Katy Perry holds on to the #1 spot for the 2nd week in a row with "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)." Fact is the top 4 records have not changed position. Following Katy, we find Coldplay at #2 with "Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall," Noah & the Whale at #3 with "Tonight is the Kind of Night", and Lady Gaga at #4 with "The Edge of Glory". New to the top 5 is The Script, who edge into #5 from #6 with "For the First Time".

Colbie Caillat is back in the top 10 with her latest single, "Brighter Than the Sun," up to #9 from #11. It's off her latest album All Of Me.

For the first time in months, Dengue Fever has dropped out of the top 10. Their former #1 record "Cement Slippers" actually slips 4 points, down from #7 to #11 this week. They also have the #14 song with their follow-up called "Uku" up from #17. Both tracks are from the album Cannibal Courtship, one of my favorites of 2011 so far.

Amy Winehouse makes a posthumous debut this week with her 2007 track "Back to Black". It is taken from her 2nd album of the same title. The song appears at #19 this week. The track did not make the chart when first released in 2007. Amy Winehouse had a #1 record on the Weekly Top 20 in 2007 with "Rehab", also from the same album. Amy Winehouse passed away last week at the age of 27. Cause of death is still unknown.

Making her chart debut at #20 is Demi Lovato with her track "Skyscraper".
