Pour It Up.

AMA Icon Award.
ihanna was the big star of the 2013 American Music Awards. She was given the very first AMA Icon Award and performed "Diamonds," one of her 12 Hot 100 No 1s. She also won the Soul/R&B Female Artist Award.
Perhaps lost in yesterday’s bevy of chart feats by Eminem, who this week becomes the first lead artist to land four concurrent top 20 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 since the Beatles in 1964, is that Rihanna tallies her 25th top 10, matching the sum totaled by Elvis Presley.
Thus, “The Monster” is proving aptly titled, as its debut at No. 3 has surfaced narratives between Eminem and the Beatles and Rihanna and the King of Rock and Roll.
Upon the collaboration’s bow, here’s an updated look at the acts with the most Hot 100 top 10s.
In one of the most exciting chart battles of 2013, One Direction have been denied their fourth UK Number 1 single by Eminem and Rihanna.
Despite being released on Tuesday, and having a 48 hour disadvantage on the rest of this week’s new singles, Eminem and Rihanna’s “The Monster” has romped ahead of Harry, Zayn, Niall, Liam and Louis, who had been leading the race all week with their new single, “Story Of My Life”.
Taken from Eminem’s forthcoming eighth studio album, “The Marshall Mathers LP 2″ (out tomorrow), “The Monster” is both the US rapper’s and Rihanna’s eighth Number 1 UK single.
The last time the pair released a single together was 2010’s “Love The Way You Lie”, which peaked at Number 2 on the Official Singles Chart. It has gone on to become one of the UK’s biggest selling singles of all-time, with more than 1.15 million copies sold.
Eminem last topped the Official Singles Chart almost seven years ago featuring on Akon’s Smack That, while Rihanna now joins Elvis Presley and The Beatles in the Official Chart history books as just one of three acts to have scored seven Number 1 singles over seven consecutive years.
RiRi will be featured in the 2014 edition of the Guinness World Book of Records:
R ‘n’ B sensation Rihanna took fans on a ‘detour’ from 8 Mile Road, dethroning the previous social media king, Detroit rapper Eminem, and taking the title of “Most “Liked” Person on Facebook” with 70,738,549 “Likes” on May 16, 2013 (her current count stands at 74,769,237).
Rihanna was previously featured in the book in 2013, when she became the best-selling digital artist (US), selling an incredible 47.57 million digital tracks in the United States during her career; in 2012, being first woman to have had number one singles in the United Kingdom for five consecutive years from 2007-2011; and in 2010, when she was named the best selling download female artist in the UK.

Rihanna breaks a tie with Katy Perry, who’s notched nine No. 1s since her 2008 arrival; also impressively, Rihanna has rung up her No. 1 sum since just 2006, when “SOS,” her first leader, reached the summit. She’d last led with “We Found Love,” featuring Calvin Harris, for eight weeks, marking her longest command, in late 2011/early 2012.
The record for most No. 1s is the latest for Rihanna on Pop Songs. She previously established the marks for most entries (35) and top 10s (23) dating to the ranking’s Oct. 3, 1992, launch.
“Stay” also charges 11-7 on Adult Pop Songs, becoming her third top 10 on the list, and debuts at No. 30 on Adult Contemporary. (It’s reached No. 3 on the all-format airplay/sales/streaming-fueled Billboard Hot 100.)
Also notably, “Stay” is only the second piano-and-vocal-only No. 1 of the 259 songs to have ruled Pop Songs.

Thanks to “You Da One“, the second single off of Rihanna’s “Talk That Talk” album, RiRi is now the third artist with most No. 1 singles on Billboard’s Dance/Club Play Songs — behind Madonna (40) and Janet Jackson (19) only.
“You Da One” has peaked at #14 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Rihanna’s former 10-week Hot 100 leader “We Found Love,” featuring Calvin Harris, dips 2-3 although it spends an 11th frame at No. 1 on Radio Songs (145 million, down 3%). “We Found Love” becomes the longest-leading song on Radio Songs since Alicia Keys’ “No One” reigned for 14 weeks in 2007-08 and is one of just 10 tracks by solo women to rack as many as 11 weeks at the summit in the all-format airplay chart’s 21-year history.
