T.I. Rules Billboard
Platinum selling rapper T.I. has made Billboard history, with his latest single “Whatever You Want,” by jumping 70 spots to reach the No. 1 chart in just three weeks.

According to Billboard, the hit song off T.I.'s upcoming album Paper Trail has jumped from its debut at No. 71 on the Hot 100 chart to the top position in record time. Tip’s accomplishment surpasses rock band Maroon 5’s song “Makes Me Wonder,” which went from No. 64 to No. 1 in May 2007.

The achievement also marks the Grand Hustle artist’s first ever No. 1 single and his opening-week digital total (205,000 downloads) is reportedly the best from a hip-hop song since Nielsen SoundScan began gathering download data in ’03.
