Plain White T's "Delilah" unseats Rihanna on Hot 100

NEW YORK (Billboard) - Plain White T’s earn their first Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 as “Hey There Delilah” continues its staircase climb, stepping from No. 2.

The song has progressed one place each week since it leaped from No. 16 to No. 6 in mid-June. In doing so, it unseats Rihanna’s “Umbrella,” which held the top spot for seven weeks. “Delilah” is also Hollywood Records’ first-ever No. 1 on the Hot 100.

With “Umbrella” falling to No. 2, Fergie’s “Big Girls Don’t Cry” remains at No. 3 for a second week, while Shop Boyz’ “Party Like a Rockstar” holds at No. 4. Timbaland’s “The Way I Are” featuring Keri Hilson is up from No. 6 to No. 5, while T-Pain’s “Buy U a Drank (Shawty Snappin’)” featuring Yung Joc slides one rung to No. 6.

Hurricane Chris’ “A Bay Bay” climbs one notch to a new peak of No. 7, and T-Pain’s “Bartender” earns greatest airplay gainer honors with an increase from No. 10 to No. 8. The top 10 is rounded out by Maroon 5’s “Makes Me Wonder” (falling from seventh spot to No. 9) and Fabolous’ “Make Me Better” featuring Ne-Yo (climbing from No. 11 to No. 10).

The chart’s greatest digital gainer is Aly & AJ’s “Potential Breakup Song,” which soars from 48th on the list to No. 23. The top debut this week goes to Collipark/Interscope newcomer Soulja Boy’s “Crank That (Soulja Boy)” at No. 47.

Fantasia’s “When I See U” remains No. 1 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs for a fourth week. Prince debuts there at No. 59 with “Future Baby Mama,” his highest entry since 1999.

Big & Rich hold on at the top of Hot Country Songs with “Lost in This Moment” for a second week, while Rascal Flatts jumps 24-19 with their new single, “Take Me There,” the chart’s greatest airplay gainer in its second week.

On Hot Latin Songs, Enrique Iglesias returns to No. 1 with a three-position climb for “Dimelo,” thanks to a 22 percent audience increase. Last week’s chart-topper, Marco Antonio Solis’ “Ojala,” slides to No. 4.

Linkin Park’s “What I’ve Done” remains a juggernaut on the Modern Rock chart, beginning its 15th week at No. 1 there. Ozzy Osbourne leads Mainstream Rock for a fourth week with “I Don’t Wanna Stop.”
