The song arrives following its innovative video premiere. Plus, moves for Selena Gomez, Lukas Graham, James Bay & Adele.

As previously reported, Rihanna's "Work," featuring Drake, reaches No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 (dated March 5), becoming her 14th leader, as well as Drake's second. It also makes for a record-setting nine No. 1s in a row by non-American acts. Plus, Joe Jonas-led DNCE dances 11-10 with "Cake by the Ocean," granting Jonas a new top 10 after reaching the region as both a Jonas Brothers member and a soloist.

Who else works their way up the Hot 100 this week?

Selena Gomez, "Hands to Myself"

After hitting a high of No. 7 on the Hot 100 three weeks ago, following the release of its official video, the song is poised to return to the top 10, lifting 12-11. It pushes 13-11 on the Digital Songs chart (57,000 downloads sold, up 11 percent, in the week ending Feb. 18, according to Nielsen Music) and 22-16 on Radio Songs (61 million in audience, up 18 percent).

Lukas Graham, "7 Years"

The debut hit from the Danish pop band, fronted by Lukas Graham Forchhammer, reaches the Hot 100's top 20 (35-20) in its fifth week. Sales lead the way, as the wistful single reaches the Digital Songs top 10 (15-9), up by 35 percent to 64,000 sold.

James Bay, "Let It Go"

Bay's first Hot 100 hit is now his first top 40 hit, too, as it blasts 75-38 with top Digital Gainer honors. It re-enters Digital Songs at a new high of No. 10 (61,000, up 290 percent) after his Grammy Awards spotlight Feb. 15 (with the show broadcast on CBS): Bay was nominated for best new artist (won by Meghan Trainor) and sang "Go" in a shared set with Tori Kelly, who performed "Hollow"; fellow best new artist nominee Kelly's track also surges, rising 93-68 (hitting a new peak) on the Hot 100 and entering Digital Songs at No. 34 (29,000, up 310 percent).

Gwen Stefani, "Make Me Like You"

Stefani's new single has already made history, serving as the soundtrack to the first-ever live video premiere, as it arrived (via a Target tie-in) during the Grammy Awards. The song, from her album This Is What the Truth Feels Like, due March 18, debuts at No. 54 on the Hot 100, powered most heavily by 56,000 first-week downloads sold, which also spurs its No. 12 launch on Digital Songs.

Adele, "All I Ask"

One more Grammys-related Hot 100 move, as the ballad begins at No. 77 after Adele sang it (despite a notable technical gaffe) on the telecast. The song from 25, which returns to the top of the Billboard 200 and is set for a 10th week at No. 1 next week, re-enters Digital Songs at No. 18 (46,000, up 526 percent). "Ask" is the sixth song from 25 to have hit the Hot 100.
