"I can’t tell you where I’d see myself in 5 years, but I’ll work my best to be the most successful artist I can be." - Rihanna
Me toooo. Idk, hopefully! She has so many great hits to perform. *fingers crossed*
TIME Magazine in its special issue presented The Ultimate Ranking of Pop Stardom – a chart based on artists who generate the most hit songs. Rihanna ranked #2 on the chart, right after Mariah Carey, who Rihanna always recognized as her idol and inspiration.
Rihanna beats legends like Madonna, The Beatles, Janet Jackson, Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson.
2015 will mark Rihanna’s 10th year in the industry and her new album is said to come out soon. She has many years ahead of her and we’re pretty sure the next time the chart is presented, she will be the one on top.
TIME went through every song that reached the top ten of the Billboard 100 back to 1960 to see which artists had both the biggest years and longest careers. We assigned points based on a song’s rank for each week it was in the top ten. Artists who collaborated on songs are both given credit for its success. Artists were chosen for this list based on all-time chart performance and contemporary significance.
Methodology: Data comes from the Billboard archives. Points are awarded by placement in the Top Ten, from ten points for a number-one hit to one point for a number-10 song. All artists listed by name on a track are given full points for its chart performance, but groups with members who later had solo careers are still counted as separate entities. Points for songs are assigned to the year in which the song debuted in the top ten, even if its popularity runs into the next calendar year.
Yess! When she first started, her label had an ideal image of what she was supposed to be. Then starting from GGGB, she got to take over and really be herself.
