Rihanna lands first No. 1 album, Adele hits sales milestone

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 disc, which infamously hosts a song featuring Rihanna's former ex and current pal Chris Brown, sold 238,000 copies. Her first single from "Unapologetic," "Diamonds," is still at No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100.

And while we haven't heard from Adele since her "Skyfall" theme - granted, she's been busy with the birth of her first child - the Brit singer is still dominating album sales. Her sophomore album "21" was the top seller in 2011 and is on track to come out as the best-selling album of 2012, as well.

According to her label, "21" has surpassed 10 million copies sold in the States, making Adele the only female Brit or European artist to earn a Diamond Certification from the RIAA.

    She's back!

    Dang, girlie. Give it up, would you. Unless, you shook hands with Sokman, and he could personally vouch for you, why would anyone think differently. What? He could tell it's the real big shiz by the way you type? What a freakin' joke. A guy wouldn't go on and on, like you do.You are a chick, no doubt about it. And on top of that, you are a terrible troll.

    Funny how all you guys think Big Shiz is Vixen. Why would Vixen be defending the same people who run it up her behind and rip her apart?

    • Are you kidding me?

      She never defends anybody but herself. Big shiz is vixen no matter how she protests. Yeah, there was a guy named big shiz at one time, but that ain't him. And yeah, him & sokman went at it pretty good. But again, that's not him. She's all over this blog using different names. So if you're being attacked, you know who's doing it. The b!tch is crazy, plain & simple.

You'd think you'd be too tired after trolling all day, and walking the streets at night. Such a busy girl! That's some busy life you have there, girlie. Here's a thought, take a break today. Or better yet, give us a break today!

      I remember when big shiz started posting. He always posted in black. Your problem is,that you can tell it is you. You must not be a very smart girl. For all of you who know what I'm talking about, keep it to yourself. That way, when she starts trolling you, you will know it's her. I also want to verify that the arrow post & big shiz are the same person. Keep protesting, vixen. The other person was right, too. No guy would come on here and keep b!tching about who he isn't. You really are a idiot.
