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


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:

Drake Disses Tyga: ‘Act Your Age, Not Your Girl’s Age’


Months after Tyga took to VIBE magazine to announce his departure from his Young Money label home and slam his fellow YMCMB labelmates Nicki Minaj & Drake (click here if you missed that), the ‘Faded’ rapper is now feeling the burn from a clapback found on ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late.’
