Pitbull unleashes his first top 10, "American Idol" spurs movement for Katy Perry, Jordin Sparks and the Fray, and Jeremih jumps into the top 10 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart this week.
Pitbull’s 10th Hot 100 appearance marks his first top 10, as “I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)" jumps 11-4. The song posts an 11-2 leap on Hot Digital Songs with 129,000 downloads (up 69%), while also reaching the top 10 of Hot 100 Airplay (14-9) with 62 million listener impressions (up 10%).
The Black Eyed Peas' "Boom Boom Pow" spends a seventh week at No. 1 and becomes the act's first Hot 100 Airplay topper. Lady GaGa's "Poker Face" holds at No. 2 and Jamie Foxx feat. T-Pain's "Blame It" again ranks at No. 3. Kid Cudi's "Day ‘N' Nite" dips 4-5, Beyonce's "Halo" descends a spot to No. 6 and 3OH!3 lifts 8-7 with "Don't Trust Me." Flo Rida feat. Wynter's "Sugar" drops from No. 6 to No. 8, while Jeremih collects his first top 10, as "Birthday Sex" sizzles 13-9. The song also takes over the summit of Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. Rounding out the top 10 is Soulja Boy Tell'em feat. Sammie's "Kiss Me Thru the Phone," which dips from No. 7 to No. 10.
Three of last week's "American Idol" performances spur movement on this week's Hot 100. Katy Perry's "Waking Up in Vegas" rockets 51-13, while Jordin Sparks' "Battlefield" bows at No. 32. Newly-crowned "Idol" king Kris Allen's cover of Kanye West's "Heartless" enticed consumers to download the Fray's similar organic rendition, which enters at No. 79.
Eminem nets the chart's Hot Shot Debut at No. 17 with "Beautiful," the fifth song to chart from his new album "Relapse," set to debut atop next week's Billboard 200 album chart.
The Jonas Brothers' "Paranoid" pops on at No. 37. Even with the siblings' new series recently launching on the Disney Channel, the first single from their new set “Lines, Vines and Trying Times,” due June 16, starts with a relatively modest 65,000 downloads. The sum is well below the 183,000 shifted last July by “Burnin’ Up,” the preview track from the trio's last studio set, "A Little Bit Longer."
Also new on this week's Hot 100 is Cobra Starship feat. "Gossip Girl" star Leighton Meester's "Good Girls Go Bad" at No. 76; Jessie James' "Wanted," co-written by "Idol" judge Kara DioGuardi, at No. 87; Darius Rucker's third country single "Alright" at No. 91; the Pussycat Dolls feat. Nicole Scherzinger's "Hush Hush" at No. 96; and Trey Songz' "I Need a Girl" at No. 100.
As Green Day launches on the Billboard 200 at No. 1 with "21st Century Breakdown," lead single "Know Your Enemy" advances 2-1 on the Mainstream Rock airplay tally.
On the Hot Dance Club Play chart, Depeche Mode claims its eighth No. 1, as "Wrong" rises to the top slot. The coronation ties the veteran act with Pet Shop Boys for the most No. 1s among groups. The latter act meanwhile debuts at No. 36 with "Love Etc.," the first single from its new album, "Yes."
