Maroon 5, Christina Aguilera Atop Hot 100 For Third Week

As previously reported the Billboard Hot 100's splashiest headline this week comes courtesy of Tony Bennett, who becomes the oldest living artist ever to appear on the tally. His duet with Amy Winehouse, "Body and Soul," enters the chart at No. 87, lifting the 85-year-old past then-84-year-old George Burns (in 1980) for the esteemed honor.

Still, other news infuses this week's chart.

Maroon 5's "Moves Like Jagger," featuring Christina Aguilera, spends a third week at No. 1 on the Hot 100, roaring to the No. 1 spot on Hot 100 Airplay and holding atop Hot Digital Songs.

"Jagger" blasts 5-1 on Hot 100 Airplay with a 14% gain to 123 million all-format audience impressions, according to Nielsen BDS. The song marks Maroon 5's first No. 1 on the chart, passing the twin No. 5 peaks of "This Love" and "She Will Be Loved" in 2004. Aguilera celebrates her third time singing on the country's most-heard song: her debut pop smash "Genie in a Bottle" reigned for three weeks in 1999 and "Lady Marmalade," with Lil' Kim, Mya and P!nk, led for six frames in 2001.

The 5-1 vault of "Jagger" on Hot 100 Airplay is the greatest since Jay-Z and Alicia Keys' "Empire State of Mind" bounded 6-1 on the Nov. 28, 2009, chart.

"Jagger" leads Hot Digital Songs for a fourth frame with 221,000 downloads sold (up 1%), according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Former Hot 100 No. 1 "Someone Like You" by Adele holds at No. 2 for a second week with Greatest Gainer/Airplay honors. The ballad jumps into the Hot 100 Airplay top 10 (13-9), surging by 37% to 84 million. The track is the Greatest Gainer on Mainstream Top 40 (16-13) and Adult Contemporary (14-13), while bulleting at No. 4 on Triple A, No. 5 on Adult Top 40 and No. 27 on Rock Songs.

Foster the People's "Pumped Up Kicks" holds at No. 3 on the Hot 100 for a fourth week. The song pushes 10-8 on Hot 100 Airplay (90 million, up 11%) and remains at No. 3 on Hot Digital Songs (186,000, down 4%).

LMFAO's former six-week No. 1 "Party Rock Anthem," featuring Lauren Bennett and GoonRock (4-4) and Gym Class Heroes' "Stereo Hearts," featuring Maroon 5 lead singer Adam Levine (6-5), round out the Hot 100's top five. The latter song advances 5-4 on Hot Digital Songs (144,000, down 1%) and 16-14 on Hot 100 Airplay (63 million, up 9%).

Bad Meets Evil's "Lighters," featuring Bruno Mars, slips 5-6 on the Hot 100 and Cobra Starship's "You Make Me Feel...," featuring Sabi, lifts 11-7 after reaching a previous high point of No. 8 two weeks ago. "Feel" flies to its new peak thanks to gains in digital sales (130,000, up 2%) and airplay (60 million, up 10%).

Closing out the Hot 100's top 10 are Rihanna's "Cheers (Drink to That)" (10-8); Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass" (7-9); and, Lady Gaga's "You and I" (8-10).

Outside the Hot 100's top tier, David Guetta's "Without You," featuring Usher, claims Digital Gainer accolades, charging 23-15. It roars 18-10 on Digital Songs, increasing by 71% to 104,000.

All charts, including the Hot 100, Hot Digital Songs and Hot 100 Airplay, will be refreshed tomorrow (Sept. 22) on Billboard.biz
