Rihanna's 'Anti' Album Sells Only 460 Copies but Still Considered a Platinum Album

Rihanna's highly anticipated album,Anti,did not top the Billboard album charts as expected, but it still managed to earn a platinum certification from the Recording Industry Association of America. The album earned a platinum rating after Tidal -- Jay Z's streaming music service that partnered with Rihanna -- teamed up with Samsung to give one million downloads of the album away to fans. Billboard's policies do not count promotional giveaways of albums and therefore the one million downloads given out did not help Rihanna climb the blockbuster album chart.
