Billboard Hot 100, May 29, 2010

1. OMG - Usher feat. Will.I.Am
2. California Gurls - Katy Perry feat. Snoop Dogg

So Katy Perry wasn't #1 after all but a return to the top for "OMG," which spends a second nonconsecutive week at #1. He is the airplay gainer, so despite Perry's big first-week sales and rapidly rising airplay, he's too far ahead on the airwaves for her to catch him (this week). But Perry does pretty well, debuting at #2. It's her fourth top 10 hit, first single last year's "Waking Up in Vegas" hit #9. It features Snoop Dogg, whose last top 10 hit was "Sensual Eruption (or Seduction)," which hit #7 a couple of years ago.

3. Airplanes - B.o.B. feat. Hayley Williams
4. Nothin' on You - B.o.B. feat. Bruno Mars

B.o.B. goes back-to-back with his new single "Airplanes," up 2 to #3, and his recent #1 hit "Nothin' on You," down 1 this week.

7. Your Love Is My Drug - Ke$ha
8. Alejandro - Lady GaGa

Ke$ha's "Your Love Is My Drug" has always been ahead of "Alejandro" on the charts, but Lady GaGa has caught up, climbing 3 spots to #8 to score her 7th top 10 hit. I'd love to see GaGa overtake Ke$ha next week.

19. Bulletproof - La Roux

La Roux climbs into the top 20, up 4 this week to #19.

20. Find Your Love - Drake

Drake is this week's Digital Gainer and biggest mover within the top 40, up 14 spots to #20.

23. Jessie's Girl - Glee Cast

The Glee kids have yet another top 40 hit. "Jessie's Girl" was top 10 at iTunes much of the week, but that wasn't good enough to give them back-to-back top 20 hits (following last week's "Total Eclipse of the Heart," which hit #16). This is the 11th top 40 single from the popular show.

ew, i do not like the katy perry song, but i do quite like the lady gaga song so it all balances out nicely. Almost.

Really? No chance it could be a grower? I think it's going to be a monster-size hit.
