Before being replaced by Mars’ song, Rihanna’s “Diamonds” spent 3 weeks at the summit of the Hot 100, but has spent the same amount of time at No. 2 as of this week. Worth noting is that “Diamonds” has now spent 12 consecutive weeks atop the R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, despite it not being “R&B” or “Hip-Hop.”

“Ho Hey” by The Lumineers also remains unmoved on the main tally, holding steady at No. 3.

Over on the Billboard 200 chart, Taylor Swift’s album ‘Red’ holds the number one spot for a sixth nonconsecutive week, selling 276,000 copies.

Rapper T.I. makes a triumphant debut on the chart at No. 2 with his new album, ‘Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head’ selling 179,000 copies. This figure is a notable betterment from his 2010 LP, ‘No Mercy’ which bowed at No. 4 with 160,000 copies sold.

Bruno Mars’ latest project, ‘Unorthodox Jukebox’ pulls in at number three with 178,000 units moved in its third week.
