UK Singles Chart, April 16, 2011

1. On the Floor - Jennifer Lopez feat. Pitbull

Congratulations to J.Lo as she extends her run at #1 a second week. It's the first time she's managed to do so, since "Love Don't Cost a Thing" and "Get Right" each spent a solitary week at #1. That's still far less time she's spent at the top than with her American #1s, among which her shortest run was 4 weeks with "All I Have."

2. Party Rock Anthem - LMFAO

Britons must be gearing up for Easter holiday, as the dance tunes are ruling the chart this week. LMFAO climbs a notch to #2, and several party-friendly tracks move into the top 10 this week.

3. Someone Like You - Adele

It looks like Adele's time at #1 for "Someone Like You" has passed; however, her 21 retains its hold at #1 on the albums chart for an 11th consecutive week, just 1 week behind the 12-week record set by Bob Marley's Legend. I imagine this will be it's last week at the top (for now) as The Foo Fighters will present the best chance yet to end her reign.

5. E.T. - Katy Perry feat. Kanye West

Katy Perry climbs 7 notches to #5, making "E.T." the fourth consecutive top 5 hit from Teenage Dream. Including her two featured appearance singles, she's now had 8 top 5 hits.

6. Buzzin - Mann feat. 50 Cent

Mann climbs 5 spots to #6 with "Buzzin'," scoring his first top 10 hit. I really like this song, which makes liberal use of Portland, Oregon-based Nu Shooz's 1986 hit "I Can't Wait," which reached #2.

9. Sweat - Snoop Dogg vs. David Guetta

Snoop "Doggy" Dogg scores his third top 10 hit as a lead performer with "Sweat," a remixed, radio-friendly version of hits current single "Wet." The track is courtesy of DJ extraordinaire David Guetta, who is no stranger to the top 10.

20. Beautiful People - Chris Brown feat. Benny Benassi

Even Chris Brown has the dance music bug with his decidedly uptempo track from F.A.M.E. debuting this week at #20. Along with his previous single "Yeah 3X" at #19 and his collaborations with Chipmunk at #26 ("Champion") and T-Pain at #40 ("Best Love Song"), he's one of two acts with four entries in the top 40 this week. The other? His ex, Rihanna, who also has two singles in the top 20--"S&M" at #12 and "All of the Lights (with Kanye West)" at #15--plus David Guetta's "Who's That Chick" at #28 and "Only Girl" at #38.

32. Girls Fall Like Dominoes - Nicki Minaj

Minaj scores her fourth top 40 hit. Go Nicki!

I'm sorry for saying this, but I personally can't stand Nicki Minaj's voice. To be honest, she sounds very much like Rebecca Black will in 10 years if she decides to rap...

Enough already about Rebecca Black! Is she really that great? Or even so bad that she's good? I haven't really listened to her yet.
