Posted on the 05 April 2016 by Mikeylately @MikeyLately


Rihanna back at it again, with being on top of Billboard Top 100 Singles Chart. Rihanna’s “Work,” featuring Drake, logs a seventh week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 (dated April 16). Just to remind y’all Work is Rihanna’s 14th Number 1 song on Billboard.

Rihanna has now spent 58 total weeks at No. 1 on the Hot 100 via her 14 leaders. Rihanna is just one week away from potentially tying The Beatles (59) for the second-most weeks at No. 1; Carey leads with 79 cumulative frames at the summit. (Boyz II Men, with 50 weeks on top, and Usher, with 47, round out the top five.)

Meanwhile, thanks to “Work,” Rihanna ties her second-longest Hot 100 reign, as “Umbrella” (2007) and Eminem’s “Love the Way You Lie,” on which she’s featured (2010), also led for seven weeks each. Only her “We Found Love,” featuring Calvin Harris, spent more time on top: 10 weeks in 2011-12. Rihanna additionally joins Carey as the only artists with four songs each that have led the Hot 100 for at least seven weeks. Carey established the club with a quartet of titles that all spent at least eight weeks at No. 1: “One Sweet Day” (with Boyz II Men), 16 weeks (1995-96); “We Belong Together,” 14 (2005); “Dreamlover,” eight (1993); and “Fantasy,” eight (1995).
