Rihanna has made music history with Eminem's track The Monster

Rihanna is the third act to reach No 1 seven times over seven years


Rihanna has achieved the considerable feat of reaching the number one spot in the UK singles chart seven times over seven consecutive years, making her the third act ever to do so.


Rihanna shares her new crown with Elvis Presley and The Beatles - the only other two acts who can lay claim to seven number one hits in seven years. 


The 25-year old global superstar sealed her place in music history with Eminem's new track The Monster, on which she is featured rapping.


This isn't the first time the Bajan beauty and 41-year old rapper have worked together: the pair previously collaborated together on Rihanna's single Love the Way You Lie, which narrowly missed the number one spot in 2010, settling instead for second place in the UK charts.


However this time around the duo's song managed to beat New Zealand sensation Lorde to the UK top spot, as well as One Direction, whose new single Story Of My Life was widely tipped to be their fourth number one.


And while Rihanna was busy making music history, Eminem was also garnering attention for himself as he took home Artist of the Year at the first ever Youtube Awards.


Eminem and Rihanna's chart storming single appears on Eminem's latest album, Marshall Mathers LP 2, which is released tomorrow, November 5.


With the success of their latest collaboration, we're sure we're going to see much more from these two...
