Rihanna Breaks Chart Records with 10th No. 1 Single ‘S&M’

Rihanna

Rihanna is whipping the charts into a frenzy. The pop siren soars to the top of the singles chart this week with “S&M,” smashing records in her path.

Her raunchy Loud single and its remix featuring Britney Spears moves 2-1 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week, becoming her 10th No. 1 hit. But that isn’t her only accomplishment. Rihanna earns 10 No. 1s on the Hot 100 in the shortest span for a solo artist since first debuting atop the chart with “SOS” four years, 11 months ago.

At 23 years old, she also becomes the youngest artist to achieve 10 No. 1s on the Hot 100, besting labelmate Mariah Carey who was 25 at the time. Additionally, she tallied her No. 1s faster than Carey. Among all artists, the Barbados singer follows only the Beatles and the Supremes for the fastest accumulation of 10 Hot 100 No. 1s.

“10th!!!!!Now LOOK at what u did… #RihannaNavy U rocked that shit OUT!THANK U so much, this is the BEST news!U guys #werk hard #whosyadaddy,” tweeted a thrilled RiRi, who also thanked Britney Spears’ fans. “#BIGUP to @britneyspears and all her wonderful fans who supported this song.”

Steve Bartels, Island Def Jam President and COO, added, “Rihanna’s tenth #1 single is a monumental accomplishment and a testament to her incredible artistry. 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, her ongoing dominance on the charts, and the entire IDJ team who worked so diligently to bring this one home.”

  8. m.i.k.e.

    this is one of the least deserving #1′s ever… the remix was bad bad bad, but obviously was made just to give S&M the extra push to beat Katy Perry in downloads

    i love Rihanna, but it’s not fair neither, that the songs she’s been featured as an artist and barely sings anything beside the chorus are counted as her own #1′s too…

    [Reply]

    Prettiedove Reply:

    @m.i.k.e., Lmfaoooo #byyyyeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!! Are u kidding me????? S&M has also been counted for Brit, any collaboration counts for the person featured as well weather the person sang just a line,chorus or just smiled in the song, what matters is that u were featured in it.

    You waste so much time throwing shade on other artists while bigging up your own favs. Its stupid and pointless because the artists you worship so much doesnt actually care about you as an individual

  41. Cameo

    YES!!!!

    And people stop bashing GaGa… I love them both equally, there is no point in saying one artist is better then another because its all how you view it. However, I do think that Judas will be #1 this next week. The only reason I fear it wasn’t this week is because it was leaked early and had a pushed up release. #10 is very impressive for Judas and respectable. But Im stoked that RIRI has her 10th #1 !!!!!! She deserves it and works her ass off! Congrats to all the artists in the top 10!

    for many different reasons, I can’t see her as legendary when i compare her to many of the artists who have come before her- even as compared to many of her contemporaries. i do think this song is worthy of being a #1 though–it really is a great song all around–probably her best yet.

    Rihanna can thank Britney Spears for making this happen! Is it just me or does it seem like Rihanna and her team used Britney to get this song to #1? I mean think about it, Britney’s own second single “Till the World Ends” was just getting back to the top of the charts when this was released. It’s almost as if Britney sabotaged her own single from being successful but mind you, this song did give Britney her 5th #1 hit!

    But why isn’t she able to sell truckloads of albums?

    Adele will soon outsell her in the USA and WW likewise and her album’s been released just WEEKS before!!!!

    @ranjeet, Well Mariah for sure own her!

    [Reply]

  59. ranjeet

    She can’t get past a platinum certification even if she has the biggest hit of the year. Look at Eminem, he slaughtered her in the USA- 3m sold off of her name!
    Beyonce will outsell Rihanna in a few weeks and so will gaga!

    Since her Career started, Rihanna hasn’t even been able to surpass ‘The Emancipation Of mimi’ sales in the USA!! omg!

    She needs huge artists like Britney spears on the most third class remix in the history of music to take her to number 1 !! And all those features! If beyonce does so many features, she’ll snatch 5 #1s in a YEAR.

    Adele is going to EAT her alive at the grammys, US sales, UK sales, WW sales.

    How many weeks does Rihanna have at #1?? Lemme guess- 25? 30?
    Mariah had 54 weeks at the penthouse by her 10th #1 single.

    Rihanna can never compete with Janet, Whitney, Madonna and Carey in terms of popularity and album sales.
    Even the fasion in which she achieved #1s is not even close to being as remarkable as Carey did in the 90s!

    Rihanna can never be on Carey’s level even if she gets 200 #1s.
    Learn it. Live it. Accept it.

    I’m confused. She has all these # 1′s but always cancelling tour dates. If her fan base is so big where’s her fans when she’s having concerts? Or is it her camp helping her songs get #1?! Something is not right.

    [Reply]

    Kyle Reply:

    @nicole, It’s all because of the DIGITAL ERA that we live in now. Rihanna is pretty much a digital singles artist. If you look at her album sales and concert sales, they don’t match up. It’s the power of Itunes that propelled all of Rihanna’s singles to #1. She is one lucky girl.

    [Reply]

    Shaleed Reply:

    @nicole, The truth is Rihanna voice is very limited, it don’t last long. So she has to keep canceling her tour dates to give her voice time to heal. She wants to make sure she sounds decent live for once!

    I must say that I really think “S&M” deserves to be #1 because the song is catchy as hell but Britney Spears did it NO JUSTICE. I think the song soley belongs to Rihanna. And also, congrats to her it’s quite the accomplishment.
