So Just if you didnt know Rihanna's 'S&M' hit No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 April 24, marking the sexy fierce Barbados-born singer's 10th No. 1 single. and with the Britney Spears-aided 'S&M (Remix)' giving her fourth single off the 'Loud' album a bit more push, Rihanna will attain the honor of scoring 10 No. 1's on Billboard's Hot 100 in the shortest span of time. She recorded her first No. 1, 'SOS,' just four years, 11 months and two weeks ago. The singer also beat out labelmate Mariah Scarey by almost five months. lets face it MC. we love to H.A.T.E.U. Not only did Rihanna beat Mariah she pretty much slaughtered that dolphin in the tropic waters of popularity and to the chart record in a shorter period of time, but at 23, she's also the youngest artist to notch 10 No. 1's in the chart's 52-year history, besting Mariah again, who was 25 when she scored her 10th single. hahahahahaha! (sorry Im a huge Rihanna fan). And Rihanna even thanks miss Britney via twitter saying. "10th!!!!!Now LOOK at what u did ... THANK U so much, this is the BEST news!" "BIGUP to @britneyspears and all her wonderful fans who supported this song."
The red-haired phenom is the ninth artist to achieve 10 No. 1 singles, and the fifth solo female, following Janet Jackson, Whitney Houston, Madonna and, of course, Mariah, with a whopping 18 No. 1 hits to her credit. "Rihanna's tenth #1 single is a monumental accomplishment and a testament to her incredible artistry," said Island Def Jam President Steve Bartels. "This was a truly collaborative and creative effort, spearheaded by Rihanna's tireless work and aided in no small part by the incredible Britney Spears and her team. I am extremely proud of Rihanna."
Rihanna's Grammy-winning fifth album 'Loud' was released on November 12.
