With both Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith having 4 tracks in the Top 40 this week, I was asked elsewhere to see when the last time that happened was.

It's taken a bit of work, but I've found it.

Any guesses to how long ago it was, and who the artists involved were?

Was Rihanna one of the artists involved?

Yes she was.

She has also had more weeks with 4 or more tracks in the Top 40 than anyone else.

That doesn't surprise me. How many weeks in total? And was the other artist David Guetta?

Rihanna has done it 15 times - full summary to come when someone hits the nail on the head, or 1:00 pm if not.

The other artist was not David Guetta, he's never had 4 in the 40 in the same week.


Mods - sorry for somehow creating a duplicate thread, can the other one be deleted please?

Is it W/E 26/02/2011? Tinie Tempah had 5 songs (Eyes Wide Shut, Wonderman, Pass Out, Written In The Stars and We Bring The Stars Out - whatever that last one is?) alongside Rihanna's S&M/Who's That Chick?/What's My Name?/Only Girl (In The World).

Looks like you've hit the nail on the head! I never would have guessed Tinie Tempah.

Ding! Ding! Ding! - We have a winner! Prior to that, it had only happened once more, back in 1957.

Ruby Murray 4 successive weeks, Mar 1955 3 occurences of 4 tracks , 1 of 5
Bill Haley & His Comets 12 - 8 successive in Sep-Nov 56 plus 4 odd weeks to Feb 57 8 straight weeks with 5, 4 in other weeks
Elvis Presley 13 times, 3 successive weeks end of 1956, 8 successive in 1957, 2 with the re-issues in Feb 2005 2 weeks of 7 tracks, 1 of 6, 4 of 5
Shadows 7 weeks, including a run of 3 in May 61 and 2 in Jun 63 4 tracks each time
Beatles 3 successive weeks in April 76 5 tracks, then 6, then 4

Michael Jackson 4 consecutive weeks after his death in Jul 2009 6, 13, 10 and 5 tracks
Glee Cast w/e 20 Feb 10 4 tracks
Rihanna 13 weeks between 11 Dec 10 & 19 Mar 11 plus 2 weeks in late 2011 Mostly 4 tracks, but w/e 25 Dec 10 had 5
Tinie Tempah w/e 26 Feb 11 5 tracks

Well, Tinie Tempah was massive in 2010/11, but that is a massive achievement for a Black British rapper tbh!

Saying that, I've never heard of 'We Bring the Stars Out', was it a Brits mash-up or something? Forgot about the JLS feature too.

We Bring The Stars Out and Pass Out are the same song surely?

Chris Brown w/e 16 Apr 11 4 tracks
I think this would be the most recent if Kanye West's 'All Of The Lights' counted towards Rihanna; that song seemed to be credited differently in every source but the OCC do have her listed, surprisingly.

Thanks for counting this!

So Michael Jackson having 13 songs in the Top 40 the week after his death is a record? The only artist I can imagine would beat that record is Madonna if she were to pass away in the near future - not that I would want her to of course.

I was going to guess the 1950s. If credits as a featured artist were excluded, I would have been right.

I guess a lot of these situations were because of album releases tongue.gif

Also Miami 2 Ibiza. The title they chose is somewhat of a mystery.

IIRC it was combined with 'Pass Out' initially in the mids but they then (correctly, IMO) changed their mind and let it chart separately.

I doubt she would get that many songs back in the top 40, whilst she's undeniably iconic she doesn't have quite the status MJ does. Her effect will probably be slightly bigger than Whitney Houston; she had 'I Will Always Love You' (#14), 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)' (#20) and 'One Moment In Time' (#40) in the top 40

Would a famous singer dying affect the streaming chart more than the download chart, I wonder?
