Mariah Carey's "We Belong Together" continues its summer domination, as it begins its 13th non-consecutive week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and a 14th straight in control of the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
But as was the case last week, Carey may prove to be her own best challenger for those chart thrones. Her track "Shake It Off" jumps 6-4 on the Hot 100 and 10-3 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and is the greatest airplay gainer on both tallies. On the Pop 100, "Together" holds at No. 3, while "Shake It Off" inches up 15-13.
With "Together" ruling the Hot 100, the Pussycat Dolls' "Don't Cha" featuring Busta Rhymes begins a third week at No. 2, followed by Rihanna's "Pon de Replay" at No. 3 and Bow Wow's "Let Me Hold You" at No. 5. On the Pop 100, "Don't Cha" is No. 1 for a fifth-straight frame.
It's a big week for pop-rock act the Click Five, which bows at No. 15 on The Billboard 200 with its Lava debut, "Greetings From Imrie House." Its single "Just the Girl" rockets 21-11 on the Hot 100 and ascends 4-1 to take over the lead on the Hot Digital Songs chart.
Other notable climbers on the Hot 100 include the Black Eyed Peas' "Don't Lie (31-17) and "My Humps" (59-39), Green Day's "Wake Me Up When September Ends" (49-21), Brad Paisley's "Alcohol" (66-28) and Akon's "Belly Dancer (Bananza)" (79-61).
The chart's top debut comes from Hilary Duff's "Wake Up" at No. 29. The cut is also the top debut at No. 6 on Hot Digital Songs with 28,500 downloads. The artist's Hollywood best-of, "Most Wanted," zoomed to No. 1 on The Billboard 200 yesterday (Aug. 24).
Billboard's rock airplay charts remain the same as last week, with Gorillaz' "Feel Good Inc." at No. 1 on Modern Rock list and Seether's "Remedy" at the top of the Mainstream Rock tally.
On the Hot Country Songs roundup, Faith Hill's "Mississippi Girl" zooms 3-1 in its 15th week, earning her first No. 1 on this chart since "The Way You Love Me" in 2000. On the Hot Latin Songs chart, Shakira's "La Tortura" featuring Alejandro Sanz flips places with Luis Fonsi's "Nada Es Para Siempre" to take over the lead.
