Recently, it was revealed that she leads the Recording Industry Association America’s Top Artists (Digital Singles) list with 121 million certified units. She also has eight Grammys to her name out 33 nominations.
RiRi’s reach goes beyond music as well. Her Fenty x Puma Spring/Summer 2018 collection is set to drop on Thursday (March 15), while her Feny Beauty collection is on pace to outsell lines by Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian.
