Rihanna has tied Elvis Presley’s 25 Billboard Hot 100 top 10 hits feat thanks to her new duet with Eminem.

The R&B star has also beaten Madonna to become the woman to reach 25 top 10s the fastest, but she still has 13 more hits to go to tie with the Material Girl at the top of the record list.

Rihanna and Eminem’s “The Monster” debuted at three on the new countdown on Wednesday.

Only Sir Elton John, Mariah Carey, Janet and Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, the Beatles and Madonna have more top 10s than the “Umbrella” hitmaker.
