Congratulations to Rihanna who has surpassed Justin Bieber as the most-viewed artist on YouTube. According to THR, RiRI‘s official VEVO channel, which contains 77 videos, now has a combined total of 3.784 billion views beating out Justin’s official VEVO channel, by just over two million views.

Rihanna’s larger subscription base is credited as the reason for her victory. Apparently, she has 8.73 million while Justin averages around 4.9 million. She also lead’s Bieber in  Facebook “likes” too.  Both artists are in good company and join a small band of others breaking records on social media including Lady Gaga and Eminem.
