Billboard Hot 100, 6th February 2010

1. TiK ToK - Ke$ha
2. Today Was a Fairy Tale - Taylor Swift

Ke$ha holds at number-one for a sixth week with "TiK ToK," holding off this weeks biggest debut from Taylor Swift. "Today Was a Fairy Tale" breaks the record for largest first-week digital sales for a female artist, selling 325k. The record was previously held by Britney Spears' "Womanizer" which shifted 286k. It's also the biggest opening since the Black Eyed Peas' "Boom Boom Pow" last year, which did 470k.

3. Bad Romance - Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga dips down to number-two this week, losing its bullet. Will this ever reach the top spot?

4. BedRock - Young Money featuring Lloyd

Lil' Wayne's hip-hop group Young Money stay bulleted at number-four as airplay gainer of the week with "BedRock."

5. Baby - Justin Bieber featuing Ludacris

Lead single from his forthcoming second part of his debut album, My World, "Baby" debuts at #5, I believe his highest opening on the chart. The single moved 200k this week. Like "One Less Lonely Girl," I predict this week probably die out quickily and hover around the top twenty for some time.

9. Hard - Rihanna feat. Young Jeezy

Rihanna falls one spot to number-nine with "Hard" however still remains bulleted.

11. Imma Be - Black Eyed Peas

The Black Eyed Peas inch closer to their seventh top ten with "Imma Be." This week it rises four spots up from fifteen.

14. Carry Out - Timbaland featuring Justin Timberlake

Timbaland scores his fourth top twenty hit as a solo-artist with "Carry Out," whereas Justin scores his ninth (excluding featured singles).

16. Stranded (Haiti Mon Amour) - Jay-Z, Rihanna, Bono and The Edge
48. Hallelujah - Justin Timberlake, Matt Morris and Charlie Sexton (what a cool last name)
81. Redemption Song - Rihanna

First up of the Haiti debuts is Jay-Z, Rihanna, Bono and The Edge's "Stranded," the most popular track from the Hope for Haiti album. The track sold 131k this week scoring a pretty solid debut at number-sixteen. Justin Timberlake, Matt Morris and Sexton's cover of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" just cracks the top fifty, debuting at forty-eight. And lastly Rihanna's cover of Bob Marley's "Redemption Song" debuts at eighty-one, selling 81k. In more good news for the Hope for Haiti project, the album debuts at #1 with 171k haul.

20. Telephone - Lady Gaga featuring Beyonce

Lady Gaga and Beyonce's "Telephone" stays bulleted at number-twenty for a second week. This is already a bigger hit than "Video Phone" was so I guess it's already a success.

28. In My Head - Jason DeRulo

It may not be a big hit as "Watcha Say" but Jason DeRulo's second single "In My Head" should be enough so solidfy his status as the new Chris Brown or at least give me a decent pop career. Remember boys and girls: Hitting women is wrong!

37. Whataya Want from Me - Adam Lambert

Adam Lambert scores his first top forty with "Whataya Want from Me," second single from his debut album For Your Entertainment.

Ah, Bad Romance has #1 all written over it but it got pussy sidetrack by Ke"Dolla-sign"ha. Damn!
OK. I think I lost touch with the real world of Pop for once, Taylor have a new song? Better be as catchy as You Belong With Me or else.. *youtubing it now*

Yay for Lambert, I really dig that track but I think heavy rotation will kill my interest fast with that song.

Oh, I think Gaga should throw an old school dialer telephone at Ke"Dolla-sign"ha to dethrone her from that top spot. Time's up, gurl.

i laughed so hard at "what a cool last name"!! Glad to see Matt Morris getting some chart love :) Yay! And although i was a bit iffy about Taylor Swift's song at first I'm now liking it.

Yay Lambert!

Gaga's Bad Romance is over now in the chart race for number one, but it did phenomenally well really didn't it?

Loy, Ouch! lol Someone doesn't have a soft-spot for Kesha. I think Telephone has the potential to be another #1 for her, if it can reach the top 20 on airplay and soft sales imagine what could happen with some actual promotion.

Paul, Haha! :) It really is llol. I guess it is over but i do agree it did to really well.
