Ke$ha's 'Tik Tok' is still more popular than 'We Are The World'



Tbd-kesha022210 There was some debate over whether music folks should have remade We Are The World, but the proof is in the Billboard Hot 100: The revamped single came in at No. 2 in its first week, behind Ke$sha's Tik Tok. 'Cause she's blowin' speakers up, y'all.

The new Artists for Haiti single is still doing much better than its original version, which debuted at 21 in March 1985, World Entertainment News Network reports. That's got to be good news for Lionel Richie and Quincy Jones. But it can't stop the powerhouse that is the auto-tuned single that's topped the Billboard chart for nine weeks now.

We Are The World 25: For Haiti was released on Feb. 12, when a video for it premiered during opening ceremonies for the Vancouver Games. The digital download has sold at least 267,000 copies since then. But Ke$ha's single is still the one we hear every 12 minutes on the radio, ain't it?
