According to a new article released by Billboard, this month Rihanna surpassed Justin Bieber to become the most viewed artist of all time on YouTube. As of today, the total views on her official VEVO channel containing 77 videos have surpassed 3.784 billion beating out the total view count of the 79 videos on Justin Bieber’s official VEVO channel by about two million views. RiRi also has 8.73 million subscribers on YouTube, 3.7 million more than Bieber’s 4.9 million.
Don’t for a second think this accolade is going to slow Riri’s continued push toward total pop domination. Though she’s still recovering from a spring filled with touring, the latest we’ve been told is that new material is already in the works. Stay tuned for updates in the weeks ahead.
