Nov 21st 2012, 11:20 AM
Congratulations Rihanna! The elements have all converged for her, as “Diamonds,” the fastest-rising single of her career, rises to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 - her record-breaking 12th Hot 100 #1 - setting the stage for the arrival of her 7th album UNAPOLOGETIC.
The chart-dominating #1 global hit “Diamonds” took over the #1 spot in the U.S. with a 125 million radio audience. It happened against the backdrop of her unprecedented “777 Tour,” in which she took a group of die-hard fans and a traveling international media corps of over 150 journalists representing 82 countries, aboard a chartered Boeing 777 twinjet to 7 concerts in 7 days in 7 countries, marching toward the UNAPOLOGETIC release day.
