Billboard Hot 100, May 14, 2011

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

Katy Perry's "E.T." extends its run at #1 to 5 weeks, just a week shy of the 6 weeks she spent at #1 with "California Gurls," the first Teenage Dream single. The albums four singles have now collectively spent 17 weeks at #1. That puts the album second among the nine albums to have four or more #1 hits. In first place is Usher's Confessions, whose four #1 hits collectively spent 28 weeks at #1. The three #1 hits from Black Eyed Peas' The E.N.D. also spent 28 weeks at #1 collectively. Mariah Carey's Daydream comes close to this, with 26 weeks at #1 between its three #1s.

2. Rolling in the Deep - Adele

Adele holds at #2 this week. The single is #2 on Digital Songs, #7 on Radio Songs (entering the top 10 this week) and #1 at iTunes. I think she has a good shot at #1 next week.

3. Till the World Ends - Britney Spears

Britney climbs 8 notches to #3, earning this week's Digital Gainer, thanks to the new remix of this song featuring Nicki Minaj and Ke$ha. This is Spear's 3rd consecutive top 5 hit (7th overall).

5. The Lazy Song - Bruno Mars

Speaking of top 5 hits, Bruno Mars earns his fifth as "The Lazy Song" climbs a notch to #5. I'm still not really feeling this song. It's okay. I liked his other singles a lot more.

38. Party Rock Anthem - LMFAO feat. Lauren Bennett & GoonRock

LMFAO charges into the top 40 at #38, up 14 notches. The single--currently #1 in the UK--is their first to reach the top 40, not counting the two singles they appeared on as guest vocalists.
