Beyonce Hot Topic: Is Rihanna Beyonces Biggest Rival?

On a talent tip, their skills couldn’t be any further apart-with one having lots of it and the other renowned for her lack of it.

However, perhaps down to the genius of Beyonce‘s husband Jay Z, Rihanna has become one of the world’s most Popular acts- joining Knowles’ to become the only two ‘black’ singers with unmatched notoriety.

Yes, while she is yet to score a #1 LP or match Knowles’ critical feats, the last four years have seen the pair pitted against each other- their sales scrutinized and compared- the ‘mentor/student’ relationship they were alleged to have had thrown into disrepute.

So now we ask:

Is Rihanna Beyonce’s Biggest Rival?

    Sales wise, yes. But that’s it. Talent wise, Ciara is. And when Ciara comes back this year, she will be in competition with them and the rest of the pop girls.

    Rival absolutely not! to be someones rival you need to be matched on talent. And these ladies sure are not matched on talent. It is simply because they are both young black women. Beyonce has been out for nearly 16 years slaying, breaking records and setting trends. Rihanna although she has recently found success in no.1 songs simply doesnt compare in ANY catergory and it is such an insult to Beyonce to even say rihannas name in the same sentence.

    They are chart rivals yes. But really Rihanna spews out albums. If beyonce did, I’m sure we’d see different chart results. Thing is, ask anyone over 10 and they can recognise their talent level is miles apart. Beyonce can sing and dance and is respected by her peers and legends. Rihanna has no class, little artistry other than skank and no clear path other than what da label say eh eh

    Isnt it funny my queen has more number 1 singles than Beyonce even though beyonce came out almost a decade before her.

    Isnt it enough funny that Rihanna has had a minimum of three number one singles per year since she debuted but B hasnt had ONE since 2008.

    Isnt it funny how rihanna isnt always being sued for stealing ideas but Beyonce has a closet full of lawsuits ranging from Jennifer Armour to Desree?

    Sorry but Beyonce is in a league of her own. She has solidified herself as one of the greatest performers of our generation. She is the most referenced artist when it comes to females. Everyone has to bring her name up when speaking of Rihanna, Ciara, Britney, Xtina, Gaga, & even Aaliyah, every successful female artist is compared to her. She has broken records & has won numerous awards. Beyonce is much better in my opinion. & please don’t compare Beyonce’s weakest performance to Rihanna’s best, Beyonce will always win.

    HELLO IS THAT REALLY A COMPARISON? LOL. sam = hits. he really wants these hits.
    Rihanna can never gain the respect beyonce has gained in the industry after 15 years. She cannot match the talent beyonce has and Beyonce sales were pushed with no social media. Rihanna has more albums than Beyonce and that is it. Her music is generic and lame. Her talent is no where. She is just a puppet.
    Anyone with a good sense can see that after 7 years she has not one iconic era or performance. Instead of building her brand she is destroying it. Her influence is no where near music. no one is inspired by her in music but maybe hair colors. shame, shame.
    In a decade Beyonce conquered music, films and business. she is the highest paid musician and highest paid black actress

    She is in he own lane and the industry has made in quite clear already. If beyonce has to be compared to a pop star it will not be rihanna. I would accept another female who has had a great impact in music and has talent.

    Of course she is but they’re so different in so many ways, both talented even if some love to criticize Rihanna, nothing special about the two except that they are the only Black female singers that make competition to White Female Singers, they’re both overvalued by their Fanbase and some critics, which is not a bad thing because every Musician in some part is no matter their Race or Gender. Beyonce has always play the role of the good girl, almost puritan which is hypocritical, because she’s always half naked on stage just like the rest, no classic to me, she is a b**** just like Rihanna, Britney, Xtina and Gaga are. Rihanna she’s a badass, she is risky, she doesn’t care what people think about her, she will calm down with the time, just like every normal person does. As a Musician Beyonce is a great singer nothing impressive, she can do some decent choreography, Rihanna has good vocals she just need to control her live singing, nothing impressive, not a dancer but can shake her ass like the rest. In conclusion both women are nothing more than being part of the rest of the long list of the Female domination in the Music industry. plaese can we go back to the times when Men were the kings, i’m tired of these women obsession for fame, money, power and being better than her colleagues. Thta’s why the Rock never dies to me, because is full of Men, Pop Music is full of hungry Women full of themselves.

    When musical icons welcome you with open arms & praise you, that is something that almost never happens to artists. Patti Labelle, Tina Turner, Steveie Wonder, Barbara Streisand, Diana Ross, & Prince have praised Beyonce. She has been in the industry for 15 years and has accomplished so much (16 Grammys) before she was even 30. Rihanna has said “my greatest idol is Beyonce” what competition? Rihanna would have to learn to sing & dance before we make it a competition. Love Rihanna but no one can take Beyonce’s spot.

    Rihanna is the anti Beyonce artist. While Beyonce has all the talent and performance skills, Rihanna has the ‘rebellion’ and ‘rock star’ personality that surpasses skill, hence why she does not try to improve her talent. Which is exactly what makes Rihanna her biggest rival to date, even though Beyonce has and will probably continue to win the battle overall. But its obvious you cant just yet count Rihanna out of the war

    All the Navy can bring up are singles, seriously singles? A single is $1.29 an album starts at $10. Beyonce may not have 10 #1 singles but she has 5 #1 singles & 4 number #1 albums (she also has another 5 #1 singles with DC). 6 albums yet her tiredass fanbase can’t get her a #1 album? Beyonce will always win specially in the eyes of legends. Let’s not even bring up talent, I know the Navy ain’t dumb enough to compare Queen Bey & Rihanna on a talent scale.

    These are just some of the honors, this is not even including over ventures, only music. No one has even done all of this in 10 years.

    Rihanna has 3 more years to top that and she is not even quarter way yet. she has more singles because more albums = more singles and don’t forget the fact that she releases them one after the other. she has no MUSICAL HIGHLIGHTS. IF THERE IS ANY LET KNOW.

    @ ZANIA SHE IS BIGGER INTERNATIONALLY YET HER TOUR COULDN’T GROSS MORE THAN BEYONCE’S. HER TICKETS ARE SO LOW AND DISCOUNTED. BEYONCE HAS MODERATE SALES, WITHOUT A HIT AND TRAVELLING THE WORLD. #1 ALBUM IN MORE COUNTRIES THAN RIHANNA. SHE IS SO GREAT AND HER MOVIE IS TANKING SO BAD. WHY CAN’T HER FANS SUPPORT HER. OH WHY CAN’T SHE HAVE A #1 ALBUM IN THE US YET?b**** HAVE A SEAT AND GO STUDY THE CAREER OF BEYONCE. SHE IS NOW WITH CHILD, AND LET ME KNOW HOW FAR AND HOW LONG WILL THE BAD GIRL ATTITUDE TAKE HER. MAYBE IT WILL DRAG HER IN THE HALL OF FAME.

    IT HAS BEEN 7 YEARS AND SHE CANNOT EVEN MAKE MONEY OFF HER MUSIC TO PLACE HER ON FORBES? THE FACT THAT RIHANNA WAS THE ONLY ARTIST ON TOUR LAST YEAR REALLY GOT YALL BRAVE. SO BRAVE

    @kimberly How many billboard awards do Beyonce have this Year? How many #1 singles that top 100 billboard do Beyonce have from last year? How many platinum digital singles do Beyonce have from last year? How much did Rihanna Loud and Talk that Talk sold international and How much did Beyonce sold with 4 internationally? Rihanna didn’t get a #1 album because Def Jam releases her album around thanksgiving with major artist competition. Beyonce released her albums with no competition last year. We are not talking about Beyonce career accomplishments, we are talking about who is her rival as of today in music. Don’t say Beyonce doesn’t have to compete look at her sales from the past year. The answer is Rihanna.

BeYAWNce has yet to match the success of her first album, while Rihanna outsold her debut with her sophomore and her sophomore with her third album and even matched the success of Good Girl Gone Bad with LOUD. BeYAWNce’s flop/hit ratio has never been more 4lop the past few years. I RELISHED the day 8 BeYAWNce singles in a row flopped and missed the Top 10. LMFAO i can’t.

    If adele claims Bey as her idol and still stan for her but aint competiton,How the hell would goatssie one???

      But, it was true that Beyonce couldn’t sing that well when she first came on the scene. She was always over singing and doing sloppy ass runs trying to sound like Brandy. Today, Beyonce is like a whole new creation. The girl can sing her ass off and she has pretty much surpassed all of her peers, even Usher. That is a testament to her hard work and determination. However, she had to have some talent to be able to get as good as she became. It’s hard to see Rihanna rising to that level.

    Beyonce is better than Rihanna altogether, but on the other side of things, they both jack their styles from others and each other. Rihanna even said it herself that all the “it” females right now have this inflated ego and if another female comes along and upstages them, they feel compelled to compete 10x’s harder.

    IMO, Rihanna, Katy, Gaga, and Beyonce have all destroyed what music is all about. They’ve all turned it into some narcissitic competition.

    All four of Beyonce’s solo albums topped the charts. All six of Rihanna’s albums didn’t. And don’t give me that “holiday competition” excuse…if Rihanna were the “star” her idiot fans think she is, then she should be able to beat her competitors for the top spot. That she is unable to says more than you fools have the balls to admit.

    All of Beyonce’s #1 singles have been HER songs. A handful of Rihanna’s are actually other peoples songs, where she just played hook singer on. Sorry, but “Love The Way You Lie” and “Live Your Life” aren’t Rihanna songs.

    Beyonce is worth over $300 million – herself…add Jay-Z’s money to hers and her house is worth nearly a billion. Rihanna doesn’t even have $100 million.

    Beyonce has 16 Grammy’s, which is the 3rd most for a female, and she’s just one award away from being in the all time top 10…I don’t even know how many Rihanna has, but I bet it ain’t half as B’s number.

    Beyonce’s highest grossing tour earned over $100 million. Rihanna’s highest grossing earned under $100 million.

    Beyonce has acted in 4 films that topped the weekend box office…one of which (her most recent) she had above the title credit. Now she’s doing a movie with Clint Eastwood and Leonardo DiCaprio. Compare that to Rihanna’s silly Battleship movie that she isn’t even the star of, and the studio is nervous about releasing Stateside.

    Beyonce has iconic/legendary celebrities and public figures like Oprah, Barbra Striesand, Stevie Wonder, Prince, Michelle Obama, Clint Eastwood, etc., etc. singing her praises and constantly reaching out to her. What legends endorse Rihanna?

    I think it’s obvious who the bigger star is. I don’t know who Beyonce’s competition is, but it ain’t Rihanna.

    If Rihanna’s chart statistics seem better now, it’s because this b**** releases a new album every year. Hell, she’s rumored to working on another album. They don’t have faith in her or her audience to have her take a break, because they know that if she does the public will very easily move on. Beyonce releases a new album every 2-3 years, and still causes more hysteria than Rihanna does. Why? Because Beyonce is a real star, with a real following and can afford to take her time. She can also afford to go against the grain and do what she wants to do (like release an R&B album in an all pop climate). Rihanna can’t. She HAS to play the game. She HAS to strike while the iron is hot. Because NOBODY is going to wait for her…or support her if she decides to experiment or be contrary to what’s popular right now.

    Rihanna is basically just another pop singer on the radio pandering to what’s popular at the moment and having hits because of it. She’s totally interchangeable with Ke$ha, Katy, LMFAO, etc., etc. She’s not a powerhouse. She’s not a brand. Let’s be real, the b**** is not even a star. She’s just a pop singer.

      Beyonce is considered an Icon and legend in the making. She is no longer a “pop star.” She has surpassed that stage.

Maybe Lady gaga will considering how she has totally slayed the industry and even put Bey out of business (well not really), but she’s the only one I can see as Bey’s rival in terms of worldwide popularity and influence.

    first of all their vocal ranges are not that far apart as yes bey can hit some high notes that riri can never dream of touching, riri can go lower then bey can ever dream of also
    sales wise riri has sold more albums and singles since 2005 then any other artist and yes it myt be 6-4 but they have sold more or less the same amount of albums, compare how short of a time riri did that in and that is impressive either way
    right this very moment riri’s stock has never been higher and is higher then most b****** in the industry except adele.

    and i guarantee you if this two b****** do release albums on the same day, bey will reach 1mil in the usa faster but both albums will die with the same total, and world wide rihanna will reach 2mil faster and end with atleast a total bigger than bey’s by 1 mil. plus she will have the added single sale advantage

You all buy into and appreciate ridiculous antics/gimmicks designed to cover up Rihanna’s lack of overall talent.

    Rihtards keep saying that 4 is a flop and Beyoncé can’t have a #1 hit. But when was the last time Rihtard had a #1 hit without a generic europop trash? Like 2 years ago? LMFAO! Where’s You Da Flop, Birthday Flop and Talk That Flop? I don’t see them anywhere. I’m surprised that YD1 flopped, it is merely a pop-R&B track influnced to dubstep.

    All four of Beyonce’s solo albums topped the charts. All six of Rihanna’s albums didn’t. And don’t give me that “holiday competition” excuse…if Rihanna were the “star” her idiot fans think she is, then she should be able to beat her competitors for the top spot. That she is unable to says more than you fools have the balls to admit.

    All of Beyonce’s #1 singles have been HER songs. A handful of Rihanna’s are actually other peoples songs, where she just played hook singer on. Sorry, but “Love The Way You Lie” and “Live Your Life” aren’t Rihanna songs.

    Beyonce is worth over $300 million – herself…add Jay-Z’s money to hers and her house is worth nearly a billion. Rihanna doesn’t even have $100 million.

    Beyonce has 16 Grammy’s, which is the 3rd most for a female, and she’s just one award away from being in the all time top 10…I don’t even know how many Rihanna has, but I bet it ain’t half as B’s number.

    Beyonce’s highest grossing tour earned over $100 million. Rihanna’s highest grossing earned under $100 million.

    Beyonce has acted in 4 films that topped the weekend box office…one of which (her most recent) she had above the title credit. Now she’s doing a movie with Clint Eastwood and Leonardo DiCaprio. Compare that to Rihanna’s silly Battleship movie that she isn’t even the star of, and the studio is nervous about releasing Stateside.

    Beyonce has iconic/legendary celebrities and public figures like Oprah, Barbra Striesand, Stevie Wonder, Prince, Michelle Obama, Clint Eastwood, etc., etc. singing her praises and constantly reaching out to her. What legends endorse Rihanna?

    I think it’s obvious who the bigger star is. I don’t know who Beyonce’s competition is, but it ain’t Rihanna.

    If Rihanna’s chart statistics seem better now, it’s because this b**** releases a new album every year. Hell, she’s rumored to working on another album. They don’t have faith in her or her audience to have her take a break, because they know that if she does the public will very easily move on. Beyonce releases a new album every 2-3 years, and still causes more hysteria than Rihanna does. Why? Because Beyonce is a real star, with a real following and can afford to take her time. She can also afford to go against the grain and do what she wants to do (like release an R&B album in an all pop climate). Rihanna can’t. She HAS to play the game. She HAS to strike while the iron is hot. Because NOBODY is going to wait for her…or support her if she decides to experiment or be contrary to what’s popular right now.

    Rihanna is basically just another pop singer on the radio pandering to what’s popular at the moment and having hits because of it. She’s totally interchangeable with Ke$ha, Katy, LMFAO, etc., etc. She’s not a powerhouse. She’s not a brand. Let’s be real, the b**** is not even a star. She’s just a pop singer.

    If Beyoncé thinks Rihtard is competition, then Queen Bee completly disregards her. She released two non-friendly-radio songs (RTW and Countdown), 4 is the opposite of what pop radios have been demanding, she drops low budget music videos. In other hands, Rihtard works with the hottest DJs and producers of the moment, drops the most generic euro-pop-dance-trash songs only to appeal radios and basic people, jumps on any artist’s track, do a bunch of tricks to get her accomplishments, spend the day promoting her stuff on Twitter, releases high budget music videos. Rihtard works her ass off to do half of Beyoncé does, and Queen Bee doesn’t even try that hard. DEAD. Rihtard see Beyoncé as competition, but Bee sees Rihtard as just one of her maids.
    Do I have to say that Rihtad work for Jay-Z (aka Beyoncé’s husband)? LMFAO!

    YES. Beyonce doesnt know when or how to promote a single she could have had 5 top tens off 4 if she released them properly and with the right promotion

    End Of Time Should’ve been the lead single instead of RTW would have gone straight to #1 with all that promotion.

    Love On Top should have been the 2nd single released after the VMAs would have been a top 10 if the video was released and the single for radio stations the day after

    I Was Here should have been the 3rd released as a 10th anniversary charity single for 9/11. would have been a top 10 if it was a charity single and sung at the ceremony which was televised WW

    Schoolin’ Life Should have been released as her Im On A Break and still relevant single….would have made the top 20

    she then should have taken a break until february and released Run The World as her comeback single, with the right promotion and handling it could have been a top 10 single in march 2012 if she performed on Idol.

    then Best Thing I Never Had should have been released June she should have performed at The Voice Final. would have EASILY been a top 10.

    THE GURL DONT KNOW HOW TO PROMOTE LIKE RIHANNA.

    Where have you been has been exercised to the POINT.

    the Video is on POINT

    the single is CATCHY

    she will promote it.

    Beyonce needs to get her act togetehr im a staaan and she has handled this 4 era sooo badly im angry when it could have done soooooooooo much better shes sold 140 million records (with dc + solo) FFS and shes sold what less than 5 mil off 4 inc singles and album sales….damn right embarrassing.

    I completly agree with you. 4 is kinda embarassing for Beyoncé’s standard. I think the problem with 4 is that it doesn’t appeal the current mood of pop music. Beyoncé is a multi-formated artists and she should’ve appealed both of her fan base not only the R&B one. Just see Usher, Chris Brown and Rihanna, they all have their urban jams, but they also have some dance songs to appeal pop radios in their hands. Just see how Def Jam is releasing Where You Have Been after all Rihanna’s urban singles failed to hit top 10… It will give TTT another life for sure. And to top it off, Run The World and Countdown aren’t radio-friendly songs, these songs are great, but they aren’t worth as a single, even urban radios ignored them. I thought that she learned this after Ring The Alarm, but she didn’t. I hope these two exemples will be enough to realize that these kind of song will never work on radios.
    I can’t believe that she ignored End Of Time, I Miss You, Start Over, Schoolin’ Life and I Was Here. I can’t. At least, she was wise enough to see the potention of Party, Best Thing and Love On Top, they saved this era. I’m also tired of these low budget videos.
    But I think she learned with her mistakes and is changing, she’s already interacting with social network (see tumblr and twitter) and I bet her new album will have a bigger commercial appeal.

    The fact that RIhanna had a #1 single while her album was released, during the busiest and most important shopping week of the year, and it STILL didn’t top the charts (or break 200k) just goes to show that she isn’t Beyonce’s competition. Beyonce released her album during the summer — when fewer people were shopping — and didn’t have a monster single on her hands…and it STILL topped the charts, opening with a larger # and had a longer/steadier stay in the top 10.

    4’s sales are comparable to what the average ‘hit’ album (with multiple hit singles) does these days. The general listening public may not have been gung ho about Beyonce’s latest music — but Beyonce’s fans had her back, and as a result her album STILL did business. That, dear friends, is GAME.

    On the other hand, TTT features Rihanna’s biggest hit, and yet it’s one of her poorest performing albums. Because it featured WFL, TTT should have not only topped the charts…and stayed there…but the followup singles should have done well just on the strength of the first single, but none of that happened. Something is WRONG with this picture. I’d be willing to bet that Beyonce and Columbia made more money from 4 than Rihanna and Def Jam made from TTT.

    The whole point of singles is to SELL THE ALBUM they’re cut from. If your album can sell to the industries standards without the presence of a hit single, then frankly you don’t need one. No one makes any money from single sales, except for the songwriter and producer — and since Rihanna neither writes or produces her own s***, it’s safe to say that her chart “success” is a hollow victory; one that she doesn’t even profit from herself.

    The bottom line is that, unlike Beyonce (whose latest album proves that she has a ton of ‘good faith’ fans), the public doesn’t trust Rihanna’s albums to be worth the $10. They mainly check for the singles and only casually pick up the album when/if they remember to and only when/if it’s convenient.

    Don’t act like Rihanna has some rabid fan base, because she doesn’t. Her fan base talks big s*** but is actually lazy as hell. If they can’t do something from their computer for damn near free, they don’t do it. Beyonce’s fans actually get their asses up and drive to the record store to cop her whole album. Rihanna fans just get on Twitter and TGJ to talk s***.

    RIHANNA TTT : With sales barely exceeding 197K copies, ‘Talk That Talk’ actually sold 10K copies less than Rihanna’s previous album, ‘Loud’. So what exactly is the reason for the slow start of the record? Well, while there may have been many possible causes, the main reason for the slow chart start lies with Rihanna’s US fans themselves.

    BEYONCE 4 : In the United States, the album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart, selling 310,000 copies in its first week. It also became a number-one chart hit in several other countries.

    4 sold over a million copies, went platinum, and performed on par with the average sales of what’s considered a ‘hit’ album these days…that’s “what happened” to it.

    Far as promo goes, Beyonce basically stopped promoting 4 after the VMA’s. Rihanna is all over Twitter reminding her what, 10 million followers (?) to buy the album. Have 10 million people bought it? Is Beyonce on Twitter begging her fans to watch her new music video the same way Rihanna is asking people to watch hers? And nothing Beyonce did was as big as Rihanna teaming up with the guy who kicked her ass, not once but twice in the same moment. GTFOH.

    I didn’t say anything about R&B vs. Euro, but since you brought it up…yeah…I would *love* to see Rihanna’s ass attempt to challenge the commercial music world with something atypical…but that’ll never happen, because not only is she too much of a tool to do it.

    Do you know how easy it would have been for Beyonce to call up Calvin Harris, Dr. Luke, RedOne or David Guetta for her some idiotic, turn-your-brain-off euro dance b******* ala “We Found Love?” They all would have jumped to work with her too, I bet. And since it doesn’t take talent or personality to push that junk to the top of the charts these days, I’m sure she could have easily scored more hits that way. Maybe it just wasn’t worth it to her. Maybe she knows euro/electro-pop is crap and didn’t wanna be burdened having to perform the kind of God awful music Rihanna makes in order to appeal to dumbass 12 year olds like yourself? Hmmm.

    Question:Is Rihanna Beyonce’s Biggest Competition? NOT Is Rihanna more talented than Beyonce? Most are answering the later.
    O.K, the answer for the question asked is NO. Why? Rihanna and Beyonce were direct competition from 2006 to 2009. They are no longer competition. U need to understand what the word competition means. To be honest bey hasn’t been competing since 2009, a bitter fact the beyhive will find it difficult to come to terms with. In every competition, there is a winner and competitions are events, and events have time frames. If we capture the period from 2011-2012, Rihanna is streets ahead of Beyonce. 4 scored no.1 while TTT peaked at no.3(correct me). However world wide and overal sales favoured TTT despite it being 6months ‘younger’. On the singles front, it would be foolish to compare. All bey’s singles have vids except for EOT, on the other hand, Rihanna’s 3 singles have vids and of those, 2 charted higher than all of singles from 4. BC was never given a proper release.
    In conclusion, Bey had her time and she will always be a better live performer and singer than rihanna but at the moment rihanna is competition to Gaga and katy. Bey is almost a legend now and i think she is no longer making music to compete with anyone. The race is now for the new and younger acts. If she tried, i am sorry she wouldn’t win. I would advise her to rather preserve her legendary status than try to compete with these young girls, it won’t be good for her. #Bey is no longer in the competition#

    Beyonce put herself in check with 4.

    I am Beyonce stan and because I’m so in love with Beyonce my whole family hates her. They used to hide my Beyonce cd’s and dvds because they knew i would play them loud all day everyday.

    This is the first time in 8 years that I’ve seen people in my family listening to Beyonce or dancing to it or watching the music videos. Even my old ass mom is singing party by Beyonce.

    Beyonce has taken herself back to real music excluding Run the World. I say give it a few more months and people are going to hop of this pop s*** and the talentless will be separated from the talent. Adele has brought real music back to the spotlight and with the return of greats like Brandy Monica and Mariah Carey. I’m sure Rihanna won’t stand a chance.

    People tend to forget how versatile rihanna is. If the taste of the general public changed from pop to r n b/hiphop today, riri would give u something like Cheers, Whats my name, teamo, russian reoullete, umbrella rudeboy etc. That wouldn’t affect her much, people would still eat her stuff up.

      You just shot your own point down. RiRi has had more albums so she will sell more. Why are you so hateful to Beyoncé she is more talented. just because u sell more doesn’t mean your better. bey took a break she is married with child so she is more restricted. remember riri is managed by jay z who is married to whom?

    BeYAWNce stans can keep foaming at the mouth to say BeYAwnce has four #1 albums but you forget to mention that half of those are in bargain bins, used cd stores, clearence racks, and flea markets around the country. BIONCI releases albums when theres no competition. The only album that ever had any competition was I Am… Sucha Farce the other 3 were released weeks where she outsold the #2 album 3 times over. It’s all marketing, after all BeYAWNce is the biggest product on the market. And according to you BEY-sides, un4tunate didn’t have ANY singles released at all. If a BeYAWNce single 4lops.. suddenly it wasnever a single. Even if it hasa video, she performed it, was released to iTunes, and was sent to radio. Apparently un4tunate didn’t have any singles because they all flopped. I guess they were all promos, or street singles, or buzz singles. Puleaze. And keep bullshitting how 4lop sold a million copies. So what! It took 7 singles and half a year before it barely sold a million copies. OH but suddenly it doesnt’ matter how many copies it sold because it was a “deep” and “risky” album .GORL BYE. Who shoots a dozen videos and releases 7 singles, overseas promotion, interviews, magazines, TV spots… but oh they didn’t want it to sell. You BeYAWNce stans are mentally ill.

    Let’s do some basic math.

    Profit / Shows = average profit of each concert

    90 x 10^6/97 = 927.835 per concert

    103 x 10^6/108 = 953.704 per concert

    These numbers don’t lie. What’s your next excuse? Oh! I forgot to say that Rihtard had famous musicians openning her tour, people like Cee Lo Green, J. Cole, B.o.B and Calvin Harris. In other hands, Beyoncé gave a chance to unknown artists like Solange, RichGirl, Shontelle. Beyoncé released a global successful dvd from her tour, RIhtard’s Loud dvd has never seen the light. Rihtard sold several tickets for $5 on Groupon (just google it). See? I’m done with you.

    even with the bee hive trying to belittle rihanna and call her every

    than any other artist in the world and around the globe for that matter.

    And even with beyonce being in the industry for twice longer than beyonce
    and having formal training and charm school and some money more than
    RIHANNA ever had to work with since her pops had a good job and her mom
    a beauty scholl beyonce came out the barn gate running full steam ahead
    of RIHANNA and the last three or four years RIHANNA has pulled up next to beyonce and BY PASSED her by miles and miles and that is what kills the bey
    hive members because, since RIHANNA voice has a accent they tries to say that
    rihanna is different because her vocals do not sound like beyonce’s or others in the industry. These backward narrowed minded folk can not deal with the FACT….than RIHANNA has staked her claim and she is not backing down from or for beyonce ‘as ass or nobody else. Many hate RIHANNA because she is different and come from a very different cut of wood then your average artist. Beyonce has achieved a lot and did really great in her career and theres no deyning her that, and i will give it to her her accomplishments or many, but…… considering RIHANNA’S time in the industry and what she has accomplished has far exceeded beyonce in her time frame of the same number of years as RIHANNA. Take rihanna years and take 6 years of beyonce’s career and rihanna has done far more than beyonce has. Go on ADD THEN UP RIHANNA HATERS AND BEE HIVE……

    LOL at the purposeful juxtaposition of those videos…nice touch :)

    the only reason these women are seen as “competition” is because fans (and bloggers) are really messy these days. there’s no reason why both can’t be equally successful; it’s not like consumers only buy one album a year or anything, right? i love both beyonce and rihanna, for different reasons, and have all of both of their music. when i’m in the mood for something edgy and/or fun, i put in rihanna. when i’m in the mood for some funky, soulful, rich sounds, i go with beyonce. now if we break it all the way down, of course beyonce is far better and far more important to the industry. but rihanna definitely has her own lane and knows how to own it, and she fills an important role in the industry too (you always need a wild child to keep things interesting).

    what’s going on is more a war of their fanbases, which are mostly made up of girls and women. girls and women are constantly comparing; we compare ourselves to others women, just like we compare all the female singers to each other. there’s this false notion out there that one woman’s success equals another’s failure, which sounds dumb but if you think about it, that’s how a lot of women act. we see each other as threats first, instead of friends first. there’s a lot of jealousy and insecurity, and it shows through how relationally aggressive girls and women are toward each other. this all plays out in these stan wars, it’s a very interesting psychological concept. we create this competition and strife in our minds to satisfy our thirst for drama, while beyonce and rihanna could easily be somewhere drinking together (remember this? around 1:08, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xv9rJxKta_4). they’re both fly, successful women who actually get along with each other. why can’t we let that be?

    Meanings of rival. One of two or more striving to reach or obtain something that only one can obtain. Well seeing how Beyonce has allll the accalades and awards that.only legends recieve and also a Pop Icon with money, power and respect of the industry. Its clear Beyonce has that something Rihanna is trying to obtain. Meaning she isnt Beyonce rival! Lets break it down. Riri wants Beyonce money. And we all know she doesnt have it! For the last past 6 years Beyonce has appeared on forbes most powerful. Even n 09 she came n as the most powerful musician. Even last year, while on break she was named Billboard most powerful female musician coming at #13 and making more than Riri. Last but not least. Respect. Its not a day go by that a random celebrity praises Beyonce. But i hardly ever hear anybody praising Rihanna. Rihanna praises Beyonce herself. She wants what Beyonce has, so her rival is Katy, and a few others. Another example of rival is one that equals or almost equals another n a particular respect. Well we all know there is no way n hell Rihanna equals Beyonce n any type of fashion or respect! If Beyonce has a rival it would b legends and icons. Beyonce has already achieved something only one can obtain. Like Babyface and Lady Gaga said during her BB tribute, shes more than a popstar or Icon, she represents the the dream and shes already there. Riri wants that. Beyonce has it! So there is NO N HELL Rihanna is THE QUEEN’S rival! I bet The Greats like MJ and WHITNEY just rolled over n their graves over this foolery!

    Rihanna could never sing live nor dance like Beyonce! No shade to Rihanna because she is great at selling singles and appealing to different genres. So chart-wise they are some what rivals, but Beyonce rivals are the greats like Alicia Keys,Gaga and Mariah Carey. Rihanna rivals are Katy Perry, & Britney. All women are great (in their own way)and that’s why they’re always discussed!

    Honestly, the main issue is the fact that they are associated to the same man: JAY-Z. To me that’s the only reason they’ll always be connected to each other.

    Now Rihanna is indeed hotter right now because she is younger, single and controversial. People like to see the dirt therefore Beyonce is “boring” entertainment-wise because she doesn’t use her private life for her carreer…

    But on the long run, Beyonce will ALWAYS be held to another standard because she is a real singer. Her destiny is to be a black Barbra Streisand. Rihanna is gonna be some kind of Donna Summer (No offense to Mrs Donna though, she’s the bomb). Nobody talks about her but everybody knows her 3 or 4 best club songs.

    Rihanna is on her peak this year. Whatever she will do this year will work for her (except that #1 album though) but next year she’ll be 25 and a new era of 15 year olds will be on the comeup. *Willow*

    That’s the whole point of being hot, the next step is to go cold, no matter if you’re Rihanna or Beyonce. Nothing last forever.

    The only chart Rihanna does anything on is billboard 100 when her fans only have to spend $1.29 or call into request a song on the radio because they are either too cheap to pay the $1.29 or don’t think she is worth it. Case and point ppl would buyt the $1.29 rude boy single but not a $.99 RR album. Beyonce’s fans go after the total package and pay the $10.00 for the entire CD hence the reason she has 4#1 albums and sold more with those 4 than Rihanna has with her 6.

    In my opinion there is no rival. beyonce is the best and thats it. rihanna is ok, she makes nice music to listen to from time to time and lets be honest who really buys rihannas music she is a ok artist and the reason she is really a big star is because of jay z, everyone knows that if she didnt have jayz behind her, it wouldnt be all aout rihanna, and beyonce has the whole package, shes classy she has a beautiful voice and she can dance her ass off. beyonce rivals are performers like janet jackson and madonna I feel that beyonce is on a whole other level then rihanna, rihanna rivals are kesha and katy perry

    Beyoncé’s biggest rival, i think not. I think they are very fond of eachother, but as far as friendly competition goes and this silly hypothetical situation, Beyoncé knows the rules….she doesn’t fight a rival, she joins them on a record on their album: alicia keys, lady gaga, mary j blige, now brandy, etc etc etc. Plus how can they be rivals Rhianna puts money in Bey’s family bank account. If I were Beyoncé I’d let Rhianna shine and count the money slowly. Boss!

    No pop star out today can ever be on Queen B’s level. She has got the voice, the looks, the stage presence, the dedication to her craft, and the list goes on and on. She’s one of a kind and I think EVERYONE knows and respects that about her.

    That’s because Rihanna has dropped 7 albums and Beyonce has only dropped 4 as a solo artist.
