Congratulations are in order for Rihanna and her team.
After seven years of dropping solid albums and countless hit records you'd think RiRi would have long since scored the top spot on Billboards 200, but that hasn't been the case.
Well that's now over, In at #1 this week with a commendable 238,949 sold this week, ‘Unapologetic' surpasses sales of every other US release, marking the singer’s first time atop the Billboard 200.
In light of her competitors this isn't a major feet, she is still yet to match even the worst sales scored by many of her closest rivals.
That being said Rihanna's current reign certainly points to rising even further into super stardom. There's also the fact that Unapologetic is currently being carried by one single, “Diamonds.”
The whole is packed with many other records that could become hit singles, which will surely carry Unapologetic into platinum status.
Congrats to Rihanna.
