Rihanna cements her rule of pop singles charts by taking over pop radio and knocking David Guetta off the top after only one week. Meanwhile, her new single "You Da One" surges seven notches to #23. Lady Gaga looks well on her way to a fifth top 10 radio hit from Born This Way with "Marry the Night" jumping to #18 this week.
