Rihanna Now Has More No. 1 Singles Than Michael Jackson

That Rihanna reign just won’t let up.

1. Rihanna is living her best life. She finally released her visual for her new music video “Work,” and it was just announced that the single has become the star’s 14th No. 1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100.

3. Previously, both Jackson and Rihanna were tied at 13. She’s already surpassed the record held by artists like Janet Jackson (10 No. 1’s) and Whitney Houston (11 No. 1’s).

4. This also means it’s very likely Rihanna could break the record held by Mariah Carey, who has a grand total of 18 No. 1 hits, more than any solo artist in history.
