Rihanna Second Only to Madonna for No.1 Dance Hits

Rihanna reaches a huge milestone becoming second only to Madonna as the pop star with the most No.1 Dance hits.
Rihanna looks like she's ready to break more records, as she celebrates her 20th No. 1 on the US Hot Dance Club chart, putting her in second behind Madonna for the most dance hits.
The Bajan singer swooped in front of Janet Jackson's total of 19, with her single Right Now featuring David Guetta, but is still significantly behind Madonna's record of 43 on the chart compiled by Billboard.
However, Rihanna has already achieved more top ten singles in the shortest amount of time on the Billboard 100 than any other artist (taking that title from Madge herself) so it shouldn't be long before the Diamonds singer does it again.
Rihanna's first single to feature on the chart was her debut Pon De Replay on October 8, 2005, but on Thursday, Right Now will rise to the number one spot after 16 weeks on the US Hot Dance Club Play Songs playlist.
It ties for the longest climb to No. 1 of the 21st century with another of her own tracks, Where Have You Been, released in June 9, 2012, and Blaze Presents U.D.A.U.F.L. featuring Barbara Tucker's 2005 single Most Precious Love.
In the current Billboard 100 chart, Rihanna has achieved similar success, matching The Supremes and Madonna's 12 number one singles with Diamonds back in November 2012, putting her in fifth place behind Michael Jackson's 13, Elvis Presley's 17 No. 1s, Mariah Carey's 18 chart toppers and The Beatles, who have secured 20 singles at the top of the chart.

No one cares. I just wish she would sit down for two seconds. I'm sick to death of seeing her face and hearing her name.
