As we reported here just last week, on-and-off again boos Drake and Rihanna were tied for most overall weeks at #1 on the Hot 100 this decade, boasting 41 weeks each.

However, just days before unveiling the accompanying music video for his 2018 megahit ‘In My Feelings,’ Drizzy learned his viral smash had earned yet another week atop the tally.  The extension granted him just what he needed to edge Rih out of the top spot and claim the title for ‘most weeks at #1 in the 2010s’ by his lonesome.  As if that wasn’t enough, the rapper boasts the most weeks at #1 this century by a solo male artist (and secondmost of all time only behind Usher‘s whopping 47 weeks at #1).

With congratz certainly due, look below to see who joins him in the top 25 this week on TGJ’s weekly ‘Chart Check: Hot 100’ edition:

Beyond shutting down body shamers who’d begun spreading rumors she was pregnant with her third child (click here to read more), Christina Aguilera took to Twitter to ease fan fears surrounding the status of her current era (tour, new singles, etc.).

As has been widely reported, June 2018’s ‘Liberation’ – Aguilera’s first album in six years – was greeted with critical acclaim only to disappear from the Billboard 200 just 3 weeks after its debut.  However, in a recent Twitter Q&A with her fans (whom she’s affectionately christened #Fighters), the Grammy-winner reasserts her decision to avoid “chart chasing” (click here to read more) and reminds she’s already hard at work on the album’s follow-up.

Look inside to read her thoughts on ‘Liberation’s next singles, its follow-up album, and if material from her ‘Bionic’ album will surface on her forthcoming tour:


Much like Beyonce, former Fifth Harmony star Normani not only found her roots in a girl group, but also emerged from the composite as a fiery performer that’s left stages lit from killer choreography, sex appeal, and undeniable stage presence.

Because of the similarities some of the latter’s fans have already begun christening her the second coming of the Queen Bey – a comparison ‘Mani recently told ‘Fader’ is flattering yet undue.

 “It’s flattering but I definitely have room to grow and improve. I want to work for my spot. It’s not fair that I’m the next Beyoncé just yet. But I hope to become that,” she said.

This, due in large part to the fact the 22-year-old’s debut album has yet to arrive.  However, given the list of heavy-hitting producers and songwriters set to line its credits list (see:  Missy Elliott, Boi-1da, Danja, Ester Dean, The Dream, DJ Mustard, and more), it’s easy to see how and why industry analysts and fans alike are forecasting the set to be a major breakthrough toward the young singer’s goal of being ‘the next Beyonce.’
