Drake thanks his pal Riri for two number ones
"Work" crowns Streaming Songs, roaring 4-1 with a 73 percent increase to 25.8 million streams, according to Nielsen Music, after its recent wide release on streaming services, including official and user-generated content on YouTube; with the song's official video released today, any gains from the clip's arrival will be reflected on next week's Hot 100, to be released next Monday (Feb. 29). Rihanna earns her second Streaming Songs No. 1 (following her featured turn on Eminem's "The Monster," which led the Jan. 4, 2014 list), while Drake celebrates his first Streaming Songs leader.
"Work" concurrently holds at No. 2 on Digital Songs (119,000, up 5 percent), after debuting at No. 1 on the ranking three weeks ago, and lifts 13-10 on Radio Songs (76 million, up 21 percent). Rihanna posts her 24th top 10 on Radio Songs, passing Mariah Carey's 23 for the most top 10s dating to the chart's December 1990 inception. Drake tallies his 14th Radio Songs top 10. (The track wins dual top Streaming and Airplay Gainer honors on the Hot 100 for a second straight week.)
