The last eight weeks, Rihanna has found love in a not-so-hopeless place — the top of Billboard‘s Hot 100. “We Found Love” is officially the pop star’s biggest hit ever, hitting #1 for eight weeks straight. RiRi’s collaboration with Calvin Harris surpassed her previous hits “Umbrella” and “Love The Way You Lie” with Eminem, both which topped the charts for seven weeks straight. “We Found Love” also managed to edge out Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep” (which topped the charts for seven weeks) making the Talk That Talk tune the single with the most weeks at #1 in 2011.
Rihanna took to Twitter to share her good news:
“MAJAH” indeed! And with Glee taking a stab at RiRi’s single, we wouldn’t be surprised if this rave-ready anthem makes it to nine weeks (or more). Now let’s see if her next single “You Da One” can copy some of “We Found Love”‘s success once the video drops.
