Is Rihanna More Popular than Lady Gaga, Carly Rae Jepsen, Beyonce?

Bow down before her, rival pop stars. Dance queen Rihanna is driving a diamond-studded heel into the backs of fellow music divas, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, and Carly Rae Jepsen, according to new statistics from MTV News and Billboard.com.

Love, hate, or just “eh” her, Rihanna is now the “Best-selling Digital Download Artist of All Time” with a staggering 58 million musical downloads, and she’s one of the few female artists more watched on YouTube than Lady Gaga with a whopping 2,900,000,000 views. (The most-watched video crown goes to Korean sensation Psy for “Gangnam Style” at 830 million views).

When her current single, “Diamonds” surged to the top of Billboard’s Hot 100 list last week, it gave Rihanna, or “Ri-Ri” as she’s known, 12  No. 1s on that chart. That ties her with Madonna and The Supremes for fourth-most hits of all time, and puts her just one behind the late, great King of Pop — Michael Jackson,  MTV reports.

So how did 24-year-old Robyn Fenty from Barbados conquer the music world? Much of the credit goes to mentor Jay-Z and Stargate, the Norwegian producing and songwriting team of Tor Erik Hermansen and Mikkel Storleer Eriksen. They’re the hitmakers behind “Rude Boy,” “Only Girl (In the World)”, “S&M” and “Diamonds.”

On Wednesday, Rihanna’s new album Unapologetic debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s albums chart, selling an impressive 238,000 copies. Download Unapologetic here  from our MyMusicCloud music store (11 million songs) or make your own Rihanna dance mix using singles from our cloud-based  music delivery service.

Rhianna’s next foe to conquer? Taylor Swift! The country cutie’s Red album sold 1.2 million units in its first week. But that would just be “Mean,” wouldn’t it?

The Sound of the Olympics: From Opening Ceremony Music to Athletes’ Favorite Bands

Get ready for an ear-tastic explosion of music Friday when the 2012 Summer Olympics kick off in London and are broadcast around the world. Olympic mix-masters say they’ve compiled 2,012 songs to play over the two-week course of the Games. Eighty-six of those will just be for the splashy opening ceremony, a mashup of iconic British songs from the Sex Pistols to Adele called “A Symphony of British Music” played against an English countryside backdrop.

MyMusicCloud invites you to get in on the fun by earmarking your favorite songs and making your own Olympic music power playlist. Download them from our music store (search 11 million songs) or upload your own recordings to our cloud-based music storage and delivery system from your private collection.

Wondering where to start? How about some of the bands the Olympic athletes are listening to?

U.S. women’s soccer star Hope Solo tells Self magazine her favorite pump-up song is “Ragged Mile” by the John Butler Trio. Sixteen-time U.S. swimming medalist Michael Phelps says he gets pumped to Afrojack, Avicii, and Skrillex. His teammate Ryan Lochte prefers Lil Wayne and Jay-Z. U.S. teen gymnasts McKayla Maroney and Jordyn Wieber adore Justin Bieber, while Gabby Douglas rocks out to Beyoncé and Rihanna. And if soccer sensation Neymar De Silva scores a goal for Brazil, expect to hear singer Michel Telo’s “Ai Se Eu Te Pego!” fill the stadium. (It translates into “Oh, If I Catch You!” in English.)

As we mentioned earlier this month, official Olympics theme songs have also been recorded by Muse, Elton John vs. Pnau, Delphic, electronic gurus the Chemical Brothers, and rapper Dizzee Rascal. At the Games themselves, the Scissor Sisters and Rizzle Kicks will play surprise gigs for spectators, and Blur, New Order and The Specials will rock out at the closing ceremony on August 12. So show your national pride and rock out with the jocks this Olympics season!

It’s a Barbell…It’s a Track Suit…It’s MyMusicCloud!

Last month, we got great feedback from you about our top 10 Valentine’s Day playlist. We wanted to follow up with another 21st century “mix tape”—this one geared toward getting fit!

As with all MyMusicCloud playlists, this one can start at home while you’re gearing up for your workout. Switch to your mobile phone, and your songs will continue playing in one seamless stream as you stretch, warm up, and get into the meat of your workout.

We wanted to start you off with a few suggestions. Here are our staff’s top 10 favorite workout songs:

10. “Party Rock Anthem” (LMFAO): Rap madness. Check. Mental dancers—gyrating. Check. Internal cheering section. Check! You really can’t listen to this song and not shake it…

9.  “I Gotta Feeling” (Black Eyed Peas): This is the 21st century party track.

8. “Get the Party Started” (Pink): Continuing on the party theme….Pink brings it on all registers.

7. “My Life Would Suck Without You (Kelly Clarkson): This is our workout tribute…to love.

6. “It’s My Life” (Bon Jovi): That sinister growl, those liberating lyrics! This really should be our national anthem!

5. “Assassin” (Muse): This song is what would happen if every guitarist were skilled enough to treat his instrument like a drum set.

4.  “Sex on Fire” (Kings of Leon): What’s a really rockin’ run or workout if it doesn’t feel a little like sex on fire?

3. “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)” (Beyoncé): The ubiquitous 2008 pop tune makes a comeback—on your headphones!

2. “Becoming Insane” (Infected Mushroom): You’ll feel like you’re in a daytime nightclub…being DJ’d by a crew of Japanimation characters.

1. “Killing in the Name (Rage against the Machine): Remember the primal scream? It’s back! in a song.
