Rihanna: Talk That Talk

Rihanna’s new album “Talk That Talk” will be out in less than 3 weeks. “Talk That Talk” will be in stores November 21st!

Rihanna rises to her 11th No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart, as “We Found Love,” featuring Calvin Harris, ascends 2-1 with Airplay Gainer honors in its sixth week on the survey.

Rihanna is just the seventh artist in the Hot 100′s 53-year history to tally at least 11 leaders, joining the Beatles (20), Mariah Carey (18), Michael Jackson (13), Madonna (12), the Supremes (12) and Whitney Houston (11). She passes Janet Jackson and Stevie Wonder, each with 10 No. 1s.

Among women, Rihanna, thus, moves into a third-place tie with Houston for most toppers, after only Carey and Madonna.

“Found,” the lead single from “Talk That Talk,”  spends a second week at No. 1 on the Digital Songs chart with 243,000 downloads sold, up 5%, according to Nielsen SoundScan. 

The weekly sum pushes the song past a million in release-to-date digital sales (1,057,000), marking Rihanna’s 20th download to reach the million-selling milestone, extending her record for the most such downloads among women. 

Eminem’s “Love the Way You Lie,” on which she guests, is her best-selling digital song (5.1 million), followed by her top-selling title as a lead act, “Disturbia” (4.3 million).

On Radio Songs, “Found” flies 11-7 [85 million, up 22%, according to Nielsen BDS]. The song marks Rihanna’s 17th top 10 on the airplay ranking. Since her first week in the chart’s top tier, July 2, 2005 with “Pon De Replay,” she ties T-Pain for most top 10s in that span.

Rihanna has also been nominated for Billboard's Breakthrough Award, which honors artists in their first decade of headlining who cracked the top 25 tours for the first time.

The awards are primarily based on box office numbers reported to Billboard Boxscore from Oct. 1, 2010, through Sept. 30, 2011.
