It’s Official: Kanye West Trumps Nicki Minaj & Ne-Yo On The Album Charts

Published: Wednesday 1st Dec 2010 by Trent

It’s official: the only person who can beat Kanye West is Kanye West. The rapper’s latest effort, ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’, has captured the top spot on the charts this week, selling an impressive 518,775 copies. This means that the record has sold almost 70k more than his previous effort, ‘808 & Heartbreak’, which debuted with just over 450k in the same week two years prior.

In fact, West has managed to outperform even Nicki Minaj whose ‘Pink Friday’ debut LP sold 371,049 units. Minaj has no reason to worry, however, as her nemesis Lil Kim’s debut album, ‘Hardcore’, entered the charts at #11 back in November 1996.

Ne-Yo managed to land a position in the top 10 at #8 with ‘Libra Scale’ which sold over 117k copies. This accomplishment marks the highest entry for the album on any chart worldwide as it missed the top 10 in every territory including the UK where it debuted at #11 despite his ‘Beautiful Monster’ single peaking at #1.

There were several other interesting moves on this week’s tally. Rihanna’s ‘Loud’ LP experienced a 35% dip in sales, selling another 133,662 copies despite the Thanksgiving rush. On the other hand, Taylor Swift’s ‘Speak Now’ had a 71% upsurge, claiming the #3 spot with 255,991 records sold. Finally, Christina Aguilera’s ‘Burlesque’ soundtrack shifted 62, 514 units, entering the chart at #18.

    LMAO YASS NICKI!!! U ARE NOW BEHIND LAURYN HILL!!!! FOR THE BEST FIRST WEEK SALES OF ANY RAP CHICK!!! KANYE WAS GONNA OUTSELL HER, HE IS A HUGE ALBUM SELLER BUT GO NICKI GO GO GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. wow December 1, 2010

    wow @ nicki 2nd best selling female debut of the year & best debut for a female rap album in over a decade.

  3. ummm December 1, 2010

    I thought Nicki was gona sell a mill with all the hype that was around her LOL. But sadly her album is getting horrible reviews. Not classic material AT ALL and it doesn’t take a “hater” to realize that. Kim’s “HardCore” was the S*** and shits all over Minaj pink friday and ya’ll know that too. Nicki should be really disappointed because Kim’s album was over hyped and had people protesting against it due to the album covers. just sayin.. And I dont see pink friday going double platinum in 5yrs like HardCore.

    Kanye album was great. Exactly what I expected.

    And Neyo did better than I thought.

  4. Beyoncestan December 1, 2010

    @ Trent

    Harcore is a classic album & Hip Hop ( Male & Female) It revolutionized female Hip Hop

    No shade 2 Nicki however Pink Friday is not ending up on any Classic list! If anything she suffered from Erectile Album Dysfunction.

    The biggest album campaign of the year (15 singles on BB, 4 videos, tons of coverage ( TV & Blogs) several beefs etc & she only squeezed out 371

  5. Jeremy Danté December 1, 2010

  17. Diane December 1, 2010

    everybody knew that Kanye was not to be beat, so stop making the article appear like Nicki is a failure.

  18. TAMI December 1, 2010

    But I f*** with Right Thru Me that’s my s***. Lol bout the only song I like on her album!All that other bs..Bleeccccccch! And yes R****** is a flop because how people be hyping her s*** up and she don’t f****** sell!

  19. MissImpartial December 1, 2010

    Nicki outsold Lil Kim because Hip Hop has a bigger fanbase than it had before. There also more promo outlets nowadays i.e. internet, youtube, twitter and so on. Nicki has had also more collaborations and hype. I think best Female MC would be Missy Elliot as she is the most creative and has the best songs. My list would be Missy Elliot, Kim, McLite, Eve and then maybe Nicki. But can you believe that with her first album she had a more album sales than Rihanna who had five albums and 9 No 1 singles. Rihanna must think that the album No1 spot is allergic to her and sneezing her into the top five everytime she releases one. How else can you explain Kesha, Katy Perry having a number 1 albums.

  20. royalkev December 1, 2010

    I was hoping Kanye did even better( I wonder if certain remarks he’s made have hurt him and slowed things down). Anyway, that is an awesome first week. Congrats to Nicki also! I saw her special the other day and although she’s a bit complex, she came across very likeable. I wish some of her peers were that sincere. I’m happy the Burlesque soundtrack had a decent week, I’m expecting it’s 2nd week to be even better. The movie was very good and Xtina was great as an actress and equally just as good as a performer! I was really impressed and reminded of how talented she is! 🙂

  21. Stars December 1, 2010

    TAYLOR SWIFT HAVING A 71 PERCENT UPSURGE!!! SELLING ANOTHER 255,991!! OMG THATS 2 MILLION SOLD IN 5 WEEKS!!

  22. TAMI December 1, 2010

    Oh nahhh Nicki is not a failure! If anything her numbers are AMAZING though!I will not lie, esp with Kanye’s album out the same time.Now if Kanye’s album ain’t out I think she woulda sold more……But you knoww what FIRST ALBUM she did good as s***!Her album is wack but she did good I mean she sold more than Rihanna has on any 5 albums smh and people be callin that girl a legend and icon and s***!I can’t…………………. But honestly I don’t see Nicki in this game for a long time. She be getting boring after a while honestly and I can’t stand all that fake s***!Take off the colored ass ugly wigs and lose all that fakeness them come out with an album and that s*** will SLAYY!Imma need the real Nicki not this popish rapish s*** she giving. Either she wanna be in pop or rap. Smh but forreal that would slaaaaaaaaaaay , just lose all the extra Nicki!Not needed!

  23. TAMI December 1, 2010

    I know Taylor Swift that is f****** amazing!Smh I don’t get what so good bout that girl all her s*** is boring and sounds the same crying over a boy and s***.Lol oh well the lil girls be buying that s***. Lol and hell NO Ke$ha got a number one album before?Damn Riri is allergic to being #1.How Ke$ha no talented ass autotune ass well Rihanna is too but forreal this white drunk b**** got a #1 album?That’s a shame!Next thing you know Willow Smith debut album will debut at #1 before Rihanna gets a #1!Lmaaao I know Beyonce’s DVD sales were higer that both weeks of Rihanna’s album sales!I BET IT!LMAAAAO!!!Smh if Willow SMith gets a number #1 album before Rihanna……………I can’t even………..I will DIE in GIGGLES!

    HARDCORE – DOUBLE PLATINUM

    HARDCORE- CLASSIC

    DONT EVER TRY TO DOWN PLAY A CLASSIC HIP HOP ALBUM!> SO LETS NOT!

  25. HALF AMAZIN December 1, 2010

    YOU RIHANNA CHART STALKERS ARE STRANGE. MOST ALBUM SALES DROP THE SECOND WEEK. SOME ARE LUCKY TO REMAIN AT THE SAME CHART NUMBER BUT MOST ALBUM SALES DECLINE IN THE SECOND WEEK.

    WHILE YOU’RE WORSHIPPING TAYLOR SWIFT, HOW HER FANS ARE ACTUALLY PURCHASING HER ALBUMS NOT DOWNLOADING FOR FREE THEN CLAIMING TO BE HER BIGGEST FANS. BEYONCE DOESNT EVEN SELL LIKE TAYLORS FIRST/SECOND WEEK.

    WE STIFLE OUR ARTISTS, THEN THE ONES WHO ARE SUCCESSFUL…WE FIND A REASON TO HATE THEM.

    I DONT GET IT.

  26. elleuk December 1, 2010

    nicki and drake’s first week sales have been a tad bit poor imo, considering that they were the most anticipated debuts in a long time. with all the hype and their suppose hardcore fans i was expecting more. not a milli but more than they actual sold. hell kanye west manged to sell over half a million and he has folks sending him death threats.
    good look for neyo though, i was expecting alot less, considering his string of flop singles.

  27. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 1, 2010

    I’m happy for Kanye, he may be a pain in the ass personality-wise, but it doesn’t erase his obvious talent.

    Of course, certain bitter-ass stans who buy up 12 copies each of some bland country singer were praying that this dude would flop hard.

  28. Diane December 1, 2010

    @TAMI, Nicki did both pop and “real” hip hop on Pink Friday and she did it well. “Real” music is a hipter’s excuse for failing. Rollingstone Magazine got it right – NICKI IS THE NEW QUEEN OF HIP HOP.

    All these haters coming out just make people want to support her more. Every time somebody came out today and slammed Nicki, her sales went up on Amazon and Itunes. Don’t they know that people like her and will always have compassion and stand by her? The haters are making her sale to people who would not have even known her name. They checking on Pink Friday just for the curiosity. I hope they keep talking and hating.

  29. Britney spears is god December 1, 2010

    when it comes down to when gaga release and britney release their albums please promote the s*** out of britney to the point youll get sick of her. ATTENTION!!!!!!!!ALL britneys stans,fans and all gaga hater’s. When it’s time we are going to take over the internet promoting britney over gagme. Go to every mother f****** blog. Go on CNN FOX NEWS, ESPN, WEB sites, basically telling people about britney’s album. IDC if the article about how we in ww3.BRITNEY BRITNEY BRITNEY,, HER STAN’S ARE ABOUT TO TAKE OVER THE INTERNET BEWARE B******..

  30. Diane December 1, 2010

    I meant to say a “hipster’s” excuse for failing…

  31. Britney spears is god December 1, 2010

    im so serious im goin to start right after they release the first single since Britney cant be trusted in promoting thing right (Circus era). We are gonna do it for her. This year(2011) will determine who’s the Madonna’s succesor. Beyonce(we all know wont win) BRITNEY or gaga. We will take over the internet. Cause I will use my whole body b4 i see gaga out sell britney this go round

  32. SundayNews December 1, 2010

  36. MissImpartial December 1, 2010

    Where is Rihannas hadcore stan Nicky with her numbers. Nicky outsold her with her debut album whereas Rihanna should have sold at 300,000-400,000 copys with Rated X after the monster hit album Good Girl Gone Bad. No more Rihanna who still buys Neyo and the Christina shade it was a soundtrack not an album and her movie grossed more then I expected.

  37. 123456 December 1, 2010

    Rihannas sales for this week si good. Stop being messy

  38. 123456 December 1, 2010

    Usually sales drop 60-70% second week….so Rihanna did great

  39. Pink frazzle December 1, 2010

    It seems that Trent is trying to do the same thing he’s been doing for his Rihanna/Chris Brown posts, start a Stan war. Sorry Trent it’s not working. We can all agree that the hip hop industry is more liberal now because of Kim. We can also agree that there are a lot more promo tools today than it were in 1996. Lastly, we can all agree even you Trent because you’ve even admitted this several times, that Hardcore is a classic! Pink Friday is not and although it sold more units in the first week doesn’t mean anything. Her own barbz are admitting it’s wack. Just because it sold more does not mean it’s better. Hell this sold more than Tupac’s and Biggies albums in the first week. Does that mean Nicki is better than them? Hell no!!!

  40. Traci Summers December 1, 2010

    I WOULD RATHER HAVE A CLASSIC ALBUM THAN A MEANINGLESS ALBUM THAT CHARTED WELL AND THATS A F****** FACT. NOBODY WILL BE BUMPING PINK FRIDAY IN 10 YEARS

  41. Jasmine December 1, 2010

    Kayne is a marketing genius; well he should be by now since he has been in this game for a while. I won’t believe the weekly sales until I see the results posted on billboard.com. People are so quick to believe anything on the internet, its crazy. The world can be so naive. The weekly sales hasn’t been posted yet, so until then… But I am so proud of Nicki for projected album sales to be over 300,000 in week 1, according to billboard.com. Thats is big news for female rap. If anyone can take female rap to the masses its definitely Nicki Minaj. She is open minded, creative and intelligent. Love her unique flow.

  42. Oscar December 1, 2010

    @Pink Frazzle Exactly! Thank God I’m not the last person on earth who can see!!

  43. MissImpartial December 1, 2010

    Britney stan change you name their is only one god and that is not britney. There is stanning and needing to go to stanning rehab. there is only one god that is god (or in arabic allah). Bye the way I like britney not hating just stating.

  44. x December 1, 2010

    Beyonce sells like Taylors second week, yes.
    Dangerously in Love: 317 000
    B’Day: 541 000 (more than Kanye did now, wow! Didnt see that one coming)
    I am…Sasha Fierce: 319 000

    So glad for Kanye West, Nicki and Rihanna! Good for Taylor Swift also 🙂
    However, this site throws too much shade on Rihanna……………. Come on, give the girl her credit. (I would appreciate nobody in here start argue she doesnt have no talent, because she does. If she hadnt, why would Jay-Z sign her instantly? However, dont wanna start any arguing)
    Good sales!

  45. cool yea December 1, 2010

    DAMN Rihanna’s wig gets snatched sooo easily here in the U.S. lol isn’t that random 10 year old STILL pushing more units then she is????

    Why does Taylor Swift get a 71% boost in the her 5th week while Rihanna is getting a 35% decrease in her second? Oh so many questions, with just as many excuses.

    HURRY UP ANDCRACK OUT THOSE WORLDWIDE SALES STANS, BECAUSE SHE SURE ISN’T DOING ANYTHING AMAZING ON THE ALBUMS CHART WHERE I AM FROM LOL

    Anyway, i found Nicki’s album quite wack, and extremely OVERRATED and Lil Kim should jus go and retire. Please both of you, GO AWAY

  46. TRY AGAIN December 1, 2010

    How is Rihanna flopping when she managed to sell another 133,000+ copies 2nd week? I bet none of you a**holes looked at the other releases the week of November 16 to see how much they sold. For the record, they ALL sold way less than Rihanna. And Rihanna hasn’t even been promoting her album. Just give the girl some credit, and stop being so bitter.

  47. Tami December 1, 2010

    Wait stop it!!Jackie that lil girl still sold more than RIhanna in her SECOND WEEK!?SERIOUSLY!????????????????????????????????Dammnn I needa know who this lil girl is!She got my respect for life!Smh!Selling better than grown ass women in the game for #5 damn years!

  48. cool yea December 1, 2010

    Nicki has a pretty good debut tho, i wont lie

    …..Hmmmm but i wonder if she has longevity?

  49. jane December 1, 2010

    LOL AT RIHANNA BEING ALLERGIC TO NUMBER ONE
    PROUD OF KANYE HE MAY BE A PEST BUT HE IS A MUSICAL GENIUS I SEE THAT ALBUM DOING WELL AT THE GRAMMYS NEXT YEAR
    NEXT YEAR IS GONNA BE REALLY INTERESTING
    WE ARE DEFINETELY GONNA SEE WHO IS THE REAL QUEEN
    BEYONCE…..GAGA……BRITNEY
    CANT WAIT

  50. Tami December 1, 2010

    I really don’t get the whole Taylor Swift movement.Honestly what is so great about the girl???????Really all her songs are slow and boring.Hell I think You Belong With Me was her only dancy type of song!But she does sell very good and all these Rihanna stans talking about Rihanna didn’t promote her album in second week, well neither did Taylor and her sales are high as s***!?*Waits for why* How long has Taylor been in the game and how long has Rihanna?? And you are telling me her 5th album selling only 207K first week is her best!?That’s so weak and y’all just admit it. I’m waiting for her WW sales caz them stans will jump on that s***.Lmaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaooooooooooo!

  51. royalkev December 1, 2010

    @ X, IASF did 482,000 in it’s first week not 319,000.

  52. candylove December 1, 2010

    Yall need to kill that s*** pink Friday was not and I repeat was not wack neither was it a classic masterpiece
    I knew it was gonna be pop but I was surprise she had toned it down a lot and had substantial lyrics that told motivational stories even tho I kinda like the raunchy nicki better I’m glad she was able to explain herself without so much s** all the time
    But no that cd was not wack and the reviews have all been saying its average at worst
    But that’s just her first cd we shall see what she does next
    Congrats to them all tho

  53. Tami December 1, 2010

    I am not hating on Nicki I’m being real.She has great numbers for her debut but she ain’t gonna last.Lol I’m sorry but maybe she can squeeze one more album and people gonna be over her.She is not gonna last in the game and all this s*** with Kim is gonna come back to haunt her ass..Sorry it’s true!!!

  54. THEREALNICKY December 1, 2010

    CONGRATS RIHANNA !!!!!

    THIS SHOULD BRING HER 2ND WORLDWIDE TOTAL TO 700,000+ , AND 1 MILLION BY 3 WEEKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    RIHANNA WILL ALSO BE MAKING CHART HISTORY ACROSS THE POND!!!!!!

    WTC , WMN AND OG WILL ALL BE IN THE TOP 10 IF THINGS KEEP GOING THE WAY THEY ARE!!!!!

    CONGRATS RIH!

  55. Britney spears is god December 1, 2010

    i dont really think britney is god. Im just hyping her up. Next year is gonna be when the new Queen is crown. So everyone promote BRITNEY

  56. THEREALNICKY December 1, 2010

    @ MISS IMPARTIAL

    NICKI DID GREAT , LOVE THAT CHICK!!! I PURCHASED THE ALBUM.

    BUT LET’S NOT BE DUMB HUN……..RIHANNA WILL SELL MORE THAN HER IN THE LONG RUN.

    DRAKE DEBUTED WITH 475K AND IS TOPPING OUT AT AROUND 1.3-1.4M IN THE US AND HE HAD MORE HITS THAN NICKI.

  57. Tami December 1, 2010

    Lool here come the Rihanna stans bringing in the WW!Smh!!!!How long til she gets one million in US alone!?*WaitS* for LOUD!????????????????????????When she sells as much as IASF not even WW only in the states!Lmaaaaaao then we’ll talk about chart history!Smhh history my ass!

  58. MissImpartial December 1, 2010

    @Jane

    I think Britney is gonna outsell Beyonce as Circus(500,000) outsold Beyonces 482,000. Beyonce had also killer promo. By the way we’re talking about first week sale. With gaga as she is all hype no substance and gluing herself to the gays she’ll probably will sell 1Mill. But that does not make her queen as beyonce and britney have been 10+ years in the industry. They also had more impact then the others and are one of best performers. They had numerous iconic performances without gimmicks.

  59. candylove December 1, 2010

    She not gone last??
    And how you figure???for anything I wouldn’t be suppose if she do a straight hip hop record like kanye and gain even more fans
    Motherfckers been sayin nicki was gone flop for a while now and yet she has still managed to pull impressive numbers and stay on the charts
    Kim ain’t doing nothing and if she was to put out a record today she couldn’t get half those numbers
    Get real keep hopin but the girl got some tricks up her sleeves and she ain’t goin nowhere time soon

  60. Tami December 1, 2010

    @CandyLove
    I guess we will just see!!! I love Nicki but honestly I don’t know………… I hope she does I like her but I don’t see her being in the game for that long!But much love to her and she has MAD respect from me for selling more than Rihanna’s 5 albums first week sales!:D Lool! And I f*** with Right Thru Me that’s my jam!

  61. Nichole December 1, 2010

    “Lol I’m sorry but maybe she can squeeze one more album and people gonna be over her.She is not gonna last in the game”

    I remember people saying that same ole stuff about Britney Spears, yet she’s still here.

    Anywhoo. Nicki did decent numbers in her first week, but to be honest, those numbers are a complete disappointment. I mean…just like Drake, she was over hyped like a mutha. Nicki was all over other artists s***, and they spent so much time hyping her up and she only managed to do under 400k. Her first week sales are very disappointing.

    Taylor Swift and Subo are still doing it big I see.

    Congrats to Kanye.

    Also congrats to Mariah for getting a 22% increase with 42,000 copies sold, with no promo. MCIIU looks to be success after all.

    @ TAMI

    WHO’S FROM THE UNITED STATES HUN? BEYONCE

    RIHANNA IS FROM BARBADOS AND IS OWNING THE WORLD RIGHT NOW.

    DONT YOU JUST LOVE HOW RIHANNA HAS 2-3 SONGS IN THE TOP 10 IN JUST ABOUT EVERY COUNTRY?

    http://www.apple.com/euro/itunes/charts/top10songs.html

    IT’S HARD FOR ANY FOREIGN CHICK TO BREAK INTO THE US MARKET AND SELL CONSISTENTLY

    AND RIHANNA IS DOING JUST THAT.

  64. MissImpartial December 1, 2010

    I think it is great that Taylor swift is selling 1Mill copies and so without having to resort to wearing slutty clothes. This should teach other female singers class will always pay and is more respected. anyone agree.

  65. Britney spears is god December 1, 2010

    wHO Do yall think gonna be the new queen..It not gonna be rihanna or taylor.(So dont even bring them up,I love them both im stating not hating lol) Britney gaga AND beyonce.
    AND IF SAM AND TRENT WAS SMART THEY WOULD MAKE A POST ABOUT THIS. CAUSE THEY WILL GET MAD HITS LOL. Because all three are dropping albums early next year

  66. RihannaForever December 1, 2010

    You guys are crazy. Why are you bashing Nicki and Rihanna? First off, you need to understand that Rihanna never sells largely in weeks. Each week, Rihanna sells decently and moderately, but overall she reaches big sales. The first week sales are important, no doubt, but overall sales are way bigger.

    Gaga sold 24k FIRST WEEK with The Fame and that’s nearing 4x Platinum – one of the hugest album sellers in the past few years. Longevity>>>First week sales.

    Maybe Rihanna isn’t selling hugely first week, but she always goes AT LEAST Platinum.

    As for Nicki, these are the SECOND BEST FIRST WEEK SALES FOR A FEMALE RAP ARTIST EVER. Like I said, the first week sales aren’t a huge deal, and even Nicki has said that herself, but I do see this selling lots each week. People talk about how Hardcore went 2x Platinum but I’m willing to bet that in 2 years (the amount of time Hardcore took to go 2x Platinum) that Pink Friday will go 2x Platinum.

    You guys can talk about how bad Pink Friday was, but tons of bad albums have sold hugely. Yes, the matter of whether the album is good or not is important but that’s only opinion. Sales are factual and much more important.

    I know that Nicki has had more promotion than Kim, but Hardcore took SIX MONTHS to go Gold, when Pink Friday will very likely go Gold next week.

    I also must say that you cannot call Kim the Queen of Rap (if anyone has said that…) because Missy Elliot is much more successful, creative, and talented by most standards (my opinion and many others’). Missy had the 2nd best first week sales for a female rapper’s album until now. Missy has shown so much creativity and is above Kim in every retrospect.

    Lastly, why is it that Lauryn is regarded as one of the best female rappers to date when she sang a LOT on The Miseducation but Nicki is a sellout for singing on her album? I’m not comparing Nicki to Lauryn because Nicki has a LOT LOT LOT LOT LOT of work to do if she ever wants to reach that status, but it’s just a point.

    Nicki could go a few ways from here – she could become more similar to Missy, Kim, or Eve. My bet’s Missy. In 20 years, looking back at Nicki, I think we’ll see a rapper that was very similar to Missy. At least Missy, unlike Kim, never insulted Nicki. Missy is extremely intelligent and amazing, while Kim is a sociopath who is losing fans left and right.

    Lastly, Kanye’s creativity on MBDTF was epic and he did deserve the top spot. I’m very proud of Nicki, though I do wish that she had pushed 400k. Unlike some people, I’m not disappointed at ALL with my copy. As for Ne-Yo, those are huge numbers for someone who’s having his own Bionic right now…

    I’m happy for Kanye, he may be a pain in the ass personality-wise, but it doesn’t erase his obvious talent.

    Of course, certain bitter-ass stans who buy up 12 copies each of some bland country singer were praying that this dude would flop hard.

    Yes that girl Taylor Swift got my respect!She not popping booty shaking her ass and damn near b*** nekid and she selling like that!AMAZING!!I hope Willow follows in the same steps. I’m glad we have good music for the kiddies!Because little girls knowing all the words to Nicki Minaj but NOT their ABCS is just a f****** shame!

  79. X,Y,”and Z” December 1, 2010

    UP-COMES Nicki Minaj; DOWN-GOES Rihanna…!!

    With numbers like those (almost 400K)? You can best-believe, Nicki is NOT ONLY getting the Urban consumers, she’s reaching all-about/all-over the demographic…!!

    And (as I’ve been saying), “the stage isn’t big-enough, not for 4: Beyonce, Gaga, Nicki and Rihanna”…someone MUST leave; exit, stage right, soon-never-to-be-seen, nor-ever-again-to-be-heard-from, one Robyn Rihanna Fenty…!! (they won’t even bother to send out a search and rescue party!)

    So now, what’s next….??? Well, “what’s next” is for Rihanna to do even more interviews talking ’bout Chris Brown, but, even then, no one will care! You see, Rihanna, “given the finality” of this weeks numbers, is now irrelevant…!!
    …It’ll be like you’ll hear and see pictures of Rihanna (even that “Feb 8th-09 Chrianna” picture), and then you’ll wonder: “Rihanna who…..???” It’ll be like, she’s a total stranger, “a nobody”…!!

    Her now “falling down that Rabbit hole”, the coming Mel Gibson trial, and hopefully, the NYPD/Manhattan DA charging Charlie Sheen with cocaine possession AND Assault/Battery, and just maybe his Colorado probation being revoked, will have lots of folks talking and finally wondering – “why did they torment, ostracize and crucify” that 19-year-old boy in the first place…??”

    X,Y, “and Z” — OUT….!!!

  80. Jay Jay December 1, 2010

  82. cool yea December 1, 2010

    It’s really funny how the Rihanna stans have to resort to WW sales to make a point LOL

    When stans of Nicki, Kanye, Beyonce, and Taylor Swift can talk of only U.S. sales, because their numbers here in the states can hold its own. They are never so desperate and quick to go WW…..only the Rihanna stans lol

    @Drew
    Thanks, LOL.

    @CoolYea
    I don’t, LOL. Rihanna may not sell hugely at first in the US but her overall sales are fine/great. I stan for Nicki too, by the way.

    @Tami
    When is Willow’s album dropping?

    @JayJay
    I TOTALLY agree. That’s amazing to me.

    @X,Y, and “Z”
    Don’t act like Nicki is competition for Ri, Beyonce, and Gaga. Nicki is a RAPPER. Yes, she reaches the pop crowds but she isn’t a pop princess.

    And there is room for 4. The current FIVE are B, Gaga, Katy, Kesha, and Ri.

    @Badd
    Did you hear the lead single from Born This Way doesn’t drop until FEBRUARY? I think this album will drop in April/May T_T.

    @MissImpartial
    Shut up. The RIAA has thousands and thousands of albums that still need to be certified, they just haven’t reached all yet. Rated R has sold over 1 million copies and is awaiting the Platinum certification it deserves.

  97. cool yea December 1, 2010

    @ Icon

    Saying Beyonce’s dad bought her grammys is just as pitiful as saying Def Jam buys Rihanna’s #1’s

    Do you know what that is? Jealous ppl trying to down someone’s else success just to make themselves feel better

  98. Badd December 1, 2010

    “And (as I’ve been saying), “the stage isn’t big-enough, not for 4: Beyonce, Gaga, Nicki and Rihanna”…someone MUST leave; exit, stage right, soon-never-to-be-seen, nor-ever-again-to-be-heard-from, one Robyn Rihanna Fenty…!! (they won’t even bother to send out a search and rescue party!)”

    Beyonce, Gaga, Nicki and Rihanna…….???????
    It was never like this lmaoo.

    More like GaGa, Beyonce, & Britney as the top three.
    & Ke$ha, Rihanna, and Katy Perry as the step down wannabes.
    Then Nicki’s in there but she’s on the level of Ke$ha, Rihanna, and Katy Perry.

    But that is going to happen after this album for Rihanna
    They’re quickly buying all of her singles to #1 so that she’ll be remebered by
    something before they either send her ot Europe or deport her back
    to Barbados to never be heard from again.

  99. Tami December 1, 2010

    Willow’s album drops early 2011. You know what you are a Rihanna stan?You are not annoying like s*** like the others!Lmaao RESPECT!

    I’m DISMISSED? Almost every f*****’ pop star from Barbados comes to the US so none of em achieve any f****** special thing by reaching the US. Good job, Riyodel. At least I DON’T STAN FOR A GOAT. And at least QUEEN B NEVER SOLD HER ALBUMS (rated r…) FOR NO 99 CENTS.

    AND I’M DISMISSED? WHAT THE F*** ARE YOU, MY TEACHER?
    DEAAAAAAAAD.

    Dear Beyonce,

    Please, please, please, please release your album next month. Rihanna and her stans are starting to think that she runs the game when all the rest of us know you are the best woman in the game. Please put her back in her seat before her head reaches the size of Kanye’s.

    Sincerely,
    Drew.

  101. GAbrielle December 1, 2010

    Nicki should have sold a million with all the hype around her .since she was forced down our throats for about 2 years. Nicki is an artist whether either you hate or love her. As much people love there is the same amount who hate her. I guarantee her sales will go drasticallty downhill from her. Everyone that will buy this album already did. This number she moved isn’t amazing to me. Look at all the promo guest features.

  102. Tami December 1, 2010

    I can’t at Icon saying daddy bought Beyonce’s Grammys!B**** THAT WAS TRUE HARD WORK AND TALENT!ALL F****** 16 of them!

    Def SCAM BUYS YOUR “QUEEN” s*** and you should not be talking when Rihanna had to discount OG to get a #1!

  103. cool yea December 1, 2010

    I like you 🙂 one of the few NORMAL Rihanna stans lol

    But yea Loud is assured to go platinum in the U.S. regardless…

    @Icon
    Shut up, seriously. Comparing B and Ri is like comparing apples and oranges – they don’t even make remotely similar music.

    @Tami
    LOL, thanks. I get that a lot, actually. Some of my friends are even amazed that I like Rihanna because they think she’s a waste – especially since I like a lot of amazing icons like MJ, David Bowie, etc. and I like the other people like B. I’m referred to as the Sane Rihanna Stan of TGJ, LMAO.

    Also, people like Nicky and other Rihanna stans say I’m an undercover Beyonce/CB stan because I don’t hate them, LMFAO. DEAD.

  106. Tami December 1, 2010

    But what you said makes SOOOOOO much more sense tho.
    Because Demeber is just was to early. But I think thye were just lying
    to get hits on their website…thought February is such a long timeee. 🙁

    @Tami
    LOL, thanks. I just seriously can’t believe some of the stuff that Nicky says. Even Icon seems delusional as hell too, LOL DEAD.

    @TrueBlue
    Oh, LOL. I don’t love Gaga but I don’t see how anyone can be a hater towards her. What is there to hate…the only thing I don’t like about her at ALL is that she’s becoming the female Kanye with her ego. At least when it comes to BTW.

    And yes, a GROWN-ASS WOMAN. I’m only in my early 20s but I can’t bring myself to buy it. I have given ALL three of her albums a fair chance but all of them are horrible – that’s why it’s funny to me when Taylor stans tell me that I should listen to her music first. But anyways, for a woman likely twice my age to buy ALL of them, I died.

    Then I got behind her in line and the cashier was like “that’s a lot of one CD” and she got DEFENSIVE. She said she had a lot of kids, LMAO SMH. 20 kids?

    @TheRealNicky
    What the F*** is your problem? You’ve made it your mission countless times to try and convince me that you won’t “address me” but you read comments directed towards me? DELUSIONS!!!! DEAD LOL.

    @Badd
    I know! The good thing is that Gaga said it herself so it’s likely that it won’t change. She called BTW rebellious and bad (like not bad bad but like good bad…lmao), though, so I cannot wait now LMAO.

    Oh well…as long as the quality is high, I can wait.

  125. Tami December 1, 2010

    @Willow Smith Is God
    Honestly Willow will have some STRONG Debut sales.She is a Smith,it’s in her blood and having Jay-Z and Beyonce on your side sure gonna help!Also it helps daddy is Will Smith and mommy is Jada Pinkett Smith aka she has access to the F****** BEST!!!!!!!!!!!

  126. RihannaForever December 1, 2010

    @Tami
    HAHA no she doesn’t follow me LMAO. I doubt that @TheRealNicky has even bought Loud. Poor thing can’t get out of the mental hospital to buy it 🙁 LOL. I just don’t get why ALL of em are so DAMN delusional. Nicky doesn’t even make SENSE.

    Yeah, well if you read the article, you could understand why some people would getting their claws out. But the comment section over there is even more frantic than the one here, hardcore fans vs. haters. You can only imagine. You have some delusional comments, ranging from “she’s one of the best musicians in the history of mankind” to “I hope she dies in a plane crash”. http://music-mix.ew.com/2010/11/30/lady-gaga-born-this-way/

    And the grown Taylor stan that was ahead of you… I swear some people need their heads checked. I wouldn’t buy 20 copies of my fave’s album, even if I had the money for it!

  128. Tami December 1, 2010

    2011 will be the YEAR for Beyonce,Gaga,Willow, and Britney.Seriously people better get ready Willow will flipping BLOW UP next year!I’m proud of her anyway. Like I said I rather have lil girls singing Willow and Whippin hair then knowing all the words to Wanye and Nicki songs!Smh!

  129. WILLOW SMITH is god December 1, 2010

    @Tami I would be so happy if she out sold britney gaga and beyonce next year. She probably wont but she’s gonna have a better career than the rest of them.. BUT BUY BRITNEY’S ALBUM NEXT YEAR

    I love Willow but her outselling Queen Bey and Gaga and Britney!Get real now.Lol I mean Willow is my girl and all but well it could happen.Look at that lil Hannah Montana girl and Taylor Swift so who knows honestly. Oh duh I will support Britney,Gaga,Beyonce, and Willow next year!I really see Willow taking over the kiddies with this one song already so her album eeeh it’s gonna be a hit with the kiddies and when she goes on tour smhhh let’s just see BIEBER WHO!???Lol

  133. cool yea December 1, 2010

    These crazy Rihanna stans are too busy supporting their girl on the blogs when it SHOULD be at the register-where it really counts

  134. RihannaForever December 1, 2010

    @Tami
    I know, it’s sad! She has almost 3 million Twitter followers and this one Rihanna Navy website has like 1/2 a million members but not even have of them bought Loud first week. I did! LOL.

    @TrueBlue
    That was a controversial article, true. I think Lady Gaga’s kind of insane to say that (remember The Killers’ Sam’s Town?), but maybe she’ll surprise everyone…who knows.
    But that comment section was HILARIOUS but also REALLY, REALLY SAD. Some of those people are just…insane.

  135. MissImpartial December 1, 2010

    Are you all sad and really counting willow among the ones you listen to.
    And about the grammy subject I can’t belive beyonce has 16 grammys and think it is fishy.
    Come on Single Ladies crap was given record of the year ubrella was more deserving then that s*** it only got it because of the video.

    Beyonce is perfect live but she is a fraud i mean she copied britneys whole ama 2003 perfomance and recycled it into ring the alarm. Does she have no shame not to mention J.Lo. Shakira among others but I blame Jay-Z. I think he taught her to steal from other artist as she was original while in DC. He also made her change her image into a more sexier side.

    She used to sing Survivor, Independent woman, Nasty Girl not it is Video phone, Naughty Girl and more s**. I prefered her before as she had also more personality.

  136. Tami December 1, 2010

    Exactly in my Mariah Carey voice *YOU Delusional* This is why Rihanna sales are so weak!Y’all talk the talk but don’t walk the walk!Y’all don’t be buying her albums!I bet most of these delusionals downloaded her album for free.Like did it ever occur why Nicki’s sales are so good?People actually buy her s*** and her stans LITERALLY BUY HER S*** LIKE 4 or 5 and s***.But I never hear Rihanna stans saying they bought more than one copy of Loud!Smh!

  137. THEREALNICKY December 1, 2010

    @ RIHANNA FOREVER

    YOU’RE SUCH A DUMB IDIOT LMFAO!!!

    SO ARE YOU EXPECTING LADY GAGA TO SELL 3 MILLION FIRST WEEK SINCE SHE HAS 6 MILLION FOLLOWERS!!!

    OR HOW ABOUT JUSTIN BIEBER WHO SOLD 280K HIS FIRST WEEK WHEN HE HAS 6 MILLION FOLLOWERS

    NON SENSICAL CHICK!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAH

  138. ICON December 1, 2010

  139. WILLOW SMITH is god December 1, 2010

    will everyone forget rihanna IM A fan i bought loud, but she wont be the top chick in the game she’s close but she’s only 22, like damn let her live, who care’s if she’s not selling more than beyonce she’s off to a better start than beyonce was. Dont say beyonce was in dc we all know that but rihanna has 9 #1, and she wasnt groomed for the bussiness by the time she 30 is will have out performed them all or she could be another paula abdul. who know’s but let rihanna live for now cause next year. She WILL GET BLOWN AWAY BY THE TOP B****** IN THE GAME. Beyonce and Britney worked to be the top b****** in the game. BRITNEY IS THE BIGGEST THO HER FIRST ALBUM OUT SOLD BEYONCE CARRER 25MIL TO 23MIL

  140. THEREALNICKY December 1, 2010

    YOUR FAVE CAN NEVER!!!!!! :

    “Who’s That Chick”, will debut in the top 10 singles chart next week in the UK. The song will join fellow top-10ers “What’s My Name?” and “Only Girl In The World” on the chart simultaneously.. making Rihanna the first female to have three top 10 singles on the chart at once.

    The last person to do this was John Lennon in the 1970s.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA

    RIHANNA IS OWNING THE UK!

  141. Tami December 1, 2010

    @MissImpartial
    Yes I count Willow because she has AMAZING potential and honestly so much talent and she’s proved it to me more than RIhanna and our “pop singers” nowadays. I suggest you Youtube Willow Smith Performs on Ellen and you’ll see why.She puts 95.5% of our “artists” to shame and honestly I see her as being HUGE HUGE HUGE!I’m happy and proud of her and yes her album will be very much expected for 2011.

  142. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 1, 2010

    @ RihannaForever (still getting used to your new name):

    Let’s not forget Oasis saying they were gonna be bigger than The Beatles…SMH. I honestly think that statement alone killed any shot they had of being as massive as they’d hoped.

  148. RihannaForever December 1, 2010

    @TheRealNicky
    I thought you weren’t addressing me anymore. DEAD. Anyways your correct in that Rihanna is doing EXTREMELY well in Europe right now, but my point with the Twitter followers is that 1/2 of them can’t buy a copy for some reason and another 1/4 maybe don’t because they like that person but don’t want an album, but a lot of fans/stans can buy copie(s) but don’t for absolutely no reason. I doubt you even bought Loud.

  149. Tami December 1, 2010

    Honestly some of you Rihanna stans are straight up sick and crazy.At least the Beyonce stans can back s*** up and don’t have to use iTunes charts and WW sales because we can’t even talk about American sales because they are so low. *Yawns* Beyonce DESTORYS Rihanna US SALES ALONE!Smh WW sales don’t even get me started…Y’all just be making up s*** she sold this and that!B**** why she ain’t #1 then!?She allergic to #1 on Billboard no she’s been cursed that’s why.The Curse of Rihanna never being able to get a #1 album.Lol

  150. S*** December 1, 2010

    Rihanna has 7 #1s, the last 2 suck & so does LTWYL, that STILL Sucks. So she has 5 #1s, Not 9, not 7 as far as Im concerned & I dont see ‘LOUD 2.5/5’ selling much in the long run either. Probably less than Rated R.

    IASF still remains the highest selling album from a BLK artist since its release 2 years ago & next year we’ll have another selling atleast 4/5 million Bey remaining the highest selling BLK Album Artist of today… Hits artis2

    But does anyone know when Beyonce, Britney, or Willow’s albums are
    even speculated to be released??? Is Beyonce supposed to be at
    the beginning of 2011 ????

  153. MissImpartial December 1, 2010

    @tami

    I saw her performance but I think it is way to early for her to be in show biz . Her parents are mad don’t they have enough money without having to pimp their kids out.
    No hating but she needs a childhood as this is the most precious time and also the fastest.

  154. Tami December 1, 2010

    @RihannaForever
    PREACH GIRL!Let’s be real here RIhanna should be doing so much better than what she did.Honestly!Smh I bet @THEREALNICKY got her loud copy on bootleg!Lol

  155. cool yea December 1, 2010

    @ Rihannaforever

    I 100000% agree with you

    That Rihanna Navy is so damn obsessed with that chick, what the fluck is up with them not supporting their girl? They front and lie saying they bought loud, but they know damn well they bootleg that s*** lol

    Broke b****** only have the spare change to buy singles

  156. RihannaForever December 1, 2010

    @TrueBlue
    LOL I don’t love my new name but I didn’t want to have to change my name when she releases new albums (if I am still using TGJ in say a year or two), so I chose something less temporary. Anyways, I’m not a huge fan of either Oasis or The Beatles but The Beatles were legendary and did really make huge waves so that’s an insane thing for Oasis to say.

    It’s sad to me that some artists think they’re doing themselves a favor by overhyping material when it really doesn’t ever seem to help. Beyonce and Alicia Keys are examples of artists who don’t talk about their new material much until people hear it in entirety and I don’t know many people who have been disappointed largely by albums by either, LOL.

She has stole songs from writers and said she wrote the,/ Beyawnce??? Real Talent??? Or please last time I checked shaking your ass is hardly a talent.

    @MissImpartial
    How are they pimping her out?Do you know that Will Smith is one of the highest paid actors in Hollywood EVER?Willow wanted to do this on her own and you can so tell that.No little girl would be working as hard as she did or gave that much in her performance is she didn’t want to and she really WANTS this so why not?Her parents have the resources.It’s not like she has a normal childhood anyway.Her parents are Will and Jada. She’s not being pimped out and says she WANTS this not her PARENTS.I don’t understand how you can pimp your kid do you know how much they $$$ the Smiths be making please that chicken scratch their kids get don’t mean s***!They let those kids go after their dreams.Nothing wrong with it. I’m not hating either just being real here…….

    It’s just like if your kids wanted to play soccer.Wouldn’t you wanna support them and give them all they need to do well in it?That’s exactly what Will and Jada, I see nothing wrong with supporting their kids dreams!I mean if the kids didn’t actually have talent then I understand but they ACTUALLY really do……..

  162. The F*** December 1, 2010

    REAL TALK 101: The only people that should be happy about their album sales are Kanye and Taylor Swift.

    Kanye sold well while being HATED, with TERRIBLE promo in the form of bad, excuse me, f***** up interviews.

    Taylor Swift sold what everybody else you listed SHOULD be selling. With all the damn advertisement these b****** did on Youtube, talk shows, and award shows, why in the f*** CAN’T they sell at least half a mil????????

    What in the f*** do you think the advertisers SPENT on these b******?????

    The only one I have any hope for long term is Rihanna. I don’t like the chick, but she does have a slow burn to 1 mil by New Years.

    Having said that, I couldn’t take a s*** without seeing this red headed b****’s advertisement, so why is she NOT at 1 mil before Dec 1st?

    SMDH at n***** c****** in their pants over thousandaires that now OWE their record label.

    As far as Nicki is concerned:

    A) Two or three actual hip hop songs does NOT make a pop album a hip hop album. If that was the case the K$sha is hip hop cuz her ass talk/raps in a few songs too–>J/K. So I say Nicki should never be compared to other hip hop artists.

    B) She is another POP b**** that was promoted out the ass so why NO half a mil in sales???

    C) Based on your logic above Nicki is BETTER than EVERY hip hop artist that did not sell over 300k first week like Tupac, Big, Rakim, KRS-ONE, etc. Who cares if that same album went on to sell a mill, and went plat. that year right? Yeah, you make A LOT of sense. That must be some good ass CRACK you’re smoking.

    D) Nelly out sold KRS-ONE too while they had beef. Where is Nelly now? Exactly.

    @Badd
    I cannot wait, LMAO. LOL one of the nicest things about being a Ri stan is that I never have to wait very long for new material.
    Willow’s is supposed to drop February/March from what I’ve heard, while Britney’s will be released before March 31, 2011 and Beyonce’s…well no one ever knows. It’s due for the first 1/2 of 2011 right now, but she already shot the album’s cover according to a couple of blogs, so I’m guessing February/March.

    @CoolYea and @Tami
    I know! Unless you seriously cannot purchase it, don’t call yourself a stan unless you buy their music…legally and in full. I highly doubt that @TheRealNicky ACTUALLY bought Loud, and didn’t bootleg it. LMAO SMH.

    @TrueBlue
    Oh, and the woman spent over 300 DOLLARS on the Taylor Swift albums. That’s just insane to me.

  168. Badd December 1, 2010

Don’t people learn from the past artists who have made the terrible mistake of overhyping their work, what was the outcome when they did? Terrence Trent D’Arby, anyone? I understand being excited, but you have to keep your ego in check. Artists who have put out albums that are now seen as some of the greatest ever made NEVER made boastful declarations about how big that album would be. You never heard Michael Jackson say Thriller was gonna be the best pop album ever made. Dude wasn’t even arrogant like that. He just let greatness speak for itself, and that’s how it’s supposed to be. Hell, I don’t even recall Kanye saying any of his albums were gonna be the best hip-hop albums of any given era.

    You can not compare soccer with showbiz and I know that the smith family is rich but in the end they are the parents who should be doing the parenting. If your child asks to do show biz at that age would you not be worried i mean this is stage school. And anyway it is not like she is gonna say my parents forced her to do it. they could have said wait till your 15 or so. By the way saw the ellen interview she seemed to not know how to answer question and did not know what her song mean. I am not hating i just don’t want her to blame and regret having to start so early and complain about not having the chance to be a normal kid.

  179. Tami December 1, 2010

    I know shame on some of you Rihanna stans!Even Nicki has better stans than Rihanna.Lol damn they actually BUY HER S*** FOR ONCE and by BUY I MEAN BUY COPIES not some bootleg s*** or download it from Limewire!That’s why her sales are so weak y’all ain’t buying it!Lol!A TRUE STAN BUYS THE ARTIST’S ALBUM AND I WILL BUY WILLOW,Beyonce, Britney, and Gaga’s album and support and not bootleg that s*** and hell the numbers will be higer than Rihanna!

    LMAO, I’m just proud of Willow. A 10 year old! I know I wasn’t at ALL like that when I was 10. I am proud of Ri, though. Her performances have improved by miles in the past month alone. As for Drake, I agree…kind of. Drake and Weezy make sense together for me but I don’t get Nicki with Weezy. Nicki and Wayne seem like totally different people.

    But I do agree that Drake should be on Roc Nation. As for Jay-Z, that’s true. His next record comes out next spring and so does his collabo album with Kanye, Watch the Throne. LOL, DAMN! I usually love the end of the year holiday season for albums but early next year will be AMAZING with albums. I forgot that Avril’s dropping an album next March/April too.

    @Badd
    I don’t know why, but if it’s better than TML I’m fine with it. I wonder what’s with the title, though.

    I think everyone sale is respectable enough including rihanna’s.

    LOL@ ICON. How much time did you say beyonce is a fraud?
    Thats all you’ve got?

  197. RihannaForever December 1, 2010

    @TrueBlue
    I agree. In my opinion at least, Nicki lived up to her hype. Drake sounds exactly like Wayne and I’m hoping Take Care changes my opinion on that. Nicki is…a breath of fresh air to me whereas Drake is a rehashing.

  198. The F*** December 1, 2010

    I don’t stan for NONE of these b****** because they are not cutting me a f****** check so I’m just going to say it from a business standpoint.

    Lady Gaga IS a very good example of first week sales not being so great but then rocketing out of this world. Her next album should be very anticipated. Translation= sales out the ass first week.

    And a lot of that has to do with her stage shows. She gives it to people so she deserves to get that respect. It is how it should be. Perform well live and you will reap the benefits.

    Rihanna DOES have a big UK following and that is what is helping her. The world don’t revolve around the US. If you read the Billboard charts for other countries I bet you don’t even KNOW half the top ten artists, and they are getting PAID!

    Kanye did not do as well over seas as he did in the US but he could s*** his pants and be remembered as a great artist so…

    Beyonce is VERY anticipated worldwide but she needs to take her time. This is when most STRONG artists have their first career flop.

    Nicki should stay in the pop lane to stay relevant. She’s not built for this rap s***. Matter of fact, she should just sing. Imagine “Right Thru Me” if it had no rap verse (just singing). Exactly.

    Taylor Swift can easily become like Leanne Rimes if she is not careful. Leanne who? Exactly.

    I see some new b****** star’s on the rise right now. PAY ATTENTION! This time next year, a LOT of b****** are going to be forgotten about.

  199. RihannaForever December 1, 2010

    @TheRealNicky
    I’m RiRiLoud, genius. I changed my name. And why are you mentioning me, anyways? You told me you were done addressing me. LOL what a contradiction.

  200. d December 1, 2010

    Haters ALWAYSSSSS find a way to get get in….i mean seriously 371k first week for a debut…..people that’s HUGE no matter how you spin it. Not only do those numbers s*** on ALL other female mc’s(minus Lauryn) but its better than most acts in the industry period!! Lmao and people were giving props to Rihanna just cracking 200k for the first after 5 attempts,despite 9 number 1’s and other those other achievements…..

  201. Rated Xxx(aka rated x) December 1, 2010

    Come on now, who the hell thought Nicky minaj was gonna sell more than Kanye?

    white america might still hate Kanye, but dude is always gonna sell regardless…

    let see..
    first week 200k
    second week 133k..
    go rihanna, u sure are killing the game….

    what week is taylor swift on, and that bish is still sellling more than pon de fore head?

    who the hell is still checking for Neyo? I mean I like the dude, but he needs to stick to writting hits for other people

  202. RihannaForever December 1, 2010

    @TheFuck
    Listen to “Roman’s Revenge”, “Monster” (with Jay-Z, Kanye West, Rick Ross, etc.), “Did It on’Em” and Nicki’s mixtapes and tell me she isn’t “cut out for rap”. DEAD.

  203. The F*** December 1, 2010

    True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue is stating THE TRUTH. Dead at the Terence Trent Darby ref. ALL NEW ARTISTS SHOULD LOOK HIM UP to know what NOT to do.

  204. RihannaForever December 1, 2010

    @Rated XXX
    No offense, but you shouldn’t be bashing those artists when you stan for Jazmine Sullivan (as I assume). I love her music, but she has next-to-no success on the charts.

  205. RihannaForever December 1, 2010

    Does anyone else notice that Rihanna has touched Nicki’s b*** like a million times? I wonder about some things…

  206. BLACk December 1, 2010

    YESS trent u throw’ shade and be shady at the same time.lol SHots @ rihanna was funny as hell.

  207. THEREALNICKY December 1, 2010

    TAYLOR WOULD BE OWNING LADY GAGA , BEYONCE , BRITNEY AS WELL ON THE US CHARTS

    SOOOOOO YOURE POINT IS???????

  208. BLACk December 1, 2010

    WOW, NICKI MINAJ OUTSOLD RIHANNA, sad

  209. BLACk December 1, 2010

    yall go get JAZMINE SUllivan ALBUm..better than most albums that just droped…

  210. RihannaForever December 1, 2010

    YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES. I just heard Nicki’s releasing “Moment 4 Life” with Drake as the next single from Pink Friday. That’s a GENIUS idea because that song is way more urban and rap than the stuff she’s released but is still commercial enough to be a hit, especially with Drake.

    And Nicki has been called a bad businesswoman when she’s choosing singles like these? Intelligent much?

  211. RihannaForever December 1, 2010

    @TrueBlue
    LOL that’s true. And Regis’ jokes…oh my LMAO.

  212. Tami December 1, 2010

    @TheRealNicky
    You need some f****** help!!!!I swear you are just sick to even EVER mention Beyonce and Rihanna in the same sentence.That’s like saying MJ and Usher.Lol no!

    @TheFuck
    Yes Beyonce is taking her time but nah she’ll only get better and better! As far as Taylor, EXACTLY it’ll be Taylor who soon!?Well maybe not the teens and kiddies seem to be buying her stuff.Lol and I agree Drake is overrated and s***. Lol

  213. Drew December 1, 2010

    Damn Nicki should release “Blazin’ “as a single next. I actually liked Pink Sunday a lot…I don’t know how that isn’t rap to people. That b**** is hard!!! And smart as hell.

  214. The F*** December 1, 2010

    @RIHANNAFOREVER

    First of all I’ve know about Nicki since 2006 so you CAN’T school me on her sweetie.

    Second of all, Nicki proved she wasn’t BUILT for this rap s*** when she backtracked from “Roman’s Revenge”. This is against hip hop rule #1. You can do that in country music, pop music, dance music world, but not in the rap world.

    Hip Hop comes from the streets so it is street rules. And she broke one right off top.

    REAL RAP S*** is Jean Grae, Eternia, Ray Digga, Lauryn Hill, Tiye Phoenix. Learn what REAL s*** sounds like first before you try to speak on it.

    STAY IN YA LANE , the pop music lane.

    Matter of fact stay in ya room before the guards come and put your straight-jacket back on for obsessing over POP stars Rihanna.

  215. RihannaForever December 1, 2010

    @TheFuck
    Um…I’ve known about Nicki for just as long. I also understand what you mean about the rap world, but I think she’ll get people back on her side now that’s releasing “Moment 4 LIfe”. I just don’t know why the rap community doesn’t let their artists EXPERIMENT like Nicki has been doing.

    Also, Lauryn Hill sang just as much as Nicki does, so that’s crazy to me that Nicki is a sellout. Lastly, you must have me mistaken for @TheRealNicky. I don’t obsess over Ri. I love her to death, but I’m not mental and I like Nicki and a lot of other rap artists a lot. The Miseducation is one of my absolute favorite records to date.

  216. Badd December 1, 2010

    @ The F***:
    EXACTLYYYYYYYYYY !
    Nicki is NOT a rapper !!
    She was the closest to it in her mixtape days.
    When ppl actually liked her.
    But now she’s just a wannabe.
    She’s a pop artist posing to be to be a rapper.

  217. RihannaForever December 1, 2010

    @Badd
    No, it’s called experimentation. Why doesn’t ANYONE get that?

  218. lala December 1, 2010

    Yeeze always sell the best, even if mf’s don’t like him. I’m happy for Ne-yo too. Speaking of the real queen, u see it now. All that hype to get album sales, I knew she was not going to be all that F*** sicki garbage.

    Rihanna?…..Yawns

  219. RihannaForever December 1, 2010

    @Badd
    And did you want Nicki to drop a hardcore rap album for her debut? She’s featured on pop songs and has pop followers and she delivered a record which caters to her rap, urban/R&B, and pop fans. Hence the large sales.

    IT’S CALLED BUSINESS.

  220. RihannaForever December 1, 2010

    @LaLa
    Because 370k first week is bad? It’s about longevity, genius.

    Nicki Minaj is getting too pop for me anyway but I pick her over Lil Kim wierd ass anyday. Lol but yeah I need some hardcore s*** from Nicki not this bubble gum Hehehehe rap s*** she is giving on Pink Friday.Her mixtapes used to be fire..What went wrong Nicki!?Like ever since evveryone jumped on her d*** it’s just like it’s gone to her head.Lol!

  223. LET’z GO December 1, 2010

    okay people.! lets states some facts here….
    1. nicki minaj had qreat first week sales with 371K.! not to mention her album leaked a week before release.!
    2. back in tha day, you didnt have to worry about leaks & shxt because they didnt really have all this diqital shxt like they do now.! so if lil kim shxt didn’t leak & only sold 78K first week, her shxt was a disappoinment requardinq all tha buzz around her (as you people try to put out thatz what helped nicki).!
    3. they said nicki sold like 80K in diqital sales which is still 270K more than kim sold so diqital dont even fxccinq matter.
    3. not sayinq she will, but i feel nicki minaj will have lonqevity because she’z able to reinvent herself.! such as missy elliot who is tha most successful female rapper ever.!

    i pointed out those thinqs because i hate to see people not qive respect where it is due.! nicki minaj qrinded to qet where she is & the situation she is cominq up in (beinq a female rapper) is pretty qot damn hard & she is doinq pretty qood at it.! no disrespect to kim, but she need to release a album & then she can yapp.! until then, KILL THE EXTRA NOISE.

    now with tha rihanna, beyonce, katy, lady qaqa, ETC situation…. i really don’t qive a fxcc cause they all makinq money while we on here arquinq about who tha best at what & why they aint did this & that.! its so funny how other artist name alwayz qet thrown into a post not dealinq with them at all (beyonce, lady qaqa, britney) .! i see it everytime & it really is funny.! but tha main thinq im sayinq is, qive respect where it is do.! CONGRATz NICKI, KANYYE, TAYLOR, RIHANNA, NEYO, & whoever else this bloq is about.! ya’ll deserve it.!

  224. Tami December 1, 2010

    But you know what even though her mixtapes were better then her album, I still respect this gal for her DEBUT sales. So not hate.But she’s just too damn pop for me.Now adays rappers be going pop and s***!Smh! Where the true rappers!

  225. lala December 1, 2010

    @ Rihannaforever
    I’ve very intelligent, u don’t know s*** about me so f*** u. Rihanna & Sicki aren’t appealing to me & I choose to listen to REAL music b****. U think u a genius but ur a jackass. Lil Kim might of did some things but the b**** made REAL s*** to have mf’s listen to even til now. Not a Wannabe victim & a no talented b**** who talks s*** & try to climb the ladder. So STFU!!!

  226. Go Away December 1, 2010

    Ya”ll talking about Kim “Hardcore” album, that s*** took 5 years to sell 2 million and 14 years later her sales still at 2 million, lol Kim at a stand still…. mannequin. Nicki will sell 2 million before the end of 2011. Not to mention her 1st week sold more than Kim last album all together. Why you mad 4?

  227. RihannaForever December 1, 2010

    @GoAway @Let’z Go
    Exactly.

    @Lala
    You’re so mature. Way to take my opinion from me and making me laugh.

  228. Tami December 1, 2010

    Lil Kim is wack as s***!Lol like I said Nicki Minaj all day but Nicki is letting all this s*** go to her head now and forreal damn this Nicki/Kim beef is dumb as s***.Honestly and if Nicki doesn’t watch it her words will come back to f****** haunt her.Lol!That’s all I’m saying!Karma is a b****!

  229. Tami December 1, 2010

    But if Nicki Minaj is still hot as she is in about 5 years, that I’ll be happy for her.But honestly I do not see it. I hope she proves me wrong, but I just see this as a phase and people will get over her….Pretty soon it will be another chick and what is she gonna call herself a “Bratz” or s***. Lol then we gonna have our youth all corupted and s***.Smh but anyway honestly, if Nicki delievers another hot album then you know what bigs up to her but her sound is just boring after awhile and the same and sometimes this b**** don’t even be making sense.Like random sounds and s*** but she still makes it hot can’t even front Lol

  230. lala December 1, 2010

    first of all I dont STAN for no one..

    second, this is NOT a post about jazmine sullivan…when her post come up feel free to talk s***..she can sell 10 albums, the broad is still gonna be more talented them half these broads..so feel free to HATE..NEXTTTTTTTTT

    third..My comment about pon the forehead but have hit a nerve, because I see her usual stalkers, I mean STans trying to come at me side ways..

    last time I checked Gaga, beybey doesnt have an album out, so whats the point of bringing up their name to compare them?

  232. lala December 1, 2010

    Jazmine Sullivan’s album is better than Loud anyway!

  233. Tami December 1, 2010

    And how many alter egos does Nicki Minaj have?????????????Like a new one everyday. Jasmine is talented than all those “pop stars” but she is never on the charts :/ Which sucks she is SO TALENTED. I guess they needa work on her image………………………………

  234. Rated Xxx(aka rated x) December 1, 2010

    and how the hell am I bashing rihanna?

    by saying taylor swift sold more than her ..really thats bashing?

    by stating facts, gee how sensitive are u stans…

    I mean its been 5 years, this broad still doesnt have a number 1 album?

    5 yrs she still cant pass 500k mark?

    5 years it still takes her forever to go platinum, let see people less popular than her go platinum in matter of weeks, this broad takes months..

    I guess she has 9 number 1s to brag about in 10 yrs..when the broad is selling mangos in barbados….

  235. RihannaForever December 1, 2010

    @RatedXXX
    I didn’t bring up their names and I’m a very sane stan; refer to previous posts.

    @LaLa
    I’m actually in my mid-twenties and when have I EVER talked about Rihanna like I knew her?

  236. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare December 1, 2010

    First of all, congratulations to Kanye, Nicki, and Ne-Yo for doing their thing- especially Kanye because MBDTF is a GREAT album! His critical acclaim is much deserved.

    Nicki. I like her. i like her a lot. But Pink Friday is simply an average album. I was so disappointed with this album because I feel that thought that she had to dumb down (that is, pop-up) her album in order for her to be successful. The fact of the matter is she could have produced a critically acclaimed album that she is VERY CAPABLE of producing, while still being a mainstream success. Since we are talking about Lauryn Hill, this is precisely what she did. “Miseducation” went on to sale 18 million copies worldwide (8 million is the US), ultimately, because she REFUSED to compromise her work not BECAUSE she compromised it. Nicki has chosen to take a different path and that is certainly her choice; it is HER career. However, one average album does not a “Queen of Hip Hop” make- sorry. I will continue to follow Nicki because she is truly dope.

    @The F***- I’m SO feeling you right now. 🙂

    Finally, on “The Queen of Pop.” As long as Madonna Louise Ciccone has breath in her body, she will be THE Queen of Pop. Now, the Gaga and Britney stans can continue to battle on that front if they like, but there is no new crowning possible. Forget it. I like Britney and Gaga both, but neither are any where CLOSE to Madonna. They are not even icons yet….they are just popular. Big difference.

    @LaLa
    Uh, no I don’t. I don’t care if people don’t like Rihanna. One example is that I communicate quite a bit with TrueBlue and they don’t like Rihanna a lot. It’s people that make stuff up about Rihanna that I set straight. If you make ANYTHING up or talk about RUMORS, I’ll snatch your wig 🙂

Blazin with Kanye, Moment for life with drake, shitted on em, romans revenge… the whole cd is rap besides save me. Lauryn sang half of Miseducation and u calling it real rap s*** the rest of those broads aint even making noise. Thats not all hip hop is, u dumass. Kanye did Runaway and hes singing so shut da the hell up. What the f*** more u ungrateful bastards want. You dont even know.

    Tired of these internet nerds thinking they have the formula for what “real rap is” Have a f***** seat.

    BEYONCE IS THE MOST POPULAR BLACK ARTIST FOR THE MOMENT AND NO ONCE CAN DENY AFTER BEYONCE COMES RIHANNA SO EITHER EXCEPT THE FACTS OR SHUT THE F*** UP!

    RIHANNA HAS PROVEN THAT SHE IS A INTERNATIONAL ARTIST TIME AND TIME AGAIN EVEN BEYONCE HAS ADMITTED THAT SHE IS NOT DOING AS WELL INTERNATIONAL AS BRITNEY OR RIHANNA AND (IASF) WAS SUPPOSE TO BE HER CROSS OVER ALBUM.

    RIHANNA’S ALBUMS STAYS ON THE BILLBOARD 200 CHART FOR MONTHS LETS SEE WHERE ALL THESE OTHER ARTISTS FALL IN A FEW MONTHS TIMES.

    STOP ILLEGALLY DOWNLOADING ALBUMS AND GO OUT AND SUPPORT THE DAMN ARTISTS THATS WHAT THE WHITE ARTISTS HAVE OVER THE BLACK ONES THEIR FANS ACTUALLY SUPPORT THEM 100% THAT DOESN’T MEAN THEIR MUSIC IS BETTER THAN THE BLACK ARTISTS.

  247. Diane December 1, 2010

    Beyonce rocks! She gave people six months of absence and still no one reigned supreme. Beyonce is not real R&B, Nicki is not real rap, Rihanna is not real carribean music. FAKE S*** ROCKS!!!!!!!!

  248. cool yea December 1, 2010

    “RIHANNA HAS PROVEN THAT SHE IS A INTERNATIONAL ARTIST TIME AND TIME AGAIN EVEN BEYONCE HAS ADMITTED THAT SHE IS NOT DOING AS WELL INTERNATIONAL AS BRITNEY OR RIHANNA”

    Wtf???? How can you say that when Rated R only managed to sell 3 million WW and IASF sold 7 million?! When Circus sold 4 million WW?! You make no sense Lol

  249. Antonio December 1, 2010

    Well back in 1996, a artist didn’t need their album to debut at #1 for it to be a hit, Hard Core only peaked at #11 and ended up selling nearly 2.5 million copies and now regarded as one of the best albums of the 90’s as well a classic album in hip-hop. Aaliyah’s One in a Million sold nearly 9 million copies worldwide and only peaked at #18, The Boy is Mine by Monica peaked at #8 and sold around 8.5 million worldwide. So back in the 90’s it wasn’t a requirement to have a #1 album, in today’s industry, if you don’t a #1 album or least a top 5 album, your considered unsuccessful. I will give Nicki her props for selling 375,000 because she now has the 2nd best first week sales for a female rapper behind Lauryn Hill who sold 425,000 and her album ended up selling 20 million worldwide and is regarded as one of the greatest albums of all time. I’m not hating on Nicki Minaj but the shade that was threw at Lil’ Kim was not needed and I highly doubt that Pink Friday will sell more than 2 million copies, I see that album selling around 1.25 million, look at Drake, his album was expected to sell in the range of 2 – 3 million and it’s only sold around 1.2 million and around 1.6 million worldwide

  250. cool yea December 1, 2010

    And yea Britney has a total of 32 million albums sold in comparison to Beyonce’s 23 million (solo) but Britney has TWICE as many albums released over Bey sooooo O_o

  251. Tami December 1, 2010

    Nicki sold more than Lil Kim’s debut because back in the day CD’s were $16.99 – $18.99. Nicki’s album was on sale on Amazon for $4.99 and probably $9.99 in stores, please guys.

  252. Drew December 1, 2010

    Even after all the drama with Kanye West, he still managed to stay on top! Nicki should’ve known that she would not have a chance up against Mr. West. I’m surprised that Ne Yo’s album did as well as it did, because his singles haven’t been that great. I was disappointed that Lloyd Banks sold under 50,000 his first week too.

  253. Mr. T December 1, 2010

    So Nicky releases an album we she doesn’t talk about s**, doesn’t sell s**, and 80% of the songs are positive/self evaluating/love songs….and its trash

    Hardcore is full of sexual content, and its classic hip hop for women rappers???…smh

    Classic is Miseducation….. Hardcore had some dope lyrics, and cool tracks, but classic…really??? B**** talkin bout riding and suckin d*** and drugs. And thats classic. SMDH.

    I can see why ppl wouldn’t like Nicky album, but it has substance. No I wouldnt call it classic, but no one thought her first album would be, but its a pretty good album.

    Yall crazy as hell if yall Nicky is goin anywhere soon.

  254. Mr. T December 1, 2010

    HELL NAW….YEAH IN THE 90’S THERE WASN’T AS MUCH PROMO….BUT YOU ALSO DIDN’T

    HAVE PPL DOWNLOADING MUSIC….SO SAVE THOSE THEORY. IT’S MUCH HARDER FOR

    ARTISTS TO SELL MILLIONS UPON MILLIONS OF RECORDS UNLESS THEY TARGET

    AUDIENCE/ FAN BASE ARE COUNTRY MUSIC LOVER, CHILDREN, OLDER WHITE

    PEOPLE….THESE PPL USUALLY DON’T DOWNLOAD MUSIC….WELL IT AT LEAST APPEARS THAT WAY

  255. AtIslander December 1, 2010

    Not the biggest rap/hip hop fan, have liked some in the past…nowadays I began to find it boring. However Minaj has injected some life into this game for me. I bought Pink Friday, listened to it twice over, back to back, what surprised me was that she can really sing, what surprised me was how broad the CD was, R/B, pop and rap..and I can get why true hip hop and rap fans are disappointed, when Minaj goes hard, it’s worth it, and I could see why some feel she dumbed it down.
    BUT, to the people who think she won’t be around, hell no, this woman is talented, gifted, really smart, and writes her own, so she gon BE around. I think her next album will be her classic rap/hip hop and will appease die hard rap fans. That’s why Swift is still around, not the best singer, but she writes her own stuff. She gon be around too, Like RiRi, congrats to her, congrats to Kanye, am not a big fan of his, but hey, he works hard.
    I hope Nicki does not keep up any back and forth with Lil Kim, sure she copied some stuff, but they are very different, IMHO. Don’t understand the hating on Nicki, Kim had her time. Kim should be happy for Da Dun Dun. Can’t wait for her next material.

  256. B December 1, 2010

    My fellow blacks are IDIOTS. Can you morons for once STOP tearing each other down? As you can, Taylor Swift who lacks the talent of Kanye, Nicki and Rihanna continues to sell huge #’s. Know why?? Bc white people support each other. Listen, there’s enough room for everyone to be successful but instead of bashing Nicki, Rihanna etc why not show support to all of them so they can achieve the same success. Eminem (who’s great) sold HUGE #’s in his 1st week but we can’t get KANYE there?? We gotta do better.

  257. AtIslander December 1, 2010

    I forgot to say with all this, I actually enjoy Pink Friday, can’t even figure out which one is my favorite track. I see many cuts making the charts and I hope she does some more videos as well. I like the personas, like her images, costumes, wigs, all of it. she makes a performance interesting, and worth the time. I think it’s the same reason that the blancas like and buy Gaga so please, no hating on Nicki M.

  258. AtIslander December 1, 2010

    Well B, unfortunately, there are still more blancas than negras in this country, and more of them support Em, Gaga, Taylor, Carrie, etc. That’s why I went out and got Whitney, Fantasia, and now Nicki. I know, i pick and choose who, but I can’t buy them all and I don’t copy, I buy. I think if Wayne were not inside, Pink Friday may have been more raw, but we will see. and yes, don’t know why we have to diss another, like many have pointed out, Gaga outright copied Madonna, heard Madonna say anything, hell no. But Kim, Khia etc have to dump on Nicki, instead of embracing her.

  261. Kyle December 1, 2010

    RIHANNA IS SIMPLY THE BIGGEST POP STAR AND SHES ONLY 22

  262. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare December 1, 2010

    @ATISLANDER, I really appreciate your comments. You bought Whitney, Fantasia, and Nicki. I bought Kanye, Janelle Monae, and will be buying Keyshia Cole. You’re right, we can’t buy them all but the key word is that we “bought” them.

    In terms of Madonna and Gaga, I’ve thought about that point, too. The white girls just don’t do that–they simply let the fans do that work for them. lol! Plus, Madonna is SO LEGENDARY that any verbal attempt by Gaga to discount that legacy would be ridiculous.

  263. RihannaForever December 1, 2010

    @AtisLander
    So true! I agree. I think that Nicki will go harder in the future but it was intelligent for Pink Friday to have a pop/R&B side to it because she’s earned those fans through her features.

    Nicki will be around for a while. I really do believe that she’s miles more than a gimmick.

  264. Rightonmama! December 1, 2010

    @RihannaForever I totaaly was with you on the Missy Elliott thing! Don’t mess around & let Nicki & her do a track… It’s a wrap! I feel like she can bring out something in Nicki that no one can. The creativity would totally mesh.

    Congrats to all the people on the Billboard! Atleast they are going after their dreams.
    I’m routing 4 Nicki. As a fellow singer/ rapper I feel like if she wins we all win. She’s re-openning doors 4 the ladies & I’m excited 2 see what’s next. Congrats boo & many more 2 come!

  265. RihannaForever December 1, 2010

    @RightOnMama!
    Exactly. Also, one of my favorite things about Nicki is that she’s said that she wants more female rappers to come out as opposed to being the only one.

    Nicki + Missy would equal an amazing track.

  267. CuteCC December 1, 2010

    Well ermmmm I’m kind of taken back at some of these comments and kind of forgot what the original post was about as I thought I had dropped into a hate post (not sure who the hate was aimed at – mainkly Rihanna to be fair)
    I mean let’s first as a mainly urban audience commend our artists on achieving anything in this day and age where illegal music is so accesible its so easy for numbers to convey that an artist is not popular when that is so far from the truth. Rihanna has grown musically so much with this album and for someone who just released an album a year ago her sales are really quite impressive please note they are also her best in her whole career. Say what you want about her but shes doing well (she held number one spot in the Uk for nine weeks or so with umbrellla Kudos for that alone !!!) Then we have Kanye who despite the fact of facing public scrutiny for the Taylorgate has still managed to make an impression on the charts and last but by no means Nicki Minaj whos following is mostly youths who are facing unemployment and poverty who would by far prefer to go and download the album ( Dont get me wrong thats not all her fans) has managed to sell
    300k+ even if they were all at 4.99 that would still be 1.5 million !!!

    So come on guys instead of getting t each other and hationg and fighting lets get together and celebrate the good efforts and results of our fellow people !!

    omg people are sooo funny! why are yall on here arguin about album sales between artists? Knowing damn good and well half yall is online downloadin the music for free!

  269. Team Minaj December 1, 2010

    Congatz to Kanye and Nicki Minaj…No matter how you look at it 371k in the first week is a big accomplishment she is only second to lauryn hill (423k) for biggest first week debut by a female rapper and her album leaked a week before it was realesed lil kim fans are really in denial if they think kim can get those numbers in a week kims been in the game for ten years now and the only reason we are even talking about her is because of nicki minaj…The New Queen of Hip-Hop proclaimed by rolling stone magzine but seriously be sure to tune into Nicki Minaj on vh1 divas “save the toops” this friday and go get Pink Friday in stores now…and pick up kims new album “Has Been” in a 7eleven near you.

  270. Gilberto December 1, 2010

    Loud is a flop. I am sure Def Jam will re-release it several times ’til the middle of next year and they’ll make Rihanna drop a new (flop) album in the end of that same year.

  271. ChEeRfUl CyNiC XD December 1, 2010

    how can u possibly compare a 96 album sales 2 now look at how technology has evolved

  272. Yellow Gorrilah December 1, 2010

    People need to stop hating on rihanna it’s not healthy

    This is one of the main reason black people dont go a nywhere in life because they hate on EACH other only wont sucess for themselfs or for one certain person..Let beyonce do her thing let rihanna do her thing

    we should all be glad that we even see our people on top of the charts but nooo all we do is moan and ask why..

    why do you think people like taylor swift and susun boyl are slayying all our faves think about it..

    & Rihanan will outsell nicki by next year nobody is checking for nicki outside the USA why do people only care about usa sales when you can make more money with WW sales =/

    And next year BRITNEY WILL SLAYYYY all those h*** you just named im sorry Britney is a LEGEND! Beyonce and Gaga are NOT! get over it but beyonce is neraly there but britney slayed beyonce (with ONE album)

  273. Tee December 1, 2010

    Rihanna stans do you realize Rihanna sold more in the US than she did overseas? 206,000 US/200,000? You guys act like Rihanna is slaying overseas, but her numbers say different, and for your information as of 30 Sept 2010 Rated “R” has sold 2.5 million WW, and this is coming from media Traffic which track WW sales, so stop with the delusion that she is slaying everyone in album sales because she is not.

    Anyway congrats to Kanye, Nicki, Taylor, Rihanna, etc, on the album sales. Especially Nicki. Those are great numbers for a debut.

  274. Tee December 1, 2010

    I just reread the article, that is so wrong for them to point out Rihanna’s drop in sales. I think selling 133.000 in the second week is still good. I don’t seeing going platinum in a month though, maybe in about three months, that’s still good. She will probably sell a million WW in a month though.

  275. Jay Scorpio December 1, 2010

    LMBAO… DEAD @COOL YEA SAYING BRITNEY SOLD 32MIL WHERE THE F*** HAVE U BEEN LIVING KIDD??!! SPEARS 1ST 2 ALBUMS HAVE SOLD OVER 50MIL AND ALL HER ALBUMS COMBINED HAS SOLD OVER 100MIL MAKING HER ONE OF THE BEST SELLING FEMALE ARTISTS OF ALL TIME…

    WHERE DO U GET UR FACTS??!!! RUMOR MILL??!!

  276. never lying—-truth teller December 1, 2010

    the argument here is pitiful and childish, and for all the names that was mention in the post two of which was obvious that the post was about them mainly i.e. kanye and nickki, i see everyone else forgot about them and start bashing one person, namely rihanna, this is sad and pathetic, just remember that When you judge someone, you don’t define them, you define yourself….i feel it time yall give the girl (rihanna) a damn break…cause if she is a flop, irrelevant, yall sure keep her entertained….so what does that make u guys..smart and brilliant ..smh

    Y’ALL DON’T FORGET TO WATCH BRANDY AND RAY-J A FAMILY BUSINESS SEASON 2 PREMIERES THIS SUNDAY NIGHT ON VH1 @ 10PM

    FOLLOW BRANDY ON TWITTER GUYS…..YAYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  281. I’m A Billy Goat December 1, 2010

    Nicki did well! It’s funny that a newbie dropping her 1st CD ran all over Rihanna’s 5th CD 1st week in sells….LOL! I guess that victim card is fading fast.

    Kanye did well although his CD is not that good to me. I am mad that ppl are still on that TS nonsense! Boring him at the Macy’s TG Parade was crazy.

    I’m shocked at Ne-Yo’s numbers. He has been on every major show for the longest time. I am amazed that he only did 117k?

  282. I’m A Billy Goat December 1, 2010

    Yes, Nicki Minaj sold a good amount but you cannot compare the marketing schemes of today to the true hussle of the rappers from the past. Yestday’s artists had to have talent. They couldn’t just use s** or some extenal event to sell a CD.

    Also some consideration must be given to the favored status the music industry gives its artsists with 360 record deals. Nicki has stepped into a great position. She’s has nothing on Lil Kim however!

    UP-COMES Nicki Minaj; DOWN-GOES Rihanna…!!

    And (as I’ve been saying), “the stage isn’t big-enough, not for 4: Beyonce, Gaga, Nicki and Rihanna”…someone MUST leave; exit, stage right, soon-never-to-be-seen, nor-ever-again-to-be-heard-from, one Robyn Rihanna Fenty
    ********

    LOL yes! And that Chris Brown hit me crap is falling well off! Her GQ interview has even the ppl who initially supported her now running her the f*** over! Oh well, it was nice while it lasted RiRi!

    *baa, I’m gonna have to start sell my “youwho” on the nearest corner!….baa

  284. Beyoncé: The Queen of Pop & Soul December 2, 2010

    @RihannaForever…

    You are a breath of fresh air in here. You can articulate your points of view intelligently, and you’re right: Ri will do Plat like she always does. And that’s okay.

    I will speak for myself and say that I think part of the “flopping” talk is because of what she did GGGB. I thought that the next era, would be her “B’day era” where her album would be so anticipated that she would do big #s the first week and be consistent with her GGGB sales.

    It didn’t happen. So to me, she’s not there as a major artist YET. Not a bad career, by any means, but not a major artist. At least not the kind of that Rihanna stans want her to be. Can she be? She’s young enough, but she would have to improve some things. The one thing that disappointed me is that last era, it seems she had more imput on her work but this era she didn’t and that’s regression. The sales issues come secondary to THAT. Now this is just my opinion and I know a lot of Rihanna fans would not like what I am saying but I think you’re mature enough to handle what I am saying.

  285. RihannaForever December 2, 2010

    @Beyonce: Queen of Pop and Soul
    Thanks. It’s difficult to maintain my sanity at times on this site, however, because some people who comment are lunatics…

    Anyways, I do agree. The debate over whether Rihanna is a major artist is highly debatable. I, personally, feel that she is but there is always room for improvement. Her sales (first week) could improve, but I’m only worried that she stays consistent with sales. As for her input, I agree that it’s odd that Loud has way less Rihanna input than Rated R, but I feel that her bigger issue is live performance.

    However, that seems to be improving amazingly.

  286. Beyoncé: The Queen of Pop & Soul December 2, 2010

    @Yellow Gorillah

    I don’t know about that one: And next year BRITNEY WILL SLAYYYY all those h*** you just named im sorry Britney is a LEGEND! Beyonce and Gaga are NOT! get over it but beyonce is neraly there but britney slayed beyonce (with ONE album)

    If this was 1999-2002, then yeah I would agree. But since 2003, Bey has been outselling her WW and the US. Now of course, Britney does move units still and does beacoup touring $$$$. However, there IS a reason why Beyoncé is the Billboard Female Artist of the Decade.

    They are both part of the Mt Rushmore of Artists(Gaga, and Alicia with them) and 3 out of the 4 are legit legends(Don’t Forget Alicia is the Billboard R&B Artist of the Decade). You can have more than one legend in a generation, you know? Like for example: Prince, MJ and Luther all from the same generation, all legends.

  287. Beyoncé: The Queen of Pop & Soul December 2, 2010

    @RihannaForever

    She has gotten better as a performer and that’s the next level for her to go, because all of the major mainstream artists/entertainers are great touring acts. Even when they stop selling, that they can just tour and that keeps their longevity. Look at Madonna.

    And that can open up door for possibly other things that would ensure longevity apart from recording. I won’t say that I am a fan(I do LOVE Russian Roulette, SOS and DSTM though), but I do root for her in the context that there aren’t a lot of true black female stars(Beyonce and Alicia are the only real ones 30 and under) out there and she’s *RIGHT THERE*.

    She’s bigger than say, Ciara, Ameriie, Keri and etc, but there is another level for her to go and I would love to see her go the extra mile to do it. Work on her vocals more(she’s gotten better there too but she does get lazy sometimes especially with her pitch accuracy), and work on her confidence so that her ability to work the stage shows through

  288. RihannaForever December 2, 2010

    @Beyonce: Queen of Pop and Soul
    Exactly! Rihanna is so close to being one of the really successful pop stars but it hasn’t happened yet. Once she improves her vocals and brings more of a presence to the stage, all will be great.

  289. TC ;D December 2, 2010
