Ringtone Roundup: Predicting the future

Crave's weekly look at the top-10 ringtones takes a stab at guessing which will be the next song to blow up.

Each week, Crave tracks the most popular ringtones.

There hasn't been much change in Billboard's ringtone chart since last time. Chris Brown's "Poppin'" is still on top, and Buck Cherry's "Crazy B****" is still in the top three. Afroman's "Because I Got High" moved up three spots to number seven, and Beyonce's "Irreplaceable" dropped to the ninth spot. Other than that, there wasn't much movement in the top-10 chart.

Despite the lack of movement at the top of the chart, I'm going to put myself out on a limb and predict that Akon's "Don't Matter" will crack the top-10 ringtone list next week. In only its second week on the ringtone charts, the song jumped from 34 to 22. And considering that the song is currently number one on Billboard's Hot 100 this week, I don't think it's that much of a stretch.
