RihannaR&B star Rihanna has continued her blistering chart success in the U.K. after scoring her ninth week at number one with hit single Umbrella. The 19-year-old singer held off competition from Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie, whose Big Girls Don't Cry went up six to number two.


Kate Nash is at number three with Foundations, Timbaland takes fourth spot with The Way I Are and the Arctic Monkeys are fifth with Fluorescent Adolescent. It means Rihanna has equaled the run of hip-hop duo Gnarls Barkley last year with their song Crazy. The all-time record for consecutive weeks at the top of the singles chart is held by Bryan Adams with Everything I Do, which achieved 16 weeks in 1991.

In the album chart, British rockers The Enemy enter at number one with We'll Live And Die In These Towns. U.S. band Interpol hit the U.K. top ten for the first time with Our Love To Admire taking second place and Traveling Wilburys are third. Smashing Pumpkins (Zeitgeist) and The Chemical Brothers (We Are The Night) take fourth and fifth spot respectively.
