Joe makes it a second week at No. 1 on The Billboard Hot 100 this week with his single “Stutter” featuring Mystikal. The R&B singer continues to fight off Shaggy’s “It Wasn’t Me” featuring Ricardo “Rikrok” Ducent, at No. 2. “Stutter” is also at No. 1 for the fourth straight week on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart.
Another Shaggy track continues its forward motion, as “Angel” featuring Rayvon jumps 7-5 as the fastest-growing track at radio. The chart’s fastest-growing track at retail this week belongs to Dream’s “He Loves You Not,” moving from 11-10. S Club 7’s “Never Had a Dream Come True” is the top debut at No. 61, followed closely by Vertical Horizon’s “Best I Ever Had (Grey Sky Morning)” and Nelly Furtado’s “I’m Like A Bird,” at slots 65 and 66, respectively.
As reported yesterday, Shaggy’s “Hotshot” (MCA) makes it a third week at No. 1 on The Billboard 200, easily outdistancing the Beatles’ “1” (Capitol) at No. 2 on the strength of more than 293,000 copies sold, according to SoundScan. Only three albums in the top 40 of The Billboard 200 posted a decline in sales, as the combination of Valentine’s Day, President’s Day, and pre-Grammy hype helped move product last week.
Dido’s “No Angel” (Arista) moves from 6-4 to reach its highest position on the chart to date. Jill Scott continues to benefit from her Grammy nomination as best new artist, as her “Who is Jill Scott? Words And Sounds Vol. 1” (Hidden Beach/Epic) shoots from 27-22. Scott’s album is also the fastest-growing set on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.
The soundtrack to the Coen Brothers’ “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” (Mercury) holds at No. 1 on the Top Country Albums chart, while Toby Keith’s “You Shouldn’t Kiss Me Like This” moves into the No. 1 slot on the Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart, ousting Keith Urban’s “But For The Grace Of God.”
On Billboard’s Modern Rock Tracks chart, Incubus’ “Drive” reaches No. 1 in its 14th week, displacing Crazy Town’s “Butterfly.”
