After charting five previous songs, including 2001's No. 6-peaking "Whenever, Wherever," Shakira finally shook her way to the top of the Billboard Hot 100, as "Hips Don't Lie," featuring Wyclef Jean, spent its first of two weeks at No. 1.
June 18, 1988

June 19, 1965
After three prior hits – the classic "Baby I Need Your Loving" rose the highest (No. 11) – the Four Tops scored their first Billboard Hot 100 No. 1, as "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)" reached the top.
June 20, 1992
Mariah Carey's "I'll Be There," from her MTV Unplugged special, topped the Billboard Hot 100. As the Jackson 5's original version hit No. 1 in 1970, the song is one of nine compositions to lead the Hot 100 as recorded by two artists.

And … the 2012 song of the summer started its nine-week command of the Billboard Hot 100: Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe."
