4c27b1bcdaacd273f2a5d3190d80a7ed Rihannas Loud Yet To Hit 2 Million Mark After Three Years / Outsold By Pink Friday

What a tangled web Rihanna weaves.

Yes, while her team’s ear for a hit has seen her become Pop’s reigning singles chart Queen, it seems they are yet to convince fans that the albums they come in aid of are worth their hard earned cash.

For, in what will come as a cruel and unusual shock for her loyal supports, her 2010 LP ‘Loud’ is still yet to hit US sales of 2 million copies, after being outsold by Nicki Minaj‘s debut LP ‘Pink Friday‘- released in the same month.

 

Unfortunate news below…

While Minaj‘s ‘Pink Friday‘ reached US sales of 1,774,000 million by February 2012, this week saw ‘Loud’ move an unfortunate 2,482 copies in the market, bringing it to sales of 1,705,994…three years after its November 12th 2010 arrival.

Mind blowing, considering the gargantuan feats scored by its singles, ‘Only Girl In The World‘, ‘What’s My Name‘, ‘California King Bed‘, ‘S&M (featuring Britney Spears)’ and its supporting ‘LOUD’ world tour which generated a sweet $90 million for the Pop sensation.

What’s more worrying though, is that it has now less than 400,000 copies away from being outsold by Beyonce‘s lowest selling album ‘4’, which had moved 1.3 million units in the US by October 2012, and 2 million copies worldwide.

As it stands, ‘Loud’ has been certified 6x Platinum in the UK, 5x Platinum in Ireland but only 2x Platinum in the US for shipments of 2 million units to retailers. It’s arrival came two years before the release of her seventh studio album ‘Unapologetic’, which features contributions from ‘The Dream‘, Sia and ‘XOX’ singer Elijah Blake.

        Swift’s second album, Fearless, was released in 2008. Buoyed by the pop crossover success of the singles “Love Story” and “You Belong with Me”, Fearless became the top-selling album of 2009 and was supported by an extensive concert tour. The record won four Grammy Awards, with Swift becoming the youngest ever Album of the Year winner.

        With that title, it’s clear Ms. Fenty has been “inspired” by her better selling contemporaries Beyonce and Adele. For her sake, though, it’ll need to pack the quality their albums did, for she -once again-faces another chart showdown that sees her have slim chance of nabbing the top spot on the Billboard 200.

        The date, which is a mere five weeks away, will see Chris Brown‘s reported lover (again) battle it out with R&B favourite Keyshia Cole. Other major releases on that day come courtesy of AC/DC and Kid Rock…

        YOUR WORDS NOT MINE AND WHERE IS BEYONCE’S ALBUMS WW AS COMPARED TO RIHANNA’S ALBUM I MEAN BEYONCE IS MENTIONED IN THE STATEMENT AND WHERE IS BEYONCE ALBUM AS COMPARED TO RIHANNA ‘S “UNA’ SINCE RIHANNA’S LAST ALBUM HAS MOVED 1.6 MILLION UNITS SINCE IT WAS DROPPED AND WHERE IS AC/DC ON THE FUKIN CHARTS,,,,

        VERY INTERESTING READ,,,,
        Maybe the reports of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West rejecting a $3 million offer for baby photos aren’t quite as noble as they appeared.

        According to a new HollywoodLife.com report, Kardashian and West may have felt the $3 million figure wasn’t enough for a first look at the most anticipated baby of 2013 (at least, in the U.S.).

      • January 8, 2013 at 5:46 am
        Lax says:
        Vote

        HollywoodLife cites a “friend of the Kardashian family” saying that Kardashian’s mother, Kris Jenner, told Kim and Kanye not to sell: “Kris instructed Kim and Kanye to NOT sell photos of their baby for a mere $3 million! Kris thinks they could get double the amount.”

        As TMZ originally reported with the spin that Kardashian and West were selflessly rejecting the $3 million offer, the celebrity baby photo market is a hot one. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie apparently landed $4.1 million for pics of baby Shiloh in 2006, and $14 million for their twins two years later. Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony nabbed $6 million for the debut of their twins.

        If even Matthew McConaughey managed $3 million for a photo of his baby, why wouldn’t Kardashian and West expect more?

        HollywoodLife quotes a second source saying: “The main reason that Kim is not selling her pics yet is because she knows she will get more money once it gets closer to the birth, and also she doesn’t want to sell the pics yet because Kanye thinks that it is bad luck. He thinks that if they sell now, and something goes wrong with the pregnancy then he would definitely think that is the reason. He is very superstitious!”

        @CBE I have no quarrels with people feeling a certain way about artist but what I do find alarming is how people are so quick to call others Ugly. It just seems to follow Black Folks though I notice. You see @CBE See the man who’s in the Blessing Business made Us all the way he wanted all of us to be, all of Us couldn’t be born light, bright and dam near white. And you can go back and read Me and very seldom do I base my comments on looks, and money but I talk about them both often because it seems that is the only thing many of you can understand. While I know that in Your Book you see Rihanna as Ugly but in my book I see Whoopie, Percious, Jayz and Rihanna as all very Beautiful I suppose that is the different Between a Real Person, you know Human being and a Flaky Jakie like many of Rihanna’s haters and Another thing None of us can HELP IT IF WE WASN’T BLESSED WITH BLONDE HAIR AND BLUE EYES., and light bright and dam near white, i suppose you know that Mariah’s mom is white, right!

      Coming off two Grammy wins for her contribution to Jay-Z’s 2010 Grammy Award winning single “Run This Town”, Rihanna took home another trophy at this year’s ceremony.

      Earning the title for ‘Best Dance Recording’, RiRi, along with producers Stargate’s hit single ‘Only Girl (In The World)’ beat Lady Gaga and La Roux in the highly contested category.

      Stargate’s Erik Hermansen spoke on the Grammy win from the press room at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

      “Commercial success doesn’t always equate to winning a Grammy. Competition was stiff—I think the Robyn record is great. Lady Gaga was Gaga was there,” says the producer . “Rihanna came to us before we started recording this record and said ‘I feel great about myself. I want to go back to having fun, I want to make happy and up-tempo records.

        Emancipation sold 5 million in the U.S. and 12+ million ww with 2 #1 singles, 3 Grammys, and many other awards. Congrats to Kelly and Gaga for selling well with their 1st albums’ Mariah’s 1st album sold 9 million in the U.S. 15+ million ww with 4 #1 singles and 2 Grammys + other awards.

        As I told you, Mariah had released her music 20 years ago when muisc market was huge and albums used to sell well so your point is invalid.
        Btw, what makes you think that Mariah has sold over 12 million copies with The emancipation of Mimi..? With these certifications?

        “As I told you, Mariah had released her music 20 years ago when muisc market was huge and albums used to sell well so your point is invalid.”

        It isn’t anymore invalid than you comparing Kelly’s 2nd album album (at her peak) which happen to be her most successful album to Mariah’s 10th album which happens to be her 5th most successful album as well as 15+ years into her career. How is it comparable? BTW, the music climate in 2004 was great (hence why “Confessions” when to Diamond and many people were able to see albums). You do know that despite people doing well in the 90s Mariah had major competition and selling 32+ million copies of one album isn’t an easy feat. :roll:

        “It’s was a big album just in the USA, it underperformed everywhere else and it didn’t sell 12 million copies for sure. If it did, its certifications will look like this honey ;)”

        It underperformed elsewhere? :lol: REALLY now? According to YOUR source, Wikipedia, TEOM has sold 6 million in the U.S. (same as Breakaway) and, I quote, “By April 2008, The Emancipation of Mimi had sold more than 12 million copies worldwide.[133]”. KEY DATE BEING AS OF APRIL 2008.

        And again, according to Wikipedia (YOUR source) Breakaway has also sold over 12 million. ” However, with worldwide sales of over 12 million copies, Breakaway is the most successful album by an Idol overall.”

        So it “underperformed” elsewhere even though it sold 6 million or OVER outside the U.S.? What about Breakaway that did the same thing? People are still talking about Emancipation as one of the greatest comeback albums and is often used to compare others comebacks while I’ve never heard anyone (besides you today) talk about Breakaway. You have to most flawed logic and argument, which is no surprise.

        “Breakaway hasn’t had any #1 singles but has outsold Mariah even in the USA, don’t even talk about worldwide sales. And Breakaway was Kelly’s second album, not 1st.”

        You have the answer above.

        Breakaway: ” However, with worldwide sales of over 12 million copies, Breakaway is the most successful album by an Idol overall.”

        TEOM: “By April 2008, The Emancipation of Mimi had sold more than 12 million copies worldwide.[133]”.

        ► Being a pressed b**** is never a good look. At the end of the day, whether Breakaway sold more or not Mariah remain the 2nd best selling females artist of all time and Kelly remain Mariah’s fan. Sit your tired ass down somewhere.

        Honey, I’m not pressed at all, but Mariah sales are inflated. Check Mediatraffic too, impossible that she has sold over 12 million copies with poor sales internationally. Yes, I used Wikipedia because you can see certifications for the albums. Do you really think that TEOM has sold the same number of albums even though Breakaway has 100 times more certifications? The answer is, hell no. According to IPFI TEOM has sold 7.7 million copies in 2005. You are trying to say me it has sold 4 + million since then?

        It underperformed elsewhere? REALLY now? According to YOUR source, Wikipedia, TEOM has sold 6 million in the U.S. (same as Breakaway) and, I quote, “By April 2008, The Emancipation of Mimi had sold more than 12 million copies worldwide.[133]“. KEY DATE BEING AS OF APRIL 2008.

        LOL I can’t at them and at you, you shaded yourself. :) With 5-6 certifications at 12 million? Haha sure. It’s not even at 10 million copies. Can you tell me where other 6 million come from? It clearly says that By early 2008, the album’s British sales stood at more than 621,352 units.[123][124. Not even at 7 million with The USA and The Uk. Your excuse? And their link about 12 million comes from Telegraph, so it is fake for sure, like MTV claiming that Rihanna has sold 37 million albums. You are the first one who said that Rihanna’s numbers were fake ;) Kelly’s sales /certifications can prove her numbers for sure while for Mariah it can’t be said the same.

        So it “underperformed” elsewhere even though it sold 6 million or OVER outside the U.S.? What about Breakaway that did the same thing?

        Who talks about TEOM beside you? O.o Honey, Breakaway singles, even though they didn’t go at #1 have had more impact and popularity all over the world and they have sold more units than TEOM’s singles. Breakaway will stay more memorable tha TEOM for sure and the album was simply better than TEOM. Btw, I know just 5 songs from Mariah – Hero/Without You/We Belong Together/It’s Like That/Obsessed and that’s it. People are getting tired of her, that’s why no one is buying her stuff nowadays. :S

        “Honey, I’m not pressed at all, but Mariah sales are inflated.”

        And you say you’re not pressed? Mariah has sold 65 million albums in the U.S. (confirmed by Billboard so its more than reliable) and is the biggest selling western artist in Japan with over 18 million album sales (confirmed), and she’s sold over 145 million albums (Soundscan) and over 200 million records. Mariah has topped Soundscan’s yearly count with Emancipation in 2005/6 and twice with 2 different albums with Daydream and Music Box in 2 different years. So no her sales are not by any mean inflated when Madonna never even topped one year from 1992-2012.

        “Check Mediatraffic too, impossible that she has sold over 12 million copies with poor sales internationally. Yes, I used Wikipedia because you can see certifications for the albums. ” So now because YOUR primary source doesn’t satisfy you, you want to dismiss it? Get over it because if you’re using it for Kelly, I’m using it for Mariah. I cannot!! At you using mediatraffic, why don’t you try Billboard and Soundscan because they are actually reliable sources that COUNT the sales and report.

        “Do you really think that TEOM has sold the same number of albums even though Breakaway has 100 times more certifications? The answer is, hell no. According to IPFI TEOM has sold 7.7 million copies in 2005. You are trying to say me it has sold 4 + million since then?”

        Why are you backpedaling? You used one source and I used the same source. What you think doesn’t matter, its the numbers that matters. 100 X more certification? :lol: Okay? Great for her, according to your source they both sold over 12 million world wide and 6 million in the U.S. Deal with it.

        And since 2005 (8 years ago) its definitely moved some units, especially in 2006/2007 during her concerts and tour.

        “LOL I can’t at them and at you, you shaded yourself. :) With 5-6 certifications at 12 million? Haha sure. It’s not even at 10 million copies”

        I shaded myself for using the same source that you used? :roll: NEXT ►

        “Its not 10 million copies” Really? I would like a receipt for that and NOT YOUR OPINION, as you know nothing.

        “Can you tell me where other 6 million come from? It clearly says that By early 2008, the album’s British sales stood at more than 621,352 units.[123][124.

        Again, you shouldn’t have used Wikipedia in the first place. And Wikipedia hasn’t said she’s sold 41 million albums and such, her label did. Again, I would like to see you disprove it, because you’re the one who cited Wiki as a source. You made your bed, now lay in it and stop complaining.

        “Who talks about TEOM beside you?”

        Namely, this site and many other sites who compare others comeback albums to Emancipation. Vh1, BET, Rolling stones, and many more music sites and fans cite it and STILL talk about it as one of the greatest come-backs. No one talks about Breakaway.

        “Honey, Breakaway singles, even though they didn’t go at #1 have had more impact and popularity all over the world and they have sold more units than TEOM’s singles.”

        What singles? Well, one holds records while the other doesn’t so NEXT.

        “Breakaway will stay more memorable tha TEOM for sure and the album was simply better than TEOM.”

        That’s your personal preference and thought, but no one says “will Christina Aguilera have her ‘Breakaway’ album and come back from flop?” No, they say will she have her “Emancipation of Mimi” and come back stronger. Lets also not talk about how TEOM is ranked as one of the best R&B albums of the 00s. NEXT

        “I know just 5 songs from Mariah – Hero/Without You/We Belong Together/It’s Like That/Obsessed and that’s it.” Great for you, a lot of people know those songs, especially Hero, Without you, my all, etc because they are classics and still performed on singing shows and covered by many artists including KELLY CLARKSON. Same cannot be said about Kelly. Mariah is the most covered artists in singing shows like Idol, X-Factor, etc
        Its not my fault that you only know 5 Mariah songs and you tell me that this is better and such. It just disproves EVERYTHING you said above because you haven’t listened to her songs/albums to judge.

        “People are getting tired of her, that’s why no one is buying her stuff nowadays. :S” Like how people bought “My December” actually it has more to do with her longevity.

I hope you realize that you just gave yourself away while trying to prove to me that Mariah’s discography is not memorable. At the end of the day Kelly’s albums sales regardless of it outselling TEOM or not is NOWHERE near Mariah’s so sit your tired ass down because you tried EVERY excuse and biased opinion, but it doesn’t matter because you are one lonesome individual as opposed to the rest of the world and music industry that lists Mariah as a legend and icon.

So no her sales are not by any mean inflated when Madonna never even topped one year from 1992-2012.

        TEOM’s sales are definitely inflated since they put 12 million copies. Why do you need to bring total album sales when we were talking about Breakaway and TEOM? Mariah has more albums and most of them were released when albums used to sell well. Why can’t she sell nowadays 30 million copies? She’s a diva, she should be able to do it.

        So now because YOUR primary source doesn’t satisfy you, you want to dismiss it? Get over it because if you’re using it for Kelly, I’m using it for Mariah. I cannot!!

        h**, Wikipedia is my source for certifications are you so dumb to get it? Yes you are. I’ve never said that Breakaway has sold 12 million copies, you mentioned it first. Anyway, hey didn’t need to fake Kelly’s numbers to look better like with your fav.

        Again, you shouldn’t have used Wikipedia in the first place. And Wikipedia hasn’t said she’s sold 41 million albums and such, her label did. Again, I would like to see you disprove it, because you’re the one who cited Wiki as a source. You made your bed, now lay in it and stop complaining.

        You’ve been using Wikipedia all time. You are the one who is faking. I remember that when people said that Mariah is done and she couldn’t sell albums you were bringing 12 million copies for TEOM. Try next time with accurate numbers.

        Namely, this site and many other sites who compare others comeback albums to Emancipation. Vh1, BET, Rolling stones, and many more music sites and fans cite it and STILL talk about it as one of the greatest come-backs. No one talks about Breakaway.

        This site? When, why, how? O.o Kelly won Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album with Breakaway and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance with Since U Been Gone. What are you talking about? Both albums were critically acclaimed.

        What singles? Well, one holds records while the other doesn’t so NEXT.

        Since U Been Gone, Behing These Hazel Eyes, Because Of You were huge hits worldwide, not just in the USA like Mariah’s singles. You tried again.

        That’s your personal preference and thought, but no one says “will Christina Aguilera have her ‘Breakaway’ album and come back from flop?” No, they say will she have her “Emancipation of Mimi” and come back stronger. Lets also not talk about how TEOM is ranked as one of the best R&B albums of the 00s. NEXT

        Best R&B according to? You right? We speak about your personal preference as well. What does Christina Aguilera have to do with this? O.o

        Great for you, a lot of people know those songs, especially Hero, Without you, my all, etc because they are classics and still performed on singing shows and covered by many artists including KELLY CLARKSON. Same cannot be said about Kelly. Mariah is the most covered artists in singing shows like Idol, X-Factor, etc

        Nope honey, Kelly’s songs are widely sung in many competitions. Here, no one sings Mariah songs, but Kelly’s yes. And this phrase Mariah is the most covered artists in singing shows like Idol, X-Factor, etc is fake. They sing more Rihanna’s songs than Mariah’s. The only song they do by Mariah is Hero and that’s it. From Kelly Because of You/Since U Been Gone/Stronger.

        Its not my fault that you only know 5 Mariah songs and you tell me that this is better and such. It just disproves EVERYTHING you said above because you haven’t listened to her songs/albums to judge.

        People did it and decided that Kelly’s albums is better and that’s why they decided to buy it more than TEOM.

        Like how people bought “My December” actually it has more to do with her longevity.

      The most important thing is the money… is she not on a 360 deal?

      Rihanna’s posts are always riddled with stats and numbers but many fail to realize she probably gets 30%-40% of sales revenue, including her tours, endorsement deals she is basically a machine making money so lets call her:

        Rihanna ‘Loud”
        This week Billboard reported that Rihanna yet again broke some musical records on the US charts. Her newest album Loud peaked at #3, one slot higher than last year’s Rated R. The album sold 207,000 copies its first week, which is the highest first week sales for the artist exceeding Rated R (181,000) and Good Girl Gone Bad (162,000). The album also becomes the artist’s first #1 Digital Album.

        Rihanna’s ‘Loud”,,
        What has proven to be the weirdest record for Rihanna? The first single off the album, the track titled “Only Girl (In The World)”, climbs and rings the bell at #1 this week after ten weeks of being released. This instance is the first time in the history of the Hot 100 chart that an album’s lead single reaches No. 1 after the second single has done so before it. “What’s My Name?” featuring Drake hit #1 two weeks ago.

        Also, “Only Girl” becomes Rihanna’s fourth #1 in 2010 breaking her current record for most #1 singles in a single year for the same female artist. The last time this was done was in 2004 when Usher had four number ones. She is now tied with Usher for most #1 singles this decade, with nine, despite her having the most #1 singles in the spawn of her career (2005-2010) for any artist on the Hot 100

        Someone on a 360 deal buying a house at the Pacific Palisades??? No way, 360 deals leave you broke (ask Toni, TLC), Rihanna isn’t broke.

        She contributed $1.7 million USD worth of hospital equipment, has a house at the Pacific Palisades and has prime land in Barbados. No way is she on a 360 deal, you tried though.

        So just she bought a house at some exotic place and has one in Hollywood makes her wealthy? she donated cash it makes her wealthy? to us what people like Rihanna make is alot of money but Rihanna compared to people like Jay z, Beyonce, Dre Dre, P Diddy, Mariah Carey, Eminem, U2, Madonna etc she is making peanuts! do you know not even Chris Brown is on a 360 deal? hence he wants out of RCA(they want him on it), strangely Pink and Usher have some freedom…I heard rumours that IDJ particularly Roc nation wanted Chris…rumours.

        She hasnt made real money yet…even Taylor swift is on real money just not at the level of the people mentioned above. Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Niki Minaj, Katy Perry, JB are on 360 deals and dont have much freedom, a female who’s really killing it is Adele…she doesnt need to tour but she wanted too, she made her own choice(the throat injury didnt help).

        one of the signs an artist is on 360 or indications :

        “If you want to find out the future of 360° deals, look at Motown in the late 60s. Motown was the pioneer of a 360° deal … They owned your likeness, your touring, publishing, record royalties, told you what to wear, told you how to walk … It made for great entertainment but if you look at every one of those artists, what happened? Sooner or later they said, ‘I’m not going to go on the road for 200 shows because you tell me so. I’m an artist! I’m a creative person!’ Eventually all these artists left … There’s two things we know about creativity: you can’t force it and you can’t really control it ” (Quote taken from Wiki)

        360 deals leave an artist broke, Rihanna is not broke. She is the creative director of her albums as well as Executive Producer on her album (EP is equivalent to a Project Manager). She has way more input in her music than you claim.

        Rihanna made more money than Bey and Jay last year (check Forbes), she couldn’t have done that if she was on a 360 deal.

        Again you keep saying Broke? I said or heard nothing about people being broke on 360 deals…its up to the artist and not all 360 deals are the same(Contracts are negotiated) or many mainstream artists would be broke and you said Rihanna made more money then Beyonce and Jay z right? ok now you know those stats are 2012 right…ok now lets look at artists activeness, you could clearly see by reading the articles Rihanna was A. releasing albums, B. Touring, C. She has endorsement deals…Was Jay Z, Beyonce touring?(yes they did before)but not the way they are making Rihanna work! Bey and Jay rely on Private shows and endorsment deals(atleast 2012) and other business ventures, Rihanna had the Loud Tour(Which is nearly100 dates) now nearly 2 years later she is going on another? THEY ARE WORKING HER LIKE A HORSE, look at people like Katy Perry, JB? like I said you have to notice the patterns,activeness + money earned… 360 deal doesnt mean you are broke but just at a disadvantage.

        4
        Beyonce
        [2 229 700]

        For Loud in 2011
        Loud
        Rihanna

        and in 2010

        Rihanna

    Like I keep saying. It’s not all about the sales. loud might’ve been a LOUD and messy album in my opinion, but the impact it had on pop culture was HUGE. How many girls had red hair that year? Who didn’t hear What’s My Name?? &M caused controversy and attracted a Britney Spears collaboration. Plus how many number ones and rihanna favourites came from that album? Man Down was EXTREMELY popular amongst my age group in East London, that didn’t sell well or chart high but EVERYONE was singing it. What should an artist really care about, sales or impact. I’d much rather be happier having fans know and like my songs than my album selling more than Pink Friday (Although a HOT album at the time, now it’s very forgettable and dated). I still dislike LOUD though. It’s just loud and in your face with its annoying ness, but it had few good tracks.

        I’ve never used Wikipedia for Mariah’s and Kelly’s overall sales, just for certifications. At least they didn’t need to lie about Kelly’s real sales like on Mariah’s page because it’s obvious that Kelly sold more and her album wasn’t local like your fav’s, 5-6 million from other countries outside of the USA.
        We are comparing the album sales from 2000s, 2004 and 1990 are not the same. Other female artists had huge sales from that period, Madonna, Celine, Whitney, Britney etc. It’s obvious that your fav cannot sell like she used to do in the past because you know that music market is dead (Adele is an exception) and people lost interest in her.
        Anyway, you’ve been fooling us all time with 12 million copies sold of TEOM when someone mentioned Mariah career decline. Yes, you were saying 12 million, I remember very well.

        “I’ve never used Wikipedia for Mariah’s and Kelly’s overall sales, just for certifications.”

        You used Wikipedia, stop backpedaling and accept it. You shouldn’t have used it in the first place.

        “At least they didn’t need to lie about Kelly’s real sales like on Mariah’s page because it’s obvious that Kelly sold more and her album wasn’t local like your fav’s, 5-6 million from other countries outside of the USA.”

        Did you just call Mariah “local” :lol: :lol: A local that sold 145 million albums? #poordat I struck a nerve? Poor baby girl :cry: :lol: DEAL.

        “We are comparing the album sales from 2000s, 2004 and 1990 are not the same.” You are right, but that was Kelly’s peak so you cannot compare someone who’s in the biz 2 years to some one in their 15 years. Invalid again.

        “Other female artists had huge sales from that period, Madonna, Celine, Whitney, Britney etc.” Well only Whitney has an album selling more than Music Box. The rest haven’t sold album near 32+ million.

        ” It’s obvious that your fav cannot sell like she used to do in the past because you know that music market is dead (Adele is an exception) and people lost interest in her.”

        Evidently people seem to not have interest with Kelly either seeing that she cannot scan 3+ million with a #1 song and such from her album “Stronger”. Unfortunately, she doesn’t have the acclaim, records sold, and longevity like Mariah to hide behind. The public isn’t any more disinterested with Mariah than they are with Madonna, Celine, or any of the other legends.

        “Anyway, you’ve been fooling us all time with 12 million copies sold of TEOM when someone mentioned Mariah career decline. Yes, you were saying 12 million, I remember very well. So, now I am the one who is delusional while you were using Wikipedia to make Mariah’s sales look better?”

        I don’t have to make Mariah look like anything, she simply is you just cannot accept it and its nothing to do with me. I didn’t use Wikipedia, you did, so its the problem you have with yourself not me. Unlike your fave Mariah is accomplished and more than your fave would ever dream to be so deal with it.

        Did you just call Mariah “local” A local that sold 145 million albums? #poordat I struck a nerve? Poor baby girl DEAL.

        Yup, because she’s local. Honey, lets not. Madonna has sold more albums than her and most of her sales come oustide of the USA. So yes, she is local. and out of 9 million copies TEOM has sold 6 come from the USA.

        Evidently people seem to not have interest with Kelly either seeing that she cannot scan 3+ million with a #1 song and such from her album “Stronger”. Unfortunately, she doesn’t have the acclaim, records sold, and longevity like Mariah to hide behind. The public isn’t any more disinterested with Mariah than they are with Madonna, Celine, or any of the other legends.

        Kelly’s album went platinum, lets see how Mariah’s new album will do. Judging by ‘success’ of Triumphant I can easily predict it. Kelly doesn’t have acclaim? They always call her to do tributes to divas, critics appreaciate her voice. Btw, you are comparing someone who’s been 9 years in the game and someone who’s been 23 years. Do you really think that Mariah would see those numbers if she released her album in 2000s?

        I don’t have to make Mariah look like anything, she simply is you just cannot accept it and its nothing to do with me.

        Mariah’s last three albums flopped? Really?

        The Emancipation of Mimi: sold 5 million in the U.S. and 12+ million in the world with 2 #1 singles on the Hot 100 and 1 #2 single (making history), and had the biggest radio played song of all time. She also won 3 Grammys and countless other awards. >> LOL I can’t
        So clearly you are using Wikipedia numbers, so I prove you wrong this time honey ;)

        Numbers sure don’t like like you do. I mean you told me that “Hurt” by Christina Aguilera was better than anything Mariah has done yet you only know 5 Mariah Carey songs. NEXT.

        Obviously they don’t neither do I. Yes, Hurt >>>every Mariah’s song. The thing is I am not interested to hear her music because it’s not my cup of tea. Come with better excuses, it’s not working, sorry. ;)

We all know 4lop was the worse of her career so out of desperation they bring up DIL LMAO. TTT and UN which is Rihanna’s current material will outsell 4lop and that’s why they are pressed. UN reached 1.8 in 6 weeks, almost 2 million hos. And Rihanna didn’t need to release a second single. Her album is selling off of Diamonds alone. And don’t give me no “she doesn’t sell in the US” crap. I can name some people who don’t sell in the US. Selling only 300k or 600k here or there is not selling. Rihanna is a very bad example of somebody who doesn’t sell in the US. So many dream of passing the 1 mill mark and selling globally like Rihanna does.

        Because her stans refuse to stay humble about her accomplishments and forget Beyonce paved way for Rihanna and a lot of artists in the industry. Most of them are pretty uneducated about music in general bashing legends like Celine Dion. All the sudden U and the other Navy brats think Rihanna is a powerful act just because of her sales. Her talent is minimal just like Britney and Katy Perry who are also high single sellers. People seem to forget that making a solid album and having it be an unforgettable classic and getting it to sell to the masses is a lot harder than just putting out generic trendy music and if it weren’t for her digital singles she would not be 100 WW. Most of beyonce’s accomplishments come from her collective work of material which are albums. People are quick to remember a good album than just a song anyways. And while I do like some of Rihanna’s songs, objectively, her albums alone don’t carry much weight. The only ones allowed to shade Beyonce are MC, Whitney, and MJ fans ans some Celine fans. Rihanna, Katy, Nicki, and Britney stans should not talk when they depend on tactics and studio synthesizers to enhance their talents. Not the other way around. Just keeping it real. Rihanna is okay. But she’s not the best. Her stans don’t like to admit that. Without her sales, she’s be just another overlooked amateur.

        I agree that Beyonce is one of the best singers of our generations (Kelly Clarkson and Christina Aguilera are too). I’ve never said that Rihanna is better singer than her and I will never do it because it’s a lie. But anyway, Rihanna is better than Katy Perry and Britney Spears when it comes to singing. She’s not amazing, she’s average, but still better than them. When was the last time BS sang live? Katy has never had a decent performance. But to be honest, Beyonce’s music is not that great, I mean its quality, it’s not nothing memorable like her stans claim it. She needs better music to be considered a legend. Do you really think that her songs are comparable to Whitney’s? Nope honey, let’s not pretend. Her music is on the same level as Rihanna’s. But both of them have had a huge impact on pop culture so far. So I repeat, we should support both of them because they love each other. ;)

And to this person comparing mariah and Kelly please stop it.Adele just proved an album can still go diamond all these years after mariah’s second diamond album! I mean for what emancipation sold so late in her career and a comeback album a newcomer outselling is pointless. Isn’t that wat the beyhive argue the navy with.? The discography and sales over the span of a career not a lucky album. Oh and Kelly doesn’t have an outstanding career to try n pit against mariah no consistancy. Pit her against her peers, like other idols.

    This blog is b******* notice they only include US sales. Worldwide Loud outsold lik kim 4th album Pink Friday – oops sorry I get confused between her and Nicki Minaj – it’s like single black female! This is just another biased article bit like the ones they write about Kim to throw shade on an artist they don’t like. Let’s be fair in the past maybe Rihanna’s live performances haven’t been the best but her singles slay and recently her vocal performances have been on point. She is as big as Beyonce know and that is down to her hard work and nobody can HATE on that. At least she is original and hasn’t had to copy anyone’s image,throw subliminals and then pretend like she’s being picked on. That’s my problem with minaj she obviously had a problem with Kim, if you are that gangster that you are threatening to shoot Mariah then why not just come out and say yeah I said it about you so what? Because the same way she didn’t do the casket skit at Summer Jam Kim would have offed her top! AND AGAIN SHE MANIPULATED THE STORY TO MAKE IT LOOK LIKE IT WAS BECAUSE OF WHAT ROSENBERG SAID… There were goons waiting to storm that stage – Kim is loved, she isn’t! She is a fake, a fraud and a phony and please don’t ever mention in her in the same breath as Rihanna again, because at this stage in their careers at least Rihanna has
    credibility.
