Rihanna’s ‘Anti’ Certified First 2X Multi-Platinum Album Of 2016
Rihanna’s ANTI sales are climbing even “Higher.” After nabbing 1 million downloads in just 14 hours and topping the Billboard 200 back in February, RiRi’s latest album continues to reach new levels.
On Thursday (May 5), ANTI was certified double platinum by the RIAA, becoming the first 2X multi-platinum album of 2016. Additionally, her Drake-assisted single “Work,” which spent nine weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, is the first 3X multi-platinum song of the year.
Her tour, named after the album, is also one of the year’s hottest tickets. Just last night, RiRi surprised her L.A. Navy by bringing Drake onstage for “Work.” Drizzy also stuck around to perform “One Dance” and “Jumpman.”
