Billboard Hot 100, December 17, 2011

1. We Found Love - Rihanna feat. Calvin Harris

Rihanna spends a sixth week atop the chart with "We Found Love" featuring Calvin Harris. It's currently tied for 2nd place for the longest running #1 of the year with Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" and LMFAO's "Party Rock Anthem" featuring GoonRock and Lauren Bennett, both of which also spent six weeks at the top. I'm sure it has next week on lock too--which will then tie it with Adele's "Rolling In the Deep" for the longest running #1 of the year with 7 weeks.

2. Sexy and I Know It - LMFAO
3. It Will Rain - Bruno Mars

Speaking of LMFAO, they stay put at #2 with their annoying infectious single "Sexy and I Know It" but lose their bullet. Also staying put, but keeping its bullet is Bruno Mars' "It Will Rain" which is this weeks airplay gainer.

5. Good Feeling - Flo Rida

Flo Rida climbs three spots to #5 with "Good Feeling" scoring the rapper's fourth top 5 single following "Low" (#1) "Right Round" (#1) "Sugar" (#5). It's his first top 5 single that doesn't have a feature--if you don't count Etta James as a feature that is.

8. Niggas In Paris - Kanye West and Jay-Z

I'm surprised at how well this has caught on. Kanye West and Jay-Z's "Niggas In Paris" climb six spots up to #8, scoring the pair's first top 10 hit together--previous collaborative efforts, "Monster," "H-A-M," "Otis" missed the top 10 and "Lift Off" missed the top 100.

11. 5 O'Clock - T-Pain feat. Whiz Khalifa and Lily Allen

I thought for sure this would have entered the top 10 this week. T-Pain's "5 O'Clock" featuring Whiz Khlafia and Lily Allen stays bulleted at #11.

19. You Da One - Rihanna

Rihanna climbs back into the top 20 with Talk That Talk's 2nd single "You Da One" climbing three spots up to #19. It peaked at #14 a few weeks ago.

32. Marry the Night - Lady Gaga

In what people are calling Lady Gaga's "Thriller," more because of its ridiculously long length, rather than content--the accompanying video to the latest Born This Way single surely helped it surge 27 spots up to #32, scoring Gaga's 13th top 40 single.

37. Set Fire to the Rain - Adele

According to Billboard--it's is the live version of "Set Fire to the Rain," performed Live at the Royal Albert Hall--taken from the DVD of the same name that has risen a massive 19 spots up to #37, scoring Adele her fourth top 40 single, not the album track.

Are you sure about "Set Fire to the Rain?" That seems odd.

I think so, beneath the title it said Live at the Royal Albert
