Jay Sean's "Down" returns to the top slot of the Billboard Hot 100 for a second time, just one week after Britney Spears' No. 1 debut bumped him to runner-up status. A predicted second-week digital sales dip (down 33%) sends Spears' "3" to No. 5 on the chart, even with radio play continuing to blossom. The suggestive track rises 49-25 on Hot 100 Airplay with a 44% audience increase.
Between Sean and Spears, Jason DeRulo's "Whatcha Say" climbs 4-2, leapfrogging Miley Cyrus' "Party In The U.S.A." which remains at No. 3. "Run This Town" by Jay-Z, Rihanna and Kanye West moves up 5-4.
Lady Gaga rebounds 7-6 with "Paparazzi" and takes Greatest Gainer/Airplay status for a fourth straight week, becoming the first female soloist to do so since Beyonce had a six-week streak with "Irreplaceable" in Nov-Dec 2006.
