Well, despite her absence from the stage, Knowles has spent six weeks atop Billboard’s Top Hip Hop & R&B charts with the upbeat jam, beating efforts by Usher and Rihanna.
Released December 7th 2011, ‘Top’ has now reached Gold status in Italy and the US while going Platinum in Australia. This, coupled with its #1 spot on the US Hot Dance Club chart makes it one of the star’s highest selling cuts since 2008′s ‘Single Ladies‘.
