Barbadian beauty Rihanna this week has made history, by becoming the first female solo artist to have five number one singles in the UK Charts in consecutive years.
The ‘Umbrella‘ singer also scores a chart double this week, with her latest album “Loud” topping the album chart, and her collaboration with rapper Drake, “What’s My Name“, climbs to the top of the singles chart, overtaking X Factor winner Matt Cardle‘s song “When We Collide“. Which is funny, considering the two singers sang together on the final of the show which led to Matt’s victory!
“What’s My Name” makes it her fifth number one single in consecutive years, following “Only Girl (In The World)” in 2010, her collaboration with Jay Z and Kanye West, “Run This Town“, in 2009, “Take a Bow” in 2008, and her huge number one, “Umbrella“, released in 2007.
The 22 year old is only one of two artists to achieve this, alongside Elvis Presley who racked up his consecutive hits in the 1950s. This makes Rihanna the first ever female solo act to do this.
Confirming her undeniable domination of the charts right now is the appearance of her twice more in the top ten! Her previous single “Only Girl (In The World)” which also hit number one is this week at number nine, and her song with producer/DJ David Guetta, “Who’s That Girl“, climbs to number ten. Looks like there is no stopping Rihanna right now!
