Last week's #1 on the Hot 100 Taio Cruz' Break Your Heart has slipped to #3 and has been replaced by Rihanna's Rude Boy, which has shot straight to #1, this being her first #1 on the Hot 100 from Rated R. As expected, Lady Gaga's video for Telephone helped to push it up the charts, breaking the Top 10 barrier and at #9 this week. Carrie Underwood's Temporary Home continues its steady climb up the Hot 100, rising and peaking at #44 so far. Miley Cyrus' When I Look At You leaps up the Hot 100 to #57 from #81 last week. Avril Lavigne's Alice remains entrenched at #71 for a second week in a row.
On the Billboard 200 albums chart, rapper Ludacris nabs the top spot as his album Battle Of The Sexes debuts right at the top of the charts. Kelly Clarkson's majorly successful second album Breakaway returns to the Billboard 200 albums chart at #169 to clock in its 104th week on the albums chart.
