Work’s been atop the U.S. charts for nine weeks. Add that to Rihanna’s 13 other chart-topping songs, and she’s now spent 60 weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100 (one week longer than The Beatles).

The most popular songs by The Beatles in the US were ‘Hey Jude’, which spent nine weeks at Number One in 1968, and ‘I Want To Hold Your Hand’, which topped the charts for seven weeks in 1964. (NME)
