She can thank her smash single “Work,” which has spent nine weeks at the top of the chart and handed her a career total of 60 weeks at the peak, which is one more week than The Beatles. This tally includes songs Rihanna performed as a featured artist on, like T.I.'s “Live Your Life.” and Eminem's “Monster” and “Love The Way You Lie.” But the reigning champ is still Mariah Carey, who has spent a whopping 79 weeks at number one.
If you're mad that these singers have bested the Liverpool lads, well, what do you want? “Fishy Playground?”
