Coldplay holds on to #1 for a 6th consecutive week with their hit "Paradise". The single is the 2nd off their albumMylo Xyloto, which I recently purchased and found to be very good. The album also contains their 3rd single, "Princess of China", featuring Rihanna. That track makes its debut this week at #20. So Coldplay and Rihanna have two songs in the top 20.

The other artist with 2 songs on the top 20 is Foster the People who's comeback hit "Pumped Up Kicks" rises to #7 this week from #8. "Pumped Up Kicks" spent several weeks on the chart earlier this year, peaked at #2 for a few weeks, and then dropped off. Five weeks ago it re-entered the chart and has worked its way steadily up. Also on the chart moving up from #17 to #15 is their track "Don't Stop (Color on the Walls)". That song was used recently in a Nissan car commercial... hence its new found popularity.

Rihanna is holding steady at #3 for another week with her smash hit "We Found Love". Holding at #2 for another week is Zee Avi and "The Book of Morris Johnson". Will any of these songs climb higher and into the #1 spot? Time will tell.

Big movers this week include Matt Cardle who's debut single "Run For Your Life" jumps from #9 to #5 this week.

The biggest gainer of the week is by Bruno Mars. His latest track "It Will Rain" bolts 10 points up from its debut of last week at #19 to #9 this week. Could be a real biggie for Hawaii born and raised Mars.

Two debut tracks this week include "Marry the Night" by Lady GaGa at #17 and the previously mentioned "Princess of China" by Coldplay and Rihanna at #20.

Dropoffs from the chart this week were "You And I" by Lady GaGa and "Not Over You" by Gavin DeGraw.
