Rihanna [Needed ME | Official Video]

The combination of its own growth in activity and the removal of some Beyonce and Prince congestion enables Rihanna’s “Needed Me” to crack the Top 15 on this week’s Billboard Hot 100.

“Needed Me” rises nine places to #13 on this week’s edition of the chart, which ranks songs based on the combination of sales, streaming, and radio activity.

“Needed Me” concurrently rises to #23 on Digital Songs (previous peak: #21) and holds at its #5 peak on Streaming Songs. It is not on this week’s 50-song Radio Songs chart, but it is gaining on that front.

Rihanna has four other songs on this week’s chart: “Work (featuring Drake)” at #6, “This Is What You Came For” (Calvin Harris featuring Rihanna)” at #9, “Too Good” (Drake featuring Rihanna)” at #52 and “Kiss It Better” at #76.
