Billboard Update

British singer Taio Cruz' single Break Your Heart sails straight to the top of the Hot 100, dethroning last week's #1 Imma Be by the Black Eyed Peas, which has slipped to #5. Country group Lady Antebellum's Need You Now moves up yet again, this time to #2. Rihanna's Rude Boy might just have more chart longevity compared to her other singles released from Rated R, which managed to peak in the Top 10 but falling out of the charts in just a matter of weeks. Rude Boy climbs up to #4 this time, proving Rihanna's success isn't just a fluke. Jason DeRulo's In My Head slowly creeps up the Hot 100 peaking at #8 this week. Lady Gaga's Telephone sits just outside the Top 10, but thanks to so much hype and the recent music video premiere, expect Telephone to rebound up the charts. Justin Bieber is frankly, unstoppable. Never Let You Go, the second single from My World 2.0, debuts at #21 on the Hot 100, even before Baby has run out of steam. Thanks to digital downloads, Ridin' Solo, a track from Jason DeRulo's self-titled album debuts at #33 this week. Carrie Underwood's Temporary Home rises and peaks at #48 this week. As Alice In Wonderland storms box offices around the world, the first single from the soundtrack Alice, contributed by Avril Lavigne, arrives on the Hot 100 at #71 this week. Thanks to a promotional boost from performing on American Idol, Danny Gokey's debut single My Best Days Are Ahead Of Me debuts at #82 this week. La Roux' single Bulletproof was a hit #1 single in the UK, but it seems like it has taken a few months for the Americans to like it. Bulletproof makes a debut at #92 this week.

Lady Antebellum's Need You Now returns to #1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, placing Sade's Soldier Of Love into #2. Danny Gokey's debut effort arrives at #4 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, with a decent first week sales of 60, 000+. The soundtrack to Alice In Wonderland arrives at #5 this week along with Jason DeRulo's self-titled debut album at #11.
