While Eminem loses his No. 1 standing on the Billboard 200, he remains perched atop the Billboard Hot 100 for a seventh week with "Love the Way You Lie," featuring Rihanna. The song tops Radio Songs for a fourth frame, improving to 159 million listener impressions (up 3%), according to Nielsen BDS, while downloads sales slip 12%, according to Nielsen SoundScan, though the track rebounds 3-2 on Digital Songs.
Katy Perry becomes the latest threat to end Eminem and Rihanna's stay at No. 1, as "Teenage Dream" takes both the Airplay and Digital Gainer awards with a jump from 3-2. A bump in download sales (259,000, up 24%) gives the singer her third chart-topper on Digital Songs, while an 11-7 bounce on Radio Songs (84.3 million, up 30%) ups her top 10 tally on that list to five.
Of her radio singles, only "Thinking Of You" (No. 55 peak) has failed to reach the top 10 on the Radio Songs tally. Back in the Hot 100 top 10, Perry's "California Gurls," featuring Snoop Dogg continues to accumulate points towards securing the 2010 Summer Song crown, with a single-slot jump to No. 7. The final 2010 Summer Song ranking will appear on Billboard.com next Thursday (Sept. 8).
