Please don’t get it twisted, Rihanna is no Michael Jackson. Nevertheless, the Bajan singer has now accumulated more no. 1 singles than the late King of Pop.
Reports the New York Daily News:
“Work” — the 28-year-old’s recent collaboration with former flame Drake — topped the Billboard singles chart on Monday, making her the third artist in music history with the most No. 1 singles.
The “Thriller” singer had danced his way to the top 13 times. Rihanna fittingly surpassed him on the same day she dropped a steamy music video starring the “Hotline Bling” singer.
The only other two artists with more top hits are The Beatles, with 20 songs, and Mariah Carey, with 18.
Before you go there—has Rih Rih made a Off The Wall or a Thriller? Exactly.
Props to Rihanna, though. No disrespect to the Navy.
