Britney makes history (while Katy does not)

Britney Spears Bounds Into Hot 100's Top 10, LMFAO Still No. 1



LMFAO spends its fifth week atop the Billboard Hot 100, to be released tomorrow (Aug. 4) on Billboard.com, with "Party Rock Anthem," featuring Lauren Bennett and GoonRock, while Britney Spears scores her third top 10, "I Wanna Go," from her album "Femme Fatale," marking her first-ever set to produce a trio of Hot 100 top 10s. Katy Perry's "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" remains at No. 2.



At No. 9, Spears' "Go" enters the top 10 from No. 11. The cut concurrently reaches the top tier on Radio Songs (13-9; 76 million, up 22%) and rises 9-7 on Digital Songs (116,000, down by less than 1,000 downloads). With the song's Hot 100 advance, Spears has tallied three top 10s from her seventh studio album, "Femme Fatale." Lead single "Hold It Against Me" debuted at No. 1 the week of Jan. 29, and "Til the World Ends" reached No. 3 in May.

Spears had twice previously banked as many as two Hot 100 top 10s from an album. The title cut from "...Baby One More Time" spent two weeks at No. 1 and "(You Drive Me) Crazy" reached No. 10 in 1999. Spears repeated the feat with the first two singles from "Circus"; "Womanizer" topped the Oct. 25, 2008, Hot 100 and the title song rose to No. 3 that December.

"Go" is Spears' 12th Hot 100 top 10 and fifth in-a-row. Her streak began with "3" in 2009 (from "The Singles Collection") and, along with the first three singles from "Femme," includes Rihanna's "S&M," on which Spears guested; the song ruled the April 30 Hot 100.

Dating to Spears' first week in the Hot 100's top 10 (Dec. 12, 1998), she trails only Rihanna (18) and Beyonce (14) for most top 10s among women.

At No. 2 on the Hot 100, Katy Perry continues her quest for an historical No. 1, as "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" maintains its rank from last week with Airplay Gainer honors for the fifth time in six weeks. On Radio Songs, "Friday" lifts 3-2. At 144 million (up 11%), the song is just 2 million behind LMFAO's "Party." The track slips 2-3 on Digital Songs, however (151,000, down 8%), leaving it 51,000 downloads off the pace of "Party."

Katy Perry Notches Record 5th No. 1 on Pop Chart

As previously reported, should "Friday" reach the Hot 100 summit, Perry would collect a fifth No. 1 from her album "Teenage Dream," following "California Gurls," featuring Snoop Dogg, the title cut, "Firework" and "E.T.," featuring Kanye West. In the Hot 100's 53-year history, only Michael Jackson's "Bad" (1987-88) has generated five No. 1 singles.
