That Lady GaGa reign finally let up! The Pop phenom’s ‘Born This Way’ has been ousted from the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 by a song from none other than Katy Perry.
After an impressive 6 weeks at the #1, ‘Born…’ was knocked out of the chart’s peak position by Perry’s ‘E.T (Ft. Kanye West)’ which clocked 254k downloads and 74 million audience impressions this week. With those figures ‘E.T’ also nabbed top honors on the Digital Songs tally.
This accomplishment means that Perry has a total of 4 #1 songs from her ‘Teenage Dream’ LP, making it the 9th album to achieve this feat to date. She is the 1st female artist to hit the chart summit on as many occasions with a single album since Mariah Carey in 1990-91 with her self-titled debut album.
Other songs making moves on the Hot 100 were Rihanna’s ‘S&M’ which creeped to #2, Cee-Lo’s ‘F*ck You (Forget You)’ which r3bounded to #3 and GaGa’s ‘Born This Way’ which tumbled to #4. Additionally, the Black Eyed Peas’ ‘Just Can’t Get Enough’ remained at #5,
Wiz Khalifa’s ‘No Sleep’ debuted at #6 and P!nk’s ‘F*ckin’ Perfect’ slipped from #7 to #8. Meanwhile, Jennifer Lopez’s ‘On The Floor (Ft. Pitbull)’ re-entered the upper regions of the lineup at #10.
Finally, adding to the success of his #1 album on the Billboard 200, ‘F.A.M.E’, Chris Brown’s ‘Look At Me Now (Ft. Busta Rhymes & Lil Wayne)’ jumped to #7 on the Hot 100 while his collaboration with Justin Bieber, ‘Next 2 You’ entered the chart at #26. On the other hand, there was no sign of Trey Songz.
