Billboard Hot 100 Analysis, June 2, 2007

1. Makes Me Wonder - Maroon 5

Maroon 5 reclaim the #1 spot from T-Pain and Yung Joc, making "Makes Me Wonder" the longest-running #1 single of the nine we've had this year so far with 3 non-consecutive weeks at the top. It's the longest stay since Beyoncé spent 10 weeks at #1 with "Irreplaceable."

5. Home - Daughtry

Daughtry lands his second top 10 single this week with "Home," moving up a forceful 8 spots. It's also his second top 5 hit; last single "It's Not Over" peaked at #4. Daughtry becomes the third American Idol alumnus to land two top 5 singles following Clay Aiken and Kelly Clarkson.

8. Before He Cheats - Carrie Underwood

Speaking of American Idol alumns, Carrie Underwood scores her third top 10 hit with "Before He Cheats." Originally a country hit last year, the song has been renewed by its great popularity now at pop radio. It also earns this distinction of--at 38 weeks--holding the record for the longest journey of any single to land in the top 10.

9. Summer Love - Justin Timberlake

Justin Timberlake scores his 6th top 10 hit (7th if you count his appearance on Timbaland's "Give It to Me," currently #4) with "Summer Love." All five of his previous top 10 hits made it the top 5, and the last three (or four, again with "Give It to ME) went all the way to #1.

12. What I've Done - Linkin Park
14. Thnks fr th Mmrs - Fall Out Boy

Linkin Park and Fall Out Boy position themselves to enter the top 10 soon, moving up 11 and 10 spots respectively with their latest singles. "What I've Done" actually debuted on the chart at #7 on its first week sales, and then fell to #28 two weeks ago.

21. Big Girls Don't Cry - Fergie

Fergie makes an impressive entry into the top 40, up 20 spots with her fourth solo single, "Big Girls Don't Cry." Two of Fergie's singles have hit #1 ("London Bridge" and "Glamorous") and "Fergalicious" hit #2.

33. Do You Know (The Ping Pong Song) - Enrique Iglesias

After a 5 year gap, Enrique Iglesias returns to the top 40 this week. He launched his English-singing career spectacularly in 1999 with #1 hit "Bailamos," followed in 2000 with another #1, "Be With You." His momentum waned a bit on his second album, but he did land in the top 10 late in 2001 with "Hero." His third album though failed to generate any Hot 100 singles, despite scoring top 5 hit in Britain with "Not in Love."

I hate to admit it, but "Big Girls Don't Cry" is growing on me. Before I heard it, I thought she was doing a cover of the Frankie Valli song. Wouldn't that be a hoot!
