE BOTTOM NOW WE HERE!!
— Mario balotelli (@FinallyMario) June 16, 2013
He started from the bottom, now Italian soccer players are dedicating game winning goals to him. Bonkers.
FUN FACT: So, Drake was denied entry to the Miami Heat locker room last night. Watch the utter disbelief wash over his face.
It’s all good, though. That security guard got fired, and Drake was poppin’ bottles and eating pizza with Lebron and the gang in no time flat.
