Rihanna Defeats The Beatles Billboard Record, Catching Up To Mariah Carey In Second Place with “Work”

Posted April 18, 2016


Just days ago, I reported that Rihanna had clocked a major feat with her hit single “Work” and now the singer has surpassed that, just one week later.

Last week the Drake assisted single registered its 8th week at #1 on Billboard– seeing her tie with The Beatles to have the second most accumulated at #1 on the chart (59 total weeks).

As of this week ‘Work’ has now hit 60 overall weeks and she has taking second place beating out The Beatles. The only other person left in the top spot is Mariah Carey, who still has yet to be undefeated at 79 weeks. Check out the official tally below as it stands this week.
