Rihanna Beats Janet Jackson's Record on Billboard Dance/Play Chart
Looks like there's some competition on the Billboard charts

 

  Bad girl Rihanna continously suprises us with her edgy fashion, candid photographs, and daring videos, but this time, she has shocked us with something we never saw coming!  The pop princess has managed to surpass five-time Grammy award winning legend, Janet Jackson's Billboard Record for the most singles at the top of the chart for an R&B/pop artist. The bad girl also managed to snatch the title of second-most No. 1s ever on the Billboard Dance/Club Play chart from Jackson, with her current hit, and 20th No.1 single, "Right Now," featuring David Guetta. The hit track places her behind Madonna who’s in first place on the Billboard chart with 43 No.1 singles. 

RiRi is far from conquering Janet Jackson's legendary status, but she could be on her way to pulling a close second.  The “Diamonds” singer has been able to produce an insane amount of No.1 hits in only 8 years. Her chart topping career began in 2005, with the release of her debut track, “Pon de Replay," under a still innocent image. Years later, and after a 'good girl gone bad,’ one thing remains constant--her ability to create highly successful tracks. Which is the reason this news story is even able to be written. And if RiRi continues on this route, she may end up giving the "material girl"  a run for her money.
