Taylor Swift enters the #1 spot this week with her latest single, "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together", up from last week's #2 position. The song took only 3 weeks to get to #1. It debut at #11, moved to #3, moved to #2 and now it's at #1.

However, it looks like Taylor Swift's reign at #1 could be short lived. Hot on the charts this week is K-Pop singerPSY who zooms up the top 20 with his international smash hit "Gangnam Style" from last week's debut position of #19 to #3 this week. Yikes! This is a 16 leap from practically out of nowhere into striking distance of #1. "Gangnam Style" is one of those records that is more than just a hit... it's a phenomenon with a popular made-in-Korea video that has gotten more than 260,000,000 views on YouTube and a slew of knock-off and tribute videos to boot. Just way too many.

Last week I thought Aerosmith had a good possibility of going all the way to the top with "What Could Have Been Love". This week the song moves up another 3 points from #8 to #6, just a two point move compared to last week's 10 point leap from #18 to #8.

Making two point climbs into the top 5 we also find Noisettes at #5 with "That Girl" (up from #7) and Phillip Phillips' hit "Home" up from #6 to #4.

Moving into the top 10 we find Miss Li with "My Heart Goes Boom" up 1 from #11 to #10. The song is a hit only on this chart and seemingly nowhere else. It's got a good video. She is followed by Bahamas' single "Caught Me Thinking" which stays at #9 for a second week in a row.

Several songs drop this week including Owl City's "Good Time", Fun's "Some Nights" and TobyMac's "Me Without You". All are gradually going downhill. No Doubt's "Settle Down" and Carrie Underwood's "Blown Away" are spending their last week on the top 20 this week.

New to the Weekly Top 20 are two songs: "Too Close" by Alex Care debuts at #19 while Matt Cardle's latest single "It's Only Love" comes in at #20.
