Why Can’t Rihanna Score A #1 Album?

Published: Saturday 26th Nov 2011 by David

 

Days ago, fans of Pop belle Rihanna received an open handed slap to the face when it emerged that the singer’s latest album ‘Talk That Talk‘ is to debut with less than stellar first week sales.

Yes, quite unfortunately,  this means that for the sixth consecutive time she will fail to nab a #1 album on the Billboard 200 ,even with the success of the project’s lead single ‘We Found Love‘.

 

Now That Grape Juice is answering the question Island Def Jam will be sure to be asking this week.

Why is it so difficult for Rihanna to nab a #1 album?

 

 

Contrary to popular belief , the problem with Rihanna’s ‘music’ is not her lack of discernible talent or  that she shows no sign of wanting to further her skill as a performer, but rather the fact that when it comes down to it- she just isn’t that convincing.

Not even to her own fans.

For unlike Lady GaGa, Beyonce and dare we say Britney Spears– Fenty  has failed to build up the good faith an artist like her needs to convince people to buy whatever  she is selling, regardless of what it looks or  sounds like.

The kind of good faith that only comes when your fans truly believe in your cause.

The good faith that helps Adele move 200,000 copies of ‘21‘ each week and Drake‘s ‘Take Care’ debut with sales of almost 700,000 units.

More interested in churning out hits than molding her into a performer worthy of the artificially induced  ‘Icon’ status she enjoys , her team have failed to convince anyone -other than her core fan base- that a Rihanna album is  truly worth buying.

Because, while the big budget videos, ever changing aesthetics and laizzez faire personality will always do the trick as far as singles are concerned, her LP’s  are much much like a drunken one night stand.

Cheap, sexy but embarrassingly forgettable .

By no means are we saying that quality material will ensure commercial success (see Ashanti‘s ‘The Declaration‘ and Brandy‘s ‘Human‘).

However, it is becoming increasingly apparent that Rihanna’s inability to convince the world that she has an authentic creative agenda is the reason so many will buy her $1 singles but not the $10 albums those singles come from.

 

So sad.

Billed as an international megastar but can’t even score a #1 album in her domestic market.

    rihanna could score #1 and she will, just watch next week!!!!!!!!!!

  3. thetruth November 23, 2011

    Yes yes and yes. This tramp has no discernable talent…like really. I think her career would have pretty much been over if she didn’t get battered.

    “rihanna could score #1 and she will, just watch next week!!”

    Bruce, that’ll happen ONLY if Def Jam(Rihanna) AGAIN buys her CD. You DO remember she’s in a “360-Contract”, right? And once Nicki Minaj begins to tour “The World”, we’ll see Rihanna/Brand-Rihanna then become forced into irrelevance and obscurity. Where she belongs!

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT..!!

      @Grape any time you have to inject NEGATIVITY
      into the articles written and posted on Rihanna tells a great story of a girl from very Humble beginnings and made it big
      and she did it in the United states where there are many
      American girls who have did it good before her, but since shes a Black from the Islands who has clearly made it, to the haters there’s no reason to treat RIHANNA nice when yo asses are bitter, pressed, and stressed over her much success THEREFORE it is easier to call RIHANNA ho, s***, untalented, s**** dah, dah dah from now on to make yo monkey asses feel good. The only thing is many ill still support Rihanna because Rihanna has always been treated like the Under dog ever since She out lasted Her 15 minutes. Its okay for Ke$ha, Kelly, eve, monica, gaga, britney, jojo, rita, chris, trez, and countless others tto do well but the haters FIXATION is on the “Caribbean”
      and if all goes well Rihanna will keep right on loosing some and winning some and you can keep right on Eating Yo Hearts Out
      Sooooo from here on i will try not to judge or ride the haters backs to hard because after all i know that they have to have Rihanna to try and feed off of her and do Rihanna love all of you inspite of your SHITTY slander and hate toward her so keep the Hateration parties going
      on because Rihanna knows how to serves up these Hate parties and Rihanna Hate parties keeps rocking till the wheels fall off. IMO GRAPE EVEN IF YOU POST A ARTICLE ON rihanna AND EVERY word is positive THE HATERS WILL STILL TRY TO TEAR, BEAT AND BASH
      Rihanna’s head off because the dye has been casted
      and there’s nothing Rihanna’s haters would rather do then talk me and the Navy down because we see things different from what they see, amazing.In the end nobody wins when they or trying to DOGGGGGG another and we all know that as long as any of the artists keep working as hard as they can there’s no stopping any of them not even Rih, Rih!

  6. KD November 23, 2011

    Let’s not get too ahead of ourselves…after all that c*** is currently #1 on iTunes and with Black Friday and the inevitable $3.49 discounts coming she may just surprise us all.

    WHY THE F*** IS THIS SITE SO OBSSESSED WITH RIHANNA & HER SALES ACCOMPLISHMENTS???????

    BY ALL MEANS, I HAVE NO FAVOUR TOWARDS RIHANNA AS AN “ALBUMS” ARTIST, BECAUSE EVERYBODY KNOWS SHE ISN’T – BUT DAMN, AS A FELLOW BLACK PERSON WITH A, SOMEWHAT, SUSTAINABLE CAREER AND THE HUGE WORLDWIDE SUCCESS SHE HAS ACHIEVED:

    I RESPECT HER!!!

    AND IS THAT ALL THIS SITE HAS BECOME???

    THE SAME THING IS DONE ON FACEBOOK, TWITTER ETC… – CONSTANTLY BITCHING ABOUT RIHANNA, RIHANNNA, RIHANNA…….
    AND THE ALBUM HAS BEEN OUT FOR ONLY TWO DAYS AND A HALF – THE FINAL SALES HAVEN’T EVEN BEEN COUNTED…….

    #SHUT THE F*** UP ALREADY#

    @SAM & THAT “PSYCHOLOGICALLY TORTURED” JUICE!!!

  10. Matthew Charlery-Smith November 23, 2011

    I think Rihanna does not give herself enough time to “grow” as an artist. Her music is always current and her videos inventive but it almost seems as if you’re buying into Rihannas long stream of music as opposed to a whole package that you can relate to. MJ’s “Bad” was an era, “Dangerous” was an era. Both of these saw MJ branch into extended lengths of tours, great music videos, charity launches and the like,, both were full of images and themes. Beyonce has also had significant themes that haven’t been rushed or cheaply done and people have been able to gradually won round to getting it. ie. B’day, Creole and Glamour, Sasha Fierce, maturity, relationships and edge, 4 life, fun and throwback music. Rihanna’s career is on speed.

    The funny thing is that I never got into Rihanna until this Loud era, and it was a period I would have loved to see continued. The colours, the overall “loudness” of it was very attractive and it should have made a statement about her, something to look back on. Instead it was like “Ok, one year’s up let get more sales and keep this wheel turnin'”.

    Because there is no hype about her return there’s no rush to get her music. When Michael Jackson returned people went crazy, there was hype, there was suspense because it was a case of “What will he bring this time” and as such he never failed to impress nor get a number 1.

    Rihanna needs to slow down – majorly. I’m not excited about this album, the album cover is off-putting and unattractive and the title sounds like it was made up in some attempt at creativity…but’s unconvincing.

  11. Johnny November 23, 2011

    And a #1 is the ONLY benchmark for success? #1 is highly based on whoever else is out on that week (or around that time). Rihanna is very successful, and I’m sure Def Jam will not be wondering whether she’s worth the money they spend on her. Your infactuation with Rihanna is getting REALLY old TGJ.

  12. jenn November 23, 2011

    Shut the F*** UP already!

  13. JJFAN1814 November 23, 2011

    Why can’t Beyonce get a #1 single on the BB Hot 100?

    Why can’t Kelly Rowland have success outside of a girl group?

    Rihanna is successful with or without a #1 album. She’s an international superstar that ends up selling millions regardless of her first week domestic sales. She sells out venues WITHOUT a #1 album.

    Stay the f*** off of Rihanna’s nuts, s*** man, it’s getting old real quick! tired out!!!

  14. anthony freeman November 23, 2011

    she cant score 2 #1 bc of the diff sounds on the album she cant stick 2 one genre look back @ all her music

  15. DONT TRY IT B**** November 23, 2011

    THIS SITE IS STARTING TO BECOME A JOKE, WE GET IT SAM, ITS NOT FUNNY ANYMORE ( IT NEVER WAS)
    With that being said, I believe one of these days she will score a #1 album, with each release her fan base is increasing, its bound to happen. I don’t even like Rihanna like that but your constant shade and hating is temptig me to take my ass to Best Buy and purchase Talk that Talk so she CAN get a #1 album and you can STFU!

  16. pop royalty ( RUDE BOY) November 23, 2011

    IS BRITNEY SPEARS CONVINCING ?! IN 2011 ?!!

    IS THAT A JOKE ?!

    anyhow , rihanna will sell as usual !

    look what LOUD did last year and tell me if that wasn’t convincing !

    and still no f**** will be given about #1 albums , I KNOW FOR YOUit is like an honor to have a #1 in US , BUT I HAVE TO REMIND YO ASS THAT basic b****** like T-pain can get one there , will that make me like him or respect him ?!

    no SIR ! IT WON’T !

    it depends on the time of release and the competition and somewhat ” the material/content” of the album PLUS THE PROMO !!

    IT IS ENOUGH THAT SHE’S NOT AFRAID TO RELEASE IT AGAINST MJ AND MJB !!
    she didn’t wait till the competition go DOWN like some other artist(S) DO !!

    in 2011 :
    #1 albums aren’t s*** and nods aren’t either !
    the only things ppl have PARTIAL respect for are :
    THE GRAMMYS ” TO SOME EXTENT ” AND BILLBOARD CHARTS ” DUHH” !

  17. Ismaeel November 23, 2011

    You’re a damn hater!! You critics are nothing but damn losers who keep bitching about others!!

  18. JJFAN1814 November 23, 2011

    Like damn!!

    Every other post is about Queen Fenty!!

    Instead of promoting Talk That Talk, you need to be promoting Flop I Am, I mean Here I Am, & 4Closure. Aint nobody checking on them…..

    Unless you’re hating the fact that Loud still selling even after one year.

    #oops

  19. kimberly November 23, 2011

    @ Mathew Charlery , you write very maturely and I agree with everything that you have said and to add to it. She did not allow loud to make a statement. She should do more with it and give it longevity.

    I think that during the time period matters and the competition. The competition was not all that this week. her fans paint her to be a superstar that have a firm foot in the music industry already, and she doesn’t. If she did then her album would sell even faster than loud. I was expecting over 400 k for her but unfortunately. 180 – 200 k would be smashed any release date in the year, and to think about the time it was released? umm.

    The reason she is unable to score her # 1 is because she is not trusted as a body of art yet! she is just an artist the public wait to pick up singles until they have heard about 6 on the radio and decide to buy it.

    whoever make it look like billboard 200 is not important stop lying to yourself. lauching a #1 album is a big deal especially after 6. lauching a # 1 in current times is now based on payola and radio station politics. Ask the grammys about that.

  20. YDS November 23, 2011

    @jjfan actually beyonce has 5 that topped the charts a combined 36 weeks it tooik rihanna DOUBLE that to break her record and do 37 weeks ..GO HOME .. not to mention bey is working with #1 BODIES OF WORK .. Not a 1.29 single ur gna sing for a week or two then forget about (the usual thing that happens to a rihanna song) .. The article is about why can’t rihanna pull in big numbers .. Why is it ALWAYS 6 albums later about the “long run” with her .. Beyonce has NEVER well maybe not since 1997 wen destinys child first came out debutted with lower than 300K yes NEVER! .. Now that’s loyalty something that rihanna has yet to achieve from her fans .. Its makes no sense ppl need to hear 3 or 4 songs before saying ummm I guess ill buy it.. Cuz CLEARLY no one is running to the stores for a rihanna album

  21. JJFAN1814 November 23, 2011

    Do we forget that Rihanna set trends with music??

    ‘Dont Stop The Music’ who else had dance-pop music on the radio?

    Umbrella, all of these other b****** imitated her ‘eh, eh, ehs’

    What’s My Name….Kelly Rowlands ‘Lay it on me’, Nicole Scherzingers ‘Right There’, Keri Hilson’s ‘Lose Control’….

    Rihanna is in her own f*****’ lane and she will continue to exceed her hater’s expectations.

    Yall jus mad because a ‘talentless, no voice model’ is doing better than your faves.

  22. lol November 23, 2011

    Rihanna stans are funny. 11 (though only an assistant on a few) #1 singles later and no one cares about her albums. You guys are totally trying to justify her failure and those of us who REALLY know what the industry thinks of her are laughing. She is a joke. She doesn’t care about music. She cares about hits, money, and fame. Her fanbase was born after 1990 so I don’t expect them to get it. All these kids are complete morons. That’s all I have to say.

  23. kimberly November 23, 2011

    i always speak to truth on rihanna, i am not hating on her. I was a fan of hers. I am no longer cause she cannot meet my expectations at all. i used to defend fenty like she was my sister but i run out of things to say because i would be delusional like the rest on this site. I would say one thing, for the sake of her I would be happy if she did get that number one but for the sake of her fans making fun of other artist in the game who is way more talented than her. The results of her 1st week sales is proof that she has a long way to go. and her fans need to stfu, allow her to grow so the public can be amazed and recognize that. She cannot grow with
    “lick my persuasion,” cake cake cake come let me f*** you. that is not good people.

    she needs to take time out, learn some choreo, learn some vocal techniques, choose some challenging songs, work on her stage presence and surprise the naysayers. stop making the industry make money on her at present. they same people will jump on the next best thing around. she needs to hold her own.

    @LOL

    B**** us, RIHANNA STANS, no she’s not a strong album seller first week…WE DON’T ANTICIPATE THAT S***. Would a #1 be nice, yes!! But we support our girl regardless and she ends up selling millions in the longrun… IT’S ABOUT LONGEVITY, B****.

    I’d rather have a consistent selling album, rather than a #1 with a drastic drop (see Beyonce’s “4”).

    Get it togetha’ and talk about s*** you’re aware of. Smooches.

  26. kimberly November 23, 2011

    @ LOL , those people who grew up and know beyonce and the rest musical history knows better. these children don’t know anything about music or longevity. I cannot wait for them to grow up, and have a change of taste. maybe work for their money and spend it on good stuff rather than spend momma’s money on s***.

    Someone is saying rihanna set trends? what trends. what rihanna is doing now was done before. her producers use the formats from before and break it down for rihanna. stfu. know what you talking about. Who was the artist who introduced multiple live instruments in their sound and mix music genres in their songs? Now people forget, why? because everyone is doing it they don’t even know where it came from. They refuse to give credit. rihanna music is s***. six albums and the (naras) grammy board has not nominated one of her body of work.

    she can score 100 #1’s she can discount all her concert tickets to have a sold out tour but when her fans mature and or the next best thing comes , and she fails to deliver in the talent section. she will be out. stop making excuses for her.
    futhermore stop making fun of lady gaga, britney, beyonce, ciara and keri hilson, monica, brandy, to make her look good.

  27. Rex November 23, 2011

    @YDS YASSSSSS a rihanna stans arguement is just as flimsy and weak as her talent

  28. Beyonce is LAME November 23, 2011

    Who cares about her? Move on Samuel. Talk about your boy toy Chris Brown.

  29. JJFAN1814 November 23, 2011

    @Kimberly

    Bitter b****, I heard ‘4’ was in the bargain bin at the dollar store!!! Go buy a couple hundred copies so it can rechart on the WW Global Chart at least to be someone of a harmless threat to LOUD….

    IN THE END, RIHANNA ALLS REIGN SUPREME.

    Point blank period.

  30. Reb’l Fleur November 23, 2011

    DONT TRY IT B****’s comment >>>>>>>>>>>>>> all other comments

  31. RiRiFan November 23, 2011

    i guess the official first week sales came in?? no?? thought so. and the real question of this post is WHY DO SOME ARTIST SCORE #1 ALBUMS AND SRUGGLE TO GO GOLD?? Rihanna is 100% unbothered by all of the pressed b****** who ONLY and i repeat ONLY have this to use against her 😉

    btw. WW #1 ALBUMS >>>>> US #1 ALBUMS….just sayin.

    you tried though.

  32. kimberly November 23, 2011

    @ JJ your comments are so lame? Get off the damn internet and go get a box of Flop that Flop.I went into target and the shelve if still packed! She ain’t never doing it on billboard 200. never . you don’t even know what it is like to celebrate a #1 album. beyonce have 5 #1 – 36 weeks, rihanna 11 – 37 weeks. stop choosing quantity over quality. All of rihanna albums are just being discounted like crazy, they are always in the sale bin. while all other albums are regular price.

    Rihanna time to pop that p**** on stage and make some mad videos to have these nasty, teenagers beg their parents to buy your album.

    see you again next November. I hope Beyonce release her 5th album this time around and tour summer 2013 after her movie, to give everyone a reminder.

  33. Rex November 23, 2011

    I am not a rihanna hater .. I actually have a lot of her songs on my ipod BUT I hate to say it and I know the navy is going to pounce but I actually think blogs and her fans make her seem bigger than she really is .. I mean my mom saw a picture of her not that my mom is a pop culture expert but that’s kind of my point .. my mom is just the casual observer and when she saw a pic of rihanna she said oh that’s the girl that sings umbrella ..I think to rihannas younger fans she’s the QUEEN which I never go on blogs and try to fight them even when they foolishy attack beyonce who let’s face it her time in destinys child alone trumps rihannas entire career .. Rihanna is just a fun girl with fun music that sometimes ppl will buy (GGGB, loud) and sometimes they won’t (MITS, girl like me and rated r) .. she doesn’t have the loyalty and quite frankly the raw talent to grab ppls attention .. I hope we get a at least another album of her really trying something new because I feel like the well is starting to run dry

  34. antertain November 23, 2011

    She needs a year or two off to build anticipation and buzz. Has anyone had the chance to say where is Rihanna? NOPE!
    Now as every year passes and her team/label make her bring out an album year after year, the much documented lack of a number 1 album on the billboard charts now seems like a desperate attempt each year to achieve that feat.
    The public have bought in2 the fact Rihanna is a racy, feisty, s***, hot woman, who makes popular singles, but lacks a credible material to execute a body of work that will drawn in new fans.

    She needs a holiday, vocal training and fresh material with some decent lyrics.
    If its gonna be catchy I want it creative also.
    I’m glad for her successes with singles but need that next level now.

  35. Verge November 23, 2011

    @jjfan I kno in ur head u think ur making good points but do u honestly think the bey stans take that crap seriously LOL rihanna has 11 number singles bey only has 5 yet she’s only been charted at number 1 one week longer than beyonce HAHA 6 albums later she can barely scrape 200K HAHA she only has two out of 5 albums that have sold 5mill ww (have to use the entire world cuz in the biggest music market where she actually started her career her sales are embarrassing LOL) I mean plz we can not count beyonce 4 number one albums, 16 grammys, performing at the oscars 3 times, performing with tina turner and prince and for barbare striestrand at the kennedy center honors etc etc we can discount all of it and she’s still apart of the BIGGEST SELLING GIRL GROUP IN THE HISTORY OF THE INDUSTRY! Hahahahahahha and were comparing that to rihanna ….. #icant

  36. JoJo November 23, 2011

    if you dont like rihanna dont click on her post PLAIN AND SIMPLE no one needs to know how much you hate her smh your just wasting your energy

  37. KERRON November 23, 2011

    lol, but really why are we so surprised, we know for a fact rihanna don’t sell well her first week.why? i really dobt.

    but i think making fun of rihanna right is good because when those world while numbers come out i know sam would not be posting it.

    and i would be damn funny if TTT outsold 4

  38. Carly November 23, 2011

    The true tea is that even if Rihanna sold ZERO copies in the US, she would still outsell most of your faves with her worldwide numbers 🙂

  39. RiRiFan November 23, 2011

    if Rihanna wanted a #1 album in the US, don’t u guys think she’d be promoting her ass off here?? i mean let’s be real the girl isn’t bigger than she is made to be, she’s THE QUEEN for a reason. song is #1 on bb100 for 3 weeks before she even performed it, album #1 on itunes and amazon.

    she sit’s back and enjoys “poppin her p****” in a another timezone unbothered by you haters and she still sales her album like those who promote like its no tomorrow. and until you all realize that and #2 album that opens with 200K hell even and a #10 album that opens like that, says way more than a #1 album that opens with 80K. HAVE SEVERAL SEATS

  40. S*** (ITS R&Bey) November 23, 2011

    1) Her Fanbase are VERY Fickle & Weak. They are like boarding the Trains, BUY a Ticket but Soon they’re off headed to the NEXT destination.
    2) Shes a SINGLES Artist in every definition of the term.
    3) Her Albums arent actually WORTH buying you know, 😕 esp not when they can be streamed on Youtube for FREE (Dont judge me) 🙂
    4) Shes just an INDUSTRY chick & NO body RESPECTS her or takes her seriously. Just like to hear her generic singles on the radio.
    5) ONLY her SINGLES are in high demand, Not her albums.

    Shes DISPOSABLE & cant afford to take a year off. 😕

    but OFCOURSE the Rih stans are gonna brag about her WORLDWIDE Sells as if theyre actually impressive, just AVG. 😛

  41. Slimmaz November 23, 2011

    What does it matter how much it sells the first week when it still sells a mill plus in the long run and sells bucket load worldwide…. She’s an album seller internationally and quite frankly… WW success >>>> US success.

  42. Judas666 November 23, 2011

    MOST PEEPS DONT HAVE TIME TO SPEND MONEY ON A LIP SYNCER AND LIP DANCER. THEREFORE, THE FREEBIE DOWNLOADABLE ALBUMS ARE THE WAY TO GO… PRETTY MUCH EXPLAINS IT.

  43. RiRiFan November 23, 2011

    @S*** (ITS R&Bey)

    THE FACT THAT SHE SALES ANYWHERE NEAR AND OVER THE AMOUNT OF A WOMAN WITH LIKE 15 YRS OF FANBASE SAYS A TON. SO YOU CAN MISS THE NAVY WITH ALL THAT, THOSE SAME ARGUMENTS HAVE GOTTEN OLDER THAN BEYONCE’S BIRTH CERTIFICATE. 😉

  44. gergerger November 23, 2011

    LOL— well put!

  45. S*** (ITS R&Bey) November 23, 2011

    & Rihanna is NOT that Big btw, Shes only popular among the TEENY BOPPERS, Shes actually OLDER than Most her Fans! 😐 But good for her being able to cater to them & all there Generic-Pop Needs 🙂 She STILL has her Youth & will keep it for a long time seeing that she still looks & sounds like a LITTLE GIRL.

    GIRLS cant be Queens, Only Women like bey can be Queens/Kings 🙂

  46. TruthTeller November 23, 2011

  49. rah rah like a dungeon dragon November 23, 2011

    lmao at Sam and the rest of the ppl trying to down Rihanna cuz of a #1 album…..really really really come on ppl, Rihanna dont need a #1 album to prove that she can sell record…if yall throwing Beyonce in for argument sake, let take it as an example…Bey stayed away for 2 fncking yrs, build all the hyped around her self and yall fans/stans say she coming for Rihanna wigs, but still that hasnt happened, Bey didnt even get Lady Gaga wig far less Adele, for Rihanna to be dropping an album every yr and still sell more than Bey who stayed away for 2yrs still made no difference to Rihanna sales…i saw Sam watching Bey WW sales but when it comes to Rihanna he wanna pull in US sales, still Bey hasnt surpass 2 million WW….so all this talk about Rihanna makes no sense whether she has a #1 album or not, this girl talented or untalented what ever u wanna see she has proved that she can release an album with big competitions, stay relevant even when Lady gaga britney adele and beyonce released abums in 2011…..so talk that talk regardless rihanna stays supreme, she has charted the 2nd female highest in WW sales after Adele for 2010-2011 period with her album Loud regardless of the fact RR was barely a year old…..Rihanna is building and growing TTT

  50. Lax November 23, 2011

    You can say what you want to say you can frame it how ever you want to frame it it matters a dam. The Question is not Why rihanna can”t get a #1 Album But why do the people that has gotten a #1 lately WHY HAVE THEIR ALBUM DIED IN THE PROCESS OF TRYING TO STAND TALL AFTER THE FIRST STRONG WIND HITS ITS ENTRANCE THROUGHT THAT #1 DOORWAY CASE IN POINT Chris, Loyd, Jill, Bey, kelly Just To Name A few????????????

    We Know why all of the FIXATION ON RIHANNA Is because of the hate for her being the main FACTOR FOR THE INQUIRES. And no matter how you slice it the navy has got her back throught all of her Struggles and i am keeping my money on the CARIBBEAN PRINCESS And don’t give a dam who says different.

  51. S*** (ITS R&Bey) November 23, 2011

    @RIRIFAN

    But Rih SHOULD be way Bigger, Better & More successful than she is Today. 22 Million off 5 Albums is good but Pathetic for Rihanna who releases all those Singles 😕

    Rih’s Status today isnt HALF as high as her stans make it seem.

    Bey has achieved STATUS!! Her Kingdom is already BUILT while rihanna is Still Buidling. But hey maybe Bey will let Rihanna borrow some Bricks (& a #1 Album while shes at it) 😉

  52. Verge November 23, 2011

    IT’S DAMN NEAR SAD TO SEE MARY’S PROMOTING HER CROWS FEET OFF AND IS EXPECTED TO SELL LESS THAT RIHANNA.

    MY POINT IS YOU ALL KEEP TRYING AND “TALKING THAT TALK” MAKES YOU LOOK LIKE PRESSED. NOW THAT RIHANNA HAS A GOOD AMOUNT OF WRITING CREDITS, PRODUCTION CREDITS, ETC. ALL U HAVE IS A SHITTY ASS US #1 ALBUM…THE US!!?? LMAO THE NAVY DOESN’T CARE AND NEITHER DOES RI. AND @ THE END OF THE DAY SHE’S STILL SELLS OUT SHOWS AND SALES ALBUMS JUST LIKE THOSE BIG OPENERS. K?

  55. Observer November 23, 2011

    Sam is a bitter B****! What’s the matter Sam? Did Rihanna reject you or something? Your stalker like hatred is incredible. It’s like she stole your man or something and you are out for revenge.

  57. kimberly November 23, 2011

    @ RiRI fan if rihanna is selling 180-200k after 6 years what will it be after 15 years. Think before you type nonsense.

    @Rex the ri fans will disagree because they were not alive and kicking in the time of DC3, but Beyonce in DC3 is already more successful than Rhianna’s career.

    Beyonce’s name is cemented already and no matter who comes after will never fade her. she has made a mark. she doesn’t care about sales and she has said that since way back in 2007. her focus is on her craft as a whole, and building her legacy.

  58. kimberly November 23, 2011

    NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU COMPARE HER TO ANY OTHER FEMALE ARTIST SHE’S STILL A MASSIVE FORCE WORLDWIDE AND LOCALLY.

  60. pat November 23, 2011

    Rihanna makes a collection of singles versus an album. Sure her label would like to see bigger album sales, but they know she’ll sale at least 20 million singles/ringtones after all is said and done. And the album will stay around long enough to move at least a million units in the US alone.. I’m sure they’d prefer that over 300k straight out the gate and falling off every week with no hit singles. (no shade)

I bought loud a few months ago after hearing california king bed and man down (yes I was extremely dissapointed) but its like I’m not rihanna fan I just heard some songs I liked LOL I feel like most ppl buy rihannas music this way which is why she NEVER has a big opening week .. No one cares really LOL

  63. TruthTeller November 23, 2011

    @TIMMY

    4 debuted with 511K worldwide so over 60% of its sales was in the USA.

    I guaranty u that TTT witll debut with about 600K worldwide and no 1 country will have contributed more than 33% of its total

  64. IT’S ALL GOOD!!! November 23, 2011

    It’s because she NEVER promotes it because she’s constantly on TOUR. I haven’t seen her promote an album in the U.S. since Good Girl Gone Bad!

    @kimberly

    NOW: AS I’VE SAID BEFORE BEYONCE IS 10 YRS AHEAD OF THE GAME AS RIHANNA AND THE FACT THAT YOU GUYS ARE COMPARING THEM IS AMAZING!! IT’S A COMPLIMENT ON BEYONCE’S BEHALF TO EVEN BE MENTIONED IN THE SAME SENTENCE AS THE QUEEN. BUT ANYWAYS, RIHANNA CAN SELL 1 F****** COPY IN HER FIRST WEEK, SHE’LL STILL EITHER OUTSELL OR SELL CLOSE AS MUCH AS BEY.

  66. Lax November 23, 2011

    Veeeeeeeery aware of the fact that many or still trying to beat it into SOCIETY That RIHANNA Can’t pour p*** out of a Booth. Since Popular and opinions has been casdted then this only means that Rihanna and her Navy will have to really work extra hard to hold the lines on this FLOT TO LET SOCIETY AND THE STRONG HATERATIIN DOSAGES ON THE TALENTED ARTIST. RIHANNA Have got the dead coming back to life to CELEBRATE , BECAUSE OF HER ALBUM LEAK AND BECAUSE RIHANNS DOES NOT CUT THE MUSTARD FOR HER HATERS. The critics or a different group and while i do respect them i amd certain that RIHANNA, THE NAVY AND HER TEAM Will never ever turn Our Backs On her No matter what is printed, stated, and logged aganist her. Thank for the BIG
    EYE WAKING SHOT OF GET OFF YOUR ASS RIHANNA AND YOUR NAVY AND PROVE YOURSELVES WORTHY, AND THAT WE WILL DO WITH LOADS OF GRACE, STYLE AND PURE RAW KICK YOU IN YOUR HATING ASSES ATTITUDES!!!!!!!! The big JOYOUS CELEVRATIONS HAS STARTED AS SOON AS NEWS OF HER ALBUM LEAD SURFED, AND THE LOOSERS, HATERS AND THE DEAD HAS BEEN CARRYING ON A CELEBRATION EVER SINCE. Now i am reminded of the thought that Be careful of digging
    them Holes for Others because You could just fall into One YOURSELF. i Am also reminded that all of the Excitement over Her not going #1 could turn right back around with a SWIFTNESS AND BITE THE HATERS IN THEIR ASS. We will just have to figure out a way to stay stucked like glue together and see if we can’t work out a plan to Work Smarter & Harder to see if we can keep this cruse liner from sailing of Course now want We?

  67. TruthTeller November 23, 2011

    4 did not debut #1 in 24 countries. Itunes charts are not official national charts.
    I want a list.
    MORE LIES FROM THE BEY.H.I.Vs

    4 FAILED to debut #1 in other anglo saxon countries with similar cultures such as New Zealand, Australia, Canada…
    It also FAILED in other huge market such as France, Germany & Japan.

    If Beyonce was such a big artist, the BeyH.I.Vs wouldn’t have to LIE about her stats everyday.

    6 Albums w/ only 6 MILLION sold in the US = PATHETIC!!!!

    9 #1 Hits = NO #1 ALBUM is PATHETIC!!!!!!

    B**** Bey sold 12 MILLION in the US with only counting 4 of her 8 Albums!! Count all of them & thats over 30 MILLION ALBUMS…

    thats MORE than Rih-Navy sold WORLDWIDE to DATE!!!! 😉

    Beyonce has gone places your favorite wishes to go. she has crown queen in places the public would not be fascinated by your favorite. beyonce has not been around the world promoting because she can’t while rihanna dragging her h***** ass everywhere. good try guys.
    she did not make to list of icons and legends for no reason. they don’t call her queen for no reason. hell they don’t even call he king for no reason. She is highly respected unlike your fav.

    #NEVER.

    LOUD is the CLOSEST she ever came to IASF & still its a FAIL!

    DONT mention BEY4 unless you want to get DRAGGED!!

    WHY cant you Put rihanna up agaist KATTY, CACA, Nikki 😐

    Why compare her to THE BEST when she cannot win against THE BEST???

    She shoulda had more songs like drunk on love, we all want love. The latter is my jam

  77. Freddy November 23, 2011

    whoever tries to downplay the US market is incredibly dumb LOL artists AROUND the world (and I’m trying to be an A&R and have interned at a lot of places) consider breaking the US market a major deal.. There is a reason when main stream artists hit it big in other places they sometimes rework they’re whole albums simply for the US market .. Like it or not in the industry the US hot 100 and US billboard 200 album charts are the top dogs..of course since rihanna doesn’t do well in the US the navy wants to downplay it which is understandable u stan for ur fave but its just not realistic lol

  78. kimberly November 23, 2011

    @ RIRIFAN , QUENN RIHANNA STILL CANNOT GET A # 1 ALBUM? WITH SIX ALBUMS . HER SALES ARE NOT IMPRESSIVE FOR SIX ALBUMS! SHE SUPPOSE TO HAVE HIT THAT MILESTONE ALREADY. ALMOST A DECADE AND ALL THE QUEEN HAS IS #1 SINGLES AND FACEBOOK FOLLOWERS?

    QUEEN RIRI CANNOT GIVE A MEMORABLE PERFORMANCE TO DATE!
    QUEEN RIRI CANNOT GET THE PUBLIC ON THEIR FEET
    QUEEN RIRI CANNOT EVEN SING HER OWN SONGS LIVE FARE LESS A COVER
    QUEEN RIRI DOESN’T EVEN KNOW MUSIC HER PRODUCER HAVE TO TELL HER THE NOTE SHE IS SINGING
    QUEEN RIRI HAS NEVER BEEN FEATURED ON A MUSIC MAG
    QUEEN RIRI IS NOT A GRAMMY FACTOR
    QUEEN RIRI IS A PUPPET!
    QUEEN RIRI CANNOT DANCE TO SAVE HER LIFE IN THE WILDERNESS

    THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS WHERE ARE HER CAREER HIGHLIGHTS. I HAVE BEEN ASKING FROM DAY ONE. IF SHE IS QUEEN WHAT HAS SHE DONE AS AN ARTIST. NOT FROM HER PRODUCER OR DIRECTOR OR MANGER. WHAT HAS SHE DONE AS AN ARTIST ‘ LOL GO TO SCHOOL B******

    WHY DO YOU WANT TO COME FOR AN ICON. YOUR FAV IS FAR FROM THAT

I mean she’s not a writer or producer, she doesn’t play an instrument (well I’ve seen her play the drums on tour and ill jus say she doesn’t play an instrument LOL), her voice live is so grating sometimes, her productions are starting to completely repeat themselves (roc me out is literally like a rude boy remix) I mean she just so basic in every way its a matter of time before ppl start exiting the navy ships LOL I mean u only stan for billboard stats and no raw talent for so long

    YouFail.com too
    The US markethas lost its luter.
    Just in the past 5 years Amy Wi.ehouse, Mika, James Blunt all become the biggest selling worldwide act of their calendar year and barely went platinum in the USA.
    And even Adele wouldn’t neeed the US to be #1 worldwide.

    Looked at the best selling artists these past 6 years from 06 (James Blunt), 07 (Amy Winehouse) 08(Coldplay), 09 (Susan Boyle), 10 (Gaga), 11 (Adele).

    5 of them are from the UK.
    Only Gaga from 2010 is a US Citizen.

    So obviously, the US ain t s*** no more. The UK is the biggest cultural powerhouse there is due to their cultural influence on international market from the colonization day.

    Thank you so much. That’s what I don’t understand. If anything, people should respect Rihanna for her accolades because she worked as a solo artist.

    Bey would not have been anything if she had not had Destinys Child. She was able to stand out due to the fact of the other girls. When Bey went solo, she took a fan base that had already been established.

    Rihanna had to work and work and work as a solo artist, which is always hard because you get all the criticism.

    hell yes Chris bown is a talent and he will get his shine again cause fame was a hell of an album. no denying that. sooner or later people will get tired of this b**** lackluster performances and vocals.
    The public knows nothing about stats idiots, they don’t know s*** what they know is what they see, and so far only the artist that show case real talent are praised.
    Rihanna is never praised for her talent. Chris brown has his people talking. oh hell gaga is a gimmick but her talent is visible. Beyonce is the king and the media has said it. it is published. but rihana not even her manager talks about her.
    All icons and legends are known for their talent. What will she be known for. seasonal hit songs the next generation will dismiss? c’mon rihtards. give it up. come in for a better argument and not post some embarrassing sales stas from rihanna from 5 albums, whereas artist have doubled that in 2 or 3 albums. If you don’t know it is not impressive.

    Why can’t Beyonce get a Hit single.

  108. MiroBoi November 23, 2011

    Amen, I honestly think that if she putS time into these albums, and waits for more than a year or two too relese SOMETHING, and have people wanting more, she’ll have people interested in her album.
    But I think shes scared. if she does that, she’ll become irrelevent.

    If anyone thinks that rihanna is going to outsell drake next week your bugging!!!! Rihanna is everything that sam explained. People invest in her singles and not albums because she has no talent!!! Even in the week of black friday she wont scan beyonce numbers? something is f****** wrong!! Beyonce came out with her cd a week before black friday and did 500k .. wtf .. the numbers speak for themselves

    The fact that rihanna name is now with madonna and Mj lmao. I am out. bye rihtards. This alone just proves that the navy is senseless and below the ages of 10. They are not worth my time. bottom line.

    Get that # 1 album b******. Meanwhile Drake is # 1, nickleback is #2, ricunt is #3, she ain’t never doing it !! THE QUEEN IS ALWAYS PUNCHED DOWN. MTV PUNCH HER OWN. EMA’S PUNCH HER DOWN, HOT 200 PUNCH HER DOWN, EVEN THE FRANCE MEDIA PUNCHING HER DOWN. HER VIDEO CAN ONLY BE VIEWED AFTER 10. LOL. WAITING FOR THE GRAMMYS TO NOMINATE HER CLASSICS.

  129. kimberly November 23, 2011

    Rihanna sucess is limted and with hte help of song writers and producers.

    She will never be able to hold her own to even perform with her idol which is Beyonce
    She will not be able to sing the national anthem
    she will not be able to impress anyone at the oscars
    she will never be ask to join the OSCAR ACADEMY like her idol
    she will not be chosen to sing to the president more than once
    She will not be chosen to headline the biggest festival in the world
    She will not be able to dominate the music industry.
    She will not ever have more movies than her idol, nor have a successful business, without her team of hundreds.
    she will not be the decade artist, nor own a millineum award.

    reason for that is because her talent is limited. It is limited to billboard hot 100 with the help of payola, and the exception of clothes

  131. barbie November 23, 2011

    @ririfan, you are so right about the “little effort”. That is why she will soon be gone. You all should demand that she put more effort into her work. What kind of artist allows other people to take craetive control of their work. As an artist the point is not to break records but to do your best work, which if very good WILL end up breaking records. The point is to express what you feel, think or see. Not take other people’s creative ideas and sell it for them. She has potential though and will achieve greatness if she takes control but the fans need to stop making excuses and make demands instead!!

    I am not a hater but i would love to see her improve and I would support her. case close i am not a delusional fan who thinks that she is great. she is not. Good luck to her success but i don’t want to imagine another album in november. The navy need to acknowledge and tell her. she is on twitter 24/7.

    I Love To See How 90% of the people on this site are Beyonce and Mary J fans.Mary’s album will sell trust me.Beyonce’s album is still selling and will continue to.It was fun to see 500 comments on the MJ and Rih post.Everyone is annoyed with Rih’s fans.Talking s*** to everybody now look at em.I got that trash on bootleg,she’s not getting anymore of my money and I’m never going to see her in concert again,I’m tired of being disappointed.Shell have a 7th album by next summer.Rolls Eyes.Jay get that doe.Def Jam get that doe.Lmao they work her ass to death,like she’s in a damn sweatshop.I’m glad Beyonce is still benefiting from her and her stupidass fans.Jay Z was a smart business man.SMH Gotta Love It!

  198. kimberly November 23, 2011

    @ Another queen will be born.
    You went to her concert? Her fans say is is always great but some people i know said that they wanted they money back and they are like 24, 25.
    I feel the same way. I was tired of giving chances asn being disappointed whereas there are artist who burst their asses with their talent. It’s time people send their money wisely

    @ririfan I would hav NEVER said anything to u had u not been like oh beyonce is lucky to be mentioned with rihanna which as I pointed out is a joke .. Rihanna stans are like rihannas the best beyonce sucks and as soon as the bey stans respond or say ummmm no were ATTACKING rihanna .. Plzz I’m not tryin to take anything away from rihanna but let’s not sit here and pretend that they’re accomplishments are even in the same ball park .. Hell even in the same country
    —————————————————————————————–

    Seriously, i honestly dont know why these two are compared so much.
    FACT is beyonce is way ahead of the game, rihanna in no where near her.
    Dont know why some thinkg rihanna is better, thats not only a joke, but who ever says that needs serious help…

  200. jamir21 November 23, 2011

    @ missimpartial

    no because i want to have a big beyonce and rihanna collection

  201. MissImpartial November 23, 2011

    @Are you serious
    Every artist would sell a lot if they could sell it for 99 cent. It is cheating if 400K are sold because they are 99cent.

    @Jamir
    Ok.

  202. Another Queen Will Be Born November 23, 2011

    @Kimberly Yes I have gone to her concert this year,she did a concert for the tornado victims in Birmingham Alabama.I like the see dance moves and see an artists moving and singing from their heart.It wasn’t all that good it graded a C-.I’ve also been to several Beyonce concerts as well.Our family travel to see her and spend a lot of money on her tickets because we get our money’s worth out of it.Beyonce Is The Truth.That’s why she has a fanbase that will always support her.Don’t get me wrong I like Rihanna I have man down on my ringtone,I have all of her cds and I’ve bought them from the store except this one.I’m just never happy after I hear her music a couple of times I’m done.Plus I loved her more before.I looked at the We Found Love video yesterday.My Gawd what a mess she’s becoming and Chris Brown looks just like that guy in it.The arguing in the car scene….. My MY My!!!! She just seems to be going down hill image wise.I don’t know what’s going on with her but its not good I tell you that.I like her but her lackluster songs suck and her fans Really Suck.Bragging like she’s more than what she is.SMH.If she cleans her image up and makes some good music and hire a choreographer maybe I will jump back on her team.Until then to the bootlegger I will go.Pretty young lady just seems to have a dark cloud over her to me.Somethings Off about her.She’s definitely not happy.

  203. Another Queen Will Be Born November 23, 2011

    Excuse My Typos I’m sitting up under the hair dryer at the salon,while on my phone.Anyway I still want Rihanna to succeed,all of the artists are doing their thing.I just want waste anymore of my ends on music that I’m not happy with.

    The navy is mad and upset this morning , what really going on with y’all girl….like I always say you can’t compare Rihanna to Beyonce. Not goning to be mean and just leave it at that 🙂 Happy Holidays ….beehive don’t go in too bad mama told us to tone it down lol

  206. Gilberto November 23, 2011

    I don’t think she can build a strong fanbase like Britney Spears, Beyoncé and Lady Gaga. She’s just released her 6th album, there are no excuses for it not hitting #1. Rihanna willl always need to release generic songs, change her personality and look, record with top producers, etc. Without support of successful singles, people won’t buy her albums. She’s a long-run seller, therefore she needs to release back-to-back hits.
    I think the fact that she releases a new album every year is bad as well. People are getting tired of her. Honestly, I used to love Rihanna but since “Loud”, I can’t stand her anymore. It isn’t about the music itself, it’s all about numbers. Even her fans can only talk about numbers. If we say that she sounded completly off-key on X-Factor, they say “she has got 10 #1 hits. U MAD?”.
    I feel like Def Jam is desperate to sell as fast as they can, like Rihanna won’t be relevant anymore in the next 5 years so they’re milking her to death. I don’t know. When I see a Rihanna’s album on shelves, I see just a label’s product not a real piece of inpiration, work and talent.
    I think GGGB and Rated R will stand as her most solid works.

  207. Josh November 23, 2011

    I wouldnt go as far as saying shes a flop, i enjoy her music,
    But idk, talk that talk album is not what i call a great album.

  208. Josh November 23, 2011

    @ jamir21
    Yes her doctor even said that she needs a BREAK !
    I guess Jay-Z is kind of cruel because he wants those big `000s !
    Instead of telling Rih to take a vacation !
    I guess those 000`s are more important to him instead her life !
    ——————————————————————————–
    Not trying to fight with you jamir21, i promise,
    just saying no body is putting a gun to her head making her do everything shes doing.
    She can stop for a year if she wants, she just has to make sure she still has her fan base to come back too. Her team of hundreds not just jay can tell her to take a break, that is ultimitally up to her. You know what i mean?

  210. pop royalty ( RUDE BOY) November 23, 2011

    after reading all of the above comments , i think i should get back to STANNING for beyonce as well !!

    @BEY’knight :

    as much as i hate to say it ” as a rihanna stan” , i feel like i’m dumb when i focus on lyrics ” since english is not my native language ” !

    but i agree , ONLY the tracks you just mentioned are the ones i felt the real rihanna in , others i felt like she want to be someone she is NOT ! i’m tired of her talking about S&M and cake cake cake cake cake cake !!

    and that’s coming from a semi-disappointed rihanna stan 🙁 !

    i wanted to see growth , like when she did with RR , and she gave me LOUD PT.2 ” not even close , but anyway ” !! 😯

    i will still support her ! but here i gave my

    REAL thoughts beside the whole stanning s*** i am known for !!!

    @S*** :

    b**** please !
    BEY’s 4 is not even a successful album compared to her other albums ” with their multiple releases , YO REMEMBER H** ? ”

    and u wanna compare IASF to LOUD ?!
    i do not think you want it b**** ! how many times IASF was re-released ?!

    how many ?

    how many attempts to get a hit after SL ?!

    HOW MANY ?

    and she said it was ALL about the singles , i know your ” stanning for BB homemaker ” ASS knows that !

    so 4 is not even a successful album , let alone being a flop , i do not like that word and i do not use it when i talk about BEY cuz i love and respect the woman , but please , DO NOT TRY TO DO IT !

    do not TALK numbers IN A RIHANNA POST or u will get dragged ! but i will forgive you cuz this is your first warning , u still got 2 cuz i know stans from BYE-HIVE like you are that dumb and repetitive !!

    buh-byeee C*** !!

  211. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare November 23, 2011

    Please, please, please let Rihanna debut at #1 so I will never have to read this recycled post again–damn!

    1) i cannot stand the Beyoncé vs. Rihanna nonsense. Their music have absolutely nothing in common–nothing. I just don’t get it.

    2) Say what you will about Rihanna, the album will do very well in the long run–it always does. Because I loved “Rated R,” I hoped that she would take a little more time off to perfect “Talk That Talk” so it could get on that level. I’m just praying that she releases “We All Want Love” as a single so it will get the video treatment. Great song! But it’s whatever, all that matters is that her fans enjoy “TTT”

  220. Gilberto November 23, 2011

    I wish Def Jam could give her a time to record an album by herself. I’d like to see her sharing her experiences of traveling around the world, meeting different people and cultures, showing her feelings and thoughts, etc.
    I’d like to see her training her vocals and stage presence to become a better version of herself. She has got a good voice, she just doesn’t know how to use it. I feel like she’s stuck, I barely see any growth as an artist and performer.
    If Rihanna wants to be a legend, she needs to push herself harder. History has proven that #1 hits don’t make you a legend. She needs pop culture phenomenons and memorable performances. She needs to take risques. Stop doing this generic made-by-numbers songs, it’s hot today but no one will care about it tomorrow.
    Unfortunately, I can’t see her as an artist, an iconic or whatever, she’s a product. She has got a lot of personality to be only a product, but she needs to step out of the box. She can’t let Def Jam control her career, her image and herself anymore. They gave her fame, she’s giving them money. Now, she needs to be known as artist and an icon. Another #1 hit won’t change anything.

  221. kimberly November 23, 2011

    @ another queen, same here. Those who think that her rebellious attitude and her image is good. Guys no it is not good. My family is turned off by it. A lot of people are turned off by it. It is getting old. My little cousin 10 yrs don’t listen to her music anymore after her last video. It is beyond disgusting. It is already banned in france. I have sense and I won’t give an artist my money to get richer. i support an artist who is giving me my money’s worth.
    Not everybody hates rihanna, they speak the truth, and sam goes a little over some times but he speaks the truth. whoever thinks T TT is a great album is just too embarrassed to admit that it is not. Even if i was a die hard fan i would not buy it. I don’t own loud but i would prefer buy loud than ttt.

You a f****** messy hypocrite too cause you all up in this bish trying act all high and might on music taste and was popping your p**** to songs like video phone, check on it, diva, ego AND THE LIST GOES ON!! F*** OUTTA HERE!!

  226. whyohwhy November 23, 2011

    I hate to add this (know I dont) but she has matured, what you hear is what’s there. You cant build a castle with no bricks, Rihanna is nothing more than sand. Yeah she has nice songs but she cant, to this day do anything with them. Again! people are tired of the same ole s** positions this girl keeps giving them. Every year why? If she is this great VOCALIST biggest lie ever than why want she take a break and do the clothes? You know why this girl can come out every year with a new album? because she is not singing them live if you backtrack and lip sync and get away with it likes she do why not keep putting out stuff. Her last two performances of WFL has been nothing more than backtracking and if you watch she cant even do that right. She is famous for bending over and sticking the mic out for the audience can sing with the help of backtracking and backup singers. You cant party and drink/drugs also, make another album, do shows with her lack of talent. GIMMICK and the more you stans buy the more she will continue to come out, if this one dont go #1 by x-mas this year she will have another one out they will put the other songs that did not make the cut on this one… She knows a hit!!

  227. WHUT November 23, 2011

    @WHY you a damn lie ho!! Chick may not be the best vocalist but 99% of the time she’s live. Heck most I’ve seen her use a backing track was on X factor US recently. You know damn-well she used to get crucified too cause of it in the early stages of her career but kept doing her performances live till she got better at it!! These b****** today….SMH

  232. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare November 23, 2011

    @GILBERTO, I agree with the others, great comment.

    What is so frustrating to me is that when she did take a risk with “Rated R,” like @Jamir21 said, people treated Rihanna like she was crazy or something. In so many ways, they were telling her “we don’t want you to be introspective,” “we don’t want you to really write or sing interesting songs,” just give us some thinkless pop music.

    It’s her career. I’m not gonna pretend like I know better than her. But I will continue to wait for an album on “Rated R’s” level because I know she can do it.

    We’ve seen this before: Madonna’s “Erotica” Janet’s “The Velvet Rope” “Rihanna’s ‘Rated R” Beyonce’s “4”

    These are fantastic albums but as soon as an artist does a serious piece of work, many fans react negatively.

    “Erotica” and “The Velvet Rope” are now classics but people hated them when they first came out because they were so different than their previous work. In other words, they were too difficult for a lot of people.

    It’s too soon to deem “Rated R” and “4” classics because they are too young but I have a feeling they will be classic albums.

    Rihanna’s album sales have never been front-loaded. And they’ve never been focuses on just the US. As well, Rihanna has never released a week she could shine like OTHERS have. While others make sure that there’s no competition the week of release to GUARANTEE a #1 album with huge first week sales, Rihanna’s team is focused on how much they can sell WW in a year. They know Rihanna can’t sell huge opening week, why bother? Rihanna proved with Good Girl Gone Bad that she’s going to get her sales even if it takes a year and she’s going to outsell your fav WW

  245. COMMNADEROFTHEDANCEFLOOR November 23, 2011

    first WW sales over US only. so rihanna isn’t going to be #1 i already said that. but i can guarantee that this album outsell most of your favs and be #1 on the world wide charts. rihanna is not a big seller in the US she is an international act. loud debuted at #3 in the US but it was #1 for six weeks on the world wide charts. and loud has sold 6 million. and it is the only album released last year that has even sold over 1 million in the UK. and currently loud is outselling most of the top sellers of this year, not to throw shade but loud has been selling more than born this way and 4 for a couple of weeks now.

    i think that this should of been just a loud rerelease to push her album into the 8 or 9 million mark. but TTT will still sell and it will be #1 world wide.

    oh and WFL still #1 while take care feat. rihanna is #4 and you da one debuts at #9 tying the record for most songs in the top 10.

  246. jamir21 November 23, 2011

    Rihanna is the first female in history to dominate the billboard charts with three songs in the top ten position. We found love is #1 for four weeks. You day one is #9 and take care with Drake is # 4. You Guys keep talking about trivial things while RI RI keeps making history. Rihanna is the tether. Top 5 albums. Top 5 hits. She stay winning.

  254. rozel November 23, 2011

    why is rihannna expected to have a #1 album in the USA. Isn’t a top 5 good enough< since all of her US albums always debut within the top 5 except for music of the sun which was a top 10. Isn't the #1 album in the world (loud ) for four weeks enough? It seems that no matter how much rihanna has achieved you act like its not enough. How many of the artist who have a #1 album are dominating the billboard charts and making history like Rihanna?? So if those other artists aren't getting a #1 album on the world charts, or having a record amount of #1 hits and making history on the charts, and no one expects them to do it. Why the hell are you guys riding rihanna to get a #1 album. She'll get one when she's damn good and ready and when all the other artists are able to do what she's doing on the charts. They can't have 10 #1 hits on the billboard charts, or a #1 album in the world, so why the hell should she be expected to have a #1 album in the USA? Its like people are always putting pressure on Rihanna to do what half the people in the biz over 20 plus years ain't even doing or has done. Little ms. sunshine in 6 years have done alot .

  259. Gilberto November 23, 2011

    Some Rihanna’s stans can’t see the bigger picture. I wonder if they’re really fans of hers, or they’re just jumping on what’s currently hot. Please! This s*** is the kinda record no one gives a f***. Ashanti is the only singer to have a #1 and a #2 hit simultaneously on Hot 100. I bet you didn’t know this and I bet 99,99% of population don’t know this either. It’s irrelevant. Seriously.
    Like I said before, what’s really matter is iconic and memorable stuff. I don’t spend my time looking charts as I used to be, they’re pretty irrelevant. People don’t know and don’t care about who’s #1 this week, they don’t know what’s Billboard, RIAA, Soundscan, etc. A #1 song just represents a single week. An iconic song represents a generation and it’ll be remembered for years to come.
    Rihanna lacks on what’s really important to be a legend: iconic singles, memorable performances, classic music videos, praised by critics. And I ain’t even a huge fan of hers, but I want to see her doing bigger things. But her fans are just obsessed to numbers. Actually, they’re just obsessed to Hot 100 numbers. Everything is irrelevant but Hot 100. Please! IMO another #1 is just another one in a box. 10 #1 hits didn’t make people respect and recognize her as an artist and icon, 11, 12, 15, 20 won’t change this fact.
    No matter what we say, Navy is always bringing this #1 hits. If we say that she sounded pretty bad on X-Factor, they only thing they’ll say is “Rihanna has got 10 #1 hits. U MAD?”. Please! They’re acting like Britney Spears’ fans.
    P.S. And her album sales looks worser when you see that she’s so successful on Hot 100. Baby, that’s pathetic. And you know it. You’d better not post it.

    I don’t know why everyone is even wasting their time on the haters. We already dragged them on the last post

    Their calling Talk That Talk a Flop the sales are not even IN. The album has been out for 2 day’s

    Talk That Talk has sold over 80k in the uk in two day’s meaning it’s going to be PLATINUM first week!!!!

    while everyone is here calling rihanna a flop she is is making history

    The navy don’t respond to the hate,,,,,They do this EVERY Era. They Forget they said the SAME thing with LOUD now when we even say the name their blood boils. Leave them this is the ONLY think they can use against rihanna (No #1 Album in the usa) when the number’s start coming in THAT is when we will TALK OUR TALK

    I love how Rihanna named this album Talk That Talk because she let’s the haters talk there talk while her and the navy WALK that WALK.

    I will leave this topic because to be honest it Dry and we all know the TRUTH!

    Navy Remember this week remember all the things they are saying because we will LAUGH in their faces at the end (Like We Always do)

    Rihanna can sell 20k in American and will still be able to outsell their fav from the sales that come from the rest of the world

    I also find it funny how people think America is bigger then the WORLD

    Good Day!

    How is selling 6 million albums world wide bad album sales? How you figure that?

    How is debuting in the top 5 of every release bad album sales? how you figure that?

    HOw is having a #1 album in the World, bad album sales? how you figure that?

    So if kathy perry with 90,000 sales first week got a #1 album, and Chris brown with 200,000 Sales first week got a #1 album, then Rihanna could have gotten a #1 album as well too. If only she had released the very same day they did. #1 albums only come from your release date. Nothing more nothing less, because as voinko pointed out in his tumbler, rihanna starts low but ends up outselling all in the long run. So wth else you expect us to say gilberto. We’ve bragged about her #1 hits, we’ve bragged about her #1 album in the world, we’ve bragged about her making history on the world charts. We’ve bragged about her perfume selling well. And we’ve bragged about all of her accomplishments, but it never seems to be enough for you guys. You always come up with something else to say about her. But there are many who are selling less than rihanna, have never had a number one album in the us or the world, have never had a hit anywhere, isn’t even making rihanna money, and you all don’t jump all over them like you do Rihanna. Its like this girl trying to make a living is killing you all or something.

  266. ajanni November 23, 2011

    The reason why she does not have a #1 album is because her MAIN audience is 12-13 year old girls. The last time I checked, they do not hold jobs nor do they generate the income to buy Ms. Rhianna’s X-rated lyrical albums in stores. These are the same immature audiences running around saying it, tweeting it, or putting her awful lyrics on facebook “I like it when you eat it, eat it, eat it.” These immature audiences are the ones that get excited when there is any kind of cursing or s** talk on albums. It’s like ooohhh…she said “suck my cockiness” how utterly STUPID! What GROWN-UP does this?

    Rihanna is a used and abused mechanical puppet and will FOREVER be a victim not only to her music company, but also to her self-degrading persona.

  269. Gilberto November 23, 2011

    B****, please. I am tired of this. It’s a fact that she doesn’t have a #1 album. Deal with it. I ain’t faking this. It’s a F-A-C-T. And stop with these excuses. All these “could’ve” and “should’ve” don’t change the fact it isn’t #1. TTT is her 6th album. 6th attempt to have a #1 album. There are no excuses for it not hit #1 and knowing it is going to sell less than Loud, 4, Femme Fatale or Born This Way’s first week sales, it makes even worser. You know it, everybody knows it. Deal with it.
    Beyoncé released I Am… Sasha Smash in the same week as Nickelback’s album, and it was released after their most successful album, Beyoncé topped the charts. “4” would’ve topped the chart as well if it was released this week.
    TTT is just another flop for Rihanna. She has got two flop albums, which no one even knows their names, and Rated Flop. Deal with it.
    The problem is Rihanna’s stans are so obsessed to numbers, but when it comes to Hot 200 you don’t care. BIASED. B******. You’re all biased.
    RIHANNA’S ALBUMS ARE ALLERGIC TO HIT #1. LMAO.
    P.S. Don’t worry about Beyoncé. You should spend your time supporting your fave, ’cause she’s flopping with this album.
    P.S.2. Beyoncé never sold her tour tickets for $10 like Rihanna did. LOL.
    P.S.3. Stop bringing this World Wide Charts s***. It isn’t official. I’M HERE FOR OFFICIAL THINGS. You can bring Billboard, Uk’s charts, etc, but there isn’t no official world charts.

    Gilberto..face the facts. Rihanna must be doing something righ. Cause why are you so presses and heated. How is Rihanna not having a no.1 album affecting your life? And did she tell you she was attempting to get a no.1 with her tries. She could have released on a less competitive week and gotten one if she thought it was that important. You said Asanti’s stats are irrelevant but you seemed to have remembered it. Yeah so what if Bey released with Nickleback and went to one. First of all Bey is homegrown and an American favorite with 15 years in the game of course she would have a strong US fanbase. Tell Bey to release with Susan Boyle,Taylor Swift and Adele and lets see where she stand.

  272. rozel November 23, 2011

    wow did I hear someone say there is no world charts? wow how narrow minded Americans can be. Thinking they are the most important in the world and there are no other charts that matter but the USA charts. SMH. even Sam recognized the world charts when he posted that Adele was sitting on top of it a few weeks ago. I guess its only irrelevant and unimportant when rihanna is on it.

  273. julie November 23, 2011

    RihannaNavy buying CD’s and downloading her singlers they must have alot of money to spend like that around Christmas time.

    Let me say one thing, the same way Rihanna got her fame/mega star is the same way it’s going to be taken away from her. Meaning using the situation & CB each and every time a new CD or song was to come out. The table will be turning very soon. The US they say is not like other countires. When you get a #1 single or CD in the other counties by selling much less then in the US.

  274. ThankMeLater November 23, 2011

    all rihanna’s albums are good from start to finish. IF you’re not a fan I don’t expect you to be listening to her albums let alone knowing if it was good from start to finish.

  277. PhlyGerl November 23, 2011

    Not ONLY young girls like Rihanna. I’m a grown woman and I enjoy her music immensely! LOVES IT!

    As for the lyrical content, anyone ACTUALLY LISTEN to most of the artists out now? Even old-school artists? Their lyrics aren’t peachy clean either. I don’t hear anyone complaining here about Prince (“We can f* until the dawn, make it like your cherry’s gone. Erotic City can’t you see. F* so pretty you and me.”). No one is bringing up any of HIS lyrics about ejaculating “all over the floor” and such.

    As for Rihanna’s sales, I tried to look for her Talk That Talk and couldn’t find it in several stores. Best Buy not only DID NOT have it on sale, they DID NOT showcase it on the New Release rack either! It was damn near hidden. I had to ask an associate to find it. By comparison, Drake’s new album was prominently displayed all over Best Buy and his deluxe version was discounted to $9.99. And one entire side of the New Release rack was devoted to Drake’s CD! I couldn’t find it in Walmart, and when I did, it was not discounted or displayed. In Target, it was displayed, but only discounted $2-$3. Searching for it online is rough too. It’s buried on Best Buy’s and Walmart’s websites and not advertised on Target’s site. So for her to face so much opposition in terms of propmotion (she’s STILL on tour – overseas!) via appearances and retailers, I THINK SHE’S DOING GREAT!!!

    Last I read moments ago from Billboard was that she’s projected to sell 200K-210K. Sounds good to me!

  278. Bey Fan… November 23, 2011

    Well we haven’t gotten the finally numbers in yet…..

    But what really gets me is how can anyone think that Rihanna is more talented than Beyonce…Im just in owe.

    Im not here to talk sells because Beyonce has sold more than Rihanna… Im not here to talk tours because Beyonce tours have grossed more than Rihanna’s…Im not here to talk money because ….well you know.

    But just talent wise. How can anyone think she has more talent.

    Im one of the few ppl who actually thinks rihanna will sell a lot more than 300K…but we will see.

    I like rihanna….listened to Cockiness all night

    I like rihanna. She can sing in my opinion. I wish this album woulda been bigger and number 1. Esp all hype surrounding it but I guess it was released too soon. People didn’t get a chance to absorb it all. Her team rushing too many things at once. Maybe that’s y. If nicki can get a number 1 with amount of haters rihanna def can too.

  281. flipshair November 24, 2011

    i never comment on here but all this hate towards rihanna, is uncall for. all the haters are so pressed that she’s going to snatch ur favs wigs off. I want rihanna to be 1#,but i’m happy for her whatever number she comes in. I’m a fan , and when u truly are a fan u stay when its going good or bad. she will always stay winning ,b/c all of the haters..if she wasn’t a threat then u wouldn’t care to sabotage her by leaking her album ,or dare mention her in the same sentence with ur favs. who u claim ri is not on icon status with bey ,or whoever but rihanna name is typed on every post.bad publicity is good publicity all the hate shows she’s winning.if the bee-hive or anybody else is after rihanna, she’s doing something right no matter what u say. u can bring up the stats, talk about the talent, or whatever broken record points u keep saying over and over again.rihanna ain’t going nowhere no matter if she gets a #1 album or not,so u and ur favs will have to deal… now to address @kimberly with ur filp flop a** talking about rhi fans are not educated. i have a bachleor degree i’m highly educated.. if i’m not mistaken u said u was a fan at one point ,so u are throwing a stone at ur own glasshouse .i guess ur contradicting a** is uneducated huh, don’t go saying u didn’t say it. i read ur essay u wrote all about why u are know not a fan anymore.wait the navy and rihanna are flipping the pages in a book … hold on we are searching for a f**k to give!!flips hair as u type ur tired replay…

I feel like when it comes to having an album, its a project, and a era that the artist should be owing.. Rihanna should still be promoting Loud instead of this new album.. I dnt think shes needs to slow down.. and give people time to get excited for new music from Rihanna!! I love BTW girl!!!! lol TEAMRIHRIH

    Aside from the fact that the album sales have NOT been released yet, why does this “site” have so many Rihanna posts? And why is a #1 album so important anyways? What does it prove, besides the fact that most people (who buy albums) bought yours that week? Didn’t Nicki Minaj’s album go to #1 with like less than 70k a few months ago? And The Game. Didn’t his album debut at #1 with about 90k? Katy Perry’s new album debuted with less than 200k, yet Rihanna is to debut with more than that (and i’m sure she’ll do more) yet all of this is being said. I thought Loud taught us a lesson…
    And STOP using Adele as an example. She’s an exception to the rule, and she doesn’t sell no damn 200k a week- she does an average of 140k.
    Stop making things out to be what they aren’t. Report on some REAL news for a change.

    Many artists come and they go
    after a while its kind of like
    watching the Tides, and then
    theres the rihann’s of the world.
    Every once and a while a great
    r&b artist of rihannas qualities
    comes along and shake the music world to its core. She stepped out on faith and as you can see the rest in histo-rih. It doesn’t matter what people say about you because the man with the master plan has a great way of shuting those who hates on you all the way down. Rihanna knows about that man with the master plans, who owns the cattles on a thousand hills. So many or stubbling around in the dark with hate, envy and don’t want to forgive another person and as long as they walks around with that degree of hate they will never amount to a heel of beans.
    As long as you look to the almighty then you can always know that you could get blessed beyond all measures because he’s in the blessing business. And he says in his word that no weapon formed aganist us any of us will posper. Unforgiveness harms your whold body it ests you deep down inside and it will keep eating and eating you and can give you all kinds of medial problems and that goes for me right along with all of the people that is of flesh and blood. Rihanna has freed herself of things that she used to be bitter about, she have blown a kiss to yesterday and welcome a ner era and time into her life and its full steam straight ahead for rihanna and her career. And her getting a #1 Album will happen when its time to happen and not any time sooner. If the good lord wants her to get a #1 album in the us it will happen and if thats not in the cards well less just hope that her world wide appeal kicks in and show all what time it is. And as we debate her getting a #1 and all of the slanderous hate and gloom and doom that many tries to soak in it will not last because rihanna is aliling herself and getting preeped and groomed for the long haul and people or going to be shocked. Many keeps talking about her looks, her no talented ass and just all sorts of negative b/s all of the time. And with all of the negative b/s comes a new found joy and admiration for rihanna and theres many new fans who or getting on her cruiseliner thats barrling down the waters like a run away
    roller coaster. When others do her wrong one of the best thing going is to forgive that person with all of your heart and turn the cards around so that it will reflect the hate they habors inside for you. And if she don’t get a number 1 album less see how she will be doing next year this time as compared to her many counter parts. This is only the beginning for her and shes just getting warmed up really good. She have gotten the taste of winning and defeats in her and now its on, and in a big way. As long as she keeps getting rid of added burden that can make you sick deep down inside of your soul than she will be just wonderful, with or without a #1 album this time around.

    Haters,,,,,,,,If you or going to keep saying that shes a singles artist
    while that fine and good shows that your brains or s*** and you know very
    well that rihanna can sale albums and you also know that rihanna have two albums charting very well and you can keep your heads in that toliet stoll with s*** because your head is just like your mouths are talking and thats shittttttttttttt.

  295. A November 26, 2011

    the answer to the main question is really simple:

    because she doesnt have a strong fanbase at all to buy her album on first week.

  296. Lax November 26, 2011

    Keep your heads in that toliet stool, because your brains or s*** and thats all you will ever be and know.

  297. Kerry Johnson November 26, 2011

    Just because an album doesnt hit #1 on the bb chart 200
    Doesnt means its a FLOP

    Both Ciara and ashanti had their share and look at them now LOL!!!!!!
    Chris brown(no shade) has his comaback share but cant even sell 2mill ww
    At least Rihanna sell ww 7 to 8 mil (GODDESS)
    Beyonce 4 might of hit #1 but its a FLOP still with ZERO hits 🙂
    hell its out of the charts LOL!!!!

  298. Black November 26, 2011

    Rihanna ‘s music is like having s** with someone you don’t love, you enjoy it in the moment, you get off but after a while you move on. I’ll listen to the songs but I ain’t buying the album. No shade rhi rhi.

  299. NICK November 26, 2011

    I do not understand it either, I mean i have bought all of her albums, they have all been really good–its weird! IDK, who cares tho, she still hott–her concert was on fire & she is banging, i will support her no matter what, it happens when it happens-no shade no hate, they all doing they thang-

  300. MissImpartial November 26, 2011

    Imagine if she does.Early celebrations are never a good thing.

  301. Slimmaz November 26, 2011

    Drake sold more than Rihanna’s loud did but who sold more in the end??? Bey hasn’t scanned a mill yet. Loud has sold more than Femme fatale. Point is longevity >>>> first week sales

  302. Who Run This Mofo (Bey) November 26, 2011

    IM ONLY HERE FOR BEY! ppl are bringing beyonces multi platinum selling album 4 into this!!! 4 isn’t about the charts, never has been, bey wanted to do what she wanted to do rather than going with this gay club music (#oops, generic music) she went with soul and 90’s throwback music, everyone’s talking about party, everybody’s waiting for end of time, everybody who knows music likes dance for you. ADULTS like 1+1. rihanna is a childs artist. talk that talk (eat my p**** music) is a flop. i dont even see ANY track being a potential single.

  303. TeamBreezy November 26, 2011

    I coulda swore LOUD was #1 on the WW Albums Charts for a few weeks … seems like youre just concerned about the US cuz it appeals to your senless argument. Pathetic

    TTT certified PLATINUM in less than a week in the UK

  304. paulsnyder90 November 26, 2011

    This post would be even the slightest bit relevant if it weren’t for the fact that he forgot to mention her most recent album’s total WW sales…which I’m pretty sure is around 6-7 million.

    You can have a #1 album and only sell 150K in the US. It’s so irrelevant anymore. She’s doing just find and actually better than all the girls you mentioned (I presume other than Gaga of course, whose heels she is closely riding on anyway).

    Next.

  305. commanderofthedancefloor November 26, 2011

    America is not rihanna’s domestic market, she grew up in barbados and if news is correct she is moving to my country UK soon. also unkown artist debuted at #1 and has yet to sell a million in the US and rihanna debuts at #3 and sold 1 million and 5 million world wide.

  306. Theman November 26, 2011

    Rihanna does have 2 platinum albums, a platinum plus one and a multiplatinum album. She sells, just not as big as she should. Rihanna’s thing is that she caters to a certain audience. Her fanbase is that of a certain demographic. While she is in the industry she doesn’t really do anythig amazingly. She just does it.

  307. jason November 26, 2011

    lmaooo u can’t compare rihanna and beyonce.. beyonce is waaaaay successful than rihanna jeez

  308. Robier November 26, 2011

    LOL AMEN !!

  309. commanderofthedancefloor November 26, 2011

    rihanna’s GGGB sold even less than this and went on to sell 9 million.

  310. Rihanna is a C*** November 26, 2011

    UK won’t save this c***’s career. Platinum?! UK is irrelevant! USA is way bigger and Talk That Flop won’t even get that gold certification there. LMAO.

  311. Lady Gaga: Bow Before Me! November 27, 2011

    F*** that was cold TGJ. A cheap forgettable hook up. Ouch! That was just mean. Haha. But it’s true. She’s not an artist.

  312. Remey November 27, 2011

    This is getting ridiculous. I come to TGJ to catch up on the latest music news….Not see Rihanna being bashed in every other post. This weird infatuation with Rih is getting tired Sam. I know plenty of other topics you can consistently cover:

    Ciara’s flop albums
    JoJo’s misdirection for a sound
    Kelly Rowland’s lackluster sales even after a megahit single

    Try something else for a change…..

  313. CzarM November 27, 2011

    [email protected] all the people pretending that a #1 album doesn’t matter. To let the RIhanna stans tell it, Loud was the most successful album of the year; it scored a bunch of top 10s/#1 singles, had longevity and blah-blah-blah…well that shouldn’t THAT have proved to the music buying public that her followup album was worth the investment (especially since the first single is currently #1?) Usually when someone is coming off of a hot album, their followup to it is met with a mad rush of consumers who they won over last time.

    Something is very off here.

    A number one album and/or big first week sales signifies that the artist has a strong, diligent fanbase that not only believes their s*** will be good enough to scoop up sound unheard, but that they were actually ANTICIPATING buying it.

    Even after all these years and all the hits, these numbers prove that no one anticipates Rihanna’s music. She isn’t building a strong and devoted fanbase. Her hardcore fans are a small few. At best what she has are nonchalant halfhearted fans who pick up her s*** when they remember to do it, but ain’t at all pressed for it. But more than that what she has are mostly casual fans who like her “enough” to buy her latest $1 single, but don’t trust her enough to believe that her whole album is worth $10.

  314. CzarM November 27, 2011

    Furthermore, the United States IS Rihanna’s domestic country. She may be a foreigner, but she’s signed to a US-based record label and mostly works with US-based writers and producers.

    Furthermore, the US is the world’s largest and most significant music market. Just about every non US-based act who is successful all over the world, but hasn’t made it in America yet, is plotting to someday break the US market. The same isn’t said as much about US acts who are wildly successful in America, but aren’t that big overseas. Like it or not, USA is the mecca. Do you really think Drake’s camp is bothered that he may not be as popular in Europe or the UK as he is in America? Nope. Because the US is the most important; everywhere else is extra.

    That being said, you’re all crazy if you think her US sales aren’t being examined with a closer eye than her worldwide tally.

  315. I Know Everything November 27, 2011

    This is f****** stupid……….. Beyonce and all these other females wait 4 years to put out an album after promoting the f*** out it, making it more about them than the album. If Rihanna wasnt so convincing um but all of her albums wouldnt have sold over 5-6 million copies EACH. She’s gone MULTI Platinum in over 20 countries. so Maybe she isnt convinving at first but COME ON, SHE’S THE S***……….. Beyonce had a #1 album but Rihanna has sold way more than she has so far. Beyonce’s last album to date hasnt sold good so far………….LOUD wasnt convincing? but she had 3 #1 albums off that ONE album……Why should Rihanna have to do sooooooo much to get people that dont even like her? If they’re going to buy it they’ll but it…. HAVING A #1 ALBUM DOESNT MEAN S*** IF IT DOESNT GO PLATINUM. Take chris brown for example. he had a #1 album and it didnt even go platinum yet.

  316. DD1G November 27, 2011

    Beyonce, Beyonce, Beyonce…you can’t have a post at TGJ that questions Rihanna’s fame, music, sales or talent without one of her defensive, insecure and intellectually inferior fans pulling Beyonce’s name out of thin air to make a haphazard point or to deflect the attention/criticism. The “Jan Brady” complex many of you have about Beyonce is hilarious. Stop trying to change the subject to avoid the heat. This has nothing to do with Beyonce or 4. This is about how Rihanna has a chronic inability to create big public anticipation for her next projects, despite how “big” the last one supposedly was.

    If LOUD was the raving success Rihanna’s loony fans try to perpetrate it to be, then TTT would be enjoying the fruits of it and should have moved at least 2x what LOUD did in its first week (which wasn’t a lot). But the predictions basically imply that the best she’ll do is match it, or perhaps do less. Do you not SEE how suspect it is for her new album to not be getting any kind of a push from the last one that you all like to claim sold a zillion copies?

    If Adele were to release a new album next month, on the heals of all this 21 success, do think that it WOULDN’T send people flocking to the record stores and sell through the roof immediately?

    That “longevity” crap you spew is just a rationalization. Yes all albums need longevity, but you’re only GUESSING that TTT will have it based on PAST examples. You don’t know this will happen again. You have no idea that if in 6 months TTT will be where LOUD was at the same stage. You’re playing a guessing game to make yourself feel better because you know FOR SURE that her opening #’s will be lackluster and that at least three other albums were more sought after during this black friday shopping week than hers. The artist with the #1 song in the country (whose last album was a supposed success) couldn’t convince the majority of the music buying public to pick up the ALBUM it’s on????

    Rihanna (or better yet, Rihanna’s team) has been good at catering to trends of the moment and skating on by because of it, but she hasn’t built up much star power or good faith. Her name doesn’t seem to cause an avalanche of hysteria and because of that, I think she’s on borrowed time.

  317. SuxMyCockieness November 27, 2011

    The very fact that over 300 people are arguing in a blog post about the relevancy of an artist first week album sales should let you know something. Rihanna’s true fan base goes hard and are ever growing, and the haterz are just helping to generate buzz. The one thing that leaves me clueless about the haterz is, if they despise Rihanna as much as they say why even read a post about her. I know If I didn’t care for an artist I sure as hell wouldn’t be checking for them. That’s when you know your a hater therefore nothing you say is relevant. Got my copy =) just need to get the Deluxe now =D

  318. AuntieJackie November 27, 2011

    She could score one if she wanted to. Come on now. She releases albums when she thinks they will sell the most copies–which is what other people do, so she doesn’t go #1. But if she wanted to, she’d release it when there was no competition, and sell less.

    That’s STUPID. Dumb post sam–reaching for hits once again.

  319. Dwaynefighter November 27, 2011

    Excuse me, Theman or whatever your name is. Rihanna has 4 platinum albums in the US- A Girl Like Me, GGGB (certified double platinum), Rated R and Loud. try again.

  320. BEYRHI November 29, 2011

    you know its pretty sad that the music industry has turned into this kinda competition and turn into this level of hatred towards an artist who is simply enjoying what she loves. ok she may not be talented as beyonce but they both came from two completely different backgrounds. beyonce was brought up with a professional record producer her family paid for her to go to all these fancy schools and get all these singing and dance lessons while her father helped create her career.if it wasnt for beyonces father, she would not be where she is today, she would not have been in destiny’s child which ultimately paved the way for her success as a solo artist while rihanna simply lived in a small house in barbados, with a troubled childhood as her father use to domestically abuse her mother. Rihanna has came from NOTHING and has achieved so much in 6 years, and to think that people are calling her a talentless stripper just because she cant get a number 1 album is appauling.
    does it really matter about a number 1 album when your albums prove they can have longevity and sell millions worldwide? both these woman are talented, and yes beyonce may be better overall but they are two completely different women and we should be applauding both for their success instead of draggin them down and comparing them according to album sales and figures.

  321. ririfanalways November 29, 2011

    Yall ppl pathetic i live in south carolina i been to stores walmart target etc i did a study now talk that talk is already sold out off the shelves me i ask how many albums they put out on shelves for each artist its about 1000 total i see rihanna albus has sold alot in one day at best buy target including fye music store bey been here b for riri so of course shes big but shes has nothin on janet jackson if any of yall ass wunt to go there bey wuldnt b big if jj or mj so hate on dat n if aaliyah wuz still here bey wuldnt stand a chance riri album is selling fast so as it says b****** talk that talk now n last thing i brought six of riris album fir me my mom auntie myself n friends so yes she will make no.1 im done

  322. Nikkos November 29, 2011

    She may not be able to sell that well for the first week. She’s still popping out 2 albums selling over 7 million and others 3 million. Which is very seldomly seen now.

  323. Felstar November 30, 2011

    Why are we so interested if Rihanna goes #1 or not…after all having a #1 album does not equal commercial success in the long run….look at Trey Songz …had a #1 album …and has he physically sold 1million copies yet? no i don’t think so. Yet Rihanna who has never had a #1 …..5 of her 6 studio albums has sold over 1 million copies in the states. The point i am trying to bring across is that debut sales sometimes doesn’t speak for the overall performance of an album . I am not a huge fan of Rihanna but it seems like she does well outside of the U.S. at the end of the day we all know she’s gonna sell over a mill.

  324. andre November 30, 2011

    I like rihannas songs and she’s pretty cool so stand dont attack me. My only problem is that the way stans talk about her make it seem like she’s like Mariah Carey in the 90s or Madonna in the 80/90s. She’s not there yet at all. Yes she’s big and successful but just a few levels above Katy Perry. I know she sold a bunch o singles but so did Katy Perry (record for most number one singles off one album). Yes her albums sale good worldwide but not enough to make her the royal entity stans make her out to be. Like many people have said before me to reach that status she should focus on critical acclaim, grammies (she doesn’t even have one after 6 album), memorable performances, better stage presence, and command respect instead of tweens’s parrents’ money

  325. 2dhighest December 1, 2011

    BRITNEY MUST BE LAUGHING AT ALL THESE TRYING HARD B******. they do promotion like crazy and britney just gets all the #1s with so minimal promotion. thats the power of Britney. keep hating haters. let me know when your gir’l’s still around in 10 years LOL
