After Rihanna surprised fans with her ANTI album last week, the album’s lead single, “Work,” has made a splash on Billboard‘s charts.

According to the publication, the Drake-assisted tune has debuted at number one on the Digital Songs chart, selling 126,000 downloads in its first week, becoming Rihanna’s record-extending 14th number-one on the sales chart.  

“Work” also opens at number one on the R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Songs chart and at number 15 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart, which marks her highest debut ever on that chart.

Additionally, the track opened at number nine on the cross-genre Hot 100 while ANTI bowed at number 27 on the Billboard 200 album chart after only one day in stores. 

Industry forecasters suggest ANTI could land atop the Billboard 200 chart next week and with approximately 125,000 in sales and streams.
