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

e2dbe80abf9e1f4c29b41ee542797327 Stay: Rihanna Lands 24th UK Top Ten Single

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 Will.i.am‘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.

    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

    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.

    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.

BC Jean can’t find work in the industry because of Beyonce.

    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)

    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.

    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. ,,

    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,,,

    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.,,
