Rihanna has officially revealed two new singles from her latest album “Anti” – “Needed Me” and “Kiss It Better”!
The music video for “Needed Me” was recently shot in Miami, while “Kiss It Better” has supposedly been done since December. We’re so excited!
Earlier this month Miguel performed Rihanna’s “Kiss It Better”, and today he released a preview of the studio version on Instagram.
We’re excited to hear more!
Rihanna’s Anti moves back to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, collecting its second week at the top. The diva’s set earned another 54,000 equivalent album units in the week ending March 17, according to Nielsen Music.
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new April 2-dated chart (where Anti is No. 1) will be posted in full to Billboard’s websites on Tuesday, March 22.
Anti is Rihanna’s second No. 1 album (following her previous studio effort, Unapologetic, in 2012) and her first to spend more than one week at No. 1.
Of Anti’s total units for the week, 17,000 were in pure album sales. The rest of its sum — a sizable 69 percent — was comprised of TEA and SEA units, thanks to the popularity of its tracks (like the smash single “Work,” which has spent four weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart).
Rihanna’s Drake-assisted “Work” has entered the Hot 100’s top five, rising 7-4 in its third week. The song is Rihanna’s 20th top five Hot 100 hit, making her just the eighth artist to hit that milestone.
Here is an updated look at the acts with the most top five Hot 100 hits:
29, The Beatles
26, Mariah Carey
24, Janet Jackson
21, Elvis Presley (whose career predated the Hot 100’s 1958 launch by two years)
20, Michael Jackson
20, Stevie Wonder
(Among artists with the most Hot 100 top 10s, Rihanna ranks in a tie for fifth place.)
Partly powering the ascent of “Work,” the song zooms 41-4 on Streaming Songs (15 million, up 222 percent) and 16-1 on the subscription services-based On-Demand Songs chart (13 million, up 209 percent, becoming her third No. 1 on the tally), with the track’s arrival on Spotify, which accounts for 47 percent of its overall streams, heavily pushing its rise.
“Work” also charges 20-13 on Radio Songs (63 million, up 23 percent), winning the Hot 100’s top Streaming and Airplay Gainer awards. On Digital Songs, the single rises 3-2 (113,000, down 27 percent).
“Work” also leads the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart for a second nonconsecutive week.
