Though Taylor Swift is currently ruling the albums chart with her million selling debut “Speak Now,” it is Rihanna who is ruling the singles chart with the second track from her upcoming “Loud” album. According to Billboard, the singer’s “Say May Name” single debuted at #1 on the Hot 100 based solely on digital sales. Selling just over 230,000 copies, “Say My Name” becomes Rihanna’s third #1 single this year and her eighth overall. Just 5 years into her career, Rihanna is now in 5th place for female singers with the most #1 singles. Only Janet Jackson (10), Whitney Houston (11), Madonna (12) and Mariah Carey (18) have more.
