Chart Check [Hot 100]: P!nk Soars Into Top 10 With ‘Fire’

Published: Wednesday 8th Jun 2016 by Rashad
rihanna thatgrapejuice p!nk billboard hot 100

Fans hoping there would be a three-peat of Bajan beauty Rihanna‘s name in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 were sorely disappointed when the singer’s megahit, ‘Work,’ was worked right out of the upper dectet by P!nk and her latest hit ‘Just Like Fire’ (found on Disney’s ‘Alice Through the Looking Glass’) soundtrack.

Coming as the trapeze-loving singer’s first swing into the top 10 since 2013 (15th overall), ‘Fire’ blazes her name into 4th place in Hot 100 history books (among women).

#Navy needn’t worry, however.  With the reappearance of Calvin Harris‘s ‘This Is What You Came For’ and a new #8 peak of ‘Needed Me,’ the latest lifted from ‘Anti,’ Rih is still pulling double duty in the upper rankings of the singles chart.

Could she be well on her way to nabbing her 15th #1?  Time will tell.  Until then, tuck in below to see where she and the rest of today’s movers and shakers landed on the refreshed Hot 100 via TGJ’s weekly ‘Chart Check’:

    So Rihanna has got 3 songs in the top 25, two of which are top ten, slay.

    • Keri Qween June 8, 2016

      And shes paying her singles complete dust at that lol . better to have your songs have longevity than for all songs from your album chart and then fall off the next week like some.

      • Tori June 8, 2016

        Girl…Keri is still TRYING to get the green light from her label to even put a buzz track, you have no room to talk about Lemonade whole album charting when it’s sales are higher than both KerisKeeps album plus streams combimcombined .

      • JOHNVIDAL June 8, 2016

        You know what´s better? Have some recognition, have talent and SELL REAL ALBUMS! That´s definitely much better 🙂 These delusional and slow minds kill me… 🙂

      • Keri Qween June 8, 2016

        Grandpa John don’t throw yourself into a stroke please with all these essays.

        Still mad that Gaga and her gimmicks burned out in 5 years whereas Rihanna is still topping charts and getting plaques 10+ years in her career. Where were you when Artpop flopped?

  2. truthtea June 8, 2016

    And none of those songs Rih has in those positions will EVER be remembered! She always has and always will be an “in-the-moment-act!” And not to mention they’re all BASIC songs!

    • Blue June 8, 2016

      Atleast people r listening to her songs, People need to have heard songs for them to remember them

    • Blue June 8, 2016

      A song being dedcribed as a feminist anthem is basic?

    • Molly June 8, 2016

      Kiiii but where are lemonades memorable songs? Kii they sure aren’t charting or making any impact like rihs.. This is the year of RIHANNA #deal

    • JOHNVIDAL June 8, 2016

      One of the biggest examples is Work. Must be the biggest joke of a long running #1 ever. In fact, despite being ready for radio. This time thankfully I have barely heard it anywhere in Spain. Radio has paid it dust this time. She fades the moment she has not a singel out. These last couple of years have been a struggle. Work is the thing that has saved her a little bit, even though it is a laughable song and success. Very fake. She´ll keep on struggling more and more. Singles success ends sooner or later. She doesn´t have talent to maintain a career or interest in her once the commercial singles are done. Hell she cannot sell albums now that she has this supposedly big hits LOL

      • Rihboy June 8, 2016

        You are so mad lol. Single success definitely plays a role in song remembrance. Like when bey had single ladies! It was a hot song that everyone til this day remembers. Drunk in love I think falls in line of being another song that people will probably not forget. But as for the rest, nobody is really checking for them. Nothing off of lemonade has become a hit. And the album isnonlybselling do to its exclusiveness, and the movie carried behind it. Visually interesting but sonically one of her most boring works as to date. Which is why nothing is carrying this era but gimmicks. Divorce, black lives matter,!jumping around in water on stage, and more shenanigans. Her singles are flopping so hard. Where as Rihanna put her album out months ago, and has two songs still charting in the top 20; alongside a new single with Calvin than has sustained and peaked even higher. In the moment? That would only be fitting for everything on lemonade.

      • wrosy3 June 8, 2016

        You can’t even afford to go to Spain stop the lies b**** I Been there several times and heard it broke section A tramp

      • JOHNVIDAL June 8, 2016

        LOl I LIVE in Spain. Work has barely been on radio, compared to Rihanna´s previous “ready-for-radio-easy-singles”. There´s a reason why she has flopped hard this time worldwide. The singles are not working. And it´s her only saving grace since sales based on talent or people respecting her name doesn´t work for her. She always needs a hit on radio to shove it down people´s throats and sell at least decently after some months. Now, she´s not even achieving that.

      • Kayla C June 8, 2016

        Girl RELAX.

      • wrosy3 June 8, 2016

        Stop the lies you crack face looking ho anyone can come on here and say they live in another country I see you broke as on here many times and you fail to mention you have not heard rih music in Europe gtfoh trying to diminish this woman accomplishments you live in the gutter somewhere you have no money to travel anywhere but a bus ticket to welfare office

      • HALF AMAZIN June 8, 2016

        Because you don’t hear “Work” on the radio in Spain, it’s a flop? Lol you can’t be serious.
        Then everyone you Stan for are flops as well.

      • JOHNVIDAL June 8, 2016

        Half Amazing
        Can´t you read for real then? LMAO Try to understand complete comments. I didn´t say that.

      • HALF AMAZIN June 8, 2016

        I read your rant @JohnVIDAL and you certainly implied that. But it doesn’t matter your rants are only amusing for the Uncle Grandpa teas they give off!

    • Kev Kev June 8, 2016

      If you had said this when she first came out it would be one thing. She has been killing the charts for 11 years so deal! People always bashing on riri but she doesn’t care and will quit when she’s ready to. The Reign just won’t let up

  3. The Kpop Guy, Matt~ June 8, 2016

    I thought they said “sorry” and “flopping lessons” was coming to slay?

    • Molly June 8, 2016

      Kiiiiii….. This is embarrassing.

    • HALF AMAZIN June 8, 2016

      Sorry and Daddy Lessons are awful songs. Formation, freedom, & Hold up are all that’s tolerable

  4. Molly June 8, 2016

    No lemonade singles in top 20? Yet Riri has 3 songs in it #slayage ki

    • The Kpop Guy, Matt~ June 8, 2016

      It reminds me of 2013 when they said “flopping hurts” and “X-Flop” were coming for blood

  5. myloyaltybelongstoriri June 8, 2016

    now that’s my girl.haters gonna hate,it’s allowed but they can’t take away her shine neither can they stop her from breaking records and snatching wigs.she’s here to stay 4eva.y’all gat to deal with it cause no other female artist is killing it like RIHANNA ROBYN FENTY

  6. IStan4Rihanna. June 8, 2016

    Rise “Needed Me” and “This Is What You Came For”. RISE!


    “Too Good” and “Nothing Is Promised” is coming to slay also.



  7. Numbers don’t lie June 8, 2016

    All calvin harris and Rihanna need to do is release a video and the song will be #1

    • Kev Kev June 8, 2016

      it’s coming. There’s always a strategy to slay people when the time is right. She will with TWYCF

  8. JOHNVIDAL June 8, 2016

    Hmm… last time I checked That Rihanna new trial at a quick #1 was barely in the top20 on sales (cheap digital sales anyway) on itunes. This is all a joke really with streaming and all. It´s perfect for talentless models like her. Not that I care about Beyonce as everybody knows (hell I still haven´t listened to any song from Lemonade, I´ll do it, but still haven´t) but seeing h** these retarded Rihanna stans who cannot comprehend Beyonce is so much successful always talk about her singles… Beyonce had one of her singles in the top10 last time I checked in real sales on itunes, like I said, Rihanna barely top20.
    Rihanna is a joke. Accept that once and for all in your mind. Beyonce sold in a week or two from her album what Rihanna has sold in months. Always keep that if your slow minds before you try to come for anybody. Rihanna had to cancel her labum last year cause nobody was taking her “more mature sound” seriously. And then, after cooking new generic songs in a few weeks, she still has struggled so badly. You can talk about Work, and that´s all she has: realesing generic and forgettable songs written by others where she barely talk-sings and pray it´ll stick with streaming audiences. She just had the biggest flop of any of these pop girls. You just don´t want to see it and will keep talking about the nowadays super-cooked and laughable singles charts, she´s got nothing left aprt from that.

    • SWISH June 8, 2016

      lmfaoo nobody has time to read that dissertation

      • JOHNVIDAL June 8, 2016

        Rihanna fans don´t like reading and facts and talent. I know 🙂

    • SailorMoon June 8, 2016

      Rihanna always has you so mad! Lmao It’s hilarious! You try and act all mature and balanced but then when Rihanna is involved you loose it and come off like a crazed overzealous hater! Your annoying to read but your meltdowns are life for me! Proceed!

      • HALF AMAZIN June 8, 2016

        ????? I know right?!?! It speaks on gimmicks yet stans for Gaga. LOL I CANT

    • Kev Kev June 8, 2016

      clearly you spent the time to write and Obituary on a person you don’t care about’s post.

  9. King Mark111 June 8, 2016

    I’m really surprised by Needed Me still. If she would had made a better video, if would probably hit #1 or top 5. Where’s Beyonce singles? This Era burned out so quickly, how sad?

    • IStan4Rihanna. June 8, 2016

      In regards to “Needed Me”, I completely agree. Prior to it to being blocked by VEVO, it had already garnered “750K+” views during the first 450 minutes of its release – it could have easily surpassed the several million mark within a day given the anticipation for it. As great as the views are for it now (given the content), it doesn’t have much replay value amongst the GP which is stalling its video streams but the audio streams are still superb. Also: 6 = Rhythmic radio; 7= Urban radio; 40 = Pop radio; 24 = Overall radio.


      The song is slowly growing and becoming a hit and we need not address its SPOTIFY slayage – it’ll hit the top 5 soon enough though ‘TIWYCF’ will get there before it. 😉

    • JOHNVIDAL June 8, 2016

      Girl which era has burnt so quickly when she has sold way more than Rihanna???? Are you aware Beyonce is killing it with her tour once again? What has burnt out exactly? She obviously doesn´t release singles for radio (prepared for nowadays radio taste I mean). It´s obvious. And it´s obvious once you are over 30 radio tends to not use you. Apart from that can´t you f****** see your point is retarded? Beyonce murdered Rihanna in a WEEK!! LOL I eman, come on! Are you aware Rihanna´s last album has flopped and that she couldn´t even release her album last year? Are you aware that for the current campaign for this album she has already released like 7 singles and only Work finally got the quick attention radio and streaming asks? She released 3 last year for the cancelled album and now she has released like 3 plus that new collabo, you know, those ones she also releases frequently to have as many opportunities as she can of having a cheap single that “works”. Let´s not even enter the talent aspect of things 🙂
      ps: still have not listened to Lemonade, not interested in Beyonce. But facts are facts. The delusion is strong.

      • Rihboy June 8, 2016

        Tour tour tour. That all you guys have ?. Yes we all know she is killing it. Both her and Rihanna are paid and are on tour. So that’s no longer ammunition. It’s null and void. This is about single success. Let’s. Stay on topic. Something you hive members can’t seem to do.

      • wrosy3 June 8, 2016

        You talking about bey earnings like it’s your’s so what is bey sharing any with you Beyonce got beat by adele Taylor and a singing rapper compare her to those artist what do you come up with and the fact remain all three had number ones on the charts Beyonce chart and fell the f*** off in the bubbling under I’m sorry b**** the fact remain is that yall bringing up rih numbers when your queen cannot get a number one to save her life kyle Jenner lip kit sold out before ivy park twirl the f*** on that bey do not win at everything Madonna also is the queen of touring

      • wrosy3 June 8, 2016

      • Coolness June 8, 2016

        Love my Bey but damn, take it easy on Rih’s neck.

      • JOHNVIDAL June 8, 2016

        You guys? LMAO I´m not a Beyonce fan as most people know here. It just happens to be a fact that Beyonce murders Rihanna. She just sold in a week what Rihanna sold in months for crying out loud!!! LMAO What the hell is more important than albums sales and tour success then? Having 7 attempts every year at a laughable hit single and only one sticking? Please! Facts are so telling. The difference is HUGE.
        Let´s not even debate about talent… 🙂

      • Kylizzle187 June 8, 2016


        Lmao stay on topic boo


      • JOHNVIDAL June 8, 2016

        Work on your comprehension skills mate. Nobody mentioned Adele here. Of course she beats everybody. Who said she doesn´t? Who talked about EARNINGS??? LMAO Fact remains Rihanna is talentless and her success is very very bland right now. She just flopped hard and Beyonce has been way more successful. What´s the thing you cannot understand?

      • Ciara’s Toes, and Russell’s OmMiBod stimulator June 8, 2016

        I like Rihanna, but John is readdddding. My goodness.

      • JOHNVIDAL June 8, 2016

        Sometimes it is needed to put things in their place. Stanning for mediocrity and acceting low standars is what makes most people be ignorant about so many important things in general. Not that pop music or Rihanna are one of those things. But still, it´s a pattern. I have to convince myself these people know deep inside that they say is not true. If not… 🙁

      • wrosy3 June 8, 2016

        Beyonce sold more albums you said in a week more than rih i thought rumors had Whitney snort a million in crack that’s the woman you Stan for

  10. #JACKIE June 8, 2016

    Kii JohnVidals ugly ass is seething once again.

    • JOHNVIDAL June 8, 2016

      You stan for Rhanna and Ciara. You´re a joke. Why do you keep mentioning me? Some people like talent and use obvious truths as arguments. That´s all.

      • #JACKIE June 8, 2016

        Crying!! You’re so pressed that you actually believe I Stan for Rihanna. I will continue to mention your sour apple bitter ass as long as you leave seething essays on every artist who’s under 45’s posts. B****.

      • wrosy3 June 8, 2016

        Dry p**** wig wearing b**** I will never work on my comprehension skills because maggots like you will read my clapbacks you did understand what the f*** I’m saying right b**** keep coming for rih with your long ass essays

    • B_Roni June 8, 2016

      LOL Yeah… what a tremendous vocalist, right?? 🙂

      • myloyaltybelongstoriri June 8, 2016

        Rihanna Robyn Fenty is far better than whosoever you Stan for.

      • JOHNVIDAL June 8, 2016

        I know you said that in sarcasm mode so I won´t go there 🙂

      • wrosy3 June 8, 2016

        Your favorite said crack is whack

  12. myloyaltybelongstoriri June 8, 2016

    Rihanna Robyn Fenty is far better than whosoever you Stan for.

  13. Kayla C June 8, 2016

    How on earth do people find the time to write novels on here? No one gives a damn lol. Good job Rih

    • HALF AMAZIN June 8, 2016

      B*** hurt people like JohnVIDAL who can’t seem to comprehend that music/artists serve a different purpose to different people at different times
      When I want vocals I go to a vocalist. When I want to turn up I go there, etc. ENDLESSLY comparing people who aren’t in the same lane is stupid. And really, who gives AF? You listen and you like it and if you don’t you don’t.

      • JOHNVIDAL June 8, 2016

        Tell that to the Rihanna fans who insist on comparing her to Beyonce or Gaga as if she were better. Not my fault. I had to speak truths. I just responded, didn´t start. I know damn well different artists serve different purposes. Rihanna doesn´t offer anything on her own though 🙂

      • HALF AMAZIN June 8, 2016

        Perhaps Rihanna offers nothing to YOU. Thats fine. Many people disagree. Feel free to continue to exercise your right not to be a fan. Yiu should sto those tragic essays though.

  14. IStan4Rihanna. June 8, 2016



    That once insane commenter writing essays!


    Lord help us.

  15. Cinnamon Girl June 8, 2016

    It’s interesting how badly Beyawnce is flopping this era. All that promotion and fake drama and she still can’t get a number 1 single, her HBI special couldn’t even get 1 million viewers even though it was free, her album didn’t even go gold in pure sales the first week and I don’t hear anyone talking about that Ivy Flop clothing line. Beyawnce’s star is fading no matter how much her delusional fans try to deny it

    • HALF AMAZIN June 8, 2016

      I wouldn’t say Beyonce is flopping. Her singles just don’t stand out individually, hence the need to make movies and videos for every song, shrouded in this cloak of “mystery”. Her albums have to be this type of occasion because if released traditionally I don’t think the interest would be the same. Needless to say, it’s what works for HER brand and that’s why she’s paid.

  16. nico June 8, 2016

    Fading where I live in Europe all stadiums are in full way or sold out jeep your opinion to yourself if she doesn’t want to promoteur singles that beyonce better worry about rihanna lol I live in France there are so many places many fans dont care about her she is succefull in Us guys let’s be clear thé only song who is charting is calvin harris featuring bye …..

    • Cinnamon Girl June 8, 2016

      It’s funny how all you can guys can talk about is Beyawnce’s tour. What about her flop HBO special, her flop album, her flop clothing line and the fact that she has not had a number 1 single in years?

  17. nico June 8, 2016

    Fading where ? I live in Europe all stadiums are in full way or sold out jeep your opinion to yourself if she doesn’t want to promote singles that beyonce problem’s better worry about rihanna lol I live in France there are so many places many fans dont care about her anymore lol she is succefull in Us guys let’s be clear the only song who is charting is calvin harris featuring bye ….. by the way many more albums go to beyonce pockets dont try to be shady with your local star lol

  18. SailorMoon June 8, 2016

    I cannot believe how angry johnvidal is. I love Rihanna! Beyonce outperformed her not surprised. What’s your issue tho? I’m not allowed to prefer Rihanna’s music/look/persona/and everything about her over Beyoncé because she’s more successful? Your a lunatic! Seek help!

    • Kev Kev June 8, 2016


    • JOHNVIDAL June 8, 2016

      No. Me leaving these comments is a REACTION to retarded comment which were posted first. Another one with comprehension problems… I´m responding to people saying Rihanna is more successful, which she isn´t as you just said. Where is your problem? Learn to read. Rihanna is also talentless. Not my fault.

    Not surprised at how big Needed Me is on streaming, all the thots/hoodrats I know love that song and it’s literally a bunch of Instagram captions pulled together.
    “Yhu Was Just Anotha N**** On Tha Hit List”/”Didn’t I Tell Yhu That I Was A Savage *100 emoji* *heart eyes emoji* *gun emoji*”

    Also Don’t Mind will probably be #1 after One Dance. It jumps like 10+ spots every week.

  22. Molly June 8, 2016

    Johnvidal talking bout its never heard work on the radio kiii not when radio hasn’t used gaga since 09 you so mad.

    • JOHNVIDAL June 8, 2016

      It´s not the point we are discussing though. If you want to be smart use real arguments. Gaga is not on demand right now on radio or pop scene. Nobody is saying she is. But she has a career beyond that. Rihanna doesn´t. That´s the main difference, and why her fans talking s*** about the likes of Beyonce and her sales is laughable, when beyonce just destroyed her once again success wise. If Beyonce and Gaga never wanted to evolve they could have done like Rihanna and keep on releasing easy stuff. But not everybody is as basic as Rihanna and Milye Cyrus. Rihanna has been really struggling anyway. Her last album has flopped way harder than any Gaga album.

      • HALF AMAZIN June 8, 2016

        Gaga evolved? Into what? A complete has been in 5 yrs flat? Who is checking for gags anymore? Her fans have either slit their wrists or moved on. Talk about floppage. I bumped Paparazzi the other day though. It was downhill after that album!

  23. Numbers don’t lie June 8, 2016

    Hold on to your edges calvin harris just tweeted the video is coming soon

    • HALF AMAZIN June 8, 2016

      I’m not excited. I haven’t liked any of Rih’s videos this time except bbhmm and the song didn’t even make the album. Perhaps the video will be different since it’s his song actually and not hers.

  24. Reddish tran ivy blokz Need UK timelyyou June 8, 2016

    Rihanna song isn’t new and it from last year however pink song is pretty good and Drake beat out of all of them he is number one song

  25. randy June 9, 2016

    Why is it that rihanna as never received a nomination for song or record of the year and most of her nomination are features for rap?

  26. randy June 9, 2016

    When she as so many hits

  27. randy June 9, 2016

    And the Eminem love the way you lies doesn’t count because that wasn’t her song
