Rihanna’s ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’ Cracks The UK Top 40

Published: Tuesday 21st Apr 2015 by David


Her fans may be confused by her current album campaign, but it’s clear that it’ll take more than confusion to get in the way of Rihanna fans and their support for the Grammy winning singer.

For, even without a supporting music video or physical promotion in the market, the star’s ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’ has found a spot in the UK’S Top 40.

Good news after the jump…

This week saw the number rise thirteen spots to claim #39 for itself, doing so as Taylor Swift‘s ‘Style’ seems to be going out of fashion, slipping to #40 as Ciara‘s ‘I Bet‘ backflips into the Top 100 to find a home at #80.

‘Money’ is pulled from Rihanna’s eighth studio album and dropped before the release of its follow-up bop ‘American Oxygen’, third single to be pushed to support the project.

    • Mark111 April 21, 2015

      You mean how Nicki said her album was going to be more personal and stripped down? lol, flop and 99 features.

      • ontherun April 21, 2015

        If yoy listened to the album you’d know that was true u dumb b****

  2. Tane April 21, 2015

    any word on a bbhmm video? like wtf

    • I STAN(D) IN LINE FOR HYDROQUINONE) April 21, 2015

      that video would not save the trashy A$$ single so not even worth making

      • LOL April 21, 2015


  3. Tyler Makiveli April 21, 2015

    Still waiting for the “Ray of Light” moment to happen. Any day now…..

    • Slay_Hive April 21, 2015


  4. FutureCIARA April 21, 2015

    You KNOW shes flopping bad when “American Flopxygen” is predicted to sell 24k singles first week, When “I BET” is selling 33k copies in its 12th week….. LMFAOOO



    • Nicki Is Queen April 21, 2015


    • Tyler Makiveli April 21, 2015

      Lol SCREAMS! Oh how the mighty have fallen lol.

    • Blue Ivy Rodriguez April 21, 2015

      Huh? This was Cis first single and rihs was 4-5 seconds. Rihs is platinum did I bet sell 200k yet?

      • FutureCIARA April 21, 2015

        It dont matter at this point what number single they’re on, Remember Rihanna has released 8493274892 more singles since January! “I Bet” is slaying RnB and Radio in its own right. Unlike Rih who resorted to multiple performances at HUGE televised award shows, and 23832978492 magazine covers, plus social media promo all for Four Flop Seconds…….. Keep clinging to that Platinum cert though for dear LIFE, yet still cant provide a #1 receipt or album release date which is TRAGIC for Old Navy standards…

      • LOL April 21, 2015


  5. Jay April 21, 2015

    Ciara fans… Chill. Be classy. Lol

  6. Pat April 21, 2015

    Where is Sam when you need him…Stop trying to make this song happen! Yes the hook is catchy, but overall the song just ain’t it!

  7. Blue Ivy Rodriguez April 21, 2015

    Stans lie but numbers don’t, at least this song could chart with no promo outside America. I know a few stans out here cannot say that about their fave! *pours a drink out for the less(ers) fortunate*

    • Yeah I Said It April 22, 2015

      You’re so right… Which explains why this era is flopping. Her music sucks.

  8. DEL BEY April 21, 2015

    People like Rhianna here in the UK, but it takes a little more than yodelling and gyrating her p**** to impress the American audience.

    • Nicki Is Queen April 21, 2015

      No shade but the UK is always letting people like Cheryl Cole top charts more then once it’s sad usually people like that in the U.S. Do it once and then die off

      • DEL BEY April 21, 2015

        Yeah like Carly Ray Jepson, lets hope she never tops the charts again…

        Cheryl got lucky I think, she came from a moderately successful girl band , then went solo, then on to X Factor where the general public began to like to her. She was in the right place at the right time, we also have Adele, Ed Sheeran and Ellie Goulding topping the charts.

    • LOL April 21, 2015


      • DEL BEY April 22, 2015

        Because she doesn’t make you want to puke when she does it

  9. african music lover April 21, 2015

    Yes David,make that damage control for your fav my brother, where is Sam to drag her to the pits of hell?? But on a serious note, what happened to the navy, it looks like they have vanished into thin air…
    The Hive and barbs,i need you all to stand up and help me sing this song and repeat after..Say..TO THE LEFT TO LEFT..
    Now the monsters pls join-in and help us..say…WHAT GOES AROUND, COMES BACK AROUND HEY…
    Now the C-squard, the lambs and the rest of the fanbases pls join-in and shout as loud as you can and say…IT SUCKS TO BE YOU RIGHT NOW….

    Honestly my interest for this album is slowly deminishing but hey,never count her out, i have a feeling she has something big coming and shout to blue rodrigwhatever for sticking out for Rihanna in this time of sadness, a true fan indeed.
    #waits patiently for Leona Lewis new alum

  12. I STAN(D) IN LINE FOR HYDROQUINONE) April 21, 2015

    This is her Flop Era, I’m Telling u CIARA will outshine this bleached Hoë


    I’m not surprised that the single is so well-received in the U.K. and t be completely honest nobody else should be surprised too. This woman is a musical powerhouse, a force of nature to be reckoned with. Say it ain’t so! Let her have her “Ray of Light” era, get her multi-platinum plaques, and enjoy the outcome of her tireless effort to create such a soon-to-be universally-acclaimed album. Next multi-platinum album here we come! #Navy

    • Tyler Makiveli April 21, 2015

      Multi platinum albums??? You mean ONE multi platinum ALBUM.

      • WHO ME? WHO YOU, CHILE? HA HA HA! (QUEEN SLAYANNA) April 21, 2015

        No, I meant what I said. “Good Girl Gone Bad” and “Loud” are both multi-platinum. This release will be her third multi-platinum album.

      • Keri Qween April 21, 2015


  14. Slay_Hive April 21, 2015

    She’s about to crack into BB top 50 tomorrow. lmaoo Why is she holding out the video release? I guess that’s her way of trying to give the single some legs and staying power but that’s not happening. No one is listening to that boring contrived s*** anymore and no one is waiting on her to release a basic ass video with her model posing and dancing like a stiff white woman. *yawns* this era is such a damn flop!

  15. FutureCIARA April 21, 2015

    So apparently Chris Brown released a duet Ft. RihThotnna, to create buzz and put a stopper in this sinking ship of an era……

    Not them STILL clinging to each-other…….. And how does CB’s baby mom feel about him still releasing music with his EX?
    Why is Rihanna still running back and forth to the man that punched her lights out?

    They can HAVE it….

    • Keri Qween April 21, 2015

      Girl bye

      If you spent as much time buying Caesars music as you did trolling and worrying about Rih I bet would have scanned 200k

      • Slay_Hive April 21, 2015

        The MF irony coming from a Skeri Stan who shades Beyonce’s single and album sales. I can’t


      I agree with everything you said. I love Rih, but I wish that she would stop helping that man with his non-existent career.. Like just let him lose his relevance…..like Bieber did. It’s survival of the fittest out there. If you burn out quickly, then you weren’t meant to be a star in the first place.

      Anyway, it’s a good thing Ciara is giving me my life this era, so that I have someone else to get slayed by.

    • datreddone23 April 21, 2015

      Yet Ciara is crying about Future putting out a song publicly bashing him to sell. To bad Ci will never have a Rihanna “Stay” record 🙂

  16. Cough Cough April 21, 2015

    At the end of the day, quality/good/satisfying music is much more relevant than a chart position. I NEVER click on a song on my playlist because it slated billboard… I NEVER go on my iPhone and play a song cause it’s number one on iTunes… I never base my standards of music based on units sold….. EVER. That’s dumb and has, by no means, any baring on the “good-ness” of the song. Top 40, whip-dee-do.. Can we talk about the actual song? Is that a slay?

  17. RICHIE_RICH April 21, 2015

    BBHMM is so becoming!!!!!!!! Oh the irony of it all.

    Ciara is going to slay this era!!!!!!

  18. Mark111 April 21, 2015

    The hate is real from the HIVE and C-Scotts.

    • Mark111 April 21, 2015

      Not BGR?! They been posting Samsung is doomed post for the past 5 years. They’re the S A M of techblogs.

  19. datreddone23 April 21, 2015

    No surprise there her worldwide appeal is massive she is the queen of the U.K.
