Rihanna Wins the Super Bowl, Scores on iTunes Charts with Takeover of 27 Singles, 7 Albums


Who won last night’s Super Bowl? Why, Rihanna, of course.

The singer who performed the half time show without any special guests scored the equivalent of 5 touchdowns.

A whopping total of 27 Rihanna hits are now lodged on the iTunes top 100 singles. On the album chart, Rihanna has placed 7 titles.

The sales will mirror Lady Gaga’s when she performed in 2016. Suddenly, Rihanna is everywhere.

No, the star acts aren’t paid for the Super Bowl show. This is their reward. Concert ticket sales would also be booming, but Rihanna revealed last night that she is pregnant. It looks like she as a July delivery date. So no touring for now.
