It’s official!! “The Monster” just landed at the top of Billboard Hot 100 chart!! This means Rihanna ties Michael Jackson for the third-most leaders (13) in the Hot 100′s history!!!
Eminem and featured artist Rihanna roar 2-1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with their collaboration “The Monster,” which gives each artist a new slice of history in the chart’s 55-year archives. The song also shoots 4-1 on the Radio Songs airplay chart, where Rihanna adds more accolades.
With the coronation, the pair dethrones Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball,” which had returned to the top of the Hot 100 last week for a third cumulative week at No. 1.
Impressively, Rihanna ties Michael Jackson for the third-most leaders in the Hot 100′s history. Now with 13, she passes Madonna and the Supremes, each with 12. Upon the chart-topping ascent of “The Monster,” here’s an updated look at the acts with the most No. 1s dating to the Hot 100′s Aug. 4, 1958, inception:
20. the Beatles
18. Mariah Carey
13. Michael Jackson
12. the Supremes
11. Whitney Houston
10. Janet Jackson
10. Stevie Wonder
From her first week at No. 1 on the Hot 100 with “SOS” (May 13, 2006) through this week’s chart (dated Dec. 21, 2013), Rihanna’s registered 13 leaders in a span of seven years, seven months and eight days, marking the fastest run to the sum by a woman; Mariah Carey took a slightly longer seven-year, eight-month and 19-day route (from 1990′s “Vision of Love” through 1998′s “My All”). Only the Beatles reached 13 No. 1s more quickly: just three years and 17 days between 1964′s “I Want to Hold Your Hand” and 1967′s “Penny Lane.” (The other of the four acts with at least 13 leaders, Michael Jackson, spanned nearly 23 years between 1972′s “Ben,” his first solo No. 1 apart from the Jackson Five, and 1995′s “You Are Not Alone.”)
The song will get even more buzz soon as the video is coming in couple of days!
