Rihanna Breaks Records as ‘S&M’ Grabs Top Spot on Hot 100


Rihanna’s “S&M” flies 2-1 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week and earns Ri a pair of records in the process.

“S&M” marks the singer’s 10th No. 1 on the Hot 100 which is an accomplishment in itself, but that’s not actually the record-breaker here. The first incredible achievement comes in that Rihanna is the youngest singer to achieve the feat at 23 years old. The next is the amount of time in which she did it. Rihanna logs the shortest span between a solo artist’s first and 10th No. 1s – a stretch of four years, 11 months and two weeks. (Her 1st, “SOS” reached the top in 2006.) 

Rihanna’s track displaces her real-life best friend, Katy Perry’s “E.T.,” featuring Kanye West (No. 2), after three weeks atop the Hot 100.

The rest of the top 10:

  • No. 3 – Black Eyed Peas’ “Just Can’t Get Enough”
  • No. 4 – Jeremih’s “Down on Me” ft 50 Cent
  • No. 5 – Cee Lo Green’s “F**k You (Forget You)”
  • No. 6 – Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep”
  • No. 7 – Chris Brown’s “Look at Me Now” ft Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes
  • No. 8 – Jennifer Lopez’s “On the Floor” ft Pitbull
  • No. 9 – Britney Spears’ “Till the World Ends”
  • No. 10 – Lady Gaga’s “Judas”

What do y’all think about this week’s Hot 100?
