LMFAO spends its second week atop the Billboard Hot 100, to be released tomorrow (July 14) on Billboard.biz, with "Party Rock Anthem," featuring Lauren Bennett and GoonRock, while Lil Wayne's "How to Love" and OneRepublic's "Good Life" claims the chart's Greatest Gainers/Airplay and Digital, respectively.

"Party" tallies a second week at No. 1 on Hot Digital Songs, although it declines by 9% to 236,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. On Hot 100 Airplay, the track holds at No. 3 with a 9% gain to 125 million in all-format audience, according to Nielsen BDS.

Pitbull's "Give Me Everything," featuring Ne-Yo, AfroJack and Nayer, collects a second week at No. 2 on the Hot 100 after it had logged a week at the summit two weeks ago. The song ascends to the top of Hot 100 Airplay (2-1), gaining by 1% in airplay to 152 million. "Give" marks Pitbull's first Hot 100 Airplay leader among 16 entries dating to his first, "Culo," in 2004.

"Give" holds at No. 3 on Hot Digital Songs (159,000, down 17%).

Adele's former seven-week Hot 100 No. 1 "Rolling in the Deep" remains at No. 3 and Katy Perry's "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" spends a fourth week at No. 4. On Hot 100 Airplay, "Friday" jumps 8-6 (97 million, up 15%). After notching two weeks atop Hot Digital Songs, "Friday" claims a second week at No. 2 on the survey (192,000, down 7%).

The top six titles on the Hot 100 maintain their rankings, as Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass" remains at No. 5 and Lady Gaga's "The Edge of Glory" holds at No. 6. "Bass" bumps 7-5 on Hot 100 Airplay (98 million, up 12%), while retaining its No. 3 rank on Hot Digital Songs (158,000, down 7%). "Glory" rises 5-4 on Hot 100 Airplay (99 million, up 1%) and rebounds 11-9 on Hot Digital Songs (where it peaked at No. 2 upon its debut in May), although it deflates by 15% to 103,000.

Lil Wayne lifts 8-7 on the Hot 100 with "How to Love," which nabs Greatest Gainer/Airplay honors on the strength of a 13-9 advance on Hot 100 Airplay (74 million, up 27%). The ascent grants Lil Wayne his 14th top 10 on the airplay ranking and his first as a lead artist since "Mrs. Officer," featuring Bobby Valentino and Kidd Kidd, reached No. 6 in October 2008.

On Hot Digital Songs, "Love" holds at No. 8, up almost 1% to 128,000.

OneRepublic's "Good Life" pushes 9-8 on the Hot 100 with Greatest Gainer/Digital accolades, bounding 12-6 on Hot Digital Songs (137,000, up 23%). The song is the group's first top 10 on the latter chart since its sole prior top 10 as a lead act, "Stop and Stare," peaked at No. 8 in April 2008. The group first graced Hot Digital Songs as a featured act on Timbaland's two-week No. 1 "Apologize."

"Life" holds at No. 12 on Hot 100 Airplay (63 million, up 8%).

Nashville quartet Hot Chelle Rae rises 10-9 with its first Hot 100 entry, "Tonight Tonight." The song climbs 9-7 on Hot Digital Songs (129,000, up 1%) and surges 26-22 on Hot 100 Airplay (45 million, up 11%), fueled by an 11-9 advance on Mainstream Top 40.

Perry's former five-week Hot 100 No. 1 "E.T," featuring Kanye West, dips 7-10 in its 20th week in the top 10 (and 22nd on the chart). Thanks to the top 10 ranks of "Friday" and "E.T.," Perry extends her Hot 100 record to 61 consecutive weeks in the chart's top tier.

All charts, including the Hot 100, Hot Digital Songs and Hot 100 Airplay, will be refreshed tomorrow on Billboard.biz.
