"Nothin' On You" is currently the #1 single in the country, according to Billboard's "Hot 100," marking B.o.B as the 4th solo male artist to top the tally with a debut single since October 2009. The track – which is also standing tall at #1 on iTunes' "Top Singles" chart – is exploding at multi-format radio outlets nationwide. "Nothin' On You" is #1 on Billboard's "Rhythmic Airplay" chart – the fastest rising debut track since Drake's 2009 smash, "Best I Ever Had" – while also drawing top 5 airplay at both Urban and CHR/Top 40 outlets.
"Airplanes (Feat. Hayley Williams of Paramore)," the recently released next single from "B.o.B PRESENTS: THE ADVENTURES OF BOBBY RAY," is following hot on the heels of "Nothin' On You," debuting this week at #12 on Billboard's "Hot 100" while also standing strong as the #2 best-seller on iTunes' "Top Singles" chart. What's more, the track's superstar-packed sequel, "Airplanes, Part II (Feat. Eminem & Hayley Williams)," is streaming now at B.o.B's own www.bobatl.com.
An additional new album track – "Bet I (Feat. T.I. and Playboy Tre)" – has just gone on sale at the iTunes Store, where it has proven an instant hip-hop hit. A sure bet to join "Nothin' On You" and "Airplanes" on next week's "Hot 100," the track has already burst into the Top 10 on iTunes' "Top Hip Hop/Rap Songs" chart (which is currently topped by "Nothin' On You" and "Airplanes" respectively).

Having spent much of last year sharing stages with such like-minded artists as Asher Roth, Kid Cudi, and Shwayze, B.o.B is currently heralding the release of "B.o.B PRESENTS: THE ADVENTURES OF BOBBY RAY" by supporting 1st & 15th/Atlantic labelmate Lupe Fiasco's "Steppin Laser Tour." The dates – many of which are already long sold out – continue through early May.
