1000 No. 1s Video Series Day 20:
Ne-Yo Talks About Topping the Hot 100
2011 was the year that Billboard celebrated the 1000th No. 1 song on the Hot 100. As we look back on this year in music, we're celebrating that milestone with a month-long series of videos --- one for each day of December -- chatting with 31 of the hitmakers who rocketed to the top of the chart since its inception in 1958. SEE THE FULL CHART HERE.
"Sick"reached the top of the Hot 100 on March 18, 2006, knocking James Blunt's "You're Beautiful" off the throne. Ne-Yo's broken-hearted ballad proved infectious enough, it turned out, to hold onto No. 1 for two weeks.
Be sure to come back tomorrow (Dec. 21) for the next 1000 No. 1s video: Gloria Estefan talks about her No. 1s, "Don't Wanna Lose You" and "Coming Out Of The Dark."
