Billboard Hot 100, November 19, 2011

1. (1) We Found Love - Rihanna (feat. Calvin Harris)

Rihanna spends a second week at #1 with "We Found Love." Doing so means the single outpaces all three of the Loud singles that reached #1, as each of those only spent 1 week in the top spot. This is Rihanna's 36th week at #1. Although she's one #1 hit short of Madonna's 12 chart-toppers, Rihanna's spent 5 more weeks at #1 now than Madge. "We Found Love" is also this week's airplay gainer, up three spots to #4 on Radio Songs.

2.(3) Sexy and I Know It - LMFAO

LMFAO moves into second place with "Sexy and I Know It," making it a possible #1 contender. It's strong in both sales (#2) and airplay (#5).

6.(7) Without You - David Guetta (feat. Usher)

Also a future #1 contender is David Guetta, whose "Without You" looks poised to be #1 at pop radio within a week. It's up one this week to #6.

8.(12) Good Feeling - Flo Rida (feat. Etta James)

Flo Rida climbs four spots scoring his sixth top 10 hit. The song samples Avicii's "Levels," which itself contains a sample of Etta James' 1962 hit "Something's Got a Hold on Me." James doesn't gets a featured credit on the song, but if she had, it would be her first top 40 appearance since her 1967 single "Security." The 73-year-old soul singer first appeared in the top 40 in 1960 with "All I Could Do Is Cry" (#33).

12.(21) It Will Rain - Bruno Mars

Bruno Mars' Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 single "I Will Rain" is this week's digital gainer, up 9 notches this week. I kinda thought this single might flop, but apparently not.

18.(34) The One that Got Away - Katy Perry

Katy Perry has this week's biggest mover within the top 40, up an impressive 16 notches to #18. The video for this song debuts tomorrow, and judging from the trailer (yes, music videos, which once basically were trailers, now have their own trailers), it's going to be epic. I think it's a safe best now that Teenage Dream will become the 7th album to score at least six top 10 hits. Still though lingers the big one--will it become history's first album to score six #1s.

20.(30) Dance A$$ - Big Sean (feat. Nicki Minaj)

I hadn't heard of this before, so I decided to check it out. It's interesting. This is American rapper Big Sean's third and so far biggest top 40 hit. It samples MC Hammer's iconic 1990 hit "U Can't Touch This." It also features Nicki Minaj in her 100th chart appearance this year. Well, okay, I think it's her 8th, but still, that's a lot.
