When Rihanna‘s latest single ‘We Found Love’ remained at the top of the US singles chart last week, it became the 36th week the performer had spent atop that chart since her debut.
This of course came much to the horror of Beyonce fans as it meant the pair were now tied for having spent the same amount of time at #1.
Now- as of this chart week- the pair are no longer tied. For, the ‘S&M‘ singer has now impressively bested the 36 week record she once shared with Knowles.
Find out how below…
As ‘Love’ is the #1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 for a third week, Fenty has now spent 37 weeks atop this chart, surpassing her own and beating Beyonce‘s record by one week.
This is not the first time this single has helped the entertainer make music history.
When it rose to the top on the sixth week of its US release, it became her 11th to date- tying her with Whitney Houston to have just as many #1 singles in the country, placing her third behind Madonna who has 12 and Mariah Carey who has 18.
Undoubtedly one of her more commendable feats, there is little doubt that when Ms. Fenty is the single’s Queen of this generation.
However, it should be noted that while Beyonce was able to achieve 36 weeks at #1 with just 5 singles, Rihanna was only able to achieve this with 11.
Either way, let’s just hope the RihannaNavy are just as vigilant when it comes to purchasing copies of ‘Talk That Talk‘ next week.
Because, without a #1 album to her name, it will be quite some time before this Pop tart will ever be able to match the commercial feats scored by a woman who has proved time and time again that when it comes to music- quality will always surpass quantity.
