By Gary Trust
NEW YORK (Billboard) - Eminem's "Love the Way You Lie" led Billboard's Hot 100 singles chart for a fifth week on Thursday, a day after the rapper logged a sixth round atop the albums chart with "Recovery."
The track also rebounded one place to No. 1 on the Digital Songs tally, and reigned for a second week on Radio Songs -- the first time an artist has led both lists since Ke$ha's "TiK ToK" in February.
Taio Cruz's "Dynamite" remained at No. 2. Katy Perry's former chart-topper "California Gurls" rose one to No. 3 and the title track from her upcoming album "Teenage Dream" jumped four to No. 5. The album comes out on August 24.
Enrique Iglesias' "I Like It" rose one to No. 4. As his debut album "31 Minutes to Takeoff" launched at No. 8 on the Billboard 200, Mike Posner's "Cooler Than Me" edged up one to No. 6 on the Hot 100. Usher's "DJ Got Us Falling in Love," likewise rose a notch to No. 7.
Taylor Swift's "Mine" fell five places to No. 8 in its second week, B.o.B's "Airplanes" descended three to No. 9, and Jason Derulo's "Ridin' Solo" held at No. 10.
Trey Songz landed the top debut as "Bottoms Up," featuring Nicki Minaj, came in at No. 22.
