Rihanna Lines Up ‘Breaking Dishes’

Published: Wednesday 10th Sep 2008 by Sam
Rihanna Lines Up 'Breaking Dishes'It seems Rihanna’s team have saved the best till last; word has it ‘Breaking Dishes’ is the official next single to be lifted from the Bajan star’s LP ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’. Fans and critics alike have been calling for the song’s release ever since the album dropped back in April 2007.

Granted it’s good to see the song (definitely one of the so-so album’s best) get the single treatment, they really could have spared me alot of the nonsense they released in-between (i.e. ‘Shut Up & Drive’). What is this, single 7 or 8? I’m convinced had the right singles been released (and Ms. Fenty actually being up to the job of doing them justice live), the sales of her album would have been what one would expect at this stage (which currently stand barely past the 2million mark, despite 3 #1’s and a re-release).

Your thoughts?

    Maybe she will get some money off this one…But I think she is trying to be funny cause I read it’s coming out the same time Beyonce is coming out with something.

    All of RiRi’s singles from GGGB have been smash hits so it would sell the same numbers regardless of which songs were picked. People just aren’t interested in buying albums anymore plain and simple. Plus, it’s sold nearly 6 million copies worldwide.

    Who buys her shyt! Someone gave me her CD from someone who gave it to them, and I STILL can’t give it away! The songs, although catchy for POP America, becoming boring after a couple of rotations. And to listen to a whole CD of her singing through her nose and from the back of her throat is pure torture. Here’s a good release for you Rihanna….”Shut-up and Model.”

    She must be really desperate for some album revenue. A 7th single is really pushing it.

  9. Anonymous September 10, 2008

    its amazing how when is comes to rihanna sam says the album only sold 2 million which by the way is only the US amount. Why doesnt he speak about the UK numbers which are about past 4 million!!!!!!!!!!!

    ‘REHAB’ is definately the best song on the album!

  20. AaronMichael September 10, 2008

    I agree Sam…actually this album really should just be put to rest. Why would you need to release almost every song off the album as a single? She should be gearing up to release a brand new album at this point…which she might want to look into because a few other artist are getting ready to release some big albums.

  21. Anonymous September 10, 2008

    I think she should start work on a brand new album and I am a fan but
    come on now, it’s almost like the release’s from this album will run all the way to 2009. She should take a break for a while because people will get sick of her, but then again her releasing so many from gggb makes up for 2 release’s from her first album and 3 from her second album. The GGGB album has sold over 900,000 in the UK

    Go Rihanna, she’s doing so well and she’s around my age

  22. It’s Lewis, B****. September 10, 2008

    After Breaking Dishes she should definately take a break, get some lessons on how to perform better live and work on a smashing new album to come back with.

    I’m not dissing Rihanna, I’m a big fan of hers, but I do feel she needs to stop, up her game and show everyone why she is in the music industry. I have to say Breaking Dishes is one of my favourite tracks off the album and cannot wait to see a video for it!

    Sources reveal exclusively to PerezHilton.com that songstress Ciara’s one-two-stepping Vibe magazine to court because the shady pub – according to her – airbrushed all the clothes off of her in a recent cover photo.

    The song and dance queen appears to be naked on the October Vibe cover, but sources reveal exclusively to PerezHilton.com that she DID NOT pose nude and that she’s suing Vibe for making it appear as such.

    @ 12:41 pm. How in the world could anyone confuse Beyonce’s voice with Rihanna’s. Rihanna sings through her nose. The only cd one could confuse with Rihanna’s tone is possibly Keith Sweat. And I am not stan of either. But talent is talent, and Rihanna’s is all in her (average w/the team) looks. Period.

  32. fliznoyd September 10, 2008

    Rihanna’s marketing is all wrong. She isnt being marketed to her “natural” audience the R and B audience. Her cd is spotty becuz it has two decent urban songs Umbrella and Take a Bow, and the rest “edgy pop”.

    SO IF SHE SOLD 6(I DONT KNOW WHAT SHE ACTUALLY SOLD) MIL WORLD WIDE THAT WOULD BE 2 IN THE US AND 4 WHERE EVER ELSE NOT 2 HERE AND 6 EVERY WHERE ELSE….

    ITS 6 MIL ALL TOGETHER INCLUDING THE US…
    WORLD WIDE INCLUDES US SALES ALREADY…THATS WHY ITS CALLED WORLDWIDE

    ON ANOTHER NOTE…….WHAT REAL ARTIST RELEASES THAT MANY SINGLES…AND DONT SAY BEY BECAUSE HERS WAS A VIDEO ANTHOLOGY ALBUM..THEY WERNT SINGLES JUST VIDEOS…………AN ARTISH SHOULD HAVE TIME TO DEVELOPE THEIR TALENT…SHE WOULD BE AN EVEN BIGGER ARTIST IF SHE JUST DID THAT.

  34. Anonymous September 10, 2008

    Umbrella, Hate That I Love You, Shut Up and Drive, Don’t Stop The Music, Disturbia, Take A Bow, Now breaking Dishes!? and she’s only a little over 2million sold. I guess that marketing was all wrong. I think she should milked the singles out until they were dead.
    If she is trying to compete with Beyonce, then the queen will show her how it’s done!

  35. Naima September 10, 2008

    I am in the USA and with all the press and air play she gets, her album should be 5 mil in America and 10 mil worldwide. Alicia has sold more than that and has only like 3 singles and came out after GGGB

  36. Anonymous September 10, 2008

    I like Rehab more but this should be interesting either way. After this take a break homie and come back even harder. Haters fall back.

    Labels love to make the MOST money off of an album as possible thats why they’re doing this and that’s why Beyonce did all those videos that were premiered on national TV, that’s why Fergie and PCD get alot of singles as well. They would do this for Alicia Keys too but she doesn’t have as much “single” material on the album.

  37. Anonymous September 10, 2008

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

    So I mean technically any artist’s major goals fro man album SHOULD be to release as many singles as they can from it. So let that be known.

    So as for releasing a 7th single, I say good job to Rihanna. BUT if she isn’t getting paid right, and her label is f*cking her over… THATS SUCKS. Because at the end of the day, you still want to be making money off of your exposure, work, craft, etc.

    I also DO think that “Rehab,” would be a better single to release. I couldn’t hear “Breakin’ Dishes,” on the radio as we all heard “Umbrella.” And you know they’re tryign to go for the same vibe since The Dream wrote it as well.

    -K.

DEAL WITH IT! cause shes hot right now. and its so not a good lok if you wish the worst for somebody. envy is such a disease.

    Hating doesn’t have nothing to do with this. This album and been dragged thru the mud as it is. It is time to fallback and start a new album. I think it is too little too late for Breakin Dishes. That should have been the second single or something.

  42. Anonymous September 10, 2008

    lots of these other b****** cant even get a decent 1st single. look on that garbage ciara release. The worst song on GGGB is better than that s***. ppl need to stop acting like Rihanna is the one deciding what get release. LA make that decision And if the stats says he can get more mileage out of the album why not. Rehab will be on the Tyler Perry new movie soundtrack. If Rihanna was not selling CD’s you think LA Reid would have given her 8 videos? look what happen to Janet album. He shut that s*** down so fast like a bad habit because it was not selling

  43. miim September 10, 2008

    omg I have never laughed so hard at the Ri hating people here. I totally agree with them but I think. She is as good as buried now lets try and be positive about her music or more apropriately her entertaining career. Give the dog a bone. Although she is far from it. I think she realy should just model and stop singing. Last time I listened to her song I had cracthes on the back of my neck, it wasnt untill later I realised I was doing it to my self, to stop feeling the pains of iritation in my ears. But wow if she where to model, she’d make it as a super model!! she is a beauty!

  51. Anonymous September 10, 2008

    Coming out with a 7th single seems weird. Has that even been done before? It’s strange that she’s doing this. If the sales haven’t jumped after 6 singles, chances are they will stay the same at this point.

    BTW I think we’re going to be seeing a lot more of Rihanna guys. Word is, she signed a 6 album deal at Def Jam. Since she’s on the 4th one and she’s supposedly coming out with another studio album next year, I think she’s trying to get out of that contract as quick as possible the same way LL Cool J is finally getting out of his at the same label. Def Jam must be a shitty place for an artist to be. It’s a lot of unsatisfied people over there. I’m keeping my fingers crossed and hoping that Amerie will do well over there and finally get the shine she deserves.

  52. kira September 10, 2008

    she needs to let it go. take a break. go get vocal lessons. go to dance studio. let people miss you. damn what was the point of the rerelease if she still releasing songs off the original? she just putting more money in the dream’s pocket bc he wrote it. damn go practice ur song writing skills.

  57. mq1986 September 11, 2008

    I am reminded by the whole news break about Rihanna being (relatively) broke. Her money manager said that Rihanna did well on airplay, but lacked staying power in terms of her albums and sales, which was why Rihanna ended up losing so much money in the first place.

    Considering how disproportionately exposed she is to how much she actually sells, I think her money manager was definitely telling the truth. I enjoy Rihanna’s music–in the club, on the radio–but I don’t want to play it over and over to bask in her artistry and technical prowess. Her songs are fun to listen to, but I don’t think they really connect emotionally to people. It may be because of the way the songs are arranged or because of her voice or whatever (because lyrically and melodically, she has some good songs on her album), but what invariably happens with me is that I hear her song, enjoy it in the moment, and then forget it later.

    Alicia Keys and Rihanna are different artists with different styles. But I buy nearly everything Alicia Keys produces because even after I’m done listening to her songs, they leave an emotional impression on me. Maybe that’s why Alicia Keys is selling more without nearly as much promotion.

    But then again–the music industry’s a hard thing to gauge. And I’m definitely no expert.

    Oh, I love this song, but I’m already sick of it! Anyway, it’s a great new. I think she should release “Rehab” as a single too.

  62. everything-iam September 12, 2008

    Enough is a ENOUGH and six singles is the absolute limit. She has a hell of a lot to prove in the coming years because we know she’s not a good vocalist, her live performances suck, and she doesn’t write her own records. So unless she has the money to pay Timb, Ne-Yo, The Dream, Justin again (which I highly doubt since she probably is broke), she needs to start getting some vocal lessons, or learn a f*****’ trade because new people who look better than her, sound better than her, and perform better than her are gonna come out and take her out of the ‘top spot’. Not to mention the greats (i.e. Britney, Bee, and Christina) are coming back too and there is NO stopping those ladies. Robyn better put down the magazines and food, leave Chris’ movie shoot and get on her grind if she wants to keep her little bit of relevance.

    its a shame that all of you people hate on her.
    its quite pathetic. when u know the girl has loads of talent. or else she wouldnt be on top of the world right now

    shes currently working on her 4th album.
    im glad she had so many singles. every song in GGGB was a potential success. no other album that i know of has done that, been so crafty and likeable.
    rihanna haters, kick rocks. the girl is amazing; live and on the radio.
