Power: Rihanna Now Owns Masters Of Her Music

Published: Wednesday 25th Mar 2015 by Sam

As Pop puppets go, few come as overrated as Rihanna.

However, in recent years, the star’s narrative is becoming less Pinocchio and more power.

Granted the shift hasn’t been without its problems – as evidenced by the delay in the release of her new album, it looks set to be very lucrative move for the Bajan belle once the LP arrives.

Find out why below…

The 27-year-old’s official website was relaunched this week and while many basked in the aesthetic changes, it was the update on her biography that was most notable:

now recording her first album under the roc nation label with the ownership of her masters, she is busy adding more credits to her burgeoning resume: executive producer, fashion designer, actress, astute business entrepreneur and philanthropist.

Beyond the flowery rhetoric, it’s the ownership of her masters part that resonates with us most.

To put it simply, this means Ms. Fenty now owns her new music moving forward.

As Disc Makers potently highlights:

For decades, artists who signed a record deal with a label were expected to turn over the rights to their sound recordings – the actual studio/live recordings of their material. As part of a typical record deal, relinquishing these “master rights” was part of how an artist secured the financial support of the label to pay for the recording and release of the record.

With the master rights under their control, labels could then license the master recordings to third parties for placement in TV or film, use in commercials, or for use in another work (e.g. sampling) without the artists’ consent or monetary gain. Unless an artist had earned back all the money invested by the label in the recording and promotion of a record, all master license fees would stay with the label.

Say what we do about Rih, there’s no denying — this is major!

Of course, there’s the tall task of selling said music for any of this to matter. But, in the same breath, it’s an incredibly good look.

The model now joins the likes of Mariah Carey as one of the few superstars to own their music masters.

    • Patti Labelle March 25, 2015

      • RihAmerican (hives scared of R8) March 25, 2015

        Belt out a correct note??

        What are you expecting?? A church singer.The navy has said time and time again that Rihanna is no Whitney.why are you mad.Listen to your old Patti Laflop records and be happy with that.You have options.

    • Mo’Reefa March 25, 2015

      After all these years , 7 albums, & a couple of yeast infections???? I guess But #Kii *Plays Diva*

  2. Keri Qween March 25, 2015

    That rihanna reign

  3. blue March 25, 2015

    dont worry sam rihanna has never had a problem selling anything… And taking into consideration how many times she has been sampled so far, the bxtch stands to make her moola big time

    • Cupid March 25, 2015

      Ooooooookay!!! Her pockets are about to Double if not Triple!! If this next album is successful and full of hits as “timeless” as she claims she will be set for life.

  4. Patti Labelle March 25, 2015

    And she is busy preparing her self to decline!!!

  5. Unbiased March 25, 2015

    That’s really cool of Roc Nation to do that. I wish Whitney Houston owned her music before passing.

    • Patti Labelle March 25, 2015

      Really so sad. But atleast her mark are in the world… and she will inspire generations of singers

    • WINTZ March 25, 2015

      @unbiased Omg!!! I was just thinking this about Whitney. I love my music icons so much and I wish they maintained the business focus that would’ve allowed things like these. The ownership and right to your music material?? It’s a good look.

    • TheElusiveLamb March 25, 2015

      I wish that as well. I also wish that Clive had let Whitney more of her music like she wanted to. Royalties would have been on fleek for my baby. Now you have over here all sad.

    • Royalkev March 25, 2015

      Yes, Nippy soooo deserved this! Whitney, Janet & Prince actually! Without question, their 3 of the most influential legends from the 80’s! MJ had rights to his catalog, but unfortunately after temporarily signing it away he died the year it was supposed to return to him.

  6. haha fools March 25, 2015

    Lmao when will thief?

    • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig March 26, 2015

    #BeyLikeRihanna #BeyInspiredByRihanna

    • Patti Labelle March 25, 2015

      Humm noho be inspired no rihanna… rihanna is a mini Janet Jackson and a kind of horrible Shirley Bassey vocals

    • LOL March 25, 2015

      LOL YOU MEAN #RHIINSPIRED LOL.
      CUZ JAY Z’S SLAVE DOESN’T OWN HER MASTERS, HER MASTER DOES, LIKE HE OWNS HER LOL

      • Ciara the Flop March 25, 2015

        My comment was shade to the BeyHIVe but maybe the shade was too intellectual with the play on words.

  8. WINTZ March 25, 2015

    Wow. Phenomenal move on Rihanna’s part. This woman has a clear vision of where she wants to be and what she aims to achieve and it’s SO inspirational to see how much she has done at such a young age. #Boss
    Climb that powah towah rih!!! That reign though..

    • Patti Labelle March 25, 2015

      She has been pushed… stay peaced rihanna on her own is a flop… 45 seconds would have flopped badly without Kanye and Paul

      • blue March 25, 2015

        please tell me where only one is on the chart and come to me againt that paul and kanye are the reason FFS is doing so great

      • RihAmerican (hives scared of R8) March 25, 2015

        Actually, 45 seconds didn’t reach #1 because of Kanye.Rihanna saved it from flopping.Kanye is huge but he is no Eminem.Rihanna is not a flop on her own…Umm Diamonds?? WFL?? Only Girl?? Her collaborations just happen to be successful.

  9. yelyah the alternative queen March 25, 2015

    Maybe now she can start making actual money

    • guess March 25, 2015

      Yeah cause ten years in the game… she makes beyonce’s scraps.

    • blue March 25, 2015

      b**** is only worth 100million, how pitiful? Can she even afford food?

      • SMH March 25, 2015

        Pitiful? How much are you worth that puts you in a position to call a multimillionaire pitiful?

      • guess March 25, 2015

        I didn’t say she was broke. In comparison to beyonce, she makes no money. Beyonce made rih’s ten years worth of money in one measly year. Rihanna signs little girl deals compared to bey. 1 million to be a creative director< 50 million to hold a Pepsi can.

      • Rory March 25, 2015

        But you have to think about this way…… Rihanna made wayyyy more money in her FIRST ten years in the industry than Bey in her first ten

      • TinaMinaj March 25, 2015

        @Rory Bey didn’t have a whole bunch of forgotten albums in the first 10 years of her career either….

    • SMH March 25, 2015

      How much are you making? I guarantee its not even a tenth of what Rihanna makes.

      • Al March 25, 2015

        Child he on food stamps #okaay!

  10. ~The Arcade~ March 25, 2015

    It’s a good look for… hmmm, it really looks like she’s taking the mature route this era. *Applause*

    • ~The Arcade~ March 25, 2015

      *for her

  11. Slay_Hive March 25, 2015

    G She’s finally taking steps out of being a non respected industry puppet. Clearly #BeyInspired to start her own company. Even with the name. I just wonder why she’s so pressed to seem major and be a boss all of a sudden? Someone was tired of slaving and being outdone on Forbes!! :D.. Where is that album doe?

    • datreddone23 March 25, 2015

      For not being a fan your always concerned on when she’s releasing R8

      • Slay_Hive March 25, 2015

        I’m not concerned at all. Just wondering why she’s waiting, when she’s released a single two months ago. Is she waiting for it to reach #1?

    • datreddone23 March 25, 2015

      Maybe she’s waiting till after the Home soundtrack maybe she’s still recording who knows but she’s deff not scared to release

      • Slay_Hive March 25, 2015

        O ok. Well she released her first single before she released anything from home and usually she would have released an album title, release date, album cover or something by now. Especially seeing how artist are just dropping albums out of no where. (Bey’s impact). Neyo did say Beyonce’s album put pressure on Rihanna. Just wondering. No shade. 😉

    • RihAmerican (hives scared of R8) March 25, 2015

      R8 has nothing to do with fleayonce.What kind of delusion.She has been releasing around your fav for years with no cares or concerns.She is obviously focusing on “Home” this month because the movie is scheduled for release on the 27th.It actually makes sense to release R8 next month.For someone who is suppose to be beneath fleayonce you fleas do show a lot of concern for Rihanna’s release.And you all claim she is no competition.

      • RihAmerican (hives scared of R8) March 25, 2015

        Umm hello?? You asked the questions and I answered.Aww so the poor baby is crying over 4lop.I can’t! The navy was just calling it how it was.She produced no top 10 hit from 4 and the album struggled for 3 mill.That was only the truth.Get over it! At least 45 sec is in the top 10.And my name is dedicated to Rihanna.The haters/fleas are scared of R8.You’re actually proud of this??? Kii Moron What is that link suppose to be?? Gurl bye!!!

      • Slay_Hive March 25, 2015

        Honey 4 is a Platinum R&B album! That sold more than TTT and Una in the U.S without a top ten hit or #1 and sold only a few hundred thousand copies less than Ttt and Una WW.(both having #1 singles) Before 4 was released, Beyonce said the album wasn’t for the charts. Rihanna can’t sell without trend hopping and recording an album without generic Top 40 hits! Bey has proved she doesnt have to. When will Rih take that risk? No reason to cry when Bey always wins without even trying. 😉
        .
        That link proved that Bey has your fave under pressure. A credible source. Someone who ACTUALLY knows Rihhanna and is working on her album. Don’t hate the messenger. 😉
        .
        As far as you having your name dedicated to the Hive just shows how pressed you are with what we have to say and you just added RihAmerican to your name. 😉 Seems like you’re worried about us. CHange your name girl. It makes you look bitter, while we laugh! 😀

      • RihAmerican (hives scared of R8) March 25, 2015

        Actually, its the other way around.Rihanna put pressure on Fleayonce. Why do you think she released a s** album?? She tried to compete with “Pour it up” TTT. Death @ the struggle link.4 took 45634678 years to reach 3 mill and still hasn’t reach the success of TTT and UN(even with heavy promo).Stop the lies.As a matter of fact it produced no top 10 hit.Stop clinging to the US.She flopped WW.You know it’s a damn flop that’s why you’re all in your feelings.Why do you care if we defend R8?? The fleas and Navy have been going back and forth before 4 era.Wipe those tears honey.Gurl!! Every comment you make is dedicated to Rihanna/ Navy so what is your point? And Im not saying anything good about you fat ratchet whores. Blahhh I only care about defending Rihanna.

      • Slay_Hive March 25, 2015

        No it’s not the other way around. Beyonce has been making R&B/hip hop/urban music since her DC days. Rihanna only jumped on the Ratchet/Urban trend during her fourth album! Self Titled was not a s** album. When only 5 out of 14 song were s** themed. The album dealt with several different topics. Including miscarriage depression, female empowerment and self-esteem etc. The f****** reach!! Honey it’s not my fault Neyo spilled the tea, and that was four months ago. Lls Don’t you find it weird that her album hasn’t been named or released yet? What’s the Hold up then?!! Lmao
        .
        Like I said 4 was an R&B album and went Platinum just like Ttt and Una with no top tens or #1’s. In America(the country where ya’ll brag about #1 hits.) Yes it underperformed WW in comparison to Rihanna’s POP releases, but not by much! Could Rihanna do the same without clinging to the charts?!! Hell no! Lmaoo Death @you thinking im Crying..You were the one that Called 4 a “4lop”. I just corrected you. At Least ALL of Bey’s albums are platinum(1) and the rest Multi-platinum. Can’t say the same for Bad Gal! Ctfu
        .
        I comment more on my fave than anyone on this blog. This just happens to be a Rihanna post boo. I’m not a stalker like the Navy’s Own “I Stand For Talent” and my name damn sure isnt dedicated to the Navy sweety. 😉 Good Day!!

    • Rihboy March 25, 2015

      B**** shut your mad a$$ up. I was waiting on your pressed self at the door. Coming in here with your fibs and inflations. Nothing says she was inspired by the thief of all trades. Clearly states above that Mariah was thee first. Secondly Forbes doesn’t mean s*** once you haves made a certain amount. Leave Forbes to senior citizens like bey Oprah Mariah. You know people that have been in the industry for majority of their life . Bet started way before rihanna did. At that her find were aided by stealing from her flop workers in destiny a child. So don’t compare funds. That’s not even fair.

      • Rihboy March 25, 2015

        Girl she said that 4 wasn’t for the charts because she knew how bad it will flop. Rihanna never made bogus documentaries or videos saying that she does music for number 1s. It just happens that majority of her songs shoot straight to one. Bey had to do damage control after 4. Leaked or not she flopped.

      • Rihboy March 25, 2015

        Don’t forget unapologetic leaked and still outsold! So did talk that talk.

      • Slay_Hive March 25, 2015

        Oooooooo Someone is steaming hot. Somebody pass this b**** a fan and a glass of cold tea!!! I’m glad to know I was on your mind though! 😉
        .
        B**** you need to re-read my comment. When I said she was BeyInspired, I was referring to her new company that is siimilar to Bey’s Parkwood Ent. Which is the truth. I see she’s pressed to be seen as major before her new album flops. Tis all!! She’s making baby steps in becoming a BOSS! *applauds*
        .
        And not you saying Forbes doesn’t matter, When Rihanna hhas been in the game ten years with all these hit singles, albums, endorsements and other “iconic” s*** ya’ll like to brag about and still makes less than Katy Perry!!! Ctfu Of course Forbes doesn’t matter. Let’s just hope Rihanna makes it to be a “senior citizen” like Beyonce in this industry, while still scalping the lil girls she inspired. 😀

      • Slay_Hive March 25, 2015

        No honey 4 wasn’t made for the charts obviously. She even admitted it! While your fave and the other girls were riding trends and Dickriding Top 40 Edm tracks, Bey did the opposite. Still went Platinum, outselling the girl with hits in the U.S. Bey could have easily called on Dr. Luke, calvin Harris Etc. if she was that desperate. Bye!!!

      • Slay_Hive March 25, 2015

        Also don’t forget 4 leaked a month in advance still debuted with over 300k and went platinum. If you consider 4 a flop, what do you consider rated flop, music of the flops and a flop like me????

      • Rihboy March 25, 2015

        I got confused at outsold. She hasn’t outsold anyone. Moreover rihanna definitely sits above Katy on Forbes. Like I said, give defense mechanism is to formulate lies and numbers. So sad. You just made my day cookie. I got to go on that note. You hive members have fun toiling over Rihanna’s success.

    • RihAmerican (hives scared of R8) March 25, 2015

      Lmao Gay_Hive Nobody said anything about 4lop in the first place ugggh Rihboy Why is this troll trying to convince the Navy that 4 was a success??? These fleas and the inflation. It did not outsell TTT and UN WW.Im not here for the tired R&B, not for charts excuse when your f a v is HBIC/king.

    • Rory March 25, 2015

      But Bey doesn’t own her masters yet lol

  12. RihAmerican (hives scared of R8) March 25, 2015

    Winning! Everytime the haters “talk that talk” big things happen for her.I need American Oxygen though.

  13. TheElusiveLamb March 25, 2015

    WOW! I don’t think people realize how important/beneficial owning and even writing your own music is in the long run for any artist. No one can shade Riri for this. Congrats Rihanna.

  14. robyn March 25, 2015

    This move has been long overdue, I’m happy for her. Now she is surelly going to move up the ladder in terms of forbes list etc. Congrats Rih

  15. #JACKIE March 25, 2015

    Who cares FourFlopSeconds still ain’t making no noise

    • datreddone23 March 25, 2015

      Will be multi platinum by the end of the month though when the hell will Ciara?

    • RihAmerican (hives scared of R8) March 25, 2015

      I Bet is whispering down the charts.

    • Rory March 25, 2015

      Since when does a song that peaks in the top 5, and goes platinum in 7 weeks considered a flop??? Lol

    • Arianator Barb March 25, 2015

      LMFAO!!! No you didn’t b****!!!

  16. SMH March 25, 2015

    Typical insecurity from the beyonce fandom. Rihanna one-ups her at yet another major move and the pressed beyonce fans can’t take it. Clearly this woman has more power over beyonce fans than beyonce herself lol. Congrats on a major coup Rihanna.

    • Slay_Hive March 25, 2015

      Oh girl shut up! Don’t act like you and the rest of the Rihtards don’t be all over Bey’s post throwing stale shade. Bye

      • SMH March 25, 2015

        Thanks for proving my point with your little insecure rant.

      • Slay_Hive March 25, 2015

        Lmaoo Insecure rant? No hun, I only stated a fact. You can play innocent and stupid if you choose though. 😉

      • SMH March 25, 2015

        And the insecurities continue. Everyone can tell how pressed you are by all the novels you have throughout this post.

      • Slay_Hive March 25, 2015

        B**** I am far from pressed. I was only replying to novels. Why are you always so concerned with what the hive is doing anyway? B**** stop fronting like you’re not pressed with Bey. Stfu

    • Kyle March 25, 2015

      DEATH at you calling anyone insecure when you have to troll as two people (LOL and SMH) in an attempt to come for Beyonce fans all the time. What is it about Bey that has so you pressed?

      • Skyfall March 25, 2015

        B**** why are still on this site?

      • SMH March 25, 2015

        Yet you were insecure enough to respond to my comment.

  17. LOL March 25, 2015

    LOL WHEN WILL SLAVEYONCE? LOL
    OH THAT’S RIGHT, NEVER. CUZ JAY Z’S SHACKLES ARE FOREVER ATTACHED TO HER THROAT LOL

    #THATRIHANNAREIGN

    • Slay_Hive March 25, 2015

      But BOSSonce makes waaay more money than Foreheadanna and is just as rich as her husband, on her own. Stfu

  18. Gee March 25, 2015

    I like when I see some1 making big moves to better themselves congratulations to Rihanna on another major move/accomplishment.

  19. Arianator Barb March 25, 2015

    That’s cool I guess. All these b****** got money out the @ss anyway. I’m still waiting on her to give me something to pop my pu$$y to when I’m on the pole.

  20. Mark111 March 25, 2015

    Owning your masters is huge. Only a few have that and most are greats, like Prince, MJ, Janet, Jay Z, LL Cool J and MC. Her peers aren’t even on this level, even Beyoncé isn’t, yet at least. If she can sell like she did with Def Jam, she’ll have more money than Beyonce at a faster time. Queen of Pop, yes I said it, she’ll be the highest selling female artist in the next ten years.

  21. Mark111 March 25, 2015

    While everyone was flopping and slaving away on tours thinking Rihanna was afraid of them, this woman was making moves. 2015 is her year!

    • Kyle March 25, 2015

      Lol we’re almost 4 months in and it still hasnt taken off.

      • Mark111 March 25, 2015

        Her movie is about to blow up and her single is still top 5. What are you talking about?

      • Kyle March 25, 2015

        Top 5? I thought you said it would be her 14th #1?

      • Mark111 March 25, 2015

        Well have you seen the other top 4? Those are great songs as well. My notget to #1, but a hit I a hit. How your fave doing?

      • Kyle March 25, 2015

        But anything less than #1 was not hit. Well at least thats all you people were implying this time last year. But the double standards are cute. Oh my faves doing fine, enjoying her family empire and life, something Rihs clearly being inspired by this era.

      • Mark111 March 25, 2015

        You’re mad. Anything that sits in the top twn for weeks is a major hit. You all said that the song would flop, so who’s more wrong? Me saying that it’ll be #1 and it ends up in the top 5 for weeks or you Bey-Holez that said it would flop, even tho it just went platinum? Have a seat, you’re making a fook out of this troll account.

      • Kyle March 25, 2015

        Why would I be mad at this underperformance? Us ‘Bey-Holes’ were the ones schooling you navy bottoms on what a hit was last year with your ‘no #1 = No Hit’ small minded logic. Now Rihfund failed to get #1 you want be open minded. #SitDown

      • Mark111 March 25, 2015

        B1tch please. The subject was her making moves and you said she was failing. Where’s this Beyonce crap coming from? Lol, vent on your own time, not mine. Uptown Funk is the jam, Thinking Out Loud is great, Surgar got up from streams, Love Me Likr You Do is getting great buzzed. Drunk Ho3 was blocked by Katy Perry, sit! I’m not your councilor, get help, lol.

      • Kyle March 25, 2015

        And your stupid ass could not praise your stupid fave without throwing that wack ass Beyonce shade. She is the standard for everything. Don’t start if you don’t want to be finished off. And you still have yet to deny that anything i’ve said is anything less than the truth. Now sit the f**** down and stay mad that FFS was blocked by more than one lesser artist song. And you’re the only one who needs help. Help with that atrocious spelling and vocab. It’s COUNSELLOR… Fail.

      • Mark111 March 25, 2015

        “While everyone was flopping and slaving away on tours thinking Rihanna was afraid of them, this woman was making moves. 2015 is her year!”
        .
        Where did you see Beyoncé? Lol, you gone mad and is upset. Hahahajajaja

      • Kyle March 25, 2015

        What was the point in copying the quote? Its called shade. And even the dumbest person can detect it, even when it is wack like that. Im not mad. But you will be if this era doesn’t take off more than the last one. #FingersCrossed.

      • Brian310 March 25, 2015

        How are you going to try and correct Mark on his spelling when you misspelled the word yourself lmao…its counselor

      • Mark111 March 25, 2015

        One thing I know is that the Bey Holez knows nothing about shade. I recall Katy, Britney, Miley, Gags and a ton of others dropping albums and touring. Somehow you only got Beyoncé out of it. Well if the shoe fits hooker. Talk about insecurity. Lol
        .
        Better ask what Beyonce is going to do next, cause no new label is going to invest in a 40 year old with no hits. 🙂

      • Kyle March 25, 2015

        Dumbass^ How are you going to interject yourself when you can’t even come correct? There are two alternative spellings smfh.

      • Kyle March 25, 2015

        Beyonce is included in that wack attempt at shade no matter what spin you put on it, no matter how many artists you include. And you said that during the 4 era, yet she came back and blew you all out of the water. No hits and yet Drunk In Love charted higher than FFS and is 3x, which is exactly what I mean with your double standards. Carry on 😀

      • Mark111 March 25, 2015

        Does Beyonce own her masters? No, then why are we talking about her? Well not me, you. What a lessor, better call Matthew and feed for little brother and sister (that turned out prettier than Blue Z) #oops lol

      • Kyle March 25, 2015

        Yawn! Just hurry up and get Rihanna to the Top of the Hot 100 thats all you’re good at and stop worrying about others who sell and top Forbes without it ok?

    my comment was meant to be sarcastic.
    @guess your problem start and ends with comparing rihanna to beyonce. Why do it? Rihanna is worth 100mil thats alot by any standard, why must you compare her to the one person making above the norm?

  23. blue March 25, 2015

    im curious to know how much money bey actually makes from music alone? Cause i understand her fans bringing up her networth on a rihanna post like this one, but this is about rihanna making money off her music not endorsements.

    • Mark111 March 25, 2015

      Beyoncé makes alot because her name is on those records and on DC’s records. Rihanna will get there, but congrats to both.

    • Kyle March 25, 2015

      A lot. She don’t put her name on the credits for fun or even for acclaim dumbass. Its all business.

  24. #JACKIE March 25, 2015

    Lol the G**** acting like her endeavors aren’t huge flops this year

  25. Kyle March 25, 2015

    She should be so thankful to Mr Carter abd Roc Nation. Def Jam would never.

  26. James March 25, 2015

    Rihanna owns her master but Queen Bey doesn’t? Kiiiiiiii

  27. B2B March 25, 2015

    That’s very impressive, I’m pretty sure this will have something to do with Jay’s new streaming service very soon. No shade but they categorized her as everything except a singer/song writer.

  28. rihicon March 25, 2015

    wow this is a huge move. I’m liking the direction rih is taking this year. r8 is shaping up to slay lives

  29. bria March 25, 2015

    Is beyonce still trying to book gigs ssinging precious lord or naw

    Backstabber bey aint nothing to play with, her backstabbing game is FIERCE chile!

  30. FutureCIARA March 25, 2015

    For a tacky little girl from the slums of an island, She sure is making some educated moves now, Considering she almost went bankrupt not too long ago. Apparently money can buy you brains….

    LOL, In all seriousness, congrats to her team pushing all these strategic moves and endeavors. Rihanna should be thankful, And I wonder what her future will look like 5-10 years from now….
    Only time will tell

    • Mark111 March 25, 2015

      Lol, you type as if you don’t stan for Clara. How will Caesar feed her little b****** child when she can’t sell singles or albums? Hahahahahaha

      • FutureCIARA March 25, 2015

        How will Aaliyah support her family when she is dead?

    • sashay March 25, 2015

      But she went to a reputable school and had a good education on that little island…Ya’ll stay thinking that Rihanna is an idiot.

      Anyhow good move Rih. not just looking at the now but securing her future.

  31. bria March 25, 2015

    Most will never face the obvious, rihanna is that bitxh that aint narn nobody fuzing with right now, nobody is doing what she is.

    She is strong and sincere and all she needs to do is keep doing HER as the others watch and learn

    Love that boss chick fly chick

  32. Gina March 25, 2015

    Fairly new to this site but I just must say I will never understand why the Hive and Navy are always at each others necks! I mean just give props when they are due to both these black successful women! I’m definitely part of the hive but I don’t do the hating. Good for Rih and this doesn’t take away any success from Bey!

  33. Skyfall March 25, 2015

    This is a huge achievement, Rihanna is looking for out for her family and future. Not everyone will be like Madonna who can still slay and tour in their 70s. Not saying Rihanna can’t but some people just don’t care to do it but simple taking their money and chill. Rihanna will make money off her music for the rest of her life, and I’m here for it.

  34. Skyfall March 25, 2015

    Why is Slay_Hive still saying 4 was R&B? The album was more pop than 21. I mean it’s still Beyonces best album but quit trying to come up with excuses of why it underperformed.

    • Slay_Hive March 25, 2015

      You sound stupid. With songs like Party, countdown, Btinh, end of time, love on top,1+1, I care was more Pop than 21?! Are you serious? Lol 4 was even named the best selling R&B album of 2011. Byyye!

  35. Grande the Way March 25, 2015

    Congrats to Rihanna! That’s pretty major!

    • #JACKIE March 25, 2015

      When will SLUTriana BLANDe?

      • Skyfall March 25, 2015

        When will Heara?

      • Grande the Way March 25, 2015

        What’s wrong? The Navy isn’t giving you enough attention? Sorry sis, but I don’t feed trolls. Bye now!

  36. kingbeybitch March 25, 2015

    Beyonce done own her s*** to

  37. Selenator March 25, 2015

    Slay Rih! This is a smart move long term, especially when she’s always dropping an album.

  38. kingbeybitch March 25, 2015

    Idk why tlthe Navy had to bring Beyonce into to this talking “About when will Beyonce”. Like do y’all think her deal with Warner was for nothing Lool she owns the right to her music

  39. bria March 25, 2015

    Lies and delusion its a shame that you all sacrifice your sanity and integrity to prop bey up

    She has been proppwd up her whole life so her fans know the.deal….prop her up no matter what if it means lying, stealing, denying

    Beyonce and her brand have been sooooo toxic ans odcourse jays has

    • kingbeybitch March 25, 2015

      girl look it up *Madonna’s voice*

  40. bria March 25, 2015

    And a real set back for humanity with the teaching of idol worship, that’s some dark ages mess

    If they are never seen or heard from, the world will be a better place

  41. kingbeybitch March 25, 2015

    Navy was on twitter asking what does it mean by “own her masters” lmaooooooo -______-

  42. bria March 25, 2015

    Well at least they asked that is a sign of intellgence to ask if you dont know s p somethinh

    Bey and jay high school drop behinds, aint seem nobody’s calculus class, etc got ypi fools thinking they know somethibg when all theu know how to do is poison thier own community for a buckand made up headlines

    Im living in My house that i own, not rrenting and lying that imma billionaire

    And her poor foolish uneducated hive lap it up

  43. LOL March 25, 2015

    LOL THE BEDBUGS ARE BUTTHURT CUZ QUEEN RIRI IS HER OWN WOMAN WHILE HOOKERYONCE STILL HAS TO ANSWER TO HER PIMP LOL

  44. Rosebud (Natalie La Rose Stan) March 25, 2015

    Rihanna is making major moves! This move before R8 was well scouted

  45. ENOUGH ONIKA March 25, 2015

    I’ll be more impressed when she “masters” her vocals. But congrats to her none the less..

  46. Royalkev March 25, 2015

    Nice! I’m glad Rihanna is able have control of what she’s producing. This is what so many artists fight for and apparently it’s a new day! I hope to see more of this!
