Billboard Hot 100, July 30, 2011

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

It's a third week at #1 for LMFAO's "Party Rock Anthem," still steadily holding off Katy Perry from landing her what could be a legendary fifth #1 from Teenage Dream (and Pitbull's "Give Me Everything" from returning to the pinnacle). However, this week "Anthem" loses its bullet, while "Night" earns this week's airplay gainer award. Could next week be the week?

10. Skyscraper - Demi Lovato

Disney star Demi Lovato debuts at #10 with her new single "Skyscraper" the lead single from her forthcoming third album. It's her second top 10 following her duet with Joe Jonas of the Jonas Brothers "This Is Me" which peaked at #9 in 2008. It's a solid debut, however after a couple days at #1 on iTunes, it's plummeted to the bottom of the top 30 and without the assist of radio support--next week will most likely see the same extreme decline.

13. I Wanna Go - Britney Spears

Britney climbs 4 spots up to #13 with latest single "I Wanna Go." The song enters the top 10 on iTunes and is currently hanging around at #11 on Top 40 radio, which seems to be the perfect brew for a hopeful top 10 entry on the Hot 100 next week, which would be the first time since "(You Drive Me) Crazy" in 1999, that Spears' has entered the top 10 with a third single.

17. Lighters - Bad Meets Evil Featuring Bruno Mars

This week's digital gainer goes to "Lighters" the new single from hip-hop collaborative duo Eminem and Royce da 5'9" featuring Bruno Mars. It climbs 16 spots up to #17, just a notch short of its original peak at #16.

38. Pumped Up Kicks - Foster the People

American indie/pop band Foster the People score their first top 40 with "Pumped Up Kicks" which climbs 8 spots up to #38.

39. Right There - Nicole Scherzinger

Last week Kelly Rowland finally earned her first ever top 20 hit, this week fellow used-to-be-under achieving-pop-star-that-departed-from-a-successful-band, Nicole Scherzinger earns her first solo top 40 with "Right There," climbing 13 spots up to #39. Go Schezza!
