Billboard Hot 100, 15 October 2011

1. Someone Like You - Adele

Adele's "Someone Like You" displaces Maroon 5/Christina Aguilera's "Moves Like Jagger" to #2 ending its four week reign at the pinnacle, climbing a notch back up to #1, continuing a second non-consecutive week. It's the longest consecutive gap for a former #1 returning to back to the top this year, Katy Perry's "Firework" and "E.T." and Bruno Mars' "Grenade" all had 1 week absenses away from the top spot before returning to #1.

4. Stereo Hearts- Gym Class Heroes Featuring Adam Levine
6. Sexy and I Know It - LMFAO

Gym Class Heroes climbs a notch to #4, furthering into the top 5. I hope it stands a chance for #1. It's an awesome song, whereas I hope LMFAO's latest "party anthem" "Sexy and I Know It" doesn't. It climbs 4 spots up to #6.

7. Strange Clouds - B.o.B. Featuring Lil Wayne

Debuting at #7 is American rapper B.o.B's "Strange Clouds" the lead single from his forthcoming sophomore album of the same name. It's the rapper's fourth top 10 following his debut smash "Nothin' On You" featuring Bruno Mars, "Airplanes" featuring Hayley Williams of Paramore and "Magic" featuring Cumo Rivers. It's Lil Wayne's 17th top 10, including features.

8. Without You - David Guetta Featuring Usher

French DJ climbs 3 spots into the top 10, hitting #8 with latest single "Without You" and scoring his third top 10. This is Usher's 18th.

9. We Found Love - Rihanna Featuring Calvin Harris

Barbadian singer Rihanna climbs 7 spots up to #9 with her new single "We Found Love" featuring British producer/singer Calvin Harris, the lead single from her forthcoming sixth album Talk that Talk, scoring her 20th top 10 single. This makes her the fastest solo artist to accumulate 20 top 10 singles on the Hot 100, toppling The Supremes. According to Billboard only The Beatles have scored 20 top 10's more quickly. She is also the fifth female singer to have scored 20 (or more) top 10 hits, following Madonna (37) Mariah Carey and Janet Jackson (27 each) and Whitney Houston (23). "Love" is also this weeks airplay gainer.

19. It Girl - Jason DeRulo

Jason DeRulo's latest single "It Girl" seems like a little bit of a slow burner in the States. It enters the top 20 in its eighth week. It's his fifth top 20 single.
