Rihanna’s ‘Stay’ Surpasses 2.5 Million Milestone / Ariana Grande Heads To #1

Published: Thursday 2nd May 2013 by David

US music lovers have spoken…and the names on their lips are Rihanna and Ariana Grande!

That’s right, thanks to their ever loyal respective fan bases and the support of many a casual listener, the Pop Princesses have made significant chart gains in the last week.

Good news below!

In the last week, Rihanna‘s ‘Stay‘ moved an impressive 162,000 digital units pushing its combined US sales to 2,510,000- helping her to secure her 11th #1 on the Radio Songs Chart.

Marking the latest chart triumph scored by the Grammy winner, after a number of songs placed on her #1 album ‘Unapologetic’ scored by RIAA certifications by way of momentum generated by its lead single ‘Diamonds’ and the topic of discussion, ‘Stay‘.

Meanwhile- as Ciara speeds to the top with her R&B single ‘Body Party‘- Ariana Grande makes killer chart moves with her Mac Miller assisted ‘The Way‘, leaping from #32 to #19 in the space of the week, now well on its way to surpassing its initial #10 peak.

Congratulations to all!

      The thirst in this post is beyond me…

      • JuGou May 6, 2013

        I just got paid $6784 working off my laptop this month. I was shocked when my neighbor told me she was averaging $95 p/h, and she convinced me to try. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out. The potential with this is endless. This is what I do, Rich4.Com_

    • Ball So Hard May 2, 2013

      I like Ariana. She reminds me of a young Mariah when she records. She still hasnt been able to hit those Mariah high notes live though. I think it is fitting that they both share this post because Ariana is a hugh Rihanna Fan. She near went crazy when Rihanna followed her back on twitter!

  2. . : : h 2 o : : . May 2, 2013

    Samantha it’s called RIAA, not RIIA 🙄

    Congrats to them I guess..

    • RihNaj May 2, 2013

      This biitch Grande just slayed my life with that live performance love her voice!!

  3. My Forehead Tho May 2, 2013

    That’s good for her. Hopefully she thanks Beyonce, lady gaga and Adele for making that possible for her.

    I can’t wait until Bey and Adele return with real music…

    LMAO. Rihanna did NO promo for Pour It Up and it charted higher than Body Flop 🙂 😉 🙂 🙂 🙂

    And yesssssssss@ the Queen SLAYING selling 2.5 million with a ballad 😛

  5. Arie May 2, 2013

    Impressive no slunder at all, Rihanna is killing these charts there is no stopping her.

    • . : : h 2 o : : . May 2, 2013

      We all should be happy for them too. Ciara hasn’t had a US top 40 single since . . . . .

      • Ball So Hard May 2, 2013

        Since…….since …….hiss teeth! .I cannot count how far back!

      • Mb92 May 7, 2013

        You all and these corny jokes…. Ciara really has nothing to do with this post, however, if you’re going to bash her atleast acknowledge the fact that her single is doing great givin the state of Rnb at the moment!!! Rihanna may can sale more than Ciara but she could NEVER pull off an RnB masterpiece like “Body Party”…. Ciara has found her lane, you bums should be applauding her!!!

  7. JJFAN1814 May 2, 2013

    Damn looks like Rihanna has snatched Beyflopce for good!

    “All my girls at the party look at that body shakin’ that thing like I never did see, got a nice package alright, guess I’m gonna have to ride it tonight”


    I mean seriously..

    How fat and hairy are your balls!!!

    This can NOT be life!!!!! A JANET stan talking about getting snatched??

    • JJFAN1814 May 2, 2013

      All For You blocked Survivor from #1 for weeks so…

      • . : : h 2 o : : . May 2, 2013

        LOL where exactly??

        Certainly f*****’ NOT on the united world track chart, where “Survivor” was #1 for 6 weeks and “All For You” couldn’t get a taste of that.

  9. NΛVI May 2, 2013

    smh this title is so misleading i though ariana got a #1 hit. Come on Navi let’s make this rihanna 13th number 1. she need to discount it or throw a remix!! but it seems as though the song keeps gaining momentum every week, so that might not be nessecary. Was Ciara really needed in this post…why don’t you include every artist up to where ciara is at while you were at it -_-…so unnecessary lol

    • . : : h 2 o : : . May 2, 2013

      “Come on Navi let’s make this rihanna 13th number 1.”

      LOL what a strange fetish..

    • JOHNVIDAL May 2, 2013

      So you have the nerve to say that Rihanna song needs a discount or remix (again) so that it can it to #1 (fake again that would be). God what a desperation to reign on singles charts… I know she can´t with the album ones regardless. But wanting her to do that on singles charts it´s not a good look either

      • NΛVI May 2, 2013

        3 million albums sold so far and the both of you can suck my c*** basically. We stay making HISTORIH AND YA”LL STAY MAD #CLAPBACKKKKKK

    • Navy Sailor!!! May 2, 2013

      It is already #1 on AirPlay….hopefully it’ll hit #1 on the hot 100 soon 🙂

      • NΛVI May 2, 2013

        waiting patiently for it to be official (hot 100)!! i love seeing the hoodhive settthee lol

  10. JOHNVIDAL May 2, 2013

    TGJ… seriously: so now you have chosen a new artist to overhype. Is it that impressive the Arina Grande position on the R&B chart??? 🙂 I´m sure you are doing it just to shade Mariah Carey or something. I know it´s ridiculous but it´s probably the case
    About Rihanna: keep slaying the singles charts girl. The album charts slayage will never come but hey, it´s something

    • William May 2, 2013

      3 million albums sold thus far, keep it cute boo 😉

      • JOHNVIDAL May 2, 2013

        That´s not slaying. She still has not SLAYED the album charts, never. She does decent or good sometimes. For the big radio promo year after year she gets many would even call her sales below average. Keep it cute boo

    • Likica May 2, 2013

      Good Girl Gone Bad did so well, it has sold 9 million copies worldwide.
      But I don’t understand why people just come for Rihanna’s sales. Most artists sell more singles than albums nowadays. It’s singles era today. Look at Bruno Mars/Beyonce/Lady GaGa/Katy Perry, all sold more singles than albums. 20-40% of their total sol records are singles and the rest are albums. If Rihanna is a singles artist, so are the mentioned people.
      A huge album seller are people like legends (we all know who they are) and from all artists of our generation that would be Britney Spears and Adele.

      • JOHNVIDAL May 2, 2013

        Britney is not anymore either. Right now they would be Adele, Taylor Crap, Michael Buble (at least till now), Eminem, Justin Timberlake right now and yes Beyonce seems to still do better than Rihanna with album sales (I´m focusing in the USA, though I know). Rihanna is supposed to be at her total peak and she still has not slayed the album charts. I repeat I´m not talking about doing good, I´m saying SLAYING

      • Likica May 2, 2013

        Britney used to be it though. :/ Adele is the lead one. They sell more albums than Rihanna in the USA but in our continent, Europe, Rihanna slays all of them beside Adele and maybe Eminem.

        For exampe in Spain, your home country, only Adele’s last album got certified among them. Unapologetic is Gold there as well and she had a platinum album with GGGB and Don’t Stop The Music was #1 single on Spanish year-end chart being certified 6xPlatinum. Rihanna lacks the USA support to be a better album seller, I agree that she never slayed with album sales there.

  11. William May 2, 2013

    Wait she’s slaying with a ballad in this day and age that the music industry is in considering she’s pop/dance artist. That in itself is a feat that shouldn’t go unnoticed. Congrats to all, good to see Ciara on the main charts after so long.

  12. Selenator May 2, 2013

    Go Ariana!!

    • CiCi Slaaaaays May 2, 2013

      Selenas new song is cute to bad she can’t sing it live :-/

  13. MC IS THE PLACE TO BE May 2, 2013

    How can Ariana Grande be so pretty and sing sooooooooo good, ughhh God is so unfair hahaha

    • caribbean native May 2, 2013

      hahah i love this lolll

  14. PYTFROMAL May 2, 2013

    Janet Damita Jo has nothing to prove. Her longevity, album sales,innovation and influence speak for itself. She is a legend. When your fave gets there, lets talk.


    Congratulations Rihanna and Ciara. I love Body Party and Stay!

  15. CiCi Slaaaaays May 2, 2013

    The hive needs to be embarrassed how is Rihannas no talent having ass slaying with ballads but beyonce couldn’t do this with any of her ballads from 4 smh

    • NΛVI May 2, 2013

    • Navy Sailor!!! May 2, 2013

      No talent sis? Put two mics onstage…. Rihanna and Ciara, and see would would slay. No choreography, no back bends….all vocals. Keep it cute boo!

      But yes: the “generic fast food singer” is slaying with ballads, and there’s nothing the naysayers can do about it. 😆

      • Ballsy May 2, 2013

        “But Bish hold on, but Bish hold on” *in my Brian from YT voice* Picture this, Ciara, open mic , free drinks free entry, you going??”
        Bish it’s still a No? Bish it’s still a NO!”

        Ciara cannot hold a note to umbrella much less diamond! Rihanna will murda her !

    • rihking May 2, 2013

  16. Career Ender May 2, 2013


    And this is news because?

    Bruno sold more but you didn’t make any post about that?

    I see why X,Y and Z and other meaningful commentors left the site

    Only sybils left (beyonce weave, kelly, honeychild) and ‘those’ 2 MESSY little dinosaurs (dinosaur-donna stans)

    • caribbean native May 2, 2013

      bruno had a price cut on his single and his whole album for that matter sweetheart…. jus sip the tea and hush

      • Ballsy May 3, 2013

        @Career Ender you need to keep up. Bruno slashed prices hun! Rihann is still selling at full price.

        Also OAN Why is Ciara album only 7.99 where as Fantasia’s is $9.99..Is she already slashing prices in pre release stage? I mean UNA is stll $11.99 while the deluxe is $15.99 .. Can someone explain the price differences to me?

  17. RICHANDBLACK11 May 2, 2013

    Congrats to all…….Yass riri you better slay them single CHARTS….WHAT ABOUT THEM ALBUM CHARTS THOU?

    • CiCi Slaaaaays May 2, 2013

      Why couldn’t any of 4s ballads do aswell as stay isnt beyonce supposed to be the more talented artist and Rihanna has zero talent yet she can sell a ballad but beyonce cant wow

      • RICHANDBLACK11 May 2, 2013

        What does Beyonce got to do with this? Just be happy CiCI is back on the charts after 3yrs.

    • NΛVI May 2, 2013

      when beyonce starts slaying either, OOPS!

      • RICHANDBLACK11 May 2, 2013

        Re-read re-write… We all know DWT aint slaying nothing…NOW BOW DOWN AND SUCK THIS C*** BOO.

      • CHILE May 2, 2013

        @POORANDDARKSKINNED fossil is on no charts!!! That’s the real kiiiiiiii

      • RICHANDBLACK11 May 2, 2013

        Duh asswipe she hasn’t realease anything to be on the charts thats the Kiii@CHILEYOUWHITETRASH

      • CHILE May 2, 2013

        @POORANDDARKSKINNED. 4closure *chuckles*

      • . : : h 2 o : : . May 3, 2013

        @ Chile

        But “Music of a Flop”, “A Flop Like Me”, “Rated Flop”, “Flop That Flop” and “Unflopbajanic” all of them FLOPPED as bad as “4” if not worse so . . . what’s your point?

    • JOHNVIDAL May 2, 2013

      She´s not expected to appear there 🙂

      • RICHANDBLACK11 May 2, 2013

        Yass that’s the Kiiiii

      • Likica May 2, 2013

        • 22[15.500 est.] for this week in the USA.
        And Rihanna really slays when it comes to albums in the UK. Loud is almost at 1.9 million there and GGGB is at 1.86. That is not average, it’s huge. Unapologetic is doing pretty well there, 625.661 sold so far and it is huge in France, 242.700. Her worst market is the American one :/

      • RICHANDBLACK11 May 2, 2013

        @LIKICA….her worst markets is america, which is the LARGEST MUSIC MARKET

      • Likica May 2, 2013

        Does it matter though? I would rather her selling most of her records outside of the USA unlike for example Taylor Swift who sells 95% of her music in the USA, 3% in Canada and 2% in other countries. Rihanna’s the biggest international star in Europe with GaGa.

      • RICHANDBLACK11 May 2, 2013

        The biggest seller in Europe with MEDIOCRE #
        Yess is does matter if she is suppose to be the Biggest pop star at the moment.

      • Likica May 2, 2013

        Not in Europe boo. She has two 3 million album sellers in Europe, Beyonce has zero, 2 million is her maximum. The USA is her biggest problem, she needs better support from them and she will be doing huge numbers. Anyway, even if you ignore her sales, she is the biggest pop star. The most talked about, her music is everywhere – on radio, TV, in clubs, her lipstick was sold out in 3 hours and her fashion makes her even bigger, her private life and Chris are always the hottest topic, her songs are always sung in music competitions and talent shows.. What else does she need?

      • RICHANDBLACK11 May 2, 2013

        @Likica ….and Beyonce don’t have the same come on now…Both girls are doing it no shade….Rihanna more so her singles and Beyonce is the performer

    • Navy Sailor!!! May 2, 2013

      UNA earned Riri her SEVENTH platinum plaque. 3 million WW in 5 months. 🙂 muuuuaaaahhhh

      • Navy Sailor!!! May 2, 2013

        This album will outsell TTT which took a year to sell 3 million WW. 🙂

      • RICHANDBLACK11 May 2, 2013

        congrats boo, how was the show the other night?

  18. Career Ender May 2, 2013

    Her album is not even platinum yet. And she suppose to be the biggest Pop Star in the planet:

    Bruno Mars 2 singles slayed her 2 singles (WIWYM outpeaked Stay)

    UJ and 20/20 experience are mopping the toilets floor with Unpurchased

    Mrs Carter show outselling Diamonds tour and making it look like a circus led by rihclown

    Beyonce, JLo still got looks dept on lock!

    Adele still snatching the awards outta this alien goat’s hands

    Karrueche pushed a bound on CB

    The goat aint winning. I don’t see any rain!

    So irrelevant like Granny-powder-p****-madonna

    • NΛVI May 2, 2013

      LOL i love how you’re trying to convince yourself that rihanna is doing badly by bringing up all these people name smh but if you tell yourself it enough times you’ll start believing it ;)..so keep at it. I love seeing you b****** foam at the mouth for riir’s downfall but by the grace of God it will never cause of hate mongers like you.

    • Yea May 2, 2013

      is your fave on any charts!

    • Navy Sailor!!! May 2, 2013

      BUT her album IS platinum. She has the plaque. 🙂

      Looks are subjective boo.

      DWT is NOT a f****** flop.

      UNA went platinum with ZERO discounts (it was discounted in the UK for a week)

      Adele is snatching EVERYTHING from EVERYONE including your fave.

      You must be bored bringing Karrueche into the mix 🙄
      Yes 20/20 slayed. It also slayed each and every one of your faves albums.

  19. XtinaaLovee May 2, 2013

    I think it is hilarious how Rihanna can sell a ballad But Beyonce cant did any of 4s ballads reach top 10??

    • CHILE May 2, 2013

      not even top 10 top 20!!! kiiiiiiiiii

    • Ballsy May 2, 2013

      Yet the Hive use to say “oh Rihanna can only sell dance music” Welp* Stay is a beautiful ballad and she is selling up a storm. Last I checked 4closure had multiple ballads and not one of them reached top 10!


  20. Career Ender May 2, 2013

    And bitchessssss! Keep coming for “4” singles

    Single Ladies has sold more than any rihFund single —-> _/

  21. Career Ender May 2, 2013

    3. RR

  22. Career Ender May 2, 2013

    And before the titanics starts chasing me on their 200 km/h shipwreck

    YES. “4” FLOPPED , its a flop I agree.

  24. Kai2dashawn May 2, 2013

      • . : : h 2 o : : . May 2, 2013

        I don’t see any lies but at least Beyonce achieved SUCCESSFUL albums and live albums to back it up, can you say the same about Rihanna?

      • Likica May 2, 2013

        Yes I can. Loud and GGGB were very successful and they could end up selling more if she milked those eras like Katy did with Teenage Dream. We live in singles era, when artist sell more singles than album, even Beyonce and you cannot deny that. DC was in a completely different era.
        Every single artist in this world has ups and downs in the career, so that’s normal. What makes Rihanna and Beyonce is not just their music and you know it well. Both are very beautiful and many gurls want to look like them. Rihanna is becoming such a big name in fashion as well, her lipstick is sold out already.

  29. RICHANDBLACK11 May 2, 2013

    Stay is only selling do to MIKKY EKKO… LMAO

    • RiRi Bad May 2, 2013

      B**** please you know that’s a lie

      • CHILE May 2, 2013

        lol can’t you see that phaggot is a lunatic, such a troll

      • RICHANDBLACK11 May 2, 2013

        @CHILEYOURPOORWHITETRASH….how so when you have more post than me, your the troll POOR WHITE TRASH OR IS IT TRALIER PARK TRASH

        And yess it’s true stay is only selling due to Mikky, now who gone check me boo….no DAMN BODY.

        Yass y’all bout to waste that time on me today boo.

      • Dumb Hive May 2, 2013

        So what other U.S. hits does mikky have? since hes so hard to resist that people have to buy this song just because of him

        like your that in denial that you can’t give Rihanna the credit she deserves how sad

      • RICHANDBLACK11 May 2, 2013

        @DUMBNAVI….If you did your homework you would’ve notice I said congrats dummy….TRICKS ARE FOR KIDS…..

      • Dumb Hive May 2, 2013

        Then why would you say this song is only selling cause of him? Why can’t you congratulate without any hate ?

      • RICHANDBLACK11 May 2, 2013

        it’s call being SHADY BABE… oh they so sensitive @DUMBNAVI

    • Yea May 2, 2013

      yet bey was solo and still flop, youre point?

  30. . : : h 2 o : : . May 2, 2013

    Since my fav is more mentioned in this thread than Rihanna and Ariana combined, I’d like to say that after 15 years and 65 million albums + 3.5 million video albums sold worldwide, she can afford one underperforming era without having to worry about foolishness like having a top 10 on a local chart for $1 tracks.

    And until your favs (C-Error, Rihanna, etc..) have achieved what Beyonce has achieved, all your “shade” is completely pointless.

    • Likica May 2, 2013

      When you look at her solo discography, those 1$ tracks make 30-35% of her total records sold and the rest are albums. Talking about local, doesn’t Beyonce sell most of her music in the USA?
      And it is easy to brag about 40 million albums from a group that released albums when they used to sell well but still couldn’t do numbers like Britney Spears, Spice Girls, Nsync, Backstreet Boys and many others. Those sales are average sis.

      • HoneychildPlease May 2, 2013

        Great point! @ LIKICA!

      • RICHANDBLACK11 May 2, 2013

        and all of them groups you name were WHITE……I notice the navy always bring in others to boost Rihanna why so?

      • Likica May 2, 2013

        *I wanted to say 30-35% are albums and 70-65% are singles. If Rihanna is a singles artist, so is Beyonce with her solo career.*

        But Rihanna is a black artist and who beside her pulls over 3 million worldwide right now? Beyonce couldn’t do it with 4 and yet Beyhive call her album sales flop. Actually, imo 3 million is a great for music market today when almost no one buys them albums. And TLC were more successful than DC, they had a diamond album.

        ^^ That’s because of hits hun.

        You and me know where “4” would’ve been if it had hits.

      • Likica May 3, 2013

        Run The World was a basic dance song and she couldn’t score a hit with it. Even Russian Roulette, a dark ballad, was bigger than RTW. Best Thing I never Had was a moderate hit, and the other singles flopped. She did videos for almost all songs on the albums, performed everywhere, even on French X Factor and American Idol, AMAs, Oprahs show and that wasn’t enough to save her album from underperforming. :/

  31. HoneychildPlease May 2, 2013

    Yet that h** beyflop can’t even chart with a damn ballad…* sips tea* BAHAHAHAHAHAWAHAHA stop trying boo boo

    • . : : h 2 o : : . May 2, 2013

      I mean, even Carly f*****’ R.J. sold her tickets for $9 . . . WTF?? 🙁

    Rihanna gets another #1 Radio song tying Mariah. “Stay” was been in the Top 10 for 11 weeks. When was the last time your fave was even close to the Top 10 for one week? I’ll wait. Any questions?

    • . : : h 2 o : : . May 2, 2013

      When did Rihanna get her first #1 album though?

      Because I could swear even SLAVERY was abolished within a shorter span of time 😆

        Aren’t your wrists tired from grasping at that many straws? I mean 9 years of squeezing so tight. Just let it go baby

  33. ShitGotReal May 2, 2013

    And the hive keeps clicking the news from the queen. Your fave doesn’t have a hit since 2009 and y’all are here saying rih is a flop. The onçy flop I see is beyonce who’s affraid to release her new single because she’s gonna flop.

  34. TRUE SPECTRUM May 2, 2013

    Why can’t the Bee HIve be happy for Rihanna and call it a day, it’s not that serious! Gosh I swear you guys nip pick everything this girl dose, we hardly have any black female artist in the music industry on such a high profile yet we tear down the 2 or 3 we have, Black people..yes Black people we gotta do better than that and same the goes for the Navy. Only if the Bee Hive, Navy, Barbz, and Ci-Squad join forces, you know epic that will be by supporting all these ladies!

  35. Slaylor Swift May 2, 2013

    @CiciSlaaays Spillled that tea honey Beyonce supposed to be the king right? Why didn’t ballads from her latest album slay like this Beyonce promoted way more than rihanna did, Even katy perry can sell a ballad (Wide Awake) But King Bey cant whats going on here?

  36. HoneychildPlease May 2, 2013

    Rihanna reign won’t let up, and beyonce hates the day my girl was born!!! LOL straight up took the crown from that has been…Ok yeah she booking arenas, but so what the bish can’t even chart anymore to save her life! All of 4 singles was garbage s*** the album was just about garbage…All of her new ish is trash, and sasha fierce was pretty much garbage too! If not for single ladies that album would have been collecting dust just like the year of FLOP….Keep that energy high beyflop after all it’s all you have….

    • . : : h 2 o : : . May 2, 2013

      At least 4 was her first underperforming album since the last century, can you say the same about Rihanna?

      Who flops 7 times with their albums in less than a decade without scoring no 10M albums? Tell me who?

      And LOL @ “beyonce hates the day my girl was born”.

      What’s about Rihanna to hate??

      Everytime she’s like “Hide yo phavs”, and then ends up FLOPPING worldwide and getting out-wealthed by Beyonce – who only laughes at the delusion – and even getting her money taken by Jay-Z.

      So you need to #TryAgainLater hun. You have so f*****’ weak “dragging” skills.

      • HoneychildPlease May 2, 2013

        I have weak dragging skill? LMFAOOo bish no dragging necessary when stating FACTS! Exactly why you keep commenting on my post! bye h**!

      • Likica May 2, 2013

        Beyonce doesn’t have 10 million seller as a solo artist either despite milking her eras more than Rihanna. You shouldn’t be talking about worldwide flopping when Beyonce is pro at that 😉

      • . : : h 2 o : : . May 2, 2013

        Are you comparing Beyonce’s worldwide flopping to that of Rihanna and putting them on the same level?


      • Likica May 2, 2013

        Ignore the USA for a second. What is Beyonce without it? Where would be her hit singles/albums without it? Her movies? Didn’t so called the biggest flop movie of all time, Battleship, ougrossed every single Beyonce movie internationally? Didn’t GGGB and Loud outsold every Beyonce album in Europe even if you include DC albums? Beyonce’s biggest markets are the USA and Brazil, the Uk is there too, and Japan when she was in DC. She is not that huge without the USA, just deal with it.

      • . : : h 2 o : : . May 2, 2013

        I won’t say anything, I’ll just let her 35 million albums outside the states speak for theirselves.

        And Battleship had a a $209M budget, so IT outgrossing Beyonce’s movies (which had a TOTAL budget of $285M) doesn’t make any sense.

        It still failed to make 100M+ profits, something two or three of Beyonce’s movies did.

      • Likica May 2, 2013

        35 and only 12 of them as a solo artist with 4 albums. :/
        Rihanna did almost the same number with her first 4 albums that Beyonce did as a solo artist.

        Battleship is Rihanna’s first movie but it still was bigger than Beyonce’s debut, Carmen: A Hip Hopera which was a complete failure. Rihanna has a movie that comes in June and we will see her next numbers.

      • . : : h 2 o : : . May 2, 2013

        Yes 12.5M of them are solo, what’s your point?

        And I don’t see the point of comparing an MTV movie to an action movie with a $200M budget TBH.. This’s pretty lame!

      • Likica May 2, 2013

        My point is that she was a good album seller just in DC, as a solo artist she is pretty average like Rihanna. Her sales are nothing to write a home about.

        It’s her debut movie just like Battleship is Rihanna’s.
        Isn’t pretty lame to compare 1998s/1999s/2001s market to a current one when right now just like 8 people can sell 3 million (Lana, Pink, Bruno, Justin, Rihanna, Coldplay, Taylor, One Direction) and almost everyone could do 10 million in 1999s (DC, Britney, NSYNC, Xtina, Celine Dion, Madonna, Mariah Carey, Backstreet Boys, TLC, Spice Girls, Brandy etc etc.)?

  37. HONEY BOO BOO May 2, 2013

    • . : : h 2 o : : . May 2, 2013

      Beyonce is the one with a higher sales total, so yeah . . . she makes Rihanna look like a singles artist, if not a total FLOP.

      Rihanna is only an “albums artist” when compared to pethatic flops like herself. Like Ke$ha, Nicki Minaj, etc..

    Congratulations to everyone! Meanwhile:

    RiRi Woo, the MAC lipstick shade created in collaboration with Rihanna, sold out online in three hours. During that time, “RiRi Woo” was trending on Twitter as customers complained of multiple failed attempts to get through to make the purchase.
    The collaboration was announced in February. At the time, Jennifer Balbier, senior VP of global product development for MAC said Rihanna was insistent that “the color be suitable for every skin tone.”
    For her part, Rihanna said she’s been using MAC products on tour for ages.
    The next time the shade will be available will be in June. But for those with tickets to the Diamonds World Tour’s stop at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn (ahem!) you can buy them on-site at a MAC pop-up store that will be set up in the arena.

  46. JOSE May 2, 2013

    Sam you fruitcake why didnt you post the article Billboard did on Beyonce?

    But more bothersome than Bey’s inspiration-turned-imitation act – and less subtle as her career progresses – is that she’s playing off the risks that other artists have been brave enough to take (and appropriately praised for) instead of challenging herself and taken some herself.

    Perhaps visual and dance concepts don’t come as naturally to her as vocal prowess, but I’m doubtful that she can recruit those for which it does. Even as a vocal performer, Beyonce is more of a canvas than a creator.”


    OUCH! This is why she will not be considered a legend she is isnt creative enough

  49. Yea May 2, 2013

    They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but what if the person imitating is a polarizing icon that should be doing otherwise — someone like Beyoncé?

    On Monday (April 29), pop singer Kerli posted a side-by-side photo on her Facebook page of her and Beyoncé donning the same Amato Haute Couture dress. The photo of Beyoncé comes from the pages of her 2013 “Mrs. Carter Show” tour book.

    Except, it’s not just the Furne One designed dress — which also Nicki Minaj wore in her “Va Va Voom” video — that’s similar in the photo. Both singers can be seen painted in white, from head to toe, and stylistically posed as sculptures.

    No one owns a look, image, dance move (after all, how many artists have pulled out signature Michael Jackson moves?), or in this case, an experimental costume. They’re not copyrighted property, but filed as intellectual property.

    Any artist, including Beyoncé, can wear whatever another artist wore, but that multiplicity gets suspicious and easily pegged as stealing. And understandably so, when it’s not only the look of the artist that is being traced, but his or her entire idea.

    Beyoncé first caught flak for working up a dance similar to Josephine’s Baker’s iconic banana dance in her “Deja Vu” video, then was seen sporting a skirt with dangling bananas when performing the “B’Day” track. But let’s be honest: that wasn’t that serious, at least not at that point in her 20-year plus career. She later borrowed from Bob Fosse’s routine, “Mexican Breakfast,” in the video for her girls anthem, “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It).” There are also references to “Rich Man’s Frug” scene (of Bob Fosse’s “Sweet Charity”) in Bey’s “Get Me Bodied” video.

    There’s a difference between inspiration and imitation. “Countdown” is a good example of Beyoncé doing both in one piece of work. She references Audrey Hepburn’s “Funny Face” dancing and both Hepburn and Peggy Moffitt’s late 50’s/early 60’s fashion, then elaborates with color schemes and pairs the choreography perfectly with the pace of the soundscapes. She also samples Boyz II Men’s countdown from their song, “Uhh Ahh.”

    As the video continues, we see Bey’ using the same choreography, cinematography and costumes that Belgian choreographer and dancer, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, used in “Rosas Danst Rosas.” It’s one thing to be inspired by someone else’s work and revamp with one’s personal style, but it’s another to duplicate exact movements, which is ultimately violating the artist’s intellectual property. Context matters.

    Before the debut of “Countdown,” Beyonce was criticized for nearly replicating Italian singer Lorella Cuccarini’s live performance with her performance of “Run the World (Girls)” at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards. She later stated that she had hired the same choreographers that had worked on Cucarini’s performance, but it’s still puzzling as to why she didn’t work with them to create a groundbreaking concept of her own.

    The choreography, seen in the performance and the song’s accompanying music video, comes from Mozambigue dance troupe Tofo Tofo. Instead of thanking them for the inspiration after the fact, as she’s done with Cuccarini and Keersmaeker, Beyoncé brought them to the U.S. and hired them to dance alongside her in the “Run the World (Girls)” video.

    The 2011 song, off her fourth studio album “4” swipes the beat from Major Lazer’s 2009 “Pon De Floor.” According to Diplo, one half of Major Lazer, the making of “Run the World (Girls)” started out as a “joke” (whatever that means).

    Beyoncé’s “1 + 1” video features scenes similar to the unfinished French film, “Le’Enfer,” while her “Love On Top” video has dancing scenes much the same as those in New Edition’s “If It Isn’t Love” video.

    But more bothersome than Bey’s inspiration-turned-imitation act – and less subtle as her career progresses – is that she’s playing off the risks that other artists have been brave enough to take (and appropriately praised for) instead of challenging herself and taken some herself.

    Perhaps visual and dance concepts don’t come as naturally to her as vocal prowess, but I’m doubtful that she can recruit those for which it does. No shots at Frank Gatson Jr. (but shots?) who is a director, visual artist developer, creative director and choreographer who’s worked closely with greats like Diana Ross, Mariah Carey, Tina Turner and consecutively with Beyoncé.

    Even as a vocal performer, Beyonce is more of a canvas than a creator. The majority of her discography was written (yes, some co-written) by other singer-songwriters, from the likes of Ne-Yo to The-Dream. But the formula works for her: she holds 19 top 10s on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart with six No. 1s.

    The bittersweet side of Beyonce stealing imitable art is that when she does, she does it well. Perhaps it’s why we give the diva a pass, or two, and will in the future. Let’s also not forget that voice of hers and stage stamina that hypnotizes many into disregarding such acts — after all, words and imagery can only strike a chord or transcend to a degree if they’re executed with astounding talent.

    HA HA HA HA Rih’s mac riri lipstick has sold out in 3 hours, they are adding more lipstick in June and the full make up range. No commercials needed. What happened to beyonce’s pepsi? Or H& M?

    I remember when they said that rita whora – this time last year, was gonna shut Rih’s career down. Well, well where is rita whora now? Rih is the most liked person on facebook with 70 mill and she is the most followed female on IG with 7 million. SShe has destroyed beyonce’s comeback. Beyonce cannot cone back.

    Shall we look at beyonce’s 2013 so called ‘ wig snatching , career ending comeback ‘ Her Amy winehouse cover has yet to chart on itunes, Lana del ray is doing well and selling. Bow down and Grown woman flopped to – as did I been on.

    So, We are nearly 6 months in 2013 and STILL NO date. Beyonce tour raps in august, there have been no dates of new dates. Rih has added Abu Dhabi in the middle east and the Phillipines to her ever growing tour which WILL BE the biggest.

    New River island fall collection is coming in fall. Not to mention her new comedy comes this summmer – june, I think! Poor beyonce HER CAREER IS OVER.

    • Rih keeps winning – catch up heuax May 2, 2013

      Riri mac lipstick even trended WW on twitter/ Ever since the internet generation took hold in the last 5 years ( myspace, facebook, twitter, tumblr, instagram, youtube, blogs, fashion blogs )

      Beyonce has fallen apart; she cannot function in this Online generation where you have to sell image and personality. This is where Rih ‘s talent line, hence why she has killed off the last of bey her tour, people keep talking about beyonce tour, but…..rihanna just added the middle east and asian to her tour, while beyonce has yet to add anymore dates. So, beyonce good bye tour is doing nothing to stop rihanna flow.

      In fact! It is making rih more in demand, cos the modern generation want to see rihanna. I have seen beyonce stage clothes – very old fashion, like old vegas lounge singer. Her screaming and diva antics are not worth jack s*** in this ‘ new ‘ type of music industry.

      Beyonce got so much abuse for wearing that gold nippled bodysuit she had to get rid of it. Poor dat. All she seems to get is attacked by the Media and GP. Beyonce has become every polarizing,that billboard article ripping her down as stealing from young INNOCENT white girls make her look as sinister as janet jackson in 2004.

      Beyonce had a good run, but she should go out in top after her tours ends in August, cos the GP are not here for her and the are gonna force her out.

    Rihanna’s “Stay,” featuring Mikky Ekko, jumps 6-3 on the Hot 100 (returning to its peak position), fueled in part by a milestone 2-1 coronation on Radio Songs (134 million, up 4%). The ballad becomes Rihanna’s 11th No. 1 on Radio Songs, tying her with Mariah Carey for the most leaders dating to the BDS-based chart’s December 1990 inception.

    “Stay” bullets at No. 4 on Digital Songs (162,000, up less than 1%) and No. 15 on Streaming Songs (2.9 million, up 10%).

    Honestly,Im not surprised. We allknow Rihanna is a great single seller, 12#1 singles and a lot of her singles sell millions. But that is where the Rihanna reign lets up guys. Im tired of the Navy hyping her up, outside of singles,she isn’t winning. Her albums sales, tours,movies,clothing lines,perfums,etc.. Dont do that good compared to other artists. If you are talking about her standards sure,they are fine,but compared to other artists they are not doing so well. The only thing she can actually say she has a hold on,are her singles.

    On another note,all of this Beyonce Vs Rihanna post on every one of their posts in getting very irritating. Im not a fan of either,BUT I will say this,when it comes to talent overall,Beyonce wins handsdown. When it comes to singles,Rihanna wins hand down. When it comes to overall success with their solo careers,Beyonce wins.

    PIU – 1 MILL

    LOVE SONG – 500K

    Diamonds – 3 OR 4 MILL

    Stay – 2.5


    ADD THE WW THE UNA ERA COULD HAVE SHIFTED MORE THAN 20 MILLION RECORDS ( SINGLES AND ALBUM TOTAL ) What an amazing era for a girl who the say has not talent, is a 1 hit wonder who drops every months. I CANNOT WAIT FOR ALBUM 8 IN 2014 – WHAT WILL SHE DO NEXT,


  65. UNA era sold 20 mill records so far…… May 2, 2013

    Rihanna will be the biggest selling female of all time at this rate. Madonna is only real comp. She will outsell brit , celine and whit.

    • . : : h 2 o : : . May 2, 2013

      Not on albums though..

    • Suicide Blonde May 2, 2013

      But Madonna has sold 219,000,000 albums and more than 120 million singles Worldwide…..

      • UNA era sold 20 mill records so far…… May 2, 2013

        OK, biggest black singer female of all time . She will surpass whitney

      • UNA era sold 20 mill records so far…… May 2, 2013

        biggest black female


        The end

      • Suicide Blonde May 2, 2013

        That’s for sure, Beyonce could…..NEVA.

      • Likica May 2, 2013

        Madonna will always be the best selling female artist of all time and The only Queen of Pop, the most impactful female artist of all time.

        Rihanna will probably become an icon for younger generations.

      • LaurieBlue. May 2, 2013

        She may surpass her singles wise but overall she will never surpass whitney!! Whitney will always be superior!!

        Whitney Houston – 25 Million WW
        Whitney – 25 Million WW
        Im Your Baby Tonight – 13 Million WW
        My Love Is Your Love – 13 Million WW
        The Bodyguard – 45 Million WW

        But congrats to Rihanna on her SLAYAGE!!

        biggest black female


        The end


        But when you exclude $1 sales :

        Beyonce (65M)

        Rihanna (29M)


        Nice try though @ Sybil and @ Suicide Blonde.

      • Likica May 3, 2013

        But you exclude DC and take in consideration Beyonce’s solo career it is:

        Rihanna – 29-30
        Beyonce – 25

        She needed a girl group to get them album sales with 4 studio albums, 4 compilation albums, 2 remix albums and 1 EP and her 4 studio albums, 4 live albums, 2 EPS and 1 compilation album.. :/ Plus 1999s music market vs 2013s? Are you 4real? If she is such a good album seller why can’t she do 10 million in her solo career?

        Madonna will always be the biggest selling female artist of all time and Rihanna/Beyonce won’t come close to her.

      • Emeral May 3, 2013

        @Likica Beyonce only has 4 official studio albums and is not that far behind Rihanna, doesnt that tell you something?

      • Manda May 3, 2013

        The delusion! You forgetting about the likes of Tina Turner, Diana Ross, Mariah Carey and many more who s*** all over R******. The NERVE to say she will surpass Whitney lmao.

  70. Olivia May 2, 2013

    Rihanna only slays in singles, what new though! The Navy will stay reaching and dragging with their singles stats haha! When it comes to overall success she is pretty basic. She has not don’t half the major things Beyonce has done in her career. Beyonce has epic milestones and performances that’s will be looked back on cited in the future. Her star is just huge and that’s without all the #1s under the sun or need to change her hair color to stay releveant. Sometimes sales are very misleading at the time because even though Stay has sold more, it wont have half as much impact as ballads like Listen and Halo. Rihannas music (besides umbrella) fades out very quickly. I don’t stan for either of the girls but Beyonce just has that edge for me because she is more respected and people already look up to her like a young legend which says something. But congrats Rihanna you cant knock her hustle right now.

  71. Vee May 2, 2013

    The biggest thing Rihanna has had impact with is Umbrella and the Red hair. The biggest impact Beyonce has had is with Singles ladies and Crazy in Love. They are both impactful in their own ways. But Beyonces performances also have impact. What really memorable performances does Rihanna have? Beyonces done things like sing for the president, perform at the Superbowl be the first black female headliner at Glastonbury, I could go on. Rihanna slays in singles but half them songs wont be remembered remembered properly years from now. A song doesn’t need to go #1 to have impact in the long term. #1s are just a reflection of hype at the time. I like stay, but its a totally average ballad and will fizzle out with time. The fact that Rihanna slays with singles, Beyonce makes up for the fact she is recognised as one of the best performers and will go down as that and vice versa. I mean, you only have to look at the celebs that go to watch Beyonce to get a jist of how quality her shows are.

    • Emeral May 3, 2013

      I see no lies. Especially the part about performances.

  72. Beyond amazing May 2, 2013

    Why do you guy’s always have to mention Queen Bey’s name?!!!! Don’t be mad because my favorite can perform live with no new music and have her tour still sell out, don’t be mad because my favorite actually has REAL TALENT and your’s doesn’t. The only things she’s good for is blowing her back out, grabing her p**** on stage, and f****** singing off motherfucking key!!!!! And did a Ciara stan have the nerve to mention Quieen Bey’s name, stating, well I am just going to paraphrase it any who it went something like this ” Wow Beyoncé couldn’t get a hit song with four, but that non talented hope can. FIRST OF ALL MY F****** FAV IS SLAYING THE HELL OUTTA YOUR FAV RIGHT NOW, WELL HELL SHE ALWAYS HAS AND SHE ALWAYS WILL. And that non talented b**** R**** is slayiong the f*** out of your gfav right now, so you really shouldn’t be talking. Don’t get me started on that Christina stan, girl are you serious with that bull you just spit?? When was the last time your fav had a hit song??? Crickets….. i’ll wait. Your fav cant even be booked for someone’s opening act. How pathetic. HAHAH!

    • . : : h 2 o : : . May 3, 2013

      Beyonce has an access to a billion, so . . I wouldn’t say “Rihanna pays her bills”.

      More like . . Rihanna pays Blue Ivy’s bills 😆 It should be changed to that!

      BTW considering Rihanna has FIVE flop albums who sold exactly as bad as “4” (2.8 million BTW) give or take a few 100k’s in London – Rihanna’s main market – you can kiss my ass with that FLOPPED shade.

    • Likica May 3, 2013

      Actually it’s more than 100k. AGLM and TTT are over 3 million, 3.5-4 and 3.3. 😉 more like 500k and more. You shouldn’t be shading London market like that when your fav can dream of sales like that there and most of her sales are local LOL. Rihanna has sold more albums than Dc’s and Beyonce combined in the UK, not to mention the countries like France and Germany. And Destiny’s Child debut album did as bad as MOTS, if not worse since it charted only in the USA and Canada despite being released in 1998, I repeat, 1998 when everyone could sell easily 10 million LOL. Rihanna’s money has nothing to do with Beyonce and Jay-Z and your shade is tired.

      • Emeral May 3, 2013

        It really irks me when people call Beyonce local just because of stats. Makes it seem like shes not big in anywhere other than the US. Being from London myself, even though Rihanna slays in stats over here, if you didnt go and look it up you wouldnt know who is the bigger seller out of the both because they are both really big. Rihanna is shoved down our throats more because she always seems to have something out. In fact Beyonce is generally more talked about as the inspiration and Rihanna the it girl. When Beyonce has albums out, her songs get just as much play on radio, Beyonce has her own TV specials over here, has over 3 million people over here after her concert tickets here and headlines at all our major festivals. She is hardly a lessor just because shes sold less, which is clearly what you were implying.

  74. ming May 2, 2013



    2.5-3 MILLION SOLD for just one single ,..THAT IS WHAT beyonces 4LOP ENTIRE ALBUM SOLD..

    love you robyn…

  75. rogerh May 3, 2013

    I’m reading all these comments and I just can’t @ h2o dragging the whole fanbase.

    • . : : h 2 o : : . May 3, 2013


      Like, I can’t believe the Nazi are still as basic as Rihanna’s album sales when it comes to “dragging”.

      • Taeys May 3, 2013

        Can you tell me why calling someone syblle is an insult here? Please teach digger bey how to drag because gworl… No I mean smh

      • . : : h 2 o : : . May 3, 2013

        Me and @RichNBlack just gave her that name because she’s CRAZY and keeps changing her name everytime Rihanna farts in her face.

  76. Taeys May 3, 2013

    Rihanna is a successful w****! I typed no lies chile… And y’all will read none because none was said, read, written, or typed in this post! Oh and Ciara is a flop. bow down b******!

  77. Emeral May 3, 2013

    Yet they cant just celebrate without bringing Bey into it. Thats how you know she affects their mentality.

  78. JOHNVIDAL May 3, 2013

    Who the hell had the nerve to say Rihanna will surpass Whitney Houston´s achievements??? Or Janet´s?
    How the hell can you base the success of a career on radio hit singles???? Remember Olivia Newton-John??? She had a good amount of hit singles, one of them being one of the most successful ever on the Hot 100. Does somebody praise her or remember her nowadays? I mean in a daily basis when talking about legendary artists? NO. And I love her. Everybody I know fell in love with the movie Grease, etc, etc. But she is not a huge musician or voice and never slayed the album charts, and that´s what makes people remember your slayage the most. The same will happen with Rihanna. Hot singles prepared for radio don´t last decades, no matter the amount.
    The nerve to say she will be the most successful black woman in history… So sad these kids

  79. anonymous May 3, 2013

    Thats great, however its sad, the artist only gets 8 cents from single digital downloads. 240,000 from 3,000,000 goes to the artist.
