The Billboard Beats: Rihanna’s ‘Diamonds’ Number One for Second Week

billboard rihanna diamonds

The “ROCKSTAR 101”: You win some, you lose some. And this week it looks like Rihanna is learning this lesson the hard way. The five-time Grammy award-winning singer only scored three nominations for this year’s Grammy Awards — for Best Pop Solo Performance (for “Where Have You Been”), Best Rap/Sung Collaboration (for “Talk That Talk” featuring Jay-Z), and Best Short Form Music Video (for “We Found Love” featuring Calvin Harris). But, while the Academy failed to see Rihanna’s single “Diamonds” as award-caliber, the public just can’t get enough. The hit single tops’s Hot 100 list for the second week in a row — and it’s only been on the chart for 10 weeks in total!
