Rihanna's 'Work' Goes to Number One on Billboard Hot 100!

Rihanna's 'Work' Goes to Number One on Billboard Hot 100!

Rihanna‘s hot new song “Work” featuring Drake has made its way to number one on the Billboard Hot 100!

This gives the 28-year-old singer her 14th number one on the chart and breaks her tie with Michael Jackson for the third-most number ones. Only The Beatles and Mariah Carey have more number ones with 20 and 18, respectively.

Drake gets his second number one single and it’s also his second as a featured artist on a Rihanna song. The other one is “What’s My Name?”

Make sure to watch the just released “Work” music video if you haven’t seen it yet!

Another highlight on the chart this week is DNCE‘s “Cake By the Ocean” moving up to number 10 and giving the band its first top 10 single.

This is a feat for Joe Jonas, who now has top 10 hits as a solo artist and with two bands. He previously charted at number nine with Camp Rock‘s “This Is Me” and had two top 10 hits with the Jonas Brothers.

    The fact that Rihanna has more #1 singles than MJ is a testament to the deteriorating state of music. Unlike MJ, her music will not outlive her. She hasn’t produced any classic songs, or anything that exists on the same level as MJ’s music.

    As long as they keep on writting songs only about sex I’ll be stuck to my 20th century songs

    For those who want to live with their head in the Clouds# fact: Even 20th Century Music had songs about sex. If you even go father back in time there were also songs about sex. These times are just more open and more free to do do .

    I don’t deny there were songs about sex but nowadays it’s just exaggerated the number of explicit songs there are no need to hear, thanks

  • VapidRapidRabbit

    Hate all you want, but Umbrella alone is a classic and is the reason so many of these other artists are using repetition in their songs today (look at most of Taylor Swift’s songs on 1989). Just because you are a pressed ass hater doesn’t mean her music will not stand the test of time.

  • Legendary Trolly

    That makes no sense. You meant to say its a testament to her talent to outdo a legend! And according to those facts, she may be up their with MJ!

    Rihanna You keep right on keeping on, and let the Haters weep all they want. Your Music is Beautiful, and you are a hit maker, and Haters don’t like it one little bit, Therefore they will continue to find fault with you, and your music, like they always do.

    If you cover a Magazine they fell like bugs bunny should have covered it, and he would look better. If you reach a new Milestone they feel like it was paid for by your team. If you feel the 02 Arena Ten Times they feel like they wrote up a pack of *ies. If you win a Fashion Icon Award they feel like, You bought and paid for it. You was the First Black Entertainer to be the face of Dior , and the Haters feel like Ciara would have been a better choice. If you get Awarded the First ever AMA Music Icon Award they feel like they should have given it to Teyanna Taylor. And if you get blessed enough to cover 19 Glossy Magazines in a Year they feel Beyonce would have been a better choice. With You RIHANNA It’s d** if you do and dang if you don’t
    Therefore You just have to keep doing You,Keep taking one step at a time in the right Direction, and you will be just fine,,, and let the Naysayers keep doing what they do best, And that’s Keep Hating on your Efforts.

    So many are bitter , and pressed because you have flipped the strip on wasting your time on your Social pages, and Maturing into such a
    “Boss Lady” growing up with a stronger Out look and surrounding yourself with Positive Vibes instead of Negative Vibes. And it’s refreshing how you are not paying a lot of Attention the the Haters.

  • Faithz

    Haters will make you lose a lot of time on their Mess if you let them, but when you ignore them and keep it full steam ahead , all that does is make them look like stark dang idiots. Keep up the good work girl.

  • Faithz

    They say your album is bad and you can’t sale Albums yet you have sold over ten Million in the US along, and one will be hard pressed to find another Artist who had sold over ten million in the Us who are about your age. We know you have sold more Albums in the Us then Teyanna Taylor, Chris Brown, Ciara, Tierra, and Solange Knowles so who are they comparing you to when they say you are Just a SINGLES Artist , DUUH.

    Rihanna has 14 number ones in the US….REALLY? Because TWO of her songs are by OTHER artists TI (Live Your Life and Eminem Monster) she sings CHORUS on both and gets credit for number one.

    MJ has had 13 number ones in the US….BUT hold on ! He has had 4 Number ones also with the Jackson 5 where he SANG THE ENTIRE SONGS and 1 with USA FOR AFRICA which he CO-WROTE and SANG on the chorus.

    By that ESTIMATION Michael Jackson’s TALLY is IN FACT 18 Number 1 US singles.. BILLBOARD are fukin bending the rules for some artists…What a JOKE !!

    Anyway…. today, in the digital, download and stream era …. ANY average singer can have No.1 spot, like that guy from (ex-)One Direction, Zayen Malik (how this could happen is beyond me)

    The price of the digital download is sooooo low that any stupid song can be No.1.

    In the 70s, 80s and even in the 90s, all the people had to buy the physical copies of singles or albums (LP, Cassette, or CD)

    Today, you can buy one album for 0.99 cent.

    WTF?

    And… the new rules of Billboard allow to co.cout the streaming into sales….

    Its insane.

    I couldn’t name more than one of her “songs” if my life depended on it.

    And only because that “song” includes the word “umbrella” in it like a thousand times. Must consider the quality of the work before it becomes a hit.

    That’s easy to do now that artist are dropping new singles every week.

    Only in the internet you read this but i don’t really hear her music on the radio which is good!!

    Rihanna is a product not a real artist.

    She should have a million songs bc she puts out a new album every second. Her record company is all about money, the focus is quantity not quality which is exactly why she has #$%$ songs.

    She needs to take more control over her career. They are trying to push this headline bc her album didn’t sell as good as usual , they need something positive to say.

    Work sounds just like everything else she pushed out in the past. Her albums are all the same.
