Rihanna: The First Female Artist To Have 10 Songs Reach One Billion Streams On Spotify

It can be said in the true sense, that if one has the heart to do it, they can do it! Rihanna, a devoted mother and a flourishing entrepreneur has yet again proved that she is one of the greatest music artist. She recently shared on Instagram, which was later confirmed by Spotify-On 1st July, Rihanna became the first female artist to have 10 songs to reach 1 billion streams in Spotify history.

RiRi has captioned her post as: “Bad Gal billi,” “wit no new album… lemme talk my s–t!”

Rihanna is still making her fans wait for the release of the follow-up to her last studio album, ‘Anti’. Last year, she released two songs for ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ soundtrack. They were, ‘Born Again’ and ‘Lift Me Up’. It even won her an Academy nomination for Best Original Song. A little earlier this year, she made headlines at the Superbowl Halftime Show, which included a reveal of her second pregnancy.

Rihanna’s billion-streams club songs on Spotify are-‘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).

Most of Rihanna’s fans were celebrating her latest accomplishment, but they also expressed how desperate they were for new material from the musician. Rihanna hasn’t released a new song since 7 years.

“Girl stop playing and drop a song! It can be 10 seconds long! We will take anything,” one fan wrote.

Another said, “That’s why we’re listening to those 10 songs a billion times, cuz you not giving us no new music.”

Rihanna last spoke about her highly anticipated album in a recent interview. She said she puts pressure on herself to make a better album than ‘Anti’. She says she knows that attitude is “toxic” and “not the right way” to look at music because it’s “an outlet and a space to create, and you can create whatever.” However, the wait still continues!
