NEW YORK, Feb. 2 (UPI) -- Beyonce's "Check On It" featuring Slim Thug held the No. 1 spots on the Billboard Hot 100 and Pop 100 album charts for a second week Thursday.

But the music big news revolves around "Breaking Free," the single from the Disney Channel's "High School Musical," Billboard.com reported.

The single by Zac Efron and Vanessa Anne Hudgens recorded the Hot 100's biggest jump in the history of the chart -- moving up from No. 86 last week to No. 4 this week with absolutely no radio play. The 82-point lead was based solely on digital downloads.

No. 2 on the Hot 100 was Nelly's "Grillz" featuring Paul Wall and Ali & Gipp and the song moved up the Hot Ringtones chart, knocking the Black Eyed Peas "My Humps" to No. 2 after 10 weeks.

Mary J. Blige's "Be Without You" moved up to No. 3 on the Hot 100 and held onto No. 1 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart for a sixth straight week.

James Blunt's "You're Beautiful" was No. 5 on the Hot 100, Ne-Yo's "So Sick" was No. 6 and Chris Brown's "Run It!" was No. 7.

Jamie Foxx's "Unpredictable" featuring Ludacris was No. 8, the Pussycat Dolls' "Stickwitu" fell to No. 9 and Natasha Bedingfield's "Unwritten" rounds out the Hot 100's top tier.
