The Countdown

The Hottest 100 of 2009 countdown took place in January of 2010. For the second time since the 1991 All Time Countdown, the list for the tracks in positions #101 to #200 were released on January 31st, 2010; five days after the 2008 countdown.

At #156, Jamie T featured with his song 'Chaka Demus'. The song was named so because, in its early stages, it reminded him of the sound of reggae duo Chaka Demus & Pliers. In the 1993 countdown, Chaka Demus & Pliers charted at #47 with their song 'Tease Me'.
