Adele and Rihanna have been on their A game and are definite going down as icons. Billboard has just released their records for the week and both women broke more world records.
To begin, Hello just tied Kelly Clarkson’s Breakaway and Celine Dion’s A New Day Has Come as the longest reigning female singles on top of the Adult Contemporary chart all with 21 weeks.
Rihanna has broken an even even bigger record since the track is in its eighth week leading the Billboard Hot 100. This ties her up with The Beatles for the 2nd most weeks atop the chart — both aren’t even close to beatin Mariah Careys though which is 79 weeks!
Let’s not forget that Adele’s 25 was the highest-selling album in 2015 with 17.4 million copies! Which song would you rather listen to? Work or Hello?
