She may have had a slow start but her consistency has had her back all the way. Pop/R&B superstar Rihannaâs fifth studio album âLoudâ has shipped over a million copies in the U.S. and will probably snag a platinum certification in the coming weeks.
Happy about the albumâs success, Rihanna tweeted âThank you #RihannaNavy for being so sexy and makin #LOUD platinum in the U.S.â
âLoud,â which debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 album chart with a little over 200K units sold, has moved upwards of 830,000 copies in the U.S. The music video for the third single, âS&M,â which will premiere soon, will definitely add a boast to her sales.
âNever have I ever stressed out on the first week,â Rihanna tells New York radio host Angie Martinez late last year. âEver since âGood Girl Gone Badâ, the first week was like 160[,000], and it grew to sell nine million albums. The first week never determines what the success of the album will be.â
Congrats to Rihanna!
