Rucuss staffNovember 2, 2011
Beyonce didn’t do it. And, it wasn’t Lady Gaga either.
Pop singer Rihanna reins supreme over the competition. RiRi reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for the 11th time in her career with her new single “We Found Love.” Her new single is her 20th top 10 hit, which surpasses Madonna’s record by five months. She’s second only to the Beatles.
Her accolades doesn’t stop there. RiRi is also only the fifth woman to earn 20 Top 10 hits to date, joining the ranks of Madonna (with 37 top 10 hits), Whitney Houston (23), Janet Jackson and Mariah Carey (each with 27). Rihanna also holds a U.K. record for most No. 1 singles in consecutive years.
Rihanna, whose the most searched pop star on the internet, owns the social media world. She currently has 46 million Facebook fans, which is more than any other artist. She also has nine million Twitter followers.
