Rihanna Has More Billboard Hits Than JAY-Z & The Beatles

Rihanna has surpassed JAY-Z and The Beatles with her 51 Billboard Top 40 hit. She reached the milestone thanks to her feature on PARTYNEXTDOOR’s “Believe It.”

“Believe It,” which can be found on PARTY’s new album, PARTYMOBILE, entered the Billboard Hot 100 at number 23 on the chart. The track accounts for Rihanna’s first feature in nearly four years. With it, she becomes the tenth artist in history to have more than 50 Top 40 singles. Continuing an impressive run, RiRi has now charted on the Hot 100 in each of the past three decades.

Rihanna’s 51 Billboard Top 40 hit comes as she has been noticeably absent from the music scene for the most part, seemingly focusing on her burgeoning Fenty empire, which spans beauty, apparel, sneakers, and lingerie. Still, fans are eagerly awaiting that new album, R9. While she has yet reveal a release date, we do know the project will be reggae-inspired.
