As previously reported, Bad Gal is also the most-streamed woman on the platform, beating out Taylor Swift and Beyoncé, who nabbed the second and third place slots, respectively.
The pop queen’s impressive discography has helped her reach this major milestone. Some of her top songs on Apple Music include DJ Khaled’s “Wild Thoughts,” Kendrick Lamar’s “LOYALTY.,” Drake’s “Too Good,” and her own singles “Sex With Me,” “Needed Me,” and “Work” featuring Drake.
Rihanna has earned major rewards for her work, even outside of the Apple Music distinctions. Recently, it was revealed that she leads the Recording Industry Association of America’s Top Artists (Digital Singles) list with 121 million certified units. She also has eight Grammys to her name out of 33 nominations.
RiRi’s reach goes beyond music as well.
