Rihanna Scores Her 12th #1 Single

According to Billboard Magazine, Rihanna has scored her 12th #1 single. On the same day Hits Daily Double declared her ‘Unapologetic’ album would be the #1 album in the country next week, ‘Diamonds,’ the lead-off single from that album, rose from 2-1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

With her latest chart topper, Rihanna ties The Supremes and Madonna in fourth place for artists who have the most number one singles. Only Michael Jackson (13), Mariah Carey (18) and The Beatles (20) have more.

Billboard also notes that Rihanna’s rise to 12 #1 singles took her six years and seven months, exactly six months quicker than it took singer Mariah Carey to reach the same milestone.

  1. congrats! but that outfit is terrible, she looks pretty though! That’s how you know riri is pretty, she can literally wear a garbage bag but you see that she is gorgeous lol

  2. I actually like that song Diamonds. She is not the greatest singer but one thing you can say about her is her music is distinctive. You can give her credit because nothing she makes sounds like her last song that was out. That is what makes her stand out is all her music and videos look completely different.

  3. I like the new album. It has a lot of great songs. I was certainly boppin my head a little while waiting for my oil change today.

  4. Rihanna did a great job!!! It’s a good buy, for real…some really good songs that sound great without the video, so this should be yet another great run!!!
