Alicia Keys Scores Fifth Number One On US Billboard Chart With New Album 'Girl On Fire'

5 December 2012, 16:21

The 'No One' star's latest album has knocked Rihanna off the top spot in America.

Alicia Keys has topped the US album chart with her newly released album 'Girl On Fire' after selling over 150,000 copies in its first week.

The 'Fallin'' singer released her fifth studio album at the end of November and dethroned Rihanna's 'Unapologetic' this week to take the number one spot on the US Billboard Top 200.

Alicia's fifth studio outing features the titular lead single 'Girl On FIre', as well as songs penned by both UK star Emeli Sande and US singer-songwriter Bruno Mars. 

The 'No One' singer first topped the chart back in 2001 with her debut 'Songs In A Minor', before also reaching number one with 2003's 'The diary Of Alicia Keys', 2005's acoustic outing 'Unplugged' and 2007's 'As I Am'.

Alicia's fourth record 'The Element Of Freedom' was kept off the top spot back in 2009 by Britain's Got Talent star Susan Boyle.

ALicia Keys is due to return to the UK in 2013 for a new arena tour beginning at the Liverpool Echo Arena on 18 May and performing across Nottingham, Birmingham, Manchester and Newcastle before ending at London's O2 Arena on 30th May.
