Billboard Hot 100, October 16, 2010

1. Just the Way You Are - Bruno Mars

Bruno Mars' "Just the Way You Are" clocks in its third week at #1, the years sixth longest run at #1 so far, tying with Usher's "OMG."

2. Like a G6 - Far East Entertainment

Hot on the heels of Mars is Far East Entertainment and their single "Like a 6" which leaps 4 spots up to #2 and could well claim their first chart topper next week (or possibly the week after), they are above Mars in digital sales right now although they have only just broken the top 10 on Mediabase.

4. Just a Dream - Nelly

Rapper Nelly lands his ninth top 5 single with "Just a Dream." The last time a single of his landed in the top 5 on the Hot 100 was 5 years ago with "Grillz," which was also his fourth #1.

16. Glee Cast - Toxic
25. Pramore - The Only Exception
26. Glee Cast - The Only Exception

Following last week's Britney Spears inspired Britney/Brittany episode, Glee land only 2 of the 6 songs released to iTunes debuted in the top 40, "I'm a Slave 4 U," "Stronger," "...Baby One More Time" and "Me Against the Music," debut consecutively outside of the top 50, surprisingly non of which outperformed the peaks original versions, including the most popular of the bunch, "Toxic" which debuts at #16 (only 7 spots behind the #9 peak of the original).

Nine spots lower is the only non-Britney cover, Paramore's "The Only Exception" which debuts at #26 and funnily enough the Paramore's original version charts just one spot higher, charging up 32 spots back up to #25 just one spot short of its #24 peak. Collectively, the songs sold 406,000 downloads. According to Billboard the Glee cast has now charted 75 song entries on the Hot 100, toppling The Beatles 75 chart entries.

17. Gonorrhea - Lil Wayne featuring Drake

As far as gut-churning titles go, rapper Lil' Wayne takes the gold. His new single "Gonorrhea" debuts at #17, his ninth top 20 single. Also this week his eighth album, I Am Not a Human Being debuts at #2 on the Billboard 200 with a 110k haul.

21. Fuck You! - Cee Lo Green

Whilst here in the UK, Cee Lo Green could be scoring his first solo UK #1 this weekend, however in the US it looks like it still taking some time. This week it moves up 6 notches to just outside of the top 20, it's been 6 weeks but I am still convinced this will be a hit--It's currently still rising on Mediabase.
