Maroon 5 flip-flops with T-Pain to rule Hot 100
EmptyNEW YORK -- After being dethroned last week by T-Pain's "Buy U a Drank (Shawty Snappin')," Maroon 5's "Makes Me Wonder" returns to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. It's the first song to rebound to the top since Mariah Carey's "We Belong Together" in July 2005; the move was fueled by digital sales of "Makes Me Wonder" after the band's recent appearance on "American Idol."
Despite losing its perch on the Hot 100, where it slides to No. 2, "Buy U a Drank" remains No. 1 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs for a fourth consecutive week. Back on the Hot 100, Avril Lavigne's "Girlfriend" holds at No. 3, while Timbaland's "Give It to Me" featuring Nelly Furtado and Justin Timberlake stays at No. 4. Daughtry's "Home" jumps from No. 13 to a new peak of No. 5.
Huey's "Pop, Lock & Drop It" inches up 7-6, while Carrie Underwood's "Before He Cheats" rises 11-8, completing the longest climb to the top 10 in chart history after 38 weeks. The songs breaks the longevity mark of 36 weeks set by Creed's "Higher" in the July 8, 2000, issue.
Justin Timberlake's "Summer Love" is up 14-9, his fourth top 10 hit from the album "FutureSex/LoveSounds." Rounding out the top tier is Fergie's "Glamorous," which falls 8-10.
The Hot 100's top debut is Enrique Iglesias' "Do You Know? (The Ping Pong Song)/Dimelo" at No. 33. The cut is also No. 1 on the Hot Latin Songs chart in its Spanish incarnation.
Elsewhere, Amy Winehouse's "Rehab" re-enters the chart at No. 72, while MySpace.com sensation Colbie Caillat debuts at No. 91 with "Bubbly" thanks to 14,500 digital sales.
Billy Currington's "Good Directions" remains No. 1 on Hot Country Songs, which hosts notable activity from husband and wife pair Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. McGraw's previously unheard "If You're Reading This," which he debuted May 15 at the Academy of Country Music Awards, is the top new entry at No. 35, after stations began playing television audio of the cut. There is no studio version of the song yet available.
Meanwhile, McGraw's duet with Faith Hill, "I Need You," rises 21-17 on the chart, and Hill's new single, "Lost," which she also played on the ACM show, debuts at No. 48.
With its new album, "Minutes to Midnight," having scored the best opening sales week since 2005, Linkin Park continues to dominate Billboard's rock charts with "What I've Done." The cut is No. 1 on Modern Rock for a seventh week and atop Mainstream Rock for a fourth.
The newly reunited Smashing Pumpkins have the top debut on Modern Rock with "Tarantula" at No. 30. It's the first single from "Zeitgeist," the group's first album in seven years.
