Jay Sean: What Goes “Down” Might Come Up

This week’s installment in the sorta-halfhearted scuffle between songs that are biding time at the top of the Hot 100 until the Black Eyed Peas return to the No. 1 slot for the kajillionth week this year: Jay Sean’s “Down” reclaimed the top spot after last week’s No. 1, Britney Spears’ Real Dollish “3,” sagged in sales by 33% and fell to No. 5. (It’s gaining in airplay, though, so don’t count her out just yet.) Rounding out the top 5 is a trio of familiar tunes to any chart-watcher: Jason DeRulo’s “Whatcha Say” (No. 2), Miley Cyrus’ “Party In The U.S.A.” (No. 3), and the Jay-Z/Rihanna/Kanye collab “Run This Town” (No. 4).
