Image Credit: Karin Catt; Ari MichelsonKaty Perry‘s “California Gurls” reigned at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart for six weeks. But it’s over now. When the entire chart is released tomorrow, Eminem‘s Rihanna-assisted “Love The Way You Lie” will be No. 1 and Perry No. 2. This is the Detroit rapper’s fourth Hot 100 No. 1. single, and the second from his latest, Recovery. His first single from this album, “Not Afraid,” debuted at No. 1. Em’s having an amazing day; this morning we reported that he’s also got the No. 1 album in the country again.

No one new entered the top 10 this week. B.o.B’s “Airplanes” stays at No. 3, Taio Cruz’s “Dynamite” moves from No. 6 to No. 4. Usher’s former No. 1, “OMG,” drops one place to No. 5. Mike Posner’s “Cooler Than Me” moves up one to No. 6. While “Billionaire” by Travie McCoy falls two places to No. 7. “I Like It” by Enrique Iglesias holds at No. 8. Drake’s “Find Your Love” stays at No. 9. And Jason Derulo’s “Ridin’ Solo” remains at No. 10.

What do you think of Eminem’s run? Are you a fan of Recovery and it’s singles? Think Katy can regain her No. 1 spot? Let us know.
