Photo Courtesy - ABC News(LONDON) -- Rihanna has set a U.K. music chart record on the strength of her latest hit, "What's My Name?"

According to the BBC, she's become the first female solo artist in U.K. chart history to have number-one singles in five consecutive years.  Her number-one singles have been, in order from oldest to most recent, "Umbrella," "Take a Bow," the Jay-Z-Kanye West-Rihanna collaboration "Run This Town," and "Only Girl (In the World)."

Elvis Presley was the last solo artist to achieve number-one singles in five straight years, from 1957-1963.
