NEW YORK, Sept. 6 (UPI) -- Teen rapper/producer Soulja Boy topped the U.S. record charts with his debut single, "Crank that (Soulja Boy)," Billboard.com said Thursday.

Coming in at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 was Kanye West's "Stronger," followed by last week’s No. 1 song, Fergie's "Big Girls Don't Cry," which dropped two notches to No. 3.

Timbaland's "The Way I Are," featuring Keri Hilson, held onto the No. 4 spot from last week, while Sean Kingston's "Beautiful Girls" stayed at No. 5.

Rounding out the top 10 were T-Pain's "Bartender," featuring Akon; Plain White T’s "Hey There Delilah;" Nickelback's "Rock Star"; Fabolous' "Make Me Better," featuring Ne-Yo; and Plies' "Shawty," featuring T-Pain.

Soulja Boy’s song jumps from No. 2 last week, thanks to the sale of 144,000 digital downloads and performances of the song and its signature dance on MTV's "TRL" and BET's "106 & Park," Billboard said.
