Katy Perry remains perched at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for a third consecutive week with "California Gurls," while the title earns the chart's Airplay Gainer award for a second straight frame. Up 16%, the track, which features Snoop Dogg, improves to 122.5 million listener impressions, according to Nielsen BDS, enough for a No. 3 ranking on Radio Songs. On Digital Songs, "California" cops a fifth week at No. 1, shifting 337,000 (down 6%), according to Nielsen SoundScan.
The next three tracks on the Hot 100 all retain their rankings from a week ago. Usher's "OMG," featuring will.i.am, holds at No. 2, "Airplanes" by B.o.B featuring Hayley Williams stands at No. 3 and "Billionaire" by Travie McCoy featuring Bruno Mars is planted at No. 4.
Drake, who makes big news on the Billboard 200, also makes an impact on the Hot 100. While "Find Your Love" jumps 10-5, "Over" slips 31-32 and "Miss Me," featuring Lil Wayne, drops 50-63 , the rapper/singer debuts four more titles on the list, including the top three new entries. "Up All Night," featuring Nicki Minaj, starts at No. 49, followed by "9AM in Dallas" (No. 57), "Fireworks," featuring Alicia Keys (No. 71) and "Fancy," with T.I. and Swizz Beatz (No. 87). Of his seven charting tracks, all are from his No. 1-debuting album "Thank Me Later," except "9 AM Dallas" which was concurrently released as a digital track.
