Pop-R&B sensation Rihanna may claim to be a bad girl, but Canadians don't seem to mind.

The 19-year-old's third full-length disc, "Good Girl Gone Bad," checked in at No. 1 on the album charts this week with over 17,000 in sales, according to data compiled by Nielsen SoundScan.

It marks the second straight time that Rihanna has come in on top. Her last album, "Girl Like Me," accomplished the feat in May of 2006, selling 12,000 copies.

Elsewhere, Claude Dubois' "Duos Dubois" (15,000) held on tight to No. 2, while Celine Dion's French-language album "D'elles" (11,000) slipped to No. 3 after one week at No. 1.

Michael Buble's "Call Me Irresponsible" and Linkin Park's "Minutes To Midnight" both fell one position to No. 4 and No. 5, respectively.

A crop of debuts occupied the next three spots, with Paul McCartney's "Memory Almost Full" at No. 6, Jean-Pierre Ferland's "Ce Soir La" at No. 7, and Marilyn Manson's "Eat Me, Drink Me" at No. 8.

Maroon 5's "It Won't Be Soon Before Long" fell another four notches to No. 9, and Ozzy Osbourne's latest disc "Black Rain" held onto No. 10.

Other notable debuts included The Police's 2-CD best of collection at No. 12, Chris Cornell's "Carry On" at No. 14, Dream Theatre's "Systematic Chaos" at No. 15, Belly's "Revolution" at No. 27, Bruce Springsteen's "Live in Dublin" at No. 31, and Big & Rich's "Between Hell Raising and Amazing Grace" at No. 32.

In the U.S., T-Pain's "Epiphany" came in at No. 1, followed by Rihanna in second, Paul McCartney in third, R. Kelly's "Double Up" in fourth, and Maroon 5 in fifth.
