Barbados-born pop artiste Rihanna has surpassed the late legendary Michael Jackson on the list of number one hits on the billboard charts.

Days after Rihanna dropped the music video for "Work" featuring Drake, the single became her 14th track to hit Number 1 on the Hot 100 singles chart, beating Michael Jackson's previously held record of 13 chart-topping hits, according to Billboard.

The Beatles are in first place with 20 No. 1s, closely followed by Mariah Carey, who has 18 chart-topping records to her name.

RiRi took to Twitter to express her excitement over the song's new No. 1 spot. "#WORK tops Billboard #Hot100!! Navy you killed it this week! #NavyRDie (sic)," she wrote.

Drake used Instagram to express his gratitude to Rihanna for one more No. 1 hit together. The duo delivered another chart-topping hit in 2010 with "What's My Name?"
