Now That's What I Call Music! 43

"After a nine-week run at No. 1, Carly Rae Jepsen’s song 'Call Me Maybe' has finally been bumped from the top spot, by Flo Rida’s 'Whistle.' But Ms. Jepsen’s song is now part of a different No. 1. It is the first track on the latest installment — Vol. 43 — of 'Now That’s What I Call Music!' — the long-running pop compilation series, which opens atop Billboard’s album chart this week. 'Now 43' sold 111,000 copies in its first week, easily reaching No. 1, according to Nielsen SoundScan. (Aside from 'Call Me Maybe,' the album includes Maroon 5’s 'Payphone,' Katy Perry’s 'Part of Me' and Ellie Goulding’s 'Lights' — but not 'Whistle.')" (Ben Sisario, "'Now 43' Compilation Tops Album Chart," New York Times, 8/15/12)
