Rihanna's Work celebrates two weeks of supremacy on the Billboard Hot 100

Rihanna's Work celebrates two weeks of supremacy on the Billboard Hot 100

Posted by PanamericanWorld on March 01, 2016

Rihanna may not have hit the top spot in the UK with Work just yet, but the track has scored a second week atop the Billboard Hot 100 in the US.

The collaboration with Drake garnered 169,000 downloads and 46.5 million streams, the third-highest weekly amount of plays ever recorded in US chart history. Only Baauer's Harlem Shake (due to user generated videos containing the track) and Adele's Hello have achieved a higher tally across a seven day period.

 

We reported last week how Work became Rihanna's 14th US chart topper, pushing past Michael Jackson in the all-time rankings. Only The Beatles and Mariah Carey have had more songs hit the Hot 100 peak than RiRi.

The song marks the first time an artist has also hit Number 1 with two different collaborators twice. Work marks Rihanna and Drake's second Number 1 following What's My Name?, whilst she also hit the top spot Stateside with Eminem on Love The Way You Lie and The Monster.

The rest of the Top 10 remains unchanged. The first ever Official Charts Record Breaker Justin Bieber holds firm at 2 with Love Yourself, Twenty One Pilots' Stressed Out sticks at 3, Bieber's Sorry stays at 4, and Flo Rida's My House completes the Top 5.

Joe Jonas' new band DNCE climb a place to Number 9, cementing his status as one of only a handful of acts to appear within the Top 10 under three billings: with DNCE, with The Jonas Brothers and as a soloist.

Just outside the Top 10, current UK Number 1 Lukas Graham's 7 Years hits a new peak, jumping from 20 to 12, Yo Gotti's Nicki Minaj collaboration Down in the DM moves from 18 to 13, and Mike Posner's I Took a Pill in Ibiza climbs from 24 to 15.
