American Idol" winner Taylor Hicks soared to the top of the Billboard singles chart with "Do I Make You Proud."

In its first week of sales, Hicks' "Idol" hit sold 190,000 copies to lead the Hot 100 singles chart put out by Billboard. In addition, Hicks' single sold 38,000 digital downloads, according to Nielsen Soundscan. The single, which includes a cover of the Doobies' "Takin' It To the Streets" as a b-side, also led the Pop 100 and Single Sales charts.

Hicks conquered Shakira to rule the charts, dethroning her "Hips Don't Lie" single, which had been on top for two weeks.

Recently named the Hottest Bachelor by People, Hicks will appear on the "Tonight Show with Jay Leno" on Thursday (June 22).

Sales for "Do I Make You Proud" topped the first-week figures for the first singles by the past two "American Idol" winners. Carrie Underwood's "Inside Your Heaven" moved 130,000 in its first week last year, while 2004 winner Fantasia's "I Believe" sold 142,000 copies. Hicks' numbers are lower, though, than the debuts of Kelly Clarkson's "A Moment Like This" (263,000 copies) in 2002 or Ruben Studdard's "Flying Without Wings" (286,000 copies).

The all-time "Idol" first-week singles sales champ is, of course, Clay Aiken. The Season Two runner up's "This Is The Night" sold 393,000 copies in its first week.

It's great but what happened to last week. When is the next time I'm going to see a Haitian, Columbian, and Portugese-Canadian at the top of the charts?

Maybe next week when Taylors songs falls like a rock :lol: J/K/ His song will probobly still be in the top 3 or so. ;) But AI winners first song usually do not have a long life on the hot 100 pop charts top 10 ;)

I'd be even prouder of him if he came by my house and let me have my way with him.
