I do see looking at the Billboard site that they report slightly different numbers. Here’s the reason. They say JayZ has 4 number one hits, though two of those are Umbrella and Crazy in Love. On those songs, Jay Z was the featured artist, not the main one. As such I didn’t include those under his name. The same reason explains the discrepancy between what the billboard site says and this dataset
