Rihanna continues to rewrite music history with her massive success. The Bajan pop star became the first artist ever and is the only one to sell over 100 million singles worldwide.
The “Work” singer is also baking in the huge success of her new album ANTI which went platinum in less than a day of its release. The RIAA has since given her her platinum certification for the album, as well as, a plaque for her 100 million singles milestone.
“Not 1 but 2 @Rihanna milestones: 1st artist in Gold & Platinum history to earn 100M song awards & #ANTI is #Platinum,” the RIAA tweeted.
