After her 2007 release of her breakout third album Good Girl Gone Bad, Rihanna received international stardom and scored number one albums all around the world – except the United States.
Well, the Bajan beauty can finally celebrate a U.S. chart topper with her current album Unapologetic! Her seventh album just made it to number one on the U.S. charts and her single “Diamonds” is dominating the airwaves. This week, she sold a total of 238,949 copies.
Even Rihanna was shocked, exclaiming on Twitter:
Wait!!!!! What the FUCK?!!!! #UNAPOLOGETIC just debuted at #1 in AMERICA!!!!! My first number 1 album there!!! Thank you Navy, u deserve it
This just may be a sign that the signer is finally coming into her one and becoming more accepted as a serious artist.
