In one of the biggest jumps ever recorded in the history of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, Rihanna's newest single 'Take A Bow' rockets from #53 to #1 this week.
'Take A Bow' also debuts at #1-bullet on the Billboard Hot Digital Songs Chart with a phenomenal first week of 266,696 scans. The song was written by fellow Def Jam artist Ne-Yo and produced by Stargate, the same team responsible for Rihanna's 'Unfaithful' (of 2006), and 'Hate That I Love You,' her Top 10 duet with Ne-Yo released late last year. 'Take A Bow' raises the curtain on the upcoming new CD+DVD U.S.release of Rihanna's GOOD GIRL GONE BAD: RELOADED. The new configuration arrives in stores on June 17th - the week after the album officially marks its historic 52nd week on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The original 12-song CD version of GOOD GIRL GONE BAD - source of the non-stop string of hit singles that began with the MTV VMA and Grammy Award-winning global #1 hit 'Umbrella' (featuring Jay-Z), then 'Shut Up and Drive,' 'Hate That I Love You' (featur ing Ne-Yo), and the current 'Don't Stop the Music' - will now be augmented with three bonus tracks: 1) 'Take A Bow'; 2) a cover version of Maroon 5's 'If I Never See Your Face Again' (featur ing Maroon 5); and 3) 'Disturbia.' The newly-produced bonus DVD for GOOD GIRL GONE BAD:RELOADED will consist of behind the scenes footage. GOOD GIRL GONE BAD (released June 5, 2007) was the third album release in less than two years by multi-platinum MTV VMA, Grammy, and American Music Award winning artist - and CoverGirl spokesperson - Rihanna. It followed-up 2006's RIAA platinum A Girl Like Me, containing the back-to-back hits, 'S.O.S.' and 'Unfaithful'; and her RIAA gold debut from 2005, Music Of the Sun, featuring the worldwide smash, 'Pon De Replay.'
