Rihanna is not playing with ’em on the charts it seems.
Indeed, after watching her 8th album, ‘Anti,’ reascend to the Billboard 200’s perch this week, the singer continues to fend off stiff competition on the Hot 100 side of the pond as well. Working her way to a 5th week atop the chart with her latest Drake-assisted hit ‘Work,’ the dual occupancy of the charts’ top spots comes as quite the Rih-peat for the songstress (who achieved a similar feat with her last set ‘Unapologetic’ and its gem ‘Diamonds’).
But, before she gets too comfortable, danger of dethronement may come courtesy of ‘Dangerous Woman’ wailer Ariana Grande. After a well-received stint as host/musical guest on ‘SNL’ recently, ‘Woman,’ the official lead single/title track from her forthcoming third album, makes an impressive debut aboard the singles chart’s upper dectet this week. A feat, as originally reported here, which solidifies her position in history books as the first and only artist to debut in the top 10 of the Hot 100 with the lead single from his or her first three albums.
