Rihanna retains her tight grip on the top spot of the Hot 100 for a second week in a row with her most recent smash hit ‘Work.’

The Drake-assisted number, the first official release from her 8th album ‘Anti,’ continues to bring much sought redemption to the otherwise embattled project.  Not only giving the songstress her 14th chart-topper on the main tally, but also dominating the competition on every other front.

Via Billboard:

“Work,” released on Westbury Road/Roc Nation, holds atop the Hot 100 boosted by an 80 percent blast to 46.5 million U.S. streams in the tracking week ending Feb. 25, according to Nielsen Music, following the arrival of its official music video Feb. 22. Notably, the song sports 13.9 million Vevo on YouTube clicks for the week, up from 575,000 the prior frame. “Work” leads the Streaming Songs chart for a second week and tops the subscription services-based On-Demand Songs chart (18.1 million streams, up 19 percent) for a third frame.”

Impressive.  Now, check in below to see where all of your other faves landed:

      • Sweaterz March 4, 2016

        Even after Formation performed at SuperBowl, it’s still a flop. 🙂

    • rosy March 3, 2016

      Rih pocketed 26 million b**** your welfare checks is how much a month? You tried heifer

    • Tyler Makiavelli March 3, 2016

      The irony of being called the Navy & having to watch your fave’s career sink like that……
      #400K WorldWide

      • Bonquita March 3, 2016

      • rosy March 3, 2016

        Girl rih career is fine it’s your miserable ass need phychotic drug for the obsession u have for rih having 160 million for a black woman this young in the music industry is a feat so you need to focus on your retirement rihanna fenty will be alright your hate is getting old redundant

      • Tyler Makiavelli March 3, 2016

        Aww are u mad with yo mad ass? Yup! I think u mad. Put on a cape, you’ll be SUPER mad *Joseline Hernandez voice*

    • You tried March 3, 2016

      80 percent boost from STREAMS! The music industry has turned into a big joke?? That mean she’s not making any money neither is the hardworking writers and producers that actually put in the work for what they label a “song”! This isn’t a feat.. This is HYPE! Where’s the coins???? Who’s making money off of a #1 if no one purchased the single

      • Rihboy March 3, 2016

        Bet it won’t be a joke of your fave was streamed ! But it never is is it? Bye

    • Rihboy March 3, 2016

      I’m sure she is fine with that Samsung check. Nor do I think she feeds into numbers! That’s only a think the hive do! Inflate, over calculate, and stress the charts! Somewhere their fave seems to not reside. She will drop her surprise album and it will probably sell well at a fast rate. Because now it’s not about how much sells its about how fast she sells within a week or two. I hope she does Adele numbers or even Taylor swift numbers for that sake. Furthermore I hope she atleast gives something on the album single treatment that isn’t ratchet so it can actually chart. Conclusively, rih is just fine. Puma cutting checks, Samsung cut her a fat one, and I’m sure with valerian in production she will be cut a fat check. My baby is working. Not depending on propaganda and exploiting black lives and red lobster to trend. It’s so sad. You guys spend 80 percent of your time on here dedicated to Rihanna. With the same dry reads. She is done , she will never make it. Tell me about it. It’s been what almost ten years now. Love to hate; I wish I can empathize but ain’t no love hate with bey over here. I can see past the fraud that polished and prepped for delivery.

      • Bonquita March 3, 2016

        It’s been 11 years! Lol

  2. RealNegro March 3, 2016

    unless it’s above a dollar and twenty nine cents, then she only knows how to postpone, downgrade, or cancel

    • Lala March 4, 2016

  10. Tyler Makiavelli March 3, 2016

    TGJ is wrong for that pic 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😉😂😂😂😂

  11. YOUR MADGEsty March 3, 2016

    Congratulations, Big sis!

    ‘Work’ is such a s*** song and I Love it!

    It truly is nice to see an authentic Dancehall-oriented song, where you are actually singing in genuine Jamaican/Caribbean patois, at #1 on the Hot 100 again. This hasn’t happened since Sean Paul reigned between ’03-’06 as well as Shaggy prior to that.

    Now, I hope you release ‘Kiss It Better’ as your next single along with its music video at the same time as your 15th #1 singe is awaiting you followed by ‘Love On the Brain’ which hopefully will bring you your 16th. 😉

    • Lala March 4, 2016

      If she release those singles, they might as well hit that last nail in ANTI

      It should go as follow:

      “CLOSE TO YOU”

      with “Yeah, I said it” as the PRELUDE for the video.

      It’ll easily break the top 15… (And the sound has the Adele effect)

      Then they slide “KISS IT BETTER” as the follow up

      with “Desperado” as an INTERLUDE in the video.

      that should conclude this album….

      And if they want to go the extra mile, release “S** WITH ME” for the encore.

      Other than that, this is a LOVE or HATE album and we sorta need to forget it happened, although it had a few great tunes.

  12. SWISH March 3, 2016

    for her career to be on such a decline, she surely has a lot of y’all upset to the point y’all continue to use those late, recycled ass reads

  13. #TeamTinashe Stan(#JOYRIDE…..Coming Soon) March 3, 2016

    Lovely!
    P.s she looks like an Octopus in that pic lol hehe but she still beautiful.

  14. 👑💲Queen Molly💲👑 March 3, 2016

      Adeleeee…

  15. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy March 3, 2016

    I thought the island thot was done. I thought this was here ArtPop era. I thought she was flopping like a beached whale.

  16. YOUR MADGEsty March 3, 2016

    45+ Million streams for a song that is currently on its SIXTH week of release is incredible.

    .

    Anyhow, if and when any of you have the time, you should all read this article written and posted by @Billboard yesterday about Rihanna and her song ‘WORK’ and the cultural impact its having right now. It’s a great read. Here is a short quote:

    .

    “While mainstream critics may be uncomfortable with Rihanna’s gyrations or misconstrue her patois as gibberish, “Work” – much like Beyonce’s “Formation” – is an example of an unapologetic black woman proudly showing her heritage at a time when our politics are dominated by #BlackLivesMatter and Donald Trump’s racist, xenophobic and misogynistic tirades. Black culture is often only recognized after it’s been appropriated by the mainstream, but Rihanna puts it front and center”.

    .

    This is why I love my Queens, Rih. & Bey. The two most successful Black female pop stars of the 21st century thus far and the best selling Black female artists of the 21st century thus far also, both dominating our current Pop culture atmosphere like the ICONS they are.

    That picture tho 💀💀💀

  18. Brandy star March 3, 2016

    That single is wack.

    • RihRih March 3, 2016

      You Brandy fans are for ever talking s***, considering who you all stan for, and considering your fav’s last #1 anything was in 99.

      Let me ask you this, WHERE is Brandy in the records books??? Rihanna is in it, Beyonce is in it, and even MONICA, OPP lol and we all know how you Brandy fans hate Monica.

      Monica is the youngest recording act to ever have two consecutive chart-topping hits on the Billboard Top R&B Singles chart. She also became the first artist to top the US Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart in the 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s. In 2010, Billboard listed Monica at number 24 on its list of the Top 50 R&B and Hip Hop Artists of the past 25 years, where as, Brandy Vehicular manslaughter Norwood is #40.

      Now worry less about Rih, and more about your subway singing murdering flop fav.

  19. blue March 3, 2016

    with a 3rd week in the bag and no competition for a 4th baby gonna rule for sometime

  20. Weezy Tha Goat March 3, 2016

    Too bad that album is flopping.

    • Jemina Nelson March 4, 2016

      PRAY TELL, HOW RIHANNA’S ANTI ALBUM AT NUMBER 2,ON THE BILLBOARD 200 CHART IS FLOPPING. ONLY SECOND TO EMPRESS ADELE. IF ANYTHING, RIHANNA’S NEW ALBUM, HAS SURPASSED HER OLDER EFFORTS. JUST REMEMBER, A DISNEY MOVIE OUTDID MRS.CARTER’S BEYONCE ALBUM. IF IT WERE NOT, FOR THAT SURPRISE ROLL OUT, IT WOULD HAVE FLOPPED. KEEP OUT OF RIHANNA’S BUSINESS, AND HOPE FATYONCE DON’T FALL ON STAGE, WHILE COPYCATTING ORIGINAL TALENT, WITH THE FORMATION TRAP TOUR, B****!

    • King B March 3, 2016

      While you’re at it, don’t forget to look for Aaliyah’s single. Might as well search for her Grammy, UK million selling album and a position on FORBES list. 🙂

  22. No favs, just here for the music March 3, 2016

    At least this time around it’s acknowledged that this is Rihanna’s song and not Drakes lol! He’s a feature after all

    • Jemina Nelson March 3, 2016

      CHILE, IF THIS WAS DRAKE’S SONG, IT WOULD NOT BE NUMBER 1, ON THE MAIN BILLBOARD CHART. LOVE DRAKE AND RIHANNA COLLABS. NOT EVEN NICKI COULD PRODUCE THAT KIND OF CHEMISTRY!
