That Rihanna reign just won’t let up. The Barbados singer rules the charts once more with her latest single “Rude Boy.”
Rihanna earns her fifth solo and sixth overall No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 as her single jumps 4-1, replacing labelmate Taio Cruz atop the Hot 100. The last time she occupied that spot was in 2008 on T.I.’s single “Live Your Life.” Other No. 1s include “S.O.S.” (2006), “Umbrella” (2007), “Take a Bow” (2008), and “Disturbia” (2008).
“Rude Boy” is the third song from Rihanna’s Rated R album to land in the Top 10. The-Dream and Tricky Stewart-produced “Hard” peaked at No. 8, while lead single “Russian Roulette” topped off at No. 9.
Little Miss Sunshine is already back in the lab working on more potential chart-toppers for her next album. Sean Garrett shared details of the project with Rap-Up.com. “The record I gave her was very, very positive, very big,” said the singer-songwriter. “It’s just so infectious. It’s about getting past any drama and just being happy to be alive.”
