Billboard Hot 100, June 25, 2011

1. Rolling In the Deep - Adele

It's a sixth week at the top for British soul singer Adele's "Rolling In the Deep." I did begin to question whether this would ever be budged from the top, until some forthcoming lead single from a major artist comes along later on this year, stupidly overlooking Katy Perry's new single "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" which has just toppled "Deep" on iTunes after its lengthy 3 plus week reign at #1. It's also lost its bullet this week (hopefully not a typo)--showing signs of slowing down. Unfortunately, Perry's "Friday"s airplay isn't quite strong enough to compete with "Deep" for #1, but I'm sure it'll rack up those audience impressions soon enough.

3. Party Rock Anthem - LMFAO Featuring Lauren Bennet & GoonRock

If Katy Perry can't do it, maybe LMFAO can with "Party Rock Anthem,"? which climbs 3 spots up to #3 this week and is also this weeks airplay gainer.

9. Dirt Road Anthem - Jason Aldean
10. Super Bass - Nicki Minaj

American country singer Jason Aldean's "Dirt Road Anthem," the third single from his fourth album My Kinda Party climbs an impressive 14 spots up to #9, scoring his first ever top 10 single. A weird pairing, I know, but similarly rapper Nicki Minaj also scores her first ever solo top 10 hit with "Super Bass" which climbs a notch up to #10 this week, she'd previously only been a couple spots out with "Moment 4 Life" (#13) and "Your Love" (#14). Congrats!

14. Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall - Coldplay

British alternative rock band Coldplay new single "Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall" climbs 15 notched up to #14, scoring the band their third top 20 single, following "Viva La Vida" (which became their first chart topper) and "Speed of Sound" which became their first top 10, peaking at #8.
