Let’s talk about and compare the two artists. Why? Because Rihanna is the only active artist among this list (that is if Madonna won’t release another album) and
Mariah is 3 number one songs away from beating the record-holder, The Beatles.

This is a comparative table of their singles: (naks naka excel pa?!)

It’s a battle of artists with black influences. Let’s get ready to rumble!!

Round 1: Mariah has 18 while Rihanna has 10

This round goes to Mimi
Mimi – 1
Riri – 0

Round 2: Mariah has had 18 number ones in 18 years
while Rihanna has had 10 top singles in 5 years. What a great feat!

Round 2 goes to Riri!!!
Riri – 1
Mimi – 1

Round 3: Mariah is 3 songs away in beating the The Beatles record while Rihanna is
11 songs away.

Round 3 for the Grandma (lol)
Mimi- 2
Riri- 1

Rihanna songs are catchy like the songs Mariah created when she was younger. Plus, Rihanna is young, an edge, because younger audience appreciate her more while
Mariah’s music is kinda overlooked.

Touch My Body vs. S & M, which do you like better? As for me, I love them both.
