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.

38, Madonna
34, the Beatles
28, Michael Jackson
28, Stevie Wonder
27, Mariah Carey
27, Janet Jackson
27, Elton John
25, Elvis Presley
25, Rihanna
23, Whitney Houston
23, the Rolling Stones
