RIHANNA TOPS THE SPOTify
This week Rihanna ended up with Justin Bieber’s supremacy in Spotify after reaching 31.4 million monthly listeners.
Continuing with its popularity, their song ‘Work’ remains the first place of The Top 50 Global Spotify
Rihanna could “Work” her way to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 by Monday (which would make for a nice present, just after her birthday Saturday).
Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself” has led the list for two nonconsecutive weeks, interrupted a week ago by Zayn’s No. 1-debuting “Pillowtalk,” while Rihanna’s “Work,” featuring Drake, rises 7-4 this week (on the chart dated Feb. 27).
However, based on projected sales, according to sources, and streaming and airplay data, collected by Nielsen Music so far in the tracking period, for next week’s Hot 100 (dated March 5), “Work” and “Love Yourself” are essentially tied in projected downloads sold, with approximately 100,000 each, according to sources’ forecasts, with “Work” looking slightly ahead of “Love Yourself.” “Work” is noticeably ahead in streams, but “Love Yourself” is leading significantly in radio airplay. The preliminary figures suggest a tight race for the Hot 100’s summit (with the chart encompassing those three data metrics).
