Maroon 5 Takes Katy Perry's Number-One Spot On Pop Chart
September 1st, 2011 10:02am EDT
Maroon 5 and Christina Aguilera have ended Katy Perry's record-breaking run at the top of the U.S. pop chart.
Their "Moves Like Jagger" collaboration has taken over the number one spot thanks to a download surge.
It's Maroon 5's second number one - the band spent three weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100 in 2007 with "Makes Me Wonder." Aguilera was last on top back in 2001 with another collaboration - "Lady Marmalade" with Lil' Kim, Pink, Mya and Missy Elliot.
It's also a great week for the band's frontman Adam Levine as he enters the top 10 at 10 as the guest artist on Gym Class Heroes' "Stereo Hearts." He becomes the first artist in the chart's 53-year history to reach number one as part of a group and enter the top 10 as a soloist in the same week.
Perry's "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)," which became the fifth single from her "Teenage Dream" album to reach number one on the Hot 100, drops to five after spending two weeks on top.
Another former number one, LMFAO's "Party Rock Anthem," stays put at two on the new chart, while Foster The People's "Pumped Up Kicks" rises up to three and Bad Meets Evil's "Lighters" is also on the rise at four.
