MIMS placed his single "This Is Why I'm Hot" at the first spot of Billboard 100 and knocks out Justin Timberlake to no. 3.
On Thursday, March 1, New York rapper MIMS has topped Billboard 100 with the song "This Is Why I'm Hot" after leaping as great as 31 positions straight ahead to no.1. The leap is recorded as the third biggest in the chart's history as well as scoring the first #1 single for its label, the Capitol Records. The song has also created quite a stir in numerous radio stations with a total spins up to 1000 per week and absorbed a growing 59 million listeners.
With the sudden shoot up, he knocked out Justin Timberlake's single "What Goes Around...Comes Around" out of its seat and put it in the third place. Meanwhile the song "Don't Matter" by Akon is trailing behind MIMS at no. 2 before tying his spot at no. 5 a week before. The third topper last week Nelly Furtado with "Say It Right" slides down to no. 6 this week while Ludacris' "Runaway Love" featuring Mary J. Blige falls a little bit steeper at no. 9.
Still in the chart, Gwen Stefani's "The Sweet Escape" featuring Akon and Gym Class Heroes' "Cupid's Chokehold" featuring Patrick Stump have both raised their spot up to #4 and #5 respectively. In the mean time, the newcomer DAUGHTRY through the single "It's Not Over" remains comfortably at no 7 followed by "This Ain't A Scene, It's An Arms Race" by Fall Out Boy. Also, soaring quickly from no. 52 to no.10, is Rihanna's "Break It Off" featuring Sean Paul, finishing off the Top 10 chart of the week.
