Rihanna Earns 13th No. 1 Hit With Eminem’s ‘The Monster’
Eminem and Rihanna are making history again with their latest collabo, ‘The Monster.’ The single is No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart this week. RiRi now ties with Michael Jackson for having the most No. 1s (13), while Em ties for the most No. 1s (five) among the rappers.

Not only that, ‘The Monster,’ is atop the Radio Songs airplay chart, which adds another feather in the R&B singer’s cap. Rihanna now surpasses Mariah Carey for having the most No. 1s in the airplay chart’s 23-year history.
All of this should be déjà vu for both the Detroit native and the Bajan songstress. The last time the duo teamed up, they garnered a No. 1 hit with 2010’s ‘Love the Way You Lie.’ The song, from Em’s ‘Recovery’ album, spent seven weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100 tally.
Meanwhile, the pair have filmed a video for ‘The Monster’ with director Rich Lee. The videographer previously worked with the Marshall Mathers on the visual for ‘Not Afraid.’
