    Sounds Kanye produced. Doesn’t seem to fit her.

    • Lana Del Fan *I Can Hear The Sirens* March 5, 2015

      This sounds like Drunk in Love the Jazz throwback edition

    • rosy March 5, 2015

      Signing with stupid rock nation have sent rih career in the toilet why did she leave her last record company Jay z is a mess it’s about his pocket and using her the fact she has dum dum Kanye doing her music I can’t even

      • Auntie March 5, 2015

        Something is off about this execution. The music is okay, not great. It’s left of center, but in a bad way. If you shoot left of center you need Lorde…Lana…Sia…early Kelis. This is kanye foolery!

    • Al March 5, 2015

      Fukin awful well I thought Rihanna would be unstoppable and her decline would never come until now. All this screeching girl u best saved them coins her music ain’t fitting into today nieche end of

    • You tried March 6, 2015

      Sounds like a good PRODUCTION AND MELODY ABD ARRANGEMENT BUT RIHANNAS VOICE IS NOT FITTING IT! I think they are purposely trying give ROUGH VOCALS sound lol but it just sounds like “ROUGHVOCALS” THIS BELTING ABD RASPY SOUNDS SHES TRYING TO GIVE IS ACTUALLY MEANT FOR THE REAL “RASPY” VOCALIST LMAO SINGERS ARENT THE SAME ANYMORE RIHANNA IS DEFINITELY FORCING IT BUT THE WORLD WILL STILL LOVE LOL IM NOT A FAN BUT THIS GIRL SEEMS TO WIN SO O WEL

      • Al March 6, 2015

        She sounds like someone is stamping on her throat making C-bola sound like Mariahs hayday

  2. Molly March 5, 2015

    Screaming she’s obviously trying to get some type of critical acclaim. Outta all 4 new songs Towards the sun is easily the best the rest are disappointing.

    • Rated R March 5, 2015

      Coming from a Ciara fan whose whole discography is disappointing since her debut .

    “Being the fair and unbiased outlet we are, we must say…this sounds promising…for now” – Sam (TGJ)
    Really? Hehehe!

    I like the classical feels of the song still need to hear more but I hear potential.

  4. (Rihyonce) March 5, 2015

    WHERE IS THE ALBUM RIH YOU MAKING ME MAD!

  5. Hur March 5, 2015

    Honestly, I hate her “New Sound”

    • Gina March 5, 2015

      Because it’s not really her.

    • RCi March 5, 2015

      I don’t like this sound either… Im not even a Rihanna fan but she NEEDS to dump Kanye as executive producer. Rihanna is best at making songs that sound great on radio not this mess.

  6. Cough Cough March 5, 2015

    Those high notes are terrible, you can hear it all in her throat- she’s a smoker. I commend her for trying to try and take the “quality over quantity” route but let’s be real she doesn’t have the voice to pull off an album full of quality nor has she built her name on quality. She makes trendy music and is one of the lead acts in music because of her trendy music. Not organic raw ish. Where’s the workout songs Rihanna we are all waiting for something gooooood!

    • ~The Arcade~ March 5, 2015

      Exactly, what’s up with these melodramatic songs… its borderline depressing.

  7. Kitty March 5, 2015

    Poor thing is so desperate to be seen as an artiste but can’t even write her own songs. Whitney was exceptionally good singer but what is Rihanna exceptionally good at.

    • Skyfall March 5, 2015

      Keeping you pressed

    • I don’t Stan March 5, 2015

      Keeping her legs open for a long periodically time.

      • (Rihyonce) March 5, 2015

        yea you were obviously between her legs so you know ki ki !!

      • Faf March 6, 2015

        Ooooppppp
        “The pusseeee is NASTEA”

  8. FutureCIARA March 5, 2015

    A Mess…… 473289146782167432 samples before the album.

    • caribbean native March 5, 2015

      Meanwhile ciara still got male genitals…….but no one here is fronting…. sit sis…..!

  9. Gina March 5, 2015

    The struggle for authenticity is real.

  10. #JACKIE March 5, 2015

    Fake Amy Winehouse!!! She is Garbage with no talent! I can’t wait for her to FLOP So I can dragggg the Nazi

    • (Rihyonce) March 5, 2015

      kiki only person getting dragged is ciara the thing you fail to realize is no one liked umbrella but it made an impact the same way people later on judged diamonds and it went somewhere have several seats rihanna has had more success than ciara will ever see..
      lol DEATHH!!

    • Skyfall March 5, 2015

      Ciara = fake Janet & Aaliyah with half the talent

  11. Rihyeezy March 5, 2015

    It WILL slay. And Ciara fans will have to deal

    • #JACKIE March 5, 2015

      You so pressed Sis!! Worry about FL(hO)P(me) and #FLOP8

      • (Rihyonce) March 5, 2015

        worry about I bet
        four five seconds is #6
        where I bet?!!

  12. The Beysus Impact March 5, 2015

    LOL LOL AND MORE LOL!!! Is she tryna steal the identity of old musical films stars now??? This isn’t the 1930’s!!! You ain’t no Judy Garland!!!

  13. Cough Cough March 5, 2015

    And let’s not even talk about the messy attempt to perform this live. Lmfao. She will hit that one low a*** “high” note she has in her repertoire.. You know that same one she does in Diamonds… stay.. Umbrella.. Lol

    • The Bajan Princess March 5, 2015

      Y’all said the same about FFS and she slayed that. I’m sure she will continue to put egg on y’all faces this era.

      • Guess March 5, 2015

        ffs was one of, if not rihanna’s best performance. We all thought it was so good because we have such low expectations for her. None of rihanna’s songs require any impressive vocal ability. So her sounding decent in ffs is not a slay. The fact that she’s been a professional “singer” for a decade and THAT Was her Best is pathetic.

  14. BeyIsKing March 5, 2015

    This sounds too Kanye-esque. I don’t see their partnership working at all. It’s all Kanye with Rihanna’s “voice”

  15. Applause March 5, 2015

    Is she serious? Stick to the generic pop songs.

    • Mark111 March 5, 2015

      Oh the irony.

  16. Unbiased March 5, 2015

    This isn’t you Rihanna! This sounds forced, this is the first era where her music isn’t sounding natural. I own Rated R and Loud and she has dabbled with genres. But, idk this time around I think she is under pressure trying to be something she isn’t. Get rid if Kanye girl he giving you these b-side Amy Winehouse tracks.

    • The Bajan Princess March 5, 2015

      But y’all say her “microwave pop music” didn’t sound natural either…and it was generic. Please make up your minds lol. Y’all have heard TWO songs from #R8 and 1 1/2 songs from Home and are already jumping to conclusions lol.

  17. TheElusiveLamb March 5, 2015

    TGJ is far from unbiased, but we can’t complain, bc we come here.
    ____

    I actually like the song already. I don’t know what the Vocal shade is for. No shade (you know I love you LB & Ozzy), but Rihanna is not known for her voice, nor will she ever be. She can’t fit into a powerhouse vocalist (Whitney, Cece Winans, Patti) or a Songbird vocalist (Mariah, Minnie Riperton, Leona), but she does have a cute entertainer voice with an unique tone. She slays. Get over it. #R8!

    • #JACKIE March 5, 2015

      She don’t slay s*** stfu

  18. The Bajan Princess March 5, 2015

    LMAAOOOOO @ the girls flocking to this post! Are y’all that thirsty for new rih music? Home was ALWAYS slated to drop in Nov ’14 with #R8 to follow thereafter! Home was pushed back so naturally #R8 was also but it still had no release date. And what “new sound”? Rih has always played with different genres if you own any of her albums!! Home and #R8 will obviously sound different since one is geared toward children! Keep flocking birds! FFS is in the top five now. Didn’t y’all say it would drop outta the top 20 by now? Keep wishing fuckers!

  19. Eloviano March 5, 2015

    The struggle for “critical acclaim” is real. Got bitchez going 360 degree’s in order to get it. Changing their sounds completely. Imagine if she performs this live, chilee.

    • The Bajan Princess March 5, 2015

      Y’all said the same about FFS and she slayed that. I’m sure she will continue to put egg on y’all faces this era.

      • Adobey March 5, 2015

        That performance was Generic and Forgettable hun. Which is a shame because she made a Beatle look boring.

      • The Bajan Princess March 5, 2015

        So generic and forgettable that it raised her sales and now has her perched in the top 5 on the bb100. Generic and forgettable would be Beyonces soul-less performance. Now Ledisi woulda slayed that!!

      • Unbiased March 5, 2015

        Don’t do it, After Bey’s grammy performance of Drunk In Love..it went number 2. She didn’t have constantly tweet her fans to purchase it either. You talking about Souless

  20. Career Ender March 5, 2015

    Snippetanna

    • Iconic Cici March 5, 2015

      The reminds me of when Beyonce was dropping snippets back in 2013.

      • Tyler March 5, 2015

        BeyInspired.

  21. Iconic Cici March 5, 2015

    The struggle in those vocals are real.

    • The Bajan Princess March 5, 2015

      A Ciara stan should know all about struggle vocals eh? Struggle vocals, struggle relationships, struggle sales….. 🙁

      • #JACKIE March 5, 2015

        Your seething a bit sis. Rihanna has struggle h*****! Ciara is happy something r**** wil never experience

      • FutureCIARA March 5, 2015

        Just like when Rih struggled to get out of Fistopher Browns lambo after catching a nasty upper-cut.

      • The Bajan Princess March 5, 2015

        Oh yeah let’s dwell on a stale 7 year old event. Ya know, kinda like the last time your fav was relevant? Oops nvm FLOPtasy ride bombed in 08.

      • FutureCIARA March 5, 2015

        Hunn that was actually the last time Rih had a hit! A literal HIT! In the fuccing face! Lmfao!

  22. No favs, just here for the music March 5, 2015

    It sounds really raspy. And I know Rihanna can SING (Grammy 2015) I don’t know if this song is right for her voice though, I honestly need to hear more of it before I can judge fairly.

    • Boom Clap (XCX) March 5, 2015

      Rihanna can’t sing.

      • No favs, just here for the music March 5, 2015

        I used to think so too but Grammy 2015 was the first time her voice has ever impressed me. Just my opinion.

  23. Slay_Hive March 5, 2015

    LMAOOO This boring Ass elevator music. Who Does She think She’s Fooling? She Really Wants to flop!

    • The Bajan Princess March 5, 2015

      I knew you’d be here f**. You couldn’t wait to press play. I know ATL f*** like to twerk to mindless music like 7/11, and I’m sure RATCHETanna will have some bops for y’all retarded asses.

      • Tyler March 5, 2015

        “Beyonce” is a critically acclaimed+2x platinum album…So bye! Carry on and get over the fact that Rihanna’s new era isnt bringing to music world to its knees, like you guys were trying to make it seem.

      • Slay_Hive March 5, 2015

        B**** bye. Her Fake Ass Contrived Ratchet Bops Do Nothing For Me Either. She Should Stick To Her Lane. Microwaved Generic Pop Beats That Drown Out Her Weak Horrible Vocals! 🙂

      • Slay_Hive March 5, 2015

        Lmao She Is Beyond Desperate For Critical Acclaim! I’m Just not Feeling The Contrived Sound And Her Attempt At “singing” is ATROCIOUS!! Kii
        .
        Her 10 year Old To 18 year Old Fan Base Won’t Be Here For This Lmaoo

      • The Bajan Princess March 5, 2015

        DEATH @ Tyler trolling!!! I don’t give a flying f*** about Beyonces front loaded ass sales. Her singles ain’t do s*** on the charts. I don’t wanna hear about that “body of work” s***. Obviously people jumped to purchase the surprise album and didn’t give a f*** about the actual music because everything other than DIL belly flopped!!!!!!! All of her songs shoulda been in the top 10!!!

      • Tyler March 5, 2015

        If R8 goes Double Platinum…or even manages to scan 300,000 in its first week get at me. Until then, stay in your lane.
        “Beyonce”>”R8″
        Drunk In Love>FourFiveSeconds

    • Skyfall March 5, 2015

      Your ugly Ass wanna be cookie so bad.

      • Slay_Hive March 5, 2015

        Lmaooo and you want to be Thin And Pretty So bad. Fat oogly Depressed Hating B****!

  24. Boom Clap (XCX) March 5, 2015

    This album is gonna be a hot mess.

    • Skyfall March 5, 2015

      Like Charlie relevancy after Fancy died out?

  25. Stephy. March 5, 2015

    I didn’t like what I herd at all. Her voice sounds ugly. But, I’m keeping hope alive! Rihanna released yo damn single & drop the album already shoot. Why is she all of a sudden so scared of just releasing the damn s***? All these “snippets” is making me irritated. Rihanna NEVER did this… She would always released the damn song & BOOM the album atleast a month later. She doing tew much this era.

    • The Bajan Princess March 5, 2015

      You want her to release a soundtrack, promote the movie and album at the same time?

    • #JACKIE March 5, 2015

      She is SCARED ….. DEATHLY AFRAID and SHOOK! Real talent like Ciara and Ella Henderson are coming. Rihugly is a thing of the past!!!!!

      • The Bajan Princess March 5, 2015

        Ciara? Ella Henderson? Girl go home, you’re drunk!

      • #JACKIE March 5, 2015

        Yes b**** you read correctly! Talent is IN again. Generic smoke & mirrors popstars are so 2010.

    • RihHive March 5, 2015

      Stephy you are so right… Rihanna changing up everything and the fact that she is not predictible this era is what’s driving ppl crazy… meanwhile her fans r enjoying getting her music “little by litte” just like she promised

  26. Tyler March 5, 2015

    She and Taylor Swift should have never switched genres….

    • #JACKIE March 5, 2015

      QUEENylor > R****

  27. Keyshia Cole- ratings queen March 5, 2015

    Her voice will fAll flatter than a witches Titty when she does this live.

  28. Tyler March 5, 2015

    She has no range….uggh!

  29. In love with music March 5, 2015

    I LOVE the melody, but she sounds like is really straining her voice in the second clip. I simply don’t think she has the vocal ability to pull off a song that requires strong vocals.

  30. Eloviano March 5, 2015

    Karma for the Nazi coming for the Hive back in 2011 – 2015. It’s payback time. If she doesn’t go gold in the 1st week with pure sale’s, not streams. BLOOD WILL BE SHED.

  31. Tyler March 5, 2015

    She has no vocal tenacity. That’s why she’s always relied on her and accent and Caribbean pop tone. She’s limited vocally and the fact that she’s a smoker doesnt help….at all.

    • The Bajan Princess March 5, 2015

      Death. How many comments are you gonna leave?

      • Tyler March 5, 2015

        As many as I f****** want….Any questions?

  32. #TeamTinashe Stan (All Hands On Deck Now On iTunes) March 5, 2015

    The #SissySquad are so STEAM PRESSED.
    They’ll make fun of the following such as Aaliyah’s death and Rihanna getting abused due to the fact Sub Zero can’t catch a break in Music or a Man.

    Their about that SEETHING life right now. And just because you are behind a PC doesn’t mean you aren’t being judged by the RULER. Just know that!

    • The Bajan Princess March 5, 2015

      IKR! Death! Those trolls (Jackoff, Thotlly and PastCiara) have some nerve lol

    • #JACKIE March 5, 2015

      Has tuna scanned 30k yet fagget? You stay worrying about the Squad. Redirect that focus to Flopquarius

      • FutureCIARA March 5, 2015

        Exactly, Instead of dedicating 90% of her TGJ comments to Ciara and her fans, Why not start your own fan page and stan for Ciara that way. Like the nerve when Tinashy debut album has been forgotten and shelved and It was just released less than a year ago, producing generic singles and struggling for 30k, or even an iTunes chart….
        FOH

  33. Where’s The Album Bittch March 5, 2015

    Hahahahahahahqhqhqhqhqhq Hahahahahahahqhqhqhqhqhq b**** releases release the music, will ya?? Scaredy ass b****. WHERES THE ALBUM BITTCH.An “ICON” like her doesn’t do snippets. Icons just release the music, regardless whose on the charts. With Adele coming back, she’s gonna be embarrassed when those year end sale’s come in. Haahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha yaaaaaaas.

  34. RihHive March 5, 2015

    YASSSSS! I stan for Higher. This could easily sum up many of my college weekends. I would love this as the beginning on the album like Wait Your Turn on Rater R.

  35. kingbeybitch March 5, 2015

    I’m not a Rihanna fan and trust me I’m not trying to throw shade but idk what’s happening with this era I mean I just don’t know

  36. Mark111 March 5, 2015

    “Being the fair and unbiased outlet we are,”

    Hahahahahahahahaha, the lies.

    I like it, sure the ghetto, 3rd world, under the poverty line living BeyPest and Z-Squad wouldn’t “get” it. Music is moving, Rihanna is always on the NEXT.

    • The Bajan Princess March 5, 2015

      LMAO and the Z Squad is always calling us pressed but look at them lol

  37. Tyler March 5, 2015

    She sounds like she’s repeating my muthafuckin order to me at McDonalds..and Im not lovin it!

    • Mark111 March 5, 2015

      You sound bothered and pissed, lol.

      • Tyler March 5, 2015

        I dont stan for her. Why would I be pissed about the fact that she sounds horrible? lol. You should be pissed tbh.

      • Mark111 March 5, 2015

        “I dont stan for her. Why would I be pissed about the fact that she sounds horrible?”

        Yet you’re leaving comment like: “She has no vocal tenacity. That’s why she’s always relied on her and accent and Caribbean pop tone. She’s limited vocally and the fact that she’s a smoker doesnt help….at all.”

        Pressed, pissed, sour, bothered. lol

      • Tyler March 5, 2015

        Was I lying? NO. She’s not a good vocal technician. She has a small range, hardly any resonance in her voice, and she needs to work on her pitch/vocal control. Do be mad at me.
        Be mad about the fact that she hasnt taken her craft seriously for the past decade, and is probably in her room chain smoking. As opposed habitually attending her vocal lessons.

      • Mark111 March 5, 2015

        If you don’t care and do not stan, then why are you writing J.K Rowling novels on this post? You seem out to prove something with so much anger and passion, yet you claim you don’t care. HAhahahahaha #HeCares

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-dz3XC5nfY

      • Tyler March 5, 2015

        So, the fact that Rihanna has the same vocal capacity as a bag of cats doesnt bother you????

      • Mark111 March 5, 2015

        The subject is you being pissed and bothered, yet trying to act like you’re not. Well SAYING you’re not when your 99 comments says your are.

      • Tyler March 5, 2015

        You’re not mad. Thats the problem. Rihanna could arrive to every single one of her concerts late or literally punch you all in the face with a mic and you’d act like its all good. She’s mediocre, thats why she’ll never be respected as an entertainer #NotMyFault

      • (Rihyonce) March 5, 2015

        @Tyler lol the same logic for beyonce if she does something thats not really good you guys act like its great.. they give it a pass. just because someone has a great voice doesn’t make them great or mean they are entertaining.. I love Beyonce I am just playing devils advocate .. But we have to apply other things to others we can’t just be biased … lol only person i am biased against is Ciara cause the success can’t even compare !! At least Rihanna has some success !!

      • Tyler March 5, 2015

        We are talking about VOCAL TECHNIQUE. At the end of the day, Beyonce’s an exceptional vocal technician and RIHANNA IS NOT. End of story!

      • (Rihyonce) March 5, 2015

        AT THE END OF THE DAY SHE IS NOT WHITNEY HOUSTON AND NEITHER IS BEYONCE . END OF STORY WHY YOU ALWAYS TROLLING WHEN IT COMES TO RIHANNA GIVE CREDIT WHEN CREDIT IS DUE…

  38. Mark111 March 5, 2015

    We’re getting a very personal album. Rated R part 2.

    • #JACKIE March 5, 2015

      Your getting a very FLOP album sis no ones buying

      • Mark111 March 5, 2015

        I’m talking about R8, but Jackoff with a single that failed to land on 95% of the BB Hot 100. #Top4HitTho

      • (Rihyonce) March 5, 2015

        poor Ciara fan lmaoo your fave never even seen the success rihannA and beyonce sees !! so sad !!

  39. What now March 5, 2015

    The hi e just need to stop
    Bey is a fraudulent flop accept it, stop trying to project her reality onto others

    • Tyler March 5, 2015

      Beyonce’s not the one struggling to sing beyond a C note hun. This era might just be a flop. Like Music of the Sun, A Girl Like Me, Rated R, or Talk that Talk…thats what needs to be accepted.

    • (Rihyonce) March 5, 2015

      Beyonce is not a flop and neither is Rihanna !! @Tyler stopp
      lmaoo

  40. Skyfall March 5, 2015

    Not the zsquad in here perched on a Rihanna post instead of being perched on iTunes and purchase I Bet (this song will flop). Ella Henderson is nobody’s threat she is literally irrelevant in the U.S.

    Rihanna isn’t scared to release. I think having the Home movie pushed back f***** up everything. She can’t promote the movie and it’s soundtrack as well as R8 all at once that would be too confusing to Gp

    FFS has already sold over 800k and still selling at a constant rate.

    • #JACKIE March 5, 2015

      Girl stfu and worry about Adelephants fat ass being forgot about

      • Rosie March 5, 2015

        If Adele is forgotten what the f*** is Cedric?

      • #JACKIE March 5, 2015

        Someone who stays on your mind 24/7 clearly!!! B**** Your so f****** pressed!!!

  41. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) March 5, 2015

    This sounds sooooo so good!! I’m so ready!!!

  42. Rosie March 5, 2015

    Why is she trying so hard to get critical acclaim or w/e now? If she and Kanye actually checked Pitchfork and the other blogs they would see that pop music is actually considered “in” now. Like 1989 was one of the most acclaimed albums of 2014 and that was straight up bubblegum pop. They also semi-stan Ariana’s trash ass.

    • #JACKIE March 5, 2015

      Ariana slays that bum b**** in your avi. Stay pressed you filthy raggedy ass d***.

      • Rosie March 5, 2015

        My Jailbait still hasn’t outsold UV worldwide with more promo than Artpop and Prism combined but yes, another artist whose album sold at least 2x more than Cedric’s album sold worldwide in the US alone.

  43. kingbeybitch March 5, 2015

    Lool

  44. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) March 5, 2015

    I’m convinced that this Jackie character is a pressed Beyonce fan hiding behind a Ciara username.

    • #JACKIE March 5, 2015

      And I’m convinced Mariah is a hungry hungry Hippo so I fail to see your point?

    • XXX March 5, 2015

      Jackie is forever dragging Beyonce! That aint no fan.

    Death @ personal Album. This Is A Phony Attempt At Teying To Be taken Seriously! She Better Score An 85 or Higher! 😀

    I Don’t See Her Selling Over 500k First Week With This Mess.

    • Rosie March 5, 2015

      I’m surprised FourFiveHeads isn’t more acclaimed. Critics usually suck Kanye’s d***.
      250K first week max with a Metacritic score in the 70s, maybe.

      • Tyler March 5, 2015

        That’s what Im saying. They usually act like Kanyes music is the muthafuckin Bible lmao.

    • Skyfall March 5, 2015

      What’s wrong with wanting to be taken seriously or to want to change up your sound? You depressed bimbos kill me.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) March 5, 2015

        I agree. If she keeps doing the same thing they’re gonna call her basic and generic, the minute she steps out of her box she’s apparently desperate? Lol don’t pay attention to these fools. They’re only good for twerking to one of ThotYoncé’s Ho anthems.

  46. Skyfall March 5, 2015

    Kinda like how Ciara was forgotten after 2007? How every man she’s been with has ditched and forgot about her after smashing? How her own fans forgot to purchase her music or tour tickets?

    B**** Adele isn’t worried about relevancy or sales. 21 is the best selling album this decade and has outsold every Ciara album in the US alone.

    10 Grammies, Diamond album, MBE Award, Golden globe and Oscar, A husband, critical acclaim, talent… All things C-Never will NEVER have.

  47. Rosie March 5, 2015

    Why is the Z-Squad so mad?
    Has Cedric’s self-titled scanned 200K yet? Even HAIM did.
    Has I Bet (Future Won’t Pay Child Support This Month) outsold West Coast yet?

    • #JACKIE March 5, 2015

      Yes to all of the above d***

    • FutureCIARA March 5, 2015

      Girl your so mad with these old ass recycled reads, How is Llamas joint graveyard tour with Thotliyah?

      • Rosie March 5, 2015

        Lana is touring HUGE amphitheaters with 5 digit capacity this summer while Ciara is booking college pubs in New Zealand and still can’t get more than 100 people to come to her show. Mess.

      • CherylSoldierr March 5, 2015

        But not when you’re using my drags from October! What kind of self drag?!!!

      • Rosie March 5, 2015

        …and Cedric? Has his last album sold 200K? None of you ever answered this.

  48. ohh yeah March 5, 2015

    lot of pressure in it. not sure if this good for her. pushing the limits a lil much. sure just a sample of what we gonna hear. the whole package gonn’ do it. we not there yet. i got time. 🙂

    • #JACKIE March 5, 2015

      One word: FLOPquarius

    • FutureCIARA March 5, 2015

      But where is Tinashy second single “Pretend” and her newest single “All Flops On Deck”….. ???

      LMFAO, No one takes you serious, You have okay comments but dont have s*** to back you up, Tinashy is a FLOP, and she remains Cassie’s lessor!
      Your probably one of these losers on her trolling under several accounts to cling to receipts since Tinashy dont have none!

    • CherylSoldierr March 5, 2015

      Honey why is all flops on deck STILL not bubblin on ANY WW chart?

  50. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) March 5, 2015

    Beyoncé fans are ways the first to judge Rihanna’s music as if Beyoncé doesn’t release a bunch of trash. Lmao she certainly ain’t nobody’s artist either so sit down with the contradictions. *yawns* \_

  51. Mark111 March 5, 2015

    Hahahaha, they went from “She too scare to take a break, her music is generic” to “She’s scared to release music, she’s trying too hard to be critical acclaim.” Hahahahaha, these poor souls. The only thing that is “try hard” is this:

      • XXX March 5, 2015

        But she did not WIN though

      • Tyler March 5, 2015

        Beyonce was NEVER nominated as “Worst Supporting Actress” for a CAMEO APPEARANCE. Rihanna was in the film for only FourFiveSeconds. I cant! lmao.

      • The Bajan Princess March 5, 2015

        Halle Berry won a Razzie so s*** rih is in good company kii. Kinda like how Jennifer DUDson won that Oscar…..

      • Valerie March 5, 2015

        But kiii Halle Berry is an established actress. What does Rihanna have to her name as an actress BESIDES a razzie?

      • Tyler March 5, 2015

        Not for a CAMEO APPEARANCE though. Bwhahaha you mad!

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) March 5, 2015

      *falls into coffin*

      That was tragic. And this contradiction about people not taking Rihanna seriously.

    • #TeamTinashe Stan (All Hands On Deck Now On iTunes) March 5, 2015

      What the hell lol.

  52. Skyfall March 5, 2015

    Tyler I disagree, Rihanna does have range she’s just not a belter. She could of easily used her mixed voice to belt those notes out and to make them sound more fluid instead of trying to use pure chest voice add sounding strainy. You said she can’t go pass a C note, a C what exactly.. C#4 C#5, well whatever you meant you’re wrong her highest note is a D#6.

    • Tyler March 5, 2015

      No, I said that she was struggling to hit beyond a C Note…a C#5 to be exact #ExhibitA

      • Skyfall March 5, 2015

        She can’t belt in pure chest, she needs to learn to use her mixed voice to reach those higher Beatles notes without sounding like she’s straining.

      • Tyler March 5, 2015

        Yeah…she does. Its already been established that she’s a lack luster vocal technician. What else is new?

  53. XXX March 5, 2015

    Damn you guys are dragging her. But the song and vocals are tragic and the navy knows it.

  54. Tyler March 5, 2015

    Rihanna needs to stick to her catchy bubble gum pop tracks, and stop trying to pick up Taylor Swifts flushed persona out of the toilet #SoundsAwful.

    • The Bajan Princess March 5, 2015

      Hours later and you’re still commenting lls. What a boring life you must lead. And her music sounds nothing like Taylor’s….NOTHING! Shut up and get a life.

      • Tyler March 5, 2015

        Ummmmmm, I dont ever recall Sam hiring you as the TGJ Police. So feel free to shut the f*** up and exit to the left!

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) March 5, 2015

  56. Prismatic Returns March 5, 2015

    The deflections in this post by the nazi. After the Grammy’s FFS should have gone to number one. I mean you got Kanye and a f****** Beatle. That Alison Krauss rihject couldn’t even go to number 2 with all those twitter links. Her 2nd single and this won’t make any noise on the charts. She’s just confusing her fans. If she keeps this up, her 10 – 25 year old stan base will jump ship(pun intended). Say what you will about Katy, but she knows her target market and caters for it well.

    • The Bajan Princess March 5, 2015

      Give it up GAY_Hive. You ain’t no Katy Cat kii

  57. Valerie March 5, 2015

    LOL at people bringing Beyonces album into it when that got praised by everyone as a body of work. Don’t be upset because this new music sounds like a bunch of Kanye rejects with strained vocals all over it. She needs to find herself if she wants be taken the slightest bit seriously. And this type of music is not for her voice. #SorryNotSorry

  58. Linda March 5, 2015

    For someone of Rihanna’s caliber. Her return to the music industry has been for lack of a better word, underwhelming, disappointing I might add. Her lead single should have easily topped the hot 100. She even has Kanye and Paul on the track, performed on the Grammy’s, countless twitter, IG links. There are no excuses why it’s performing the way it is on the charts. There is no buzz around her return except for her die hard fan’s.

    • FutureCIARA March 5, 2015

      #facts

    • The Bajan Princess March 5, 2015

      Only her die hard fans? If that’s the case then why hasn’t the single left the top 10 bb100? Why has it been perched in the top 5 on iTunes for weeks? The only thing that slowed her down was streaming. It didn’t become available for streaming until last week!

      • FutureCIARA March 5, 2015

    Where is Whut, Rodriguez, LB, Lacefronce?? Them b****** are forever perched on a Beyonce post. Yet they’re ducking and diving on their faves post like Rihanna on the charts. It’s safe to say, Rihanna is FLOPPING. Why isn’t FFS number 1??? Where is Flopping Towards The Sun on the charts???

    • #JACKIE March 5, 2015

      • CherylSoldierr March 5, 2015

        She’s psychotic or something. Ask her to provide a receipt or something. She’s really mad that I deactivated lmao

      • FutureCIARA March 5, 2015

        Im not mad one bit, especially at you deactivating, That just makes you petty as hell. But your just fake and got mad over the dumbest thing, Im not bringing that drama to TGJ though, That was weeks ago, and im really over it. So drop it

      • CherylSoldierr March 5, 2015

        lmao see? not one receipt to being “fake.” it really is psychotic and obsessed. and i NEVER even mentioned it once lol

  66. metzo March 5, 2015

    I’m not gonna lie. Rihanna has a cute unique voice. But she doesn’t have range. I like the fact that she’s dumping the edm/generic for the critical acclaim. N i was waiting for her to do this, But clearly, it doesn’t suit her at all. Her voice is too struggly when she tries to hit those high note and you can hear it from her throat (screechy) n no its not raspiness. Oh well, she should just stick to we found love umbrella typa music cause this is a struggling mess giving me DIL/ Amy Winehouse teas. Lol

    • kingbeybitch March 5, 2015

      I think she’s just trying to hard

    • FutureCIARA March 5, 2015

      Shes really reaching with those pressurized vocals.

      • BEYINSPIRED March 5, 2015

        Sorry but you stan for Ciara lol. That “high note” she attempted in I Bet was pure hilarity.

      • FutureCIARA March 5, 2015

        Miss thing… That hig note in the I Bet acoustic video slayed any note Rih ever attempted.. So STOP with the deluded opinion. Ciaras vocals have improved so much, Whil Rih is putting pressure on her voice to hit notes out of her reach, sounding like Eartha Kitt!

      • Queen Of Trip Hop March 6, 2015

        Ciara has NEVER had a good vocal showing so idk where you and the rest of her fans came up with this delusion that her acoustic performance was great when all it showed is that she needs to stick to bathroom stalls because that was the only time her vocals were cute.

  67. kingbeybitch March 5, 2015

    The funny part would be if this album actually has more POP songs than these other songs she’s releasing

  68. Tyler March 5, 2015

    The songs called “Higher” yet, she’s struggling to hit the high notes. Oh, the irony!

I remember she posted a snippet of “ain’t none of this s*** promised” on IG which was very club ready. Also, did someone mention Amy Winehouse? Let’s not….

    • CherylSoldierr March 5, 2015

      It’s probably another african posing as a mexican to get some of that first world relevance

  91. Blue Ivy Rod (fourfivesecondsofSeethin) March 5, 2015

    What I want to know is why this post has reached over 230 comments and it’s filled with wasps?

    Question of the day who charted higher

    Pretty Hurts or I Bet?

  92. Blue Ivy Rod (fourfivesecondsofSeethin) March 5, 2015

    What I want to know is why this post has reached over 230 comments and it’s filled with wasps?

    Question of the day which song charted higher

    Pretty Hurts or I Bet?

    • Keri Qween March 5, 2015

      Kiii I guess the h/I/v is done harassing Kid Rock now they’re back trolling tgj

      And death Pretty Hurts is clearly the biggest flop of the two it never entered the Hot 100

      At least Cedric made it into the 90s on the chart kiiiii

      • Blue Ivy Rod (fourfivesecondsofSeethin) March 5, 2015

        How can you be queen but get outdone by some z list rappers 5th baby mama?

  93. Blue Ivy Rod (fourfivesecondsofSeethin) March 5, 2015

    This post is a mess… Don’t yall have work or school? I mean you cannot just sit at home and stalk rihanna posts

    • CherylSoldierr March 5, 2015

      Coming from a f** who got exposed for trolling months back & uses “fart” as a drag. Have a seat sis.

  94. Naomi March 5, 2015

    Back to the drawing board Rih! Remember when her fans were calling Bey snippetyonce though?

  95. Blue Ivy Rod (fourfivesecondsofSeethin) March 5, 2015

    One troll down, 7 plus malaria_Hive to go

  96. Tyler March 5, 2015

    Well… I guess The Navy should start the R9 anticipation. 10 months shouldn’t be too long bwahahahaha.

  97. Blue Ivy Rod (fourfivesecondsofSeethin) March 5, 2015

    I’m glad to see Rih has so many fans. Even has the hive and Future’sMistake Stans coming out showing their love and spending time to bow down to the supreme.

  98. Naomi March 5, 2015

    Remeber when they said when will Beyonce have another Top 10? And then Four Five seconds didn’t even outchart Drunk In Love with payola and grammys.

    • Blue Ivy Rod (fourfivesecondsofSeethin) March 5, 2015

      Remember when Pretty hurts topped the hot 100?

      • LB March 5, 2015

        I don’t remember that time LMAO

      • Naomi March 5, 2015

        Keep clinging to the award winning pretty hurts. Doesn’t change the fact your fave is a lacklustre mess this era.

      • LB March 5, 2015

        But my favs luckluster ballads actually sell. Diamonds > Pretty hurts, Stay > any ballad off of 4closure and Beyonce, oh and luckluster 4.5 seconds has outsold “amazing” state of the art critical acclaimed mozart classic level 7/11, oh and is about to outsell Drunk in love which charted off of views.

        Rihanna’s luckluster music is doing better than Bey with over 150 million records sold..hmmmmmm, want some honey to go with that tea?

      • Naomi March 5, 2015

        Hun save the novels. Listen and Halo>>>>>> Any Rihanna ballad.

      • Blue Ivy Rod (fourfivesecondsofSeethin) March 5, 2015

        In addition rihannas last three singles have pretty much outsold every single off of 4- Beyonce and she didn’t have to take off her clothes or show her Pum pum to the Grammy audience to get her acclaim.

      • LB March 5, 2015

        LMAO Was Halo #1 for three weeks like Diamonds?

      • Naomi March 5, 2015

        But why couldn’t she outchart Drunk In Love with payola?

      • Tyler March 5, 2015

        You better hope that those last 3 singles, help R8 outsell Beyonce because you’ll be dragged otherwise.

      • LB March 5, 2015

        LMAO Let’s talk about 4.5 seconds being 500K copies away from outselling Drunk in love, in barely a month.

        Let’s talk about Drunk in love failing to outchart Diamonds which was #1 for three weeks.

      • Tyler March 5, 2015

        No, lets talk about Unapologet not being able to outsell a surprise release like Beyonce. Despite the fact, that it had a #1 single i.e. Diamonds to back it up….

      • LB March 5, 2015

        LMAO that’s because Unapologetic didn’t need a GIMMICK to sell about the same numbers Beyonce has currently sold worldwide.

        I mean Beyonce needed a re-release and that still hasn’t leaped her forward compared to Unapologetic. The spread is very thin.

        Remember how Beyonce was struggling with 4closure? Ya, explains why she needed a gimmick to spark interest, it was cute.

      • Tyler March 5, 2015

        What gimmick? People release surprise albums all the time and FLOP. Beyonce on the other had was the FIRST MAJOR SUCCESS.
        Haha So save it! 1+1 still equals 2, an “A+” is an “A+”, and a 10 is still a 10.
        Overall, Beyonce received way more commercial success+critical acclaim than Unapologetic. “4” might have been a flop but Beyonce started a SURPRISE ALBUM PHENOM.

        She slayed with this era just like she did during DIL, Bday, and I Am.
        Beyonce>Unaflop #SorryNotSorry

      • LB March 5, 2015

        She only outsold Unapologetic because she needed a gimmick to revamp interest in her music, remember 4closure was flipping and flopping left, right and center. If she didn’t rely on the gimmick, she would be back to where she started.

        And even after the gimmick and re-release, Beyonce has not outsold Unapologetic by a wide margin.

      • Tyler March 5, 2015

        ON AVERAGE Beyonce’s albums ALWAYS sell more than Rihanna’s. She has one “flop” to her name and that would be 4. As opposed to Rihanna who has Music of the Flop, A Flop Like Me, Rated Flop, Flop that Flop, and Unaflopogetic. So you can miss me with that gimmick bs.
        Idc if it outsold it by a small margin or not. Beyonce still outsold Unapologetic. Despite the fact that that damn album was two years older. Bottom Line!

  99. LB March 5, 2015

    Nice, loving it. Better than the trash that is out on urban radio, I mean what the hell is truffle butter or 7/11 garbage.

    This is real quality music, go Rih.

    • Keri Qween March 5, 2015

      Kiii at fourfive outselling ratchet/11 in a month

      • LB March 5, 2015

        The real kiii is it’s about to outsell Drunk in love. 4.5 seconds hit 900K this week

      • Naomi March 5, 2015

        And is still tumbling down the charts.

      • LB March 5, 2015

        How is it tumbling down the charts when it moved up this week and is 500K copies away from outselling Drunk in love (which charted off of views) in close to a month?

      • Naomi March 5, 2015

        Has it outcharted DIL yet? Funny you’re saying that wasn’t a hit so what does that make FFS?

      • Tyler March 5, 2015

        You know what she means by “tumbling down the charts” considering the fact, that Rihannas past 6 albums have tumbled down that charts after losing steam quickly.

      • LB March 5, 2015

        But Drunk in love has not outcharted Diamonds, what’s your point?

        And how is it tumbling down the charts when it moved up a spot this week and is 500K away from outselling Drunk in love (which needed views to chart) in a month?

        Logic is hard to come by with the hive I guess.

      • Tyler March 5, 2015

        Rihanna’s a single’s artist….so why didnt her lead SINGLE out chart Beyonce’s?

      • CherylSoldierr March 5, 2015

        It moved up because of streaming, not sales f**. Its sales run is basically done. Not your hypocritical a$$ trying DIL for streaming when that’s the only way 45heads is moving up the charts.

  100. Molly March 5, 2015

    Hollering at these obsessive Ciara stans in hiding you b!tches sure love to mention Ciaras name yet you claim no ones checking for her hmmm. Oh and Rosie b**** you have really been trying it with Ciara lately #NotCool C squad doesn’t even come for Lana like that anymore.

    • Blue Ivy Rod (fourfivesecondsofSeethin) March 5, 2015

      No one is checking for Ciara, it’s Cedric.

  101. Naomi March 5, 2015

    Pretty Hurts didn’t even enter the Hot 100 yet it has more accolades than Diamonds #WhyIsThat? *Beyonce voice*

    • Tyler March 5, 2015

      BAM! with a drop of BLOOP! BLOOP!

    • LB March 5, 2015

      Honey let’s talk about what the public thought,

      Diamonds – #1 for three weeks
      Pretty Hurts – Not Applicable

      The public voted with their wallet and there is their verdict.

      • Tyler March 5, 2015

        Beyonce – Critically Acclaimed+Double Platinum
        Unapologetic – None of the above.

      • LB March 5, 2015

        But Beyonce was paid dust worldwide, which is why Unapologetic’s worldwide figures > Beyonce

      • LB March 5, 2015

        minus US of course.

      • Tyler March 5, 2015

        Unapologetic was released TWO YEARS PRIOR and Beyonce was still more of a commercial success.
        Beyonce>Unaflop

      • Naomi March 5, 2015

        But unapoloegtic only sold 1 million more than Beyonce ww with all that extensive european promo. Come back with something more impressive.

      • LB March 5, 2015

        Didn’t Beyonce run out of steam halfway through that she had to rely on a re-release (as usual) to spark interest.

        I mean Beyonce is not doing Taylor Swift numbers, it is selling about as much as Unapologetic has sold, what’s impressive about that?

        Well at least it has done better than 4closure, I’ll give her that.

      • Naomi March 5, 2015

        The re relase made no difference to her sales. You said she ran out of steam when she first crossed 3 million and then she went on to outsell unapologetic.

      • LB March 5, 2015

        But what is the spread between Beyonce and Unapologetic? Not much, even after the re-release and the gimmick.

      • Tyler March 5, 2015

        What gimmick????? Your fave HAD A #1 SINGLE and her album still couldnt even outsell an album that was released 2 years after. I cant!!!! lmao

      • Naomi March 5, 2015

        Outselling it. Thats the spread. Remember when you also said she wouldn’t?

      • LB March 5, 2015

        You can’t even bring up the spread because you know it is small, even after a re-release. So you’re acting like Beyonce is some Taylor Swift type selling album when it has sold just about as much as Unapologetic LMAO

      • Tyler March 5, 2015

        No, we are talking about BEYONCE AND RIHANNA. I SAID that “Beyonce” outsold “Unapologetic”. Kind of like how The Mrs. Carter Show outgrossed The Diamonds Tour. Beyonce’s past era slayed Rihanna’s.

      • Naomi March 5, 2015

        All I know is Beyonce outsold Rihanna. And you will deal with it. You love to chop and change with every read. First it was shes scared to release, then she done the risky thing in her career, then she won’t get a Top 10, now its anything less than #1 is not a hit, then its she won’t outsell Unapologetic, now its whats the spread. Just deal with it you get clocked every time.

  102. #TeamTinashe Stan (All Hands On Deck Now On iTunes) March 5, 2015

    @CherylSoldierr’s RACIST and IGNORANT comment:
    “Screaming at the shitneyraycarey/istanforflops exposure! I have a feeling that Tinashestan is also a troll w/ her excessive use of flop hashtags. she gives me “i learned english in africa” teas.”

    What is that suppose to mean? So there isn’t people that can’t speak English in Africa?

    And you say I’M a TROLL by saying I use “#” a lot? THE REACH hehe. Is that all? And just to be clear I always say “HASHTAG” before I put out my Hashtag statement.
    You are trying way too hard to get people to talk about Scary H** on here. You are the only one boo boo 🙂
    HASHTAG #IamLIVING #NotYouGettingRacistNow

    • CherylSoldierr March 5, 2015

      What was racist hun? English is not a first language for the vast majority of Africans. You give either english language learner or dumbass native english speaker with how you write. That must be how you know so much about these ESL classes.

  103. Naomi March 5, 2015

    Remember when they said Rihanna does not need payola and mocked Katy for 40 days and nights. And then IHeartRadio exposed her a few weeks ago.

    • LB March 5, 2015

      Didn’t Sony have to pay a fine for using Payola to get Jennifer Lopez, Justin Timberlake and Beyonce’s singles to chart??

      Explains why she hasn’t had a hit in oh I don’t know, 6 years

      • Naomi March 5, 2015

        Lool you stay perched in my reply section though. Am I hitting a nerve boo? I can recall you were the one saying Rihanna ‘does not need payola’ especially. The Hive said nothing. And Beyonce had a hit this era, and her hit lasted longer than Four Five Seconds of Payola.

      • LB March 5, 2015

        LMAO what hit?? Her last hit was Local ladies, she hasn’t had a hit since then. Come on now. Rihanna has had iron clad hits, worldwide block buster hits with 13 #1s and over 150 million records sold.

        And please, do you need me to pull out the settlement Sony paid for payola?

      • LB March 5, 2015

        The state investigation found that Sony BMG, which releases music by Jennifer Lopez, Good Charlotte and Beyoncé Knowles, among others, had provided stations with entertainers for station-affiliated concerts or paid for station equipment or other bills in exchange for having its songs played. It also provided vacations and electronic goods for on-air giveaways in a direct trade for airplay. And it hired independent promoters to funnel money to stations.
        http://www.nytimes.com/2005/07/26/technology/26iht-payola.html?_r=1&amp;

      • Naomi March 5, 2015

        Her last hit was Drunk In Love. And I need to know why you posted that when im already fully aware of it. I wasn’t the one claiming my fave is above payola like you bwahaha.

      • LB March 5, 2015

        I guess by BeyHive standards, Drunk in love was a hit LMAO. Anyway Diamonds topped the charts WORLDWIDE, major hit.

      • Keri Qween March 5, 2015

        @lb, I think the h/I/v fan considers ratchet in love a hit even though fourfive will outsell it in a few weeks kiiii, ratchet in love benefitted from streams mostly!

        And kiiii@you exposing the Sony payola!!! The h/I/v keeps clinging to that one day radio deal

      • Tyler March 5, 2015

        Yeah, Diamonds did top the charts its just too bad that it didnt help Unapologetic top Beyonce’s whole body of work.

      • Naomi March 5, 2015

        So if you don’t consider it a hit, what do you consider FFS? Can you ever answer a straight question?

      • LB March 5, 2015

        But by how much did Beyonce, who needed a gimmick to sell considering 4’s poor sales, outsell Unapologetic by? Not much.

        In fact, if we counted record sales, the margin between the number of records Unapologetic sold and the number of records Beyonce sold is quite large, in fact very large.

      • LB March 5, 2015

        But when did I say 4.5 seconds, which is 500K copies awat from outselling Drunk in love (which charted off of views) is a hit?

        It’s a successful song, I mean it sold more than 7/11 which gets urban radio plays everyday and has got Beyonce shaking her as$ for views (so it can chart).

      • Naomi March 5, 2015

        Stop beating around the bush and just answer the damn question already. Drunk In Love WAS a hit. Like it or not.

      • CherylSoldierr March 5, 2015

        But that’s not what her comment was about. It was about the fact that you f*** got clocked for the hypocrisy.

      • Naomi March 5, 2015

        He can never answer a straight question. Its like I am dangling a frantic mouse on a string with his struggle attempts to deflect almost every comment I have made.

  104. Molly March 5, 2015

    Tyler is playing no games lol neither is Ms.Naomi yall better drag Rihfourhead for filth

  105. Blue Ivy Rod (fourfivesecondsofSeethin) March 5, 2015

    But explain how rihanna half the age of Beyonce ca. Outsell her in half the time? Saying quality over quantity but get beyonces”album of work” keeps being outsold by Rihannas microwave pop music? Isn’t that a self drag that the public rather listen to Rohanan than BEYONCÉ steal a song not hers and sing it?

    • Tyler March 5, 2015

      Death @ Half the time. Hun, who is about to release their 8th album with only 10 Million sold in ten years?

      • Naomi March 5, 2015

        Crying at half the time. Dangerously in Love (03) MOTS (04). They make it seem like she came out with an album like Adele and snatched and scalped effortlessly in a year. This broad has released more music than anyone else of the past 10 years and bragging like her age is some kind of accomplishment.

      • Blue Ivy Rod (MarchMadness) March 5, 2015

        So has Mariah, Jigga… point?

      • Naomi March 6, 2015

        Reading is fundamental. I said past 10 years.

  106. Keri Qween March 5, 2015

    Death the porno album a body of work? The h/I/v is delusional

    • Tyler March 5, 2015

      Yeah, a body of work, something that you wouldnt know too much about considering the fact that you stan for an artist who’s whole entire career is reliant on singles.

      • Keri Qween March 5, 2015

        a body of p*** more like it
        W**** in love
        Ratchet/11
        Partition
        Flawless

        It sounds like a 10 yr old wrote most of her songs kiii

      • Tyler March 5, 2015

        A few of those song that you’ve just named are critically acclaimed boo. Can we say the same thing about H** Anthems like Pour it up? What Now? Right Now? or Cant Remember to Purchase You????
        No…Oh, okay. Didnt think so.

    • Naomi March 5, 2015

      The Universal acclaim proves we are not delusinal. Something Rihanna has never achieved but shes gunning for this era.

  107. LB March 5, 2015

    Anyway I am done conversing with the H**, hopefully they put down the Beyonce CDs and pick up a book one of these days, who knows, just like the chance of Slay_Hive (Prismatic) getting a community college 1 year Certificate and passing his ESL classes, miracles happen.

  108. Tyler March 5, 2015

    Rihanna’s the most singles reliant artist of the past decade. She has yet to have a successful era without 1 (or 2) hit songs dominating the airwaves. If she doesnt get it together soon R8 will more than likely be a FLOP.

  109. Naomi March 5, 2015

    Snippetanna testing the water with these Kanye reject tracks is so pitiful. One things for sure, her hit songs are what carries her album and without one… Lawd knows. Artpop teas. You better hope she pulls something good out the bag in the near future.

    • Keri Qween March 5, 2015

      As long as it doesn’t flop like 4closure she’ll be fine

      • Naomi March 5, 2015

        But 4 went platinum easier than 90% of Rihanna albums which struggle for a whole a year. Like i said, Artpop tease.

      • CherylSoldierr March 5, 2015

        Ignore this troll. Keri can’t even afford studio time anymore

      • Tyler March 5, 2015

        You mean as long as its not a flop like Music of the Sun, A Girl Like Me, or Rated R….Since 4 outsold all of them???

      • Keri Qween March 5, 2015

        But she still ends up selling more or the same amount as beyonce the “album seller”worldwide

        Talk that Talk outsold 4closure worldwide and they were released the same year

        and kii@cherylirrelevantsoldier- f** you have keri confused with your local fave, Keri is an established songwriter way before she was a singer shes been getting coins

      • Naomi March 5, 2015

        The only Beyonce album Rihanna can outsell is 4>>>>>_/ And 4 is such a flop yet its sold more than half of Rihannas albums in the same place she has 13 #1s #DEATH.

      • CherylSoldierr March 5, 2015

        when was keri’s last hit as a singer or songwriter? cheryl’s was in november.

  110. CherylSoldierr March 5, 2015

    Her husky island boy vocals are not meant for a children’s film. They sound a mess next to Jim Parsons. She needs some more rapper c*m to coat her chain smoker damaged voice box.

    • Keri Qween March 5, 2015

      Didnt you post this same tired drag earlier f**? How long have you been on this thread since it was first put up? KIII broke bum

      • CherylSoldierr March 5, 2015

        What kind of stupid self drag when you literally occupy every single post? Your flop fave literally hasn’t had a mention in YEARS. sit your flop a$$ down and stop clinging to the navy troll.

    • Tyler March 5, 2015

      Rihanna needs to find another profession because she cant sing.

  112. Barb B**** March 5, 2015

    Someone should have been honest and told her she does not possess the vocal ability for this. I can sense a delusional Kanye behind all of this.

  113. hives scared of R8 March 5, 2015

    Lmao Why are the fleas talking about singles when t********* didnt produce a hit after DrunkinFlops???17 music videos not 1 #1 hit. what kind of flop. You wanna talk about struggle? The z-squad has failed Ci-error again.They talk the most sh t yet their fav flops the hardest.Ci-Error is done! I Bet she will never see another top 10 hit.Thats why yall mad and seething up and down this post.Rihanna took a big risk this time around.She released a folk song(not radio friendly)with competition.You can’t expect the fleas to understand because they are a bunch of ignorant classless no benefits having hos. Your fav hasnt seen a #1 hit in 6 years.More like flopyonce tease.

    • Blue Ivy Rod (MarchMadness) March 5, 2015

      These h*** are pressed. I’m really impressed with Higher from what I’m hearing and I want to hear the rest. This snippet has killed any acclaim that your basic faves has gotten. Jazz/blues feel…only 27? I respect her for trying new sounds and keeping the GP interested

  116. Blue Ivy Rod (MarchMadness) March 5, 2015

    Sam, you need to post the Rihanna March Madness commercial!

    And why is Slay Hive and friends still seething after I left?

    Your fave is a flop, deal with it. She is on the level of Nicki now, so go debate with them

    • CherylSoldierr March 5, 2015

      but your fave can’t even do nicki’s sales fist week

      • Blue Ivy Rod (MarchMadness) March 5, 2015

        BUT CAN NICKI SELL AS MUCH AS rIHANNA? sINGLES AND ALBUMS? Your drag doesn’t even make sense, so what if Rih didn’t sell high first week numbers, she still outsells everyone else including your no octave having fave

      • Tyler March 5, 2015

        True that!

      • CherylSoldierr March 6, 2015

        Honey you must be stupid. You called Beyonce a flop yet your fave gets outsold by nicki, jackie evancho, adam lambert, susan boyle, etc. absolutely SCREAMING that you backtracked and had to include singles.

      PRAY that that happens. If not, I will book a day off simply to ruthlessly drag your fave

    The age of snippetry is so boring. Just make the music and give it to us when you’re finished. We will never be able to construct a reliable opinion on a song if we hear 1% of it. Instead what will happen is that we’ll end up EXPECTING something and then getting disappointed when we discover that it’s not what we expected once the full song comes out.

    I like her raspy, eroded-like voice it’s something very fresh compared to the studio-manufactured Rihanna I’m used to. She was also magnificent in her grammy performance, I love how her voice is maturing.

    Yo, I like. I do want some of her usual… dance/pop but I’m loving the new sound. I’ve always appreciate her tone and now she’s giving it some attention. I just hope they find a balance between songs like this and giving us something to move to. Yall sleep tho. Those snippets are Fire!
