Rihanna Breaks Record for Most Pop No. 1s

rihanna-net-worthBillboard Magazine cites that Rihanna becomes the first artist in the 20-year history of Billboard’s Nielsen BDS-based Pop Songs radio airplay chart to tally 10 No. 1s, as “Stay,” featuring Mikky Ekko, rises 2-1.

Rihanna breaks a tie with Katy Perry, who’s notched nine No. 1s since her 2008 arrival; also impressively, Rihanna has rung up her No. 1 sum since just 2006, when “SOS,” her first leader, reached the summit. She’d last led with “We Found Love,” featuring Calvin Harris, for eight weeks, marking her longest command, in late 2011/early 2012.

 

Here’s a recap of Rihanna’s record 10 Pop Songs No. 1s:

2006, “SOS” (one week at No. 1)
2008, “Take a Bow” (three)
2008, “Disturbia” (three)
