Akon scores his first No. 1 hit on the Hot 100 this week as "I Wanna Love You" featuring Snoop Dogg explodes 17-1.
R&B artist Akon scores a new record. The singer from Senegal has his first No. 1 hit on the Hot 100 this week as his single "I Wanna Love You" featuring Snoop Dogg bounces 16 places from last week position, to directly become the No. 1 track on the chart. His other song, "Smack That" featuring Eminem, holds at No. 2 on the chart as well.
On top of all, Akon's latest effort "Konvicted" opened at No. 2 on The Billboard 200 for the week ended Nov 22nd, selling 284,000 copies in its first week of release. With such record on the single charts, it is safe to say we can expect Akon's LP will climb up to number one next week. On the Hot 100, Beyonce Knowles' "Irreplaceable" climbs one to No. 3, followed after by Justin Timberlake's "My Love" at No. 4.
The chart's next best bows are Stacy Ferguson's "Fergalicious" at the 5th spot, Hinder's "Lips Of An Angel" at No. 6, ahead of Ludacris' "Money Maker" at No. 7. The Fray's "How To Save A Life" is at No. 8, while Snow Patrol's "Chasing Cars" is at 9th. Finishing the Top 10 is Bow Wow's "Shortie Like Mine".
