Enrique Iglesias' Pants Still On = Stuck At #8 Again

Let's face it—until Enrique Iglesias gives it up and fulfills that promise to water ski in the buff now that Spain won the World Cup, "I Like It" is never gonna move into the upper reaches of the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. This week the single spends a second week at #8. C'mon, Enrique—drop those pants and make the world scream bailamos already!

Alright, on to the real news. Eminem and Rihanna's "Love The Way You Lie" has finally knocked Katy Perry's "California Gurls" off the top of the chart. Both songs are completely saturating radio right now, so it's kind of like choosing between death by firing squad rather than death by having a grenade shoved in your mouth like a ball gag—something Katy Perry is probably really up on.

Further down the Hot 100, Adam Lambert's "If I Had You" inches up to #69. Hey, at least now it's bested the #72 peak of his version of "No Boundaries," right?

Sigh. And as expected, the party couldn't last forever for Kylie Minogue's Aphrodite here in the U.S. without a hit single or some promo appearances to support it. This week the LP drops from its debut position of #19 to #89 on the Top 200 Albums chart.

But on an upbeat note, Kylie's "All The Lovers" is the week's greatest gainer on the Dance/Club Play Songs chart, where it jumps up to #4.

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Love The Way You Lie" - Eminem feat. Rihanna *1 week*
2. "California Gurls" - Katy Perry feat. Snoop Dogg
3. "Airplanes" - B.o.B feat. Hayley Williams
4. "Dynamite" - Taio Cruz
5. "OMG" - Usher feat. will.i.am 
6. "Cooler Than Me" - Mike Posner
7. "Billionaire" - Travie McCoy feat. Bruno Mars
8. "I Like It" - Enrique Iglesias feat. Pitbull
9. "Find Your Love" - Drake
10. "Ridin' Solo" - Jason Derulo

    Um... Um... Err... Kike sounds like a complete idiot!

    Is it me or is his accent almost gone?

    I heard that Eminem trash for the second time yesterday and... did anyone really miss his nasally whiny voice? Blecch.

    I want to kill myself for liking "I Like It" because I vowed to myself I would never enjoy a Pitbull song :(
