Earlier today, The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) revealed that Rihanna sits pretty at No. 1 on their list of artists with the most Digital Single Awards—which means she has more than 100 million Gold & Platinum song certifications.
“Gold & Platinum is the industry’s premier way to celebrate achievement in the marketplace,” Cary Sherman, Chairman & CEO, RIAA, said in a press statement. “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.”
Her recent single "Bitch Better Have My Money" went platinum, and "FourFiveSeconds" is currently 2x multi-platinum.
