|Rihanna clinched a U.K. number one - and a space in the record books - when her new single "Umbrella" secured top spot in the charts on download sales alone. The singer is only the second artist to perform such a feat since Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy," but the first female.
Rihanna, who was performing in Preston, England, when she heard the news, said, "I can't believe it, finally. I always stay at number two in the U.K., but thanks to the fans that get it, it's a great thing. My first Number One in the U.K., it's a great feeling. The single isn't even in the stores yet, a lot of people have got it digitally, so thank you to them." (Starpulse News).
