Rihanna 'Work' Leads Hot 100 for Fourth Week as Mike Posner, Lukas Graham Rise
It is business as usual for Rihanna and Drake; the dynamic duo landed another week atop the charts with "Work." For the fourth straight week, the ANTI single takes the No. 1 spot on the Hot 100, beating out hit singles from Justin Bieber, Lukas Graham and Mike Posner.
"Work" easily nabbed the No. 1 position. According to Billboard, it was the most-streamed song of the week with 36.9 million plays, the third most-bought song (109,000 downloads) and it also built on radio with 113 million audience impressions.
The reign of "Work" leads a fully stagnant top three for the third week in row. Justin Bieber's "Love Yourself" and Twenty One Pilots' "Stressed Out" also stay in place at Nos. 2 and 3, respectively, each earning a fourth week in those spots.
The fourth most popular song in the country also remains locked in place; Flo Rida's "My House" holds its position from last week for a second week at No. 4.
The top five, however, saw a bit of a shakeup. As Bieber's "Sorry" slips from No. 5 to No. 8, Lukas Graham's "7 Years" vaulted up the charts from No. 9 to No. 5. The Danish band lead single sales this week with 121,000 downloads of its breakout single, rose in streaming (13 million plays) and saw a bigger impact on radio (48 million audience impressions) leading to its newly heightened position.
Though Lukas Graham saw a big jump, Nos. 6 and 7 were stationary. Zayn Malik's "Pillowtalk" spent a fourth week at No. 6, followed by G-Eazy's "Me, Myself + I" at No. 7 for a third week.
At the bottom of the top 10, DNCE's "Cake by the Ocean" saw a little boost from No. 9 to 10. And a new song rounds out the top 10. Mike Posner's "I Took a Pill in Ibiza" jumped up four spots from No. 14 to 10 thanks to modest increases in sales (64,000 copies sold), streams (9.8 million plays) and radio play (55 million audience impressions).
