Rihanna Surpasses Beatles on Hot 100 Chart


Robbie Daw, writing for Idolator:

Rihanna has now spent more weeks at #1 on the main singles chart than the Beatles. Rihanna’s 14 chart-topping songs have racked up 60 weeks at the upper-most spot on the Hot 100, though it took nine years and 11 months do so. (RiRi’s first #1 was “SOS,” which hit the top in May 2006.) The Beatles amassed 20 chart-topping singles on the Hot 100 over a six year and four month period, between February 1964 and June 1970 — all for a cumulative 59 weeks at #1.
