Billboard's Top 10 Singles: "Irreplaceable" Is (Finally) Replaced

After 10 weeks at #1, Beyonce's "Irreplaceable" finally cedes the top slot to Nelly Furtado's "Say It Right." Next week, we might see a jump in singles for the artists who performed on the Grammys, though they tend to affect album sales more. But go to iTunes and you can find the Dixie Chicks suddenly at #1 with "Not Ready To Make Nice," Corinne Bailey Rae up there with "Put Your Records On" and so on. Outside the Top 40, Mims' single "This Is Why I'm Hot" jumps to #46. I just saw a poster ad for the song on the streets of NYC and it was a first: the billboard boasted that "This Is Why I'm Hot" is the number one ringtone in the country. Also, Sheryl Crowe's interminable Super Bowl ad for hair coloring sends her cover of Buddy Holly's "Not Fade Away" to #78. Proceeds go to breast cancer research. For a complete chart breakdown, go to Billboard.
