Rihanna’s ‘Talk That Talk’ Certified Platinum

RIHANNA THAT GRAPE JUICE DOT NET Rihannas Talk That Talk Certified Platinum

While the VMAs may have gone some way to sully Rihanna’s public image, it’s safe to say they may have her given her somewhat of an early Christmas present.

For, perhaps in response to her smoking set at the event, her latest LP ‘Talk That Talk’ has finally been certified Platinum, almost one year since release.

Details below…

Ultimate Rihanna reports:

“Talk That Talk”, her 6th studio album, has been certified platinum in the United States, selling over 1 million copies since its release in November, 2011.

This is her 5th consecutive album to go platinum there! The album has sold over 3.2 million copies worldwide.”

OH YES Rihannas Talk That Talk Certified PlatinumOH YES1 Rihannas Talk That Talk Certified Platinum

Well done Rihanna!

Marking the best piece of news sent her way in a while, congratulations are definitely in order for both she and the folk over at Def Jam and Roc Nation.

Reason being?

Considering the project has only spawned 1 US #1 single, to surpass sales of and ship 1 million copies is a feat we’d say stands as one of her best.

We only hope that with album #7 on the way, Rihanna takes the time to work on the voice many are still ‘unsure’ of seven years into her glowing career.

Like, while she’ll never be Beyonce or Rita Ora, wouldn’t it be great if Rihanna the talent lived up to the hype generated by Rihanna the chart topper?

A Rihanna, present in performances like these:

And absent in outings like these:

    Yusssss #suckHERcockiness ….

    It’s hard to deny that rihanna has significantly improved as an artist, vocally she’s hitting notes that nobody new she was capable of (see Umbrella performance in France), and she’s making use of her unique tone in a good way (see Run This Town and POC at paralympic closing ceremony).

    I really hope that the 7th studio album is something different, I’m tired of this bull s*** electro pop on the radio ….

      TRUE…. HOWEVER!

      Music of the Sun was made in barbados with C class producers and was basically a demo….
      It Debuted with 65k first week

      rita ora Ora has production from the Dream, The Runners, Neyo, Drake, Will.I.Am
      she has production from the biggest names in music Yet!

      her album debuted with 44k whilst being promoted the f*** out of rihanna was never promoted that agressivly not even in the Loud era!

      The Point is Rita is will be and has been a Flop and you will deal.

    You are right, Sam, Rih will never be Rita Ora. Cos, unlike Rita Ora, rih has never in her career had a single cancelled .

    BTW the reason why it took long, is because the music industry is in dire straights.
    All her LP’s go platinum in America – f*** a number 1
    TTT was already multi platinum anyhow. 7 yrs in, multi platinum LP, 2 multi platinum singles. YUP! Someone is not getting drop.

    Rira ora: Cher Lloyd released her single the same month at Rita in the uSA – Cher has now sold 1.2 million copies of that song in America.

    Rita Ora’s LP is 25 on the uk itunes chart, and according musicweek. com it is not in the UK top 10 album chart. How we do is not in the top 10 either.

      I know, it’s pathetic. Beyoncé just promoted 4 for 3 months, without jumping on dance badwagon, pregnant, selling R&B songs, and it sold 1.2kk in US alone. She wasn’t even trying that hard. She’s in the industry for over 15 years! On other hands, Rihtard still is promoting her album after a year of release, had a bunch of generic dance songs, her biggest hit to date, Twitter followers, discounts etc, and she struggles to sell 1 million. I can’t.

        On its first day of sales, 4 shipped more than 10,000 copies in Poland,[126] more than 120,000 copies in Brazil,[129] and sold around 42,000 in the United Kingdom on its first day itself.[190] According to The Official Charts Company data, 4’s opening day sales were more than the combined sales of its three nearest challengers, being Adele’s 21 (2011), Lady Gaga’s Born This Way (2011), and Adele’s first studio album 19 (2008) for that day.[190] After a complete week of sales, 4 debuted atop the UK Albums Chart on July 4, 2011, with first-week sales of 97,211,[191] In its second week of release, 4 remained atop the chart, selling 44,929 copies.[192] In 2011 it was the 18th best selling album in the UK, selling 450,000 copies.[193] It was also the fourth biggest selling R&B / hip hop album of 2011 in the UK. As of July 2012 4 has sold 870.000 copies in the UK[194] For the week commencing July 4, 2011, 4 opened at number two on the Australian ARIA Albums chart, giving Knowles her highest ever chart debut on that chart,[195] and started at number one on its urban chart.[196] 4 debuted at number three on the Canadian Albums Chart selling 8,700 copies in its first week,[197] and at number two in France selling 12,393 copies in its first week.[198] According to the Japanese music charting site Oricon, the album debuted at number ten, selling 18,984 copies for the week ending July 11, 2011.[199]
        In the United States, 4 debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, with first-week sales of 310,000 copies.[200] This gave Knowles her fourth consecutive solo debut at the top of the chart and makes her the second female artist and third artist overall, to have her first four studio albums debut atop the Billboard 200.[200] 4’s first-week sales became Knowles’ lowest sales start with a studio album to date.[200] However, Keith Caulfield of Billboard magazine commented that the album was not released during the festive season and that Knowles was so far lacking a hit single, which could help explain the album’s softer entry.[200] Its lead single, “Run the World (Girls)” peaked at No. 29 on the Billboard Hot 100 – the first time the first single from a Knowles’ studio set has missed the top ten. He finally added that “4’s bow is pretty big for 2011. It marks the third-largest sales week of the year, after the [number one] bows of Lady Gaga’s Born This Way and Adele’s 21.”[200] 4 became the ninth solely-numerical titles (including roman numerals) to have reigned since the chart launched as a weekly survey the week of March 24, 1956.[201] In its second week, the album remained at number one on the Billboard 200, despite an 63% sales decrease, selling 115,000 copies. It hence became the first album by Knowles to top the Billboard 200 albums chart for more than one week.[202] On August 1, 2011, the album was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), for shipments of one million copies to retail stores.[203] For the week ending September 10, 2011, 4 fell to number 12 on the US Billboard 200,[204] after having spent eight consecutive week in the top 10 positions.[205] However, after Knowles’ performance at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards, 4 registered an 87% rise in sales, allowing it to re-enter the top 10 of the US Billboard 200 at number seven, selling 39,000 copies for the week ending September 17, 2011.[206] As of February 2012, 4 has sold 1,658,700 copies in the United States.[207]

        @Blue and haters….
        This life is what you make it. Not matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends – they’ll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, somg go. The ones that stay with you through everything – they’re your true best friends. Don’t let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they’ll come and go too. And babve, I hate to say it, most of them – actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can’t give up becuase if you give up, you’ll never find your soul mate. You’ll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.

    It is true. Beyonce sales were only juiced up cos she is more known in America, she is not that big international artist y’all think she is.

    I am hafl swedish and many swedes do not know who beyonce ad jay z are. Rihanna is tabloid fodder is Sweden. Why? Rihanna makes pop / dance and that appeals to the worlwide crowd more than RNB Hence why Mariah is bigger than whiteney. Also, Rih is tall and slim and Europeans like that body type more than beyonce’s fat texan body.

      Okay. Beyoncé’s singles didn’t hit #1, but 4 still managed to sell as much as some basic b******’s albums full of generic dance songs. BUT, which was the last R&B song to top the charts? I really don’t remember. I think it was Empire State of Mind. It wasn’t like Beyoncé released dance songs and they failed, they were all R&B. As far as I know, R&B isn’t relevant on radios since 2010. So it isn’t a big deal that a R&B song didn’t score top 10 hit these days. Speaking of it, where are Birthday Flop, Talk That Flop and Cockiness? I don’t see them anywhere, maybe they’re on the bottom of the charts, but I won’t look that deep. Sorry :/ But for a pop/dubstep like You Da Flop is a problem. It failed to get a top 10 everywhere, even payola didn’t help it. What did happen to Where Have You Flop? You all were saying that it’d go #1 after American Idol, but it didn’t go anywhere. LOL. Rihtard released dance songs, but they didn’t save her album. I can’t. You know it’s the damn truth.
      I don’t see Rihtard scoring a top 10 hit with an urban sound, she needs to jump on the bandwagon or she won’t be relevant. Actually, she can’t score a f****** hit without calling someone to jump on her track. Picture the difference? Beyoncé can do whatever she wants because her name alone sells. On other hand, Rihtard needs to jump on trends, change her persona to score her hits. DEAD. That’s why her albums failed to get the #1 spot and struggle to get Platinum.

      Dangerously in Love debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 chart, with sales of 317,000 copies according to Nielsen SoundScan.[31] Although the album’s first-week sales failed to match that of Survivor which sold 663,000 units in its debut in 2001, Knowles earned the highest among Destiny’s Child members’ solo albums by best weeks: Rowland sold 77,000 copies for Simply Deep in its strongest week while Williams earned 17,000 copies for Heart to Yours in its top week.[31] The album has been certified four-time platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).[60] Dangerously in Love remains as Knowles’ best-selling album to date,[61] with cumulative sales of 4,825,000 copies in the United States as of March 2012 combined with it single the album sold 23 million in the United state alone.[62]
      Internationally, Dangerously in Love had similar commercial reception. On July 12, 2003, Knowles became the first female artist (and the fifth artist ever) to top both the singles—with “Crazy in Love”—[63] and albums chart simultaneously in the United States and the United Kingdom, following The Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, Rod Stewart, and Men at Work. As of June 2011, the album has sold over 1,300,000 copies in the United Kingdom,[64] and the British Phonographic Industry has since certified the album double platinum.[65] Dangerously in Love is the 15th best-selling album of 2003 in the United Kingdom.[66] In Australia, it reached number two; the album was certified triple platinum by the Australian Recording Industry Association for sales of 210,000 copies.[67] In 2003, Dangerously in Love was the 51st best-selling album in Australia, and the 74th the following year.[68][69] To date, the album has sold more than 15million copies worldwide.[70]

      And yet…….ROC are not done: She will be doing show in Tampa with 2 chains – 2 chainz had a number LP and hits on billboard – he was up for a RAP VMA. You put this basic b**** on the bill 2chainz?

      Then she is doing another radio promo tour in the Boston area, as well as a show.

      WHY?????????????????????????????????????? THIS s*** HAS BEEN GOING ON SINCE JANUARY – SHE HAS BEEN COMING TO OUR COUNTRY EVERY WEEK ALL YEAR – WHY ARE THEY FORCING THE USA TO BUY THIS GIRLS MUSIC?

    The Flop-Hive is delusional. Beyonce’s first single was NOT an R&B song but some overproduced, generic, repetitive, mind grinding reggae nonsense called “Run the world (girls)” and that s*** did not even scratch platinum. Nope, sorry, no excuses for Bey not having any single Hot 100 hit. Kelly Rowland did not have a Hot 100 top ten hit but she hit platinum, what is Bey’s excuse?

      actually it was a euro techno dance beat / track. Another sad attempt for beyonce to plat catch up to rihanna, who has been doing eurodance since please dont stop the music 5 years ago – before america got on the dance trend.

      most of the fashion blogs, make fun of beyonce trying to copy rihanna uber fashion. Even trying to wear deisgners, rihanna wears, without accepting the fact that, she does not have the body for them.

      beyonce, in 2009, was trying to do edgy like rihanna, much to the amusement of the fashion crowd.

      I cannot wait to see what sound and style beyonce comes with in 2013 – she is now in a tricky situation.

    People are also forgetting to mention that Talk That Talk had very little promo and it did well.

    We Found Love 4x Platinum
    Where have you been Platinum
    You Da one Platinum
    Talk That Talk – Single Gold
    Birthday Cake Gold
    Talk That Talk – Album Platinum

    Island DefJam is happy with these numbers because the album with its singles has recouped their money with little effort and the irony in all of this is Talk That Talk is still charting where as 4closure has made its exit on pretty much most if not all the charts World Over.

    The Flop-Hive will have to deal with the fact that even LOUD is still selling better than 4closure and that was released some ages ago.

    Sony made a huge investment in 4closure, they planned out a barrage of music videos, concerts…etc and the album was supposed to span 2 years, it barely lasted 6 months. 4closure was a disaster, DEAL.

      Good work coming with numbers. Barry weis runs def jam, he will be happy. TTT was made in hotels all over Europe – explains why it was rushed. Clearly, you are well versed on how the business world works, these fools resort to verbal abuse and petty name calling. They fail to look at the numbers from the eyes of the CEO’S who sign the checks and give the pink slips.

      They use the she cannot sing card, but, singing has nothing to do with the music business. Sad, but true.

      Your last paragraph made me laugh. It was hugely promoted ( 4) extensively worked on with a barrage of producers, and yes, it was meant to be the DIL. Not only did it crash and burn, but she could not a single number 1. Even one. I assumed we run the world was number 1 – it was so big budget – the video, that VH1 docu’ . It is sad how beyonce just fell apart like this. At least Britney flopped ( even though she outsells many ) cos she went nuts and lost her hunger and passion.

      Beyonce, was on fire, I remember at the billboard, she was ‘ honored’ by michelle obama, all these legend 2011 was meant to be her year. Can u see why her new project is getting Rita Ora to take out Rihanna? Had Rih not taken over, it would of been about Beyonce

        Mind you singles are not free so add up the figures.

        With WFL being 4x platinum and two other songs going platinum with two other songs Gold and a Platinum album (Talk That Talk) VS just a platinum album (4closure), who’s numbers look better if you add it all up? I’ll wait.

        And please do not also run away from the FACT that TTT has outsold 4closure Worldwide, BeyFLOP only sold more than Rihanna in the USA, everywhere else it underwhelmed.

        in total, for 2011 to 2012 Rihanna has sold 11 million records for that year – and counting.She is still selling from TTT.

        Beyonce has sold from 2011 to 2012 – about 4, may 4. 5 – maybe 5 million records from the four album.

        11 million VS 4 million – yup! Rihanna has slayed her, they went to head and Rihanna one, on all fronts.

        Beyonce is getting old and now peaked. Her daddy ( the brains behind her career ) is no longer in the picture – i feel that has cost her big time. she has competition from a younger, prettier black girl and people are tiring of her of 15 – last 10 being overexposed. 2001 She was everywhere.

        It was gonna happen sooner or later. Only madonna, the beatles, MJ are acts that will on top till they stop making music, Beyonce does not have that one of a kind talent that they have, hence why they have outsold her and some on the list are dead.

        I do not think beyonce will even get to 100 milion solo records sold.
        This is why she has invested her time and money in Rita Ora, she is hoping Rita can take the shine of Rih, to make it easier for her to at least get her black girl crown back.

    It does not help that Rihanna is younger, sexier and better looking. Back in 2007? Perez hilton use to hate Beyonce with a passion; he loved Rihanna. He said that Beyonce was jealous of Rihanna because she is youner, hotter and prettier. I did not undertstand what he meant? Much more clearer now.

    Also, people keep saying she can’t sale albums, but her biggest selling album is almost triple platinum, and the one after that is almost double platinum. The rest are all platinum, and the other is gold, but that was when she first came out. She has sold albums. She may not do what certain folks want her too. But she goes platinum and has hit singles. For a person that complains about her lack of talent, Sam sure doesn’t have an issue making her the topic of discussion in every post. She’s good for those pockets huh… Talk about Rita Ora and others and see how many care…… If you’re tired of no talent artists, then talk about some artists that have actual talent, you don’t because they don’t make u money hypocrite…

    Why are Slutonce’s fans super concerned about Rihanna’s sales? Of cource Thiefonce should have bigger sales because before solo, she was part of a group that has sold well. Rihanna had to do it as a solo act from the start.

    Currently, here are the worldwide sales of both artists:
    Whoreonce: IASF: 7M, 4closure: 2.1M
    Rihanna: Loud: 8M, TTT: 3M

    In effect, in terms of current global stature, they are the same, although Copyonce has been on constant decline since her debut as a solo artist (from 11M to 7M to 2M), while Rihanna has yet to stabilize her sales (it’s up or down dependent on the album 1m to 3M to 7M to 3M to 8M to 3M – a testament that she is still evolving). People are getting tired of one of them, one who had to resort to fake baby gimmicks.

    Rihanna’s sales figures are a joke. She averages platinum per album…despite it costing MILLIONS more to record and promote them. I’d be willing to bet that she doesn’t earn Def Jam a real profit from her s***, which is probably why they put out a new album on her every 9 months and she stays touring. If Rihanna dared to take a year off, she’s be in debt to everybody.

    Her fans swear she’s some kind of “it”-girl, but I’ve never known any hot pop star who takes this damn long to sell a million US and not much more after. Even Loud — the album her fans like to boast about — has yet to see multiplatinum status.

    She may as well just record free standing singles and abandon the album model.

    You people really can’t compare TTT to 4. Like seriously, you really can’t. TTT had how many hits and it’s just now reaching platinum.? She should have at least reached that status in a months time. Maybe even less. I would rather ride with someone who had no hits yet, she still did good in the first week sales than someone who had hits like a mofo yet, she still failed in the first week. You stains really need a valid argument. If not just congratulate rih and keep it moving. Congrats, I guess. Even though that’s not really something to celebrate.

    We just have to give credit where its due!! Albums are not selling like they used to these days..there’s only a handful of artists that reached platinum status and a few multi platinum (i.e. Adele, Taylor Swift and etc). Rihanna consistently putting out platinum albums and hit singles and still at the prime age of 24!! She accomplished so and still got a long way to go! Much love and respect to her!

    The fact that you flops STAY bringing Beyonce into a Rihanna post as much as Sam stans and posts about her on TGJ shows how pitiful you all are and insecure as stans. Never do you see on a Beyonce post a Beyonce stan bringing up Rihanna for comparison. Its always the Fake-vy bringing up and bashing Beyonce to validate their illegitimate reciepts.

    But if i may add, this is Rihanna’s 6th album and your comparing it to Beyonce’s 4th. Why? Beyonce’s first 3 albums have each outsold every album Rihanna has ever released. 4, which has arguably stopped selling, has still even outsold TTT, with no hit single, whereas TTT has had a #1, two top 10s, and two #20s. And please lets not use the bullshyt excuse that Beyonce’s name only carried her album. If thats the case, then Michael Jackson’s “Michael” album wouldve sold millions, just by the fact that his name is printed on the damn packaging. 4 was an R&B, whether you want to except it or not. That along with no hits singles caused its “lackluster” performance, according to BEYONCE standards and BEYONCE standards ONLY. If it were any other irrelevant brawd selling the name numbers 4 did, you b****** wouldnt be saying a damn thing. But the fact that Beyonce has the Fake-vy stans so pressed and threatened, her numbers are always brought up. Its like you all secretly stan for Beyonce but just wont come out the closet. Man the f*** up.

    10 month to go just platinum is a flop. No record label on earth spends millions to record and promote one of its artists and is satisfied with their album taking damn near a year to see this basic certification. Realistically, with the hit songs and promotion she’s had, TTT should be no less than 4x platinum US and 8-9 million WW. 1 million US and 2.5-3 million WW after nearly a whole calendar year is a fail. And looky, she’s recording yet ANOTHER album to try and cover this debacle.

    Stop acting like the girl is “winning” when she barely breaks even. Bringing up other artists isn’t deflecting from the fact that number of whole albums RIhanna sells is mediocre. She only exists to be the face for a song that someone else wrote. A song that anyone can sing. She’s the definition of a “singles artist”, and no one makes money from singles artists except for the songwriters. If she didn’t tour, she’d be broke.

    Some albums have sold in a month what it’s taken her all year to do. I refuse to be snowed by the “digital era” excuse. If your album isn’t at least double platinum, then it wasn’t a real success. And 3 million worldwide is far from impressive either. She should be over, at or at least nearing the 10 million mark, considering all the territories this album was promoted to.

    This whole era has been poor. When you clear out the smokescreen, Rihanna’s sales figures never match the hype.

      And the problem is that Bey thinks everything she copies istays undiscovered. You know what, i just watched today the making of of “hard” by RIHANNA and i saw so much Bey has copied for her Video in “Run the World” Riri was the first one who used flags With her first letter of her name and Bey copied her and she copied many other things …..these typ of things should be not stay undiscovered, it would be unfair though

    Congrats to Rihanna, I dunno why people just can’t be happy for her instead of insulting her and just hurling abuse. People should be happy that a black female is on top in the music industry. As for you stans who love to compare Rihanna and Beyonce – they have no beef with each other so I do not know why a bunch of people who they DO NOT NOT KNOW are arguing over who is a flop and who isn’t…
