This year has been pretty good to Rihanna with the success of ANTI and an incredible world tour.

And, now the singer can add one more thing to this stellar year — tying with Michael Jackson for the third-most top tens in history.

The singer, whose recent single “Needed Me” has soared up the charts, has now charted 29 top ten hits throughout her career, a number that ties her with the King of Pop.

Ahead of the two are Madonna, who has 38 top tens, and The Beatles, who’ve earned 34. 

It’s likely that Ri will eventually bump Jackson to fourth and continue to break records and climb charts as her career continues. Rihanna already has eight albums and tons of collaborations under her belt and we don’t see her stopping anytime soon.
