Rihanna rules Billboard's Dance Club Songs chart (dated July 15) for a milestone 30th time, as "Pose" rises 2-1. The track was remixed by Alex Acosta, Country Club Martini Crew and The Perry Twins, among others.

Rihanna moves closer to Madonna, who has racked up 46 leaders, for the most No. 1s in the chart's 40-plus-year history. Rihanna is also gaining fast; since Madonna's most recent No. 1, "B**** I'm Madonna," on Aug. 15, 2015, Rihanna has reached the top seven times, the most of all acts; Disclosure trails with four leaders in that span.

Last year, Rihanna was honored as the No. 3 Dance Club Artist in Billboard's Greatest of All Time recap of the Dance Club Songs chart's first 40 years.

"Pose" is Rihanna's third topper of 2017, the most of all acts, following "Love on the Brain" (Jan. 21) and "Sex With Me" (April 8). Dua Lipa is the only other artist with multiple No. 1s thus far this year (two).

"Pose" is also the sixth leader from Rihanna's album ANTI, following "Work" (featuring Drake, April 23, 2016); "Kiss It Better" (Aug. 6, 2016); "Needed Me" (Aug. 20, 2016); "Love on the Brain"; and "Sex With Me." (During that run, she also reigned as featured on Calvin Harris' "This Is What You Came For," which logged a rare two-week reign on its way to becoming the chart's No. 1 song of 2016.)

Rihanna is the first act to achieve as many as six No. 1s from an album since Katy Perry landed seven from the original edition of Teenage Dream in 2010-12: "California Gurls," the title cut, "Peacock," "Firework," "E.T.," "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" and "The One That Got Away." Also in that era, two more toppers, "Part Of Me" and "Wide Awake," were released from the set's 2012 re-release, Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection.

Dating to the Dance Club Songs chart's Aug. 28, 1976, inception as a national survey, here's an updated look at the acts with the most No. 1s:

46. Madonna
30. Rihanna
22. Beyonce
19. Janet Jackson
17. Mariah Carey
17. Katy Perry
16. Kristine W
16. Jennifer Lopez
15. Donna Summer
14. Dave Aude
14. Enrique Iglesias
14. Lady Gaga
14. Pitbull
