Bruno Mars’ “Grenade” No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100 This Week


Bruno Mars’ “Grenade” once again passes Katy Perry’s “Firework” to steal the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. However, Perry’s “Firework” only slides to No. 2.

Billboard reports that “Grenade” supplanted “Firework” two weeks ago, only to have Perry’s track reclaim the chart’s lead spot for a fourth cumulative frame on last week’s ranking. It is the first time two songs have alternated holds at No. 1 over four weeks since “Live Your Life” by T.I. featuring Rihanna traded spots with Beyonce’s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)” in December 2008.

Here is the rest of this week’s Billboard Hot 100 top 10:

  • No. 3 – “What’s My Name” by Rihanna ft. Drake
  • No. 4 – “We R Who We R” by Ke$ha
  • No. 5 – “Raise Your Glass” by P!nk
  • No. 6 – “Tonight (I’m Loving You)” By Enrique Iglesias ft. DJ Frank E and Ludacris
  • No. 7 – “Black and Yellow” by Wiz Khalifa
  • No. 8 – “The Time (Dirty Bit)” by the Black Eyed Peas
  • No. 9 – “Just The Way You Are” by Bruno Mars
  • No. 10 – “Only Girl (In The World) – by Rihanna

Noteworthy: “What’s My Name” grabs the airplay gainer for the seventh week in it’s 11 weeks on the chart. Wiz Khalifa’s “Black and Yellow” swapped spots with “The Time” by the Black Eyed Peas.

Expectations: Britney Spears’ new single “Hold It Against Me” is going to give Mars and Perry a run for their money next week as Spears vies for the No. 1 spot. The single was released on radio airwaves Jan. 10 and iTunes Jan. 11. The single is expected to sell more than 400,000 copies.

There were some big changes this week; anything surprise you? Tell me in the comments!

Positive message helps win Nina over – catch her full weekly wrap here!


Guest blogger and HitPredictor member Nina C. reports on the new music finds and what she liked and didn’t like in the jukebox each week at HitPredictor. Many of these songs are still available so make check them out and let us know whether you agree or disagree! And, make sure you check out Nina’s other blog, TwilightNera’s Entertainment Hotspot for other news in the entertainment world!

Let me say to all the members of HitPredictor – Merry Christmas! I hope you’re having a really good holiday season and hopefully you are taking a little time out to do some rating at HitPredictor. One of the better songs in the jukebox this week is “The Show Goes On” by Lupe Fiasco. It was a really positive rap song, a lot of Fiasco’s songs are very positive and that is what makes him a special rapper. “The End” by Kings of Leon is a good rock song and I just love the lead singer’s raspy voice.

“All of the Lights” by Kanye West sounds like a forced effort. Kanye always seems like he is forcing himself to me. Unfortunately, Rihanna did not make this track any better. “Last Wish” by Ray J was a really good and well-written R&B song. “Moment 4 Life” by Nicki Minaj is a good rap song and is one of the highlights of her new album Pink Friday. “Lost in Your Love” by R. Kelly is a pretty good R&B song and for once he does not sound like he is forcing himself. “Cry” by Reba McEntire is a really good country song. The lyrics are really good and I think Reba has one of the best voices in all of country music. I also love Adele’s voice. The song “Rolling in the Deep” is a really good classic type song.

“Hollywood Tonight” is a really good Michael Jackson song, it is classic Michael. I did not care for “Oh Santa” by Mariah Carey. I really like the original All I Want for Christmas but this one is not another Christmas classic for her. All of Enrique Iglesias’s current music is annoying to me and his song “Tonight” is no exception. There were a few other yay’s and nay’s this week I cannot mention but I will try to mention it next week.  Have a Merry Merry Christmas Music Listeners :)
