U.S. Chart Roundup: Lady Gaga Redeems Herself After "Judas" With "The Edge Of Glory"

It's a second week for Adele's "Rolling In The Deep" at the top of the Billboard Hot 100, and an eighth week at #1 for her sophomore album 21 on the Top 200 chart. Not only is 21 the only album to cross the million mark as far as copies of an LP sold this year, it's also getting closer to 2 million (right now it stands at 1.7 million since its late February release).

Elsewhere, Lady Gaga's "Judas" looks to be officially dead in the water. The song drops from #19 to #27 on this week's chart, while previous single  "Born This Way" slides still hangs in the Top 20 at #19. Of course, the good news is that "The Edge Of Glory" debuts at #3 and becomes her eighth single to crack the Top 5. Only "Paparazzi" (#6) and "Judas" (#10) charted lower.

And let's face it — while I liked "Judas" at first, it's kind of a dud when compared to some of the hotter tracks from Born This Way (like "Marry The Night" and "Electric Chapel"). That broad needs to step away from the bong and start making better single choices.

Enrique Iglesias' new single "Dirty Dancer" debuts one notch above "Born This Way," at #18 (credit his performance on last week's American Idol results show).

Meanwhile, the True Talent From Destiny's Child Kelly Rowland cracks the Top 30 with her Lil Wayne-assisted single "Motivation." It's at #26, while Beyonce's "Run The World (Girls)" continues its disastrous plummet, this week from #65 to #76.

Jordin Sparks also performed on Idol last week, and her new single "I Am Woman" debuts at #82. Enjoy it, darlin', because it's pretty much off to the stripper pole in Victorville once you're dropped from the label by Christmas.

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Rolling In The Deep" - Adele *2 weeks*
2. "E.T." - Katy Perry feat. Kanye West
3. "The Edge Of Glory" - Lady Gaga *new*
4. "Give Me Everything" - Pitbull feat. Ne-Yo, AfroJack & Nayer

    The Edge of Glory is a great song! I'm glad to see it chart so high! Also, Kelly keeps winning with "Motivation"! I'm ecstatic! Hopefully it will help move her album along! I want it to come out by at LEAST September! It should be earlier though! It's quite obvious that "Motivation" is 100x better than Beyonce's song! Beyonce should know not to release such GARBAGE.

    Lady GG seemed to have a bit of a renaissance with her songs last week in the UK charts so we'll see if that continues! I'm thinking that even the video won't save that plopper of a Beyonce single. What was she thinking or is it hard to think logically with Jay-Z's cock down your throat?!
