Rihanna Navy! This award is for the fans they said. It’s not easy what we do, it’s very difficult at times, it’s a lot of pressure and a lot of things and I’ve never felt comfortable being anything other than myself and I just thank my fans for being supportive and embracing that. Embracing that freedom and that liberation and we’re family, we stick together. I love you guys. Anytime we feel like giving up, and this is for everybody here, all the other musicians here. There are times when it gets really difficult, but when we think about the fans and the people who support us, that’s what keeps going. So, Rihanna Navy, I love you! Congratulations! Thank you! Navy or die!

Categories: News

Rihanna Ties Mariah, Janet & Elton for Fifth-Most Hot 100 Top 10s

Categories: News

Rihanna’s “Work,” the lead single from her new album Anti, rockets onto the Billboard Hot 100 (dated Feb. 13) at No. 9, instantly becoming the superstar’s 27th top 10. With the song’s arrival, she ties Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson and Elton John for the fifth-most top 10s in the Hot 100’s history.

The only artists with more top 10s than that quartet since the Hot 100 originated with the chart dated Aug. 4, 1958? Madonna (38), the Beatles (34), Michael Jackson (29) and Stevie Wonder (28). (Notably, Elvis Presley boasts 25 Hot 100 top 10s, but his career predated the chart by two years; had the chart existed earlier, his top 10 count would be higher.)

Especially impressive, Rihanna has reached 27 Hot 100 top 10s faster than any other soloist. Dating from an artist’s first week on the Hot 100 to the frame in which it notched its 27th top 10, only one act has reached the sum more quickly: the Beatles tallied their 27th top 10 (1969’s “Get Back,” with Billy Preston) a mere five years, three months and three weeks after their 1964 Hot 100 debut with “I Want to Hold Your Hand” (their first Hot 100 charted title, top 10 and No. 1).

Runner-up Rihanna needed just 10 years and eight months between her first Hot 100 hit, and first top 10, 2005’s No. 2-peaking “Pon De Replay,” and “Work” (which features Drake). Madonna now ranks third with a still-speedy 11-year, two-month and two-week span between “Holiday,” her first Hot 100 entry (which reached No. 16 in 1984), and her 27th, “Take a Bow,” which became her longest-leading No. 1 (seven weeks) in 1995. (And, of course, both Madonna and Rihanna have crowned the Hot 100 with songs titled “Take a Bow.”) (Another fun fact: fittingly, given her new total of top 10s, Rihanna’s age? 27!)

“Work” becomes Rihanna’s 27th Top 10 hit in the US; “ANTI” debuts

Categories: News

Rihanna makes a splash on Billboard’s charts this week, as her new album Anti arrives on the Billboard 200 while its lead single “Work” debuts in the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 and at No. 1 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.

‘ANTI’S ARRIVAL: Despite being available for only a fraction of the chart tracking week, Anti starts at No. 27 on the Billboard 200 albums chart dated Feb. 13, bowing after only a little more than a day’s worth of activity in the marketplace, as the latest chart’s tracking week ended on Jan. 28.

Anti was released through Tidal’s streaming service on the evening of Jan. 27. (It was not released commercially until Jan. 28 through Tidal, and then through all digital retailers on Jan. 29. A physical CD release for the album is scheduled for Feb. 5.)

To make sure you don’t miss any Rihanna news, simply turn on @RihannaDaily’s Twitter notifications.

The Billboard 200 ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The chart’s tracking week runs Friday through Thursday each week.

Anti’s bow on the chart is largely driven by track sales and streaming activity of its lead single “Work” (it was released at 8 a.m. ET on Jan. 27) along with streams of the album’s tracks. In the week ending Jan. 28 in the U.S., “Work” sold 126,000 downloads and Anti album generated 4.7 million streams for its songs, according to Nielsen Music. A small number of sales for the Anti album were registered in the week ending Jan. 28, but not enough for the set to chart on any of Billboard’s pure album sales charts.

Anti’s streaming debut on Tidal was concurrent with its availability — in a limited quantity — as a free download, supported by Samsung. Anti generated 1.47 million downloads globally in less than 15 hours. Those gratis downloads do not count toward the charts or Nielsen Music’s sales figures.

Industry forecasters expect Anti to make a big leap up the Billboard 200 chart next week — possibly to No. 1 — after the album has a full week of activity behind it. Prognosticators suggest Anti could shift around 125,000 in equivalent album units in the week ending Feb. 4, which could power the album to No. 1 on the chart dated Feb. 20. If Anti hits the top, it will mark Rihanna’s second No. 1, following her previous studio album, 2012’s Unapologetic.

TOP 10 ON THE HOT 100: Rihanna roars in at No. 9 on the Hot 100 with Anti lead single “Work” (featuring Drake) — her 27th top 10 hit, and Drake’s 15th. She now ties Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson and Elton John for the fifth-most top 10s in the Hot 100’s history. (Madonna leads with 38.) “Work” is Rihanna’s milestone 50th Hot 100 hit.

“Work” debuts at No. 1 on Digital Songs (126,000 sold in its first week; the song sold that sum in just more than a day of the tracking week ending Jan. 28, as, again, it was commercially released at 9 a.m. ET on Jan. 27), marking Rihanna’s record-extending 14th No. 1 on the sales chart. “Work” also launches at No. 27 on Radio Songs (44 million in just more than four days of availability), marking her highest career debut on the airplay ranking, and drew 2.2 million streams (in just more than a day, as the Digital Songs and Streaming Songs tracking week runs Friday-Sunday; Radio Songs covers Monday-Sunday each week).

NO. 1 ON HOT R&B/HIP-HOP SONGS: Work” crashes in at No. 1 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, landing Rihanna her fifth chart-topper on the list and Drake his 14th.

Rihanna previously hit No. 1 with “FourFiveSeconds” (in 2015, with Kanye West and Paul McCartney), “The Monster” (2013; Eminem featuring Rihanna), “Diamonds” (2012) and “Take a Bow” (2008). “Work” is her second single to debut at No. 1, and her first as a lead act, following “The Monster.”

The No. 1 debut of “Work” is driven by its handsome sales and airplay start. It enters at No. 1 R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Songs and No. 15 on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay (her highest debut ever).

“Work” also logs Rihanna her 16th top 10 effort on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. She first visited the region with “Umbrella,” which peaked at No. 4 on July 14, 2007.
