Mims And Rihanna Make Leaps And Bounds

Hoo-ray! Another rapper going off about how bling fly he is and how much cash he got tops the chart! Mims' "This Is Why I'm Hot" is now the third consecutive #1 in three weeks on Billboard's Hot 100 Singles chart. And while the single impressively moved up from #32 to the top, even more impressive is Rihanna's jump from #52 to #10 with "Break It Off," her duet with Sean Paul. This was my favorite off her last album, with its frenetic dance-pop/reggae beat. Outside the Top 10, snoozey Robin Thicke continues his slow climb with "Lost Without U," at #18 this week.

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "This Is Why I'm Hot" - Mims *1 week* *airplay gainer*
2. "Don't Matter" - Akon *airplay gainer*
3. "What Goes Around...Comes Around" - Justin Timberlake
4. "The Sweet Escape" - Gwen Stefani feat. Akon
5. "Cupid's Chokehold" - Gym Class Heroes feat. Patrick Stump
6. "Say It Right" - Nelly Furtado
7. "It's Not Over" - Daughtry
8. "This Ain't A Scene, It's An Arms Race" - Fall Out Boy
9. "Runaway Love" - Ludacris feat. Mary J. Blige
10. "Break It Off" - Rihanna feat. Sean Paul

New poll up now in the sidebar.

    Mims being #1 is an embarrassment. Akon following him would be doubly so. My rooting interest as of right now is for "The Sweet Escape" which is kinda stupid but is at least better than any of the other reasonable contenders for #1. Rooting for "Break It Off" too.

    Is it wrong that I'm starting to find Rihanna very attractive.

    Don't confuse being attracted to her with wanting to wear her thong, starlet.
