Rihanna Rules Hot 100 With ‘Rude Boy’ Track 

PhotobucketRihanna replaces labelmate Taio Cruz atop the Billboard Hot 100, set to be released tomorrow (Thursday, March 18), as her latest single “Rude Boy” jumps 4-1.

“Rude” is Rihanna’s sixth Hot 100 No. 1 and fifth as a lead artist. Her most recent chart-topper had been as a featured vocalist on T.I.’s “Live Your Life” in 2008. Her other leaders are “SOS” (2006, three weeks), “Umbrella,” featuring Jay-Z (2007, seven weeks), “Take A Bow” (2008, 1 week) and “Disturbia” (2008, two weeks)

Since debuting on the scene in June 2005 with the No. 2-peaking “Pon De Replay,” Rihanna has posted more Hot 100 No. 1 than any other artist. Next in line is Justin Timberlake who’s scored five chart-toppers during this span.

With “Rude Boy” knocking Cruz’s “Break Your Heart” (1-3) out of the top slot, the Island Def Jam Music Group (IDJMG) label posts back-to-back Hot 100 No. 1s for the first time since “Gold Digger” by Kanye West featuring Jamie Foxx replaced Mariah Carey’s “We Belong Together” at the head of the chart dated Sept. 17, 2005. “Heart” continues to top the Digital Songs chart, moving 202,000 downloads, according to Nielsen SoundScan (down 26%).
