Rihanna Confirms Shakira Duet ‘Can’t Remember To Forget’ / Set To Debut Next Week?

Published: Monday 6th Jan 2014 by Sam

The speculation is over!

After weeks of teasing and titillation, Rihanna has – so it seems – confirmed her presence on Shakira‘s hotly anticipated new single.

Details after the jump…

Moments ago, the Bajan model cryptically retweeted the following message on Twitter:


Little else is known about the interestingly titled track ‘Can’t Remember To Forget’. What is certain, though, is that its roll-out will likely give the Roc Nation divas a mammoth push for their respective solo efforts. Should the cut truly debut next Tuesday (which is oft the most elected day for new US releases), it’ll arrive a few weeks before Shakira’s return to The Voice begins airing in February. What’s more, with Beyonce set to hit the tour trail again next month, Ms. Fenty is no doubt thinking…”coast clear”. On the Singles charts, of course.

Your thoughts?

    “ADORE U”>>>

  2. BEYHIVE_MINAJ January 6, 2014

    Can’t wait! Now all I need is a Rihanna and Beyonce collab to end this petty stan war

  3. ~the arcade~ January 6, 2014

    ”coast clear”. On the Singles charts, of course.’
    I’m done 😀

  4. ~the arcade~ January 6, 2014

    Duets, is the only time I can somewhat look forward to hearing rihanna’s voice.

  5. Arie January 6, 2014

    Sounds like a tittle of a book.

  6. Miley slaaaayyysss January 6, 2014

    Shakira is. FLOP and Rihanna is REPLACED by Miley SLAYrus

  7. BEYHIVE_MINAJ January 6, 2014

    Miley didn’t replace anything. She’s already forgotten. Have a seat

  8. Jessie January 6, 2014

    They are both using each other for their own advantage, Rihanna, because she is on a ‘break’ but has to bandwagon other peoples tracks to keep her name out there, and Shakira, because she wants to actually chart.

  9. Miley slaaaayyysss January 6, 2014

    Nicki is FORGOT is her album platinum yet f**

  10. Miley slaaaayyysss January 6, 2014


  11. BEYHIVE_MINAJ January 6, 2014

    Forgotten,yet the whole world is still talking about the Boss Ass B**** freestyle and her Moscato is the number 1 moscato in the US. Not to mention,Pink Friday outsold Bangerz. All those shock antics and publicity stunts and she still couldn’t crack 500k in the US

  12. shauwndapooh January 6, 2014

    I hope this is a latin-reggea song no a plain ole edm song

  13. Lolz! January 6, 2014

    Coast clear for Singles when beyonce will be pushing her Singles from her Album too? Lolololol you always eat your words at the end of the Day Sam! Beyonce has failed to remove rihanna Off the Top so in other words bey needs a Coast clear for her Singles

  14. Stephy Tha Lambily January 6, 2014

    14th number 1 hit tbh….

  15. Stephy Tha Lambily January 6, 2014

    Cant F****** Wait!!!!!!

  16. Miley slaaaayyysss January 6, 2014


  17. Miley slaaaayyysss January 6, 2014


  18. xo January 6, 2014

    and rihanal failed to find a release date for her next flop album so your point

  19. xo January 6, 2014

    poor thang is 8 years later, rihanal is still a hooks artist. good luck i guess

  20. Miley slaaaayyysss January 6, 2014

    Miley’s solo music slays she don’t need no hook to break records kii

  21. BEYHIVE_MINAJ January 6, 2014

    Not this h** trying to call me delusional when Pink Friday sold over 300k first week with no shock antics or over the top promotion. Nothing but the music,and good promo. I need an explanation as to why after saying “controversial” s*** on interviews,grinding and groping Robin Thicke’s genitilis with a foam finger,swinging her disgusting naked body on a wrecking ball,licking every single thing she sees with her gross af tongue,twerking a flat ass cheeks on a midget and all the publicity in the world,she still couldn’t even outsell Artpop. Feel free to fall back b****

  22. Miley slaaaayyysss January 6, 2014


  23. DOSSOME January 6, 2014

    Hope this does not get 200 comments because sam ”accidentaly” dropped beyonce’s name in the article..How do you guys feel repeating yourselves over and over for all these years?

  24. Duane January 6, 2014

    “Coast Clear” LOL please only way Beywolf will ever make a top 10 hit is if you remove all 90 acts from the Hot100

    But nevertheless I cant wait to hear what a Rihanna/Shakira colab would sound like!!!

  25. BEYHIVE_MINAJ January 6, 2014

    B**** please. Nobody takes Miley seriously. I’m waiting for an explanation as to why even after all the publicity stunts in the world,the Grammys were not going to entertain her trash

  26. BeyWhoUWanna January 6, 2014

    Yes dear, sing that hook because that’s what you’re best at.

  27. Jesus stan January 6, 2014

    When will Ciara?

  28. xo January 6, 2014

    she shell still outsell flopannas albums

  29. Princess pretty January 6, 2014

    Beyonce is a slutty flop

  30. BEYHIVE_MINAJ January 6, 2014

    But she outsold every female artist’s first week in one day. Sit down @princess pretty

  31. Lovebird January 6, 2014

    I can’t wait to hear it. We need something to knock that Timber song off of the top of iTunes.

    Is this her 14th #1? Most likely.

  32. NT January 6, 2014

    14th no.1

  33. TurntUp4Cici January 6, 2014

    Is that goat still trying?

  34. Lovebird January 6, 2014

    Wait a minute, Bangerz has only sold 600K? Hasn’t it been out for like forever? Lol.

    And Nicki needed shock antics *side eyes stupid ho*

  35. Lovebird January 6, 2014

    Nicki doesn’t even have a Grammy, the arguments between Nicki and Miley fans are about as credible as Al Sheik ABitch.

  36. BeyBeyKing January 6, 2014

    Not her using her so many people to get number ones. Beyonce has her own.

  37. Lovebird January 6, 2014

    Beyonce has been trying to have a #1 for 6 years now.

  38. Bey Fan January 6, 2014

    This should be interesting. I hope its not an EDM type of record. ughhh so tired of em

    Ohhh and i know the video will be hot. I dont live Rihanna’s visuals (WHYB being the exception) , but with her and Shakira i have a feeling it will epic.

  39. BEYHIVE_MINAJ January 6, 2014

    Oh please bitchbird. The only shock antics she had was her outrageous clothing. Stupid bird

  40. BEYHIVE_MINAJ January 6, 2014

    Rihanna tried 7 years to get a number 1 album tho

  41. Lovebird January 6, 2014

    And stupid ho, yes that happened.

  42. Unbiased January 6, 2014

    Can’t wait! Let’s not throw shade at Beyonce when she outsold your fav U.S sales in a matter of 3 weeks. Which is shame considering it had two #1 hits, massive airplay, sold out tour, live performances etc. Please keep it cute.

  43. Lovebird January 6, 2014

    And she managed to get one. #1 single and album in the same week.

  44. BEYHIVE_MINAJ January 6, 2014

    But it took how long to go platinum?

  45. Lovebird January 6, 2014

    About as long as it took 4 to go platinum.

    Is The Roman Floploaded platinum sis? Stupid ho didn’t work out?

  46. The Boy Toy January 6, 2014

    Not a Shakira fan, but I can’t wait to hear this s*** 🙂

  47. The Boy Toy January 6, 2014

    They better give me a Latin-Caribbean “The Boy Is Mine” type slayage 😀

  48. Bey Fan January 6, 2014

    They better give me a Latin-Caribbean “The Boy Is Mine” type slayage

    This was funny lmao

  49. Mark111 January 6, 2014

    Oooh, Mariah, Rihanna is coming for that #1’s crown! And Beyonce isn’t stopping anyone when she can’t even crack the top 10. “But Monster isn’t her song and she need to do features to remain known”, umm, Rihanna had #1 hit before Love The Way You Lie and after. It’s Eminem who hasn’t had a #1 since Love The Way You Lie, so he’s the one needed Rihanna, cause berserk flopped and Rap God isn’t charting.

  50. Vee January 6, 2014

    Beyoncé isn’t even trying to get a #1 this era stop with that stale ass shade.

  51. Rihanna takes over 2014 January 6, 2014

    Coast is clear from who?? Drunk in Love has flopped. NOTHING ON BEYONCE SCREAMS HIT. THE MONSTER is #1 on the BB hot 100. AND DONT forget how Diamonds slayed bey into delaying her album.Sam you tried.

  52. Unbiased January 6, 2014

    In you would think that would have taken her to 2x platinum atleast, but I digress. Hopefully there is some dancing.

  53. Vee January 6, 2014

    Ok! Rihanna better cling to those hooks to get her #1s up that’s what she relies on to sell herself. Bey’s name is strong enough alone to sell.

  54. Vee January 6, 2014

    Anyway I hope this song is not generic like The Monster. I want to hear their cultures shine through it should be interesting.

  55. Lovebird January 6, 2014


    Exactly, Rap God and Bezerk did not hit #1, The monster hit #1 because of the icon.

    Just like Love the way you lie hit #1 because of the icon.

  56. JOHNVIDAL January 6, 2014

    It´s hilarious how her label won´t allow her or us to take a break, single after single even without an album out. It´s obviously not about the music or a serious project when it comes to Rihanna. They are rushing it before radio stops liking young Rihanna and she stops being a good singles artist. They know there´s nothing after that.
    PS: on a serious note, did anyone here really like The Monster? just an example. I couldn´t listent to it more than twice. Once when it debuted and a second time a couple of weeks ago. It´s really bland. It´s all about her being “cool” in the young public´s eyes atm or something.

  57. Realest January 6, 2014

    Two yodellers, yodelling away.. Next!!

  58. Lovebird January 6, 2014

    Yodeling to #1

  59. Bey Fan January 6, 2014


    I hate the Monster song… but not because of Rihanna. Im not a fan of Em. And it sounds dated to me. What Now is a better song than Monster. I dont know what happen to that single.

  60. JOHNVIDAL January 6, 2014

    Look, I can´t stand Eminem, but he don´t get #1 singles cos rap songs don´t get #1 positions. If his collabos with Rihanna get that #1 it´s not just cos of Rihanna, he would get them with other female models too. His only other collabo was with Dido a century ago and that was a big hit everywhere. Eminem´s name is as important or way more than Rihanna´s when it comes to making that mediocre song #1.
    Stans are hilarious!

  61. ~the arcade~ January 6, 2014

    I reckon it’s gonna be a dark- ballad of some sort… given that we all know, one of them is known for being incapable of dancing. #I’mjustsayin

  62. suga&spice January 6, 2014

    Can’t wait love Shakira!!! caught the undercover shade too.

  63. Lovebird January 6, 2014

    Sounds like an excuse to me.

    It hit #1 because Rihanna is on it.

  64. JOHNVIDAL January 6, 2014

    @bey fan
    Same here. I don´t care about neither of them. But this song just didn´t deserve that #1 and that´s it. Their previous one ok, but this one? lol
    What happened to What Now is that people like to play Rihanna when it comes to partying or when it comes to a serious single like Diamonds cos it´s a nice change, but it ends there. They quickly need something new. She only has two successful singles every era (to be honest, half of her singles flop, but she releases so many every year that of course she gets hits every year anyway), they know her albums don´t last longer so they quickly prepare her the next one. This two new collabs with Eminem and now Shakira are really a proof of how her team decided to market Rihanna a long time ago.

  65. Mark111 January 6, 2014

    @JOHNVIDAL needWhy are you on a Rihanna post? You need to find Lady Gaga, cause I don’t see her in the top 20 single chart and she’s falling off the album chart at #18 after just 7 weeks. Miley and Katy albums are still in the top 10 and all of Katy singles are in the top 20. So go and search for your faded fave. At least the HIVE and NAVI fave’s are both sitting on top of the singles and album chart.

  66. Yolo January 6, 2014

    @johnvidal i actually agree with your first comment 100%.

  67. Lovebird January 6, 2014

    What now was overshadowed by The Monster.

    What now did fairly well in Canada and UK.

  68. Mark111 January 6, 2014

    @LoveBird Rihanna saved that album and Em knows it. I recall him hating pop stars, but can’t get a hit with the biggest. With the HIVE talking smack, Beyonce may need Rihanna to get a top 10, cause her last one was when Bey was FEAT with a now faded pop star in 2010.

  69. Lovebird January 6, 2014

    Rihanna and her teams strategy is clearly working. I mean she’s an icon who has inspired an entire generation including favs.

    Remember Almost home sounds like Diamonds because of Rihanna.

  70. ~the arcade~ January 6, 2014

    You absolutely hit the nail on its head, with that breakdown… I also despise that monster single. PITIFUL

    But John its going on how many years, and Madonna,Mariah, and Beyonce are still working, Break from what.

  73. Lovebird January 6, 2014

    Funny how Rihanna needs these rappers to “get a hit”.

    Drake’s last major international hit was with Rihanna.

    T.Is only international hit is with Rihanna

    Wale’s RIHANNA version of bad peaked at #19 because of Rihanna

    Love song wasn’t even supposed to be a hit but Rihanna made it a hit by doing absolutely nothing.

    Same with Talk That Talk, Birthday Cake, Break it off…etc.

  74. Emmie January 6, 2014

    miley slays ..so sad ..the fact that i am even taking time to respond to you smh! listen i love miley but she needed all the tools she could use all the tricks to finally make her name heardd…i love bangerz and infact its for me the best album of 2013 ….and this is a lot coming from me a huge BEYONCE fan and always been and will! But i dont see the need like you do ( i am guessing you are 12 or 13 years old ) to bring other artist down to uplift miley ? this aint working right ? You think you a fan you helping miley ? NO honey all you do is get more to hate miley cause of stupid comments made by stupid teenagers mostlikely with 0 friends and overweight and a f**.. ( i am gay and proud of it ) but you is a nasty f** . IF mileys work is so good…let it speak for its self..like i did and got hooked on it … & how dare you to call shakira a flop ? rihanna a flop ? how dare you miley had to drop 3 or 4 albums before the mainstream noticed her…Shakira is a word wide star…unlike beyonce rihanna or mariah …Shakira has a bigger audience…spanish arabic european american asian..if one artist is really world wide known..its Shakira…so respect the truth dont come talkin s*** here… cause all you do i make miley look like a fool for having loser fans like you ! Also not cool from behind a computer having such a big mouth..its lame weaksauce!

  75. MuiMui January 6, 2014

    Why not you take a break ,from her Articles and you can do that starting today, that is easy to do. And Beyonce is Doubling downing on Everything like Shes Desperate.

  76. MuiMui January 6, 2014

    True Queens Tops the charts in both singles,albums and chart success.

  77. Bey Fan January 6, 2014

    o_O Bangerz better than Beyonce??? Oh wow…

  78. JOHNVIDAL January 6, 2014

    Same excuses as always when someone tells the obvious truth: so to downplay my comments you need to mention Gaga? (who by the way has sold more albums than Milye Cyrus even this year, yeah you read right! Milye is the true flop of the year, Beyonce and Justin the winners of the year (commercially) Deal with the fatcs, and I don´t really care about any of these people). This was not about her. It´s about Rihanna, her team and her singles.
    Bangers the best album of the year? lol ok
    I´m reading too much nonsense.

    Sorry for visiting one out of 20 Rihanna posts. Really sorry.

    A f****** break between eras hun… I don´t know, to show she works on her albums for more than two weeks or something.

  79. The Boy Toy January 6, 2014

    Johnvidal shut the f*** up and quit writing essays in my faves post. Go listen to Celine’s old ass and stop worrying about Rih’s slayage.

  80. The Boy Toy January 6, 2014

    All of Johnvidals posts mention “Milye,” Katy and Rih. I think he’s still upset because ArtPoop was the biggest FLOP of 2013. I thought Gaga was an album seller?

  81. Realest January 6, 2014

    Rihanna could NEVER vocally hold her own on a duet with Beyonce (or with anyone considered a vocalist, actually) SOOOOOOOOO she got her look-a-like (Shakira) so she can easily yodel her way through 4 minutes with of utter trash with the other known NOcalist yodeler, Shakira #YodelFest2014 #NoVocalsHere #PoorThing #WheresYourVocalsBoo #YodelMuch

  82. The Boy Toy January 6, 2014

    That Miley stan is hilarious. Rihanna BIRTHED Miley boo. Pay homage.

  83. BEYHIVE_MINAJ January 6, 2014

    Actually,John Vidal is right. Eminem has more power in his name than Rihanna does. That’s why his collab with Dido which wasn’t a hit on the charts is actually considered a bigger hit than LTWYL.

  84. Molly January 6, 2014

    Looking foward to hearing it.

  85. Duane January 6, 2014

    Beywolf was featured on The Dream , Kelly Flopland and Jay Z albums yet none of those song made the top 100.. But when Rihanna is featured and it becomes a big hit b****** got something to say…

  86. Lovebird January 6, 2014

    Why are people mad at Johnvidal?

    He has an opinion, he’ll express it. Freedom of speech.

  87. BEYHIVE_MINAJ January 6, 2014

    ^they weren’t released as singles you moron

  88. BEYHIVE_MINAJ January 6, 2014


  89. The Boy Toy January 6, 2014

    Idc about what Johnvidals redundant ass says. Rihanna, Miley and Katy’s names are always on his fingertips therefore he is pressed.

  90. Jay Scorpio Navy General January 6, 2014

    @REALEST lets nope start with that vocal s*** iight cause Beyonce the biggest sceamer in the game after Alicia Keys… Lets not get it twisted B is a performer not a Singer

    Rihanna would show her ass up any day of the year so keep it cute now… When B learn to sing in her true voice and stop all the falsetto come back to us!!!

  91. MuiMui January 6, 2014

    Rihanna might not can hold her Vocals with Beyonce,But it is clear she is holding the Charts Hostage,in a good way.The Charts love her name,and they keep Writing about Her Chart Success,I wonder why!

  92. *ℙᏫℙ ℝᏫᎩAℒᎿᎩ* January 6, 2014

    “Private Show With The music Blasting….”


    Oh Ronyn I see you, you wasn’t kidding about a 2014 take over.


    Love me some shaki too.




  93. xo January 6, 2014

    @duane and yet, beyonce outsells rihannas albums

  94. ABC(the ORIGINAL) January 6, 2014

    Yesssss this will slay internationally! I need #R8 this spring or early summer!!!!

  95. MuiMui January 6, 2014

    Keep them,looking for u girl.Clearly
    getting number ones are keeping a major
    part of your success front and

  96. mildred >beyhive January 6, 2014

    I love how beyonce used shakira when they were at the peak of their career. Now shakira is just not it. [Check shakira last sales]. Any way will love to see what they can bring to the table. But it cab never beat the beyonce and shakira dance moves of beautiful lier. #fact

  97. the truff honey January 6, 2014

    dear GAAAAWD you stooopid ass ppl!!! RHI IS A FEATURE!!!! IT’S NOT HER RECORDS SHE NUMBER ONEING WITH!! SHE RIDING ON THE BACK OF OTHERS!! AND I LOVE RHI but the the is the TRUTH and i’m all about the TRUFF honey

  98. SLAY_HIVE January 6, 2014


    An unlikely pair!

    Will this be a dance track? (If so, Shakira will SLAY her in the video)

    Will this be a ballad? ( Boring, but i doubt it, both are desperate to chart) 😀


  99. ABC(the ORIGINAL) January 6, 2014

    @Truff have a seat f**. Billboard counts it, so your logic is null and void f**!

  100. SLAY_HIVE January 6, 2014

    “@REALEST lets nope start with that vocal s*** iight cause Beyonce the biggest sceamer in the game after Alicia Keys… Lets not get it twisted B is a performer not a Singer
    Rihanna would show her ass up any day of the year so keep it cute now… When B learn to sing in her true voice and stop all the falsetto come back to us!!!”

    Death @ this entire LIE!! Beyonce is a performer AND singer. Check her grammys! Check her ICONIC performances!

    Performing, consists of SINGING and stage presence! Neither of which, Rihject can offer!

    What is Rihanna’s true voice without studio engineers, and auto-tune, because she sounds a MESS live! B**** BYE!

  101. ABC(the ORIGINAL) January 6, 2014

    Seethe Slay hive! You ugly f*****. 🙂

  102. Truth January 6, 2014

    Tini- POP music goes to #1 these days because most adults don’t watch YouTube videos All day and don’t buy a 1.25 dollar single when the album is about 10. If an artist wants a number 1 they just follow the current format. Which means some artist give up music quality to have a hit. If you where an author would you rather sale some chapters for a 1.25 or the whole thing for 10. And key question where is that Jepson gurl & half of the people that had # 1 singles last year now I can only remember rih and Katy and Robyn.

  103. SLAY_HIVE January 6, 2014

    17 days NO promo >> 1,300,000

    52+ weeks Promo AND Generic #1 >> 1,400,000

    No reason to seethe at all bxtch 😉

  104. SLAY_HIVE January 6, 2014

    “If an artist wants a number 1 they just follow the current format. Which means some artist give up music quality to have a hit.”

    Exactly! The reason Beyonce ditched “trends” and released “4”

    I’m waiting on Rihanna to release a “4” without following mainstream/commercial trends, in desperation for hits

  105. Truth January 6, 2014

    Why is a Ciara Stan always throwing out numbers. Ciara wish she was in the category with Rihanna and Beyoncé. Ciara don’t care bout her career so why should the GP. She’s a waste of talent and a record deal.

  106. ABC(the ORIGINAL) January 6, 2014

    Pressed_hive why are you worried? Rihanna will continue to rack up hits. She will have 20 #1s by the time she’s 30 and your f** ass will be RED in the face. 🙂

  107. xo January 6, 2014

    i think @poop tried to throw shade but couldnt make any sense. so your blasting beyonce music while she outsells rihanna?

  108. SLAY_HIVE January 6, 2014

    Bxtch why are you so worried about what i have to say?

    I’m sure she will have 20 #1’s. she releases enough albums to have 50! Still doesn’t change that they are GENERIC and forgettable! kiii

    Hop off my dxck, d***!

  109. ririfan January 6, 2014

    enough already!!
    lets just enjoy the music and that’s it..
    why do u always have 2 fight?

  110. ABC(the ORIGINAL) January 6, 2014

    I’m not on your d*** a*** patient! You obbbbviously are a fan. You don’t see Diggeratchet Bey in every Rihanna post 😉 “B**** U BEEN A FAN”

  111. SLAY_HIVE January 6, 2014

    Bxtch bye!!! Clicking on this post DID NOT require me to purchase a 1.29 GENERIC single, NOR did it force me to watch one of her TIRED performances! Far from a fan of this fake! kii

    I have an opinion. I will state it! and Bxtch you will deal! Have a great day h** 😉

  112. ABC(the ORIGINAL) January 6, 2014

    You do the same, slAIDSy_herp.

  113. JOHNVIDAL January 6, 2014

    Thanks to the sane Beyonce and Rihanna fans who defended my comments. There were nothing but truths in them.

    @the boy toy
    You still don´t get it. Artpop is not mentioned in this post. And yes it has underperformed, but if it is the flop of the year in your opinion, what the hell is Bangers??????????? LOL Artpop has already outsold Bangers with no #1 hits to support it. CAN´T YOU GET IT??? lol Milye is the flop of the year. The less successful album of the year among the pop girls despite being at her best commercially and with all the attention in the world on her. Gaga is at her worst and still outsold her. That´s f****** sad.

    Ehhh, this should be interesting. I don’t think their voices fit together but w.e. I’ll just wait. And lmao @xo “tried to throw shade but didn’t make any sense” but hive let’s not with the navy today.

  115. rihanna is BIGGER THN BEYONCE EVER WAS January 6, 2014

    Rih is the biggest pop star in the world. Her wearing telco pants caused it sell out. Her wearing new glance causesd a 50% surge in profits. Only a pop star has that impact. No one buys things cos of beyonce. I have heard the song, it iOS very uptempo. Sounds like EDM plase don’t stop the music


  116. The Boy Toy January 6, 2014

    Lol johnvidal shut the hell up! Vh1 voted it the biggest flop of 2013 so it isn’t MY opinion. You’re always bringing up Rih, Katy and Miley in unrelated posts so what’s the difference? You’re pressed like a damn panini.

  117. The Boy Toy January 6, 2014

    Where did you hear the song? I’m not here for EDM.

  118. JER January 6, 2014

    Hive stop!! Just STAWP. Rihanna has been releasing singles nonstop since 2009 so the whole Rihanna thinking the coast is clear just no. No. You tried it. Rihanna has slayed the past 5 years without a moment’s peace. We’ve seen a baker’s dozen of flop singles by all yal faves meanwhile Rihanna has been consistently smashing. What’s he real problem here? Beyonce is not interested in having hit singles, but it’s OBVIOUS that the H** still is. Too bad, she don’t curr. She gave you her best album so remain seated PLEASE, keep all hands, weaves, and iphones inside the car at all times, sit back and enjoy the rest of the Rihanna’s ride BYEEEEeeee

  119. *ℙᏫℙ ℝᏫᎩAℒᎿᎩ* January 6, 2014

    rihanna Released “rated r” and that was her *coughs* “4”.

    but she got a #1 at the end of the day.

    She followed no Trends in making it and most People didn’t get it, Till Of course She released “Rude Boy”.

    Also beyonce had a full year of Promo, the Superbowl, the inaguration, The Vogue Magazine cover, The GQ, The Miley cyrus hair do, cuba trip etc……

    All This = PROMO.

    are U f*****’ Kidding me?

    babies tried it with the promo point… beyonce never took a Break since 2007!

    and Why you talk about “Generic” while any song off beyonce can be made by someone else, say RIHANNA? beyonce’s music is so generic, but the difference is, people really don’t care or like it, that’s why “drunk on love” is flopping right now!

    her songs chart poorly and make her album sales forever questionable.

    beyonce’s fanbase got shrunk and only her blind stanbase support her, who are hyped enough to buy an album with no impact on the radios, TV, etc.., while rihanna is extending her fanbase, now every fanbase come together with the navy, eminem fans, shakira fans, etc…. just because you are too dumb to get it doesn’t mean it is wrong.

    Funny some beyonce stans are talking about someone desperate to chart, while their Special fav failed to chart properly and get hits since 6 years. 😆

  120. SLAY_HIVE January 6, 2014

    “Beyonce is not interested in having hit singles, but it’s OBVIOUS that the h** still is. Too bad, she don’t curr. She gave you her best album so remain seated PLEASE”

    How is it obvious when she releases albums every 2-3 years?

    How is it obvious when she released 4 in 2011, when EDM(LMFAO, Katy, rihanna, Gaga ETC), was RULING the charts? SMH

    How is it obvious when she released her album as a WHOLE, instead of releasing a single?

    What is obvious, is that if Rihanna didn’t have as many albums, she would not be as a far as she is!

    Even Katy is slaying her in the generic singles department with LESS albums!

    Rihanna’s is all about bulk, and overexposure. She can’t rest without being on a chart. album or not.

    She is at her peak! she will only recycle, and turn into a complete w****, for more attention

  121. *ℙᏫℙ ℝᏫᎩAℒᎿᎩ* January 6, 2014

    @The Boy Toy:

    The navy Leaked a LQ version of The song Earlier when the News Broke, I heard it but it was too LQ-ish.

    someone was with Them in the location when they were Shooting The Music video and Record it then posted it on tumblr, Eventually I heard it but it was Deleted hours after.

    It is gonna be A DANCE record AND it has Some cool Dub-step Elements to it, and in the Leak, Rih’s Vocals were Standing out, you know her Tone!!!! 😀

    Won’t be a Ballad.

  122. Jasmine January 6, 2014

    Y’all sound dumb saying Beyonce can’t get a number 1 single … this woman’s has FIVE #1 ALBUMS Rihanna Has ???? 1 out of SEVEN… let it marinate

    Anybody can pay 1.99 for a single but who’s willing to buy a WHOLE ALBUM ?

  123. *ℙᏫℙ ℝᏫᎩAℒᎿᎩ* January 6, 2014

    it is gonna be released one Month after “BEYONCE”.


    now DOES that make sense to you @xo ?

  124. ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) January 6, 2014

    Not here for it….

  125. My Forehead Tho January 6, 2014

    Im sure Beyonce does care about the hot 100 chart, but she doesnt revolve her whole career over it like Rihanna. Yet, there single stats are similar:

    Beyonce first 7 albums (DC included) (excluding her features) = 9 #1s

    Rihanna’s first 7 album (excluding her features) = 10 #1

    Any questions?

  126. *ℙᏫℙ ℝᏫᎩAℒᎿᎩ* January 6, 2014


    Why her fans don’t pay 1.29$ though?

    Broke? 😥

    and Please, let’s not talk her album sales, she’s not all that, basic, and the difference this time is her sales were inflated and she used the impulse purchase/front loaded sales TRICK so well and that ain’t new.. that’s all. gotta give her credit on how she can manipulates Her fans.
    Good Job Beyonce.

    you know what’s meant by impulse purchase, right? 😀

    AND #1 Hits matter in the music industry, ask mariah! 😉

  127. SLAY_HIVE January 6, 2014

    Rated R was NOTHING like 4! kii
    4 was R&B, nothing Generic about it, accept RTW( which i hate)!

    Rated R was NO masterpiece, and saying Rude boy was #1 is nothing to brag about, considering the the generic lyrics, and message of the song! The same Rihanna formula! *yawns*

    Beyonce DID NOT have a full year of promo. She DID NOT perform a song from her album. She didn’t perform her album at the superbowl. She never released a single or album release date! It was not your typical album promo. STOP kii

    So basically, rihanna hopping on all of these features, interviews, twitter beefs are her “promoting” her next album?

    Drunk in Love is URBAN! Debuted @ number 12. PIU peaked @ #19. That tells you the lack of support for urban music on the Hot 100. I dont expect DIL to be #1 anyways!

    Death @ beyonce’s fanbase shrinking when she is outselling UNAFLOP in three weeks.

    where is the logic in some of the things you type? kii

    You take personal “opinion” and try to make it fact

    “her songs chart poorly and make her album sales forever questionable”

    BIGGEST kii of the day! rihanna and all of her “hits” yet her album sales are lacking. That makes no sense at all

  128. Realest January 6, 2014

    Beyonce is just the better of the two “artists” (I only put quotes cause Riri is hardly such).. Ri is a cute socialite type girl but vocally she’s weak (lemme see her attempt the Star-Spangled Banner or ANY VOCALLY challenging song for that matter) and is only praised by the navy. Not once have you seen the twitter world explode by CELEBRITIES (Her peers) stating she’s the best or that she kilt ANYTHING. NOT ONCE have any vocal legends praised her for her music, or singing or anything. Her praise is from her fan base (naturally) and from the ppl in the industry who CANT SING to save their life (her producers and the lil teeny bopper singers). Nobody of actual musical merit has or will recognize her #Sorry

  129. SLAY_HIVE January 6, 2014

    Do you have a receipt of Beyonce inflating her sales, or are you just talking out of your ass as usual?

    Can’t accept that Beyonce doesn’t need a hit single to sale her!

  130. *ℙᏫℙ ℝᏫᎩAℒᎿᎩ* January 6, 2014

    @My Forehead tho:

    you Tried Son but you’re not slick enough, now go tell that to Billboard Because They say she has no 9#1’s, she doesn’t even half the number of hits young rih has.

    you still count DC #1’s as hers? how pressed? how sad? how pathetic? how hilarious? 😆

    a basic bey Fly trippin’ in a rihanna post, you’re not even smart enough. 😕

  131. SLAY_HIVE January 6, 2014

    If rihanna’s FEATURES can be counted as her #1’s

    All 9 of Beyonce’s should be accounted for as well. They were NOT features, it was HER as LEAD vocalist, that earned them.

  132. My Forehead Tho January 6, 2014

    Tried what? Posting facts?

    All my comment proved was Beyonce first 7 albums single stats were similar to Rihanna’s first 7 album single stats; Excluding the features, because they aren’t their songs.

    Did I hit a nerve or some s***?

  133. The Boy Toy January 6, 2014

    🙄 Slay_Hoe bae do you have anything better to do than stalk Queen Rih’s posts? Since you like to write essays, you can handle my senior thesis next semester. 😀

  135. rih keeps winning – catch up heuaxi January 6, 2014

    The backup dancer filmed from the set of the video, and I heard it. It will slay till summer. It is BIG JOINT. It sounds EDM, but there is an URBAN breadown IN THE BRIDGE. Rih’s vocal totally own the, taht is why the dancer recroded Rih’s vocals. I think it is like Please dont stop the music, it is not Cheesey david guetta EDM; I thnk Stargate produced it.

    LOL RIH with have 3 number 1 this year: Montster, The shakira joint and HER R8 lead off.

    Lol BEYONCE 17 FREE video gimmick ( according to branding to and marketing epxerts, it is a marketing move ) have failed to stop Rih. The buzz for beyonce is cooling. XO AND DRUNK IN LOVE aint doing s*** on american radio. I dont even hear Ryan seacrest playing songs. ALL he does is play Rihanna. BOOM! Beyonce will, like 4 do 3 million tops. END OF. SHE wont outsell UNA OR TTT OR R8

    LOL LOL WHERE IS RITA ORA? I though she was gonna end Rih’s career in 2012

  136. The Boy Toy January 6, 2014

    Music is art, right? Damien Hurst, teh world most famous and richest artist said she is an icon of her generation. Case Closed. If Andy Warhol ( teh same one jayz raps about in drunk in love ) was around, he would stan FOR ONLY RIH, even if GAGA tried to forced herself on him. BOOM!

  139. rih keeps winning – catch up heuaxi January 6, 2014

    The coast is clear is wack! This is not even Rih’s single, it is Shakira. Rih dropped an LP in 2011 and KILLED BEYONCE 4 era. SHE IS NOT SCARED OF THE LESSOR, why? COS, she is the worlds biggest pop star who has the impact to make millions try and dress like her and copy her sound.

  140. LTM January 6, 2014

    I’m definitely here for this! I really hope its not EDM though. I’ve been waiting for Rih to do a collaboration with a major female artist. I’m still waiting on the Katy+Rih collabo. I heard it was going to happen but they had a temporary fall out. Now that they’re friends again I hope its back on. It will be Rih’s 15th #1 and Katy’s 10th (Dark Horse will be her 9th 😉 )

  141. rih keeps winning – catch up heuaxi January 6, 2014

    Did drunk in love flop? Well, Ryan seacrest does not play any song from Beyonce, buyt DIL was the best song on the LP. OOOP good thing she gave away free 17 music videos, there would of been no other way to sell. But, what will she do on the next LP? If she is around that long.

  142. Rihonce January 6, 2014

    Never miss a moment to bring up Beyonce in a Rihanna post, right ?

    News Flash though: Rihanna is not threatened by Beyonce in any way. You sit behind your pentium 2 computers acting more bothered than anybody else, meanwhile, there’s 2 black females sitting on top of the charts, which is more of an achievement for black culture than anything else. Anyway, remain pressed while Rihanna stays cashing in those checks

  143. MuiMui January 6, 2014

    In 2007,she had the Biggest Single for the year,as a matter of fact She owned that year with
    “Umbrella”, and it more than Solidified, her Place in the
    Music Books.
    Just think when you look at the Global Archives there is a Calender for Her for Her being Number One SINGLE SELLER FOR THE YEAR.
    Just like there is one for OTHERS,With Albums and Singles sales.
    With her success for that songs, its not fair that the Award Givers swept that song,Sales,under the rug.
    Jayz know that was wrong,because He was even Featured on that Song!

    I have heard it too. It sounds stargate. It does have dubstep breakdown, which, to me, will propel the song. Rih slayed the vocals, hence why they clip had her vocals. She was the standout. She is the QUEEN OF POP

  145. My Forehead Tho January 6, 2014

    We know she is good at Hit Making, and causing other Musicians, to start Talking in “Tongues”and confessing that they are not so into Singles, and Saying Artist Rushes to drop Singles Dah,Dah, Dah.
    So if,and when she drops something that don’t make it to the top of the Charts ,there will be no need for all the Looking for Her Chart Positions,Right. And since we know that While she might not have but 10-Milli in the US,Why not shut that Lying Trap (Mouth) and look up what Others has done in the Us Along.
    Start With the ones who can do everything Better than Ri can,LMAO.

    Vocals,Style and Class Before Her Demons ,and all ,Look at what they did to Her, She was Underrated,and She was the “VOICE’ SO RI NEED TO NOT LET NOTHING BOTHER HER LIKE SHES DOING,JUST HOLD IT STRAIGHT, AND KEEP RIGHT ON TRUCKING.Because those who find Fault with Her will never support her any way. The only thing they are serving is “Lip Service” and Typing Beyonce Resume, and how Great Beyonce is on Ri Post.

  152. JOHNVIDAL January 6, 2014

    It´s hilarious that some Rihanna fans (and I said some) keep talking and talking about singles. Nothing else to talk about I see.
    I´m no Beyonce fan, I don´t agree with putting DC´s #1 under her name, same way with Michael Jackson and Jackson 5 and others, but let me tell you, those DC´s #1 are more of Beyonce´s than most of Rihanna´s #1´s to be honest. The feautures and the rest is too much. And also let me tell you, winning on singles charts is great and groundbreaking… if it´s accompanied by equaly impressive impact, respect or album sales (and that´s the difference between Rihanna and the true legends who have as many #1´s as her like Michael, Whitney, mariah, etc). If not, it becomes kind of a joke. That´s what I said in my first comments about the way the label decided to use Rihanna until her career is done.

    @the toy boy
    You still don´t get it. Artpop has sold more copies than Bangers in less time and despite being Gaga´s worst commercial moment and Milye´s best. Polls don´t mean s***. Remember that poll from Billboard where Gaga won in almost every category a month ago? I think you should be able to understand what happens around you without anybody´s help. Grow up. Milye is the flop of the year if anything.

    Beyonce song “4” was out the same time Rihanna had Music out and that did not distrub Ri in any way. As a matter of fact Look at the Year End CHARTS From when she dropped a few years ago and just Follow the Charts.

    Rihanna has always dropped during the Christmas Time

  155. The Boy Toy January 6, 2014

    @Johnvidal no sister, YOU don’t get it! I am not a Miley fan so I could care less about her sales! Take that up with Vh1 NOT me baby! Don’t shoot the messenger! You were still calling Katy and Miley BASIC but Katy is at 2m ww while Miley is at 1.3 and GAG is at 1.4!

  156. JOHNVIDAL January 6, 2014

    What the hell are you talking about??????? How you dare to compare Whitney and Rihanna????
    You shade yourself honey. You just said it, Whitney´s albums SLAYED the charts with memorable sales, Rihanna can´t do that and is currently being slayed by Beyonce, who is far from the biggest album seller ever or something.
    Plus Whitney had the respect, of course media was prepared to destroy her, the better and bigger you are the more they are waiting for you. But she had the critical respect from everybody on the planet. Rihanna hasn´t.

  157. JOHNVIDAL January 6, 2014

    @the boy toy
    Aren´t you a Rihanna fan obsessed with numbers???
    1,3 million copies with 2 hit singles, the biggest media attention of the year and a big promo campaign<<<<1,4 million copies with no hit singles and no attention from the media and big promo.
    It´s pretty basic, Milye is the biggest underperformer of the year. Gaga didn´t do well, but still did better than her despite being at her worst.
    VH1 poll doesn´t mean anything. Can´t you get it??? Are you trying to tell me TGJ polls mean something too? 🙂

  158. MuiMui January 6, 2014

    John Rihanna Fans can talk about her Singles,see Singles mean a lot to people if it was any Musician Other than Rihanna who’s Breaking Records,New Ground and doing the Two Step with the Charts,Why are you Begrudging and Upset about them Bragging some,all the others do it all the tome. You see in Sports we had Jordan,Shaq,Pippins, and now we have Kobe,Durant and Lebron and they are all BLESSED at different Levels.

  159. ROSEGOLD January 6, 2014

    Johnvidal, it wasn’t a poll. It was an article lol.

    This is an unlikely pairing, but I said the same about Beautiful Liar. Interesting. I’ll be tuned in on the 14th……

  160. MuiMui January 6, 2014

    Why do her singles cause so many Heartburn, and then you turn right around and say SHE CAN’T SELL NOTHING BUT SINGLES DUUUUH.
    She is selling Singles AND Albums,and I know that is to much,for many to take in, because its too much like right.

  161. Lovebird January 6, 2014

    Wait, hasn’t Rihanna smashed charts not just in the US but EVERYWHERE charts are tracked?


    Rihanna has made a bigger impact than Beyonce worldwide.

    SOS 6 weeks #1 Aussie
    Umbrella 10 weeks #1 UK
    We Found love 10 weeks #1 USA
    Stay 8 weeks #1 Canada
    Diamonds 10 weeks #1 Germany, 8 weeks #1 South Africa

    Tell me where Rihanna has not smashed?

    Trap music doesn’t sell at all in the UK, RIHANNA got Pour it up to chart.

    You must be delusional or a hater to think Rihanna has not made an impact.

  162. MuiMui January 6, 2014

    JOHN ,I USED WHITNEY as an Example, of the Unfairness that goes on,and u know that.some one who is Great, Like Whitney was, in life, who got Underrated,come up for air and read.

    I was not comparing Rihanna to Her, I am saying that Rihanna does well with what she has Blessed with, Because even though WHITNEY WAS THE VOICE,She Herself was not Treated FAIRLY,How do Beyonce have more GRAMMYS THEN WHITNEY, CELINE AND MARIAH ALL PUT TOGETHER, WHATS FAIR, ABOUT THAT!!

  163. Lovebird January 6, 2014

    RIHANNA has made no impact and yet she’s selling out iconic stadiums.

    Rihanna can’t sing and yet she got a standing ovation at the Grammy’s for stay which became one of the biggest ballad hits of her career.

    Rihanna can’t perform and yet she smashed the we found love at the Grammy’s and all her LOUD medley’s that era. Not forgetting $141 million dollar tour.

    Rihanna has made no impact and yet she has sold over 150 million records

    She can’t sell albums and yet GGGB was the best selling album WW that year

    Rihanna has forgettable music and yet there’s a Rihanna song on every radio station anywhere.

    Rihanna can be easily replaced and yet she has had how many replacements that haven’t cut it.

    Rihanna won’t last and yet next year woll mark 10 years in the industry.

    Rihanna has proven you wrong time and time again and she’ll do it again and again.

  164. MuiMui January 6, 2014

  166. Kyle January 6, 2014

    And Beyonce has had a #1 album in more of those countries you listed than Rihanna. Ironic
    since shes the one with more albums.
    Beyonce has topped the album charts in all of them except SA which I am not sure of.

  167. LTM January 6, 2014

    People are forever trying to discredit Rihanna’s success. You cant deny Rihanna’s impact. Just look at todays new/young pop stars. When it comes to album sales, Rih’s numbers would be more impressive if she took the time to carry out each era. Example one being the Good Girl Gone Bad era. Its no coincidence that her most successful era is her longest, the one she took the most time on. Another is the LOUD era, her second most successful era and her second longest lasting one. Rihanna’s albums could sell over 5 million each easily if she took the time. The fact that she can release an album every year and not burn out is incredible in its own right.

  168. ASBEENISH January 6, 2014

    It shipped 1,000,000 copies. Which the RIAA counts as Platinum. Bxtch kiiii

  169. The Boy Toy January 6, 2014

    This is honestly very true. A lot of those songs wouldn’t have been hits if it weren’t for her

  173. Rory January 6, 2014

    But honestly, having a number one album doesn’t mean anything….. Do u realize how many artists hand #1 albums and they flop? Lol. Chris Browm, Chrisette Michelle, ASAP Rocky all albums have hit number one and STILL have yet to go platinum
