Rihanna New Album ‘Unapologetic’ Debuts No. 1 In The UK! Equals With Madonna

Rihanna makes it a staggering three Number 1 albums in three years as “Unapologetic” follows in the footsteps of last year’s “Talk That Talk” and 2010’s “Loud” by going all the way to the top of the Official Albums Chart with UK sales of almost 100,000 copies this week.

Congratulations to RiRi who has now equalled Queen of Pop Madonna’s chart record for female artist with the most consecutive Number 1 albums. They share this achievement with fellow solo artists Eva Cassidy, Susan Boyle and Norah Jones.

“Unapologetic” is Rihanna’s fourth Number 1 album overall (her third album, Good Girl Gone Bad, also peaked at Number 1 back in 2007), and completes an amazing 12 months for the Bajan superstar. In the UK alone, she’s sold over three million singles, and has become the second biggest selling female singles artist of all time (behind Madonna). And she’s still only 24!
