T.I.’s ‘Whatever You Like’ Makes Billboard History

Published: Thursday 28th Aug 2008 by Sam
Rapper as made Billboard chart history this week with the first single from his forthcoming ‘Paper Trail LP, ‘Whatever You Like’ :

T.I. establishes the mark for biggest jump to the top of the Billboard Hot 100, as “Whatever You Like” soars 71-1 in its third week on the list.

A No. 1 opening on Hot Digital Songs with debut-week sales of 205,000 downloads is the cause for the record-setting Hot 100 move, which surpasses the 64-1 jump taken by Maroon 5’s “Makes Me Wonder” in May 2007.

“Like” is the rapper’s first No. 1 as a lead artist (he was featured on Justin Timberlake’s 2006 chart-topper, “My Love”) and his opening-week digital sum is the best by a rap track since Nielsen SoundScan began compiling download data in 2003. {Source}

Conratualtions to ol’ Clifford. Having released a bevy of more deserving singles, though, I would have preferred the likes of ‘Bring Em’ Out’ and ‘What You Know’ to have achieved the same success. Anyway, enough of my lil’ rant…a #1 is a #1. More power to him…

Any thoughts?

    It’s a good song, I bet I’ll start to like it more as I listen to and hear it more now. Wonder if Pop radio formats will now play the song, as you know they did for “lollipop.”

    I’m really surprised about this because I don’t think the song is that hot at all. This dude was practically trying to sing at the beginning of the track. Wassup wit that?

    A #1 is a #1, yet when Rihanna gets a number one, she doesn’t deserve it. Samuel, sit down, sit down.

    Congratulations Tip.

    He’s soooo arrogant these days. I don’t like him as much as I used to…you know…when he was more humble and hungry.

    Whatever You Like is T.I.’s second single from Paper Trail. The first single was No Matter What.
