Rihanna Breaks Beatles Chart Record

(Radio.com) Rihanna has broken a record set by the Beatles after she earned her ninth week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart this week with her current single "Work," capturing the record from the Fab Four for the second-most number of weeks on top of the chart.

The pop star now has a total of 60 weeks at No. 1, including her songs and guest appearances. Rihanna remains behind Mariah Carey, who has 79 weeks of career number ones; the Beatles sit behind Rihanna with 59 weeks.

Rihanna isn't the only artist making history this week on the charts. Justin Bieber broke his own longevity record with "Love Yourself." The song has spent 22 weeks in Billboard Hot 100 Top 10. This bests his previous record for "Sorry," which spent 21 consecutive weeks in the Top 10 earlier this year. Read more here.
