Bounding into the upper echelon of the Hot 100 is Eminem's "Just Lose It," which is the chart's greatest airplay gainer this week. The track entered last week as the top debut at No. 17 and jumps to No. 10. "Lose" is the first single from the rapper's upcoming Shady/Interscope album "Encore" (due Nov. 16), which will be available in a special collector's edition including telescoping casing, an exclusive photo of the artist and free ringtone.
With last week's 5-2 move, it looked as though "My Boo," the duet from Usher and Alicia Keys, was ripe for the Hot 100's top slot, but it stays in the same place for now. In fact, aside from Destiny's Child's "Lose My Breath," which rises 7-5 and Lil' Flip's "Sunshine" featuring Lea, which falls 5-7, the remainder of the top 10 stays put.

Also making notable gains this week are Anthony Hamilton's "Charlene" (41-31), Fabolous' "Breathe" (60-50), Nelly's "Flap Your Wings" (65-54) and Chingy's "Balla Baby" (67-56).
Nelly also scores this week's top debut at No. 58 with "Over and Over" featuring Tim McGraw. It becomes the rapper's fourth track on the Hot 100, joining the aforementioned "My Place" and "Flap Your Wings," as well as "Tilt Ya Head Back" featuring Christina Aguilera, which is No. 78.

(No. 93), Mannie Fresh's "Real Big" (No. 98), the Game's "Westside Story" featuring 50 Cent (No. 99) and Vanessa Carlton's "White Houses" (No. 100).
