[photogallerylink id=133791]

Popular music has changed so much over time, and now it’s affecting the world and YOU more than ever. Even if you thought legendary bands like [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Beatles[/lastfm] had the most hits and sold the most albums EVER, newer acts have raised the bar and have beaten many records that were once thought to be unbreakable.

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Rihanna[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Ke$ha[/lastfm], the Glee cast, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Flo Rida[/lastfm] and other famous artists of today have set a new standard for success.


There are so many groups that have been popular, but have never even had a #1 single. Led Zeppelin, REM, Depeche Mode and other well-known pop acts from the past may have a huge following, but they never made it to the top like Rihanna. To this date, Rihanna has ELEVEN #1 singles.

With “We Found Love,” RiRi became the  fastest solo artist to chart 20 Top 10 hits!
