Rihanna Stays On Top of Billboard Hot 100

November 28, 2012 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Rihanna has topped both Billboard Charts this week. As previously reported, the Barbadian pop star hit #1 for the first time on the album chart with Unapologetic; she has also held onto the top spot of the Hot 100 singles chart as Billboard reports that “Diamonds” spends a second week at #1. That makes her the second artist of 2012 to top both charts at the same time, following Adele with 21 and “Set Fire to the Rain” in February.

Elsewhere on the chart, Ke$ha was up a place to #2 with her latest single “Die Young” off her forthcoming album Warrior. Maroon 5 fell one spot to #3 with “One More Night” while Bruno Mars’ “Locked Out of Heaven” stayed even at #4. PSY rose back up two places as “Gangnam Style” refused to fade away, up to #5.

In the lower half of the top 10, fun. was down a spot to #6 with “Some Nights,” with the Lumineers’ “Ho Hey” up a spot to #7. Phillip Phillips was back in the top 10 with “Home,” up four places to #8 for its highest placement yet. Flo Rida’s “I Cry” was up a spot to #9 and Ne-Yo’s “Let Me Love You (Until You Learn To Love Yourself)” fell four places to #10.
