Rihanna just made history!
RIAA announced today Riri reached over 100 million gold & platinum song certifications and is the first artist ever to do it. She officially has the most digital single awards over anyone with her 37 singles released during her immense career thus far, including a 9X multi-platinum award for “We Found Love,” 6X multi-platinums for “Stay,” “What’s My Name” and “Only Girl (In The World),” plus a 2X multi-platinum for new song “FourFiveSeconds,” a platinum for “Bitch Better Have My Money,” and many more, according to Billboard.
“Gold & Platinum is the industry’s premier way to celebrate achievement in the marketplace,” said Cary Sherman, Chairman & CEO, RIAA in a release. “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.”
It’s only appropriate for Rihanna to respond with: “bitch better have my money.”
