Rihanna Ties Madonna For The Most UK and US #1s Song

“We Found Love” by Rihanna featuring Calvin Harris jumps from #2 to #1 in its sixth week on the Hot 100. It’s Rihanna’s 11th #1, a total matched by only three other female solo artists in the chart’s 53-year history. Mariah Carey leads among female solo artists with 18 #1 hits, followed by Madonna with 12 and Whitney Houston, also with 11. Rihanna this week pulls ahead of Janet Jackson, who has had 10.

In the U.K., “We Found Love” slips to #3, following three weeks at #1. It’s Rihanna’s fifth song to reach #1 in both the U.S. and the U.K., which puts her in a tie with Madonna for the most transatlantic #1s among female artists.

Rihanna previously topped the charts in both countries with “Umbrella” (featuring Jay-Z), “Take A Bow,” “Only Girl In The World” and “What’s My Name” (featuring Drake).

Madonna reached #1 in both countries with “Papa Don’t Preach,” “Who’s That Girl,” “Like A Prayer,” “Vogue” and “Music.”
