Billboard Hot 100, 05/07/08

1. Katy Perry - I Kissed A Girl 

After 7 weeks on the chart Katy Perrys "I Kissed A Girl" ascends to the top spot scoring her first #1. This is the 1000th #1 of the rock-era. This is one of the few songs this year that took a while to grow on me, I've learned to love its torchery electronic sound. Additionally "I Kissed A Girl" also tops the Pop 100, which measures single sales, digital sales and mainstream airplay. 

3. Leona Lewis - Bleeding Love
5. Natasha Bedingfield - Pocketful of Sunshine

After legendary topping the chart a couple weeks back, british sensation Leona Lewis debut single "Bleeding Love" begins to rise up the chart once again after falling out of the top 3 last week. After a staggering 19 weeks on the chart Natasha Bedingfields "Pocketful of Sunshine" ascends into the top 5, scoring her second top 5 after ("Unwritted") peaked at #5 back in 2004.

8. Plies featuring Ne-Yo - Bust It Baby Part II

I'm absolutely in love with this song right now. This week is finally cracks the top 10 --earning Plies his second top 10 after ("Shawty") with T-Pain peaked at #9 last year. 

10. Miley Cyrus - 7 Things

Miley Cyrus "7 Things" jumps a staggering 60 spots up the chart this week, earning this weeks 'greatest gainer' award. The rise is thanks to single release through iTunes last week. "7 Things" scored Miley her second top 10 after ("See You Again") peaked in the same position. The song is currently holding strong at top 40 radio, so it untimely keep rising. 

18. Rihanna - Disturbia 

Rihanna scores her 11th top 40 this week with "Disturbia" which makes a clean debut at #18 this week. The previous single ("Take A Bow") earned yet another Hot 100 #1 for Rihanna, but will "Disturbia" follow in its footsteps? I think so.
