Rihanna is one of the world's most successful artists and at such a young age. She's topping charts across the board and inching her way to overthrowing previous records. Remixes of songs are common rather official or third party created and they allow artists to have a slew of No. 1 hits on the Dance Club Play Songs chart even if the song is originally a ballad. Rihanna has moved up into second place for the most No. 1 songs on the tally and is quickly approaching the overall record currently held by Madonna. The latest No. 1 can be seen on the July 4 update.
The Barbadian singer's latest song "Pose" has crowned the dance chart and becomes her 30th No. 1. Overall, it's her third No. 1 of the year after the mainstream hit "Love on the Brain" in January and "Sex with Me" in April. The track is her sixth No. 1 from 2016's Anti after "Work," "Kiss It Better," "Needed Me," the former mentioned tracks, and "This Is What You Came For," a track by Calvin Harris that she is featured on.
Rihanna is picking up steam on the dance chart as she's accrued seven No. 1 songs in two years since Madonna's "B***h I'm Madonna" became her 46th chart topper in 2015. Madonna holds the record for most No. 1 dance songs with 46 total.
It's not the only record she's nearing held by Madonna. Just in the previous tracking week, Rihanna landed her 31st top 10 track on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart with "Wild Thoughts." The DJ Khaled track in which she is featured debuted at No. 4. In the latest tracking week which updated on July 4, the song moves up to No. 3. Madonna has 38 total since her career began in the 1980s.
