Rihanna is Best Selling Digital Artist of All Time

Rihanna has sold more digital singles than any artist ever, of all time, ever. That’s impressive.

More people have gone onto iTunes (and those other paid download sources like Amazon and Yahoo Music, or whatever) and paid to download her various singles over the years like “Umbrella” “We Found Love” and “S&M,” to name a few.

Rihanna beats out Lady Gaga and even Adele, who is pretty much sitting on top of every music related throne of 2011.

Overall Rihanna has 47.5 million paid downloads of her hit singles from her various 5 albums. Also, she probably has more albums than most other artists on the digital downloads Top 10.

This isn’t the only online list Rihanna is topping, earlier this year she was named the “Most Popular Person On Facebook” for having 47 million “Likes” on her official Facebook page. I guess what the internet is trying to tell us is that Rihanna is very popular on-line.

I bet nobody actually has a physical Rihanna album, but you bet they follow her on twitter and have her Facebook page set as their internet homepage.

Rihanna’s latest album “Talk That Talk” is out now, why don’t you digitally download it and add to her growing list of millions.
