Grammy-winning singer Rihanna is filled with emotion today (November 27) with reports claiming her new Unapologetic will debut atop its retail competition at number one tomorrow.
“Wait!!!!! What the F*CK?!!!! #UNAPOLOGETIC just debuted at #1 in AMERICA!!!!! My first number 1 album there!!! Thank you Navy, u deserve it,” she tweeted Tuesday.

While the official Nielsen SoundScan numbers are not out until tomorrow, her new LP is expected to pass country singer Taylor Swift for the top spot.
Looks like the predictions were right : Rihanna ‘s latest LP Unapologetic has debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart, giving the Bajan banger her first #1 album in the United States. The source on this news? Rihanna herself, who took a breather from Instagramming GPOYs with a blunt and jetsetting around the world to tweet about the landmark success — a double feather in her cap, given that “Diamonds” went to #1 on the Hot 100 last week.

Last week, reports claimed the album would spark her biggest opening week sales to date.
Look for Def Jam/IDJ chanteuse Rihanna’s Unapologetic to sell between 240-260k, her biggest debut ever, which is probably good enough to make her #1 next week. Atlantic’s Kid Rock takes advantage of his availability at iTunes for the first time with an estimate of 160-180k for his new, pro-Mitt Romney album, Rebel Soul. (HITS Daily Double)
