Billboard Hot 100, 5 February, 2011


1. Grenade - Bruno Mars

Bruno Mars dethrones Britney Spears' "Hold it Against Me," returning back to the pinnacle with "Grenade." It's the second time it's returned to #1; being knocked off the top spot by Katy Perry's "Firework" two weeks ago and then again by Britney last week. It's also the first song to return to #1 more than twice since T.I.'s "Live Your Life" featuring Rihanna in the fall of 2008. "Grenade" sold a pretty healthy 204k this week.

3. Black and Yellow - Wiz Khlalifa
4. Tonight (I'm Lovn' You) - Enrique Iglasias feat. Ludacris

Rapper Wiz Khalifia and Enrique's new singles could be a strong contenders for #1, as they both ascend into the top 5 this week scoring the Spanish singer his 5th feat and the rapper his first. If Enrique does top the chart it'll be his first to do so since 2000's "Be with You."

6. Hold it Against Me - Britney Spears

After a massive #1 debut last week, Britney Spears' "Hold it Against Me" tumbles down to #6 from #1. I wouldn't worry though, apart from the fact that it's gaining heavily on Pop, Rhythmic and Hot AC radio--it's already at #11 on Radio Songs--the last time a song debuted at #1 and stayed there for more than a week as in 1998; Lauryn Hill's "Doo Wop (That Thing)," and also the video has yet to debut, as well as promotion has yet to kick in--so there is a great chance this could return to #1 in the oncoming weeks.

10. Hey Baby (Drop it to the Floor) - Pitbull feat. T-Pain

Cuban rapper Pitbull soars into the top 10 with "Hey Baby (Drop it to the Floor)" the lead single off his fifth album Planet Pit (sounds like a weird armpit fetish) scoring the rapper his third top 10 single.

11. Fuckin' Perfect - P!nk

With the controversial video out for P!nk's new single "Fuckin' Perfect," the single charges up 19 spots up to #11. It's currently #1 on iTunes therefore should definitely see a large increase next week too, possibly a top 3.

13. Coming Home - Diddy - Dirty Money

Diddy - Dirty Money's "Coming Home" climbs 6 spots up to #13.

37. Moment 4 Life - Nicki Minaj feat. Drake

I'm glad this is becoming a hit for rapper Nicki Minaj. "Moment 4 Life" her third single from her debut album Pink Friday, enters the top 40 at #37, scoring the rapper her fourth solo top 40.

Paul: What do you think of the video? Pretty hard-hitting--the version that isn't heavily editied on the TV.

Adh: Thank you! I based on the Spin Magazine website.
