Sigh.

It’s official… people love listening to Rihanna mutter the word “Work” and grind on Drake.

As of this week, Riri spends a ninth week at No. 1 with her lead ANTi single and has now spent more time at the top of the Hot 100 chart than the Beatles, which she trailed up until now. Billboard reports Riri has now spent 60 total weeks at No. 1 on the Hot 100 with her 14 hit singles. She only trails behind Mariah Carey who owns the No. 1 spot with 79 total weeks.

“Work” marks Rihanna’s 14th No. 1, beating out Michael Jackson (13). The Beatles lead the pack with 20 No. 1s, followed by Mariah Carey with 18.

The numbers via Billboard:

“Work,” released on Westbury Road/Roc Nation, drops to No. 2 on the Streaming Songs chart after eight weeks at No. 1, with 26 million U.S. streams, down 4 percent, in the week ending April 14, according to Nielsen Music. It falls 3-6 on Radio Songs (97 million in all-format airplay audience, down 13 percent), after reaching No. 2 on the list, and descends 12-13 on Digital Songs (52,000 downloads sold, down 18 percent), which it led for two weeks. Still, “Work” tops Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart for an 11th (nonconsecutive) week.

Rounding out the top five includes Desiigner’s “Panda” at No. 2, Lukas Graham’s “7 Years” drops to No. 3, Meghan Trainor’s “No” slips to No. 4 and Zayn’s “Pillowtalk” dips to No. 5.
