NEW YORK — For a fourth week, Rihanna’s “Umbrella” remains atop the Billboard Hot 100, with Shop Boyz’s “Party Like a Rockstar” still at No. 2. But that track is inching ever closer to No. 1, as it earns greatest gainer/airplay honors this week. “Party” remains No. 4 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, while “Umbrella” inches up from sixth to fifth on that tally.
Back on the Hot 100, Fergie’s “Big Girls Don’t Cry” rises from fourth to third, trading places with T-Pain’s “Buy U a Drank (Shawty Snappin’).” Plain White T’s’ “Hey There Delilah” climbs from sixth to fifth and is the Hot 100 fastest growing digital track, while Maroon5’s former chart-topper “Makes Me Wonder” is down from No. 5 to No. 6. Avril Lavigne’s “Girlfriend” and Justin Timberlake’s “Summer Love” hold at Nos. 7 and 8, respectively.
Amy Winehouse’s “Rehab” is up to No. 10 from No. 9, and Lil Mama’s “Lip Gloss” climbs from 12th to 10th to round out the top 10. Finally available digitally, Fabolous’ “Make Me Better” featuring Ne-Yo rockets 74-13 after selling 52,000 downloads.
Elsewhere on the Hot 100, Enrique Iglesias’ “Do You Know? (The Ping Pong Song)/Dimelo jumps from No. 31 to No. 20 to give the Latin singer his biggest hit in five years. The cut is also beginning a seventh week at No. 1 on Hot Latin Songs.
The Hot 100’s top debut is My Chemical Romance’s “Teenagers” at No. 87. Also new are Jack Johnson’s cover of John Lennon’s “Imagine” at No. 93 and Plies’ “Shawty” featuring T-Pain at No. 94.
On Hot Digital Songs, Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin'” re-enters at No. 21 with 41,000 downloads after its use in the finale scene of “The Sopranos.” It becomes the oldest track in this chart’s history to enjoy a 40,000-plus sales week and the second oldest to hit the top 20 (Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire” reached No. 18 in December 2005).
“Buy U a Drank” is still tops on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs for an eighth week. Fantasia’s “When I See U” is the fastest growing track at radio and rises from No. 3 to No. 2. Jamaican artist Sean Kingston has the best debut for a new artist on this chart in 2007 with “Beautiful Girls,” which opens at No. 53.
Brad Paisley’s “Ticks” assumes control of Hot Country Songs with a 3-1 move, earning him his eighth chart-topper. Linkin Park continues to dominate Billboard’s rock charts, starting an 11th week at No. 1 on Modern Rock and an eighth leading Mainstream Rock.
