Rihanna earns an impressive 11th number one single.
Rihanna continues to usher in a new wave of mega talent on the charts. Sure, she’s been around for quite some time, but the past few years have undoubtedly belonged to her.
From the release of “Good Girl Gone Bad,” to “Rated R,” to “Loud” in November 2010 and now “Talk That Talk” slated for release on the 21st of the this month, Rihanna is on her way to setting major records.
It was announced today that Rihanna has earned her 11th #1 hit with “We Found Love.” Naturally, her racy and controversial video for the song pushed her to the top.
Rihanna now joins the ranks of some of music’s most sought after stars. She’s the fifth woman in history to land 11 number one hits. Whitney Houston has 23 under her belt, Mariah Carey and Janet Jackson have 27 to their names, while Madonna holds the number one place with 37, according to an Island Def Jam press release.
Congratulations to Riri on taking her career to new heights. It’s almost certain that the next few number one hits will come from her upcoming album.
