She is the first one in the chart's 61-year history.
Rihanna's last studio album 'ANTI' released in 2016. It had debuted at number 27 but rapidly climbed to the top within two weeks. Since then, her album has spent more than 200 weeks on the Billboard 200 album chart making her the first black female artist in the chart's 61-year history to do so.
Rihanna's #ANTI has now spent 199 weeks on the Billboard 200 — and is now 1 week away from becoming the first album by a black woman, in the chart's 61-year history, to surpass 200 weeks. 👑 pic.twitter.com/HJOOsKcliH— FentyStats.com (@FentyStats) November 25, 2019
It has been the longest since she has released an album but she had recently hinted at her new project, R9, and also working on her tenth project. Her fans, however, have made sure that her music remains in style and they keep coming back for more.
