Rihanna has returned to Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart with Talk That Talk. The Bajan singer, who was at Number 4 in Wednesday’s Official Albums Chart Update, has leapfrogged mid-week leader Plan B to retake the top spot with her sixth studio album.
Since its release last November, Talk That Talk has spent an impressive 38 weeks in the Official Albums Chart Top 40 and is on course to break the million sales barrier over the coming weeks. However, this is only the second week it has spent at the Official Albums Chart summit.
London rapper / singer / songwriter Plan B is at Number 2 today with Ill Manors, the soundtrack to his critically acclaimed, big screen crime drama of the same name, while Maroon 5 climb one place to Number 3 with Overexposed. Emeli Sande’s Our Version Of Events is this week’s Number 4, while Paloma Faith completes this week’s Official Albums Chart Top 5 with Fall To Grace climbing 11 places to Number 5.
Spurred on by television coverage of the Olympic Games, this week’s highest climber is Chariots Of Fire composer Vangelis’ Greatest Hits album, The Collection, which is up 17 places to Number 29. Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds’ eponymous album climbs 12 places to Number 22.
