Billboard Hot 100, 11/14/2008

1. Live Your Life - T.I. Featuring Rihanna
2. Whatever You Like - T.I.

T.I. switches places with himself for the second time in the last month. For the October 10th edition of the Hot 100, "Live Your Life" replaced "Whatever You Like," and now it does so again just 1 month later. This is the first time an artist has replaced himself at #1 twice with the same single. Interestingly, "Whatever You Like" never replaced "Live Your Life," since Britney's "Womanizer" was #1 the week after "Live Your Life's" last stay at the top. This is T.I.'s 9th week at #1 this year, putting him just 1 week behind Flo-Rida, who spent 10 weeks at the top at the beginning of the year with "Low."

9. Right Now (Na Na Na) - Akon

Akon moves up 5 spots to score his 12th top 10 hit, earning this week's Sales Gainer. I actually rather like this song--I especially like the Blade Runner-esque synths.

10. I'm Yours - Jason Mraz

Jason Mraz holds at #10 this week. This song I rather don't like. annoying.

11. You're Not Sorry - Taylor Swift

Another month, another new single from Taylor Swift. This is the first released in the last 4 months to miss the top 10. Poor girl. It is the fourth single released from her second album Fearless, which is out (finally) next week.

19. Viva la Vida - Coldplay

"Viva la Vida" moves up 3 spots to #19 this week. Anyone know why it's moving back up? It's now been on the Hot 100 for 6 months.

We'll see. It's really competitive right now. I've been thinking about what contenders might be #1 for the rest of the year..."Womanizer" is one, but there's "If I Were a Boy," "Greatest Day," "Rain on Your Parade," and "Hot N Cold" too.

OMG I LUV "Hot N Cold", that and "Boy" seem to get massive loads of airplay here, (kinda annoying)
