Adele Explains Stance On Streaming After Making ’25’ Unavailable On Demand

Published: Tuesday 1st Dec 2015 by Sam

Adele‘s ’25’ is smashing something serious in its second week on sale.

The album is benefitting in earnest from the singer’s rejection of streaming services. Indeed, as at writing, the ‘Hello’ led LP is capitalising on its immense buzz by being only available to buy. No Spotify, no Apple Music, no Tidal.

With streaming now factoring into chart positions, many have been wondering why the Brit-bred belter has adopted such a position.

Wonder no more, because the songbird has spilled on her stance.

More below…

Speaking to Rolling Stone, the 27-year-old explained:

“[Streaming] probably is the future, but, eh. There are kids I know who are, like, nine who don’t even know what a fucking CD is! I’ve got my CDs out on display in my house just to prove a point. Maybe CDs will have a massive comeback like vinyl did. Actually I think cassettes, just to be a pain in the ass! [Laughs] I’ve got all my Destiny’s Child cassettes!”

Fascinating.

It’s great to see an artist take a stand for what they believe in.

Adele’s words once again crack open the debate surrounding streaming. What’s your take on music on demand: help or hindrance?

Your thoughts?

    She’s just greedy. She just wants more money

    • Boykin December 1, 2015

      Sit down, you complete imbecile.

  2. Let’s Be Real December 1, 2015

    Destiny’s Child was on cassette????man…maybe I’m .I have the CDs…but I agree.eff a stream. People get so happy with streaming lol imo streaming is popular for artist who’s fans don’t buy their albums.Adele has no worries of that

    • PJ December 1, 2015

      I got The Writing’s on The Wall and Survivor on cassettes 😛

    • suckingyoutonight December 2, 2015

      I remember hearing bills bills bills on tape with my sisters & her friends they played it over & over & over it was a moment I will never forget I wish cds or tapes would make a comeback music was more exciting that way

      • truth(Janet is QWEEN, was a hot MaDINOSAUR is a flop! Deal!) December 2, 2015

        Cocksucka

  3. HailBeysus December 1, 2015

    Lmao I got all my Destinys Child cassettes! I love me some Adele!!

    • truth(Janet is QWEEN, was a hot MaDINOSAUR is a flop! Deal!) December 2, 2015

      Bey could NEVER sell like Adele…NEVAAAH!!!

  4. Casual December 1, 2015

    Destiny’s Child came on the scene long after the cassettes era. But whatever . . .
    .
    Misleading title. Adele revealed nothing about her label’s decision to not release 25 for streaming. They make almost nothing from streaming and lots from sales. Hence, no streaming. This isn’t hard.

    • JazThatBoi December 1, 2015

      DC came out in 1998. Cassettes were def still around. They were starting to get phased out around that time. U act like she said she had Cater 2 U on cassette ???

      • Casual-T December 2, 2015

        No, they started to phase cassettes out in the early 90s, and they were mostly gone by the mid-90s.

    • Faf December 2, 2015

      Their self titled album with all 4 girls was on cassette

  5. DIABETES UNBOTHERED December 1, 2015

    I like how Adele makes no secret of being a BEY stan… even went to the roseland show for 4 with a capacity of only 2,500. Idk why but im starting to appreciate the IASF album more out of nowhere… even tho its beys least best it had the potential to be her best if only she spent more time recording that album could have been POP PERFECTION

  6. cocobutta December 1, 2015

    I love having phyical copies of albums. Adele has that kind of buzz where the buying public don’t mind going out to stores or buying online CD’s.

    With some artist streaming and social networking era had made their promoting skills very lazy and lacklustre, when it should be used as an additional platform rather than a main platform to promote.

    Different strokes for different folks I guess but glad she took that stance.

  7. Slay_Hive December 1, 2015

    You better stan Adele. I have all of my Destiny Child’s CD’s as well.. I understand what she means by streaming. MOst of these girls would be nothing without streaming services. Hopefully Beyonce does the same thing with her next album. Make it hard out here for these tired singles artist and their tricks to maintain some type of relevancy in this changing industry. Demand your coin!!

    • King Mark111 /.\ December 1, 2015

      I’m sorry for killing you in that last post. Today is your day, happy world a*** day! May your T cell count stay high.

      • HailBeysus December 1, 2015

        Go away closeted f@ggg! Its clear you’re kock is dripping pre k** for Slay-Hive. But Slay-Hive wants none of it. Stop the desperation please before you’re clocked for a millionth post in a row ????

      • Slay_Hive December 1, 2015

        Lmaoo u killed me but you’re still seething in a new post?? That delayed album got u hoess delusional AF????

  8. No favs, just here for the music December 1, 2015

    I totally agree with her. It was also a smart move. Streaming should never=sales imo

  9. AnnaliseKeatingsBoxBraids December 1, 2015

    Lol yas Slaydele! My mama had the DC casette with the slow version of No No No and it was a TUNE.

    _____
    I’ve never been into buying albums on itunes for the same price as a physical CD (which I can subsequently burn on all of my devices). Streaming on the other hand is another story.

  10. Ciah’s Turtle December 1, 2015

    im happy for her success.. but im tired of TGJ and the redundancy

  11. 2bad2bme December 1, 2015

    I love how she loves black musicians (background singers, band, video cameos) she is bringing back black r&b

    • OMG Logic!!! December 2, 2015

      Why can’t they just be background singers, a band, and actors? Why do they have to be BLACK? Why is a person’s race so important to constantly bring up?

      And there is no such thing as a color type of R&B

      • 2bad2bme December 2, 2015

        Gurl your dumb. Stop living in la la land full of rainbow skittle skies and laffy taffy smiles!

  12. xedos December 1, 2015

    the funny thing is when Jay Z started tidal everyone went for his head wen he was the only one paying artist a good rate for their music. some people were mad that tidal has no free service. no you have everyone praising Taylor swift and now Adel for saying the same thing Jay Z was taking about

    • HailBeysus December 1, 2015

      No lies were spoken! Where is Jay-z praise for taking a stand for artist!?!?!?

      • Real love December 1, 2015

        Its simple, people won’t give Jay-Z praise because he’s black..

    • OMG Logic!!! December 2, 2015

      Why would you praise an inferior business model? He was literally screwing the customer when that customer could get that same service on Spotify for a much better rate.
      Adele isn’t screwing anyone over. People are welcome to wait for her to allow her album to be streamed which she’s said she’ll eventually allow. Hell, they can even illegally download it. Her position is completely optional whereas Jay-Z is offering a worse option than what is already available.

  13. Real love December 1, 2015

    Its simple, people won’t give Jay-Z praise because he’s black.

    • Jay December 1, 2015

      But wasn’t it mostly black people that was talking down Tidal??!

      • Real love December 1, 2015

        Because most black people don’t like seeing other black people succeed, nor do most of them support their own.

      • R0YALTY December 1, 2015

        Tidal has a little over one million subscribers and blacks are only 13% of the American population. I don’t think we are the main culprit here. Tidal dropped at a time where Pandora and Spotify were booming. Now Apple Music is here so people definitely aren’t going to download Tidal. Truth is, Jay Z did nothing to appeal to the average music listener. The roll out sucked. He got a bunch of rich celebrities together for a press conference who looked like they were signing the constitution. Jay and Beyonce are GODS in the black community, only next to Obama so take that s*** elsewhere.

      • Real love December 2, 2015

        You can stay mad all you want, but it’s blatantly obvious how our community treats itself. With that, goodnight.

      • R0YALTY December 2, 2015

        Oh ok well if that’s the case why are so many of our movies, television shows and businesses doing well? People support what they chose to. Period. I’m not supporting something just because there’s a black face attached to it. Tidal would need more than black peoples support to be successful. 😉

    • I LOVE MARIAH December 2, 2015

      THATS B******* BECAUSE THE MEDIA IS ALWAYS SO FAR UP BEYONCE AND JAY Z ASS LIKE THEY CAN DO NO WRONG. TIDAL WAS SIMPLY A FAILED BUSINESS DEAL

    • OMG Logic!!! December 2, 2015

      Or because Tidal was an awful business decision? “Black people don’t like to see other Black people succeed..,” but they sure do like to make excuses using the race card at every possible chance to explain how Black artists aren’t as successful.

      • I LOVE MARIAH December 2, 2015

        AND I BET HALF OF THESE MOFOS DONT HAVE TIDAL THEMSELVES. THE GP HAS SPOKEN & NOBODY WANTS IT.

  14. King Mark111 /.\ December 1, 2015

    You can sell your product anyway you want.

    • ?Queen Molly? December 1, 2015

      And you cant stfu pussay ass b****!!!

  15. sour grape December 1, 2015

    i want her album on cassette. nope? x)

  16. LB December 1, 2015

    You can pay for music all you want, I’ll keep my Spotify premium account which has given me access to more music than I could have ever thought I’d have access too.

    I have listened to more music thanks to my Spotify premium account than I ever have when I used to buy it off of iTunes.

    Thanks to my Spotify premium account, I am even listening to the old classics and have saved myself the coin from buying poor albums.

    The only CD I am buying this year is ANTI, everything else will have to be streamed first before I make a conscious decision that it is worth buying.

    By the way, I will only buy 25 after I hear the whole of it on Spotify and not before.

    • King Mark111 /.\ December 1, 2015

      Same here. Sure some artist don’t need to have their albums on stream, but most are lucky if i even click on their music.

    • OMG Logic!!! December 2, 2015

      I’d trust someone of Adele’s caliber to deliver quality music before I’d trust someone like Rihanna before blindly purchasing an album. You of course may see things differently.

  17. R0YALTY December 2, 2015

    Truth of the matter is, there are so many ways to obtain music these days. We live in a digital age so stuff is available Much faster than it was in 2000. I have been hoodwinked into purchasing so many mediocre albums back in the day that I take full advantage of streaming now. I no longer care for physical copies of albums because they take up too much space. I just plug my AUX cord into my car and play music from my phone. I understand what Adele is saying but I decided not to purchase her album after hearing it in full on YouTube. Not that it matters anyway she’s still selling like a madwoman lol.

  18. .:: Centurion ::. December 2, 2015

    Beyoncé’s last three tours combined = 33 Stadium Dates
    ANTI world tour = 36 Stadium Dates
    https://t.co/eTM1vLaUu4

    • Larry December 2, 2015

      With all of those stadiums, she better outgross The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour and make history in the process. What would make her team confident enough to book so many stadiums and her music career is declining? Smart business move or nah? We’ll have to see. Giving ARtrave teas.

      • .:: Centurion ::. December 2, 2015

        Now what is this? Who are you? Who is this Larry? ??? What the phūck is wrong with the insects hiding behind random usernames? ? Don’t do that. Revealed yourself weak heaux ?

      • Larry December 2, 2015

        lol smh

      • .:: Centurion ::. December 2, 2015

        Yes Bye Bye

    • HailBeysus December 2, 2015

      Um this is a lie! What Navy stan forged these results. Beyonce has performed in 36 stadiums throughout her career. 15 on her own and an additional 21 with Jay.
      PS Larry is right she better outsell the Mrs Carter Tour with all them stadium dates included lol.

      • .:: Centurion ::. December 2, 2015

        Lies? SCREAMS! There’s a link. Did you not see the link? I didn’t create this. Truth hurts doesn’t it? ???

        All stadiums she has performed at as a solo act. Plus the 21 with Jau for a total of 26 dates. Again what Rihanna stan wrote those stats kiiii!!!

      • HailBeysus December 2, 2015

        Lol 26 i mean 36

    • OMG Logic!!! December 2, 2015

      Who the hell would go watch Rihanna live? I can’t possibly see the appeal much less the ability to sell out a stadium. She MUST be co-headlining with some other big artist.

      • .:: Centurion ::. December 2, 2015

        Coming from a Mariah stan, some who stays in one place all while singing? You would really call that entertaining? Rihanna’s may not be as good of a sing or dancer but she does BOTH at her concerts. I sorta like Mariah so don’t do it.

  19. Theman December 2, 2015

    The YouTube & aux cord ain’t the same as owning the actual album. The physical album is better in sound. Plus doing it through your phone can be janky sometimes. As far as streaming goes, it should be it’s own chart. Albums sale well when they are cheaper. Also, as a whole the physical album is stilly he most important in terms of actual albums. To those that care, you can purchase an album physically/digitally. So space isn’t an excuse. So, just buy the albums that interest you. It ain’t taking up that much space cheapskates. Streaming is overrated. You should have to pay for it. These artists work hard too. Lastly, Beyonce would have sold a Shyt ton of physical albums had she released her album regularly, heck she did outside of that anyway. Nothing compares to owning a physical album. Physical/Paid Downloads/Streaming can all exist to some capacity..

    • R0YALTY December 2, 2015

      Paying $12 for a download vs physical copy is the same thing genius. How does that make one a cheapskate? Preferring a digital over a physical copy is a preference. I don’t have time to fumble through cd towers or cd booklets for the car. That’s why *I* prefer digital copies sir. You sound silly.

  20. Theman December 2, 2015

    *Still The Most.

  21. Larry December 2, 2015

    Rihanna’s last three tour grosses combined =267,900,000
    Beyonce’s last three tour grosses combined = 448,339,309
    /
    The Mrs Carter Show nearly grossed more than three of Rihanna’s last tours combined. Who is really winning here? lol

    • .:: Centurion ::. December 2, 2015

      LOL. Did you factor in that Beybola does more shows stupid phāg?
      Rihanna ‘s last three tours = 259 shows
      Beyoncé’s last three tours = 336 shows
      #BeyHiveLogic 😆

      • Tyler Makiavelli December 2, 2015

        Are you seriously trying to argue that Rihannas tours gross more than Beyonce’s? Really?
        B****, dont make me shut you down.

      • .:: Centurion ::. December 2, 2015

        I dare you to try Larry I mean Tyler.

      • Tyler Makiavelli December 2, 2015

        Yeah, thats exactly what I thought b****. The Mrs Carter show is one of the top 3 highest grossing female tours in MUSIC HISTORY. Meanwhile, Rihanna’s shows can’t even outgross Taylor Swift’s.

      • .:: Centurion ::. December 2, 2015

        With 132 shows. Taylor recently wrapped up tour did that with 60 shows. ????

      • Tyler Makiavelli December 2, 2015

        Hold this L.

      • .:: Centurion ::. December 2, 2015

      • Tyler Makiavelli December 2, 2015

        She’s not a more successful tour act. That’s why you had to resort to lying.
        The Mrs Carter Show Grossings>>>>>>Every other female tour besides Madonna’s
        The Red Tour>>>>>The Cubic Zirconium Tour

      • .:: Centurion ::. December 2, 2015

        Literally screaming @ this b*tch. Where are the lies? Taylor swift whom you cling to slays Beybola – your main fav. ?

      • Tyler Makiavelli December 2, 2015

        They both slay Rihanna in every aspect. That’s why she’s current flopping. Where’s Anti?

      • Tyler Makiavelli December 2, 2015

        Why cant Rihanna do Beyonce numbers? She’s released MORE albums. So why is she behind her in overall sales? I’ll wait…

      • .:: Centurion ::. December 2, 2015

        But she does. Screaming @ “overall sales” when Rihanna outsold Beybola’s sales in less time. ?????

      • Tyler Makiavelli December 2, 2015

        The devil is a lie! Rihanna’s released 7 albums YET she’s only sold 10 mill in the states and 29 mill worldwide.
        Like Flop! Flop! Flop!

      • .:: Centurion ::. December 2, 2015

        Stop trying to act like Music of the Basin, A Flop Like Me, Good Girl Gone H**, Rated Flop, and Flop that Flop never happened boo. Rihanna has to release like a conveyer belt because her album sales suck.

      • .:: Centurion ::. December 2, 2015

        Rihanna has sold less and less with each album since Loud. I mean she’s never been an album seller and things are shaping up to be a huge flop for her next era.

      • .:: Centurion ::. December 2, 2015

        “Shes never been an album seller” Not when she sells millions of albums worldwide. What kind of logic? ???

      • Tyler Makiavelli December 2, 2015

        29 mill in a 10 year time span with 7 ALBUMS, is not impressive.

      • .:: Centurion ::. December 2, 2015

        SCREAMING @ the recycling. Receipt of 29 mill?

      • .:: Centurion ::. December 2, 2015

        Beyonce has 5 #1s. TRAGIC! A true definition of a flop biatch with no brand power.

      • Tyler Makiavelli December 2, 2015

        Remember that time you tried to claim that Rihanna sold 50 mill albums? LOL. I bet you feel really stupid now huh?

        Wow. Bish when? Receipt?

  22. HailBeysus December 2, 2015

    DEATH @CENTIPED hiding behind Taylor’s stats because it can’t shade The Queen in touring. Also Taylor’s tour stands at $217 million with 12 dates to go. Bringing her total to 85 dates not 60! I can’t with the Navy constantly forging these numbers hahahaha!!! Also makes sense for Taylor to be getting paid her tour is full of Stadiums. The Question Remains! WILL RIHANNA SEE THE $200 MILLION MARK THO!!?!?!?!?

    • Tyler Makiavelli December 2, 2015

      Hahaha is that a trick question?
      None of Rihanna’s tours have grossed 200 mill. The Cubic Zirconium Tour was her first time ever grossing 100+ mill .

      • HailBeysus December 2, 2015

      • Tyler Makiavelli December 2, 2015

        Unlike Rihanna, Beyonce doesn’t have to f*** for tracks or hand bags. She can afford to take a 2-3 year break between albums. That’s how she’s always been dumb ass.

      • .:: Centurion ::. December 2, 2015

        SCREAMING!!! Is that suppose to be a drag? That was terrible. Where’s Beybola’s music? It’s time. Sony got her on a manditory “leave” because of all funds going to the Adele campaign.

        How are you going to postpone something that doesn’t even exist yet? You deserved to be Chris Browned for that statement lmao.

        One word: Adele

  24. I LOVE MARIAH December 2, 2015

    ADELE IS COOL AND ALL BUT 25 REALLY ISNT THAT GREAT OF AN ALBUM. THE MEDIA MANIPULATED HER SALES FROM THE JUMP. THEY WERE PREDICTING 2 MILLION BEFORE THE ALBUM WAS RELEASED AND MORE PEOPLE RAN OUT TO BUY IT BECAUSE OF THE HYPE. NOT TAKING ANYTHING AWAY FROM HER TALENT BUT IDC IF I EVER HEAR ANYTHING ELSE ABOUT HER SALES

  25. HailBeysus December 2, 2015

    Hahahaha I can’t with Centiped giving its trolling formula away lawlz!!!
    PS Bey releases albums every 3 years its not uncommon. Besides where barley coming up on the 2yr mark for her self-titled, unlike Rihanna who has everyone do the work for Her. Song writers to write her lyrics, producer’s to mix her tracks, and a computer to fix and enhance that voice hahaha!!!!

  26. .:: Centurion ::. December 2, 2015

    Notice how I pay the avi-less random troll dust? LMFAO. I cannot with this weak kiii and its secondary usernames. ???

    • Tyler Makiavelli December 2, 2015

      Looks like you’ve taken a page out of Rihanna’s book. She’s been paying the Nay dust for the past 6 months now lol.
      Where’s Anti?

      • Tyler Makiavelli December 2, 2015

        *Navy kii

      • .:: Centurion ::. December 2, 2015

        Huh? I took a page from the book of Rihanna…??? You’re making no sense now. You’re so tired and in need of a new wig. You’re boring me.

      • Tyler Makiavelli December 2, 2015

        And you need to open go open up that AntiDiary app. You might just wake up to a released album.

      • .:: Centurion ::. December 2, 2015

        There is no AntiDiary app. ? The scalping you’re receiving must have you hallucinating. ANTI still being recorded. SCREAMING @ the recycling drags ? – a true definition of a weak kii. Still waiting for a receipt of Beybola selling more records than Rihanna. You best hire a journalist to investigate. ???

      • Tyler Makiavelli December 2, 2015

        “Still recording” kiii. In other words, its been pusehd back. You people will believe anything! Are you and Rihanna smoking from the same pipe?

      • .:: Centurion ::. December 2, 2015

        WTF? That’s what she said. She’s said she’ll release it when it’s done. Were you brēast-feed as a crāck baby?

      • Tyler Makiavelli December 2, 2015

        Her first single came out in JANUARY you stupid bum b****. It should have been released by now. Too bad “25” has her shook

      • .:: Centurion ::. December 2, 2015

        LOL. Did you forget that she on her own record label and owns her masters? Rihanna’s her boss and will release on her own time. Meanwhile Beybola is in the Sony music HQ boardroom, on her knees begging for her music to be put out. ???

        “Shes

      • Tyler Makiavelli December 2, 2015

        Where’s Anti?

      • .:: Centurion ::. December 2, 2015

        Still being recorded. Where’s Beybola’s hit?

      • Tyler Makiavelli December 2, 2015

        Where’s Rihanna’s? Almost a YEAR since her first single. And still NoRihleaseDate

      • .:: Centurion ::. December 2, 2015

        FFS and BBHMM say hi. Now where’s Beybola’s?

      • Tyler Makiavelli December 2, 2015

        I like how you conveniently left out Barbadian Monoxide lol. How are you going to release THREE offical singles to radio and still not have a release date to show for it 1 YEAR later? She’s just as stupid as you are.

      • .:: Centurion ::. December 2, 2015

        What stupid is why you keeping coming for me and getting dragged by your custom-made pubic hair wigs.

  27. OMG Logic!!! December 2, 2015

    I’m dumbfounded to find out that Rihanna somehow books stadiums… She can barely speak much less sing. She’s about as energetic at the beginning of her show as Mariah is after an 18 song set. Like WTF is the god damn appeal of seeing Rihanna live??? For Christ’s sake she lip syncs songs that have the difficulty of a conversation. She doesn’t spend a dime on bringing a good stage setup; she brings the bare bones stage.

    Is she co-headlining with Paul McCartney or something? HOW THE F UCK IS RIHANNA BOOKING STADIUMS!?!?

  28. Tyler Makiavelli December 2, 2015

    @Centurion
    Have you heard “Hello”? Shhh if you listen closely you can hear Rihanna’s career ending in the background.

    • .:: Centurion ::. December 2, 2015

      Oh? I thought she ended Beybola with 4closure. She has since not gotten a hit thus her attempts to go Pop. ???

  29. HailBeysus December 2, 2015

    Lawlz says it pays me dust but clearly everyone has seen it reply to me in this thread and others. I can’t with that f@ggg getting his life on music blog just because he has an Avi ???????
    Also notice how it doesn’t respond when i post all the stadiums bey had performed in during her last 3 tours.
    I can’t with the navy and their forged numbers LMFAO!!!
    Asking if i read the receipt. Bitxh that was no receipt. It came from twitter by an account name called Shady Music Facts lol! They def shady cause they was downplaying Beys dates! Nice try but try again!

  30. Tyler Makiavelli December 2, 2015

    Can we all have a moment of silence for Centurion’s hairline and Rihanna’s dead ass career!?
    LET THE CHURCH SAY AMEN!

    • HailBeysus December 2, 2015

      (Whitney voice) Praise God!!! Have mercy on his edgeless demonic soul!
      ⛪⛪⛪???

      • Tyler Makiavelli December 2, 2015

        Edges to edges, dust to dust!

    • OMG Logic!!! December 2, 2015

      “and Rihanna’s dead ass career” are you suggesting Rihanna’s hair line is somehow still in the land of the living?

      • Tyler Makiavelli December 2, 2015

        No, her edges are pushed back further than Anti’s release date.

      • .:: Centurion ::. December 2, 2015

        SCREAMING!!! ??? Tyler tries to hard. It needs to investigate why Sony refuses to put out Beybola’s music out.

      • Tyler Makiavelli December 2, 2015

        @Centurion
        You need to investigate Rihanna’s album release date.

      • .:: Centurion ::. December 2, 2015

        Oh Jesus. The album iiiiiisss ssstttiiiiil buh-e-yiiing riiiii(e)-cooooorrrr-dddddd-eeeeeeddd. ? https://www.hookedonphonics.com

      • Tyler Makiavelli December 2, 2015

        She used Chris Brown’s fist for relevancy in the past. She should give hime a call this era. Maybe he can help her LOL

      • .:: Centurion ::. December 2, 2015

        You’re still boping to Struggle Ladies. No wonder you’re so stressed.

      • Tyler Makiavelli December 2, 2015

        And you’re probably still bopping to the sounds of Bobby Beige’s Fist hitting Rihanna’s FourFiveHead

      • .:: Centurion ::. December 2, 2015

        Oh… you mean the single which outsold every song on Self-titled, including SIut in Love?

  31. Tyler Makiavelli December 2, 2015

    Anti’s probably been pushed back further than Lil Wayne’s Carter 5 album

  32. HailBeysus December 2, 2015

    Kiii the K** Swallowers always coming for Bey’s featured tracks when she’s only been featured on 22 tracks throughout her entire 18 year career. Meanwhile Thotanna has been featured on 26 in her 10 year career ????? better sit down and realize who truly clings to artist for relevancy.

  33. .:: Centurion ::. December 2, 2015

    ??? Welp!!! Its got its avi-less troll acc to co-sign itself back. Oh Tyler. I’m gonna keep this b*tch up all night. ???

    • Tyler Makiavelli December 2, 2015

      You need to keep a job.

      • .:: Centurion ::. December 2, 2015

        Weak kiii

      • Tyler Makiavelli December 2, 2015

        “Weak” is a synonymous term for Rihanna’s album sales. Or better yet, her Life Alert ass vocals.

  34. Tyler Makiavelli December 2, 2015

    Centurion is living proof that if you play with bees, you get stung. BUZZ BUZZ b****!

  35. Taylor swifts number 1 fan!! December 2, 2015

    Yeah it’s the way to go, keep your album off the streaming platforms.

    1989 is going to sell over 35k this week in the states,, even after the album being out close to 60 weeks, pushing it back in the top 5!!

  36. HailBeysus December 2, 2015

    5 #1 that are remembered. Does anyone even remember all 13 #1 rihanna had???? Also them five number ones have stayed at the top spot for months at a time unlike Rihanna kiii!! 5 #1s = 36 weeks at the top, 13 #1s = 56 weeks at the top. Kiii Not The Queen trailing behind The so called digital Queen by only 20 weeks with just 5 #1 singles! The shade writes its self. You’re trying tho. Bloop whats that 4 clocks in one post KIIIII MAYBE 20 WITH TYLERS EPIC DRAGS HAHAHAHA

  37. .:: Centurion ::. December 2, 2015

    ??? Is this b*tch still post its side flop comments and running away from our conversation? LMAO. Such a kiii. Does the reply button not work anymore Tyler? ?? You play with the bull, get the horns b*tch.

  38. Tyler Makiavelli December 2, 2015

    Centurion is just upset because I have more furniture in one room than he has in his entire shack…you can hear the echo when he types.

    Good night to all, and to all a good nite!

  39. HailBeysus December 2, 2015

    That was some class A entertainment! Tyler had me Hollering at 2:00 AM in the morning! Them drags had no chill! RIP Centiped!!!

  40. .:: Centurion ::. December 2, 2015

    This is coming from a slum dwelling black shoe polishing skin colured phāg who looks like Dikembe Mutombo with a $5 wig? ??? Yes sis, go to sleep. You’re in need of a new wig.

    • Tyler Makiavelli December 2, 2015

      And one more thing you lil c*********, I can care less about what Centurion “The Predator” has to say. You are NOT significant. That is all, sweet dreams BUBBLES. Go back to your habitat!

      • .:: Centurion ::. December 2, 2015

        You better recognize b*tch. I will chew you up and spit you out. I will mince meat your ugly and feed you to the dogs. Stay in your lane and Stop swerving.

  42. DIABETES UNBOTHERED December 2, 2015

    Idk why cent urine thinks its ok if rih STILL recording it simply means it wasnt good enough & still not good. 25 has been sitting in columbias office for MONTHS, u know SONY… the home of REAL artist like bey & MJ… Jayz tried to get rih on sony but they wouldnt sign her so jay put her on def jam… well she got dropped from def jam so he put poor thing on roc nation… we all know how thats turning out.

  43. George December 3, 2015

    This was not an answer this was an EPIC FAIL. The true answer is : My label want this, they want more money and to increase sales. I can’t do anything beacause i am a puppet. Buy my mediocre cd suckers…………. Can you imagine another artist to do the same with her he or she would have a massive failure….
    Sorry Adele i will not buy anything from you from now on. i was a fan.
