The Hot 100 blends all-genre U.S. streaming, radio airplay and digital sales data and, along with all charts, will update on tomorrow (Feb. 12). 

“Girls” charges 22-6 on the Digital Song Sales chart, up 123 percent to 19,000 downloads sold in the week ending February 7, according to Nielsen Music. It also pushes 24-21 on Streaming Songs with a 13 percent boost to 20.5 million U.S. streams in the same tracking week. It keeps at No. 6 on Radio Songs (77.8 million audience impressions, down 2 percent, in the week ending Feb. 10), which it led for 16 weeks.

Maroon 5 had previously spent a high of 21 weeks in the top 10 with three hits: “Sugar” (2015), “One More Night” (2012-13) and “Moves Like Jagger,” featuring Christina Aguilera (2011).

Mars’ “Locked Out of Heaven” Makes Billboard History…

Bruno Mars has notched another first on the Billboard charts…

The 27-year-old part-Puerto Rican singer’s “Locked Out of Heaven” remains at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 for a third week, and  crowns the Radio Songs chart for the first time.

Since Mars occupies the top spot on the Digital and On-Demand Songs charts, the song becomes the first to top all four tallies at the same time, dating back to the launch of the On-Demand chart’s launch in late March.

As “Locked Out of Heaven” earns the honor of being the first title to rank No. 1 on the Hot 100, Radio Songs, Digital Songs and On-Demand Songs at the same time, it’s the first track to crown the more established Hot 100, Radio Songs and Digital Songs charts simultaneously since Rihanna‘s “We Found Love,” featuring Calvin Harris, the week of December 3, 2011. Maroon 5‘s “Moves Like Jagger,” featuring Christina Aguilera (two weeks), Adele‘s “Rolling in the Deep” (three) and Katy Perry‘s “E.T.,” featuring Kanye West, also scored such a hat trick last year.

But “Lock Out of Heaven” is the first song by a male solo artist to lead the Hot 100, Radio Songs and Digital Songs simultaneously since Eminem‘s “Love the Way You Lie,” featuring Rihanna, back during the week of August 28, 2010.

“Heaven” moved up to the top spot on the Radio Songs chart with a 4% increase to 140 million all-format audience impressions (up 4%), according to BDS. The song is Mars’ fourth Radio Songs No. 1, tying him with Sean Paul and T.I. for fifth-place among males in the chart’s 22-year history. Among men, only Usher (seven), Ludacris, West (six each) and 50 Cent (five) boast more. Mariah Carey leads all acts with 11 Radio Songs No. 1s.

Aguilera to Duet with Fellow Voice Judge Cee Lo Green

She’s already collaborated with one of her fellow The Voice judgesAnd, lovingly picked on another… And, now Christina Aguilera is preparing to hit the studio with the last man standing…

Apparently following in the spirit of making people “move,” the title of the track is “Make the World Move,” according to Aguilera.

“I’m excited about recording with Cee Lo,” gushed the Grammy-winning singer about the project. “The song is called ‘Make the World Move’ and it’s fun, positive and full of life.”

“The two of us together joining forces is going to be huge,” added Aguilera. “I’m just excited to share the stage with Cee Lo because we both get off on production and dancers and having all fun elements about being on stage and being a performer.”

No word yet on when the single will be released.

Lopez Illuminates at the American Music Awards

On a high-octane night that showcased the star power of Latino artists, Jennifer Lopez shined brighter than the rest at the 39th Annual American Music Awards.

Jennifer Lopez American Music Awards 2011

In a performance that showed the 42-year-old Puerto Rican-American singer/actress pull away not one, but two layers of her outfit to reveal a barely there, sheer body suit, Lopez stole the show with a medley of her inescapable hits “Papi” and “On the Floor.”

She even started that sizzling performance by psyching out the audience with a faked emotional breakdown while singing the beginning “Until It Beats No More,” similar to the one she reportedly experienced earlier this fall while performing in New Jersey.

A short time after her show-stopping performance, Lopez returned to the stage to accept the award for favorite artist in the Latin music category and reflect on her “amazing” year.

“It’s been up and down and just exciting and overwhelming and so many things,” exclaimed a surprised Lopez, before breaking out the Spanish to thank her Latin-American fans. “Mi gente Latina, por so apoyo siempre, por todo su amor, por todo. Gracias! I love you!”

But Lopez wasn’t done rockin’ the AMA stage! She returned one last time to perform with on his new solo song “T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever).” For the Black Eyed Peas member, debuting a solo song at the American Music Awards with a ponytailed Lopez in a blacklight-inspired performance is extra special.

“I collaborate in the Peas all the time, but this is the first time I’ve ever done big collaborations with big-name artists on my solo projects,” he told Rolling Stone before the show. “So it means a lot that J. Lo’s even considered performing with me, that’s dope. She’s great.”

Bruno Mars was the night’s only other Latino winner. He took home the award for favorite pop/rock male artist.

Meanwhile, Pitbull and Marc Anthony performed their hit song “Rain Over Me;” Enrique Iglesias performed a mash-up of his new single “I Like How It Feels” with the PG-version of “Tonight I’m Lovin’ You;” and Christina Aguilera joined Maroon 5 to perform “Moves Like Jagger.”
