Rihanna Breaks Record for Most Diamond Certifications Among Female Artists




Rihanna has truly embodied the phrase “shine bright like a diamond.” On Friday evening (May 31), she announced on social media that she now holds more diamond certifications than any other female artist.

The photo she posted celebrated her achievements of having “the most diamond singles for a female artist” and “the most diamond-certified titles for a female artist.” She captioned the post, “ain’t no back [and] forth.” One fan commented, “congrats Rih! I know you don’t ever have to release music again but do us a solid ONE MORE TIME. Just that album, please.

Another user remarked, “literally running the music industry without dropping any music!!! SHE IS BACK!” Someone else added, “a successful business and a successful music career… I see why [the] Beyhive is mad.” Rihanna’s diamond-certified tracks include “Work” featuring Drake, “Love The Way You Lie” with Eminem, “Umbrella” featuring JAY-Z, and “We Found Love,” among others.

The Fenty Brand owner has sold over 250 million records, won nine Grammys, 13 American Music Awards, and received an Academy Award nomination. Even though she is currently on a musical hiatus, her music continues to stream at an impressive rate.

Recently, fellow international recording artist Arya Starr shared her experience meeting Rihanna in an interview with Billboard.

“You can see my face. I was like, ‘Wow! Rihanna!’ But I was really calm because she made me feel very calm and comfortable,” the 21-year-old artist shared.

“We got to hang out after the event. Just spending time with my idol, the person that inspired me to do all of this, was the most amazing thing. She gave me so many pointers and advice,” Starr continued, adding, “I love my voice, but I know I have a very deep voice like, ‘Is that a man?! Is that a boy?!’ Rihanna was like, ‘You have the type of voice that can take over the males and take over the girls. You are here to take over both sides of the industry.’”

“She just put everything into perspective for me,” Starr concluded.
