Chicago’s Top 20 Songs

Maybe it’s all those Chelsea Handler promos he’s featured in, but for some reason Chicago is showing some major love for T.I. this week, even bringing his past hit, “Whatever You Like,” back into the mix (it was parodied during the election four months ago, people). Regardless of the Atlanta rapper’s upsurge, he can’t compete with Kanye West and Lady Gaga, who hold down the top two spots for the third straight week. Your move, Chelsea.

Here are this week’s top 20 songs based on Chicago-area radio airplay…
