According to Billboard Magazine, Rihanna has scored her 11th #1 single on the Hot 100 charts, officially passing singers Janet Jackson and Stevie Wonder, who each have 10.
With this latest accomplishment, Rihanna surpasses two of the greatest artists in musical history and ties another, singer Whitney Houston, who also has 11.
Should Rihanna’s grip on the Hot 100 continue unabated, and we all know it will, she will soon tie or even pass Madonna, who has 12 chart toppers and possibly Michael Jackson, who has 13.
After that, she’ll have to tally 7 more number ones to reach singer Mariah Carey, who has 18 or 9 more to reach The Beatles who hold the record with 20.
So, can she do it? Hell no! White folks ain’t never gonna let anyone match the record set by The Beatles. You see how when Mariah got too close her career magically took a downward turn.
