T.I. is jumping to Iggy Azalea's defense!!
In response to Banks' racially charged rant, the rapper tweeted:
The UK LOVES Rihanna!
March is looking good for RiRi as the singer has officially sold 15 million records in the United Kingdom!
Rihanna's debut album, Music of the Sun, in the UK seven years and she hasn't looked back since. She is the only artist to have a number one hit for five straight years and the UK has to come to embrace her!
Mercury Music Group prez Jason Illey said the following on the achievement:
Rihanna's only 24 and I have no doubt she'll sell another 15 million records in the near future. It's not about speed, it's about longevity, and Rihanna has a long career ahead of her
From the start Rihanna and her team have treated the UK like home. She's totally embraced Britain - right down to our public transport systems.
Congrats, RiRi!!! We hope you have just as much success in the future!
