Rihanna's 'Diamonds' Tops Hot 100, Lumineers Leap To Top 10

The superstar scores her 12th Hot 100 No. 1, while the Lumineers' folk-rock 'Ho Hey' completes a lengthy journey to the top 10.

As previously reported, Rihanna's "Diamonds" rises 2-1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song replaces Maroon 5's "One More Night" (1-2) atop the list after a nine-week reign.

With her 12th Hot 100 topper, Rihanna ascends higher into rarefied historical chart air, as she ties Madonna and the Supremes for the fourth-most leaders in the ranking's 54-year history. Only the Beatles (20), Mariah Carey (18) and Michael Jackson (13) have sent more titles to the top.

"Diamonds" darts to the penthouse courtesy of gains on all three of the Hot 100's component charts. It becomes Rihanna's record-extending 12th No. 1 on Hot Digital Songs, where it climbs 3-1 with a 19% increase to 171,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan (and passes 1 million downloads sold to date). The song logs a second week atop On-Demand Songs (1.05 million on-demand streams, according to Nielsen BDS), good for top Streaming Gainer honors on the Hot 100, and pushes 4-2 on Hot 100 Airplay with 115 million all-format audience impressions (up 17%), according to BDS.

"Diamonds" (atop Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs for a seventh week) wins a fairly close race to No. 1 on the Hot 100, toppling "Night" by approximately 2,000 chart points. "Diamonds" gains by a robust 17% in overall points, while "Night" deflates by less than 1%.
