Billboard Hot 100, 28th May, 2011

1. Rolling in the Deep - Adele

No change at the top as Adele clocks in a second week at #1 with "Rolling in the Deep". Last week it became the first single from a female British singer since Leona Lewis' "Bleeding Love" to score a US #1. This week the single becomes the first solo female British single since Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the Heart" to hold the top spot for a second consecutive week. Still going strong digitally,"Deep" also continues to race up the airplay charts--its this weeks airplay gainer this week.

3. The Edge of Glory - Lady Gaga

The latest from Lady Gaga's forthcoming second album Born This Way, "The Edge of Glory" makes a quite an impressive debut at #3--her highest debut since lead single "Born This Way" debuted at #1 earlier this year and makes up for the relative under performance of second single "Judas" which arrived at #10 (and tumbles 8 spots down to #27 this week). It's even doing better on radio, becoming the fastest rising single on top 40 right now. It's her 9th top 10. The single arrives a week before the release of Born This Way which is predicted to sell between 450k and 750k, probably a million isn't out of the question.

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

Cuban rapper Pitbull rises 4 spots up to #4, scoring the rappers 2nd top 5.

20. Party Rock Anthem - LMFAO feat. Lauren Bennett & GoonRock

This has spent 4 weeks atop the UK singles chart, however it's taken awhile to catch on in the states. LMFAO's "Party Rock Anthem" climbs 4 spots up to #20 scoring the duo's first top 20.
