In just its sixth week on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay, Beyoncé’s “Drunk in Love” (featuring Jay Z) jumps 5-1 to mark her sixth leader on the list. She last topped the chart in 2012 when “Love on Top” reigned for seven weeks. In terms of most No. 1s by a female, Mrs. Knowles-Carter moves closer to leader Alicia Keys, who’s taken eight titles to the top.

Here is a look at the female artists with the most No. 1s in the Nielsen BDS-based R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart’s nearly 22-year history:

8, Alicia Keys

What is power? At its base, it’s the ability to reshape the world around you according to your vision. And who in the music industry did so better in the last year than this power couple?

Leveraging their star power to release new albums in unprecedented ways—Jay Z through Samsung and Beyoncé through iTunes—they instantly changed how the industry and fans thought about interacting with music. He gave his album away; she charged a premium price for hers. But they both used the element of surprise to restore the excitement that used to accompany a new release, before that impact was dulled by the endless thunder of carefully plotted promotion.

Kevin Hart is 5-foot-2, a bonafide star and he’s feeling himself a little bit. Beyonce‘s ‘***Flawless’ just so happens to be the perfect soundtrack to his life right now.

The comedian Instagrammed himself energetically singing along to ‘***Flawless’ — complete with his own choreography. It’s hilarious — as you’d expect from Hart — but it’s definitely an earned moment of empowerment.

His buddy-cop flick ‘Ride Along,’ which the funnyman stars with rapper Ice Cube, opened at No. 1 this weekend and is expected to raked in $48 million at the box office overall after the MLK Jr. holiday. This breaks the record for a January opening.

Hart’s previous encounters with Beyonce are even funnier. The star fake fainted when Beyonce tossed him her towel during a concert. Last week on ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,’ Hart recounted a story when he accidentally spilled his drink on Jay Z and Beyonce at the club.
Will Hart be in similar spirits when his next movie drops? He will star along with Michael Ealy and Regina Hall in the romantic comedy ‘About Last Night,’ which arrives in theaters Feb. 14.
