The superstar scores her 12th Hot 100 No. 1, while the Lumineers' folk-rock 'Ho Hey' completes a lengthy journey to the top 10.



As previously reported, Rihanna's "Diamonds" rises 2-1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song replaces Maroon 5's "One More Night" (1-2) atop the list after a nine-week reign.

With her 12th Hot 100 topper, Rihanna ascends higher into rarefied historical chart air, as she ties Madonna and the Supremes for the fourth-most leaders in the ranking's 54-year history. Only the Beatles (20), Mariah Carey (18) and Michael Jackson (13) have sent more titles to the top.

There's a shiny new No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, as Rihanna's "Diamonds" rises 2-1. The song dethrones Maroon 5's "One More Night" (1-2) after a nine-week reign.

With her 12th Hot 100 topper, Rihanna ties Madonna and the Supremes for the fourth-most leaders in the chart's 54-year history. (The Supremes' sum does not include Diana Ross' six solo No. 1s.) Only the Beatles (20), Mariah Carey (18) and Michael Jackson (13; also not counting the Jackson 5's four No. 1s) have sent more titles to the top of the Hot 100.

STOCKHOLM, Sweden — It's so weird how 48 hours ago feels like it happened to someone else. Mexico City is a blur. Toronto, and the wee, indie movie theater-ish venue with its punctual crowd and assigned seating, is a distant memory. We've been calling it Stockholm Syndrome because it's day three of Rihanna's 777 Tour and we've given ourselves fully to the bizarro circumstance of being on tour with one of the most beloved pop stars in the world.

The Guardian
You don't even have to listen to Rihanna's seventh album to set alarm bells ringing. You merely have to look at its track listing. There, sandwiched between a collaboration with singer Mikky Ekko called Stay and the intriguingly titled Love Without Tragedy/Mother Mary comes track 10: Nobody's Business (feat. Chris Brown). Uh-oh.

The first two singles from RIHANNA's Platinum album LOUD -- "Only Girl (In The World)" and "What’s My Name" -- hit #1 on the BILLBOARD Hot 100, and now it's the third in a row, with "S&M" topping the charts this week.

"RIHANNA's 10th #1 single is a monumental accomplishment and a testament to her incredible artistry," said ISLAND DEF JAM MUSIC GROUP Pres./COO STEVE BARTELS. "This was a truly collaborative and creative effort, spearheaded by RIHANNA's tireless work and aided in no small part by the incredible BRITNEY SPEARS and her team. I am extremely proud of RIHANNA, her ongoing dominance on the charts, and the entire IDJ team who worked so diligently to bring this one home."

In 2010, RIHANNA became the first female artist of the past decade to chart six #1s on the Hot 100 when "Rude Boy" went to the top. "Only Girl" pushed RIHANNA in the lead for most #1s (9) since 2000. She was previously tied with USHER at 8 #1s. [SOURCE]

'It's very strange: Britney never does features,' Rihanna explains.



What happens when the Femme Fatale herself teams up with one of the Loudest singers in the game? Well, you get the sexy, saucy remix of Rihanna's "S&M" featuring Britney Spears, which dropped Monday (April 11).

The same day the track became available for public consumption, Rihanna called into New York radio station Z-100 to talk about getting the pop star on the track. "At first, we didn't know what the song was going to do because of the lyrics, but it became really big on radio and it's #1 at Pop this week. In order to do a remix, it had to be major," she explained. "I asked my fans last week who they wanted me to collaborate with, and Britney was one of the most popular names."

(CBS) Turns out Rihanna really meant what she was singing in her recent hit single "S&M." While speaking candidly to Rolling Stone magazine, the 23-year-old pop star has revealed some intimate details of her bedroom behavior.

"I like to take charge, but I love to be submissive," she says. "Being submissive in the bedroom is really fun. You get to be a little lady, to have somebody be macho and in charge. That's sexy to me." She adds, "I work a lot, and I have to make a lot of executive decisions, so when it comes to being intimate, I like to feel like I'm somebody's girl. I like to keep it spontaneous. Sometimes whips and chains can be overly planned - you gotta stop, get the whip from the drawer downstairs. I'd rather have him use his hands."
