    “FourFiveSeconds” jumps to #4 on Billboard Hot 100

    Rihanna, Kanye West and Paul McCartney’s “FourFiveSeconds” ticks 6-4 on the Hot 100, fueled in part by the trio’s performance of the collab at the Grammy Awards. “FourFiveSeconds” stays at No. 3 on Digital Songs with a 44 percent vault to 261,000 sold, good for the Hot 100’s top Digital Gainer award. It bounds 22-13 on Radio Songs (58 million, up 25 percent) and 34-26 on Streaming Songs (4.6 million, up 20 percent).

    With the song’s Hot 100 lift, McCartney ranks in the top five for the first time in 31 years, one month and one week. His last top five hit? “Say Say Say,” with Michael Jackson, which reigned for seven weeks in December 1983/January 1984 (and became McCartney’s ninth solo No. 1, in addition to his record 20 with the Beatles). That’s a new record gap closed between top five hits: McCartney bests Santana, who waited 28 years, eight months and one week between the No. 4-peaking “Black Magic Woman” in 1971 and the 12-week No. 1 “Smooth” (featuring Rob Thomas) in 1999.

    “FourFiveSeconds” additionally spends a second week at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.

    Rihanna attended Fendi’s New York Flagship Boutique opening celebration this Friday (February 13). Click here for photos, check out 10 fan pictures after the jump and check back later for more.

    “Had so much fun designing for @Fendi’s 3Baguette charity project! Bid to support the Clara Lionel Foundation: http://3baguetteauction.fendi.com/ii/en/“, Rihanna tweeted.

    Fendi has teamed with Rihanna, Sarah Jessica Parker, Rachel Feinstein, Jourdan Dunn and Leandra Medine on a new charity project that marked the official inauguration of the brand’s newest flagship on Madison Avenue in New York. Fendi has asked the five women to personalize their own 3Baguette handbag — a style launched at the end of last year that reinterprets the Fendi accessory with a more structured shape and the FF logo becoming a lock rather than simply a decorative element. Parker, Rihanna and Feinstein have also designed micro-baguette models. The bags were unveiled at the cocktail party at the new store hosted by Karl Lagerfeld, Silvia Venturini Fendi and chairman and chief executive officer Pietro Beccari. More details here.

    FourFiveSeconds enters Billboard Hot 100’s TOP 10!

    Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk!,” featuring Bruno Mars, rules the Billboard Hot 100 for a sixth week, while Rihanna, Kanye West and Paul McCartney’s “FourFiveSeconds” surge into the top 10 — marking McCartney’s first top 10 after a record-setting 29-year gap.

    The week’s notable highlights in the top center on the region’s two new entrants, led by Rihanna, West and McCartney’s “FourFiveSeconds,” which vaults 15-6. Helping fuel the song’s surge: the premiere of its official video on Feb. 3 and the trio’s performance of it on the 57th Annual Grammy Awards Sunday (Feb. 8) (which likely swelled sales further just before the closing of the Nielsen tracking week that night; following a full week of sales, ending Feb. 15, the track should continue to gain in downloads).

    “FourFiveSeconds” jumps 4-3 on Digital Songs (181,000, up 31 percent) and 36-22 on Radio Songs (46 million, up 33 percent) and enters Streaming Songs at No. 34 (3.8 million, up 830 percent, good for top Streaming Gainer honors on the Hot 100).

    Rihanna’s Instagram Return Sparks No. 2 Re-Entry on Social 50

    Badgalriri – Rihanna’s handle on Instagram — has been absent from the Facebook-owned photo-sharing platform all summer since her account was deactivated in May. While no official explanation was offered, some say it was because of posts containing risqué images from her Lui magazine cover shoot.

    Either way, Badgalriri reappeared Nov. 2 on Instagram, spurring a No. 2 re-entry on the Billboard Social 50 after a five-month absence from the chart’s top 10. The surge back onto the chart also elevates her on the Billboard Artist 100, where she flies 100-44.

    Rihanna’s activity on Instagram is one of the primary drivers of her activity on the Social 50, where she’s spent 21 weeks in the No. 1 position since the chart’s launch in 2012. This explains why the account’s absence is responsible for such a dramatic drop in her standing on the chart.

    On the week of her re-entry, she came back with a bang, posting more than 20 photos before the charting week’s end (on Nov. 9) that garnered 14.5 million reactions. The news contributes to the 109,000 mentions of her on Twitter (up 6 percent) and a 10 percent increase in traffic to her Wikipedia page for the week.
