As previously reported, Rihanna’s “Work,” the lead single from her new album Anti, rockets onto the Billboard Hot 100 (dated Feb. 13) at No. 9, instantly becoming the superstar’s 27th top 10. With the song’s arrival, she ties Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson and Elton John for the fifth-most top 10s in the Hot 100’s history.

The only artists with more top 10s than that quartet since the Hot 100 originated with the chart dated Aug. 4, 1958? Madonna (38), the Beatles (34), Michael Jackson (29) and Stevie Wonder (28). (Notably, Elvis Presley boasts 25 Hot 100 top 10s, but his career predated the chart by two years; had the chart existed earlier, his top 10 count would be higher.)

Especially impressive, Rihanna has reached 27 Hot 100 top 10s faster than any other soloist. Dating from an artist’s first week on the Hot 100 to the frame in which it notched its 27th top 10, only one act has reached the sum more quickly: the Beatles tallied their 27th top 10 (1969’s “Get Back,” with Billy Preston) a mere five years, three months and three weeks after their 1964 Hot 100 debut with “I Want to Hold Your Hand” (their first Hot 100 charted title, top 10 and No. 1).

Runner-up Rihanna needed just 10 years and eight months between her first Hot 100 hit, and first top 10, 2005’s No. 2-peaking “Pon De Replay,” and “Work” (which features Drake). Madonna now ranks third with a still-speedy 11-year, two-month and two-week span between “Holiday,” her first Hot 100 entry (which reached No. 16 in 1984), and her 27th, “Take a Bow,” which became her longest-leading No. 1 (seven weeks) in 1995. (And, of course, both Madonna and Rihanna have crowned the Hot 100 with songs titled “Take a Bow.”)
