Blog News, Hot Albums, Musician / Bands 21 Feb 16 0

here are a string of changes to the R&B/Hip Hop single sales chart this week, with Rihanna reclaiming the top spot for her single, “Work.” Elsewhere, two of Future’s tracks off EVOL, “Low Life” and “Fly Shit Only,” debuted at #3 and #6 respectively and lastly, Alessia Cara (“Here”) and The Weeknd (“In The Night”) both fall out of the Top 10.

Rihanna’s “Work” Returns To #1

After slipping to #2 on last week’s report as a result of the huge splash that was Drake’s “Summer Sixteen,” Rihanna’s “Work” is back at #1 this week, despite having experienced a 27% decrease on the 155,725 copies sold the week prior. During the seven days leading to February 11, the lead single for the singer’s ANTI album sold 113,104 units, taking its total sales since its official release to 394,934 copies.

G-Eazy Stands Strong At #2

G-Eazy continues to pull in strong sales figures for his single, “Me, Myself & I.” During the seven days leading to February 11, the single moved 62,163 units, a similar number to that of the past three weeks.

Future’s “Low Life” Comes In At #3

Future’s “Low Life” debuts at #3 this week, selling 60,588 units during the seven days leading to February 11. The cut, which features The Weeknd and is produced by Metro Boomin and Ben Billions, serves as the only track off Future’s recently released album EVOL to feature a guest appearance.
