You may have no idea what she's saying, but it's probably translated to, "This song is going to put me in the same category as The Beatles."
That's right. Rihanna's "Work" has spent eight consecutive weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100. During the course of her career, that equals 59 weeks she's claimed the top spot for that chart — tying her for second place with none other than The Beatles.
It's a sort of "hello, goodbye, hello," when it comes to records involving Rihanna versus The Beatles. While RiRi threatens their second-place spot for number of weeks at No. 1, The Beatles still crush Rihanna when it comes to No. 1 singles — The Brits have 20 and the Barbadian bombshell only has 14. Really, Rihanna? Only 14?
