Billboard Hot 100, 16/05/09

1. Black Eyed Peas - Boom Boom Pow

Black Eyed Peas nab another week at #1 with "Boom Boom Pow" aggrandizing their run to 6 weeks. I hope the success their having in the U.S. transfers swiftly into the UK.

2. Lady GaGa - Poker Face

After 21 weeks on the chart, Lady GaGa's "Poker Face" still remains inside the top 3, only have 1 week stint at #1 -- honestly I expected its #1 run to be dramatically longer.

5. Beyonce - Halo

Beyonce's current single "Halo" gives the singer her 11th top 5 single this week, soaring 8-5. Essentially this is the perfect storm that could conjur up another #1 single for her --the single is currently selling by the bucket loads, digitally and is doing well at top 40 radio.

8. 30H!3 - Don't Trust Me
13. Jeremih - Birthday Sex

Haven't heard this single yet, but will definately look into doing so. There was a lot of hype surrounding the latter last week, about its rise into the top 10, this week it continues to rise by the minority. Jeremih's "Birthday Sex" is another I have yet to hear, I hear it's one of those bump 'n' grind songs --my friend described it to me as a 90s inspired R. Kelly-oriented offering, this week it rises a hefty 10 notches, scoring the newcomer's first top 20 single.

15. Dauhgtry - No Surprise

American rock band, Daughtry debut at #15 with their new single "No Surprise" fueled by heavy digital sales, essentially becoming the bands highest debut on the chart.

17. Keri Hilson Featuring Kanye West - Knock You Down

After 7 weeks on the chart, Keri Hilson's "Knock You Down" enters the top 20 at #17, becoming the singers second highest charting single --behind "Turnin' Me On" (with Lil' Wayne) which peaked at #15 fall of last year.

20. Soulja Boy - Turn My Swag On

Soulja Boy enters the top 20 with is... latest 'effort'... "Turn My Swag On." His debut "Crank That" was good, but since then he hasn't been able to follow it up with anything decent.
