Usher in No. 1 'Club' on Hot 100
EmptyNEW YORK -- Usher posts the third-largest jump to No. 1 in Billboard Hot 100 history as "Love in This Club" featuring Young Jeezy, zooms from No. 51 to the top spot. It also opens at No. 1 on Hot Digital Songs with 198,000 downloads, the largest first-week sum since Sean Kingston shifted 260,000 in the Aug. 11 issue.
The track is from Usher's new album, "Here I Stand," due in June via LaFace/Zomba.
Flo Rida's "Low," which has been No. 1 on the Hot 100 for 10 weeks, drops to No. 2. But it sets a new record as it spends its 13th straight week atop the RingMasters chart, eclipsing the mark of 12 weeks set by Soulja Boy's "Crank That (Soulja Boy)" in November 2007. "Low" is 2008's top selling RingMaster, having moved more than 800,000 units in the first two months of the year.
On the Hot 100, Chris Brown's "With You" slips from No. 2 to No. 3, Rihanna's "Don't Stop the Music" is down from the third to fourth spot, and Sara Bareilles' "Love Song" falls from No. 4 to No. 5. Jordin Sparks' "No Air" featuring Chris Brown jumps from No. 13 to No. 6, and Timbaland's "Apologize" featuring OneRepublic drops from sixth to seventh.
Alicia Keys' "No One" slides from No. 5 to No. 8, as Webbie, Lil' Phat & Boosie's "Independent" holds at No. 9. Snoop Dogg's "Sensual Seduction" falls from No. 7 to No. 10 to round out the top 10.
Janet Jackson's "Feedback" is the chart's top digital gainer after selling 81,000 downloads. As reported yesterday, her new Island Def Jam album, "Discipline," debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
The chart's top debut comes from Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova's "Falling Slowly," which recently won the best song Oscar. The track from the film "Once" opens at No. 61 after selling 41,000 downloads.
On Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, Keyshia Cole's "I Remember" is No. 1 for a fourth week. The top debut comes from DAY26, the latest entrant in Diddy's "Making the Band" series. Their song "Got Me Going" starts at No. 72; the group's debut album arrives March 25.
Carrie Underwood overtakes the top slot on Hot Country Songs with "All-American Girl," which races from No. 5 to No. 1. Her fourth No. 1 on the tally nudges Rodney Atkins' "Cleaning This Gun (Come on in Boy)" down to No. 2.
It's business as usual on Billboard's rock charts, with Foo Fighters' "Long Road to Ruin" at No. 1 on Modern Rock for a third week and Puddle of Mudd's "Psycho" leading Mainstream Rock for a fourth.
