Rihanna and Drake 'Work' Into No. 1 Spot on Hot 100 Again Over Justin Bieber, Flo RIda
Rihanna is "Work"-ing it at No. 1 again. After blasting up the charts last week to achieve her latest Hot 100 topper, she holds tight for yet another week, besting hit singles from Justin Bieber, Twenty One Pilots, Flo Rida and more.
According to Billboard, "Work" easily nabbed the No. 1 spot this week, giving Rihanna and Drake a second week on top. The domination of "Work" came largely from the release of the single's dual music videos on Feb. 22, chalking up 13.9 million views on YouTube and VEVO and 46.5 million overall streams. Thanks to the added hype around the song, Rihanna also led digital downloads this week with 169,000 copies of "Work" sold.
Rihanna isn't the only artist to hold her high spot on the charts this week - the top six singles in the country are actually holdovers from last week. Justin Bieber holds the Nos. 2 and 4 spots with "Love Yourself" and "Sorry," respectively, with Twenty One Pilots' "Stressed Out" sandwiched between for a second straight week at No. 3.
Flo Rida's "My House" and Zayn Malik's "Pillowtalk" also stay locked in place in their spots from last week, with Flo Rida spending a third week at No. 5 and Zayn a second at No. 6.
There are no new songs in the top 10 and only moderate moves in Nos. 7 through 10. G-Eazy's "Me, Myself & I" picked up slight gains, moving up from No. 8 to 7 this week. He swapped places with Adele's lead 25 single "Hello," which continues its journey down the chart at No. 8.
Adele and G-Eazy weren't the only artists to switch place on the Hot 100; DNCE and The Chainsmokers did it too. DNCE's "Cake by the Ocean" jumped up one spot to No. 9 this week, bumping The Chainsmokers' "Roses" down to No. 10, rounding things out.
