Billboard Hot 100, 18/09/09

1. I Gotta Feeling - Black Eyed Peas
2. Boom Boom Pow - Black Eyed Peas

The Black Eyed Peas continue their reign at #1 with "I Gotta Feeling," which remains at #1 for a second week and is also this weeks airplay gainer. Despite Michael Jackson's sudden sales increases, "Feeling" remarkably maintained steady download sales as it remains atop the Hot Digital songs tally; fending out competition from Jackson's biggest seller "Man In the Mirror." After finishing its 12 week run at #1 last week, "Boom Boom Pow" remains bulleted at #2.

4. Knock You Down - Keri Hison Featuring Ne-Yo & Kanye West
5. LoveGame - Lady GaGa

Both Lady GaGa's "LoveGame" and Keri Hilson's "Knock You Down" remain in the same position, still bulleted. This week Ms. GaGa's "LoveGame" claims the top spot on top 40 radio, so I'm guessing should finally see a position somwhere in the top 4.

6. Fire Burning - Sean Kingston
7. Birthday Sex - Jeremih

I still haven't really gotten into Sean Kingston's new single "Fire Burning," maybe I'll just let this one pass and wait until the next release. This week the song rises a notch upwards, landing at #6. With the release of his self-titled debut album this week, Jeremih's "Birthday Sex" also rises up a notch. I am kinda surprised the song didn't claim the top spot, or enter the top 3.

9. You Belong With Me - Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift's new single "You Belong With Me" has really been on fire this week; the songs been around for ages now, but a lot of people have only started giving the song credit now. The songs scored Swift her second top 10, following "Love Story," which peaked at #4, but can "You Belong With Me," go any higher?

10. New Divide - Linkin Park

Not much news here, but I love this song so I thought I'd say something about it. Linkin Park's new single "New Divide" dips a notch to #10, but still stays bulleted.

12. Falling for You - Colbie Caillat

Colbie Caillat makes a strong debut at #12 with her new single, "Falling for You" which gives Caillat her highest debut on the chart ever, scoring up to 118,000 copies in digital sales.

37. 21 Guns - Green Day

Green Day score their 20th top 40 with their latest single "21 Guns."

Bubbling Under:

1. Obessed - Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey's new single "Obsessed" rises 12 spots to the #1 position on the Bubbling Under Hot 100, which measures the top 25 songs beneath the 100 spot on the Hot 100 (technically it's 101th on the Hot 100). It's in a good position to make a pretty strong debut on the Hot 100 -- I wanted to say "a debut at #1" and although she's accomplished this many times before, it's almost impossible to acquire this feat these days. "Obessed" is currently gaining airplay points, but where it's really excelling is with its digital sales -- which is most likely going to be the songs biggest pusher.
