‘Stay’: Rihanna Lands 24th UK Top Ten Single

Published: Monday 17th Dec 2012 by David

In what boils down to her team’s ability to spot hits, the last four years have seen Rihanna secure an installed- and times inactive- audience across the globe, willing and ready to purchase whatever she releases, if pushed well enough.

Though the same undying support hasn’t translated into album sales, it has made it impossible for the star to get through a campaign without scoring multiple singles successes, a fact proved time and time again with every Top Ten smash she has scored since 2007’s ‘Umbrella‘.

So it should come as little surprise then, that one week after performing the number on ‘The X Factor UK’, her single ‘Stay’ has stormed the UK charts- landing her 24th Top Ten single in the country.

Details below…

Debuting at #6, ‘Stay‘ sits one spot above its older sister ‘Diamonds‘ which now spends its 11th week in the Top Ten.

Meanwhile, on the Urban Chart, ‘Stay‘ sits pretty at #2 while ‘Diamonds‘ sits one spot below, both songs outsold by‘s ‘Scream & ShoutBritney Spears collabo which holds court at #1.

On an album’s front, ‘Unapologetic’ slips one spot to #7, while her 2010 LP ‘Loud’ rises 19 spots to claim the #100 spot, 109 weeks after its ‘Only Girl In The World’ driven debut.

However, in what we’d say comes as the best piece of news, her 2011 smash hit ‘We Found Love’ rose 45 spots in the last seven days- generated by its appearance during her ‘X Factor’ set.

She Is Diva.

    • Stephen December 17, 2012

      Stay, Umm Well if you ask me Rihanna needs to STAY away from Chris Brown. Rihanna is to demanding for him where is Kae lets him do what he wants. I think they really should only be friends unless she tells the real story of 2009.

      Congrats to her

      • Um December 17, 2012

        How the f*** am I pressed when I gave her (much deserved) props? I have the album. I am a fan. I just can’t stand grotesque, fanatic c**** like you @TheWholeWorld”Love”Rihanna. Shut the f*** up and sit the f*** down. Get a life afterwards.

  3. THE DIAMOND NAVY December 17, 2012

    another day, another rihanna single slays the charts… Whats new

  4. Hop-Scotch December 17, 2012


  5. aynon December 17, 2012

    Im glad she is releasing music which is different to what’s the charts it’s nice to hear ballads like stay on the radio amidst all the crap they play. its refreshing i hope it can achieve the same success in the states, but im doubtful.

    a) because its not very radio friendly.

    b) because the US isn’t as crazy for rihanna as UK is.

    c) because you cant just perform on one show and get a top ten such as X Factor.

  6. Hilly December 17, 2012

    This song is amazing, so congrats Rihanna

  7. TeamBreezy & TeamMinaj December 17, 2012

      b**** please be guided accordingly, chris brown is over with his flop donkey looking ass, rih slays and rules his life!!! #bytheclickofherfingers

      • mobwife: side-eye at the bullsh*t December 17, 2012

        B**** that’s not a teambreezy member so stop being fooled, dumbass!

        Chris Brown will always reign supreme he is the only young black man I know who walks through the wall of RACIST AMERICAN HATRED AND CONSTANT B******* but still manages to win! So have several seats you lunatic!

    • pinky December 17, 2012

      I have to say this. The Navy supports Rihanna big time. Chris Brown fans don’t buy his music, they download them for free and call themselves fans or better yet Teambreezy. Just look at those numbers 378k WW in 5 months. What his people should do it either rip them off the shelves and throw them in the trash or sell them for $2.99 – $3.99. All Teambreezy wants from Chris Brown is free music.

      Sidenote: Chris don’t even promote hiself. He’s to busy promoting his girlfriend Kurrache clothing line.

      • James227 December 17, 2012

        FORTUNE sold 695k WW. Where are you people getting 378k from? So go buy several caskets and go to sleep

    Good for her…She won’t be remebered for her
    -dancing ability
    -stage precense
    -album sales


    But she will be remembered for having the most Twitter & Facebook followers (that will most likely be forgotten within the the next decade), and have a lot of #1’s that nobody remembers.

    And the navy calls that winning?

      • RichandBlack11 December 17, 2012

        But what did Beyonce have to do with this….I don’t recall Rene being apart of the hive. #justsayin

      • THE WHOLE WORLD LOVES RIHANNA!!! December 17, 2012

        Lax baby leave bey out of this we know RIHANNA and her numbers and chart history and her successful career trumps anything her haters say on this irrelevant blog. just because they commented their opinion on her doesnt take away her bright ass shine. ok RIHANNA is slaying and she is only 24 RIHANNA doesnt give a f*** what her haters think because she is still the new face of CHANEL AND VICTORIA SECRET 2 Multimillion dollar deals that she is working on while slaying. but babes dont start a stan war ok RIHANNA and her reign aint going no where. and her haters will just have to sit and wait for her reign to end

      • SHARON December 17, 2012

        Why u gotta bring beyonce into this?? Is rene even a fan of bey??

    • Lax December 17, 2012

      @RENE And remembered for this,,,,

      Rihanna what about that Bytche, 8 Million to flip a switch,,,,,,
      You don’t get paid $8 million to switch on your Christmas lights. But that is how much Rihanna is reportedly getting paid to do just that at a London mall this holiday season. To be fair, she’s giving a concert, too.

  18. NAVI December 17, 2012

    I STILL CAN’T believe LOUD is still charting after almost 3 years..calll it what you want but LOUD is rihanna most iconic album thus far not the best but that album have longetivity.

  19. Belladonna December 17, 2012

    People on this site can make you f****** hate Rihanna lol like you never want to listen to her again but then i thought about it and I’ve liked Rihanna a lot longer then I’ve known about her evil ass navi fan bass and most of Beyonces fans dont dislike Rihanna they dislike her fan bass So I’m going to continue my love of her singles and block out her fan bass. So I’m happy for Rihsnna you go girl you s*** b**** lol Stay is an amazing song!

    • Lax December 17, 2012

      @BELLADONA,,,,,,Sooooo TO YOU IT’S okay for people to
      type mean Spirited THINGS about Rihanna and Her Navy is suppose to Kiss their Asses AND Clap, Clap??????

      I Read you often and you seem like a a normal person then,,

      • RichandBlack11 December 17, 2012

        Lax that’s a damn lie , Everybody on this site know I will go in on Rihanna but like belldonna stated I only go in on Rihanna when the Titanics come for King Beyonce. Stop the BS that we hate Rihanna cause we don’t if anything I hate some of the Titanics. I will say she is doing her thing but lets keep it all the way 10000 she is Mediocre at best 🙂 Happy Holiday to you and yours.

        Please not to much egg nod cause we dont need any long essay #thankyousomuch lol

      • Belladonna December 17, 2012

        @Lax I understand that the navi has to stand up for the artist that they love because a lot of people do talk s*** about Rihanna but that’s because she’s always winning and they just can’t take it! lol Buttttt what the navi needs to understand is she’s not the only one winning people like Beyonce,Gaga,Taylor Swift, Adele and Britney are International Super Stars just like her and the navi be making in seem like they ant s*** and that’s where the crazy from the navi comes in at. Lol

      • THE WHOLE WORLD LOVES RIHANNA!!! December 17, 2012

        UM WE ARE NOT THE TITANIC THANK YOU! JUST LIKE OTHER FAN BASES CALL BEYONCES STANS HOODRAT AND BROKE BUMS THAT ARE ALL FAT LIVING IN THE GHETTOS. but we know you guys hate whe someone comes after beyonce we navy hate whe you come after King Rih. but its all love babes and its fun tho. at the end of the day bey and Rih are both gonna be legends.

      • Lax December 17, 2012


      • Lax December 17, 2012

        I know that in life, sometimes things get in your path and you have a choice. you can either smash right into them or you can adjust and move around, but you have to do one or the other in order to move forward, Rih Says She choose to
        skip, jump right over the bump in the road and keep it going,,,,
        That is why I support Her 100000000000000%

    • Diamonds (BEYONCE’S WEAVE) December 17, 2012

      People hate on Rihanna first, the Navi is just defending her. The hoodhive have always hated Rihanna since Good Girl Gone Bad, they hate anyone who is a threat to their King.

      • RichandBlack11 December 17, 2012

        How dare you set your fingers to type that b.s when you just about attack Beyonce everyday. Cut the B.s Btw Happy Holidays to you and yours.

      • Diamonds (BEYONCE’S WEAVE) December 17, 2012

        Well it’s true, the hoodhive always attacks Rihanna, you cannot expect the Navi to sit down and clap their hands at all the hate Rihanna gets for absolutely no reason, they’ll defend her. Plus I don’t talk about Beyonce because of Rihanna, I talk about her because she’s a thief who’s caused a lot of destruction in themusic industry. BC Jean can’t find work in the industry because of Beyonce.

      • RichandBlack11 December 17, 2012

        I will agree with you on that and I will say it goes both ways…. To be real with you just about every artist in the industry is a thief if you really think about it.(Not to make an excuss for Beyonce, but we still don’t have any proof that she did)

        At the end of the day both women are really doing their thing. #caseclosed

        Y’all kill me with that hoodhive crap when in fact the Navy is just as hood if not worst. lmao

      • THE WHOLE WORLD LOVES RIHANNA!!! December 17, 2012

        babes we do have proof people came out and said that she is a theif. bc jean said it the begees said it and neyo and so many others and her childhood friend toya and tavia. come on babes i know you love your king but you know she a liar and a fraud but at the end of the day its a business and her lies are either paid off her swept under a rug. but you cant deny her work ethics thats why she is rich. but happy holidays hun!

      • THE WHOLE WORLD LOVES RIHANNA!!! December 17, 2012

        And we will respect your king if you respect our king.

      • RichandBlack11 December 17, 2012

        ^^^^^^I’m cool with that Happy Holidays to you and yours

      • zzzzzg December 17, 2012

        They hated Rihanna since Pon De Replay and Unfaithful!!

  20. Diamonds (BEYONCE’S WEAVE) December 17, 2012

    If you didn’t know, now you know. That reign. Congrats Rihanna, this is well deserved. I cannot wait for “What now” and “Right now” to be singles, I’ll lose my mind I won’t be able to handle the awesomeness.

    • THE WHOLE WORLD LOVES RIHANNA!!! December 17, 2012

      I want jump or mother mary or maybe right now

  21. Touché December 17, 2012

    Wow it’s actually good. Congrats Rihanna(:

  22. King B>Rihanna December 17, 2012

    Not going to hate get that commercial success RiRi

  23. mobwife: side-eye at the bullsh*t December 17, 2012

    Aywho, I love this song and her SNL & UK X-Factor live peformances of it! I can’t wait to see the video treatement for the single.

  24. THE WHOLE WORLD LOVES RIHANNA!!! December 17, 2012

    I love king rih!!! keep slaying and making history!! Now i want you to go eat and gain about 10lbs because you are getting way to skinny. you and chris need to eat 🙂

  25. RichandBlack11 December 17, 2012

    she needs to release Lovveeee song to ubran Radio

  26. Pop Royalty December 17, 2012

    one of the few DECENT tracks in this disastrous shitty mess of an album.

    i still don’t see it as a global smash hit tbh.

  27. Monstarebel December 17, 2012


    I still want NUMB as a single

  28. EzraJKnight (Now accepting “help Honeychildplease wig game” donations December 17, 2012

    “Funny you were the broken one but I was the only one that needed… Saaavvvinnn”

    –> I love that line!

    This song is real mature and contemporary for Rihanna. It can be a global smash because Adele’s 21 album was filled with singles similar to “Stay” and it still smashed on the radio. Just give it time and more US/ global commercial promotion.

  29. Lax December 17, 2012

    @EZRA,,,,,,Its always Refreshing to read your Comments,,,,Thanks,,,!!

    • EzraJKnight (Now accepting “help Honeychildplease wig game” donations December 17, 2012

      Aww thank you man! As a member of the Navy fan base I must support all of Rihanna’s music, career moves and fashion choices ( may not like it but can still support her vision) I think that’s what being a STAN is all about, having complete faith in your fave and showing them that you are there for them 100% of the way.

      • Lax December 17, 2012

        @EZRA,,Amen to that Ofc,,,

  30. : : PLAY N’ SLAY . : . : . . . . . December 17, 2012

    But when Beyonce scored 2 UK Top10’s from ‘4’ . . . . . . . .

    Anyway, congrats Rihanna, “Stay” is a good song.

  31. Lax December 17, 2012

    Food For Though,,,
    regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.” life sometimes gives you a second chance. It is clear that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. that I still have a lot to learn. that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. ,,

    • Belladonna December 17, 2012

      OMG that was beautiful @LAX lol You just made me think of alot of things in my life I need to do. Thanks and Happy Holidays!!!!!!

  32. Lax December 17, 2012

    For Rihanna,,,
    a lot has happened this year … things don’t always turn out the way you planned, or the way you think they should. And there are things that go wrong that don’t always get fixed or get put back together the way they were before. Rih know that some broken things stay broken, and we do know that you can get through bad times and keep looking for better ones, as long as you have people who love you. Like Your
    Navy Rih, Rih,,,

  33. Lax December 17, 2012

    Rihanna Remember That,,,
    no matter how thin you slice it, there are always two sides. it’s taking me a long time to become the person i want to be. it’s a lot easier to react than it is to think. that either you control your attitude or it controls you. that maturity has more to do with the types of experiences you’ve had and what you’ve learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you’ve celebrated. quantity is not as important as quality when it comes to best friends. it isn’t enough to be forgiven by others, sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself. that no matter how bad your heart is broken, the world will not stop for your grief. I know that background and circumstances might have influenced who you are, but we are responsible for who we become. I know that you can’t make someone love you, all you can do is be someone who can be loved. I know that although the word “love” can have many meanings, it loses value when overly used. No matter how old or wise you think you are, life never stops teaching.,,

  34. Navy Queen December 17, 2012

    Rihanna has 3 albums in the top 100 UK album charts ,SAM didn’t mention talk that talk because he’s now bitter f**!! F*** your posts Sam it seems nobody from the UK cares what your broke ass has to say about this girl otherwise she wouldn’t be slaying the UK charts BOOOOOOO!!!!
