1. Teenage Dream - Katy Perry
Katy Perry spends a second week at #1 with "Teenage Dream," her 8th week at #1 this year. That puts her in a tie with Eminem for the 3rd most weeks at #1 this year after the 10 weeks for Ke$ha and the 12 weeks for Rihanna. I have a feeling she may extend her lead to 13 weeks next week, with her new single "Only Girl (in the World)" firmly planted at #1 on iTunes and quickly zooming up the airplay chart.
3. Just the Way You Are - Bruno Mars
Challenging Rihanna for #1 next week is Bruno Mars, who climbs a notch to #3 and is this week's airplay gainer. This feels like a #1 hit, but it will have to make its move soon.
9. Club Can't Handle Me - Flo Rida feat. David Guetta
Flo Rida scores his fifth top 10 hit this week, as "Club Can't Handle Me" climbs 4 notches to #9. It's the first single from his third album, The Only One. The first singles from his other albums, "Low" and "Right Round" were both #1 hits, and "Club Can't Handle Me" has already been #1 in the UK. This is the second top 10 hit for David Guetta, who hit #5 earlier this year with "Sexy Bitch."
Hmm...Not a particularly eventful week. There's nothing else I feel the need to highlight. Next week however should be quite interesting with Rihanna angling for her 8th #1 hit, and Florence and the Machine, hot off their MTV VMA appearance, converting from indie to mainstream with "Dog Days Are Over."
