It almost doesn’t seem fair how Rihanna, Kendrick Lamar and Justin Bieber are dominating the charts right now. If you think “dominate” may be too strong of a word, then you haven’t been watching TV, listening to the radio or visiting YouTube. These three have crossed genres and are giving other artists a huge run for their money.

Rihanna’s “Work,” featuring Drake, is leading the way on the Billboard charts. She recently kicked off her ANTI World Tour and so far, fans have been enjoying every bit of the entertainment. Check out her reign on all of these diverse charts.

Justin Bieber came back with a new style and a completely different swag. Those who once wouldn’t be caught dead listening to Bieber, found themselves praising his latest album, Purpose. The album was released at the end of last year, so he has lost some leverage in a lot of genres, but he’s still going strong. Here’s where he remains on the Billboard charts.
