U.S. Chart Roundup: Rihanna And Calvin Harris Debut At The Dreaded #16

Rihanna and Calvin Harris' "We Found Love" debuts at #16 on Billboard's Hot 100 this week, giving the latter his first entry on the chart. The song was released last Thursday, and so only its sales up to Sunday factored into its position.

Meanwhile, Coldplay's "Paradise," which debuted at #16 last week, is now down to #33. And going back two weeks, Kelly Clarkson's "Mr. Know It All" made its chart entry at #16. Last week the lead single off Stronger dropped to #35, and now it's at #38.

Guess it remains to be seen if Rihanna and Calvin will suffer the same drop the others did, but so far it's looking unlikely. "We Found Love" is hanging in there at #5 on iTunes currently.

Just below RiRi and Calvin, Dev is up one to #17 with "In The Dark," while Alexandra Stan is lodged at #29 for another week with "Mr. Saxobeat."

That Romanian hooker needs to get over here and step it up with the promotion, because that song is totally my jam, and it needs to crush some of this other garbage clogging up the charts at the moment.

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Moves Like Jagger" - Maroon 5 feat. Christina Aguilera *4 weeks*
2. "Someone Like You" - Adele
3. "Pumped Up Kicks" - Foster The People
4. "Party Rock Anthem" - LMFAO/Lauren Bennett/GoonRock
5. "Stereo Hearts" - Gym Class Heroes feat. Adam Levine
6. "Lighters" - Bad Meets Evil feat. Bruno Mars
7. "Cheers (Drink To That)" - Rihanna
8. "You And I" - Lady Gaga
9. "You Make Me Feel..." - Cobra Starship feat. Sabi
10. "Sexy And I Know It" - LMFAO

    The only problem with the analysis is "Mr. Know It All" debuted at #18.
