Rihanna’s ‘Disturbia’ Hits #1

Published: Thursday 14th Aug 2008 by Sam
Rihanna's 'Disturbia' Hits #1Def Jam star Rihanna has landed her 4th #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week with ‘Disturbia’. According to Nielsen Soundscan, the track jumped from #3-#1 this week, leap-frogging rumored boyfriend Chris Brown’s ‘Forever’ which remains at #2 for a second week.
It’s interesting to note that 3 of the 4 of the 20 year old’s US #1’s have been from her most recent LP ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’.
Congratulations where congratulations are due; it’s an amazing feat for such a young artist. That said, it goes to show how far questionable talent mixed with killer promo and a label/management constructed image can take you. Evidently very far….well far enough for the quality of the garbage you insist on putting out to not be a factor of your success. Go Rihanna!

    Not worthy at all. Im not surprised this garbage went to #1. This girl has based a career on looks plus a good PR team. Ya’ll are deluded if you say other wise. Wonder who the next “it” girl will be to come take her spot.

    Congrats to Rihanna, but let’s be serious ya’ll…Disturbia is #1 becuz of downloads and not airplay…that goes with her other single “Take A Bow” she has an amazing PR team that will throw her singles out to everyone.

    That’s why Jay-Z calls her an commercial artist because she’s appealing to the eyes and that she has the best producers n songwriters to write songs for her lol.

    TAKE A BOW is #1 on HOT 100 airplay for 5 WEEKS in a ROW…

    Disturbia is #1 based on downloads, just like Take a Bow was a couple months ago. Try an match that feat.

    Stop hating. Just go to Billboard.com and find out.

    I think Disturbia is a great song to listen to but I would hate to hear what she will do to it live. I hope she doesnt perform it on Fashion Rocks. No we just see what heavy promo does, let her enjoy in now cause the clock is ticking fast for the Queen to make her return and show all these b****** how to do it. Team Bey!

    fyi – ms kelly ids def not a flop in err country and is quite the opposite – rihanna didnt blow up til 3rd album – will see what happens with kelly – an ps kelly’s songs has meaning and its rnb soul – u can hear the passion and soul in her voice – rihanna is all studio – put her as son stage live and see wassup…….ms kelly doesnt have the a list promo but she will so im not worried. as long as she still continues to do soulful music i will always be a fan

  27. tia August 14, 2008

    you know what….i am so sick of her and i can no longer be mad when people want bee to sit down somewhere,i mean even though i cant enough others who dont like her would want to throw up in their mouth a little and that is exactly how i am feeling about this chick right about now

    i apologize beyonce haters (aka rihanna stans)…..i now feel your pain

  28. Young One August 14, 2008

    Like her or not, She can sell the s*** out some singles boy. She’s dominating this Itunes single sales thing. But like Sam said, its a wonder how all these singles are coming from her latest album, I dont think she’s gonna be able to top this but whatever. Congrats but I’m not really suprised, anything can go #1 these days, Ask Soulja Boy, LOL!

  29. Anonymous August 14, 2008

    Rihanna has talent, she can sing. If she couldn’t, she wouldn’t sing live everytime she performed. Her voice isn’t amazing, but saying she has little to no talent creates a principle that everyone signed to her label or gets as much promo would be as successful as her. I have liked the songs, then liking Rihanna comes after that, so you can’t blame it on promo. It’s a great song, and while it is still a very commercial song it is different to most of what is out there.

  30. Anonymous August 14, 2008

    Rihanna stinks…disturbia isnt a bad song..but #1???f*** no. She sounds bad on recorded songs and sounds AWFUL LIVE. She has NO stage presence. The second comment about solange…her music has substance..and soul..

    rihann’s s*** has NO point..i mean i can get someone 2 write 4 me and sing and go number one if thats the case….

    I wont lie…she takes a GREAT PICTURE…but shes not all that attractive 2 me.

    I DONT GIVE A GOD GIVEN S*** WHAT ANYBODY SAYS..HER VOICES IS FLAT. SHE SOUNDS LIKE A ROBOT..ITS SOO BAD…I WANNA LIKE “UNFAITHFUL” BUT SHE SOUNDS TERRIBLE..IF SOMEONE IF WOULDA HAVE SUNG THAT SONG IT WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER.

    The main point is that if Rihanna wrote her own music she would suck. She has talent but has a long way to go. Kelly Rowland can out perform Rihanna any day. For that not Michelle could too.

    Rihanna is working with good promo and good looks. Beyonce is working with all of that plus she can actually sing. People always say “No one can jump around and do all that and still be able to sing” but people fail to forget that her dad made her run miles and sing at the same time.

    I enjoy Rihanna’s music but she is just a studio singer and nothing more.

    **********************************************

    WOW, Your right that is kinda odd, that she has 5 Top Ten Hits including 3 #1’s, and Still is under 2 Million, Yet Alicia Keys had only 1 Hit off of her album and she is Triple Platinum, samething with B-Day, it had 2 Top Ten hits and still did 2 Million before it was Re-released! WOW! Rihanna has great singles in The US but it will take her a year and a half before she reaches 2 million. WOW!!!

    I agree with the majority of you that RiRi is only where she is because of promotion. All of you Rihanna stans who will cut a b**** up if anyone says something bad about their beloved queen, please tell me if you really think she can sing, just tell me. As a singer that is the main thing they should be good at, dancing, etc. should be secondary, take away all the dancing, backing tape,etc. and let Miss RiRi sing acapella, then let Beyonce, Whitney, Mariah(sometimes) and even Ashanti sing acapella then you’ll see the difference.

    Im just waiting for the hottest chick in the game to return. BEYONCE WE NEED YOU !!!

    I agree with anonymous. Rihanna is a lil pop tart image robot that Def Jam and Jay-Z created. She completely changed her image every album, first good lil sweetheart, then s*** beyonce wanna be vixen, then this bad girl s*** she’s trying to do. i wonder what her next image change is going to be, because people arent gonna buy into this gggb s*** for very much longer either. Everything about her is just so made up to me, and most of the time when people compliment her, it’s because of her fashion choices, not her talent. So hell, why doesn’t she just become a model, she has the look and build for it. what she doesn’t have is enough talent to be relevant 20 years from now, i’m sorry but that’s just how i feel

  41. Treecie August 14, 2008

    Sam, keep it real baby. Rihanna and her stans are a hot mess. She’s nothing but a lucky tramp who just so happen to get the right people around her. She can’t sing, she can’t dance, and without a stylit, the tramp can’t dress. Y’all know how she used to look.

    Yeah Ms. Tina still dresses Beyonce and stuff, but at least beyonce gives (and headlines) a good show. Not to mention Beyonce be killin these h*** on the vocal tip. Team Bee b!tches!!

    Big ups to Sam

  42. Chase August 14, 2008

    I’m going to be honest, I’ve yet to hear Disturbia in the club or on radio (I live in Florida). I’m starting to wonder if Def Jam is doing a little pay-o-la, or if I’ve just caught a lucky break.

    Whatever Rihanna does next, it’s going to have be hard to top this kind of success so soon.

  43. SG3 August 14, 2008

    I know every1 has a right to their own opinion, but DAMN. Rihanna doing something right, b/c call it what you want but I smell haters…I agree, Disturbia, is that BS. But ya’ll act like this is new. There have been so many other artist who blew up and were just extremely hot for a certain period of time. Everything they touched went to #1, etc. But Sam I use to respect ur opinion on this girl, but damn did she do something to you personally? I’m not a Rihanna fan at all (But definately she has had some good songs here and there btwn all of her albums), but this is a woman of color doing her thing, be proud that she is doing something positive. Did we give Britney, and all the other carbon copies this much flack when they were the “it” girl.

    So don’t just dismiss the girls accomplishments w/ good promo, etc. B/C we all know, the artist is human and they work their assess off everyday to keep their name and product out there as well.

    Keep doing your thing Rihanna, I ain’t mad at you. Cuz I can’t sing worth a damn, but if I could get my shine on I as well as all the others in here, will do the same. Making that paper.

    Where’s the Love people?

  44. Cathy August 14, 2008

    she may not be the best singer around, but she definitely deserves this.
    she’s worked so hard to be up there, and she’s probably gonna be around for a while clogging the radio up with her songs, LOL

  45. SG3 August 14, 2008

    @ the person who said, "Im just waiting for the hottest chick in the game to return. BEYONCE WE NEED YOU !!!"

    Beyonce does her thing to (she is a hell of an entertainer), but vocally Brandy and Monica about to bring the R&B game back to where it belongs. Cuz ain't nobody in the game right now touching those two girls vocally.

    RESPECT TO SG3, UR THE ONLY ONE WHO SAID SOMETHING SENSIBLE

    WITHOUT SLAGGING OFF RIHANNA OR HER FANS.

    I BELIEVE THERE IS A ENOUGH ROOM FOR RIHANNA, KELLY ROWLAND,BEYONCE, BRANDY AND MONICA. NAMES MENTION FROM POSTS^

    STOP HATING PEOPLE, OK SO HER MUSIC MIGHT NOT BE UR TASTE.

    RIHANNA IS NOT DRUGGIE LIKE AMY WINEHOUSE BUT AW SEEMS TO GET MORE RESPECT FOR BEING A HOT MESS

    SHE DOESN’T SEEM ARROGANT LIKE P DIDDY

    SHE IS NOT ATTENTION SEEKER LIKE PARIS HILTON

    SHE DOESN’T SLAG OFF OTHER CELEBRITIES, LIKE SOME

    WHY CAN’T THE MAJORITY OF U BE HAPPY THAT A YOUNG BLACK GIRL IS DOING SO WELL IN MUSIC/MEDIA AND WHY SHOULD BEYONCE BE THE ONLY ONE TO DESERVE SUCCESS IN UR EYES?

    I THINK IT JUST THE MAJORITY OF BLACK PEOPLE WHO PREFER OTHER RNB SINGERS TO RIHANNA AND DON’T THINK SHE SHOULD BE
    NUMBER 1 BECAUSE THEY BELIEVE, SHE DOESN’T HAVE THE BEST VOICE, WHO ARE HATING.

    WELL YOU DON’T HAVE TO HAVE THE BEST TO BE A SINGER AND AT LEAST RI HAS A UNIQUE VOICE, WHICH SETS HER APART

    STOP HATING PEOPLE, SINGERS GIVE US MUSIC, WHAT U DON’T LIKE
    SOMEONE ELSE LIKES LISTENING TO, rock/pop/r’n’b/hip pop/soul/indie/swing/jazz/blues, u name it

    LOVE MUSIC, DON’T HATE THE GAME, DON’T HATE THE GIRL

    i actually didnt like the song until the video was released and now i love it.

  52. Katrina (pronounced Kay-Trina) August 14, 2008

    Its not even about her music being our taste, its about the fact that she's not talented whatsoever. Britney can't sing for s***, but she used to be able to put on a hell of a show. Christina A. & Monica can't dance but they SURE can sing like hell. Beyonce, Michelle & Kelly can do both.

    This is clearly an overexposure Issue. everytime I turn around she's being congratulated for another accolade hat she doesn't deserve at all. She's in every magazine.

    And we should be happy to see a little black girl make it? child please, Bee made it, Monica made it, Brandy made it, Amerie made it (a lil' bit). So we were happy before that rihanna girl came along

    But to be frankly honest, most rihanna fans I know are white girls. Little black girls ain't peepin rihanna for real. All they see is a girl who can dress. They don't emulate her, they don't praise her, and they sure ain't buying her albums either. If they were she would've done better. As a matter of fact, who is buying her album? Cuz even with a rerelease this chick has weak ass sales in comparison to her popularity

    not too sound rude but sam everytime you talk about rihanna you sound like a bitter ex-boyfriend or something it’s not at all opinion or criticizism anymore it’s strictly personal and i’m trying to figure out why did she blow you off at a concert? or refuse to do an interview with you? let us know.

  62. SamIsA… August 14, 2008

    Aiden P, I will let you know. First of all, Samuel is q**** as a two dollar bill, so there goes your bitter ex-boyfriend theory. Now, Sammie hates Rihanna because his favorite artists can’t sell for s*** because no one likes them. Kelly Rowland, how you doin’?!

    And honestly, I like Michelle, I really do. But she won’t sell either, Sam. Just letting you know. Not over here in the great United States. SORRY!

    Now, for some damage control, GGGB is Platinum, this is true, in the US. However it is five times platinum worldwide. Check your facts I’m just saying.

    Samuel, my advice to you, stop hating! Get off her c*** and realize that your artists will never be sucessful. Nobody cares for Kelly, she’s just that dark skinned odd ball from Destiny’s Child, same with Solange, you REALLY think she is going to sell with the wack s*** she has been putting out? “I Decided?!” HA! I decided to turn the TV off when I saw the video!

    Ah, congratulations to Rihanna, she deserves this. Girl works so, so, so much harder than all these other ho out here. Congrats to Chris Breeze, too, getting that paper.

    And I must say, we know that I HATE BeYAWNce with a burning passion, I am starting to miss her.

    HOW YOU DOIN’, SAMMIE HON?!?!

    So 1st off WHy can't Female R&B/female black singers' FANS never decide that not only 1 chick can rule the game???

    Because I am not the biggest Rihanna fan, and it pisses me off that nothing Beyonce touches can be called bad….

    …BUT they both do have some killer songs, in my opinion. And seriously in Beyonce's absense Rihanna has filled the spot for the R&B (slash) / Pop female superstar. hate it or love it. It's true.

    Also to me saying Rihanna's voice is not the best thing in the world to me is valid. Because it's well done on tracks but live [to me] could get seriously annoying!!

    I didn't like "Disturbia," much at first, but I really like it now. To me it's the vibe/genre that fits her best…

    But why can't other singers get the right shine they deserve as well, such as:

    Ashanti [who has a GREAT album out now…]
    Amerie [I really like her style and voice too]
    ->And the list goes on.

    Screw f****** for tracks, this b**** is f****** for #1’s. I havent heard Disturbia once on the radio,even though its a good song. I dont think it’s a number one type song. It is better that mess Chris Brown called Forever that was also #1….BEYONCE COME BACK. WE NEED YOU. SOME LOVE YOU. SOME HATE YOU BUT SECRETLY LOVE YOU. COME BACK.

    We will all see who is the best with the showdown at Fashion Rocks 08!

    like it or not Rihanna turn up the heat on beyonce.3 number 1’s 2 more in the top 5 plus 1 number 13 off 1 album. 5.3 million worldwide. B day only had 1 number 1. ppl talk about Rihanna pr team. name me one top female artist without a good pr team? you want Kelly Rowland to leave matthew because he don’t promote her, yet you b**** about Rihanna only have hits because of her pr team.

  75. Young One August 14, 2008

    Like I said, No doubt Rihanna got Hits, even Stevie Wonder can see that, BUT since yall going by comparison. If B’Day is Beyonce’s worst album and its only her second but it sold 6/7 million worldwde with only 3 Hits and Irreplaceable really was the standout! BUT look at what all Rihanna has done, but she cant outsell B’Day, she’s suppose to be at like 8 million with all of these hits. But It took her FOREVER to get 5 Million and she still aint double in the US yet!

    So it says that Rihanna’s best=Beyonce’s WORST! WOW!!! I like them both, but I’m just stating!

    Beyoncé is much better than ugly Rihanna. I hate her! RiRi hasn’t got any own style. She’s a Beyonce-copy.
    Beyonce has sold over 17 millions copies with her 2 albums worldwide, but Rihanna has sold only 10 millions with 3 (!) albums… Haahaha!!!
    Beyonce is the queen!!!

    ppl has been taking a second look at GGGB that’s why its till in the top 10 after 62 weeks on the chart Since its re-release it sold 80,000 first and average over 40,000 every week since. its the most sales gainer on the album chart this week moving from 12 to 8. Bday was not this good when it was it was re release. Bday was release 10 months before GGGB, yet they almost have the same amount of sales worldwide. song for song GGGB is the better album

    pff y’all are stupid…

    1/ I like the fact that Rihanna stans can’t support her without hating the other chicks

    2/ I like the fact that RIhanna haters have to compare her to every chicks in the game

    3/ I like the fact that Rihanna can’t do anything on stage because it just shows that she’s #1 only because of her production/PR not because of her “talent” !

    BUT FOR EVERYBODY : RIRI NOW GOT HER OWN LESBO-ISH STYLE SO STOP COMPARE AND LOVE/HATE HER HEALTHY !

    first and forthmost, i am unquestionably borderline insane over Robyn, second I heralded her success with the release of her actual “quality-centric” music. The notion that two of her #1 hits are transcendant of the re release lp of gggb is catastrophic. Those are publicity and promotion stunts to keep her near-master piece album in the media buzz. The true source of quality music resides in tracks such as “Rehab,”(fav) “Say It” and ” Quit Existing”

    You dumbass Rihalien stans need to get your facts straight. GGGB is nowhere near as successful as Bday. GGGB is barely over 1 million in the U.S. Bday sold over 7 mill and GGGB is close to 5 million.

    So Beyonce's worst album>>>>>>>>Rihalien best album.

    That should tell you something. When Rihalien wins 10 grammy's, sells over 130 million records, wins 150 awards, is lead singer of the best selling female group of all time, is the first female artist to be honored for international excellence, is the first singer on the cover of SI, is the first black woman to win ASCAP songwriter of the year, etc. When Rihalien does even 1/2 of what Beyonce has done, then you can compare.

    At least Beyonce wrote all her #1 singles. Rihalien dont even write her own songs. Beyonce is #4 on Forbes even when she on break and Rihalien is not even in the top 100.

    Rihalien is nothing but a no talent flat ass fivehead bald head ho. While she was helping her dad sell clothes out his trunk, Bey was collecting grammy's and rich as hell. Even Rihalien said she idolizes Beyonce and wants to be her.

    Rihalien is a dumb high school drop out who laid on her back for tracks. She dont have any talent. That's why she bald. She dont have no hair and she sound dumb in her interviews with that ugly accent. Cant nobody even understand what she says. So you Rihalien stans can go play in traffic because she will never be on Queen Bey level.

    You f****** idiots. You f****** idiots.

    All the Rihanna haters, that is all I think of you guys, it’s so sad. If you think she’s untalented stop commenting on her, you guys are obsessed, stop making yourselves look foolish.

    She’s #1 on Airplay and downloads so she has all the formats stop making up b******* to make her look bad, when you start hyping the lies to make her look bad you know your just that pathectic.

    And why is this success so important, if your happy with your favorite artists “talents” then back the f*** off Rihanna!

    Dumb b******

  97. SamIsA… August 16, 2008

    Ya’ll really are some stupid f****. I mean, this n**** above me going to say “I love Bee, but hate Rihanna.” What the f*** does that have to do with anything? Stupid heffer.

    To that other b****, uh-uh, Beyonce DOESN’T write all her number one hits. Beyonce didn’t do s*** on Irreplaceable, and no “coming up with the melody” doesn’t NOT count as writing.

    To the same person, that just shows your stipidity! You name everything BeYAWNce has done, “the first this, that” OK, how could she be first is BeYAWNce did it first stupid? Second, fat ass has been in the industry longer than Rihanna, who has not been in the “the best selling girl group,” which is b******* might I add. Second, BeWHOREce was NOT the first black person on SI, Tyra Banks was you stupid s***.

    BeyStans are so damn ignorant, I swear. Ha, fat ass WISHES she could sell singles like “Umbrella,” “Take a Bow,” and “Disturbia.” Because really, she can’t. And your going to be remembered more for a single than an album, so don’t even pull that dumb s***.

    Get use to it, no one, and I mean no one cares for BeYAWNce anymore. She is done for. Mark my words, third album, just like the hot mess that was B’day, will flop. No matter how many times she releases it.

    Rihanna, is the future, get use to it!

    You are one delusional Rihalien stan. First of all Queen Bey is not fat because she got over 183 magazine covers that tell otherwise. Dont be mad because Rihalien has the body of a 12 year old boy with her flat ass/no hips/fivehead alien looking ass.

    Fact: Beyonce was the FIRST SINGER on the cover of SI. Learn how to read dumb f***.

    Fact: Beyonce wrote ALL of her #1 hits. Which is why she is the first black woman in history to win ASCAP songwriter of the year. Rihalien has never wrote a song in her life and the dumb b**** can barely speak English.

    Fact: Destiny’s Child is the BEST SELLING FEMALE GROUP OF ALL TIME. Check the 2005 WMA’s when they honored them. You remember because Rihalien no talent ass helped honor them because she got outshined by Tearra Marie and Amere when they sang “lose my breathe”. Did you forget that Rihalien admitted that she idolizes Beyonce? LMAO

    Fact: Rihalien hasnt accomplished even a 1/4 of what Beyonce has.

    Again when Rihalien wins 10 grammy’s, sells 130 million records, has every black female artist being compared to her, gets called the Queen by her peers and Monique/Usher, sells out arenas worldwide, can sing live, or can ever get a standing ovation for a performance instead of people texting through her performance (guy was texting during rihyawnna performance at the BET awards…LMAO), then and only then can RIHALIEN be mentioned in the same sentence as Beyonce.

    Rihalien has nowhere near as many hits as Beyonce, as many compliments as Beyonce,etc. Beyonce sings better, dances better, looks better, has more money, has more power, is more famous, etc.

    Beyonce kills her in every category. Rihalien stans need to just give it up. You will never win this argument because its a FACT that Rihalien is nowhere near Beyonce level. Period.

    Solange is 10x’s better than Rihanna. Hate on Solange all ya’ll want but she is about to climb the charts. Rihanna has disgraced music long enough now. Her time is up. That’s why the real queens and legends are coming out this upcoming fall. She had a good run though, but sorry boo boo Your bighead is about to booted

    If Beyonce and Kelly are so good why are at Rihanna website.Hahaha bunch of Retards no matter what you say,you cant deny the fact that Rihanna is making some serious success.She may not be the best singer but her songs rocks,her style rocks,She is intelligent and knows what she wants.P.S Beyonce doesn’t have that great of a voice,she screams half of the time.She can sing but at the same time nothing compared to MAriah,Whitney and Christina.Be can sing so how come 90% of her songs sucks what the f*** with suga mama,freakum dress,kitty kat LOl.I Rather listen to good girl gone bad Album then B’day anyday.Rihanna songs rock period!
