Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" finally tops the Billboard Hot 100 this week on its 18th week on the chart thanks to a strong sales and rising airplay (the track is #3 on the airplay chart). Adele's "21" is still on top of the Billboard 200 album so Adele is the first artist since Eminem to top both charts. Eminem did it last year with "Love The Way You Lie" ruling the Hot 100 while the album "Recovery" was on top the chart. I'm personally happy that this song is finally #1, never thought it had a chance since this is not the type of song that usually rules the Hot 100 so I'm ecstatic "Rolling in the Deep" conquered the odds
Lady Antebellum's scores their second top 10 hit as their new song "Just a Kiss" enters the chart at #7 thanks to huge digital sales which got a boost from an American Idol performance last week.
Bruno Mars' "Just The Way You Are" is steady at #33 for a second week and would likely be the longest chart sitter for weeks to come, it's already on its 42nd week on the chart.
At the bottom of the chart is Britney Spears' "Hold It Against Me" and this could likely be the final week of the song on the chart. The song debuted at #1 and might exit the chart at #100, fascinating.
