Rihanna’s ‘Rude Boy’ Hits #1

Published: Wednesday 17th Mar 2010 by Sam

Pop starlet Rihanna has much cause for celebration today; her new single ‘Rude Boy’ has hit the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 – her label have announced. The song becomes the 22 year old’s 5th solo #1 on the chart, and her 6th overall (when including her feature on T.I.’s ‘Live Your Life’). What’s more, Rihanna becomes the female artist with the most #1’s on the chart since 2000 (S.O.S., Umbrella, Disturbia, Take A Bow, Live Your Life, Rude Boy).

——————————————

Congratulations are no doubt in order for Ms. Fenty. Despite her ‘Rated R’ album not being anything to scream about (as its lacklustre sales show), ‘Rude Boy’ was undoubtedly the LP’s one saving grace, hence the #1 is much deserved.

That said, the way this Bajan model is stacking up these #1’s is somewhat frightening. Who would have ever thought we’d enter an age where models posing as singers/performers regularly sit on top of the charts? In any case, now’s not the time to rain on anyone’s parade. It indeed appears ‘that Rihanna reign just won’t let up’……..yet (see: Jennifer Lopez’s career).

    Yay rhi rhi take it take it, c** here rude boy boy is you big enough!

  2. Heir March 17, 2010

    My friends will tell u, i called this months ago when the labum first dropped. I said, and i quote” if she releases Rude Boy as a single, it will go to number 1″, i also said that if she knew any better, she would release Rude Boy as a single since this is what people are used to hearing from her! I know a hit when i hear it!

  3. Sibel March 17, 2010

    Starlet?? EXCUSE ME!!! lol I’m not her fan but she definitely ain’t a starlet but a star 😉

  4. Lee March 17, 2010

    Before you diss Rihanna as you always do….’Run this town’ wasn’t a #1 in America, it was infact her collab with T.I. (live your life) that brings her total to 6. Before you bring the usual negativity to the article, maybe make sure the article is correct?

  5. y2kmalone March 17, 2010

    stay mad haters she’s #1 lol

  6. Kenken March 17, 2010

    Congrats Rihanna! I am not a big Rihanna fan but Congrats anyway no need to hate only if IDJ came out with this a little earlier this album would have been more successful

  7. wow March 17, 2010

    Took so much time to write this bs, you did not even check the facts, Run this town never went to #1, Billboard is talking about Live ya Life with TI

    TGJ is such a bunch of f***** haters, and that J Lo career s***, where is her 6 number ones, of thats right she doesnt have any, so stfu!

    Congrats Rihanna , your fans love and will always support you, not with trending topics and spreading bs and hate about other artists, but by buying your music, magazine covers, tuning into award shows when you perform, voting for you on whatever countdown or poll there is etc

    Haters will continue to hate, but it gives us even more motivation to support you #Rihannanavy

  8. Kingnoah3000 March 17, 2010

    congrats!

  9. DOB March 17, 2010

    Congrats RiRi. The lyrical content of this song is questionable, but I can’t deny it’s a great song with a hot video. And the timing is perfect with the weather getting warmer in the states.

  10. faiii March 17, 2010

    Rated R is an amazing album, and sales are good. It reaaly might be the best pop album this decade.

  11. SHAYLAA March 17, 2010

    Good for Rihanna 🙂 Sam i love how you always say about Rihanna, yet you BUM ciara yet she can’t sing. Who ever you interview you lick bum, if you interviewed Rihanna, you’d be nothing but nice to her always.

  12. Lee March 17, 2010

    Also you going to credit Rihanna Daily for that small part you copied/pasted. I used to love this blog but I really find it boring how you just rip into Rihanna *everytime*.

  13. Kyus93 March 17, 2010

    *sighs* Yet again, hating on Rihanna. The album’s sales have not been lackluster, it’s STILL selling faster than GGGB which (need I remind you) sold almost 8m WW. RiRi CAN sing, you are talking out of your ass. As usual. Sugababes, RiRi, PCD… you’re always hating on my favs (apart from Alexandra). What’s with you?

  14. lmao March 17, 2010

    WHERE THEY AT WHERE THEY AT WHERE THEY ATTTTTTT???
    LMAAAAAAAAOO, this f****** reign just wont let up

  15. Ms. CLaY March 17, 2010

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

    DDDDEEEEEEAAAAAAAADDDDDDDDD!!! Sam you are mess! That was hilarious!

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

    Anyways, I’m happy for Rihanna! This is no surprise, since this song suits her sooooo well! She should have done more songs like this and I would guess that they would go this route for her next album! I really love this song, although, I think I liked the song “Hard” and the video alot more, this song is definitely #1 material. Congratulations Rihanna!

  16. Kyus93 March 17, 2010

    & like the person said above, Run This Town went to #2, LIVE YOUR LIFE was the collabo that Billboard are talking about. Yet again, as with The Sugababes, you haven’t got your facts right or done the research

  17. f thatspoiledjuice March 17, 2010

    @ WOW STANDING OVATION FOR U couldnt have said it better…..haters will hate wats new???????? we continue to love and support rih to make sure she is neverrrrrr a flop and always to the top….

    Congratulations Robyn Rihanna Fenty

  18. newsflash haters March 17, 2010

    Good for rihanna 🙂 Rude boy is a hot jam.

  19. Ghetto Fab March 17, 2010

    Sam, really you could stop your blatant hate on the girl. She earned those 6 number one hits! In the little time this Bajan girl has been out she has managed to capture audiences like no other. Its no shocker that the song went to number one. It will go on to be the Spring/Summer hit for 2010. She is not a damn model so shut up Sam! If you would open up your ears the girl can actually sing. Now she may not be the best singer, or may not be your cup of tea. But the girl CAN SING! Not everyone has to be screaming like Beyonce or j-Hudson to “sing well.” Get over yourself dude!

    Congrats RihRih! CARIBBEAN to di wooooooooooooorld!!!! That Rihanna reign just won’t let up!!

  20. fg March 17, 2010

    NOW IF ONLY SHE CAN GET A NUMBER 1 ALBUM SHDM THE STANS ONLY BUY SINGLES

  21. fg March 17, 2010

    NOT EVERYONE SOUND LIKE BILLY GOAT SO CONGRAT RIHERO

  22. Music Lover March 17, 2010

    There are MUCH better songs on that album but congrats Rhi

  23. y2kmalone March 17, 2010

    Rihanna replaces labelmate Taio Cruz atop the Billboard Hot 100, set to be released tomorrow (Thursday, March 18), as her latest single “Rude Boy” jumps 4-1.

    “Rude” is Rihanna’s sixth Hot 100 No. 1 and fifth as a lead artist. Her most recent chart-topper had been as a featured vocalist on T.I.’s “Live Your Life” in 2008. Her other leaders are “SOS” (2006, three weeks), “Umbrella,” featuring Jay-Z (2007, seven weeks), “Take A Bow” (2008, 1 week) and “Disturbia” (2008, two weeks)

    Since debuting on the scene in June 2005 with the No. 2-peaking “Pon De Replay,” Rihanna has posted more Hot 100 No. 1 than any other artist. Next in line is Justin Timberlake who’s scored five chart-toppers during this span.

    With “Rude Boy” knocking Cruz’s “Break Your Heart” (1-3) out of the top slot, the Island Def Jam Music Group (IDJMG) label posts back-to-back Hot 100 No. 1s for the first time since “Gold Digger” by Kanye West featuring Jamie Foxx replaced Mariah Carey’s “We Belong Together” at the head of the chart dated Sept. 17, 2005. “Heart” continues to top the Digital Songs chart, moving 202,000 downloads, according to Nielsen SoundScan (down 26%).

  24. hopeful March 17, 2010

    CONGRATULATIONS RIHANNA, NICE JOB, WELL DONE

  25. ADE March 17, 2010

    Congrats! Can’t knock this girl’s hustle – and just because Rated R sales haven’t been great, doesn’t mean the album isn’t…its actually a really good album – but thats my opinion!

  26. jackie March 17, 2010

    i’m definitely not a fan of rihanna but this song rocks my world . bravo!

  27. B@tch Please March 17, 2010

    You’re a bit of c***. Calm the f*** down, let the girl have her moment.

  29. Adam March 17, 2010

    Since when was Rihanna a model? If that worked, why the f*** hasn’t Cassie had a number one?

  30. Tamz March 17, 2010

    OMG…just as I expected. Obviously u refuse to take ur head from up ur ass.Rihanna may not be a vocal powerhouse, but she is definitely talented and she obviously couldn’t be relying on luck all these years. What’s the sense congratulating her for her success then in the same breath continue to show ur disdain for this particular artiste…GET OVER IT ALREADY!!!!

  31. rudeboy! March 17, 2010

  40. Curtis March 17, 2010

    I’ve learned MONTHS ago that haters don’t matter but today it just solidifies…

    Jennifer Lopez is a flop but… trust same thing will not happen to Rihanna, hit after hit after hit… 4 albums deep into her career…

    J.Lo had 3 successful albums then started flopping immedietly so pleasee, take it hoome! J.Lo still has acting atleast.

  42. cold case love March 17, 2010

    Sam i knew you would throw shade. Just can’t go ONE positive post about Rihanna. Not one.
    Congratulations are in order for Rihanna, for completely turning the Rated R era/around. People wrote this album as a flop the first week, and now its still selling and Rude Boy will only make sales better. The hate for Rihanna is unwarranted, and im glad 90% of the blogworld is spreading positivity her way. She deserves it for ONCE!!!!!!!!!!!!

  43. RIHANNA QUEEN March 17, 2010

  45. KingMo March 17, 2010

    That last paragraph is my sentiments exactly. lol.

  46. Anthony March 17, 2010

    shut up sam….
    sales don’t determine how good an album is.
    AND YOU of all ppl should know that..

    And it’s just like the 80’s.
    Singers who weren’t the best vocalists dominated the
    charts then too… So it’s no difference.

    Just give her props and leave the side comments to yourself.

  47. OSO_Deluxe Edition March 17, 2010

    Congrats to RiRi…but to be honest I am a Beyonce stan which is sad that that a girl with a little experience scored more number ones….but anw congrats
    Love me some RiRi….btw plz (oh wait till I scroll up to see ur name…) sam stop repeating and hating lighten up,Bajan model this and Bajan model that she can kind of sing…
    atleast I enjoy it

    btw Beyonce is gonna getcha SOOON so don’t u let get into ur head lol

    Music 4 ever!

  48. Puppy Love March 17, 2010

    That said, the way this Bajan model is stacking up these #1’s is somewhat frightening. Who would have ever thought we’d enter an age where models posing as singers/performers regularly sit on top of the charts? In any case, now’s not the time to rain on anyone’s parade.

    BTW Rated R is a gd album…different and beautiful
    and sales have nothing to do with how good an album is…
    her best album to date….

  50. March 17, 2010

    “Despite her ‘Rated R’ album not being anything to scream about (as its lacklustre sales show), ”

    I didn’t realize that sales (or lack thereof) reflected quality (or lack thereof).
    Thanks for clearing that up.

    Jackass.

  51. STAY MAD! March 17, 2010

    STAY MAD SAM!

    Your faves are flopping. You hate Rihanna but you had her in your banner for about 3 years.

    STAY MAD!

  52. FAME MONSTER March 17, 2010

    I AM RIHANNA FAN BUT I NEVER LET A NUMBER ONE EXCITE ME THIS MUCH BECAUSE I KNOW THIS WHOLE THING IS ONE BIG GAME LOOK AT BRANDY,J.LO,AND MANY OTHERS ALL IT WOULD TAKE TO TOP HER IS FOR BEYONCE,GAGA,OR JUSTIN T.TO GET WHAT 2 OR 3 MORE NUMBER SINGLES AND IT’S OVER NOW MARIAH FAN CAN BRAG 18 NUMBER ONES STOP PLAYING YOUSELF GETTING HYPED ABOUT LOW ASS NUMBER

  53. FAME MONSTER March 17, 2010

    I’VE DID SOME RESEARCH AND ALL IT WOULD TAKE FOR HER TO LOSE THAT TITLE IS FOR TELEPHONE TO GO TO NUMBER AND THAT TITLE WILL BELONG TO THE QUEEN BEYONCE

  54. Tha Phoenix March 17, 2010

    Yes Rated R is a good album and I called Rude Boy as a #1 hit as soon as I heard it back in November.

    I’m a B stan but no shade here. Well done to her.

    I will agree with your last comment about JLo, though I love Ms lopez (she can perform her a*** off but not sing and that didn’t wash for long).

  55. Tha Phoenix March 17, 2010

    And this competition her and Queen B have for no of #1s is making music more exciting than it has been in a while. Although B will catch up in a couple of weeks with Telephone – this is similar to the Brit/Christina battle in the early noughties…

    it makes life more interesting…

  56. NICKY March 17, 2010

    THAT RIHANNA REIGN JUST WONT LET UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    RATED R’S SALES GOING UP UP UP UP

    Almost at 2 million …..SELLING CONSISTENTLY EVERYWHERE!!!!!!!!

    SORRY SAM!!!! NICE TRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! RIHANNA RELEASING A MONSTER DANCE ALBUM AT THE END OF THE YEAR = MORE NUMBER 1’S AND TOP 10’s and more sales!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RIHANNA AND JLO……RIHANNA HAS GREAT MUSIC, UNIQUE VOICE, BEAUTY , FASHION, ETC

    SHE HAS IT ALL

  57. LadyLove March 17, 2010

    I’m assuming Rihanna Daily keeps tabs on TGJ and then sends all the little minions over here to post the same s*** in every rihanna post

    “blah blah haters. blah blah Trent and Sam are f***. blah blah”

    The majority of all are living vicariously through Rihanna. You take any negative thing about her and personalize it. Yall act as if Trent and Sam are talking about you personally or your families. You know every stat and mundane detail about her career and life yet non of yall are entertainment or music writers/critics. I’m concerned. I’m convinced most of yall are under the age of 18!

    I gotta co-sign everything the Fame Mosnter said. It’s all a game! One day your on top and the next day you are on dancing with the stars or kicking it in some VH1 reality show.

  58. Really March 17, 2010

    @ FAME MONSTER

    Telephone won’t go #1. Even if it does, she will still share the title with Beyawnce.

  59. Puppy Love March 17, 2010

    @LadyLove

    Agreed.

  60. HaYYYYYY March 17, 2010

    definatly luv the song
    was one of my faves from the album
    n im glad it went #1
    but i still dont understand the video
    i thot it was so stupid n boring
    she coda done a lot betta with tht one like she did on RR and Hard

  61. YouPutTheLimeInTheCoconut March 17, 2010

    Can’t hate, congrats to her. Rude Boy is definitely starting to grow on me anyway, so..

  62. Blasian March 17, 2010

    Rihanna stans wanna bring Beyonce into it lol. You already know that this is going to change don’t you??? lol

  63. Lalailadida March 17, 2010

    Why is this site so biased against Rihanna? It’s kinda sad that you can’t even give her props fully and have to put in negative leanings….Just give it up to the girl already. And this IS her 6th #1 Hot 100 single. I doubt T.I. could have made “Live Your Life” #1 without Ms. Fenty on the record. She MADE that record what it is. Go Rihanna, keep the haters hating because you always come out on top.

  64. X,Y,”and Z” March 17, 2010

  66. Lalailadida March 17, 2010

    @Tha Phoenix: I seriously doubt “Telephone” will ever get to #1…It’s not as strong as Bad Romance and that song only reached #2 on the Hot 100 (I thought it would be #1 too!). Also the song has been out for over two months now and it has still only peaked at #9 (this week) and with the buzz fot r the video already waning then the single will fall back. I see “Telephone” as peaking at MAYBE #5…#4 if you wanna really push it. Either way, all these women are RULING it.

    Fall the f&uck back, you are such a damn hater.

    Its ok though, Rihanna is the #1 female on top of the charts this millennium. Your constant hating means nothing. You can go back to stanning for your flop ass Kelly Rowland and that criminal woman beater Chris Brown now. Rihanna don’t need you

    EVERYONE IS IN LOVE WITH ROCKSTAR 101 LIKE THEY ARE WITH RUDE BOY

    ROCKSTAR WILL BE THE SUMMER ANTHEM AND # 1 HIT , WITH A GREAT REMIX WITH A RAPPER.

    PHOTOGRAPHS WITH WILLIAM , ANOTHER SURE WORLD HIT. BLACKEYEPEAS ARE HOT AND WILLIAM WILL ENSURE ITS SUCCESS.

    FIREBOMB , A BEAUTIFUL BALLAD THAT THE CRITICS AND FANS ALIKE ARE IN LOVE WITH.

    SORRY SAM, RIHANNA HAS AT LEAST 3 MORE SONGS THAT WILL BE SINGLES AND HITS. RUDE BOY IS BRINGING THE FIRE, SO HATERS FALL THE F** BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  71. KEEPINGITREAL March 17, 2010

    Finally a song peeps are feeling!!. All this dark s*** no one is interested RiRi! Do what you do best and thats make people dance and have a good time with radio friendly pop tracks. All this edgey crap ain’t working for you man. You wonder why the record company didn’t release this in the first place, they would have got a better response with the album. Though I’m sure they are gonna follow it up with a repacked repacked repacked special really special exclusive while stocks last album. Rhianna is a track by track artist, she will always be good as her last track. That’s just how it goes for her. Now learn from this DEFJAM/MERCURY RECORDS!

  72. B@tch Please March 17, 2010

    F*** Beyonce and GAGA its Rihanna day she has 6 number 1’s not them. GOOD DAY

  73. rightround(U.S.A pride!) March 17, 2010

    can’t even hate… CONGRATS. i love that song!

  74. X,Y,”and Z” March 17, 2010

    I just read that Ludacris has the #1 Cd, according to Billboard’s top 200 Album Chart; here’s the part I find REALLY interesting: “HIS FIRST WEEK’S SALES WAS 137K” ………?!?!? Wow, this recession is-no-joke! People ain’t buying CD’s, what else is there to say: Welcome to the “new-normal”?!?!?!

    Now, if “Luda” – who has NO-criminal record, and is, ‘as-far-away’ from controversy, ‘as-you-can-get’ – is ONLY-doing 137K for HIS FIRST week – just WOW!

    But you know what? NOW that we are ALL living in this ‘new-normal’, it’ll take “real-talent” to be relevant: NO B******* ALLOWED! Real Showmanship; Real singing;Real dancing and a “real knowledge of the stage!” ….Maybe it’s a blessing in disguise; maybe if you want to be entertained – now, you’ll have to go to a concert and watch someone entertain, perform and exhibit some “semblance of showmanship!” …I can think of one “artist” who “knows-well”: SHOWMANSHIP and is well-known for HIS command-of-the-stage! ….And I can think of another, who relies on the lure-of: “p****-for-sale, and “THAT” – even-as-SHE, has to explain-away those ever-present H***** rumors; reoccurring sore on her lip not-withstanding, she claims it’s a scar…

    I JUST had an Epiphany: if some “venturing and entrepreneurial pharmacist”, or pharmacist assistant, would NOW-make-public Rihanna’s Valtrex prescription, given THIS song, and it’s “overtly carnal-callings”, it’ll make for, not-only, sensational headlines, but also a HUGE pay-day….H-U-G-E!

  77. cocoa lux March 17, 2010

    I never comment here but I notice how this blog throws immense shade as if you haven’t proven your point already and what’s changed… nothing. She still slearly has fans and she’s nailed another number one record. It is what it is. I bet your jaw dropped when you found out. Maybe because it brings more hits that’s why.
    Rated R is solid to a lot of people even if you don’t like it( and it’s your pereogative to not like it)
    Anyways.. you’d be in the minority for not humming to this song. Congrats to her.

    congrats Rihanna i already knew rudeboy would be #1 now if her next album has more songs like that its gonna be another success for her can anyone say GGGB round 2?

  80. Aunt Jackie March 17, 2010

    Figured it would go number one. It’s a decent enough song.

    Telephone by Beyonce & Gaga is probably going to go number one, too.

  81. CONVERSATION CHAMBER March 17, 2010

    Meh. I couldn’t even hum a few bars of that song to win a million dollars…or to save my life.

    Whatever.

  87. MrDardza March 17, 2010

    i hate the fact tht whoeva posted ths article clearly doesn’t appreciate rihanna’s talent. how can u say she’s jus a model posing as a singer?! bloggers are so screwd at times. rihanna is no doubt one of the most gifted artistes… get used to it!!! congrats RiRi thre’s no stoppin u.

  88. MrDardza March 17, 2010

    stop hatin on this gal coz sh’s so blessed. yeh the fact tht she’s olso a model jus goes on to show tht she’s multi-talented. if the whole world can c tht then wat the f*** is yo problem. u makin me hate this blog site!!!

  89. Aunt Jackie March 17, 2010

    I’m kind of curious about what she’ll release next. Obviously people don’t like sad, so I’m assuming it won’t be cold-case love, which is unfortunate, because it’s one of the best songs I’ve heard from her album.

    Maybe she’ll release Te Amo, which was another good one.

    Kills me how people celebrate #1’s. Doesn’t really mean much anymore when someone like Ke$ha can go number 1. Number 1’s don’t equal talent, but talent can get you number 1’s.

  90. RATED x March 17, 2010

    AHAHAHAHAHA @ Sam…
    the stans keep bragging about how Rihanna has the most number 1 hits as a solo artist..Mmm, hate to bust yall bubble,actually country singer George Strait has the most number 1 hits world wide, as a single artist..rihanna still cant touch Mariah Careys 18 number 1 hits, or Madonna 13 number 1 hit. Rihanna only got 6 number 1 hits, what the hell u stans are bitching bout?
    I’s soory she still not in the same league as JLO. Jlo may not be a singer, but shes a decent entertainer.
    good for her that Rude boy is number 1…she needs a break from them sorry ass numbers shes being bringing lately.
    Mmmm, did somebody actually compared rihanna to alicia keys, alicia keys voice may get on my last nerve(granted shes a great vocalist), but I’m sorry rihannna cannot touch alicia keys talent, or album sells.

  91. RATED x March 17, 2010

    its not that having a number 1 hit does automatically mean u the s***. now in days anybody with a decent or s***** voice(cough rihanna, cough keisha watava her name is), can have a number 1 hit..its how many number 1 hits u have not how many top 10 u have.how many number 1 u have..I mean if u have 18, 13 number 1 hits, obviously ur ass is doing something right.

  92. newsflash haters March 17, 2010

    As usual the haters are out in full force. FIrst they were saying she still can’t get a #1 where is her number 1 if rated r is so epic and stuff. Now that she has done it, now its something else. Typical Hater M.O if they can’t congratulate, they just hate. Hate on haters, because you can’t stop rihanna’s progress.

  93. Symone March 17, 2010

    LOL…….I just find it funny that Rihanna Stans that celebrate her song as #1 in one country are the same people that say that singles don’t count when it comes to other artists.I will say that I have never heard this song nor have I heard anything from her latest cd.

  94. Jermaine March 17, 2010

    BRING ON THE HATERS… NOW WHAT! RIHANNA JUST SH*T’D ON ALL YA’LL! LOL…. AND SAM IS STILL A HATER… GROW UP! IF YOU DON’T LIKE HER… DON’T POST ABOUT HER! SIMPLE ASS THAT… BUT YOU STILL WILL BECAUSE U SECRETLY DRESS UP LIKE RIHANNA AND SING HER SONGS INFRONT OF YOUR MIRROR.LOL

    RIHANNA U KEEP STACKING THESE’S HITS AND THIS PAPER BABY. THESE HATERS JUST KEEP U IN THE HEADLINES… REMEMBER FOR ANY STAR, “ALL NEWS, IS GOOD NEWS”. JUST FREE PUBLICITY

  95. newsflash haters March 17, 2010

    people are always talking about rihanna’s voice is this that or the other. Since when do people need a voice like Mahalia Jackson to sing pop. Rihanna is a pop artist, and her voice works for the songs she sings. And it obviously is working well for her, racking up 6 #1’s in five years. So continue to do you Ri Ri and never mind the haters.

  96. X,Y,”and Z” March 17, 2010

    @YouPutTheLimeInTheCoconut — They’re ALL “my-favorites” ; – P

    …But you’ll have to THEN ask yourselves – what CAN’T “our-RiRi” do?
    …Singer,Dancer,Fashonista-extraordinary; Matriarch of her, self-made, Multi-Million dollar empire; …A Classical-Beauty – whose face has graced many fashion-media – and has set numerous trends; subject-of many an Urban Myth, and “worth-while fodder” for the gossip/rumor mill….who-else but Rihanna, I ask? ….Who else?

    is that all the stans can do is call people HATER?..I mean damn if Rihann is such a bad bish or she the greatest, let her numbers speak for themselves, let her number 1 hit albums speak for themselves, let her fantastic live perfomances speak for themselves. last but not least let her 500k first week sale speak for themselves..instead being on a blog that u know is not rihanna’s number 1 fan every single damn day, calling people all types of name because they dont or wont kiss rihannas ass. ..
    if shes shutting down the so call haters, why yall stans feel the need to respond to the HATERS?
    I mean can somebody be a fan of rihanna, without all the ass kissing. can somebody be a regular fan of rihanna, without being subjected to name callings, because they dont agree that her album did well?
    I mean damn, even the fans cant enjoy her success cause the damn stans so damn annoying.

    @Aries_Blu — Woo; now THAT’S a scary picture: Rihanna at 60 – onstage singing “Rude Boy”! By then, you’ve gotta-think the H***** and Syphilis would have done “shot-up-to” her brain and relieved her – of ‘what-little’ sense she had left! …By then, Matt K is in the nut-house for the criminally insane: he-done-got-caught, plotting to kill that annoying b**** WITHOUT getting caught;but she got to him first: she drove HIM crazy!

    …By then: the cottage-cheese Cellulite, on the back of those thighs, looks like frozen corn porridge!

    @Ben — NOT exactly an “original recipe”, now is it?

    From what I understand, Billboard takes into consideration, radio-play ALONG-WITH actual sales, in this case, d/l’ed sales; …and so the dumbing-down of Western Civilization continues unabated! …Curious, it’s #1 on Billboard, but NOT yet Platinum nor Gold….

    …I hope when she goes to Australia and sings “Rude-Boy” she’ll be-respecting-of-HER audience by wearing leggings: http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/entertainment/exposed-rihannas-cellulite-nightmare/story-e6frewyr-1225799158107

    My guess is “Disturbia” is your fav, XYZ, since Chris Brown wrote it…?

    @You……..Coconut

    I know this question wasn’t towards me but I don’t like Rihanna and my fave song is “HARD”……I love that song! Although I’m a Chris Brown fan, “Disturbia” was probably my list favorite of her biggest hits.

  117. RihYAWNa is a Joke March 17, 2010

    The only person who can pull that wig off Beyonce’s lace-fronted Head is the Queen Bey herself- Stay Mad

    Just because they tie at having the most Top 10s & #1s as a lead act doesnt put rihanna anywhere near Bey’s Level, Bey is actually galaxies Ahead on a whole nother Planet. If RihYAWNNA sounds like a dying goat, 50 million sold later, she still sounds like a dying goat.

    Congrats doesnt go out to Rihanna, It goes to her team of writers & producers, They deserve the real props for working wonders for her very limited voice.

    Call me when RihYAWNna gets a #1 Album, Shes had more opportunity to accomplish this than Bey, shes put out more albums than bey, already redying Album #5 & has NO #1 albums?, Why is that… Because shes a mere singles artist. Still trying to get that #1 Album huh rih?, Give it up Mah.

    Call me… when Rih sells 30 Million worldwide(solo), When an album of hers sells more than just 4 million with out re-releasing, gets 9 #1 Singles, Pulls off a real worldwide tour selling out Stadiums, Wins 16(deserved) Grammys, sells over 100 Million records, has the longest cumulative run at #1, Actually learns how to sing & dance & actually become a real talented Musician instead of just a studio voice, Becomes apart of the biggest female group ever, Becomes (RIAA)Artist of the Decade, & achieves Icon Status. Then & only then can we Talk…

    Nice try though

    *P.S The only reason Rude Boy went #1 is because its catchy, But its no where near as catchy as Beyonce’s Song SAY MY NAME- The catchiest song ever made, Perfect vocals, beat, rhythm, Lyrics- It never gets old. Lets see how well PPL remember RihYAWNa’s music 10 Years later…* Rihanna is just a Joke to real Musicians like Alicia, Beyonce, & Mariah.

    LONG LIVE THE QUEEN BEY, *THAT BEYNCE REIGN JUST WONT LET UP* Just wait for Album #IV…

    LMFAO I LOOOOOOOVE how the Chris Brown posts, all the CB stans were damn near begging for people to stop hating and how everyone is human, and how it’s not fair.

    Fast forward to the Rihanna post, these same people are calling her all types of names, and telling people that everyone can hate if they want to.

    OMG, this blog, just like every other urban blog is plagued by people who are seriously blinded by their devotion for their favorite artists and at the same time DENY it. Anyone with half a brain can spot a Chris Brown stan from a mile away, no matter how they claim to be “fans” and not “stans.”

    This is the raw definition of being a hater. You are clearly mad because Rihanna is still successful and Chris is literally BEGGING for support. These are the facts boys and girls. Rihanna is number 1. Why are these people trying everything to discredit that?

    I’m done…half of you CB stans are closeted Rihanna fans anyways. Get over it.

    …@Reyawna is a joke – You should heard the way they were ‘going-in’ on Beyonce’s husband; calling him ‘all-outta-his-name’: X-Crack Cocaine dealer who sold dope to pregnant women and grade school kids; “Criminal” – after all, he does have an assault record, no? And they just CAN’T stop talking bout that “internet-available” video of Jay Z assaulting that defenseless Black South African Girl!

I’m sure you look like a chewed up doggy biscuit in real life, that’s why you feel the need to stay on the net 24/7 bashing Rihanna and living in Chris Brown’s asshole. It’s really not that serious.

    GET.OVER.IT.

    Don’t even make me bring up the fact that Chris Brown doesn’t even have half the number of number 1 singles that Rihanna does. LMAO.

    @Gucci — Wipe the wax outta-your-ears, and wash-the-crust, from your eyes! You’ll NEVER find ME asking Ri-Stands ANYTHING; ‘let-alone’: BEGGING?!?!? – HA!

    Let me reiterate, if you’ve bothered to scroll-up, you’d have saw what I had already written: Ludacris sold 170K this, his first week, and he’s #1 on Billboard’s top 100 (or was it top 200); in any case, that’s tells me that ain’t no-one buying CD’s – at least, not as they once were! So before the release of “Graffiti” Chris Brown was asking HIS-fans for support and they bought over 100K of “Graffiti”, which made HIM – the #1 on Billboard’s R&B and #3 on Digital Albums and #7 for Billboard’s Top 100. If he want’s to talk to his fans, either to come-out to HIS concerts, OR to have ’em call-into the radio stations to play his music, isn’t it between CB and HIS fans?

    Sam, wrote this-post, regarding THIS Rihanna song; THEN asked-for-comment; if this were Rihanna – asking HER fans/stans/supporters to buy CoverGirl or whatever she’d endorsed ‘AT-ONE-TIME’ – that’d have been between THEM; I’m NO Ri-fan, so I’d NOT care!
    …Holding true-to-form: the mindless, meandering, pedestrian chatterbox that YOU are, refuses to see any logic or reason: your ‘one-preoccupying-concern’: the sound of your very-own voice, and the ‘cavernous-recesses’ that joins your logic-and-reasoning! …But you’re a Rihanna fan/supporter/stan, now aren’t you, should I have expected better?

    And isn’t it your love-of/for Rihanna, who, as FACT has it: DOES HAVE H*****; IS NOW BEING SUED FOR A MEASLY $30K, by her personal trainer, who only tried to help Rihanna, rid her, of that hideous cottage-cheese found on HER thighs; who DID NOT – buy a $10 million mansion in California; who smashed bottles upside HER brother’s head; who, at the end of ’08, had ONLY $20K in HER bank account – after garnering award-after-award, title-after-title and accolade-after-accolade; isn’t it, that SAID love, that is now blinding YOU to the truth? …Rihanna is a ‘Diseased’, High School Drop-Out, who has-and-will-continue to use any-and-everyone to achieve her objective – Terminally ill young girls/Domestic violence victims included! …None remain safe!!!

So if retailers bought ’em and they’ve yet to sell ’em: retail sales; then they MUST be sitting up on the shelves, awaiting some new-and-novel-way for RiRi to “sell-p****”, no? ….Never you mind the H***** sore, that healed itself into that-scar, seen-on the right hand side of her top lip; ain’t nothin’ a little Valtrex didn’t help-along!

  126. vegasgirl March 18, 2010

    The only thing I find interesting is that Rihanna somehow replaced her label mates number 1 from last week according to Y2K Malone. I haven’t trusted Billboard’s stats since Clay Aiken released his first album because everything that is tallied up by them seems to be able to be affected by label $$$ and connections.

    Def Jam saw the song was catching on and decided to throw all their resources dedicated to Rihanna at it to get it to number 1 ( probably sacrificing Mr.Cruz’s spot) so that she would have a #1 hit song off of Rated R. Now they can package her album saying that her highly anticipated and well recieved album Rated R has a #1 song and hopefully this will spawn more hits and increase her sales.

    The more I look at some of this I see politics and power being thrown around to create stars. Interscope did it with GaGa ( she got alot of radio airplay before her album even went gold), in fact Interscope got in trouble a few years back for payola ( paying radio stations to play their artists). Both ladies are under Universal Music Group so expect to hear more of their songs played continiously because UMG has alot of $$ to throw . UMG has done a tremendous job of creating a brand of their superstars

  127. vegasgirl March 18, 2010

    Ohh and she should have released this single WAY earlier!!!

  128. Gucci March 18, 2010

    XYZ I LOOOOOOVE how you supposedly know all about Rihanna’s life, who is suing her and all. you know how many copies her album sold per week. You know everything about her. YOU ARE SUCH A CLOSETED RIHANNA FAN.

    The logic is that you use ANYTHING to justify Chris Brown’s shortcomings and then you amplify anything Rihanna related. LOL, Anything with both hemispheres of their brain can tell you are pathetic. I’m done with you. Keep hating while Rihanna’s number one spot remainS unchanged.

    AND GO FLUSH ALL THAT S*** YOU KEEP TALKING…..& MAKE SURE YOU FLUSH IT DOWN THE SAME TOILET AS CHRIS BROWN’S CAREER.

    @Ben – couldn’t agree with you more. People seem to love the ‘lighter’ Rih more, always said Rated R wouldn’t top GGGB cause, like Brit, Rih isn’t an artist people like to see wiht a dark side. That’s why Brit cleverly never does anything darker than, say, Toxic or Everytime. No your audience and your strenghts. Rude Boy is a sick song (& I’m saying this and I’m a B stan; I hate when people put all B stans as delusional – not all of us are )and, as I always said, is suited more to the GGGB LP…

    SIDENOTE: Apparently this is the last single of Rated R…. any truth to this?

  132. X March 18, 2010

    You know what? This song is catchy, but Rihanna couldn’t hit a note even if her life depended on it! She’s talentless! Even if she gets more #1’s than Mariah or The Beatles she will NEVER be a legend, cus legends has talent! Rihanna can’t sing, can’t write a song, in fact her entire career is based on her sexiness and her fashion sense and her producers’ skills. If Rihanna was auditioning for American Idol, Simon would’ve thrown her out at the 1st auditon! “This is probably the worst thing I’ve heard in my life” is probably what he would’ve said. The song itself is hot (thanks to the producers) but the lyrics scream s** (which is Rihanna’s career) and the video is awful! I guess talent is no longer needed to get a #1? Talent doesn’t sell anymore. It’s so sad that gimmicks sell and talent doesn’t!

    Oh, I just heard. What wonderful news! Congrats, Ri!

    “…Curious, it’s #1 on Billboard, but NOT yet Platinum nor Gold….”

    @XYandZ

    Rude Boy went gold last week, and it will likely be platinum by this week or by next week at the latest. I understand why you might have missed that though; you were probably busy writing a letter to your local radio station begging them to play CB’s songs.

    And why are you bringing up CB, anyway? He has nothing to do with Rude Boy being a #1 hit.

    @ vegasgirl

    I agree it’s all about payolla

    Rude boy is a cool song but nothing to go crazy over.

    Rihanna is a singles artist just like GaGa and Kesha.

    Rude boy is a good song I figured it woulb be number one cuz catchy music is what teens like right now

    Def jam paid for this song to hit the top spot

    It amazes me how y’all worship Rihanna for having 6 number ones but

    Mariah Carey has 18 number ones and y’all always dog her

    GaGa is gonna catch up with Rihanna they r gonna b the next Britney and Christina

    Y’all can dog Bey but she has been out 13yrs and she still getting hits winning Grammys and got number 1 albums when Rihanna does that starts making 85 million a yr like Bey does
    Holla at me

  135. bobs March 18, 2010

    XYZ & SYMONE – take your Prozac and deal with it. Rihanna has clobbered Chris Brown’s ASS straight into the ground.

    3 top ten singles in the US, including a #1.
    Russian Roulette was top 5 in every country it was released in.
    Fastest selling album ever, biggest opening ever around the world.
    Best reviewed album ever around the world.

    Sorry b******. Sorry SAM.

  136. tweetypiebabe1 March 18, 2010

    Are you serious she’s the first female artist since 2000 to have 6 number 1’s?! It’s funny how chart history and music sales work cause you would’ve thought plenty of others would’ve over run that by now.

  137. 12345 March 18, 2010

    lmao, its sad all the negativity you had inside you, so much negativity that you really want this young girl to fail, guess what, she wont, Jlo cant sing, thats not an opinion, it is a fact, you can say that Rihanna cant sing just because you dont like her voice but facts are that she has 3 octaves which it is pretty good, and she brings something new to the table, her voice is different and she has star quality, people like it and believe me, she will stay here for 5 more years to come.

    CONGRATULATIONS RIHANNA, HATERS ARE MAD, LET THEM BE MAD, YOU DESERVE THIS, RATED R ONE OF THE F****** BEST ALBUMS OF THE DECADE!!

    and LMAO to those that said this was f****** paid, right, when your favourites get a number 1# it isnt paid but when it is Rihanna or Mariah Carey you say that Def Jam payed for the airplay but if that was true, Mariah Carey wouldnt be having all these flop singles in a row, BE POSITIVE AND JUST RECOGNIZE THAT THIS IS A GAME, SOME LOSE SOMETIMES, SOME WIN SOMETIMES AND YOU DONT HAVE TO BE MAD JUST BECAUSE YOUR FAVOURITE FLOPS AND YOUR LESS FAVOURITE IS ON TOP!

  138. 12345 March 18, 2010

    @tha phoenix
    I dont know if this is the last single for Rated R, some say that it is some say it isnt, personally I would like her to launch a new single, maybe Photographs or Te Amo (this song is already blowing up on radios around the world), some say that Rockstar would be a good single but I dont think it would have that much success

  139. Fred March 18, 2010

    Gratz to her, I am actually a Chris Brown fan and Lady Gaga fan but I will say this. The video for Rude Boy was well done I liked it, the song not so much but its ok. I actually hated the Lady Gaga Telephone video though and the song telephone was trash and I am a gaga fan.

    Now I think Rihanna did wonderful on the video for Rude Boy, not great at dancing but she is a great STUDIO only singer, I also think she is pretty and Im a female saying this nobody can say she is ugly and be serious, really.

    Thing is I just dont want to see her try to sing this song live is all.

    @Reasonable Voice — http://riaa.org/goldandplatinumdata.php?resultpage=2&table=SEARCH_RESULTS&action=&title=&artist=Rihanna&format=&debutLP=&category=&s**=&releaseDate=&requestNo=&type=&level=&label=&company=&certificationDate=&awardDescription=&catalogNo=&aSex=&rec_id=&charField=&gold=&platinum=&multiPlat=&level2=&certDate=&album=&id=&after=&before=&startMonth=1&endMonth=1&startYear=1958&endYear=2010&sort=Artist&perPage=25 NOT YET it hasn’t, at least, not according to riaa.org!

    @Gucci – So I’m lying, is that it? …I’m lying ’bout Rihanna getting sued for $30K? I’m lying that she, or “Camp Rihanna” announced that SHE was buying a $10 million home? Did I lie bout her busting-bottles upside her brother’s head? …She bragged about as-such during a 2007 interview! I’m also lying ’bout Rihanna having to “defend herself” regarding those “H*****-rumors” too, ‘eh? I guess H***** sores don’t heal into scars, ‘eh?

    I guess I’m lying ’bout the-fact-that CoverGirl FIRED RIHANNA!! If she was ‘movin’ units’ – as-well-as you say she is – why NOT renew HER contract? If she was gaining in popularity, why NOT have HER as THEIR “Fresh New Face”?

    …It’s obvious that CoverGirl – as I suspected they’d do, as-they-did, when the case against Chris was active – “feared” that her “REAL statement” – AND THE TRUTH – would, “come to light”! If she took the witness-stand, she’d have to THEN ‘disavow-and-renounce’ all that was THEN believed to be the truth – as read, in that Cell Phone Warrant; but Alas, that possibility became VERY-REAL, as Chris, seemed to have wanted to, “take-it-to-trial”; she’d have to testify and CoverGirl wanted no-part of THAT ‘mess’. So they stopped running her commercials, and “distanced-themselves” from her; and ONLY began running ’em the day AFTER Chris ‘copped to the charge’ – Assault: the INTENT to do harm; NOT Battery: the ACTUAL-DOING bodily-harm! …So much for the biting, punching and hitting!

    I NEVER have to lie; why bother? …It’s so-much-fun, “unraveling-the-contrivances and spin”, “Camp-Rihanna” and TMZ’s Harvey Levin tries to sell to the ‘weary-and-unsuspecting!’

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT!

  141. Tha Phoenix March 18, 2010

    @12345

    I heard they were planning to release Photographs ( one of my faves of RR) if Rude Boy didn’t do well…

    Since it did, maybe they’d better save their money and spend it on her 6th Lp due out apparently in June…

    Best to go out on a high, I guess

    =)

  142. Tha Phoenix March 18, 2010

    sorry, I mean 5th lp…

  143. Tha Phoenix March 18, 2010

    @12345

    and while I like Te Amo – it seems more an album song, than a single…

  144. RATED x March 18, 2010

    why do people keep saying LADY GAGA is a single artist. she just came out in 2007, 2008 and her first album sold 8 million alone. no re realeased alone it sold 8 million..now does that sound like a single artist?
    its one thing if ur not a fan of rihanna or lady gaga, but dont go on making up s***, when u dont know what the fugg ur talking bout.

  145. florida_girl March 18, 2010

    @Vegas Girl…I agree with you 1000000% its real funny how she jumped all the way too #1 the way she did but oh well….

  146. Gucci March 18, 2010

    LMAO XYZ I never called you a liar, but I think it’s comical how you know every nook and crany of Rihanna’s personal life.

    You know you’re a fan.

    Spend less time smearing Rihanna and more time trying to get Chris Brown’s career off of life support.

  147. X,Y,”and Z” March 18, 2010

    @Gucci — But “revealing the truth” bout your “precious RiRi” IS getting, as YOU put it, “Chris Brown’s career OFF-life-support!” …And what-fun I’m having uncovering-the-“truth-of-the- matter”: Rihanna is a liar! ..It’s just THAT plain-and-simple! She was Aggressor and Instigator, on that Feb 8th/09 afternoon – in THAT car; then SHE-used-it to try and sell CD’s. She used Domestic Abuse Victims AND that Terminally ill girl as…”Props” but ONLY to garner sympathy and publicity – to make money!

    I can’t think of a “more-repulsive”, nor ‘reprehensible-act of wanton discourtesy, malfeasance or truculence!’ …YOU, should-be-ashamed of calling yourself a “Rih-stan!”
    …But RiRi “has NO-SHAME to her game,” now does she? …She’ll just move-on to the next one, and in the mean-time, she’ll just continue to SELL-P**** to anyone who has a dollar in their pocket; La-dies and Gentle-men: Robyn Rihanna Fenty!

  148. Gucci March 18, 2010

    LMAO XY AND Z, all that hatred but clearly public opinion is not on your side because she is still number 1. You lose.

    And Chris is not even a number. Keep calling those radio stations. 🙂

  149. X,Y,”and Z” March 18, 2010

    @Gucci –
    Not-long-from-now, L.A. Reid will no-longer be a part of Def Jam, in-large-part, due to his ,squandering of millions, spent on promoting “Rated R”! Now I ask you, upon his departure, from said Def Jam, WHAT will become of Rihanna? Do YOU think she can continue to “sell p****” and ONLY singles? Who’ll back such an “artist?” Jay Z won’t use ANY of his own funds to ‘back-her’ she has no-funds of HER-own; so what THEN becomes of Rihanna? ….I see…I see TBN on Sunday mornings, Rihanna giving testimonial ’bout the cut-throat-nature of the recording business…

    …See, Chis HAS talent, Rihanna does not, she’s a GIMMICK – nothing more than hype, ‘smoke-and-mirrors’ and PR…nothing more….

  150. Gucci March 18, 2010

    I guess her gimmick is working, and all of Chris’ “talent” as you call it amounts to nothing. How does that make you feel? L.A. Reid is not leaving, that was a rumor first of all. At least if your going to come for me, you need to check your sources.

    Once again, you lose and Rihanna wins. Keep calling those radio stations. I hope your pen didn’t run out of ink because you need to keep writing those letters too. Begging people to buy Chris Brown’s whack ass music.

  151. F*** YEAHHHHH! March 18, 2010

    RIHANNA YOU DESERVE THIS BABE AND WE WILL ALWAYS SUPPORT YOU!!!! HAHA AND AS SOON AS I FOUND OUT ABOUT THIS I KNEW HATERS WERE GONNA COME OUT AND TALK S*** HAHAHA SUCK IT UP GO REQUEST DUMBASS CHRIS BROWN’S S***** MUSIC BECAUSE HIS CAREER IS BASICALLLY FINISHED!!!

    YOU HATERS MAKE ME SIICK! JUST BECAUSE RIHANNA IS SUCCESSFUL YOU GONNA START HATING ? LOL GET THE F*** OUT OF HERE YOU P******! YOU SPENT MORE TIME HATING ON RIHANNA THEN ACTUALLY HELPING CHRIS BROWN AND HIS MISERABLE LIFE! KEEP HATING! WE STANS WILL BE HERE TO DEFEND RIHAAN AT ALL COST!!

    OH AND SAM GO SUCK A D*** YOU PIECE OF S***!

  152. xedos March 18, 2010

    of all beyonce #1’s only 2 she did not collaborate with someone. Irreplaceable and single ladies. Rihanna have 6 #1’s with one collaborate I wouldn’t call Umbrella because Jay Z on did a 2 lines more of an intro.
