Before the release of their collaborative cut ‘Can’t Remember To Forget’, Rihanna and Shakira have seen their mutual ‘pal’ Beyonce smash the charts with her brand new single ‘Drunk In Love’…in the United Kingdom.
Yes, as the number continues to rock the world of many US music lovers, this week brings with it good news for its UK chart run!
With streaming data unable to count towards UK chart positions, paid purchases of ‘Drunk’ have pushed it to #9 on iTunes, now one spot away from surpassing Eminem‘s ‘The Monster‘ which sits #8.
Doing so as sales of her new album catwalk towards the 2 million units worldwide milestone, Beyonce’s ‘Drunk’ glory comes as ‘XO’ blows kisses from #40, ‘Mine’ woos #63 and ‘Pretty Hurts’ redefines beauty at #68.
Elsewhere, Pop prince Mike Hough soars to commendable chart ground with his new single ‘Better’ this week, watching the number rise to #26 on the very same chart.
Impressive, as this feat was achieved without the major label backing, music videos, radio or television plugs that oft go into securing Top 40 spots! Indeed, after serving as the support act for JLS‘ last arena tour, the vocalist undoubtedly secured the support of the show’s attendees, who may be to thank for the surprise smash!
