The pair’s new single, from Shakira’s forthcoming album, is off to a fast start at pop and Latin pop radio after its first day of release
Shakira’s new single, “Can’t Remember to Forget You,” featuring Rihanna, has received a warm welcome at radio following its release yesterday (Jan. 13).
After its first day of availability, the lead track from Shakira’s first RCA Records album, due March 25 (her first English-language set since 2009’s “She Wolf”), has vaulted into the top 20 of the Nielsen BDS-based Pop Songs and Latin Pop Songs building charts. Airplay has been boosted by hourly plays yesterday on participating Clear Channel Media + Entertainment-owned English-language pop stations. The song received 1,172 first-day plays on 143 U.S. stations, amounting to 11 million all-format audience impressions.
Eminem and Rihanna tally a fourth week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with “The Monster,” which fends off Pitbull and Ke$ha’s “Timber” at No. 2, also for a fourth week. With her continued reign, Rihanna moves into sole possession of the third-most total weeks at No. 1 (51) in the chart’s history.
Rihanna’s 13th No. 1 and Eminem’s fifth leader holds at the Hot 100’s summit, posting a fourth week atop the Radio Songs airplay chart. It slips by 7% to 136 million in all-format audience impressions, according to Nielsen BDS. On Digital Songs, which it led for three weeks, “Monster” rebounds 3-2 with 433,000 downloads sold (up 124%), according to Nielsen SoundScan; all titles on the 50-position Digital Songs chart gain this week, as consumers redeemed digital gift cards after Christmas.
