RiRi, Katy, Jay Z on Billboard Chart War!

RiRi, Katy, Jay Z on Billboard Chart War!RiRi, Katy, Jay Z on Billboard Chart War!

"We Found Love" by Rihanna featuring Calvin Harris tops the Hot 100 for the seventh straight week. This ties "Umbrella" (featuring Jay-Z) and Eminem's "Love The Way You Lie," on which Rihanna was featured, as RiRi's longest-running #1 hit to date. Since 1955, only four other artists have had three or more songs remain at #1 for as many as seven weeks. Elvis Presley, fittingly, had more of these monster hits than any other artist (five). Mariah Carey is second with four. Rihanna is tied with Boyz II Men and Beyonce, with three each.
 
By holding at #1 for a seventh week, "We Found Love" also ties Adele's "Rolling In The Deep" as the longest-running #1 hit so far this year. 
 
Rihanna's "S&M," which reached #1 in April, tops the 3 million mark in digital sales this week. It's the 13th song to reach that sales plateau in 2011, which sets a new record. Twelve songs topped the 3 million mark in all of 2010. Seven songs hit that level in 2009. Just two did it in 2008.
