Rihanna Slashes Album Price…After Beyonce Chart Triumph

Published: Tuesday 2nd Apr 2013 by Sam

The gloves are off in Rihanna‘s bid to become an album-selling artist. 

No stranger to sales trickery, the Bajan model has once again dug into her trusty bag of distraction tactics to boost the performance of her latest LP ‘Unapologetic’.

Full story below…

This past week saw longtime rival Beyonce re-rocket back into the top 10 of the Official UK Album Chart with her near-two-year-old album ‘4’. The project’s revival came on the back of the British screening of her hit HBO special ‘Life Is But A Dream’ on the BBC.

In a move that appears to be a direct response, Team Rih slashed the price of ‘Unapologetic’ by a whopping 50% less than 24 hours later. Check out the 25-year-old’s telling Facebook post below:

Being the fair and unbiased site we are, it’d be unfair to play down the success of both ‘Unapologetic’ and Rihanna as a brand in the UK. Indeed, in no uncertain terms, she is performing exceptionally well in the region.

However, the clear reactive pricing of her product suggests those manufacturing her buzz are well aware of the act(s) legitimately at the top of the musical food-chain; acts such as Beyonce who are able to shift both singles and albums with relative ease.

Perhaps a less laxed approach to her vocals and performances will see Rih shine bright like a diamond on the album charts — full priced.

      Its Funny how Sam PRAISED BRUNO MARS for slashing his album in a bid to get a US #1 album

      He desrcibed the move as smart and great and went as much to say that its nice seing TALENTED ACTS shine at the summit

        exactly, but no matter how much of the shade he thows the girl is successful.

  2. JJFan1814 April 2, 2013

    Um….You really putting Bey up against Rihanna when it comes to success in the UK???? I can’t and I WON’T…But clearly, you know Rih is the bigger artist.

  3. sashay April 2, 2013

    This is the first time I’ve come on this site for a long time.and to see the same fuckery is annoying. Beyonce vs Rihanna!!! aren’t you tired of the same old tired headlines. Album prices have been cut for ages in response to a surge by a competitor. nothing new there, and the same marketing strategy will continue to be used after these two are long gone. Stop making up a story where they is none. B******* site.

    • Jewels April 2, 2013

      Exactly!!! It’s really sad how much he hates on this girl who he doesn’t even know personally. Seek medication Samantha girl!!!

      • aishaaguilerakeystesfaye April 2, 2013

        He hates her because he considers her as a threat to his B, even though he won’t admit it. So he posts these useless posts and makes up stories. I don’t know why he won’t accept and respect the fact that they are two different artists and that the world is big enough for both of them to prosper in.

  4. LOL April 2, 2013

    There you go, an other stan war.
    And they all going to fall into that Sam Trap….

  5. aishaaguilerakeystesfaye April 2, 2013

    Sam, u never complain when B submits her work to the Grammies every yr, yet u are ALWAYS here boasting about her Grammy win. It’s difficult to NOT win as much Grammys when one submits their work every year, esp when that person is considered among the best. “Oh, I didn’t win this yr? No pb, I’ll try again next yr”. Yet you’re here w/yr speculations and theories because of an album price reduction. Whatever. And for yr information, B hasn’t had a number one single in a while, so I don’t know why u’re saying she can shift both singles and albums, an album that didn’t do as well as she expected.

    • Royalkev April 2, 2013

      ^ O_0 … So let me get this right, Sam is suppose to complain about this (with your reasoning in mind)?

      • FAF April 2, 2013

        HUH? You can’t submit things to the grammys after the deadlines for the hell of it, it has to be a work before October of the previous year meaning if Beyonce releases an album in Dec., she will not qualify the next Feb., it doesn’t work like that. In order for you to be considered, you must be voted for If Beyonce’s voted for, thats not her fault. Grammys are political thats why new female rappers (Nicki) don’t get chosen because they want her to EARN her position in the industry before she gets a coveted award !

      • jamilaa April 2, 2013

        FAF shut da f*** up! nicki aint got no nominations cos her songs,albums were WACK! POINT BLANK PERIOD! alicia keys song in a minor wasnt after she being in the industry fro 5yrs U BOZO! and she won 5 awards after 1 album same goes to ADELE BOO she won 6 f****** grammy’s after just 3yrs in the industry i can go on! just shut da f*** up!

  6. RICHANDBLACK11 April 2, 2013

    Ms.Sam gurl I have to give it to you. You have an excellent marketing strategies to get these hit. Get that MONEY gurl.I must say us GAYS know how to get that paper hunty………:):):)

  7. Kate Middleton April 2, 2013

    Yessss Rih do your thing girl!! Lol!!!

    When will the scaredddy kat beyawnce release her 5ilth?

    • Malik April 2, 2013

      I think you meant scary . But , Why would Beyonce EVER be scared to release her album when going against Rihanna ? Beyonce has ALWAYS had better album sales than Rih and being that it’s been a while since the beyhive has had a new single or album that 5th album is going to sale like crazy , especially since it’s most likely not going to be leaked A MONTH before release. If anything Rihanna is scared for that 5th album , which is why she slashing them prices . Beyonce HAS never been a flop , and never will be .

    • DIE DOGGY A.K.A KATE MIDDLETON April 2, 2013


  8. JER April 2, 2013

    Rihanna doesn’t need the sales OR the success from one week of a discount. This ho has longevity for 8 years. This b****’s entire career is consistency. And any BeYAWNce stan is reaching, trying, and seething to come for ANYONE for discounting an album when B’Day was discounted a whopping four times well below retail price. It sold for $6.99 opening week, $5.99 Black Friday weekend, $6.99 for Christmas, and $8.99 for a double album re-release BYE

    • CandiGurl April 2, 2013

      THIS RIGHT HERE!!!!!!!!

    • RICHANDBLACK11 April 2, 2013

      Lies where is your proof.

    • . : : h 2 o : : . April 2, 2013

      Discounted to at least $7 only on Christmas and Black Friday in the states, and sold 6.3 million worldwide in the long run?

      What a f*****’ ALBUMS ARTIST.

    • somebody who doesn’t care June 21, 2013

      Your idea of longevity is 8 years? I’m a fan of both rihanna and beyonce but bey has sold more records in 4 albums than rihanna has in 7.I don’t know about slashing prices but bey has had more no 1 album debuts than rih.Maybe don’t be so degrading.Next time you talk about any woman.It’s unecessary.Just my opinion…..

  9. StarrKick April 2, 2013

    im loosing all respect for this site!

  10. JARED (WHITE DUDE) April 2, 2013


    Look: There is not one Pop-Entertainer, pertaining to this era, who can perform the way Beyonce can, live, on stage.

    There is not one Pop-Entertainer, pertaining to this era, who can sell songs, is as followed in the media and the most-talked about and is influential, in terms of image and persona, as Rihanna.


    They’re both mega-stars in their own right and both harbouring iconic status so why does this site, persistently, feel the need to bash one, yet still take the time out of their day to construct posts on that same person whom they “hate”?

    I CANNOT. >>>

    • Music Soul Harmony April 2, 2013

      Actually Beyonce gets more buzz in the media than Rihanna always has. I notice rihanna gets the quickest buzz when it’s fashion or chris brown related. However, Bey can be at a bakery eating a donut or brushing blue’s hair and garner attention.

      • RICHANDBLACK11 April 2, 2013

        This Right here, is nothing but the truth. At the same time it doesn’t take aways from Rihanna spot light. Beyonce can just be walking out of anywhere and she gets attention. With Rihanna it’s mostly something to do with Chris Brown, and the Navy no thats the truth.

  11. Nahjee April 2, 2013

    TGJ why the f*** is my s*** in moderating f****** clowns WTF!

  12. Tiffany22534 April 2, 2013

    Im sick of this s***. I love Beyonce & Rihanna! There said it!

  13. Pressed Navy April 2, 2013

    Most people know how I feel about riri.
    Sam, this is reaching at it’s best.
    Rihanna slays the U.K and you will deal.
    Kudo’s to beyonce for making it to top 10 again with an old album…I’m starting to get like the navy though…where is the new album or single?

    • CandiGurl April 2, 2013

      Top 10 on R&B Charts only! Sam forgot to mention that!

      • RICHANDBLACK11 April 2, 2013

        It was an R&B album right!

  14. Nahjee April 2, 2013

    Sam! WTF! Is up with you??? I’m calling you out on your BS you put my last two comments in moderation. You that upset that people are seeing through your BS with his childish s***!!!
    I mention other blog sites you get jealous.

  15. La Perra April 2, 2013

    RichardandBlack First one to comment. As usual, we kno who the ScAM is here.
    Any ways lets talk about Main Charts not the s*** you talk about.

    • RICHANDBLACK11 April 2, 2013

      dummy . You people are dumb how can I be sam.

      Question to you. Why would Sam make comments on his own damn blog? If you or anybody else think I’m Sam that’s on you.


      IF I WAS SAM YOU PEOPLE KEEP MONEY IN MY POCKETS. Have a wonderful day hun. : )

      • Nahjee April 2, 2013

        Your thumbing down my comments about this site being filled with trolls, Stan wars, young kids, so…. Sam you wanna give me a reason you thumbs me down for calling this site out? We all know other sites don’t have this much Stan wars their all about decent conversation NOT! This BS

      • RICHANDBLACK11 April 2, 2013

        Im not sam babe, I can care less about your comments to thumb them down.

  16. Nahjee April 2, 2013

    Media takeout is better Sam how bout that

    • truth(icki is a KMART, NO GRAMMY NOD, PFRR FLOP, SQUID EYED b****) April 2, 2013

      YOU just lost any relevancy u MAY have gotten by endosing takeout. They r the inquirer of internet. All they DO is lie. Atleast sam tells the truth. It may not b the truth we want cause he hides icki failures but takeout just flatout lies. U should have said nicole instead

  17. Nahjee April 2, 2013

    I mention something about media takeout having a more grown crowd and not trolls That have Stan wars. Then Sam gets mad and put my 3comments in block my comments

  18. Nahjee April 2, 2013

    I’m just saying Sam, other blog sites don’t have to many Stan wars. They have grown people conversation in there comment section. They talk about the subject at hand not cross over and start talking bout Rihanna, beyonce, NO! NO!

    • fresh navy April 2, 2013


      He is soo unprofessional….

      thats what HAPPENS when you given an overtly Queenish f*** a blog tho there always have to be drama.

      Its Rather tiring and a distraction from the fact that SAM is a miserable person.

      Whats the funniest though is his little “ANALYSIS” That he gives as if anyone values his opinion or if ANY OF THE CELEBRITY need business advice from him

      there living their LIFE while he is BLOGGING ABOUT THEM LIVING


      • Nahjee April 2, 2013

        Yeah Sam does NOT get it. Sometimes I think Sam is behind that user name @richandblack11 you notice he was the first to comment? I also think Sam is behind that @truth account to or it’s Patrick, that black guy they got doing Interviews.

      • RICHANDBLACK11 April 2, 2013

        So I have to be sam Cause I was the first to comment. Oh the irony… So I guess it’s safe to say that anyone who post the first comment on any post is Sam…..Get the Fcuk outta here with that B.S

  22. Nahjee April 2, 2013

    Try fixing this damn site up more. Have people make actual accounts so they won’t use 10 different users names. Like @honeychildplease does & @poproyal does There is a lot of people who use different user names to make it seem like its a lot of people hating on the others fave. Other sites don’t put up with Stan wars, they just block there ass. They ain’t thirsty for hits they good. Too many games is being played on TGJ no real people on here, they all a bunch of little 13, 17, year old kids playing around with user names like its a joke. GET REAL STOP PLAYING!!!!!!

    • truth(icki is a KMART, NO GRAMMY NOD, PFRR FLOP, SQUID EYED b****) April 2, 2013

      Why dont u just yo on the other sites and post there. N wants to c your childish rantn about this site when no one makes yo punkass come here goowrl.

        ‘no one wants to c…’

    • Anon April 2, 2013

      The irony is that you’re commenting more than everyone else.

      • Nahjee April 2, 2013

        Cause Sam block my last 3 comments dumb ass. That’s why I’m going in on his ass. You just need to shut the f*** up and s*** your ass down next to your dirty ass momma in that welfare chair.

      • truth(icki is a KMART, NO GRAMMY NOD, PFRR FLOP, SQUID EYED b****) April 2, 2013

        Coffined by @anon… oflmao!!

    • POP ROYALTY ( RUDE BOY) April 2, 2013

      i sense you are pressed baby , and i am one of the few people in TGJ who is wise enough to not participate in foolishness and stans tactics BS , i’m here since 2009 and i have never post as someone else or tried to make it as if i’m someone else , rihanna don’t pay my pills so why i will waste so much energy on her ?!

      5 comments per post is my max and i only use my iconic name 😉

      but i agree with your main point , the other day a certain BEYHIVE member got exposed for switching accounts in here , so…. before accusing someone of doing something you gotta have an evidence first 😉

      • Nahjee April 2, 2013

        You right I came across that yesterday.

      • quetta April 2, 2013

        Yeah, and lets not forget how your fellow member lovebird/kate middleton, etc got caught as well

  23. fresh navy April 2, 2013

    almost winning and winning arnt the same right?

    when you anwser

  24. Savannah April 2, 2013

    How pathetic of you! You made excuse for Bruno mars dropping his album price down to $3 to hit platinum status, but it’s a problem when Rihanna does it. I highly doubt that Rih or her team are bothered by Beyonces temporary sales jump. UNA and TTT still outsold “4”….

    Btw: I heard that Beyonce is dropping a new single today. Is that true???

  25. fresh navy April 2, 2013




    and Bruno doing it was smart and had your blesings hwoever Rihanna its a trick… im dying at the level of bitterness and inconsistency that is THATGRAPEJUICE

    You stay following/Stalking rihanna from Rihhana’s & RihannaDaily Tweets to Rihanna’s Intagram & Facebook account.

    yet you hate her.

    wasted existance is what you are.

    TGJ is a waste of time we stay paying sam rent and giving him undesrved time… gonna go read my f****** book for my exam bitchbye.

  26. James April 2, 2013

    Sam stop the whole Beyonce vs Rihanna thing its TIRED

  27. CiCi Slaaaaaays April 2, 2013

    This site is a one trick pony all they have to rely on is Beyonce vs Rihanna which has obviously ran its course.. This site is so dry you know what to expect all the time…

  28. POP ROYALTY ( RUDE BOY) April 2, 2013

    i just don’t get the whole discounting thing till now , but i’m mad that i paid full price for this s*** , her album is 120 L.E. in my country , that’s equivalent to 20 $ and that’s only the standard edition 😯 , so i’m already paid for like 4 copies of the discounted one when i bought it , i’m actually mad at her campaign , the navy members who paid full price are mad as hell me included. the international navy need to do something.

  29. . : : h 2 o : : . April 2, 2013


  30. RITANATION April 2, 2013

    Just look at the most “juicy” on here, you can tell that this site is mostly ran by Rihanna navy. Of course Sam, is gonna post on Rihanna cause her fan base is mostly on here. The only ones that’s paying Sam rent is Rihanna navy.

    • RICHANDBLACK11 April 2, 2013

      if you go by that , Beyonce was most juicy for damn near three weeks. So what’s your point?

      • Hive April 2, 2013

        mad the only time rita can get on most juiciest is when they use beyonce name…

      • RITANATION April 2, 2013

        Oh yeah.. I forgot about beehives. Well.. Both of them fan basses are dumb cause they keep paying Sam rent.

      • RICHANDBLACK11 April 2, 2013

        It is what it is.

  31. Lovebird April 2, 2013

    Samantha trying it again, I cannot. I think we’ve already established that after 4gotten and Bow Down rubbish, no one, absolutely no one is afraid of Bey. Why do you think Ashanti has new music out.

    • . : : h 2 o : : . April 2, 2013

      The only thing you achieved after was a fourth worldwide flop album in your fav’s discography.

    • RICHANDBLACK11 April 2, 2013

      you are hence the reason you always bring her up. You people are

  32. Hive April 2, 2013

    you better cut prices on that flop album in the U.S. honey so you can go PLATINUM ALREADY

  33. RICHANDBLACK11 April 2, 2013

      • Nahjee April 2, 2013

        I want proof post a REAL pic of yourself in your room next to your old 98′ windows computer.

      • Monstarebel April 2, 2013

        Your welcome & it was ok, How was yours hun??

      • RICHANDBLACK11 April 2, 2013

        It was cool Me and the Family went down to Palm Beach. @NAHJEE, believe what you want babe, you are no one of importance for me to do such.

  34. Nahjee April 2, 2013

    Meanwhile.. Poor drake will struggle to see 30 comments while Rihanna gets 100 comments by 10:00 (smh) something is wrong here

  35. Lovebird April 2, 2013

    H2O, a real flop is being pushed to death by Sony, having Sony money at your disposal, performing on every stage available and releasing 3982874748 singles and videos only to sell 2.1 million, oh who did that? Bey?? A queen who cannot even land herself a top ten. Hell Rihanna did it with an album full of demos from Barbados.

    Anyway we all know Beyonce is over, 100 million records in 7 years, we’re expecting another 100 million in 5 years.

    • . : : h 2 o : : . April 2, 2013


      No, a real flop is a certain website of irate British Rihanna-asslickers claiming fake s*** about someone whose career is EXCELLENT just because they’re full of hate, negativity and failure, only to have racist, fat, unemployed b****** as well as 8-year-old skinnies like you, Sybil and HoneyChildPlease go to their sites, copy and paste their delusional s*** and beg us to believe it.


      That 2.1 million worldwide goes back to Dec 2011, now it exceeded 2.8 million worldwide. Try again later!


      Someone with a career as strong as Beyonce’s, who makes tens of millions while YAWNING, getting a top 10 on some local-ass $1 tracks chart doesn’t matter. She looks for what pays her bills, and as you and me know, singles don’t pay no bills!


      “4” was a flop? Yes.

      Her career is over? No, simply no!

      If one underperforming album in a 15 year career means you’re over, then WTF is Rihanna?

      A has-never-been / never-was?

      BTW, Beyonce already sold 100 million units a long time ago, and they include so much LESS than 75% of singles/digital tracks too 😆

      Maybe not on her own, but I’m sure more albums and live DVDs with Beyonce as the lead singer on them have been published and sold.

      • RICHANDBLACK11 April 2, 2013

        Damn you just ate IT for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner.

  36. Express Yourself (Godonna Army) April 2, 2013

    Downfall of rihannas career…

  37. Monstarebel April 2, 2013

    Another Rihanna vs Beyonce post sheeesh will this tired ass beef ever end? i actually like some of the hive i hate that we always have to fight each other 🙁

    • Nahjee April 2, 2013

      Well.. It’s noting we can do about cause Rihanna navy & beehives are soooo dumb that they like to milk it until their asses is tired and ready to go to bed. It’s a shame Sam is pimping ya out. That’s why I’m glad I’m a team minaj supporter they are a little bit smarter than the rest.

      • Monstarebel April 2, 2013

        I feel you i dont get into these beyonce vs rihanna stan wars anymore cause its repetitive boring & just lame now… I love Rihanna & have respect for Beyonce their both to successful talent & beautiful black woman that we need to stop putting against each other

    • RG2 April 2, 2013

      I agree with you. I personally enjoy both Beyonce and Rihanna, so why do people feel the need to goto war. This is exactly what Sam wants, he ain’t foolin nobody

  38. Lovebird April 2, 2013

    Anyway at this point it doesn’t matter stating the obvious, we’ll wait for Beyonce to shade herself when those numbers for that single come out, when does that single come out anyway? Her tour is less than a month away.

    • Music Soul Harmony April 2, 2013

      Don’t worry about beyonce, h**. Even if she flops, she can buy your life, sell it for auction, and still has her tours to fall back on. Pressed a$$ cc*nt.

  39. Music Soul Harmony April 2, 2013

    Actually it’s nicki minaj that needs to discount her albums to $0.25. 😀

    • Monstarebel April 2, 2013

      lol no not that low but she should discount to 1.99 in America so it can atleast push a million in the U.S

    • Nahjee April 2, 2013

    Why is the hive complaining when they are the ones who started this Stan war.

    She’s only good for $1.99 singles and nothing else really. Unfortunately for her ,though, with age comes irrelevancy. If she doesn’t start creating quality music, she’ll be irrelevant in the near future. That “it” girl reign only last so long until the next b****, who’s more beautiful, younger and unique, comes along.

    If she wants longevity and legendary status, she should study Beyonce a little harder.

      Where’re the lies?

      Beyonce studied the music industry inside out, and that’s why she’s one of the fastest money-making musicians of our generation, that’s why she’s lasted for 15 years and is still going strong.

      Somebody tell me where’re the lies??

      • RICHANDBLACK11 April 2, 2013

        I see none.

    • HOWYOULIKEIT April 2, 2013

      Rihanna has yet to put out a classic album. She can only sell singles.

      • Savannah April 2, 2013

        Where is Beyonces classic album though?

  42. HOWYOULIKEIT April 2, 2013

    King has 17 grammys

    WW sales: @Rihanna, Unapologetic 58,000 (2,670,000 total).


    He outsold the S*** FORHEAD TRICK!



    • Nahjee April 2, 2013

      What site do ya use to find album sales and s***. For real I wanna know?

  44. mc the place to be! April 2, 2013

    But I don’t understand 4 was 5.99 in the us around the same time last year so…but it doesn’t matter comparing a 2 year old album to a recently released one is really pointless do 4 sales even matter anymore? When she clearly has a new era coming on? Still don’t get her touring with no new music. Unless she’s retiring #shrugs

      I just hope you won’t be shocked by what you’ll see on year-end lists . . . That’s all I’m gonna say 🙄

  45. RG2 April 2, 2013

    I personally enjoy both Beyonce and Rihanna; They’re both great artist so why do people feel the need to goto war. This is exactly what Sam wants, he ain’t foolin nobody!

  46. Taeys April 2, 2013

    Damn Sam got his ass dragged like Keyshia Cole today! We should continue to drag his ass when tries to do bama s*** like this! Fight the power!

    • RG2 April 2, 2013

      He deserved it, he’s always pinning different Stans against each other for more hits on his blog. Instead letting it be peaceful and allowing everyone to give their opinion w/o drama he has to start some s***. If you asked me he started the BeyHive Vs. Rihanna Navy beef, it wasn’t just the stans he was the masterminded as far as the beef occurring on TGJ.

  47. Steph April 2, 2013

    Thank God I am not the only one. I have decided not to bother to comment or waste my time here. Every day, there is a post about Riri v. Bey This is not journalism, just s***…in a bit to get more comments, blog traffic and ultimately ADVERTISING $$$. Try ethical journalism, it may not earn you fast ratings/comments but it will earn you your readers trust.

  48. TeamBreezy April 2, 2013

    TGJ needs to start telling the truth god dammit! Rihanna has been among the top album selling artists since 2010! Rated R, Loud, TTT, Unapologetic have all outsold “4” and every damn single!

    Beyonce? Every album and single put out by Rihanna since 2009 has outsold EVERYTHING Beyonce had put out!

    Navy, attack

    • . : : h 2 o : : . April 2, 2013

      LMAO, and “Rated R” outsold “4”s current sales after how many years?

      And isn’t it a KIIIIIIIIII that Rihanna has released 7 albums and still hasn’t sold 30 million worldwide, while Beyonce sold that in the states alone according to Billboard?

      Not to mention their tours . . . ! ! !

      So I guess The Nazi AS WELL AS TeamKristinaBrowne better NOT attack because you and me know how it’ll end up.

      • TeamBreezy April 2, 2013

        Bey is hanging on to sales of DIL (2003) Bday (2006) and SF (2008) … so if you count from 2008 on and count Sasha Fierce and 4 sales they still dont compare to Rated R (2009) to Unapologetic .

        Baby numbers dont lie

      • . : : h 2 o : : . April 2, 2013

        You may add TROTW (1999), Survivor (2000), DF (2004), #1’s (2005) [all of which sold at least 7 million], considering she was the leader of a DC too, not only a solo artist.

        At least she has strong sales to hang on, and “4” is her only underperforming album since her 1998, unlike Rihanna, who only has like 2 smash hit albums out of 7, and the rest all underperformed.

      • TeamBreezy April 2, 2013

        H20 you are missing the point , im counting from 2008 on . Before 2008 albums sold much more in the pre digital era. Plus Rihanna didnt become the force she is now until 2007-2008 when GGGB came out

        So if you count from sasha fierce to 4, Rihanna outsells in both singles and albums from Rated R to Unapologetic

        This is no lie, im only stating facts and numbers

      • . : : h 2 o : : . April 2, 2013

        I understand, that all the albums Rihanna has released since 2009 have sold more than “4”, but that’s just NOT the right way to compare sales!

        OVERALL album sales is all what matters!

      • OhReally April 2, 2013

        That has to be a joke! You want to compare 2 albums (IAM and 4) to 4 albums (RR, LOUD, TTT,UNA). Of Which 4 had no supporting tour but all of Rihanna albums does. In the US 4 has outsold all of those albums except LOUD. BTW what force is she? She has yet to match the success of the GGGB (ALBUM), in fact the only thing she did do well since this era was sell enough groupon tickets to get her tour to gross 90mil. While Beyonce beside 4 has been consistent with her album sales and tours.

  49. IM A FREE B*TCH April 2, 2013

    i love how Sam always says “Being the fair and unbiased site we are” before he shades rihanna lol if you really were “fair an unbiased” why the need to constantly remind ppl of it huh

  50. RG2 April 2, 2013

    Sam got dragged by the Navy and Beyhive and he deserved it. He’s always pinning different Stans against each other for more hits on his blog. Instead letting it be peaceful and allowing everyone to give their opinion w/o drama he has to start some s***. If you asked me he started the BeyHive Vs. Rihanna Navy beef, it wasn’t just the stans he was the masterminded as far as the beef occurring on TGJ.

    Well she is cheap. That should be her middle name.

  52. dead April 2, 2013

    so what?!? they tryna get some lil easter money from the peops with an attractive deal. dunno who’s really checking her facebook for deals and who doesn’t have the album already tho. that promotion is questionable. sure will do some cheap trick on the charts. maybe. 😀
