Hot 100: Rihanna Breaks Major Michael Jackson & Madonna Billboard Records

Published: Wednesday 22nd Feb 2017 by Rashad

The last month has been very kind to Rihanna.

Barring that whole Grammy fiasco, the songstress – who celebrated her 29th birthday on February 20th – kicked the month off by learning her latest single, ‘Love on the Brain,’ was officially certified platinum.  As if that’s not enough, this week the song ascended to the top 10 of the Hot 100.  The upward move not only granted her third trip into the tally’s upper dectet from the ‘Anti’ project alone, but it also came as a historic achievement for her (whose Hot 100 resume knows few equals).

In fact, proof of this comes just 1 year after she broke King of Pop Michael Jackson‘s Hot 100 #1s record , she’s now unseated his record-setting top 10’s record.  Get the details inside:


Rihanna’s ‘Love on the Brain,’ which moved to #8 this week, comes as her 30th top 10 hit on the Hot 100.  Moving her past Michael Jackson’s 29 career top 10 hits, Rih becomes the first and only artist of color to have amassed at least 30 entries into the Hot 100’s top 10.

As if tugging at the King of Pop’s Billboard throne wasn’t enough, the accomplishment also snatches a title from Queen of Pop Madonna.

Via Billboard:

Notably, Rihanna sports the second-fastest accumulation of 30 Hot 100 top 10s (from an act’s first-ever week in the region to the first week in the tier with its 30th). Having first hit the top 10 with “Pon De Replay” on the July 16, 2005-dated chart, she needed 10 years, seven months and two weeks to tally 30 top 10s.

While she’s the leader for the most Hot 100 top 10s, Madonna took 12 years, eight months and two weeks from her first top 10, “Borderline,” to her 30th, “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina” (June 16, 1984-March 1, 1997)…

To sum it up, as of this week Rihanna is:

  • First artist of color to have 30 career top 10 hits on the Hot 100
  • Fastest accumulator of 30 career top 10 hits on the Hot 100 among solo artists (male or female)
    • Only The Beatles did it faster

Add to this, she is already:

  • The only artist to have a #1 single from 7 consecutive albums
  • The only female artist of color to have a #1 single this decade
    • Solo & as a featured artist
  • Countless other Hot 100 achievements we can’t even begin to name

There is no other way to spin it:  that Rihanna reign just won’t let up!

      Good for her I love her music and image. BUT you can’t compare the achievements of yesteryear to the achievements of today. It’s a completely different ball game now. Look at Future he just had a number 1 album with 55k physical sales and next week his next album will probably do the same.

    Great for Rihanna, but Michael released only 6 albums in the 22 years between 1979-2001 (his solo years). Rihanna released 8 albums in 11 years between 2005-2011 and many more singles than Michael did.

    So, IMO he’s still the greatest based on the fact that musical tastes changed so much between the late 70s to early 2000s and he was still able to make huge hits.

    I don’t know enough about madonnas discography to compare, but I know she released more than Michael did.

      There is no denying that MJ is the greatest. That’s not what this post is about. The fact remains that Rihanna has beat out his record. This isn’t a debate on whose greater than who. And your logic is baseless because I can think of 100 artist who have more albums and singles than Rihanna is still don’t have ANY #1 records. Haters love to use the excuse that Rihanna releases a lot of music that’s why she has a lot
      of #1 singles. If that was the case then all these flops would have to do is release a lot of albums then they would have a lot of hit singles like Rihanna? Right.

        It’s not “hating”. I’m saying if you want to compare, compare two people who have released the same amount of music in the same amount of years. It’s like comparing someone who released one album and 3 singles in 10 years with someone who released 6 albums and 10 singles in the same amount of time. Of course the person who released more will have a greater chance at having more number ones. I love Rihanna, but I’m not gonna compare her to michaels record when he released a lot less music than she did.

        It isn´t thanks to streaming??? It sure isn´t thanks to real sales when the bish has not touched the top10 of itunes with this song at any point, and Anti´s “staying power” on Billboard 200 a year later sure isn´t thanks to sales when it has literally sold less copies every single week than many other albums throughout the entire year that have been cosntantly under hers on that chart… but magically Anti is still somwhere there. Why is she there for then?

        Rihanna knows damn well what a discount is just as much or more than any other artist. Ask Rated R in its first week and still nobody caring. Congrats to her but her fans need to stop living in the illusion that this singles success so typical when it comes to Rihanna (only thing worth the mention in her case) is only taken seriously by them. Where the talent at? The monumental real sales? I still have never seen neither of those things.

        Swit I don´t think the end of her singles chart success is that far away. Just like Katy Perry´s case. Once you are over 30… in fact streaming has already kind of saved them a little bit. Knowing they have no plan B due to their lack of real album power or talent… I don´t think it is that far away.

    This is a huge accomplishment! as a woman of color she has accomplished something that is beyond amazing! i really don’t understand that hate for her. regardless of if she has released 30 albums in 8 years or streaming accounts for 100% of her music accomplishments, the fact remains she is in demand.the fact remains she makes music that people clearly listen to and she is clearly on her way of being in the record books and being a legend. i think we don’t really appreciate accomplishments by her bc she has done so much and moves at this rapid pace but she has done more in the past 10 years than most do in an entire career. she might go down as one of the most important artists ever when all is said and done.

      Are you trying to be a dumbass on purpose or are you just naturally thick?

      .

      You do know that sales are DEAD right – down 60% from last year whilst streaming is the NUMBER ONE music consumption format in the world hence why its included on every international chart.

      .

      Only 3 songs sold 100K+ this past week in digital sales. Most songs are selling below 75K now. SALES ARE DYING and they wont be growing anytime soon.

      .

      Even katy perry and all have had massive first week sales declines… everyone has but they’re all slaying streaming. Get with 2017 and move on!

      Blah blah blah never staying on TOPIC. No wonder you all get so mad when it comes to someone telling a truth. Gaga is not the topic and she isn´t among my very favorites. But now that you mention it Joanne, an album with a REAL change of genre and direction and no hit singles to support and make peopel listen to it, is on course to sell as much as Anti with all this “singles success”. let taht sink in before making a joke of themselves. I even congratulated Rihanna, didn´t I? 🙂

        You yourself are being delusional. What change of genre? She’s simply riding the ballad trend set by Adele, nothing’s extraordinary. I can’t believe you just said that. If Lemonade creativity can’t impressed you (you said it on prev post), then why Joanne can. It’s harder to make an album movie that’s cohesive (and with songs of multiples genres)

        0 0
      • JOHNVIDAL February 22, 2017

        King B
        Hey hey hey relax!!!! lol Ballad? In Joanne? No, that´s not the change she has done. The album is not about ballads. Maybe you have not listened to it and are taking Million Reasons as the entire album? She has really changed direction, in many fronts. I mean it is obvious and it is the reason why some peopel left her behind this era supposedly to begin with. Don´t tell me now that she hasn´t made a change please! About Lemonade: I have never said it is not cohesive, you must be mistaking me for someone else. Last week I remember saying Beyonce doesn´t have to be the best just cause some of her fans say so and that there are many many many otehr talents out there, and especially in the past (I say that cause some of her fans talking about about “OF all tome” last week). Beyonce´s last 3 albums are her best musically, no doubt. I don´t remember saying I´m IMPRESSED with Joanne´s CREATIVITY either. Look, Gaga is one of the biggest talents in mainstream now, and I´m more into her than into Beyonce, same way you are the opposite. But I have never said Gaga is the best and that´s it or things like that. Nor I have denied truths about her like sales declines or whatever. I repeat, I´m not a delusional stan. That´s the difference. It´s funny that this post is not about Lady Gaga anyway, she really did soemthing right this era against all odds when people have to constantly mention her to reply to me (as if she were my biggest music “idol” to bein with).

        25 is ahead of everybody in sales but that album wasn’t released in 2016 – it was released in 2015 and outsold ur faves album 7x over. Stop putting them in the same bracket. Of all the albums released in 2016, ANTI was the only one to find success in both album sales/streaming and singles sales/streaming. Your girl flopped with every single and sales in general are so low that Lemonade has yet to outsell 4. Rihanna has more album certifications WW also. ANTI has moved 2.1M album equivalents in the usa whoch is the same as lemonade… lemonade is only 400K or so ahead of it. Im not even a rihanna stan but this s*** is obvious. Shes still achieving top tens a year later.

I´m not a Beyonce fan but I just cannot at delusions from stans. The singles charts success has to come accompanied by equally impressive album power. Has never been Rihanna case, and it is teh reason why nobody takes her seriously exceot for her stan base.

        It’s one of the biggest era but definitely not the biggest. Congratulations to her for breaking records and she’s a force when it comes to Hot 100. She has the most top 10, most number ones, most streams, most Vevo views, most singles sold, airplay, just any records related to SINGLES. But it is just strange that her album never sold more than 3 Mil copies. For example, GGGB couldn’t outsell Teenage Dream and The Fame, all of these are their biggest era. She also never had 200 M tours or top Forbes like those artists as well as JB, Adele, Taylor. This is just weird. Marian was once the Hot 100 Force, but she has no problem selling albums.

        .

        GGGB has far outsold Teenage Dream. GGGB is at 9.1M units WW whereas teenage is at 6.8M units. Furthermore, LOUD has sold the same amount as teenage dream. Also, LOUD and TALK THAT TALK are the two top selling albums by a Black artist this decade – male or female followed by Beyonce and 4 and then lemonade and ANTI.

        .

        I get what you’re saying but stop.

      No. I’m comparing US sales since she had 14 number ones and 30 top tens in US. All three of them had a re-release with multiple hits. TD and TFM was released in weaker market. GGGB charted for 99 weeks, compare to TD and TF 200+ and 170+ weeks respectively. Both Gaga and Katy had 200M tours and top Forbes before.

      I DID NOT MENTION BEY. And thanks for bringing up Beyoncé. Beyoncé is R&B artist who makes R&B, urban musics, the fact that she sold as much as the pop artist shows her star power. Bey is all about catalogue sales. Remember when 4 opened with 310k? It sold nearly 1.6 Mil now. Just 900k away from BTW. Imagine those 400k of BTW wasn’t included, lol just 500k away.

        Beyonce has been doing really well on sales these last few years as I have been saying for a long time. During the 00s, she wasn´t one of the very top sellers. However, now that sales are so poor in general, she made the change she needed to make, and is now one of the top sellers. I have always recognized that since that started to happen. I have no problem telling truths even if I´m not into her (Rihanna fans now calling that clinging to Beyonce lol).

        Datredd Your arguments are so 4-year-old-like that I don´t really know how to reply to you. You can find those type of lyrics in any of these girls catalogues. But yes, with the difference Gaga actually songwrites them, and of course with the difference Gaga is able to songwrite many other type of songs. I mean, at this point, trying to deny Lady Gaga´s talent, just makes you look a damn basic fool.

    I see Johnvidal is busy pissing all over himself and atill clinging to Beyoncé for some credibility. Girl hang it up already all these talent yapping you are doing like some used up tapon is dated and redundant.
    Instead of worrying about Rih, ur focus should be on Gaga who is currently tn need of ur support. Rih has proven time and time again that she deserves every accolade that co, es her way by being consistent, hard working and remaining the hit machine she is designed to be. If it’s so easy, ur fave wouldn’t be struggling even with a superbowl, mega album release promo, discounting of both albums and singles. And being almost everywhere. even with ANTI being a change in direction and showing a lot of artistic growth, you and ur band of haters are still convulsing with hatred. Rih is here to slay. Get over it sis.

      LOL oh yes I´m so pressed over Rihanna that I hadn´t visited a post about her (I actually clicked cause Michael Jackson´s name was also involved) in months 🙂 🙂 🙂
      Truth of the matter is that none of your points are valid and that 3 or 4 STANS thumbing up the comments they like won´t change the truths people know about Rihanna. Nobody talked about Gaga. But you insist (funny that nobody mentions my lifetime faves LOL) and I´ll give you this: Joanne, a difficult album to sell, is on course to sell as many REAL copies as Anti, without hits and all. What does that make Anti????? 🙂 Your own reasonings invalidate your “arguments”. It wa sa nice attempt at trolling though.

      • Datredd23 February 22, 2017

        John had a major discount though sweetie and Anti is over 3.5 million equivalent albums sales worldwide. Where is Joanne? Her album is available on all steaming platforms aswell but will not see nearly those numbers ! Even after Anti had 1.4 million free copies given away!! All that promotion GAGs did ?! White privileged and all and she still can’t sell more then Anti or have a hit single ! I mean is been a year later and Rih just got another top 10!

        0 0
      • JOHNVIDAL February 22, 2017

        Only truth of the matter is that Joanne is on course to sell as much as Anti in the USA despite not having the biggest promo of all: A hit single. I don´t understand why you are mad at that. I certainly am not.Nobody, absoliutely nobody, and certainly not me, has said Gaga is having tremendous success sales wise lately. However, you and a few delusional stans are making it seem like those sales (or similar) from Rihanna are a big success of an era. Be more realistic and unbiased. Just that.

      • JOHNVIDAL February 22, 2017

        I don´t know how much Million Reasons costs since I don´t follow her every move and I don´t buy digital cheap singles 🙂 Million Reasons is still higher than that anyway and Love on the Brain is not top10 anyway then. You just keep proving my point. Rihanna is always higher than she should thanks to streaming and other things 🙂
        The point of teh post is Rihanna breaking a Michael Jackson singles record, which is as luaghable as when Katy perry did it. Nobody takes is seriously since everybody knows each of thsoe artists real success. Your obsession with Gaga is real, and like I said, it´s funny you don´t come for my favorite artists ever. Only Gaga when nobody mentioned her.

        Well if yoi don’t know how much she is selling, perhaps u should shut ur mouth and not brag with a chat position of an over discounted product in comparison to a full priced single that has zero push or promo but manages to be thriving based on QUALITY.

LOL Stans already tried to destroy Gaga´s career but it didn´t happen cause her talent is giving her longevity on all fronts where it matters most (which is credibility and recognition) and will give her that in the future. However, singles won´t give you longetivity once they are over. I still don´t understand how this was about Gaga but anyway.

        Already explained like 10 times in this post. Do you have trouble understanding? It is about Rihanna. I didn´t trash her. Only congratulated her on her streaming success, and said a truth that she is bigger in singles than in real sales. That´s all. You didn´t have to bring up anyone else, no. And once again, nobody told you I only have one fave or that my very fave is Lady Gaga. She simply is not to begin with. I am very sensitive towards people that have problems of any type, so I´m sorry for not detecting at first that you have comprehension problems. I´ll try to avoid your replies in the future so that you don´t feel forced to make a second or third reply to my reply. Ok? Cheers!

    I knew JohnVidal, an obsessed Rihanna hater would be here. Always saying the same b*******. Rihanna is ahead of Mariah and Whitney in tour gross and singles sales, she has way more #1 hits worldwide, earns more money. Outside of their albums sales (thanks to the peak of albums sales, their sales are horrible since 2000s sans The Emancipation of Mimi),their success is mediocre.
    Loud is the best selling album by a black artist this decade with Talk That Talk being the second one AND WE KNOW BLACK ARTISTS HAVE IT HARDER BECAUSE OF RACISM. Anti was among top 10 best selling albums worldwide/in the US last year, so was Work.
    No one cares about Celine, she has 0 impact/influence. Janet Jackson sold less records than her but destroys that karaoke, nasal singing h** with fake/calculated emoting on stage. Great proof that numbers mean nothing.
