Rihanna has done it again. One year after topping the charts with “Diamonds,” the pop singer has landed her 13th No. 1 for her collaboration with Eminem.
“The Monster,” which appears on Eminem’s album The Marshall Mathers LP 2, tops the Billboard Hot 100 this week, rising 2-1. The duo dethrones Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball,” which ruled the chart for three weeks.
Rihanna now ties Michael Jackson for the third most No. 1s in the Hot 100’s history, surpassing Madonna and the Supremes. Only Mariah Carey (18) and the Beatles (2) have more.
Eminem also makes his own history, tying the record for the most Hot 100 No. 1s among rappers with five. He shares the honor with Diddy and Ludacris.
“Ohhhhhh BOMBA!!!! #Jah RULE every ting!!!! We are #1 in this muthaPHUCKA!!!! @Eminem congrats to you and all the fans!!” tweeted RiRi. “Wow!! I cant tell yall how I’m shaking! I cant believe this!! You did this!! #13 number 1’s! Where dey do dat at? Hardly! Yall epic az phuck.”
“The Monster” is Eminem and Rihanna’s second No. 1 following “Love the Way You Lie,” which topped the Hot 100 for seven weeks in 2010.
