South Korean rapper Psy just can't ride his imaginary horse to the top of the chart.  Maroon 5 continues their domination of the Billboard Hot 100 with "One More Night," which is now spending a fourth week at #1.  The song is holding Psy's "Gangnam Style" at #2 for yet another week, but the race is still extremely close.

Meanwhile, One Direction blasts onto the chart at #3 with their new single "Live While We're Young." The track sold more than 341,000 copies in its first week -- that's the biggest opening-week digital sales ever for a single by a non-American act.  Not only that, but the #3 debut makes it the highest entry ever by a U.K. group in the history of the Hot 100. 

Taylor Swift 's "Red," the title cut from her upcoming album, debuts at #6 on the chart.  It's Taylor's 10th single to debut in the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100.  The two previous tracks she's released from the album -- "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" and "Begin Again" -- also reached the top 10.  Another song from Red, "I Knew You Were Trouble," is expected to debut in the top 10 as well.

Adele 's eagerly-anticipated James Bond theme "Skyfall" enters the chart at #8.  It's her first-ever song to debut inside the top 10.  As for why it didn't go higher, perhaps it's because it's only been on sale since last Thursday; the others have been out since last Tuesday and so have a couple extra days' worth of sales.

Billboard points out that thanks to "Red," "Live While We're Young" and "Skyfall," this is just the second time in the entire history of the Billboard Hot 100 that three new songs have ever debuted in the top 10.  The first time was this past March, when songs by Katy Perry , Nicki Minaj and Chris Brown all entered the top 10.
