    Lana will never

    • barb 4 lyfe October 10, 2013

      I agree.

    • Ciara my everything October 10, 2013

      Never!!!!

      • Lana Del Slay October 10, 2013

        Ciara couldn’t sell 60k if Future’s dreadlocks depended on it.

    • Selenator93 October 13, 2013

      Britney Spears did this before.
      When will your favs?

  2. PhuckYoTour October 10, 2013

    When will Beyonce.

    • barb 4 lyfe October 10, 2013

      lol

    • Biting Truth October 10, 2013

      Rihanna never will.

    • . : : h 2 o : : . October 10, 2013

      She’s on a $200M+ tour right now, I’m sure she couldn’t wipe her ass with US single certifications.

  3. barb 4 lyfe October 10, 2013

    Congratulations but Keyshia Cole Jasmin Sullivan or any other black soul singer coulda sung this same song and it wouldn’t have gone gold.

    • #IndustryPussy October 10, 2013

      Maybe Jazmine, but Keyshia: NOPE…

    • Common Sense October 10, 2013

      B**** please. Always trying to make it look like the reason your faves flop is because of their color. Your faves flop because there’s nothing special about them.

  4. BeyWhouWanna October 10, 2013

    Good for Queen Adele. But excuse me, I have a question. Why is WN flopping in the UK.

    • barb 4 lyfe October 10, 2013

      Beyonce fans should be the last ones concerned about flopping singles.

      • SLAY_HIVE October 10, 2013

        LOOOIL AND HOW MANY HITS HAS NICKI HAD AFTER 6,000 FT THIS YEAR? STFU

  5. Ciara my everything October 10, 2013

    Rosie is seething.

  6. JanetXone October 10, 2013

    Black people can sell this much, it’s just a matter of their labels wanting them to and helping them get there.

    • TRUTH SERUM October 10, 2013

      THE LIES. BLACKS CAN’T SELL THAT MUCH.

      LET’S BE REAL.

      IF THAT WAS THE CASE, SINGLE LADIES AND WE FOUND LOVE SHOULD BE 8X’s PLATINUM SINGLES ALSO AND THEIR ALBUMS SHOULD BE 10XS PLATINUM….

      ITS ALL ABOUT DEMAND.

      AND BLACK PEOPLE ARE DAMN SURE NOT HIGH IN DEMAND.

      • Common Sense October 10, 2013

        Those songs are basic as f***. Why the hell would such garbage sell 8x platinum? Accept that your faves make shitty music and don’t sell. Their skin color has nothing to do with it. Thriller is the best selling album ever and it was made by a black artist. Quality speaks for itself.

  7. Rita is coming for wigs October 10, 2013

    Adele> Lorde> Lama

    • Draggin4MrsCarter October 10, 2013

      So accurate.

  8. TurntUp4Cici October 10, 2013

    Overated.

  9. Miguel stan October 10, 2013

    when will rihanna?

    • UMo October 10, 2013

      Never. Rihanna will NEVER have an album that sells over 25 million alone. LOL comedy.

  10. RICHIE_RICH October 10, 2013

      • BitchyBeyBey October 10, 2013

        Something we can agree on.

      • Yes my dear October 10, 2013

        That’s my fave…Can’t wait to hear that song from The Best Man Holiday Soundtrack and the New Album in Fall 2014.

  12. Rita is coming for wigs October 10, 2013

    Adele didn’t have to sellout to Edm to get a hit like Lana.

  13. Brandy > your fave October 10, 2013

    When will Ciara?

  14. Janelle Stans October 10, 2013

    Rihanna wishes

  15. #HIVE October 10, 2013

    Brandy fans shouldn’t come for ciara last time i checked ciara was nominated for an American music award not brandy.

    • Common Sense October 10, 2013

      LMAO at gloating over an AMA NOMINATION not even a win. How tragic.

  16. BREEZYBABY October 10, 2013

    I don’t like this Amy Winehouse copycat

  19. KissesForKelly October 10, 2013

    Lana is critically acclaimed unlike most of the girls on here.

    • #HIVE October 10, 2013

      Has Kelly ever been critically acclaimed?

      • IM A FREE B*TCH October 10, 2013

        im pretty sure TAGG was critically acclaimed

    • TRUTH SERUM October 10, 2013

      UMM LANA CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED???

      THE GRAMMYS, HER METACRITIC NUMBER AND HER ROLLING STONE REVIEW DISAGREE…

      SHE GOT 2 OUT OF 5 STARS FOR BORN TO DIE FROM ROLLING STONE…

      WHERE IS THIS ACCLAIM???

      • Common Sense October 10, 2013

        Rolling Stone is a relevant music source now? This is the same magazine that ranked Xtincta higher than Mariah in their best singers list. It cannot be taken seriously.

      • Touché October 10, 2013

        It’s also the same list that put Bob Dylan in the top ten, so you know Rolling Stone is a complete joke.

  20. TALK A GOOD GAME October 10, 2013

    Congratulate her and move on damn. Ciara is trash though….

    • #HIVE October 10, 2013

      Ciara> Kelly nowhereland

      • Common Sense October 10, 2013

        Kelly Rowland 66k > C-Error 57k
        #oops

  21. Tootie October 10, 2013

    All y’all saying when will _________? The question is when will your f****** fave? Adele annihilated each and everyone one of our faves from 2011-present. Have several, all of you!

    • Touché October 10, 2013

      Exactly

  22. Demolish my Hole October 10, 2013

  25. POP ROYALTY October 10, 2013

    She’s a Goddess Tbh.

    Love her, So deserving of her success and More, all Gimmicks-free.

    U go Adele, Stay blessed with your little family and your Oscar. 🙂

    • iconic cici October 10, 2013

      RihAids,Beyhoe,Hagdonna will never win oscars

      • . : : h 2 o : : . October 10, 2013

        Beyhoe has 1.1 billion in Box Office and DVD gross with a total budget less than $390 million. The only way she has anything to do with cinema is “Skyfall”, an original song she recorded for a movie she never appeared, which happened to win an Oscar.

        So I’m sure “Beyhoe” got nothing to worry about at this point.

        Now go back to dusting off C-Error’s CDs on the racks of McDonald 🙂

    • TRUTH SERUM October 10, 2013

      SHE CATERED TO AN AUDIENCE…

      SHE TOOK THE ADULT CONTEMPORARY AND COUNTRY ROUTE, WHICH HELPED HER SELL THOSE MILLIONS OF RECORDS…

      LOOK AT 19’S AND IT BEING MOTOWN INFLUENCED…

      IT BARELY SOLD 1/4 OR WHAT 21 DID…
