Rihanna becomes the first act to score as many as eight No. 1s from one album in the history of Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart, as “Consideration,” featuring SZA, rises 2-1 on the list dated Feb. 24. The song is the unprecedented eighth topper on the tally from Rihanna’s 2016 album, ANTI.

“Consideration,” Rihanna’s first Dance Club Songs No. 1 since “Desperado” in October, also grants SZA her first No. 1 on the ranking.

The run of eight Dance Club Songs No. 1s from ANTI  began on April 23, 2016, with the coronation of “Work,” featuring Drake. During the set’s span of leaders, she’s added two No. 1s not on the set: “This Is What You Came For,” by Calvin Harris featuring Rihanna, which posted a two-week reign on July 9 and July 16, 2016, and “Wild Thoughts,” by DJ Khaled featuring Rihanna and Bryson Tiller, which topped the Aug. 26, 2017-dated chart.

With “Consideration,” Rihanna breaks the record for most No. 1 songs from a single album on Dance Club Songs. Katy Perry previously held the mark, as she scored seven leaders from Teenage Dream in 2010-12: “California Gurls” (featuring Snoop Dogg), the title track, “Peacock,” “Firework,” “E.T.,” “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” and “The One That Got Away.” (Perry added two more No. 1s from the album’s 2012 The Complete Confection reissue: “Part of Me” and “Wide Awake.”)

“Consideration” is Rihanna’s 33rd total Dance Club Songs No. 1, the second-best sum dating to the chart’s Aug. 28, 1976, inception as a national survey. Madonna leads with 46 No. 1s, while Beyoncé places third with 22.
