Jay, Kanye and Katy rule the Charts yet again…

In another lackluster week on the pop charts, the titans of rap and the princess of pop held sway at the top of the Albums and Singles lists. On Billboard’s Top 200 Album chart, Jay Z & Kanye West’s Watch the Throne made it two in a row in top ten that included debuts from Blue October and the Eli Young Band… Over on the Hot 100 Singles chart, Katy Perry made it two in a row with “Last Friday Night” her 5th consecutive chart topper from Teenage Dream. She may have some competition in the weeks ahead from fast rising songs by Lil Wayne (“She Will” the big debut of the week), Lady Gaga (“You and I”, the biggest gainer outside the top ten) and Maroon 5 w/Christina Aguilera who make big airplay gains despite slipping a notch to #4. Keep a look out next week to see if Katy hold on. For more on all the Billboard charts, head here and check out the new top tens below.
