Britney Spears is Almost No. 1
Britney Spears’ “Womanizer” jumps seven places but is barely fended off by The Script’s “The Man Who Can’t Be Moved” on topping the Hot 100. ‘Moved’ starts a fifth week atop and is now one of the longest staying songs at the pole spot. “Womanizer” peaks at No. 2 and is Spears’ highest peaking song yet. The single surpasses Spears’ previous top ten hit “Piece of Me” which peaked at No. 6 back in February.
David Archuleta spends another week inside the top three with “Crush.” Artists Stand Up To Cancer and Bamboo hold at No. 4 and No. 5 respectively.
Beyonce scores her first solo top ten hit with “If I Were a Boy,” peaking at No. 6. The song jumps 31 places after debuting at No. 37 last week. The huge jump is the fourth biggest jump to the top ten, only behind the records of The Pussycat Dolls, Madonna and Kyla. The single is this week’s top gainer as well.
Secondhand Serenade’s “Fall for You” descends 6-7, as The Ting Tings’ “Shut Up and Let Me Go” crushes 3-8. Sponge Cola’s “Puso” drops to No. 9 while Demi Lovato’s “This is Me” featuring Joe Jonas holds at No. 10.
The top debut this week belongs to Christina Milian’s “Us Against the World.” ‘World,’ the first single from Milian’s upcoming 2009 album, opens at No. 65.
Also new this week, are two songs from High School Musical 3: Senior Year. “Right Here, Right Now” and “Now or Never” debuts at No. 73 and No. 84 respectively.
