While the "We Are the World" remake debuted at Number Two on the Billboard Hot 100, chart history demonstrates that Ke$ha shouldn't let down her guard just yet: Back in 1985, when the original "We Are the World" was released, it took over a month for the single to climb to the top spot. Once there, it didn't relinquish Number One for nearly four weeks. That "We are the World" entered at Number 21 in its Hot 100 debut, so the 25th anniversary rendition of the song is off to a much better chart start than its predecessor.
In addition to "We Are the World 25 For Haiti," Ke$ha might also face some stiff competition from former Hot 100 incumbents the Black Eyed Peas, whose "Imma Be" at Number Three could make a run for Number One now that its 10-minute-long video is out. Ke$ha may even challenge herself, because "Blah Blah Blah," another single off her debut Animal, jumped 11 spots to Number 11 on the Hot 100.
