For the first time Billboard reveals the most successful music. Billboard has placed Rihanna as #13 on their Greatest of All Time Hot 100 Artists list.

Even though Rihanna didn’t arrive on the Billboard Hot 100 until 2005, with the No. 2-peaking dancehall reggae-splashed “Pon Dec Replay,” Rihanna ranks prominently as the No. 13 artist of the chart’s 57-year history. Her 13 No. 1s — from 2006’s “SOS” to 2013’s “The Monster” (by Eminem featuring Rihanna) — place her in rarefied historical air: She’s tied with Michael Jackson for the third-best No. 1 singles total, behind only The Beatles (20) and Mariah Carey (18).

Key to the 27-year-old Barbadian’s success is her wide range, says Kid Kelly, SiriusXM vp music programming.

“She has surprised fans with the ability to reinvent herself authentically album to album, song to song.”

She also deftly moves among genres, from dance music (“We Found Love,” her 2011 smash with Calvin Harris, sits at No. 25 on the all-time Hot 100) and R&B/hip-hop (her Grammy-nominated 2010 No. 1 single “What’s My Name?” showcased Drake) to pop (2008’s “Take a Bow” and Altered the years inside the parentheses. “Disturbia”). Rihanna’s most recent Hot 100 top 10 even found her in coffeehouse-folk mode, as she hit No. 4 in February with the Kanye West and Paul McCartney collaboration “FourFiveSeconds.” Other acts with whom she has shared Hot 100 credit are also diverse: Bono, Jay Z, Maroon 5, Nicki Minaj and Slash.

With her eighth album on the way, her first since 2012’s Billboard 200 No. 1 Unapologetic, Rihanna is poised to climb even higher on the all-time artist list.

“She doesn’t make any style sound forced,” says WBBM-FM Chicago assistant program director/music director Erik Bradley. “Her versatility has helped her reach.”
