Pop star's new baby pushes her to #1...
Shakira has claimed the top spot in the Billboard Social 50. Billboard reports that chatter and congratulations on social media following the birth of her son Milan pushed the Latin pop star to the top of the chart for the first time. Justin Bieber slipped a spot to #2 to make way for her.
Elsewhere on the chart, Rihanna held steady at #3 while Beyonce rose five places to #4 on the strength of her lip synching controversy and her upcoming Super Bowl performance. Last week's runner-up One Direction fell three places to #5 followed by Britney Spears, who was down a spot to #6. Taylor Swift fell three places to #7 and Bruno Mars was down a notch to #8. Eminem jumped three places to #9 and Alicia Keys' new single "B.N.M. Part 2" pushed her nine spots to #10.
