Rihanna isn’t letting go of her strong grip at No. 1 just yet. Her Drake collaboration, “Work,” spends a seventh straight week on top of the Billboard Hot 100. “Work” now joins “Umbrella” and “Love The Way You Lie” as her second longest chart-topper of her career. The longest is her Calvin Klein-produced monster hit, “We Found Love.”

Including this week, RiRi has now spent 58 weeks at No. 1 which is just one week shy from The Beatles who currently sit second with 59 weeks. Mariah Carey leads the pack with 79 weeks at the summit.

Meanwhile, Fifth Harmony achieves a career milestone with their latest single “Work From Home.” It becomes their very first Top 10 hit. The last girl group to crack the Top 10 was The Pussycat Dolls who did so with “When I Grow Up” back in 2008. Check out this week’s Top 10 below.

There are manly voices and then there’s Chris Hemsworth. The 32-year-old Aussie has one of the most melodic husky tones in Hollywood. Dude can read anything to me and make it sound like music. Ergo this post.

The Thor actor takes the nonsensical ramblings of Rihanna on “Work” and makes them sound almost Shakespearean. Now, that’s a talent.

“I lost myself there in the moment…It brought up a lot of feelings and emotions and past experiences,” Hemsworth jokingly stated afterwards. “Makes you just want to get to work. Get a job!

Rihanna Debuts Steamy ‘Kiss It Better’ Music Video

Apparently, today is the day of the battling writhing pop divas. On the heels of Ariana Grande releasing her steamy visual for “Dangerous Woman,” comes Rihanna to show off her humping skills. RiRi definitely ups the ante.

The “Kiss It Better” music video is one steamy affair. The 28-year-old Barbadian singer oozes sensuality with every head tilt, caress and booty tooch. While it’s all about sex, it’s far from ratchet. Rather, the black-and-white clip is an artsy affair. Very beautifully shot. Check it out below.

Work, work, work, work, work, work!!! That’s exactly what Rihanna‘s latest single is doing. “Work” continues to dominate the Billboard Hot 100 for a fifth straight week. Expect her run on top to last a bit longer. It doesn’t appear to be slowing down in the near future.

Meanwhile, Ariana Grande notches her seventh Top 10 hit with “Dangerous Woman.” She becomes the first artist in the chart’s 57-year-history to debut in the top 10 with the lead single from each of her first three albums. Not too shabby.

Elsewhere on the chart, “7 Years,” by Lukas Graham pushes to No. 3. The single by the Danish pop band was a worldwide hit late last year and has finally done the same in North America. Check out this week’s Top 10 below.

Work, work, work, work, work, work!!! Admit it, whenever you hear the word ‘work’ that melody automatically jumps into your head. It’s so God dang catchy.

Rihanna’s 14th chart-topper continues to do damage on the Billboard Hot 100. It spends a fourth week in pole position, fending off Justin Bieber whose “Love Yourself,” once again, sits in the runner-up slot.

Don’t feel too badly for the Biebs, his other Top 10 hit “Sorry” is about to match a Billboard record. If it remains in the top tier on next week’s chart, it’ll match his own, “What Do You Mean?” (2015-16), Maroon 5’s “Sugar” (2015) and Nicki Minaj’s “Starships” (2012) for the most consecutive weeks logged in the Hot 100’s top 10 from their debuts: 21 each. So far, “Sorry” has spent all 20 of its weeks in the Top 10.

Watch Billboard’s quick wrap-up video of this week’s Top 10 below.

Ariana Grande joined the likes of Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake and Lady Gaga as both host and musical guest on Saturday Night Live. The 22-year-old singer certainly stepped up to the challenge of doing double duty. She absolutely slayed all night long, especially when her vocals were utilized.

Grande previously displayed her prowess when it came to impersonating Celine Dion, Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears on The Tonight Show. On SNL, she expanded her repertoire to include Whitney Houston, Rihanna and Shakira. Ariana channeled her fellow divas perfectly during the Tidal skit.

Another personal favorite sketch featured Ariana as a sassy Maria Von Trapp from Sound of Music. If the nuns thought Julia Andrews was a problem, they’ll never figure out how to solve a problem like this Maria.

As musical guest, Grande debuted a new track “Be Alright,” along with performing “Dangerous Woman” for the first time. She was pitch perfect during both performances. I’m actually quite a fan of “Be Alright.” That’s a future smash for sure. The voguing choreo was a nice little throwback. Check out some of the highlights from last night below.

This easily could be a commercial for Staples… in the 90s. Seriously, were did Joe Jonas and company find all this vintage office equipment? A pink landline phone and a matching calculator. So retro 😉

DNCE gives Rihanna’s current chart-topper, “Work,” a makeover, taking it from a dancehall club jam to a sketch suitable for a late night talk show. Jimmy Fallon, someone’s encroaching on your territory. I’m not sure what compelled them to take this approach, but it’s an entertaining watch.

Speaking of covers… Have you heard about all the controversy of white artists covering “Work” and Beyonce’s “Formation?” Some are citing it’s culturally inappropriate due to the lyrics or visual images. Do you agree or is this whole PC sensitivity gone too far? Weigh in below.

2016 Brit Awards: Winners & Performances

2016-brit-awards

The 2016 Brit Awards could’ve easily been dubbed ‘The Adele Show.’ The 27-year-old superstar singer won in every category she was nominated in. Girl cleaned up by taking home four awards. The “Hello” diva also took the time to publicly support Kesha during one of her acceptance speeches. Is it sad to say that this whole #FreeKesha movement will actually turn the “Tik Tok” singer into a bigger star she was before?

James Bay, Coldplay, and One Direction were a few of the other homegrown winners while Bjork, Tame Impala and Justin Bieber received recognition in the international categories. The latter was joined by Bay during his “Love Yourself” performance.

Check out all the winners and performances below. One of the highlights was Lorde singing “Life On Mars” during the David Bowie tribute. If you got time to kill, you can watch the entire telecast in the embedded YouTube clip at the end of the post.
