The Black Eyed Peas Snag Top Spot On Hot 100
The Black Eyed Peas hold on to the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100, but there's plenty of drama elsewhere on the chart from Kings of Leon, Drake and Mitchel Musso.
Kings of Leon's "Use Somebody" flies up 52-19 on the chart after the band's performance of the song on the MTV Movie Awards sent downloads of the track up to 72,000 copies for the week.
Meanwhile, indie Canadian rapper Drake's "Best I Ever Had" fell 18-36 on the chart, even as it notched the chart's greatest radio airplay gain. That's because the unauthorized track was removed from sale on iTunes, leading weekly downloads to drop from 46,000 to 4,000.
Country star Kenny Chesney earns his highest ranking on the Hot 100 with "Out Last Night," which rose 60-16 after his "Greatest Hits II" went up for digital sale.
"Hannah Montana" co-star Mitchel Musso scored the week's hot shot debut with "Hey," which debuts at No. 70 on the chart. The song is from his self-titled Disney debut album, which was released June 2.
Back in the top 10, Pitbull's "I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)" rises 3-2, Keri Hilson featuring Kanye West and Ne-Yo climbs 7-3 with "Knock You Down," and Jeremih stays at No. 4 with "Birthday Sex."
Lady GaGa drops 2-5 with "Poker Face," but rises 10-6 with "Lovegame."
Shinedown's "Second Chance" goes up 11-7, as Beyonce's "Halo" falls 6-8.
Sean Kingston's "Fire Burning" smolders at No. 9 while Jamie Foxx feat.
T-Pain's "Blame It" falls 5-10.
Linkin Park claims its eighth No. 1 on the Modern Rock chart with "New Divide," from the upcoming "Transformers" film. Meanwhile, farther down the Modern Rock tally, the Fray debuts at No. 34 with its cover of Kanye West's "Heartless." It's the latest in a string of cover tunes to make the list recently, following Seether's take on George Michael's "Careless Whisper,"
My Chemical Romance's redux of Bob Dylan's "Desolation Row" and Framing Hanley's cover of Lil Wayne's "Lollipop."
