    Great choice!

    • Jahlal November 30, 2012

      NO I wanted “Lost in paradise” as the next single!!

      • BitchICan’tEvenSpellWelfare November 30, 2012

        I love that song too! & it would do well. But “Stay” is just flawless.

      YESSSSS This song was made for her.. sum may disagree.. well (up urs)

  2. HALF AMAZIN November 30, 2012

    I hope she’s releasing Pour It Up at the same time cuz I m not feeling two slow songs in a row.

        12 number 1 and 37 million albums sold and two soldout tours!!! i say she is winning and you will deal

  3. Rih4lyphe November 30, 2012

    YESSS! Rihanna vocals are crazy good on this one. Glad she chose a ballad.

    This single is sure to slay in all the lands.

  4. Hilly November 30, 2012

    YES!!! This is my favorite song in her album!

  5. mkigz November 30, 2012

    So it’s Stay instead of Pour It Up? Stay’s a better song and should help the album sell more copies. I love the song!

  6. pat November 30, 2012

    love it…i’d like to see pour it up go to urban too…that’s my jam

  7. Auntie_Jackie November 30, 2012

    That’s a smart choice. She can obviously deliver the song live, unlike my favorite ‘What Now’. It’s a decent choice, and anything that even sounds like she’s refrencing Chris Brown sells.

        Rihanna makes it a staggering three Number 1 albums in three years as Unapologetic follows in the footsteps of last year’s Talk That Talk and 2010’s Loud by going all the way to the top of the Official Albums Chart with UK sales of almost 100,000 copies this week.

      • Lax December 1, 2012

        Congratulations to RiRi who has now equalled Queen of Pop Madonna’s chart record for female artist with the most consecutive Number 1 albums. They share this achievement with fellow solo artists Eva Cassidy, Susan Boyle and Norah Jones.

      • Lax December 1, 2012

        Unapologetic is Rihanna’s fourth Number 1 album overall (her third album, Good Girl Gone Bad, also peaked at Number 1 back in 2007), and completes an amazing 12 months for the Bajan superstar. In the UK alone, she’s sold over three million singles, and has become the second biggest selling female singles artist of all time (behind Madonna). And she’s still only 24!

        @BEY HIVE , HATERS OF RIH’S,,,
        All of Rihanna’s Pictures are not Picture Perfect and that is what makes Her so Unique and different, she could care less about Perfection but she lives her life to the fullest and not like Some who wants to always appear Picture Perfect, But when the “Bell Is Rung” Rih know just how to dress to Impress,,,

        She was born to be Rihanna and the rest will work itself out in time,,,
        Rihanna is getting better with time Rih has learned a lot about life,
        Career and taking big steps when often times the cards are stacked

    I will say this, Rihanna’s team is not giving folks a chance to breath. They are putting foot to neck. Diamond is #1 on the Pop and R&B Charts as is her CD. Can’t be mad at the hustle but you better make Chris Brown happy cause he has been through a hell of a lot b/c of you at age 23! I don’t want anymore BS!

        Rihanna’s ass started that fight and admitted that she struck him 1st and several times before he hit her back. She was just as responsible for that altercation as he was so stop the bullsh*t and acting like she’s some victim. They both were wrong, he loved her and decided to take all responsibility so stop being naive” H**”! At this point I really don’t give a rats ass and believe ppl should MOVE THE F*CK ON!!

    OMG listening to her singing this song live is beautiful. So nice for Rihanna to have a slow song in the mix.

  11. Peter G November 30, 2012

    Another slow song? Not a good choice. This will serve the same fate as ‘You Da One’ sale-wise. I bet ‘Right Now’ will be the 3rd single fosho.

    • Floridaevans November 30, 2012

      Even though “Right Now” is THE WORST song on the album, it will definitely serve as a counter to the first two singles. You’re right, it will be single #3.

      • Peter G November 30, 2012

        Then ‘Lost In Paradise’ will be after the 4th and final pop single.

        COMMENTER #1
        This constant bash of Rihanna vocal ability is entertaining but it’s not accurate. Rihanna obviously won’t ever sound like a Jennifer Hudson but that’s not what’s appealing about aesthetic or style of music. Rihanna was found by Jay-Z and doubting his choice of talent is, for lack of better words, stupid. Rihanna is one the best female artist of this new generation not solely on her beauty but of the island character of her voice and sound. She’s straddling the Billboard charts for more reasons than one.

      • Lax December 1, 2012


        Give me a break with the doubting Jay Z’s choice in talent, that’s rubbish, Jay Z is a buisness man, he know’s Rihanna can’t sing, Rihanna at the time of her signing was just a product to him, remember he was backing Teairra Mari way more when the both came out, If Rihanna had flopped just as hard as she did he would have dropped her too. Rihanna’s appeal is down to her looks, her being controversial and good simple catchy songs, not at all talent, because if Rihanna was a basic chick she would have never have got as far as she is now.

      • Lax December 1, 2012


        I was said that Rihanna was actually dropped and picked up again because SOS became a hit. The video, studio time and song was funded by Reebok so the record company didn’t see any financial loss but someone they could now market off the back of SOS. I think that Rihanna had a taste of fame so did whatever she could do to retain that hence all the image changes and albums out every year, and selling her soul….

      • Lax December 1, 2012


        you’re son on point. It’s only unwise people that criticise Rihanna’s vocal ability. She is first and foremost an ENTERTAINER. She is NOT a vocal kind of artist(neither are Madonna, Lady GaGa, Katy Perry, Akon, T.Pain, etc), so she shouldn’t be expected to sing up to the level of Jennifer Hudson, Beyonce, Fantasia, Christina Aguilera, R Kelly, John Legend, Jojo, etc), cause that’s not her specialty as an artist. She is an entertainer, just like Spears, Lopez, Lady GaGa, etc. She is a good entertainer in terms of her catchy music.
        She is a better entertainer than the Beyonce who people like to always compare Rihanna to. But Beyonce is a better performer, because being an entertainer is different from being a performer. Performing entails the live vocals, of which Whitney and R Kelly were top notch live vocalists

      • Lax December 1, 2012

        REWRITE COMMENTER#5 Question from Hive,,,fan
        Pls explain what “entertaining” entails to you and what makes Rihanna a better entertainer than Beyonce. Im waiting


        Being an entertainer entails not necessarily the artist’s performing skills but also the kind of props he uses, and the music he releases, and we cannot deny that Rihanna’s music is catchier than Beyonce’s, and more easy to sing along to. Rihanna is a better entertainer than many in this generation, and that’s why people connect to her singles easily.
        Artists like Lady GaGa, Rihanna, Ke$ha, Katy(all of whom are not in the same genre as Beyonce and aren’t as good in live performing-which inludes vocal ability and live vocal performances- as she is) are better entertainers than her, even just based on their kind of songs.

        COMMENTER #6
        Did you really just put Lady GaGa in the same sentence with Jennifer Lopez and Britney Spears? haha How much of GaGa do you actually know? She can sing her ass off.

        COMMENTER #7
        Well if its based on the songs they release. I disagree completely. I think Beyonce’s music is way better. Rihanna’s music is only catchier because radio favours electropop today which is what Gaga, kesha, katy n the rest of em do too. Personally im tired of it. Props dont do it cus i see thru gimmicks. Katy uses mad loads of props but her performances are still panned. Its an insult to say props make a singer a better entertainer than artist that entertain thru art. Rmbr singing is supposed to be entertaining. Thats what Whitney, Mariah built their name on, Janet, MJ – great dancers, Beyonce -great performer. That’s what entertainment is to me not catchy hooks & strategic props.

        HERE’S MY 2 CENT,,,
        Rihanna’s music is for the Grown, Mature and S*** crowd and
        beyonce’s music is KIDDY SAFE, thats all.

    • mobwife: A brighter day is near November 30, 2012

      Yet Adele’s entire CD was one big slow song whining about her ex-guy yet ppl enjoyed her songs and single choices!

      • Peter G November 30, 2012

        Yeah, because everyone was tired of all the generic songs on radio at the time. If everyone stated releasing slow singles, no one would care for Adele. Plus slow songs aren’t what her fans are used to, most of them want big dance numbers to go clubbing to. That’s why this may not sell as well, because she may alienate her fanbase!

    Yes Rih this is good and nice to see you dropping slow jams

  15. HYFR November 30, 2012

    Lost in Paradise, the vocal performance of that song is good, its different from a lot of pop songs on the radio right now. Its catchy and a big twist from all of her other singles. Fresh off the runway, Loveeee Song, Pour it Up = predictable but definitely urban smashes, all 3 of them.
    No love allowed, heartfelt, her roots, depth, moving.
    Nobodys business, retro, upbeat, groundbreaking, different from whats on the radio.
    STAY – SNOOOOZE. Boring as hell, I dont see it being played on too many stations. Im sure shes gonna release at least 5 more singles from this album but STAY seems like a really bad single choice in my opinion

  16. JAZMINE SULLIVANS FAN November 30, 2012

    Well, this song is not on my top list. I’d like that Nobody’s Business and No Love Allowed had the single treatment. Anyway, Stay will be a hit!

    I have always been a fan (not a hardcore one) and I believe that Rihanna has really grown OUTSTANDINGLY over the years! This is by far one of her best and one of my favorite performances of her’s to date! You know someone will always have something to say to try to discount her talent but PROPS surely need to be given when they are DUE! I really love this album but more so after this live performance. Her PR team is one that I wish Brandy had more of. An artist has to have people that will hustle and grind for you at all cost. This is why RiRi is at the status in the industry that she is.

    It s not the most commercial song but that is exactly why I m so happy she chose it. It all behard for her haters to call this a fast food single. Or to claim she s only smashing cus she s releasing dance music. More importantly, once STAY smashes, the beyhives will be out of excuse to explain why 4closure big slow jam was a total flop (the 3rd single. It was so inconsequential that I forgot its name.

      lol why do you even care so much? You don’t like her anyway. SMH Her haters are dumb and bipolar.

  35. Kayla November 30, 2012

    “Stay” and “Half of Me” are the ONLY TWO songs on Unapologetic that you can tell Rihanna sung from her heart. That’s what i love about them both. Those two get added on to the list of songs tha have that true Rihanna soul behind them, with “Unfaithful” “Cry” “We Found Love” “Fire Bomb” and “Love the Way You Lie part 2”..so i think this will do really good as a single, not to mention that the song itself is just wonderful..

    But i think the Unapoloetic singles, in order, should be:
    1. Diamonds (digital and radio; US & UK)
    2. Stay (digital and radio; US & UK)
    3. Pour It Up (digital and radio; US & UK)
    4. Half of Me (radio; US)
    5. Nobodys Business (digital and radio; worldwide)
    6. Phresh Off the Runway (radio; UK)
    7. What Now (digital and radio; worldwide)
    8. Jump (digital and radio; US & UK)

    • Teacher November 30, 2012

      What Now and MotherMary as well!

      • Kayla December 3, 2012

        Ok, yeah “What Now” but all the other songs i feel are just for a push…


    I think she should release LOVE SONG to urban radio , the kids will eat this up and stay to pop radio at the stay time if she wants to slay.

    • Phresh…. November 30, 2012

      NO not this urban s***, just send it no urban, just send it as a single and let it do what it has to.

  37. Pop Royalty November 30, 2012

    that s*** is so gonna FLOP. HARD.

    i know it is a decent song and she can sing it good live and all , but let’s face it , it will be a flop or struggle to be a Hit , reminds me of the fate of both “Russian roulette” and ” wait your turn”.

    decent choice and a Future Flop.

    • Phresh…. November 30, 2012

      i kinda get that vibe too, but we shall see…although its way to damn early for another single…im still dancing to WHYB.

      • Pop Royalty November 30, 2012

        the same in here …. i know a flop when i see one.

    • Jcrewedup November 30, 2012

      But “Russian Roulette” is so good tho!!! “Stay” is definitely a risky song to release, especially her fans who prefer “fun” Rihanna, but I’m glad she’s doing it.

    • Monstarebel (THE UNAPOLOGETIC PRINCE) November 30, 2012

      Um and Russian roulette was a top 10 hit so b**** what’s the problem? not all her songs have to reach number 1

    YES YES YES!!!! Im so HAPPY with the single choices thus far.

    Far as future singles after Stay:

    LWT/Mother Mary – this song is everything and I believe its the best pop song ive heard ina while, its like The pop versión of frank oceans pyramid and The video? OMG would be iconic.

    Jump or Numb – either One of these would be a good uptempo to release, personally I prefer Numb. Eminem & Rih slay together.

    Love Song – not my fav on álbum but The general audience Seem to love it.

  44. JER December 1, 2012

    This better be the US single too. Rihanna needs to focus on ballads this time around. “Diamonds,” “Stay,” and “What Now?” need to be the pop singles. Urban needs to be served “Love Song” and a remix with a rapper on “Pour It Up” because it’s too short

  45. zzzzzb December 1, 2012

    I think she should release more ballads this time. What now and Half of me would slay and I have faith in Stay. She released too many dance tracks with TTT.I was hoping for a release of drunk on love.Drunk was better than cake, ya da one, TTT and cockiness.

    • JER December 1, 2012

      i forgot about Half of Me. I could see that doing a “Superbass” and getting extra sales because it’s only on the deluxe. I’m here for that

  46. Lax December 1, 2012

    On Wednesday (November 28), Rihanna finally accomplished the one feat that had somehow managed to elude her over the course of her career: a #1 debut on the Billboard albums chart.

  47. Lax December 1, 2012

    Yes, her latest, Unapologetic, sold 238,000 copies to open atop the chart, meaning that, at long last, she can cross “Being #1 on the Top 200″ off her list of to-dos. And while she’s celebrating the occasion by “legit crying like a p—y,” we’ve got a better way of marking her latest milestone: By taking a look at her career accomplishments, by the numbers (OK, fine, we’re going to cry like a p—y, too.) So here’s all she’s done, in just seven short years.

  48. Lax December 1, 2012

    0: F—s Given. There’s a reason she called the new album Unapologetic … after all, from her salacious videos and scandalous personal life to her oversexed lyrics, Rih Rih has proven time and time again that she only knows one way of doing things: Her way. Bold, brash, staggering and swaggering, there truly is no other pop star on the planet quite like her. To say nothing about her Instagram account.

  49. Lax December 1, 2012

    5: Grammy Awards. She’s taken home five golden gramophones over the years including three wins for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration, which she won for both “Umbrella” and “Run This Town.”

  50. Lax December 1, 2012

    7: Albums. Members of the Navy can certainly recite her back-catalog by heart, so there’s no point in listing out all of Rihanna’s albums here … though, sufficed to say, recording and releasing seven records in just seven years is amazing no matter how you look at it.

  51. Lax December 1, 2012

    12: Billboard Hot 100 #1 singles. When her current single, “Diamonds” moved to the top spot of the Hot 100 last week, it gave Rihanna a dozen #1s on the chart, a mark that ties her with Madonna and the Supremes for fourth-most of all time, and puts her just one behind Michael Jackson on the list. And she’s just 24 years old.

  52. Lax December 1, 2012

    19: Tattoos (approximately). Music notes, zodiac signs, Sanskrit prayers and a trail of stars … Rihanna’s got a whole lot of ink. The exact number we can’t be sure of (only Chris Brown knows for sure), but according to some fan accounts, she’s currently sporting 19 different tats … the latest, a depiction of the goddess Isis, she got in September.

  53. Lax December 1, 2012

    23: Hot 100 Top 20 singles. Rihanna doesn’t just place ‘em at #1 … in addition to her chart-toppers, she’s also posted nearly two dozen Top 20 hits, including a pair of #2s (“S&M” and “Pon de Replay”) and a #3 (“Don’t Stop The Music”).

  54. Lax December 1, 2012

    8,700,000: Albums sold in the United States. All of her previous six albums have gone platinum, and given the #1 debut of Unapologetic, we’re willing to bet she’ll make it seven-for-seven.

  55. Lax December 1, 2012

    26,934,346: Twitter followers. She’s the fourth most-followed person on Twitter, behind Gaga, Bieber and Katy, and, yes, we’re proud to say we’re one of the 26 million. We like the weed pics.

  56. Lax December 1, 2012

    58,000,000: Digital downloads sold. Yes, that number is accurate. In fact, according to Nielsen SoundScan, Rihanna is “the best-selling digital download artist of all time.” In 2011 alone, she sold a staggering 13.9 million downloads of her singles.

  57. Lax December 1, 2012

    63,077,130: Facebook likes. Similar to her download game, Rihanna’s also tops when it comes to Facebook likes. She’s currently the most-liked artist on the site, holding a slim lead over Eminem.

  58. Lax December 1, 2012

    2,900,000,000: YouTube/VEVO video views. Yep, she’s also the most-viewed female artist on the site, surpassing Lady Gaga earlier this year.

    Rihanna has completed her first chart double by rocketing to the top of the album countdown for the first time. Fans rushed out to pick up “Unapologetic” last week, and sent the new release to number one on the Billboard 200 countdown with 238,000 sales.

    The album is the prolific R&B star’s seventh since her 2005 debut. The feat means RiRi reigns as the queen of both the album and singles chart in America — her hit “Diamonds” has scored a second week at number one on the Hot 100. She becomes the second artist this year to land number ones on both main Billboard charts this year — Adele managed the feat over three weeks in February with the hit album “21” and her song “Set Fire to the Rain.”

    • IDK December 1, 2012

      btw, she’s not an R&B artist at all. She might dabble in it but she not it.

  64. Wendy December 1, 2012

    Chris is all Rihanna wanted since she has everthing. Since her coming out with Chris I have see growth in her voice. Rihanna seems happy now and it shows. . Now I’m not a fan but I will say this, TB & the Navy need to join forces as one now. With the two forces their will be no stopping neither one of them. I know most of TB will but the Navy is very questionable because the hate Chris. Hopefully they do a concert together with all sold out shows for weeks.

  65. Wendy December 1, 2012


  66. IDK December 1, 2012

    Based off her 1st single “Diamonds and now hearing a snippet of this song (stay) I see she going for a different sound compared to what you expect from her. I may not care for the song but I think its a good look. On both songs her words are catchy and deep. I think she’s she’s going to gain a lot more of different fans that appreciate this sound a lot plus her core fans are gonna like whatever she puts out. So I see you Rihanna, I know exactly what you doin. and Im rooting for you! Congrats on your number one album!!!
    P.S.:Dont forget about us URBAN people. PLEASE release “Numb” for us! That s*** HOT!

  67. lola December 2, 2012

    You Rihanna stans are so f****** retarded! I see why she is “winning.” This f****** song sucks. It is boring and Rihanna CANNOT SING! The b**** has no soul and no true emotions. It sounds like she’s dying on this track. She can’t even articulate the notes and she sounds like an imitator. Rihanna has always been the type of singer to try to sing, but never would be able to do it well. LMFAO, you guys are impressed by this? Rihanna’s team is genius. They will always give her catchy and IN songs and then throw in a few “heartfelt and serious” ballads to make it like she’s an actual singer, but I’m not buying. Her vocals aren’t even as good as Keyshia Cole’s and Keyshia has the minimum amount of voice is takes to be considered just a good singer.
