Rihanna Breaks Michael Jackson’s Record for Most Top 10 Hits
The Bajan beauty’s latest single, “Love on the Brain,” has moved up five slots on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and has landed at no. 8 on the list. While this is no major feat for the hit-making singer, this is bigger than usual, because it’s her 30th Billboard Hot 100 top 10 hit.
According to reports, that means that RiRi has now surpassed Michael Jackson’s record of being in third place for most top 10 songs, as the two were previously tied for the spot. The only other artists that are above her record are Madonna and The Beatles, who have had 38 and 34 top 10 songs on the chart previously. This is definitely a huge milestone for Rihanna, as she has only been in the music industry for a little over a decade, compared to the multi-decade artists surpassing her.
This week, the top 10 songs on the charts include Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You” at no. 1, Taylor Swift and Zayn’s “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever (Fifty Shades Darker)” at no. 2, and Migos’ “Bad and Boujee” creeping down to no. 3 after a lengthy run in the top slot.
