Rihanna Achieves 22nd Top 5 Hot 100 Hit

Riri overtakes Elvis

Rihanna has achieved her 22nd top five hit on Billboards Hot 100.

The singers latest single ‘Love On The Brain’, from her most recent album ‘Anti’, has moved up the charts this week from 6 to 5.

This means that Rihanna breaks out of her fifth-place tie with King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Elvis Presley.

The only other artists who can boast more top five Hot 100 hits than Rihanna include The Beatles (29), Madonna (28), Mariah Carey (26) and Janet Jackson (24).
