Double No. 1s for Rihanna
Our very own home girl Rihanna has worked her way to another number one hit –– surpassing some of the greats in the music industry, including King Of Pop Michael Jackson.
Her highly anticipated album Anti, hit No. 1 on the Billboard Charts, after its first full week out on the market.
Rihanna, who celebrated her 28th birthday on Saturday, debuted her videos for the single Work on the same day Billboard announced the song had reached No. 1 on the Hot 100, making it the 14th song of Rihanna’s to climb to the top. This puts the superstar past Michael Jackson, leaving her shy only of The Beatles (20), Elvis Presley (18) and Mariah Carey (18). So, Rihanna needs seven more No. 1 hits over the rest of her career to reach the top –– which seems pretty possible.
The video for Work is a two-for-one deal, in which, in the first video, she and Drake dance provocatively in a dancehall club . . . and, in the second, she and Drake dance provocatively . . . in a private room.
Here are some clips from the video.
