Jason DeRulo, Lady GaGa And Taylor Swift Have A Big Sexy Threesome On The Chart

Jason DeRulo's "Whatcha Say" has now become the third #1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 for sample-happy producer J.R. Rotem, following Rihanna's "SOS" in 2006 and Sean Kingston's "Beautiful Girls" in 2007.

It's also now the fifth week in a row where a different song has been at the top of the chart (factoring in two non-consecutive weeks for Jay Sean's "Down") since the 14-week stretch of The Black Eyed Peas' "I Gotta Feeling" ended

Meanwhile, Taylor Swift has set a Billboard Hot 100 record by debuting five songs from her Platinum Edition re-release of Fearless in the Top 30, led by "Jump Then Fall" at #10. Interrupt that, Kanye West.

Just above Taylor—or, rather, on top of Taylor with a bowl of strawberries, a whip and a mind full of leather-clad thoughts—is Lady GaGa, who debuts at #9 with "Bad Romance." This now gives the pint-sized disco hooker her fifth Top 10 single of the year. "Paparazzi" is at #6 for a third week.

Also stuck in place is Chris Brown's "I Can Transform Ya," at #24. Scandal aside, I really hope that trash continues its flop streak. It's just kind of run-of-the-mill material from him.

Here's the album cover for Brown's upcoming third album, Graffiti:

Edgy. Elsewhere, Rihanna's "Russian Roulette" moves up from #100 to #75. Expect that dismal dirge to lumber into the Top 10 next week, following its first week of digital availability.

FLOP WATCH: After only three weeks on the chart for each, Usher's "Papers" dropps from #31 to #41, and John Mayer sinks from #44 to #68 with his stoner track "Who Says." Oh, and Adam Lambert's "Time For Miracles" has flizz-opped off the Hot 100 entirely after one week at #50.

1. "Whatcha Say" - Jason DeRulo *1 week*

3. "Empire State Of Mind" - Jay-Z feat. Alica Keys

    well time for miracles was hardly amazing was it? I'm sure there is much better coming for Mr L though hopefully it's not too late!

    I'm sad Owl City aren't number one anymore :/
