"Like a G6," which features Cataracs & Dev, jets 6-2 on the Hot 100 and earns the Airplay Gainer honor with an improvement of 17.3 million listener impressions (up 30%, to 75.8 million), according to Nielsen BDS.

Katy Perry becomes the first artist to take two of her own tracks to No. 1 on Radio Songs this year, as "Teenage Dream" darts 2-1 with 135.3 million listener impressions. Rihanna, as a lead act and as a featured vocalist, has also placed two titles at No. 1 on that list in 2010. On the Hot 100, "Teenage Dream" slips 2-3, though it does post an overall point gain.
Also in dream mode is Nelly with "Just a Dream," which rises 7-4. Falling one spot each are "DJ Got Us Fallin' in Love," by Usher featuring Pitbull (4-5), and Taio Cruz's "Dynamite" (5-6).
Rihanna is part of the next two songs on the Hot 100, as her former No. 1 pairing with Eminem, "Love the Way You Lie," drops 3-7, while her own "Only Girl (in the World)" holds at No. 8.
Uptempo collaborations close out the top 10 with "I Like It," by Enrique Iglesias featuring Pitbull, holding at No. 9, and "Club Can't Handle Me," by Flo Rida featuring David Guetta, remaining at No. 10.
As mentioned yesterday, the Glee Cast sets a notable Hot 100 chart record, as the ensemble debuts an additional six songs on the chart from its Britney Spears-inspired episode, led by the troupe's rendition of "Toxic" at No. 16. That song sells 109,000 to start at No. 9 on Digital Songs, while the half-dozen entries sell a cumulative 406,000, down from the 409,000 shifted by last week's five new entries.
'Glee' Cast Breaks Beatles' Hot 100 Record
Profiting from the "Glee" effect is Paramore's "The Only Exception," the only non-Spears song performed on the Sept. 28 episode. While the cast's cover of the song moves 89,000 and debuts at No. 26 on the Hot 100, Paramore's original sells 71,000 (up 176%), a one-week high for the track as it rebounds 57-25 as the Digital Gainer honoree. The song's previous best download frame was on the chart dated Aug. 28 (49,000), when it reached its Hot 100 peak at No. 24.
Also making multiple debuts on the Hot 100 is Lil Wayne, who enters with four tracks from his No. 2-debuting album, "I Am Not a Human Being." Leading the charge is the unpleasantly titled "Gonorrhea" at No. 17, which opens at No. 10 on Digital Songs with 107,000.
Five of this week's 15 debuting songs are "Glee" and Weezy-free, including: "Hey Baby (Drop It to the Floor)," by Pitbull featuring T-Pain (No. 51); Nicki Minaj's "Right Thru Me" (No. 74); and "Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na)" by My Chemical Romance (No. 77). Also entering the list are Bruno Mars' "Grenade" at No. 81 and "Hope She Cheats On You (With A Basketball Player)" by Marsha Ambrosius at No. 88.
