Rihanna Sets New Billboard Hot 100 Record


ABC/Lou Rocco

Rihanna continues to flex her muscle on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

According to the publication, the singer has become the only artist to have earned at least one number-one single on the chart from seven consecutive studio albums. Her latest topper, “Work” with Drake, pushes Rihanna past Mariah Carey who has to nab number-one singles from six consecutive, non-seasonal studio albums.

Last week, Rihanna learned that she broke a chart tie with Michael Jackson and she’s now is alone with the third-most number-ones in the history of the Hot 100, following Mariah and The Beatles, though not all of Rihanna’s chart-toppers involved her as a lead artist.

Here’s a list of Rihanna’s albums and Hot 100 chart-toppers they contained:

A Girl Like Me (2006): “SOS”
Good Girl Gone Bad (2007): “Umbrella,” “Take a Bow,” “Disturbia”
Rated R (2009): “Rude Boy
Loud (2010): “What’s My Name?,” “Only Girl (in the World),” “S&M”
Talk That Talk (2011): “We Found Love”
Unapologetic (2012): Diamonds
Anti (2016): “Work”
