With not long to go before the release of her eighth studio album, Rihanna continues to make major digital moves on VEVO this week, doing so with a number of visuals released in eras gone by.
Uploaded on November 12th 2010, the entertainer’s ‘What’s My Name‘ visual continues to pull in major numbers this week, surpassing the 400 million mark and arriving at the 407,000,546 mark, pushing her subscriber count to 15,216,769.
Quite interestingly, the clip has now outperformed the better-known bop that is ‘Only Girl in the World’ which has been viewed 373,412,187 views to date.
In the UK, Island Pop newbie Melissa Steel sees her public profile reach higher ground with a little help from her new single ‘Kisses For Breakfast’, pulled from her Harmony Samuels– backed debut album.
Watched for a total of 31 years, the cut’s visual has driven 3,735 new subscribers to her official YouTube channel, and viewed 5,800,285 times since its June 9th 2014 unveiling!
As anticipation for her debut album grows, the video sees its popularity rise, seeing it perform better now than it did during its release period, crossing the 5 million mark in December 2015 and now less than 200,000 views from reaching the 6 million mark!
Joining this week’s ‘Clique Click’ is R&B diva Ciara, the chart-slaying force behind the new single ‘I Bet.’
In just five days, the single has been spun more times than her Pop jam ‘Overdose’ has since September 2013, reaching views of 1,793,060 before the release of its parent album ‘Jackie‘, due out later this year.
Meanwhile, her R&B classic ‘Ride’ locks lips with the 82 million mark this year, now boasting spins that sing to the tune of 82,177,168 as her ‘Goodies’-lifted ‘Oh’ sits pretty at the 5,500,159 mark!
On a sales front, sales and streams push Tinashe‘s ‘2 On‘ to the 1 million mark after it reached sales of 473,000 units in the August of 2014. Elsewhere, Katy Perry‘s ‘Prism’ reaches sales of 3,43,000 units worldwide as Nicki Minaj‘s ‘The Pinkprint’ crosses the 512,000 unit point globally one month after its release.
