RIHANNA HAS MADE pop music history again.
This time, the 20-year-old Bajan Grammy Award-winner has become the female artiste with the biggest ever jump to the Billboard Hot 100 music chart.
She did it with her new single Take A Bow that soared from No. 53 to No. 1 in just one week.
According to Billboard.com's website yesterday, Rihanna's third major record-breaking act is mainly due to huge digital download sales of 267 000 in one week, while signalling her third United States No. 1 single following SOS and Umbrella.
The digital success sees Rihanna holding two of the top
three positions in first week digital downloads, with only Umbrella and
Mariah Carey's Touch My
Rihanna last year dominated world charts and sales with
Umbrella, which stayed atop the British charts for a record ten weeks.
Prior to that, in 2006 she jumped 33 rungs on the Billboard Hot 100 charts
