Rihanna Topples Katy Perry On Hot 100

Rihanna’s “Disturbia” puts an end to the seven-week run at No. 1 by Katy Perry’s “I Kissed a Girl” on the Billboard Hot 100, rising 3-1 after selling 148,000 downloads, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It’s Rihanna’s fourth chart-topper here, tying her with Beyonce and Mariah Carey for the most by a female artist this decade.

Chris Brown’s “Forever” holds at No. 2, while “I Kissed a Girl” slides to No. 3. Another Rihanna song, “Take a Bow,” remains at No. 4, followed by M.I.A.’s “Paper Planes,” which jumps from No. 16 to a career-best No. 5 as the chart’s top digital gainer. The track, which sold more than 136,000 downloads, appears in the trailer for the new comedy “Pineapple Express.”

Coldplay’s “Viva La Vida” slips 5-6, Kardinal Offishall’s “Dangerous” featuring Akon holds at No. 7 and Lil Wayne’s “A Milli” falls 6-8. Rounding out the top 10, the Jonas Brothers’ ‘Burnin’ Up” rises 11-9, and Ne-Yo’s “Closer” stays at No. 10.

The chart’s top debut comes from another Jonas Brothers song with the title track to their new album, “A Little Bit Longer.” The track starts at No. 11 with 131,000 downloads; the album of the same name is a lock to debut next week at No. 1 on The Billboard 200. Also new is rapper the Game’s “My Life” featuring Lil Wayne at No. 21.

On Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, “A Milli” dethrones Keyshia Cole’s long-running No. 1, “Heaven Sent.” Ludacris’ “What Them Girls Like” featuring Chris Brown and Sean Garrett is the top debut at No. 73.

Meanwhile, Taylor Swift scores her second No. 1 on Hot Country Songs as “Should’ve Said No” rockets 5-1. With the Foo Fighters in charge of the Modern Rock chart for a 4th week with “Let It Die,” Shinedown’s “Devour” ends the 14-week reign of Disturbed’s “Inside the Fire” on Mainstream Rock.
