Rihanna


Rihanna's "Umbrella" retains its last week position in Billboard Hot 100 while emerging as the first single to sit in #1 slot of Billboard Canada chart.

Billboard has expanded its franchise with the launch of Billboard Canadian Hot 100 on June 7. The single to take the honor being the first #1 hit on the chart is none other than Rihanna's "Umbrella".

The single featuring Jay-Z is placed on top and side by side with Canadian natives' singles such as Nelly Furtado's "Say It Right", Avril Lavigne's "Girlfriend" and Michael Buble's "Everything" in the top 20 list.

The chart is based on the top selling downloads and most played tracks in Canadian radio outlets. Director of charts at Billboard Geoff Mayfield said, "The new Billboard Canadian Hot 100 will serve as the definitive measure of Canada's most popular songs, continuing our magazine's longstanding tradition of using the most comprehensive resources available to provide the world's most authoritative music charts."

Like its predecessor, the data of this Canadian chart is measured out of all adult contemporary genre of music starting from rock, country to Top 40. All of 100 titles will appear on both Billboard.com and Billboard.biz.

Canadian chart aside, on the Billboard Hot 100 this week "Umbrella" also sits at #1 for the second time. The runner-up is still held by Shop Boyz' "Party Like a Rockstar" while the third position is taken by T-Pain's "Buy U a Drank (Shawty Snappin')" featuring Young Joc.
