Rihanna’s “Work” Is No. 1 For Sixth WeekMarch 28, 2016
Rihanna extends her reign on the Hot 100.
Rihanna’s lead ANTi single tops the Billboard Hot 100 for a sixth week.
Rihanna’s “Work” is still going strong, topping the chart for a sixth time since its debut with 85,000 downloads and 31.6 million U.S. streams. It is only the the second song to tally five weeks of at least 30 million domestic streams, the first being Adele’s “Hello,” which achieved the feat for five weeks in November and December.

“Work” also tops the subscription services-based On-Demand Songs chart (14.4 million, down 6 percent) for a seventh frame. It holds at its No. 3 high on Radio Songs (122 million in airplay audience, up 2 percent) and No. 4 on Digital Songs (85,000 downloads sold, down 12 percent), which it led for two weeks. The track rules Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart for an eighth (nonconsecutive) week.
“Work” is Rihanna’s 14th Hot 100 leader, upping her into a solo share of the third-most No. 1s all-time, passing Michael Jackson (13). The Beatles lead with 20 No. 1s, followed by Mariah Carey (18). “Work” is also the record-breaking ninth Hot 100 No. 1 in a row by non-U.S.-born acts (with Rihanna from Barbados and Drake from Canada), while this week marks the record-extending 38th straight week that non-American talent has led the Hot 100.
The states can’t get enough of work work work work work.
