Rihanna's track "Work" featuring Drake jumps to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The victory marks a historical moment for Rihanna becoming her 14th No. 1 and officially breaking her tie with legend Michael Jackson for the same amount of No. 1 songs. As it stands, only Mariah Carey and The Beatles currently have more No. 1's than Rihanna in all Hot 100 history. "Work" also makes a huge leaps with a 73 percent increase in streams, totaling 25.8 millions streams, according to Nielsen Music. Of course, this is most likely due to the single and Rihanna's album ANTI being available on a wider streaming services than just Tidal including Apple Music and Spotify.

Rihanna's video for "Work" arrived earlier today, but it seems Ri didn't need the accompanying visual to push the song No. 1. It's definitely a possibility that the video will help Rihanna hold the top title going into next week. The song also marks the second No. 1 for "Work" collaborator Drake, but only as a featured artist. "Hotline Bling" never reached the coveted No. 1 spot, despite his best efforts. Two No. 1's with Rihanna is still a pretty great win for the rapper.

There was a small difference between the top two spots this week. Justin Bieber earns the No. 2 spot with "Love Yourself." In fact, Bieber actually has two songs in the top ten this week with Purpose track "Sorry" sitting at the No. 4 spot. Twenty One Pilots' "Stressed Out" falls to the No. 3 spot on the chart. Flo Rida's "My House" rounds out the top five. Elsewhere on the chart, Joe Jonas' indie outfit DNCE made it's top 10 debut earning the No. 10 spot with their lead single "Cake by the Ocean."
