'Umbrella' hits seventh week on Hot 100


NEW YORK -- Rihanna's "Umbrella" begins a seventh week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, having successfully fended off Shop Boyz's "Party Like a Rockstar," which drops from No. 2 to No. 4. Its newest competitor is Plain White T's' "Hey There Delilah," which inches up from No. 3 to No. 2.

Fergie's "Big Girls Don't Cry" is also climbing on the Hot 100, going from fourth to third, and with an advance from No. 2 to No. 1 on the Pop 100, earns her the distinction of the first lead artist to notch four No. 1s on that tally.

Back on the Hot 100, T-Pain's "Buy U a Drank (Shawty Snappin')" holds at No. 5, while another song, "Bartender" featuring Akon, jumps from No. 14 to No. 10. T-Pain thus becomes the first lead artist with two simultaneous Hot 100 top 10 hits since Akon in late January.

Timbaland's "The Way I Are" featuring Keri Hilson holds at No. 6, as does Maroon5's "Makes Me Wonder" at No. 7. Hurricane Chris' "A Bay Bay" continues to rise with a move from No. 13 to No. 8, and T.I.'s "Big Things Poppin' (Do It)" jumps from 11th to ninth in tandem with yesterday's No. 1 Billboard 200 debut for his latest Grand Hustle/Atlantic album, "T.I. vs. T.I.P."

After previously peaking at No. 7, Linkin Park's "What I've Done" rebounds from 24th to 14th as the chart's greatest digital gainer. It also remains No. 1 on Billboard's Modern Rock chart for an astonishing 14th consecutive week.

T.I. has the Hot 100's top debut with the Wyclef Jean collaboration "You Know What It Is" at No. 68. Also new is Justin Timberlake's "Lovestoned" at No. 85 and the Goo Goo Dolls' "Before It's Too Late (Sam and Mikaela's Theme) at No. 86.

Fantasia's "When I See U" is No. 1 for a third week on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Chart but will face a challenge from Fabolous' "Make Me Better" featuring Ne-Yo, which is the chart's fastest growing track at radio and climbs 8-4.

On Hot Country Songs, Big & Rich claims its first No. 1 with "Lost in This Moment" after 22 weeks on the chart. The duo had never previously been higher than No. 11 on Hot Country Songs before the release of this single. Rascal Flatts' "Take Me There" is the chart's top debut at No. 24; the Kenny Chesney co-write is the first single from the group's Sept. 25 Lyric Street release.

Marco Antonio Solis' "Ojala" is No. 1 on Hot Latin Songs for a third week, while Ozzy Osbourne leads Mainstream Rock for a third with "I Don't Wanna Stop."
