Billboard Hot 100, June 18, 2011

1. Rolling In the Deep - Adele

Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" logs in its fifth week at #1, currently the second longest frame at #1 behind Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" which occupied the pinnacle for 6 weeks earlier this year. It's more than likely to spend a few more weeks at the top as it rises to an airplay high of 150 million this week and also remains atop of the iTunes top 100. It's quite strange how "Deep" managed to achieve more success in the US than in her hometown UK, where it peaked at #2.

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

Pitbull's "Give Me Everything" remains bulleted at #2 this week and is this weeks airplay gainer. I'm not quite sure why everyone has fallen in love with this song. It's not that great, or is it just me? "Grab someone sexy, tell 'em hey" is a fun lyric to sing, to give unattractive people a nice boost, though. Try it!

4. The Lazy Song - Bruno Mars

Bruno Mars' "The Lazy Song" climbs 2 spots up to #4, scoring his fifth top 5 single. I don't think this will be a hit in the same magnitude as Mars' previous 2 singles, mainly because of Adele, however a top 3 is almost certain.

7. The Edge of Glory - Lady Gaga

While "Judas" became Lady Gaga's first chart casualty, it seems its follow up single "The Edge of Glory" is more than making up for it. It climbs a notch up to #7 this week.

11. Super Bass - Nicki Minaj
12. How to Love

Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass" inches closer and closer to scoring the rapper's first solo top 10 single. Could next week be the week? It climbs 3 spots up to #11 this week. Hot on its heels is label mate and boss Lil Wayne, who's new single "How to Love" rises a staggering 57 spots up to #12 scoring his 10th top 20 single, making it this week's digital gainer.

16. Good Life - OneRepublic

American pop/rock band OneRepublic's "Good Life" rises 7 spots up to #16, scoring their third top 20 and their highest charting single from their second album Waking Up, out peaking lead single "All the Right Moves" which stalled at #18.

29. Every Teardrop is a Waterfall - Coldplay

British alternative rock band Coldplay debut at #29 with their new single "Every Teardrop is a Waterfall." It's the band's sixth top 40 single, funnily enough mirroring the peak position of their first top 40 single "Clocks" which also peaked at #29 in 2003.
