Rihanna Scores Record Sales Of 20 Million In The UK!

Her biggest-selling single to date is the Calvin Harris smash, We Found Love...

Rihanna has achieved record sales of 20 million in the UK, according to figures from the Official Charts Company.

The Bajan babe, who headlined Radio One's Hackney Weekend on Sunday (24th June), has managed to shift six million albums and 14 million singles since her debut LP, Music of the Sun in 2005.

Martin Talbot, managing director of the Official Charts Company, said of RiRi reaching the milestone: "Rihanna's record, in selling more than 20 million records in the space of seven years, is truly staggering.

"There certainly must have been something in the water when she - and Adele three months later - was born in spring 1988!"

Rihanna's biggest UK single to date in Calvin Harris-produced tune We Found Love, which has currently sold 1.14 million copies.

Eminem collaboration Love The Way You Lie and Loud single Only Girl (In The World) have also managed to sell over a million copies.

The 24-year old hitmaker made history last November after scoring No.1 albums with both Loud and Talk That Talk in the same year.

However, RiRi's highest-selling record still remains 2007's Good Girl Gone Bad, which has managed to rack up sales of 1.85 million to date.

Rihanna's Top 10 biggest-selling UK singles are as follows:

1. Rihanna ft. Calvin Harris: 'We Found Love'
2. Eminem ft. Rihanna: 'Love the Way You Lie'
3. Rihanna: 'Only Girl (In the World)'
4. Rihanna ft. Drake: 'What's My Name?'
5. Rihanna ft. Jay-Z: 'Umbrella'
6. Rihanna: 'S&M'
