Rihanna becomes highest selling solo artiste
In an impressive run for one so young, the 29 year old Barbadian singer who is considered one of the most consistent musical performers, toppled the 'King' and his longstanding solo record.

The pop star this week reached 213.3 million in overall sales breaking the record previously held by Elvis Presley with 211.5 million sales.
Statistically speaking, the best in every way.  The mind jarring fact is that in contrast, Elvis Presley released 193 albums while  Rihanna has released just 12!

Only the Beatles have sold more than Rihanna with 270 million in sales.

Checking out her other records, Rihanna also holds the crown for;
Best Selling Female Recording Artiste of All Time;
World’s Best Selling Recording Act of All Time Outside of The United Kingdom;
Best Selling Recording Artiste of All Time – Americas;
Best Selling Singles Artist;
Best Selling Digital Artist of All Time.

She also adds another feather to her success story by being an successful entrepreneur. Her footwear line Fenty Puma is currently making waves with fashion gurus like Jennifer Lopez and Mariah Carey wearing the sexy footwear.
