Rihanna is finally number one.
Her seventh album Unapologetic reached the top spot on Billboard’s Hot 200 chart, making it her very first number one album. Yes, this is extremely exciting for the Diamonds singer, but is anybody else surprised that this is her first number one album? Considering she’s one of the biggest musicians in the WORLD and this is her seventh album, you would think that this would have happened sooner.
After jet-setting on her 777 Tour and only releasing one single off the album so far, it looks like RiRi worked her butt off for that top spot. Selling 238,000 copies last week, this achievement is also her biggest sales week in her career. We won’t talk about Taylor Swift’s Red album sales in the first week though.
Rihanna took to Twitter to give thanks to her fans in her own special way. “Wait!!!! What the F**K?!!!! #UNAPOLOGETIC just debuted at #1 in AMERICA!!!!! My first number 1 album there!!! Thank you Navy, u deserve it.”
She later added, “I’m legit crying like a p**sy right now!! #UNAPOLOGETIC.” Cry away, RiRi. Nice work!
Are you surprised that this is Rihanna’s first number one album?
