Rihanna Celebrates Becoming the Female Artist with the Most Diamond Singles

Rihanna has joyfully reacted to the news that she now holds the record for the most diamond-certified singles by a female artist. As of May 31, the RIAA confirmed she has achieved seven diamond singles: “Umbrella“, “We Found Love” (feat. Calvin Harris), “Stay”, “Love the Way You Lie“, “Needed Me“, “Work”, and “Diamonds”. Notably, four of these singles (“Umbrella,” “Work,” “Needed Me,” and “Stay”) recently earned their diamond status. Rihanna’s response to this milestone was a tweet accompanied by a visual of her achievements, stating, “ain’t no back n forth.”

A song earns a diamond certification from the RIAA when it reaches 10 million equivalent song units, which can be a combination of digital sales and streams. Rihanna’s seven diamond singles surpass Katy Perry‘s previous record of four diamond singles, which included hits like “Firework” and “Roar“. This achievement further solidifies Rihanna’s impact and dominance in the music industry.

The significance of Rihanna’s accomplishment is highlighted by the RIAA’s acknowledgment of her as having the “Most Diamond Singles for a Female Artist” and the “Most Diamond Certified Titles for a Female Artist.” This recognition comes as a testament to Rihanna‘s enduring popularity and the widespread appeal of her music.

In addition to her latest accolades, Rihanna continues to influence the music scene with her innovative and enchanting artistry, maintaining her status as one of the most successful and celebrated artists of her generation.
