Rihanna Just Surpassed The Beatles’s Billboard Hot 100 Record

“Work” puts the singer over the edge for time spent at number one.

April 19, 2016

Rihanna has now logged more weeks in total at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart than The Beatles, reports the BBC. Guess now's the perfect time for that documentary.


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?”
