Usher leads US singles chart
New York: Usher led Billboard`s Hot 100 singles chart for a third non-consecutive week on Thursday, while Miley Cyrus scored the top debut.
Usher`s "OMG" also reclaimed the No. 1 spot on the Digital Songs tally with 236,000 downloads, according to Nielsen SoundScan, after last topping that list three weeks ago.
Last week`s downloads champ, Katy Perry`s "California Gurls," featuring Snoop Dogg, fell to No. 3 on Digital Songs, and slipped one place to No. 3 on the Hot 100 -- swapping places with "Airplanes" by B.o.B featuring Hayley Williams, which also ranked at No. 2 on Digital Songs.
Taio Cruz`s "Break Your Heart," featuring Ludacris, rose one to No. 4, trading places with another former No. 1, B.o.B`s "Nothin` On You."
Lady Gaga`s "Alejandro" jumped two to No. 6, bypassing Ke$ha`s "Your Love Is My Drug," which held at No. 7.
Cyrus` "Can`t Be Tamed," the title track from her upcoming June 22 album, came in at No. 8. It marks her third top 10 Hot 100 debut under her name, following "Party in the U.S.A." (No. 2, last August) and "The Climb" (No. 6, in March 2009). She also placed a top 10 debut with "He Could Be the One" (No. 10) under the Hannah Montana moniker last July.
Rounding out the top 10 were two former No. 1s, Eminem`s "Not Afraid" (No. 9, down three) and "Rude Boy" by Rihanna (No. 10, down one).
Other new entries included Avenged Sevenfold`s "Nightmare" at No. 51, Muse`s "Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever)" at No. 77, and "WooHoo" from Christina Aguilera featuring Nicki Minaj, at No. 79.
