    CONGRATS TO EMINEM & RIHANNA!!! what an accomplishment on both their parts to get a #1 record!

    RI just keeps making hits…what an amazing feat for someone still not 10 years in the business

  3. HOTSTUFF December 11, 2013

    My Baby slaying effortlessly without a new album out. The Haters thought she would be irrelevant because there was no Rihvember! #DATREIGH

  4. SevynWon’tStop December 11, 2013

    On behalf of all Sevyn fans I want to thank Sam and TGJ for supporting her as much as you do. We notice that s*** and it means a lot to us.

  5. #KingBey2014 December 11, 2013

    Congrats to Ms. RiRi for her 13th #1 single!! 🙂

  6. KissesForKelly December 11, 2013

  9. Lovebird (LOUDER – 04.03.14) December 11, 2013

    Slaying, winning, icon.

    13 number ones. Queen.

  10. RiriRoyale December 11, 2013

    Thanks for the nice article TGJ but do you have to promote your random favs every damn where. We know Elijah is amazing, we know Sevyn is great, we know August is exciting but you don’t have to force them down our throats.

  11. KatyKadet December 11, 2013

    Damn, celebrating somebody else’s success? Katy has her OWN number ones.

  12. GagitaMaraj December 11, 2013

    Where is What Now?

  13. D December 11, 2013

    and who goes #1 WITHOUT a video?!?!! lol smh … the names ALONE have enough power to get the top spot…

    thats some ICONIC s**t!

  14. Lily December 11, 2013

    As a #RihannaNavy I’m Damn happy for her. She keeps breaking Records. Hate it or love it she will continue breaking that Record. Maybe its going to be 14 #1’s if she and Shakira duet hit #1. God will continuing Blessing you no matter what the Haters will say or do to bring you down. You will continuing soaring High.

  15. SoGone4Monica December 11, 2013

    Get your own hit.

  16. BeyWhoUWanna December 11, 2013

    Have you heard the news? The Mrs.Carter Show is already making double of what the Diamonds tour made. #ElleOhElle.

  17. christinastherealtalent December 11, 2013

    This is how Rih will keep herself relevant without an album out. Feature herself on everybodys damn song.

  18. Netta December 11, 2013

    Uhhh tgj does not force Sevyn or August down our throat. Rita and Elijah, yes. What do they have in common? Roc Nation!

  19. Cake Like Lady Gaga December 11, 2013

    13 Number One Hits with no songwriting talent….?


  20. RitaBonita December 11, 2013

    @Netta What are you trying to say?

  21. VisionOfMimi December 11, 2013

    Oh no. 13 number ones and she didn’t write a single on!

  22. Lmab4Life December 11, 2013


  23. My Forehead Tho December 11, 2013

    Congrats, i guess. It only took 13327626 albums, 562377 singles, and 36632 features to achieve this feat. but good for her. I’m sure Katy will be just as happy when she surpasses this feat with half the albums and no features.

  24. Breezy’sGirl December 11, 2013

    Not TGJ making me stan for them for giving Queen Sevyn some free promo.

  25. Timor Hardy December 11, 2013

    Bonafide #1s
    All songs written by someonelse…


  26. yawnnnnnn December 11, 2013

    When is she going to write her own songs?

  27. SheAintU2002 December 11, 2013

    Better not see any August Alsina stans in this thread.

  28. Molly December 11, 2013

    Congratulations Em and Rih! yall have two number 1s together that’s huge.

  29. Netta December 11, 2013

    Katy won’t pass Rihanna anytime soon. Not the way Unconditionally is struggling…..

  30. Molly December 11, 2013

    Death at people trying use Katy against Rihanna lol

  31. Netta December 11, 2013

    @Rita I meant exactly what I said. Is your vision impaired?

  32. Cheated #1 December 11, 2013

    ….thanks to Eminem and his great songwriting ability. No Riri…she is just a sponge.

  33. Molly December 11, 2013

    Can’t wait to see johndivals breakdown.

  34. NickiBeenBad December 11, 2013

    So not only is the song not hers, she also didn’t write it. OK.

  35. Netta December 11, 2013

    What legacy will Rihanna leave other than having 13 #1’s? Serious question.

  36. Common Sense December 11, 2013

    Congratulations to Eminem! As far as I’m concerned she is just featured and should get no credit. You either lead the song or are in a duet if the #1 is going to apply. I’ll be even more impressed when Rih manages to write one of her hits.

  37. BeyBeyKing December 11, 2013

    That’s nice. How much money will she make from it. Oh, nothing? Zilch? Zero? Poor dat.

  38. BanjeeRiri December 11, 2013

    Nett is a Roc Nation hater. Keep hating. We winning ouchea.

  39. Lovebird (LOUDER – 04.03.14) December 11, 2013

    Johnvidal’s meltdown in 5,4,3,2,1…


  40. MuiMui December 11, 2013

    Back when us children was growing up in the Islands,
    Mom and Granny used to always tell us all, what ever you do be the best at it. In other words that meant even if you wasn’t a Entertainer and I am not, then if you are in the , medical field,War, Science, Trash man, be the best at that. When its all said and done, we are all going to have to say Good By to this world and move on ,just like those before many of us has done.
    This is indeed a huge accomplishment for her and Eminem. And many will try and turn it every way they can to make it not be as huge as it is, but its to late,the glue has already been cast,
    this is making history and breaking records no matter how you diss and slice it.

  41. sisqo is the king of R&B December 11, 2013



  42. TeenageDreamer December 11, 2013

    Too bad she couldn’t write 13 number ones.

  43. Start the drama start the music December 11, 2013

    @Netta exactly. I like Rihanna somewhat. But let’s be real. She’s just like Britney. Contributes nothing to her career as a musician. I’m not saying that as a hater. I feel like she COULD contribute more to her artistry but chooses not to. Leaning on others for success as usual.

  44. LaLopez December 11, 2013

    From now on I shall call her CoattailHanna.

  47. Lovebird (LOUDER – 04.03.14) December 11, 2013

    She did, and it BLOCKED Beyonce’s LAST HIT.

    Come on rude boy boy can you get it up

  48. MuiMui December 11, 2013

    JohnDival can take themselves and check in to the nearest crazy house,because she have got the last laugh with this milestone,hands down.
    And they can talk about Callobs till all the wild horses come home,it do not matter. I can remember when there was talk about another musician who was gaining on Mariah’s number Ones.But it seem to many that there are some of the so called best Singers/Entertainers who have not had a hit since the frog layed a egg,looool.

  49. royalkev December 11, 2013

    Well Congrats to Em + Rih! I didn’t think the powers that be would dare let Rihanna obtain more #1’s than Madonna! I noticed that Rih was starting to snatch #1’s on every other chart (Pop/R&B), but the Hot 100 lately. Now that this 13th #1 is out the way, it’s no doubt in my mind that Riri will surpass MJ, and later Mariah. I think it’s safe to make this prediction now. This was her biggest hurdle. It’s a new industry!

  50. kai2dashawn December 11, 2013

  51. JOHNVIDAL December 11, 2013

    Congrats to woman beater Eminem! Everything about Rihanna´s “achievements” is pure self shade. Seriously 🙂
    Dead at @trollbird waiting for me. Why don´t you reply when I answer your absurd arguments in previous posts today for example? Afraid everybody can see the truth? I´ve seen at least 3 people calling you out on your hate and stupidity. Check it out and have a good night.

  52. kkkkkkkk December 11, 2013

    The Monster

    Marshall Mathers Bryan Fryzel Aaron Kleinstub M. Athanasiou Robyn Fenty Jon Bellion Bebe Rexha

    She has writing credit on this song so it deserves to be counted as hers. Whitney didn’t write any of her songs so let’s not.

  53. LOL December 11, 2013



  54. THE GREAT LACE FRONCE. December 11, 2013

    Queen Rih slays your faves yet again!The f.a.g.s. on here said the song wouldnt go #1 Lady Caca’s album is flopping, THIEVINGonce is irrelevant, and the hermaphrodite Cedric had the biggest flop of the year.QUEEN Rih wins again!!!!!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 :):) 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

  55. Lovebird (LOUDER – 04.03.14) December 11, 2013


    You’re supposed to have your scheduled meltdown novella, why you hiding boo?

  56. Netta December 11, 2013

    @start the drama:

    I stanned for Rihanna from 2007-2010. I can no longer take her lack of artistic growth. There are so many videos on Instagram of her twerking/dancing to rap music but where are the videos of her singing? Does she even appreciate MUSIC? She’s just a fame w**** these days who sits around waiting to break another record.

  57. Navy Nick December 11, 2013

    I just laugh @ all of this-HOTMESS . COM (please know that I like Rihanna, I do) I appreciate her fun music, BUT she is NOT ORIGINAL, and to be passing up artists who wrote their own music, who actually perform amazingly, is just a JOKE-CONGRATS BOO DO YOUR THING, I CANNOT HATE, but MUSIC is DEAD these days! She did write on her 13th # 1 tho, get it!!!

  58. sisqo is the king of R&B December 11, 2013


  59. MuiMui December 11, 2013

    Don’t worry about who wrote what for her, just know that it still take a singer like her with her beautiful Caribbean Accent to bring it to life. And her music videos tells the truth always mind blowing and will be remembered from now to eternity.
    Tell you what look at how Diamonds, stay, what now, is doing. And see if you can name Ten musicians of this last two decades who have got a single that has over 600 Million views like one of her’s and so many platiuum.
    See bull is easy to talk,especially when you are mad at your own life ,and bitter because you are walking around with those two weights on your feet,and one wrapped around your neck helping to hold you down. Keep talking and keep ,looking for her name in print.
    And most of all keep following her Generic Everything according to you.

  60. FreeBreezy December 11, 2013

    Beyonce’s name is in this post because?
    Congrats to Em and Ri!

  61. Rosie December 11, 2013

    Comments are already a mess. Lemme perch.

  62. FAF December 11, 2013


  63. the voice December 11, 2013

    Lets just hope Sevyn’s manager and label send her to do TV and radio interviews/performances in Europe, New Zealand, AustrALia and Asia…

    I mean if Rihanna, Drake and Nicki can get into arenas in the UK and Europe… so can the multitalented Sevyn

    She should have done the BBC 1xtra show in the UK last month.

    Hopeflly she goes over there to do Jools Holland like Miguel did.

    Sevyn girl go perform at some of those televised festivals in Europe… If no performing azzz Iggy can get booked on TV festivals so can SEVYN ….

    Sevyn would kill it live.

  64. BEYHIVE_MINAJ December 11, 2013

    Congrats to both ladies. You both really deserve it. Can’t forget to congratulate eminem too. I’m happy to see my baby winning. I keep laughing at the people who say he’s overrated. Once again,the critics lose. #RapGod

  65. just me December 11, 2013

    Why all the unneccessary hate.
    Not every song goes #1. And she got 13 #1, only 3 are features. If rihanna was not featured on this song it wouldn’t have gone top 10 and that’s the truth.
    Not every singer is a songwriter also.
    No need to explain to the haters cuz they will never change and with that been said and after everything she keeps on winning
    I don’

  66. Erickane December 11, 2013

    Neither does Elvis Presley

  67. ROSEGOLD December 11, 2013

    Thats nice. Congrats to all…..

  68. Tallb December 11, 2013

    wasn’t s&m a remix?
    still a great accomplishment

  69. Erickane December 11, 2013

    like her voice live

  70. Hmm. December 11, 2013

    Congrats to both !

  71. Lily December 11, 2013

    Why are ppl bothered that she didn’t write her song. Not all Singer are gonna be a Songwriter. Stop hating. Whitney didn’t write her song too so why always Mad at Rihanna. Ok I got the answer cus she’s always breaking RECORDs. Deviate from that attitude, there’re many sickness for you Haters like Hypertension,Heart Attack or Cardiac Arrest cus anytime you see or hear Rihanna breaking Record or Soaring Higher you Haters Heart beep which is very bad.

  72. Onika Slays A Bxtch -ASBEENISH- December 11, 2013

    im actually so excited for lea’s album.

  73. ratedx(love is beautiful) December 11, 2013

    I already knew she was going to get another numero uno..good for her…she knows how to pick a hit song, cant hate or be mad at that…

    it’s not her fault that she can make more features into number ones than some of the people yall stan for..

    I laughed at eminem “women beater”, because he can beat a woman and get away with making a song with a woman who got her ass beat…only in America

    who am I to judge..

  74. The Reign December 11, 2013

    LMAOOO so now since the Queen jas her 13th #1 8 years in the game the seethers try to use writing her songs to downplay her success when most of them stan for Beyawnce who doesn’t even know how to hold a pen. Give props where they are.. writing songs mean nothing because a perfectly written song would be nothing without an artist to bring it to life. CONGRATS RIH FOR SLAYING WITHOUT AN ALBUM AND KEEP THE HATERS ON THEIR TOES.


  75. ratedx(love is beautiful) December 11, 2013

    I’m curious, why do people care about whether or not she wrote any of her hits?

    I would rather not be known as a fake songwriter, than put my name on a song, just so people can think I’m a writer..

    rihanna can easily just slap her name on a song, the bish is worldwide…so if she chooses to not to take credit for something she didn’t do, that’s a good thing…

    whitney houston never wrote any of her hits….but the difference is rihanna is making a lot more from her tours, clothing, makeup, hell just her name alone makes who gives a s***

  76. ShitGotReal December 11, 2013


  77. HappyBirthdayQueenBeyonce(YAAAAAASSBITCHURTHEQUEEN) December 11, 2013

    Rihdog still claiming other people’s hits? Shame on her. SHAAAAAAAAAAME on her.

  78. B****, I’m Fabolous December 11, 2013

    In Jamaica they would call Rihanna a teef because all she does is steal people’s things.
    She tole Fefe Dobson’s style and now she’s stealing Eminem’s number one. GETCHO OWN HO!

  79. QueenAriel (Under The Sea Mix tape Out Soon) December 11, 2013

    I’ll never forgive ha for jacking Queen Ariel’s swag.
    Pay homage b****.

  80. RiriRoyale December 11, 2013

    Queen Ariel? Oh please, not you stanning for a b**** who sold her voice just to get some d***. B**** already living under the sea but I guess the p**** wasn’t wet enough.

  81. QueenAriel (Under The Sea Mix tape Out Soon) December 11, 2013

    Oh hunty, don’t give Miss Ariel too much. At least Ariel’s man claimed her when she got to the mainland b****. Chris still ain’t put a ring on Rihanna’s finger? The only crabs Ariel be having be called Sebastien, I wish I could say the same for Rihanna’s p****.

  82. Head C*** In Charge December 11, 2013

    If I’m not mistaken, Rihanna has a writing credit on “The Monster” so…….. SIMMER DOWN BASICS

  83. MC!! December 11, 2013

    Whitney Celine Elvis and beyonce didn’t write their songs does that take away any success they have or music credibility away from them….no mariahs probably the only big ballad pop singer who do write her own lyrics solely alone especially her 90s work. congrats rihanna!! some people are just singers songwriting ain’t for everyone!

  84. QueenAriel (Under The Sea Mix tape Out Soon) December 11, 2013

    When will Rihanna? When will serve the vocals? WHEN? Nevah!

  85. QueenAriel (Under The Sea Mix tape Out Soon) December 11, 2013

    Beyonce and Elvis can sing, Rihanna cannot. DEAL.

  86. Draggin4MrsCarter December 11, 2013

    Every single movie Beyonce has been in has a box office success.


  87. thelma December 11, 2013

    SHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAADE!!!!!!!!!! looooooooooooool SO TRUE!!!!!!!

  88. Rihboy December 11, 2013

    Not all of katys number ones were pause that mess. Secondly, Rihanna is the reason that song had any success at all. Moreover she deserves to claim she did love the way you lie…lastly majority of her feats were solo renditions. So dont b**** about her being featured…she is still slaying these h*** out here. Is Bey even in the ranking.

  89. Haha December 11, 2013

    But when will she do it by herself?

  90. thelma December 11, 2013


    SMH What kinda ICONIC slayage!!!!

    Jealous bishes seethe!!!!! lmaooooo loving it!!

  91. Haha December 11, 2013

    I like Johnvidal. People are just pressed because he spills a lot of tea about R******. Nothing he says is a lie tho

  92. Haha December 11, 2013

    Not Rihanna hopping on all the rappers songs to get that feat. Congrats EMINEM.

  93. Faf December 11, 2013

    She already did it by herself 10 times lame f**

  94. SheMeHerStan December 11, 2013


  95. JT December 11, 2013

    Did Whitney write all 11 of hers??? Please….stop with the excuses… you being bitter isn’t gonna change stats and FACTS

  96. JT December 11, 2013

    or u mean rappers reaching out to get HER on THEIR song. Not like she’s just choosing to be on rapper’s songs lol please

  97. h2o December 11, 2013


  98. Gilberto December 11, 2013

    “Rihanna is the reason that song had any success at all”
    Really? So why is What Now at the bottom of the charts? LOL.

  99. Jessie December 11, 2013

    Too bad she had jump on Ems track to acheive this. She couldn’t do it with Right Now, Pour It Up controversy and What Now.

  100. JoJo December 11, 2013

    Where is Do What You Want ?

  101. musiclover December 11, 2013

    congrats rih but tbh 13 number 1’s but only 2 are classics the rest are forgettable…she needs to put out quality music !! quality over quantity

  102. Ballsy December 11, 2013

    Rihanna is 25 .. the same age as Madonna was when she started. That puts things into perspective when you think of how much more years she has to soar!

  103. Ballsy December 11, 2013

    @Cake Like Lady Gaga — Yet look at Gaga and her “songwriting skills” flopping left right and center!

  104. Chica December 11, 2013

    @Ballsy or she could end earlier

  105. Vicky December 11, 2013

    Interesting, what numbers are Eminems other two releases from this album. I’m waiting.

  106. Vicky December 11, 2013

    How many number 1’s does Em have on this Album so far? I’m wating. How about he asked her to jump on that record like he always does.

  107. Beyanca December 11, 2013

    Congrats to ms.Rih,Em,And Sevyn

  108. NAVY COMMANDER December 11, 2013

    Congratulations slayanna, let the haters continue to seethe and grasp at straws for bad things to say, but when you drag their fave it’s a problem? Kiii

    And Katy won’t be having any #1s anytime soon , not with unconditionally’s performance on the charts.

    Lol and haters come for the queen when their fave has been out double Rihanna’s time and barely has half her #1s? Kiii


  109. FreeBreezy December 11, 2013

    I can sit here and try to name all 18 of Mimi’s #1s and I probably would miss a few, but not because they were forgettable! Thats a silly excuse to have towards Rihanna
    Congrats b****

  110. Rihanna # 1 Fan T December 11, 2013

    i love it goo rih,, and i am happy for sevyn!

  111. Mark111 December 11, 2013

    WHAT?!!!!! Rihanna is that chic! Breaking legends records. And to think that her and Bey were tied with the most in the 2000’s with 5, Now Rih is in the 2010’s with 8 and it’s only 2013.

    Where’s Gaga’s #1 hit this year?
    Where’s Rita?

    Funny, the hater wanted her to stop releasing albums, she did and still killing your faves. And to think she’s 5 away from taking MC’s seat. #HISTORIH #LeftSideOfAnIsland

  112. MC!! December 11, 2013

    um what now is #25 where’s beyonce’s…somewhere in between the lines of her added tour dates.

  113. CIARA HARRIS=THE NEXT SOCIALITE December 12, 2013

    CONGRATS to BOTH of them!!!! NAVY we don’t need to address those who try and bring her down. at the end of the day, the stats speak for themselves…

    …after all that she is accomplished there is still doubt about her abilities & that is just going to drive us and RIH to continue to make great music…
    …so you HATERS can just sit back relax, and enjoy the making of a LEGEND

  114. MONSTERR December 12, 2013

    Rihanna’s favourite scholl subjects were chemistry and mathematics.
    That’s why she’s intelligent and rulez like madonna.

    Beyonce was very dump at school,and had bad grades.She liked sport.

  115. TinaMinaj December 12, 2013

    Right???? People make this look like such a big deal but the girl has SEVEN albums. By the time Katy has 7 albums she would have had way more number one’s than Rihanna and then what will Rihanna have to her name?

  116. juju December 13, 2013

    Usually around this time it’s her debut single from a new album that’s @ #1

  117. Shay February 28, 2014

    Does anyone know how much sevyns EP sold so far
