Billboard Hot 100, 23/05/09

1. Boom Boom Pow - Black Eyed Peas

Black Eyed Peas just manage to cram in another week at #1 with "Boom Boom Pow," this will probably their last week atop the chart as new releases from Glee Cast and Linkin Part begin to dominate the digital charts.

4. I Know You Want Me - Pitbull

Rapper, Pitbull scores his first top 5 single with "I Know You Want Me," the second single from his 5th album Rebelution. I haven't heard of him before, but prior to this his highest charting single on the chart was 2008s "Krazy," which managed to score his third top 40 single, peaking at #30, following ("Culo" and "The Anthem").

9. Birthday Sex - Jeremih

Despite how much I like this song, I'm wondering why it's receiving so much interest, therefore forcing its way into the top 10, scoring the singers' first feat.

13. Waking Up In Vegas - Katy Perry

Katy Perry could have another hit on hands. "Waking Up In Vegas," rises into the top 20, earning the sales gainer award, giving the singer her 3rd top 20, making up for the underperformance of the previos single "Thinkin' Of You," which stalled outside the top 20, peaking at #9. I'm sure "Vegas," will land in the top 10 next week.

14. Knock You Down - Keri Hilson Featuring Kanye West & Ne-Yo

Another song that could land in the top 10 is Keri Hilson's latest, "Knock You Down" which brings in the vocal skills of Kanye West and Ne-Yo. If this should occur it would be the singers' first feat.

17. Beautiful - Eminem

After praising this single in my review of Eminems new album Relapse, this week "Beutiful," --the best song on the album-- makes a debut inside the top 20, at #17, giving the rapper his 14th top 20.

18. Fire Burning - Sean Kingston

I've yet to hear this. Sean Kingston scores his 4th top 20 with his new single, "Fire Burning" the lead single from his upcoming sophomore album titled Tomorrow. After the success of his debut, "Beautiful Girls," I've always thought Kingston was a bit of a one-hit-wonder, but this could be the single that proves me wrong.

23. I Do Not Hook Up - Kelly Clarkson

Kelly Clarkson's second release from her latest album All I Ever Wanted, "I Do Not Hook Up," continues to take baby-steps up the chart, rising a good 3 notches up this week.

27. LoveGame - Lady GaGa
28. Know Your Enemy - Green Day

Lady GaGa scores her 3rd top 40 with "LoveGame," rising a solid 34 spots, up to #27 this week. Green Day also achieve the same feat with "Know Your Enemy," which rises 13 notches to #28, scoring the bands 3rd top 30 single, following ("Boulevard of Broken Dreams" and "When September Ends," which peaked at #2 and #6 respectively"). The rise of the single is probably fueled by the release of their eighth studio album, 21st Century Breakdown which tops the Billboard 200 this week.

32. Battlefield - Jordin Sparks

I've also yet to here this. Jordin Sparks' "Battlefield," is supposedly taking as the lead single from her forthcoming sohpomore effort. It's debut inside the top 40 is probably supported by her performance of the song on American Idol this week. This is her 5th top 40.

40. Please Don't Leave Me - Pink

Pink scores her 13th top 40 with, "Please Don't Leave Me." This is indeed a slow riser.

You should check out Battlefield--It's good. Fire Burning is pretty good too. FYI--Holiday was also a top 30 hit for Green Day.
