Snapped backstage, the picture above was released as they celebrated the 13th birthday of her debut solo single ‘Crazy in Love.’
The number, which followed the ‘Goldmember‘-backed buzz cut ‘Work It Out‘, was released on May 18th 2003 and led the way for her debut solo album ‘Dangerously in Love‘, which honoured the standout ballad of the same name which appeared on the Destiny’s Child LP ‘Survivor.’
Songstress Holds Record For 'Most Career Top 10s of Any Female Artist of Color'
Despite being galaxies away from their Billboard 200 stats, Rihanna continues to wreck the Hot 100 records of many-a-legend. Already leaving records set by Madonna, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Aretha Franklin, and Janet Jackson in her rearview (as recently as last week), the diva – who has already “technically” surpassed Michael Jackson‘s #1s streak on the singles chart – now shares his top 10 record.

Views earned another 313,000 equivalent album units in the week ending May 12, according to Nielsen Music (with 175,000 of that in pure album sales. Views tallied a 70 percent decline in units compared to its debut frame a week ago (1.04 million units), while its sales collapsed by 79 percent (falling from 852,000 to 175,000).
With the stats above, ‘Views’ holds the honor of being the first and only album released this year to cross the platinum threshold. As we patiently await for more titles to join him, tuck in below to see this week’s TGJ Chart Check:
