Chart Check: Wiz Khalifa Continues Control of Hot 100 As Rihanna Notches New Top 20

rihanna-wiz khalifa-thatgrapejuice

2014 proved that girls really did run the world as the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 consistently listed more female tenants than their male counterparts for most of the year.  2015 is looking to show otherwise with this week bringing the first time since June 2013 that no female singer was listed in the Billboard’s Hot 100 top 5.

After an impressive 14 week tenure at the #1 spot, last week shared news that Bruno Mars’ monster hit ‘Uptown Funk’ moved downtown to #2 – dethroned by Wiz Khalifa‘s newest hit ‘See You Again.’  A fitting title as this week’s refreshing of the tally sees him again holding tight to the #1 spot, a career highlight unknown to the rapper since his monster 2010 hit ‘Black and Yellow.’

Leading an all-male top 5, Khalifa may not want to get too comfortable in his #1 position as recent gains from the likes of The Weeknd, Jason Derulo, and Rihanna may prove themselves viable threats.

Chart Check: Bruno Mars Wins, Ne-Yo Notches New Top 10 [Hot 100]

neyo thatgrapejuice bruno mars

Bruno Mars’ megahit ‘Uptown Funk‘ seems to have no intention on going downtown Billboard Hot 100 avenue as it reigns for a 9th consecutive week.

The feat not only gives Mars’ his longest running reign on the chart’s perch, but also pencils him in history books into an exclusive club of hitmakers to ever lead the Hot 100 and Official UK Singles chart for at least 7 weeks (Bryan Adams“(Everything I Do) I Do It for You,” 1991; Whitney Houston‘s “I Will Always Love You,” 1992-93; and Rihanna‘s “Umbrella,” featuring Jay Z, 2007 complete the quartet).

Elsewhere in the top 10, the only new faces seen are those of serial pop hitmakers Pitbull & Ne-Y0 with their hit ‘The Time of Our Lives,’ marking the latter’s first appearance on the Hot 100 in over 2 years!  See where they landed as well as the other movement on the single’s chart below:

Chart Check: Bruno Mars Continues To Sizzle & Soar On The Billboard Hot 100 / Chris Brown’s ‘Ayo’ Impacts iTunes UK

bruno-mars-that-grape-juice-2015-1919101010010101010101011001

Drake isn’t the only Pop prince rocking and ruling the charts this week.

For, should one pay the Billboard Hot 100 a visit, they’d find Bruno Mars at #1 with the single ‘Uptown Funk’, placed in the enviable spot for a total of seven weeks!

His chart reign continues as Rihanna’s ‘FourFiveSeconds’ finds itself placed at #4, and as Chris Brown & Tyga‘s joint jam ‘Ayo‘ impacts iTunes UK‘s Top Ten by claiming the #9 spot for itself.

The cut’s charting in the market will come as a welcome surprise for Brown fans as past legal troubles have seen him unable to promote music in the country physically.

However, it seems his absence has made the hearts of British fans grow fonder as his success with this single comes after 2013’s ‘Loyal’ was certified Gold in the market for sales of over 400,000 units.

Chart Check: Rihanna Rises On Hot 100 While Drake Dominates Billboard 200 With Surprise Album

bruno-mars-rihanna-rihanna

At the rate Rihanna, Kanye, and Paul McCartney are moving, it looks more like they’re ‘FourFiveSeconds’ to hitting #1 on the Hot 100 with their modern day pop-folk single.  Giving McCartney his first top 5 on the chart in 31 years, the song is slowly, but surely creeping to the top spot.

But, as the week has evidenced, such creep will be no easy feat.

As the tally’s refreshing shows, ‘Locked Out of Heaven’ hitmaker Bruno Mars appears to be locked in the #1 spot and has clocked yet another week on the chart’s perch with ‘Uptown Funk.’  In fact, reigning in lucky week number 7, the run gives him his longest reign at the top – besting his former longest reign ‘Heaven’ by 1 week.

Elsewhere, on album charts, it comes as no surprise that Drake‘s surprise album ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late’ is #1 with over 535,000 united moved its inaugural week (495,000 of those are pure album sales).  To put this into context, Beyonce’s self-titled surprise moved 617,000 units in a little over 3 days, but could at least later boast physical copy sales in its tally.

Drake’s sales are expected to be relatively sustained over the next week but, unlike Bey, will not have any physical retailer as its considered a “mixtape.”  Furthermore, Drizzy’s reign atop the Billboard 200 enters him in history books as only the second hip hop act to see his first 4 albums debut at #1 (DMX is the first).

Enough chatter, tuck in below to see this week’s refreshed Hot 100 and Billboard 200 lists below:
