Rihanna article was one of the first ones to be posted, way back in June 4. Since, more successful hits already pushed her to 70 million overall sales. This is very exactly what Rihanna is about, hits and hits and hits, again and again, with no break.

In addition, the sheer amount of plays her catalog receives on a daily basis will make her totals climb for many years to come even if she stops releasing new music.
