Rihanna Sets New Spotify Record

Effective July 1, Rihanna became the first female artist to have 10 songs reach 1,000,000,000 streams in Spotify history, and the Grammy winner took to social media with a graphic of her latest record-breaking achievement with “Bad Gal billi,” “wit no new album… lemme talk my s–t!” 

Yet to release the follow-up to Anti, her 2016 Billboard 200 chart topping LP, the superstar singer/fashionista has returned to music in small amounts. Releasing two songs for the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack: “Born Again” and “Lift Me Up,” that peaked at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100, she earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song. And earlier this year, the Barbadian singer headlined the Super Bowl Halftime Show.

Rihanna’s billion-streams club songs on Spotify include “Diamonds,” “We Found Love” (with Calvin Harris), “Love on the Brain,” “Stay” (with Mikky Ekko), “This Is What You Came For” (with Calvin Harris), “Needed Me,” “Four Five Seconds” (with Kanye West & Paul McCartney), “Work” (with Drake), “Umbrella” (with Jay-Z) and “Love the Way You Lie” (with Eminem).
