Rihanna is the world’s most streamed female recording artist on Apple Music, ahead of Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, and Ariana Grande.
Apple recently announced that the Barbadian singer has become the first female artist to surpass two billion streams worldwide on Apple Music, having achieved the milestone on International Women’s Day last Thursday.

It’s unclear if the count is limited to Rihanna’s own songs or includes her features in songs by other artists like Drake, Eminem, and Jay-Z, but it’s an impressive accomplishment either way on the heels of her 30th birthday.
Rihanna topped Apple Music’s list of the top 20 most streamed female artists worldwide:
- Taylor Swift
- Ariana Grande
- Lana Del Rey
- Selena Gomez
- Lady Gaga
- Katy Perry
- Nicki Minaj
- Demi Lovato
- Fifth Harmony
- Mariah Carey
- Little Mix
- Miley Cyrus
All eight of Rihanna’s studio albums are available to stream on Apple Music, whereas some artists don’t offer their complete discography on the service.
