As tipped here yesterday, one Capitol artist succeeds the other atop the Billboard Hot 100 this week, with Katy Perry's "I Kissed a Girl" (2-1) trumping Coldplay's "Viva La Vida" (1-6). The last pair of titles from the label to reign consecutively on the Hot 100 was Sylvers' "Boogie Fever" and Wings "Silly Love Songs" in May 1976.
"I Kissed a Girl" also becomes the 1,000th No. 1 of the rock era, which began with Bill Haley and His Comet's "Rock Around the Clock" in 1955. The first 39 of those on the Best Sellers list, and the remainder on the Billboard Hot 100.
Lil Wayne's "Lollipop" moves 3-2 on the Hot 100 this week, while Leona Lewis' "Bleeding Love" rises 4-3 and Rihanna's "Take a Bow" jumps 5-4. Chris Brown's "Forever" is also on the move 8-7, while Plies' "Push It Baby Part 2" featuring Ne-Yo moves 11-8.
The Pussycat Dolls' "When I Grow Up" bolts 18-9, and Miley Cyrus' "7 Things" explodes 70-10, tying her career-best mark on the tally. The track sold 130,000 digital downloads last week.
"This Is Me," Demi Lovato and Joe Jonas' duet from "Camp Rock," is the top debut on the Hot 100 at No. 11, one of four songs from the soundtrack new to the chart this week. Also new are Rihanna's "Disturbia" at No. 18 and Flo Rida's "In the Ayer" featuring will.i.am at No. 38.
Keyshia Cole's "Heaven Sent" begins a third week at No. 1 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, where Solange Knowles' "I Decided" is the top debut at No. 44. On Hot Country Songs, Kenny Chesney's "Better As a Memory" is No. 1 for a second frame.
Billboard's rock charts are static once again at the top; Weezer is No. 1 on Modern Rock with "Pork & Beans" for an eighth week, and Disturbed's "Inside the Fire" tops Mainstream Rock for a eigth as well.
