Lil Wayne, Bruno Mars, and Rihanna (pictured in order) tied for the most top-ten singles in 2011 with six each. Mars's "Grenade" had a four-week run at number one on the Hot 100 and ranked number six on Billboard's year-end Hot 100 list. Rihanna became the fastest solo artist to collect twenty top-ten hits when her single "We Found Love" (featuring Calvin Harris) entered the top ten six years and four months after she first appeared on the Hot 100. The song, as well as her single "S&M" (featuring Britney Spears), climbed to number one on the chart, "S&M" logging one week at the top and "We Found Love" logging ten weeks, including two in 2012.

Seventy-one singles made into top 10 of the Hot 100, the all-genre Billboard singles charts, in 2011. Sixty-eight acts had a top-ten hit during the year, with twenty achieving their first either as a lead or featured artist. Lil Wayne, Bruno Mars, and Rihanna each had six top-ten hits in 2011, tying them for the most top-ten hits during the year. LMFAO's "Party Rock Anthem" (featuring Lauren Bennett and GoonRock) had a twenty-six-week run in the top ten, the longest during the year and tying with Savage Garden's "Truly Madly Deeply" as the fourth-longest in Billboard history. In the beginning of 2012, the song re-entered the top ten, extending its run to twenty-nine weeks and becoming the fourth-longest-running top-ten single ever behind "How Do I Live" by LeAnn Rimes, "Smooth" by Santana featuring Rob Thomas and "Uptown Funk" by Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars, also bumping Jewel's You Were Meant For Me/Foolish Games down to fifth, with 28 weeks.

On the week ending April 30, 2011, singer Katy Perry extended her top ten streak beginning the previous year to forty-nine weeks, breaking a record held by Swedish pop band Ace of Base for seventeen years. Perry went on to log twenty more consecutive weeks in the top ten, extending her record to sixty-nine weeks, before "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" fell out of the top ten on the week ending September 24, 2011, ending her streak.

Rihanna attained her twentieth top-ten hit when "We Found Love" (featuring Calvin Harris) climbed into the top ten on the week ending October 15, 2011. This made Rihanna the fastest soloist to attain twenty top-ten hits, having done so in a six-year, four-month span, breaking a record previously held by singer Madonna.

Lady Gaga made history by having simultaneously four singles in the Top 20 chart namely, "Born This Way", "Judas", "The Edge of Glory" and "Hair", first time after decades. (This feat was later matched by Eminem in 2013 who also got 4 singles into the Top 20 simultaneously)

Top-ten singles[edit]

In 2011, singer Katy Perry broke the record for the longest consecutive run in the top ten after logging forty-nine weeks in the tier; later in the year, she went on to extend this record to sixty-nine weeks. Perry scored four top-ten singles during the year, three of which went to number one and two of which, "Firework" and "E.T." (featuring Kanye West), ranked at numbers three and four respectively on Billboard's year-end Hot 100 list.
English singer-songwriter Adele achieved her first top-ten single with "Rolling in the Deep", which logged seven weeks at number one and went on to become Billboard's number-one single of the year. She later achieved a second top-ten single with "Someone Like You", which spent five weeks at number one.
Electropop duo LMFAO had the longest-running top-ten single in 2011 with "Party Rock Anthem" (featuring Lauren Bennett and GoonRock), which remained in the top ten for twenty-six weeks, tying with Savage Garden's "Truly Madly Deeply" for the fourth-longest top ten run for a single in Billboard history. In 2012, the song spent three more weeks in the top ten, extending its run to twenty-nine weeks and becoming the third-longest-running top-ten single ever. The song spent six weeks at number one and became Billboard's number-two single of 2011. LMFAO scored a second top-ten single in 2011 with "Sexy and I Know It", which reached number one in 2012.
Pop rock band Maroon 5 scored their fourth top-ten single with "Moves Like Jagger" (featuring Christina Aguilera). The song became the band's second number-one hit, remaining at the Hot 100 summit for four weeks, and ranked number nine on Billboard's year-end Hot 100 list.
