Chart Check [Billboard Hot 100]: Britney Spears & Rihanna See Post-VMA Gains

Published: Saturday 10th Sep 2016 by Rashad

Britney Spears’ 2016 MTV VMA performance may have been billed the night’s “must-see” performance leading up to the ceremony, but after the 1-2 punch of riveting Rihanna and Beyonce performances, the ‘Radar’ singer was hardly on anyone in the audience’s radar.

Yet, despite being greeted with mixed review and seeing the headlines that followed not exactly singing her praises, the refreshed Billboard Hot 100 is revealing her G-Eazy-assisted showing was not a complete miss.  Indeed, after introducing the tune – ‘Make Me’ (the lead single from her 9th album, ‘Glory’) – to its largest audience yet, Brit has jumped over 40 spots on this week’s single chart!

In addition to herself and Rih, see who else can thank the VMAs for a boost below:

    Once you get past the heavily edited vocals, Glory is a good album! I actually really enjoy it as it’s fun, clean and doesn’t take itself too seriously like every other album this year. No agenda. Just cute bops. She deserves chart ‘glory’ with this one

    Yo Broccoli is in the top 20! That’s my jam

      best song on anti love this song best r&b track to make top 10 and the first time since Beyonce released her life that I have liked more than 1 song in the top25 shame really when the last 2 decades I pretty much loved at least 15 songs 2013 to present has shown hown the quality is poor billboard no longer compares sales from the this year and last year anymore wonder why

    Closer is getting 10+ weeks at #1 for sure. It has no competition, it’s literally massive in every category. Love the way Halsey effortlessly got a #1 before others with 274020203 attempts at one (*cough* Onika *cough*). And yes she IS a big reason for the success, none of the Chainsmokers other hits were such an instant smash and 2 of their last 4 singles released before it flopped.
    Needed Me’s longevity is great. Death at Make Meth… failing to go top ten with a discount and all of that constant promo.

    Yass! At Needed Me’s slayage and longevity! I know advertisers and streaming services are paying Rihanna boatloads of cash since she is bring the most consumers to their services as the top streamed female artist of all time! But basics will try and discredit streaming because it isn’t benefiting there faves lol Tv works the same way whatever is bringing in the most viewers is being paid the most by the broadcast companies !

    Rihanna is the only artist this year to have 3 double platinum singles and 4 songs to cross over 300 million streams slay queen! Ahead of the curve once again and I love it! Top digital artist of all time and top female and second only behind drake as the most streamed artist of all time ! Love stanning for this queen!

      • America’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler September 10, 2016

      • Datredd23 September 10, 2016

        Girl bye call me when a true singles artist can make 75 million in a year aka flo rida and Jason Derulo or pitbull those are singles artists dear and you know it gtfo my reply section u know Rihanna is winning

    • Datredd23 September 10, 2016

      over 40 million albums sold and having the highest selling album by a black female artist this decade is not singles artist dear so move along with that stale redundant read because it no longer has anymore merit !
