Alicia Keys has become the first artist to land atop America's Billboard Adult R&B chart 10 times, thanks to her new duet with Maxwell.

Keys, a four-time Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter, has hit No.1 on the countdown with Fire We Make.

The achievement means Keys has spent a total of 80 weeks at the top of the countdown since her first chart-topper in 2001.

Keys also holds the record as the first female R&B artist to have three consecutive number one albums debuts on the Billboard 200 album chart.
