Rihanna can add the title to her ever-increasing list of chart accolades. Late last year, she leapt past Janet Jackson and Stevie Wonder on the list of artists with the most number one singles when We Found Love topped the charts, becoming her 11th number one and tying her with Whitney Houston. Only the Supremes, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley and the Beatles have more chart-toppers.

It took her six years and four months to reach that total, five less than it took Madonna. You go, RiRi!
