MTV Russia Top 5: November 2011

Published: November 30, 2011

MTV Russia is just like MTV everywhere else—except that it plays some Russian stuff, too. They used to have a program called “Русская 10-тка” (“Russian 10”) devoted to the best Russian-language pop currently on the market, but that program has since morphed into another program called “Rus_Chart.” Once a month, SRAS provides a snapshot of what’s at the top five of that chart, with YouTube videos and links to our Russian music site.


1. “Мальчик” (“Boy”)—Павел Воля, Елка


2. “Мама Люба” (“Mama Lyuba”)—Serebro



3. “Осколки” (“Splinters”)—Полина Гагарина   



4.  “Ты похудела” (“You Lost Weight”)—Лолита, Quest Pistols


5.  “На краю земли” (“On the Edge of the Earth”)—Тимати
