The Mainstream Top 40 chart (or Pop Songs) tallies the highest played songs on radio week on week, measuring the highest played songs on mainstream radio stations akin to Ryan Seacrest‘s KIIS FM.
This week, thanks the support she has garnered from radio, Rihanna has secured her 10th #1 on the chart, giving her the record for being the only artist to have as many songs to top the tally, once ‘Stay’ reached its new peak.
As it stands, the single is now the second ballad to reach the coveted spot, following the release and subsequent chart reign of Bruno Mars‘ Smeezingtons’ produced ‘When I Was Your Man‘.
