Rihanna’s “Diamonds” shine bright Atop “Hot 100”

As “Diamonds” dominates the “Hot 100 “for a third week, it takes over “Radio Songs”. As Rihanna registers a third week at number 1 on the “Billboard Hot 100” with “Diamonds”, the song also rises to the top of the “Radio Songs” chart.
 
“Diamonds” remains atop the “Hot 100” powered by its 2-1 ascent on “Radio Songs”, where it gains by 7% to 134 million all-format audience impressions, according to “Nielsen BDS”. Her 12th “Hot 100” number 1 becomes her 10th leader on the BDS-based “Radio Songs” ranking (which launched 22 years ago this week). Rihanna is just the second artist to reach a double-digit number 1 total on the list: Mariah Carey remains one ahead of her with 11. (Usher places third with seven “Radio Songs” number 1s, followed by Ludacris and Kanye West, each with six.)
 
“Diamonds” notches a fourth week atop the “On-Demand Songs” chart with 1.06 million on-demand streams (down 2%) (and 1.19 million overall streams), according to “BDS”, and slides 2-8 on “Digital Songs” with 122,000 downloads sold, according to “Nielsen SoundScan”. (Parent album “Unapologetic” similarly declines on the “Billboard 200” in its second week (1-6); as previously reported, song and album sales were down in the tracking week after the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, as they are annually in that period.)
 
“Diamonds,” which rules “R&B/Hip-Hop Songs” for a ninth week, wins a tight race to number 1 on the “Hot 100”, fending off Bruno Mars’ “Locked Out of Heaven” (4-2) by approximately 2,500 chart points. “Diamonds” dips by 9% in overall points, while “Heaven” gains by 2%.
