While OutKast lost the No. 1 album on The Billboard 200 this week to crooner Josh Groban, the Atlanta-based hip-hop duo still has a lock on the Hot 100. "Hey Ya!" cruises to its seventh week atop the singles chart, while "The Way You Move" featuring Sleepy Brown remains steadfast at No. 2.
Both Kelis and Alicia Keys also maintain their positions. The former's "Milkshake" holds at No. 3, while Keys' "You Don't Know My Name" once again rolls in at No. 4. "Name," meanwhile, tops Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart for a sixth-straight week.
Twista reaches a new peak on the Hot 100 this week with "Slow Jamz." Featuring a cameo by Kayne West, the cut scoots up 8-5 to give Twista his highest showing as a solo artist. In 1997, his "Get It Wet" peaked at No. 96, and the year before he reached No. 22 with an appearance on Do Or Die's "Po Pimp."
Usher's "Yeah" featuring Ludacris & Lil Jon blasts 40-14 on the Hot 100, where it is the tally's fastest-growing track at radio. The cut has shot to the top-20 in just three weeks. Over on the R&B/Hip-Hop chart, the song gains 19-12.
The Hot 100's fastest-growing track at retail is Eamon's "F**k It (I Don't Want You Back)." The foul-mouthed break-up ballad jumps 47-36, and it continues to lead Billboard's Hot 100 Singles Sales chart. Eamon's Jive Records debut album is tentatively scheduled for a late February release.
The Hot 100's top debut is Jay-Z's "Dirt Off Your Shoulder," which enters the chart at No. 68. Other newcomers include Sara Evans' "Perfect" (No. 71), Trace Adkins' "Hot Mama" (No. 73), Jimmy Wayne's "I Love You This Much" (No. 74) and Jo Dee Messina's "I Wish" (No. 75).
Linkin Park's "Numb" tops Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks roundup for the 10th-week, but the cut surrenders the top spot on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. On that tally, Nickelback's "Figured You Out" moves up one slot to take over the lead.
Meanwhile, Courtney Love penetrates the Modern Rock Tracks chart for the first time as a solo artist with "Mono." The song arrives at No. 29, making Love the first female solo artist to appear on the chart since Poe's "Hey Pretty" debuted in 2001.
