Leona Lewis keeps 'Love' in top spot

Fifth nonconsecutive week at No. 1 on Hot 100

NEW YORK -- Leona Lewis' "Bleeding Love" keeps the lead on the Billboard Hot 100 as the track holds tight at No. 1 for a fifth nonconsecutive week. This week's biggest airplay gainer, Lil Wayne's "Lollipop" featuring Static Major, follows suit, gripping No. 2 for second week. Jordin Sparks' "No Air" featuring Chris Brown stays at No. 3 for a third.

Usher's "Love in This Club" featuring Young Jeezy climbs a notch from fifth to fourth as Ray J & Yung Berg's "Sexy Can I" ascends from No. 6 to No. 5. Madonna, this week's Billboard 200 chart-topper, sees single "4 Minutes" featuring Justin Timberlake slip from No. 4 to No. 6 as Mariah Carey's "Touch My Body" keeps the No. 7 spot warm for a second week.

Natasha Bedingfield scores her second Hot 100 top 10 ink as "Pocketful of Sunshine" zooms up from No. 19 to No. 8. The British singer performed the track on last week's "American Idol," causing a 110% jump in digital sales to make the track this week's biggest digital sales gainer.

Meanwhile, Sara Bareilles' "Love Song" falls from No. 8 to No. 9 as Jesse McCartney's "Leavin'" scores a new peak moving from No. 14 to No. 10, his first top 10 as an artist. However, you can see McCartney's name in association with Lewis' "Bleeding Love," as a co-writer of that single.

Madonna's next single "Give It 2 Me," produced by the diva and the Neptunes, is this week's hotshot debut, entering at No. 57. Busta Rhymes' and Linkin Park's rap/rock hybrid "We Made It" starts at No. 65; the track is the first single off the rapper's forthcoming "I'm Blessed," due June 17.
