Needed Me is bigger than Work, why?

ATRL told me that Rihanna needs Drake, Calvin, Eminem etc and that she can't get solo hits.

So why did Needed Me, a solo #7 peaking song, ended up being more consumed and more streamed than Work, a 9 week #1 hit featuring Drake (who is one of the biggest male artists of the century)? Did talent win?

Rihanna doesn't "need" anyone for hits. Whoever says that is clearly uneducated regarding Pop Music.

 

That being said, Work was #1 for quite literally 9 weeks. Let's hope people got sick of it by now.

The difference is still about ~200k. Tbh both songs were big, but Work felt bigger. Didn't it have higher peaks across the globe, more views and streams? 

 

But to answer your question: Needed Me simoly aged better and is on a lot of more playlist than Work.

Needed Me was a US single only though so comparing its WW peaks with Work is pointless.

Needed Me has to be one of the biggest 7-peaking singles of all time.:clap3:

 

Did it with an age-restricted video which is still blocked .

You literally can’t deny Work’s impact though. Nothing sounded like it when it came out and then a few months later, we heard Work-wanna-be’s on radio such as Tory Lanez’s LUV.

Work was much bigger than Needed Me worldwide but the latter wasn’t local, it got 350M non-US streams on Spotify and it did 10M+ SPS worldwide
