Rihanna stays on top of UK singles chart

But there's some comfort for Maroon 5

Rihanna’s ’Umbrella’ has stayed at the top of the UK singles chart tonight despite not being released physically until tomorrow (May 28).

The track has bettered Gnarls Barkley’s ’Crazy’, which went Number One with just downloads one week before release last year. However, that was before chart rules were changed to allow all online releases to count towards the main countdown.

The Top Ten is:

1. Rihanna ft Jay-Z – ‘Umbrella’

2. Maroon 5 – ‘Makes Me Wonder’

3. Beyonce & Shakira – ‘Beautiful Liar’

4. Hellogoodbye – ‘Here (In Your Arms)’

5. Gym Class Heroes – ‘Cupid’s Chokehold’

6. Akon – ‘Don’t Matter’

7. Snow Patrol – ‘Signal Fire’

8. Timbaland/Furtado/Timberlake – ‘Give It To Me’

9. Mutya Buena – ‘Real Girl’

10. Booty Luv – ‘Shine’

In the album chart, Maroon 5 made up for just missing out in the singles – their new LP ‘It Won’t Be Soon Before Long’ has knocked Linkin Park‘s new effort ‘Minutes To Midnight’ from the summit.

Other notable new entries include Sophie Ellis-Bextor at Seven with ‘Trip The Light Fantastic’, Ozzy Osbourne at Eight with ‘Black Rain’ and The Cribs at 13 with ‘Men’s Needs, Women’s Needs, Whatever’.
