T.I. Tops Single Chart
In addition to its success at CHR/Top 40, "Live Your Life" is also currently sitting pretty atop the Rhythmic airplay chart for the fourth consecutive week, followed at #2 by T.I.'s own "Whatever You Like," the RIAA 2x platinum certified first single from "PAPER TRAIL." The latter held the #1 position for nine straight weeks before ceding the top spot to "Live Your Live," giving T.I. sole possession of #1 for 13 consecutive weeks.
Furthermore, a new single, "Dead and Gone (Feat. Justin Timberlake)," has just begun its ascent up the Rhythmic chart, debuting this week at #35 with-a-bullet. A companion video clip is currently in production, with a premiere date to be announced shortly.
"Live Your Life" made history last October, climbing to #1 on Billboard's "Hot 100" from the previous week's ranking at #80 – the biggest-ever one-week leap to the top. The success of "Live Your Life" shattered the previous record for largest ascent to #1 – a feat set just six weeks prior by T.I.'s own "Whatever You Like." That track rocketed to #1 from #71 the week of September 6th and remained there until being replaced by "Live Your Life." This remarkable achievement establishes T.I. as the first artist to replace himself at #1 since Usher in 2004.
