Rihanna’s most recent #1 single — and the album on which it appears — both received new RIAA honors on April 29.

Her “Work” was certified all the way to triple platinum on that date. A triple platinum digital certification confirms a US unit total of at least 3 million, with one unit being equal to 1 paid download or 150 streams.

The new “Work” certifications widen Rihanna’s lead when it comes to digital US single awards; she now has 105 million in certified US digital single units.

Album “ANTI,” meanwhile, went double platinum. The certification indicates a unit total of at least 2 million.

Under the new albums program, one unit is equal to 1 album sale, 10 track sales, or 1500 track streams.

May 3 brought good news for Fifth Harmony’s “Work From Home (featuring Ty Dolla $ign) and Zara Larsson & MNEK’s “Never Forget You.”

The two singles, which are being promoted by Epic, earned platinum certifications in the United States.

Under the terms of the RIAA’s digital singles program, a platinum honor confirms a digital US unit total of at least 1 million. One unit is equal to 1 paid download or 150 streams.

“Work From Home” becomes the fourth Fifth Harmony single to reach platinum (or better) status in the US. It is Zara Larsson and MNEK’s first.

Editor’s Note: It appears Meghan Trainor’s “NO,” a fellow Epic track, may have also gone platinum on May 3. The RIAA’s website, presumably mistakenly, says it went gold a second time on that date; it had already been certified gold in March.

“Dangerous Woman” is very much expected to become Ariana Grande’s third straight #1 album when it arrives later this month, and it may do so with the best opening week tally of her career.

According to Hits Daily Double, US pre-order sales are nearing 40,000. Based on that volume — and expectations for how it will perform during its actual May 20-26 release week — Hits says sources are projecting an opening week sales total in the 200,000 range.

Assuming Blake Shelton’s “If I’m Honest” performs more like his last album “Bringing Back The Sunshine” (101,000) than his 2013 release “Based On A True Story…” (199,000), a 200,000 total would convincingly position Grande at #1 on the album sales chart.

It would also represent the best sales week of her career. Previous album “My Everything” sold 169,000 in its first week, while her studio debut “Yours Truly” sold 138,000.

Given the likelihood that “Dangerous Woman” will fare particularly well from a track sales and streaming standpoint, it should also have no trouble debuting atop the Billboard 200 consumption chart.

Columbia never moved forward with a full push for Little Mix’s “Secret Love Song (featuring Jason Derulo),” but it still hopes the girl group can command a renewed presence on US pop radio.

The label’s promotional team has issued Little Mix’s “Hair (featuring Sean Paul)” to pop programmers.

While Columbia has not yet announced an impact date, it did issue a promotional blast to radio professionals confirming the availability of the new single.

The Sean Paul version of “Hair” was recently launched as the fourth international single from the group’s “Get Weird.”

As far as the US goes, Little Mix last received meaningful airplay for lead “Get Weird” single “Black Magic.” The song peaked at #23 — a Little Mix best — on the Mediabase pop airplay chart.

The Chainsmokers’ “Don’t Let Me Down (featuring Daya)” is set to claim a top ten position on this week’s Mediabase pop radio airplay chart.

Ariana Grande’s “Dangerous Woman” also has a very good chance of entering that territory.

“Don’t Let Me Down” received 4,401 spins during the first three days of the May 1-7 tracking week. Up 17.2% from the count at this point last week, the tally slots “Don’t Let Me Down” at #9 on Mediabase’s building chart.

Absent an imminent threat from below, “DLMD” should have no trouble retaining its position through the close of the week. It may even leapfrog DNCE’s building #8 “Cake By The Ocean” and Justin Bieber’s building #7 “Love Yourself,” which are both declining, before the week concludes.

Grande’s song does not have the momentum of “Don’t Let Me Down” — its gains have, in fact, been slowing recently — but it still has a solid shot at the Top 10.

Spun 4,192 times during the tracking week’s first three days, “Dangerous Woman” is #11 on Mediabase’s building chart. This week’s count bests last week’s by 4.2%.

The song only narrowly trails Flo Rida’s “My House,” which received 4,250 spins during the three-day window. The difference is that “My House” is clearly fading; its spin count is down 10.3% from the mark at this point last week.

If the songs were to at least roughly remain on their current trajectories, “Dangerous Woman” would overtake “My House” before the week concludes.
