Rihanna & Beyonce Compete For UK #1 Spot

Published: Sunday 28th Feb 2016 by David

Rihanna‘s power on the U.K. charts has been reignited by her new single ‘Work.’

Good news below…

Her performance at last week’s BRITs pushed the Island-inspired bop to #2 on the Official Charts, nudging it one step closer to the #1 spot.

That position is currently occupied by Lukas Graham‘s ‘7 Years‘ but may find a friend in Rihanna’s cut if interest in it rises in the coming week.


However, she has serious competition.

For, blasting into the Top Ten is Coldplay and Beyonce’s ‘Hymn for the Weekend’ which has its sights set on the same spot after rising by seven spots in a single week.

The release now sits just eight places away from snatching the #2 spot from ‘Work’ and four places above the Tinashe-backed cut ‘All My Friends’, led by Snakehips.

Elsewhere, Drake‘s ‘Hotline Bling’ slips two spots closer to being pushed out of the Top 50 after falling to #48 as Little Mix‘s scorching BRITs performance sends their hit single ‘Black Magic’ ten spots higher than it was last week.

It now sits at #60.

    I Still Like Beyonce Formation Way Better Than Rihersal Work The Video And Song Is Trash.

    • HailBeysus February 28, 2016

      That new Rugrats theme song remix smashes fRihs Work ??

      • #formlation ?☕ February 28, 2016

        Work by Rihanna was popping in the club last night!

    • 8 February 28, 2016

      TheHate for Rihanna is just embarrassing
      She’s no1 on the US chart
      And no 2 on the Uk
      And beyonce is no where in sight
      So suck d***

      • Nonya February 28, 2016

        Chile Beyoncé has bigger things to do! She made formation downloadable for free and she gives no f*cks about chart positions! #CarryOn!

    • FORMATION IS RHYTHM NATION ’16 (Lana Del Fan) February 28, 2016

      I feel like they’re both legit af and go off in the whip. Lol.

  2. LB February 28, 2016

    So Rihanna’s work is #2 on the UK charts, interesting.


    • FORMATION IS RHYTHM NATION ’16 (Lana Del Fan) February 28, 2016

      Formation is on Tidal as a Tidal exclusive since it was, you know, just for Tidal.

  3. IG: @mixedboy February 28, 2016

    You would think Coldplays single was #3. Neck and Neck with Rihanna. Smh

    • Jamon February 28, 2016

      Exactly, how are they competing when
      1. They’re number 10 and she’s number 2.
      2nd. It’s Coldplay’s song, with a small ft. From Beyonce.
      After reading the headline, I thought Work and Formation was competing against each other.

  4. HailBeysus February 28, 2016

    Look at Coldplay and Bey climbing the charts! Yas! Poor fRih not even Work’s charting success is saving AntiSuccess or AntiSoldOutTour kiii!!!!

    • blue February 28, 2016

      actually its only coldplay, bey is not credited

      • HailBeysus February 28, 2016

        Bitxh did I call for you!?!?!? I know you ain’t solved Africas starving problem so dismiss yourself skeletor!!!

    • rosy February 28, 2016

        Sound deform????? Dafuq kind of My uncle/dad fuxked my Auntie/Mom retardation is this!?!?!?! ???????????????

  5. blue February 28, 2016

    very inaccurate seeing as beyonce is not credited so its rihanna vs coldplay. Also luke whatshisname is miles ahead on itunes so work will have to settle for the #2 spot.

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) February 28, 2016

      She actually is sis……it’s featuring beyonce. That’s the way it’s being promoted. And it has a very good shot of reaching no 1, it’s currently no i on uk airplay for two weeks now.

      • SWISH February 28, 2016

        ^^^^^ LMFAO the delusion

      • Surprise..(DEC 2013) February 28, 2016


      • blue February 28, 2016

        yes she is credited for her vocals but not as a featured artist. So if its just coldplay.

    • Tyler Makiavelli February 28, 2016

      She’s not credited???
      Isn’t she singing the chorus….and in the music video?

      • blue February 28, 2016

        i meant she isnt credited as a featured artist so any stats made by the song are all for coldplay it doesnt matter how much of the song’s success is due to beyonce. Basically the wanted her voice and not name

      • Surprise..(DEC 2013) February 28, 2016

        But if u look at the video for instance, she is clearly credited as a FEATURED ARTIST!!!!

      • blue February 28, 2016

        but look at the song’s title on itunes it doesnt mention beyonce. Justin timberlake was writen featured on the rehab video too. Not the song itself though.

    • ShakaZulu February 28, 2016

      Very much Ok of a performance!

    • HailBeysus February 28, 2016

      I LOVE Rihanna, but no shade, that performance was dreadful. From the singing to the dancing, how can you be out of breath from stiff wining. It was tragic in every way, TRAGIC. Anyway, plays Kiss it better.

      • blue February 28, 2016

        she was sick and clearly wasnt out of breath

      • Surprise..(DEC 2013) February 28, 2016

        Oh yeah she was out of breath sis……she sounded a mess

      • Speak on it. February 28, 2016

        What ever you say girl, but she always performs like that, tragic singing, as well as dancing. She’s still my girl though, so it doesn’t matter.

      • rosy February 28, 2016

        Ok your opinion her stans liked it

    • You tried February 28, 2016

      I don’t care if Rihanna’s JibberJabber of a song Work is played every hour on the hour it still will be forgotten by summer and for the rest of this decade! Also that performance was a joke! She was dragged all over YouTube Facebook INSTA and Twitter! I keep saying little old TGJ means nothing to the mass Public! The world Always have a GOOD Read for Rih and the industry holds a lack of respect for her! That’s all ! Delusionist carry off

      • rosy February 28, 2016

  12. SWISH February 28, 2016

    it’s always so funny how whenever an article about rihanna is posted, so many random user names appear just to shade her and never be seen again ????

    • LB February 28, 2016

      The accuracy. Miss Tyra does the absolute most with those fake troll accounts.

    • IggyLuv February 28, 2016

    • whenindoubtthetruthwillout February 28, 2016

      How? Will she sell more than Adele’s 25 in the first week??

      • HailBeysus February 28, 2016

        This comment is irrelevant. Nobody is doing Adele numbers. Nonetheless B6 will slay. Hell it already is and she ain’t even released an official single kii! We see why you mad so you gotta jump ship to swim and stan for Adele ?????

  14. #TeamTinashe Stan (#JOYRIDE…….) February 28, 2016

    The mission by this website to constantly pit two women against each other. Smh, and the funny thing is that it’s only the gay males that like doing that. The title could’ve been been “Drake & Coldplay compete for UK #1 spot” but TGJ loves the sparring between two women and unfortunately the gay male commenters love it too.

    • blue February 28, 2016

      even that wouldnt make sense as drake is actually credited as a featured artist and beyonce is not

  15. i.DIABETIC ORACLE February 28, 2016

    3 FLOP POST in a row? CERROR ALIYAH & STRAIN-ANNA. Lol I honestly think that with a little more hypnotic best more horns & remastering… formation could have been single worthy. Its so much better than work. I eventually began to like we found love after it went #1 but I still don’t like work at all. Such a lame don’t but atleast she looked good in video & performs it well enuff. Still waiting on them anti tour recepts. How does one with 2 flop singles out sell more tickets than rihsceduled with higher ticket prices & in only 1 week?

    • HailBeysus February 28, 2016

      I got a Question. How the fuxk did my user name change to IggyLuv!?!?!? Dafuq???

    • shakira stan February 28, 2016

      But why is beyonce’s networth still at 250 million after several successful tours?
      Same with shakira who has not toured as much and jlo who has never toured ever isn’t that shameful?

      • Speak on it. February 28, 2016

        Here net worth is 450 million doll, Forbes is shady as hell. They even have my girl Rih at 50 mil, knowing damn well she’s worth 150 million.

  16. LDN Chick February 28, 2016

    Maybe she’ll finally be able to sell some tickets over here because all people care about is the Formation Tour rn. And that Brits performance was terrible, least talked about of the night.

    • blue February 28, 2016

      hate but dont lie, that performance was one of the most talked about. Especially the drake and rihanna aspects of it.

      • LDN Chick February 28, 2016

        Are you from the UK? Because the only ones being talked bout was Adele, Justin B and Little Mix. Rihanna wasn’t even mentioned on the news the next day.

  17. shakira stan February 28, 2016

    Heard jay z is divorcing tooth decayonce after he caught her cheating .
    Can anyone confirm?

  18. LDN Chick February 28, 2016

    @LB care to explain to me now why Bruce Springsteen, Katy Perry and Bruno all had unsold tickets if the Superbowl is the reason Beyonslay has sold out her stadiums?

    • LB February 28, 2016

      LMAO at you bringing up old shxt, I’ve moved on from that, you should too.

      • LDN Chick February 28, 2016

        Moved on because your theory has proved to be nothing but BS? Oh ok. Egg in your face.

      • LB February 28, 2016

        More like I don’t care anymore, but you sure do seeing that you saved this question up for days LMAO.

      • LDN Chick February 28, 2016

        For someone who doesn’t care you take a lot of time responding.

  19. King Mark111 /.\ February 28, 2016

    No play is so close to topping that it’s 8 spots away Vs 1 spot away? But anytime Rita and Cherry Coke are in the leads of #1’s in the UK this decade shows that the UK ain’t it. Formation is still chartless. We call that a flop, didn’t the pest call American Oxygen that and it actually charted to #80ish. lol

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) February 28, 2016

      Formation was not commercially released fool, AMERICAN NO-OXYGEN was actually released as a single and ……..BOMBED. That’s the difference.

      • blue February 28, 2016

        it managed to chart though

  20. Blue Ivy Rod February 28, 2016

    these people r petty as f***. both rih and beyonce are fine.. moving on

  21. Cinnamon Girl February 28, 2016

    Poor Flopanna. She has so many number 1 hits but yet her tour is still not sold out. I wonder if the $10 tickets are selling out at the universities?

    • King Mark111 /.\ February 28, 2016

      $10 tickets was a lie. And it will sell out, most shows do.

      • Cinnamon Girl February 28, 2016

        No it was not a lie. They even offered a free bus ride to the concert! Lol

    • Speak on it. February 28, 2016

      Puzzled. I like Ciara, but how are you going to come for Rihanna, when you stan for an artist who has flopped with 4 straight albums, hasn’t seen a #1 since 2006, has never had a world tour “doing too much, I mean she wouldn’t even be able to fill an arena”, and to top it off, was just dropped by her label. That’s like a Jason Derulo fan coming for Usher, or a Tinashe stan coming for Beyonce. Girl just stop.

      • Cinnamon Girl February 28, 2016

        Girl bye. Ciara ‘s debut album went triple platinum, her second album was number 1 in the U.S. and went platinum. She’s had 2 top 10 hits, 8 billboard Hot 100 top 10 singles, won a Grammy award , 3 MTV video music awards and has sold 23 million albums worldwide PLUS she has talent unlike the no singing no dancing Flopanna

      • Speak on it. February 28, 2016

        Your deflecting, fyi, That Grammy belongs to Missy. So again, how can a person who stans for an artist with so little accomplished, come for an artist of Rihanna’s caliber?
        Rihanna’s Album, singles sales, state and ww, brand, and awards, compared to Ciara, that is utter domination. Why even put Ciara through such embarrassment. I mean girl, her last 4 albums flopped. This current one sold 19k it’s first week, and her last album certification was her second Lp, she’s now on her soon to be 7th. So once again, just stop embarrassing that girl.

  22. King Mark111 /.\ February 28, 2016

    Meanwhile Wacklemore album flopped and his singles. Told y’all, just wait it out and these white rappers would go away. Iggy is warried. Matter of fact, didn’t she drop a single a while ago? Zillion?

  23. blue February 28, 2016

    HFTW will most likely jump up to #3 week but luke current has a 30% lead on work and a 55% lead on HFTW

  24. shakira stan February 28, 2016

    Why is beyonce’s networth still 250 million after several tours that grossed over 200 million… Can someone explain ?

    • HailBeysus February 28, 2016

      Um actually she’s worth $450 million. Her and jay ain’t called a Billionaire couple for nothing. #YoutriedItTho

    • Speak on it. February 28, 2016

      Beyonce is worth 450 million. Forbes tried it. They even have Rihanna at 50 million, knowing damn well she’s worth 150 million.

  25. LB February 28, 2016

    Yes Mark, American Oxygen reached #71 on the UK charts


    • King Mark111 /.\ February 28, 2016

      It’s so easy to go #1, yet Beyonce haven’t since Bush was in office.

      • blue February 28, 2016

        i feel like i keep attacking you so i apologise for that as i dont mean to.
        But what happens if be releases a new single in a dead period and hits number 1? Her album comes after rihanna’s so her number 1 would be more recent then rihanna’s?

  26. Brandys Starr February 28, 2016

    How much has Anti sold out of interest?

    • HailBeysus February 28, 2016

      Kiii you don’t even want to know sis! Its that bad ??????

    • King Mark111 /.\ February 28, 2016

      1,208,000 US.

      • HailBeysus February 28, 2016

        Correction Rihanna says: less than 500k has been purchased ww and Samsung bought 1 million copies in bulk sales because you know i don’t care about sales anymore ?????

      • blue February 28, 2016

        she is at 0.9-1mil sold as chart news hasnt taken into account the other 400k purchased on the first day on tidal. 2mil if you factor in the samsung numbers.

      • LDN Chick February 28, 2016

        Rihanna didn’t sell 400k from Tidal which is why it’s not being taken into account. Nothing but propaganda. Stop being naive.

      • blue February 28, 2016

        tidal was able to prove the 1mil from the 1.4mil as coming from america and they claimed that the 400k was ww, billboard even confirmed that of that 400k only 400 came from the usa.

      • LDN Chick February 28, 2016

        Honey, until those sales are actually taken into account it remains nothing but propaganda. If they were genuine sales, they would fairly be taken into account. Until then, Rihanna has sold a little over 400k WW.

    • LDN Chick February 28, 2016

      406k WW according to chart news.

  27. HailBeysus February 28, 2016

    Anyway B6 needs to hurry and Bey Released!!!! I cannot wait any longer!!!

  28. King Mark111 /.\ February 28, 2016

    Look who’s waiting for an album now. lol

    • HailBeysus February 28, 2016

      Um still the Navy. Because clearly Anti was a joke fRih done punked y’all ?????????. PS the Hive won’t have to wait 4 years!!!

    • SWISH February 28, 2016

      they should still be listening to self-titled the way they paraded around like it was the greatest thing ever when it dropped

  29. i.DIABETIC ORACLE February 28, 2016

    Is SWEETBROWN-ANNA playing at the GEORGIA DOME OR PHILLIPS ARENA??? Cuz I. Heard Bey soldout there. Poor rih had to cancel phillips arena all together for the RR TOUR.

  30. IsntSheLovely February 28, 2016

    After the failure of ANTi Rihanna needs to go back to the drawing board.

    At point point of her career all her tour dates should be at least 90% percent sold out. Double platinum status of her album should be a cakewalk. She is not even 30 yet but she already losting all her power save her singles.

    • SWISH February 28, 2016

      LMFAO WTF is a “losted”?

  31. LB February 28, 2016

    LOL you guys said the same thing about Diamonds world tour and that sold out. Wait until the dates are actually played first.

  32. blue February 28, 2016

    forbes has rihanna at i think 150mil so i dont know what you are on. I dont trust forbes either because its all mostly guess work and none of the money made in the name of the artists actually ends up in their pockets and most of them have hands in a lot of other stuff and secret deals. So…but they list bey at about 250mil and if the hive can claim their initial estimate of 450mil they can claim the recent figures too.

    • Speak on it. February 28, 2016

      Google both Beyonce and Rihanna, the majority has Bey at “450 mil” and Rihanna at “160 mil” while Forbes has both ladies at 250, and 50 million. I don’t believe anything Forbes state’s as well, while the majority of other sources say otherwise about both ladies.

  33. IsntSheLovely February 28, 2016

    She did not relocate dates for the Diamond tour. She downsizing to smaller venues for that sell out concert.

  34. i.DIABETIC ORACLE February 28, 2016

    I can’t belivewe are debate about whether bey net gross is 250 or 450 when BOTH figures are significantly higher than Froganna whom barely tips 75 at best. & I’m gonna need receipts from @MARK on that 1.2 ticket sales lmao has it really gotten so bad for the DEADvy that they must steal pages from beys receipt book??? Difnt livenation just report bey sold 1 million tickets in. 10 days???

  35. LDN Chick February 28, 2016

    Who would’ve thought stadium status would have to downgrade to arenas because her fans aren’t purchasing the tickets…. The Hive are broke yet the only thing the Navy can invest in is a $1 single. Not buying the album either, unless it’s for free.

  36. HailBeysus February 28, 2016

    Forbes had Beyoncé networth at 350 million in 2012. Than they projected her networth to be $450 million by 2014. So how did she lose 100 million leading to 2014? She got a deal will pepsi for $50 million. Than started a world tour that grossed $187 million in 2013 alone. She got the rest of the money in 2014 to give her a touring gross of 229 million? Than another tour in summer of 14 that grossed 109million, than she earned an additional 54 million in 2015. Forbes is shady af. Ill go by what a majority of business media outlets report and that is Beys networth is $450 million! Yas she slay!!!

    • blue February 28, 2016

      again if you are gonna claim forbes numbers then claim forbes numbers and just accept the 250mil. Love how forbes is a 100 percent accurate until the numbers they report dont match your delusion. Simply all forbes did was realise how inflated they initial estimates were and decided to bring them down a bit. And those other media outlets are usually use forbes numbers too.

        So are you going to except Forbes number’s of Rihanna only being worth 50 mil, Oh ok, since those other media outlets have her at 160 mil.

  37. LDN Chick February 28, 2016

    And not them clinging to the 1 million in samsung purchased free streams that nobody recognises as sales to inflate her numbers. Yet they drag the little monsters for saying Gaga has sold 2.5 million.

  38. i.DIABETIC ORACLE February 28, 2016

    Oh nvm I thot mark was reporting on ticket sales. I pay good money to know how many ppl bought anti tickets. My guess is only 455k when tickets been on sell since december. Still I look forward to both shows. Seeing rih sing the anti ballads & seeing bey sing I was here & blue along with pretty hurts & even super power & no angel. I know shell kill 7/11 & formation. So glad rih & bey releasing album & tour same year. Its like getting to see ronda rousey get her a** best all over again.

    U fools do realize that net worth is just that… WORTH. how much they got in the bank is a diffrent story.
    My guess is $200 millio(180)n or slightly less for bey & rih like $30 million… froganna is all smoke & mirrors. Can’t wait to see the epic Struggle when she forced to sing higher and love on the brain live. Sweetbrownanna might be planning another bronchitis appointment as week speak.

    • blue February 28, 2016

      so much logic, networth is just worth and not whats actually in the bank accounts. I say rihanna prob has like 100mil in the bank and bey 20mil.

      Why are you coming for Beys networth? What is SheGoats again after 25 years in the Music business 70 million albums sold and 70 million singles sold? How many tours has she gone on again??? She betta be worth more than Bey or at least be showing us Mariah numbers ?????

    • Speak on it. February 28, 2016

      I’m no hive nor navy, but if Forbes has Beyonce at 250, and Rihanna at 50. Why is there shade being thrown.

  43. .:: Centurion (14 #1s) ::. February 28, 2016

    Looks like a 9th #1 for Rihanna in the UK is on the brink. That’s pretty evident. I don’t know why Jay Z’s wife had to be included in the post.

  44. XXX February 28, 2016

    It’s funny how the Navy are preaching Forbes like the gospel now but wanted to ignore it when it showed she was being slayed by The likes of Justin Bieber and even Katy Perry. Rihanna’s brand has and never will be as big as Beyonces.

  45. Annalise February 28, 2016

    When I saw “Rihanna & Beyonce Compete For UK #1 Spot”, I thought they were talking about Work vs. Runnin’, which was @ #3, Beybøla’s highest peaking single this decade in the UK, not Hymn for the Weekend. It’s belittling to her tbh. ?

  47. .:: Centurion (14 #1s) ::. February 28, 2016

    If you’re gonna compare Rihanna and Jay’s wife, at least make sure they’re on the same level. It’s embarrassing really.

    Rihanna becomes the BEST SELLING BLACK FEMALE artist of ALL TIME and 2nd Overall.

    According to RIAA, Rihanna has total certified albums US sales of 10 million & US digital single sales of 79 million bring her total to 89 million records sales in the US and 230 million total record sales worldwide. Rihanna is the best selling digital artist of all time.

    1. Madonna is the Best selling female artist of all time with worldwide record sales of 300 million and counting. No female artist has sold 300 million beside Madonna.

    2. Rihanna comes in at #2 with 230 million worldwide records sold.

    3. Mariah Carey is the 3rd best selling artist of all time with over 200 million records sold worldwide.

    4. Whitney Houston is the 4th best selling artist of all time with over 200 million records sold worldwide.

    5. Celine Dion is the 5th best selling artist of all time with over 200 million records sold worldwide.

  48. i.DIABETIC ORACLE February 28, 2016

    Anti in 1 full month only sold 250 K US just slightly more than chris & 470k as. Sales are declining fast. It hasn’t even sold 100k in the UK.

      Having 2 platinum albums and winning a Grammy is not considered successful? Remember I Bet went platinum and she didn’t fake the numbers like Flopanna did.

She could not put on a good performance if her life depended on it. You Rhitards make Flopanna out to be bigger than what she really is. No one outside of you Rhitards care about Flopanna. No matter how much she accomplishes this voodoo queen/ devil worshipper will NEVER be a legend.

      1.Chart success, millions sold, awards, records broken and created, brand, signed to a label, now compare the two.

      Fyi, Rihanna is an icon. What exactly is Ciara, R&B’s court jester.

And when we say Rihanna is the highest selling Black Female Artist of all time, Highest Digital AND of the Soundscan era. That’s a fact with numbers to back it up. When we say Rihanna is the 3rd artist with the most #1 singles, FACT! Nice link tho.

But we see why your mad cause fRih couldn’t even the list even tho she has like 684736373 albums out this decade! Hahahaha goes to further prove #1 don’t mean ish in the long run!!! Yas!!!

  60. King Mark111 /.\ February 28, 2016

    The Rihanna Vs Beyonce is so last dacade when they were tied at having the most #1’s in the 2000’s with 5. Someone haven’t had a #1 since, the other is also has the most #1’s singles this decade as well. The digital age started in 2004 or maybe 2005. Beyonce only have 1 album outside of that and even then, iTunes been out since 2002. So if she was a threat, her name (solo) would be somewhere near Rihanna’s in sales and streams. But it’s not. Cling to tours, no one cares because when you own your masters, you make just as musch from music sales and not 97% of it going to Sony.
    In the words of Icky, “Where’s your music? When I see your name on billboard then I will respond, until then BYE BYE.”
