Rihanna Makes History With Her 10th No.1 Single

Not Beyonce, nor Mary J Blige, could do this. But lil ol’ Rih Rih from way over in the Caribbean pulled it off. Take that and that and that…who is laughing now….

Rihanna’s”S&M” rises to number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 granting the singer her 10th No. 1 on the survey and ownership of a pair of historic chart records.

Having first reigned atop the Hot 100 the week of May 13, 2006, with “SOS,” Rihanna logs the shortest span between a solo artist’s first and 10th No. 1s in the chart’s 52-year history, a stretch of four years, 11 months and two weeks.

Rihanna bests the five-year, four-month span between current Island Def Jam labelmate Mariah Carey’s first (“Vision of Love,” Aug. 4, 1990) and 10th (“One Sweet Day,” Dec. 2, 1995) toppers to complete the quickest sprint to 10 Hot 100 No. 1s among solo artists. (Carey collected the first 15 of her 18 career No. 1s while signed to Columbia Records).

Among all acts, Rihanna trails only the Beatles (one year, eight months and one week) and the Supremes (two years, eight months and three weeks) for the fastest accumulation of 10 Hot 100 No. 1s. ( Hip Hop Wired)
