Chart Check: Zayn Malik Makes Hot 100 History With Debut Single ‘Pillowtalk’

Rihanna Rises Closer To Top 5 With 'Work'

zayn-malik-bb1-2016-billboard-04-650-thatgrapejuice

Zayn Malik is definitely music’s newest heartthrob to give Justin Bieber a run for his money.

As reported here, the former ‘One Direction’ divo was set to zoom to #1 on the Hot 100 with his official debut single ‘Pillow Talk.’  With the tallying week complete reports indicate he not only bested initial predictions of 250,000 units shifted, the tune also bests the chart stats of his former group (who, to date, have failed to nab a #1 on the singles chart).  As if the impressive first week sales and ousting Bieber from the top spot weren’t enough, Malik also made history with his first trip to the chart’s summit.

Via Billboard:

*Zayn is the first U.K. artist to debut at No. 1 on the Hot 100 with a first charted single.

*Zayn is the first artist whose first name starts with a Z ever to top the Hot 100.

*Zayn is the first one-time member of a Hot 100-charting boy band to score a No. 1 with a debut single.  

*Note:  Technically, the first was George Harrison of The Beatles in 1970, but that was pre-Soundscan.

But, before he gets too comfortable, it seems the crooner’s run at #1 may be short lived if the performances of Drake‘s ‘Summer Sixteen’ and Rihanna‘s ‘Work’ are any indication.  With strong showings not too far from Malik’s [on the streaming and airplay front] in the last chart week, next week’s Hot 100 may see a serious shake-up.

Until then…

New Song: Drake – ‘Summer Sixteen’

Long-Awaited LP 'Views From The 6' Due April

drake-summer-sixteen-thatgrapejuice

Drake is the vendor that just keeps giving.

The Hip-Hop titan sprung a surprise on listeners of OVO Sound Radio on Apple’s Beats 1 tonight with the debut of new single ‘Summer Sixteen.’

Like most offerings from the Canadian bred star, the cut was crafted by longtime collaborator Noah ’40’ Shebib, Cubeatz, and Boi-1da – producer of Drizzy’s new Rihanna duet ‘Work.’

The song is the latest in a consistent stream of music from the star, who released two projects last year – ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late’ and the Future assisted ‘What A Time To Be Alive.’ New album ‘Views From The Six’ is due April, it has now been confirmed.

In a move that is sure to set tongues a’wagging, the Young Money maestro raps the following on ‘Summer’:

“I used to want to be on Roc-A-Fella, then I turned into Jay. Now I got a house in L.A., now I got a bigger pool than Ye / And look man, Ye’s pool is nice, mine’s just bigger is what I’m saying.”

Elsewhere, he takes aim again at Meek Mill, spitting:

“I could’ve killed you the first time, you don’t have to say it louder homie we heard you the first time”

What are you waiting for? Listen below…

Single Off To Solid Start Despite Lukewarm Reviews

Is it fourth time lucky for Rihanna? It’s beginning to seem so.

After mounting a monstrosity of an album campaign for new LP ‘ANTI’ last year, the star finally looks to be shining bright with comeback effort ‘Work.’

Unleashed earlier today, the Drake-assisted track is being billed as the project’s “first single,” yet in reality is the fourth cut lifted from the troubled set.

Fans of the 27-year-old appear to be both forgiving and forgetful, because the the Boi-1da production has hit an impressive initial milestone.

New Song: Rihanna – ‘Work (ft. Drake)’

Star Comes Out Of Retirement To Launch Comeback Single

rihanna-drake-anti-thatgrapejuice

Rihanna has put rumors of retirement to rest with the arrival of brand new single ‘Work.’

After a string of unsuccessful attempts at securing a hit, the 27-year-old has enlisted ex-lover Drake for the latest taste of eighth album ‘ANTI,’ which arrived as a “surprise” moments ago.

The pair’s previous team up resulted in chart-topper ‘What’s My Name,’ naturally begging the question of whether they can recreate the same magic that made the 2010 track such a smash.

With the latter being exactly what Ms. Fenty’s career has been thirsty for over the last year, is the Drizzy duet enough to mop up the mess?

Take a listen below and let us know…

New Song: Drake & Rick Ross – ‘Empire’

drake rick ross thatgrapejuice

While ‘Aston Martin Music’ maestros Rick Ross and Drake aren’t exactly the best of friends anymore, that hasn’t stopped fans of the duo from fantasizing about what a reunion would sound like.

In fact, after digging verses from the vaults, the new J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League album will help bring that fantasy to life as evidenced by the new “collabo” ‘Empire.’  Comprised of verses lifted from late noughties work of both rappers, the tune comes as one of many gems found on the ‘J.U.S.T.I.C.E.For.All’ album (which also features contributions from R. Kelly, Chris Brown, Future, and more).

Before you get your hands and ears on those other numbers, tuck in to hear the Drizzy/Rozay combo below:
