MUSIC | Rihanna “Unapologetic” Album Sells Over A Million, Her Sixth-Million Album


Her breakup with Chris Brown isn’t hurting her career at all. Rihanna has just got word that her Unapologetic album just passed one million sold. According to Billboard:

Unapologetic,” released late last year, sold another 9,000 (down 17%) in the week ending May 26, bringing its to-date total to slightly more than 1 million. The set — her seventh studio album — also became her first No. 1 on the Billboard 200, following six earlier top 10 entries.

In reaching the threshold in its 27th chart week on the Billboard 200 (falling 33-39 this week), “Unapologetic” is selling at a faster clip than her previous album, 2011’s “Talk That Talk.” The latter took 43 frames to reach 1 million.

Of Rihanna’s seven studio releases, all but one have sold a million. Only her debut, 2005’s “Music of the Sun,” has missed the mark, moving 607,000 to date. Her biggest selling set is 2007’s “Good Girl Gone Bad,” with 2.8 million. Her total album sales stand at 9.8 million.

That’s definitely good during these times where everything is downloaded.
