Fergie's "London Bridge" holds atop the Billboard Hot 100 for a second week and also leads the Hot Digital Songs chart for the same time span. The Hot 100's No. 2-5 slots see no movement, occupied respectively by Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy," Nelly Furtado's "Promiscuous," Cassie's "Me & U" and the Pussycat Dolls' "Buttons" featuring Snoop Dogg.
Former Westlife vocalist Brian McFadden started his solo career with a No. 1 U.K. single yesterday (Sept. 12), while Natasha Bedingfield followed her recent chart-topping single "These Words" with a best-selling album. McFadden, who left Westlife last year and has since changed the spelling of his first name from "Bryan," debuted at the top with "Real to Me."
50 Cent may have lost the top slot on The Billboard 200 to R. Kelly, but his single "In Da Club" claims the No. 1 post this week on Billboard's Hot 100. The cut knocks Jennifer Lopez's "All I Have" featuring LL Cool J to No. 2 after four weeks on top. "In Da Club" is besting "All I Have" at radio, and continues to outperform the song in urban markets, as the cut is No. 1 on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart for a fifth-straight week.
