Rihanna Scores 11th No. 1 Single with ‘We Found Love’

Rihanna

Rihanna reigns atop the Billboard Hot 100 once again. The pop star has earned her 11th No. 1 single with “We Found Love.”

The Calvin Harris-produced track rises 2-1 on the chart this week based on airplay and digital sales. The song, which serves as the first single from Rihanna’s sixth album Talk That Talk (Nov. 21), registered 243,000 downloads for the week.

According to Billboard, the Barbados singer becomes the seventh artist in the Hot 100’s 53-year history to score 11 No. 1s, joining the Beatles (20), Mariah Carey (18), Michael Jackson (13), Madonna (12), the Supremes (12), and Whitney Houston (11). She surpasses Janet Jackson and Stevie Wonder, who each have 10 No. 1s.

If that was not enough, the 23-year-old ties Houston for most Hot 100 chart-toppers by a female, only trailing Carey and Madonna.

A grateful RiRi took to Twitter to celebrate her latest achievement. “YELLOW DIAMONDS IN THE LIGHT!!! #RihannaNavy you make me look so damn good!! Yall da illest!! Congrats on our 11th #1 We Found Love! Thank U,” she tweeted. “11th NUMBER ONE?????? That shit CRAY!!!! RihannaNavy Talk that Talk!!!!! #WeBadUMad.”

    @rihannastan!,
    #1 I never said Rihanna doesnt have talent I said she is not that talented.

    #2 Charts arent everything I been saying this, where was chasing pavements from Adele’s 19 album . . . oh okay

    #3 Charts are based on popularity thats why they aint shit, as for the grammys she has, she has earned then because the ones she actually got by herself is for the “dance” catorgory and there is no denying that, that’s all she is.

    #4 I’m done:-P

    There aren’t many artists placing singles on top of Billboard at the moment, since it’s the recurring names that are getting the #1 spot all the time (Rihanna, Katy Perry, Black Eyed Peas etc). Rihanna alone has placed something like 5 in the last couple of years.

Rihanna i’m so proud of you even more so for the fact that you included us in your tweet of appreciation tweeting that it’s “Our11th” made me as fan & consumer feel happy & noticed! Thank You Rihanna for the hits, keep ‘em coming & the RihannaNavy will be right there to support you no matter! Can’t wait to see what the album holds, with a start like this, i will be first in line at bestbuy! I cannot believe it, so young to have that many hits at #1! #QueenOfTheCHARTS!

    @Audrey Hepburn, Katy just tied the record with Michael for most #1′s off one album, now she shitted on your fav. When Bey go number one it stays for more than 5 weeks, a true #1 song. Gaga songs has made #1 and stayed up their for a while. Rihanna it goes #1 than leaves in 1 week.

This bitch is NOT seeing Katy, GaGa or Bey … Katy is a good writer, Gaga is more talented, and Bey. Where do I start? Rihanna maybe has 2-3 years left w/ her subpar voice & total lack of performance skill. WHAT AMAZES ME IS THAT HER FANS/STANS CAN GET HER 11 #1 SINGLES BUT NO #1 ALBUM! Let’s not forget the singles on stay @ #1 for a week or 2.

    Poor thing obviously never heard all the underground talent that makes music just because they love it…not because they need worldwide recognition, awards, etc.

    I Love Riri , But Its To Much Talent In The WOrld , FOr Her To Be Breaking Records , She Cant Do Shit . Her Singing is wayy overrated ckuz she cant hold a single note , she cant dance , All Rihaana do is use her sex appeal & thats said because thats not talent .

    [Reply]

    MariahLAMB Reply:

    @Rello, Have you noticed that when Rihanna SINGLES go #1 they only be their for 1 week, now something isn’t right. It’s like her label push a song to #1 and when it goes #1 they stop buying it so it quickly drops. “WFL” is an instrumental, with backing vocals. She has 11 # 1′s with 4 grammys and NO #1 albums, L.A REiD is very grimmy.

    I knew this song would go to #1 this week. The video really propelled the digital sales. Imagine if Itunes was around like 40 years ago? I feel like the Beatles would have 50 #1′s, Michael would have 30, Madonna would have 25…Rihanna is so lucky to have established herself in the digital era because it has really helped her rack up some #1′s.

She just keeps doing her thing, she could care less about what anyone else has to say about her and thats what I love. Congrats to her!

    I think it’s sad when you compare a person like
    Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson, or Stevie Wonder who are true artists with #1′s to Rihanna. The music industry is doing nothing but supporting watered down music. Rihanna makes catchy music, but nothing that is memorable. But let her have some shine.

    11 1#s yes. Its a shame her hits aren’t timeless classics though. Let’s be honest her music will never be remembered as inspirational to the future generation.
