The cut also remains No. 1 on the Pop 100 and Hot Digital Songs charts for the same duration. On the Hot 100, Sean Paul's "Temperature," which is the chart's greatest sales gainer, and T.I.'s "What You Know" stay put at No. 2 and No. 3, respectively.
Chamillionaire's "Ridin'" featuring Krayzie Bone climbs 12-4, Natasha Bedingfield's "Unwritten" holds at No. 5 and LL Cool J's "Control Myself" featuring Jennifer Lopez descends 4-6. Dem Franchize Boyz' "Lean Wit It, Rock Wit It" featuring Lil Peanut & Charlay rises 10-7.
Elsewhere on the chart, James Blunt's "You're Beautiful" falls 7-8, as Bubba Sparxxx' "Ms. New Booty" featuring Ying Yang Twins and Mr. ColliPark jumps 11-9. The Blunt track remains atop the Adult Contemporary chart for a third week, while "Ms. New Booty" leads the Hot Ringtones chart for a fourth.
Rounding out the Hot 100 top tier is Red Hot Chili Peppers' "Dani California," which falls 9-10 but holds at No. 1 on the Modern Rock chart for a third week. The track also seizes the top spot on the Mainstream Rock tally, ending the five-week run of Godsmack's "Speak," which drops to No. 2.
Scoring big on both rock charts is Tool's "Vicarious," which enjoys a No. 2 debut on Modern Rock and a No. 3 entry on Mainstream Rock. The cut is drawn from the band's Volcano album "10,000 Days," which is released Tuesday (May 2).
On the Hot Country Songs chart, Bon Jovi's duet with Jennifer Nettles, "Who Says You Can't Go Home," rises 2-1 and ends the five-week reign of Rascal Flatts' "What Hurts the Most," which falls to No. 2. This is the first time a rock act has reached No. 1 on the chart since Billboard began tracking country singles in 1944.
"Who Says You Can't Go Home" also marks the first time in almost 30 years that a top billed non-country artist has reached No. 1 with their first attempt at the country chart -- it hasn't happened since pop crooner Tom Jones did so with "Say You'll Stay Until Tomorrow" in 1977.
Chris Brown's "Gimme That" featuring Lil' Wayne is the Hot 100's greatest airplay gainer, rising 61-42, and Dixie Chicks' "Not Ready To Make Nice" is the chart's top debut at No. 28.

Anais' "Lo Que Son Las Cosas" holds at No. 1 on the Hot Latin Songs chart for a fourth week.
