B.o.B trumps last week's Billboard showing with two tracks in top 10

b-o-bB.o.B‘s  is having an incredible run this week. After his “Nothin’ On You”snatched the No. 1 spot on Billboard‘s Hot 100 from Rihanna last week, he not only remains as the chart’s leading man, but his second single, “Airplanes,” featuring Paramore’s ‘Hayley jumps from No. 12 to No. 9 this week.

Rihanna’s “Rude Boy” sits still for its secong week at No. 2. Taio Cruz’s “Break Your Heart” featuring Ludacris moved up from No.4 to 3.

Lady Antebellum‘s “Need You Now” has been on the chart for just over nine months, but no one’s grown tired of the country song yet. It moves up from No. 5 to No. 4.  Train’s “Hey, Soul Sister” dropped from No. 3 to No. 5. Usher’s “OMG” continues its steady climb, moving up two spots to No. 6. Ke$ha’s “Your Love Is My Drug” advances one spot to No. 8.

Lady Gaga’s “Telephone” rounds out the top 10 at No. 10. And her latest single, “Alejandro,” also closes out the top 20 at  No. 20.

Jay-Z’s “Young Forever,” which features Englishman Mr. Hudson, creeps closer to the top 1o. This week it went from No. 17 to No. 12. Drake’s “Over” also moved up a bit from No. 20 to No. 16.

    Im glad for Lady Antebellum , there so awesome … seems like country is taking over the industry, as Taylor Swift dominated last year

    • Cole

      I completly agree. They are the best country act of the moment. Great voices, great songs, likable attitudes…whats not to love?

    I think “Nothin On You” is a sweet pop ditty, but I find myself listening to B.o.B’s “I’ll be in the Sky,” because his energy was amazing when I saw him perform it live. But Yeasayer’s “O.N.E” is getting the most play in my shuffle right now.

      i agree, I’ll be in the sky is an incredible song. I also feel like magic is going to be a big hit for b.o.b

    Damn you Record & Radio executives for ignoring actual rock music!!!!

    • Gladys

      Am also wondering,should we talkin about DOR(death of rock?)..am a rock chick and it sucks!

      • S.O.

        I don’t think its a Death of Rock (even though it sounds like it). There are plenty of really good rock bands out there that don’t get enough credit out there & are ignored by not only the general public but also not being advertised from record labels & radio executive cause it doesn’t sound hip-hop, American Idol, or country.

      • S.O.

        Such bands I’m implying to are like Muse, Silversun Pickups, Phoenix, Death Cab for Cutie, Cage The Elephant, The White Stripes, & so forth. All these bands I’ve mentioned have huge followings (sell out everywhere they play) & debut very high when they release a new album. Their songs are on rock or modern rock charts, but never on top 40.
