Rihanna’s ‘We Found Love’ Ties Adele’s Record for Most Weeks at No. 1
Move over, Adele. Rihanna is hot on your trail when it comes to year-end accomplishments. The R&B star's Calvin Harris-assisted track, 'We Found Love,' has tied the British singer's record for most weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Thanks to its infectious club beat and ever-so-addictive chorus, 'We Found Love' soared to the top of the chart, amassing seven weeks at No. 1. According to Idolator, only Adele’s 'Rolling in the Deep' had as long of a stay at the top spot in 2011.
However, Adele still holds the record for most weeks spent at the top of the Hot 100 this year overall. The soul singer has 12 weeks at No. 1 with 'Rolling in the Deep' and her five-week reign from 'Someone Like You' combined. Rihanna, is just shy in overall performance with eight weeks at No. 1 in 2011, including 'We Found Love' and her one-week rule with 'S&M.'
Still, the Barbadian singer has plenty of cause to celebrate. Seven weeks is the pop star’s longest stint at the top of the Hot 100. She also achieved the goal in previous years with her unforgettable hit 'Umbrella' and her featured appearance on Eminem’s 'Love the Way You Lie.'
