Needed Me becomes Rihanna’s longest-charting hitNovember 24, 2016
Needed Me marks a milestone among Rihanna’s 57 Hot 100 entries: it becomes her longest-charting, as it spends a 42nd week on the list (rebounding 34-32). It one-ups the 41-week chart run of her smash We Found Love, featuring Calvin Harris.
Here is a recap of Rihanna’s longest-lasting hits on the Hot 100:
42 weeks, Needed Me, No. 7 peak, 2016
41 weeks, We Found Love (feat. Calvin Harris), No. 1 (10 weeks), 2011
37 weeks, Disturbia, No. 1 (2 weeks), 2008
36 weeks, Work (feat. Drake), No. 1 (9 weeks), 2016
34 weeks, Take Care (Drake feat. Rihanna), No. 7, 2012
In September, Needed Me became noteworthy for its top 10 durability: By spending 16 weeks in the top 10, but peaking at No. 7, it logged the longest run in the top 10 for a song that missed the top five in the Hot 100’s history.
Rihanna’s current single from ANTI, Love On The Brain is charting at #50 on Billboard Hot 100. The song recently reached #1 in Poland. Don’t forget to support the song:
