For Rihanna, it adds another top 10 hit to her resume.

She only trails Madonna who has 38 and The Beatles who accrued 34 while Michael Jackson had 29 in his solo career. It's also Rihanna's third-highest debut out of 60 entries on the Hot 100 chart following her version "Love the Way You Lie" featuring Eminem in 2010 which opened at No. 2. Following was 2013's "Monster" by Eminem featuring the hitmaker and that song entered at No. 3.
