Chicago’s Top 20 Songs

Apparently, in these times of uncertainty, Chicagoans prefer that their music chart stays consistent. How else to explain the fact that there’s only one new entry in the top 20 this week, and it comes from a singer who’s no stranger to the list (you may call her Ms. Fierce).

But look at it this way: As long things stay the same, Kanye remains on top of the world, which means he probably will be too busy gloating to complain about the fact that the Academy Awards failed to recognize his greatness, AGAIN. Hugh Jackman thanks you, Chicago.

Here are this week’s top 20 songs based on Chicago-area radio airplay…
