riri record sales pass 10 million in uk

After releasing her debut album Music of the Sun only six years ago, Rihanna has passed the 10 million mark in UK record sales!!!

What a phenomenal achievement, and she's still so young! She JUST turned 23 this week!

Here's what Mercury Music Group UK President Jason Iley had to say about her:

“It was clear to me from the first time that I met Rihanna that she had the potential to be one of the most successful artists in the world."

“It has been a privilege to work with her these past six years. I believe that we have only seen the tip of the iceberg, and I’m looking forward to seeing her achieve even greater success in the coming months and years.”

We agree! She'll most definitely achieve all types of success as time goes on!

Congrats, RiRi! Very impressive!

    Eh…..I can't take artists these days seriously. If Katy Perry is doing successful, clearly it's easy now a days.



  2. 2

    AMAZING BEATS.. AND CATCHY SONGS… BUT VERY POOR VOICE AND PERFORMANCE!



  3. 3

    I don't want to hate on her success but come on a lot of talentless people are successful now a days celebrity means nothing anymore. There use to be a mystique now it's just blah.



  4. 4

    Hey, for once it's not just us Americans. Apparently 10 million Brits are idiots too.

    Jay Z's puppet will crash and burn before 30.

    you made it seem like her latest album sold 10 mil which will never happen. you and this jason iley and even jayz are douche bags for seeing anything in this hussy.

    All these comments made me literally laugh out loud - because they're so true!!



  8. 8

    All that means is that a whole hell of a lot of people have bad taste. It's unfortunate.



  9. 9

    10 mill what? albums? singles?

    she certainly has not sold that many albums so Im assuming its singles or albums/singles combined?

    if it were albums it would be like 2 mill per album which is utter bollocks. Only her last album has been huge in the UK and thats not up to 2 million!

    she's a good popstar but not greatly talented in any specific area. Voice is crass and has no soul whatsoever. But good enough for pop.

    I don't get all the hype around her.



  11. 11

    So, people in the UK are deaf and have no taste either. It's great that her SINGLES sold 10 million. But, it seems anyone can be a popstar if you put on a body suit and have auto tune. Total talentless moron

    I guess haters will always hate. RiRi is an awesome artist and y'all can't deny that you secretly love her music!

    I am very happy for her and believe she has done a great job. The singers of yesterday are retired or dead, they had the true voices, now they have all kind of computer equipement to make you look and sound any way they want you to look or sound. It is when we see them live we are able to distinguish the difference, if KK, Kendra and other untalented reality stars can become celebrities then why not Rihanna, Britney Spears, Kate Perry, or even Lady Ga Ga.

    shes amazing i wish they wouldnt keep trebling out the music and let the normal voice stay in so it doesnt sound synthetic



  15. 15

    Re: Ivybby – I totally agree. Music is fucking horrible nowadays.

    Well…I am not a hater. I can deny I don't find her "music" catchy or appealing. There are talented singers out that aren't promoted as heavily as this trash. Adele, Sade, Esthero, Duffy, Amy (when she get's her stuff together) have amazing voices who don't repeat the same words over and over and call it a song. I would rather listen to old stuff than hear the trash that comes from this big headed goats mouth.
