Ringtone roundup

Crave's weekly tracking of ringtones shows Chris Brown leading the way, with Gym Class Heroes and Buckcherry making a hard charge.

Each week, Crave tracks the most popular ringtones.

The Gym Class Heroes continue their surge up the charts as their delightful "Cupid's Chokehold" has broke into the top five of Billboard's ringtone chart. The alternative hip-hoppers saw their song rocket from number 19 to six last week, and it moved up to the fourth-hottest ringtone this week.

Chris Brown's "Poppin'" remains at the top of the list, and is once again followed by Buckcherry's "Crazy B****" and Rascal Flatts' "What Hurts the Most."

Since I've been tracking ringtones, I've been confused about why 50 Cent's "Candy Shop" continues to be so high on this list. The song is the fifth-hottest ringtone this week, and has been on the charts for 109 weeks. Even worse, his song "Best Friend" is number 10 this week as well. It's not that I hate Curtis Jackson, but I think his earlier songs like "Wankster" or "In da Club" would make far better ringtones. I mean, if you're going to use songs that are played out, you might as well use the ones that sound good.

Beyonce's "Irreplaceable" jumped from number 14 to nine, and you can read the rest of the list here.
