Rihanna Flies Past Michael Jackson in Billboard Top 10 Records

Michael Jackson may be the King of Pop, but a new era is dawning. This week, Rihanna passed up the legend on the Billboard charts.

Rihanna released her song “Love On The Brain” back in 2016 as part of her album Anti. However, recently it started gaining more steam. This week, it crept up from the number 13 spot on the Billboard Charts. Now, the song is sitting pretty at number eight.

This makes the song her 30th to get into the top 10, which is pretty insane. The “Umbrella” singer is only the third artist ever to get that many songs to the top. First, The Beatles made the mark with 34 hits. Then Madonna managed to pass them up and get 38.

Before this week, Rihanna was tied with Michael Jackson with 29 hits in the top ten for each of them. Considering she’s still recording music, she could even pass up The Beatles’ record in the near future. However, Madonna is still recording and may gain more chart-toppers herself, so it might be hard for Rihanna to overtake her for the number one spot.

  • “S&M”

Take a listen to her newest top 10 hit, “Love On The Brain”:


Obviously, she’s been putting in the work, work, work, work, work to make each of her albums a success. So far, she’s released eight studio albums since 2005. Her most recent release, Anti, managed to hit number one on the Billboard 200. Rihanna’s corresponding Anti World Tour ended up grossing over $35 million. Hopefully she’s already got her next album in the works!
