Billboard Hot 100, 6th March 2010

1. Imma Be - Black Eyed Peas
2. TiK ToK - Ke$ha

The Black Eyed Peas score their third #1 with "Imma Be" this week, moving 2 spots up to the top spot, ending Ke$ha's 9 week streak at the top with "TiK ToK," which leaves her only one week off tying Debby Boone's 1977 hit "You Light Up My Life" for the most weeks at #1 for a female debut single. The Peas' third #1 makes them the first group or duo in 19 years to score three #1s from one album, the last group to achieve this was female vocal group Wilson Phillips, who topped the Hot 100 in 1990 with "Hold On," "Release Me" and "You're in Love" from their self-titled debut album, unfortunately the girls haven't had a hit since.

3. BedRock - Young Money featuring Lloyd

Young Money and Lloyd's "BedRock" is currently the most song on urban radio, with over 7k spins this week--this probably helped it stay bulleted at #3 this week.

4. Bad Romance - Lady Gaga

Whilst probably out of the race for #1, Lady Gaga still manages to rise up a notch this week with "Bad Romance" after falling to #5 last week. This is the song's 17th week in the top ten. Pretty impressive.

11. Blah Blah Blah - Ke$ha featuring 30H!3

Ke$ha's "Blah Blah Blah" stays bulleted at #11 this week.

13. Baby - Justin Bieber featuring Ludacris

Justin Bieber's "Baby" see's a large digital boost this week, driving the single back up to the better end of the top 20, rising up 6 spots to #13.

14. Telephone - Lady Gaga featuring Beyonce

Lady Gaga & Beyonce's "Telephone" rises up one notch up to #14. It's high-awaited accompanying video is set to debut this weekend.

23. Rude Boy - Rihanna

Already a hit in the UK, Rihanna's latest single "Rude Boy" is set to do the same stateside, as it rises a hefty 24 spots up this week to #23, scoring her 19th top forty single and earning greatest gainer of the week.

100. Up Out My Face - Mariah Carey featuring Nicki Minaj

I normally don't venture past the top 50, but I like Mariah so I thought she deserved a mention. Her latest single "Up Out My Face" debuts at a less than impressive #100 upon it's digital release. This will most likely fall out of the chart next week. Maybe "Angels Cry" with Ne-Yo will fare better.

there are lots of things here i should comment on, but oh my god you mentioned my beloved Wilson Phillips :) I adore them still. And please! They had two more top 30 singles after You're In Love :P

Yes, great idea to call out Wilson Phillips. Hadn't thought about the last time a group's album had 3 #1 hits. I have to agree though that nothing after "You're in Love" was really a hit.
