YESSSSSS!!! The song has picked up like no one would have guessed and could easily become her 13th #1 single!
Billboard reports the following:
Beyond the flurry of activity atop the Hot 100, Rihanna adds her own headlines at No. 3, as “Stay,” featuring Mikky Ekko, vaults with top Digital Gainer honors from No. 57 in its second week on the chart. After she performed the ballad at the Grammy Awards (Feb. 10) and subsequently released its video, it bounds 25-2 on Hot Digital Songs (306,000, up 358%) and debuts on Streaming Songs at No. 7 (3.9 million). On Radio Songs, it lifts 74-57 (24 million, up 53%).
“Stay” becomes Rihanna’s 24th Hot 100 top 10, pushing her past Whitney Houston and the Rolling Stones (23 each) for a solo claim of ninth-place among acts with the most top 10s all-time. Madonna leads all artists with 38 top 10s, followed by the Beatles (34), Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder (28 each), Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson, Elton John (27 each) and Elvis Presley (25). (Presley’s career, however, predated the Hot 100’s inception).
Will.i.am and Britney Spears’ “Scream & Shout” slips 3-4 on the Hot 100. It climbs 6-5 on Radio Songs (98 million, up 3%) and 7-4 on Streaming Songs (4.8 million) but plummets 2-10 on Digital Songs (158,000, down 3%). It passes 2 million downloads sold to date.
