Billboard Hot 100, May 28, 2011

1. Rolling in the Deep - Adele

Adele lands a second week at #1. She's still #1 at iTunes, is this week's airplay gainer, and is on her way to being #1 at top 40 radio quite soon--probably next week. I think she could be settling in for a nice long run at #1.

3. The Edge of Glory - Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga turns around the apparent misfortune of "Judas," making a rather impressive #3 debut with "The Edge of Glory." It's her 10th top 10 hit and 6th to reach the top 3.

18. Dirty Dancer - Enrique Iglesias with Usher feat. Lil Wayne

Enrique Iglesias makes a strong entry with "Dirty Dancer," the third top 40 hit from his album Euphoria. This is the first Iglesias album to generate three top 40 hits since his 1999 English-language debut, Enrique. Two of the albums previous singles peaked at #4--"I Like It" (feat. Pitbull) and "Tonight (I'm Loving You)" (feat. Ludacris).

22. Super Bass - Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj makes a big splash in the top 40, up 26 notches with "Super Bass," the fifth top 40 hit from Pink Friday (albeit only on the deluxe edition).

29. Rolling in the Deep - Glee Cast
34. Friday - Glee Cast

I believe this is a first: The Glee Cast charts in the top 40 with their version of the current #1 hit. You can't get any more timely than that.

Also of note is the Glee Cast's version of Rebecca Black's "Friday," which, despite being an internet sensation, never cracked the top 40. Thus Glee Cast has actually out-charted the original version of the song, which is pretty impressive.

35. (It) Feels So Good - Steven Tyler

Not be outdone by his American Idol co-star Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler scores his own hit single, "(It) Feels So Good," the first solo top 40 hit for the Aerosmith frontman. It's been 10 years since Tyler's been in the top 40. Last time out was on Aerosmith's "Jaded," a #7 hit in 2001.
