Katy Perry's "California Gurls" just won't give up its spot as the most played song in the country, as it stays at #1 for the 6th consecutive week. ¬†Katy also has the week's highest debut in the top 40, at #25 with her new track, "Teenage Dream." ¬† Katy's long run at #1 has prevented B.o.B from having back-to-back #1's to begin his career, as "Airplanes" begins to fall this week after spending 5 frustrating weeks at #2.
Enrique Iglesias this week scores his first top 10 hit in 8 years (since 2002's "Escape" hit #7), as "I Like It" jumps up to #9. ¬†The other new song in the top 10 is "Find Your Love" by Drake, the second time the former¬†Degrassi star¬†accomplishes this feat (after last summer's "Best I Ever Had" hit #10).
Besides "Teenage Dream," two other songs debut in the top 40 this week. ¬†"Animal," the first ever hit by alternative band Neon Trees, and Train's "If It's Love," their 5th top 40 hit, and the follow-up to the biggest hit of their career "Hey, Soul Sister."
This week's biggest jumper belongs to Ke$ha, who climbs from #33 to #27 with her 4th hit off of Animal, "Take It Off."
Eminem and Rihanna's "Love The Way You Lie" will most likely be the next #1 song on the airplay charts, as they climb to #2 this week. ¬†They have already reached #1 on the Hot 100 (which combines airplay and downloads), where they are now spending their 2nd week. ¬†If it does reach #1 on the airplay charts, it will be Eminem's first #1 since his 8 Mile soundtrack hit, "Lose Yourself," in 2002.
