Defeating Plan B's 'Ill Manors', Riri's album returns to the number one spot of the British chart after spending 38 weeks on the Top 40.
Rihanna has reclaimed victory on the Official U.K. Album chart. On Sunday, August 12, the Official Charts Company announced that the Bajan songstress has successfully returned to the top spot of the Britain album rankings with her album "Talk That Talk".
Released in November 2011, "Talk That Talk" has been on the Top 40 for 38 weeks. It was the second non-consecutive week the album placed first as it nears 1 million sales in Britain. Forbes magazine reported that the record has helped Riri earn an estimated $53 million in the past 12 months leading to May this year.
"Talk That Talk", which landed on the fourth place last Wednesday, leapfrogged Plan B's "Ill Manors", which was initially poised to reclaim the number one spot on the U.K. chart. Plan B eventually stayed at the runner-up position, followed by Maroon 5 with their album "Overexposed".
Trailing behind the Adam Levine-fronted band was Emeli Sande's "Our Version of Events", while Paloma Faith's "Fall to Grace" rounded up the top five of the U.K. Album chart.
