Rihanna is breaking all sorts of records on her 'Diamonds' world tour but the singer has yet another reason to celebrate after managing to surpass Justin Bieber as one of the most viewed artists on YouTube with more than 3,784,000,000 views.

'Beauty and a Beat' singer Justin previously held the record as the most viewed artists, with the likes of Lady Gaga and Beyonce trailing behind, but it looks as though he has been bumped off the top spot by Rihanna with the pair locked in a tight battle.

As of today, Rihanna has now soared ahead of Bieber with over 3,784,000,000 billion views while Justin is following closely behind with 3,783,000,000. A fan noticed RiRi's triumph and tweeted the news to the singer with a photo of the numbers, which she retweeted.

It has certainly been a record-breaking month for the 'We Found Love' songstress who recently trumped Lady Gaga's feat of becoming the youngest musician to headline the Stade de France in Paris, at the age of 25.

Rihanna will be bringing her Diamonds tour to Birmingham's LG Arena tonight before moving onto Sunderland, Dublin and the rest of Europe including Amsterdam, Berlin, Zurich and Cologne.

However, those who missed out on the chance to catch her on stage at Twickenham Stadium this weekend will have the chance to see her in Manchester on July 15 and 16 and Birmingham on July 18.
