Chart Check [Billboard 200]: Rihanna, Adele, & Justin Bieber Still In Top 5

At this point all we can say is “wow.”

As we’ve reported over the last several weeks, Adele, Justin Bieber, and Rihanna have had a relentless control over the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 since their most recent albums (and singles from those albums) first burst onto the scene.

Addy and Bieber saw their ’25’ and ‘Purpose’ projects respectively released in November 2015 and have not once left the top 5 of the Billboard 200 since.  Similarly, since her first full week of sales, Rih’s latest number – ‘Anti’ – has yet to leave the chart’s highest quintet of positions.

The true test of their staying power was passed when not one, but two impressive debuts landed on charts in the form of Gwen Stefani‘s ‘Truth’ and Jordan Smith‘s ‘Something Beautiful.’ However, despite the sets bowing at #1 and #2 on the refreshed charts, not even the popularity of their respective offerings was enough to oust the trio out of the top 5.

Chart Check [Hot 100]: Rihanna Rings In 6th Week At #1 With ‘Work’

rihanna drake thatgrapejuice hot 100 6th sixth week

‘Kiss It Better’ beauty Rihanna kisses yet another week ‘hello’ atop the Hot 100 with her top-selling Drake assisted single ‘Work.’

Dominating competition on every consumption source (streaming, digital download, radio, etc.), ‘Work’ shows little sign of slowing.

Via Billboard:

Just like on the Hot 100, “Work,” released on Westbury Road/Roc Nation, spends a sixth week at No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart with 31.6 million U.S. streams, down only 7 percent, in the week ending March 24, according to Nielsen Music, marking the track’s fifth straight week topping 30 million streams. Impressively, “Work” is just the second song to tally five weeks of at least 30 million domestic streams, joining Adele’s “Hello” (five weeks in November and December).

Will week 7 be the week the son’Work’ finally gets worked out of its comfortable perch? Time will tell. Until then, see where all your other faves landed on this week’s Hot 100 chart check:

Seismic struggle best defines Rihanna‘s ‘ANTI’ album launch, however a #1 single has helped ‘Kiss It Better’...somewhat.

Sales are still slow for the project, yet it’s proving to be singles hit-factory – a title she’ll no doubt be hoping it keeps to establish at least one facet of success for the album more broadly.

To aid said cause, this week saw Rih announce not one but two new singles.

And it turns out it’s coming a lot sooner than folk may think.
