Soulja Boy Hits #1 with Kiss Me Single
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 Billboards Rhythmic Top 40 Radio chart.
On Billboard's Hot Ringmasters 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 songs 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 TellEm explained to AllHipHop.com in a statement.
"Now its 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 BETs 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 Boys sophomore album, iSouljaBoyTellem, was released last December.
His latest single, Turn My Swag On, is #61 on Billboards Top 100.
