US Chart Roundup: I'd Pay, Like, Ten Bucks To Watch The Swedish House Mafia Members Sex each Other

Rihanna's "Diamonds" has now spent three weeks atop the Hot 100, matching the length of her run in 2006 with her very first US #1, "SOS." I'm still not sick of that trash yet, and I feel it'll join the ranks of the classic pop jams of this decade when all is said and done. If you don't believe me, then go Barbie Doll leg yourself violently until you do.

Elsewhere, Swedish House Mafia's former British, Australian and, naturally, Swedish #1 single "Don't You Worry Child" edges closer to cracking the Top 20 as it hops up seven positions to #21. For the first time, I heard this trash on the radio today. And if it achieves similar success here in the States that it has overseas — and given the song's Grammy nomination — will the DJ collective put their hiatus on hold?



Whatever. Over on the album chart, Alicia Keys' fifth outing Girl On Fire debuts at #1, bumps Rihanna's Unapologetic down to #6 and still does nothing to interest me in ever listening to this ho.

More interestingly, Christina Aguilera's Lotus plummets to #47 in its third week on the Top 200. Get 'em, gurl!

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Diamonds" - Rihanna *3 weeks*
2. "Locked Out Of Heaven" - Bruno Mars
3. "Die Young" - Ke$ha
4. "One More Night" - Maroon 5
5. "Ho Hey" - The Lumineers
6. "Some Nights" - fun.
7. "Home" - Phillip Phillips
8. "I Cry" - Flo Rida
9. "Let Me Love You" - Ne-Yo
10. "Gangnam Style" - PSY
