Did TIDAL Hurt Rihanna’s ‘American Oxygen’? Hits Daily Double Weighs In

Published: Saturday 25th Apr 2015 by David

Beyonce and Jay-Z may want to think twice before using TIDAL to premiere the joint album they’re said to be cooking up.

For, if remarks made by the industry info source Hits Daily Double is anything to go by, the streaming service is to blame for the problems Rihanna’s ‘American Oxygen’ is said to be facing on the charts.

Their estimation below…

The publication shares:

Jay Z’s Tidal has opted to ignore the new-artist sector in favour of superstars, and the strategy is not working. For example, it’s believed that Tidal’s total streams average around 1m a day, while individual tracks on Spotify regularly hit that number. Tidal’s top-heavy branding approach, with its emphasis on these older, established acts, simply doesn’t have the currency that Apple has maintained by prioritizing newer acts, having discerned early on that the discovery process is part of the cool factor. How is it that the world’s richest corporation has managed to retain its coolness while Tidal seems to have missed the boat? Not only have the initial Tidal exclusives failed to move the needle, the Rihanna video exclusive on “American Oxygen” appears to have actually hurt the launch of the song, which sold only 19k in its first four days.Deepening the irony, Jay’s Roc Nation is both her label and her manager. Thus far, Tidal is seen by most observers as a big miss.

As an act whose singles usually blast the charts from the onset there’s no denying this era of Rihanna‘s career has seen her struggle to do that.

Is TIDAL to blame for sucking the life out of ‘Oxygen’s opening numbers? Perhaps. However, I’d say that it stands as one of many barriers blocking the singer’s way towards ‘Only Girl in the World’ style success?

The biggest barrier? Her bravery.

For, it would have been far easier to release another batch of generic bops than to dig deeper for content just as unique as she is in the way she’s doing now.

So, here’s hoping the era’s shaky start doesn’t deter Rihanna from releasing the timeless material she owes her fans…and herself.

Your thoughts?

    Tidal is shaping up to be a fat slice of humble pie for our faves.

    • TheElusiveLamb April 25, 2015

      Sweetheart, I would say it is way more than one slice and one serving. It most likely won’t take off until 2016/2017. I think the Beyoncè & Jay-Z joint album will help, but most of the subscribers that get Tidal will only do it on a trial to listen to the album and then cancel his/her subscription once they find it on a torrent site.

      • LOL April 25, 2015

        LOL STOP MAKING EXCUSES FOR CAMEL AND HIS SLAVE/WIFE. TIDAL IS A MAJOR FLOP, POINT BLANK LOL

    • HaveMyMoney April 25, 2015

      Bye Rihanna

      The Titanic never bought it… Simple…

  3. Beyonslae April 25, 2015

    No Rihanna is just a flop

    • THE VOICE April 25, 2015

      I don’t think it’s that simple.
      This roll out of hr first Roc Nation CD has been awful.
      ROC NATION is under Def Jam but now Roc Nation is responsible for the roll out instead of Def Jam.
      She should have signed directly to Def Jam or went to New Republic instead of ROC NATION.
      She needs Akon’s brother or LA Reid again since Ciara doesn’t want to listen to her label.
      ROC NATION CANNOT A&R their artists and Rihanna needs to be A&R’d. Period.
      JCOlE writes and produces his own music so he is good.

  4. Nt April 25, 2015

    Yes it allowed leaks to get to the song before the song could be sold.

  5. ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) April 25, 2015

    Who???
    Anyway, as much as I want to say TIDAL is a flop, it’s a brand new business and it’s going to take time for it to really get on it’s feet. Once Beyonce releases music on it, people will pay attention more…as people still check for her music….

    • Rihyeezy April 25, 2015

      Weak ass shade.

      • ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) April 25, 2015

        But you caught it though

  6. TheElusiveLamb April 25, 2015

    I believe that Tidal did hurt Riri. I mean the service only has 100k downloads on the Android market; imagine if Riri did this incredible marketing with Spotify (or even Shazam like Mimi did for the Infinity single cover). No one can tell me that it wouldn’t slayed. AO is the best (buzz?) single she has released thus far. There is no way it should not be top 20 this week and entering top 10 next week. Still, I can’t say too much bc every artist declines in one way or another. I guess we all we just wait and see what happens to R8.

    • Beyonslae April 25, 2015

      Worry about Retiremariah

      • TheElusiveLamb April 25, 2015

        Lol are you stalking me now?

      • Tyler Makaveli April 25, 2015

        @Beyonslae
        Shut your fake ass up and stop try to instigate s***.

  7. Rihyeezy April 25, 2015

    Yes! It’s all her fault! I myself was pissed I had to wait 1+ Weeks to see the dam video.
    Still my song doe

        Google the curious case of kid kaikaze.
        it should be on the first page.

        Wait go to noirbaptistedottumblrdotcom
        I didn’t know he could write like that

  9. Nata April 25, 2015

    Rihanna is fading, that’s all.

  10. bria April 25, 2015

    She needs to distance herself immediately and let jay and bey fend for themselves

    Let them stand on thier own and let Rihanna who wil be just fine, them not so sure

    Run rihanna if you have any sense now is the time to be your own woman, fight to get away from those blood suckers

    • B2B April 25, 2015

      But the Carters do fend for themselves. They are billionaire moguls. Rihanna does NOTHING for Roc, Jay or Bey. J.cole is the #1 artist of ROC Nation if you hadn’t noticed.

  11. ~The Arcade~ April 25, 2015

    Poor Rih, she was Tidal’s guinea pig. That’s why she released the “James Joint” interlude on a different website.

  12. King April 25, 2015

    To be honest the song would’ve never been a hit. I love the lyrical substance and the video but that’s not what radio wants.

  13. B2B April 25, 2015

    Longevity is key, Tidal could be the next ITunes by 2020. Only time will tell. As for AO, I personally believe that the March Madness performance left the GP like “WTF is this s***!” Rih simply got what she gave.

    • OMG Logic!!! April 25, 2015

      The delusion is strong in this one. TIDAL is a flop and their offices will be closing 2-3 years.

  14. Citi April 25, 2015

    It’s simple. The U.S. Economy is not built for people to spend $20 a month for music. Not when people pay $25-$35 a year for commercial less music on iTunes and pandora. Jay z was stupid and greedy and his analysts missed the most obvious mark.

  15. blue April 25, 2015

    the tidal exclusive thing was a stupid plan, she should never let it last for more than a day…by the time she got it on itunes, spotify and youtube the hype for it had died down.

  16. Mark111 April 25, 2015

    I already said that tidal was the blame. I hate that Rihanna had to risk her single on that site while the Carters released a 3 year old song about an ugly baby and Mary Had A Little Lamb piano song.

    • Guess April 25, 2015

      Rihanna didn’t HAVE to risk anything. What a self drag. Thanks for admitting that your fave is a mere puppet who isn’t smart enough to gage the right direction for her career.

    • Only (NICKIARA) April 25, 2015

      Centurion tease>>>>> you asking to be banned

    • Only (NICKIARA) April 25, 2015

      Centurion tease>>>>> you asking to be banned don’t come for blue

    • The Beysus Impact April 25, 2015

      Ugly baby??? Please, at least her forehead won’t be as big as Rihbola’s!!! And as if FourFiveFloppings wasn’t considered “Old MacDonald”!! ????????????????????

  17. Haii April 25, 2015

    So what hurt FFs and BBHMM? lmao. AO is flopping on radio. Did Tidal hurt that too? Rihanna is starting to fade and her music this time is bad. I need her to release something again without Tidal to prove my point like she has already did with FFs and BBHMM.

    • blue April 25, 2015

      both FFS and BBHMM are doing great on the chart.

      • Mark111 April 25, 2015

        It’s one of the Bey-holes trolling. They better hide their face.

  18. Slay_Hive April 25, 2015

    Bye!!! The video was released to vevo and the song has been promoted and put on itunes. The song is just corny and uninteresting. Its had the same amount of exposure as FFS and BBHMM(which doesnt even have an official video).The excuses. Girl just release that flop album and go back to your over-saturating strategy of releasing generic albums annually. lmfao

    • Mark111 April 25, 2015

      A song being held on one streaming site is not the same as the first two singles. Have a seat.

  19. blue April 25, 2015

    both FFS and BBHMM are doing great on the chart.

    • The Beysus Impact April 25, 2015

      Great for a flop… Where’s her 14th #1???????

      • OMG Logic!!! April 25, 2015

        LMAO where’s Thighyonce’s relevance on the Hot 100? Oh, that’s right, snoozing in 2008 when she barely managed to get a #1.

      • The Beysus Impact April 25, 2015

        Weak

  20. Mark111 April 25, 2015

    I want to see the rest of those ho3s that was on that stage release their singles exclusivity on Flopal. I want Feeling Myself video to launch on it. I want Usher’s next 99 singles to launch on it. Madonna, Keys, those wack DJs, Swift and all. Rihanna will be fine, it’s just one single, BBHMM isdoing fine.

  21. Keri Qween April 25, 2015

    Like I said the other day

    rih don’t put anymore of your music on that flop Tidal website , f*ck jay z and the carters that exclusive of ao on tidal hurt the song

    But she still has ffs slaying after 3 months and bbhmm rose this week and will continue if she promotes

  22. Haii April 25, 2015

    FFs and BBHMM are not doing great by Rihanna standards. 7/11 performed the same way and the navy called it a flop. DIL charted higher than FFs and the navy thought that it was a flop too because it did not hit number one. The navy is looking stupid now and I am enjoying that.

    • Keri Qween April 25, 2015

      Beyonce hasn’t had a #1 in 7 years so yes she is a flop and dil her biggest in years still couldn’t do it so yes she’s a flop

      Ffs will cross 2 x platinum in a few weeks, dil only sold 2.8 million y’all hype that one single up the rest of her singles flopped

      And bbhmm has sold half of 7/11, with no visual

      • The Beysus Impact April 25, 2015

        Delusion…

      • Cindy April 25, 2015

        When was a the last time Rih had a double platinum album, GGGB? Girl have a seat trying to call Bey a flop. Your fave doesn’t have her star power, simple. Let Bey would gave dropped her surprise album on there, but she didn’t because she actually has control over her career, will Rih is a puppet.

  23. fatusankoh April 25, 2015

    Is a Big No stope making excusers when it come to rehoo

  24. Tyler Makaveli April 25, 2015

    No, you cant hold Tidal responsible.
    You can lead the horse to water, but you cant make it DRINK!

    • Guess April 25, 2015

      Exactly. The navy loses both ways, but they keep trying to pass the blame.
      Options:
      1. Someone else made the decision- why is her career in someone else’s hands if she has as much control as the navy says she does?
      2. She called the shots- she was responsible for making the dumb decision and didn’t know what she was doing.

      It’s her fault no matter what scenario you give. Ten years in, if she thought it was a bad idea, she should’ve done something.

      • Tyler Makaveli April 25, 2015

        Right, the falls on Rihanna regardless. She either doesnt know how to properly control her own brand or she’s the industry puppet that everyone always makes her out to be.

      • Tyler Makaveli April 25, 2015

        *blame

  25. Barb-wire April 25, 2015

    Blame Tidal and Blame Rihanna but there’s still a chance it can do well but at this point people lost interest on the song so I wouldn’t bet on it. AO is flopping but this is a chance she should be releasing a smash hit then the album but alas I get the feeling it ain’t coming soon.

  26. Your faves toenail April 25, 2015

    Definitely. I didn’t watch the vid because they wanted me to download the app and then pay $19.99 to signup. Girl I wouldn’t even pay that much for a Ciara ticket even with the promo this site is giving she..

  27. The Beysus Impact April 25, 2015

    Beyonce hasn’t had a #1 in 7 years so yes she is a flop <<<< ummmm sold out shows??? Critical acclaim??? 2 platinum albums??? 10 Grammy wins??? Lol the delusion of people thinking #1 singles are the most important thing!!! ????????????

    • The Beysus Impact April 25, 2015

      OMG THE EMOJIS WORK!!!

    • Keri Qween April 25, 2015

      But the h/I/v is the one talking about #1 singles so i just stated a fact

      • The Beysus Impact April 25, 2015

        The only reason we’re talking about it is cause we’re asking why Rihbola still doesn’t have one this era since YOU all brag about it all the time and think Rihbola’s better than Queen Bey… ????☕️☕️☕️

  28. Yonce on your mouth April 25, 2015

    Lamo So when Rihanna sells it’s her power but when she flops it’s not her doing? This is just a lame excuse. Taylor sold well without stoptify. Well now that it’s on itunes, why is it not selling? The Navy just want to validate rihanna’s flopping. They need an excuse. This songs is a big flop! No excuse.

    • Keri Qween April 25, 2015

      Taylor sold twice as much as the porno album too kiii

      Your fave could never even with Ber surprise gimmick

      • The Beysus Impact April 25, 2015

        If only Beyonce had a porno album…

      • Tyler Makaveli April 25, 2015

        @keri Qween
        B****, shut the f*** up because Rihanna isnt slaying Beyonce or Taylor in album sales. SHE NEVER HAS.

  29. Jamie April 25, 2015

    I guess you gotta blame somebody…

  30. Tyler Makaveli April 25, 2015

    I said that this s*** was going to happen when she switched labels a while back.
    No Def Jam = No “Hits”

    The #1’s slayage was fun while it lasted.

  31. Rosie April 25, 2015

    This excuse. No, the song sucks and is a flop, they should just move on with it. The Navi has been claiming since 2013 that the GP is READY!!!!1 and cANT WIThSTaND tHE THiRsT f0r nEW RiH!!! and if that was really true then then song would be at least top 50 on iTunes still. Plus it’s already losing radio updates without even reaching 3M AI.

  32. KeKe April 25, 2015

    AO should have been the first single tbh, just hope every track on R8 Will have a video just to make up for making us wait this long.

  33. The Beysus Impact April 25, 2015

    Where’s this porno album that Beyonce made that the Titanic claim to have??? Cause we don’t have it! ????????????

  34. Tyler Makaveli April 25, 2015

    The Navy should be the last stan base talking about gimmicks when Rihanna was that big five-headed chick who was struggling to sing “I don’t wanna do dis anymoooore, I don’t wanna be the reason whyy”. Until JAY-Z REVAMPED AND REVIVED her dead ass career. HE GAVE her that swagged out “good girl turned bad” gimmick that made her what she is today! The b**** was once suffocating so please don’t get cute. You all need to chew it over with Twix and take a trip down memory lane before you go putting your damn pinky in the air!!

  35. Haii April 25, 2015

    @ Keri Qween that is why Rihanna will continue to flop, Tidal or not. It’s Karma time!!!

    • Keri Qween April 25, 2015

      Tidal is a FLOP jay z and Carter venture , the #s prove it

      Rih should abandon it ASAP

      • Tyler Makaveli April 25, 2015

        FFS and BBBHMM werent even released on TIDAL. So the #’s prove that Rihanna’s recent efforts have been flops PERIOD . Deal with it!
        And Rihanna obviously doesnt have a mind of her own. So I highly doubt that she’s going to abandoned a muthafuckin thing.

      • Tyler Makaveli April 25, 2015

        *abandon

  36. XXX April 25, 2015

    You can blame Tidal all you want. Rihanna is a grown ass woman old enough to be someone’s mom she can make her own decisions. So the only one to blame is her.

  37. Guess April 25, 2015

    I must say. This has to be my favorite Rihanna era so far. Playing “find AO on the charts” has really heightened my alertness. I think that’s a word. You grammar queens can check me. Whenever I feel down, I read Yeah I said it, Tyler, beysus impact, and how many drinks’ drags, and my energy is replenished. So I must thank Rihanna for that. It’s been a great year. Keep up the good work. Be blessed.

  38. XXX April 25, 2015

    And if the song was as good it would have charted higher the low end of the charts with or without tidal. It’s Rihanna after all. Not here for excuses. All her music is basic and lacklustre this era the navy just need to accept that.

  39. Slay_Hive April 25, 2015

    LOL Get into these excuses. I thought SHE was the Hot 100 queen and everything she touches turn to gold. Me smell a flop coming. The navy will finally see what the Hive has been telling them for years. Art Pop teas!!????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

    • Kisses Down Low April 25, 2015

      Love that picture of Blue you just need to crop so her cute face can actually be seen!

      • Slay_Hive April 25, 2015

        Thanks!! She is just so cute, I wanna be the babysitter. Lord knows how much that would pay. Imma crop it tho. I’m being lazy right now. ????????

  40. Marley April 25, 2015

    Hahahha let the endless excuses roll in! If Rihanna is as powerful on the Hot 100 as her fans make out a Tidal release shouldn’t have affected the song that badly.

  41. Cake like Lady GaGa April 25, 2015

    No one cares what tgj has to say tho.. Keep ur opinions to yourselves

    • Tyler Makaveli April 25, 2015

      B****, you’re fave is soliciting her ass off at convalescent homes and throwing up on stages for relevancy…you have no opinion.

  42. Kisses Down Low April 25, 2015

    FLOP

  43. OMG Logic!!! April 25, 2015

    TIDAL is and will continue to be a flop so long as the camel and his stripper maintain their ludicrous and absurdly out of touch (with reality) marketing strategy.

    • The Beysus Impact April 25, 2015

      Stripper??? Is this the same stripper that made this imaginary porno album??? ????????????

    • Tyler Makaveli April 25, 2015

      They’ll continue to flop as long as they use Football Heads music as the fore runner for the brand as opposed to artist who can actually sell albums.

    • Barb-wire April 25, 2015

      Hahahahahahahah… Attacking Bey and Jay won’t make Rihanna less of a flop but carry on it’s quite entertaining seeing The Titanic making a fool of themselves.

  44. Haii April 25, 2015

    Jay Z has a successful and legendary career as a rapper. If he has one failed business that’s nothing. Rihanna is flopping at 27. AO is flopping on radio. AO is flopping on iTunes and on Vevo the views is low for a Rihanna video. No one is here for that badly produced noise.

  45. Killer Bey April 25, 2015

    Pay back is a b****!!!! Roll on RL8! A good year in music, I must say.

  46. blue April 25, 2015

    i swear some people are just plain idiots…Tidal is to blame as in rihanna shouldnt have made her song only available on one site. Yall making it seem the navy is claiming that the mere existance of tidal hurt the song’s momentum

    • Tyler Makaveli April 25, 2015

      How the f*** is Tidal the blame when it was RIHANNA’S DECISION???
      Nobody put a gun to her big ass head and made her release AO exclusively on Tidal….

      • blue April 25, 2015

        releasing the song on tidal was the mistake so yes trying to make tidal happen with the song is to blame….like seriously.

      • Tyler Makaveli April 25, 2015

        Are you mentally delayed? Rihanna wasn’t forced to release her music on Tidal. FFS’s and BBHMM were flopping BEFORE TIDAL. So she’s the only one to blame.

      • Guess April 25, 2015

        There’s only one logical answer to your question… Because it wasn’t Rihanna’s decision. It was someone else’s decision. Someone with more power. More control. more money. The navy is blaming Rihanna’s “handlers” as they rightfully should. How could Rihanna make the decision? What power does she have to assert? You don’t blame a child for bad behavior. You blame the parents. If it’s not Rihanna’s fault then she must be yielding to someone else. What kind of Queen…

    • Haii April 25, 2015

      Rihanna singles depend heavily on payola and AO is flopping on radio, that’s another reason why AO is not doing well.

      • blue April 25, 2015

        honey learn what payola is first then we can talk

    • The Beysus Impact April 25, 2015

      Excuses excuses…

  47. Mark111 April 25, 2015

    Just know that Chris Brown’s and Monica’s babies are everything the world thought Blue Z was going to look like, cute and adorable. Poor Carters.

    • The Beysus Impact April 25, 2015

      Too bad no one wants to have Rihbola’s kids since she’s such a s***. Poor Rihbola and her flop singles…

    • Tyler Makaveli April 25, 2015

      Umm, you stan for the Tinashe of the 1990’s you have no merit or deed.

    • Slay_Hive April 25, 2015

      But you’re a crack baby tho. Blue is beautiful. I know you’re maaaaaadd but don’t hate on an innocent child!!! Scum hoee!!????????????????????????????

    • Kyle April 25, 2015

      Someone is mad because the world is more hyped about gorgeous Blue Ivy pictures at her grandmas wedding than American Flooygen. In fact, the entire era.

    • XXX April 25, 2015

      You’ve got to come harder than that. Blue Ivy is a pretty child she’s grown up beautifully the recent pictures prove it.

    • coolness April 25, 2015

      Oh so now you wanna side with Chris? The guy you apparently can’t stand all on the name of insulting an innocent child? Sad tbh.

  48. Kyle April 25, 2015

    Who cares? The world is more interested in Tina Knowles gorgeous wedding pictures than this flop.

  49. Haii April 25, 2015

    AO = Flop!

  50. blue April 25, 2015

    how does AO flopping proof rihanna is over yet there is FFS and BBHMM in the top 20

    • The Beysus Impact April 25, 2015

      Because they’re not #1…

      • blue April 25, 2015

        honey bey hasnt had a #1 since 2008, get over it.

        Cause if FFS is a flop then lets not begin to count the number of flops your fave has

      • Tyler Makaveli April 25, 2015

        What the f*** does Bey not having a #1 have to do with anything. B****, Drunk In Love peaked at NUMBER 2 and you called it a flop.
        So by YOUR STANDARDS FFS, BBHMM, and AO are flops too. Now sit!

      • blue April 25, 2015

        tyler honey look to your fellow beyhive about the #1 cause its your hive that seems obsessed with them

      • Tyler Makaveli April 25, 2015

        Evidently you need to look to your fellow Navy about that #1 because it looks like you all arent going to be seeing one anytime soon either.
        Which is a shame since #1’s are all your single artist of a fave stand for.

    • Tyler Makaveli April 25, 2015

      Drunk In Love AND 7/11 both charted higher than FFS and BBHMM yet and still the Navy was trying to throw shade. That’s why they’re flops b****.

  51. Tyler Makaveli April 25, 2015

    Blue Ivy throwing up the peace sign is more relevant than Pon De Forehead’s music right now, that’s why the NAIVEy is so bothered.

    • Barb B**** April 25, 2015

      Blue Ivy slays lives. She’s so cute. He’s upset because she’s snatching Rihs relevance and its looking like neither of his faves will be mothers. One is ash in ground, the other can’t keep a man longer than FFS.

      • Tyler Makaveli April 25, 2015

        Ash in the ground hahaha SCREAMS!!!

  52. Barb B**** April 25, 2015

    The song is just a horrible flop. Tidal didn’t help but that’s no excuse for its epic floppage.

  53. blue April 25, 2015

    rihanna is flopping and here is another post overpopulated by her haters

    • The Beysus Impact April 25, 2015

      You admit she’s flopping???!!!! ????????????????????????????

    • Barb B**** April 25, 2015

      Boo hoo cry me a river. Don’t act like Rihanna fans don’t do the same to Nicki and Beyonce all the time.

      • Barb-wire April 25, 2015

        Exactly @Barb b****… They stay hating and dragging our faves but when we return the favor we’re hating.

  54. Killer Bey April 25, 2015

    Wow I didn’t know the navy recognized top twenty hits after dragging 7/11. You called Beyoncé’s platinum hits flops, so the favor will be returned. The only difference is, Beyonce still gets platinum albums and singles. I can’t wait to see her debut sales and metacritic score.

    • Keri Qween April 25, 2015

      7/11 is platinum but only sold 628k y’all can cling to the certification all you want

      • XXX April 25, 2015

        But isn’t BBHMM rising on Billboard because of streams yet you were celebrating?

      • Only (NICKIARA) April 25, 2015

        You are becoming too much your fave is probably booking a backyard party perfomance along with Khia

  55. kingbeybitch April 25, 2015

    But why does the video only have 11 million views on YouTube? Cause the video was not being posted around you had to sign up for Tidal to see the video so what’s the excuse for that?

  56. Mark111 April 25, 2015

    The creepiest thing is having a 3 year old as your avi. Nasty. The hive are mental.

    • Barb B**** April 25, 2015

      But you just tried to insult at 3 year of just because the Hive come for a grown celebrity. It ain’t that deep boo. Rihanna don’t know you exist.

      • Mark111 April 25, 2015

        I’m sorry that the little girl looks like Jay Z. Not my fault, f’ck better men next time.

      • Keri Qween April 25, 2015

        It looks like the gp forgot the struggle print existed

        Has it crossed 600k yet with a 2x platinum single?

      • Barb B**** April 25, 2015

        You don’t have to be sorry for anything. Blue Ivy is both cute and richer than you’ll ever be while you’re just bottom barrel faggott confused about your identity and living through Rihanna and dead person. I’m sorry about that.
        @Keri Qween, Sorry but I can’t have serious debate about statistics with that name. Please stop reply to me all the time.

    • Slay_Hive April 25, 2015

      No the creepiest thing is being a grown ass man and hating on a beautiful little girl. Honey you are pressed on another level. You can seethe( I love that) but don’t take your frustrations with Rihanna being a washed up flop, on a baby!✌✌

    • Tyler Makaveli April 25, 2015

      You stan for an urn full of ashes. Sit the f*** down.

  57. Keri Qween April 25, 2015

    But AO has charted higher than pretty flops kii ????

    • The Beysus Impact April 25, 2015

      That’s because her x2 platinum album was already out… Idiot ????

    • Only (NICKIARA) April 25, 2015

      It also charted higher than Keri’s last 4 singles and why are you “over” clinging to the Navy?

  58. Killer Bey April 25, 2015

    The navy are so obsessed with number 1 hits but rihanna hasn’t received one yet this era after three singles. She is flopping. End of story. She can’t afford not to have big singles. Her popularity is measured by that. Not talent

  59. Mark111 April 25, 2015

    Someone keep Slave Hive away from schools, playgrounds, and parks. Grownass man obsessed with other people children. Eww

    • Tyler Makaveli April 25, 2015

      You stan for an urn full of ashes. Sit the f*** down.

    • Slay_Hive April 25, 2015

      Someone please pull Ms.Markesha all the way out of the closet. Grown ass “straight” man arguing over Aaliyah, Beyonce and Rihanna. My brothers would NEVA!! Guurrrl BYE!!????????????????????????????????????

      • TheElusiveLamb April 25, 2015

        LMAOOOOO!

  60. Barb B**** April 25, 2015

    Blue Ivy is Princess! Marks mad because the profit from American Oxygen is going towards her collage fund.

  61. Rosie April 25, 2015

    I’m confused by these posts saying BBHMM isn’t a flop by Rihanna’s standards because it went top 20. Wasn’t 7/11 top 20 for like 3 months? Yet some Navi were here every day calling it a flop.
    And the nerve of them to come for Blue. Insecure as hell.

    • Keri Qween April 25, 2015

      Roseanne shut your bandwagoning ass up and worry about your plastic fave , Bruce Jenner’s inspiration while transitioning to a woman

      7/11,is a flop and bbhmm has sold half of its sales already and 7/11 has been out for months

      • Slay_Hive April 25, 2015

        How are you going to call anyone a bandwagoner when you are a Keri Stan? 7/11 has charted higher than BBHMM without all the promo and is still charting ten spots higher on R&B/HipHop Airplay chart. 7/11’s cultural impact>>>> B**** Better Have That Flop! Sit b****!! *sips my long island ice tea* ????????????????????

      • Rosie April 25, 2015

        LMAO f** how the f*** are you going to call me bandwagon when you literally hide behind Herprihs 24/7? Why have you NEVER used your own fave’s receipts to drag? Is it because Keri literally has not released an album in almost 5 years? Because it knows it won’t even fill up a Chick-fil-a in Atlanta if it decides to tour? Everyone on this site knows I’ve been here for both Lana and Bey since I started posting. The delusion.

      • Keri Qween April 25, 2015

        7/11 had a visual slave hive dont act like visuals don’t help sales

        7/11,has sold a measley 628 k so f*** you and f*** off

      • Slay_Hive April 25, 2015

        Skeri Peasant BBHMM had a live performance, Jimmy Kimmel and those “sales” I thought Rihanna didn’t need streaming???? That’s what the navy said when they shaded DIL and 7/11……????????

      • Keri Qween April 25, 2015

        She doesn’t bbhmm sold half of 7/11 already

      • Naomi April 25, 2015

        So it still hasn’t outsold it?

    • XXX April 25, 2015

      Exactly. And they’re going on like BBHMM is sllaying it’s sales when it’s still not even Gold and falling down Itunes by the day.

  62. Barb-wire April 25, 2015

    Kiii you have to know the dragging is epic if Marsha sink so low as to come for a lil kid, when he should be celebrating The corpse’ 20th year death anniversary.

    • Keri Qween April 25, 2015

      But your faves career is dead as well . her second struggle album in a row that won’t sell a million copies in the US

    • Mark111 April 25, 2015

      Oh look, a barb that can’t count. 600k will never be epic. 🙂

      • Barb-wire April 25, 2015

        It doesn’t matter, she’s still dead and you’ll have to accept it someday.

  63. Mark111 April 25, 2015

    I make this wack @ss site. Look at all the replies my comments get. You’re welcome S A m.

    • XXX April 25, 2015

      Are you getting paid?

      • Guess April 25, 2015

        Paid? He stans for Rihanna.

    • Keri Qween April 25, 2015

      The h/I/v tells mark in one breath to not drag children into the convo and in the same breath make fun of someone’s death , what a lot of hypocritical idiots they are

      • Mark111 April 25, 2015

        That’s why I make fun of Blue Z. They don’t show ANYONE respect or have a line. I can’t wait till the Carters start getting sued and lose all their money. It’s a matter or time.

      • Barb-wire April 25, 2015

        @Skeri Qween, stop talking sh!t … No one mentioned Aaliyah till that f** start coming for a baby. So you’re the hypocrite here along with your friend Marsha the .Mourner

      • Tyler Makaveli April 25, 2015

        You get no respect when you want to come for innocent children. Especially when you stan for D********.

  64. Naomi April 25, 2015

    LOL. The Navy’s absence and the struggle to defend her by the few remaining ones on these posts is hilarious. Where are the 36363626 Navy accounts that used to swarm this site? They disappeared right after BBHMM was released. These H*** ain’t loyal!

    • Keri Qween April 25, 2015

      The h/I/v is the only one with 19393 accounts spamming each Rihanna post

      You ugly f*** have no shame.

      • Naomi April 25, 2015

        But you still never answered the question. And how many more times are you gonna have the words ‘h/I/v’ in almost all your comments? The obsession.

  65. Only (NICKIARA) April 25, 2015

    That keri stan need to chill keri has 1 top 10 album two top 10 singles
    #B**** Better change her name Keri peasant

    • Only (NICKIARA) April 25, 2015

      And TPP is like 100k from outselling no flops allowed & in a flop world

      • Rosie April 25, 2015

        I don’t even like Onika but The Pinkshit outsold No Boys Allowed in like 2 weeks.

  66. Rosie April 25, 2015

    The Keri Stan caring more about the Hive than its own fave, whose last album has yet to scan 250K after four years.

  67. Tyler Makaveli April 25, 2015

    @Mark
    Just because your fave is DEAD and BURIED doesnt mean you get a pass to be disrespectful h**.

  68. Stephon April 25, 2015

    Mark needs to be banned. Your comments about Blue is disgusting.

    • Mark111 April 25, 2015

      Suck my @ss!

    • @FutureCIARA April 25, 2015

      And it wonders why we dragg the deceased woman it stans for…..

  69. Stephon April 25, 2015

    Rihanna should be fine… I mean, it doesn’t even seem like she’s 100% focused on this era tbh. Who knows… One things for sure tho, all her singles this era has been lackluster imo. Nothing really special.

  70. african music lover April 25, 2015

    You know you r pathetic when you come for a child to drag a celebrity, i like how the Navy is MIA in all rihanna posts.where is rodriguzz (or whatever is called),where is the mighty LB? I wish some of old TGJ commenters can revisit this side and join us in this glorious moments of dragging miss foreheaded

  71. bria April 25, 2015

    Beyonce and Jay are over
    Rihanna is just beginning

    The fleas are trying their best to drag rih down but keep watching

  72. coolness April 25, 2015

    I like Rihanna but the Navy has done nothing but further fuel those claims that she is nothing but a label puppet who isn’t in control of her career. I understand that TIDAL did hurt the release of American Oxygen but why are they making seem as though Jay-Z literally FORCED her into signing up for this venture? Isn’t she a grown woman with free will and discernment? TIDAL has been a mess so far, I won’t deny that but previous singles FourFive Seconds and BBHMM were not released via this medium so who exactly is to blame for them not setting the charts ablaze like her previous efforts? The music Rih is putting out has a less commercial sound and she’s not promoting as much so their chart positions are expected. All I’m saying is, it is RIHANNA that should be held accountable for her career – not Jay-Z, Kanye West or Beyonce. Besides, all this b*tching and moaning about chart positions just shows that apart from her good looks, style and ability to slay magazine covers, the Navy has NOTHING to fall back on because Rihanna is a marginal talent.

  73. candi April 25, 2015

    Karma is a bytch. I am so glad this is happening to Jay & his devil worshipers. Blocking people and altered you picture to make i look worst what it was. Lying now this will be their downfall

  74. Kelendria April 25, 2015

    Well lets see, pandora and spotify all don’t charge for their basic plans so why would I put $20 for tidal, if he wanted to make money he should have contacted those companies to start a revolution where they all charge

  75. Blue Ivy Rodriguez April 26, 2015

    I see some of yall missed me, sorry I wasn’t available. I had to take my niece to watch HOME. The movie was great! Unlike some Stan bases I support my faves work 🙂

    Navy is unbothered, why defend Rihanna when Beyoncé, that rapper that has the body of Roger from American Dad and a Janice Nicholson.. I mean Lana Stan? The hive is so pressed that they cling to The flopping of AO to drag. Okay we get it, it’s hard to one up the navy when your faves catalog
    And sales are so mediocre that you need Barbs, two Ciara stans and a Lana Stan to drag the queen. The only thing yall need to worry about is..

    A). When will Beyoncé get her hit?
    B). When will Nicki reach 1000,000.00 WW??
    C). When will Lana get her face fixed?

  76. 1st2cents April 26, 2015

    Lots of talks around the web on how this song is under performing because the Tidal Exclusive and fans accusing the label for not promoting.

    Personally, I highly doubt it… The appeal of this entire Era is just not meant for the masses. Will give it to her for “Experimenting” and taking “Risks” but she and her fans will just have to accept that it’s not going to be a monumental era… that is unless there are other ***Mass*** singles hidden up her sleaves 😉

  77. G.U.Y April 27, 2015

    let’s see what the hive says when that album is put on tidal and eventually flops lmaooo

  78. You wanna love it right better then my money April 28, 2015

    People will blame anyone in the music business I bet Shawn Carter aka jay-z have something to say about it

  79. wayne21 August 17, 2015

    Wayne got over 10 million first week. So i wouldn’t count tidal out haaaaaa
