Billboard has just come out with their weekly chart certifications and for just the second time in her career Rihanna has been named the No. 1 record in the United States. According to the publication, ANTI “earned 166,000 units in the U.S. in the week ending Feb. 4, according to Nielsen Music, with pure album sales equating to 124,000 of that sum.” The album jumped from its debut at the No. 27 position seven days ago to dominate the charts this week.
Released exclusively on Tidal on January 28th, thanks to a sponsorship deal with Samsung, the singer's newest work ANTI was immediately named a platinum record by the RIAA for “sales” exceeding 1,000,000. Her first No. 1 came in 2012 with her album Unapologetic meaning that Riri has now logged back-to-back appearances in the top spot.
