Akon Scores Second No. 1 Hit From ‘Konvicted’

Akon lands his second No. 1 Hot 100 hit on the album "Konvicted" as "Don't Matter" jumps 3-1 on the chart, where it is the fastest growing track at radio for a fifth week. The song follows "I Wanna Love You," which held No. 1 for two weeks in December. Another track from the album, "Smack That," peaked at No. 2 in November after making what was then the largest jump (95-7) in the history of the Hot 100.

That distinction now belongs to Beyonce and Shakira's "Beautiful Liar," which rockets 94-3 thanks to digital sales of 150,000 copies. The track comes from a new edition of Beyonce's "B-Day" album, due April 3.

Last week's Hot 100 No. 1, Fergie's "Glamorous," falls to No. 2, while Mims' former chart-topper "This Is Why I'm Hot" drops 2-4. Gym Class Heroes' "Cupid's Chokehold" featuring Patrick Stump is down 4-5, while Gwen Stefani's "The Sweet Escape" featuring Akon slides 5-6. Avril Lavigne's "Girlfriend" rebounds 8-7, followed by Rich Boy's "Throw Some D's" featuring Polow Da Don, down 6-8, Justin Timberlake's "What Goes Around … Comes Around," which holds at No. 9, and Daughtry's "It's Not Over," which drops 7-10.

Katharine McPhee's "Over It" jumps 49-29 on the Hot 100 as the chart's greatest digital gainer. The song was featured on a recent episode of MTV's "The Hills," prompting online sales to jump 60% to 40,000. The chart's top debut comes from crooner Michael Buble's "Everything" at No. 46, his best Hot 100 showing to date. The artist's next 143/Reprise album, "Call Me Irresponsible," arrives May 1.

Also new this week is former "American Idol" contestant Elliot Yamin's "Wait for You" at No. 67, Big & Rich's "Lost in this Moment" at No. 72, Joss Stone's "Tell Me 'Bout It" at No. 83, Pink's "Who Knew" at No. 95 and Emerson Drive's "Moments" at No. 97.

 
Robin Thicke's "Lost Without U" is No. 1 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs for a seventh straight week. "Glamorous" opens at No. 59 on that chart, Fergie's best debut there either as a solo artist or a member of the Black Eyed Peas.

Kenny Chesney's "Beer in Mexico" begins a third week atop Hot Country Songs, where Bon Jovi has a big arrival at No. 39 with "(You Want To) Make a Memory." The group reached No. 1 on this chart in 2006 with the Sugarland collaboration "Who Says You Can't Go Home," but here scores the highest non-collaborative debut by a non-core act in the 17 years since Nielsen Broadcast Data Systems has provided tracking.

Juan Luis Guerra Y 440's "La Llave de Mi Corazon" is No. 1 on Hot Latin Songs for a second week, while Lady Sovereign's "Love Me or Hate Me (F*** You!!!)" jumps 2-1 to overtake the Hot Dance Songs/Club Play tally.

Billboard's rock charts are unchanged, with 30 Seconds To Mars' "From Yesterday" at No. 1 for a second week on Modern Rock and Breaking Benjamin's "Breath" holding down Mainstream Rock for a third.
