As far as singles go, very few can say they get better treatment than those belonging to ‘Thug In My Life‘ singer Rihanna.
Indeed, as her track record on Billboard’s Hot 100 can vouch for, her ability to pick a cut, record it and then force feed it to the masses has ensured favorable chart positions for even her lesser known material in recent years. A testament to the strength of her installed audience.
Now find out why her hold over the casual listener has her new single, ‘Pour It Up‘, rising on the ‘Hot 100’ below…
Without a supporting music video or a single televised performance, ‘Up‘ backflipped 20 spots up the chart in a single week and now holds the #76 spot, just two weeks after becoming available for purchase.
Meanwhile, on a digital tip, the club anthem resides at #51 on iTunes USA and if succeeds in ascending on the charts next week as much as it did this week, is the only Urban jam likely to snatch the R&B/Hip Hop songs top spot from its predecessor, ‘Diamonds‘.
Fans can look forward to a visual for the song in the coming weeks, likely to coincide with Riri’s forthcoming Grammy 2013 stint where she is reportedly planning to perform the UK Top 5 hit ‘Stay‘. All this, before she kicks off her ‘Diamonds World Tour’ at Buffalo’s First Niagara Center on March 8th.
