In the week ending on February 19, it was Adele that reigned supreme atop the Billboard 200, moving just over 150,000 more units of her November opus, 25, to re-claim the #1 spot for a ninth non-consecutive week after her performance at last week’s Grammy Awards, and Rihanna that notched her fourteenth #1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Work.” Rih Rih’s Drake-featured dance single impressively took the top spot before her double music video impacted, which will likely keep “Work” at or near the top of the charts in the coming weeks, considering the video’s viral popularity. A couple other non-debuts finished right behind Adele, with Justin Bieber and Rihanna locking in the second and third spots respectively, while The Weeknd‘s August 2015 Beauty Behind The Madness album continues to dominate, narrowly missing a Top 5 finish at #6, likely due to his solo performance at the Grammys, and duet with Lauryn Hill on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon just days later. Future hangs around at #10 with EVOL, which previously debuted at #1, and Taylor Swift‘s Album of the Year-winning 1989 album will likely hover in or around the Top 10 for the next few weeks; for now it’s at #8.
As far as the Hot 100 goes, “Work,” leads the pack but Justin Bieber is still putting up a strong fight with two Top 5 entries, as “Love Yourself” and “Sorry,” both former Hot 100 chart-toppers, finished at #2 and #4 respectively. Flo-Rida‘s got his biggest hit since 2012’s “Whistle” thanks to “My House” at #5, and despite dropping out of the #1 spot, ZAYN Malik‘s “Pillow Talk” is enjoying it’s second consecutive week in the Top 10, just above Adele’s relentless “Hello.” Check out the full Top 10 below.
Next week on the Hot 100, look for Yo Gotti‘s “Down on the DM” to continue its creep up to the Top 10 and Rihanna’s “Work” to possibly repeat as chart champ.
