“We Found Love” continues it’s reign atop Billboard Hot 100

This week on the Billboard Hot 100, “We Found Love,” featuring Calvin Harris, spends a seventh week at No. 1, tying with “Umbrella” and “Love the way you lie” for the longest rule atop the chart for Rihanna.

She had previously led for seven frames with “Umbrella,” featuring Jay-Z, in 2007 and as a guest on Eminem’s “Love the Way You Lie” last year.

“Found” equals Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” – the year’s No. 1 Hot 100 song – for the chart’s longest rule this year.  “Found” extends its stay in the Hot 100′s penthouse by spending a fourth week at No. 1 on Radio Songs with 146 million all-format audience impressions (up 2%), according to Nielsen BDS. On the Digital Songs chart, the track holds at No. 2 for a third frame, after five frames at No. 1, with 149,000 downloads sold (down 9%), according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Below Rihanna’s Hot 100 leader, LMFAO’s “Sexy and I Know It” logs a sixth week at No. 2. The cut rebounds 3-1 on Digital Songs, although with a 5% decrease to 149,000 downloads sold, while holding at No. 2 on Radio Songs (110 million, down 1%). While it still could command the Hot 100 in coming weeks, “Sexy” has spent the most time peaking at No. 2 since Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance” (seven weeks, 2009-10).

Bruno Mars’ “It Will Rain” remains at No. 3 on the Hot 100 for a third week, claiming Airplay Gainer honors for a second consecutive week as it surges 8-4 on Radio Songs (96 million, up 21%). On Digital Songs, “Rain” falls 1-4 (129,000, down 22%).

As previously reported, Katy Perry’s “The One That Got Away” vaults 9-4 on the Hot 100 to become the sixth top five hit from her album “Teenage Dream,” an achievement previously belonging only to Janet Jackson’s “Rhythm Nation 1814″ (1989-91) and George Michael’s “Faith” (1987-88).
