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??
