Rihanna Notches 25th Hot 100 Top 10 Hit, Matching Elvis Presley
Album sales be damned, Rihanna is still the unapologetic queen of singles — and the Bajan banger, who’s frequently notching esoteric Billboard sales records, has a new feather in her cap: As of this week, with her Eminem collab “The Monster” debuting at No. 3 on the Hot 100, she’s now had 25 Top 10 hits on the Hot 100, tying her with Elvis Presley.
There’s seven artists still ahead of her — Madonna remains queen, with 38 songs on the chart — but it is worth noting that the ratchet queen of pop is several decades younger than the next-youngest person on the list. If she keeps churning out hits with the same breakneck speed, the 25-year-old singer could actually overtake Madonna’s record by age 30.
See the list of her Top 10-conquering compatriots below.
