Rihanna overtakes Matt Cardle in the midweek charts

The midweek chart update shows that Rihanna ft. Drake's 'What's My Name' has finally overtaken Matt Cardle's 3-week non mover and is now at number 1. 

Following a lengthy battle, the Barbadian star has claimed the title of the midweek top spot ahead of 2010's X Factor winner. The pair performed a duet on the live final of the show but Rihanna has of yet been unable to get ahead of Cardle's 'When We Collide' until now. 

After 8 weeks in the UK singles chart she is finally at the top but all will be confirmed on Sunday, January 9.
