Teen sensation Soulja Boy has found his second smash hit courtesy of the chart-topping popular single “Kiss Me Thru the Phone.”

 

This week, the Sammie-assisted track reached #1 on Billboard’s Rhythmic Top 40 Radio chart.

 

On Billboard’s Hot Ringmaster’s list, it has remained the #1 ringtone for the last 8 weeks with sales exceeding 1 million.

 

The popularity of the song was helped this week by a 1300 spin-increase in radio markets.

 

The move resulted in the song’s listening public expanding to 107 million.

 

After receiving steady criticism in 2008 over his legitimacy as a Hip-Hop artist, the young superstar feels his latest work shows a marked improvement in his musicianship.

 

“My fans let me know, enough with [those] dancing songs for now,” Soulja Boy Tell’Em explained to AllHipHop.com in a statement.

 

 “Now it’s time to do great music like ‘Kiss Me Thru the Phone.’ It’s a real record, no gimmick. It’s a catchy record because that’s what my fans want.”

 

Soulja Boy will complete a taping this weekend for BET’s “Spring Bling,” and is set to appear May 15 on the CW Network sitcom “The Game.”

 

 At press time, he is also finalizing plans for a cross-country tour for Summer 2009. Soulja Boy’s sophomore album, iSouljaBoyTellem, was released last December.

 

His latest single, “Turn My Swag On,” is #61 on Billboard’s Top 100.
