The 23-year-old, who is expected to achieve her first UK number one single this weekend, has held the top position in the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart for almost two months.
The rest of the top five is dominated by one of the music world's glamour couples, with Chris Brown rising one place to second with Forever while his girlfriend Rihanna holds third and fourth.
