Chart Watch: Rihanna Holds Down No. 1, Gaga Rises

     Rihanna remains No.1 for a second week with with "Rude Boy".  The song is this week's airplay gainer, with 98.3 million listener impressions, up 16.2 million impressions from the previous week.  This is the fifth consecutive week "Rude Boy" has been the greatest gainer at radio, the longest streak since the Black Eyed Peas had five weeks with the biggest growth in radio for "I Gotta Feeling" last summer.

     Propelled by its epic video, Lady Gaga and Beyonce's "Telephone" moved to No. 3, becoming Gaga's fourth highest peaking hit after her pair on No. 1s - "Just Dance" and "Poker Face", and the No. 2 peaking "Bad Romance".  It makes you wonder how the song would have done without the insane media buzz that followed its video's debut.  The rest of the top ten after the jump.
