Rihanna’s ANTI album might not be getting the best reviews right now. But it’s doing great in the sales department, as it has already hit platinum just 48 hours after its release. This makes it the first album to achieve this in such a short time.
Rihanna’s ANTI got 1 million downloads in 15 hours, and was streamed 13 million times within the same time frame.
Although some critics have speculated that the album only achieved this feat because Samsung bought a million copies of the album, this didn’t stop the Recording Industry Association of America from acknowledging the album’s success via its twitter account.
Congrats to her!
