The Billboard Hot 100
Billboard Hot 100
is the music industry standard record chart in the United States for singles, published weekly by Billboard magazine.

12 Inch Singles
The 12-inch single (often simply called 12″) is a type of gramophone record that has wider groove spacing and shorter playing time compared to typical LPs. This allows for louder levels to be cut on the disc by the cutting engineer, which in turn gives a wider dynamic range[citation needed], and thus better sound quality. This record type is commonly used in disco and dance music genres, where DJs use them to play in discos or clubs. They are played at either ​33 1⁄3 or 45 rpm.Contents1 Technical features 2 History2.1 Jamaican roots 2.2 In the United States 2.3 Later developments3 Maxi-singles 4 ReferencesTechnical features[edit] 12-inch singles typically have much shorter playing time than full-length LPs, thus require fewer grooves per inch

twice: one version with reggae artist Super Cat (Track 4) and the other without (Track 13). The song became the band's first hit, holding the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay chart for four consecutive weeks and spending eight weeks at the No. 1 spot on the Hot Modern Rock Tracks chart. A physical CD-single was not released commercially in the US, although it was a huge hit on American radio. The song also reached No. 1 on Canada's Singles Chart.[1] "Fly" did not sound anything at all like the rest of the tracks on the album, being the only reggae fusion track. It also sampled a line from Gilbert O'Sullivan's 1972 hit "Alone Again (Naturally)." Sugar Ray's lead singer Mark McGrath explained that this song had a bouncy beat, yet it was about death; "Fly" too seemed like a bright, up-tempo song but "there is this stark imagery in there
