    Simply put: That muthafuckin Rihanna Reign.

    I loveeeee and I f****** love how Rih’s success gets rest of these stanbases all fired up. It’s so f****** good to be in the RihNavy. It literally is. How many artists can change their sound and still come out on top these days??? Not many.

    I really hope she slays again this Rihvember (see what I did there?)…But if not, it’s cool. A lot of albums are coming out this fall either way.

    So glad to see Adele and especially Lana on there.

    • Ballsy August 26, 2013

      Can you guys just write a shadeless article. Especially since as hard as you try her numbers deny your logic!

      • alicia1967 August 26, 2013

        Wow… My friend Emily has just married to a handsome wealthy man,
        They met through ~~ HookUpRich.com ~~ a good place to talk with successful wealthy guys and beautiful classy women (athletes,doctors,CEOs,models,lawyers,celebrities,etc….)perhaps you can have a try. Good luck to you.

    • Marina August 27, 2013

      Shes not even #1 lol.

  2. Kingstown August 26, 2013

    Slayyyyy my dear slay!

  3. QUEENBRITNEY August 26, 2013

    Sam please!!! Rihanna came in the top 20… BRITNEY SPEARS CAME IN HIGHER THAN SHE DID #ALLEYESONME #SEPT17 #8THERA

    • Ballsy August 26, 2013

      They stay on Rihanna’s puss. It’s like she blinds them from the other artist. Call it what you want but they are her biggest fans. Elite Navy!

      • QUEENBRITNEY August 26, 2013

        I think she lowkey sliding Sam a check.

  4. Ballsy August 26, 2013

    She is always consistently on top. No one should be surprised. So What else is new?

  5. Daniel Teflon August 26, 2013

    Lol S***** ass single artist is all she will be. Singles, singles and singles. She will never top a chart with albums. Unaflopagetic is her lowest selling album since GGGB. Her popularity is declining and I’m luving it. Unaflop, Rated X, TTT are all flops in the US lmao.

    • KING RIH August 26, 2013

      Platinum albums are flop albums now? that’s how the game is played now????? wow I would hate to hear what you have to say about albums that sell less than platinum or other artist who go platinum.

      u must be younger than 18. carry on

    • The Boy Toy August 26, 2013

      Actually RR sold less than TTT and UNA. Nice try though f**.

  6. KING RIH August 26, 2013

    Imagine if she had Actually pushed this era!!!!!! B**** will forever be shaded in my head for this era and the last!

  7. TINA JONES August 26, 2013

    • Lovebird (dark horse – prism – 10.22.23) August 26, 2013

      I’ve had ‘fading’ and ‘watch n’ learn’ on heavy rotation recently.

      I find watch n’ learn to be the perfect blend of ratchetness, yassss. I really appreciate Talk That Talk nowadays.

      • Suicide Blonde August 26, 2013

        ‘Talk That Talk’ is my favorite album of hers, i just love it, the Navy don’t appreciate this album as much as they should though, oh they will kill me!.

      • Lovebird (dark horse – prism – 10.22.23) August 26, 2013

        I agree, they don’t appreciate Talk That Talk like they should, but that’s most likely because they’re were still on a LOUD high when it came out.

        My fav albums of hers are Rated R, then Unapologetic, then LOUD but I appreciate Talk That Talk more nowadays the more I listen to it. It’s such a fun album.

      • Suicide Blonde August 26, 2013

        My two favs. are Rated R and Talk That Talk 🙂

  10. JER August 26, 2013

    It would be nice to see BeYAWNce mentioned JUST once on this blog. I mean can she ever get any shine?

    • SLAY_HIVE August 26, 2013

      Bxtch you just mentioned her as always! Dumb whxre!

  11. Lovebird (dark horse – prism – 10.22.23) August 26, 2013

    Why is Beyonce in the above pic when the b**** is hiding her single and album like it was caught in a fan with her nappy ass hood of dead-wrong weave? Samantha thirsty for hits again.

    Anyway this is a win for the Navi and not Rihanna because this era has been a mess. Yes the music and vocals have been solid but the overall promo has been sloppy, the Navi pretty much carried the whole era.

    I expect Rihanna to have a LOUD style era next RIHvember next year because as much as I love Unapologetic the album, the era has been a mess. Rihanna babe, you need to meet us half way, we can’t do all the heavy lifting.

  12. ratedxxx(next broad) August 26, 2013

    I see pink is still selling albums…after all these years, bish is still on top of her game….bad bish status….

    I remember when she was competing with the likes of britney spears, jessica simpson, xtina, mandy moore…

    while britney is selling on just on her name alone..bish doesnt even promote her s*** anymore….jessica is a fashion designer making million

    everybody else are non factors….pink is still selling out tours and albums.

  13. IKR August 26, 2013

    How exactly did she come out on top when on the singles front she first appears at #14 and on the albums she is at #16? When did 14 and 16 become the sum of number one? No hate I like riri,but Get lucky is #1 for singles and Our version of events is #1 for albums.TGJ is obsessed with Rihanna.

  14. molly August 26, 2013

    Congratulations rih Yet bleachyonce is no were to be found ooop

  15. KingBeyBitch August 26, 2013

    @lOVERBIRD IS a f****** stan he’s more excited than the HIVE about Bey’s single.

    • Lovebird (dark horse – prism – 10.22.23) August 26, 2013

      I’m excited to see it struggle worst than Dance 4 you.

      • Kingstown August 26, 2013

        Loving the shade.

  16. pat August 26, 2013

    that was sweet of Rih to give the flop a photo op

  17. Kingstown August 26, 2013

    But wtf does blowjobce have to do with this post, Where is she on the charts???

  18. ratedxxx(next broad) August 26, 2013

    and rihanna…the bish is so bad, that she got b****** who has been in the game for a decade, shook…

    she got basic b****** trying to dress like her, copying her hairstyles, trying to be ratchet….

    I’m glad her album did great

  19. WINTZ August 26, 2013

    Why does Beyonce look so huge in that photo? Congrats Rih.

  20. Lovebird (dark horse – prism – 10.22.23) August 26, 2013

    P!no is very talented but she’s still winning because she didn’t suffer the media backlash Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera suffered. Her image is still intact from the time she started, plus she’s a hypocrite, she tries to play the high ands mighty card when she does the same s*** others do, it’s just that no one ever calls her out on it.

    I like p!nk but we have to call a spade a spade.

    • Lovebird (dark horse – prism – 10.22.23) August 26, 2013

      *P!nk

  21. Kylla w August 26, 2013

    Ppl kill me callin her a singles artist! We live in a singles era. She STILL goesplatinum every album! Back in the day u HAD to buy a whole cd, now, u can just buy what u like. And if songs that aren’t singles selling just as good songs that are, then, ummmm, technically, she winning! Imagine what her sales would be without itunes no free downloads and no leaks! Say what u want but the girl is the s*** and it seems as though sam n anyone who’s obsessed with beyonce that doesn’t think so.t

  22. KingBeyBitch August 26, 2013

    @MOLLY But Bey doesnt have any music out. YALL TRY SO HARD ITS REALLY A WASTE OF TIME

  23. KingBeyBitch August 26, 2013

    YET again the Navy so worried about BEYONCE on a post about their fave. I mean they are make Bey the MAIN TOPIC gosh that POWER THO

    • Slog August 26, 2013

      Relax f** no one but you and Sam are worried of beytierdce

      • KingBeyBitch August 26, 2013

        You obviously do C***

  24. cake like lady gaga August 26, 2013

    I can’t see T********* though.. The H** must be seething!!! 😀 😀 😀

    Paw Dat!!!

    • SLAY_HIVE August 26, 2013

      Where is GaGa though?? Bxtch u have some nerve when your fave is getting outsold by basic a** S***** PERRY?? MESS!

      Why would the HIVE seethe, when Beyonce hasn’t released any music in 2 years!

  25. . : : h 2 o : : . August 26, 2013

    14 Stay
    36 Diamonds
    16 Unapologetic
    ______________________________

    OK, I like Rihanna and “Unapologetic”, but how is that in any way “coming out on top”?

    Anyway that’s very good .. Congrats to her and her fanbase!

    • Lovebird (dark horse – prism – 10.22.23) August 26, 2013

      The whole era has been a mess, the Navi carried it all the way. If she kept on promoting, she would be at 5 million by now considering how well it was selling.

      • . : : h 2 o : : . August 26, 2013

        Yes, she had many hits on “Unapologetic” but after “Stay” became a hit, she turned into an Instagram sensation and just disappeared …

        Mess!

    • Slog August 26, 2013

      Your avi ….s*** af!

  26. KingBeyBitch August 26, 2013

    @lOVERBIRD But isnt she on tour that right there is PROMOTION. ISNT IT? NO SHADE JUST SAYING

  27. Suicide Blonde August 26, 2013

    Of all the major VMA performances, Entertainment Weekly graded #LadyGaGa’s the lowest!

    Plays: Fading by Rihanna.

    Things just ain’t the same
    And I’m ready for change
    Go on, be gone, ta, ta, so long

    Can’t you see that you’re fading
    Fading, fading, fading away, away, away, away
    I opened up my eyes and I finally realized
    Today, today, it’s too late, you’re fading away

    • POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) August 26, 2013

      Leave Rihanna out of this BS, Do not put her with basic B****** who are fading after just 5 years.

      in just 8 years , robyn went from a poor island girl who was selling clothes on the back of her daddy’s car to the biggest selling digital artist in history with 12 #1’s , not some daddy’s girl who was born in NY always “victimizing” herself.

    • Fierce & All August 26, 2013

      Well they are quite dumb cuz there was no performance more embarassing or rachet than Miley’s! BYE.

  28. Kay August 26, 2013

    I need loud era part 2 pronto!!

  29. Rosie August 26, 2013

    Love all of these! Congrats to them. Also to Rihanna but that’s already been said enough in here.

    • Suicide Blonde August 26, 2013

      Hey, hey…I f**** with Born to Die and Paradise everyday sooooo.

    • Beyonce f**** Rita Whora with a d****; this is a blind item. August 26, 2013

      White noise is mazing. USA is missing out. That breakdown at the end makes me so…..

      • Rosie August 26, 2013

        North America truly is missing out. That entire album is amazing, god. Hopefully it gets a sales boost when it slays the year-end lists this year.
        I see MTV stanning for Latch sometimes though.

  30. SLAY_HIVE August 26, 2013

    Ri hjects album sales are always BASIC af! Two monster hit singles and she cant hit the TOP of the list?? She was on tour, non singles such as LS and PIU were in constant rotation, she got back with chris, dumped him, constantly exposing her flat ass and saggy tits on instagram AND you mean to tell me she cant top the album list???

    Beyonce managed to sell 3 million ww with 4, NO major hit singles or #1’s and managed to sell just a little less than TTT AND UNA?? The bxtch is a singles artist, no matter how you bxtches try to slice it! Kiii

    • Beyonce f**** Rita Whora with a d****; this is a blind item. August 26, 2013

      BEYONCE LP sold 2.1 with all that promo. Rih has not had an album that sell that in 5 years.

      • The Boy Toy August 26, 2013

        And she had more promo. Oprah, Billboard awards, “pregnancy” , one billion videos….chile please…..

    • The Boy Toy August 26, 2013

      B**** please, Flo-Rida is a singles artist. Rihanna releases an album every year, wtf do you expect p***? Selling no less than 3 million ww YEARLY isn’t something everyone can do. Now go tend to your over stretched hole, ugly bottom.

    • Fierce & All August 26, 2013

      Why you keep trying to prove a point to these Rihanna stans? They are never gonna listen. All the beyhive needs to do is let her music and talent speak for itself….she slayed the Super Bowl. We all know America is anxiously wanting more. Even the haters.

  31. caribbean native August 26, 2013

    ha rihanna got in a photo with beyonce and made beyonce look 10 years older lol i cant

  32. SLAY_HIVE August 26, 2013

    I wonder how many albums Rihject would sell without those #1’s?? Kiiiii

  33. channel_ROMAN August 26, 2013

    Her forehead tho.and TTT was on HEAVY ROTATION when it dropped. That album put me into the mood for sum good d*ck. I didn’t get any till 2013 tho.

  34. POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) August 26, 2013

    Congrats, but I don’t care about this one chart and I’m a f*****’ Navy.

    yes you all better stan, you are looking at the future.

    So Proud of her, she is #1 in the game right now, all eyes on her. 😀

    but I don’t know why beyonce is the main pic when she is beneath Rihanna ? sam and his tireless efforts to create stan wars… 🙄

    Not today, Not ever from me.

    congrats to others too minus TS and 1D.

  35. TeamBreezy August 26, 2013

    Why is Beyonce in this picture looking like Ri’s mama? Congrats to Rihanna I guess , but why tgj bein so shady towards Beyonce tho

  36. peggyhyls5 on Instagram BEYONCE HAS SOLD 118 million records as a solo artist and 60 million with DC WHICH MAKES IT 178 million records sold world wide wow Beyonce is a legend August 26, 2013

    Eeeerk BEY makes Rih look ugly af in this pic big forehead!?! Anyway unapologetic #16 looool stay #14 diamond top 30 loool

    • ETONE August 26, 2013

      Rihanna any style, look, cut or color she is beautiful

      Beyonce short hair brings out her insecurity.

  37. HOWYOULIKEIT August 26, 2013

    I thought she would be number one. Try again next time

  38. JOHNVIDAL August 27, 2013

    TGJ and their absurd articles!!! Damn that other blog is so much better when it comes to give proper info. Why is Rihanna in the title of this article? She´s not on top of UK´s best selling albums and singles of 2013 so far. Point blank period. Her numbers are often average for a pop star of her “caliber” who has been pushed down our throats for 5 consecutive years until they finally made her a proper pop star (at least when it comes to some type of charts).

  39. MUSIC August 27, 2013

    What? She’s not even in the top 10. Anyways, congrats to Daft Punk

  40. bibi93 August 27, 2013

    pink!!

  41. LDR August 30, 2013

    Born To Die was released in 2012. Big ups to Lana.

  42. jacques mukaz May 22, 2015
