Rihanna has been breaking records since she launched her career more than a decade ago and she's not slowing down anytime soon، daily mail reported.

Apple announced late last week that the 30-year-old songstress was their most-streamed female artist، coming in ahead of Taylor Swift، Beyonce، Ariana Grande، Adele، Sia and more. According to the app's data، Rihanna's also the first woman to pass 2 billion streams worldwide.

The Barbadian recording artist reacted to the good news on Instagram like only she could. She shared a hilarious video of a young girl showcasing her best dance moves while her friends cheer her on from a nearby bus، eventually taking turns in the spotlight.

She captioned the video: 'When I found out that I was the first female artist to cross 2 billion worldwide streams on Apple Music! God is too lit!!!!!'

Included with the post was a screen grab of what appears to be a tweet celebrating her accomplishment.

Rihanna previously held this title at Spotify، one of Apple Music's direct competitors. In December 2017، the service released data stating that while Ed Sheeran was the most-streamed musician overall، Rihanna was their most-streamed female artist.

She beat Taylor Swift، Selena Gomez، Ariana Grande، Sia، Shakira and more، claiming the title for the third year in a row.

Music isn't the only arena in which Rihanna breaks down barriers and smashes records. Her makeup line، Fenty Beauty، raked in $72 million in earned media value in its first month.

While Anastasia Beverly Hills and MAC hold the top spots with earned media values of $97.3 million and $77.1 million respectively، Fenty blew established brands like NYX، Benefit and Urban Decay out of the water.

In addition to her ever-growing makeup brand، a sneaker line with Puma and her burgeoning acting career، Rihanna is reportedly planning to launch a lingerie line.

This explains why Rihanna continues to top lists of highest-paid female celebrities year after year with a net worth of about $245 million (£177m).
