US Chart Roundup: Will Lady Gaga's "Marry The Night" Miss The Top 10?

Rihanna and Calvin Harris' "We Found Love" racks up a sixth week atop Billboard's Hot 100 chart, and ties with Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" and LMFAO's "Party Rock Anthem" for the second-longest amount of time spent at #1 in 2011 (behind Adele's "Rolling In The Deep," which was #1 for seven weeks).

The only new addition to the Top 10 is Jay-Z and Kanye West's "Ni**as In Paris" (#8), which 1.) sees a boost following their performance on the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, and 2.) could use a melody.

Elsewhere, Lady Gaga's "Marry The Night" jumps up from #59 to #32 in the wake of the video premiere. The song is kind of floundering on iTunes, though. It's currently #34 on the digital store's Top Songs chart. Could this be the first Lady Gaga single to miss the Top 10?

At five single into Born This Way — the most released off any Gaga album to date — perhaps everyone who's going to splash down cash for her music already has the LP.

Adele's third 21 single "Set Fire To The Rain" cracks the Top 40 at #37. Best song on the album, if you want my classy opinion.

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "We Found Love" - Rihanna feat. Calvin Harris *6 weeks*
2. "Sexy And I Know It" - LMFAO
3. "It Will Rain" - Bruno Mars
4. "Moves Like Jagger" - Maroon 5 feat. Christina Aguilera
5. "Good Feeling" - Flo Rida
6. "Someone Like You" - Adele
7. "Without You" - David Guetta feat. Usher
8. "Ni**as In Paris" - Jay-Z & Kanye West
9. "The One That Got Away" - Katy Perry
10. "Stereo Hearts" - Gym Class Heroes feat. Adam Levine

    Adele claims that "Set Fire" is a gay anthem. Hopefully there will be some hands-in-the-air dance remixes because right now, it's more like Slovenia's National Anthem.

    check out the Plastic Plates remix of it -- it's brilliant and definitely doesn't sound like it's from Slovenia haha

    Marry The Night won't see top-10 unless it sees the release of remixes. Then her monsters will feel the need to grab it.
