Billboard Hot 100, October 23, 2010

1. Just the Way You Are - Bruno Mars

It's four weeks at #1 with "Just the Way You Are," for Bruno Mars. Its stay at the pinnacle is aided by its 2-1 rise on Billboard's Radio Songs tally with 140 million listener impressions, up 9% from last week according to Billboard.

3. Just a Dream - Nelly

Rapper Nelly moves up a notch with "Just a Dream." His ninth top 3 single.

6. Rihanna - Only Girl (In the World)

Barbadian singer Rihanna may have had a sales dip over the last couple weeks for her new single "Only Girl (In the World)" however she rebounds 8-6 with the help of airplay--she's this week Airplay Gainer.

8. Speak Now - Taylor Swift

Pop/Country singer Taylor Swift debuts at #8 with "Speak Now," the title track from her forthcoming sophomore release this month, it's her third top 10 debut this year and her sixth top 10 debut overall. This feat eclipses Mariah Carey's five top 10 debuts between 1995 and 1998.

Mariah Carey's top 10 debuts:

"Fantasy," "One Sweet Day," "Always Be My Baby," "Honey," "My All."

Taylor Swift's top 10 debuts:

"Change," "Fearless," "Jump then Fall," "Today Was a Fairy Tale," "Mine," "Speak Now."

12. Runaway - Kanye West feat. Pusha T

Kanye West's forthcoming fifth album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, hasn't got off to best of starts. Lead single "Power" missed the top 20 by only 1 spots, whilst follow-up "Runaway," has down considerably better but still missed the top 10 by 1 spot also. I would be more optimistic for an ascend into the top 10 next week, if the single hadn't plummeted to the lower rank of the top 20 on iTunes this week.

18. Forget You! - Cee Lo Green

Whilst already a chart topper in the UK, Cee Lo Green is only just scoring his first solo top 20 in the US with the censored version of "Forget You!"

27. If I Die Young - The Band Perry

American country band score their first top 40 single with "If I Die Young," surging 18 spots up the chart this week.

34. Check It Out - Will.i.am feat. Nicki Minaj

One fourth of The Black Eyed Peas, Will.i.am scores his first solo top 40 ("Check It Out") since his debut single in 2007 ("I Got it From My Mama"). This is Nicki Minaj's eighth, including her extensive list of features.

Weren't most of Mariah Carey's top 10 debuts actually #1 debuts? I think "Fantasy" debuted lower (#5 or #6 if I remember right).
