Rihanna has reached another level of success in her already successful career that includes her beauty line and apparel endeavours. According to Billboard, the Anti singer has officially landed her 50th Top 40 single thanks to her assist on N.E.R.D’s “Lemon.”
The only female artist that is ahead of the Barbadian singer is Taylor Swift who has 55 Top 40 singles. Rihanna is tied with The Beatles and has surpassed Madonna who has 40. Check out the list below.
This news comes just a couple weeks after it was announced that her eighth studio album, Anti, completed 100 weeks on the Billboard 200 charts. The album was released exclusively on Tidal in January 2016 where it landed at #27 on the Billboard 200 charts. Once it was globally released, it jumped to the top spot. “Needed Me,” “Love On The Brain,” “Work” and “Kiss It Better” kept her placement for such a long duration. Anti has since been certified double platinum by the R.I.A.A.
Next on Rihanna’s docket for her musical career will be her upcoming performance at the 60th annual Grammy Awards on January 28th. Riri will be performing alongside Bryson Tiller and DJ Khaled giving a live rendition of their hottest track “Wild Thoughts.”
