Usher earns ninth No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 single, Jay-Z gets 17th top 10

usher-jay-zImage Credit: Kent Miller/PR PhotosAs we reported yesterday, B.o.B steps aside this week, making way for Usher‘s “OMG,” to sit pretty at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 singles chart. B.o.B’s “Nothin’ on You” now is No. 2, while Rihnna’s “Rude Boy” backs into No. 3.

Lady Antebellum‘s “Need You Now” steps back from No. 4 to No. 5 and Train’s “Hey, Soul Sister” from No. 5 to No. 6.

Don’t feel too bad for B.o.B. The rapper’s new single “Airplanes,” featuring Eminem and Hayley Williams is making a run for the top spot, shooting up from No. 9 to No. 7.

Ke$ha’s “Your Love Is My Drug” repeats at No. 8. Jason DeRulo’s “In My Head” falls from No. 7 to No. 9.

Jay-Z‘s “Young Forever” rounds out the top 10, jumping from No. 12 to No. 10. He now leads all rappers with the most to top 10 singles ever. He’s got 17 under his belt. Before “Young,” Jay’s 16 tied him with Ludacris. Luda’s on his heals, though. His “My Chick Bad,” featuring Nicki Minaj is at No. 11 this week.

Drake’s debut single “Over” from his forthcoming debut, Thank Me Later, moves up from No. 16 to No. 14. As does Lady Gaga’s “Alejandro” from No. 20 to No. 16.

Do you think Ludacris is going to catch Jay-Z soon? Happy Usher’s at No. 1 again?

    “OMG” is really catchy, even though it really isn’t an Usher song. Anyone could sing that and sound great with as much autotune and vocoder are on it.

    As much as I like Usher, the song OMG does nothing for me. Daddy’s Home is much better.

  • KY In the SKY

    Lil Freak is a much better song than OMG

  • Southern Boy

    why do people even like the song OMG. i hate it, even thow i like Usher and think There goes my Baby is a great song.

    to me, it sounds nothing like a top 50 singl, let alone #1
