Rihanna’s ‘Needed Me’ Is Now the Longest-Running Hit of Her Career (So Far)
Didn't she warn you about that Rihanna reign a long time ago already?
RiRi might have rih-leased her ANTI moody banger "Needed Me" all the way back in March, but the song is still floating fairly high in the mid-30s of the Billboard Hot 100 as of this final week of November. As a result, the DJ Mustard co-produced smash is officially Rihanna's longest-running hit...ever.
"The song marks a milestone among Rihanna's 57 Hot 100 entries," Billboard reports. "It becomes her longest-charting, as it spends a 42nd week on the list (rebounding 34-32). It one-ups the 41-week chart run of her smash 'We Found Love,' featuring Calvin Harris." Her ANTI lead single, "Work (feat. Drake)," managed to last an impressive 36 weeks in its own right.
Rih herself acknowledged her latest feat in an Instagram post yesterday (Nov. 27), sending prayer hands up to the Navy along with a screencap of the Billboard write-up.
Congrats, Rih: you've had one helluva 2016.
