Rihanna‘s “Stay” is now a card-carrying member of YouTube’s billionaire club. 

The Barbados-born singing superstar crosses the billion-streams milestone on the streaming platform with her 2013 hit ballad, which features guest vocals from Nashville artist and producer Mikky Ekko.

Lifted from Rihanna’s Billboard 200-leading album from 2012, Unapologetic, the mellow tune peaked at No. 3 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, was nominated for a Grammy Award (best pop duo/group performance) and scooped song of the year at the iHeartRadio Music Awards.
