Rihanna is Number One For Digital Music

Rihanna just took over the world. Well, one corner of the music world that is. She has been officially proclaimed the number one artist for digital downloads according to Nielsen Soundscan. She rocked almost 50 million downloads and The Black Eyed Peas came in second with about 5 million less. So yeah, she owns the title.

Does this surprise you? I am a little surprised…. I assumed Lady Gaga would have been in the top. Here is the complete list of the top 10:

 

1. Rihanna (47,571,000)

3. Eminem (42,290,000)
