‘Scream & Stay’: Britney Spears & Rihanna Dominate UK R&B Chart

fa6753f56cddbbf1029203860e59cda5 Scream & Stay: Britney Spears & Rihanna Dominate UK R&B Chart

Let’s face it, as far as loyalty goes- very few can say they show up and show out for their favorite act in the way ‘Team Britney’ does for Britney Spears.

Ensuring her last album ‘Femme Fatale’ topped the Billboard 200 with 276,000 units upon release, her fans continued to put their money where their mouths are with the release of her Will.i.am forged duet, ‘Scream & Shout‘.

Now, in enjoying the fruits of their digital labor, yesterday saw them take the cut to all new heights in the UK.

Chart check below…

Believe it or not, ‘Shout‘ now sits at #1 on UK R&B chart and #3 on the nation’s overall tally, one spot down from last week’s position.

Marking her first #1 in the country since 2004′s ‘Everytime‘, Will & Brit‘s chart win comes two weeks after Grammy nominated songwriter Elijah Blake revealed that he had begun working on the icon’s 8th studio album alongside ‘Telephone’ producer DarkChild and the singer herself.

Elsewhere on the charts, Rihanna‘s ‘Stay‘ comes in at #2 on an R&B tip, while her Platinum single ‘Diamonds’ snaps at its heels at #3. Meanwhile, on the ‘main’ chart, ‘Stay’ sits at #4- making her the second Roc Nation act to score two or more UK Top 5 singles from an album released this year, after ‘Crazy Girl’ singer, Rita Ora.

    R&B needs to reinvent itself before it is left behind completely. Like maybe incorporate some reggae elements or sing about more current things. The 90s, 00s are not going to listen to music that they cannot relate to.

    And also I can´t believe what a crap taste the UK puplic has developed these last years when it comes to singles. Ok, Diamonds is a good song even if a nocalist sings it. But how can it be that the mess that is S&S is the most succesful Britney single in the UK since 2004???? Really, most of Britney songs are not good, but this mess??? Any Britney song is better than this generic s*** this William guy created

    Why are people complaining, Britney and Rihanna have made the RnB charts relevant again. Without them charting on those charts, the RnB charts would be the FLOPnB charts (full of FLOPS). You should be sending them a gift basket for making those charts relevant again.

    Now all we need is a way to get Katy Perry to chart on the FLOPnB charts and it’ll be fully relevant again.

    don’t act simple. it would be needless because the chart would be nothing but another pop chart.

    unlike the pop charts, the majority of the artists on the u s r & b charts can really sing (which is why many don’t make it on the pop charts).

    i don’t know who’s checkin’ for briitney on the u k r & b chart but it definitely ain’t the case in the u s.

    I also see that the other problem is African Americans are ignorant about music other than their Beyonce hood rat anthems. Scream and Shout deserves to chart high on the UK charts because it follows a European culture of music. The dance, electro pop type of music has been a part of European culture for a long time, there have been many successful DJs who’ve done this type of music even when RnB was popular in the 90s.

    You have Swedish House Mafia, you had Darude, Basement Jaxx etc. The only reason you think it’s crap is because you’re ignorant. There’s nothing wrong with Electro Dance music, it has been a part of European culture for a long time, people embraced your trashy ghetto, baby momma problems RnB music in the 90s, it was a part of your culture, now that they’re embracing a different culture you call it trash. Simply shows how ignorant you guys are.

    you really don’t have any idea how crazy you sound when you say african americans are ignorant about music. simply because african americans can’t relate to a thin or mediocre voice buried under a lot of loud ass studio electrical instruments doesn’t have anything to do with ignorance. the best electro dance song i’ve ever heard is timberland and hilson’s ‘the way i are’.

    you can talk sh!t about r & b but it’s doubtful that this electro mess will be around even half as long a
    r & b.

    i hope i’m right because when the britneys and rihannas start besting real singers like tamar (who is slipping fast) the music industry has really gone to hell.

    Wow the hate black people get on this site for simply being black SKIN color. Why is it necessary to pin-point black people for not liking S&S? It doesn’t matter if it follows the trend of Electro-pop/dance of “European culture” it still isn’t R&B so take your racist ass somewhere else with this comment @Mrs. Robyn Brown.

    Som e of you on this site are just….wow……make me lose faith in humanity as a whole. Why must we discriminate on people’s race, ethnicity, skin color, sexuality, etc to get our points across? Its disappointing because sometimes I’m guilty of using the “gay slurs” to make my points too. Wow.

    BB is trying to kill r&b

    r&b already died. r&b killed itself from becoming predictable and singing about the same concept and rap music helped to kill r&b as well. Why cant’ r&b artist do something out of the box other than sticking a rapper in their songs? Rihanna does different things. She sings with rock bands and rock artists such as Cold Play, Maroon 5 and Slash. In her new single Stay she collaborated with Mikky Ekko, a pop/rock artist. She even collaborated with Brittney Spears, someone out of the ordinary. Rihanna doesn’t do the predictable r&b thing, that’s why people are confused about her genre. Rihanna sells records because she takes r&b to the next level. If more r&b artists did this r&b would probably do well on the charts.

    many blatherer about how she didn’t sing that much and how it wasn’t her song and other bs. she sang a hell of a lot more than britney does on this one.
