Rihanna received an early Christmas present this year. The pop superstar’s dance smash “We Found Love” has become her biggest hit yet, remaining at No. 1 for an eighth consecutive week on the singles chart.
The Calvin Harris production surpasses 2007’s “Umbrella” and her collaboration with Eminem, “Love the Way You Lie,” which both topped the Billboard Hot 100 for seven weeks straight.
Rihanna kicked off the U.S. promo for her new album Talk That Talk with an electrifying performance on Thursday’s “X Factor” results show. Fresh off her tour overseas, the pop diva delivered her No. 1 single “We Found Love” for the first time on television.
Rihanna reigns atop the Billboard Hot 100 once again. The pop star has earned her 11th No. 1 single with “We Found Love.”
The Calvin Harris-produced track rises 2-1 on the chart this week based on airplay and digital sales. The song, which serves as the first single from Rihanna’s sixth album Talk That Talk (Nov. 21), registered 243,000 downloads for the week.
According to Billboard, the Barbados singer becomes the seventh artist in the Hot 100’s 53-year history to score 11 No. 1s, joining the Beatles (20), Mariah Carey (18), Michael Jackson (13), Madonna (12), the Supremes (12), and Whitney Houston (11). She surpasses Janet Jackson and Stevie Wonder, who each have 10 No. 1s.
Rihanna is ready to have everyone talking once again. The pop superstar has revealed the title of her next album.
The sixth album from Rihanna will be called Talk That Talk, she announced via Facebook. The follow-up to last year’s LOUD features the Calvin Harris-produced single “We Found Love,” and will arrive on November 21.
