Exactly six years ago today, “Run It!”, the debut single of Chris Brown featuring Juelz Santana hit the #1 slot of the Hot 100 chart and stayed there for 5 consecutive weeks.
While “We Found Love” by Rihanna featuring Calvin Harris marked her 11th #1 song of her career for 4 consecutive weeks now (chart ending November 26 was her 3rd week on top).
It’s just ironic that two young celebrity acts who used to have a relationship would dominate the same chart with the same date. Plus, both songs featured collaborations with other artists.
Adding fuel to this twist, in the video of “We Found Love”, Rihanna’s boyfriend (both in real life and in the video) portrayed by UK model Dudley O’Shaughnessy shared an uncanny resemblance of Chris Brown as well as how the video’s content appeared somewhat of a re-enactment of the assault between Rihanna and Chris during the 2009 Grammy Awards. Funny eh?
Now to complete it’s “coincidental fate”, let’s wait ’til next week if Rihanna’s song makes it to a 5th consecutive week on top just as what Chris’s song did in 2005. Wanna bet???
