After surpassing King of Pop Michael Jackson‘s and Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin‘s respective Hot 100 records it now appears Rihanna has another musical monarch in her sights – King of Rock & Roll Elvis Presley.

Indeed, the pop princess – whose Rih-lentless onslaught of chart-toppers has seen her lay waste to many-a-Billboard chart stat of the genre’s legends (see: Madonna, Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson, Whitney Houston, and more) – is set to to add Presley’s historic accomplishments to her list of casualties.

With the ascension of her Calvin Harris-crafted release, ‘This Is What You Came For,’ to the top 5, we see what Rih really came for is Elvis’s wig and record.  Details below:

Via Billboard:

Calvin Harris’ “This Is What You Came For,” featuring Rihanna, enters the Hot 100’s top five, rising 6-5.

Rihanna scores her 21st top five Hot 100 hit, tying Elvis Presley for the fifth-most top fives in the chart’s history, which dates to Aug. 4, 1958. (Notably, Presley’s career launched two years before the chart began.) Here’s a look at the acts with the most top five hits, as Rihanna breaks out of a tie with two icons, each with 20:

      And let me add that Elvis was FINE…now THAT’S white chocolate chile lol

    • ?+✈=? June 29, 2016

      I wonder what the top 5 records record is for top 5’s as a lead artist on a track??????????????????????????????

    • June 29, 2016

      love are hate her, at the end of the day the fact is Riri is a hit maker.

    • FOR REAL? June 30, 2016

      Michael Jackson didn’t need YouTube and Vevo to get his top 10 hits. Rihanna has scored a lot of “hits” lately that have reached the Top 5 or top 10 of the Hot 100 but failed to crack the Top 10 of Digital sales or airplay. Strange? No?

  2. truthtea June 29, 2016

    Music just dies a little more each day, each week, each month, each year! This is the kind of crap kids these days listen to. Untalented manufactured gimmicks easily breaking and tying records that talented legends actually had to work their a** off for!

    • Rihboy June 30, 2016

      Aww poor thing.

  3. Mark111 /.\ June 29, 2016

    Another week, another legend Rihanna takes a record from. Queen Of Pop!

    • BEYSTAN_ SINCE 1997 June 29, 2016

      Nobody can deny Rihanna rules the Billboard Hot 100! I will give her credit in that area!

      • The One’ June 29, 2016

        A slew of her hits are features , so she doesn’t rule anything really. She can’t sing nor dance, nor perform, so at the end of the day; she can dreak every record in the book and won’t be a legend.
        She’s relevant from image, fashion, and features, not talent!
        I hate when her delusional fans hype her up to be something she’s not. If she was out when “talent” was a precursor to a lucrative career, she wouldn’t been a flicker!

    • BEYSTAN_ SINCE 1997 June 29, 2016


    • Metzo June 29, 2016

      ROTFL because “Queen Of Pop” has me dying.

    • Molly June 29, 2016

  4. What you say boy! ? June 29, 2016

    Congrats let’s not tare anyone down. You’ll never know the pain they might go through behind the scenes. Anyway this girl be slaying these shoots better than most supermodels. And like someone said Elvis was fine in his early years! That fine tall drank of water could have gotten it honey ???

  5. FC/JC June 29, 2016

  6. © Centurion ::. June 29, 2016

    A Legend!

  7. Theman June 29, 2016

    Why are y’all so impressed by these weak stats. It is way easier for her to get hits. She’s tossing out so many singles. Streaming has helped her a great deal. A lot of that is free..

  8. Theman June 29, 2016

    She’s earned most of these hits with features too. That’s important to note.

    • Kayla C June 29, 2016

      probably a hating ass Beyoncé f¥g

    • Molly June 29, 2016

      Hater kiiiii

      • wrosy3 June 30, 2016

        The sad thing is these hives hate anything rih does
        that’s why Beyonce never acknowledge them

  9. IG : @mixedboy June 29, 2016

    Slay QUEEN Rihanna! To the haters, if it was so easy to get sooo many number ones, your faves would be stacking them up. Give props!

  10. Molly June 29, 2016

    Young legend…. She did this all before 30 #WhoMad?

    • The One’ June 29, 2016

      Legends have talent in front of their accolades.
      Rihanna will never be a legend nor a singer for that matter. It’s all image with this girl.

  11. HELLO FROM THE OUTSIDE June 29, 2016

    With a generic song like “This Is What You Came For” that no ones going to remember in 6 months. ? But congrats,I guess lol

  12. Selenator *Kills Them With Kindness* June 29, 2016

  13. jdek June 29, 2016

  14. Katy Perry > Rihanna June 29, 2016

    So what after all she’ll neither be a legend nor respected as the true legends are.

    • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy June 30, 2016

      Coming from a fan of the modern day Cyndi Loper….

  17. ROCK June 30, 2016

    She just hops on any hit in town.there is a danger of over exposure.add to the streaming and all,the so called hits will keep coming.the kii is that Katy perry And other new generic hit makers are coming to snatch them hit.she has just put out three albums.

  18. Samsung brought my albums June 30, 2016

    Has she even scanned double platinum yet?

  19. ow Reddish tran ivy blokz Need UK timely Ukuyi June 30, 2016

    Good for Riri and she only just featuring in Calvin h song

  20. Very Stylish Ordinary People June 30, 2016

    We are very proud of Rihanna.

    P.S. Please brandish this thigh high Rihanna + Manolo Blahnik boots.

  21. Mad-on-her June 30, 2016

    All of those hits listed by Madonna had her as the lead artist. And 90 per cent of them are still played and remembered to this day as classics. The world won’t be recall the likes of Work, TIWYCF and Needed Me in two years, never mind 20. It’s a shame as Rihanna does have classics too, but she dilutes them with her throw-everything-at-the-wall-and-see-what-sticks approach. I bet Rihanna’s already released more singles in her career than Madonna has in her three decade career.

  22. FASHION_ICON ~ Anti&Lemonade June 30, 2016

    I never thought at TGJ there is some clairvoyant…
    How do you know something will not be recall ?
    Everybody said this about umbrella but look now it’s a 2000’classic .
    She will never be a legend ? Ask older people about the like of Madonna and MC for ex at their prime…same thing were said about them but a look at them now.
    Rihanna was called a one hit wonder in 2005 and 11 years later she is still here with us .
    Lady Gaga was called in 2008 an icon/phenomenon and 8 years later she’s no where to be found.
    Adele was called the cheaper version of Amy Winehouse and un 2016 she is the best seller of album.
    So while none of you can not predict the future shut up
