Billboard Mention

>> Thursday, March 17, 2011

With twin ascensions to No. 1 on Billboard's Pop Songs and Adult Pop Songs charts, P!nk matches the marks for most leaders on each Nielsen BDS-based radio airplay ranking.

"F**kin' Perfect" lifts 2-1 to become P!nk's seventh No. 1 on Pop Songs, tying Rihanna for most toppers in the chart's 18-year history. P!nk passes Beyonce, Mariah Carey and Lady Gaga, each with six No. 1s.

While P!nk matches Rihanna's mark for most Pop Songs No. 1s, the latter star rewrites another chart record. Rihanna passes Carey for most Pop Songs top 10s, as "S&M" whips up a 14-9 advance to become her 18th top 10. She first reached the top tier with "Pon De Replay" (No. 2) in July 2005. Carey has collected her 17 top 10s between 1993 and 2009.
