Once again, Rihanna makes history. This time around, the starlet of Def Jam is making history for her string of hits. Not too many artists have enjoyed runs the way Rihanna has. She has been more successful than Beyonce and other major stars in her six year run.

In 2006, Rihanna proved she was not a one hit wonder when she released "S.O.S." The song became her first number one hit on the Billboard Hot 100. Five years later, Rihanna is still topping the charts. Currently, Rihanna is out promoting her fifth studio album, Loud.

Loud is home to a couple of chart-topping Rihanna singles, including her latest, "S&M." The "S&M" single is Rihanna's tenth number one single. "S&M" has helped Rihanna become a part of history. Joining the likes of Jay-Z, Rihanna now shares a record with The Beatles. Jay-Z's record is for most number one albums, Rihanna's is for most number one singles in such a short span.

Her record of ten number one singles in five years is tied with The Beatles for the most in history.
