Roc Nation’s ‘Unapologetic’ Goes Platinum

Published: Sunday 28th Apr 2013 by David

After journeying to Paris to support his wife Beyonce on her ongoing ‘Mrs.Carter Show‘ outing, ROC boss Jay Z has learned that the label has scored their latest win this year.

A win, that comes in the shape of the #1 album ‘Unapologetic‘.

Recorded by the entertainer Rihanna, the last week has seen the Def Jam/Roc Nation led LP has been certified Platinum in the US for shipments of 1 million units in the market, six months after its November 2012 release date.

Owing the bulk of its success to Jay Brown, Omar Grant, Jay Z, Terese Joseph, Evan Rogers and Tyran Smith, the project’s sales also come courtesy of the Sia penned single ‘Diamonds’, also responsible for the Rita Ora smash ‘Radioactive’ and Beyonce‘s ‘Standing On The Sun’.

News of the label’s latest success story comes after they- in partnership with Joel Klaiman‘s ‘Columbia‘ and Sarah Stennett‘s ‘Turn First‘- pushed Ora’s debut album ‘ORA‘ and its supporting singles to sales of 1.3 million units and ventured into lucrative field of sports management- as explained here.

It also comes after the aforementioned Brown was billed one of the most influential figures in the industry by Billboard’s 40 Under 40′ tally, commending him for his contributions to Pop music via his work with ROC and Quincy Jones Music Publishing before that.

Congratulations!

    • TurntUp4Cici April 28, 2013

      So let’s get this straight.
      She had thanksgiving sales, christmas sales and a number one single and she’s only now going Platinum. The struggle to slay is so real.

      • FentySoSnatched April 28, 2013

        Your point is valid but you stan for Ciara so now it’s nul in void. Sorry. Pun intended.

        Who let this trick B**** out of the h***** pound.

        The same B**** who certified Ciara’s BP triple sawdust. You mad?

      • TurntUp4Cici April 28, 2013

        Oh miss b****, the only mad one here IS you. But i don’t blame you, cos I’d be mad too if my faves p**** lost all elasticity.
        Drake really stretched that overused snatch to the max didn’t he?

      • OVOForever April 28, 2013

  5. jokerjoji April 28, 2013

    This is stupid

  6. caribbean native April 28, 2013

    HMM the efforts to promote beyonce is shameful
    CONGRATS TO MY QUEEN THOUGH
    #THATREIGN

    • Golen April 28, 2013

      Lmfao, what reign. Did you just read the article, UnApolegetic was released last november and it is just reaching platinum status in the US! That isn’t an accomplishment Hun, especially since it is a full out RnB album and had the hit Diamonds on it.

      • caribbean native April 29, 2013

        2.8 million WW b**** 2.8 million! get your life

  7. Hunti April 28, 2013

    I just wanted to comment on The Wanted new songs Walks Like Rihanna. I dont knowo why the Navy is so pressed, The Wanted are dragging the s*** out of Rihanna with that song. They are throwing so much shade,just listen to the lyrics. She CANT Sing,She CANT, dance but who cares because she walks like Rihanna. They are saying Rihanna has no talent, but she is very cocky even though she has nothing to be cocky about. Basically she is overly confident about nothing. Just wante dto put that out there. Yall were saying they were saying it is because she walks like a model and s***.

    • Likica April 28, 2013

      Gurl shut up! You are so retarded that you can’t even read properly!
      “She can’t sing/ She can’t dance/ But who cares?/ She walks like Rihanna.”
      They are talking about girls without any talent. They are not saying that Rihanna is untalented, actually it is the opposite. The gurl they ar singing about is not talented like Rihanna but at least she can dance like her, that’s her only quality. try again. _/

      • Hunti April 28, 2013

        Lmfao..Why do you think they mentioned Rihanna in that song, do you really think they like her walk that bad. You have to understand the lyrics, She Cant Sing,She Cant Dance,But Who Cares because She Walks Like Rihanna. They are shading Rihanna, saying Rihanna cant sing or dance (which is correct) but she walks with confidence.

      • Hey boo April 28, 2013

        No b**** they was talking about your fave #DEAL

      • Likica April 28, 2013

        Gurl no, that’s not the point of the song. Ofc Rihanna haters will take that as a shade but actually it is not considering the fact that the song was made by Katy Perry and Dr Luke, one of Rihanna’s BFF. The girl is not talented as Rihanna but she can walk like her 😉

    • hunti April 28, 2013

      @likica Lmfao…Ok..Fine Believe what you want but that was a good amount of shade being thrown at Rihanna.

    • MuiMui April 28, 2013

      Making that song about rihanna was a good thing they know what they are doing and they are getting the buzz they need and it also will help rihanna. And if rihanna can’t do anything and all the others are better than she is then why aren’t they
      booking stages around the world like rihanna is doing.
      You would think that there was no more stages to book especially since beyonce is supposed to be the number one chick and is supposed to own this year how was rihanna able to book these stages shes seen performing on right now, oh did jayz pay for rihanna stages also.

  8. BeyWhoUWanna April 28, 2013

    My fav’s man always winning.

    • Hey boo April 28, 2013

      And stealing

      • BeyWhoUWanna April 28, 2013

        Your p**** smells though.

    • MuiMui April 28, 2013

      It is a good thing rihanna is on a winning team.

  9. Rater April 28, 2013

    KIL! OKay hasnt this s*** been out for like half a year now..why is it just now reaching platinum status in the US.. Wow.. I see why her fans never boast about album sales but they rely on singles, 7 albums and not even over 30 mill sold WW yet.

  10. HausMuthaAdele April 28, 2013

    Kiiii. This post is about to get filthy!

  11. Monstarebel April 28, 2013

    Roc nations unapologetic? Really sam

  12. BitchyBey April 28, 2013

    Paw zat! Only going platinum now?

  13. Jasmine April 28, 2013

    How exactly is this an accomplishment,just now reached a mill,seriously… I see why the Diamons Tour is a flop now.. She is canceling shows and telling her fans she is sick then you see her partying,when really it is because of poor ticket sales.

  14. 1D>>>>YourLife April 28, 2013

    Oh my, 1,000 comments here we come.

  15. Monstarebel April 28, 2013

    Anyways congrats Rihanna

  16. Fantasias lip quiver April 28, 2013

    Congrats to Rihanna.

    There are a few tunes on this album. But this is the first album that I had to skip a few tracks.
    Rated R and Loud are both albums I can listen to in full.

    I hope she gets some rest this year and releases a new album next year as Unapologetic seemed rushed and forced in regards to concept. Like all of a sudden she’s ratchet now and is “Unapologetic” for it. Please Rihanna hit the studio with timbaland and maybe we can’t get another Rehab-esque song.

    Stop this ratchet attitude it’s really annoying and seems forced.

    • Kelly April 28, 2013

      Right..It seems at the beginning of her career she cared a little bit more but as fame got to her head she let it all slip away. Her highest selling albums was Good Girl Gone Bad and Rated R,I dont think she will ever do something that good again.

    • truth(icki released 1,726 singles and 80 videos for reFLOP and still caint go platinum! Yea b****** i said it NNN WIT!! pops tongue) April 28, 2013

      SCREAMIM TO THE TOP OF MY LUNGS LMAO @ UR NAME!!!

  17. Kelly April 28, 2013

    Why are the Navy celebrating this mess. You guys know good and wel if this was any one else yall would call it a flop,but since it is your un-talented fav it is an acheivement..Okay..

  18. LDN92 April 28, 2013

    What kinda shade…?

  19. meenadelrey April 28, 2013

    Congrats Ri . The tittle is so unnecessary, its rihanna’s album.

  20. Melanie April 28, 2013

    To be honest Rihanna just needs to stop rushing her albums. I remember that one interview when they asked her about her feelings on producing music and she said it is like going shopping, I just pick out what I like. She needs to put more time and effort and actually get into the production of her material, then maybe she will sell more. I mean this is already her 7th studio album,she needs to get serious.

    • ENOUGH ONIKA (KMART QUEEN) April 28, 2013

      LOL! I remember her saying that, but when you have no creative input in the development of the music, you can just walk in a studio, pick all the “for sale” tracks you want, talk over it and let the engineer do the rest..

    • xedos April 28, 2013

      and the so call people who take 1 to 2 years what the hell do they come up with. do even produce albums good as rihanna. it doesn’t matter how long you take to make an album. RIhanna have people working on her songs long before she hit the the studio. she tells them what she wants. what she’s looking for . Every artist recording process is different. some people have to record over 50 songs to pic 10. and some times you wonder if they pic the 10 worst one to put on the album. rihanna just pick what she wants and record and to me she puts out a dam. good album every time. one of the few artist when you put in the cd in the car you don’t have to skip a song. RIhanna is a person who look like she gets bored quickly, so i don’t see her spending one year doing an album. her process works for her.most of rihanna’s album are record at her home with a portable studio. this woman has too many business ventures going on to spend a 1-2 years recording an album

      • MuiMui April 28, 2013

        Xedos and some artist persents seventy songs to drop one album.

  21. CiCi Slaaaaaaays April 28, 2013

      yes, yes and YES to your comment

  27. Rihbellious_navy April 28, 2013

    The shade is so weak it’s not even funny. Last time I checked when ever Rihanna wins something all the people you name she thanks them and said we did.(We) meaning her bad ass crew Jay-z,TyTy,Jay brown Even Rogers and The Navy. So your shade is a majah decline like your t-cells #letstalkaboutthatbugslife. Congrats to the Bajan princess she did it again. #stillgotmymoney #allIseeisplatinum

  28. Nicky April 28, 2013

    Hahahahahahahahhhhhaahhaahhaja MY fave stays winning!!!! Hahahajaahahah

    Diamonds tour stadiums sold out!!! Hahahajaahahah a

    First 12 shows sold out ahajahjhaahahahahaja

    Unapologetic 3 million sold Ww. With only 2 singles and lack of promo hahahaahahhaahajahjahahahaha

    • KEYYY April 28, 2013

      Her tour isn’t sold out….. It’s almost… but not completely.

      The proof is on Ticket-master! No shade… just stating the facts!

      • C April 28, 2013

        Yess and how many more dates will get cancelled? Ms Carter World Tour will be in London tomorrow…. Why are the wanted throwing shade though? after 1D already snatched their flop wigs. How the f*** did this number one album just turn platinum, Fantasia will outsell this watch!

  29. KEYYY April 28, 2013

    Rihanna has bunch of #1 singles…. but she’s just now going platinum? This just goes to show that people don’t respect Rihanna as an artist like they do JT, Adele, and Beyoncé. They can sell albums…a full piece of artwork… Rihanna’s only good for singles!

    • Likica April 28, 2013

      Beyonce is just slightly a better album seller than Rihanna but she could never compete with Britney Spears, such a shame.

      • KEYYY April 28, 2013

        Are you kidding??? Beyoncé is completely above Britney on EVERY level…. and if she can’t RIHANNA CAN’T EITHER! BYE H**!

        Beyoncé>>>>>>>>>BRITNEY AND R****! : /

      • Likica April 28, 2013

        Hahaha yeah right. Baby One More Time has outsold entire Beyonce album dsicography. Circus Tour outgrossed I am.. Tour. Once again, a delusional Beyhive member.

      • Omari April 28, 2013

        Beyonce is way more respected and credited as a performer. Stats are fine but Brit Brit has a pretty bad reputation as a performer and star in comparison to Beyonce.

  30. Connector April 28, 2013

    Why is the #Navy so ahppy about this tho..You guys are so hypocritical, if it was anyone elses it would be called a flop,but since it is your fav she is winning. She needs to take time and put work into her albums and maybe they will actually sell more. She is to worried about staying relevant so she keeps releasing quick singles after single then releasing a trashy album. Out of Rihanna 7 albums only 2-3 have actually been midly successful.

    • RiRi Bad April 28, 2013

      Why would we call it a flop when the last album took twice aslong to go platinum so yes were happy about it, Another platinum plaque for a girl who can’t sell albums

      • connector April 28, 2013

        @riribad She can’t sell albums, seriously, 7 albums in and she still hasn’t passed the 30 mill sold WW mark. Anybody can release album after album to sell alot. Just like price sold 80 mill albums but released 32 albums. The only difference was prince was actually talented.

      • RiRi Bad April 28, 2013

        Honey I don’t care about her selling 30millions wtf is that guna do for u & me????? lol aslong as it goes playboy I dont care regardless Rihanna is here to stay

      • Just saying April 29, 2013

        @Connector actually Rihanna has sold 30 million albums and 120 million singles WW……

  31. Nostalgia1989 April 28, 2013

    She JUST went platinum? What kind of underperformance.

    • KDreamer (Miguel Hit It) April 28, 2013

      When will Frank?

      • Nostalgia1989 April 28, 2013

        Let Missguel borrow his Grammy?

  32. La Perra April 28, 2013

    This post was so badly written its baffling. Also I could of sworn Rihanna was on another label!?
    Either way…WW she will smash she has longevity and still strong singles to release. Unlike others who keep pushing their singles back. Or mabe it’s the radio station declining them. Anyways who didn’t see this coming!?

    • PhuckYoWig April 28, 2013

      You don’t know s*** b****, Rihanna is and will always be ROC so shut the f*** up.

  33. shakes head April 28, 2013

    lol. that’s some twisted post. tryna stir up things… again? how many times you wrote posts like that… tgj? i can’t remember. seriously… wtf.

    anyway… it’s platinum. so… it’s good.

  34. RiRi Bad April 28, 2013

    Glad it didn’t take 10 months like talk that talk… Its like her odd number albums always sell better and faster than the even albums

  35. Lana Del Slay April 28, 2013

    Lana sold 5 million world wide with BTD. Has TTT done that? Nope!!!

    • Likica April 28, 2013

      Lana it at 3.9 million. Did Lana’s debut album sell at least 1000 copies like Katy Hudson? I don’t think so!

      Good for lana

    Lmfao! Okay I am #Navy all day but Queen Rih needs to get her act together. This s*** was released 7 months ago and it is just now reaching Platinum status in the US. WW it has only sold about 2.1 mill. Rih come harder, stop worrying so much about being a bad girl and take time to work on your singles. Stop canceling your fcking shows,we know you aren’t sick.

    • RiRi Bad April 28, 2013

      It was released 5 months ago if you were a real member of the navy you’d know that

      • Likica April 28, 2013

        It has sold 2.9 million so far, not 2.1.

      • Navy Twin April 28, 2013

        It was released last November Hun, I know when the Queens album came out. It just got to Platinum status, and only sold about 2.1 mill WW. Her tickets for the Diamonds World Tour also came out last November and only 12 concerts are sold out. She needs to come harder.

      • Navy Twin April 28, 2013

        @likica Dont do that! It makes the #Navy look bad. Please stop reaching! I love Rihanna but according to RIAA it has only sold 2.1 WW.

      • Likica April 28, 2013

        You are not her stan, you probably hide under Navy name to shade her since you are a Beyonce stan. And Unapologetic has sold 2.9 million copies worldwide and as a stan you should know that but you obviously are not the one. Diamonds World Tour is doing very well, so far all shows have been sold out. We will see its result when all is said and done.

      • RiRi Bad April 28, 2013

        December equals 1st month
        January equals 2nd month

        April 5 th month

        Its sad I have to do this cause you h*** are so basic dont know how to count n s***

      • RiRi Bad April 28, 2013

        @lickia its obviously not a Rihanna Stan ive never even seen this b**** on here before lame ass hive got nothing to do besides discredit rih

      • Navy Twin April 28, 2013

        @likica How the fck are you going to tell me who I stan for. I am a stan but I dont reach. I dont like everything just because she is my fav. I will admit what is true and I wont make stuff up. If you ont belive it just go check the website. There is no point in lieing to make my fav look better,it makes the navy look desperate. It is a shame how you think just because someon e says the truth about rih they are a beyonce stan. You are making it seem like we are scared of the beyhive. quit it.

      • Likica April 28, 2013

        ChartNews post Mediatraffic numbers though. Stop trying, you are so misinformed for a Rihanna stan.

    • Navy Twin April 28, 2013

      @likica Omfg..Ok..Believe what you want all I know is Rihanna needs to gt this s*** together.

  37. Gilberto April 28, 2013

    UnaFLOPlogic had Black Friday, Christmas, a #1 hit and many discounts through the year, but it got a million certification only now. KIIIIIIII. What a flop! I can’t. I bet that it didn’t sell one million yet.

    • Likica April 28, 2013

      Many discounts? What are you talking about? It had a discount just in the UK, while it is still selling with a full price in the USA, it was never discounted there like Pink/Bruno did with their albums. The fact that she sold more than 4 in just 6 months though even though 4 has a generic dance song like RTW :/

      • Mentions April 28, 2013

        @Likica It was discounted in the Uk during the holiday season, it was only about 5 dollars, during black friday,and she reduced the price on i-tunes also. Also, 4 has sold 3mill WW, UnApolegetic has sold 2.1 as of 2013,stop reaching.

      • Likica April 28, 2013

        You should stop trying. 4 has not sold 3 million worldwide, it is at 2.7-2.8 million at best. Unapologetic has sold 2.9 million according to Mediatraffic and 3.1 million according to MusicCharts. It was never discounted in the USA though. Have a _/

      • metions April 28, 2013

        @likica 4 has sold 3Mill WW as of 2013 Hun, after the superbowl it got back on the charts and sold more. You can check SoundCloud and ChartCheck. Rihanna has discounted her album multiple times, and it only sold 2.1. Stop reaching so fcking much, you are trying to say it is almost at 3mill WW.

      • Gilberto April 28, 2013

        @LIRIKA

        What dumb, b****? They were selling UnaFLOPlogic for like $3 a few months after its release. I can’t. Did you forget about it? I didn’t it. KIIIIIIIIII.
        RTW is generic?!? LOL. B****, you’re so dumb. Really dumb. You don’t even know the meaning of generic. Could you name another 2011 song that sounds like RTW? I dare you! If RTW is generic, the whole existence of R****** is generic since she’s a bad carbon copy of the KING.
        UnaFLOPlogic outsold 4??? KIIIIIIIII. THE REACH! I want see the receipts.

      • Likica April 28, 2013

        There are so many songs that sound like Run The World which was a rip off of another song though. RTA was a basic song. She perfromed that song everywhere, hell Rihanna has never performed that much any of her songs like Beyonce did. You are a dumb b**** though since you don’t even know your fav sales. Rihanna has better songs quality wise, I mean Fire Bomb, Cold Case Love, Unfaithful, Stay, Cry >>>
        If you were a real stan you would know that 4 is at 2.7-2.8 million worldwide and Unapologetic is close to 2.9 based on 6 months sale. How is that flopping? She has yet to release more singles. Just because you hate her it doesn’t mean her album is a flop.

    Rihhoe only lent her voice to the album, the real credit should go to the writers and producers who made her sound somewhat like a singer on this album. without all the studio trickery and rihhoe sucking off every producer she has worked with and being the biggest s*** on this side of the Mississippi river she would be nothing.

    • Gilberto April 28, 2013

      R****** is as hot as her producers are. She doesn’t write, produce, sing or dance. She doesn’t put any input onto her trashy music. She’s a completly image drive artist. That’s why she changes her hair and personality everytime DefScam is about to release a new album. That’s why she spends more time bitching on Twitter than rehearsing.

      Bring us the receipts for all that you are saying, if you don’t have stop wasting your time! 😉 It took it 50 years to go platinum but it has outsold 4 worldwide which went platinum faster in the USA. Lets talk about other countries… It’s been 2 years and 4 is not certified 2xPlatinum in the Uk yet? It took Unapologetic 5 months. What about France? Unapologetic is at 240 000 copies there, which is better sales than any of Beyonce’s albums. What about Germany? Is 4 even certified Gold there? Italy? Spain? Canada? Hello?

      I will just remind you of this if you already forgot.

    • Gilberto April 28, 2013

      IKR. It’s PATHETIC. Titanic’s standard is so low. She tried, but failed again. If she has a flop single, her album wouldn’t even reach Plastic certifcation. She’ll always need a producer to keep her career relevant.
      I remember when ‘You Da Flop’ flopped and made her flop album fell off of the charts.

    I really don’t get how Beyonce fans talk so much s*** about rihanna sales when Beyonce is a weak album seller aswell they both can’t sell albums to save their lives the hive be acting like Beyonce be selling like Adele n Taylor swift smh Beyonce can’t even come close to it…..

    • Names April 28, 2013

      Well I guess you can say that but if you were to compare Rihanna vs Beyonce in album sales Beyonce wins. She has sold over 30mill with only 4 albums while Rihanna is still struggling to get to 30mill WW with 7 albums already.

      • Likica April 28, 2013

        Beyonce has not sold 30 million albums, she is at 25. Rihanna is at 29-30 though.
        Britney stan I agree! Both are average album sellers. The nerve of Hive to come for Britney when Baby One More Time has outsold entire Beyonce’s album discography. :/

      • Mwah April 28, 2013

        OMG Rihanna is only like less than 5 mill ahead and she has almost double the albums bwahahaha!

      • MuiMui April 28, 2013

        Beyonce might sell more albums then rihanna and beyonce has dropped as many albums as rihanna has with her remixes and rihanna is still out selling beyonce in singles
        and giving beyonce a run for her money in the albums department and rihanna’s music over all has broke a lot more new ground then beyonce music ever has even when beyonce was the front woman for destiny childs group.
        For beyonce to be the best or the baddest she must never let the likes of rihanna, adele, and britney, gaga beat her in sales of her music and they all have beat beyonce and adele and britney has diamond where is beyonce diamond. What other musician is beating rihanna on the charts because beyonce sure isn’t as a matter of fact beyonce is trying to get a hit perhaps jayz will buy beyonce a dozen hits off her next album.

Now if you add that all up what do you get.. 30million Hun. NO wadd that up with her dvd sales, and DC3 sales and see how many you get. You could also add singles if you want to get even more slayage. Rihanna has yet to surpass 30mill w ven after 7 albums. dont try me hun

    Why do the Hive and the Navy hate each other so much? What is up with all the Rihanna Vs Beyonce comparisons? Don’t you guys know that Beyonce is Rihannas idol?

    If 4 was THAT much of a flop why did it go platinum like 5 months faster than Unaplogetic? Get ya life.

    • Likica April 28, 2013

      Does it really matter when Unapologetic outsold it 2-year-old sales in those 5 months?

      • Mwah April 28, 2013

        Yes because people are reaching when they call it a flop when it has acheived things (this for example) Unapologetic hasnt.

      • MWAH April 28, 2013

        @LIKICA Did UnAFlopegetic sell 3mill WW yet??

        I didnt type that, who dat using my name^^^

      • Likica April 28, 2013

        It is close to it, it is at 2.9 million. 4 has yet to reach 2.9 million gurl 😉 It is not at 3 million either so what’s your point? Unapologetic has already outsold 4 in the UK, in France, Germany and almost all European markets. Rihanna is bigger in Europe, Beyonce is bigger in the USA so what’s a big deal?

      • Mwah April 28, 2013

        The big deal is people calling 4 a flop hon. People throw that word around too easily.

      • Mwah April 28, 2013

        I dont know why you are getting on the defensive when i only stated facts.

      • Likica April 28, 2013

        I’ve never called 4 a flop though, I even like that album. I think that 3 million is quite successful nowadays considering the state of music industry :/ Anyway, I didn’t lie, I stated facts. 4 is not at 3 million yet. :/
        And tell me other black artists beside Bey and Rihanna that can sell 3 million nowadays? They are both successful and they work hard for that, so no need to hate on them. I don’t hate Bey, it’s simply that I like Rihanna and her music more. Bey is a better performer but Rihanna’s fashion and music are better for me, that’s why I stan for her more than for Bey.

      • mwah April 28, 2013

        @likica Well according to SoundScan,RIAA, and ChartCheck Beyonces Year Of 4 has now sold 3Million WW as of 2013. It has sold 2.7 as of 2011 but sales increased after the SB! Stop making s*** up, also UnApolegetic has just reached 1 million in the US and has sold about 2.1 WW.

      • mwah April 28, 2013

      • Likica April 28, 2013

        @SASS
        The Hive were first coming for Rihanna in this post. Unapologetic did in 5-6 months what 4 did in 2 years. :/
        But anyway, I don’t consider 4 a flop and I’ve never said that.
        @MWAH
        I am not inflating/deflating anyone’s sales. You have the receipts, if you don’t want to believe it it is noy my problem. Unapologetic is more successful than 4 so far and it has sold more albums/singles/records worldwide so far.

      • Mwah April 28, 2013

        My point was people going in on 4 being a flop and you have to jump on a whole other bandwagon about unapologetic when the fact still remains if 4 was such a terrible flop yet it still went platinum faster! You dont think its a flop so why even respond? Like i said I only stated a fact!

      • Likica April 28, 2013

        Gurl, it doesn’t matter if it went Platinum faster or not. At the end of the day, worldwide sales are what actually matters. My point is that people shouldn’t mock Unapologetic/the time it took to go Platinum since we know that Rihanna is not that huge album seller in the USA, but she compensates that with Europe and other countries which show her total album sales. 9.5 million in the USA and 21 million outside of it. Have a nice time and bop to this;)

    • Mwah April 28, 2013

      If it dont matter then why are you responding? It must be getting your goat up. And I still stand by the FACT i presented in reference to THIS post about going PLATINUM in the US. Deal.

      • Likica April 28, 2013

        Why are you concerned about Rihanna’s sales if you don’t like her anyway? You are a typical Rihanna hater. The dislikes obviously agree with me and you will have to deal with it, not me hun 😀

    • Cancel April 28, 2013

      All of Beyonce Tour have outsold Rihannas. It is just natural because Beyonce is the better performer, I doubt the Diamonds World Tour will make that much, it didn’t even get any sponsors.

    • King Jamir21 (Bow Down) April 28, 2013

      • Likica April 28, 2013

        And with Rihanna canceling all of these tour dates !

        All? She cancelled 2 shows because of sickness. If she was able to earn 90$ with Loud Tour she will pull over 100+$ this time because she is doing 9 stadiums and her European leg is sold out.

      • King Jamir21 (Bow Down) April 28, 2013

      • Click Here April 28, 2013

        @likica She claims she was sick Hun, but they got photo of her partying it up and she was sick yet she was on Ig on twitter..Ok. Just because you are doing stadiums doesn’t mean you will sell them out. You can request a stadium but she deosn’t sold them out. Beyonce is selling out her Arenas in 22 seconds! Kill!! If she did stadiums she would fill them up quick because the demand is high for her shows. Like in Amstedam,only 30k people got to go,when 100k were trying to get tciekts. Rihannas tour dont ever do that well,hr best tour was loud and it inly grossed 90mill,that is why no-one wants to sponsor her tour.

      • MuiMui April 28, 2013

        And the less shows rihanna do the smaller jayz pocket cash is going to be and what ever rihanna lose in canceled shows it is a good thing beyonce will more than make up for it and things will still be good.

    Has Rihanna found a sponser for her tour yet?

    • MuiMui April 28, 2013

      all or working over time tearing that down.

    lol the hive is still going on on four that s*** was released years ago and it still hasn’t sold 2 million in the us it stopped at 1.3 i dont get how yall dog rihanna for having a platinum selling album when beyonce has one too and even before she hit a million here her worldwide sales was over 2.3 million the hive needs to get over themselves and stop acting like their fave is the best album seller in the world there’s always a new artist who comes ut during her “eras” and sell plenty more than her! she’s just average

      4 has sold 3Mill WW and was the biggest selling RnB album of 2011. It was a full out Rnb album and it went platinum in the US faster than Rihanna Unaflopegetic. Dont try that s*** Hun,her album just reached platinum after 6 months and has only sold 2.1 ww.

      • Likica April 28, 2013

        1.4 has not sold 3 million yet.
        2.Its first single was a generic dance track not an r&B song though.
        3.If it did, the fact that Unapologetic outsold 4′ 2-year-old-sales worldwide in 5-6 months with 2 ballads being singles and an urabn track put 4 even more to shame:/
        4.It doesn’t matter if you reach Platinum in one month or two, it’s important that you reach it.
        5.Unapologetic is close to 3 million, not 2.1. You tried though.

      • mc the place to be! April 28, 2013

        who cares who sold faster at the end of the day rihanna went platinum with talk that talk and unapologetic especially are still pulling in numbers! yall always make sales like its a damn race and what people sell their first week are their final sales no one gives a f*** lets see what your album sale 2 years from now and beyonce sold what is currently 2.1 million it wouldve sold less if she didnt pull that pregnancy stunt and the way she handled the album by poor single choices

    Hive you dont need to justify yourself against the navi, Beyonce is a better album seller than Rihanna overall everyone knows this. Shes less then 5 mill behind Rihannas sales with only 4 albums compared to Rihannas 7. Shes breaking records in countries for selling out a tour with no new music. Beyonces name and reputation alone is powerful she doesnt need 12 #1s or even new music to sell.

    Rihanna wants outs of her Roc Nation contract.
    Jay Z took a nice island girl and turned her into an alcoholic drug taking wreck.
    He doesn’t care about people.
    She’s exhausted and he keeps sending her on tours to make money and doesn’t care about her health, he just want’s the money.
    Rihanna need’s a manager that care’s about her.

    • Loyalty April 28, 2013

      Blaming Jay Z for Rihannas stupid behaviour is just lame. Jay Brown is the one who has innings in what she does anyway. Jay aint her father, hes got his own daughter, aint nobody got time to deal with an immature 25 year old.

    • lolz April 28, 2013

      lol. she doesn’t have a contract with roc nation. they’re only her managers. hired or coop. helping her make more money. she can fire them anytime if she thinks they doing a bad job building her up and managing her stuff. the only contract she had was with defjam records. a regular distribution deal. more about the cost and $hares of the production and the incoming ca$h selling her music big.

  76. Pro Unity April 28, 2013

    I have never commented on any blog! I needed to say this to whoever this blogger is.

    To the owner of this blog…It’s absolutely shameful and absurd that you promote divisiveness and hatred in the Black community. Why do you and most of your audience thrive and perpetuate hatred?

    My question to you and some of your emotionally imbalance followers is, what is wrong in having more than one Black entertainer on top? Is there a written rule that states you must bash one in order to uplift one?
    I love Beyonce, Rihanna, Ciara, Ashanti, Keyshia Cole, Kelly Rowland, etc… In order words, I love all Black entertainers. My wish is for all of them to be on top of their music game and other endeavours they pursue. They all don’t have to have a “Whitney Hudson (R.I.P), Jhud, and Mariah Carey’s voice”, I particularly will find it boring if they all had the same voice and dancing styles. Let them each be their own persons.
    The white community are logical enough to want to dominate every aspect of music and acting cultures by supporting their own. Why can’t the Black community do the same?

    You are extremely unprofessional and very emotive to constantly want to bash and belittle Black entertainers and their achievement, no matter how small.

    Most people try to pursue their dreams (in different industries) and work hard to achieve it. Rihanna is not a saint (no one is) but she is living the dream she dreamt of as a child. Her music and her achievements may not be to your liking but she does have an audience that is buying her music.

    Learn to remove your emotions from the situation and just report as an anthropologist would. If you don’t like Rihanna but feels the need to report about her, all you had to say was “Rihanna’s unapologetic goes platinum” and leave it at that. Why belittle her success? Unapologetic is hers. Weather she wrote the music or not, is the not the question. Rihanna recorded those songs and executed the ideas. Stop being too emotional and use logic!!!

    When you have a tool such as a blog and have decent traffic, you should use it to promote togetherness, love and peace instead of divisiveness and hatred.

    Promote inclusiveness because there is already too much hatred in the world, particularly towards Black people.
    Enough of the hatred, you should not perpetuate cyber bullying, use the platform you have to bring beauty into the world!

    • G4L April 28, 2013

      Wow that was some REAL s*** the only people that will disagree with this is Sam & the rest of the ignorant hive that stays kissing his ass

      I respect this comment alot best comment on here

      • Pro Unity April 28, 2013

        I wonder how this person you call Sam sleeps at night, knowing that he or she foster a community of hatred and divisiveness?

        One thing is clear, consumers have power.
        When you visit this site and others, you are paying to do so via your internet connection. IF you all speak out and condemn this kind of behaviour instead of participating in it, they will listen, especially when its starts hurting their pockets! Just ask Rick Ross!

        You may not be able to appeal to the logical side of this blogger but you can call him/her to uphold their profession with almost integrity. One way to do that is by gathering people together to sign an e-petition calling for a bycott. Another way is to write to their advertisers of how they are perpetuating hatred and bullying in the fabric of society.

        Consumers have the power and you are one of them!!!

    • MuiMui April 28, 2013

        Kiiii nice try…your only shade is that my Queen doesnt have a single out?! Kiiiiiiii

        Not everyone feels the need to ANNUALLY release subpar generic repetitive garbage to get a #1 single…its MUCH deeper than that to QUEEN CARTER! 😉

    • Likica April 28, 2013

      That’s just in the USA honey. What about France, Germany, the Uk, Italy, Spain? Has 4 been certified in those countries beside the UK? :/ It is not even 23xPlatinum in the Uk after 2 years, while Unapologetic went in less than 5 months.
      Don’t act like your fav is a huge album seller when she has yet to outsell Brtiney’s baby one More time album with all her album discography combined 😉

      • Likica April 28, 2013

        2xPlatinum*

      • Likica April 28, 2013

        I don’t consider 4 a flop though, but are the USA sales the most important thing. Worldwide <<< The USA. You all act like Unapologetic is done but it is not, she will release more singles from it. Right Now will be the next single.

        Yes, she is singles queen but Beyonce is average both at albums/singles. 😉 Don't singles make part of record sales? Yes. So, what's your point? Beyonce has sold more singles than albums as well so is she a singles artist? Pretty much like everyone else in the game beside Adele xD

      • SLAY_HIVE April 28, 2013

        And where did S****** come from! Lmaoooooo i can care less about her sales…..yeah she slayed back in her day! Kiiii

        Im not here for you comparing a “white” teen bubble gum pop star’s sales to Bey’s…of course they will be better! The reach! Have a bed bxtch…YOU’RE TIIIIIIRED! ZZZZZZ KII

      • Likica April 28, 2013

        Ofc you will not because Britney puts her to shame. It’s not like Beyonce’s music is deep and meaningful too. She has some good songs but her discography is wekaer than Britney’s. Stripped wasn’t as generic as DIL and it was bigger seller than it as well. Let Go was a pop/rock album, less generic than DIL and it did better as well. :/

    • SLAY_HIVE April 28, 2013

      Kiiiii see you bxtches are missing my point…. I know 4 wasnt the Queens best selling album,

      yet it still sold close to 3 million WW with NO hit singles! Went platinum in US within six weeks and is slaying a world tour with this so called “flop ” album! #SHADE

      But Rihject takes 10 years to get to platinum with THREE hits from UNA! KIII

      SINGLES BXTCH! #THEEND 😉

      • SLAY_HIVE April 28, 2013

        Rihject has 100 albums tho compared to Beyonce’s 4…. Shouldnt Rihanna’s sales be atleast 20 million ahead of Bey’s?? Bey sales more albums as a whole versus a few ringtones kiiiii

        The only average seller i see is Rihject! Kiiii

        11 #1s with album sales that dont match! What a MESS! 😉

      • Likica April 28, 2013

        Both are gurl, both are. Beyonce was known when she released her 1st album. But looking back in the past, her debut album with DC flopped as hard as Music of The Sun. A Girl Like Me did pretty decent, 3.5-4 million for a one-hit-wonder. Then came GGGB which is bigger than any era of your fav and then all Hive began hating on Rihanna.
        Beyonce is a better album seller than Rihanna but she is average as well. Rihanna would sell more if she didn’t release an album a year and if all of her eras had 2343543556 singles like Beyonce’s (MOTS has just 2/AGLM 4,while first 2 Bey albums had 10 + COI/WIO and FT). Loud has sold almost 6 million in a year and 2-3 months.
        But Rihanna really slays her when it comes to singles. I mean, Crazy In Love is still struggling to get 2xPlatinum certification and it was #1 single while Pon de replay reached #2 and it is already 2xPlatinum. Such a shame. :/

      • I Will Adorn You April 28, 2013

        You need to learn that while sales are good, they are not reflection of everything. Crazy in Loves impact>>>>>> Pon De Replay baby. That song does not need all these certificates to be recognised as one of the biggest songs of the 00s. And now you wanna bring DC into it? I thought that didn’t count towards anything Beyonce. Convenient much. Because just because you come out of group and are known does not guarantee you debut solo success.

      • SLAY_HIVE April 28, 2013

        Kiiii Rihanna could sale more albums than Beyonce if she didnt release every year? LIEEEEEESSSS

        thats the reason she releases every year because her albums start to lose momentum and interest after about six to 7 months after release

        ….so then she changes her hair color and throw an album together real quick! STOP IT! Kiiiiiii

        CRAZY IN LOVE >>> pon the replay… I mean who even remembers that mess?! Girl just stop! 🙂 🙂

      • I Will Adorn You April 28, 2013

        And you could uses that same theory with Rihanna singles since some Beyoncé singles such as Halo and If were a boy have gone 2x platinum over some Rihanna #1s. So it swings both ways.

The hate is something that is always stated about more then love. Love is what make the world go around, and hate makes things stay in one place and not get a chance to reach your full ability of the work that each do for their careers are in the ordinary people who work hard for their money.

    I hate when people think that only black people knock black people down…I been on plenty of white dominated websites to see that even white people knock white people down…It has nothing to do with race, or the color of the skin people will knock people down no matter what so stop this crabs in the barrel bull crap! People love different things, it has everything to do with taste, and matter of preference! I don’t support every black person simply because i am black, i support them based on matter of preference so people get over yourself! I feel like that’s just a way to trap people, telling them they have to support
    something because of skin color alone!

    • Pro Unity April 28, 2013

      Black people do belittle their own more than any other race! FACT (with statistics. You do not have to believe me, just do the research)!

      I am not saying white blogs do not cyber bully their own sometimes but this horrendous behaviour (whether perpetuated by white or black) is particularly prevalent in Black blogs!

      The owner of this blog can have a house rule of no offensive comments; instead he or she is the one perpetuating the divisiveness.

      With regards to taste and support for Black artists. You do not have to support every black artists financially by buying their music, support them by not cyber bullying them and belittling their achievements or not. You do not have to knock down Beyonce, to uplift Rihanna, vice versa. If Beyonce, Rihanna, Ciara, Kerry etc is your taste, then support them but do not belittle others just because you do not support them. Less emotion, more logic. Spread love, not hatred!

      Too much hatred in the world already, spread love!

      • MuiMui April 28, 2013

        The rule of no Offensive wording would be great because it make no kind of sense all of the cursing people do to try and get their point over , because it does not take all of that .

Sam is notorious for shading Rihanna just like there are other blogs that shade Beyonce, its part of the package. They are not here to be politically correct all the time thats why they are BLOGS. Nobodys forcing you to visit and give them hits ijs. Rihanna and Beyonce know damn well there are sites that will shade because of thei status and I am sure they dont give a s***, it doesnt affect their success because at the end of it, its all promo. No its not nice, but its media.

    I just watched two navy members arguing about being real Stans. Lmao.
    What baffles me is the fact that Rihanna has STANS. Like that one Kim kardashian Stan
    On this site…what has she done to deserve stans? Give lazy performances, drinking and partying,
    Pretending to care about her fans and rehearse for shows…she doesn’t have the strong work ethic like Beyonce does
    Or else it would show live. How pathetic. I can understand Gaga, MJ, Mariah Carey, Miguel, etc having Stans tho.
    The point is Rihanna ain’t exceptionally talented enough for STANS. So just why don’t u be a fan
    And stop embarrassing urself. She’ll never be as great as u idiots make her to be.

    I’m sorry Navi but this post is hilarious. That big ass Jay Z picture had me dying.

    Rihanna don’t promote her album pass the first week. once the album is out its like she’s finish with it . she don’t promote the singles she does videos for the pop song ,but none for the RNB. she don’t go on late night talk show to perform. had she done all of the above,” her album would sell more. I think she looking at it and said, most of the money from album sales goes to the record label so why should i stress my self”.

    name the last black artist that went platinum?. Black artist don’t really go platinum. anytime a black artist goes platinum its an achievement

    • the voice April 28, 2013

      3. NICKI MINAJ – platinum worldwide
      4. LIL WAYNE – platinum in 2 weeks

    Sam with the same tired ass shade…..just congrats her and keep the f*** on moving !

  100. Jewell April 28, 2013

    ROTFL Sam you a mess for that.

  101. cocobutta April 28, 2013

    Oh she FINALLY got there!!

    Those albums sales sure do CRAWL over the platinum line.

    Her singles are the Hare
    Her albums are the tortoise

    SIDEEYE!!

  102. Davis April 28, 2013

    Wow this has got to be the most shady post to date! Sam your ass is bad! I see you’ve made em’ seethe aswell.

  103. kyllaw April 28, 2013

    First off rocnation is her management not her label! She is Jay-z boss! She can replace him easily! To the navy stop arguing with the hive they can’t take away her accomplishment.yeah ok she does have more albums but she has also accomplished just as much in less time tho! And without the platform off a girl band behind her. All but one of her albums are platinum and she has broken some records! Yes she may change her image before every album but they are very much different.she had managed to do all this with lack luster performances,as the hive say, with mediocre voice but it’s able to gross $90 million tour! So let them shade the fact that all her success with all the not so good things they shouldn’t even critique anyone.to then it’s bad but hey with all the negative s*** they come with she the only person on beyonce level as far as black female artist.so they should ask themselves if this ids their fav only competition just how great can their fav be?

  104. my forehead tho April 28, 2013

    That is great for her, although one would think that she should have went platinum much faster seeing as she the most twitter followers, facebook friends, and YouTube views. Nevertheless, her success, when she rarely gets it, is just another check in the Carter’s billion+ dollar pockets.

    Ohhh,and death at the fact that Chris Brown’s father hates this b****, and wants him to date Jordan Sparks because according to him “She’s a wholesome young lady, very pretty,”

    • kiss of life April 28, 2013

      But Chris Browns father isn’t even in his life, so his opinion is uhhh….invalid.

  105. Beyonce fat ass drinks 3 packs of pepsi a day, but still can’t save PEPSI…MAYBE she should try the diet one so her fat ass can loose those thunder thighs, and thick tree stump neck! April 28, 2013

    That’s how you know jay-z is an ugly man, When you put on a damn suit, and tie and still look like you belong on a damn box of cigarettes ewwww…

  106. Special Delivery April 28, 2013

    Jay Z will always be higher than Rihanna in that hierarchy. He was the one who signed her in the first place, she will always be indebted to him to some extent. Yall will have to deal.

  107. Special Delivery April 28, 2013

    @ My Forehead tho:
    death at the fact that Chris Brown’s father hates this b****, and wants him to date Jordan Sparks because according to him “She’s a wholesome young lady, very pretty,”

    ROTFL!

  108. Rihanna killed beyho’s career April 28, 2013

    This is good considering the fact that my Caribbean queen releases an album every year, back to back with no breaks.I don’t see any black woman beating the pop queen in sales this year. And it’s hilarious that the HIVS want to come at Rihanna when their fat ugly crooked nose fav hasn’t had a hit since “NoSingleLadies” When was the last time you saw Ci-error on the relevant charts?? I know people who think these bytches retired.

    • SLAY_HIVE April 28, 2013

      Kiiiii funny that my fave hasnt had a #1 since single ladies but her tour can outsell a bxtch with numerous generic hits! Show up to perform EVERY night AND SLAY! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

      That jug head anorexic c*** could NEVER! kiiiii

      THE STRUGGLE!!! BXTCHES HAVE TO RELEASE AN ALBUM EVERY YEAR JUST TO KEEP UP! 🙂

      QUEEN Carter hasnt even released a full song yet and she has still the #1 topic of 2013! 😉

      Try again Bxtch! _/

      • Likica April 28, 2013

        And once again she rips off an entire song to score a hit 😉 Someone lacks originality. And please, how is Rihanna’s music generic when most of her songs are urban just like your favs? It’s not like Beyonce doesn’t have generic dance songs like Sweet Dreams/Radio/Why Don’t You Love Me.

        The fact that she said that B Day was made just in two weeks :/
        Anyway, enjoy it. Maybe the melody is going to be familiar to your ears? 😉

      • SLAY_HIVE April 28, 2013

        Girl STFU! 98% of Rihject’s music is simple and genrric…Rude boy WMN, POU IT UP, S&M,…..she doesnt have many heartfelt songs that she actually SINGS! KIIII I think you get my point 😉

        Beyonce has dance songs as well but is well known for her ballads and vocal ability hence the 17 grammys! ;)(see: DIL, HALO, I CARE , START OVER, 1+1, irreplaceable, Listen, IIWB ETC…..Bey has real talent kiiiii

        Hun i didnt even waste my precious time clicking that link!When did it become illegal to sample?? Kiiii bxtch you better scramble and search through youtube to TRY and shade Bey #pathetic

      • Likica April 28, 2013

        Russian Roulette/Stay/Cry/Fire Bomb/Photographs/Unfaithful/Final Goodbye/A Million Miles Away/California King Bed/Cold Case Love/Take a Bow disagree 😉 What about Diva, Deja Vu, Crazy In Love, Check On It, Single Ladies, Naughty Girl, Baby Boy, Ring The Alarm and etc.? All are generic R&B/urban songs. Rated R is more critically acclaimed than any Bey’s album.
        Ofc you wouldn’t listen to it since you know that she is lacking originality once again. Hell even her biggest hit crazy In Love was a sample. :/

      • SLAY_HIVE April 28, 2013

        GIRRRL it took you all night to research the songs and finally respond?! Kiiii

        And STILL 80% of the songs you named are still generic and went NOWHERE! The only people who know those songs are her stans kiiiii

        nobodys here for “singing” Rihanna…only club music! 😉 #sorry

        what was the point of you naming all those Bey songs, clearly i stated earlier that she’s made dance songs!
        ;)…….
        And all of her #1s have spent more weeks at #1 and made more of an impact than ANY Rihject song you named!

        Lastly, whats the point of you saying CIL was a sample, like that will erase any impact it made! Kiiii

        Thats like me saying Rihject was trying to rip off MJ with Dont stop the Music KIIIIII!

        Hun i didnt click on the link because Beyonce using a sample is IRRELEVANT to me, a Rihject stan calling anyone “unoriginal” is the big KIII of the night! (FEFE DOBSON WANNABE, MADONNA WANNABE, AND lets not forget who she swagger jacked 1st! 😉 have a good night c***!

      • Likica April 29, 2013

        Actually her stans are here for her ballads, you see Diamonds and Stay? Rihanna ballads are not generic. If they are, so are Beyonce’s. They slayyyyy. Aren’t all of Beyonce’s #1s uptempo songs? Crazy In Love, Baby Boy, Single Ladies, hell even Irreplaceable is not completely a ballad..? How come that most of Rihanna albums are more critically acclaimed than Bey’s?

        Her songs spent more weeks but Rihanna #1s easily outsell them, even her top 10s singles. All her #1s went at least 2xPlatinum. Is Crazy in Love there, Baby Boy, still struggling to get there?

        Rihanna has never sampled an entire song like Beyonce did, she just samples some parts of them. So Don’t Stop The Music is not a complete rip off. And talking about impact, I don’t think so. Umbrella made bigger cultural impact than any of your fav’s songs. We Found Love is there too. Even if Rihanna had the best song in the world you would never give her credit for that. There is not a music competition without at least 2 Rihanna’s songs. So spare me that b******* that her music is generic and forgettable when that is not true. She may have some generic songs but so does your fav, what’s a big deal?

        Wasn’t Beyonce sued so many times for plagirism, copying and lying about writing credits? If Rihanna is a Madonna wannabe, Beyonce is a Tina Turner wannabe. I prefer to be the most successful female artist of all time than the average one. As you can see many people try to copy Rihanna and her sound, you have Rita Ora, Paige Thomas, Willow Smith etc. I can assure you that she is the biggest star in my country and that all singers here are copying her fashion, especially hairstyle and sound.

        I don’t hate Beyonce at all, but you need to be realistic and stop shading Rihanna when your fav and her are the biggest black starts in the game. Bey’s stans were first to come to this post and bash Rihanna and how long it took her to get Platinum and calling her album a flop despite outselling your favs last album in 5 months and still charting very well in all countries. If Rihanna is a singles artist, so is Beyonce. Aren’t like 70% of her total records sold singles and 30% albums? Yeah, so? An album artist is someone like Mariah Carey, Madonna, Whitney Houston, people who sold more albums and singles. Rihanna and Beyonce are not among them, sorry. Have a nice time 😉

  109. truth tea (take a sip) April 28, 2013

    but TGJ fave Nicki Garbaj’s album has been out for over a year and still aint platinum, even with a re-release.

  110. Lou April 28, 2013

    HA! Better late than never I guess!

  111. kiss of life April 28, 2013

    why does it matter how long it takes someone go platinum? going platinum is so rare these days. the bickering is silly. congrats to rihanna!!!!

  112. BeyLikeMe April 28, 2013

    That’s right b****, make my Queen that money.

  113. JER April 28, 2013

    This is a PLATNUM album. Certified Platinum while a couple thousand sway from scanning 1 million copies…. not certifed Platinum at sales of 600k…

  114. RG2 April 28, 2013

    SAM YOU MAKE THE BEYHIVE LOOK BAD. NOT ALL OF US ARE HATEFUL SCUM LIKE YOU, WHO ARE OBSESSED W/ RIHANNA’S SUCCESS. BOTH RIHANNA AND BEYONCE DO THEIR THING AND THEY’ARE BOTH GOOD AT WHAT THEY DO. IF YOU DON’T LIKE RIHANNA THATS FINE BUT APPARENTLY YOU LIKE THE MONEY SHE HELPS PUT IN YOUR WALLET ASWELL AS BEYONCE. WE ALL KNOW WHAT YOUR DOING AND YOUR NOT SLICK. ALWAYS HAVE TO START A STAN WAR FOR SOME ATTENTON #LAME!

  115. Little Monster April 28, 2013

    Shade fest!

  116. Teacher April 28, 2013

    Congrats Queen Rihanna!!! Each year a platinum album!!!

    That Rihanna Reign…!!!!!!!

  117. Mark111 April 28, 2013

    Keyshia Cole’s album came out the same day, where’s her plat? Where Brandy’s? Where’s Chris Brown? Ushers? And for the Hive, when will Bey get another top 10? Or #1? Ciara stand (all three of you) when will Ciara do ANYTHING? Rita Ora olny sold a million with singles and album combined? Nice try, but when will she get a platinum hit or album. Congrats to Rihanna on her 6th platinum album + 1 gold album.

  118. Selenator April 28, 2013

    Platinum is platinum. Go RiRi!!
