Current online singles sold at 99 cents shouldn't be counted the same way as physical Maxi-Singles at $10-20 and this is what happens with Rihanna.

Hypocritical since most singles during the 90's were discounted so they could chart higher. And let's not act like Rihanna has not released physical singles, they were still a thing till 2009.

The greatest amount of millions Rihanna has sold are single songs at 99 cents. Let's not act as she sold 100 million $20 maxi singles. Even if they were discounted back in the 90s, they weren't sold at 99 cents. Let's not use deceiving tactics to pretend they sold as much as the artists in the early 00s and before. just to put an example, Madonna's Die another Day single was sold back in the day at over 25 english pounds and you had to queue to get it the day it was released at the store. Let's not compare that to buying a song for less than a dollar from your computer...

First of all, it's $1.29. Second of all, Rihanna has sold ~4 million physical singles which is great for an artist that debuted in the DIGITAL era. Funny you didn't say it's unfair to compare albums sales because everyone and their mamas were going platinum/multiplatinum during the 80s/90s aka Madonna's peak (Erotica was considered a huge flop despite selling 6 million, which would be HUGE nowadays). Your fave released some albums in the digital era (just like Celine), so they had advantage of singles sales peak (isn't 4 Minutes her best selling song?), Rihanna didn't when it comes to albums. Plus her race is another hurdle she has to overcome.
