Rihanna is celebrating after reclaiming the number one spot on the British album charts nine months after the release of her new album Talk That Talk.

Celebrating the victory on Twitter.com, the Umbrella hitmaker cooed, "9months later bro."

Rapper Plan B stays put at two on the new chart with Ill Manors, while Maroon 5's Overexposed climbs a spot to three.
