Rihanna Tops UK Album And Single Charts

Rihanna Tops UK Album And Single Charts


LONDON, UK (Top40 Charts) R&B superstar Rihanna has made history by becoming the first artist in 39 years to top U.K's albums and singles charts twice in the same year with different releases. She has broken an impressive chart record after her latest single and new album topped the charts simultaneously over the weekend.

'We Found Love' achieved a sixth week on top of the singles chart, ahead of Olly Murs' new single Dance With Me Tonight.

'Talk That Talk' topped the albums chart in its first week on release, with One Direction's debut album Up All Night in second spot.

The RnB/Pop sensation scored a N.1 last night, November 27, with 'We Found Love' and her new record 'Talk That Talk' managed the same feat in the albums chart making her the first female artist to top both charts at the same time - and twice - in one year.

Back in January, Rihanna's 'What's My Name' and her fifth full-length release, 'Loud', were also No.1 simultaneously so this repeat performance has seen her both break and set the exciting record.
