Move over, Adele.

Just when you thought Rihanna’s reign was getting a little rocky, the Roc Nation pop star surprise-released her eighth studio album this week, and managed to move over a million units.

According to the Recording Industry Association of America, Rihanna’s ANTI album is officially platinum.

Due to the impact digital has had on music over the past few years, RIAA counts Rihanna’s 1.4 million digital downloads towards her overall album sales. However, Billboard and Nielsen are not counting the TIDAL downloads.

So fans will have to wait until next week to see how ANTI really performed on the charts.
