Rihanna’s ‘Diamonds’ Debuts at No. 16 on Hot 100

Rihanna

Rihanna’s “Diamonds” is already dazzling on the charts. The latest single from the pop star debuts at No. 16 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week.

The song, helmed by Stargate, Benny Blanco, and Sia, is the first single from her upcoming seventh album, due later this year.

Rihanna has historically debuted strong on the singles charts. Her 2011 single “We Found Love” featuring Calvin Harris entered at the same spot in October of last year, while her collaborations with Eminem (“Love the Way You Lie”) and Drake (“Take Care”) debuted at 2 and 9, respectively. “Diamonds” also opens at No. 7 on the Digital Songs chart with 133,000 downloads.

If the song reaches No. 1, it would become the 12th chart-topper of her career. She currently holds the record for the youngest solo artist to achieve the feat.

Rihanna will perform her latest hit at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, airing December 4 at 10 p.m. on CBS.

    @boom boom, if you are calling them has beens, why are you telling them to take notes? They have already done it if they’re “HAS BEENS”. If anything, Rihanna took notes from them. #Dumbass.

    @Julian, Please. If you have no idea about how the charts work then just shut the fuck up. She released it in the middle of the week, when the sales for the next week already began. The single had no time to spread and it usually happens a week after. So watch out for the next 1-3 weeks. #Rihannanavy BITCH!
