The Dream: ‘Beyonce’s ’4′ Is Rihanna’s ‘Rated R’

 The Dream: Beyonces 4 Is Rihannas Rated R

The Dream has compared Beyonce‘s fourth studio album, ‘4′ to Rihanna‘s ‘Talk That Talk‘.

Responsible for crafting jams on both release, the ‘Umbrella’ hit maker has compared the critically acclaimed albums during a conversation he had with the ‘Hollywood Reporter‘, on Bey’s forthcoming fifth studio effort.

His estimation below…

On album #5, the producer shared:

“Her sound is growing with how she’s growing, not because she’s a mother though. She’s just musically growing into a place — it’s the same place we were in with 4. 

I think 4 was one of those, what I call, ‘the corner’ albums — same album that Rihanna did when she did Rated R. There are albums that you turn a corner on that aren’t always taken for the glitz and glamour of things, because it’s not as commercial. But they’re corner albums, and they have to be there. She had to turn that corner with 4 in order to get to where we’re trying to go right now.”

A strange comparison? Yes, but it does make sense.

Though critically acclaimed- ‘4‘ like ‘Rated R’  stands as a fan favorite by way of  quality, while struggling to fully capture’s the world’s adoration as well as prior releases did, for a number of reasons.

For ’4‘, it was no doubt the decision to push ‘Run The World‘ and not the superior ‘End Of Time’ as its first single… and for ‘R’?

Well, despite being Ri’s strongest project to date on a lyrical tip, we’d say it was a little too dark & mature for her audience at the time. This, as Dream so accurately put it, prompted the ‘slayage’ that was her ‘Loud’ era.

Of course, while its US sales fail to wow even today, Rihanna‘s transition from Emo-Pop Princess to Tumblr Land Barbie undoubtedly served as the launching pad for many of the achievements she nabbed over the last year and a half.

So, with the pressure on for Bey to score gargantuan sales her new release, here’s hoping the LP’s first single goes some way to surpass feats scored by Rihanna’s latest releases and her own.

Then again, with the means and talent to ensure she does, we’ll doubt she have any trouble doing so.

Thats right TGJ. Thats right The Dream: Beyonces 4 Is Rihannas Rated R

    But dream really needs to start dressing with some respect when you come to white events like the Grammys he made black people look like ghetto ass monkeys. Who comes to the Grammys wearing a boys N DA HOOD hat with gold chains and his pants hanging off his ass. That’s why white people don’t like black people at there shows cause they dress like they just left Compton to come there.

    I’m yet to see Lies in what he said.

    let’s keep it simple : The NAVY are here for the dance Songs and THE HIVE are her for the Uptempos , it is not that hard y’all.

    but they both are to blame cuz they Give their first singles 100% of ther time all the time and ignore the rest of the tracks ……. See Rihanna’s Loud Era , if she didn’t go strong with the promo , the LOUD era “specifically singles” would have been a Big flop
    and this what Beyonce Sadly did with the 4 Era , she didn’t have a clear strategy to deal with her singles and she was Bleeding Singles to the point we , as her casual fans , didn’t know what single to support or what single is “IN” Now , and her pregnancy made it sure the Era won’t be IASF pt.2 !!!

    Since 2005 and this is the case !! Both Bey and Rihanna should care about the Music and to PAY attention what their fans want from them.

    I don’t know what to say? I’m surprised that The Dream is comparing Beyonce to Rihanna especially in such a passive way. typically Beyonce is viewed as the “Queen” who leads not someone who follows and especially behind Rihanna (I didn’t like 4 nor did I like Rated R). Hummmm, anyway I think the ppl around Beyonce are putting a lot of pressure on her. I just hope her new project does well for her sake. I’m especially curious to hear her lead single!

    This is why people get the game f***** up. The cheek of this oompa lampa to compare 4 told Rated R. 4 was a labor of love that took time and effort. R is just a compilation of demos that LA put together, no real emotion behind it. It hurts my p**** to know that people in the industry really think Beyonce is similar to Rihanna even though Rihanna hasn’t got a shred of talent. Not a single shred.

    What is her vocal range? What can she write? Does she dance? Can she act? No she cannot and just for making this stupid comparison I HOPE his new album flops harder Kreayshawn’s shitty album.

    Oh please, Rated R was quality whilst 4closure is trash. Rated R was personal whereas 4closure was trying to jump on the Adele bandwagon. Rated R had some top ten hits and a Hot 100 #1, 4closure had no hits, not even a top ten.

    Rated R sold 3 million worldwide, 4closure is nowhere near that. Rated R was perfect lyrically whereas 4closure is a generic ghetto mess (what the hell is Run the world, party, end of time, 1+1 algeba).

    Dream is insulting Riri by comparing that trash to Rated R. I hope Rihanna never works with him again.

    For once i agree. I feel each artists best piece of work is always their least successful album. 4 is a hot album. Bey really brought her vocals to the forefront. With Rated R Rih was in a very dark place and allowed her emotions and feelings to reflect in her music which is very rare for me to see in her.

    But at the end of the day he shouldnt compare 4 and Rated R because they have 2 completely diff sounds lyrically and conceptually. 4 is way lighter than Rated R

Rated R had some hits but ONLY sold 3.4 million. That was a SHAME. KING BEY should never be compared to Rihanna. Rihanna is the INDUSTRY w****. she even recently posted a picture of her all naked, exposing her BLACK UGLY TITS. YUCK. And het stay video was totally PORN.

    I’m not even about to entertain this post or whatever the dream is talking about, but I will say this, I’m happy that she’s going in the same direction as 4, that was her strongest project next to DIL. With no too ten singles the album along with the single went multi platinum with the support of people who know and love good music. As for Rihanna Rated R is still my Fav project from her since GGGB, the sound, bass, quality of that album was everything to me.

    Rated R shits on 4 quality wise, one of the best albums ever. Oh and HIVE are comparing sales. Really? Rated R outsold it even though RTW was a dance song as a first single and Russian Roulette was a ballad. Plus Beyonce had Countdown/LOve on Top/End of Time, other fast songs that were released as singles like Rihanna had Rude Boy/Hard/Te Amo, so it’s pretty equal. And no Beyonce’s fans, 4 has not sold 3 million, it has yet to reach it. And no, 4 is not a classic album, it’s very boring and people barely remember it. Rated R is at 3 + million though, not at 3.5!

    IN MY OPINION, “4″ was beyonces best album. Vocally, lyrically & musically it slayed. It wasn’t full of her typical booty twerking jams, but she FINALLY got a chance to do what she WANTED to do…..and that’s HEARTFELT music. The album would’ve sold more if she didn’t release 29650789975447 singles at once. Her pregnancy didn’t help either.

    IN MY OPINION, “Rated R” was Rihanna’s best album. The production was stellar, and the lyrics were out of this world. I also loved her fashion during that era. Vocally, “Unapologetic” is her best album.

    The Dream was just saying how both albums were unappreciated, and it doesn’t help that he produced songs on both of them. :)

    @ Beyfraud Armstrong

    .

    Oh please, Rated R was quality whilst 4closure is trash.
    ___________________________________________

    QUALITY, versatility, lyrical content :
    “4″ >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> any Rihanna album so far.

    .

    .

    Rated R was personal whereas 4closure was trying to jump on the Adele bandwagon.
    ___________________________________________

    Both of them were personal!

    And how do you know “4″ was “trying to jump on the Adele bandwagon”?

    Did Adele NOT say, from her very own lips, that Beyonce is her very main inspiration AND idol?

    Your logic is so f***** up!!!

    .

    .

    Rated R had some top ten hits and a Hot 100 #1, 4closure had no hits, not even a top ten.
    ___________________________________________

    BREAKING NEWS : THE UNITED STATES IS NOT THE ONLY COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!!

    BREAKING NEWS II : BILLBOARD CHARTS CONSIST OF 100 POSITIONS, NOT 10!!!!!!!

    .

    .

    Rated R sold 3 million worldwide, 4closure is nowhere near that.
    ___________________________________________

    And how many YEARS did it take “Rated R” to sell 3 million? :roll:

    “4″ is just 200K behind the the 3 million mark, and it’s been out only since mid-2011. Plus it’s DVD has sold +250k at least!

    So miss me with this MATHEMATICALLY INVALID one.

    .

    .

    Rated R was perfect lyrically whereas 4closure is a generic ghetto mess (what the hell is Run the world, party, end of time, 1+1 algeba).
    ___________________________________________

    *1 = “4″ was trying to jump on Adele’s bandwagon
    *2 = “4″ was generic

    1 + 2 = “ADELE IS GENERIC”.

    #MATH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So UNTIL you prove how the hell is ADELE GENERIC, you’re nothing but a DELUSIONAL pressed c***!

    :lol:

    Secondly, when your faves are Britney, Katy and Rihanna, then you got no room to talk, and you can only stuff a big Black d*** in that c**-swallowing mouth of yours and shut the f*** up!

    4 HAS NOT SOLD 3 MILLION WW? RECEIPTS?
    ___________________________________________________________
    Where’s your proof that 4 has sold 3 million? And don’t bring me articles from random sites about it like they claim that Dangerously in Love has sold 11 million but it didn’t, it is at 8.5 million. It used to be 2.8, then 3 million and now 3.2 million lol like really? Where do you see 4 charting? Even if it does, it’s at the bottom of the charts (this week thanks to SB performance). It was at 2.1 at the end of 2011. You are telling that it has sold 900 000 copies since then during 2012? It wasn’t even charting in 2012 in other countries but the USA. It has yet to reach 600 000 copies in the UK, so it’s at 2.5-2.6 million max.

    Plus, Metacritic (for those who say that Rated R is not critically acclaimed)

    Rated R – 75
    4 – 73

    SO HUGE SALES AND HITS MEANS QUALITY EXPLAIN WHY “OUR VERSION OF EVENTS” AND “KALEIDOSCOPE DREAM” DON’T HAVE BIG SALES.

    EXPALIN WHY ARTIST LIKE JOJO, EMELI SANDE, MIGUEL, LUKE JAMES, BON IVER, TAMIA AND SO ON DON’T HAVE HITS AND BIG SALES.

    AND IS JUSTIN BEIBER REALLY THE PICTURE OF QUALITY MUSIC AND TALENT BECAUSE HE HAS HITS AND HUGE SALES.

    ___________
    Comparsion
    ___________

    BEYONCE:
    1- Album sales = 27 million solo + 41 million as the leader of DC3 + 3.2 million DVDs solo.
    2- Tours = $220 million solo + $150 million collabo + MCSWT is slaying worldwide
    3- Box Office gross = $885 million (300% #WIN), 3 movies grossed +100 million above the budget.
    4- Grammys = 17, World Music Legend awards = 3
    5- Wealth = $400 million ($255 million in just 3 years)

    RIHANNA:
    1- Album sales = 29 million
    2- Tours = $187 million
    3- Box Office = One movie grossed $303 million (155% the budget #FLOP), and it didn’t make more than $98 above the budget.
    4- Grammys = 7, World Music Legend awards = 0
    5- Wealth = Somewhere under $150 million

    .

    .

    .

    I think it’s clear which one of them is a “flop” compared to the other by now, right?

    they are in the same place as they were in four, but moving forward?
    If they are in the same place then theres no progression
    I didn’t think i would say it but although i’m bored by both of these singers
    mostly due to over exposure in the media i’m finding rihanna a bit more interesting to watch, she’s not the performer beyonce is but beyonce is doing the same thing all the time now.
    Rihanna makes herself look ridiculous with the bad gyal weed smoking antics and immaturity but beyonce appointing herself as some kind of queen over womankind is equally out of touch with reality.

    I find it shallow that people always raise the issue of money and how much each artist has made as some kind of achievement.
    Is beyonce paying the bills of people who say she is the greatest thing since slice bread because of how much money she’s earned?
    Are the people that bring up money all the time aware that new york has it’s highest rate of homeless people in history right now?
    Beyonce could cloth and feed all those people tomorrow, but instead shes paying $56 for every nail she wore at the superbowl?
    Its her money she can do what she wants with it, and it might not be her responsibility to intervene to help people who don’t have the things she has but it sort of makes me feel sick that she’s talking about how expense her babys bootys costs when people are out begging for food.
    We need to be very careful who we hold up as role models, because actions speak louder than bank balances.

    His justification was a total mess. 4 was nothing like Rated R, they had completely different tones, styles, purposes and life influences! What a dumb f***, Im a Bey fan and Im not even mad cos its about Ri because I liked Rated R that was her best album IMO, but they were soooo different. Only reason I can think of why he would say that is maybe he means generally in terms of how personal they were to the artist!

    TGJ got it right. Bey’s problem with ’4′ was the lead single. As far as quality goes, it was her best sounding album till date. It wasn’t meant for commercial success, and her singles are proof of that. The woman knows how to make #1 singles, but she’s trying to do it with out being generic, redundant, and predictable. She chooses quality over quantity, and the masses respect that. That’s why it didn’t take her 7 years to get a mf #1 album and why she is one of the most, if not the most, awarded artist in history

    Rihanna may have more #1 singles, but Beyonce definitely has more memorable songs. Facts

    Who the hell is praising Taylor Swift on this post? lol when was this about her? Btw even Rihanna sounds better. That girl can´t sing and her songs are for 10 years old kids, just horrible. Her performance at the grammys was so mediocre, she had the biggest theatrics of the night and still managed to be the worst performance, nobody stood up. Both Beyonce and Rihanna slay Taylor Swift.

    “But Seriously Rihtard Has A Better Catalog Of Meaningful Songs Than Beyonce!”

    ^Girl bye. Every last one of Beyonce’s songs in some way, shape or form are talking about female empowerment. While I agree that ‘Rated R’ was Rihanna’s best and most meaningful catalog of work because it was so vulnerable, i can’t see how any of her other songs, with the exception of her ‘Irreplaceable’ inspired song “Take a bow”, are meaningful.

    Beyonce music lets women know that they can do whatever they set their mind to and encourages them not to settle for anything less then greatness- almost all of her songs share that theme.

    Rihanna’s ,on the other hand, encourages people to have s**, party, and love- which isn’t necessarily bad, but is in noway shape or form meaningful.

    Well, well well the so called King having to use Rih as a reference.

    4 was not rated Rated R. Rated R came off the bacl of a world breaking incident. Beyonce has not had that. Rated R had the hair and image to match. Beyonce stll was fat with blonde wig.

    CASE CLOSed. LOL LOL LOL LOL BEYONCE IS REALLY STRUGGLING TO KEEP UP WITH RIHANNA.

    Dream needs to STFU and Bey should stop working with him. Why would he say such foolishness? Let’s get one thing straight, Rihanna can’t sing. I repeat, Rihanna can’t sing. Rihanna doesn’t have soul, Rihanna doesn’t have pure emotion, Rihanna can’t even help write her lyrics or come up with a melody, Rihanna can’t even help produce. Queen Bey on the other hand does all of those things and does it well. 4 was not a flop. You want to know why? It’s because it was mostly an R&B ALBUM!!!!! What R&B album do you know sold more than 2 million? Bey’s 4 sold over 3 million worldwide. That’s pretty damn good for no hits and her having a baby. Plus, Bey should never be compared to such retarded trash. Rihanna will always be known for being an immature, ghetto hoodrat who took her abuser back.

    Fire Bomb>>>>>>>Beyonce’s entire catalog of music

    Rihanna’s Rated R has a higher metacritic score than ANY of Beyonce’s albums….there’s your critical acclaim right there!

    Rated R sold 1+ Million in the US..and 3+ Million WW in 1 year
    4 sold 1+ Million in the US in 6 months…and 2.3 Million WW in 2 years

    4′s first single- A Typical Beyonce song (Run The World)- Flopped
    Rated R’s first single- Completely different for Rih (Russian Roulette)- Top 10(#9)

    Rated R might have been more of a commercial success… which isn’t saying a lot since it was just as much of a “flop” as 4 LMFAO. But I still liked 4 more, the vocals on that album were amazing and really made me respect Beyonce’s artistry as a whole. Plus, its a critically acclaimed, number # 1, platinum, grammy award winning album… I can’t say the same for Rated R lololol. At the end of the day, both ladies are beautiful and have some pretty good songs, but I’ll always have more respect for Beyonce… Flop or not lol, the woman has raw talent. That’s all that I really care about(:

    Beyonce doesn’t have great music coming from a female who heard all of her songs if anything her better songs came from destiny’s child after dangerously in love she has fallen off musically if you think get me bodied Kitty Kat diva ego video phone or countdown is anything legendary you need too have several her Sasha fierce album was poorly acclaimed and 4 was a vocally talented album not anything groundbreaking there’s more to music than just techniques makes some groundbreaking lyrics for once in your life make some mature music that caters to middle aged people those are the type that actually buys albums

    Both are their best albums and my favorite by them. I will say this, RR have 2 top tens and s #1 hit, while 4 is be a timeless album that I think will cross to the next few decades.

    The Dream didn’t compare their sounds, he compared the way the general public received their albums! People were thrown off when they heard 4, and the same for Rated R. I don’t understand why theres always a stan war going on when TGJ talks about Rihanna, or Beyonce. Rihanna is a talented gal with lots of success, but Its clear that Beyonce is more established, the better singer, and a better performer. This can be proven by her Superbowl performance a couple weeks ago. I love Rihanna but Beyonce is so ahead of her, its kinda incomparable.

    I feel sorry for you because you got no receipts to the numbers you’re giving.

    Until you give us the #RECEIPTS, ’4′ remains unbothered with 1.5 million sold outside the states!!!

    Blah. Baddie Bey has more years than Rihanna but it didn’t take long for Rihanna to snatch that lace front. Rated R had top 10 hits and sold 3.5 million copies. Rated R was a bigger success than 4lop plus rated R had better songs. Compare it AGLM, well even AGLM did better than 4lop. Lets compare it to MOTS because I don’t know wjhat 4lop has done.

    Rated R is an album I play today. It’s fresh and the music is far better than 4. Actually to compare those two are insulting.

    Beyonce can sing, but she does not feel what she is signing or it’s not believable. Rihanna may not have the best vocal abilities, but you can tell that’s it is her in her music whether you like it or not.

    Imagine if Rihanna had the platform and promotion, that Beyonce have, how do you think she would be selling now. She is already outselling Beyonce, with all the negative about her relatiohship. Beyonce promoting on every big stage in America and on cable to tv, lets see with all this promotion does. You can’t name one big celebrity, Adele, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, who has had this type of promotion that Beyonce has had. She better come out like a King, and not a peasant.

    Um…no. Rated R has amazing, dark, interesting, innovative and complex songs. “4″ is just Beyonce telling The-Dream to write 90′s style and Michael Jackson inspired R&B.

    Rated R as far the the Tone,Lyrics and sales >>>>>>> Beyonce’s 4

    The thing about Rihanna is that we know he mistakes and incidents, which make her human, Beyonce said herself that she is a perfectionist, which doesn’t make me interested in anything about her. And preferably, her music sucks IMO <3 Rihanna!!!
