Good news below…

With 100,000 units of the album and its EP ‘The Paradise Edition’ in the last week, the project has now moved a total of 3,047,000 units worldwide, outselling Rihanna‘s 2011 effort ‘Talk That Talk’ and Nicki Minaj‘s sophomore set ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’, despite so-so chart positions for its singles.

Serving cuts penned by Rey herself, the album enjoyed a peak position of #1 in the UK, France and Australia while hitting #2 in the US upon its January 31st 2012 release and enjoys a favorable Metacritic of 61/100.

    Congratulations! But she hasn’t outsold Rihanna, Talk That Talk has sold 3.3 million copies worldwide though 😉 You tried Samantha. And Dicki is a flop, not worth mentioning.

    • OVOXoxo January 4, 2013

      Keep dreaming. TTT has sold 1.5 million worldwide b****.

    • SummerTimeSadness January 4, 2013

      COMBO KIIII! TThatHerpesCream hasn’t even sold 2 million let alone 3. Fall back miss b****.

    • BeyWhoUWanna January 4, 2013

      On which planet sis, TTT is still on 1.5, where did you get 3.3 from?

      • Flop Cheeta Whora gave Rob an STD from her 20 guys January 4, 2013

        Actually TTT has been officially certified 3.5 m as of last week from music chart. Officlal. It even sold more in 2012, than last year. It is near a million sold in the UK. So how can it been at 1.5. Just because no one is buying beyonce albums anymore does not mean than Rih is suffering the same fate. TTT can be certified 5 million this year.

      • Flop Cheeta Whora gave Rob an STD from her 20 guys January 4, 2013

        TTT was the ath biggest seller in the UK in 2012. Shitting on Rita Whora who was down near 40. LOL LOL Give it up. It os over for beyonce

      • Bobbi January 4, 2013

        No one is buying Beyonces albums?? Ok you stay with that theory dear child.

    • PrincessTweedy January 4, 2013

      The delusion!!!!! If it sold 3.3 it would have been at least number 2 on the year end chart because, but it didn’t even make the top 5. Have a seat love.

      • Flop Cheeta Whora gave Rob an STD from her 20 guys January 4, 2013

        Well, 4 did not chart in any country. TTT and loud are still selling. So,no people are not buying beyonce album.

      • Aquarius January 4, 2013

        Beyonce obsessed!!

      • Flop Cheeta Whora gave Rob an STD from her 20 guys January 4, 2013

        Beyonce finished !!!

      • PSA (FAF) January 4, 2013

        Idk who dicki is but the QUEEN of rap has sold 3mil copies with pink friday, 1.4mil with Pfrr (which came out 4 mos after Lana’s)

        but nice try, thanks for your inquiry 😉

      • Likica January 5, 2013

        H**, of you know who Dicki is, otherwise you wouldn’t waste your time to respond 😉 Starships and Pound the Alarm are not rap songs, they are pop b****. She’s local, she can’t sell albums in other countries but the USA, you tried though 😉

    • Everyone’s A Critic January 5, 2013

      B****, you withdraw your congratulations when you drug rihanna into this. Talk that talk can sell over 10 f****** billion, its still a s*** and forgettable album. Two singles were good from that album. JUST TWO. That’s pathetic

  2. J January 4, 2013

    Well done Lana, Born To Die is a great album.

    Shame The Paradise Edition is so crap though

    • Monstarebel January 4, 2013

      the paradise edition is Okaay…

    • Everyone’s A Critic January 5, 2013

      The paradise edition is clearly just too artistic for your brain to fathom. Gods & monsters, Bel air, American, Ride… These are artful songs in my opinion. You must be stuck in rihanna hell, not worthy in basking in the Paradise with Lana

      • Touché January 5, 2013

        “Rihanna hell” lol

  3. ƸӜƷ MC ƸӜƷ January 4, 2013

    Congrats Lana.

  4. Likica January 4, 2013

    Samantha stop deleting my comments b****! You know that TTT has sold 3.3 million worldwide, everyone can see it on Meaditraffic site. 1.7 in 2011 and 1.6 in 2012 !

    • Likica January 4, 2013


      • Flop Cheeta Whora gave Rob an STD from her 20 guys January 4, 2013

        So that means that 700k is all it needs to be certified at 4 million. Great! Where is 4?

      • suga mama January 4, 2013

        girl, bye

  5. LTM January 4, 2013

    Talk That Talk has been passed 3 million world wide. Check mediatraffic, chartnews, etc. You b****** need to update your facts.

    • Everyone’s A Critic January 5, 2013

      I never thought I’d be into that either, but she’s so captivating, once she’s got you. SHE’S HOT YOU

  7. @091094_ January 4, 2013

    *deep breath* This is my b****, while I am your somewhat average flamboyant gay and loves all the fierce artists eg (in or order of preference) Beyonce, Nicki, Rihanna, noooooooobody can beat Lana, this b**** sent me to wonderland and back with Born To Die, normally there are one or two good songs, but this album delivered juicy sultry fantasy type work, some of my favs are Born To Die, Blue Jeans, Summertime Sadness, Dark Paradise, This Is What Makes Us Girls, Without You, National Anthem, and Ofcourse the Paradise Edition added some more classics including my ALL TIME favourite lana del rey song, Gods & Monsters which is my mantra, I also love Cola, Ride and American, RANT OVER LANA4LIFE

    • Monstarebel January 4, 2013

      My fav is off to the races wish she woulda made it a single

    • sapphier January 4, 2013

    Once she bangs out WHYB AND WFL ON HER STADIUM TOUR, SHE CAN DRIVE TTT to 5 million. I know it an do a mill this year with TTT. Folks just love them some WFL, and to hear / see that in stadium to 80 thousand people is gonna drive TTT.

    OH, good news. WFL is just shy of 5 million sold in the USA. YES!

    Diamonds has now sold 2 million in the USA laone

    Unapologetic has now been certified gold.

    TTT sold 60k copies in the USA this year and is still charting on the BB 200.

    Unapologetic is double platinum worldwide.

    Pour it up will debut on BB100 next week, thanks to killer airplay and iunes Downloads, Right now is killin pop radio

    Where the f*** is beyonce new single and rita whora?

    • Common Sense January 4, 2013

      Who gives a s*** how many singles she sells? She didn’t write them so it’s the songwriters who are making bank.

      • Flop Cheeta Whora gave Rob an STD from her 20 guys January 5, 2013

        Thye do not earn money from he tours. They do not earn money fro the business ventures that come from selling hardcore in 2012. Something beyonce has yet to do.

      • Lax January 5, 2013

        Nobody gives a F** about who wrote what because it’s always about the “HBIC” Wo delivers the BADASS LYRICAL CONTENT, BYTCHES!!!!!
        And eve after that shake up Rih still have got many, views

    So Sam,

    What about Rita Whora. Heard from the Daily mail, that some girl from MTV reality show, was told to spill tea about Rita Whora f****** jAYZ and beyonce knows. Looks like what is done in the dark is gonna come to the light. There is even talk talk that Rita Whora is blue ivy real mom. Anyway, Lana del ray slayed Rita whora album in the UK and now she wants to beg rihanna to feature on her song with her to help her tired – flop – soon – to – be – over – career.

  12. Flop Cheeta Whora gave Rob an STD from her 20 guys January 4, 2013

    She has everything, the voice, the music, the looks, the attitude, the stage presence. Everybody is talking about some lady taking over the crown from M, but I think that the next in line for the succession is Rihanna!

    From a blog

    • Common Sense January 4, 2013

      A blog being written inside an insane asylum? That basic voice that struggles with simple songs? The forgettable music people forget within a year? The look of a walking forehead? The attitude of a wannabe chola?

    • Everyone’s A Critic January 5, 2013

      Rihanna is a trend, beyonce is timeless, people who own her albums can STILL listen to them. Dangerously in love KILLS every rnb album out now. Hands down. We don’t care about sales, we care about the quality b******. I can’t listen to any rihanna album apart from SOME of rated R, unapologetic may be the s*** right now, but in the next year, I don’t think that will still be listenable

  14. Flop Cheeta Whora gave Rob an STD from her 20 guys January 4, 2013

    Roh sold 68k last week to move 553k. This was in her 6th week. Rita Whora debut with 40k. Who is winning.?

      Rih & Her Navy!!

    • Everyone’s A Critic January 5, 2013

      Are you still going on. The s*** coming out of your mouth is stinking up this post! She can sell billions of a record, that makes her a winner in terms of money. Other than that, she ain’t got S*** on beyonce

  15. Flop Cheeta Whora gave Rob an STD from her 20 guys January 4, 2013

    So far Rita Whora has bee called out for cheating with 20 guys and they includes: Meek mill ( whp called her how on twitter ) Eliajah blake, Omar grant from roc nation, chipmunk, angel, alex pettyfer, Evan ross, etc )

    Then all the hollywood blind itines are reporting her lesbian romance with Chanel Model Care Delvigne.

    The US weekly reproted that she slept with that fat actor from Django, Jonah Hill

    Now we haver her slepeping with jayz. Not to mention peeps from London saying she was always a h** in London town before fame.

    WOW! What away to break into the industry. So glad rihanna never had this in 2005. Everyone and their momma is caling this rita whora out.

    • Common Sense January 5, 2013

      B**** don’t lie to yourself. After watching that god awful Hero cover you know Rihanna was on her knees 24/7 to get herself a record deal.

      • Flop Cheeta Whora gave Rob an STD from her 20 guys January 5, 2013

        ??????? Rih has long moved on.

      • Lax January 5, 2013

        What I meant was they spread many different
        things on Rihanna and Rih came through with flying colors less see how Rita does, especially since it’s been stated that Beyonce goes both ways,,,,and Bey love’s Rita, Soooo,,,

      @Flop Cheeta, U R Right !!

  17. Flop Cheeta Whora gave Rob an STD from her 20 guys January 4, 2013

    was just looking at the Mediatraffic numbers EoY charts and I noticed

    2010 Loud 2.2 mil + Rated R 1.6 mil = 3.8 mil
    2011 Loud 3.4 mil + TTT 1.7 mil = 5.1 mil
    2012 TTT 1.6 mil + Una 1.6 mil = 3.2 mil

    So including catalogue sales she’s sold ~ 13 million albums in 3 years, what kind of consistency? Most people would cry to have an average of 4 million copies scanned per year

    She is gettong bigger, while others WILL not happen and others are fading away.

    • Common Sense January 5, 2013

      Kind of hard not to sell when you release new albums every 10-12 months, singles every other month, and are making ridiculous headlines every other week. I’d like to see her go a year or two without releasing an album and see if she’d still be relevant.

    • Lax January 5, 2013

      Yeah But how many different times,,,
      How many different times has Beyonce dropped Music
      and if you add Her “Rosalind” Performance Beyonce will have one more then Rih has….
      And just think “Diamonds” #2 532,000
      Burno #1 585,00
      Gangnam #3 516,00 Rihanna is right in between the two fellows and make a great Oreo Cookie, Bytches!!!
      Oh and Alicia/nicki #9 301,00
      And Nicki’s Va Va 120,000
      These are all working Artist and they are all doing what they love doing and RIHANNA is holding her own!!

        DIL sold only 11 mill. You cannot count group sales, that mean mel b can say she sold 75 m record. But she did not do it solo. Rih was not around in the 90’s early 200. All trhe s*** you print from beyonce came at a time before rih blew up.

        Rih facts has come from the last 2 days. Her being the most downloaded artist in Germany is from 4 weeks ago. All your bey facts are from a decade ago. Where are new facts. Jay does not own the label Rih is on. Rih is on the same label as Bieber and that n**** camel is not their boss.

        Even if Rih got signed in 1998 – she would f***** beyonce even worse. She would worked with same producers that Nsync, britney and BSB were suig and added her swag and that would of ended beyonce solo career before it began. Beyonce got lucky rih was just kid 10 years ago.

      • Flop Cheeta Whora gave Rob an STD from her 20 guys January 4, 2013

        From 2010 Rih career has been getting more powerful, while beyonce’s has been declining so much that now she cannot even sell on her name alone and she is even testing songs out to radio. She is no longer guaranteed to get number 1, while rih get global number’s with no promo or video.s Rih is a rude gal. She is letting the fans pick the single and mae video. Bey cannot do that.

        Beyonce dont need number #1 Singles, she has #1 ALBUMS AND her singles have more impact and longevity, hence why they spend longer than Rihs at #1. Its quality of quantity. 90% of Rihs #1s will be barely rememberd in 10 years BEYONCE has spent the most averaged out weeks at number 1 more than any other female artist. 37 weeks with 5#1s while Rihanna has 12 and is only in the 40s. Ooop #fastfoodmusic.

      • Dean January 4, 2013

        quality NOT quantity*

      • Loyalty January 4, 2013

        ‘Even if Rih got signed in 1998 she wouldve f***** Beyonce even worse’ Firstly she aint f***** s*** when it comes to Beys CV the above ^^^^ is just a small example of why, and secondly, that whole point is a load of bull because times change, and so does the industry, who could say that Rihanna wouldve fitted in and slayed with the 90s era? It was totally different back then. What a dumb thing to say, you cannot predict/assume the past present or future without FACTS. And it never happened so DEAL.

        They are both winners for their own reasons as these lists prove. And anyway, these lists dont even add up because they are not corresponding with every acheivment.

    • Dean January 4, 2013

      Mjs thriller shits on everybodys career.

    • King B>Rihanna January 4, 2013

      MJS Thriller shits your fav career as a matter of fact everyone including the Beatles 2.

      • Common Sense January 5, 2013

        Technically no. The Beatles are the bestselling artist/group of all time.

  32. My Medication January 4, 2013

    Shes overrated.

  33. PSA (FAF) January 4, 2013

    Ok Lana congrats ! 😉

    • Likica January 5, 2013

      Dicki will never see these numbers with one labum without reloaded version though 😉

  34. Scars January 4, 2013

    lana deserves a grammy nomination btd is a great album

    • Common Sense January 5, 2013


  35. Loyalty January 4, 2013

    I love Born to Die, very authentic album.

    • Saetana January 5, 2013

      Authentic? LOL, I’ve seen footage of Lizzie Grant (Lana’s real name) and she can actually sing so why does she AFFECT that nasty monotonous drone when she is being “Lana”? She is a good songwriter but I cannot stand her droning voice, not a very good live performer either – boring ain’t the word for it ;o)

      • Rachel January 5, 2013

        @Saetana, thats your opinion though.

  36. PSA (FAF) January 5, 2013

    But how did this become about Beyonce, Rihanna & Nicki ?

  37. BEYHIVE MEMBER. January 5, 2013

    Congrats Lana.

    @ the fat, ugly, pressed, unpaid, powerless Rihanna stans on this thread :

    F*** what ‘Talk That Talk’ sold worldwide, f*** “CURRENT” sales.

    If “CURRENT” sales is all what matters to you, it’s not my problem.

    Now somebody tell me how many albums has BEYONCE sold IN TOTAL??????????????

    DOES she NOT still have like 40 million albums to catch up with what BEYONCE has sold since 1997, aka, IN HER ENTIRE CAREE???????????

    I know you are OBSESSED with BEYONCE, but FACTS ARE FACTS!!!!!!!!!

    BEYONCE: 65 million albums
    Rihanna: 27 million albums

    RIHANNA still got AGES to GO to be on BEYONCE’s level.

    And don’t you even get me started with MOVIES, TOURS, ENDORSEMENTS, ETCCCCCCCCC.

    JUST cram a pair of SOCKS in yout filthy MOUTH and SHUT THE F*** UP!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Likica January 5, 2013

      Beyonce has sold 65 million albums when you consider DC’s sales too 😛 But as a solo artist, no honey ^^
      Why Beyonce stans don’t compare Beyonce to Britney Spears? They are the same generation, but Beyonce cannot touch Britney’s sales. Baby One More Time has outsold Beyonce’s entire soilo discography.. oops

      • Rachel January 5, 2013

        But yet all Beyonces albums have outsold Rihannas too individually apart from 4, which is down by like 1 mill. Oops.

    • NickiQueenMinaj January 5, 2013

      As a solo artist beyonce has no way in hell sold 65 million albums!! That is a miserable ass lie!!!
      Beyonce has sold approximately 25 – 28 million albums worldwide. While 13 million being sold in the us. She’s sold about 75 million records globally (solo)

  38. BEYHIVE MEMBER. January 5, 2013

    *** What has RIHANNA sold in total.

  39. Flop Cheeta Whora gave Rob an STD from her 20 guys January 5, 2013

    Just been on the twitter SRP, the production company that discovered rih. They saod, 14 hours ago, get ready for rih second single to drop.

    Where is the beyonce single?

  40. JOHNVIDAL January 5, 2013

    Another post ruined by some Rihanna fans and her average numbers

    Anyway, congrats are in order to Lana del Rey. Amazing. 3 million sold for the kind of music she makes is amazing. Rihanna basically sold the same with all the worldwide radio support you can imagine and singing pop songs. Learn to f****** compare. It makes you seem more and more uneducated everytime
    Born This Way was awesome and the Paradise edition is also great enough, my fave song from the latter is “American”

    • Lax January 5, 2013

      @John Dival F** Yo self and if you don’t like it then
      find yourself the tallest cliff yo ass can find and take a
      F**’n Dive Bitter Bytch,,,,,

      • Lax January 5, 2013

        @JOHN,,,Yo ass think that Rihanna’s Haters and that evil
        ass Bey Hive and the likes of Yo HATING ASS can run SHOT GUN on all of the Rihanna post and the Rihanna Navy is supposed to like it, GTFO,,,,

    • Likica January 5, 2013

      Kelly Clarkson is better than Lana Del Ray and she has better voice 😉 Deal with it. Kelly deserves more attention because she’s an amazing singer, her music is nice and her personality is cute.
      This slays everything Lada has done so far >>>>


      • JOHNVIDAL January 5, 2013

        Why are you mentioning Kelly Clarkson on this post???????? LOLOLOLOL Who said Lana is this amazing vocalist??? She is an artist, way more of an artist than Kelly Clarkson is sorry. Kelly has a great voice, but not even that is that special about her. You know who the real special and unique vocalists are… don´t want to stan for them on this post.
        Lana had big success with non commercial and non radio friendly music. That´s what this post is about and it seems you are mad. Get a life

      • Likica January 5, 2013

        Well since you said that Bad Romace is an amazing song nothing can surprise me from you. Have a nice day.

      • JOHNVIDAL January 5, 2013

        Oh yeah yeah Lana del Rey and Gaga are no damn artists… but Rihanna and Kelly Clarkson (who at least can sing) are right? You´re a joke. How do u manage to always dislike the most talented artists? Bith you´re pathetic. I don´t even know what you´re talking about now with teh Bad Romance thing… Like Eminem with mariah… obsessed

  41. Lax January 5, 2013

    Among all acts, Rihanna’s run to 20 top 10s is the second-fastest. Only the Beatles sprinted to the sum more quickly, taking just two years, seven months and one week between their chart entrance with “I Want to Hold Your Hand” (Jan. 18, 1964) and “Yellow Submarine,” which sailed 52-8 the week of Aug. 27, 1966. The Supremes are pushed to third-place among all artists, having collected their 20 career top 10s in a span of six years, five months and one week in 1964-70.

  42. Lax January 5, 2013

    With the vault, Rihanna becomes the 14th artist to garner as many as 20 Hot 100 top 10s and just the fifth woman to earn the honor. Among women, Madonna leads with 37 top 10s – the highest total among all artists – followed by Mariah Carey and Janet Jackson (27 each) and Whitney Houston (23).

  43. Lax January 5, 2013

    Prior to Rihanna , Carey had been the last artist to reach 20 top 10s when “Thank God I Found You,” featuring Joe and 98 Degrees, blasted 22-2 on the Feb. 12, 2000, chart (a week before it led the Hot 100 for one frame).

        Well, She’s still slaying!! 🙂

  45. Me January 5, 2013

    The album has sold over 3,5 million already. Mediatraffic underestimated her sales by a huge margin.

  46. Fierce P**** January 5, 2013

    FAF: I don’t care what nicki has sold my point was she is NOT considered fierce. So have a seat.

  47. neutral January 5, 2013

    Congrats Lana. Little promo and noone tried to shove you down my throat and you still brought in 3 million. Great album 🙂

    • Everyone’s A Critic January 5, 2013

      LIKE I KEEP SAYING, it’s not about the sales. it’s just undoubtedly a GREAT album.

    • Everyone’s A Critic January 5, 2013

      Rihanna in my opinion has 2 good albums. 2 out of how many???? Rated R and Unapologetic is Rihanna in her prime, and both albums are pretty average in terms of vocals

  51. zed January 7, 2013

    this post is about Lana Del Rey! Stop chatting about riri and the rest!

    Born to die best album of 2012 ! And unlike other artists, when she re-released her album with the paradise edition she gave us 9 new songs unlike 3/4 songs most artists give! Respect!

  52. circulon contempo anodized nonstick December 15, 2014

    There’s certainly a lot to learn about this
    topic. I like all of the points you’ve made.
