Rihanna was one of the biggest winners of the night before the ceremony even started!

Rihanna sweeps the R&B categories at the Billboard Music Awards taking place in Las Vegas today (March 19). The singer won an award in all three R&B categories — Top R&B Artist, Top R&B Album (“Unapologetic”), Top R&B Song (“Diamonds”) — and separate to R&B, Top Radio Songs Artist.

The singer is tied for second most awards of the night with Gotye. She was nominated for 10 awards in total. She did not appear at the ceremony.

Congratulations!

Rihanna earned her first Billboard 200 No. 1 album in November when “Unapologetic” debuted atop the chart, selling 238,000 copies in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Her album debut came one week after she scored her 12th No. 1 single on the Hot 100 chart with “Diamonds.”

This week, “Unapologetic” moves up from No. 6 to No. 5 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, re-entering the top five with 15,000 (down 2%).

Besides two Texas shows she’s rescheduled for November, Rihanna has ended the U.S. leg of her Diamonds World Tour. She’ll be performing in Rabat, Morocco for the Mawazine Festival on Friday (May 24) and begin the tour’s European leg on May 26 in Bilbao, Spain.

    Happiness lies ahead for those who cry, those who hurt, those who
    have searched, and those who tried, for only they can appreciate the importance
    of people who have touched their lives.
