Rihanna celebrates fourth UK No 1

Rihanna has notched up her fourth UK number one hit, with the upbeat single Only Girl (In The World) climbing to the top of the charts.

Cheryl Cole's Promise This, which was number one last week, dropped to number two, while Alexis Jordan's new single, Happiness, debuted at number three in the Official Charts Company's top 10 singles list.

Entering the charts just one week ago, a massive 126,000 copies of Rihanna's Only Girl (In The World) were sold in its first week.

The success follows three other number one singles she has had in the UK - Run This Town, which was released in 2009, Take A Bow, released in 2008, and Umbrella, which was recorded in 2007.

In total the Barbadian-born singer has recorded 14 singles that have made it into the Official Chart Company's top 10.

The Saturdays' Higher was another new entry to the list, climbing 12 places in the past week to reach number 10.

Cheryl Cole's Messy Little Raindrops topped the album charts.

It was joined by new entries including Bon Jovi's Greatest Hits, which is number two, Rod Stewart's Fly Me To The Moon, which is number five, and Jamiroquai's Rock Dust Light Star, number seven on the list.

Peter Andre's Accelerate debuted at number 10.
