Since Rihanna burst onto the music industry's radar with "Pon de Replay" in 2005, the singer has evolved into an actress, fashion icon and a multi-industry mogul, who has firmly established herself among music's all-time superstars with her Billboard chart achievements.  

Her hits have dominated the airwaves in the past decade, while her recordings have blurred the traditional genre lines, reaching across pop, R&B, rap, dance and dancehall, among others. Likewise, she boasts a who's who of collabotorive credentials on her resume thanks to teamups with Future, Slash, Sir Paul McCartney, Maroon 5, and SZA, for starters. That roster doesn't even include acts who she's claimed multiple hits with: Drake, Eminem, JAY-Z, Kanye West and Calvin Harris.

As Rihanna and her fans celebrate the superstar's birthday, Billboard joins in to recap her top 10 biggest Billboard Hot 100 hits...so far.
