Chart Check [Hot 100]: Justin Bieber Bounces Back To #1

Has Zayn Malik’s ‘Pillowtalk’ been laid to rest already?  If Justin Bieber‘s recent sales & streaming performances have anything to do with it, the answer just may be “yes.”

As reported last week, Zayn zoomed to #1 with his official debut solo single on the wings of over 250,000 downloads and impressive streaming figures.  This week, however, sings a different tune as it appears fans have fallen asleep on ‘Pillowtalk’ – proof of such is found in its staggering drop down the top 10.

And, while Bieber has regained grip of the top spot with his latest hit ‘Love Yourself,’ he certainly has his work cut out for him if he plans to stay there.  For, without the assistance of any live performances or promotional music videos, Rihanna’s comeback single – ‘Work’ (featuring Drake) – is making a beeline to the top as it hops right into the top 5.

See exactly where she and all of your favorite stars from today landed on this week’s Hot 100 chart check:

    14th #1 when the video releases #NAVY

    • What now February 18, 2016


  2. ???Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans??? February 18, 2016

    I can’t with “Cake by the Ocean”. It’s kinda a cute groove, though. But DEATH at Nick Jonas having to reinvent himself by hiding behind another band because he couldn’t do well solo.

    • Weezy Tha Goat February 18, 2016

      It’s Joe your thinking about. Nicholas is still hoeing himself to the gay community.

      • ???Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans??? February 18, 2016

        Oh, yeah! Sorry, hun. Thanks for correcting me. Oh, and Kii at him playing a gay character in “Kingdom”, yet I haven’t seen him f*** or kiss another guy yet. He is officially the male gaga always clinging to the gay’s for sales.

    Rihanna is Queen …since 2005 beyonce has been her lesser and it won’t change anytime soon .

  4. frank February 18, 2016

    Lets see why Work won’t get to no. 1 after the release of the music video.Buh on a more serious note;that is a massive drop @Zayn Malik from?No.1 to No.7 smdmfh!!!!

    • #JACKIE February 18, 2016

      That’s what you call HYPE. He sucks. Justin is king and remains unbothered.

      • shakira stan February 18, 2016

        Didn’t epic just fire ciara?
        Why not be a good fan like kanye’s fans and start contributing money for baby past .

  5. #TeamTinashe Stan(#JOYRIDE…..Coming Soon) February 18, 2016

    Now that the digital age has officially taken over in all aspect I expect more #1’s on this chart by him due to social media hype by his fans. Congrats to him though! 😉

  6. Britney Stan February 18, 2016

    The meltdowns will be real once WORK hits #1

    • Barb February 18, 2016

      Yall said that about FFS, BBHMM, even American Dioxide. Just stop.

      • Britney Stan February 18, 2016

        Just like how barbz thought Nick would win a grammy this year.

      • Barb February 18, 2016

        Or how you thought S****** Jean would snatch wigs? Britney only has 1 damn grammy out of one of the most famous discographies in pop so sit down.

      • What now February 18, 2016

        SCREAMING! Drag a bit Britney

      • King Mark111 /.\ February 18, 2016

        Just like Britney fans still think that Teen Britney is coming back. Hint, she’s never coming back.

  7. shakira stan February 18, 2016

    Let’s list things rihanna is better than becalorionce on
    Better music
    Dresses better
    Way prettier .
    Better body
    Feminine legs and thighs not the bulky legged fat lap.

    A better dancer ( weaves and rolling around might do it for you guys but I prefer a woman who can bust to some Jamaican reggae .
    A better s** life …not the uptight semi lesbian marrying a chimp and securing her body guard .
    Rihanna will have a better looking kid
    Rihanna has sold way more singles thsn beyonce even though her discography is atleast 50 percent less
    Than beyonce
    Rihanna has videos with billion views on YouTube ..can’t say the same for beysausagece with a gazzalion music videos.

    • Britney Stan February 18, 2016

      Speak that gospel

    • Tyler Makiavelli February 18, 2016

      Rihanna has a protruding forehead AND is shaped like the Seattle Space Needle.

  8. YOUR MADGEsty February 18, 2016


    I hope she releases the video for “Work” soon as everybody is waiting. @NYT did a list on most anticipated music videos this month where Rihanna’s “Work” is #1 and @Billboard and @Rolling Stone retweeted it.

    If she wants that 14 #1 single, she better release it within the next three days max. It’s already #12 on airplay, bouncing back and forth between #2 & #3 on digital sales/itunes and #2 on streaming. Come on Rih! The navy and casual fans like me are waiting!



    SCREAMING @ Zayn Malik though. Pillowtalk was a cool tune but… oh well.

  9. LDN Chick February 18, 2016

    After 2 years, Rihanna hasn’t a single song outchart DRUNK IN LOVE. Yet they called Drunk in love a flop….

    • Tyler Makiavelli February 18, 2016

      According to the Navy, a song isn’t a hit unless it charts at #1.
      So what are they rejoicing over?

    • Applause February 18, 2016

      And since this decade has started Beyonce has only had two top 10 hits one thanks to Gaga.

      • Tyler Makiavelli February 18, 2016

        Are you sure you want to go there lil Monster?
        Speak up now or forever hold your piece…..

      • Applause February 18, 2016

        Stating facts you can’t handle them?

      • King Mark111 /.\ February 18, 2016

        The cutter spoke facts. Rihanna had 8 #1s this decade. How many #1s did Beyonce get this decade?

    • LDN Chick February 18, 2016

      @Applause. Except those are incorrect facts lol. Do your research honey.

      • Applause February 18, 2016

        Name me all Beyonces Top 10 hits from 2010-2016. I’ll wait.

      • LDN Chick February 18, 2016

        My mistake I thought you said Top 20. But still Beyonce>>>>Gagz.

      • Applause February 18, 2016

        Uneducated hive lol

      • LDN Chick February 18, 2016

        Shouldn’t you be somewhere giving out a free blow job?

    • Kev Kev February 18, 2016

      you’re clinging onto Beyonce’s only hit from that 3 year old album? Where’s Hymn for the Weekend charting at lately?

  10. Barb February 18, 2016

    She pushed back the video after Formation was released. This will be her peak.

  11. frank February 18, 2016

    Stop the stan war even though Sam is pushing u too.Lets appreciate good music.Next week prediction….No.1 Work by Rihanna ft. Drake

  12. Applause February 18, 2016

    She needs to release the video like today if she wants another #1.

  13. LB February 18, 2016

    Work is at #4, nice. She needs to drop the video so it goes to #1

    • Tyler Makiavelli February 18, 2016

      ^^^ Umm, did Applause ghost write this comment for you???^^^

      • Applause February 18, 2016

        The way Jay z ghost writes Beys songs these days

        (Hot sauce in my bag)

      • Tyler Makiavelli February 18, 2016

        The group home is about to report you missing.

      • Applause February 18, 2016

        From what I hear you’re a fellow monster ?

      • Tyler Makiavelli February 18, 2016

        Haha and risk catching the funk?
        I don’t think so!

  14. Love Life February 18, 2016

    Work has to be the most annoying song of the year so far.

  15. LDN Chick February 18, 2016

    Why must Rihanna stans insist on hiding behind Gaga, Mariah Carey and Britney Spears. The cowardice in itself proves your fave is flopping.

    • Applause February 18, 2016

      I drag both Rihanna and Beyonce on this site no ones safe. The hive needs to faces facts you donkeys have tried it with all the fan bases.

      • LDN Chick February 18, 2016

        That’s how I know you’re a fake fan, where were you when the Navy dragged your fave for filth through the entire artpoop era? But I’m glad the Hive has you bothered so much…. Hive impact.

      • Applause February 18, 2016

        Go pull up those tired 2013/2014 post idiot I have nothing to prove.

      • LDN Chick February 18, 2016

        How does it make a difference when they were? Fake fan, just have some balls and admit you Stan for goat. I know it’s hard considering she is flopping harder than 4 and artpop put together…

      • ? February 18, 2016

        Chick you clearly have no life the fact that you’re keeping tabs on who is dragging and staning for who just says it all and yes I created a troll account just to address you somstfu and do something about it you slag

      • LDN Chick February 18, 2016

        Who are you now?

  16. LmfaoHoe February 18, 2016

    Kiss it Better would’ve been top 10 had she performed it but its cool save it for later. Along with a video that company it along with Needed Me, Closer, S** With Me, Same Ol Mistake, and Love on the brain.

  17. Yeah I Said It February 18, 2016

    Let me see you flop flop flop flop flop.

  18. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy February 18, 2016

    The video for Work needs to be out NOW if she expects it to go #1. Also, she needs to be filming a video now for Kiss It Better. KIB is slowly rising on the R&B charts and needs an official rollout once Work burns out. But after seeing how she and Roc Nation has been so messy this past year… #DefJamWouldNever

  19. DIABETES UNBOTHERED February 18, 2016

    THE BRAVERY & BLUNT AUDACITY to think she was big enough to announce a tour woth no hit single or album out. She tried pulling anoth Bey and IT FAILED cuz even after dropping tickets still unsold. & then we have the Adele album & tour & Beys tour making things worse. Poor thing having grammy meltdowns now cuz couldnt even swallow being in the same room with bey adele and taylor… it was all too much. #POORFRIH

  20. ? February 18, 2016

    And to those that keep clinging to the artpop flopped drag bear in mind that it sold over 600K WW becoming the highest debut by a female that year but was dethroned by Bey with her groundbreaking album.

  21. #JACKIE February 18, 2016

    Rihanna has started “postponing” tour dates already kiiiiiiiii.

    • King Mark111 /.\ February 18, 2016

      Ciara been dropped from Epic. It’s over, you and Ciara lose.

      • #JACKIE February 18, 2016

        Rihanna has been losing since January 2015 and you’re stressed! Kii. Dumb f**.

  22. King Mark111 /.\ February 18, 2016

    Told y’all Zit would free fall off the charts. Kids aren’t feeling that boring ish.

  23. Rihboy February 18, 2016

    No promotion, bailed on the Grammys, messy era start, tidal fiasco, piration galore, being blasted by failing media outlets, then praised later by lucrative ones. That reign. Work will shoot to number 1 once she drops the video for it and delivers a solid performance. Kiss it better needs to be next! Then close to you! I really see close to you being successful like stay once it receives single treatment.

  24. RihannaIsMadonna February 19, 2016

    My Queen post ain’t even abt her but she got people talking all salty n stuff
