Rihanna is in a league all her own with this latest accomplishment. According to the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), Rihanna is the best selling digital artist of all-time.
She has sold over 100 million digital singles, and 7.5 million digital album.
RIAA CEO Cary Sherman said:
“Gold & Platinum is the industry’s premier way to celebrate achievement in the marketplace. We’ve given awards to artists for nearly 60 years, but it’s rare that we have the opportunity to recognize a milestone like the one Rihanna has reached. Congratulations to Rihanna! She has not only surpassed RIAA’s one-hundred million mark, but also is the first artist to do so. It’s an historic feat and a testament to an extraordinary career.”
