Katy Perry Burns Billboard Again!

Katy Perry Firework on BillboardKaty Perry Tops Billboard Again
After ducking out of the way of Bruno Mars' "Grenade" last week, Katy Perry's "Firework" returns to the Billboard Hot 100 summit for a fourth cumulative frame.

Perry's inextinguishable track ranks at No. 2 on both Digital Songs with 398,000 downloads (down 22%), according to Nielsen SoundScan, and on Radio Songs with 124.5 million listener impressions (down 1%), according to Nielsen BDS.

Mars' "Grenade," which drops to No. 2 on the Hot 100, holds atop Digital Songs for a third week with a still-healthy 425,000 downloads (down 24%), the 11th best sales week since SoundScan began tracking digital track sales in 2003. The song's total a week ago (559,000) stands as the third-highest weekly sum.

A week ago, the Christmas holiday bumped up against the end of SoundScan's tracking week (Sunday, Dec. 26) and in turn, the annual mp3 and gift card-sales effect seems to have spilled over into two weeks. Digital sales dip only 4% from a week ago. Last year's week to week dip in the comparable frames was 26%. This week's total is 13% greater than the seven-day period which included New Year's Day 2010.

Back to the Hot 100 top 10, Ke$ha's "We R Who We R" holds at No. 3, while "What's My Name?" by Rihanna featuring Drake and P!nk's "Raise Your Glass" also hold in place at Nos. 4 and 5, respectively. Rihanna's track continues atop the Radio Songs chart for a third week.

Enrique Iglesias' "Tonight (I'm Loving You)," featuring Ludacris & Frank E, reaches a new peak (7-6) and "The Time (Dirty Bit)" by the Black Eyed Peas bounds back up the list from 9-7.

Wiz Khalifa steps down two spots to No. 8 with "Black And Yellow," Bruno Mars inches back up 10-9 with "Just the Way You Are" and Nelly's "Just a Dream" ventures back into the top 10 (12-10).
