With Just A Hint Of Mayhem

Rihanna rocks a kind of ASBO Bling look

It would appear that UK chart history was made today by Rihanna. She became the first female artist to have a number one single five years in a row. She has almost matched the feat of Elvis Presley who managed a number one in each year from 1957 to 1963, some six years in total. Starting with “All Shook Up” and ending with “Devil In Disguise“. Inevitably the current record is held by the Beatles who had a number one in each year from 1963 to 1969, a 7 year run. Staring with “From Me To You” and ending with “The Ballad Of John And Yoko” I reckon Rihanna has a good chance of overturning both of those records. read about it on the NME site by clicking here.

Rihanna hoovers up yet more chart records

Rihanna’s UK number one singles since 2007 have been;

2007 “Umbrella”

2008 “Take A Bow”

2009 “Run This Town

2010 “Only Girl (In The World)”

2011 “What’s My Name” featuring Drake

Rihanna was born nearly 20 years after the last of the Beatles run and she is still only 22. She will be 23 in February. She originates from Barbados and plays a big part in the support of the marketing of her homeland. She is now an honorary cultural ambassador. She is also a great philanthropist, setting up her Believe Foundation in 2006. It is a charity which supports terminally ill children.

Is it Grace Jones? Is it Max Wall? No it's Rihanna!
