What has Rihanna not accomplished?

Complex found out that Rihanna is the first artist to surpass more than 100 million Gold and Platinum song certifications. She is now ranked No. 1 on the RIAA’s list of artists with the most Digital Single Awards.

RiRi has an illustrative career that spans 37 different titles that received song certifications during the time she’s been making music. More recently, the Bajan beauty received a Platinum certification for “B***h Better Have My Money” and a mutli-Platinum plaque for “FourFiveSeconds.”

“Gold & Platinum is the industry’s premier way to celebrate achievement in the marketplace,” said Cary Sherman, Chairman & CEO, RIAA. “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.”
