That Rihanna reign won’t let up! The singer is expected to score her first ever #1 album with ‘Unapologetic’ when it tops the Billboard 200 next week. First week sales exceeded expectations to large capacity! And that’s not all…
The unstoppable pop vixen is also set to score her #12 number one single on Billboard Hot 100 with ‘Diamonds’!
Seven albums into her record-breaking career, and Rihanna actually achieves her first #1 with predicted sales of a very impressive 240k-260k copies sold. Such numbers exceed ‘Loud’, which became her fastest-selling album in 2010, notching up first week sales of 207k. These latest figures are Rihanna’s highest when it comes to opening numbers.
With Rihanna set to score her 12th number one on the Billboard Hot 100, her accomplishment means that she will surpass late legend Whitney Houston‘s 11 #1s (she has already surpassed the iconic Janet Jackson‘s 10). It also means she will now tie with Queen of Pop Madonna‘s 12 #1s (for female artists).
A 13th number one single on the Hot 100 (which will definitely happen at some point) will result in her being second only to Mariah Carey‘s 18 in achieving the most #1 singles on the Hot 100.
No TV performances in her album release week and she actually achieves THIS? THIS?!?!? Slayage.
