Lucky number 7even!

The Pour It Up singer has officially nabbed her seventh number one hit on the UK charts thanks to the new Eminem single she’s featured on.

Rihanna joins Elvis Presley and The Beatles as one of just three acts to have scored a number one single over seven consecutive years.  She also makes history with this accomplishment because she is now the first female artist to ever hold the record.
