Lil Wayne's single "Lollipop" featuring late songwriter Static Major returned to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart on Thursday after a three week break.See Also:
It's the longest chart-topping hiatus since Usher's "U Got It Bad" had a four-week layover between No. 1 runs in January 2002. "Lollipop" was also on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart for a fourth week.
Lil Wayne, a.k.a. Dwayne Carter, is due to drop his sixth studio album, "Tha Carter III," next month. Static Major, a.k.a. Stephen Garrett, died suddenly in February, a few weeks before the song's release, aged 33. A posthumous album, "Suppertime," is in the works.
Meanwhile, Leona Lewis' former No. 1 "Bleeding Love" was No. 2 for a second week, while last week's champ, R&B star Rihanna's "Take a Bow," slipped to No. 3. Usher's "Love in This Club" featuring Young Jeezy moved up one to No. 4, trading places with Jordin Sparks' "No Air" featuring Chris Brown.
Ray J & Yung Berg's "Sexy Can I" held at No. 6, and Madonna's "4 Minutes" featuring Justin Timberlake at No. 7. Natasha Bedingfield's "Pocketful of Sunshine" rose one to No . 8, trading places with Mariah Carey's "Touch My Body." Danity Kane's "Damaged" was steady at No. 10.
