Billboard Hot 100, July 3, 2010

1. California Gurls - Katy Perry feat. Snoop Dogg

Katy Perry spends a third week at #1 with "California Gurls," which also looks headed to #1 in Britain this week. Be prepared for this song to settle in for a long run at #1. It's a massive, massive hit. Bigger even than "I Kissed a Girl" most likely. At top 40 radio where the song is also #1 this week, it has over 12,000 spins, which is an amazing tally...and...posted a 1500 spin gain over last week. For those who understand what this means its head-spinning. We could be looking at the biggest hit at top 40 radio in a decade. Seriously, has a song topped 13,000 spins at top 40 radio? This could do it. She's also the Airplay Gainer...clearly.

5. Find Your Love - Drake

Drake scores his second top 5 solo hit, making "Find Your Love" his second biggest hit after his breakout #2 single "Best I Ever Had."

8. Cooler than Me - Mike Posner

Mike Posner scores his first top 10 hit as "Cooler than Me" climbs six spots to #8. It's this week's digital gainer.

31. Dynamite - Taio Cruz

Taio Cruz lands his second top 40 hit as "Dynamite," the follow-up to his #1 "Break Your Heart," enters the top 40 by climbing 14 spots to #31. This is a new track not included in the orginal UK release, although this will get a UK release later this summer. Great track.

33. Somebody to Love - Justin Bieber

Canadian teen singer Justin Bieber is hot property in the US right now. Yet he hasn't yet had a really stellar hit. His single "Baby," which peaked at #5 came closest, but wasn't massive. "Somebody to Love" is his 10th appearance in the top 40.

38. Waka Waka (This Time for Africa) - Shakira feat. Freshlyground

This scraped the bottom of the UK top 40 last week and does so in the US this week. This is Shakira's 8th top 40 hit.

I can't remember despising back to back #1s as much as I have with Katy Perry and Ke$ha. However, I am hooked on the Usher remix of Justin's "Somebody to Love". Why has the remix not been released yet?

John said... having said what I said, she's definitely going to cross 13000. That's just crazy. It's looking like a perfect storm kind of record.

Isn't it? I actually like the song, but it's not the best thing ever. I think it's just that she's broken out big over the last 2 years, it's her first major single in awhile, it's a good summertime song, etc. I haven't heard the Usher remix of "Somebody to Love." I'm not a big Bieber follower.
