Published: Friday 2nd Dec 2011 by David

 

It may have under performed in the USA and panned by some critics for its overtly sexual content, but as of today Rihanna‘s latest album, ‘Talk That Talk’ ,has sold enough copies worldwide to nab the top spot on the Global Album Chart.

Array

Full story below…

In its first week of release, the album has sold 504,000 copies placing it 3 spots above Adele‘s ‘21‘ which moved 327,000 units, despite being released 44 weeks ago.

Meanwhile, Drake‘s ‘Take Care‘ holds court at #6 with 217,000 copies sold worldwide in the second week of its release.

Mary J. Blige‘s ‘My Life II: The Journey Continues‘ resides at #9 with 167,000 units sold while Rihanna’s ‘Loud‘ crept up two places to #38 with 51,000 copies shifted worldwide in the last seven days.

Well done to all.

TTT has a few good hits,it’s not as good as Rated R and LOUD though but oh well 🙂

    Good for that sea donkey Rihanna, cause its great for Beyonce.

    Everytime sea donkey sell a $1.20 iTunes single, Beyonce gets a check
    Also, when Katy covers Only Girl at her bowling alley tour, Beyonce gets a check.

  10. bey’knight December 2, 2011

  11. pop royalty ( RUDE BOY) December 2, 2011

    AND THEY SAY she s local 😡

    LMFAO ! in da face !!

    @BEBE

    HUSH C*** !!

    bey stans said beyonce’s RTW gonna be #1 and that beyonce will sell 1 million in its first week like GAGA !

    beside the grammys and how they said she gonna take a lot of grammys home !!

    but you know what happened ” see the grammys post ” !!!

    do not act as if beyonce stans aren’t as crazy as other fanbases 😉 , we all lie , but the golden rule is :

    MEN LIE
    WOMEN LIE
    NUMBERS NEVER LIE

    rihanna is #1 WW now ! AND THAT’S a number !

    you get it 😉 ?!!

    Too bad that chart is unofficial. Plus according to HDD predictions(which is usually close to soundscan numbers), Rihtards second isn’t looking good at all. Michael Buble is snatching all wigs for the second week on billboard 200.

    Michael Buble (Reprise) 250-275k
    Adele (XL/Columbia) 120-130k
    Justin Bieber (Island/IDJ) 120-130k
    Drake (YM/CM/Universal Republic) 90-100k
    Mary J. Blige (Geffen) 80-85k
    Nickelback (Roadrunner) 70-75k
    Rihanna (Def Jam/IDJ) 70-75k
    Andrea Bocelli (Decca) 60-65k
    Now 40 (Capitol/EMI) 50-55k
    Coldplay (Capitol/EMI) 45-50k
    Jackie Evancho (Syco/Columbia) 40-45k
    Glee Christmas, Vol. 2 (Columbia) 40-45k
    Daughtry (19/RCA) 35-40k
    Lady Antebellum (Capitol Nashville) 35-40k
    Susan Boyle (Syco/Columbia) 35-40k (12/1p)

  13. jamir21 December 2, 2011

    wow congratulations !

    But i have to say that her AMERICAN fans TALK THAT TALK !

    Instead of WALKING THAT WALK…unlike her BRITISH FANS !

  14. Kingphoenix December 2, 2011

    @Beyonka I see someone has been visiting stanwars.com. lol

  15. Clerrck December 2, 2011

    Seen the predictions for next week in the states and Mary J. Blige beats her (and Nickelback’s too) ass BIG TIME !!

    Go Cop MY LIFE II : The Journey Continues NOW !!!

  16. The G-List Society December 2, 2011

    Queen Rihanna does not NEED a #1 album in the U.S. when she has #11 U.S. singles (and counting). Rihanna is international. U.S. is NOT the only country in the world, but Rihanna is the only girl in the world who slays Bee-YAWN-say, Ci-Error, Terror Mary, Katy Scary, Brit Brit and Lady Gags.

  17. Ms Lovely December 2, 2011

    @pop royalty ( RUDE BOY)

    Girl what are you babbling about?!? I swear you r****** stans are so delusional. Rihanna’s album is about plummet further down the Billboard 200 charts,and the shade is, her #1 song isn’t going to save her. Michael Buble is kicking ass!

  18. kimberly December 2, 2011

    Congrats Rihanna on your # 1 worldwide. Put all things aside I genuinely wish she would get that #1 in her label homeland. It is the major market and what is focused on the most but oh well. maybe the seventh album. I hope. Her stans are just children and delusional and always use the little she has to down other talented artists and even icons, Hence the reason sometimes they fall on their asses.

  19. Onyx December 2, 2011

    What people need to know is that is ok to have a number one album on the US, i’m an American by the way, but what is really important are Global Chart, it shows how much the World loves the artist and how big is their popularity across the world, just because you don’t have an US number 1 Album doesnt mean the album is a flop. Madonna 1998 Album “Ray of Light” was a Worldwide Success including the USA and its considered to be one of the greatest albums ever and was only Number 2 in the US behind Titanic Soundtrack, i mean Talk That Talk is a successful album all around the world.

  20. Ms Lovely December 2, 2011

    LMAO @ Rihanna stans still spewing that foolishness about Being international. Get the f*** outta here with that mess. Whether you like it or not, America has the biggest music market in the world. The most competitive. Why do you think foreign acts try to break in to the American music market if it didn’t matter?!? Broke Navy are so clueless!

  21. pop royalty ( RUDE BOY) December 2, 2011

    @MS lovely :

    michael WHO 😯 ?!

    it is Xmas and those artists are only get-activated in that season before their expiration date !!

    he is that type of artist , SEASONAL artist ! after that season , he will go to his cave ! 😆

    rihanna is available 4 seasons a year 😉 , see LOUD WW sales and how it keep on selling copies everyday !!

  22. kimberly December 2, 2011

    BTW Michael Buble even throw nickleback ass down the charts and everyone else follow. but soon adele will still take her top 5 spot. Rihanna will be moving from 3 to 7 and I remember this one stan throwing shade at gaga drop on the charts. Every dog has it’s day ……..

  23. Ms Lovely December 2, 2011

    There’s no such thing as a global chart. That chart is unofficial and irrelevant to music industry. I’m here for official charts from the bigger music markets. Too bad R****** is about to stumble further down the charts.

  24. jamir21 December 2, 2011

    But anyway congratulations to my sister (Rihanna) !

    @ Kimberly

    Agree

  25. jamir21 December 2, 2011

    B**** shut up !

  26. pop royalty ( RUDE BOY) December 2, 2011

    @kim-saggy-c*** :

    F*** AMERICANS !

    they can enjoy #1( in US ) FLOPS !! see F.A.M.E !!

    see T-pain

    and other FLOPPED US acts

    we are WORLD-WIDE !

    #1 WW >> FLOP WW and #1 in US because you were the hottest in that week !

    and rihanna will still TRIPLE your fav’s sales !! no matter how many SINGLES your fav gonna release 😉

    it’s PAINFUL to see , huh 😉 !!?

  27. kimberly December 2, 2011

    As much as the navy thinks that a #1 single is great. Don’t you think a #1 album would be great too. STFU and stop making excuses about market……..

  28. Nahjee December 2, 2011

    ATTEN: that kreayshawn Stan is here she is on tha Nicki post… Be aware if tha troll come on this post she is not really a kresy Stan she is being paid to make her look bad people don’t fall for her Stan s***

  29. BeBeJuJu December 2, 2011

    dear @pop royalty,u see this is why i don’t like commenting on posts pertaining to Rihanna because her CRAZY ASS STANS(EXAMPLE YOU) bring out the MADEA in me! BUT I WILL NOT GO THERE SO don’t push it honey bunch! so because im not praising rihanna im a c***? shoot,i even said congrats! geez!
    i actually am starting to like rihanna but u CRAZY ASS STANS push me away with your arrogant selves! u know people were calling 4 all sorts of flop but with Rihanna excuses upon excuses will be made! she and Bey are the biggest black pop stars of today,maybe along with Alicia Keys and are pretty much on the same level of stardom with Beyonce being slightly bigger so i expect if u gonna drag Beyonce by her blond lacefront when her album doesn’t sell as amazingly as expected,drag Rihanna too by her blond wig when she fails to meet expectations! TTT FAILED TO HIT #1 in the US(were her single is number 1 and has a pretty big following) and only sold 197k in the first week,if 4 flopped,and so did TTT! point blank period! and as can be seen,didn’t sell that amazingly WW too especially with A GLOBAL HIT ON THE WAVES.now i know those numbers definitely don’t lie! (p.s if u gonna reply,then reply me with something WITH substance coz if not,then the discussion ends now) Class is dismissed 😀 goodday!

  31. Ms Lovely December 2, 2011

    @pop royalty ( RUDE BOY)

    Girl have several seats! Michael buble is legendary and has been in the game longer with tons of worldwide recognition and impact than that talentless heffa you stan for.

    Loud has been on the charts for over year, and has only barely scanned 1.5mil(according to soundscan) and has already been outsold by Nicki,Adele and Gaga. It’s intentional sales(5mil+) is nothing to write home about, considering it’s extensive promotion and hits.

  32. TrucieBedford December 2, 2011

    lol. pure genius I say. love the album though. sorry sam, you couldn’t sway me!

  33. Girrrl December 2, 2011

    Lmao at the bey stans still standing behind 4closure. Didn’t Loud outsell it this week on the ww chart. Doesn’t TTT have 2 hits and 4closure still has none? I thought the Grammy snub would have humbled y’all but y’all still wanna rumble.

    Where is Here I Flopped on any chart? The UK version didn’t debut in the top 40. The us version has sold less than TTT and TTT just came out.

    7 Grammy nominations >>>>>3. (Kelly and Bey conlmbined)
    3 $#1 hits on loud 1 #1 on ttt so far>>>>>none from 4closure nor here I flopped.

    Dismissed!

  34. pop royalty ( RUDE BOY) December 2, 2011

    @KIMBERLY :

    #1 in US is good , but not ESSENTIAL ! it doesn’t mean your album is great or reflect any thing ” practically” ! it only reflect that you were the one the ppl bought your album the most cuz you were the hottest then !!!

    especially when your album can TRIPLE other ” #1 in US” albums 😉

    so if a non-#1 in US – album is bringing me more money ” plus #1 singles” , why should i care ?!!

    why should we care ?!!!

    so STFU and be quiet ! go take your medications or sit on a d**** !! 😆

  35. Rihanna Stans = Broke Navy December 2, 2011

    @pop royalty ( RUDE BOY)

    Yes girl,chant and sing in denial. You will have to deal with the fact that there’s no such thing as a global worldwide charts.

    Dead @ R****** stans pushing for that international agenda, when Rihanna Worldwide tour stay under performing in America with lackluster album sales. Yeah…disposable hot 100 hits is all y’all have

  36. jamir21 December 2, 2011

    @ Kimberly

    Yes I will love a No.1 album for Rhi !

    @ Pop Royalty

    Slow down boy you `bout to drown !

  37. pop royalty ( RUDE BOY) December 2, 2011

    @BEBE :

    you ” if you were healthy mentally ” should not love the artist based on the attitude of his/her fans !

    and based on your gravatar , you are a beyonce stan , most of her fans are known to be having the “ghetto” attitude ! so based on your theory , beyonce should not be loved !!!

    so don’t play that ” the navy is cocky” CD , it won’t play in my CD-player !

    that’s was the first point !

    the second point is :

    i stan for the artist , not her success !!

    and her albums sell on the long run ! starting with a sleepy start !! ending with ” one of the best selling albums of the year” !

    !!!!

    How many times we have to say this:

    US charts are important- but that doesn’t make an album good, I am an American and i know for sure that we have a lost garbage Music that were number 1 in our charts. Global charts defines an Artist.

    @Girrrl

    Instead of worrying about 4(that’s 60k away from crossing the 1mil mark without smash hits), worry about flop that flop that’s about to plummet down the charts in it’s second week. LOL @ grammy nominations, the shade R****** won’t be seeing any of those Grammys(especially the solo nomination), this is Adele year,and R****** is just a category filler. Stay mad and bothered!

BUT im a huge FAN yes! huge to the point that i know her birthday,but not the point were i go defending her like a person i know personally like YOU DO WITH RIHANNA! i always criticize her if i don’t like what she’s giving me like i did with the direction of this 4 era,it was a mess in terms of single choice and the like and she ended up destroying a good album with poor management,but yeah,with the stans they will always find the positives in their fave’s,i find it scary! doesn’t stan come from STALKER AND FAN? yeah,not a good look! kinda like you with Rihanna,but honestly,i’m done now….toodles 🙂

  47. Rihanna Stans = Broke Navy December 2, 2011

    @S*** (U MAD?)

    Rihanna is all smoke and screens. Nothing of hers adds up to global worldwide mega superstar. If she was such a huge star, why didn’t she headline the glastobury music festival(the biggest music festival)?!? I mean where is her 100mil+ grossing worldwide tour(Beyonce and Gaga both have 1)?!? Where are her tv specials on a major tv networks(Gaga and Bey have several)?!? All the topnotch female singers all have #1 albums in the biggest music market in the world, RIhanna still can’t secure 1 after 6 tries. RIhanna = hype and no talent or substance

    You can’t be that stupid! Comparing a year old album to an album that’s been only out for 6months.Even with all that, Loud with all it’s hits, is still stuck at 1.5mil(outsold by gaga,Adele and Nicki), considering it’s took Rihanna a year to scan a 1mil+ units in album sales. Meanwhile 4 is about to scan a mil in a few weeks with less time. |I see why you’re mad and pressed!

    Rihanna keeps right on “Setting Things Off”
    In the real World and it is so Hard for the
    Haters Right now and with all of the trying
    to talk her album down and all of the dumb
    bragging about down loads and even after all
    of that they still can’t understand how she and
    her team, navy, stans and Fans still came out
    on top and i will say it again keep lying, keep
    hating, and by all means keep trying to Bash
    Her and her Navy, Haters. This is a perfect time
    for the navy to go under ground and stay cool
    because this is only the tip of the Iceburg, and
    This time Right now we know that Rih has the
    will and desire to do the right thing. And many
    already know that she and her Navy do not have
    ever settle for the mess the haters or trying to sell.

    I also took a peek at BIllboard and stumbled upon this article!!

    ———————————————————————————————————
    From Billboard:
    RIHANNA-MANIA? MAYBE.

    By RICH APPEL

    It took six weeks from top 40’s first play of “I Want to Hold Your Hand” until the Beatles ruled radio. It took 15 months from the debut of “Holiday” until Madonna was played once an hour. Which brings us to this week. It’s taken six-and-a-half years from “Pon De Replay” to—dare I say it, given “S&M” earlier this year— Rihanna’s domination. She has at least 25 songs in play, most notably the No. 1 “We Found Love,” second single “You Da One” and other tracks on new album Talk That Talk also getting spins. Along with songs from last album Loud (including “S&M”) and the earlier hits under her “Umbrella,” there are Rihanna’s multiple guest shots: She’s currently on Drake’s “Take Care,” Nicki Minaj’s “Fly” and Coldplay’s “Princess of China,” and past collaborations include Eminem’s “Love the Way You Lie,” T.I.’s “Live Your Life” and Jay-Z’s “Run This Town.” A quick look at station logs through Nielsen BDS proves the rarity of a non-Rihanna hour at radio. This isn’t like the Beatles or Madonna blowups, where both acts were relatively new. Rather, it’s a success story built over time. It’s a bit reminiscent of Mariah Carey in the ’90s, except few of her songs had the staying power of Rihanna’s, and that was an era when top 40 was musically confused, with grunge and gangsta in the mix. Setting Rihanna apart from other artists who have ever taken over top 40: She doesn’t like taking time off. A hit every few months. An album a year, if you count the “Reloaded” version of Good Girl Gone Bad. (You should, since it added “Take a Bow” and “Disturbia” to the five hits on the original.) Between projects, she’s always managed to steal the show on someone else’s hit, as was the case on last year’s “Lie.” And she’s always managed to recover from missteps like “Shut Up and Drive” and “California King Bed.” With this level of exposure comes a concern for overexposure, like the type that did in the Bee Gees after Saturday Night Fever. With the lyrical direction taken by Talk, there’s also concern that Rihanna could push the envelope too far—the way Madonna may have in her “Justify My Love”/“Erotica” phase. Should neither of the above get in her way, Rihanna could keep delivering No. 1s on the Billboard Hot 100, challenging the Beatles’ total of 20. At the rate she’s going, she’ll get there by 2014. If her attitude and drive match those found in her lyrics, then, to quote “Cheers (Drink to That)”: “It’s only up from here, no downward spiral.” So, cheers to Rihanna on joining an exclusive club of top artists at top 40. I—and a lot of folks at Def Jam—drink to that.

    The music loves and adores Rihanna and she have got the credits to prove
    it. Now keep trying to make something out of a #1 for that bb 200 chart if you have a working brain you see that bb keep including her name in their articles that they have posted for all of the excitement around her name this wee.

    Bey aint thinking about that no talent girl. Be sang at the oscars three times, glastonbury, the inaguration, she is on her 3 Rd fragrance. Beyonce sells albums, rihanna sells singles. Now haters fall back and watch bey on 20/20 tonite talk about her first child with hov. Bey is the best. She sang at the kennedy center for royalty twice. Riri will.never get that honor. oh navy fans shell be on abcs 20/20 at ten tonite. Bee is global, and ww. By the way didnt ri ri call be this week crying cause she was exhausted on her tour. Bey is a pro at it. Dont believe me look it up. Beyonce is a global icon. Yall better ask somebody. Rihanna is a fraud singles artist. Im talking overall accomplishments. Did yall not see billboard tribute from michelle obama,bono,and lady gaga. Clint eastwood, A star is born. Nuff said. Navy riri no competition. And thats whats real.

    talking to Last week when she needed
    some one to talk too, Yes it was Bey
    and Bey gave Rih good sound advice and
    why don’t you Nutt Cases Realize that these
    Women Respect each Other in a big way and
    leave the b/s out of the comments, They both
    have got their own Lanes and everybody and their
    dozen Dogs and Cats Know that there’s no Beef
    between the Two Super Stars, Therefore trying to Pit
    one aganist is a Lost of Time and Energy Learn
    how to Love both of them and be Happy that they or
    both good at what they do and both or needed in the
    Entertainment Industry. Beyonce Older and well bread
    in her Arts & Crafts and Rihanna Younger full of energy
    and still Learning and Perfecting Her Crafts and when RIHANNA Does great that is a good Reflection on Beyonce & Jayz. And if you take your head out of the Skunks ass then you will try and think back to that Dreadful Night on a Dark Night And the First people’s House Rihanna was at was Beyonce’s and Jayz, They all love and Respect each Others and i am beginning to think that the people who is often times trying to keep s*** going or straight up FAKES, AND JUST DELIBEERETLY TRYING TO CAUSE TROUBLE BETWEEN THE FAN BASES.

Didnt riri call bey last week crying cause she couldnt handle the tour. If u dont believe me look it up. Bey is a pro at her talent. Third fragrance, new movie, new baby, with her husband hov. To all haters bey will be on abc 20/20 tonite at 10 to talk about hubby hov and new baby. Bee worth 300 million and husband is almost a billionaire. Bey is a global icon. Its King B. Now.

Chile please, bee flipped her damn hair when she got that award. Now she rubbing her belly, sitting pretty, still winning awards(amas last week) and collecting her checks from pulse perfume. It smells good tooo. Sighs,.flips hair and casually walks out of thread.

    She can’t be caring much for that.
    She needs that worldwide number 1.

    And she is losing her footing, ‘You Da One’ decreased in the charts and she was booed at her latest tour date in London.

    She needs to up her game and play her cards right.
    Which will mean taking a break soon.

    I think she should shoot loads of videos now. She shot ‘You Da One’, she should shoot for ‘Talk That Talk’, ‘Cockiness’, ‘Birthday Cake’, ‘Where Have You Been’ and ‘Red Lipstick’ and maybe a ballard either ‘We All Want Love’ or ‘Fool In Love’ and then take a long break!

    She needs it!

You notice how quiet the haters got. When they heard she was #3 in the USA they couldn’t wait to swarm the post. Now that she’s #1in the world. They suddenly gone quiet. Where them girls talking trash…where they at where they at where they at. To the stupid fools wondering how Michael buble is selling so well. Do you even have to ask. Duh its Christmas so of course people will be buying his album. It goes with the season.

    And who is the president to sing for? Is he God? But since you want to go there. Rihanna did perform at one of the inagural balls for Obama as well. They thought enough of her to invite her to perform there. Plus Michelle Obama says she listens to Rihanna ‘s music. BEyonces lyrics and constant gyrating is just as raunchy if not more than Rihanna. People are always trying to push Rihanna to dance raunchly like Bey when she was trying to keep her acts clean.

    Who cares about singing to Obama?
    First he is a flop president. Unemployment went up under his tern, that s why he’s Gallup November approval rating is the worst of any president in HISTORY at this point.. worst than Bush, worst than Carter

    Plus, Rihanna ain t even a US citizen.

    .Beyonce didn t win artist of the millenium (It would be stupid since we are only 11 years deep and there are 989 years left)
    She won the millennium award… which is just the name of the award and will be given EVERY YEAR to somebody different.

    Plus Beyonce was Britney’s sloppy second. She only got it cus Britney turned it down and had refused to attend the show at first before changing her mind at the last minute.

    Damn u re stupid!

    I said it once i’ll say it again, if 4 is a flop but is outselling TTT then what the f*** are we gonna call TTT?? You rihanna stans are dumb as f***, if you are calling these numbers good then you’re indirectly saying that 4 did well too. I think 4 did better considering the fact that it didn’t have any hits when it came out.. the music is selling itself with no hit to hype it up

  106. rozel December 2, 2011

    Talk that talk is only in its first week, so its kind of premature to say the numbers aren’t good. First week sales does not determine how good an album will sell.

  107. rozel December 2, 2011

    Was 4 ever #1 on the world charts? TTT did good enough to get rihanna her second consecutive #1 album on the World Charts. So that’s not too shabby. Go ri.

  108. Yea i said it December 2, 2011

    She’s at the top, and some people just can’t stand to see her winning. . . but in the end I hope that she’s genuinely happy in her life, and career because behind the fame she is human, and behind every successful person is a pack of haterrrrrrs.

  109. TruthTeller December 2, 2011

    Rihanna did a double

    #1 album & #1 single.

    This post is proof that people love bad news. Look at the post with her #3 album on the charts over 600 comments. They couldn’t wait to weigh in. Now that she is accomplishing a great feat, the haters can’t even give her props. People on this site stay wanting rihanna to fail. But hope things don’t go bad for them in the end, because when you wish bad on people it comes right back to bite you in the Ass.

    Rihanna needs to take 2 years off, unless she’s too scared to.

  113. mel December 2, 2011

    lol this girl called Beyonce up crying that she can’t handle it. If the “rihanna navy” cared about her, they would tell her to take some time off. She’s not slaying s***, Talk That Talk is a major flop, second week sales are going to drop…..

    With a number 1 single she should of sold more, her stans always find some excuse for her. This is going to be her 4th flop!!!!!

  114. OKAY December 2, 2011

  115. rozel December 2, 2011

    were you there when beyonce got the call? And to the master predicter up above saying rihanna will never win a grammy, we’ll see about that. She may not win album of the year, but her chances of winning at least one grammy is there.

  116. rozel December 2, 2011

    @ maria So what if mary sells more in the second week. Rihanna sold more than Mary in the First week and is #1 on the world charts. And has the #1 single in the world right now. And as long as she keeps selling from week to week. The sales are still gonna add up ( chaching!) The Navy is satisfied with that. So why you so pressed? IF saying rihanna flopped makes you sleep better at night. Then go ahead run with it and make your bed.

  117. rozel December 2, 2011

    @ truthteller, I noticed that too. I was wondering when he would post this great news, but as usual he pulled a shady move so she won’t get much shine. The funny thing is that these people who frequent his blogs fall for his shady manuvers everytime and believe the distorted stories about rihanna he sells. That’s why they always end up surprised to know she’s indeed doing good, when they thought she was doing so bad. But what do they expect when they keep being fed negativity.

  118. Peaches December 2, 2011

    Bees 20/20 special is on haters. Bee is sleeping with her billionaire HUSBAND not the help. Yall cant stand this girl because grew up with both her parents in a big ass house , and.because she is actually talented. Obama has bey and jay on speed dial. Is ri ri a role model hell naw. Oh it is true ri ri called beyonce crying cause she wanted to quit.her tour. Its alll over the internet. Brooklyn bridge my ass. She called bey cuz she cant hang. Bee is a pro at touring. Didnt bee just get the first EVER millenium award. I heard ri ri got booed twice in london. Jay spending ri ri checks on his wife beyonce. Just look at her christian louboutin daffodil killer pumps.

    F**k everybody that has a problem with Rihanna and that stank infected pussi hole you came from.Rihanna must mean that much to people if they’re checking for her not having a # 1 album.As long as the queen is still relevant thats all that matters.What on earth are you beezwack stans bitching about?? Beezwack is suppose to be bigger than Rihanna yet she couldn’t even get a Top 10 hit from 4closer and stick a fork in her she done.Not even from a fake pregnancy.
    Look how much attention Rihanna is getting from her album.That alone is good enough for the future queen of pop, f**k the US #1 lets see the haters Talk that Talk.Seeing you little press b****** is funny. They know Rihanna is bad!! No 1 album in the US still slaying your favorites.

    4 is not a flop. When u have talent u can sell albums. 4 was no 1 for 2 weeks in a row with no hits. Beyonce sells albums and not singles. Hi hater.

    LMAO this is funny… Ppl tryna argue about 4 vs TTT…

    B******, go read up on all the plagiarism in 4, and then yal wanna come her and say its better…. Its just as fake as Beyonce herself!

    “C-C-Copy that, did u copy that, C-C-Copy cat!!!” »»» Beyonce’s anthem

    TTT is original, and maybe it didn’t sell well in it’s first week, but it always sells well in the end… Billboard is not the only chart that exists, we talking worldwide MOFOs!!!

    Okay Peaches bey has a production company.. whoop de doo. Bey is 30 Rihanna is 23. So Rihanna could get her own company too. She has time. Plus rihanna already has her own entertainment company, so there are many other business ventures in her future.
