Rihanna Surpasses Janet Jackson's Billboard Record

Published August 6, 2013

Rihanna's career continues to shock fans. This time the singer earned her 20th No. 1 on Billboard's Dance/Club Play chart, surpassing none other than Janet Jackson for the most singles at the top of the chart from an R&B/pop artist.

Previously, Jackson held the spot with 19 second place overall behind Dance/Club queen Madonna, who has 43 No. 1s.

Rih Rih began her ascent to 20 with her debut, "Pon De Replay." Her current single, "Right Now," featuring David Guetta, reached No. 1 in its 16th week on the charts (after opening at No. 50). The climb to the top spot was assisted by official remixes from electro artists like the Netherands' Sick Individuals and DJ Ralphi Rosario, who got his start in Chicago's house scene.

Her other singles to peak at No. 1 on the Dance/Club Play chart include "We Found Love," featuring Calvin Harris, "Only Girl (In the World)" and "Umbrella," featuring Jay Z.
