Billboard Hot 100, July 23, 2011

1. Party Rock Anthem - LMFAO Featuring Lauren Bennett & GoonRock
4. Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.) - Katy Perry

LMFAO's "Party Rock Anthem" spends a second week at bulleted #1, but is Katy Perry still a threat? "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" remains bulleted at #4 this week, however if airplay and iTunes is anything to go by, it's not over yet. Both songs are gaining steadily on Top 40 radio and in the top 3 on iTunes. Personally, I would like to see Perry earn her 5th #1 from Teenage Dream tying Michael Jackson's Bad's record for the most #1's spawned by one album.

7. How to Love - Lil Wayne
8. Good Life - OneRepublic

This week's airplay gainer (Lil Wayne's "How to Love") and digital gainer (OneRpublic's "Good Life") are successive this week, both moving up a notch earning a new peak.

17. I Wanna Go - Britney Spears

Britney's "I Wanna Go" climbs 5 spots up to #17, scoring the pop singer her 16th top 20 and her fourth highest third single after "(You Drive Me) Crazy" in 1999, "Stronger" the following year, and "Everytime" in 2004, beating out "Overprotected" (#86) "Break the Ice" (#43) and "If U Seek Amy" (#19) and It's also the third time she has scored three top 20's from one album.

19. Motivation - Kelly Rowland Featuring Lil Wayne

Congrats to Kelly Rowland, who FINALLY earns her first solo top 20 with "Motivation" climbing 2 spots up to #19. About time.

35. Love You Like a Love Song - Selena Gomez & The Scene

Selena Gomez & The Scene's "Love You Like a Love Song" climbs a pretty impressive 31 spots up to #35, scoring the Disney star and her band (ha!) their fifth top 40 single. Next week fellow Disney star Demi Lavato will also come storm into the upper reaches of the chart with her new single "Skyscraper" currently at #1 on iTunes.

36. Firework - Katy Perry

Why?

Ugh. "Skyscraper". Seriously, a slow song too boring for me to ever want to listen to. It's no Beyonce; and let's be honest - even Miley kicks Demi's butt with "The Climb"!

This is the third time Britney's had three top 20s from an album--Baby One More Time (#1), You Drive Me Crazy (#10) and From the Bottom of My Broken Heart (#14) from ...Baby One More TIme. And then Womanizer (#1), Circus (#3) and If U Seek Amy (#19) from Circus.

It is about time for Kelly Rowland. I don't understand why she hasn't had many hits here. I think "Daylight," if it had been properly promoted, could have been a big hit.

And as TwoStepCub pointed out on my blog, Firework reentered the top 40 because of the Fourth of July.
