Katy Perry rules the Billboard Hot 100 chart for fifth week in a row

katy-perryImage Credit: Ari MichelsonThis is one boring week on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Mostly because the first five spots in the top 10 are the same as last week’s. For the fifth straight week, Katy Perry‘s “California Gurls” tops the chart. Eminem’s “Love the Way You Lie” featuring Rihanna is No. 2 for it’s second week in a row. Usher‘s “OMG” holds the No. 3 spot, while B.o.B’s “Airplanes” does the same at No. 4. And Travie McCoy’s “Billionaire” is No. 5.

The fun starts at No. 6, where newcomer Mike Posner creeps up a spot with “Cooler Than Me.” Taio Cruz’s “Dynamite” leaps seven places to No. 7. Drake’s “Find Your Love” seems to have stalled out, dropping two places to No. 8. Jason Derulo’s “Ridin’ Solo” moves up one to No. 9. And Eminem’s “Not Afraid” closes out the top 10.

Mike Posner is getting close to the top spot. Do you think the Duke grad can rise to No. 1? If not him, then who? Let us know.

    It’d be nice, as many people have said before, if you did more than just rehash the top 10. Maybe then you’d find the real fun.

    Love the Way You Lie is definetly on its way to number one, just wait until the video and promotion gets kicked in.

    Katy Perry’s song and Usher’s sell-out “OMG” makes me change the dial every time. Music is bad right now.

    Well, at least Brad gave us something to discuss this week…

    I like “Cooler Than Me,” but I doubt it will hit #1, much less get any higher than where it is now. Taio Cruz will likely leapfrog over him next week due to digital sales. Eminem will likely rise to #1 next, but it may take a couple of weeks because of all the formats California Gurls is on — Top 40, Rhythmic, HAC…even Adult Contemporary (!)
