URBAN ISLANDZ NEWS: Barbadian R&B/Pop star Rihanna has shattered the charts with her record breaking 10th number one single S&M.
The S&M remix featuring pop star Britney Spears moved one place up from number 2 to 1 this week. Making it Rihanna’s 10th number one of the charts.
Rihanna earns 10 No. 1s on the Hot 100 in the shortest span for a solo artist since first debuting atop the chart with “SOS” four years, 11 months ago.
At 23 years old, she also becomes the youngest artist to achieve 10 No. 1s on the Hot 100, besting labelmate Mariah Carey who was 25 at the time. RiRi tallied her No. 1s faster than Carey.
