And 4th #1 for We Found Love! (France,Denmark,Norway and UK)

Another record! … @rihanna has now scored SIX #1 singles in 5 consecutive years, a record unequalled by any other female solo artist.

“We Found Love” has just soared straight to No. 1 on the UK charts in its first week out, giving Rihanna her sixth UK chart topper overall, and putting her behind Madonna and Kylie Minogue for the most UK number ones.

Making RiRi’s accomplishment even more impressive is that official promotion for the single has yet to really begin — they haven’t even released a music video yet!

“We Found Love” recently reached No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming the Bajan beauty’s twentieth top ten hit, and beating Madonna’s record for the fastest solo artist to get twenty top 10 hits on the Hot 100.
