That Rihanna reign finally let up. After an impressive 8 week run at #1, the Billboard Hot 100 now finds the ‘We Found Love’ singer slipping to the number 2 spot – surrendering the throne to ‘Sexy And I Know It’ by LMFAO. As the ‘Party Rock Anthem’ performers have logged in quite a few weeks at the runner-up spot, their most recent bid for #1 was undoubtedly assisted by holiday sales. Elsewhere, chart titan Adele is making it rain on ‘em as her latest offering ‘Set Fire To The Rain’ has blasted into the top ten to #7 (last week #13).
Like LMFAO, the songstress got quite the holiday help from fans as the song’s parent album ’21′ moved another 399,000 units this past week despite nearing its year-old mark. The two are presently occupying two spots in the singles’ top ten, with ‘Someone Like You’ and ‘Rain’ at numbers 8 and 7 respectively, while LMFAO are rocking the charts with ‘Party Rock’ and ‘Sexy’ at numbers 9 and 1 respectively.
Rounding out the charts, Katy Perry‘s ‘One That Got Away’ gets one step closer to landing that 6th #1 as it jumps from 5-3 and Big Sean dances into the #10 spot with a little help from Harajuku Barbie Nicki Minaj with ‘Dance (A$$)’.
