Below is some interesting information about Rihanna from a press release I received yesterday, from the National Publicist – Big Concerts.
Rihanna, the “#1 Person on Facebook” has reached another milestone, with over four billion views confirmed on the video streaming site Vevo.
The recipient of six Grammy Awards® and seven Billboard Music Awards, Rihanna has sold over 41 million albums and 150 million digital tracks worldwide, and currently holds the record as the top-selling digital artist of all time. With over 74 million Facebook fans and over 30 million Twitter followers, Forbes named Rihanna the world’s #1 social media star and the “Vevo Empress” has just reached another milestone with over 4 billion views on YouTube/VEVO, the most ever for any artist.
Her 7th studio album, UNAPOLOGETIC, for Island Def Jam in just seven years has become her 6th Platinum in the USA and she continues to dominate global charts with “Diamonds,” the fastest-rising single of her career to date, “Stay” and has just released a remix of “What Now.”
Rihanna’s DIAMONDS WORLD TOUR Tickets for the 13th of October performance in Johannesburg at FNB Stadium, and 16th of October in Cape Town at the Cape Town Stadium, are available now at Big Concerts and Computicket.
