Colbie Caillat, Mary Mary and the Ting Tings shake up the Billboard Hot 100 in a week where the top five spots on the chart remain unchanged.
Caillat has the week's hot shot debut at No. 12 with "Falling For You," the first song from her forthcoming album "Breakthrough," due Aug. 25. With 118,000 first-week downloads, it's also her first top 10 on the Hot Digital Songs chart since debut single "Bubbly" peaked at No. 4 in November 2007.
"That's Not My Name" by the Ting Tings returns to the Billboard Hot 100 nearly two months after moving to recurrent status as an increased surge in radio airplay and digital downloads prompts a No. 45 re-entry, its best chart ranking yet. The track first entered the list in December and peaked at No. 52 in the May 9 issue. Top 40 radio play is the basis for its reappearance, as it moves 22-19 on the Mainstream Top 40 tally and makes its first foray onto the Hot 100 Airplay chart at No. 57 (21.8 million listener impressions). The track has also made inroads with the pre-teen set, having accumulated over 300 plays to date on Radio Disney.
Following a performance at the highly-rated BET Awards, gospel duo Mary Mary return to the Hot 100 for the first time since 2000 with single "God In Me" featuring Kierra Sheard. The song saw a 69% gain in downloads, landing it at No. 91 on the Hot 100.
Elsewhere on the chart, New Boyz' "You're a Jerk" scores a 20% airplay gain to land at No. 40.
The top five placeholders on the Hot 100 are the same as last week's, with the Black Eyed Peas' "I Gotta Feeling" scoring the week's greatest airplay increase and maintaining its No. 1 spot. The Peas' "Boom Boom Pow" holds on at No. 2, Drake's "Best I Ever Had" stays at No. 3, Keri Hilson's "Knock You Down," featuring Kanye West and Ne-Yo, remains at No. 4, and Lady GaGa's "LoveGame" is still No. 5.
Sean Kingston's "Fire Burning" climbs 7-6, Jeremih's "Birthday Sex" rises 8-7, Pitbull's "I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)" drops two spots to No. 8, and Taylor Swift's "You Belong With Me" climbs 11-9. Linkin Park's "New Divide" falls one spot to No. 10.
On Billboard's Hot Digital Songs chart, Michael Jackson will hold down five out of the top 10 slots, with "Man in the Mirror" leading as his top selling digital download song of the week (159,000; down 3%). Overall, it ranks as the second-best selling song of the week, next to the Black Eyed Peas' "I Gotta Feeling" (215,000; up 6%).
Miley Cyrus climbs to No. 1 on the Adult Contemporary chart with "The Climb," rising 2-1 in its 17th chart week. It's Cyrus' first No. 1 single on any of Billboard's airplay charts.
Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart greets two debuts within its top 40 this week. Tim McGraw's "It's a Business Doing Pleasure With You" enters at No. 35 while Toby Keith's "American Ride" starts at No. 38. McGraw's "Business" is the first single from his forthcoming studio set "Southern Voice," due out this fall. Keith's recently recorded "Ride" was rushed to radio and seemed a perfect fit for Independence Day-themed programming.
