Thanks to Rihanna and Fifth Harmony, there are two ‘Work’s rocking the upper echelon of the Billboard Hot 100 this week.
Full story below…
Per the latest tally, Bajan wailer RiRi extends her stay atop of the chart with the Drake assisted ‘Work.’
Cementing her status as one of today’s top digital dominators, the 28-year-old’s feat is powered by gargantuan streaming numbers for the Dancehall kissed cut (28 million US streams in the week ending March 31st).
Radio remains a major component of the song’s success, with the track boasting 120 million audience impressions within said tracking week.
Elsewhere, Epic’s Fifth Harmony have ample cause for celebration.
‘Work From Home,’ the lead single from their sophomore album ‘7/27’ (due May 20th), has become the group’s first Stateside top 10 -rising #12-#10. Prior to now, the Platinum coated ‘Worth It’ was their closest effort (peaking at #12).
Digital sales of the Ty Dolla $ign featured single peaked at 89,000 by the close of counting, while amassed US streams were to the tune of 14.4 million (up 20% from the preceding week). On the radio front, the song is sitting pretty with a colossal audience of 49 million.
Kudos where due! Granted 5H get our vote for the better ‘Work,’ it’s clear both songs have had a commanding spell on the masses. It will be interesting to see how follow-up tracks fare in the wake of the strong foundation both cuts have established.
