"Hips Don't Lie"After entering the charts 12 weeks ago at No. 84, Shakira's "Hips Don't Lie" featuring Wyclef Jean finally tops the Billboard Hot 100 and is the chart's greatest digital sales gainer. "Hips Don't Lie" amassed a record-setting 266,500 downloads, accounting for its 38-1 explosion on Hot Digital Songs and its 9-1 move on the Hot 100.
The track also crowns the Hot Latin Songs chart for a fourth week and both the Hot Digital Songs chart and the Pop 100 for its first. "Hips" had been held back by Epic from the digital spectrum in a bid to increase sales of Shakira's re-issued "Oral Fixation Vol. 2" album. It thusly shatters the one-week download mark of 175,500 set by D4L's "Laffy Taffy" in the post-Christmas week last year.
On the Hot 100, the track bumps Chamillionaire's "Ridin'" featuring Krayzie Bone down to No. 2 after a two-week reign at No. 1. "Promiscuous" by Nelly Furtado featuring Timbaland keeps the No. 3 spot warm while Yung Joc's "It's Goin' Down" flies up the chart 24-4 and holds the No. 1 slot on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs for a third week.
Daniel Powter's "Bad Day" slips 2-5, though it retains the lead on both Adult Top 40 Tracks and the Adult Contemporary Tracks. Fort Minor's "Where'd You Go" featuring Holly Brook descends 4-6 on the Hot 100 and Rihanna's "SOS" follows suit, dipping 5-7. Cassie's "Me & U" also moves down 6-8.
Another Rihanna track, "Unfaithful," enters the top tier, moving 12-9 in its sixth week. Sean Paul's "Temperature" caps the top 10, falling 7-10.
Rascal Flatts' cover of Tom Cochrane's "Life is a Highway" is this week's top debut, entering at No. 59. Lupe Fiasco's "Kick Push" (No. 79), Mary J. Blige and U2's remake of "One" (No. 86), Young Dro's "Shoulder Lean" featuring T.I. (No. 86) and Kenny Rogers' "I Can't Unlove You" (No. 98) also bow on the chart this week.
Kenny Chesney's "Summertime" makes it's first appearance at the pole position on Hot Country Songs while Red Hot Chili Peppers' "Dani California" leads both the Modern Rock and Mainstream Rock tallies for an eighth and sixth week, respectively.
