Rihanna Scores Her 11th #1 on the Hot 100 Billboard



Rihanna rises to her 11th No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart, as “We Found Love,” featuring Calvin Harris, ascends 2-1 with Airplay Gainer honors in its sixth week on the survey.

Rihanna is just the seventh artist in the Hot 100’s 53-year history to tally at least 11 leaders, joining the Beatles (20), Mariah Carey (18), Michael Jackson (13), Madonna (12), the Supremes (12) and Whitney Houston (11). She passes Janet Jackson and Stevie Wonder, each with 10 No. 1s.

Among women, Rihanna, thus, moves into a third-place tie with Houston for most toppers, after only Carey and Madonna.

“Found,” the lead single from “Talk That Talk,” due Nov. 21, spends a second week at No. 1 on the Digital Songs chart with 243,000 downloads sold, up 5%, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The weekly sum pushes the song past a million in release-to-date digital sales (1,057,000), marking Rihanna’s 20th download to reach the million-selling milestone, extending her record for the most such downloads among women. Eminem’s “Love the Way You Lie,” on which she guests, is her best-selling digital song (5.1 million), followed by her top-selling title as a lead act, “Disturbia” (4.3 million).
