Chart Check [Hot 100]: Rihanna Resigns From #1 After 9 Weeks

'Panda' Pounces To Top of Singles Chart

rihanna thatgrapejuice  9 weeks #1 billboard hot 100

After an impressive 9 consecutive weeks atop the Hot 100, Rihanna‘s 14th #1 single – ‘Work’ – has finally taken a bow from the tally’s perch.  Dethroned by Desiigner‘s ‘Panda,’ the song’s 9 frame reign fell just one week short of matching her personal best (see:  2011’s ‘We Found Love’ which was on top for 10 consecutive weeks).

However, fans shouldn’t worry for too long.  For, as ‘Work’ works its way down the charts, the swift ascension of its successor, ‘Needed Me,’ may see Rih back on top before she knows it.  Until then, check out this week’s full chart check – singles edition:

Chart Check [Billboard 200]: Prince Blocks Rihanna’s Return To #1

Late Pop Icon Blasts To #1 On Strength of One Day Sales

prince-2016

Given the send off a music royal of his stature deserves, Princewho passed away unexpectedly last week (April 21) – has jumped to the top of the Billboard album charts with his ‘greatest hits’ project.

Also occupying the #2 spot with his magnum opus ‘Purple Rain,’ Prince’s reign over the Billboard 200 is all the more impressive considering the lack of streaming availability afforded his projects.  In other words, if it was as widely available as its nearest competitors, the damage he would’ve done to charts this week would almost be unfathomable.

Alas, with a whopping 179,000 and 69,000 equivalent albums moved respectively (all on the last day of tallying last week), the sets hop over the week’s previously projected competitors for #1 & #2Rihanna‘s ‘Anti’ and Sturgill Simpson‘s ‘Sailor’s Guide To Earth’ – for the wins.

Leave it to Prince to go out on top.  Tuck in below to check out this week’s full chart check:

Rihanna Ties Aretha Franklin’s Hot 100 Record

Pop Princess Set To Unseat Queen of Soul on Billboard's 'All-Time' List

rihanna thatgrapejuice aretha franklin hot 100

While music’s supreme diva Aretha Franklin will forever reign as the ‘Queen of Soul,’ her current reign as the queen of the Billboard Hot 100 is finding itself threatened by a school of relative newcomers – Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj, and, now, Rihanna.

While Swift and Minaj are quickly on the trail of Franklin’s record for “most entries of any female artist” (Franklin leads with 73 total), the ‘Shake It Off’ country pop singer – by her lonesome – has surpassed Franklin’s historic top 40 record.  With 49 top 40 entries, Taylor is now tied for the “all-time” top spot (among female artists) with Queen of Pop Madonna.

But, before she gets too comfortable on the perch, she is soon to be joined by songbird Rihanna’s surpassing of the legendary ‘Respect’ singer. For, after besting some of the Hot 100 records set by Whitney Houston, Madonna, Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson, The Beatles, and Mariah Carey, it appears Riri has Rere in her sights.  Courtesy of her latest hit, ‘Needed Me,’ the Bajan beauty is set to close the gap between herself and Swift.
