Billboard Hot 100, April 23, 2011

1. E.T. - Katy Perry feat. Kanye West
2. S&M - Rihanna

Katy Perry extends her reign at #1 to second week, also this weeks airplay gainer, holding off fellow pop scarlet Rihanna's "S&M" which ascends to #1 over on the pop songs tally this week--logging in her 8th chart-topper, pushing her past P!nk and Lady Gaga for the most #1's on that chart. It's "S&M" third week at #2, however this week could give Rihanna a pretty good chance to score the third straight #1 from Loud, thanks to the newly-released remix of the song featuring Britney Spears, which currently sits at #1 on iTunes. I'm sure the sales for both the normal and the remix will be combined, hopefully giving Rihanna a good shot at #1 next week.

8. Till the World Ends - Britney Spears

Speaking of Britney Spears, the singer returns to the top 10 following its 3 week absence, climbing 5 spots up to #8 scoring a new peak, thanks to its video release last week. It peaked at #9 6 weeks ago.

10. Rolling in the Deep - Adele

Adele stays bulleted at #10 this week and is beginning to rise on top 40 radio and hopefully could see a new peak next week. She also reclaims #1 on the Billboard 200 this week.

13. Honey Bee - Blake Shelton

American country singer Blake Shelton makes a rather impressive debut at #13 with his new single "Honey Bee." Impressive mostly because not only is it his highest single debut ever, but also his highest peaking. Shelton's last biggest hit on the Hot 100 was back in 2004 with "Some Beach" which peaked at #28.

17. Give Me Everything - Pitbull feat. Ne-Yo, AfroJack & Nayer

This weeks digital gainer is "Give Me Everything" by cuban rapper Pitbull, this single soars 43 spots up to #17 scoring the rapper's 4th top 20 single.

18. Firework - Katy Perry

Isn't it weird not seeing this in the top 10?

20. The Lazy Song - Bruno Mars

Bruno Mars' "The Lazy Song" rises 7 spots up to #20, scoring his third top 30 single.

40. Price Tag - Jessie J feat. B.o.B.

Following in Adele and Tinie Tempah's footsteps, British singer Jessie J climbs 9 spots up to #40 scoring her first ever US top 40 single. Congratulations!
