With streams, radio adds, and hype in tow, Pop queen Janet Jackson‘s comeback single made a royal entry onto singles’ charts last week – not only gifting her 40th entry on the tally, but also her first mention in almost a decade. But, as this week’s refreshed tally suggests, the general public has pressed the “snooze button” on the singer’s latest R&B blazer ‘No Sleeep’ as it has taken a dive right out of the Hot 100 (an ousting also handed to fellow pop divas’ Madonna‘s ‘B*tch I’m Madonna’ and Britney Spears’ ‘Pretty Girls’ this week).
But, while pop fans sleep on the delectable groove, Urban fans can’t get enough as the track moves up to #8 on Adult R&B Songs chart and retains top 15 placement on the R&B Songs chart with gratitude due in great part to radio.
Now, as #JanFans await a chart boost from its highly anticipated official music video, fans of other artists – namely Rihanna – can already celebrate good tidings courtesy of that very medium. For, as her ‘B*tch Better Have My Money’ tune was slowly sliding down charts, the debut of its much-talked about music video last week helped hoist it right back into the top 20.

This week’s chart highlights:
- With 12 weeks at the top, Wiz Khalifa‘s ‘See You Again’ has now tied the record for longest run at #1 on the Hot 100 by a rap song. Only Black Eyed Peas‘ ‘Boom Boom Pow’ and Eminem’s ‘Lose Yourself’ have notched an equal tenure.
- Bruno Mars & Mark Ronson‘s ‘Uptown Funk’ was finally ousted out of the Hot 100’s top 10 this week, leaving it just one week shy of tying the record for longest run in the top 10 by any song (as reported here).
- It does, however, retain the record for most weeks in the top 10 by any Hot 100 #1
