‘I Gotta Feeling’ tops chart — again

I Gotta Feeling by the Black Eyed Peas remained ensconced atop the Billboard Hot 100 of U.S. records for the 19th week, tying Usher's record.

If I Gotta Feeling takes Billboard's top spot for singles next week, it would surpass the feat the R&B singer accomplished twice in 2004 with Yeah! and Burn, Billboard said Thursday.

Country singer Taylor Swift's crossover hit, You Belong With Me, moved up from No. 3 to No. 2, bumping Drake's Best I Ever Had to No. 3.

Holding the same positions as last week were Keri Hilson's Knock You Down, featuring Kanye West and Ne-Yo, at No. 4; Kings of Leon's Use Somebody at No. 5; and Jay Sean's Down, featuring Lil Wayne, at No. 6.

Cobra Starship, featuring Leighton Meester, moved up three notches from No. 10 to No. 7. Sean Kingston's Fire Burning fell from No. 7 to No. 8 and Hotel Room Service by Pitbull was at No. 9. The Black Eyed Peas' second top 10 hit, Boom Boom Pow, dropped from No. 8 to No. 10 to round out the top singles.
