    Wink Major supermarket shutdown after Rihanna’s success

    LONDON, England, May 25, 2007 - Following on the heels of Rihanna’s unprecedented catapult to the Number One position of the UK Single Chart this week, one of the largest contributors to the singles market has decided to stop selling CDs.

    The UK chain, ASDA which was purchased by the American chain Wal-Mart, has suffered a dip in CD sales prompting its decision to discontinue selling CDs.

    “We’re reluctantly saying goodbye to one of the most important products in music history,” the retailer’s music buyer Andy Powell said in a press statement.

    Earlier this year British supermarket giant Tesco also stopped selling CDs.

    Industry watchers say that the digital download business now accounts for 79 per cent of the market and pointed to Rihanna’s success this week as evidence. Her lead track “Umbrella” on her new album “Good Girl Gone Bad” shot to the number one position on the Single Chart Sunday night on download sales alone. It was the first time since the chart rules changed to include downloads that a song had made it to the top on download sales alone.

    Meantime, “Shut Up And Drive” - another track on Rihanna’s new album has debuted on her official website.

    The new album is scheduled to be released June 5, 2007.
