Beyonce Lands Eighth No. 1 With ‘7/11’

It’s safe to say anything Beyoncé touches turns to gold!

This week, the international hitmaker pads her music resume by garnering her eighth chart-topping song as a solo artist after reaching No. 1 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs with single "7/11."

According to Billboard, the new feat places Queen B in three-way tie with Whitney Houston and Alicia Keys for the fourth-most No. 1s among women in the 56 years since the chart launched as a sales/airplay hybrid tally. Only Aretha Franklin (with 20 No. 1s), Janet Jackson (16), Mariah Carey (10) have more.

Beyoncé is also this week’s streaming winner after jumping 52 percent in domestic streams, and how about this, the song jumps from 7 to 11 million streams. The song leaped 12-2 on the Streaming Songs chart.
