    Im only here for Kendrick – i hope for the sake of Hip-hop his album goes platinum.
    Francine Rivers is boring.
    Aubrey started from Degrassi.

      I really want Kendrick to achieve the sort of success Drake has. Love his flow and his album.

      • the real xoxo March 2, 2013

        he wont because Drake’s music is more playable by teenage girls compared to Kendricks.

  14. Monstarebel March 2, 2013

    Love on flop took two years to go platinum thats sad f***……

  15. Dane March 2, 2013

    How is a single selling one million copies in the states a “FLOP”… Ugh. I wish some of these f*** go get a damn career instead of talking gay s*** over the internet….

    • beyonce superbowl ratings flop March 2, 2013

      when it takes 2 years and tons of promo like VMA and superbowl, where the bounce came from, it is a flop. Rih singles sell that without a video.

  16. beyonce superbowl ratings flop March 2, 2013

    LOL LOL Pour it up is not even officially released and it does not have a video.

    • RICHANDBLACK11 March 2, 2013

      yas it is in on the radio all the time boo, stop trying it. If that’s the case I can say the same for love on top because it was officially released until the mid of last year.

      • beyonce superbowl ratings flop March 2, 2013

        It is only radio, due the people request it you dumb black nappy c***, but DEF JAM HAS NOT MAD THIS THE OFFICIAL SECOND SINGEL. STAY IS THE SECOND GLOBAL SINGLE. BUT hey! It is near gold so rih and navy sleep good, while your face could only dream of having charts slay as easy as this.

      • beyonce superbowl ratings flop March 2, 2013

        Love on top was released on dec 2011 and performed at the VMA. You tried f*** you

  17. beyonce superbowl ratings flop March 2, 2013

    This drake song goes hard. It sound like a NYC joint, like GET RICH OR DIE Trying type s***. Like many men by 50 cent. I can see why it is a hit.

    • truth(icki is a KMART, NO GRAMMY NOD, PFRR FLOP, SQUID EYED b****) March 3, 2013

      Sissy

  18. beyonce superbowl ratings flop March 2, 2013

    Pour it up and love song are not her official single, you dumb c***. She is still riding of Diamonds which has sold 4 million. I think even over a million in the USA. If PNDR has sold 2 million in the USA, then diamonds will sell more. Stay is the official second single and that debuted on BB with 300k first week, so it is GOLD BY NOW AND WILL pLATINUM LIKE ALL HER SINGLES. WHY DID u use PIU and not t stay? Another sick hateful nutty black person trying hard to create a evil sory
    ry that does not exist. BRING THE SALES figues for her second single, Stay?

    • beyonce superbowl ratings flop March 2, 2013

      WOW, you fell in your own s***. Tryna diss Pour it up? LOL LOL you have just told how much it has sold. It is near gold and it was not even meant to be released. She has stay, but they wanted to go wih Right now. BEYONCE wishes her fans good dowload her sons to be near gold before the release date.

      So, by the looks of things, Diamonds, Stay, PIU AND LOVE SONG WILL ALL BE PLATINUM IN THE USA, AS WELL AS UNA. WHEN WILL RITA WHORA AND BEYONCE?

      HA HA HA CLAPBACK!

  19. beyonce superbowl ratings flop March 2, 2013

    POUR it up is not a single and yet is near gold. But guess what n****, due to popular demand, they are gonna make a video for pour it up. She tweeted pics from Sony studio’s and the remix will feature rick ross, TI etc

    • truth(icki is a KMART, NO GRAMMY NOD, PFRR FLOP, SQUID EYED b****) March 3, 2013
