#R8 Revival? Rihanna Shoots New Video

Published: Wednesday 29th Jul 2015 by Sam

As major Pop campaigns go, few can rival the unmitigated mess that has been Rihanna‘s eighth album push.

Pretentious singles have been met with a muted response from the masses, while the project’s one impactful cut ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’ serves as the polar opposite of meaningful material the model mused about making this go round.

Nonetheless, the saga continues.

With murmurs of a Q3/Q4 roll-out, it appears the 27-year-old is pressing ahead with what will be music video number four.

Details below…

Today on Twitter, actor Michael Ian Black revealed he’s shooting a visual with the star:

As shocking as the era has been, we are intrigued to see how Team Rih will clean up the mess on Aisle R8.

At this point, some kind of “New Rules” approach to the roll-out must be on the cards to distract from the bumps that defined the road to the release. And even then, we’re not convinced that will be enough to salvage the situation

Still, being the fair and unbiased outlet we are, we’ll wait to see wagwan.

      U better grab more copies of Jacked so it can pass 50K instead of popcorn u pathetic cúńț ass ho.

        Navy is mad Rihanna album is shelved kiiii

  2. Jessica July 29, 2015

    NO ONE cares anymore. Shes done.

    • Pray for #R8 July 29, 2015

      Yeah, I agree. it’s too late. FFS was underwhelming. AO was a bonafide flop. And The BBHMM video barely did anything for its chart positioning, after one week it’s back to tumbling down billboard. So, who knows how R8 will sell? Maybe she could cling to holiday sales as usual. Pray for #R8

    • Cupid July 29, 2015

      No one cares but yet she’s going to be the top streamed female artist again this year… FFS is still doing good WW and BBHMM is going platinum. That’s GREAT for an urban single.

      • WOW July 29, 2015

        The fact that I had to think for a good minute what ‘FFS’ stood for and i love rihanna proves this era is over before it started.. She should have did a surprise drop– cuz i would have bought it tbh.. but now if she releases with ALL those songs i already heard, ill maybe just jam to it on Apple music.

    • Rihboy July 29, 2015

      No one cares yet she carries this sight! This sight is nothing without a post about Rihanna. Girl bye! You hags will be posted when she drops analyzing everything. Scurrying here to try and get a free listen. Only to be turned down by false links or reported links. We all know most of you haters purchase and rihpurchase. the haters are seated before the fans in most cases. Why act brand new? This sight isn’t anything without Rihanna. Ask slay flop! She lives for her. Since her face gives her nothing at all to gravel about????

    • Faf July 30, 2015

      Exactly 4 singles and 7 songs no release

  3. Molly July 29, 2015

    She’s so lost musically.. She needs an era like LOUD again or she’ll up being Gaga 2.0

    • Chaelin Lee (p.k.a – CL) is coming | 재 이현 김 July 29, 2015

      EVERYTHING is better than going down Ciara lane. Back to back flops #Labelless in 3 years time

  4. Molly July 29, 2015

    Actually she’ll be Gaga 3.0 cause Nicki already got that 2.0 title Kiii

    • Pu$$y Juice Lover July 29, 2015

      Excuse me cúńť , but can you tell me why Jill Scott outsold Jacked?

  5. x_x July 29, 2015

    The writing on this blog is awful. No use of any grammatical authority. Just a bunch of loose fingers stampeding across a keyboard. “Dis is da forf album from da mess.”

    • Slay_Hive July 29, 2015

      ????????^^^^ Mad Rihanna fan!

      • x_x July 29, 2015

        i would strongly advice a Beyonce fan NOT comment when concerning grammatical proficiency.

        Do yourself that favor, baby girl.

      • x_x July 29, 2015

        advise*

      • Slay_Hive July 29, 2015

        Lol biitch stfu. I would advise you to spell words correctly the first time when trying to shade someone’s grammar!

      • Pray for #R8 July 29, 2015

        @x_x … Lmao. That wasn’t the only grammatical error you wrote in your comment. Make sure you have your GED before you try to come for someone else’s grammar. Sad. Pray for the youth at risk everybody. That they may learn to capitalize letters, use correct punctuation, and write in complete thoughts rather than fragments. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

      • Slay_Hive July 29, 2015

        Lmaoo Are we really having a grammar discussion on an urban blog though? It’s that serious eh??! ???? Classic navy way at detracting from their fave’s STRUGGLE! Shouldn’t you be somewhere grading kindergarten papers grandma?? FOH

  6. Rihnation July 29, 2015

    Just scrap the album and start over Rih, I wanna see her win but R8 so far is sounding like Unapolegetic pt2.She’s having trouble trying to find herself this era.There is no direction for this album it sounds like Rihanna music on shuffle. This video she shooting will determine the fate of R8.

    • Cupid July 29, 2015

      How do you know she’s struggling to find herself musically? she doesn’t seem bothered to me.

  7. Monica Stan July 29, 2015

    Poor little tink tink still trying find a song that sticks. That Rihanna reign has officially let up. She had a great run.

    • Pu$$y Juice Lover July 29, 2015

      Nigxa u better pray Monica will push 12k first week.

    • BeyRihLiyah July 29, 2015

      Monica never had any reign and that hood rat have been done since 1998

      • Monica Stan July 29, 2015

        RihYAWNna could only wish to have a career spanning 20 years #LEGEND pay homage b****

  8. truther July 29, 2015

    Taylor Swift raised the bar for pop music, that’s why R8 is struggling

  9. Slay_Hive July 29, 2015

    ???????????????? Death @ revival. Jesus himself couldn’t save this pathetic era..UNLESS he turned her into Taylor Swift OR gave her 5% of Beyoncé’s talent! ????????????

    • Monica Stan July 29, 2015

      Kii.

  10. Chaelin Lee (p.k.a – CL) is coming | 재 이현 김 July 29, 2015

  11. Vegeta, Prince of Slayans July 29, 2015

    The word “walls” is used way too much in this blog, why can’t y’all be original.

  12. Chaelin Lee (p.k.a – CL) is coming | 재 이현 김 July 29, 2015

    Fine, why does beyonce wear such revealing clothes especially when it can’t contain her cervix which is tragically close to dropping to the floor?

    • Vegeta, Prince of Slayans July 29, 2015

      Thank you

    • Tyler Makivelli July 29, 2015

      Why does Rihanna always feel the need to expose her mosquito bites when shes built like a 12 year old prepubescent boy, Kim Jong Un????

  13. Bb8345 July 29, 2015

    I’m not a big Rihanna fan but I feel that she needs to really be more structured with this album because it sounds like she’s just releasing music and videos and I feel the anticipation is going down.

    • Molly July 29, 2015

      It is sis…. no one cares except the ling ling stan and BoyPussyLover

      • Pu$$y Juice Lover July 29, 2015

        No one cares? Girl how da f** u allow to run your aíđś infected mouth about the queen while Jacked opened with #19k.

  17. truther July 29, 2015

    Rihanna needs to do more features and collab with other artist more, she need to take notes from Breezy he been on everyone song lately,she needs the exposure for this album cause it seems like the public just don’t care for her anymore

  18. what now July 29, 2015

  20. ratedxxx July 29, 2015

    meh….how can something that doesn’t exist be called a flop?

    ok her singles havent hit numero uno..isn’t that a good thing..you people always accused her of being a single artist and a puppet

    so when her singles were hitting numero uno left and right ..she was a flop..now her singles are not number 1 she’s still a flop

    make up yall minds

  21. ratedxxx July 29, 2015

    it’s amazing how her non fans are more concerned about a “flop” album that hasnt been dropped yet….

    like I said meh

    • Keri Qween July 29, 2015

      They want it to flop like 4closure . they’re still mad about that underperforming era

      • Slay_Hive July 29, 2015

        If 4 is a flop, what the hell does that make Skeri’s discography?? Seriously?! Lmaoo At this rate, RL8 will be lucky to see 4’s sales! Stfu

  22. Molly July 29, 2015

    I can’t wait for R8 to sell less copies than pink print.

    • what now July 29, 2015

  24. Rosie July 29, 2015

    Wasn’t Bird Bïtch exposed as a troll the other night by Sam or whoever moderates the comments? Why is it so bothered? There’s barely any Hive here.
    Anyways, this era really just proved that she cannot afford to take a break that long because her stanbase doesn’t support her enough without her singles being on the radio at least 8 months out of the year. If this flops she needs to scrap this album for good.

    • what now July 29, 2015

      Has Lana went Patron Platinum yet?

      • Keri Qween July 29, 2015

        Screams@ what now!!!

      • Rosie July 29, 2015

        Can Rihfund even release its album? Kii at how this prostitute b**** was forced back into the studio like a SLAVE to Roc Nation.

        Bird Bïtch, why are you “screaming” at anything? The only thing you need to be “screaming” at is your fave’s YouTube views.
        Keri Hilson – Scream [NEW 2015] – 5,364 views
        Keri Hilson – Scream [DOWNLOAD LINK] – 4,404 views

      • Rosie July 29, 2015

        LMAO what kind of self drag f**? Still clinging to No Sales Allowed BARELY selling 300K in 2010?
        Isn’t Bird releasing an album next month? S*** won’t even sell 5K first week.

    • Rosie July 29, 2015

      Yet Ultraviolence, which apparently “flopped” outsold Bird’s discography worldwide? LMAO at the Navi being forced to kiss Keri’s ass because she can get an album out unlike Herprihs.

      Where is Barbadian Monoxide? Has it even outsold West Coast?
      Where is that joint tour with Kanye?

    @WHAT NOW Girl you are ON POINT today!! You had me on the floor sis

  31. Ty July 29, 2015

    I think rih and her team know if she scrapes this album it’s game over for her, she has limited talent and the s***/ shock factor image has worn of….unfortunately her trying to look and sound more mature is not translating well with public! She might as well just release the album take the flop and start again. Also she needs to strengthen her brand outside of music because once she hits 30 all that p**** patting will be a non-starter. Her relying to much on her s*** image was only ever going to work till about 25 yrs old after that not so much.

  32. Pu$$y Juice Lover July 29, 2015

    Hi my name is MOLLY. Im clinging to the hive ao they wont drag my fave , because my fave is a DUMB FLOP BITTCH whos last 4 damn albums dont comple to one million copies!!

        Girl, i fukkd with yo ass last year, and i stayed cool on every ciara post even tho she was and atill is a FLOP ass bitcch, but then you started to go IN on Rih on every damn post and dared coming for her while unapologetic outsold all of 4 of ciaras last albums. U were being shady and fake.

      • Pu$$y Juice Lover July 29, 2015

    • what now July 29, 2015

      You cling harder than the North and South poles to their respective magnetic zones, but that’s a read reserved for those who did well in physics.

        Janet’s a legend, she doesn’t make music for charts and kids

      • Molly July 29, 2015

        Lana can use the same excuse then her songs are less commercial than Janets sis.

      • Keri Qween July 29, 2015

        Janet is wayyy out of her prime. Lana is at her commercial peak, there’s a difference. No one expects Janet to get a #1 single at her age making adult contemporary music

    • what now July 29, 2015

      @Keri, KIIII exactly, and that’s exactly what Milly is, a kid.

    • Rosie July 29, 2015

      Meanwhile Keri Hilson has yet to see the inside of any Billboard chart since early 2011.

  37. Pu$$y Juice Lover July 29, 2015

    That canadian trick is plain delusional. I literally heared her song Brooklyn Hooker on an elavtor a few weeks ago lmfao

    • what now July 29, 2015

      Shejhejejejejej! *plays Higher by Rihanna instead*

    • Keri Qween July 29, 2015

      Kiiii her music is boring and basic. Her fans must be drunk like her to listen to that garbage

      • Rosie July 29, 2015

        At least Lana has fans.
        Dead at Bird resorting to becoming an Instagram that a la Justine Skye or that Niykee Heaton h** just to get a few write-ups on RäpUp or B*****. Isn’t it supposed to be releasing an album next month. Will it even do Nelly Furtado #s?

      • Rosie July 29, 2015

        *thot

    • Rosie July 29, 2015

      Is that supposed to be a drag? You gotta come harder.

      • Pu$$y Juice Lover July 29, 2015

        Ok . Artpop outsold Ultradrunk. Oh and west coast dropped out the charts after a week.

      • Rosie July 29, 2015

        …and Lana can STILL get a release date without slaving to her record label, something Herprihs cannot do in 2015.
        Dead at IT still being afraid to release nearly eight months later. And yet NOBODY cares. It won’t even outsell Ass To Mouth or even the Plasticprint at this point.

      • Pu$$y Juice Lover July 29, 2015

        She will release it ho. And it will outsell Ultrafuck and your entire broke ass life u canadian trick. Why did West Coast drpped outta the charts after a week? Why did Ultrafuk struggled dor gold? Why is her only top 10 a remix while adele has number one singles?

      • Rosie July 29, 2015

        Why hasn’t Barbadian Monoxide outsold West Coast with NCAA March Madness promo and a high budget music video?
        Why doesn’t R8PE have an release date after all this so-called “slayage” from FFSTD & BBHMM?
        Why does literally no one outside of the Navi care about the fact that the so-called “biggest pop star in the world” doesn’t even have an album release date?
        Where is that joint tour with Kanye?
        Death at people caring more about her ugly try-hard ass outfits than her music. Might as well retire from music and stick to “modeling” for good.

    I can post 10 Rihanna post from this site and they’re all written exactly the SAME. Someone needs to expand their extremely limited writing. Replace Rihanna with Rita and then you have an accurate post.

    Yall really think Rihanna is going to flop lol. She’s one hit from being on top, two and R8 will be platinum.

    This era has been a complete and utter mess. Its so sparse and disorganized, she relies/ed too much on sēx appeal, just like Jlo and look where its gotten her at the age of 46. Stop prancing around, making silly music videos and get back to the Loud era; clearly that was her last ‘major’ commercial success since GGGB.

    Interesting another single? That’s very odd, team Rihanna needs to realize that only a release date will bring back interest to this project.

    Some don’t have the ability to have sympathy. Read a recent article where she clears thing up: “i’m detoxifying before this release.”
