She's one of the world's most successful popstars on the planet and now Rihanna has broken the record for the most number one pop songs.
Who'll do it next?
UK rock and indie bands generally have a better chance of cracking America than pop/urban artists. That said, Adele, who broadly fits into the latter category, was the biggest-selling artist in the world last year, so perhaps things are changing.
Many a British pop star has tried and failed (hello Robbie Williams) but in the midst of an apparent UK music invasion of America, we speculate on the chances of those just embarking on their Stateside mission...

The only group's/band's from here that ever really made it in The States were The Beatles,The Stones, Fleetwood Mac and The Bee Gees...Elton John, Eric Clapton, Stevie Winwood, notice they were all singer/songwriter's plus a few i've missed, so to make it there you have to be more than just a pretty face and stand there and sing to even compare to the great's that have graced our ear's from across The States.
Liam....you forgot to mention Neil Diamond, and Paul Simon they were both prolific songwriter's don't you think !!
Probably less than a doz uk acts rated by the usa, as mentioned beatles,stones,fleetwood mac, ledzep, police,george michael, elton, annie lennox, u2, more recent radiohead, others come and go, even one,s successful here like oasis, blur, robbie, couldnt make it, Adele is good enough to, needs to tour. All the beatles loved as individuals. They love and adopt the best. Pity we take some of the usa rubbish acts along with their best. As for one d, little mix, etc, wont even last here.
I like someone like you by adele and move like jagger nice song my favourite of the moment must be dedicated to my ex the song is good but the ginger cat rapping is stunning as for black eyed peas crap, most of the boy groups are rubbish. Olly murs rock n roll type number is also good as for the USA not to much decent coming out of there currently,
What makes people think you have to be talented to break America? The Jonas Brothers, Justin Bieber, Brittany Spears surely prove otherwise.
