Top 40 Pop Songs Chart -- January 2011

NOTE: Be sure to visit our Best Songs of 2011 feature for an updated list.

This month, Bruno Mars sits atop the Top 40 songs chart once again with his No. 1 smash single 'Grenade.' January also introduces 11 new songs to the chart, including 'Pretty Girl Rock' by Keri Hilson, 'Right Thru Me' by Nicki Minaj and 'Black and Yellow' by Wiz Khalifa.

Kesha's 'We R Who We R' rises three notches to the No. 2 spot on the charts, while new singles from Rihanna and Pink give the pop divas even more real estate this month. Rihanna's 'What's My Name' holds strong at No. 6, and her new single 'S&M' enters at No. 12. Pink's 'Raise Your Glass' falls two spots to No. 3, but her new song, 'Perfect,' makes a splash at No. 9.

Interestingly, Katy Perry's 'Firework,' Taylor Swift's 'Back to December' and Justin Bieber's 'Pray' are clinging to their previous month's rankings, not moving a single spot up or down.
