A surge in airplay sends Chingy's "Right Thurr" further up Billboard's Hot 100, but its quest for No. 1 remains thwarted by Beyoncé's "Crazy in Love" featuring Jay-Z. "Crazy in Love" continues its dominance for a fifth week on the Hot 100 and a third on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks tally.
Although "Right Thurr" is held to No. 2 on both charts (up one on the Hot 100 and two on the R&B/Hip-Hop chart), it owns the No. 1 slot on Billboard's Hot Rap Tracks list for a third week.
Slipping behind "Right Thurr" is Ashanti's "Rock Wit U (Awww Baby)," which falls one to No. 3. Although "Rock" is the Hot 100's fastest-growing track at retail, a significant airplay lead pushed "Right Thurr" further up the chart.
New to the top-10 of the Hot 100 this week is "Where Is the Love?" from the Black Eyed Peas, up 12-8. Featuring an unbilled cameo by Justin Timberlake, "Love" is only the second cut from the Black Eyed Peas to make the Hot 100. The band's "Request Line," which featured a guest turn by Macy Gray, peaked at No. 63 two years ago.
Also new to the Hot 100's top-10 is "Get Low" from Lil' Jon & the East Side Boyz featuring the Ying Yang Twins, up this week 16-10. It's also only the second Lil' Jon cut to make its mark on the big chart; "Bia Bia," featuring Ludacris, Too Short, Big Kap & Chyna White, hit No. 94 in 2001.
The Hot 100's fastest-growing track at radio is "Shake Ya Tailfeather," from Nelly, P. Diddy and Murphy Lee. The cut, which glides 18-12 into a new peak position, is taken from the "Bad Boys II" soundtrack (Bad Boy/Universal), which has notched a second week as the No. 1 album on The Billboard 200,
Making gains on the Hot 100 are Mya's "My Love Is Like ... Wo" (41-29), and R. Kelly's "Thoia Thoing" (42-33). The Hot 100's top debut is Korn's "Did My Time," which lands at No. 38. The song, featured in the film "Lara Croft, Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life," but not on the soundtrack, gives Korn its first top-40 single.
Other notable entries on the chart include Busta Rhymes' "Light You're A** on Fire" at No. 69, Young Gunz's "Can't Stop, Won't Stop" at No. 72 and Martina McBride's "This One's for the Girls" at No. 73.
Jimmy Buffet earns his first No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Country Singles & Tracks roundup with his duet with Alan Jackson, "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere." Further down, Dierks Bentley's "What Was I Thinkin'," the fastest-rising song by a debut country artist this year, scoots 11-9.
On Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks tally, Linkin Park's "Faint" moves 2-1, knocking "Just Because" from Jane's Addiction from the top spot. Meanwhile, Chevelle's "Send the Pain Below" cruises to a fourth, non-consecutive week at the top of the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.
