B.o.B Dethrones Rihanna on Singles Chart

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.
