Their hit ‘Love The Way You Lie’ – also top in Australia at present – climbs to No.1 this week after spending three consecutive weeks in second position.

It becomes the fourth and seventh US chart-toppers for Eminem and Rihanna respectively.

Perry slips to two with ‘California Gurls’, while B.o.B. and Hayley Williams hold steady at three with ‘Airplanes’.

Meanwhile, Taio Cruz climbs from six to four with ‘Dynamite’, the follow-up to his transatlantic chart-topper ‘Break Your Heart’.

Notable gains outside the top ten come from Shontelle, who jumps from 16 to 13 with ‘Impossible’, and Maroon 5, who leap from 44 to 28 with ‘Misery’.
