NEW YORK -- Rihanna begins a third week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with "Umbrella," which is the chart's greatest gainer at radio. The Def Jam album from which it is drawn, "Good Girl Gone Bad," debuted Wednesday at No. 2 on the Billboard 200. "Umbrella" remains ahead of Shop Boyz's "Party Like a Rockstar," which is No. 2 on the Hot 100 for a third consecutive frame.

The next three slots on the chart remain unchanged over last week, with T-Pain's "Buy a Drank (Shawty Snappin')" at No. 3, Fergie's "Big Girls Don't Cry" at No. 4 and Maroon5's "Makes Me Wonder" at No. 5. After leaping from No. 27 to No. 16 last week, Plain White T's soar to No. 6 with "Hey There Delilah," while Avril Lavigne's "Girlfriend" slides from sixth to seventh.

Justin Timberlake's "Summer Love" remains at No. 8, while Huey's "Pop, Lock & Drop It" hold at No. 9. Amy Winehouse's "Rehab" rockets 48-10 to round out the top tier thanks to a 160% digital sales spike (78,000 downloads). The British vocalist performed the song on the June 3 MTV Movie Awards. Winehouse also re-enters the chart with "You Know I'm No Good" featuring Ghostface Killah at No. 78.

At No. 12, Lil Mama's "Lip Gloss" becomes just the third top 20 re-entry on the Hot 100 this decade. The song was previously available as a Verizon exclusive and moved 74,000 downloads upon wide release. It had spent one week at No. 95 on the Hot 100 earlier this month.

The chart's top debut is Hannah Montana's "Nobody's Perfect" at No. 28. Also new are Rihanna's "Shut Up and Drive" at No. 88, Rodney Atkins' "These Are My People" at No. 94, Hurricane Chris' "A Bay Bay" at No. 95, Finger Eleven's "Paralyzer" at No. 97 and Kellie Pickler's "I Wonder" at No. 100.

"Buy a Drank" continues to dominate Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, where it is No. 1 for a seventh week. "Umbrella" climbs from No. 10 to No. 8 and is the chart's greatest sales and airplay gainer. Elsewhere, crooner Carl Thomas has the top debut at No. 71 with "2 Pieces," the first appearance on this chart in three years for the former Bad Boy artist.

On Hot Country Songs, Tracy Lawrence's "Find Out Who Your Friends Are" assumes the No. 1 position after the longest climb to the top (41 weeks) in the 17-year history of Nielsen Broadcast Data Systems. It's Lawrence's first No. 1 on this chart since "Time Marches On" in June 1996.

Enrique Iglesias' "Dimelo" is No. 1 for a fourth week on Hot Latin Songs, while Linkin Park remains unbeatable on Billboard's rock charts. The group's "What I've Done" is now in a 10th week at No. 1 on Modern Rock and seventh atop Mainstream Rock.
