Will Rihanna have the most No. 1 hits on Billboard Hot 100 chart?

So far, she already has 8 No. 1 hits on the chart since her first album in 2005 and is just one spot away from reaching the top 10 of the artist with the most No. 1 singles.
How will she do in the future?

As of 6/11/2011, she has 11 No. 1 singles. Will she get better?

As of 22/11/2012, she has 12 No. 1 singles.

I just looked it up and

Disturbia - fine, that song was pop gold.
Umbrella - same, although it really isnt #1 deserving imo.
Take a Bow - Seriously? Thats shocking to me.
S.O.S. - Really?
Live Your Life- Again, this counts? Its not even her song.
Rude Boy - I didnt realize that song was so popular
Love the Way you Lie - Thats not really her song though, it counts?
Whats my name- Wow, really? Im shocked this song got it and Only Girl didnt

Credit to her though, thats mighty impressive, I had no idea she slayed the charts like that.

She probably has the best team of producers in the industry behind her. She pumps hits like it's nothing.

Impressive list. Unfortunately she is a singles artist. Has she ever had a # 1 album ?

Who cares about albums when you can have 8 number 1's in 5 years.

Re: Will Rihanna have the most No. 1 hits on Billboard Hot 100 chart?

Disturbia - Very catchy, and as mentioned, it was indeed pop gold.
Umbrella - I think this was her best song to date. So many covers and never got boring even after many runs.
Take a Bow - Eugh. I hated this. Rehab was so much better!
S.O.S. - #1? Really?
Live Your Life- Well, yes, she did give backign vocals, but "Live you life, eh eh eh" was all she contributed!
Rude Boy - The song sucked!
Love the Way you Lie - Not really hers, but her voice suited whatever she sang and it is a pretty good tune.
Whats my name- Huh? I've not heard this yet

Pon De Replay didn't get to #1?

Rihanna is one lucky singer because she has great producers and writers. While she's not what I would call talented, her voice is unique.

She'll never be Mariah though. While I think Mariah has had some songs that got to #1 such as Touch My Body, Heartbreaker and Don't Forget About Us, some of her hits have been total classics, e.g. Vision of Love, Always Be My Baby, Honey, One Sweet Day, Hero, We Belong Together, Fantasy...I doubt Rihanna will ever have the sort of classics that Mariah has.

I don't even know why Im making a comparison.

Nothing wrong with being a singles artist. It just means that your end of career greatest hits album will sell tens of millions of copies around the world. (Think ABBA: Gold)

If you don't care about the # of albums sold stop releasing albums and just sell singles online ?

In the end its about selling singles and albums and Rihanna is doing well with singles but her album sales are disappointing to say the least
