Rihanna was all set to make pop chart history in the United States yesterday when she became the female artist with the biggest jump to number one on the Billboard Hot 100.

Her Take a Bow was expected to rocket to the top of the singles chart from a lowly 53, thanks to a whopping 267000 digital download sales.

The song's jump is the second-best leap to the top, trailing only Rihanna's duet partners Maroon 5 who scored a number one with Makes Me Wonder on May 8 last year after a 63-position hike from 64.

Rihanna's collaboration with Maroon 5 on If I Never See Your Face Again is expected to be one of the new charts highest debuts when the official countdown is released. - Wenn
