Beyonce's "Irreplaceable" begins an eighth week at No. 1 on the Hot 100 but barely edges out Fall Out Boy's "This Ain't a Scene, It's An Arms Race," which debuts at No. 2 thanks to 162,000 digital dowBeyonce's "Irreplaceable" begins an eighth week at No. 1 on the Hot 100 but barely edges out Fall Out Boy's "This Ain't a Scene, It's An Arms Race," which debuts at No. 2 thanks to 162,000 digital downloads, according to Nielsen SoundScan. This is the highest bow for a band since radio-only titles joined the chart in December 1998.
The last group to start as well or better was Aerosmith, who debuted at No. 1 under prior Hot 100 rules with "I Don't Want To Miss a Thing" in September 1998. In addition, the download totals for "This Ain't a Scene" are the largest opening-week tally for a group since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking digital sales in 2003.
The song also soars 86-1 on the Pop 100, bumping "Irreplaceable" to No. 2. It is drawn from Fall Out Boy's new album, "Infinity on High," which arrives Feb. 6 via Island Def Jam.
Back on the Hot 100, Nelly Furtado's "Say It Right" reaches a new peak with a 4-3 climb, while Akon's "I Wanna Love You" featuring Snoop Dogg drops 2-4. Jim Jones' "We Fly High" is up 6-5, followed by Daughtry's "It's Not Over," which rockets 21-6 and is the chart's greatest digital gainer. As reported yesterday (Jan. 24), Daughtry's self-titled RCA debut ascended to No. 1 on The Billboard 200 in its ninth chart week.
Fergie's "Fergalicious" drops 3-7, and Akon's "Smack That" featuring Eminem is down 5-8. The Fray's "How To Save a Life" (7-9) and My Chemical Romance's "Welcome to the Black Parade" (9-10) round out the Hot 100's upper echelon.
At No. 14, Corbin Bleu debuts with "Push It to the Limit" from Disney's "Jump In!" soundtrack. The cut also opens at No. 5 on Hot Digital Songs, having shifted 77,000 downloads. The next highest debut on the Hot 100 is Nickelback's "If Everyone Cared" at No. 50.
"Irreplaceable" also loses footing on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, where it had spent nine weeks at No. 1. For five of those, Ciara's "Promise" was in the runner-up spot, but this week at takes over atop the tally, earning the artist her second solo No. 1 on the chart. She was also featured on Bow Wow's No. 1 Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs hit, "Like You."
On Billboard's Hot Latin Songs chart, Hector "El Father" has the new No. 1 with "Sola," dethroning Mana's "Bendita Tu Luz," which slips to No. 4. Rodney Atkins' "Watching You" remains No. 1 for a second week on Hot Country Songs, while Rihanna's "We Ride" jumps 2-1 to rule the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers begin a second week at No. 1 on the Modern Rock chart with "Snow (Hey Oh)," while Three Days Grace is atop Mainstream Rock for a seventh with "Pain."
