B.o.B Dethrones Rihanna on Singles Chart

B.o.B

After spending five consecutive weeks at No. 1, a newcomer has displaced Rihanna from the top of the chart.

B.o.B’s debut single “Nothin’ on You” featuring Bruno Mars jumps 2-1 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming the Atlanta musician’s first No. 1. Rihanna’s “Rude Boy” previously held the spot, falling to the runner-up position this week.

“Nothin’ on You” is not the only song from B.o.B making moves. His follow-up single “Airplanes” featuring Hayley Williams of Paramore debuts at No. 12 and holds second place on the iTunes Singles chart, while his album B.o.B Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray is set to arrive next Tuesday.

Monica also lands her first No. 1 in more than 13 years on the Adult R&B airplay chart as “Everything to Me” shifts 2-1. Her last Adult R&B chart-topper, “For You I Will,” spent a week at No. 1 in April 1997.

    Get the FUCK outta here nigga. B.o.B. is dope but that nigga aint no drake. He’ll have a few decent hits but noone will copt his album. They just purchase his hot singles. His album will move maybe 80,000 units and He MAY debut # 1, but he lucky Drake aint releasing same day. GTFOH!

    First Off Congratulations To B.o.B., and Bruno Mars For Their 1st Number One… I Understand Why That Song Would Be A Number One Hit… It’s About A Guy Telling His Girl, That No Girl In The World Got Nothing On Her, and That’s Best Message To People In Relationships… And Second But Not Last, Congratulations To Monica For Her Number One Hit With “Everything To Me”… At First I Didn’t Like It, But Now It’s One Of My Favorite Monica Songs… B.o.B., Bruno Mars, & Monica For 2010.

    Hip hop is dead, please stop reaching. Obliviously the understanding of creative hip hop is so limited to what mainstream is pushing, smh.

    And why the hell would y’all even bring up Drake in this post. He ain’t got shit to do with B.O.B or Monica. That’s young ppl’s problems. Y’all like to create these fake ass competitions with artist. B.O.B is B.O.B and Drake is Drake. LEAVE IT THE HELL ALONE. Congrats to both Mo and B.O.B
