They trail only The Beatles, with 20, and Mariah Carey (18). How has Rihanna’s music sold? Find after the jump a look at her best-selling songs and albums over her first decade of dominance, according to Nielsen Music.
  • “FourFiveSeconds” by Rihanna and Kanye West and Paul McCartney is one of the 10 best songs of 2015 so far according to Billboard. Here’s what they have to say about it:

 It’s the end of June, and we’re still waiting for the new Rihanna and Kanye West albums… as well as some indication that either will be coming soon. To tide us over, however, the pair of music superstars linked up with a legend and recorded a durable, folked-up soul sing-along. Ye and Rih always zag when we expect them to zig, and we’re forever grateful for it.
