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

    Rihanna has made music history by becoming one of three acts to make it to No 1 in the UK singles chart seven times over seven consecutive years.

    The only other two acts to achieve this are the inimitable Elvis Presley and The Beatles.

    The 25-year old global superstar cemented her place next to Elvis and the Liverpudlian four-piece, with Eminem’s new track The Monster, on which she is featured rapping.

    The Bajan beauty and 41-year old rapper have 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.

    But this time around, the pair made sure their single hit the top spot. The Monster managed to beat off tough competition from New Zealander Lorde, 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 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.
