Rihanna & Drake’s “Work” Leads Rhythmic, Urban Airplay Charts For Sixth Straight Week

Rihanna’s “Work (featuring Drake)” has now spent more than half its chart tenure atop the Mediabase rhythmic and urban airplay listings.

This marks the song’s eleventh total week on both charts — and its sixth consecutive week at #1.

Despite suffering a loss in weekly spins, “Work” easily repeats as rhythmic’s top song. It received ~6,353 spins during the April 3-9 tracking week; Jeremih’s “oui,” which improves to #2 this week (+2), markedly trails with ~4,589 weekly plays (+231).

Up two places, Belly’s “Might Not (featuring The Weeknd)” takes #3 with ~4,553 tracking week plays (+355). Chris Brown’s “Back To Sleep” slips one spot to #4 with a weekly spin count of ~4,517 (+87), while G-Eazy x Bebe Rexha’s “Me, Myself & I” (#5, -3 | ~4,277, -425) completes rhythmic’s To 5.

— “Work” also suffered a weekly loss at the urban format. It also maintains a clear advantage on the airplay chart.

The song received ~5,041 weekly spins (-375), which bests the ~4,249 received by Jeremih’s runner-up “oui” (+111).

Up one place, Bryson Tiller’s “Exchange” reaches #3 courtesy its ~4,144 weekly plays (+354), while Luke Nasty’s “Might Be” slips a place to #4 with ~3,899 (+19).

Kevin Gates’ “2 Phones,” which was #7 last week, follows at #5. It garnered ~3,416 tracking week spins (+26).
