Rihanna Becomes RIAA’s Top Digital Singles Artist

Rihanna has topped the Recording Industry Association of America’s Digital Single Awards list with 100 million singles downloaded and streamed, the RIAA announced Wednesday. She is the first artist on the list to surpass the association’s 100 million digital singles threshold.

The singer’s milestone is the result of the popularity of the 37 singles she’s released in the last 10 years. “We Found Love,” her collaboration with Calvin Harris, has accrued a nine-time multi-Platinum award from the RIAA, and “Stay,” “What’s My Name” and “Only Girl (In the World) each received six-time multi-Platinum awards. Many more of her singles have gone multi-platinum.

Rihanna has sold 7.5 million albums in the U.S., with 2007’s “Good Girl Gone Bad” reaching two-time multi-Platinum status. Five more of her albums have gone Platinum.

According to the RIAA’s tally, though, Taylor Swift and Katy Perry are hot on RiRi’s heels with 88 million and 79 million digital singles logged, respectively.
