So Rih isn't going to snatch Mariah's record for most #1s?

Rih isn't releasing as much anymore and idk if she can snatch more #1s than MAriah anymore. Especially since Mariah might actually add another #1 to her collection if AIWFCIY tops the Hot 100 this year (which it might). So far Rih has been the closest to getting as many #1s. 

Do you think Rih will still snatch Mariah's record somehow? Is it still possible? Or will no one ever snatch this huge achievement. 18 numbers ones (and maybe 19 soon) is massive and idk if anyone will ever get as close as Rih has.

at the age rihanna is now, madonna had still yet to get 5 number ones and a slew of other high charting singles, so i reckon it's possible. but she doesn't seem thirsty for it; if she was then she probably would already have 18.

As the CEO of a new LVMH fashion house I doubt she's worried about Hot 100 #1s especially when she got 14 of those.

Lol... AIWFCIY is not going #1.

It was #3 last year, and the tracking week ends on the 26th this year.

It's all about Fenty Beauty and that LVMH collab for her now. I can't blame her. She hates touring and  album sales in general are dismal so...

Madonna was much fresher to the GP tho.

Rihanna has been dominating radio for 14 years now.

She has less time left in front of her before the public tires of her...

 

Good for her she clearly does not care and has her eyes on her paper...

Madonna turned 30 in the 80's. Back then people like Cher, Tina Turner, etc were still having hits. 

The market now is much less forgiving to acts in their 30's unfortunately.

Well get ready for a change. It's not like younger acts are doing anything exciting. When Rih drops something, people will listen...

Well being that she's far behind Mariah's #1 pace now, it's not gonna happen. 

Mariah, however, was blacklisted during her hottest (age) years between 2001-2005 (ages 31-34). With two albums eras which have completely bombed in terms of producing hit singles. 

 

AIWFCIY really should become her 19th #1 and then she should go out tying them Beatles, pulling all strings with an Ari / Drake collabo to achieve this.

True. Though with Rihanna's track record now, she only gets one #1 with each album since Talk That Talk, so even if she gets her 15th with this new album, who knows how long the next will be. And she could be over 35 by that time a new album comes after that.

She’s probably going to be a lot more focused on her business ventures from now on. She could still break the record if she pushed herself but it seems like music will be mostly an afterthought from now on.

And Rihanna now releases her 1st single and goes missing.

Love On The Brain didn't hit #1 because she didn't want it to let's be honest.

She'll probably get one more, which will likely be another Drake collab. Mariah #1's slowed down when she got into her 30's as well.

Rih is closer to taking Madonna's record for most records sold for a female than she is mariah's #1 record 

She's closer to getting 20 #1s than outselling Madonna. Sales are officially dead and Anti era sold barely 1-2m more than RH era...
