Billboard Hot 100, March 12, 2010

1. Born this Way - Lady Gaga

It's a third week at the top for Lady Gaga's "Born this Way," tying "Just Dance" for the singer's longest run at #1 thus far. It's also the first song to debut at #1 and stay there for 3 weeks since Mariah Carey's "Honey" September, 1997. "Born," crosses the million digital sales mark this week, becoming the 4th best selling single of year so far, according to Billboard.

4. Fuckin' Perfect - P!nk
5. S&M - Rihanna

P!nk rebounds 2 spots back up to #4 with "Fuckin' Perfect," currently still gaining heavily on top 40 radio. Barbadian singer Rihanna's "S&M" also climbs up 2 spots, up to #5, scoring the singer her 10th top 5 hit.

8. E.T. - Katy Perry feat. Kanye West

Where did this come from? I wasn't aware Katy Perry had a new single out, but she does and "E.T." climbs a staggering 20 spots up to #8, the 4th top 10 from Teenage Dream and her 7th overall. Another #1? Probably. It's this week's digital gainer.

9. On the Floor - Jennifer Lopez feat. Pitbull

Now a "surprise" I did expect this week, was the chart-comeback from American pop singer Jennifer Lopez, who's latest single "On the Floor" featuring Cuban rapper Pitbulls debuts in the top 10 at #9. This is Lopez's first solo top 10 since "All I Have" featuring rapper LL Cool J--that was 8 years ago, peaking at #1 in 2003. The last time she appeared in the top 10 was as a guest on LL Cool J's "Control Myself," which peaked at #4 in 2006. "Floor" sold a respectable 171k this week. American Idol can do wonders for ones career.

11. Blow - Kesha

Landing just outside the top 10 is the latest single from pop singer Kesha, "Blow" charges up 21 spots up to #11 this week, scoring her 6th top 20... which is basically all of her singles thus far.

15. Moment 4 Life - Nicki Minaj feat. Drake

Can rapper Nicki Minaj out-peak her high-peaking single, "Your Love," with "Moment 4 Life," featuring Drake, which climbs 3 spots up to #15 just 1 notch away from the #14 peak of "Love."

31. All of the Lights - Kanye West & co.

Rapper Kanye West and the ocean of other artists featured on the single, "All of the Lights," surges into the top 40, climbing 23 spots up to #31, scoring his 14th top 40 single.
