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. (Total digital song sales rise by 98% from the previous week.) "Monster" falls to No. 2 after a week atop Streaming Songs (4.7 million U.S. streams, down 38%, according to BDS) and drops 1-2 after six weeks at No. 1 on the subscription services-based On-Demand Songs chart (1.6 million, down 25%).
As "Monster" marks four weeks atop the Hot 100, Rihanna collects her 51st career week at the summit, pushing her past Boyz II Men (50 weeks) for the third-most weeks spent at No. 1 in the chart's 55-year history. Mariah Carey leads with 79 total weeks at No. 1 (via 18 toppers), followed by the Beatles (59 frames from 20 No. 1s). Usher rounds out the top five with 47 weeks at No. 1, thanks to nine leaders.
"Monster" spends a ninth week at No. 1 on both the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Rap Songs charts. It leads the Rhythmic radio-based list for a fifth week and Pop Songs and Rap Airplay for a fourth week each.
