Rihanna’s last studio album, ANTI has now spent more than 200 weeks on the billboard 200 chart. This makes Rihanna the first black female artiste in the chart’s 61 years to meet this milestone. 

She’s also ranked the 75th  most-streamed female artiste on Spotify for the month of November, even though she hasn’t dropped an album in almost four years.

ANTI initially debuted at number 27 on the chart. It topped the chart in its second week, and as a result represented the biggest jump on the chart in eight years at the time. ANTI became the first multi-platinum release of 2016 and the third most-streamed album that year.
