Pink notches first solo No. 1 single

Pink scored her first solo No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Thursday with “So What,” ending the three-week reign of T.I.’s “Whatever You Like.”

The feisty pop singer previously topped the in 2001 through a Grammy-winning remake of Labelle’s “Lady Marmalade” with Christina Aguilera, Mya and Lil’ Kim. “So What” is the first single from Pink’s fifth album, “Funhouse,” which is slated for an October 28 release.

T.I. slipped to No. 2, swapping places with Pink, while Rihanna’s “Disturbia” held at No. 3, and M.I.A.’s “Paper Planes” rose one to No. 4.

The chart’s top debut was Jay-Z’s all-star hip-hop track “Swagga Like Us” at No. 5. Credited to Jay and T.I. featuring Kanye West and Lil Wayne, the song introduces Jay-Z’s upcoming “Blueprint 3” album.

Chris Brown’s “Forever” fell two to No. 6, Ne-Yo’s “Closer” rose one to No. 7, and T-Pain’s “Can’t Believe It” featuring Lil Wayne jumped four to No. 8.

Following its return to Apple’s iTunes store after its abrupt removal by Atlantic Records, Estelle’s “American Boy” surged 44 places to No. 9. Lil Wayne’s “Got Money” featuring T-Pain rose five to No. 10.

Other big debuts included Taylor Swift’s “Love Story” at No. 16 and Fall Out Boy’s “I Don’t Care” at No. 21.

Billboard’s airplay-based rock charts were unchanged, with Staind beginning a third week atop Modern Rock with “Believe” and current albums chart champ Metallica starting a second with “The Day That Never Comes.”
