Beyonce Nears Hot 100 No.1, ‘Drunk In Love’ Becomes 15th Top 10 Single

Beyonce just earned a fifteenth top 10 single with "Drunk In Love."

Following an opening performance at the Grammy Awards last month and Platinum certification of "Beyonce," the award-winning entertainer's single has catapulted 13-2 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Stats for the single were released recently, including a 74 percent rise on the Streaming Songs chart and sales of 151,000 copies that led to the no.2 position on the Billboard Hot 100.

Coveted, "Drunk In Love" is Beyonce's first single to reach this position on the Hot 100 in some time. Her last run at the summit was in 2010 with "Telephone" (Lady Gaga).

"With the song's Hot 100 climb, Beyonce scores her 15th top 10 and first since Lady Gaga's "Telephone," on which she's featured, reached No. 3 in April 2010. "Drunk" marks Beyonce's first top 10 as a lead act since "Sweet Dreams" rose to No. 10 in November 2009. It's also her highest-charting song since "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" spent four weeks at No. 1 beginning the week of Dec. 13, 2008," reports Billboard.

With fifteen Billboard Hot 100 top tens to her credit, Beyonce ties with Connie Francis and Olivia Newton John for seventh place among women with the most top 10s in the Hot 100's 55-year history. She surpasses Pink, Donna Summer and Taylor Swift, who have 14 a piece.

"Drunk In Love" is also Beyonce and Jay Z's fourth shared Hot 100 top 10 (and the third with Beyonce as the lead artist).

"With Jay Z as the lead, "'03 Bonnie & Clyde" reached No. 4 in December 2002. The couple followed with "Crazy in Love" (eight weeks at No. 1, 2003) and "Déjà Vu" (No. 4, 2006). (With the pair having wed in 2008, "Drunk," thus, marks the Carters' first top 10 as husband-and-wife.)," reports Billboard.

"Drunk In Love" is up to no.1 on the Streaming Songs chart as well thanks to 9.4 million streams, up 74 percent. The single has also entered the Digital Songs chart top 10 moving 18-7 and is no. 14 on the Radio Songs tally.

Katy Perry's "Dark Horse" (ft. Juicy J) is currently at no.1 on the Billboard Hot 100. It moved 373,000 copies last week, up 27 percent for a second week at the summit.

Will Beyonce make it to no.1 on the Billboard Hot 100 next week?
