Rihanna On New Album: “It’s Coming Very Soon…I Hope”

Published: Wednesday 19th Nov 2014 by Sam

Rihanna fans are growing impatient. And with good reason too.

The star’s Navy have been treated to half-baked, yet easily appeasing albums from her almost every year since she hit the scene in 2005.

However, the 26 year old’s eighth LP appears to be proving a problem.

Initially pencilled in for release last year, the set has been dented by numerous delays – which, like her fictitious reign, don’t seem to be letting up.

And while RiRi has largely remained mum about new music, she couldn’t dodge a direct question from Entertainment Tonight, who quizzed her on the project at an event to promote her new movie ‘Home’ (due March 2015).

Watch what she said below…

Closed body language and uncertain words. Either RiRi really is stuck when it comes to her next McAlbum, or she’s boxing it up, pairing it with a cheap toy/ploy, and getting ready to throw it out to the hungry masses. Stay tuned to see how it plays out.

Your thoughts?

      • Lana Del Fan *I Can Hear The Sirens* November 19, 2014

        You’re such a loose booty f*****. Like damn, go somewhere you schizophrenic c o c k sucker.

  3. Marley November 19, 2014

    Does she really lack that much control that she does not even know when her albums gonna drop for certain? Chile the difference between her and Beyonce. One has to wait for their labels decision while the other does not even tell their label. And Im just saying! So don’t get all up in your feelings Navy.

    • lsyupp November 19, 2014

      Um just because bey said that, that doesn’t mean. Its true… Just like how she said she writes…

      • You tried November 19, 2014


        Why argue when FACTS always WINS! These kids are MAD cuz QUEEN BEY stays on top and she’s respected not abused *Coughs* in this industry!

        Sips Tea and waits for this SUPRISE ALBUM LOL


    • Marley November 19, 2014

      But honey the Columbia boss said that. Not Beyonce.

  4. Lolwhat November 19, 2014

    this McArticle is extremely cute! wow wow

    • Mark111 November 19, 2014

      Right? Lol, the backfire.

      • Lolwhat November 19, 2014

        aha, the sarcasmo

      • FAF November 19, 2014

        Its not backfiring if u came here & read it.. they get paid off ads and views

    • Lolwhat November 20, 2014

      @FAF I came here, read it & said what I wanted to say. and I’m generous.

  5. BeyRihLiyah November 19, 2014

    the shade yall throw at her is TIRED!!!!!!!!!

  6. Mark111 November 19, 2014

    Sam’s writing is so basic 3rd grade. Dude, have some range. Here’s his format: Give a half ass complement with weak shade and then repeat for another 2 paragraphs.

    Anyway, R8 baby! Rihanna always bring something new to the game. Everyone should be excited, cause when know whatever new writer, producer Rih brings in, Beyonce and Ciara will follow with their next EP.

    • FAF November 19, 2014

      like Ciara did crunk & hip hop trap music in 05 & rihanna rinsed & repeated for “poor it up” ???

      • Mark111 November 20, 2014

        I’m sure Crunk N B isn’t trap music. Sorry, but Ci’s movement didn’t last. I think she only popped because everyone from the A was popping.

  7. Love Life November 19, 2014

    Honey this album better slay both quality and sales wise because the Navi finna get dragged for all this poop talking they been doing about people have actually managed to do both.

    • Mark111 November 19, 2014

      Funny you guys think “dragging” effect people or things. At the end of the day, YOU’RE $35 a month government housing rent is due.

      • Love Life November 19, 2014

        Clearly it does. Otherwise people like you and your little alligances wouldn’t spend 90% of your time on here arguing about the same sales/impact debate day after day. How much have YOU sold? How much impact have YOU made?

      • tyler November 19, 2014

        It affected you enough for you to feel the need to throw personal insults around.

  8. Simone Torro November 19, 2014

    yeah Rih please release it as soon as you can – Bey needs some fresh inspirations and ideas!

  9. datreddone23 November 19, 2014

    Of courses Sam doesn’t post the success shes had with the viva glam charity and that being with over 43 million products sold all of which profits have been donated to charity

  10. Revolution November 19, 2014

    Whats the big secret? I don’t get it.

  11. tyler November 19, 2014

    Wow! She’s the only singles dependent artist who has lasted this long. AMAZING.

    • Cupid November 19, 2014

      Singles dependent? She has multiple platinum albums….. What are you talking about?

      • tyler November 20, 2014

        That her album success doesnt come CLOSE to her singles success…thats what im saying.

  12. Slay_Hive November 19, 2014

    LOL I forgot about her releasing an album. The anticipation is nothing like it was when Bey took her break. Her and her team keep releasing little hints about the album to build up anticipation since no one cares. The desperation. LMAO

    • datreddone23 November 19, 2014

      Every event shes been at shes been asked about her album artists are doing interviews being questioned about the release of her album Idk if you have twitter but R8 trends consistently you sound ignorant honey this album us the most anticipated of the year and there are many receipts to back that up

      • Slay_Hive November 19, 2014

        Honey where are the receipts of this being the most anticipated of the year, when I barely hear anything about it. Besides her team giving hints and her returning to IG, obviously seeking attention. I’m just saying Beyonce didn’t have to do all of that. I can also understand her being asked about her album on interviews because she is a pop artist and has noticeably been on break after releasing and over-saturating annually. Still the anticipation is nothing like it was last year for Bey. Not on the blogs nor twitter. I don’t really think anyone is dying for new Rihanna music.

      • datreddone23 November 19, 2014

        U must not have seen the interviews where the interviewer’s were quizzing neyo dj mustard dj skee ect ect or the articles about Rihanna turning down Calvin Harris and him being b*** hurt about it or even the fake album track list that was trending on twitter

      • Slay_Hive November 19, 2014

        Yes I think thatgrapejuice reported on that and it got like, maybe 20 comments. So much anticipation. kii

      • datreddone23 November 19, 2014

        Your ignorant if u think thatgrapejuice comments determines anything when this is a lessor blog to the likes of Perez hilton media takeout or b***** for example

  13. Slay_Hive November 19, 2014

    DEATH @ “I Hope”. Bey still has her under pressure, I see. Beyonce’s new songs from a re-release are garnering more hype than any news about FLop8. Guess they have to wait until Bey’s attention dies all the way dowm, so that she can sneak in when it’s safe. A mess

    • datreddone23 November 19, 2014

      Like when Beyonce waited until all the other girls to release before she released hers?

      • Slay_Hive November 19, 2014

        Beyonce didn’t wait at all. ALL of the pop girls. Miley, Katy, Gaga, and Britney releasedin the last quarter of 2013. Beyonce just ended up being the last one to release AND outsold EVERYONE. The only one who I noticed that was missing was Rihanna. She ran from the competition and decides to release when all the pop girls eras are coming to an end. The navi is a MESS!

      • datreddone23 November 19, 2014

        Umm Rihanna has released annually every year when major competition was out every year! Why would she be scared to release now when shes at the highest level of her career thus far? Didn’t she resign to a record label or have been given a new recording contract since she had proven herself? maybe there are thousands of other reasons that we don’t know as to why she hasn’t released but doesn’t she have all of us talking about it now even the haters? kii

      • Slay_Hive November 19, 2014

        Beyonce has been around for 17+ years. She has competed with Christina, Britney and now she’s still here with the newbies. Beyonce outlasts the competition sweetheart. Let’s get that right. Lastly Beyonce wasn’t scared to release. The entire year of 2013 She was touring on her record breaking Mrs Carter show tour, recording her album, and recording music videos. Beyonce said she released her album when it was READY!

      • datreddone23 November 19, 2014

        And Rihanna is still here as well still relevant 10 years into her career she started from the bottom and made it to the top her rise is remarkable aswell. Rihanna was also on a successful tour I don’t see Beyonce having as successful of a tour as Rihannas Diamonds tour at 26 so please don’t deny her success and impact. Rihanna has competed and keeping up aswell remember lady gaga and adele?

      • Slay_Hive November 19, 2014

        Saying Rihanna is relevant after ten years is not much considering she had to release an album for each year. kii The fact that Bey has been here longer, with less albums than ALL of these new girls and still relevant, if not the most relevant. Speaks volumes. At the age of 26 Beyonce was just on her second album, with several grammys, performing for dignitaries, a lead vocalists of one of the best selling girl groups of all time and receiving plenty of praise from legendary artist for her TALENT. The question is where will Rihanna be 17+ years into her career. Will she still be here competing with new artists or will she be replaced by the next model with a mic?

      • datreddone23 November 19, 2014

        After 10 years Rihanna has become the embodiment of modern day female pop star. She will be legendary and has proven her success her stats are up there with greats around the world at only 26 she is doing the damn thing and is staying relevant each year while other pop stars fade out and peaked she is the “black Madonna”

      • Slay_Hive November 19, 2014

        Rihanna is not the embodiment of the modern female pop star while Beyonce is still living and relevant. Rihanna’s achievements are only on paper. What has she accomplished that is so major, other than those 13 cheap forgettable hit singles? She lacks in the talent department and has never been compared to the greats before her. Rihanna will be no more than what Britney Spears was. A pop star. No more and no less. Beyonce’s impact and star power is similar to Madonna’s. Just because Rihanna plays dress up and changes her wigs doesn’t make her “the black Madonna”. Beyonce has been around longer, has made more of an impact and is more respected. How could she be fading and she is still here after all of these years selling more than her younger peers with no effort at all? lol I can’t even take you seriously.

    • tyler November 19, 2014

      Rihanna better hope that her next singles is a SMASH. Because if her singles flop her album sales are going to take a huge hit

  14. LDN Chick November 19, 2014

    Lol. Where are the trolls who sprint into Beyonce music posts faster than Usain Bolt and give her 200+ comments but are ghost or late when its a post on their fave. I can’t. Yet everyones bored of Beyonce and hyped for Rihanna yet Im getting nothing but Tumbleweed teas in here.

    • tyler November 19, 2014

      Usain Bolt HAHAHAHAHAHA *Spits out Pepsi*

  15. datreddone23 November 19, 2014

    I think I hope meant her finishing the album in its entirety clearly shes still working on it and is hoping to have it completed as fast as possible seeing as the demand for it is overshadowing everything else shes doing right now

  16. Bnc November 19, 2014

    Her voice is hoarse, she smokes too much (

  17. blue November 19, 2014

    i hope the album is done soon too. What is the hive doing in here? Dont they have 2 back to back post to fill their time with?

  18. tyler November 19, 2014

    she’ll always be known more for her singles than her albums anyways.

    • blue November 19, 2014

      she still has 3 memorable albums though so she is fine.

      • tyler November 19, 2014

        TBH she still hasnt had a memorable body of work…or at least one that has lasted for more than 6 months. Fact is, she can’t really sell that well without a single (or 2) dominating the airwaves, and iTunes.

      • blue November 19, 2014

        please gggb, loud and rated r disagree. Who of her peers has done what you claim though? Bey’s most acclaimed album was dead less than 5 months after release so please name 3 of her peers to have memorable albums to last over 6 months without a string of singles to support it

      • LDN Chick November 19, 2014

        So it was ‘dead’ less than 5 months after, but still managed to outsell Unapologetic. What does thats say about your overexposed faves era?

  19. blue November 19, 2014

    really dont get the mystery around this release, its not gonna be a surprise cause we know its coming so why else? What else do thy have planned. Im thinking there is some deal or big promo thing around the album’s release and that is what they are trying to find from everyone.

  20. let’s be real November 19, 2014

    i wont lie, im beyhive till the death!but im excited to see what she’ll serve up!

    • tyler November 19, 2014

      The Navy sure do talk alot of s*** for a fan base who’s fave hasn’t even released any new material. So the s*** better be good too.

  21. whateveryouIam,you are too November 19, 2014

    You idiots ran with “I hope” as if she was refering to whether the album is going to drop or not……ya’ll stupidity is out of this world. Beyonce’s album was also a macalbum, most if not all the songs on the album weren’t even worth a 0.59 cent chicke mcnugget!!!!!

  22. Beysus November 19, 2014

    Hahahahahaha!!! Can’t wait for this to flop…

    • blue November 19, 2014

      i find people like you stupid as f**** not just hive members but even navy members, rihanna constantly does a min of 1 mil in the usa and 3 mill total ww, what indication do you have that she will flop for you to wait for it? Logic will Rephrase that to you at the very least hoping she flops or you could at least wait to here the material before making such a statement…same goes to both fan groups who make this stupid claims to only have them backfire on them.

      • Beysus November 19, 2014

        Ugh shut up h**…

      • datreddone23 November 19, 2014

        Yasssss! Slay the hypocrites @Blue

  23. blue November 19, 2014

    to the hive member accusing rihanna of being scared to release here is a little question for you:
    when was the last time bey released the same week as an artist who could potentially outsell her? Now think about the fact that with each of her releases rihanna went up against people who generally pulled in more than her first week but she still released.

    • Beysus November 19, 2014

      Why does Rihanna release an album around the same damn time??? Oh that’s right! To try (and fail) to sell!!!

      • blue November 19, 2014

        and for 4 years with out fail regardless of the competition she has released her album in november, and guess what if you asked any person to name an album released november 2011, they might not know the name of the album but rihanna name will be one they alter first because that is her month regardless of who released that month and beat her to the top that was her month.

    • Slay_Hive November 19, 2014

      What does that suppose to mean? Beyonce always had set album release dates even with 4 (When she didn’t have a hit single) Obviously the competition runs from Beyonce. Her debut weeks are ALWAYS bigger than Rihanna’s. She will debut at number one regardless. Rihanna’s just not that big of a seller, and she should be with all of those hits. Competition should be nothing for her. She should just be able to release her album out of nowhere and slay while the competition is still on the charts and not say a word. Kinda like Bey did with self-titled. 😉

      • datreddone23 November 19, 2014

        But isn’t loud in the top 10 selling albums of this generation? Yes she never has had big week first sales in the us but one thing she does have is consistency in regards to her outselling artists that had bigger first week sales but end up fizzling out for example loud in the end outsold Born this way even though born this way sold 1 mill it’s first week and lout did over 200 k

      • blue November 19, 2014

        funny how you say rihanna should be crushing her competition and avoiding the simple fact that of the two rihanna has shown that she isnt afraid of the competition, while bey released her surprise album in a completly competition free week.

      • Slay_Hive November 19, 2014

        LOL I always laugh when I hear the navi claim Loud was one of the best selling albums of this generation. The sales were not even that great. When just two years before IASF was released and slayed those sales with only ONE #1 hit single. Please tell me what the qualifications were to be considered “this generation”. Is that 2010-present or what? LOL After releasing an album every year this decade except 2013, She should be on there.

      • datreddone23 November 19, 2014

        Yes Google it as of the present generation where album sales have declined dramatically Rihannas loud has sold over 6 mill world wide. Selling more then Gaga at her peak and you say she’s had no competition? Especially when She can prove she can sell albums and singles every year

    • blue November 19, 2014

      i asked but a simple question and you couldnt name one person bey went up against.

      • LDN Chick November 19, 2014

        Beyonce was up against Katy Perry, Britney Spears, Lady gaga, Miley Cyrus, Frozen, Lorde this era. All released before her, so all should have easily been ahead of her. Yet thd only one that outsold her was Frozen. Question answered for you.

      • Beysus November 19, 2014

        Umm Britney??? Miley??? Katy??? Gag Gag???

      • blue November 19, 2014

        read my question again please. Because only person you mentioned who could have potentially outsold her is lady gaga but thats if you ignored how badly her overall sales for BTW were and they never went head to head first week. Try again.

      • LDN Chick November 19, 2014

        @Blue you sound stupid. You said who she went up against. Thats your answer. All of them could have ‘potentially’ outsold her but didn’t. When has Rihanna ever released the same WEEK as anyone? None of the other girls released the same WEEK. Competition lasts more than one week anyway, like the Navi say when they want to ignore Rihanna abysmal first week sales.

      • blue November 19, 2014

        of the top of my head i could mention susan oye who rihanna went up against twice! Paul mccartney.

        Again most of the girls you mentioned were never going to pull big number or have never pulled big numbers so no that wasnt competition.

      • LDN Chick November 19, 2014

        Well Beyonce has released the same week as Taylor Swift and Christina Aguilera before and those are actually relevant pop competitors.

  24. girlbye November 19, 2014

    I mean rihanna did just say she had 10 songs done clearly shes not done. And beyhive need to shut up and deal with them two tired ass tracks beyonce gave them.

  25. blue November 19, 2014

    say hive name one artist who she went up against that could have potentially outsold her. You cant can you? And maybe you are right that the competition runs from her but point is rihanna goes up against people who pull in more and she never backs down so what makes you think she is running scared now?

    • Slay_Hive November 19, 2014

      LOL What are you talking about. So Beyonce has to center her album release dates around other artists just to compete? You are still missing the point. Beyonce’s debut album sells are always big. She will get that number 1 spot regardless. If she would have went against Katy , Miley, Britney and Gaga in the same week last year, she still would have came out on top, being that they don’t have the same fan base and her numbers were much more bigger. Make sense please

      • blue November 19, 2014

        point i was making was that when i comes down to it bey has never gone up against someone who could pull as big a number as her, say swift, or pre BTW gaga or susan boiled im not saying she should center her releases just for the competition just that she hasnt gone up against anyone who could jake outsold her intentional or not while rihanna has, multiple of times so the claim that rihanna was scared to release because of bey being competition was ridiculous. Simple point.

      • LDN Chick November 19, 2014

        Beyonce went up against Swift in her IASF era. Do your research

  26. Revolution November 19, 2014

    The film comes in March? Isn’t there a soundtrack shes doing as well? Jesus how does she expect to sell both. That should be interesting.

  27. Cheapyonce November 19, 2014

    she said ”that’s my hope”

  28. DanYiel Teflon November 19, 2014

    I support anything Dc3 Artist put out I’m a true friend of the group & artist I support TALENT!!

  29. TurntUp4CiCi November 19, 2014

    Beyonce and Rihanna posts are so boring

    • Beysus November 19, 2014

      Jealous cause Cierror doesn’t get any???

      • TurntUp4CiCi November 19, 2014

        No are you jealous cuz 7/11 will flop like her other singles

      • Beysus November 19, 2014

        Just like ALL of Ciaras singles have flopped since ’05???

    • BeyRihLiyah November 19, 2014

      lol says a he-ara stan your just mad because n*****-ara gets dragged by every fan base when tgj makes a post about her

  30. Taylor swift number 1 fan!! November 19, 2014

    Billboard 200: #1 @taylorswift13, “1989” 312,000 (2,000,000 total). *3 weeks at #1* in the states!

    • datreddone23 November 19, 2014

      Noone here is checking for Taylor her album was cute and relatable to the majority of Americans who are white so congrats to her and her fake “authentic” album

  31. blue November 19, 2014

    point i was making was that when i comes down to it bey has never gone up against someone who could pull as big a number as her, say swift, or pre BTW gaga or susan boyle im not saying she should center her releases just for the competition just that she hasnt gone up against anyone who could have outsold her intentional or not, while rihanna has, multiple of times so the claim that rihanna was scared to release because of bey being competition was ridiculous. Simple point.

    • Slay_Hive November 19, 2014

      Who has Rihanna competed with? LOL Beyonce doesn’t have to release every album during Black Friday week.

    • LDN Chick November 19, 2014

      DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE YOU WRITE DRIVEL. Beyonce was up against Taylor during her IASF era. When has Rihanna gone uo against those peopel?? She has also released around the time of big Rock bands who could have easiler pushed her off the charts. But she stays on top.

    • LDN Chick November 19, 2014

      Taylor Swift Fearless:
      November 11 2008

      Beyonce I am Sasha Fierce:
      November 15 2008

      …. Your point is dismissed.

  32. Tyler November 19, 2014

    It’s not our fault that rihanna’s albums loose steam quickly after recently being released

  33. Tyler November 19, 2014

    It’s like you started a discussion and you don’t know to argue/don’t have reliable receipts. Rihanna has released 7 albums and still has not passed the 30 million mark in album sales and you will deal until you can prove otherwise, which you can’t.
    Dear Navy,

    Keep the inflated receipts to yourselves.

    Yours Truly,

    That Tyler thing is having a meltdown, lol. Rih got em mad, cause they know they’re faves era is coming to an end. #OhWell

    • Slay_Hive November 19, 2014

      Funny that Beyonce’s era is coming to an end and now she’s finally ready to release. lmao #UnderPressure

      • Mark111 November 19, 2014

        GGGB came out 8 months after B-Naw. Loud was 6 months before 4 and TTT came out after. Rihanna released albums during Bey, Katy, Brit and Gaga eras. She has 7 album, Bey been solo for 10, so how and when was Rihanna running? I do like how Beyonce was released randomly 2 weeks after Rihvember. I guess she had to make sure the coast was clear.#Welp

      • Slay_Hive November 19, 2014

        LMAO Are you seriously comparing albums that came out SEVERAL months after each other as “competition” but have the nerve to say Bey ran from the competition when she released her non-promoted album out of nowhere within weeks of the all of the pop girls? B**** Beyonce wasn’t worried about Rihanna. Rihanna usually releases two generic singles by the time FLOPvember gets here. Everyone was anticipating Bey and paying Rih DUST! Rih’s team knew it and told her to sit ha ass ZOWN! Neyo was the one who said she was under pressure, and he actually knows her. Don’t be mad at me. #BYE 😀

  37. LDN Chick November 19, 2014

    @Blue. Do you actually do research before you write all that nonsense. Because you would know Beyonce has gone up against Taylor Swift before.

    • Mark111 November 19, 2014

      And not only was TS first week sales were higher and the highest of that year (bigger than Bey and Brit that was released within 5 weeks apart) and won Album of the Year. So…

      • LDN Chick November 19, 2014

        Who was talking to you flee? Stay in your lane. Because Grammys and first week sales is not Rihannas strength. Something both Taylor and Beyonce scalp her with.

      • Mark111 November 19, 2014

        Hahahaha, who brags over grammy? When someone like Bey and Jay can have 17, then those bought things mean nothing.

      • LDN Chick November 19, 2014

        But YOU brought the Grammys into it not me lmao. Grammys are a lot to brag over, if Rihanna was to win album of the year you know you would be happy. So don’t play coy just because your fave falls short.

      • Mark111 November 19, 2014

        No hooker. I brought up Album of the Year, awards that really matters. Not lil silly ones like Best Pop Vocal, Best R&B song feating a camel BS.

      • LDN Chick November 20, 2014

        But is it or is it not a Grammy?

      • blue November 20, 2014

        @LDN you do your research cause IASF was released a week after fearless, and taylor wasnt even considered a contender for the #1 spot. So try again. The only person to over any real threat was nickelback and they did 300 to bey’s 500k so again they wERENT much of a threat.

  38. DMWN November 19, 2014

    I can’t wait to NOT buy it! 😆
    With her big head, big nose, big lips and sh!tty voice.

  39. Tyler November 19, 2014

    No, not mad but sad about the fact that singles are the only tool that Rihanna can do to sell albums…Since she has nothing else going on for musically her :/

    • Tyler November 19, 2014

      *for her musically:/

  40. Rosie November 19, 2014

    She needs to come now because pop music has been a mess for the past year and some.

    The new Bey snippets sound great. Not posting in those posts because I already know it’s the same tired 200+ comment stan war.

  41. Blue Ivy Rodriguez November 19, 2014

    Isn’t this Taylor’s third 1 million first week in sales album? How would Beyoncé come on top if Taylor sold more in first week than beyonce did with all her albums combined?

    Beyoncé would not have beaten Taylor if they both released during the same week.

    Blue was saying that Beyoncé knows this and that’s why she decided to WAIT DEC when there were NO strong competition out to do her surprise release. If she released her album the same way when Miley, Katy and Lorde had their steam then she would most likely not see those numbers.

    Though it doesn’t really matter because first week sales are not definite sales so people who have high first week US sales may never see platinum but people who don’t may reach double platinum.

    For example.. Bruno Mars/Nicki Minaj

    • Sass November 19, 2014

      ‘If Taylor sold more im one week than Beyonces albums combined’

      Ummm did you pass math in school? Beyonce album alone was 10k away from 1 mill. And the rest of her albums have all sold over 400k first week so wtf are you talking about? And how do you know she would ‘most likely’ not have. Based on what exactly?

      • Blue Ivy Rodriguez November 19, 2014

        Three first week albums went platinum for Taylor in a row that’s three million, Beyoncé highest was 600, (that 900,000 was worldwide) so the most Beyoncé albums all combined did were 1.5-1.8 million so please tell me about your math skills because it seems you are adding worldwide figures when the hive only likes to use USA soooo which one is it?

      • Sass November 19, 2014

        Look, you can’t even argue with correct receipts. Just stop. Beyonces lowest first week sales are still higher than Rihanna’s most so I don’t know why you’re bringing Taylor into it lol.

  42. Tyler November 19, 2014

    Rihanna has released more albums than Beyonce and the gap is still not that big.
    And let’s not even get into 1st week sales…

  43. Skyfall November 19, 2014

    R8 and 25 will slay and the lessors will deal

  44. Kingbeybitch November 19, 2014

    If she flops the Navy better run for cover. They legit acting like the monsters did before Artpop everyone day comes, y’all better hope she doesn’t flop!

  45. Sass November 19, 2014

    Why are y’all arguing over release dates. Rihanna does not even chose her damn release dates, her puppet masters do, I mean this interview is enough to prove that. And dead at the navy spending more time in the Beyonce post than their fave.

  46. Kingbeybitch November 19, 2014

    Yass hunty cling to those Taylor Swift numbers

  47. Blue Ivy Rodriguez November 19, 2014

    @Ldn Chick Mark111 clocked you. Beyoncé didn’t even outdo Taylor that year either. Your receipt is now void.

    • Kingbeybitch November 19, 2014

      She never said Beyonce outdid Taylor she said she released the same time as she did. Learn to read you idiot!

    • LDN Chick November 19, 2014

      How is it void and what did eh clock? The blue person was saying she has never gone up against Taylor when she has. Don’t invite yourself into a conversation when you clearly don’t know what we were talking about originally.

  48. Tyler November 19, 2014

    All of these hypothetical “what ifs” are dumb af. Based on her track record Beyonce always has relatively good 1st week numbers.

    Idc how she released “Beyonce”. An A+ is still a muthafuckin A+.

  49. Blue Ivy Rodriguez November 19, 2014

    Beyoncé sold more albums but Rihanna sold more records. Beyoncé may sell more 1st week but does it really matter? She never went diamond and she will never go diamond (doubt anyone else will either) in this climate so this thing about Beyoncé being a mega seller or an album seller is very misleading. Album sellers are Adele, Enimem, Janet, Madonna, Mariah Carey and Tupac.. (Taylor and Bruno may be added to the list to if they keep it up)

    • LDN Chick November 19, 2014

      I stopped after Beyonce sold more albums. Death, with just 5? Even I didn’t know that. Death death death,

  50. datreddone23 November 19, 2014

    Ooooh the hive is seething like the mad buzzing bees they are they truly love there queen but are yet still so pressed by this chick RIRI! Continue to make them buzz envy RIH!

    • Kingbeybitch November 19, 2014

      Bye ho

  51. Kingbeybitch November 19, 2014

    But why the Navy gotta cling to Taylors numbers to drag tho lmao I can’t

  52. LDN Chick November 19, 2014

    @Kingbeybitches. They always want to bring in others because they can’t use Rihanna’s receipts alone. At least the hive only use Beyonce and don’t jump on the next person to drag Rihanna. And all Taylor is proving is that she’s scalping Rihanna as the supposed #1 pop chick in the game. I wouldn’t mind, but it’s not like Rihanna can slay her. Taylor is the only female to keep up with Beyonce this year.

    • Kingbeybitch November 19, 2014

      Lmaooo ikr they make absolutely no sense

  53. biting truth November 19, 2014

    LOL@”I hope.” This stupid, tone deaf h** has no control over anything, except her Instagram account. Oh wait, she doesn’t control that either. R******’s album ain’t coming “soon” because her camp knows that with all this competition this quarter by real album sellers, she would get her ass handed to her during that first sales week worst than that time Chris handed it to her.

  54. Tyler November 19, 2014

    Umm the last time I checked, the navy was Rihanna’s stan base not Taylors. That’s right, stay clinging because u b****** have nothing else

  55. Blue Ivy Rodriguez November 19, 2014

    The hive are living in delusion. When Beyoncé said “who needs a degree?” The hive should scream “Not me!” Like come on your fave isn’t an album seller just like many others, besides even if Beyoncé was one then how could Rihanna remain a singles artist if she sold the Sam amount of albums worldwide as Beyoncé? Keep the “Oh Rihanna has more albums and Beyoncé only did it with 5” shade because Adele has sold over 27 million albums with one and that wasn’t even her first one so what’s the excuse?

    • LDN Chick November 19, 2014

      Still bringing in others because you can’t use Rihanna? Loool.

  56. Slay_Hive November 19, 2014

    Chile I’m so over the navy and these “record” sales lmao. We all know she sells singles. $1.29 is not impressive to me. When others are selling $16 albums with no discount. Just imagine if Bey discounted her album like Unapologetic 😀

  57. Blue Ivy Rodriguez November 19, 2014

    16 dollars sold but it’s a very expensive era and production so let’s see if she broke even with everything. All said and done

    • Slay_Hive November 19, 2014

      Girl check the 2014 forbes list again. kii Where is the “record” selling singles artist?

      • datreddone23 November 19, 2014

        She’s on the Forbes list every year making over at least 40 million a year and she is still on the rise at 26,with greater and big things to come! She has the respect her presence is a force to be reckoned with at any event she attends she is a SUPERB artist as a black female that’s phenomenal!

  58. LDN Chick November 19, 2014

    And they’re boasting that Rihanna has sold more records, like that’s some kind of achievement lol.

  59. Rosie November 19, 2014

    These insecure f*** stay clinging to Taylor.
    No one is denying she is #1 right now. The Navi need to stop denying that BOTH are currently ahead of Rihanna in literally everything except single sales.

  60. Rosie November 19, 2014

    Post about the Billboard 200 including Spotify streams starting next month.
    I’ve been using it and nothing else since it launched here a few months ago but mess.

  61. Kingbeybitch November 19, 2014

    Oh Rihanna has more albums and Beyoncé only did it with 5″ shade because Adele has sold over 27 million albums with one and that wasn’t even her first one so what’s the excuse?

    Stop dragging your own fave you f****** idiot!

  62. Tyler November 19, 2014

    The Navy as a whole just neeed to stfu.
    To have soooo many #1 singles and not have more than 2 albums sell over 6+ mill explains it all doesn’t it?
    I’d say she’s a little better than Katy and Kesha when it comes to album sales….but her albums do not nearly match up to her singles success #SinglesArtist

  63. Vandrea November 19, 2014

    Rihanna’s album could come out tomorrow and I wouldn’t buy it. She can’t sing and her music is generally horrible. Not worth my money.

  64. Blue Ivy Rodriguez November 19, 2014

    Yet a singles artist is selling out stadiums, clothing lines, plus charity campaigns? I’m not denying Beyonce’s impact, just y’all are getting ahead of yourselves. And clinging to Taylor when the hive was clinging to tours gross and movie box offices to try drag Rihanna? They were also clinging to Adele, Justin Timberlakes first week sales to try drag the “Singles artist”. It doesn’t make sense so keep clinging to those album sales drags even though your fave has written any songs on all her albums not even her hits

  65. Slay_Hive November 19, 2014

    Selling out stadiums? You make that sound so impressive. Why didn’t she make into the top ten highest grossing tours of all time list? The hive can cling to Beyonce’s tour gross and box office receipts because they are hers, and shows that she is more well rounded than Rihanna. No one clings to Adele and Justin etc better than the navy. What f****** single has Rihanna written since you like to cling to her single sales. kii

    • datreddone23 November 19, 2014

      She is right behind Beyonce very close I think louds 90 million grossing tour and diamonds remarkable 141 million gross with less dates was phenomenal! She proved her star power with STADIUMS sold without major promotion sponsor ships or SUPER BOWL hype. Youngest successful black female tour gross EVER 🙂

      • Slay_Hive November 19, 2014

        That is a damn lie. She is not right behind Beyonce. Beyonce’s MCSWT grossed over 220 Million and is top five highest grossing female tour of all time. Beyonce is the ONLY African American female on the list. She was also out-grossing Rihanna on average even when compared with the same amount of dates. Rihanna is not on the list. Those stadiums did not help her. Which is nothing to brag about, being that she was supposedly “stadium status” and had an album and hit single out at the same time. Beyonce may have performed at the super bowl, but she had no new music and was two years after a “flop” era and was “washed up” (according to the navy) 🙂

  66. Tyler November 19, 2014

    Rihanna is a singles artist. A 90 million tour is not a failure… $10 dollar tickets are. The bulk of her touring success comes from Europe. Whilst Beyonce sold more tickets at higher prices on MULTIPLE continents.

    And yes I will bring Katey into this because she’s adding 2nd dates in North America, something that Rihanna still can’t do after album 9 years.

  67. TheElusiveLamb November 19, 2014

    All I know is Rihanna is Queen and beautiful! Haters can go check their Metro PCS cellphone voice mail to see if their welfare is in their Mothers mailbox or jump off into the Niagara Falls. Your choice. 🙂

  68. Era of Tin November 19, 2014

    Number one singles become less impressive when the “artist” habitually FAILS to get the album they’re cut from to go multiplatinum. Her singles success is the result of marketing and just says that the overall public doesn’t see her as a real artist, or trust that her music as a whole is worth more than the cost of a single. When put into proper context, Rihanna’s overall sales are VERY mediocre. That’s why she has all those back-to-back-to-back-to-back albums. If she didn’t stack the deck like that, she would be the female equivalent to Jason Derulo.

  69. NOLIES November 19, 2014

    Sam shade is becoming as tired as Rihanna and Beyoncé. Jay-Z need to sit both of those untalented thots the f*** down! People are sick of seeing Beyoncé huge contoured jelly thighs jiggle in left over Tina Turner leotards doing stripper moves with missing her hillbilly timbre playback. And we ALL know people are tired of Payola forcing the radio to play the autotuned goat. Then again if they didn’t exist, the skin bleaching and STD clinic markets in the economy wouldn’t be booming so continue to thot on b******.

    • tyler November 19, 2014

      Okay so you’re either delusional….Or blinded by the glare of Rihanna’s big black ass head.

  70. Brian310 November 19, 2014

    It’s 1 thing to talk about her talent which is subjective but to blatantly lie about there being an album date penciled in last year is pathetic.

    • Tea November 19, 2014

      Talent is not subjective. lol

      You can either sing well, or you can’t.
      You can either dance well, or you can’t.
      You can either act well, or you can’t.

      Each of those things can be measured and certified.

      And lets face, Rihanna technically fails at all of them.

    • tyler November 19, 2014

      Since when was talent subjective??? Style is subjective, creativity is subjective, attractiveness is subjective. Talent however, is not. Technique and skill are learned factual aspects….they’re not subjective.

  71. Kyle November 20, 2014

    I appreciate this blog and I do agree with their views on Rihanna as a performer, because I think she definitely lacks the stage presence that she should possess at this point of her career but lets be real, her new album has NEVER had a release date. It’s all been media speculation and I think she’s just waiting for the right time to announce a release date. It has NEVER been pushed back or experienced delays.
