Rihanna On Beating Beyonce Record: ‘The Power Of God Can Bring Joy Unspeakable’

Published: Sunday 7th Jul 2013 by David

As ‘Pour It Up’ makes its way to 2 million units sold, Pop nocalist Rihanna has celebrated the news that her single ‘Stay’ has now outsold Beyonce‘s 2008 hit ‘Halo‘- making it the highest selling ballad by a black female artist in the US.

An interesting story below…

 

Upon its release on December 23rd 2008, ‘Halo‘ surpassed digital sales of 3,123,000 units by October 2012, after peaking at #5 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Now, by way of 3,298,000 units sold by Rihanna’s ‘Stay’ since January 7th of this year, the performer is now claiming that this feat has seen break ‘Halo‘s record for being the highest selling ballad by a black female artist in the US.

Pretty strange, considering the 4,591,000 units sold by Whitney Houston‘s ‘I Will Always Love You’ by 2009, or the 3.5 million+ copies sold by Tracy Chapman‘s ‘Fast Car‘, after its April 1988 release.

In intentionally spreading the misinformation cooked up by the fan above, the ‘Fading‘ performer went on to tweet:

Indeed.

Alas, with many a Beyonce fan billing her a ‘purveyor of tall tales’, here’s hoping the hours that follow see her explain this would be record further…and figure out a way to score herself a second #1 album.

Until then, join us in enjoying one of our favorite numbers below!

  11. Whitneyslayedyofavsvocals July 7, 2013

    the probem with her is she realy want to compete with bey she doesnt verify facts before retweeting which makes her a fool coz her stans just tweet s*** I am glad you pointed out abt Whitney I am huge Whitney stan and I was shocked when she retweet that then I realised that she realy want Beyonce spot so bad not that I care for Beyonce. at lest Rihanna does communicate with her stanbase unlike Beyonce who think she is superior Rihanna does rally her stanbase to vote to buy to watch the videos thats why she just retweet anything they tweet. I hope Rihanna did see this message from Beynce tho I’ve been fortunate to accomplish things that the younger generation of queens dream of accomplishing. Anyways R.I.P Whitney

    • Beauty July 7, 2013

      But…Rihanna has accomplished things that Bey and the younger queens dream of accomplishing, as well!

      • TRUTH July 7, 2013

        Like what? Beyonce, Pink, Adele, Katy Perry, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera even Taylor Swift have sold more albums and accomplished things Rihanna never will.
        They sell real albums not downloads

    • MuiMui July 7, 2013

      Rihanna do not want to compete that is the media and Fans doing that. Beyonce has always worked her b*** off and what is wrong with Rihanna doing the same dam thing.

      Supply and Demand make it seem like they are competing,and any way if Rihanna want to compete with Beyonce then tell us what is Kelly, Ciara,Nicki, then doing?

    • MuiMui July 7, 2013

      @WHITNEY RIP,
      Rihanna want Rihanna spot and it seem she is holding that spot down very well. Rihanna has figured it all out and that is she do not have to ask for Beyonce permission to be the best she can possibly be without getting accused of trying to take Beyonce spot, WHAT IN THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU? CAN’T RIHANNA BE GREAT WITHOUT BEING ACCUSED OF WRONG DOING?

      If Beyonce is all that then You would never have to debate whos taking who’s spot now would you , since it is clear that in the Endorsements Beyonce is way ahead of many and with Music and Her Chart success for the last several years now Beyonce lacks behind there are many who has out shinned her in the chart and selling of music department.
      And remember Beyonce drops
      Music/albums for fun Rihanna then are working for a pay check.

      Rihanna clowned the charts and beyonce chart success when her chart success was given praise by Billboard last year with that #1 spot with chart success for the last two decades. Rihanna was #1 and Beyonce was #16 and that says it all Trust.
      Whitney was the Voice and Whitney was Loved, she is still being compared to Rihanna now that beats all, BECAUSE A WHITNEY FAN HAS NEVER FELT THE URGE TO COMMENT ON A RIHANNA POST BEFORE, OKAY. Told you many of you will try and compare Rihanna to the Easter Bunny to try and get your point across and it do not mean squat, because people know what this is all about, now don’t we, ITS ALWAYS ABOUT BEYONCE BEING better then Rihanna Them.

      Rihanna Ft with Eminem has sold the most with over 5 Million , try and sweep that under the rug Whitney Fan who is using Whitney the Voice againg Rihanna to try and help put the shine on Rihanna.

      Where is Whitney’s 6 Grammy for her One Album, In One Night , like Beyonce, Adele has gotten? Rihanna should have Gotten 8 Grammy with “Umbrella” but since it was Rihanna well you already know that would have been to much like Right. Whitney album has out paced all of Beyonce Solo Efforts and is one of the Top Ten Best Selling Albums of all times????????
      Let us debate that.
      Over 44-Million albums sold and Certified over 17x where is Whitney’s Grammy’s for allof that hard Work??????

      And i would love to see Samatha post a article on the biggest selling Tours of the last several years that too will be a great talking Point, don’t you all think?

      I was thinking that there was something wrong with those stats. Rihanna, I’m not sure what God you’re talking about with your antics.
      I really can’t stand all of these essays stating that Rihanna sold out a stadium in France. So! Nothing about what she may do for charity, nothing about educational achievements, nothing of . Anything really.

    • whitney did it better July 7, 2013

      @ rita and beyonce scared

      U are celebrating Rihanna being on the cover of US wekl for being beat down????

      Hmmm. Well if that makes u proud too bad.. BTW, Whitney was on the cover of National Inquirer, Globe , other tabloids years and years ago.

      Whitney did everything RIhanna did and more.

      When RIhanna goes 17 x platinum like the Bodyguard she can be compared to Whitney…..

      But for now u can continue to celebrate her abusive relationships.

  12. rita and beyonce scared of rihanna July 7, 2013

    Beyonce must feel so stupid making that song ‘ bown down b****’ If only she knew what was around the corner.

    just looked on wikepedia list of biggest selling acts.
    In the acts that have sold 100 million. Emimen, Rihanna, Britney etc.
    Beyonce is the acts that have sold 75 million.
    So, Rih is now the biggest black singer. Only Donna summer at estimated 130 and Whitney who was in the 200 mill are ahead of her. She will outsell whitney and be the biggest black singer after Micheal jackson.
    Beyonce is at 75 mill, according to wiki and she will never sell big a gain. I dont even think she will release albums. WOW, and they said she was a one hit wonder
    I have just seen Rita flop whora on twitter, big talking about her second album will shut it down. You, see….rih does not need to go on twitter to brag, she already knows she is 4 biggest selling black act.
    Michael
    Whiteny
    Donna summer ( est )
    Rihanna
    Janet
    Tina
    These are biggest black acts in HISTORY.
    LOL LOL NOW WHO’S THE LEGEND? Now who should bow down!

      Whitney was not in Rihanna Era as much as Beyonce is.
      Rihanna know what shes talking about , you burnt out fossicles are running like sand through a hour glass because you know we are talking about Beyonce and not WHITNEY.
      The only record Beyonce ever held was getting them Grammys while many DESERVING Artist sit idly by and looked on because they know her music did not live up to the Hype of Her Grammy Wins.

  18. Ariana’sGrand July 7, 2013

    I guess the Navy didn’t bother to read the article.

  19. rita and beyonce scared of rihanna July 7, 2013

    In terms of biggest black females in History, only Donna sumer and Whiney are ahead of rih. Donna is 130, but the said est, so it could be less. Whit, is naturally at sky high 200 mill range. But, 25 Rih is 100 and counting, so outsell Donna summer with ease and go head to head with Whit’s record. Within 10 years she will outsell Whit to be the biggest selling black women OF ALL TIME; this makes her a legend, she already is nearing legend status; In Barbados, she is legend and icon; in fact, she, like Bob marley are icons of the west indies

    • TRUTH July 7, 2013

      You are the reason no one takes the Navy seriously. Tina Turner is light years ahead of Rihanna. janet Jackson is as well. Brandy and Aaliyah have sold more albums. Rihanna will NEVER outsell Whitney Houston because Whitney sold 170 million albums. Rihanna has sold 27 million albums. She is no icon and never will be. Icons make GREAT music not crappy fast food digital singles

      • rita and beyonce scared of rihanna July 7, 2013

        WHO cares, Rih has still outsold Tina Turner and janet. SO you can suck on that and choke or all i care. I am talking record sales and Why is 200 mill and rih us 100 total record sales, so, yes, she could outsell whitney.

        Brandy and aahliyah have hot even crossed even sold 50 million records, let alone touch Rih. SHE IS AN ICON AND LEGEN – THE WEST INDIANS WILL CLAIM HER SO

        HA HA HA TRUTH HURTS AND I AM PROUD.

    • JOHNVIDAL July 7, 2013

      Are you really counting the cheap digital singles when it comes to name the biggest sellers in history??? LOLOLOL Rihanna will never be and impact the world like those other true greats.

      • . : : h 2 o : : . July 7, 2013

        Yeah.. $1 digital tracks are counted as records just like $12 albums used to.

        Rihannna Nazi is a joke.. it’s official

    • MuiMui July 7, 2013

      RITA WHORA Listen a truth with their lying ass,always bitter and mad because they can’t stand to see Rihanna shinning Bright, so less get ready for them to dig holes and try to put Rihanna away like they always do.
      None of Rihanna fans give a shyt about people taking the Navy serious the navy could care less about who takes them serious at least they are not always trying to tear people success down all the dam time.
      They just have to be negative,they don’t know any other way i guess.

      We are not Talking about Tina and Janet because they are light years AHEAD of Beyonce too who has been going strong TWICE the years that Rihanna has and Beyonce is working Harder and and snatch and grabbing Deals harder and stronger then Rihanna ever has. Beyonce is working over time looking high and low for the BIGGEST ENDORSEMENT DEALS IN THE WORLD TO LASH ON TOO AND THAT MUCH IS CLEAR FOR THE WORLD TO SEE.
      RIHANNA them are working for a living Beyonce living is already made Beyonce is not NEEDY BUT GREEDY and can’t stand to share that spot light that with others especially Rihanna.

      • FAF July 7, 2013

        This is what I be saying . . . Nicki talked about it Billboard changed the rules so now digital singles every few units counts for record sales, too. So its unfair because when you compare someone ike Brandy who sold 17mil WW off an ALBUM of PHYSICAL COPIES! Do you think if you added singles tally she wouldnt be at about 75mil WW too? Rihanna has sold a lot of SINGLES, not a lot of albums thats why wikipedia has her at such a high ranking. I bet if you go back and count Ciara, Aaliyah, etc SINGLES (back before they were considered slaying in singles) today, songs like “Hot Like Fire” would be gold, 4 pg letter triple platinum, etc. JUST BECAUSE RIHANNA HAS ALL HER STATS ACCOUNTED FOR AND SOMEONE ELSE DOES NOT, DOES NOT MEAN THEY HAVE NOT SOLD MORE! Janet has millions of records that Bllboard does not even count because of the old BMG music clubs from the 80s and 90s that aren’t counted

  22. rita and beyonce scared of rihanna July 7, 2013

    How is she lying,? She did not say it. Thye meant digital sales. Either way, when will Rita whora get a number 1 album in the USA?

    According to Wiki, she is the 3rd best selling black singer in history. And she is closing in on Donna summer, so she will second to whit. HA HA HA

    • whitney did it better July 7, 2013

      Whitney, Michael, Janet, Usher, R kelly, Alicia Keys, DC3, and Tina have all sold more albums than her.

      Stop lying!

      U are talking about them cheap singles.

      Lets talk about the album sales…. Dont nobody care about no singles sales LOL

  23. Rihanna is a LEGEND! July 7, 2013

    Killing Beyonce’s career one step at a time. Let’s not forget Beyonce’s last #1 was in 2008
    R.I.P ha career

    • rita and beyonce scared of rihanna July 7, 2013

      R. I. P to the girl you use to see, her days are over.

      The irony was that, it was a song, drake wrote for rih, but accepted, by Rih’s buddy, Rita whora.

      LOL the irony….

    • . : : h 2 o : : . July 7, 2013

      How can you kill someone’s career and in the same time have him earn more money than you… Even with not a f****** new single out?

      • rita and beyonce scared of rihanna July 7, 2013

        She is older and came out before her so of course she has more money but at 25 rih is worth 184 mill so, when she is old like bey, she will be richer.

      • . : : h 2 o : : . July 7, 2013

        But that’s not what happened this year, dear Sybil 😥

  25. rih rox July 7, 2013

    I am soooooooo confused right now!

  26. Slaylor Swift July 7, 2013

    Top 5 black female musicians imo

    1.Whitney
    2.Janet
    3. Beyonce
    4.Rihanna
    5. Nicki

    • rita and beyonce scared of rihanna July 7, 2013

      THE OFFICIAL BEST SELLING BLACK WOMEN

      Whitney

      Donna summer

      Rihanna

      Janet

      Tina Turner

      Bare in mind, Donna summer’s 130 is an est and rih is 25 AT 100 MILL so that means rih is on course to be second to to Whit. She needs to aim to Break Whit’s record – she can do it.

      • . : : h 2 o : : . July 7, 2013

        Beyonce sold more albums than Rihanna in total… I don’t know what you’re talking about

      • rita and beyonce scared of rihanna July 7, 2013

        No, she has not sold more album or record. RIH IS LSITED AT 100 MILL AND BEY ONLY 75;. RIH sold 30 mill albums and BEY 23. NO one counts group sales, cos that would mean kelly rowland is one of teh biggest selling females if we add group sales.

        BEY now stands as solo singer and her SOLO SALES DO NOT TOUCH RIH ON THE BIG SSCALE.

        100 RECORDS – RIH

        75 – BEY

        Take it up with the music industry if u are mad. I am talking total, final GLOBAL RECORD AND RIH HAS HER MURKED, SHE sells / sold more beyonce, at a faster time and she is more global. MOST OF BEY SALES came from the USA, where she hails from.

      • . : : h 2 o : : . July 7, 2013

        Blah blah blah blah blah records my ass.

        She’s a recording artist who’s supposted to be selling albums, if she’s not selling albums then she’s a FLOP!

        No one gives a s*** about $1 digital tracks but struggling stanbases and their struggling favs who fail to be successful anywhere else.

        And WHEN it comes to albums, Beyonce sold more than 61M+ and 4 million music DVDs, while Rihanna sold 29M+, so………

  27. rita and beyonce scared of rihanna July 7, 2013

    2012: ” Rita whora is a better singer, that rih and rih jocked her swag ” Roc nation are behind her and she will shut rih down ”

    2013 ” When beyonce does the superbowl, she will snatch wigs and slay lives. ” There was even a doctored picture of beyonce pushing a shopping cart with Rih’s chopped head in it.

    Summer of 2013? Who is laughing now?

  28. etone July 7, 2013

    F*** THE BEYONCE THIEF PIC YOU POSTED INSTEAD OF RIHANNA. you can jam that b**** down people throat all you want.

  30. BeachHouseBritney July 7, 2013

    So she was lying? Oh my.

  31. Slaylor Swift July 7, 2013

    Do you guys know Rihanna is the only black female with a Number 1 single since 2008..

  32. Mother Monster July 7, 2013

    R.i.p bey.. 🙁

  33. TaylorWins July 7, 2013

    The fact that two Taylor albums outsold Rihanna’s entire discography though.

    • rita and beyonce scared of rihanna July 7, 2013

      I mean, Taylor is blonde, country singer, so what do u expect? The good news, is that Rih now outsold, Shania twain. Rih has outsold Dolly parton too, In fact Garth brooks has sold 100 mill or so and rih is at 100mill but she is young black girl, who was barely supported by her label.

      So, in my book, rih is the REAL WINNER.

  34. rita and beyonce scared of rihanna July 7, 2013

    The songwriter and producer of ‘ stay ‘, Mikkey Ekko, just wrote this: ” Thanks to everyone who has supported stay along the way. You guys are amazing. Huge news today xx 100% confirmed by the songwriter, co producer. She did not lie.

    ” Thank you@ rihanna. Humbled and honoured to be part of Stay. Congrats to you, too! – Mikkey Ekko

    SO now what SAM? I wonder what Rita whora and all other haters think?

  35. RitasLipstick July 7, 2013

    Rihanna tell lies, Beyonce makes hits. Rihanna tells lies, Karrueche has Chris.

    • Mother Monster July 7, 2013

      & Rita sucks d****

      • RitasLipstick July 7, 2013

        You DID say she copies Rihanna didn’t you?

    • rita and beyonce scared of rihanna July 7, 2013

      Mikkey ekko the songwriter confirmed this. Beyonce has not had a hit for years. Keae have Chris, he has no business being with an A List legend, no when he has not even sold 50 millon records. Chris is back on his low class level, where he belongs.

  36. what? July 7, 2013

    yeh yeh… fact is those oldies sold more, but… in these days relevant shorties music business you can score that a given she on top of the pile.

    🙂

  37. Draggin4MrsCarter July 7, 2013

    But why does she have seven albums and less than 10 million sold?
    Where are her number one album(S)?
    Why do we never hear her sing a capella?
    Why can’t she keep a man?

    • rita and beyonce scared of rihanna July 7, 2013

      She has sold 30 mill albums WW. She is only 25. How many 25 are married? Halle berry cannot keep a man, your point?

      • . : : h 2 o : : . July 7, 2013

      • FAF July 7, 2013

        THANK YOUUUUUUUUUUUU! 30mil WW after 7 albums? Thats a fucken FLOP LMAOOOO Ciara sold 8mil off just 2 eras ! That means even if she keeps flopping (Fantasy ride 300k ww, Basic Instinct 200k WW) she still will be at 30mil after releasing 10-12 more albums. QUANTITY=/=QUALITY!

  38. Paula July 7, 2013

    Lmao rihanna is the ONLY artist I know who tweets or retweets
    every achievement they ever get. And 9 times out of 10 it’s false information!!
    Lol she’s is so desperate for beyonces spot. But until she can sell out world tours in minutes,
    Wow people with her performances, win 6 grammys in one night. And sell over 180 million records. This will never happen!

    • Beauty July 7, 2013

      U know that Rihanna usually posts ACCURATE info. Why lie? Why would she want Beyonce’s when she is surpassing it with her own spot? And, truth be told…Beyonce sold her tickets off of lies and false promotion of new music. She fooled her own fans for the money.

      • rita and beyonce scared of rihanna July 7, 2013

        According to Billabord, Beyonce tour in Europe was not even sold at. It as like at 94% sold out. and the hive were sending threatening messages to billbaord.

      • Lolz July 7, 2013

        You didnt think Beyonce was going to add any more legs huh? Oceana has just been announced on top of Latin America and a second US leg… Stay Tuned

      • rita and beyonce scared of rihanna July 7, 2013

        LOL

        Yup she will be going to oceania in October, buyt no stadiums will be added. As expected. the funny this is, She goes to canada In november, then the USA. I guess that means no album is coming year. TEE HEE all that superbowl hype about this album being her biggest era ever, was shut down by rih, who is erasing her legacy day by day.

        PS: Rih is going to Puerto rico and Barbados; her tour is far from slowing down, as is her career. HA HA HA HA

        Why is Braqzil the only country she plays stadium? Talk about local.

      • Lolz July 7, 2013

        Rihanna is not doing stadiums in oceana either. Shes not even doing latin america. How do you know Beyonce wont add any more stadiums. The demand for her in south africa to name just one is huge. You also said she wasnt going to add any more legs.

      • rita and beyonce scared of rihanna July 7, 2013

        Rih is doing stadiums in South africa. LOL LOL Rih has sone stadiums at 25. Something beyonce could not do. Diamonds world tour is adding dates too.

        WHO gives a f*** about south america, rih runs EUROPE. That is more importanyt market. Getting number 1 in the UK means more than brazil

        The good thing beyoce flop album is not coming out this year, or next year.

      • Rach July 7, 2013

        @rita and beyonce scared of rihanna

        Beyonce did stadiums on her first tour in Asia in Japan etc She did stadiums on her 2nd tour which gross over 120 million ww.

        The Mrs Carter Show has grossed over 23 million in the first 14 dates. Diamonds tour grossed 14 million in the first 14 dates LMAO!!!!

  39. OVODasher July 7, 2013

  40. Beauty July 7, 2013

    Rihanna did not intentionally post misinformation. The truth is that she still has beat beyonce in sales. Y’all love to call Rih petty, but this is the most petty thing I have ever seen! And this is why Black people will never rise, we constantly tear each other down and gloat about it!! But…the POWER OF RIHANNA IS REAL. There’s so much power in her name, she didn’t lie about that!!

    • BeyWhoUWanna July 7, 2013

No wonder she doesnt like Rihanna shes so immature and petty. I think theres more that meets the eye with Rihanna. Nobody ever has a bad word to say about Beyonce as a person but I cant say the same for Rihanna. I was watching an interesting interview when Waka Flaka Flame was talking about Ri aswell.

As well as the immense commercial success, Halo also attracted huge critical acclaim being nominated for 3 Grammys and winning 1 the song has since won numerous other accolades. Whitney Houston’s ‘I Will Always Love You’ remains the best selling female ballad of all time having sold over 15 million physical copies, one can only imagine how much the single would have sold post digital revolution. none the less congratulations Rihanna on her “best-selling” ballad stay

  78. JOHNVIDAL July 7, 2013

    Well… seeing how these slow kids and young laughable stars think music started in 2005, of course Rihanna will think she has the best selling ballad by a black female in the USA. It would be good for her to learn that she´s only taking into account the cheap digital era though 🙂

  79. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) July 7, 2013

    She can “reign” in the $1 digital tracks department as much as she wants.. Beyonce – the biggest and most successful Black female of the 21st century – remains unbothered with 65M+ albums and music DVDs sold…..something Rihanna is never seeing anytime soon

    • rita and beyonce scared of rihanna July 7, 2013

      beyonce is not the biggest. Rih is . Rih is the biggest black women in other countries like the UK TOO. Beyonce has only sold 25 or so million albums . The f*** u mean, no one counts group sales.

      • . : : h 2 o : : . July 7, 2013

        No one counts group sales, but certainly Billboard – the biggest chart company in the world – do count them.

        So again, Beyonce as the biggest and highest-selling female of the 21st century in the world has sold at least 65 million+ albums and music DVDs worldwide.

      • . : : h 2 o : : . July 7, 2013

        Black female*

      • mya July 7, 2013

        Beyonce has sold 30 million albums ww with 4 solo albums

  82. Suicide Blonde July 7, 2013

    Congrats to her, btw, I love Fleetwood Mac.

  83. bravo!! July 7, 2013

    WoW!!! It a studio track! Now, Tell Rihanna to Sing & tap dance at the sametime. Beyonce not bothered, worried, concerned or give to f****. Plus back then Singles was not big as they are now…Tell Rihanna to catch up on Ablum sales.

  84. godonna army July 7, 2013

    I’d like to know about her feeling after getting dropkicked from the top 10 on Forbes this year too…and having beyonce effortlessly make millions more than her

    • . : : h 2 o : : . July 7, 2013

      tbh..

    • you tried it July 7, 2013

      probably around the same way bey felt when Rih was number 4 and beyonce was out the top 10 the year before.

  85. Lou July 7, 2013

    Beyonces on her mind. Just like shes on everyone and their mamas. That mind control.

  86. FAF July 7, 2013

    This is what I be saying . . . Nicki talked about it Billboard changed the rules so now digital singles every few units counts for record sales, too. So its unfair because when you compare someone ike Brandy who sold 17mil WW off an ALBUM of PHYSICAL COPIES! Do you think if you added singles tally she wouldnt be at about 75mil WW too? Rihanna has sold a lot of SINGLES, not a lot of albums thats why wikipedia has her at such a high ranking. I bet if you go back and count Ciara, Aaliyah, etc SINGLES (back before they were considered slaying in singles) today, songs like “Hot Like Fire” would be gold, 4 pg letter triple platinum, etc. JUST BECAUSE RIHANNA HAS ALL HER STATS ACCOUNTED FOR AND SOMEONE ELSE DOES NOT, DOES NOT MEAN THEY HAVE NOT SOLD MORE! Janet has millions of records that Bllboard does not even count because of the old BMG music clubs from the 80s and 90s that aren’t counted. units =/= ALBUMS! Donna and Whitney are counted as PHYSICAL ALBUMS SOLD WW! Not digital singles! Rihanna can not go head to head with either of them & never will! She would have to sell another 70mil with her next few records! NOT HAPPENING

  87. B****** ARE A MESS July 7, 2013

    That reign though…

  88. . : : h 2 o : : . July 7, 2013

    *** Walks out, leaving Sybil on the floor dragged **

    • rita and beyonce scared of rihanna July 7, 2013

      LOL LOL I take math is not taught in your ghetto country as it is in the USA.

      DIL – 8 MILL

      B DAY – 6 MILL

      IAMSF – 7 MILL

      4 – 2.1

      THAT IS 23 MILLION ALBUM SOLD, MOST OF WHICH COME FROM JUST HER COUNTRY.

      HA HA HA Where do u get 65 milliion albums from? Or are you adding her group sales? I guess Kelly rowland has sold over 60 million albums too.

      Also, u said beyonce has proven she can play a stadium in the UK. No she has not, SHE HAS NEVER HEADLINED ANY UK history.

      HA HA HA Ha WHAT little crappy sales for so called legend. HA HA HA HA

    • rita and beyonce scared of rihanna July 7, 2013

      The 5th album – whenever that comes out will not even go platinum, it will flop worse than kanye etc. 4 sold 2.1 WW, but 1.3 came from the usa, so only 700k of that flop LP was sold WW. Watch the hew album sell even less in the USA AND WW.

      Album 5 will not even sell a million and THERE WILL BE NO HITS.

      • mya July 7, 2013

        4 sold 2.1 million? How when it sold over 1.3 million and over 650 k in the UK LMAO! 4 has sold 3 million worldwide.

  89. Rach July 7, 2013

    Rihanna stays reaching as usual. Best selling black female ballad? The song will be forgotten in 2 years. When the digital age and new rules counts practically everything besides illegal downloads as sales what do you expect? Beyonce DID THAT with her ballad Halo minus all that.

  90. MINGXXXXXX July 7, 2013

    beyonce is tired , same f***** lyrics of ridin with her man outlaws don’t care s***.
    how f***** boring.
    no wonder Rihanna is Outselling her old dry hits.

  91. Megan July 7, 2013

    Haha she is really childish and pathetic.

  92. mulaah July 7, 2013

    but how come rihanna sells so much but her earnings are so dissappointing?? i still dont understand how come beyonce makes so much without a successful album…has rihanna ever earn around $80 mil or above within a year?? i do love both of them and i hv to thank rihanna for keeping me busy and entertained with unapologetic this year….i cant wait for beyonce new album..Rise up is such a nice song wish she cld hv just released it…….i love both of these women coz they inspire me to dream big but above all they make me proud to b AFRICAN. anybody from Southern Africa on this blog?

  93. Common Sense July 7, 2013

    I’m surprised no one takes offense at her God comment. Apparently God is the one buying, watching, and sharing her shitty singles and videos not her sheeple fans. Not to mention is shows her ignorant arrogance. I guess millions of starving African children aren’t deserving of God’s “joy?” 9_9

  94. Kylla July 7, 2013

    If u buy all your items online, isnt it still a purchase? As long as an album is bout its a sale physical or digital. Digital allows a bigger outlet. All our technology is digital honestly most ppl have a music player on their phones or an iPod. Cd purchase for wat?

  95. Micks July 7, 2013

    Well when Youtube views and streaming counts without needing to physically purchase its not surprising. TBH Rihanna needs to tone it down she comes across very basic with her bragging.

  96. Hit her again, Chris July 7, 2013

    ROFLMAO@Rihanna retweeting incorrect info. about herself. What an airhead!

    In the meantime, Beyonce’s greatest hits tour is still outselling Rihanna’s 666 Tour that half the time she don’t even bother to show up for…and Beyonce still has more endorsements…and Beyonce — this being the most important — remains considerably wealthier than Rihanna. Beyonce was largely inactive last year, while Rihanna was out in the field picking Roc Nations cotton, and still Bey earned more money than her. How’s that?!

    LOL@people claiming that Rihanna is now the #1 black female star. Um, no. The #1 black female would be the one who can buy and sell the others…and records show that that ain’t Rihanna by a mother f*****’ long shot.

    Enjoy your incorrect retweet Navy. It’s really all you got. LOL

  97. Shawn152 July 7, 2013

    This is so typical of TGJ! Why even bring Beyonce into this and go “Rihanna on beating Beyonce’s record” When Bey didn’t even hold the record Whitney did? That’s disrespectful to Whitney #1 and #2 Messy as all hell! Smh…

  98. POP ROYALTY [RUDE BOY] July 7, 2013

    You Guys , She Retweeted that to P*** The Hive Off , they Spammed her Mentions and she thought about a shady Retweet. 😈

    Rihanna is shady, deal with it.

    I love her more and more each day i swear. 😀

    • Kisses July 7, 2013

      Why would she want to do that? Isnt she supposed to be an adult.

    • LDC July 7, 2013

      If that was truly her motivation, then the joke’s on her. All it did was prompt The Hive to discredit her by pointing out the truth and then laugh.

      • POP ROYALTY [RUDE BOY] July 7, 2013

        see how good she is ?

        She is making you Laugh while you are sad and miserable cuz beyonce didn’t make her album and keeping you alive via snippet-support.

  99. mya July 7, 2013

    LMAO! First there’s no record and it tere is a so called record LOL Leona Lewis Bleeding Love has sold 4.5 million the US. Also Alica Keys’ No One has sold More than Stay LMAO! FAILED. lmao!

  100. CzarM July 7, 2013

    Who cares about a single? The album that “Stay” is on has stalled at platinum, barely sold a million copies in the U.S. (and it’s WW sales ain’t nothing to gloat over either) and has fallen completely out of the top 60 on the Billboard 200 after less than a year, while other albums that were released before hers are still in the top 40 and are multi-platinum, or near it. Care to explain what’s happening there? Care to explain why out of seven albums, this tramp has only had one go multi-platinum, and that was only 2x platinum.

    “That reign?” Where? Rihanna’s music career is akin to a shipment of cheap, knock-off sunglasses selling out at the dollar store.

    Rihanna and her idiot fans like to celebrate the shallowest ‘victories’ (and in this case what you’re celebrating ain’t even true.) Oh to be born after 1992 and not know any better.

    F*** outta here with that b*******, ain’t nobody impressed.

    • etone July 7, 2013

      well let me explain, the song Stay sold more than halo beyonce and her sales continue to decline with each record release . as Rihanna out-sells beyonces biggest crossover hit.YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT BUSINESS or Math

      • mya July 7, 2013

        Single Ladies has outsold all of Rihanna’s 40 singles.

      • ^AKA^ July 7, 2013

        Nope. We Found Love has outsold it. Single Ladies was a local hit. It has sold 5.1-5.2 million in The USA *WFL did 5.02* but it wasn’t huge worldwide like We Found Love which did 1.3 million in The UK alone, more than any BEY’s single there. Check certifications and you will see that WFL was bigger in all countries (SL did better in the USA but just couple of copies).

  101. ha July 7, 2013

    the record must be “Digital” sales, which is before Whitney’s time

  102. Uyun July 7, 2013

    F*ck digital sales. Far as I’m concerned, the only real single successes to note and laud are physical units. It’s a little too easy to push a button and have the song. 45/Cassette/CD singles > iTunes downloads.

  103. third ward trill (aka quetta) July 7, 2013

    Rofl..weren’t the navy saying bey was bitter about rihanna but it seems its the other way around. She really is coming for bey spot but remember this

    As long as bey is alive she will always be #2

  104. JER July 8, 2013

    Not a BeYAWNce stan trying to clock someone for spreading false statistics.

  105. Rihanna killed beyho’s career July 8, 2013

    Are you forgetting Bow Down? BeUglyonce started it but too scared to say names or release. Rihanna is getting payback from that Bow Down antic. Rihanna is killin the game at age 25. Rihanna Stay outsold Halo.Fact!

  106. Rihanna killed beyho’s career July 8, 2013

    Make em bow down to their knees

    Got a thing for a king but ya not a king

    B**** I would die before I do a song with you

    Stay just passed Beyonce’s Halo in digital sales.

    She even shaded the HIVS. LMAO

  107. josh July 8, 2013

    anything and everything with this chick has to be compared to beyonce.. STOP. who cares.

    I love Rihanna. shes amazing.
    but still nobody can compare to beyonce. that b**** can sing live like no other.

  108. josh July 8, 2013

    and don’t start with beyonce lip synch the national anthem… she proved it the next time she sang it acapella. “Any questions” such a diva. <3

  109. Touché July 8, 2013

    Hmmmm…..Digital sales? Not really impressed but congrats to her anyway…

  110. Pascc March 19, 2014

    Despite the records sold, Beyoncé actually is HUGE nowadays. For example Beyoncé superbowl, Beyoncé new album, Beyoncé grammys, Beyoncé Inauguration, Beyoncé most search person 2013 worldwide online, Beyonce crushing Itunes sales records with her new album, selling 617 000 records in three days….etc… Plus I actually think that , adding to Rihanna’s alcohol, love and drugs image, Rihanna is the artist most todays young people grew up with listening as teens, rather than children (Beyonce blew up around the beginning of 2000s). Ofc Bey has had albums and famous song after Rihanna became big…. But I think like I said, that teenagers relates more to Riri’s image (s**, drunk parties) than Bey’s grown woman – single ladies, female empowerment image. But with that said Beyonce is still considered on par with all other legends of our history, Rihanna is just Mainstream music, she: as a performer or artist as a whole can’t touch Beyoncé. Riri’s is also very known for the whole Chris Brown incident.
