New album of Rihanna goea platinum just one day after release

Rihanna's new album goes
platinum just one day after release
but Billboard mag won't recongnize
it!
Rihanna released her new album 'Anti' this week,
first on Tidal and then on iTunes. And yesterday
the Recording Industry Association of America
(RIAA) certified it with Platinum status...but
Billboard magazine refused to recognize the
platinum status.
And here's why. As part of a $25million deal with
Samsung, Anti became available as a free
download on Jay Z's Tidal this week, making it to
go platinum instantly...
The free download is the reason Billboard isn't
interested. A Billboard spokesperson tells Digital
Trends,
“Billboard has a well documented policy of
not counting free albums towards the
charts.”
Physical copies of the album will go on sale Feb
5th.
