Rihanna has broken a US chart record with her latest single. The singer’s new track ‘We Found Love’ has climbed to number nine on this week’s US Hot 100 chart, making it her 20th Top 10 hit.
Rihanna has now become the fastest solo artist in music history to achieve 20 Top 10 singles on the Billboard chart.
The 23-year-old’s first Top 10 hit was ‘Pon De Replay’ in June 2005, which peaked at number two on the Hot 100 chart, reports Billboard. With ‘We Found Love’ entering the Top 10 this week, Rihanna has achieved the feat in just six years and four months, breaking a record previously held by Madonna.
Madonna first entered the US Top 10 with ‘Lucky Star’ in 1984, with her 20th hit being ‘Hanky Panky’ in July 1990.
The total time it took the pop icon to achieve the chart milestone is recorded at six years and nine months, five months longer than Rihanna. Rihanna is currently in the UK as part of her ‘Loud’ world tour and took the London underground to her opening gig on Wednesday.
The Bajan star recently announced that her sixth studio album will be titled Talk That Talk.
