Rihanna Joins Ten-week Club

by | 23 July 2007

R&B artist Rihanna has made chart history after her song Umbrella secured its tenth straight week at number one.

The Barbadian singer joins Bryan Adams and Whitney Houston in breaking the ten-week barrier.

The 19-year-old's song featuring Jay-Z is the first to do so since Wet Wet Wet's Love is All Around 13 years ago.

Elsewhere in the chart's top ten there are no new entries, with Foundations by Kate Nash and The Way I Are by Timbaland featuring Doe and Keri Hilson moving up one place each at the expense of Fergie's Big Girls Don't Cry.

In the album chart meanwhile there is a new number one in the shape of Britain's Got Talent winner Paul Potts.

The 36-year-old mobile phone salesman turned professional tenor signed a record deal with Simon Cowell upon winning the ITV show, and his debut album One Chance pushes The Enemy's We'll Live and Die in These Towns to two.
