Last night, RiRi revealed the news on Instagram as the Recording Industry Association of America announced she was the first artist ever to go over 100million cumulative digital single sales – pretty impressive!

Rihanna’s latest single ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’ was the one that tipped her over the total, pushing Taylor Swift into second place with 88million sales – she’s got some way to go to beat Rih!

The stats count download sales and on-demand stream in the USA and the RIAA chairman said, “[Rihanna] has not only surpassed RIAA's one-hundred million mark, but also is the first artist to do so. It's an historic feat and a testament to an extraordinary career.”

Rihanna posted the news on Instagram with the caption, “Thank you God for fulfilling Your plans in my life.... All the Glory belongs to You!!!!”. She also added a screenshot of the chart:
