London: R&B singer Rihanna took the pop music charts by storm this week with a number one single, album and two other songs in the charts.

The Official Charts Company said on Sunday that the Barbadian singer had re-written the record books becoming first female solo artist in chart history to achieve five number one singles in consecutive years with What's My Name.

The only other solo artist to equal this achievement was Elvis Presley in the 1950s, it said.

The 22-year-old singer knocked X Factor champion Matt Cardle's When We Collide from the top spot to number two after three weeks at number one.

Her Album Loud held on to its number one slot beating off competition from British rapper Plan B's The Defamation of Strickland Banks which had been ahead in the race for pole position last week.
