The Stream Scene: Rita Ora, Elijah Blake, Rihanna & Aaliyah Reach Digital Milestones

Published: Saturday 30th May 2015 by David

After enlisting Kate Nash to pen her new single ‘Poison Rita Ora has seen the bop reach a streaming milestone this week!

How she and a few esteemed others made it into this edition of TGJ’s ‘Stream Scene‘?

Find out below…


The number’s lyric video was uploaded to the VEVO platform on May 19th.

Now, less than a fortnight after, it has already been streamed 1,140,815 times, crossing the 1 million barrier on May 25th weeks before the release of its supporting music video!

Epic, to say the least.

Its success comes before the unveiling of its parent album which will feature material the star has recorded since her split from the producer Calvin Harris and the release of their smash hit single ‘I Will Never Let You Down.’


Ms. Ora isn’t the only star making moves online.

For, Hip-Hop singer Elijah Blake has scored tens across the VEVO board with his video for the single single ‘I Just Wanna.’

How? Only by nabbing 1.2 million views on the platform.

Yes, the clip did that as fans learn that it has been watched for a total of 2,191 days in less than a month and has driven 980 subscriptions to his official channel. The jam appears on his debut offering ‘Shadows & Diamonds.’

Elsewhere, Rihanna’s ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’ continues to show no signs of slowing down…even without a supporting video.

For, the star was smart enough to upload the ‘iHeart Radio Music Awards’ performance of the song on her official VEVO channel and the results have been spectacular to say the least.

Not sure what we mean? Peep the stats below…

Last not but not least is the late Aaliyah.

As fans will already know, her passing in 2001 has done nothing to diminish the public’s interest in her music and recent moves made on an unofficial fan channel on YouTube have gone a long way to prove that point.

On August 26th 2008 a YouTube user who goes  by the name of ‘AaliyahMusicVideo’ uploaded her 2001 visual for the single ‘Rock the Boat‘ to their channel. Today, on Saturday 30th May, the video has been streamed 21,320,370 times, making it one of the highest viewed Aaliyah-related clips online.

    ???????????? So not even the performance video being put on vevo can get it into top twenty again?

    • Rihboy May 30, 2015

      At least it made the top 20. Feeling myself never saw the top 40????????????????. Even with. Coechella, the tidal drop, and the “mega-seller” befraudce.

      • Slay_Hive May 30, 2015

        B**** will never have that album was in the top twenty for two nonconsecutive weeks with Iheart Radio, twitter, IG, and SNL????????????????????
        Feeling Myself charted by itself with nothing. The video was just released not too long ago. I can guarnatee if Beyband Nicki perform it on a huge platform, it would shoot up the charts with ease. They did not perform at Coachella, the video was only shot there and we all know how a Tidal Exclusive helped your fave, even though Feeling Myself was trending worldwide with more buzz than everything your fading fave has done this year combined. I like how you didn’t mention 7/11 which charted in top twenty for MONTHS with just a video and not just two measley weeks.????????????

      • Slay_Hive May 30, 2015

        Oops can’t forget BBHMM was promoted on Jimmy Kimmel as well. ???? She’s done more promo than everybody and still no release date. She better do Taylor numbers with her album.Taylor was EVERYWHERE promoting just like Rihanna. Only thing is her album wasnt delayed and its multi platinum????????????

      • DDot May 30, 2015

        Feeling Myself actually re entered the chart last week at #39, so…….

  2. KingCalio May 30, 2015

    Aaliyah ???????????????????????????????? Definitely gone wayyyyyyyyyyy too soon. The void she left in music can still be felt 14 years later….RIP!

  3. AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig May 30, 2015

    It’s official, TGJ are being bribed or funded by Rita Oral’s management, which is why we have a post dedicated to a lyric video hitting 1 million views LOL (how basic!). As for Elijah, someone on the TGJ panel clearly has a crush on him, and it’s clear TGJ want to have a publicised beef with Rihanna so she will give them a phone interview (which will never happen).

    • Amana May 30, 2015

      But King David likes Rihanna so I don’t see why he you think he would shade her. He’s definitely working with/for Rita though. soMEONE TOLD ME THEYRE FROM THE SAME HOOD IN LONDON SO S*** MAKES A LOTTA SENSE.

      • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig May 30, 2015

        @Amana It’s more complicated than that. Sam has been angling for a Beyonce phone interview for ages (he’s met Kelly and Michelle before, and he’s even met bey’s choreographer and main dancer) . Since he can’t get Beyonce, he wants to get the second person that he blogs the most about which is Rihanna. So Sam positions the Rihanna posts from a shady PeresHylton/WendyWilliams perspective, so that TGJ will get a reputation for shading Rihanna, and therefore Rihanna’s people will want to talk to him to silence the rumours. David however throws a spanner in the works because he makes unbiased posts, which ruins Sam’s strategy (hence him deleting the Rihanna home post).

      • Molly May 30, 2015

        Spill the tea new wig kii

  5. HistoRih May 30, 2015

    David better stan for the Queen! And did I say see a Lil Trim stan talking about people not happening? Oh girl, where is that omeback album boo?

    • Lil Kim thee ONLY QB May 30, 2015

      Lil Kim may not be happening now but her career has lasted a good 15 years. More than most rappers I might add. Stop trolling boo. Kim has Malaysian furs that cost more than ur mommas faux Gucci.

  6. Ms Beykim wants Bieber,One Direction,Miley Cyrus,Gaga and Beyonce (I wanna marry Bieber) May 30, 2015

  7. BeyRihLiyah May 30, 2015

    • BeyRihLiyah May 30, 2015

    • Alex May 30, 2015

      Feeling myself is a top 40 hit with a tidal exclusive and bbhmm has yet to out chart 7/11. U tried it! ????????????

    • Print May 30, 2015

      Kiii too bad that ***************************** u stan for has 0,1% to sell 100k

    • Rosie May 30, 2015

      Good for Rih! Now let’s talk about the fact that Big Bird can’t even get 20K views on YouTube for her first song in 5 years.

  9. Danny May 30, 2015

    Nobody else think it’s weird how the two people David has been force feeding us are popping off at the same time. Those labels must be paying his biased ass a pretty penny to promote.

  10. Ms Beykim wants Bieber,One Direction,Miley Cyrus,Gaga and Beyonce (I wanna marry Bieber) May 30, 2015

    I love Beyonce and Rita and I love their songs poison. As for Aaliyah,she is beyond overhyped. Nobody rod with her before her death tbh. I’m sick of her family acting like she is was mj and Elvis rolled in one with Selena as a bow. They better stop acting like she was all that & I’m sick of it. They want her to be more respected that Luther V who did more. Aaliyah can fall back

      • Ms Beykim wants Bieber,One Direction,Miley Cyrus,Gaga and Beyonce (I wanna marry Bieber) May 30, 2015

        Britney got that in the bag and people actually liked her before her death. That girl would have beena hhas been and you shall deal

      • BeyRihLiyah May 30, 2015

        hoeeee shut the hell up she still was called it before death 🙂

    • Regina George May 31, 2015

      Beylimp clearly wants a reaction from Aaliyah Stan’s. HOOOOOO sit down and seethe… Bc beyond this blog no one even knows you and no one even cares to kno you… pathetic mongrel… Got the nerve to mention Aaliyah negatively with Miley Cyrus listed as yo point of inspiration… Chile sit on a foam finger bc that’s the only action you will ever see as you sit behind your screen ordering mumu’s and lookin for the release date of the next lil Debbie snack cake…

  11. Kerimel Dream May 30, 2015

    So all those views couldn’t get Rihanna a hit? I’;m scrying. And David, you think we don’t know you’ve been Olivia Poping for Rita in her time of crisis. Get money boo boo.
    When it comes to AALIYAH I HAVE TO SAY THIS. Beyonce wouldn’t have a career if she was still around because Aaliyah was doing everything in 01 Beyonce started doing in 02.
    She couldn’t even outsell Ashanti back then so how could she compete with Aaliyah?

    • BeyRihLiyah May 30, 2015

  17. Ms Beykim wants Bieber,One Direction,Miley Cyrus,Gaga and Beyonce (I wanna marry Bieber) May 30, 2015

    Let me spill the tea which y’all better sip on. If Aaliyah was still around she would be around Keri level depending on handouts and government food stamps while both looking like bird. They would both be cutting coupons and pictures of themselves of weekly newspapers to relive their dead careers

    • BeyRihLiyah May 30, 2015

  23. Rosie May 30, 2015

    dhfjdjdn @ “Comment deleted.” being all throughout this page.
    Rita will never make it outside of England. They’re trying so hard to push that Empire song too but it’s also a bomb considering how hard it is for it to get radio play and sales while “You’re So Beautiful” got both effortlessly with just a single episode. She’s already seen as a joke over in America (see the ASAP Rocky thing).

  26. RihNavy May 30, 2015

    The irony of David monitoring everyone’s comments in these last 3 post and deleting them, but you can barely even monitor the same child m*lesting trolls and fake accounts on this website WITHOUT one of us having to @ you on Twitter or on a post to do so. And Sam you’re just as bad, and y’all’s journalism isn’t even REAL journalism anymore, it’s lazy and instead of being unbiased and doing a blog for the love of it, y’all have basically sold your morals for money, and that’s why y’all have YET to book an A-LIST celebrity for an interview, now THAT’S the REAL KII.

    • Lake Erie May 30, 2015

      I keep seeing child m***** talk on here. Who are yal talking about? And what happened?

  33. Taylor swifts number 1 fan!! May 30, 2015

    WW sales: @taylorswift13, “1989” 76,000 (7,311,000 total


        To be completely honest, Taylor Swift, America’s current sweetheart, must not only slay in record sales but also the bedroom. How else can she have all of those 35+ men going crazy for her and coming right back for seconds? Her v***** must have super powers or great elasticity and tightness to satisfy those men.

    I actually like Rita Ora. But, she should do something that makes her different from all the other pop girls that top 40 is saturated with. Change her image. We really don’t know anything about her or her persona. Oh well, she’s just starting out and I’m sure she’ll get better with time.i love poison!

  36. RihNavy May 30, 2015

    Gwen FLOPFANI FAN you unoriginal, minimal talent-when it comes to throwing shade-peanut pea sized brain ass hœ. I don’t know if you left your relaxer on your scalp too long or if the bleach just seeped through your skull but I feel bad for you. It’s sad when you think you’re reading on a rainbow, but the kii is, instead of their being a pot of gold at the end…there’s…trash and utter filth, much like you’re decimated walls. Now, I would go in further, but I can’t seem to find COD, Cares on Delivery form to send these f*cks your way…wait, OOPS! I dropped them, guess I don’t have any.
