Billboard Hot 100, Week Ending (27/12/08)

1. Beyonce - Single Ladies
2. T.I. featuring Rihanna - Live Your Life

For the second time in a row Beyonce's, "Single Ladies", and T.I.'s, "Live Your Life", swap positions on the chart. "Single Ladies", received a significant amount of airplay additional to over 155k in digital sales, pushing it back up to #1. "Live Your Life", still rules Rhythmic Radio.

4. Britney Spears - Circus
6. Britney Spears - Womanizer

Britney Spears' "Circus", takes a step down to #4 but Womanizer shoots up #6 -- the song peaked at #1 2 months ago. "Womanizer", claimed the top spot at top 40 radio 2 days ago, making it her first ince '04's, "Everytime". Unfortunately I'll predict "Circus", will continue to descend as airplay for song is still pretty weak. Last week it was the first time Britney had had 2 singles inside the top 10.

7. Kanye West - Heartless
10. Love Lockdown

Alongside Beyonce, Britney and T.I., Kanye West also has 2 singles inside the top 10 with, "Heartless", and, "Love Lockdown"; As "Love Lockdown", continues to descend down the chart, "Heartless", gains way by rocketing from 16-7 it's 'Airplay Gainer' of the week.

34. Brandy - Right Here

Brandy's, "Right Here", makes significant rise, rising 53-34, this is probably due to the release of her 5th album Human this week, the album debut at #15 becoming her lowest debut since her '94 self titled album, debut at #20. "Right Here", is her highest charting single since 2002's, "Full Moon", which peaked at #18. The song is also doing well at top 40 radio, it's at #25 with 50% increase in spins.
