It doesn't feel like Rih has been around since 2005. But I'm very happy for her success. She's so consistent.

She's a queen, but I think people dismiss her because she's so young. She'll be considered a legend soon enough.

This is why an artist also needs hits when talking about legacy and legend status. It's not the only factor but it's an important one. Anybody who thinks otherwise is delusional.
