Billboard Hot 100, March 19, 2011

1. Born this Way - Lady Gaga

It's a 4th week at #1 for Lady Gaga's "Born this Way," becoming the first song to debut at #1 and remain there for 4 weeks since American rock band Aerosmith's "I Don't Wanna Miss a Thing," which also spent 4 weeks at #1 in 1998. Only 4 other #1-debuting songs have pushed passed the 4 week mark: Mariah Carey's "Fantasy" (8 weeks) and "One Sweet Day" with Boyz II Men (16 weeks), P Diddy and Faith Evans' "I'll Be Missing You" (11 weeks) and Elton John's "Candle in the Wind 1997"/"Something About the Way You Look Tonight" (14 weeks). Billboard note that "Born" is the only song to achieve this feat in the digital era.

2. Fuck You! (Forget You!) - Cee Lo Green
3. S&M - Rihanna

Cee Lo Green's "Fuck You!" is this weeks airplay gainer, remaining bulleted at #2. Barbadian singer Rihanna climbs 2 spots up to #3 with "S&M," scoring itself a new peak as well as scoring her 10th top 3 single.

5. On the Floor - Jennifer Lopez (feat. Pitbull)

Thing keep getting better for this years comeback kid, Jennifer Lopez. "One the Floor," which debuted at #9 last week, climbs 4 spots up to #5 this week, landing the singer her first solo top 5 since 2003's "All I Have" with LL Cool J. Admittedly it's airplay isn't that great yet, however "Floor" has been #1 on iTunes for almost a week now (holding off Lady Gaga and Britney Spears in the process), could this be her first #1 in God know how long? It's also this weeks digital gainer, selling 221k in downloads.

7. Blow - Kesha

Auto-tuned pop scarlet Kesha climbs 4 spots up to #7, scoring her 6th top 10 single (out of 6 singles) with "Blow."

13. Moment 4 Life - Nicki Minaj feat. Drake

Rapper Nicki Minaj edges closer to the top 10 with "Moment 4 Life" featuring Drake. It out-peaked her highest single thus far "Your Love," this week, which peaked at #14 last year. I hope this will be a top 10 for the rapper--It's long overdue.

20. Till the World Ends - Britney Spears

Following its three days of release, pop singer Britney Spears debuts at #20 with "Till the World Ends" the second single lifted from her forthcoming 7th LP Femme Fatale, selling 117k. Billboard note that this is Spears' 5th highest debut on the chart, but I can only count 4, with the others being "Circus," "3" and "Hold it Against Me" which all debuted in the top 3. What's the other one?

38. Just Can't Get Enough - Black Eyed Peas

The Black Eyed Peas score their 14th top 40 single with "Just Can't Get Enough" climbing 28 spots up to #38 this week.

You'll be very happy to know I quite like the new Britney, even if it was a Ke$ha co-write.
