Rihanna Continues to Reign on Social 50, Lady Gaga Jumps to No. 2

Dating to her first week in the Hot 100's top tier just almost seven years ago (July 16, 2005) with her debut single "Pon De Replay," Rihanna's 22 top 10s in that span are the most among all acts. Lil Wayne is second in that stretch with 16. Among women in that time frame, Rihanna boasts twice as many top 10s as her next closest female competitor, Lady Gaga (11).

"Been" concurrently reaches the top 10 on Hot 100 Airplay, jumping 14-9 with a 17% gain to 64 million audience impressions, according to Nielsen BDS. The song is Rihanna's 19th Hot 100 Airplay top 10, pushing her past Lil Wayne (18) for the second-most top 10s since the chart launched in December 1990. Only Mariah Carey (23) has more in the chart's history.

"Been" additionally bumps 8-6 on Hot Digital Songs with 144,000 downloads sold (down 1%), according to Nielsen SoundScan, and 39-32 on On-Demand Songs with 286,000 on-demand streams, according to BDS.

The song is Rihanna's second Hot 100 top 10 from her latest album, Talk That Talk. She spent 10 weeks at No. 1 with first single "We Found Love." Both tracks feature the writing and production talents of Scottish DJ Calvin Harris.

Atop this week's Hot 100, Gotye's "Somebody" manages to hold off Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" for another week, although the points gap between the two titles continues to shrink.

"Somebody" posts an eighth week at No. 1, fueled by a third week atop Hot 100 Airplay; with 145 million in all-format audience (up 5%), the song continues to rewrite the mark for the largest weekly audience for a track by a solo male rock act in the chart's archives. The song rebounds 4-3 on Hot Digital Songs (247,000, down 6%), while staying atop On-Demand Songs (1.1 million on-demand streams, down 5%) for a seventh week.

Jepsen's "Maybe" holds at No. 2 on the Hot 100. It ranks at No. 1 on Hot Digital Songs for a third week (284,000, down 6%), surges 7-4 on Hot 100 Airplay (103 million, up 20%) and bullets again at No. 2 on On-Demand Songs (1 million, up 1%).

With "Maybe" up by 2% in overall Hot 100 points and "Somebody" down by 2%, momentum continues in Jepsen's favor as she seeks to dethrone Gotye's smash perhaps as soon as next week.

Maroon 5's "Payphone," featuring Wiz Khalifa, stays at No. 3 on the Hot 100, bounding 6-3 on Hot 100 Airplay (103 million, up 16%) and climbing 3-2 on Hot Digital Songs (257,000, down 3%). With its latest sales frame, "Payphone" has passed 2 million in download sales to date (2.2 million). The song holds at No. 3 on On-Demand Songs (913,000, down 6%).

fun.'s former six-week Hot 100 No. 1 "We Are Young," featuring Janelle Monae, maintains its No. 4 rank on the Hot 100, while Nicki Minaj's "Starships" stays grounded again at its No. 5 peak to date. One Direction's former No. 4 hit "What Makes You Beautiful" reverses course 7-6, trading places with Flo Rida's "Wild Ones," featuring Sia (6-7).

Justin Bieber's "Boyfriend," which reached No. 2 on the Hot 100 upon its debut nine weeks ago, edges 9-8. Below Rihanna's "Been" at No. 9, the Wanted's No. 3-peaking "Glad You Came" descends 8-10.
