NEW YORK (Billboard) - Former Christian music singer Katy Perry's bi-curious tune "I Kissed a Girl" began a sixth week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart Thursday, solidifying its status as the song of the summer.

Rihanna's former chart-topper, "Take a Bow," was No. 2 for a fourth week, and her latest single, "Disturbia," jumped 11 places to No. 4. In between, her rumored boyfriend Chris Brown's "Forever" was No. 3 for a second week.

Coldplay's "Viva La Vida" was unchanged at No. 5. Lil Wayne also boasted two entries in the top 10: "A Milli" held at No. 6, and "Lollipop" featuring Static Major fell three to No. 7.

Canadian rapper Kardinal Offishall's "Dangerous" featuring Akon rose one to No. 8, Leona Lewis' "Bleeding Love" fell three to No. 9 and Jesse McCartney's "Leavin"' remained at No. 10.

Rookie Malibu rapper Shwayze's "Corona and Lime" was the top debut at No. 26. Also new was Miley Cyrus' "Breakout" at No. 56. It's the title track of her new album, which debuted at No. 1 on the U.S. album chart Wednesday.
