Rihanna Makes Hot 100 History With ‘Believe It’

Published: Tuesday 7th Apr 2020 by Rashad

As Rihanna fans, affectionately called #TheNavy, impatiently wait for new music from the diva, they’re eating up anything she’s attached to in the process.  Case in point? Her feature on PartyNextDoor‘s ‘Believe It.’

The song, which serves as the latest single from his third studio album, ‘PARTYMOBILE’ (released March 27), is the first original material released by Rih since her guest spot on N.E.R.D‘s moderate 2017 hit, ‘Lemon.’

Making an impressive #23 debut on this week’s Hot 100, ‘Believe’s arrival’ marks the end of her longest break ever from the chart as she’s had a top 40 hit in every year since her 2005 debut up to 2017.  Of course, leave it to the Grammy winner-turned-fashion-icon to return in major fashion.

Look inside to see what historic achievement ‘Believe’ brings with it:

With ‘Believe It’ opening at #23 on the refreshed Hot 100, Rih becomes the sixth female act to chart a top 40 hit in each of the last three decades (2000’s, 2010’s, 2020’s).  As of time reported, the exclusive club only includes Mariah Carey, Lady Gaga, Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift, and Demi Lovato.

Coming as the 62nd Hot 100 entry of her career (51st top 40 hit), she’s surpassed the career stats of her mentor, JAY-Z, and The Beatles to enter a three-way tie with Eminem and ‘Glee’ for 8th place on the all-time list.

      • Nicky April 7, 2020

        She has a body of work out Bird Brain.

        Did you graduate middle school? You can’t be THIS stupid.

        Ignore Camicky The Clown and her dumb fans.

        The Clown has never achieved a solo hit. She needed Kane Brown to help. Let that sink in.

      • Clarks0o0ñ April 7, 2020

        Did I hit a nerve?
        ????

        Normani also has a body of work (EP) just like megan thee stallion and tones and I
        She released a 2 song ep.
        She has many singles also
        Waves
        Check list
        Slow down
        Motivation
        Diamonds
        Love lies
        DWAS
        the song she did with quavo
        Bad to u with Arianna
        Motivation remix with 21 savage

        Normani has more songs than tones and I but tones and I is on the chart right now
        Normani has no excuse.

        The bìtch has seen the inside of the billboard hot 100 since November2019, let that sink in.
