For the fifth straight week, Katy Perry‘s “California Gurls” tops the chart. Eminem’s “Love the Way You Lie” featuring Rihanna is No. 2 for it’s second week in a row. Usher‘s “OMG” holds the No. 3 spot, while B.o.B’s “Airplanes” does the same at No. 4. And Travie McCoy’s “Billionaire” is No. 5.

The fun starts at No. 6, where newcomer Mike Posner creeps up a spot with “Cooler Than Me.” Taio Cruz’s “Dynamite” leaps seven places to No. 7. Drake’s “Find Your Love” seems to have stalled out, dropping two places to No. 8. Jason Derulo’s “Ridin’ Solo” moves up one to No. 9. And Eminem’s “Not Afraid” closes out the top 10.

Mike Posner is getting close to the top spot. Do you think the Duke grad can rise to No. 1? If not him, then who? Let us know.
