Rihanna Scores Double Domination Atop Billboard 200, Hot 100
Rihanna Scores Double Domination Atop Billboard 200, Hot 100

As the superstar celebrates her first Billboard 200 No. 1, she remains atop the Hot 100 for a second week with 'Diamonds.' Phillip Phillips, meanwhile, returns (again) to the top 1

As Rihanna soaks in the success of "Unapologetic," which, as previously reported, becomes her first Billboard 200 No. 1 album, bowing with 238,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan, she maintains her No. 1 ranking on the Billboard Hot 100 for a second week with the set's lead single, "Diamonds."

Rihanna is just the second artist this year to lead both of Billboard's signature album and song rankings simultaneously. Adele doubled up atop the tallies, respectively, the weeks of Feb. 4 and 11 with "21" (which passes 10 million in sales this week, according to SoundScan) and the set's third Hot 100 No. 1, "Set Fire to the Rain."

Rihanna Earns First No. 1 Album with 'Unapologetic' on Billboard 200 Chart

Adele was the only act to earn such a twofold command last year. "21" lead single "Rolling in the Deep" led the Hot 100 for four of its seven total weeks at No. 1 while the album topped the Billboard 200. Second single "Someone Like You" did the same (for one of its five total weeks in charge of the Hot 100) the week of Nov. 5, 2011. ("21" has totaled 24 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 overall, marking the chart's longest reign since Prince and the Revolution's "Purple Rain" also ruled for 24 frames in 1985.)

The last artist before Adele to control the Billboard 200 and Hot 100 concurrently did so with Rihanna's assistance. For four of the seven weeks that Eminem's "Love the Way You Lie," featuring Rihanna, led the Hot 100 in summer 2010, the rapper's album "Recovery" held the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200. Earlier that year, Ke$ha's "TiK ToK" was amid its nine-week Hot 100 dominance while her debut album "Animal" roared onto the Billboard 200 at No. 1 (Jan. 23, 2010). (More on Ke$ha in a moment ...)

"Diamonds" shines again atop the Hot 100, fueled prominently by its 8% gain on the Hot 100 Airplay chart, where it holds at No. 2 with 126 million all-format audience impressions, according to Nielsen BDS. It tallies a third week atop On-Demand Songs with 1.08 million on-demand streams (up 3%) (and 1.24 million overall streams), according to BDS. "Diamonds" dips 1-2 on Hot Digital Songs, although it increases by 3% to 176,000 downloads sold, according to SoundScan.

"Diamonds" (atop Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs for an eighth week) handily wins the race to No. 1 on the Hot 100, leading Ke$ha's "Die Young" (3-2) by approximately 5,000 chart points. "Diamonds" gains by 5% in overall points, while "Young" surges by 7%. The latter title pushes 5-3 on Hot 100 Airplay (115 million, up 7%), while remaining at No. 4 on Hot Digital Songs (151,000, up 14%) and slipping 2-3 on On-Demand Songs (870,000, down 4%). As previously reported, the first single from Ke$ha's Dec. 4 album "Warrior" becomes her third No. 1 on the radio-based Mainstream Top 40 chart this week.

Maroon 5's former nine-week Hot 100 No. 1 "One More Night" drops 2-3, although it logs an eighth week atop Hot 100 Airplay. The song boasts the latter chart's longest rule since Rihanna led for 12 weeks (Dec. 5, 2011-Feb. 18, 2012) with "We Found Love," featuring Calvin Harris. "Night" maintains its No. 1 ranking on Hot 100 Airplay with 132 million in audience (down 5%). It holds at No. 4 on On-Demand Songs (787,000, down 4%) and falls 7-9 on Hot Digital Songs (117,000, down 1%).

Bruno Mars bullets again at No. 4 on the Hot 100 with "Locked Out of Heaven," which, thanks to a 7-4 climb on Hot 100 Airplay (112 million, up 24%), claims top Airplay Gainer honors. The first single from Mars' Dec. 11 set "Unorthodox Jukebox" reaches the On-Demand Songs top 10 (11-9; 686,000, up 3%) and gains by 2% to 151,000 downloads sold, despite backtracking 3-5 on Hot Digital Songs. With its latest sales frame, "Heaven" passes a million downloads sold to date.

PSY's former seven-week No. 2 Hot 100 hit "Gangnam Style" rebounds 7-5 with top Digital Gainer accolades, spurred by the Korean rapper's show-closing performance of the song with Hammer Sunday, Nov. 18 on the American Music Awards, broadcast on ABC. The track returns for a sixth week atop Hot Digital Songs (2-1) with a 42% uptick to 229,000 downloads sold; of that sum, 41,000, or 18%, stem from the duet version, which mixes in Hammer's 1992 No. 5 Hot 100 hit "2 Legit 2 Quit." The buzz translates to a 10% gain (to 910,000) for "Style" on On-Demand Songs (3-2). After peaking at No. 12 last month, it descends 41-49 on Hot 100 Airplay.

fun.'s "Some Nights" falls 5-6 on the Hot 100, followed by the Lumineers' "Ho Hey" (8-7).

As he enters the Billboard 200 at No. 4 with his debut album "The World From the Side of the Moon," reigning "American idol" champ Phillip Phillips returns to the Hot 100 top 10 with "Home," which, in its 22nd week on the chart, reaches a new peak (12-8). Following his "Idol" victory, "Home" debuted at No. 10 (June 9). It fell off the chart after three weeks but returned, blasting 84-9 the week of Aug. 18 courtesy of its usage in NBC's coverage of the U.S. women's gymnastics team at the Summer Olympics. Radio airplay has since swelled, helping the song remain in the Hot 100's top 30 since the week it vaulted back to the top 10. The arrival of Phillips' debut set helps grant "Home" top Streaming Gainer honors on the Hot 100, as it bounds 31-12 on On-Demand Songs (606,000, up 38%). It advances 9-6 on Hot Digital Songs (131,000, up 27%) and 14-12 on Hot 100 Airplay (67 million, up 5%).

Flo Rida's "I Cry" (10-9) and Ne-Yo's "Let Me Love You (Until You Learn to Love Yourself)" (6-10) round out the Hot 100's top 10.
