To give readers a brief explanation of what’s happened Rihanna technically “sold” 1 Million copies of her album by cheating the system. Officially, 1 million people have not actually paid for the album or it’s singles. In a deal with Samsung that was inked in 2015 Rihanna sold 1 million copies of ‘Anti’ to Samsung prior to the albums release. So although “technically” the album has over 1 million downloads, those downloads were not purchased by actual people. Samsung bought 1 million copies and in turn gave them away for free. Both Billboard and Nielsen Soundscan are refusing to certify the album as platinum because of this cheating.
