Top Ranking Musicians in the World

Music is the one thing that everyone has in common. That’s right, regardless of where you are from chances are you share a favorite artist with someone halfway across the world. With that said, musicians have fans all over the world but that doesn’t necessarily mean that they are top artists. In fact, no one really knows what it takes to become a top artist. But one thing is clear, the numbers don’t lie. You see artists are ranked by how much of their music is sold. So take a look at our top-ranking musicians in the world.

The first top-ranking musician in the world is none other than singer, songwriter, and businesswoman, Rihanna. That’s right, this may come as a surprise seeing that she hasn’t made music in years but Rihanna is still on top. Singer Rihanna got her start in the music industry at the tender age of 16. Since she released her first song, the singer has dominated worldwide music charts. With that said, she has also made billions in album sales and has sold out hundreds of concerts. It is safe to say that it is understandable why she is considered a top-ranking musician.
