Country star Chesney earned his highest ranking on the Hot 100 with Out Last Night, which rose 44 places to No 16 after his Greatest Hits II went up for digital sale.
Hannah Montana co-star Mitchel Musso scored the week's top debut with Hey, which debuted at No 70. The song is from his self-titled Disney debut album, which was released June 2.
In the top tier, Pitbull's I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho) rose one to No 2, Keri Hilson featuring Kanye West and Ne-Yo climbed four to No 3 with Knock You Down, and Jeremih stayed at No 4 with Birthday Sex.
