Rihanna's "Umbrella"... The Number 1 Song Download in The UK

Rihanna’s “Umbrella” has been voted number 1 on the UK Singles Chart based on download sales alone - the first time it has been done since chart rules changed. The Barbadian sensation is only the second artist to perform such a feat since Gnarls Barkley's “Crazy” and comes after chart rules changed to allow all online releases to count towards the main countdown. 'Umbrella' is a single track on her new record 'Good Girl Gone Bad' which is due to be in stores June 5th.

"I can't believe it, finally. I always stay at number two in the UK, but thanks to the fans (I've got) it, it's a great thing. My first Number One in the UK, it's a great feeling," she said after coming off stage and learning that she had shot to the top position. "The single isn't even in the stores yet, a lot of people have got it digitally, so thank you to them." Based on results so far, 'Umbrella' is shaping up to be the biggest R&B hit to cool down fans this summer. source: Technorati Cosmos: related links
