T.I. Fends Off Beyonce To Land Number 1

Posted By on December 1, 2008

    On Thanksgiving Day, T.I. started his fifth week at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with "Live Your Life" featuring Rihanna. TIP does have competition though as Beyonce is close behind jumping from 28th to 2nd with "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)" after selling 204,000 digital downloads. Beyonce also holds the number 3 spot with "If I Were A Boy" while T.I.'s other single, "Whatever You Like," dropped from number 2 to number 4.

    Other notables on this weeks charts include Kanye West and his "Love Lockdown" moving from number 9 to the 6th spot and Ne-Yo's "Miss Independent" moved from 11 to number 9. Akon's "Right Now (Na Na Na)" dropped two spots to land at number 10.
