Yesterday marked a year since Rihanna’s most anticipated album ANTI released. We celebrated the #ANTiversary by sharing the best moments from the era and finished the day by listening to the entire album together. Rihanna shared some photos herself, from the making of ANTI and added a very emotional caption:

Looking back to 1 year ago…. I released my most anticipated album to date #ANTi ….When I started making this album I never would have imagined how much of a challenge the process would be. I was evolving in the midst of making a body of art that was supposed to reflect who I was in that moment, yet it was the very answer I didn’t have! I was numb for a while…numb to all the bullshit and numb to all the good shit. But I was determined not to settle for what everybody thought this should be, or when they thought it should come, or how! I stuck to it until I felt something again!

And I remember like it was yesterday, the night it happened! We rented a house in Malibu for a couple months and did MUSIC! Every room, every couch, every corner, there were musicians everywhere, the whole Fenty Corp, the best times! 1 night we vibing, TyTy made a comment, and I got super sensitive, lolol! Then I thought “hold up, did I just feel a way?? Did I just FEEL???!!” It was in that moment that I trusted myself, trusted my ear, trusted my gut, trusted the way that my music made me FEEL!!! I had no idea how it would be received, neither was that something I considered. I just wanted to make a body of work that felt right!

And to the most beautiful, loyal fans that anyone would kill to have on their team, you were right there by my side waiting (im)patiently the entire time! To have the support of so many, with the enthusiasm that we shared for Anti felt like such a reward! I cannot thank you enough for loving her the way you do! And to every single person that was a part of the process from sound to aesthetic, thank you and I cherish you! May the Glory be to God!
I actually hate long captions, I know u can’t tell but i don’t care!

Rihanna’s “Needed Me” rises 13-10 this week, matching Michael Jackson for the third-most top 10s in the Hot 100’s history.

Rounding out the Hot 100’s top 10, Rihanna’s “Needed Me” roars 13-10 to become her 29th Hot 100 top 10. With the ascent, she ties Michael Jackson for the third-most Hot 100 top 10s, with the pair trailing only Madonna (38) and the Beatles (34).

Rihanna passes Stevie Wonder’s 28 top 10s. (She earned her 28th just a week ago, when Calvin Harris’ “This is What You Came For,” on which she’s featured, debuted at No. 9; this week, the collab drops to No. 15.) “Needed” (like “Work,” from Rihanna’s album Anti) climbs 5-4 on Streaming Songs (17.3 million, up 3 percent); backtracks 23-25 on Digital Songs (35,000, down 6 percent); and debuts on Radio Songs at No. 42 (28 million, up 21 percent).

Rihanna’s “Work,” featuring Drake, spends a ninth week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 (dated April 30), pushing her past the Beatles for the second-most total weeks spent at the summit. “Work” narrowly fends off Desiigner’s “Panda,” which surges 5-2 on the Hot 100 and tops the Streaming Songs chart.

“Work,” released on Westbury Road/Roc Nation, drops to No. 2 on the Streaming Songs chart after eight weeks at No. 1, with 26 million U.S. streams, down 4 percent, in the week ending April 14, according to Nielsen Music. It falls 3-6 on Radio Songs (97 million in all-format airplay audience, down 13 percent), after reaching No. 2 on the list, and descends 12-13 on Digital Songs (52,000 downloads sold, down 18 percent), which it led for two weeks. Still, “Work” tops Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart for an 11th (nonconsecutive) week.

As reported when the song reached the top, “Work” is Rihanna’s 14th Hot 100 No. 1, placing her in a solo share of the third-most all-time, ahead of Michael Jackson (13). The Beatles lead with 20 No. 1s, followed by Mariah Carey (18). “Work” is the record-breaking ninth Hot 100 No. 1 in a row by non-U.S.-born acts (with Rihanna from Barbados and Drake, from Canada), while this week marks the record-extending 41st straight week that non-Americans have led the Hot 100.

As for more Beatles, Carey and Rihanna: Rihanna has now spent 60 total weeks at No. 1 on the Hot 100 with her 14 leaders, passing the Beatles for the second-most weeks at No. 1 all time. Here is an updated look at the acts that have logged the most time atop the Hot 100 since the chart’s 1958 inception:

79 weeks, Mariah Carey
60 weeks, Rihanna
59 weeks, The Beatles
50 weeks, Boyz II Men
47 weeks, Usher
