'DOWN' IS UP: What goes up must come down. In this case, it's because of "Down."

After a record 26-week reign with "I Gotta Feeling" (the last 14 weeks) and "Boom Boom Pow" (12 weeks directly prior), the Black Eyed Peas cede the Billboard Hot 100 summit at last, as Jay Sean celebrates his first No. 1 with a 2-1 ascent for "Down."

Tomorrow in Chart Beat, we'll focus on the song's Hot 100 coronation. Today, there's more than enough to focus on regarding another chart that "Down" crowns.

Sean's career-opening single likewise rises 2-1 on the Pop Songs radio airplay chart. Featured artist Lil Wayne also nets his first No. 1 on the tally.

Sean is just the ninth male artist to conquer Pop Songs with his debut entry dating to the survey's 1992 inception. More than half of the select group has done so, however, since 2005, and the last artist in the exclusive club - Flo Rida - earned the honor with what would become the format's top song of 2008.............

If you haven't heard the new Monica already, then you are definitely missing out! She is back stronger and wiser than ever! She watched her loved one kill himself in front of her and has had many more challenges, but she overcame them. I love the way that she has used her pain as a motivating force to come harder in her music to send out a more inspiring and meaningful message! "I'm still standing" is the best! Check Monica out! She is bacccckkkkk!
