That Rihanna reign will not…let…up.
Indeed, the “singer” – after 6 previous attempts – has earned her first #1 album with ‘Unapologetic’ – her 7th studio effort released this week. And, while her faithful Navy rejoice at the news, her record label home Def Jam just gave them more reason to celebrate…
The charts are expected to reflect the announcement upon their refreshment at the week’s end.
Rihanna’s newest accomplishment sees her surpass late legendary pop icon Whitney Houston‘s 11 #1s and now tie Queen of Pop Madonna‘s 12 #1s (for female artists). If Riri notches a 13th, she will technically (if Diana Ross’s accomplishments are excluded) be the female with the second-most reigns atop the singles chart – second only to Mariah Carey.
The feat comes less than a year after it was announced Rihanna broke another of Madge’s record - most top 10s in shortest amount of time. Sigh…what is the world coming to?
