Fifth Harmony Earns First No. 1 on Billboard Rhythmic Songs Chart

It’s a special accomplishment for Camila Cabello, Ally Brooke Hernandez and Lauren Jauregui

The Latina singers and their fellow Fifth Harmony members have earned their first No. 1 on a Billboard airplay chart as the all-girl group’s “Work From Home,” featuring Ty Dolla $ign, moves up 2-1 on the Rhythmic Songs chart.

The song breaks a 15-year drought for girl groups atop the list. Not since Destiny’s Child crowned the list in 2001 with “Survivor” has a girl group reached the chart’s top spot.

Fifth Harmony becomes the 12th female group overall to top the chart, which was launched on October 3, 1992.

“Work From Home” reaches the top in its 10th charting frame, rising 18 percent in spins in the week ending May 8, according to Nieslen Music. The act had previously charted on Rhythmic Songs with “Worth It,” featuring Kid Ink, peaking at No. 19 in August, 2015.

The climb bumps rapper Belly from a three-week topping run with “Might Not.”

Between 1992 and 2001, these all-female groups led the chart with 21 total songs. Here are the 12 acts that have topped Rhythmic Songs (by number of No. 1s, then alphabetical):

5, TLC
3, Destiny’s Child
2, En Vogue
2, Salt-N-Pepa
2, SWV
1, 702
1, Blaque
1, Fifth Harmony (NEW)
1, Jade
1, Mokenstef
1, Spice Girls
1, Xscape

On the Billboard Hot 100 chart, Fifth Harmony scores its first top 5 as “Work From Home” hops 7-5, besting their previous No. 6 peak. An 8 percent climb at radio, to 10.5 million audience impressions, according to Nielsen Music, aids in the climb while 15.9 million weekly U.S. streams, through the week ending May 5, also contribute to the ranking.

“Work From Home” becomes the first top five Hot 100 hit by a girl group since Dixie Chicks‘ country hit “Not Ready to Make Nice” (No. 4) in 2007; the latter act offered its approval upon learning the stat, tweeting a hearty, “Congrats ladies!”

“Work From Home” is the first Hot 100 top five by a pop girl group since the Pussycat Dolls‘ “Buttons,” featuring Snoop Dogg (No. 3), in 2006.

Levy Tangos His Way to a Near-Perfect Score on DWTS

He may have injured his ankle during rehearsals… But that didn’t stop William Levy from storming back to the top of the leaderboard on Dancing with the Stars after a lackluster performance last week.

The 31-year-old Cuban telenovela star—who graced the cover of last week’s People magazine—earned his two first 10s of the season and an impressive score of 29 points for his thrilling Argentine tango with partner Cheryl Burke. That near-perfect score resulted in Levi landing atop the leaderboard alongside Welsh opera singer Katherine Jenkins, who also scored a 29 for her own Argentine tango.

Over the weekend, Levy had announced via his Twitter account that he’d messed up his ankle while preparing for this week’s show.

“Just wanted to let u know that I injured my right ankle pretty bad during rehearsal..MRI tomorrow. I’ll let u all know…Love u all,” the Triunfo del Amor star wrote on Sunday.

Despite a torn ligament in his ankle, Levy showed no signs of strain during his performance to the Pussycat Doll’s “Buttons” on the hit ABC reality dancing competition’s Latin Night.

“Pulsating passion! Throbbing intensity!” declared DWTS judge Bruno Tunoli. “I saw mood, I saw sensuality and passion,” commented judge Len Goodman on Levy’s Argentine tango, which Carrie Ann Inaba called “ridiculously amazing.”
