Rihanna Scores Record Eighth No. 1 From ‘ANTI’ on Dance Club Songs Chart

Published

Rihanna becomes the first act to score as many as eight No. 1s from one album in the history of Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart, as “Consideration,” featuring SZA, rises 2-1 on the list dated Feb. 24. The song is the unprecedented eighth topper on the tally from Rihanna’s 2016 album, ANTI.

“Consideration,” Rihanna’s first Dance Club Songs No. 1 since “Desperado” in October, also grants SZA her first No. 1 on the ranking.

The run of eight Dance Club Songs No. 1s from ANTI began on April 23, 2016, with the coronation of “Work,” featuring Drake. During the set’s span of leaders, she’s added two No. 1s not on the set: “This Is What You Came For,” by Calvin Harris featuring Rihanna, which posted a two-week reign on July 9 and July 16, 2016, and “Wild Thoughts,” by DJ Khaled featuring Rihanna and Bryson Tiller, which topped the Aug. 26, 2017-dated chart.

With “Consideration,” Rihanna breaks the record for most No. 1 songs from a single album on Dance Club Songs. Katy Perry previously held the mark, as she scored seven leaders from Teenage Dream in 2010-12.

N.E.R.D. and Rihanna’s “Lemon” darts 4-1 on Billboard’s Rhythmic Songs airplay chart (dated Feb. 10) to command the list for the first time. The collaboration leaps to the top with an 8 percent hike in plays in the week ending Feb. 4, according to Nielsen Music.

With “Lemon,” N.E.R.D. squeezes out its first trip to the summit with its first entry on the chart.

Rihanna logs her 17th No. 1 on Rhythmic Songs, extending her mark for the most among women and pulling within two chart-toppers of tying Drake’s record of 19. (Notably, Drake could challenge for another No. 1 soon, as “God’s Plan” races 16-12 with a mighty 57 percent gain in plays for the week and takes the Greatest Gainer prize.)

Here’s a look at the acts with the most No. 1s on Rhythmic Songs since the list’s inception on Oct. 3, 1992:
