Another accomplishment in Rihanna’s illustrious career. The icon is now officially the best-selling solo recording artist of all time.
With her eighth album ANTI garnering platinum singles like “Needed Me,” “Love On The Brain,” “Work,” Sex With Me” and “Kiss It Better,” Riri has surpassed Elvis Presley for #1 on the list.
With updated global sales of 213.2 million certified albums and singles, eight-time Grammy winner Rihanna surpassed rock and roll legend Elvis Presley who sold 211.5 million units.
The achievement is even more significant given that Rihanna has released only 12 albums (including eight studio albums, two remix projects and two compilations) and 65 singles, compared to Elvis’ colossal catalogue of 193 albums and 111 singles.
