There was a time when Rihanna was just starting out when people are not aware of how long she would last. She is now the 7th artist all over the world who has sold millions of albums. She has millions of fans all over the world and this is apparent through her Instagram account that is being followed by more than 60 million people.
It also helps that she is still very young. It is apparent that she has achieved so much in such a young age. She is very successful as a solo artist but she has done some collaborations that were also well-received. The songs that she makes has kept up with the changing times and this is probably one reason why she is still very popular.
