Chart Check [Hot 100]: Drake Ties Michael Jackson Record With ‘One Dance’s 8th Week At #1

720x405-drake-michael jackson-thatgrapejuice

‘Work’ duo Rihanna and Drake have put in some major work in 2016 to overcome the historic chart records of King of Pop Michael Jackson.

Once thought insurmountable, the rumored on again/off again couple – through their respective projects ‘Anti’ and ‘Views’ – are jointly leaving the pop icon’s Billboard stats in their review.

Indeed, after Rih surpassed the singer’s historic 13 #1’s on the Billboard Hot 100 with her last run atop the tally, now Drizzy – with his monster hit ‘One Dance’ (7 consecutive weeks at #1, 8 overall) – is one week shy of laying claim to one of Jackson’s most unimaginable records.

Tavis Smiley, renown television host and political/social commentator, is extending his talents once again to the pen via ‘Before You Judge Me’ – an in depth look at the tragic last days of King of Pop Michael Jackson.

Released in late June, the biographical page-turner “examines Jackson’s highs and lows — including his constant hunt for privacy in a life that was more public than almost any other and the pressures he endured as someone whose fame made him socially fragile and almost unable to live.”

Now, while blazing the promo trail in support of the project, Smiley dishes with ExtraTV on his intention to turn the book into a TV series and even reflects on MJ’s reported longtime feud with fellow pop icon Prince.  Details inside:

Chart Check [Hot 100]: Rihanna Ties Michael Jackson’s Hot 100 Record

Songstress Holds Record For ‘Most Career Top 10s of Any Female Artist of Color’

rihanna thatgrapejuice top 10 michael jackson

Despite being galaxies away from their Billboard 200 stats, Rihanna continues to wreck the Hot 100 records of many-a-legend.  Already leaving records set by Madonna, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Aretha Franklin, and Janet Jackson in her rearview (as recently as last week), the diva – who has already “technically” surpassed Michael Jackson‘s #1s streak on the singles chart – now shares his top 10 record.

Thanks to ‘Needed Me,’ the latest gem lifted from her latest opus, ‘Anti,’ Ri – at just 28 years old – can now boast an amassment of top 10s that puts her in 3rd place on the “all time” list.

That’s right. There are only 2 other artists in history who have scored more top 10s on the Hot 100 than her.  Get the details below:

Chart Check [Hot 100]: Rihanna Ties Two Michael Jackson Records With #1 Hit ‘Work’

Songstress Reportedly Surpasses Pop Icon’s #1’s Record…Or Did She?

Some may argue Rihanna will never be a legend, but at the rate she’s meeting or surpassing the records of her legendary predecessors, the history books will argue otherwise.

For, despite shortcomings on the Billboard 200 side of charts, her 11 year career has seen her equal or eclipse many-a-Hot 100 record of pop music’s royalty (Whitney Houston, Madonna, Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson, etc).  In fact, those who need a refresher should traipse with us down memory lane for a few highlights:


As of time reporting, Rihanna is the only female artist of color to top Hot 100 this decade


Rihanna outraces Madonna for most top 10 singles amassed in shortest period of time


Rihanna surpasses Whitney Houston‘s Hot 100 top 10 record


Rihanna ties Janet Jackson & Mariah Carey‘s top 10 record

Now, it appears the ‘Diamonds’ diva has her sights set on the Hot 100 crowns of King of Pop Michael Jackson.  With the ascension of her (not Drake‘s) latest tune ‘Work’ to the tally’s perch, the songbird is just one #1 hit away from breaking two of his prized records.

It looks like David Bowie isn’t the only music innovator getting a tribute at this Sunday’s Grammy Awards.

Today, the Grammys took to Twitter to confirm pop icon Michael Jackson will also be receiving a tribute – more specifically in honor of the reissue of his classic ‘Off the Wall’ album (1979).  Tapping R&B crooner Miguel, whose career narrative has lent him more comparisons to Prince than Jackson, the Grammys will see the ‘Coffee’ singer serve up a stirring homage to the King of Pop.

Tuck in below to see what the Grammy nominee will be performing:
