Billboard Hot 100, January 7, 2011

1. Sexy and I Know It - LMFAO

After a record-tying 7 week stint at #2, LMFAO's annoyingly infectious "Sexy and I Know It" climbs a notch up to #1, ending Rihanna's impressive 8 week stay at #1 with "We Found Love" featuring Calvin Harris, scoring the duo's second chart topper after "Party Rock Anthem" lead the hot 100 for a 6 week frame earlier this year (which re-bounds 15-9 this week). "Sexy" sold nearly 400k this week, earning it a fourth week atop the digital songs tally. It's this week's digital gainer. This is the first time a duo has scored back to back #1's since American hip-hop paring OutKast sent "The Way You Move" and "Hey Ya!" to the pinnacle back in 2003.

3. The One That Got Away - Katy Perry

In her desperate bid to break Michael Jackson's record of the most #1's spawned by one album, Katy Perry's "The One That Got Away" nabs a new peak, climbing 2 spots up to #3, scoring her eighth top 3 single. It's increase was assisted by the newly issued remix featuring B.o.B. which according to Billboard accounted for 26% of its overall sales.

Personally, I'm tired of singer's issuing quickie remixes for a higher peak. It's annoying and shamelessly desperate. Did B.o.B. really need to be on here?

5. Niggas In Paris - Kanye West & Jay-Z

"Niggas In Paris" climbs a notch to #5, scoring Kanye his 11th top 5 single and Jay-Z his 10th.

7. Set Fire to the Rain - Adele

Adele climbs 5 spots up to #7, scoring the singer her third top 10 single--following previous chart topper's "Rolling In the Deep" and "Someone Like You." It's this week's airplay gainer.

10. Dance (A$$) - Big Sean featuring Nicki Minaj

American rapper Big Sean lands his first top 10 single with "Dance (A$$)" which climbs 2 spots up to #10 this week. This is Nicki Minaj's fifth top 10 single.

19. Mistletoe - Justin Bieber
34. It Girl - Jason DeRulo

Justin Bieber re-bounds 13 spots up to #19 with his Christmas single "Mistletoe," 8 spots short of it's inital #11 peak. Also re-bounding beyond their peak is Jason DeRulo who climbs 17 spots back up to #34, 17 spots short of its inital #17 peak.

35. Rolling In the Deep - Adele

Adele is back up 6 spots with "Rolling In the Deep" but is not bulleted. Strange... or typo.
