TAIO CRUZ HAS THE BIGGEST JUMP EVER FOR A DEBUT TRACK ON THE BILLBOARD SINGLES CHART
When the Billboard Singles Chart comes out today, British newcomer Taio Cruz will have the record for the largest jump to No. 1 with a debut single. "Break Your Heart," featuring Ludacris took a huge leap from 53-1!
The track old 273,000 downloads in its first full of availability, according to Nielsen SoundScan, to also claim the No. 1 slot on Digital Songs. Last week, the track moved 31,000 in a partial sales frame (approximately three days), which prompted its Hot 100 entry.
The song also topped the UK singles chart when it debuted last September.
The record for the largest climb to No. 1 had been Kelly Clarkson's "A Moment Like This," which went from 52-1 in 2002. Kelly still has the record for biggest jump to No. 1 among all tracks with "My Life Would Suck Without You." That song jumped from 97-1 a year ago.
