Billboard is handing out a pretty high honor to Rihanna: Top Pop Artist of the Last 20 Years.

The thing is, Billboard is going strictly by numbers, not singing ability, performance level, or any of that other stuff that actually makes someone a true artist. They came to this conclusion looking at who topped the charts the most between 1992 and 2012, and according to them, Rihanna has:

The most chart appearances: 34

The most top 10s: 21

The most No. 1s: 9

That is quite a feat seven years in the game, even if music connoisseurs are blown away by the fact that she beat out other pop icons like Mariah Carey (no. 5), Usher (no. 7), Janet Jackson (no. 9), and even Madonna who was number 10 on the list. Queen/King Bey landed at 16, which makes Jennifer Lopez having the no. 18 spot sort of interesting. Coming in further down the Top 40 line are Chris Brown (no. 22), Destiny’s Child (no. 26), and TLC (no. 35). If Rihanna keeps cranking out these singles like she does, I’m sure we can expect her to snag many more titles like this one.
