Chart Check [Hot 100]: Rihanna Reigns Atop Hot 100 For 3rd Week With ‘Work’

Published: Thursday 10th Mar 2016 by Rashad

We don’t know if Rihanna has cast a spell on music lovers with her latest chart-topper, but whatever she’s done it’s obviously worked, worked, worked, worked, worked.

For, after missing the mark with 3 prior singles leading up to the release of her highly anticipated 8th opus, ‘Anti,’ the diva’s 4th go at it (assisted by Drake) proved to be her lucky strike as the song continues its domination of the Hot 100 for a 3rd week.

Elsewhere, Fifth Harmony are also proving hard work (and a catchy single to assist) does pay off.  For after launching their latest single, ‘Work From Home,’ to VEVO with its sexy construction-inspired video, the group may be well on their way to seeing their new song find a home in the Hot 100’s top 10.

See their impressive debut and more below:

    Too bad she doesn’t have any competition right now. I guess waiting till Taylor Swift and Adele went on tour helped.

    • What Now March 10, 2016

      Right because they aren’t relevant when they tour right? FOH. Adele is slaying without trying, so Rihanna @ #1 is a big deal.

  2. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy March 10, 2016

    Work work work work work. Congrats Rih! Show these peasants how to reign on top of the charts. I can’t wait to see you on TUESADAY in Miami! I’ve got my blunts pre-rolled, my liquor on deck, and my happy gummy bears too!

    • Delroy Dussard March 11, 2016

      What by putting out one of the most rachet videos out to date so that the video streams keep her at the top

  3. Cinnamon Girl March 10, 2016

    But they’re still giving away free tickets to her concert! Her tour still has plenty of tickets left and her Anti album hasn’t gone gold yet! It is dropping from the charts real fast! Lol!

    • blue March 10, 2016

      its platinum though

      • Cinnamon Girl March 10, 2016

        Sweetie it is not platinum. She did not sell 1 million copies on her own. That’s why Billboard didn’t count the 1 million

      • blue March 10, 2016

        billboard tracks sales, they do not hand out certifications, she has currently pulled enough units to be certified 3x gold, thats 1.5million units moved in the usa.

      • Tyler Makiavelli March 10, 2016

        Is Billboard counting the 1 mill copies that Samsung BOUGHT? The 480,000 that Anti’s EARNED? Or both?

    • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy March 10, 2016

      You’s a mutherfvkin lie! It’s #3 on the Billboard 200, #1 on the R&B albums chart, and it still sold more than Macklemore’s debut. You’re disdain, frustration, and envy of Rihanna should never cause you to tell such fibs.

      • Cinnamon Girl March 10, 2016

        Anti is number 8 on the Billboard charts, still hasn’t gone gold, the tour still hasn’t
        sold out

    • Queen Phaedra March 10, 2016

      Chile I did hear about an irrelevant former r&b star struggling to sell out the nearest dollar tree tour in Atlanta but that ain’t my business hunny. Sips carrot juice elegantly?

      • What Now March 10, 2016

        KIII DRAG SALTY BOY

  4. HailBeysus March 10, 2016

    Yas @ Fifth Harmony slaying the charts! Im laughing at their haters saying the wouldn’t get another top 20 hit.

  5. Stephon Jackson March 10, 2016

    Adele’s big ass let ha get this number 1 hit way too easy. Werk is a bop tho.

    • Cinnamon Girl March 10, 2016

      Oh honey Adele is not worried about Rihanna. She sold 8 million copies in the US alone in one week, her tour is sold out, plus she has talent

  6. #TeamTinashe Stan (#JOYRIDE…….) March 10, 2016

    Congratulations to this black woman! “Work” is so annoying to me now but good job.

    P.s are my eyes deceiving me or is that THE GAME’s picture on Drake’s chart positions slot? ?

    • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy March 10, 2016

      No your eyes are correct. Billboard is on some white people fvckery type sh*t right now.

    • HailBeysus March 10, 2016

      DEATH!!! IT IS TOO ??????????

  7. .:: Centurion (14 #1s) ::. March 10, 2016

    SLAY!

  8. YOUR MADGEsty March 10, 2016

    Do my eyes deceive or is this the first Rihanna post in more three five days?

    .

    Anyhow, congrats Rih. What shocks me even more however is that Rihanna is the ONLY BLACK FEMALE ARTIST to have charted at #1 on Hot 100 this entire 2010’s decade thus far. As sad as that is, it’s more of a showcase of Rihanna’s ability to make 90% of songs she releases or sings a hit.

    .

    SLAY, BIG SIS. 😉

    • Cinnamon Girl March 10, 2016

      You need to thank her management for buying her songs for her

      • blue March 10, 2016

        PRESSED!!!!

      • why oh why March 10, 2016

        too bad ciara’s management didn’t buy her songs, she probably would’ve still had a record deal if they did.

  9. ??Queen Molly?? March 10, 2016

    So happy for her. Hope Selena has a career like hers

    • HailBeysus March 10, 2016

      Because Cerror could neva ?????????????????

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy March 10, 2016

        Hahaha. Hail you’s a mess! You know what, it’s sad to see the perilous plight Ciara went through, especially considering that Ciara has more talent in her p*nis than Selena has in her entire being.

      • HailBeysus March 10, 2016

        GHSUSOKEHQHOWBDNXIJSBDUSHSJSHSBDUSB DEATH!!! Not more talent in her pênis than Selena has in her being. ??????????

      • ??Queen Molly?? March 10, 2016

        Dont be petty

      • Tyler Makiavelli March 10, 2016

        LOL @ “Ciara has more talent in her penis.” *death*

      • ??Queen Molly?? March 10, 2016

        Ugh you guys are so annoying bye

      • Tyler Makiavelli March 10, 2016

        The PRINCE is here….

      • What Now March 10, 2016

        @Truth DT468DFU88ESSYU9GBS3DH. I AM CRYING. Not Ciara’s penis…

  10. Weezy Tha Goat March 10, 2016

    Congrats I Guess. I mean the Navy needs something to give them a reason to wake up in the morning.

  11. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy March 10, 2016

    I see that Cinnamon Toast Crunch doesn’t have sh*t to say once I showed that broad them receipts.

    • Cinnamon Girl March 10, 2016

      Oh sweetie I’m right here. I stand corrected on the album number but she still hasn’t gone gold and she only sold 22, 000 in pure album sales last week. Bloop!

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy March 10, 2016

        Ahhh here comes the hêrpes flare up. She sold 64k last week. Go pretend that you have some worth and actually do research, or do I need to do all the work for you again!

  12. HailBeysus March 10, 2016

    Awww Molly don’t leave were just getting started HAHAHAHAHA

    • Tyler Makiavelli March 10, 2016

      Molly the Maid is a prime example that when you play with bees you get stung!
      Buzz, buzz b**** haha

      • HailBeysus March 10, 2016

        Ahaha bitxh tried again with me in the Bey post. She was gone in 2.5 seconds thinking everyone already forgot about Annalise and David exposing her ass yesterday kiii

      • ??Queen Molly?? March 10, 2016

        I never been into bullys and weak people who have to attack one person while clinging to a bunch of others

      • HailBeysus March 10, 2016

        @Moldy Vaginaa BITXH!!! Back the fuxk up! Bullys!?!?!? We playing victim now? Uh ah bitxh! Where’s that backbone you claimed you had the other day!?!? You don’t get to play the bully victim card, not when TGJ users legit wanted to turn you into the feds KIII!!!!

      • Tyler Makiavelli March 10, 2016

        @Molly the Maid
        Well, you should have that about that before you threw around all of those racially offensive remarks! You started this beef. You went overboard. Don’t dish it out if you can’t take it .

      • ??Queen Molly?? March 10, 2016

        But did I not apologize for my racially offensive remarks?

      • ??Queen Molly?? March 10, 2016

        Yet you guys are telling to commit suicide everyday and so much other things it shows that you all are miserable bitter trash.

      • Tyler Makiavelli March 10, 2016

        You called me a DARK B**** two days ago, you f****** idiot!
        If your apology was genuine you wouldn’t keep doing it.

  13. ??Queen Molly?? March 10, 2016

    I clearly have Selena in my avi but you guys continue bringing up Ciara smh its tired and fuckkked up since im not repping her and yall new pet cinnamonswirl does…

    • Tyler Makiavelli March 10, 2016

      Switching teams when times get tough huh?
      Well, that is what flip flops do best.

      • ??Queen Molly?? March 10, 2016

        But atleast have respect for ya knew girl cinnamon she fuccks w yall and yall dragging the girl she reps not cool.

      • Tyler Makiavelli March 10, 2016

        IDGAF! There are Hive members on this sight like , Metzo, who are civil towards you. YET you still drag Beyonce. Where was all of that “respect” at then? Even after our falling out I didn’t drag Ciara, I commended her but you just could leave well enough alone. The gloves are off now!

    • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy March 10, 2016

      You know Molly, whoever you stan for this week is entirely up to you. However, Ciara is far more talented and respected than Selena. I mean Selena has went from a Miley Cyrus replacement on Disney Channel to becoming Taylor Swift’s pet to physically wipe her ass every time T Swift takes a sh*t.

      • ??Queen Molly?? March 10, 2016

        I love cici she was the first artist I stood for but as you can see im not repping her rn.. Why must I be fuckiiing judged for who I stan for? Why do you tyler hail beysus and the rest of the haters care so much

  14. Cinnamon Girl March 10, 2016

    @Blue you are a damn liar! Anti has not gone platinum yet! Its been out for a month and still hasn’t reached platinum status! Her album sales are dropping every week! That’s the problem with Rihanna’s camp. You guys lietoo damn much and tthat’s exactly why she’s not being respected in the music industry

    • What Now March 10, 2016

      Just like your fav’s last 4 albums… ☕☕☕☕☕☕☕

      • Cinnamon Girl March 10, 2016

        Anti is not platinum. Sorry. Having a company buy your records for you is cheating and you get no respect

      • .:: Centurion (14 #1s) ::. March 10, 2016

        Sis, ANTI is Platinum by the only governing body that hands out music certifications, which is the one and only RIAA. Billboard nor Nielson certify records and hand out certifications. Stop crying; as a matter of fact, cry some more cuz Ci-trānny’s album certification aint coming until the second-coming of Jesus. ?

    • .:: Centurion (14 #1s) ::. March 10, 2016

      Rather focus on Ci-trānny’s Government funded Bathroom World tour. Rather focus on Ci-trānny selling out those Basin sink section, Bathtub standing section, and those VIP toilet stalls.

      • Cinnamon Girl March 10, 2016

        Don’t worry about Ciara. She is secure with herself. She doesn’t have to lie about album sales like Frihanna does

  15. Taylor swifts number 1 fan!!! March 10, 2016

    Lukas graham inside the top 10!

  16. ??Queen Molly?? March 10, 2016

    All the hate I receive is crazy. I actually feel like the people on this site would do harm to me if we ever crossed paths. Its weird and just shows that obsessive online stalkers are real.

    • HailBeysus March 10, 2016

      Hahaha naw bitxh lets not play victim. Where’s that backbone at now hoeee??? Ain’t nobody stalking you. You stay dragging your ass into my reply sections so im here to finish what your pathetic ass started.

    • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy March 10, 2016

      Molly ain’t nobody worried about your fvck ass…

      • ??Queen Molly?? March 10, 2016

        Yet your here

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy March 10, 2016

        Molly you’re just funny to fvck with like the obese kid in the neighborhood down the street. Now, I will say that I don’t understand your like for Selena, but hey that’s all you.

    • Cinnamon Girl March 10, 2016

      You played yourself. How are you going to Stan for Ciara but bash Beyonce and Stanffor Rihanna. Cici don’t fawk with Rihanna. If you were a C squad you would know this. Rihanna is pressed and jealous of Ciara. Beyonce and Cici are cool with each other that’s why everyone’s clowning you

      • Smh March 10, 2016

        Why would Rihanna be jealous of Ciara? ?

      • OVO Gurl March 10, 2016

        Yet Bey hasn’t mentioned Ciara’s name since 2005 LMAO.

  17. shakira stan March 10, 2016

    Why is when we were young flopping didn’t people say it will block work from going 1?
    And did formation reach a new peak at the under bubbling chart ?
    Not try everything a Disney song making more impact than flopation.

    • Smh March 10, 2016

      Gurl pls enough with the idiocy
      How do you expect a song that’s not available for purchase to chartin the main chart? The song is not even available on Spotify and other streaming services except for Tidal, it’s actually doing well when you look at the facts properly without being biased

  18. Smh March 10, 2016

    “Ciara has more talent in her penis”???????
    Y’all are going to hell for that looooooool

    • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy March 10, 2016

      I’m sorry…I just couldn’t resist.

  19. Cinnamon Girl March 10, 2016

    All these number 1s and yet your tour is still not sold out. Everyone wants to see Queen Bey

  20. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy March 10, 2016

    By the way, who is the Cinnamon Oatmeal Bran b*tch? Like where did she come from? I can tell that she was missed opportunity of a good nut swallowed.

    • OVO Gurl March 10, 2016

      I think she’s #JACKIE

  21. HailBeysus March 10, 2016

    @Molly gurrrl Im gunna need you to stop playing victim and reflect on why you get so much hate/backlash on TGJ. You stay leaving comments with Tyler and Annalise’s names in it. You stay dragging your ass into my reply sections. You leave these ignorant comments that come off to many TGJ users as racists. You ain’t no Angel sis so stop! The fact you got Navy and Hive member’s dragging your ass in the same post is a KII itself lmfao!! Keep my name out your comment sections and stay away from my reply section and i can keep it civil ?!

    • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy March 10, 2016

      Molly ran to the Janet post like El Chapo from the feds.

      • HailBeysus March 10, 2016

        Ha! So much for having a backbone. Bitxh just had a spinal collapse!

    • Annalise March 10, 2016

      LMAOOOO! READ ABIT @hailbeysus!!!! I was going to give her some time to regrow her hairline, but she continued to mention my name EVERY single damn day until I responded. Now she wants to play victim FOH!

  22. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy March 10, 2016

    Molly has achieved something no Beyonce performance or Rihanna video has been able to do which is have the Navy and the Hive laughing together. Now, we may be laughing at you, but nevertheless it is still a tremendous feat.

    • ??Queen Molly?? March 10, 2016

      But your the only navy laughing

      • Tyler Makiavelli March 10, 2016

        *scrolls through post*
        She won’t be for long.

      • HailBeysus March 10, 2016

        Chile, stop lying multiple Navy member’s have dragged you on this site since you started up with the Hive again.

      • Annalise March 10, 2016

        No the other Navi are laughing, but they are too fake to admit it. The same navi you are deepthroating were the same ones that dragged you relentlessly last year. KIII did you think they miraculously started claiming you overnight? Kiii, nope, they are just using you to p*ss the hive off (but all we are doing is laughing!)

  23. .:: Centurion (14 #1s) ::. March 10, 2016

    Bìtch stop worrying about Rihanna who’s getting 8-figure pay checks unlike Ci-trānny who’s suing its baby daddy for unpaid child support checks.

  24. Tyler Makiavelli March 10, 2016

    @Molly the Maid
    Let me clear a few things up for yo racist ads:
    1.) The Hive never needed to partner up with YOU as allies. We had no proper competition worth destroying in the first place *sips tea*
    2.) You and I will never be cool. Once a b**** got beef with me, we gon beef FOREVA *Cardi B voice*. Keep my name out of your comments.

  25. ??Queen Molly?? March 10, 2016

    Calling me racist is the most annoying because im not. Tyler sir I am sincerely apologizing for my racial remarks towards you and anyone else you dont have to accept it but its real.

    • Tyler Makiavelli March 10, 2016

      Let me ask you a question! If the apology that you gave a few months back was actually genuine, why did you call me a dark b**** TWO DAYS AGO!?

      • ??Queen Molly?? March 10, 2016

        Because I knew it would get under your skin.

      • Tyler Makiavelli March 10, 2016

        No s*** Sherlock! You weren’t genuinely sorry the first time. You say racist s*** to intentionally upset people and now you wanna play the victim?
        To hell with your apology.

      • ??Queen Molly?? March 10, 2016

        No boo I get in the heat of the moment and say shitttt I may regret. Like I said you dont have to accept im just letting you know that im not proud of the those comments.

      • Tyler Makiavelli March 10, 2016

        If that’s the case, then you’re always in the heat of the moment considering how you’ve made multiple racist comments since you’ve been here. See where saying things in the heat of the moment gets you, “proud biracial”!??
        LEARN SOMETHING FROM THIS!

      • ??Queen Molly?? March 10, 2016

        I hear u.

      • Annalise March 10, 2016

      • ??Queen Molly?? March 10, 2016

        Yea i was trying to prove a point because ppl were saying iggy was racist over old tweets. Me seeing that comment is embarrassing af tho

      • Annalise March 10, 2016

        I’m embarrassed for you, and the irony is you ARE in fact a racist!

  26. ??Queen Molly?? March 10, 2016

    @tyler we dont have to be cool but lets keep race out our arguments thanks

    • Tyler Makiavelli March 10, 2016

      How tf are you going to say all of this racist s*** and expect people not to call you racist ???? You sound ignorant.

      • ??Queen Molly?? March 10, 2016

        I get that… But at the same your very sensitive

      • Tyler Makiavelli March 10, 2016

        I’m sensitive for being offended by some racist s*** that you said?

    • Annalise March 10, 2016

      KIIIII but you’re a racist fat whoore, so why wouldn’t we bring up race you dumb fat sh**. The fact that you had to create that PorshaWilliamsStan / QueenPhaedra / NeneLeakesStan account just to claim you wasn’t a racist, shows that you are CLEARLY a racist. And you had the nerve to lie on me. Go fvck yourself again

      • ??Queen Molly?? March 10, 2016

        I wasn’t talking to you stop making tylers battles your own no ones worried about you like at all creep.

      • Annalise March 10, 2016

        KIIIII did you really think I was gonna stand aside and watch the entire site drag you without joining in? B*tch I’m making up for lost time, and my foot is always going to be on your neck! KNOW THAT! and why don’t explain why you decided to LIE yesterday, when david exposed your trolling ass as the ‘Porsha’ troll.

  27. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy March 10, 2016

    Now back to the main b*tch of the hour, RIHANNA, I’m going to need her to have a video for Kiss It Better ready ASAP. We don’t need no, I need time to film a video in between tour bullsh*t. You get it done now, and you get it done right.

  28. Rihboy March 10, 2016

    It’s funny how when it debuted it was like at 7. 95 percent of you in here said it would never surface. But now it’s congrats Rih? You h03s are so phony. Anyways I still love work, but I’m reAdy for her to start pushing another single. Melissa posted a picture on Instagram with the caption hello desperado. I hope it’s a video drop????.

    • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy March 10, 2016

      Oh HELL NO! FVCKN Desparado. I don’t wanna hear that sh*t on the radio. If she does a video for Desparado before, KIB, LOB, and Same Ol’ Mistakes, I WILL be pissed. Desparado is cool when you’re chillin with a blunt, but it’s no major hit. She has some soon to be classics that need special treatment.

  29. ??Queen Molly?? March 10, 2016

    I don’t get how someone who is mixed with black can be a racist to blacks but ok.

    • Tyler Makiavelli March 10, 2016

      You’re still trying to justify your actions! LMAO. This proves that you are not genuinely sorry for a damn thing you said.
      Calling me a “dark b****,” wasnt offensive? Calling people “ghetto blacks” and “dirty Mexicans” isn’t offensive??
      You’re an Uncle Tom, a sellout!

      • ??Queen Molly?? March 10, 2016

        Idk what else to say or do Tyler so we can end this convo right now. I’ll stay out your way ✌

      • Tyler Makiavelli March 10, 2016

        Good! From this day forth, expect to be held accountable for what you say

  30. LB March 10, 2016

    In the meantime, Formation which was performed to over 100 million people has fallen into the doldrums of the bubbling under charts.

    • Tyler Makiavelli March 10, 2016

      B**** shut tf up! You’re pushing 30 , the oldest member on this site. Childish nor unemployed are attractive. I’m starting to get tired of your old ass

  31. Annalise March 10, 2016

    This AÑUSliyah Stan is still leaving comments when I’m gone!!!! LMAO when did I say I was a receptionist u dimwitted cûnt. Do you want to meet Aaliyah in heaven, coz I can personally arrange that. Just type down your name, number and email address so I can snap dem bones !!

  32. Oscar March 10, 2016

    surprised work is doing so well, I didn’t see it at first, but I guess radio deals do wonders.
