“Work” Leads Hot 100 for Sixth Week

Rihanna’s “Work,” featuring Drake, scores a sixth week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 (dated April 9).

Just like on the Hot 100, “Work,” released on Westbury Road/Roc Nation, spends a sixth week at No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart with 31.6 million U.S. streams, down 7 percent, in the week ending March 24, according to Nielsen Music, marking the track’s fifth straight week topping 30 million streams. Impressively, “Work” is just the second song to tally five weeks of at least 30 million domestic streams, joining Adele’s “Hello” (five weeks in November and December).

“Work” also tops the subscription services-based On-Demand Songs chart (14.4 million, down 6 percent) for a seventh frame. It holds at its No. 3 high on Radio Songs (122 million in airplay audience, up 2 percent) and No. 4 on Digital Songs (85,000 downloads sold, down 12 percent), which it led for two weeks. The track rules Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart for an eighth (nonconsecutive) week.

Congratulations RiRi!!

As reported when the song reached No. 1, “Work” is Rihanna’s 14th Hot 100 leader, upping her into a solo share of the third-most No. 1s all-time, passing Michael Jackson (13). The Beatles lead with 20 No. 1s, followed by Mariah Carey (18). “Work” is also the record-breaking ninth Hot 100 No. 1 in a row by non-U.S.-born acts (with Rihanna from Barbados and Drake from Canada), while this week marks the record-extending 38th straight week that non-American talent has led the Hot 100.

Speaking of The Beatles and Carey, Rihanna has now spent 57 total weeks at No. 1 on the Hot 100 via her 14 leaders. She’s two weeks away from potentially tying The Beatles (59) for the second-most weeks at No. 1; Carey leads with 79 cumulative weeks at the summit. (Boyz II Men, with 50 weeks on top, and Usher, with 47, round out the top five.)

“Work” keeps atop the Hot 100 with, like last week, a roughly 3-to-2 lead in chart points over the list’s runner-up, although, this week, a new song moves into second place, as Lukas Graham’s “7 Years” reaches a new peak, rising 3-2 on the Hot 100. The single from the pop band from Denmark (led by Lukas Graham Forchhammer), first a worldwide hit beginning late last year, slips 1-2 after two weeks atop Digital Songs (124,000, down 1 percent) but pushes 3-2 on Streaming Songs (15.2 million, up 9 percent) and 15-13 on Radio Songs (67 million, up 13 percent).
