- Rihanna was spotted in New York City on November 7th. Check out a short video of her arriving at her hotel at 1 am.
- Rihanna scored her 25th Top 10 hit in the U.S as ‘The Monster’ debuted at #3 this week. Rihanna tallies her 25th top 10, matching the sum totaled by Elvis Presley.Thus, “The Monster” is proving aptly titled, as its debut at No. 3 has surfaced narratives between Eminem and the Beatles and Rihanna and the King of Rock and Roll.Not only does Rihanna log her milestone 25th Hot 100 top 10, but she also earns the honor of being the fastest among women, besting Madonna by four months. “The Monster” ranks in the top tier just eight years and four months after her first such hit, “Pon De Replay,” in 2005.
Rihanna tallies her 25th top 10 the second-most quickly among all acts. The Beatles needed just four years between 1964’s “I Want to Hold Your Hand” — one of the titles that gave the Fab Four a record six songs in the top 20 simultaneously that year — and 1968’s “Lady Madonna” (just to tie together the Beatles and Madonna a little more).
“The Monster” is additionally Rihanna’s 45th Hot 100 entry, tying her with the output of her Island Def Jam labelmate Carey.
