Rihanna beats Flo Rida, One Direction to No.1 with 'We Found Love'

By
Rihanna 'We Found Love'
Rihanna has scored a fifth week atop the UK singles chart with 'We Found Love'.

The Bajan star fought off strong debuts from Flo Rida's 'Good Feeling' and One Direction's 'Gotta Be You' to keep her Calvin Harris-team up at pole position.

Rihanna has now overtaken Adele as the artist to have spent the longest time at number one in 2011, with a total of six weeks between 'We Found Love' and her January release 'What's My Name?'.

The 21 singer previously held the title after 'Someone Like You' topped the chart for five weeks over February and March.

Further down the chart, JLS drop six to eight with 'Take A Chance On Me', Professor Green's Emeli Sandé collaboration 'Read All About It' slips to nine from four and Christina Perri's 'Jar Of Hearts' leaps back into the bestsellers at ten after finishing at 17 last week.

Drake scores today's third-highest new entry at 12 with 'Take Care' which also features the vocals of chart champion Rihanna, as 'Paradise' by Coldplay advances seven to 13.

The Saturdays return to the rankings at 15 with 'My Heart Takes Over', Cher Lloyd's 'With Ur Love' plummets ten positions to 16 and Lady GaGa debuts at 17 with her latest single 'Marry The Night', following a performance on The X Factor last week.

The top 20 is concluded by two big fallers in the shape of Lana Del Rey's 'Video Games', down six to 19, and 'What Do You Take Me For' by Pixie Lott, which tumbles ten entries this Sunday.
