Billboard Hot 100, September 25, 2010

1. Teenage Dream - Katy Perry

Katy Perry holds on to #1 for a second week with "Teenage Dream," although it also loses its bullet, however "Dream" has moved up to #3 on Top 40 Radio with 12,000 spins this week.

3. Just the Way You Are - Bruno Mars

Bruno Mars' "Just the Way You Are" is airplay gainer of the week, rising up a notch up to #3. Over on Top 40 Radio its garnered just under 10,000 spins this week and on iTunes it's been replaced at #1 by Rihanna's new single "Only Girl (In the World)." This week it sold a pretty hefty 209,000 in downloads--just edging out Katy Perry's 197,000 with "Dream."

5. I Like It - Enrique Iglasias
6. DJ Got Us Fallin' in Love - Usher

Both Enrique Iglasias's "I Like It" and Usher's "DJ Got Us Fallin' Love" stay bulleted in the same position--both singles are still in the top 10 on iTunes and Top 40 Radio.

9. Club Can't Handle Me - Flo Rida

11 weeks in and rapper Flo Rida finally scores a top 10 hit with "Club Can't Handle Me" featuring French producer David Guetta, rising 4 spots up to #9. This is the longest Flo has taken for a lead single to enter the top 10, 2007's "Low" debuted at #91 and reached #1 8 weeks later. 2009's "Low" debuted at #74 and reached #1 only 3 weeks later. But at least "Club" is a hit, if it had peaked at #18 all those weeks ago--what would be left of his career? Album sales? I think not.

16. Like a G6 - Far*East Entertainment featuring Cataracs & Dev

Music group Far*East Entertainment score their first top 10 with "Like a G6." The only other notable comment I can make out this is that this LA-based four-piece are signed to Cherrytree Records, the same label as Lady Gaga.

24. Animal - Neon Trees

I got this as a free iTunes download weeks ago--I absolutely love it. This week Californian rock band Neon Trees' "Animal" rises 6 spots up to #24. It's the lead single from their debut album Habits, which went in on the Billboard 200 at #113 back in March, I expect a pretty big rise soon.

32. King of Anything - Sara Bareilles

American singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles is back in the top 40 this week, lead single from her third album Kaleidoscope Heart, which gives Bareilles her first #1 album this week on the Billboard 200,"King of Anything" rises 20 places up to #32--her first top 40 hit since breakthrough single "Love Song" peaked at #4 in 2007.

Thanks for reminding me that I had Neon Trees for free. I'd totally forgotten about that. Kind of boring week though on the Hot 100.
