"Imma Be," from the act's chart-topping release "The E.N.D.," rose two places to No. 1, ending the nine-week reign of Ke$ha's "TiK ToK," which slipped to No. 2.

Meanwhile, the all-star charity remake of "We Are The World" slid four places to No. 6 in its second week.

The Peas set a record last year with 26 successive weeks at No. 1 when "Boom Boom Pow" (12 weeks) was followed by "I Gotta Feeling" (14 weeks) atop the chart. The Peas' third single from "The E.N.D.," "Meet Me Halfway" peaked at No. 7 in November.

Wilson Phillips was the last group to score three No. 1s from an album, when its self-titled debut spawned "Hold On," "Release Me" and "You're In Love" in 1990-91.

Young Money's "BedRock" (No. 3), Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance" (No. 4) and Lady Antebellum's "Need You Know" (No. 5) each rose one place.

Train's "Hey, Soul Sister" (No. 7), Ludacris' "How Low" (No. 8) and Jason Derulo's "In My Head" (No. 9) were unchanged.

Trey Songz reached the Hot 100 top 10 for the first time with his lucky 13th charting title, "Say Aah," rose two places to No. 10.

The Disney Channel movie premiere of "Starstruck" on February 14 prompted three debuts, thanks to resulting download sales. Sterling Knight, credited as his character Christopher Wilde, provides vocals on each of the new entries: "Hero" (No. 57, the chart's top debut), "Starstruck" (No. 77) and "Something about The Sunshine," with Anna Margaret (No. 81).

Canadian chanteuse k.d. lang captured her second Hot 100 chart appearance, and first since 1992's "Constant Craving" peaked at No. 38, as "Hallelujah (Vancouver Winter 2010 Version) debuted at No. 61. Lang performed the song during opening ceremonies of the XXI WinterOlympics on February 12; a newly recorded studio version appeared on her "Recollection" hits set.
