Rihanna's "Disturbia" Hits Top, 4th #1 in Three Years

After selling 148,000 digital downloads this past week, Rihanna's "Disturbia" jumps 3-1 to overtake Katy Perry's "I Kissed A Girl" as the #1 song in the country. As Rihanna's fourth chart topper, this puts her in a three way tie for most #1's by a female artist this decade with Mariah Carey and Beyonce. This is also the second #1 from Good Girl Gone Bad Reloaded and if you count a reissue and the original edition as the same album, it's her third after "Umbrella" and "Take A Bow".
Chris Brown's "Forever" remains at #3 and "I Kissed A Girl" drops down to #3. Don't feel too bad for Perry though as her debut single topped the charts in the UK this past Sunday. This week's sales gainer is M.I.A.'s "Paper Planes". Although released in February, this song has recently gained popularity after being featured in the trailor for Pineapple Express.
