Chart Watch: Jay Sean Brings "Down" Black Eyed Peas

As was reported yesterday, British R&B singer Jay Sean knocks the Black Eyed Peas out of the penthouse of the Hot 100. "I've Gotta Feelin'" fell and fell hard. As Sean's "Down" featuring Lil Wayne moved 2-1, "Feelin'" dropped 1-5.

Was Sean's triumphant arrival to No. 1 a result of his song exploding in popularity or was it, as was speculated last week, the Black Eyed Peas simply fizzling out? It seems to be the former as the battle for No. 1 this week was the hardest fought in six years.

The point margin between "Down", the artist formerly known as Hannah Montana's "Party In The U.S.A.", and Jay-Z's "Run This Town" featuring Kanye West and Rihanna was razor thin.

At No. 11 is former 17 Tracks Summer Mix artist Owl City whose Postal Service lite "Fireflies" moves up from No. 24. This was a song that made the mix because 1. It was a free iTunes download and 2. It sounded like Postal Service for junior high girls. Now that its actually becoming popular, I regret putting it on the mix. Oh well.

1. "Down" - Jay Sean feat. Lil Wayne (1 week at No. 1)
2. "Party In The U.S.A." -Miley Cyrus
3. "Run This Town" - Jay-Z feat. Kanye West & Rihanna
4. "Whatcha Say" - Jason DeRulo
5. "I've Gotta Feelin'" - Black Eyed Peas
6. "Paparazzi" - Lady Gaga
7. "You Belong With Me" - Taylor Swift
8. "Obsessed" - Mariah Carey
9. "Use Somebody" - Kings of Leon
10. "Empire State of Mind" - Jay-Z feat. Alicia Keys
