You know you are doing something right when you surpass the King of Pop Michael Jackson. For Rihanna, this holds true as she has just passed Michael Jackson on the list of all-time top-10 hits.
Thanks to her latest single “Love on the Brain” entering the top-10 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, Rihanna has now passed Michael Jackson for the third most top-10 singles of all-time, according to Billboard. With “Love on the Brian’s” entry, Rihanna now holds a total of 30 top-10 hits.
The 29-year-old singer stands in third place all-time when it comes to total top-10 hits. She is behind only The Beatles (34) and Madonna (38).
Rihanna accumulated her 30 top-10 hits in the second-fastest time (10 years, seven months and two weeks). The only artist to do it faster was The Beatles, who managed to collect 30 top-10 hits in just five years, nine months and two weeks.
The first single of Rihanna’s to crack the top-10 was her 2005 debut single “Pon De Replay.” From then until now, singles such as “Umbrella,” “Don’t Stop The Music,” “Rude Boy,” “Work” and “This Is What You Came For” have all helped Rihanna make history.
At only 29-years of age, Rihanna still has plenty of time to break the all-time record. Now, let’s just see if she does!
