Rihanna Ties Madonna For Most #1 Singles

'Diamonds' goes to #1 on the Hot 100

"Diamonds," the first single off her brand-new Unapologetic album,hit  #1 on  Billboard Hot 100, giving Rihanna her 12th chart-topping single, a mark that ties her with Madonna and the Supremes for the fourth-most #1s in the 54-year history of the chart.

According to Billboard, Rihanna now trails only the Beatles (20 #1s), Mariah Carey (18) and Michael Jackson (13 solo #1s) for the most Hot 100 chart toppers of all time, and, given that she's just 24 — and seemingly releases a new album every year — well, we think she's got a pretty realistic shot at overtaking all of them.
