Chart Check: Rihanna Tops, Katy Drops

Review of the refreshed Billboard tally tomorrow will find ‘We Found Love’ back atop the Hot 100 after a brief dethrone by ‘Sexy And I Know It’ duo LMFAO.  For what comes as the 9th non-consecutive week, Rihanna‘s faithful Navy have assisted her float back to rule over the singles chart – helping the songstress notch her longest reign yet on that front.

Elsewhere, gal pal Katy Perry was previously showing unstoppable signs of unseating LMFAO from the top spot, but ‘The One That Got Away’ is looking more like the one that won’t make it to #1 as it drops from 3-6.  Despite an acclaimed remix featuring B.O.B. and discounting the song, the former Mrs. Brand has yet to land her record breaking 6th no. 1 single from parent album ‘Teenage Dream’.

Filling out the rest of the charts, Adele (who is currently number 1 on Billboard’s album tally) continues her double dominance of the top 10 with ‘Set Fire To The Rain’ at no. 4 and ‘Someone Like You’ slipping to number 10.  And, while Jay Z/Kanye West and Flo Rida stay put with ‘Ni**as in Paris’ (#7) and ‘Good Feeling’ (#5) respectively, crooner Bruno Mars moves his ‘It Will Rain’ up to the no. 3 spot.

Chart Check: Adele Rolls In 2012 Atop Billboard Charts

‘Rolling In the Deep’ diva Adele’s ’21’ album is still rolling over competition on both album and single charts despite debuting almost a year ago.   Already crowned 2011’s best selling album and spending 43 of its 44 week shelf-life in Billboard’s top 5, the songstress moved back to #1 after moving an additional 144k albums this week.  Such feat ties her with fellow female powerhouse vocalist Whitney Houston’s 1986 self-titled debut for a 14 week run atop Billboard’s album charts.  The only other female (or female led) albums to know such reign would be ‘The Bodyguard’ soundtrack (20 weeks from 1992-1993) and Carole King‘s ‘Tapestry’ (15 weeks in 1971).

On the singles front, the British beauty is commanding the lower half of the chart’s top 10 with ‘Someone Like You’ and ‘Set Fire To the Rain’ at no.8 and no.9 respectively.  At the chart’s higher end, ‘Party Rock Anthem‘ duo extend their top 10 reign at #1  and #6 respectively with their party favorites ‘Sexy and I Know It’ and ‘Party Rock’.  Filling out the top five, gal pals Rihanna and Katy Perry can be found at #2 and #3 respectively with ‘We Found Love’ and “The One That Got Away”.

Finally, while the ladies have run this motha- for quite sometime, the men are finally getting in on some of the action.  Bruno Mars makes a splash with ‘It Will Rain’ at #4, Flo Rida makes good at #5 with ‘Good Feeling’, and Jay Z/Kanye settle at #7 with ‘Ni**as In Paris’.

Chart Check: Rihanna Surprises While Katy Rises

Still proving that girls really do run this motha-, gal pals Katy Perry and Rihanna‘s reigns on singles charts just won’t let up.  The latter, finding herself atop Billboard Hot 100 for the 7th week with monster hit ‘We Found Love’ and the former getting one step closer to the top with ‘The One That Got Away’ (jumping from 9-4). By no means unfamiliar territory, the Bajan beauty’s previous efforts ‘Umbrella’ and ‘The Way You Lie’ both dominated the Hot 100 for 7 weeks with the help of hip-hop heavyweights Jay Z and Eminem respectively .  However, if Ms. Fenty manages to stay atop the chart for two more weeks she will best herself and tie fellow-talentless mannequin Ke$ha‘s ‘Tik Tok’ for the longest #1 run of the noughties.

And, while Perry’s ascension was undoubtedly assisted by the availability of her single for .69 cent purchase recently, the newly announced forthcoming B.O.B. remix to the song may give it that push it needs to notch her 6th #1 single.  If such happens, she will be the first artist in history to nab 6 #1 singles from one album (presently tying both Michael Jackson‘s 5 #1s and nearing Janet Jackson‘s 7 top ten singles from one album record).

Elsewhere on the singles charts, Adele and Christina/Maroon 5 move into the #7 and #8 spots respectively, Flo Rida‘s ‘Good Feeling’ makes good with #5, ‘Watch the Throne’ co-stars Jay Z and Kanye West watch the #6 spot, and T-Pain‘s ‘5 O’Clock’ crashes in at #10.  The album charts sees jazz crooner Michael Buble reasserting his domination as his holiday set moved an impressive 450-500k after nearly two months of release.  (source)
