Rihanna Ties Michael Jackson’s Hot 100 Record, Thanks To Eminem’s “The Monster”

Well, Rihanna‘s really startin’ somethin’ now (ba-ziiiiiing!). Thanks to her feature on Eminem‘s second Marshall Mathers LP 2 single “The Monster,” which bumps Miley Cyrus‘ “Wrecking Ball” off the top of the Hot 100 this week, the Barbadian songbird has now tied Michael Jackson‘s string of 13 #1 singles in the US, according to Billboard. This puts MJ and RiRi behind only The Beatles (20) and Mariah Carey (18) as far as the most #1s, and it has them now just ahead of Madonna and The Supremes (both have 12).

Of course, it should be noted that 12 of Michael Jackson’s #1s were billed to the King Of Pop alone (only “Say Say Say” was a pair-up, with Paul MCartney). Three of Rihanna’s chart-topping singles are features: T.I.‘s “Live Your Life,” Eminem‘s “Love The Way You Lie” and, now, “The Monster.”

And if we want to get really technical, Michael Jackson also hit #1 as part of the USA For Africa lineup, with 1985′s “We Are The World,” a song he co-wrote and features on vocally. Likewise, four Jackson 5 singles featuring Michael on lead vocals peaked at #1 in the 1970s: “I Want You Back,” “ABC,” “The Love You Save” and “I’ll Be There.”

As for Eminem, “The Monster” is his fifth #1, following “Lose Yourself,” “Crack A Bottle,” “Not Afraid” and “Love The Way You Lie.” He now ties Diddy and Ludacris as the rappers with the most chart-topping singles on the Hot 100.
