Rihanna Reclaims Pop Songs No. 1 Record

For the third time in four weeks, the lead for the most No. 1s in the history of Billboard’s Pop Songs chart changes hands, as Rihanna’s “S&M” rises 2-1 to become her record eighth topper on the tally.

The coronation breaks Rihanna out of a tie with Lady Gaga and P!nk for most No. 1s dating to the Nielsen BDS-based mainstream top 40 radio airplay ranking’s Oct. 3, 1992, launch.

The three-way deadlock between the female superstars didn’t last long. Lady Gaga notched her seventh No. 1, “Born This Way,” two weeks ago. That track had displaced P!nk’s “F**kin’ Perfect,” which had reigned the prior two weeks.

(Rihanna also fell just shy of the summit with three titles that peaked at No. 2: her debut chart entry “Pon De Replay” in 2005; “Unfaithful” in 2006; and, “Umbrella, featuring Jay-Z, in 2007).

“S&M” propels Rihanna to the honor of most Pop Songs No. 1s after the song had already granted her the mark for most top 10s four weeks ago. The track is her 18th Pop Songs top 10; Mariah Carey ranks second with 17.

Here is a recap of Rihanna’s unprecedented eight Pop Songs chart champions:

Year, Title, Weeks at No. 1

2006, “SOS” (one)

2008, “Take a Bow” (three)

2008, “Disturbia” (three)

2008, “Live Your Life” (two) (T.I. featuring Rihanna)

2010, “Rude Boy” (two)

2010, “Love the Way You Lie” (two) (Eminem featuring Rihanna)

2010, “Only Girl (In the World)” (three)

2011, “S&M” (one, to-date)

Neither Gaga nor Beyacky could come for Riri when they came together on Telephone, only to have Riri snatch their collective wigs with Rude boy. They aren't as big of a threat as folks want to think. :coffee:

Kii!

She's about to get another #1 with "S&M" and "Man Down" will most likely become another #1 hit too. I see why the Bey stans are moved...

:lmao:

LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO @ Beyaki & Lady Tran not being as big as people think when they have hits that can sustain longer than hers on the BB hot 100

KIIII @ Yaki selling more albums with less hits & albums than Rihanna

KIIIIIIIIII @ Mr. Man Man's record sales damn near that of Rihanna's with 1.5th of an album & an even bigger KIIIII @ almost ALL OF her singles generally pushing more than any Rihanna single.

BONUS KIIIIII for her gal pal Katy almost catching up to her in single sales with less albums as well.

& yet theyre not as big as we think? If thats the case then I'd dread to know w/e level Rihanna is on.
