Rihanna Earns Sixth No. 1 U.K. Single With ‘We Found Love’
It seems that Brits just can’t get enough of RiRi. Despite the objections of one farmer from Northern Ireland, ‘We Found Love’ sold 87,000 copies in just four days to debut at No. 1. The track featuring producer Calvin Harris wasn’t released until Wednesday, meaning that it only had four days to rack up those impressive sales figures. ‘We Found Love’ edges out ‘Moves Like Jagger,’ the Maroon 5–Christina Aguilera team-up that holds at No. 2.
Rihanna was already a Guinness World Record holder for scoring U.K. No. 1 hits in five consecutive years. The new single’s success is only going to build anticipation for her next album, ‘Talk That Talk,’ which drops in November.
The Barbadian singer and London tube rider will now try to fend off the competition, which includes One Direction‘s ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ at No. 4, the Goo Goo Dolls‘ recently-revived ‘Iris’ at No. 5, and LMFAO‘s ‘Sexy and I Know It,’ which jumps 13 spots to No. 7.
