1. Empire State of Mind - Jay-Z Feat. Alicia Keys
2. Bad Romance - Lady GaGa
Jay-Z and Alicia Keys enjoy another bulleted stay at #1 with "Empire State of Mind," holding strong with both airplay and sales, however nipping at their heels is Lady GaGa's "Bad Romance" which scoes the singer her fourth top 5 with a 7 spot leap, also this weeks biggest digital gainer--ultimately due to her show-stopping performance at the American Music Awards 09.
5. TiK ToK - Ke$ha
Scoring her first solo top 5 single is Ke$ha with "TiK ToK," rising 5 spots up the chart. This single is so hot--it's sure to be a #1 by the end of the year or early next year.
7. Sexy Bitch - David Guetta & Akon
After conquering the UK, David Guetta brings his dance-pop magic stateside. "When Love Takes Over" with Kelly Rowland became dance hit but failed to set the Hot 100 alight, only managing a disappointing #76, however proving there is love in the states for European-influenced dance-pop, "Sexy Bitch" (which along with "When Love Takes Over" topped the UK singles chart earlier this year) becomes Guetta's first top 10 hit and Akon's seventh.
12. Meet Me Halfway - Black Eyed Peas
16. Already Gone - Kelly Clarkson
More effects of the American Music Awards. After stalling at the bottom half of the top 20 for the last couple weeks--the Black Eyed Peas finally recuperate rising 3 spots to #12. They're currently at #10 on Mediabase. After staling at #20, #19 and #21 for the last few weeks Kelly Clarkson finally picks up greatly, rising 4 spots to #16.
29. Baby By Me - 50 Cent
I thought this was mildly interesting, 50 Cent's latest single "Baby By Me" falls down to #29 this week still remaining bulleted.
31. Happy - Leona Lewis
Is Leona Lewis' "Happy" finally going to be a hit? It sure looks that way, this week it rises 28 spots up the chart to #31. On the flip side--It seems Lewis is suffering the sophomore slump with her second album, Echo. This week it debuts at a dismal #13 with soft sales of 67k. Ouch!
