The world may have caught Beyonce fever with the release of these snaps, but it seems Rihanna is hoping to redirect its attention back to her with her club anthem, ‘Pour It Up’.
Released on January 8th 2013, the Mike WILL Made It moved 28,740 units in the last week, bringing its total digital sales to 120,090 without the backing of a music video, or televised performances.
As it stands, the cut has peaked at #90 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #27 on Billboard’s R&B/Hip Hop Songs chart before hitting Urban radio three days ago, and weeks before the singer graces the 2013 Grammy Awards with a performance in aid of her new LP, ‘Unapologetic.’
US digital sales: @rihanna, Pour It Up 28,740 (120,090 total).

If she succeeds in hitting the R&B #1 with the single, it will mark her first success on the tally since the Sia penned release, ‘Diamonds’ which launched September 27th and enjoys Double Platinum certification statuses in Australia and New Zealand.
