Rihanna: Gets 8th UK #1
Eminem and Rihanna have topped the UK Official Charts with their new hit ‘The Monster‘. As reported last week, the single was made for Top 40. So its no coincidence that the single has become a massive success.
Since its release ‘The Monster‘ has topped almost every iTunes chart globally.
In the US, the single stands at number three on the iTunes charts while set to sale 400K copies this week. If forecats are correct it would see the single debut at number two on the Billboard hot 100 this week.
But it’s the single’s UK success that has put Rihanna in the history books. Rihanna, Elvis and The Beatles remain the only artists in UK history to score at least one Number 1 each year, over a seven year span.
