In rising to #7 this week, “Work (featuring Drake)” is by far the highest charting “ANTI” single on this week’s Billboard Hot 100.

It is not the only single from Rihanna’s new album on the listing, which ranks songs based on combined activity from sales, streaming, and airplay.

Her “Needed Me” also makes an appearance on this week’s all-encompassing chart. The song debuts at #91.

“Needed Me” trailed “Work” as the week’s second-best-selling “ANTI” track. Nielsen Music says it shifted 28,781 copies during the official tracking week.
