While the last few years have seen the star struggle to live up to her hype in the US, the UK has always been more than happy to accomodate Brand Rihanna and her unashamed brand of ‘Microwave Pop’.
That is..until this week.
For, in what might be indicate a decline in interest in her latest album ‘Unapologetic‘, she has suffered falls on a number of charts in the market.
Full story below…
After failing to secure the #1 spot, ‘Stay‘ slips out of the Top Ten and is forced to make do with the #12 spot, while ‘Diamonds’ sits well below the Top 20 at #31.
All this, as ‘Unapologetic’ drops five spots to #20, outsold by Taylor Swift‘s ‘RED’ and Bruno Mars’ ‘Unorthodox Jukebox’ which rose to #6 after spending last week at #8. Pretty sad, considering Swift’s release debuted weeks before hers did.
However, all is not lost.
That’s right, thanks to their respective fan bases, Beyonce & Justin Timberlake have made significant gains on in the nation, with the latter’s new single ‘Mirrors’ soaring to #1 and B’s ‘I Am’ rises to #13 on the Urban tally 219 weeks after launch.
Meanwhile, Emeli Sande ‘Our Version Of Events’ holds court atop every other album in the nation, further extending its lead as the closest thing the world has seen to Adele‘s ’21’ since its Virgin fuelled release.
Here’s hoping things pick up for Rihanna in the coming week.
Another Chris Brown quote perhaps?
