It's ladies ... er, day, on the Billboard charts, as both Rihanna and Adele have cause to celebrate.
For Rihanna, the seventh record was the charm and the 24-year-old singer now has her first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 with "Unapologetic." The album debuted at the top of the chart after its release last week.
The tales from press who were aboard Rihanna's tour jet for the past seven days have ranged from hilarious to distraught to some combination of both.
Rihanna herself, who couldn't have been completely unaware of the response to her 777 tour, made an apology to those who were along for her seven-day, seven-country, seven-city promotional ride when she landed back in the States Tuesday.
Rihanna's much-talked-about single with Chris Brown has found its way online, just days before her full album, "Unapologetic," hits shelves on Monday.
The upbeat pop song - which has alternatively been called "Nobodies Business" on the official track listing that Rihanna tweeted last week - sees Chris and Ri trading verses about a perfect love, one that everyone else should butt out of.
There aren't many women in Hollywood who seem as comfortable in their skin as Rihanna does.
The 24-year-old's nonchalance toward nudity, partial or otherwise, is well-documented, and she brings the same ease in a cover and photo spread for GQ's December issue.
Dedicated to their men of the year - Channing Tatum and Ben Affleck among them - the magazine also highlights their "obsession of the year," Rihanna, clad in nothing but a leather jacket covering her shoulders.
It wouldn't be a Rihanna album if it didn't get everyone talking.
After collaborating with Chris Brown on two remixes earlier this year - and rekindling a friendship with him following the dissolution of their relationship in 2009 - RiRi's also revealed that fans will hear him on her new album, as well.
The singer released the official tracklist for her upcoming release, "Unapologetic," and among collaborations with Future and Eminem is one with Brown. The song, perhaps appropriately titled "Nobodies Business," will undoubtedly cause many to read it as "nobody's business."
Frankly, we're more anxious to hear what Rihanna cooked up with Eminem, whom she worked with on the hit, "Love The Way You Lie." What about you?
"Unapologetic" will arrive on November 19.
Ahead of the November 19 global release of her newest album, "Unapologetic," Rihanna's launching an ambitious mini-tour.
The singer will do seven different shows in seven different countries over a span of seven days starting November 14.
If you haven't picked up on it yet, the number seven is important, as "Unapologetic" is her seventh studio album in seven years. (Does anyone else have the urge to play the lottery after reading that?)
