Not only did Rihanna celebrate her 29th birthday this week, but she also broke a Billboard music record along the way. Even though it was released a year ago, Rihanna’s album Anti is still dropping singles, and “Love on the Brain” has moved up on the Hot 100 chart from the No. 13 position to No. 8.


According to Billboard, the song’s new position gives Rihanna her 30th top 10 hit, placing her ahead of Michael Jackson, who had 29 top 10 singles as a solo artist.

RiRi got her first top 10 hit in 2005 with “Pon de Replay” and has earned the second-fastest accumulation of top 10s—in 10 years, seven months and two weeks—behind the Beatles.

Something tells me Rihanna won’t be leaving empty-handed at this year’s Billboard Music Awards.

Bye, Kinja! It's been fun (occasionally).
