Rihanna Chart Update

Published: Wednesday 6th Jun 2007 by Sam
It appears that even after the massive success of ‘Umbrella’ and a huge promotional campaign, Rihanna’s latest LP ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’ won’t be debuting at #1 on the Billboard 200.
According to Hits Daily Double’s analysis of first day sales, Rihanna will vie for the #2 or #3 position with T-Pain – whose ‘Epiphany’ album was also released yesterday. Both artists are expected to sell in the region of 160-170k in their opening week. Ex-Beatle Paul McCartney is tipped to take the top spot with his latest effort.
I’m kinda surprised by this. Def Jam haven’t been behind an artist this much since Mariah’s comeback and to think that after all that she won’t debut in the top spot. Then again, the opening numbers will be Rihanna’s highest yet. Surely that’s an achievement?

What do you think?

    promo doesn’t mean s***. she’s a wack artist with weak voclas. catchy songs don’t make people run and buy your record. her new image, i think, f***** her up. she should have rode this rock thing but kept it carribean with a slight upgrade. she’s been so grunge and rockerish, rihanna is just lame, her cd was all over the place trying to have so many styles, pick one and rock with it.

    Her album sucked..I was previewing it on iTunes and I was really disappointed. I liked ‘Cry’ & ‘Haunted’ which are only on the Japan release. I don’t see any hit songs on the album. She could’ve done way better.

    Quite shocking, I guess people still don’t consider her an artist; however, this is album is HOT w/many possible hit POP songs!

    May her label should have done the tactics Sony did with Beyonce to force a number 1.

    It’s only the first week I’m sure she will improve I mean all of her albums have went platnium and I’m sure this one will be no different.

    wow, ciara did like 350 in the first week. i feel like rihanna gets more hype, considered more beautiful, gets mtv support more than ciara…yet ciara still outsells her. interesting

    mtv must not mean s*** now a days. rhianna’s video is #1 on mtv and it has this in sales. same thing happened to hillary duff.

    i guess black artist should focus on BET more

    Well her album was basically leaked onto the internet even before her album was even released. Either people could have already heard half the songs on the album already off the internet and decided not to buy the album since it was slightly alot more Pop. Different from her usual music works.. maybe she should have just stuck to her old material but i guess change is good..Here album really is okay, but its more Pop than R&B. Hopefully her album will gain more sales in the following weeks

    A lot of y’all act like the official sales for her 1st week have been posted. This post just says that from first day sales, predictions are she wont be number one and will sell an approximate number. That is going off one day. Suppose the majority of her fans and whoever else wants the album goes out this weekend or any other day of the week and buys the album? Then this post is just that, a prediction that may be wrong. The album definitely won’t flop in my opinion.
