Hot Shots: Rihanna Ends ‘777’ Tour / Fails To Match Rival First Week Sales

Published: Thursday 22nd Nov 2012 by David

She came. She drank. She conquered.

After what turned out be an ‘adventurous’ seven days, ROC rebel Rihanna’s ‘777’ Tour finally came to an end last night in NYC.

Taking her lack luster show to Webster Hall, the Pop Princess enjoyed the company of long time mentors Jay Z, Tyty and mastermind Jay Brown with whom she travelled with on the week long tour.

Pics from the party girl below…

This coming chart week, after seven long years, Rihanna will land her first US #1 album with around 240-260k units.

Unimpressive, considering her ever mind blowing reign on a singles front, and considering it remains under the 300k region. A region, easily secured by personal bests scored by the likes Nicki Minaj (Pink Friday – 375,000 units), Lady GaGa (Born This Way– 662,000 units) and Beyonce (B’day – 541,000 units).

To put this into perspective, if ones was to take the highest first week sales figures scored by Riri’s closest rivals were tallied, it’s safe to say she would miss on a Top 5 position. Find out what we mean below:

1. Taylor Swift- ‘Red:‘ 1,208,000 units.

2. Lady GaGa – ‘Born This Way’ – 662,000 units.

3. Beyonce – ‘B’Day‘ – 541,000 units.

4. Nicki Minaj – ‘Pink Friday’ – 375,000 units.

5. Ciara – ‘The Evolution’- 338,000 units.

      THANK YOU!! Many of them were calling ‘4’ a flop when it debut with over 300k . There was no world tour in support of ‘4’ and it still sold over a million in the US and over 2 million worldwide. Far from a flop but now they want to consider Rihanna’s numbers superior, I think not.

    But… Ciara… Her last album sold 37,000 copies in its first week… And didn’t Roman Reloaded only sell 275,000??? And like isn’t the Re-Up sliding down the iTunes chart rather fast?? And Bday… That was like 6 years ago what about Sasha Fierece and 4??? Didn’t Gaga sell that album for 67p on Amazon… Taylor Swift is the only valid one… She sold hers full price not 67p like Gaga… If your gonna bring an album down please use valid criticisms…

    • MCThePlaceToBe November 22, 2012

      You clearly can’t read honey. They compared personal bests and the fact remains that even at HER best Rihanna can’t match the bests of the other girls. ALL of the albums mentioned were released in this decade so there is no excuse.
      If Rihanna was as big as you say she is, she’d be selling like B did in 06 but she’s not. Actually scratch that, her first week numbers can’t even hold a light to the s*** that B got for 4.

      • Igottatalkaboutthislifeasiseeit November 22, 2012

        I feel bad for you ignorant suckasss! Cearly the time is different – with each year that passes album sales get lower, especially in urban music. If you want to talk personal best put it all out there. You put her in an uneven playing field… But u didn’t count those #1 singles, did u? Because nann n**** on that list is touching her.

      • MUSICISME November 22, 2012

        You clearly dont understand the musical climate HONEY… While Rihanna’s opening sales are on the rise, everyone elses are on the fall, Nicki is about to FLOP this week, Beyonce had neither great album nor single succes with her last album, Ciara cannot get a single hit and Gaga, I mean does anyone even care for her anymore…

        The fact is, while Rihanna may never have the best opening week sales, over a long term she sells well while breaking singles records, while most of the artists listed cannot shift albums, like Ciara, or there multiple singles make little chart impact… Like Nicki or Beyonce… Musical times have changed, Even the greats cannot attain the musical sales they once did, Like old Xtina who scored her worst opening sales yet… Her sales get worse and worse but no comment is made…

        Urban sales arent what they used to be, ask Usher or Kelly Rowland, Ne Yo or Ciara….

        Manage your arguments well…

    Rihanna’s first week sales is the highest in her career. She’s winning in the end, when Beyonce’s albums keep getting lower and lower with first week sales. #oop

    Rih-Rih has longevity

  33. Girrl November 22, 2012

    Rihanna has NEVER been a big 1st week seller that’s why we’re happy that she is outdoing herself. Don’t forget all the people’s sales she has beaten:
    Ciara (who made herself a rival by dissing her)
    Brandy
    Kelly
    Christina
    Ne-yo
    Keyshia cole
    Nicki’s reup sales
    And on and on

    Plus don’t forget she always has hits from her albums which guarantees longevity. No matter how u slice it Rihanna is winning.

    I am sure the album will top the GLOBAL chart tho, with over 500.000 in the first week. And go to sell GLOBALLY more than 6 million, just like ‘LOUD’.

    Because Rihanna is a GLOBAL superstar, unlike some of these 12-year-old CUNTry singers you mentioned. ***caugh*** Tayor Swift ***caugh***

Rihanna is now tied with a legend, Madonna and her name will be up there with legends for having the most #1 singles and it makes your blood boil. Poor them while their fav is getting worst over the years, Rihanna is getting better. Lets talk about what Ciara is doing now because we all know the trick can’t sell jack,all she knows how to do is flop. Why is she even mentioned with Rihanna? Get that Rihanna buys her singles crap outta here,if it was that easy so many artists would have just as much #1s

    Before you all start partying, you must wait until after Black Friday to see if Taylor Swift’s fans dont snatch that wig off y’alls victory… I agree with Sam Rihanna is suppose to have all this following and she can only come up with that #. Rihanna needs some tips from Taylor Swift and if Rihanna gets it she want keep that spot cause she is coming too her end. Rihanna’s head has gotten way too big and it’s time for her to really get a dose of reality… She still is not talented, popularity is not talent and she is the poster child for that statement… IMAGE..

    • mobwife: life is good November 22, 2012

      Well TRAILER Swift has been selling her CD for $5.00 and that will continue through this weekend for BLACK FRIDAY sells I’m sure.

      I think that it’s sick how the “music & media industry MONOPOLY” work to elevate some artists and push others to the side. folks talk about 1ST WEEK SELLS NUMBERS but lets just be honest. If the “music & media industry MONOPOLY” promotes you and your CD constantly and it is released in EVERY KNOWN COUNTRY ON THE SAME DAY then yes, it will sell big numbers worldwide. Not all artists receive that same chance!

  62. Lax November 22, 2012

    Thank Goodness For Insight,,,By People In The Know,,,,
    And not Just By People who’s mind’s are Cloudy with hate for Rih,,,

    On paper, Rihanna releasing her seventh album in seven years would suggest a quantity-over-quality work ethic that’s bound to wear thin. But on “Unapologetic,” Rihanna proves once again that she can set and often raise the bar for modern pop music.

  63. Lax November 22, 2012

    From People with Music Knowledge,,,,
    Amping up on urban, dubstep-leaning R&B and scaling back on the often awkward s** jams that populated the second half of 2011’s “Talk That Talk,” “Unapologetic” is Rihanna’s most confident, emotionally resonant work since 2009’s “Rated R.”

  64. Lax November 22, 2012

    From People with Music Knowledge,,,
    There’s hard-hitting club songs (“Phresh Out The Runway,” “Pour It Up,” the Ginuwine-sampling “Jump”), feel-good dance jams (David Guetta-produced “Right Now,” Chris Brown duet “Nobody’s Business”) and a surprising abundance of heartfelt ballads (lead single “Diamonds,” “Stay” featuring Mikky Ekko, the confessional suite “Love Without Tragedy/Mother Mary” and bonus track “Half Of Me”),,,

  65. Lax November 22, 2012

    From People with Music Knowledge,,,
    These songs
    all of which showcase Rihanna’s voice in ways the listener hasn’t heard before. Like previous Rihanna projects, “Unapologetic” is destined to crank out at least five singles over the next 12 months (or until it’s time for the next album, anyway).

  66. Lax November 22, 2012

    From People With Music Knowledge,,,
    1. Phresh Out The Runway – “How could you be so hood but you’re so f*****’ pop? How could you be so fun and sound like you’re selling rocks?” Rihanna quotes one of her doubting peers in this swaggering, gritty club banger produced by The-Dream and David Guetta. “Unapologetic” is all about shaking up expectations, so opening with a straight-up hip-hop track produced by the biggest name in EDM quickly sets the tone.

  67. Lax November 22, 2012

    From People With Music Knowledge,,,
    2. Diamonds
    As written by dance-pop torch singer du jour Sia Furler, “Diamonds” finds Rihanna doing one of her throatiest, most impassioned vocals to date (and one that seems to be channeling Sia herself) on this inspirational pop ballad. And as a strategic shift from recent singles like “Talk That Talk” and “Cockiness,” “Diamonds” further positions Rihanna in new stylistic categories, lest she settle on one format for too long.

    3. Numb (Featuring Eminem) – The last time Rihanna teamed with Eminem, it was on the massive, emotional “Love The Way You Lie.” This time around, the duo only has the club on its mind on this slow-grinding, Middle Eastern-flavored party track, which opens with Rihanna shrugging, “Ecstasy in the air / I don’t care / Can’t tell me nothin.'”

  70. Lax November 22, 2012

    From People With Music Knowledge,,,
    4. Pour It Up – It’s not just the dudes who can flex their money and love of strippers. Rihanna turns her often-racy Twitter feed into an irresistible, Mike WiLL-produced banger for the ladies, chanting “Pour it up / pour it up / watch it all fall out” over a hypnotic beat and handclaps.Take note, 2 Chainz, Juicy J and the like – Rihanna’s coming after your territory.

    6. Jump – Sure, “Gangnam Style” is the horse-dance craze of 2012, but Ginuwine’s “Pony” has been having quite the cultural renaissance this year, thanks to its key role in the summer blockbuster “Magic Mike” and now this dubstep-ified update from Rihanna. “Jump” is an answer song of sorts to Ginuwine’s 90s classic, adding new verses on top of the existing chorus, which now erupts in a wall-shaking Skrillex-worthy breakdown. “You think I give a damn / but you know who I am / I don’t go around chasing no dude,” Rihanna reassures her conquest.

    7. Right Now (Feat. David Guetta) – Perhaps the only song that adheres to the expected formula carved out by “Loud” and “Talk That Talk,” “Right Now” is a straightforward, four-on-the-floor feel-good anthem for the clubs. Thematically identical and musically similar to Ne-Yo and Calvin Harris’ “Let’s Go,” “Right Now” is exactly what you’d expect from the latest Rihanna-Guetta team-up, and nothing more.

Y’all claim she’s the biggest thing since Jesus but people like Lil Wayne, Taylor Swift, Usher, and 50 cent have had bigger opening weeks than her.

    9. Stay (Feat.

    10. Nobody’s Business (Feat. Chris Brown) – If “Nobody’s Business” featured anyone but Chris Brown, it would still be celebrated as a wonderfully catchy throwback to early-90s club music. But because it’s a duet in which the tumultuous lovers proclaim “you’ll always be the one I want to come home to” and “you’ll always be my baby” for the world to hear, it makes the beyond-complicated circumstances of their history impossible to ignore. Judge for yourself just try to resist the song’s many Michael Jackson-worthy charms.

    From People With Music Knowledge,,,
    11. Love Without Tragedy / Mother Mary – Coming right after “Nobody’s Business,” it’s hard to think that the first half of this seven-minute two-parter is channeling anyone but Chris Brown when Rihanna sings, “You took the best years of my life / I took the best years of your life / Felt love struck me with a knife / I pray that love don’t strike twice.” But just before things get any more somber, the song takes a confessional shift when the “Mother Mary” part kicks in, with Rihanna softly singing, “Mother Mary / I swear I’m gonna change / Mr. Jesus, I’d love to be a queen / But I’m from the left side of an island / Never thought this many people would even know my name.” A deeply personal song sold by Rihanna’s uplifting vocal.

    12. Get It Over With – Taking the tempo down a notch, this dreamy track from James Fauntleroy and Brian Kennedy, who co-wrote half of 2009’s “Rated R,” is a chilled-out, reflective song that finds Rihanna “wondering why you keep thundering / won’t you just f*****’ rain / and get it over with.”

    From People With Music Knowledge,,,
    13. No Love Allowed – Much in the same way that 2010’s “Man Down” saw Rihanna paying tribute to her Barbados heritage with a reggae torch song, “No Love Allowed” takes a similar approach over a bubbly, dubbed-out groove from producer No I.D. “Broken heart was the case / go’on and put him away / He’s the only one one one / I let get the best of me,” she cries to the love police.

    14. Lost In Paradise – Ending things on a somber-but-hopeful note, this bouncy StarGate track finds Rihanna clouded by past heartbreak when she sings, “It may be wrong but it feels right / All my fears are gone tonight / I’m so lost in paradise.” What could otherwise be a forgettable midtempo ballad is saved by frequent tempo drops and interjections of “Bass slap!”

        DAM,,,,,,YALL SO BUSY BEING PISSED OVER WHAT RIHANNA IS DOING THAT YO ASSES ARE SLIPPING, ARENT’ YOU?

  91. SHADE=DENIAL November 22, 2012

    yet she still sells millions!!!

  92. count November 22, 2012

    @enoughalready

    that net # are s***. but she’s all in it. that follows you say are crap. fake and lousy pr trend. forbes stated rihanna has ~7 mil real tweeps. and this is a more real global since she’s not a more US local star. see that US sales actually DON’T MATTER for her. just for “pride”.

    also she’s running long. first week is irrelevant. on the long say 1/2 of her follows are really getting into the full album over time not just singles. perhaps a mil people get cought by radio and grab the album. alltogether you know what you get in numbers.

  93. CHUDDS November 22, 2012

    You silly, silly queens! You guys stay talking about how Rihanna’s albums are rushed, when Beyonce does the same damn thing! She may not release an album every year but I know for a FACT that she said BDay was recorded in less than a month!

    Ciara?! HA! She released that album in what? 06? 07? Didn’t Rihanna release GGGB in 2007? I’m sure she sold way less in the first week, but how many copies did The Evolution sell in the long run? 1 million? Didn’t GGGB almost 3 million in the US and 7 or 8 million WW?

    Didn’t one of Ciara’s albums debut BEHIND Chrisette Michelle (#1) and Miley Cyrus (#2)?! How do you let Chrisette Michelle debut at #1?

    • skintightjeans November 22, 2012

      Chrisette Michelle is a talented b**** though

      • CHUDDS November 22, 2012

        She is VERY talented, don’t get me wrong….I own “I Am” and “Epiphany,” but she isn’t a mainstream artist at all. Ciara was.

      • Lax November 22, 2012

        THEY ALL OR TALENTED SOME MORE TALENTED THEN OTHERS…..REASON BEING RIHANNA IS A TARGET YET RIHANNA’S SINGLES ALONG IS BIGGER THEN MANY PEOPLE ENTIRE CAREERS….

  94. mobwife: life is good November 22, 2012

    Wait, but ADELE not only out lasted but outsold every artists you listed with ’21’ then slayed again when folks went back and picked up the previous release ’19’! I don’t believe either of her CDs sold well during itt’s 1st week….ijs!

    I’m not sure what she is wearing and which one is Tyty the ‘shortie’ to her right? Either Rih is awfully tall or that guy should try out to be a HOBBIT in the next installment of ‘Lord of the Ring’. 🙂

  95. CHUDDS November 22, 2012

    Didn’t Trey Songz latest album debut at #1 selling around 150k in the first week last summer, but hasn’t even hit the 250k mark 3-4 months later? Oh, alright….

  96. Queen Adele + King Bey November 22, 2012

    I can’t wait for Queen Adele and King Bey to come back in 2013 and slap the c** out of this flop h**’s ass.

    King Jay looks smoking hot, though. I love those lips :).

    • zzzzg November 22, 2012

      Beyonce to come back out with some more flops. Ok I can’t wait.

      • Queen Adele + King Bey November 22, 2012

        And I can’t wait for “UnFlopBajanic” to flop just like “Flop That Flop”, “Rihtarded Flop”, “A Flop Like Me”, “Flop of the Sun” and even worse.

        😀 😀 😀 😀 😀

      • CHUDDS November 22, 2012

        Beyonce didn’t flop at all. Don’t do it to yourself. She sold well over one million without a #1 single on the BB100. “Dance For You” is still getting heavy airplay!

      • Lax November 22, 2012

        QUEEN ADELE +BEY THE ONLY REASON YO ASS GOT THE TWO IS BECAUSE ADELE MOPPED THE FLOOR WITH BEYONCE’S ASS TOO, AND TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH JAKE I MEAN ADELE AND BEYONCE ,,,,WHY IS THE OFFICIALS CHARTS SHOWING THAT RIHANNA SOLD MORE THEN BEYONCE DID LAST YEAR??????CIARA AND NICKI THE ONLY ONES WHO BEAT HER ON THAT LIST WAS GAGA AND TAYLOR AND I SEE THEY FORGOT TO POST ADELE BECAUSE THEY HATES THAT ADELE SHOWED BEYONCE COUNTY ASS ALL THE WAY UP ALSO AND RIHANNA SOLD MORE THEN BEYONCE DID AND THAT IS WHY RIHANNA IS HIGHER IN SELLS ON THE OFFICIALS CHARTS AND WORLD GLOBAL CHAR’TS SELL ,,,BETTA ASK SOMEBODY…

    • zzzzg November 22, 2012

      Nope just like how 4 had no massive smashes.Like who run the flop

      • Queen Adele + King Bey November 22, 2012

        You’ve just proved my point.

        ‘4’ sold 2.600.000 million CD albums and 250.000 DVD’s worldwide WITHOUT the support of ANY massive hit songs. Unlike Rihanna who had 2 international smash hits and still sold around the same level.

        In other words, IMAGINE if Beyonce decided to load her next album with a few radio-friendly hits???? What will happen?????

      • Lax November 22, 2012

    Happy thanksgiving everyone!!!!! Sam please STFU. Stop being so bitter. First week sales are not everything. You worship some of the biggest flops known to the industry yet have the nerve to try and drag Rih when she is amongst the very few who can actually still sale. She is a slow runner she always sales in the end and stop trying to start Stan wars ….It’s pathetic. Anyway on a positive note am I the only one pumped about this year and next year for music?Rih Rih, Bey and Gaga all at the same time? So many concerts to go too. *Fist pumps*

    Never mind all that. Sales don’t equate great music. Can we just pay attention to the fact te album is terrible? If the h** got a number 1 album and sold millions with GOOD music then I would be very impressed…

    • i loled November 22, 2012

      i get ya but let me use your words to make you think about that:
      .
      .
      she got a #1 album even with terrible music.
      .
      .
      you mad?

      • prettigurlrockD Bitchess November 22, 2012

        I can comment anywhere I want. It’s a blog. Not a Rihanna site. Let me remind you, b**** that I have given rihanna her credit where needed. The album is terrible. Sales do NOT mean great music. The only reason she’s reaching number 1 on billboard 200 is becuz Diamonds is a SMASH right now and sheer luck cuz she definitely couldn’t get a number 1 album before to save her dear life. And I will agree it’s a good song. The rest of the album though? S***. And that’s my opinion. And if most of the navy thinks so, it’s not too far from the truth. Obviously only one mad is the commenters replying. Pressed much? FOH.

      • i loled November 22, 2012

        i didn’t say you shouldn’t comment. and i’m questioning the album too. it’s not as good as people think it is. even diamonds was crap right from the start. but it’s the mega interesting buzz these days and they do sound and psyche for alota the audiences and that works.

    • CHUDDS November 22, 2012

      You stay on Rih’s posts though. Obsessed much b****?

    • Lax November 22, 2012

      prettigurl while you might be right but do Explain how RIHANNA’S ,,,, Music is good and Memorable Enought to get 12 Hits AT AGE 24 YRS YOUNG??????

      SOONER then BEYONCE Who’s Supposed to be the
      “Best Artist” In the Game BEYONCE SHE CAN DO IT ALL WHY THEN,,,,IS SHE DRAGGING In the Hits DEPARTMENS AND THE LIFE LONG ACHIEVENMENT DEPARTMENTS OF MUSIC,,,
      LIKE QUEEN OF POP FOR THE LAST 20 YEARS FOR RIHANNA WHY DIDN’T BEYONCE WIN THAT GOD KNOWS SHE HAS DROPPED MORE ALBUMS IN TOTAL THEN RIHANNA HAS,,,,

      LIKE OVER 20MILLION SOLD IN THE UK
      LIKE BEING NAMED THE YOUNGEST TO EVER GET 12 HITS AT HER AGE

      WHY IS THAT EXPLAIN THAT TO ME AND THE NAVY AND THE CASE WILL REST FOR THE JURY TO DECIDE IT,,,,,

    Why are these b****** (Navy, Hive, etc….) pressed? Its like, Rihanna is getting her first #1 album and 12 #1 in one week so can we congratulate her and move on? Yes, her personal best thus far doesn’t match some people’s worst so lets just keep it moving.

  109. Theezy November 22, 2012

    Bottom line is this, Sam has nothing else to say now that she will have a no. 1, so he will resort to sale comparisons, which in the end is pathetic. How about Nicki’s Romans Reloaded sales? Sam picks and choses facts to throw out without painting the whole picture.

    But that makes him a good blogger. A pathetic, obsessive human, but a good blogger.

    Get your coins, Sam. Get your coins.

    It is not about first week sales, unless you can do over a million and most black acts do not do that. Madonna, Sade etc have had huge albums NOT DEBUT AT NUMBER 1. EVEN IN THE UK, JESSIE J MEGA SELLING DEBUT only went in at number 2. Then, Rita ORA goes to number 1 with 40 k in one week, Cher lloyd ( xfactor usa today ) debuted at number 4 with 64k in her first week. Who sold more between Rita Ora and Cher lloyd. Xtina stripped debuted at number 3, with first week sales bigger than most number ones. And what? And WW – unapologetic will outsell Taylor, Beyonce, Nicki etc. So there!

    She won’t let up.

    Sam you tried it. You mentioned all the roc nation people, hoping it will bounce on Flop 35 year old Rita Ora. But the only man that counts is that white man: HE IS HER BOSS! HE is the president of Island Def Jam and he has been working at that label for more than a decade,. His name is Steven Bartles and HE TRAVELLED WITH RIH ON THE 777 TOUR. F*** jay z and roc nation. She does not need them, look at those n**** hanging off her nuts, because NO ONE ON THEIR LABEL IS A HIT. Rihanna is mega A list, she has the President of her label ( who is a white, educated man ) traveling on tour with her. Only A list can get that.

    So fall back. ROC nation did not master mind s***. I have noticed you never ever mention Def jam., Always trying to make it a roc nation thing. If she was signed to Roc nation, she would be like Rita Ora and Bridget kelly. SHE IS ON DEF JAM AND THE TEAM AT DEF JAM – including former CEO LA RIED and the late Shakir stewart MADE HER. ROC NATION ARE JUST HER REPS. No doubt, as she becomes a woman, she will fire them and hire white men with BRAINS to manage her. Just like the white man standing next to her. I know it was his idea to do the tour. He is white and educated and we all know, educated white men are better than hood goons, like the three standing near her.

    • wrinkle flop ora November 22, 2012

      HER SIGNATURE is on Def jam’s contract. She cannot fire DEF JAM,. SHE CAN FIRE HER MANAGER AND AGENTS AT ANY TIME. So many actors fire their agents and usher and Beyonce fired their parents as managers. Rih will get rid of ROC NATION.

      • wrinkle flop ora November 22, 2012

        JLO fired Benny Medina AFTER HE MADE HER A STAR. It will be done, Then that will be IT FOR ROC NATION.

    THE WHITE MAN STANDING NEXT TO RIHANNA IS HER BOSS. HIS NAME IS STEVEN BARTELS AND HE is the president of Island Def Jam. He was on teh 777 tour is with his biggest and most important act.

    Are u serious Sam?? Such a hater! Rihanna at least has a consistency when it comes to album sales..and her fan base grew from album to albums. She may not be a mega first week seller such as Taylor or Gaga but she still managed to put out platinum plus albums (asides Music of the Sun) where is your favorite? Kelly Rowland = major flop, Ciara = on the verge of getting drop if her next album doesn’t live up to expectation; since the last two bombs worst than Baghdad. No one dare to do 1 album per year without fear of over exposure since Elvis, Frank Sinatra and the Beatles and that was generations ago. Rihanna progress musically each albums and hate her or love her…she’s here to stay!!! Unapologetic out now…cop that !!!

    Sam this post was pathetic. Comparing her to past album sales as far back as Ciara’s The Evolution? Times have changed musically and how people buy music has now changed. I dont really see Ciara selling those numbers anymore. I dont see her getting another #1 album. What is unimpressive is the numbers that Basic Instinct brought in, or even Fantasy Ride. I’ve seen a lot of artists on Ri’s level who have sold less but have gotten a number 1 album, especially in those quiet weeks.
    Also like you said Sam she is stronger in her single sales than her album sales, so the Unapologetic sales are impressive and is an achievement!!!!!!!!

  130. JAKE November 23, 2012

    LOL @ JAYS FACE

  131. Anne November 23, 2012

    Everyone’s doing a lot of research but the BOTTOM LINE is everyone listed above except Ciara is still doing good. Bey AND Rihanna both have good careers whether they fans want to admit it about the other or not. When it comes to sales and commercial success they are comepetitive but when it comes to talent, everyone knows Beyonce has no competition from Rihanna in that department.
