As Rihanna registers a third week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Diamonds,” the song also rises to the top of the Radio Songs chart.
Will.i.am and Britney Spears, meanwhile, debut just outside the Hot 100’s top 10 with “Scream & Shout.”
“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 No. 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 No. 1 total on the list: Mariah Carey remains one ahead of her with 11. ( Usher places third with seven Radio Songs No. 1s, followed byLudacris and Kanye West, each with six.) READ MORE RELATED:: Rihanna Inks Brown-Inspired ‘Breezy’ Tattoo
