Ludacris holds off Timberlake to stay No. 1
EmptyNEW YORK -- Ludacris' "Money Maker" featuring Pharrell holds for a second week atop the Billboard Hot 100 after dethroning Justin Timberlake's "SexyBack" last week. However, the Ludacris track is displaced from the top of Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, as Chris Brown's "Say Goodbye" regains its No. 1 position.
Akon's "Smack That" featuring Eminem is the Hot 100's greatest sales gainer and rises 4-2. The cut also captures the top spot on Hot Digital Songs from Hinder's "Lips of an Angel," as the two swap positions, 2-1.
The Hinder track holds at No. 3 on the Hot 100 but rises 2-1 on the Pop 100, ending the seven-week run of "SexyBack," which falls to No. 3. "SexyBack" also drops 2-4 on the Hot 100, although Timberlake's new single "My Love" ascends 8-5 and is the chart's greatest airplay gainer.
Elsewhere on the Hot 100, the Fray's "How To Save a Life" drops 5-6, JoJo's "Too Little Too Late" warms the No. 7 spot and Snow Patrol's "Chasing Cars" descends 6-8. Diddy's "Come To Me" featuring Nicole Scherzinger enters the top 10 with an 18-9 leap, his biggest hit with one of his own songs since "I Need a Girl (Part Two)" reached No. 4 in 2002. Nickelback's "Far Away" rounds out the top tier at No. 10.
Diddy's "Tell Me" featuring Christina Aguilera lands the Hot 100 top debut at No. 62. Also bowing on the chart are Tenacious D's "The Pick of Destiny" (No. 78), Beyonce's "Irreplaceable" (No. 87), Cassie's "Long Way 2 Go" (No. 97) and RBD's "Tu Amor" (No. 99).
Dierks Bentley's "Every Mile A Memory" jumps 3-1 on Hot Country Songs, unseating Heartland's "I Loved Her First" as the two cuts trade positions. Natasha Bedingfield's "Unwritten" leads Adult Contemporary for a second week, while on Hot Latin Songs, Wisin & Yandel's "Pam Pam" swaps 2-1 with David Bisbal's "Quien Me Iba A Decir."
Also swapping 2-1, Disturbed's cover of Genesis' "Land of Confusion" ends the five-week run of Stone Sour's "Through Glass" on Mainstream Rock. On Modern Rock, My Chemical Romance's "Welcome to the Black Parade" hops one rung to No. 1, replacing the Killers' "When You Were Young," which falls to No. 3 after two weeks atop the chart.
