R&B/Pop Music Chart - May 7, 2012


*Brandy's "Put It Down" is catapulted from number one on our R&B/Pop Chart to the peak of our Top Hip Hop and R&B chart this week, and Jay Sean's "I'm All Yours" makes the leap along with it. Taking their place on top are Far East Movement's "Dirty Bass" (a new addition) and Flo Rida's "Whistle" (formerly fourth).

*Also new to the chart, Usher's "Lemme See," Leron Young's "Perfect Girl" and iFFY The Bad Man's "Ain't No Reason" claim third, 18th and 20th.

*B.o.B's "So Hard to Breathe" and Nelly Furtado's "Big Hoops" tumble from the Top Hip Hop and R&B lineup to claim fifth and 10th.

*Previously absent from our charts, Rihanna's "Where Have You Been" and Akon's "Hurt Somebody" reemerge in fourth and sixth.

*Edged out by the new additions and returning picks, Chris Brown's "Sweet Love," Outasight's "Now or Never," Kevin Cossom's "Lay Up" and Usher's "Climax (Clinton Sparks Remix)"
