The 28-year-old was so happy showing off his first-ever platinum plaque, but his mood quickly soured when a follower noticed a typo on the RIAA honor.

The electronic artist revealed that the engraving misspelled the word "certification," displayed instead "certificatoin."

Oof.

When the producer realized the mistake, he began to an NSFW rant about how the award for his hit from the Furious 7 soundtrack had been ruined.

We totally get why he was upset. This is a huge deal!

But, we can't quite tell if he's actually this livid, or if he's just joking to make light of the situation, but he posted the video to Facebook, captioning it:

How Did Rihanna's ANTI Go Platinum Already If It's Available For Free?!

Filed under: RihannaMusic MinuteJay ZBusiness Blitz

This is shady!

Rihanna is celebrating a platinum designation after ANTI, her eighth studio album, was deemed a massive seller this week by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA)… but wait a second!!

The album, of course, was released for free on Jay Z's music service Tidal — so how could fans have bought one million copies elsewhere if they could just get it there?!

After all, it's only been 24 hours, the RIAA's tracking week isn't even over, and there's no way the album has already sold 1 million legitimate copies!

But maybe there's something else going on

Rihanna Just Made Music History By Being The First Artist To Reach 100 Million Of What?!

Filed under: RihannaMusic MinuteBusiness Blitz

no title

There's no question that Rihanna is one of the most successful female pop stars of all time.

But just in case you had any doubts, Ri Ri just went ahead and made musical history to solidify her name in the record books!

As of Wednesday, Rihanna is the very first person to ever reach 100 million gold and platinum song certifications through the RIAA!

Basically, this means that through the 37 of the 27-year-old's charted singles, her music has been downloaded or purchased more than any other singer on the Recording Industry Association of America's radar.

For instance, Rihanna's highest-selling record We Found Love went platinum a staggering nine times… clearing the way to the No. 1 spot.

With that said, songs can only get certified if the artist and label pay to do so, so there could be some pop stars who would have reached the milestone first had they forked over the money. *cough* Madonna *cough*

Still, what an accomplishment!

Who do U think will be next to hit 100 million??
