Brown's 'Kiss' knocks out Soulja Boy


NEW YORK -- Chris Brown's "Kiss Kiss" (featuring T-Pain) finally overtakes Soulja Boy's "Crank That (Soulja Boy)," moving from No. 2 to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, after the latter track reigned high for seven weeks. "Kiss Kiss" is Brown's second No. 1 on the tally, following in the footsteps his November 2005 hit "Run It!" It is also this week's biggest airplay and digital sales gainer. The track is from Brown's forthcoming album "Exclusive," due Nov. 6 via Jive.

"Crank That," meanwhile, falls to No. 3 in its 16th week on the chart. Timbaland's "Apologize" featuring OneRepublic climbs from the third to second spot, while Alicia Keys' "No One" remains at No. 4. Colbie Caillat's "Bubbly" and Kanye West's "Stronger" follow suit, holding tight at No. 5 and No. 6, respectively.

Another West track, "Good Life" featuring T-Pain, ascends from No. 8 to No. 7 as yet another track featuring T-Pain, Baby Bash's "Cyclone," flip-flops from No. 7 to No. 8. Rihanna's "Hate That I Love You" featuring Ne-Yo, her sixth top 10 title since 2005, holds at No. 9 for a second week. Timbaland's "The Way I Are" featuring Keri Hilson keeps the No. 10 spot warm, also for a second week.

With his new album "Living Hard" entering the Billboard 200 at No. 3 yesterday (Oct. 31), Gary Allan's "Watching Airplanes" is this week's highest debut on the Hot 100. The track enters at No. 89, followed closely by Flo Rida's "Low" featuring -- you guessed it -- T-Pain at No. 91.

Other debuts this week include Rascal Flatts' "Winner at a Losing Game" at No. 94, Fall Out Boy's "I'm Like a Lawyer (Me & You)" at No. 96, Serj Tankian's "Empty Walls" at No. 97, John Mayer's "Dreaming with a Broken Heart" at No. 99 and Joe Nichols' "Another Side of You" at No. 100.

On Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, Keys' "No One" is No. 1 for a third week. Kenny Chesney's "Don't Blink" leads Hot Country Songs, also for a third week.

Foo Fighters' "The Pretender" maintains pole position on Modern Rock for an 11th week and on Mainstream Rock for a sixth. Juanes' "Me Enamora" crowns Hot Latin Songs for a seventh week. The track also moves from No. 87 to No. 69 on the Hot 100, making it the singer's career-best chart position on that tally.
