Adele's "25" has finally been dethroned.

After a first week that yielded only 460 album sales (and 1.47 million free downloads), Rihanna's ANTI has soared to the top of the charts and dethroned Adele's 25.

According to Hits Daily Double, ANTI moved 172,235 units (include streams), putting Rihanna well ahead of 25, which moved 112,645 units.

Kevin GatesIslah took the bronze, selling 112,143 units in its first week -- a mere 502 units behind Adele's 25. To put that figure in perspective, The Game's The Documentary 2 sold 94k copies its first week. Both ANTI & Islah exceeded sales projections by a significant margin.

Congratulations to both Rihanna and Gates on a lucrative week of album sales. With all the projects that dropped today, next week's charts should be particularly interesting...
