Ludacris Sets Billboard Record

Published March 15, 2010

According to Billboard’s Hot 100 list, Ludacris has secured his fifth number one hit with a little help from London singer/songwriter Tao Cruz on their collaboration “Break Your Heart.”

The feat puts Luda as the first and only rapper to reach the mark in Billboard history. Mr. Bridges snatched his first number one single with the Kanye West-produced “Stand Up” from his third solo project “Chicken-n-Beer” back in 2003. 

In 2004, Luda scored another number one single with Usher’s “Yeah.” Two years later, he topped the charts with “Money Maker,” a collaboration featuring The Neptunes’ Pharrell Williams. The following year,  he appeared on Fergie’s “Glamorus Life,” which also reached no.1.

Ludacris’s "Battle of the Sexes" LP is in stores now.
