Maroon 5 and Christina Aguilera's 'Moves Like Jagger' Struts To No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100
August 31, 2011   |    By Gary Trust, New York

Maroon 5's "Moves Like Jagger," featuring Christina Aguilera, struts to the top of the Billboard Hot 100, rolling 4-1 with Airplay Gainer honors for a third consecutive week. Maroon 5 lead singer Adam Levine makes chart headlines of his own, as well, thanks to a leap into the top 10 as a guest on Gym Class Heroes' "Stereo Hearts."

"Jagger" returns for a second week at No. 1 on Digital Songs (2-1) with 217,000 downloads sold (up 6%), according to Nielsen SoundScan. On Radio Songs, the collaboration darts 15-11 with 72 million all-format audience impressions (up 20%), according to Nielsen BDS.

The song marks Maroon 5's second Hot 100 No. 1. The band previously reigned for three weeks in 2007 with "Makes Me Wonder." For Aguilera, the return to the chart's apex ends an even greater hiatus. She had last ruled alongside Lil' Kim, Mya and P!nk on "Lady Marmalade" for five weeks in 2001. "Jagger" is Aguilera's fifth Hot 100 No. 1. She banked three leaders from her self-titled debut album in 1999-2000: "Genie in a Bottle," "What a Girl Wants" and "Come On Over Baby (All I Want Is You)."

The accolades don't end, however, for Maroon 5's frontman Adam Levine. He concurrently enters the Hot 100's top 10 (15-10) as a featured artist on Gym Class Heroes' "Stereo Hearts." The track vaults 7-3 on Digital Songs (146,000, up 28%) and 37-23 on Radio Songs (40 million, up 28%).

The ascensions of "Jagger" and "Stereo" grant Levine an unprecedented (and certainly quirky) Hot 100 achievement: he becomes the first artist in the chart's 53-year history to reach No. 1 as part of a group and enter the top 10 as a soloist in the same week.

"Jagger" dethrones Katy Perry's "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" from the Hot 100 pinnacle after two weeks at No. 1. The song - the record-setting fifth No. 1 from her album "Teenage Dream" <http://www.billboard.com/#/news/katy-perry-makes-hot-100-history-ties-michael-1005318432.story>  - plummets to No. 5, owed largely to a 4-14 fall on Digital Songs (85,000, down 45%). The song does, however, return (2-1) for a third week atop Radio Songs (133 million, down 4%).

In between "Jagger" and "Friday" on the Hot 100, LMFAO's former six-week No. 1 "Party Rock Anthem," featuring Lauren Bennett and GoonRock, holds at No. 2; Foster the People's "Pumped Up Kicks" roars 7-3; and, Bad Meets Evil's "Lighters," featuring Bruno Mars, rises 6-4.

Rounding out the rest of the Hot 100's 10 are Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass" (5-6); Lil Wayne's "How to Love" (8-7); OneRepublic's "Good Life" (9-8); and, Pibull's former No. 1 "Give Me Everything," featuring Ne-Yo, Afrojack and Nayer (11-9).

On the doorstep of the Hot 100's top 10, Rihanna claims Digital Gainer honors with "Cheers (Drink to That)," which soars 17-11. The song bounds 15-5 on Digital Songs (131,000, up 68%), while lifting 19-17 on Radio Songs (52 million, up 13%).

Two titles that make lofty leaps into the Hot 100's top 20 will likely sport further gains next week following buzz-generating appearances on Sunday night's (Aug. 28) MTV Video Music Awards. Lady Gaga's "You and I" charges 35-16, up 92% in digital sales (to 109,000) and 50% in airplay (to 32 million). Adele's "Someone Like You" similarly soars 34-19 on the Hot 100 with gains in sales (95,000 downloads, up 68%) and radio play (29 million, up 41%).

Eight songs debut on the Hot 100, led by "Hell on Heels" (No. 55) by Miranda Lambert side project Pistol Annies. The song is the title cut from the trio's debut album, which shoots onto the Billboard 200 at No. 5.

Game, who takes the Billboard 200's top spot with "The R.E.D. Album," enters the Hot 100 at No. 100 with a cut from the set, "Martians Vs Goblins."

All charts, including the Hot 100, Digital Songs and Radio Songs will be refreshed tomorrow (Sept. 1) on Billboard.com.
