The superstar is rocking the top number on Billboard’ s Dance Club Songs chart for the fifth time this year .
Desperado, her song from the
ANTI album, rose from the second to the first place on October 14, making it the fifth time this year (which hasn ’ t even ended yet ) that the singer is hitting the top spot.
Riri beat Lady Gaga , Beyonce and Katy Perry to it , with each of them having four No. 1 s between January and December .
Before now , Rihanna had hit the mark four times in four years: 2007, 2010 , 2011 and 2016.
Desperado is the seventh song from Rihanna ’ s album ANTI to hit the top spot on the Billboard chart ; the streak started in April 2016 with
Work featuring Drake , Kiss it better ( August 6 , 2016 ), Needed Me (August 20, 2016 ), and
Love on the Brain ( 2017) Sex With Me and Pose topping the chart earlier this year . During this
ANTI winning streak , Rihanna also had some other songs topping the charts , which included Wild Thoughts and This Is What You Came For.
This makes it the most No . 1 s from a single album since Katy Perry scored seven from the original edition of Teenage Dream in 2010 to 2012.
Below Rihanna , five acts have landed as many as two No . 1 s in 2017 : Dua Lipa, Austin Mahone , Tony Moran , Katy Perry and LeAnn Rimes .
Desperado is the 32nd song by Rihanna to top the charts , second to Madonna ’ s 46 in the 41 – year history of the charts . Beyonce ranks third all- time with 22 leading songs .
