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.
