Rihanna continues to be the groundbreaking, record shattering superstar that we know and love her for. The bad gal keeps on winning as Apple announced that she became the first female artist to cross 2 billion streams worldwide on Apple Music, making an already special International Women’s Day that much sweeter.
Ri Ri. Bad Gal Ri Ri. Robyn, or Ms. Fenty, if you’re nasty. Whatever you call her, there’s no doubt that Rihanna is killing the game. Or I guess we should say games, because she does it all. Her Fenty Beauty line — that’s expected to outsell both Kylie Cosmetics and KKW Beauty — has been widely praised for catering to women of all shades.
She’s reportedly starting a lingerie collection. And now, the Barbadian beauty can add another accolade to her already impressive career. The singer, who turned 30 in February, just became the first female artist to reach two billion streams worldwide on Apple Music.
Yes, two billion. That number doesn’t even seem fathomable. But it was certainly attainable for her Rih, who released her first album in 2005. In true Ri Ri fashion, she made sure to celebrate in a hilarious and sweet way.
On her Instagram, she shared a viral video of adorable children dancing to Wizkid ‘s “Nowo Nowo” and captioned it, “When I found out that I was the first female artist to cross 2 billion worldwide streams on Apple Music! God is too lit!!!!”

Judging by all of those exclamation marks, we’ll assume that Rihanna is elated. And why wouldn’t she be?!
As Apple Music dropped a list of the 20 most streamed women in music for IWD via Instagram on Thursday, Rih Rih reigned supreme, landing the no. 1 spot over star-studded names such as
Taylor Swift (#2), Beyoncé (#3), and Adele (#5) among others.
