(NEW YORK) -- Rihanna has only been releasing music since 2005, but she's just scored her 10th number one hit, as "S&M" tops the Billboard Hot 100 this week.
Rihanna has now set the record for the shortest span between a solo artist's first and tenth number-one hits -- she racked them all up in just four years, 11 months and two weeks. The only artists to score 10 number ones quicker are both groups: The Beatles and The Supremes.
In addition, Rihanna now sets the record for being the youngest artist to score 10 number one hits -- she's 23. The previous record holder was Mariah Carey, who was 25 when she scored her 10th number one.
On Twitter Wednesday, a thrilled Rihanna wrote to her fans, "10th!!! Now look at what you did, Rihanna Navy. You rocked the [expletive] out! Thank you so much, this is the best news!"
