US Chart Roundup: Rihanna Lands 12th #1 Single

Rihanna's lead Unapologetic single, the Sia-penned "Diamonds," has topped the Hot 100, and thankfully ends the nine-week reign of Maroon 5's shit "One More Night." This not only marks RiRi's 12th #1 in the US, it also gives her the distinction of having at least one chart-topping single on six of her seven albums. (Only her debut, 2005's Music Of The Sun, failed to produce a #1.)

Traveling around with Rihanna on the 777 Tour last week proved to be a grueling experience (more on that later), but as her final gig of the seven ended in New York City on Tuesday night, news broke that "Diamonds" had captured the peak position on the chart. Personally, I feel like it's a worthy achievement for a song that's far better than some of her other #1s.

At any rate, I'm going to compile a mega-post with photos from the tour and links to my Idolator write-ups in the next day or so.

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Diamonds" - Rihanna *1 week*
2. "One More Night" - Maroon 5
3. "Die Young" - Ke$ha
4. "Locked Out Of Heaven" - Bruno Mars
5. "Some Nights" - fun.
6. "Let Me Love You" - Ne-Yo
7. "Gangnam Style" - PSY
8. "Ho Hey" - The Lumineers
9. "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" - Taylor Swift
10. "I Cry" - Flo Rida
