Madonna  extends her lead as the act with the most top 10s on the Dance Club/Play Songs chart as "Turn Up the Radio" zooms 19-8 in its third chart week -- marking the diva's 57th top 10.
It's her 28th top 10 in a row -- a streak that began with 1999's "Beautiful Stranger" (No. 1 for two weeks). "Turn Up the Radio" bowed at No. 39, and then moved to No. 19 before sailing to No. 8 this week.
Further, "Turn Up the Radio's" swift rise to the top 10 is especially notable. Since 2010, only six songs have jumped into the region in three weeks or less -- and three of them are by Madonna. Aside from "Turn Up the Radio," she also sped into the top 10 earlier this year in three weeks time with "Girl Gone Wild" (46-20-7 on April 7) and "Give Me All Your Luvin" (in only two weeks: 24-9 on March 10).
The other three fast-risers? They belong to fellow diva Lady Gaga . "Marry the Night" vaulted into the top 10 in three weeks (moving 33-15-7 on Jan. 7, 2012) as did "You And I" (31-18-8 on Oct. 8, 2011) and "Alejandro" (40-16-7 on June 12, 2010).
HEY NOW!: Everyone's favorite "All Star" band is back, as Smash Mouth  returns to Billboard's charts for the first time since 2006. The group's "Magic" debuts at No. 26 on Adult Contemporary and is the title track from the act's new album, due Sept. 6.
"Magic" is the band's first Adult Contemporary hit, though the group notched seven entries on the Pop Songs tally between 1997 and 2003. The act's biggest hit on that chart was "All Star," which spent six weeks atop the list in 1999. They've also claimed a Billboard No. 1 with "Walkin' On the Sun," which spent five weeks at atop Alternative Songs in 1997.
HUNG UP: Maroon 5's  "Payphone" (featuring Wiz Khalifa) has seemingly tied for the single with the most weeks in the top three -- that never went to No. 1 -- as it dips 3-5. The tune spent 15 weeks bouncing between Nos. 2 and 3 on the chart.
If "Payphone" does not receive a call back to the top three, it will have equaled the top three runs of these non-No. 1s: LeAnn Rimes'  "How Do I Live," Shania Twain's  "You're Still the One" and Timbaland  featuring OneRepublic's  "Apologize." All four songs peaked at No. 2.
It could have been worse -- at least "Payphone" reached No. 2. There are those hits that stall out at No. 3 for weeks upon weeks, but never go higher. Take Real McCoy's  1994 hit "Another Night," for example. The song spent 11 nonconsecutive weeks at No. 3, but never went any higher. In turn, it secured the record as the song with the most weeks stuck at No. 3 in the Hot 100's history.
None of Real McCoy's subsequent hits went higher, though "Another Night's" immediate follow-up track, "Run Away," did quite well on the Hot 100. It too peaked at No. 3. Though, it only racked a solitary week at the position, on April 8, 1995.
NO. 1 . . . EVERYWHERE: Gotye's  smash "Somebody That I Used to Know" adds another chart-topping feat under its belt, as it rises to No. 1 on Adult Contemporary. In May, it became the first song to hit No. 1 on Alternative Songs, Dance Club/Play Songs and the Billboard Hot 100. Thus, "Somebody" is now the only tune to have topped all four of the above-mentioned tallies. It's one of the most crossed-over hits in Billboard history, having also climbed to No. 1 on Triple A, Rock Songs, Mainstream Top 40, Adult Top 40 and Dance/Mix Show Airplay.
So, what airplay charts has "Somebody That I Used to Know" NOT been No. 1? Among our other lists, the tune went as high as No. 10 on Rhythmic Songs, and No. 36 on Latin Songs. (Seeing English-language hits on the Latin Songs chart is fairly common, though they often don't reach the top 10.)
BLINDED BY THE 'LIGHTS': The blindingly successful "Lights" by Ellie Goulding  continues to barrel up the chart track, motoring 5-2. Meanwhile, on the Adult Top 40 chart, the song makes the longest climb into the top 10 by a woman in a single chart run as it motors 11-8 in its 28th week. (Sarah McLachlan's "I Will Remember You [Live]" took 29 weeks, but in two separate chart runs.)
Among all acts, "Lights'" rise is the slowest to the region since OneRepublic's "All the Right Moves" also took 28 frames on April 24, 2010. The all-time most-leisurely route to the top 10 is owned by Augustana's "Boston," which waited 32 weeks (Jan. 27, 2007).
'GOIN' ON AT NO. 1: Just two weeks after Katy Perry set the mark for the most No. 1s in a row on Dance Club/Play Songs  (with 10), Jennifer Lopez  ties that feat with her latest leader, "Goin' In." Lopez's current No. 1 streak began in 2007 with "Que Hiciste."
She followed it up later that year with "Hold It, Don't Drop It," "Do It Well" and returned in 2010 with "Fresh Out the Oven" (under the pseudonym Lola, featuring Pitbull ) and "Louboutins." In 2011 she topped the list with "On the Floor" (featuring Pitbull), "I'm Into You" (featuring Lil Wayne)" and "Papi." Earlier this year she hit No. 1 again with Pitbull, this time with "Dance Again."
Before her streak started, she claimed three more No. 1s: "Waiting for Tonight" (1999), "Feelin' So Good" (2000; featuring Big Pun & Fat Joe) and "Get Right" (2005).
