1.(1) Moves Like Jagger - Maroon 5 (feat. Christina Aguilera)
Maroon 5 and Christina Aguilera spend a fourth week at #1. It's the 6th single to spend at least 4 weeks at #1 this year.
2.(2) Someone Like You - Adele
Adele is still stalled at #2, but probably not for long. The track is this week's airplay gainer and it's up to #2 at both Digital Songs and Radio Songs. A return for #1 is definitely coming soon.
10.(25) Sexy and I Know It - LMFAO
"Party Rock Anthem" felt like a one-hit wonder, so it's surprising to see LMFAO quickly pull off a second hit with "Sexy and I Know It," which has exploded in sales, but is catching up in airplay too (it's #21 at top 40 radio).
16.(NEW) We Found Love - Rihanna (feat. Calvin Harris)
Rihanna unexpectedly unleashed her new single late last week, so it missed out on the full week of sales that could have propelled it into the top 10. Since she elevated her producer to co-artist status, this gives Calvin Harris his first top 40 hit.
21.(32) Just a Kiss - Lady Antebellum
After starting off high on the basis of strong sales and generally falling the last few weeks, Lady Antebellum's latest single rebounds this week, up 11 notches.
A year ago, the second season premiere of Glee generated four top 40 hits, led by "Empire State of Mind" at #21. The third season premiere...produced none. The Glee tracks from last week's episode are down at #65 and #67. At this point, it's hard to tell whether it was the episode's lack of pop hits or the general decline in the show that's responsible for this. It will be interesting to see if the show can recover this year. After a wonderful first season, the second season was uneven, and ended on a low note, so much so that I lost interest in doing a weekly blog entry about it. So far, the third season started with a tepid first episode but a better second one.
