Rihanna Record Sales Pass 10 Million In the UK

February 23, 2011
Rihanna Record Sales Pass 10 Million In the UKRihanna's record sales in the UK has passed to 10 million mark, her record label has announced.

The singer has reached the milestone six years after the release of her debut album, 'Music Of The Sun' in 2005.

Rihanna is the only female artist to have a number one hit single in five consecutive years in the UK, and also secured the longest running number one of the last decade with 2007’s 'Umbrella', which retained the top spot for ten consecutive weeks.

Her most recent album 'Loud' has already prodcued two number one singles and sold over a million copies in the UK, becoming her fastest-selling album.

Mercury Music Group UK President Jason Iley said: “It was clear to me from the first time that I met Rihanna that she had the potential to be one of the most successful artists in the world.

“It has been a privilege to work with her these past six years. I believe that we have only seen the tip of the iceberg, and I’m looking forward to seeing her achieve even greater success in the coming months and years.”

Rihanna is set to return to the UK and Ireland in the autumn and winter for an extensive tour.
