Say what you will about Pop sensation Rihanna, but when it comes to her ability to move singles, there is really is no denying or matching what really has become a commendable skill.
Because today,in what will be sure to have her fans feeling all kinds of proud, she has been named the highest selling digital artist in US chart history, beating the likes of Beyonce, Katy Perry and Lady GaGa to the top spot.
The following list does not include units from songs Ms. Fenty has served as a feature on:
1. Rihanna – 47,571,000
2. Black Eyed Peas – 42,405,000
3. Eminem – 42,290,000
4. Lady Gaga – 42,078,000
5. Taylor Swift – 41,821,000
6. Katy Perry – 37,620,00
7. Lil Wayne – 36,788,000
8. Beyonce – 30,439,000
9. Kanye West – 30,242,000
10. Britney Spears – 28,665,000
Well done Rihanna!
Indeed, there is really no doubt about it- this truly is a mind blowing feat, especially considering the fact that she has struggled to sell anything over 200,000 units in the release weeks of any of her 6 albums.
Seeing as the majority of the acts she beat to the top spot are able to sell singles and albums alike which ultimately result in them grossing more capital than her year on year, perhaps now would be a good time for Fenty to start penning her own releases.
For, with her albums failing to bring in impressive numbers time and time again in the US, co-writing her own numbers may be the only way for her to truly benefit from the power her name clearly has when it moving cheap music.
