Rihanna continues to come out on top
Pop and R&B crooner Rihanna seems to have the world eating out of the palm of her hand. Not only does she sell out products left and right, but it was recently announced her latest album, "Unapologetic," earned platinum status. According to BET, this is the sixth Rihanna album to reach this monumental goal and her fastest selling CD to date.
The album was released in November 2012 and became her first CD to drop at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in its first week. Thanks to more recent hit singles like "Stay," featuring Mikky Ekko, "Unapologetic" is continuing to sell - more than 9,000 copies were purchased the week of May 26 alone. E! Online reports the latest sales were enough to push the CD over the 1 million mark.
Though Rihanna's status seems to be rising alongside her musical accolades, she did have one less than stellar performance. Ri's 2005 album "Music of the Sun," has only sold 607,000 copies to date.
