Billboard Hot 100, 25/07/09

1. I Gotta Feeling - Black Eyed Peas

The Black Eyed Peas hang on to a third week at #1 with "I Gotta Feeling" earning the airplay gainer award. In additional to their chart dominance, "Boom Boom Pow" still remains in the top 10 for a thirteenth week, this week it slips 2 - 3.

2. Best I Ever Had - Drake

R&B newcomer, Drake continues to rise with his debut single "Best I Ever Had" rising up to #2 this week, where it will most likely peak. "Feeling" doesn't seem to be going anywhere, anytime soon.

4. Knock You Down - Keri Hilson Featuring Ne-Yo & Kanye West

It's sad Keri Hilson's "Knock You Down" didn't make to #1, it would've been quite the feat for her. This week "Knock" remains at #4 for a fourth week, still bulleted.

5. Fire Burning - Sean Kingston

Sean Kingston earns his second top 5 single with "Fire Burning." A couple months ago I said this single wouldn't be as big of a hit as Kingston's first "Beautiful Girls" -- as it continues to rise, perhaps I was wrong.

10. He Could Be the One - Hannah Montana
11. Obsessed - Mariah Carey

The real action on the Hot 100 this week is near the bottom of the top 10. This week saw the digital releases of Hannah Montana's "He Could Be the One" taken from the new Hannah Montana TV soundtrack album and Mariah Carey's "Obsessed" from her forthcoming twelfth studio album. "He Could Be the One" scores Montana her first top 10, as for the song I couldn't care less for it. On a more lighter note, "Obsessed" scores a milestone for Carey, the single makes her the eighth woman in Hot 100 history to score 40 or more appearances on the chart. The single is also Carey's highest debut since "My All" debut at #2 in 1998.

12. Waking Up in Vegas - Katy Perry

After ten weeks on the chart and into its eleventh, Katy Perry's "Waking Up in Vegas" is proving a real trooper. This week is rises 1 notch back to #12, it's highest peak was at #10.

22. Love Drunk - Boys Like Girls

Rock band, Boys Like Girl score their highest charting single ever with "Love Drunk," which I'm currently really enjoying listening to. This week the single rises 46 -22, earning this week sales gainer award, due to its digital release last week. Prior to this they're highest charting single was "The Great Escape" which peaked at #23 in 2007.
