After several weeks at #2, Eminem and Rihanna 's duet "The Monster" has finally reached the top of the Billboard Hot 100, and made some history in the process.

The song becomes Rihanna's 13th #1 hit.  According to Billboard, she's now tied with Michael Jackson for the third-most chart-toppers in history.  She now has more #1 hits than Madonna , Whitney Houston , Janet Jackson or Stevie Wonder . There are now only two artists who've had more: Mariah Carey , with 18, and The Beatles , with 20.  In addition, Rihanna only took seven years and seven months to blow past these music legends.  Only the Beatles racked up 13 #1 hits more quickly, in three years and 17 days.

Meanwhile, Eminem has made some history of his own: he's now tied the record for most #1 hits by a rapper, with five.  Both Diddy and Ludacris also have five.  They all have more #1 hits than Jay Z , who has four.

"The Monster" is Eminem and Rihanna's second #1 hit collabo -- they previously topped the charts with "Love the Way You Lie" in 2010.
