LOS ANGELES (Billboard) - The Black Eyed Peas led Billboard's Hot 100 singles chart for a 10th week on Thursday, while Kings of Leon and Kenny Chesney soared up the rankings.

The Peas reigned with "Boom Boom Pow," the first single from their album "The E.N.D.," which was released in the United States on Tuesday. "Boom Boom Pow" also ended the 15-week reign on the European Hot 100 Singles chart of Lady Gaga's "Poker Face."

Back in the U.S., Kings of Leon's "Use Somebody" jumped 33 places to No. 19 after the band's performance of the song on the MTV Movie Awards sent downloads of the track up to 72,000 copies for the week.

Country star Chesney earned his highest ranking on the Hot 100 with "Out Last Night," which rose 44 places to No. 16 after his "Greatest Hits II" went up for digital sale.

"Hannah Montana" co-star Mitchel Musso scored the week's top debut with "Hey," which debuted at No. 70. The song is from his self-titled Disney debut album, which was released June 2.

In the top tier, Pitbull's "I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)" rose one to No. 2, Keri Hilson featuring Kanye West and Ne-Yo climbed four to No. 3 with "Knock You Down," and Jeremih stayed at No. 4 with "Birthday Sex."

Lady GaGa fell three to No. 5 with "Poker Face," but rose four to No. 6 with "Lovegame." Shinedown's "Second Chance" rose four to No. 7, as Beyonce's "Halo" fell two to No. 8.

Sean Kingston's "Fire Burning" smoldered at No. 9 while Jamie Foxx featuring T-Pain's "Blame It" fell five to No. 10.
