Chart Moves: Bruno Mars, Kelly Clarkson Scale Hot 100

As previously reported, Maroon 5 spends a sixth week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with "One More Night," holding off PSY's "Gangnam Style," which remains at No. 2 for a fifth frame. Plus, Rihanna ("Diamonds") and Ne-Yo "Let Me Love You (Until You Learn to Love Yourself") enter the top 10. What other songs shine on the Hot 100 and other singles charts?

-- Bruno Mars:
"Locked Out of Heaven" roars 33-15 with the Hot 100's top Digital Greatest Gainer nod. Following Mars' well-received double duties as host and musical guest on NBC's "Saturday Night Live" (Oct. 20), the lead single from his sophomore set, "Unorthodox Jukebox" (due Dec. 11), vaults 22-9 (106,000 downloads sold, up 99%, according to Nielsen SoundScan) on Hot Digital Songs. It also soars 35-19 on Hot 100 Airplay (47 million audience impressions, up 20%, according to Nielsen BDS).

-- Kelly Clarkson: The original "American Idol" champion previews "Greatest Hits - Chapter 1" (due Nov. 19), as "Catch My Breath" bows at No. 54 on the Hot 100. The cut starts at No. 11 on Hot Digital Songs (87,000) and No. 32 on the airplay-based Adult Top 40 chart. Says Clarkson, "This song represents who I've been, what I've felt and where I'm headed as not only an artist but as a 30-year-old that is now smart enough to know that it's time to stop, catch my breath and be proud of not only what has been accomplished but of all the people that have helped me become the woman I am today."

-- Adele: "Skyfall," the theme to the James Bond movie of the same name (due in theaters on Nov. 9), plummets 13-40 on the Hot 100 after debuting at No. 8 two weeks ago. Following its initial sales splash, it levels off by 58% (to 84,000) and tumbles 3-13 on Hot Digital Songs. Still, radio spies a hit: "Skyfall" bounds 15-13 as the Greatest Gainer on Adult Contemporary; jumps 21-16 on Adult Top 40; and, re-enters Mainstream Top 40 at No. 37.

-- Justin Bieber: After spending a week at No. 72 upon the debut of parent album "Believe" atop the Billboard 200 (July 7), "Beauty and a Beat" (featuring Nicki Minaj) re-enters the Hot 100 at No. 71 and Hot Digital Songs at No. 31 (47,000, up 110%). Now a pop radio single, it should soon debut on Mainstream Top 40, as it registers a 315% increase with airplay on 55 stations just below the radio chart's threshold.

-- Calvin Harris: "Sweet Nothing," featuring Florence Welch, debuts at No. 96 on the Hot 100. The song marks the pair's second collaboration to top the Official U.K. Singles chart, where it launches at No. 1 this week. Harris remixed Florence Welch + the Machine's "Spectrum (Say My Name)," which led the July 28 U.K. ranking.

-- Bridgit Mendler: "Ready or Not," from the star of the Disney Channel's "Good Luck Charlie," begins on the Hot 100 at No. 98 and marks her first entry on Mainstream Top 40 (No. 35). The song introduces her debut album, "Hello My Name Is …," due on next week's Billboard 200.
