Usher stays on top of Billboard's Hot 100 chart

usherUsher remains king of Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart. His “OMG” comes in at No. 1 for its third non-consecutive week. Last week’s No. 2, Katy Perry’s “California Gurls,” featuring Snoop Dogg, falls to No. 3. While B.o.B’s “Airplanes” featuring Hayley Williams rises from No. 3 to No. 2. Taio Cruz’s “Break Your Heart,” featuring Ludacris, moves up one from No. 5 to No. 4.

Ke$ha‘s “Your Love Is My Drug” stays at No. 7. Lady Gaga is creeping up to her seventh straight top five hit. Her “Alejandro” moves up two spots to No. 6. Miley Cyrus bursts on to the chart with her latest single, “Can’t Be Tamed.” It debuts at No. 8. Two former No. 1s round out the top 10. Eminem‘s “Not Afraid” drops three to No. 9. And “Rude Boy” by Rihanna goes from No. 9 to No. 10.

La Roux‘s “Bulletproof,” an infectious track that has slowly been burning up the chart, landed at No. 14 this week. Drake closes out the top 20. His “Over” and “Find Your Love” are No. 19 and 20 respectively.

Happy for Miley Cyrus? Think Gaga is going to crack the top five? Talk to us.

    How can this horrible song still be number one? I was a big Usher fan up until his “Confessions” album; his last 2 albums are terrible. I guess that’s why I no longer listen to the radio. Nothing but garbage all day long on every station.

    Well there goes California Gurls being the song of the summer. Airplanes or OMG it is!

  • dipshat

    Well Mel, it’s not all bad, but yes, OMG does suck.

    Brad, do you just copy and paste your piece directly from It’s highly coincidental that you made the same error that they did (like last week). Lady GaGa will not score her seventh straight top five hit with “Alejandro,” as “Paparazzi” only managed to make it to #6.

      Hey beb!! Us longtime EW posters must seem like grumpy old men constantly complaining bout these EW writers. Yesterday Brad spelled Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Damien when writing adding hsi own 2 cents to the press release about this week’s Billboard 200!!

      Ya know, I NEVER EVER wanted to be a writer for Entertainment Weekly, but I feel as though I could a much better job than half of the new current hacks they got going. And its also SAD that almost EVERY freaking post is a rehash of a story ran on EVERY OTHER WEBSITE…like the 50 Cent dropping all the weight…yes, I understand its a big deal cause he looks scary thin, but when the SAME story is already on,, PopEater, etc…and then the only other real Music Mix pieces that day are also rehashes of OTHER stories with no real inside scoop or just copying press releases, its PATHETIC. I would love to sit in on a EW editorial meeting and see whats said, cause the output is horredously shoddy. I can’t be the ONLY person that feels this way. And as a loyal EW reader and poster on, its disgusting.

        Phil!!! I agree that things are getting a little sloppy over here (they’re just as bad at Billboard, too). If I was in a writer’s shoes covering this story, I would look further down the chart and highlight some songs that are starting to make some inroads and perhaps why– like Shontelle’s “Impossible” that moves 51-41 based on its move up iTunes and a solid increase in Top 40 airplay, or David Guetta’s “Getting Over You,” which makes an 83-61 leap. Looks like we’ll have American Idol impact next week, unfortunately. Lee has nothing on Bono, but I would expect a top 20 debut for “Beautiful Day” based on sales.

    With Lady GaGa’s “Paparazzi” only peaking on the Hot 100 at #6, she is not in a position to score seven consecutive top 5’s if Alejandro moves up a notch.

  • stephanie

    • Kenyanbabe

  • Kenyanbabe

    Look’s like Usher is back. He made a really nice come back after a really long time of not hearing him.

  • Jael

    I think that Raymond vs. Raymond is arguably better than Confessions. ALSO lil freak is way better than omg.

    OMG is ok. Everything is good, but Will.I.Am knows he could have had some more BASS in that song. They way he Boomed the heck outta “Boom boom pow,” OMG could have more bite; it’s so soft. But I won’t argue much with the number one song. I don’t care that much.

  • swf

    lady gaga rocks!
    seventh number one!

  • markus

    OMG sucks, not a hater here, only stating facts, it’s horrible cant even be compared to Yeah
