Last week, Rihanna’s “Work (featuring Drake)” rose three places to #4 on the Billboard Hot 100.

This week, it rises three places to #1 on the all-encompassing chart. It becomes Rihanna’s fourteenth career #1 hit. Only two artists — The Beatles (20) and Mariah Carey (18) — have more #1 hits.

The new peak position is attributable to strong weekly sales, streaming, and radio activity.

“Work” seizes the throne from Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself,” which slips to #2 after its second, non-consecutive week on top.

The Top 10 of this week’s Billboard Hot 100 follows:
10) DNCE – Cake By The Ocean
9) The Chainsmokers ft. ROZES – Roses
8) G-Eazy x Bebe Rexha – Me, Myself & I
7) Adele – Hello
5) Flo Rida – My House
4) Justin Bieber – Sorry
3) Twenty One Pilots – Stressed Out
2) Justin Bieber – Love Yourself
1) Rihanna – Work
