Rihanna’s seventh full-length, Unapologetic, looks set to follow in the footsteps of 2010’s Loud and 2011’s Talk That Talk, which both peaked at Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart.
If it can maintain its lead through to Sunday, Unapologetic will be Rihanna’s fourth Official Number 1 album overall (her third album, Good Girl Gone Bad, also peaked at Number 1 back in 2007)!
It’s been 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!
In addition to Rihanna’s Unapologetic (Number 1), Led Zeppelin’s Celebration Day (2), Little Mix’s DNA (4) and Susan Boyle’s Standing Ovation (Number 5), there are three other new entries on today’s Official Albums Chart Update.
