Rihanna, the iconic singer and fashion mogul, has once again cemented her status as a music industry powerhouse with the recent news that she has broken not one, but two records. As of May 30, Rihanna has become the female artist with the most diamond singles, as well as the most diamond-certified songs.

The RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) bestowed diamond certification upon four of Rihanna’s hit singles: “Needed Me,” “Work,” “Umbrella,” and “Stay.” This prestigious honor means that each of these songs has moved at least 10 million units, whether through physical sales, digital downloads, or streaming equivalents.

This achievement brings Rihanna’s total number of diamond songs to an impressive seven, including hits like “We Found Love,” “Love the Way You Lie,” and the aptly-named “Diamonds.” Rihanna took to her Instagram page to share the exciting news with her fans, captioning her post with the words “Ain’t no back and forth.”

While Rihanna is undoubtedly basking in the glow of her record-breaking success, she is not the only artist to achieve diamond status recently. Nicki Minaj, another trailblazing female artist, recently earned her second diamond single with the 2014 hit “Bang Bang,” featuring Jessie J and Ariana Grande.

This achievement adds to Minaj’s impressive resume, as her 2011 breakout hit “Super Bass” was also certified diamond earlier this year. Cardi B, another formidable force in the music industry, has also achieved diamond status with three of her singles, including the chart-topping “Bodak Yellow” and the Latin-infused “I Like It.”

These recent milestones serve as a reminder of the incredible talent and enduring impact of female artists in the music industry. Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, and Cardi B have not only broken records but have also shattered stereotypes and paved the way for future generations of artists.

As Rihanna continues to make waves in music, fashion, and beyond, one thing is clear: she is a force to be reckoned with, and her diamond-certified songs are just the beginning of her legacy.
