Shakira Rapidly Slides Up And Down The #1 Pole For Another Week

Shakira's still straddling the big, hard #1 position on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart this week with "Hips Don't Lie." Looks like some tough competition is on its way in the weeks to come, though, particularly from ho-hum Idol grunt, Taylor Hicks. Meanwhile, Nelly Furtado inches up one more notch to #2. Yay! We came so close to having Nelly be at the top of the charts both here and in the UK. Alas, 'twas not to be. Futher down the Top 20, Christina Aguilera has this week's
"hot shot debut" at #19 with "Ain't No Other Man." And look -- Xtina's all classy now!

Another classy blonde is Natasha Bedingfield, whose new single, um, "Single," debuts on the Hot 100 this week at #72. "Single" is the third release off her album Unwritten, but it was actually her very first UK single two years ago. Over there, it peaked at #3. The only other UK single Natasha has yet to put out here is "I Bruise Easily."

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Hips Don't Lie" - Shakira feat. Wyclef Jean *2 weeks*
2. "Promiscuous" - Nelly Furtado feat. Timbaland *airplay gainer*
3. "It's Goin' Down" - Young Joc *sales gainer*
4. "Ridin'" - Chamillionaire feat. Krayzie Bone
5. "Bad Day" - Daniel Powter
6. "Where'd You Go" - Fort Minor feat. Holly Brook
7. "Unfaithful" - Rihanna
8. "Me & U" - Cassie
9. "Snap Yo Fingers" - Lil Jon feat. E-40 & Sean Paul
10. "Dani California" - Red Hot Chili Peppers

    ew, I thought Natty Beding's third single was going to be The One That Got Away! :( It's getting played at the radio stations here, at least. I wrote her off many many UK years ago after she released Single, because that song just bores me to acid reflux. :(
