Chart Watch: Jay-Z and Alicia Keys Hold Off Lady Gaga

Jay-Z and Alicia Keys hold onto No. 1 for a third week, holding back Lady Gaga who's "Bad Romance" sits at No. 2 for a second week. "Tik Tok" by Ke$ha moves to No. 3.

Lady Gaga is the week's digital sales leader, but she's lagging incredibly with radio airplay which is keeping her at bay behind "Empire State of Mind". "Bad Romance" is currently only the 19th most played song on American radio stations. That's up from last week's position of 24th, but she's going to have to shift a lot more downloads to make up for that gap if she wants her third No. 1.

Lady Gaga is doing a lot better on the radio with her previous single, "Paparazzi" which is the second most played song on the radio, behind "Empire State of Mind". On the Hot 100, "Paparazzi" sits at No. 11.
