This set a Hot 100 chart record for the biggest leap to the top of the charts when it jumped from #71 to #1 in the span of one week on the Billboard
magazine issue dated September 6, 2008. The previous long jump champ had been "Makes Me Wonder
" by Maroon 5, which bounded from #64 to #1 in May 2007. T.I. told Billboard
magazine in response to the song's huge leap: "I guess people like the song - I hope that's what accounts for it. I think it's a new sound for me, something people aren't necessarily used to hearing. It's one of those risky records. It just happened to work in our favor."
This song held the record for six weeks before T.I.'s follow up "Live Your Life" leapt from #80 to #1 to replace it at the top.
