Hocus Pocus! Rihanna’s ‘ANTI’ Certified Platinum

Published: Friday 29th Jan 2016 by Sam
rihanna-anti-thatgrapejuice

Rihanna‘s sorcery clearly knows no bounds.

The model released ‘ANTI’ – her long-awaited eighth album – this week for free on TIDAL.

As widely reported, the “giveaway” element was made possible by sponsor Samsung who “purchased” an undisclosed number of units to freely distribute to fans.

Specifics are scarce, but the RIAA have just confirmed the unfathomable.

Details below…

How can a free album go Platinum before the tracking week is even over? ‘ANTI’ was only just made available to buy 24 hours ago.

As ludicrous as this is, it’s actually more embarrassing than anything.

The lengths gone to to conceal the chaos.

Your thoughts?

    i luv her, but this is a mess…lol

    • rosy January 29, 2016

      How do you see this as a mess not an accomplishment gtfoh

      • Pray for the youth January 29, 2016

        Are you 12?? I didn’t like Rihanna before just because I didn’t care for her music, not a big deal. But now, this is a new low. She’s pathetic. A cheater receives through deception what honest people worked hard for. This is a Hot Mess.

      • bash January 29, 2016

        Because billboard hasn’t said its plat…the riaa has and this isn’t based on sales…because its not yet for sell lol…that why you fool

      • Sweaterz January 29, 2016

        LOL.
        Thatgrapejuice jealous much.
        The fact is this album outsells ‘Beyonce’s’ 10 days numbers only within 15 hours.
        Congrats Rihanna & Navy.

    • You tried January 29, 2016

      The delusion of. An Navy fan to celebrate such a feat that is almost like cheating! When the likes of courageous and hard working artist before this new day of streaming credits artist depended on sales alone! This is not a celebratory moment this is a laughing stock the lengths Rihs team whoever they are will go to try and solidify this crapy disc they call music that I have not purchased or the thousands of ppl I have on FB Twitter or Instagram ! No one is talking about it at all NO TREND NO TOPIC NO ANYTHING

      • jon January 29, 2016

        So if somebody offerd to buy a milion of ur product before it even hit the shelves what the f*** u gone say? No?? I mean the hateration is real!! Lol Samsung basically payed RihRih, for her name and face on a retarted add campaign ( yes i agree those ads were stupid lol) in exchange for buying her album to give to us FOR THE FREE!! LOL.. in my opinion thats that is the likeness of a true business woman… i just wish I woulda thought of the s*** first… no matter what people would have bought her album reguardless… yall just mad cause she found a smarter way to rise to the top…. this is the future of music… record companies will become obsolete if an artist can find a company to back them… F***** Smart!

      • Kizxy January 29, 2016

        Exactly as if they would of turn down a sure buyer for a”maybe buyer in the Bush”. This proves how marketable and how much of a boss lady Rihanna is. Her negotiation deals are stellar. Not to mention a big major corporations like Samsung saw the value in her stock. #bloop, they don’t buy any and anybody’s album. They saw Rihanna as being worth the investment. After all she was just named the most marketable artist. So there you go. Also only jealous and progress blocking people would complain about getting something for free, all in their warped h8tred of Rihanna. Y’all just mad because no matter how many roadblocks y’all try putting up to stop her career she still keeps rising higher and higher.

      • Diora Couture March 3, 2016

        I’m late to the party, but i was seeing reads about how she bought the position/plaque. I am not a Rihanna fan, nor am I against her. So i guess my opinion is impartial: I guess TECHNICALLY she sold 1 million tracks, but it does not mean that ONE MILLION PEOPLE bought them. An not only that, they were bought wholesale to be given away.

        So, I’m sorry, but i don’t consider that an achievement that needs to be recognized, but hell, if someone payed me $1.00 for a song of mine (or any product I sell) and they bought 1 million, well then OH HELL YES I AM TAKING THAT. She laughed all the way to the bank, while ya’ll are here carrying on about technicalities…. the fact of the matter is that she got paid cash and it really doesn’t matter to her if the MILLION SONGS are given away entirely or not….

        That being said, it is a sad day in your recording career when you cant GIVE AWAY 1 million downloads.

    • Fancy BISH January 29, 2016

      SCREAMING at the Queen Of Samsung’s suspect certifications in less than 24 hours of official sale! All this hoopla, years of confusion and mess of the ANTI campaign and Rihanna is still critically UNclaimed (lol), still won’t be taken seriously, still isn’t a songwriter, and is STILL the undefeated champion of pitchy struggle vocals (Higher says hello)…somebody, please take that crown off her big head and pop that red balloon lol 🙂

    • WINTZ January 29, 2016

      Well well well… Looky looky here!! Isn’t it the HATEFUL HIVE brought to us LIVE and DIRECT with delusions of grandeur in full EFFECT!

      Y’all mofos say NAVY should be embarrassed tho!!! FOR WHAT?! This is BRILLIANT!!! LMAO
      1. Samsung- a Billion dollar corporation CHOSE to INVEST their hard earned MULA by legit PURHASING 1 million copies of this iconic artist’s AMAZING album and GIFTED it to their loyal customers.

      2. This partnership is PHENOMENAL and it’s challenging for basic minds to comprehend the historical KATYLST that is upon us at this time!

      3. NAVY, Let us take a moment to fully digest the Fact that Rihanna laid the perfect HATE-BAIT for these TROLLS with the TIDAL streaming and downloads.

      4. She already took care of her fans with the GIFTED album via Samsungs COINS…But this SMART business savvy woman also laid the Perfect troll bait while stunting to the bank. *plays BBHMM*

      5. Even the irony is ICONIC in its own right.

      I mean… To think you hate ridden beasts were actually doing her HARM by spreading those links! Only to now realise every dayyyyyum thing was OPPOSITE aka ANTI what u expected! I LIVE!!!!

      6. To those SLAUGHTERED-Prides, you have EVERY right to SEETHE!!!!
      Commence plzzzz
      Kiiiiiii U took bait and now what is left of y’allz FRAGILE pride can’t DEAL!

      • Stupid H** January 29, 2016

        He has a point though. It’s kind of cheating. If you want to make a name for yourself as an honest musician, you should go the right way and try to sell everything under your own name. I love Beyoncé, but I love Rihanna equally. It maybe lucrative – but smart? It would be smart if no one would even get that she made some kind of deal like that. In my opinion: if one person buys an album – it should be counted towards the charts. If a company buys a million – it shouldn’t be counted towards the charts.

        And to be quite honest? Rihanna tried so hard to be “real” about this album and I don’t believe it’s authentic at all. She took two years to realize that she wanted to release an album filled with album fillers? I don’t think she was trying to be authentic – I think she wanted to SEEM authentic. That is something different. But in my opinion, BBHMM was a lot more authentic that this. I’m not saying this is a bad album. But I believe she could’ve done better. She’s trying so hard to become immortal while not understanding that she’s already immortal. She already has a bazillion number one songs – don’t you think she doesn’t need that kind of s*** to make a name to herself? Everyone knows her. From the US to China. She won’t be forgotten. She’s only putting herself under too much pressure.

        No one needs to be a Queen – no one needs to be called a Queen. Why can’t we all like Beyoncé and Rihanna equally? It’s just dumb to always come up with this s***. And y’all just stupid as you always come back here to pick up a new fight. Again and again. Don’t you learn?

      • TinaMinaj February 5, 2016

        LOL @ Samsung’s loyal customers. The album was free to anyone and everyone. Complete b******* that’s messy. This album won’t chart for s***.

  2. rosy January 29, 2016

    Now f****** eat crow you haters who want this child to fail now here comes the hives with their f****** theory and comparisons in 0 seconds go!!!!!

    • RASHAD January 29, 2016

      She failed! Samsung was her only saving grace. We know & YOU KNOW without Samsung she would be selling 100-150k first week of she had Tidal and all those leaked link floating around the net.

      Maybe next era. Bet the navy will get their same typical, generic, holiday/Black Friday album like clock work from 2017 and going forward… navy just take this as a lesson learned and eat your humble pie!

      • Kizxy January 29, 2016

        Who cares about first week when she always end up outselling many of great first week sellers. Rihanna always deliver and sell millions when it’s all said and done. The more y’all h8te the more she prosper. Rihanna is bigger than first week sales, she makes bank all around the world.

    • Kayla C January 29, 2016

      Didn’t jay z do something like this as well?

      • Riri, the Clown Fka Pray for the Youth January 29, 2016

        Yes, and he got dragged for it like this as well. There are no exemptions, that would be hypocritical…

    • bosslady January 29, 2016

      the sad thing is it’s all black people SMH that’s how blacks do other blacks, but they all hailed Adele with her accomplishments..Rihanna is smart and you can’t take her cert from her so seethe and deal! the album if fire!

      • FAF January 29, 2016

        THE DIFFERENCE IS JAY Z HAD 10 BACK TO BACK #1 ALBUMS THAT WERE ALL PLATINUM BEFORE HE DID IT
        THIS CLEARLY WAS A FAVOR HER TEAM CALLED TO SAMSUNG ONCE IT LEAKED EARLY
        SO JUST LIKE Y’ALL TALK ABOUT NICKI NOT HAVING PLATINUM SALES,
        WE GON DRAG RIHANNA THE SAME WAY

  3. .:: Centurion ::. January 29, 2016

    SCREAMING!

    • RASHAD January 29, 2016

      Yes scream from the embarrassment! All the shade The Navy threw at Bey & Gaga in 2013 now she recycling their album release startergies to save face.

      Subtract her 1 million purchased Samsung albums and you will have the REAL NUMBERS!

      • .:: Centurion ::. January 29, 2016

        For the meltdowns random troll. Get your Beybøla a hit before me you can converse.

  4. Jay January 29, 2016

    Lmaooo how could a free album go platinum I can’t with this struggle. . I’m weak af!!! This is worse than Gagas .99 cent album .. but congrats navy lol .. u showed us BeyHives .. NOT!!

    • RASHAD January 29, 2016

      Rihanna hasn’t had a #1 in 4 yrs and her current tour is struggling! #Beyinspired Rihanna with your flop album. It’s ok boo you and I both know your girl flopped this time around.

    • whenindoubtthetruthwillout January 29, 2016

      Jay Z did exactly the same thing!!!

  5. AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig January 29, 2016

    LMAO! Didn’t Samsung buy 1Million units? It’s been streamed 13M but downloaded just over 1 Million times on Tidal, so hmmmmmmmm.

    • MsYonce January 29, 2016

      Billboard don’t count free streams so that won’t count

      • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig January 29, 2016

        LOOOOOL! It’s so cute that homegirl triedT to pull a ‘Beyonce’ but fell flat on her coconut shaped head.

      • Rozell January 29, 2016

        But according to tidal she already sold 450,000 in a few days. And her album is number one around the globe. Yass ri ri.

  6. MsYonce January 29, 2016

    Yas gurl you better come through with this Self Purchased album.

    • Rozel January 30, 2016

      Who cares what Forbes believes. Her best album is still yet to be determined since she’s still putting out music every few years. If you notice her sales have been increasing and her fan base growing over the years. Y’all can’t let this girl be great. Forbes racist write up would have never been questioning it if it was Adele or any other white artist. They don’t want to see black people making bank. What annoys me is how much black artists are always having to prove themselves while making business moves. Something a white artist never has to do. Smh.

  7. christinastherealtalent January 29, 2016

    I mean it’s a great album, by far her best, BUT, even this seems sketchy! First, the album leaks, then you officially release it as a “surprise” for free, then it goes for sale? Hmmmmm!!! It sounds like Rihanna and her team’s ego can’t handle not “winning” this time around!

  8. Hmmm… January 29, 2016

    You mean, Anti sells one million… To Samsung. This girl is a joke, cheating for sales. That’s a slap in the face to boss ass b****** who sold on their name alone.

  9. Duffster Lovato January 29, 2016

    Samsungs influence. RiRi don’t forget to than Samsung for buying 1million copies of your album. It still won’t change the fact that the charts are not counting those.

    • Duffster Lovato January 29, 2016

      *thank

    • Riri, the Clown January 29, 2016

      Yeah. Billboard and Nielson aren’t counting these “sales”. Lmao, so We’ll get the real sales later. I have to say, this was a funny joke though. It gave me a hoot, it did. Rihanna should’ve been a comedian.

    • UR January 29, 2016

      It doesn’t really matter who an album is sold to. What matters is that it is sold. In Rihanna’s case, ‘Anti’ was sold a million times over. Call it ‘cheating’. Call it good business. Regardless, I would think that she wins. Should one really care about charting when you’ve already gone platinum?

      • Riri, the Clown Fka Pray for the Youth January 29, 2016

        Lmao, is that what Rihanna and the navy are about? It doesn’t matter how you get it as long as you get it? Pray for the youth. That’s the thought process of the incapable–the need to manipulate the system because you aren’t good enough. I don’t have the talent or ability to reach the finish line, so how about we just bring the finish line to me? I’ll call it cheating because it is cheating, and contrary to popular belief, a good business person does not have to sacrifice integrity ie., cut corners, to reach one’s desired goal. It’s called being lazy, it doesn’t matter who it’s sold to? So what’s to stop an artist from buying a million copies of their own album, give them out, and get certified? Bring the finish line to me, logic. This promotes mediocrity and I don’t commend shortcuts. This is an embarrassment.

      • Hmmm… January 29, 2016

        If it doesn’t matter who an album is sold to, Why isn’t Billboard and Nielsen counting the sales? Obviously, it does matter. Surely, Billboard and Nielsen know the difference between cheating and good business? If these sales were really just “good business” and not cheating, wouldn’t Nielsen have no problem including them?

      • UR January 29, 2016

        Never mind Rihanna’s oh-so loyal fan base, honourably known as ‘The Navy’. Her fans are not the issue here. Her brand is – the very brand that has just scored her a million or more in album sales. Okay, so she unconventionally managed to sell a million copies of her latest album. Why should something unconventional have to equate to something disingenuous? The word ‘integrity’ has no business in the music industry. When have you ever heard that word being used in a song – I mean, really? Besides, artists are finding new ways to make money all the time. We live a cutthroat world and, while you’re busy feeling cheated, Rihanna’s probably sitting on some island thinking about how she can possibly expand her net worth. Also, no artist would ever buy a million copies of their own album. That would be desperate, crazy and stupid.

      • Riri, the Clown Fka Pray for the Youth January 29, 2016

        Oh, I will mind Rihanna’s oh-so stupid fanbase. “The word integrity has no business in the music industry, have you ever heard the word used in a song”??? You sound like an absolute idiot. The word integrity belongs in the “I have self respect” industry. It belongs in the “I have morals, values, and ethics” industry. It belongs in the “I adhere to principles of honesty, sincerity, and uprightness” industry. Fvck you mean integrity has no business in the music industry?!? Does Rihanna not operate according to such respectable doctrines because she’s a part of the music industry??…I suppose not.
        ———————————————————-

      • Riri, the Clown Fka Pray for the Youth January 29, 2016

        …And who said that an unconventional release equates to something disingenuous. THIS unconventional release equates to something disingenuous. “We live in a cutthroat world” Does that justify mendacity?? Its desperate to buy your all of albums, but its not desperate to get someone else to do it on your behalf. I seriously can’t deal which such inane comments. Pray for the Youth, everybody.

      • UR January 29, 2016

        Oh, I really seem to have touched a nerve. “Pray for the youth?” I’m pretty sure I’m older than you – probably by a few years. You don’t call another person an idiot, especially not an “absolute” one. That’s mean. Mommy never teach you any manners? Okay, moving on. Nowadays, integrity or, at the very least, your definition thereof, can basically be regarded as a commodity. It is something sold to the consumer. Nobody really knows what happens behind the scenes. Nobody really knows about the lengths taken in order to make an artist (or an artist’s music) more appealing. Really, when you think about it, an artist’s integrity lies in the artist one portrays to be. The integrity itself may not necessarily be all that genuine. You mentioned ‘self respect’. When Samsung, one of the biggest multinational conglomerate companies in the world, chooses to invest in you as an artist/actress/businesswoman/brand by buying a million copies of your latest album before it’s even gone on sale, I should think that you’re allowed to at least a million reasons of self-respect. Don’t you?

      • Riri, the Clown Fka Pray for the Youth January 29, 2016

        Lmaoooo, Why do you keep dragging yourself??? Do you think that telling me that you are not a part of the “youth” improves your case, because it most definitely made it worse. In other words, you’re an adult with the rationale of a 16 year old? Death. Maybe if you dedicated as much time to learning how to read as you have to replying to me, you would know that I never called you an idiot. Mommy never teach you how to read? Alright moving on, I understand that the gist of your comment is to compromise integrity because lots of people do it and you just don’t know it and that Rihanna can be bought. That’s what I learned. Thanks for that, i’ll take it with me. Pray for the Youth, that aren’t really considered the youth, but still have the argumentation of the youth, everybody.

      • UR January 29, 2016

        You did. What I said was that Rihanna’s ‘Anti’ album reached platinum status in an unconventional way. You said that a good businessperson would not need to sacrifice ‘integrity’ to do so. You’re saying that Rihanna being unconventional in how ‘Anti’ reached platinum status equates to some sort of absence in integrity. Get my logic?

      • UR January 29, 2016

        Oh, I like being ‘dragged’. Maybe not. I don’t really know what that means, nor do I care to. It’s really impossible to have a grown conversation with you. You’re so set in your ways. Kids. Oh well. I’ve got a Navy ship to steer. Toodles.

      • Riri, the Clown Fka Pray for the Youth January 29, 2016

        No, I don’t get your logic. I said RIHANNA’S unconventional release equates to something disingenuous and lacking in integrity. I was referring to ONE specific instance, obviously the one that this post is about. I never made a general assertion that an unconventional release equates to a breach in integrity. I made this very clear in my reference which should be 3 comments above this one. In the comment, You’ll find that I put “THIS” in caps for those with special needs. Learn how to read and cognize. My Goodness, I might as well be having a conversation with a brick wall.

      • Riri, the Clown Fka Pray for the Youth January 29, 2016

        Bwahahahaha, “a grown conversation” You can’t even express yourself as eloquently as I would expect an adult, I’m sure you’re 12. if you’re as “grown” as you make it seem like you are and you don’t know what “dragging” means, why are you here?? 😂😂😂 All of the lies. This is obviously your coping mechanism for losing an argument, multiple times over. But don’t worry, they’ll teach you how to formulate a convincing thesis in middle school, and I’m sure they’ll teach you how to read as well. Nice try at attempting to save face, but it’s a little too late for that. Good luck with your studies!!!

      • UR January 30, 2016

        Shame. You’re hurt. Why am I here? Obviously because I’m a Rihanna fan. Why’re you here? Obviously because you feel offended by Rihanna’s sense of integrity, or lack thereof. You clearly didn’t get the point of my first comment. I was speaking in general terms. What I said was that the one (unconventionalism) shouldn’t necessarily equate to the other (an absence in integrity). Hence, how Rihanna achieved platinum status with her latest album should NOT NECESSARILY be seen as ‘dishonest’. I was speaking in neutral terms. Let’s hope you’re able to comprehend this comment, child.

      • Riri, the Clown Fka Pray for the Youth January 30, 2016

        It’s okay if you can’t read, hon. Im sure you’ll get the help you need next year in seventh grade. Ii still can’t get over your 1st grade reading comprehension skills, this is the THIRD time I’m explaining this to you. I read your general comment and what I did was refute that comment above, if you knew how to read you’d know that, the comment begins, “…and who said an unconventional release equates…” Do you not know how to conduct a sophisticated argument? Stop lying about your age. Your brain capacity, or lack thereof, has exposed you for the preteen you are. Pray for the youth. This is what it looks like when the education system fails you folks. Do better.

  10. Surprise..(DEC 2013) January 29, 2016

    LOL…….IF THIS WAS BEYONCE, THE NAZI WILL BE SEETHING. THE IRONY OF IT ALL IS THAT IF IT WASN’T FREE SHE WOULD NOT HAVE SOLD MORE THAN 250K…LMAO

  12. Mya January 29, 2016

    Rihanna is the biggest gimmick artist ever. The actual sells will come nowhere near it lmao! Depressed tbh.

  13. BeyTheGr8 January 29, 2016

    And her album is number 1 on iTunes in over 40 countries, including the US and the UK. I’m a fan of hers and bey’s, but it’s really sad how you want Rihanna to fail so bad Sam. You would think she did something to your mother. Bad journalism.

  19. Surprise..Dec 2013 January 29, 2016

    This is like Gaga’s amazon deal. 2.0..Lmao

    • King Mark111 /.\ January 29, 2016

      Not at all. Gags had nothing to do with it, amazon did that 99 cent sale to launch their cloud service. They lost over 3 million dollars because they had to pay Gag’s label the 400K+ full album price. Rihanna, just like Jay Z, made a deal with Samsung and Samsung bought the albums, they own their own masters, so they got the check.

  20. Mariah’s little lamb January 29, 2016

    Hive dont get to happy becasue your bald headed fave’s husband did the same thing a few years ago

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) January 29, 2016

      The difference is that..Jay sold(ACTUAL SALES) almost 600k in its first week, minus the samsung deal. Now until RIHCUNT can do that.SHUT THE HELL UP AND MAKE SURE MOORIAH DOES NOT SPILL OUT HER WEDDING DRESS ON HER (HOPEFULLY) WEDDING DAY.

      • King Mark111 /.\ January 29, 2016

        Nope, the same thing, Maga went plat the first day. A week later he sold 400K. Rihanna will do at least 200K.

    • Pray for the youth January 29, 2016

      And he got dragged for it by the navy, a few years ago, so what’s changed?

    • MsYonce January 29, 2016

      Thats jay’s problem! Beyonce will continue to sell and earn REAL sales from the people that love her music and are willing to PURCHASE it.

        Hey I would rather sell 20k copies than to cheat to stay on top. That’s the whole point people so focus on album sales that they don’t even stop to think if they record or album itself is good. How many times you heard of people complimenting Ciara’s latest work. (Almost everyone who had a chance to listen)NOW for this ANTI album how many people are liking this album….. very few right. Don’t look at the numbers all the time and stop basing these artists worth and talent on album sales because WE ALL know of some artists that are suppose to be bigger than they are now but they are not because of foul competitors like riri. Just because its not Ciara’s time to shine doesn’t make her less than anybody.

She over their acting like 1 million people went out and bought her album (GIRL STOP). When those real first & second week numbers come out that will really tell you how much she sold! Rihanna let Adele completely ruin her era. Guess that Rihanna reign finally let huh?

  36. Waitwhat? January 29, 2016

    The Flea Hives are in here. I

  37. Ashley January 29, 2016

    I liked the album but this is a hot mess. And the fact that she tweeted about it going platinum *facepalm* a bit embarrassed. We all know it would’ve been platinum by Spring anyway but this is still tacky.

    With the Jay Z thing which I also thought was a mess, it wasn’t as bad because he ALWAYS does big opening numbers and sells quickly.

    I think Rihanna’s highest 1st week was 200k+ so it kind of looks bad when she does this.

    What pisses me off most is the album is nice, maybe better than her others but this train wreck that was the ANTI campaign. 3 singles last year, 3 videos, all scraped then a scavenger hunt that didn’t even lead to the single or album. She dropped the single before room 8 then Tidal leaked it, then she gave it for free, only been available for digital sale for 2 seconds and they’re saying it’s platinum. I love you Rihanna but girl….

    People please …Samsung bought one million for sure …but the thing is that … you have to click the download button and this count as sales if we can say like that … its a deal with samsung so because nobody were obliged to download the album … its considered as a choice so go along with the deal .

  53. AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig January 29, 2016

    I really don’t have any ill feelings towards Rihanna personally, but this makes me cringe. First of all, I’m not a Rihanna hater! I don’t really care for her, but I’m not bias towards her. I actually like some of the new music from this era (‘Kiss It Better’, AO), but this platinum certification is making the industry look like a joke now! You have so many legendary artists that have broken records and sold millions legitimately. None of them were able to take these kind of shortcuts! If Rihanna wanted this to ONLY be about the music (and she didn’t give a damn about the numbers), I’d respect it! Appreciating music has nothing to do with sales. Now, if you’re all about the charts, that’s fine too! It’s just that when you have an outside sponsor buying a million records, this makes this accomplishment feel cheap! … When it comes to Billboard charts. You’re winning in life because that’s a million sold. Get money, woo woo! Get that check! … Just don’t tell me this “honor” deserves to be in the record books. If companies are going to start buying all the albums at this point, let’s do away with Billboard! We can’t compare apples to today’s oranges!

  60. smile January 29, 2016

    This was the PERFECT marketing strategy for this album.

    Forbes stated that she also sold 400,000 on top of the million gifted to fans. I’m thinking the 400 will be what Billboard counts to their charts.

    1 Million people heard it, word of mouth spread like wildfire which in turned got people to purchase.

    Say what you what but Rihanna is killing it right now, it’s a great album.

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) January 29, 2016

    • Pray for the youth January 29, 2016

      You must not have actually read the article. Forbes: “Tidal claims that Rihanna’s album has already sold 400,000 copies… But is that really true? That 400,000 figure should be taken with a grain of salt. If the numbers are correct, it means that Anti is the biggest success of the singer’s storied career, and that’s tough to believe”…. Death, Forbes made it clear that they don’t believe that. Forbes is waiting for billboard and Nielsen to release the numbers just like everyone else. Even though cheaters can’t be trusted…

This is exactly the kind of album Rihanna needed to release to become a mature pop artist. It makes me excited for what’s next.

    Things are changing. Sales are not as important as they once were.

      Samsung bought 1,000,000 copies before the album even came out. Hence the Samsung AntidiaRIH’s and s***, so she hasn’t REALLY sold but over a few ten thousand as of today on iTunes but of course she’s cheating her sales because she’s over, AND trying to make it seem like her fans bought it but it was apart of her Samsung deal. Don’t worry the album is still a flop, no one is buying it either. took FOREVER to get it #1 on iTunes from last night to this evening

      • How Many Drinks January 29, 2016

LMAO (I was NOT one of those people btw, I wouldn’t listen to Hœhanna’s music even if you paid me to). This is the dirtiest trick that has been played in the music industry for a while!

  79. Slay_Hive January 29, 2016

    This is some cheating ass Bullshiit! but of course we all knew this would happen. She can’t sell a million on her name alone. It had to be free. Some digital Queen. lmaooo The navy stays taking losses. I wouldn’t even support this if i was them. #Shameful AF

    The no-life-having-āss-høe-hive and the other Rihanna haters ran to Tidal to download a free album, spread the news, and even posted weblinks to download pirated copies of the album and now their crying. 😂😂😂😂😂

    And elsewhere Rita Ora no longer seems to be on the ROC Nation roster

  82. Erica January 29, 2016

    Rihanna and her fans are really embarrassing themselves. There is a reason why Billboard, Nielson and Soundscan will not be counting her sales. You guys do realize that Samsung bought a million copies and gave it out for free right? So the album was platinum even before it was released? Stop saying “when will your fave”, because you sound really dumb. Now when Billboard, Neilson, SoundScan, etc post that she’s sold a million next week then you guys can brag, but right now you guys sound stupid bragging about a million album free giveaway. Embarrassing yourselves.

  83. Slay_Hive January 29, 2016

    The main idiots that called self titled a gimmick are the main ones supporting this mess. Not surprising. These hoess self drag all the time. They’ll accept any little accomplishement at this point. Beyonce is about to come and embarrass this girl. smmfh lmaooo

  86. Keri Qween January 29, 2016

    Rih always scans a milli anyways , and the album is still #1 on iTunes which means people are using their coins to purchase it. Why y’all so mad? 😂

  87. JanStan January 29, 2016

    To be fair, if Rihanna wasnt who she was, Samsung wouldn’t have bought those albums so I think it’s fair to count them. No different than if anyone of us bought a million copies. BUT the question becomes whether Samsung made a huge mistake as this era has been a wreck. If they lose money on it they’ll make it known and it could hurt her more than a traditional rollout would have

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) January 29, 2016

      No it’s not fair because if they did not do that, she def would have not sold more than 200k first week. Now if this was ADELE, it would be cool, because irrespective of that she would have sold a shiit load of copies anyways. THIS WAS A COP-OUT FOR RIHANNA, AND THANKFULLY SHE GOT PAID FOR IT.

  88. Slay_Hive January 29, 2016

    Honey no one is mad over a gimmick as album that needed to be free in order to scan platinum. lmaooo Mrs. “Washed up” Beyonce didn’t even have to stoop that low. SMOKE AND MIRRORS with this hoee at all times. smmfh lmaooo Cheers, I guess

  89. .:: Centurion ::. January 29, 2016

    I’m currently obsessed with “Same Ol’ Mistake”. I’m gettting an Aaliyah / Montell Jordan vibe from the song. I’m completely mesmerised by that song.

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) January 29, 2016

      That is my favorite song on the entire album, along with kiss it better. I like those two songs the most. But overall i would give it a 6.5/10, it sounded like UNAPOLOGETIC 2.0. Her vocals have definitely improved tho.

      • 👑Queen Molly👑 January 29, 2016

        Kiss it better needs to be the next second single.

  90. Danzou January 29, 2016

    Why do y’all want black women to fail so bad? Congratulate her and move on with y’all weak a.sses. y’all didn’t care when Jay z did it so shut up. now all that’s left is for bey and Kanye to bless us with their art and their tours. Support black artists instead of shading them. Simple. We don’t have many left.

    • Tyler Makiavelli January 29, 2016

      Why would we congratulate her for cheating?

      • Danzou January 29, 2016

        It’s not cheating you idiot. The albums that are bought by Samsung were given out for free and no one HAD to download them but over a million people CHOSE to. So therefore the plan worked. This is business so get your head out of your a.ss. Jay z did the same thing and no one cared.

      • Tyler Makiavelli January 29, 2016

        Jayz sold 400K without Samsung you f****** moron!
        The copies Samsung bought weren’t even counted towards billboard stupid b****. You’ve obviously been blinded the glare from Rihannas big ass head.

      • OMG Logic!!! January 29, 2016

        In other words — cheating. And you better believe people cared when Jay Z did it. He got dragged by everyone.

      • MsThing485 January 29, 2016

        Download doesn’t equal bought. A million people accepted something for *free*, is that supposed to be impressive? How many of them would have bothered if they had to shell out $10 for the privilege of having it? Rihanna used Samsung to gave her album away for FREE because everyone knew it wouldn’t otherwise sell. It’s a house built on sand. How humiliating for her. When the dust clears and the real consumer sales figures are tallied, lets see how much this all evens out…

      • Danzou January 29, 2016

        Somebody get these femmes outta my reply section. Y’all obviously are suffering from cognitive dissonance. If ciara offered a free album do you honestly think it would be streamed 14million times? Do you think million people will download it? No. But rihanna did. Not to mention a #1 single on iTunes on over 91 countries like just stop the Damn hate.

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) January 29, 2016

      The difference is that..JAY-Z ACTUALLY SOLD ALMOST 600K FIRST WEEK, DESPITE THE FACT THAT SAMSUNG BOUGHT A MILLION COPIES.

      • Danzou January 29, 2016

        And here ladies and gentlemen we have another idiot. If Jay z sold 600k but already sold a million to Samsung then he was already going platinum right? So shut up.

  91. Danzou January 29, 2016

    And what about when Katy paid to have roar syndicated? Where was the dragging? I always feel like there’s an undertone of racism whenever the general public shades black artists. It’s like y’all wait for them to f.uck up and then you pounce. Y’all never do this with white artists.

    • JanStan January 29, 2016

      Its probably cause no one cares about her on a serious level. #sheneedsagrammyfirst

      • Danzou January 29, 2016

        If no one cared about her on a serious level then her single wouldn’t have been number one on over 90 countries. If no one carted about her on a serious level then she wouldn’t have been streamed 14million times. If no one cared about her on a serious level then she wouldn’t have gone platinum seven times in a row.

  95. JOHNVIDAL January 29, 2016

    LMAO
    This has to be the biggest ridiculous payola EVER!
    So the album cannot stay at #1 on itunes for more than a day (not even a real chart but at least it is about sales) but we are supposed to believe she is platinum????? When all she has ever been able to sell first week even with a radio hit has been like 200k copies???? LMAO This is WOW. The biggest messy era for an artist still in her 20s ever!

    • Keri Qween January 29, 2016

      The album went back to #1 you moron

  96. Absolved January 29, 2016

    Just wait until the REAL official first week sales are revealed. Embarrassing. If the “99 cents” thing is still hanging over Gaga’s head, just imagine how fun it’ll be for Rihanna to live this down.

    • Rory January 29, 2016

      But totally different. Gaga had to discount those albums to sell a milli the first week. Rihanna gave away for FREE and is still #1 iTunes. That’s impressive.

  97. OMG Logic!!! January 29, 2016

    Tragic. Pathetic. Desperate. Belligerent. All terms that can be applied to the goat and her navy as they wander around in their delusion trying to spin this into anything other than the embarrassment that it is.

    CHILE the hive are out and ready and are EATING miss “fraudulent platinum album” ALIVE and I am HERE FOR IT!! LMAO! Home girl needed to put that sh*t for FREE to sell LMAO! Beyonce’s album was illegally downloaded over 1 billion times (Google It). IMAGINE how it would have been on the first week. When you are struggling with concepts and promotion I guess you gotta to gimmicks to sell LOL poor Riri. TAYLOR WOULD NEVER. ADELE WOULD NEVER. BEYONCE WOULD NEVER. The pathetic a** navy jumping for joy when they know damn well this mess is faker than a THREE DOLLAR BILL!

  99. Danzou January 29, 2016

    And what’s worse is that Sam being a black man and being aware of the the of treatment black women go through globally he is enticing disrespect for women in general led alone black women.

      Don’t try to play that “black man/woman” card. Rihanna and her team did something obviously shiesty and are getting rightfully called out for the deception. Just because one is black doesn’t mean that they are obligated to excuse the tomfoolery of their fellow PoC.

    • Sandra January 29, 2016

      Thid has nothing to do with being a black woman, Rihanna CHEATED! No matter what race she is, she did not earn a platinum certification because the album was given away for free. And she should be called out for it.

      • Danzou January 29, 2016

        Somebody get these femmes outta my reply section. Y’all obviously are suffering from cognitive dissonance.

    The hate hive is disgusting

  101. Incognegro January 29, 2016

    I think this was a smart move! Does it desire honorable mention, no; but she does deserve credit for making a smart decision. Just think about it…why lose money on an album that fickle fans may or may not purchase? Why not have your rich Uncle Samsung pick up the tab (in exchange for you promotion their new phone) ,put the album out, tour and make money off of a technically good album. Don’t get me wrong, it is still possible to go multi-platinum on an album from sales…Adele proved that very well. But we must all remember that an album does not make an artist money, tours and sponsorships (I.e Samsung) do!

    I also think there is trouble in paradise between Rih and Roc Nation/Tidal. Her album was pushed back multiple times, requiring that she regroup and try again. Also, notice the album was released on Tidal and not iTunes. So, the money spent on the records come right back to her, because she is part of the corporation selling the album (or giving it “free”)…

    So yea, this was an overplay for the underlay…but everyone is happy at the end of the day. She made a good album that went platinum, Samsung got new promotion of their new phone, Tidal got money and a whole bunch of new members, and many of us got a free album. If we are made, we are made because we wanna be…because no one loses here…hell, I want more free albums lol!

(Both Adele & bey & taylor are all more marketable than Rihfund automatically if the SELL more first week btw Jayz didnt NEED this… his album went #1 REGARDLESS off REAL sells

  123. RICHIE_RICH January 29, 2016

    Rihanna girl you cheated period point blank!!!! The album is cute , I feel the work would’ve sold itself. I’m not hating by no means at all, but I can’t respect a cheater. If find it very comical , had Beyoncé did this all hell would’ve broke loose. This is what you call a gimmick to the core!!!!! On the real how can yall call this an accomplishment?

    So is that what we’re doing now?

This is a joke. Anti bombed and no amount of transparent coverup is gonna hide the real truth.

    THE CARTERS are in the 500+k club with Justin & adele & Taylor & Eminem & Drake & dem while Rihfund is stuck in the 100-200k club with Tamar Braxston the rest of the CERRORS. KIII Idk why Mark acting like this is flattering on Samsungs part… RIH NEEDED THEM! Not the other way arroud. I never recall Samsung struggling to sell phones like Rihfund struggles to sell Album. On the day of its physical release in the United States, the album was certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for shipments of 1,000,000 copies. It debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200,selling 528,000 copies in its first week,making it Jay-Z’s 13th consecutive studio album to top the chart. On September 2, 2013, it was announced that Magna Carta Holy Grail was certified double Platinum by the RIAA, for shipments of two million copies in the United States.

    • JadeSapphire January 29, 2016

      Jayz and Beyonce making money off of Rihanna they co-own the company that released her album so if she is cheating aren’t they as well. She is currently signed to ROC Nation Jayz label. 7 platinum or multi platinum albums is not struggle nor 120 million net worth at 27. Its business. Beyonce is releasing her next album on Tidal I guarantee free downloads are in her future just as Jayz did with Magna Carts…also physical sales of Anti to date are 400k+, I guess she surpassed your 150k figure.

    They Will confuse some wirh their noise but those with a brain know its just sour grapes

  131. JDEK January 29, 2016

    huh? already platinum?????WHEN WILL BEYTRANNYS OLD DRAG QUEEN GRANNY ASS? WHEN WILL CEDIRC AND IS FLOP ASS ADAMS APPLE!!!! ANTIS EASILY THE BEST BODY OF WORK WE’VE SEEN FROM RIH AS WELL AS BEING THE BEST/ANTIcipated ALBUM OF 2016 rih served vocals and ALLLL.. OF COURSE YOU AND YOUR FAVES ARE BITTER! I’d be too if my faves wig ever got this snatched!!! #anotherone #queenofpop

  132. JadeSapphire January 29, 2016

    Its really something when a whole lot of ppl talk loud and wrong. You may not like Rihanna but this was a smart move. The last seven albums for her have gone platinum or multi platinum. That was her doing it the “right” way. Everyone compares her to Beyonce who co-owns Tidal. Beyonce will be doing the same. Fans make competition these ppl are making money. Its all about business.

  133. JustineSkyeLOVESRihannaV12 January 29, 2016

    Hi Navy <3 I Had To Go Out Of The Country For A Minute But I See That Your All Taking Wigs Off From These Stressed Out H00es! And Tyleecia Was A Little Monster Gaga Fan All Along?????

  134. DIABETES UNBOTHERED January 29, 2016

    & like i said yesterday (i know the navy isnt good at math so ill speak slowly) TIDAL… HAS… 1+… million subcribers… ANTI…. has 13 tracks. Thats 13 million streams. Riaa certified Anti for 1 million copies purchased by Samsung. Billboard didnt signsum piece treaty with RIAA… the album SOLD 77,000 so far on itunes, its headed for a top 3 position not #1.

    • JustineSkyeLOVESRihannaV12 January 29, 2016

      I Saw That. Why Did Your Avi Change From Suprise….Dec 13th Avi? Mark, Lb, Centurion, Keri Kween What’s Going On Here? SCREAMING!!!!!!!!!

    • JadeSapphire January 29, 2016

      Check Forbes, 77000 on ITunes is not the only place you can purchase an album. Also the Samsung deal wasn’t just with Rihanna but Tidal also. Magna Carta was also a Samsung Tidal deal.

  135. King Mark111 /.\ January 29, 2016

    They’re running out of excuses and hate. lol Where the main pest, I haven’t seen them on here today. Hiding much?

    • LB January 29, 2016

      They are madT and pressed. 7 Platinum albums

    • How Many Drinks January 29, 2016

      There are no excuses around the FACT Rihanna is officially the biggest cheat in the industry. How do you feel?

      • briano 1 January 29, 2016

        U are delusional and sick
        Rih is no 1 as far as females seethe and let it go

  136. DIABETES UNBOTHERED January 29, 2016

    Lol @ rihsceduled Navy thinking Bey will do the same to copy Rihfund… what Bey will probably do is SHIP 1 MILLION, Then RIAA makes the announcement to build a little Buz arround that. THIS is smart buisness WITHOUT cheating. Rihs label would never overship cuz its hard enuff for Rihornes to sell gold in a whole MONTH.

    • JadeSapphire January 29, 2016

      I am not Rih Navy its just funny how you forget that Jayz did the same thing. If its cheating its cheating all the way around including your beloved Carters. Lastly for you to negate the fact that Beyonce released her album on Tidal is funny a company they all co-own. Its sad that ppl rather tear someone down then build them up. If you don’t like her don’t buy her music. Your voice is not affecting her wallet.

  137. WINTZ January 29, 2016

    Well well well… Looky looky here!! Isn’t it the HATEFUL HIVE brought to us LIVE and DIRECT with delusions of grandeur in full EFFECT!

    Y’all mofos say NAVY should be embarrassed tho!!! FOR WHAT?! This is BRILLIANT!!! LMAO

    1. Samsung- a Billion dollar corporation CHOSE to INVEST their hard earned MULA by legit PURHASING 1 million copies of this iconic artist’s AMAZING album and GIFTED it to their loyal customers.

    2. This partnership is PHENOMENAL and it’s challenging for basic minds to comprehend the historical KATYLST that is upon us at this time!

    3. NAVY, Let us take a moment to fully digest the Fact that Rihanna laid the perfect HATE-BAIT for these TROLLS with the TIDAL streaming and downloads.

    4. She already took care of her fans with the GIFTED album via Samsungs COINS…But this SMART business savvy woman also laid the Perfect troll bait while stunting to the bank. *plays BBHMM*

    5. Even the irony is ICONIC in its own right.


    I mean… To think you hate ridden beasts were actually doing her HARM by spreading those links! Only to now realise every dayyyyyum thing was OPPOSITE aka ANTI what u expected! I LIVE!!!!

    6- to the SLAUGHTERED-Prides, you have EVERY right to SEETHE!!!!

    Commence plzzzz

    Kiiiiiii U took bait and now what is left of y’allz FRAGILE pride can’t DEAL!

  138. Rosie January 29, 2016

    cackling
    I <b<NEVER wanna see the National Guard call self-titled’s release a gimmick again. The hypocrisy of them claiming for over two straight years that their fave would never, no one would care about it if it wasn’t surprised released only for the rihtarded slave b**** to do the exact same thing after it was copied to death by 93948 other artists AND literally bought a certification. At least Magna Carta Holy Fail sold 500K first week. ANTi will be EXTREMELY lucky to do half of that.

  139. StarXavi January 29, 2016

    Why are people so mad that she’s winning??? The hate is real on this site and it’s so annoying. She has nothing to prove to a bunch of nobodies on a blog mad because she is working the hell out of whatever deal she made. Stay mad haters!

  140. Barb B**** January 29, 2016

    Oh wow. I have no words. And what is worse is the Navy actually making excuses for this mess. Wow wow wow. I didn’t think even Rihanna would stoop that low.

    This is disgusting. They can never come for Nicki, Beyonce or Gaga for anything again. RIHFRAUD. The biggest cheat in the industry

  141. @FC/JC January 29, 2016

    The DECEPTION 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 she’s come to an al time desperate low…

  142. Cough Cough January 29, 2016

    This is like saying ” but I got my own house, my bills are paid and my fridge is full to the God’s” but you paying $28 in rent through section 8 and get food stamps AND EBT cash cause you claiming yo lil’ cousins.

  143. How Many Drinks January 29, 2016

    LMFAO. She will forever be dragged to the pits of hell for this. There is no reason to be mad, RIAA, Billboard nor Soundscan do not count this s*** as sales. This movie is whack and desperate. Lol. I’m weak.

  144. How Many Drinks January 29, 2016

    And we all know this Samsung partnership you are dsperatley clinging to is thanks to Mr Carter. There is nothing revolutionary or impressive about this mess. Lol. The struggle in camp fenny.

  145. Anti (hives scared of R8) January 29, 2016

    Winning!! When will fatyonce. I live for the meltdowns,paragraphs,seething. Not these ashy f*gs purchasing pillow talk to see Rihanna fail.Kiii I thought they weren’t threatened by Rihanna’s Hot 100 glory. And why are the fleas using Zayn doesn’t their fav have a collaboration out.Kiiii

    • How Many Drinks January 29, 2016

      Lmfao you do know no is threatened,just clocking your faves desperation. Beyonce SOLD 1 million in 10 days by people actually investing her album, not cheating her way to a platinum plaque by letting a cooperation give it out for free. LOL. When will Rihanna do that?

      • Blue January 29, 2016

        rihanna did it in 24 hours.

      • HailBeysus January 29, 2016

        Lmao but the Kiii is 1 million people didn’t spend their hard earned to purchase Rihanna’s album. Samsung did and handed them out with a 2month membership to Tidal LMFAO!!! The QUEENS album sold solely off her name and not a billion dallor cooperation purchasing them lmfao!
        #youtried
        #clockedandserved
        #KIIII

      • How Many Drinks January 29, 2016

        Not through sales. Lol. Stop struggling.

      • Blue January 29, 2016

        in the 48 hours rihanna’s album was downloaded 1 million times by the gp and she got paid for it. which is what this post is about, if you cant handle that fact thats on you. whether you think its fair or not that is the simple fact that the RIAA is going on.

      • How Many Drinks January 29, 2016

        The FACTS are downloads =/= Sales.

      • Blue January 29, 2016

        dont know in what world you live in but in this one legal downloads do equal sales.

      • How Many Drinks January 29, 2016

        Legal downloads that you have to PAY for yes. Not The FREE downloads that Rihanna got, which is why the are not counted on Billboard.

      • Blue January 29, 2016

        billboard and the RIAA are two different entities. they work on different basis. to the RIAA that is 1 million units moved. and at the end of the day thats what this post and certification means.

      • How Many Drinks January 29, 2016

        And that still doesn’t change the fact that your fave cheated your way to a platinum plaque through a corperation, while everyone else gets there off public investment. So you cannot compare speed!

      • Blue January 29, 2016

        i dont think you truly understand what it is happened here.
        difference between billboard/nielsen and the RIAA.
        The RIAA awards certifications according to shipments, while nielsen counts copies moved over the counter directly into the GPS’s hands.
        example. if walmart orders 10 million of a beyonce album based of the hype surrounding her album, but only 1 million people actually buy it from walmart because it was the shittiest album she has ever released then the RIAA will award a diamond certification for that 10 million units bey was paid for but nielsen will only report the 1 million sold. samsung bought 1 million copies so that was moved and rihanna got paid for it so the RIAA has to certify it as platinum. its the same thing.

      • Blue January 29, 2016

        what i keep trying to tell you is that i wasnt really comparing her to anyone nor was a really calling out any fanbase. it was just me bragging and throwing a ‘WHEN WILL YOU FAV’

      • How Many Drinks January 29, 2016

        Yawn. You are STILL blubbering on? Answer me this simple question. How likely would anti have been to go platinum in 2 days had Samsung NOT bought her album, and it was only down to the GPS consumption (what everyone else relies on) instead? Two options: Very likely, or Not likely at all. Now, when you have an honest answer in your head, think of why that is… and then will go back to my original comment (which wasn’t even for you in the first place)

  146. WINTZ January 29, 2016

    Another reason to SEETHE ofcourse is that MR. Jigga man CARTER (Beygone’s huzzy) took this route some years back but never had half the SUCCESS nor groundbreaking IMPACT that ANTI exudes!!

    Was Mrs Camel I mean Carter HUsband’s album rollout a GIMMICK as well??

    We can’t hear u, SPEAK up!!! The audacity to call anyone a hypocrite!! Kiiiii

  147. Kyle January 29, 2016

    Kiii if @ Forbes, Billboard and NY times clocking the s*** out of this desperate w****. And death @ the struggle Navy calling this an accomplishment. They have hit rock bottom.

    Plus is anti sales Tour sold out anywhere yet?

  148. RICHIE_RICH January 29, 2016

    I mean do they really think the hive is MAD????? Well I’m not

    • Knowles Carter January 29, 2016

      What is there to be mad about?

    • Blue January 29, 2016

      and yet here they are in the another rihanna post going on and on about how they wish she would fail. no other reason for the hive to be in here but to seeth, this is a win for the navy one way or the other and clearly from the number of hive members in here and their comments that this win bothers them

      • RICHIE_RICH January 29, 2016

        No I think people are mad at the fact of how this shady deal went down. Y’all called the rollout of Beyoncé a gimmick,but yet y’all jumping for joy over this shady deal . I can’t .

        I like Rihanna and think she’s cool but Samsung was the saving grace for this messy era. To me it explains why it took so long for Anti to come out. Samsung had to work out the kinks for this deal. Think about it!!!! Now I will say this was a cleaver business move but shady. Hopefully it doesn’t come back to bit her in the A7zz!!!!!

        Sorry for My English I’m French Canadiane.

      • Blue January 29, 2016

        your english is fine, its not my first language either, i get your point but every fanbase came for gaga, and every fanbase came for beyonce not just the navy and some navy members like myself never came for bey for taking time releasing BEYONCE. my only criticism with (and this was well after a year of it being out) was how front-loaded it was because it was one of my main concerns as to how she was gonna maintain sales when she had made a video for every song at the very beginning.

      • LAZARETTO JACK WHITE aka PRINCE MACHIAVEL January 30, 2016

        @ Blue Thx, I Respect You And Love Rih, I Just Can’t How Most Of The Navy Was Mocking Gaga And Called Her Cheater, Gimmick… But When Rih Does The Same Thing They Are Happy, Cause It’s Wise, I Can’t With Double Standard.

        RATED R Is My Fave Rih Album And I Hope ANTI Will Grow On Me, Best Luck Sweet Navy!😘

    What utter nonsense. #politics

  150. How Many Drinks January 29, 2016

    @Richie Saying that we are seething just makes them feel a bit better. Theyve got a tough year ahead of them when th rest of this era bombs. We are sipping away at this piping hot tea. This is more deceptive and desperate than anything anyone’s fave has done. They will never live this down and I’m living for the utter hypocrisy!

  151. TheOuyonB January 29, 2016

    So many people on here are so upset about someone else’s money. Including Sam. Sam stays so pressed by Rhianna, I surprised there’s any life left in that body to breathe. It’s actually pretty comical. Any one that actually knows how things work in the entertainment industry, particularly the music industry, knows how things have changed and has somewhat of a clue as to where things are actually headed. Long gone are the days of the “traditional” promo train and release date and marketing direction. Artists have to get creative and take their careers into their own hands, which means conducting BUSINESS on your own and on your own terms. Major labels have held artists down too long and manipulated and compromised the industry to disappointing levels. I’m proud of Rhianna and her team for finding new ways to make things happen, MINUS a major label machine and their shady politics that are designed to hurt the artists’ creativity and pocket books.

  152. Knowles Carter January 29, 2016

    Anti is “platinum” but the tour ain’t sold out. Things that make you go hmmm🤔

  153. King B January 29, 2016

    So Rihanna and Gaga are the same now. Watch this album dropped like Gaga’s.

  154. How Many Drinks January 29, 2016

    @Blue stop being an over sensitive mess. Poor little Rihanna, people wishing her to fail bullish. People are dragging Rihanna on here first and foremost because her stans are hypocrites. The Navy were the biggest culprits who came for Jay Z, Beyonce and Gaga for either cheating or using gimmicks when your fave has just done both rolled into one. And not you clinging to how fast Rihanna has gone platinum based on NOTHING but shipping when you were also one of the stans trying to discredit Beyonce for front loaded SALES (KEY WORD). Honestly, you needs to just fall back and take the heat because the more you try to defend your fave the more you expose yourself for the fickle hypocrites you truly are.

    • HailBeysus January 29, 2016

      KIIIII DRAG IT TO FURTHEST PITS OF HELL AND THEN SOME!!! HAHAHAHA IM FUXKING SCREAMING!!! THE NAVY ARE BEING SCALPED FOR FILTH IM LIVING AND BATHING IN THE BLOOD YAAAASSS!!!!

    • tonygrahn January 29, 2016

      First, as a Rihanna fan, I want to say that anyone who attempts to discredit Beyonce’s sales success would be delusional. So I am with you on that one.

      Second, isn’t it established that Beyonce is a bigger album seller than Rihanna? Just as Rihanna sells more singles?

      Third, the RIAA certifies albums as “Platinum” based on shipping estimates alone. This is not at all an anomaly reserved only for Rihanna.

      Fourth, the industry is changing. Albums not only sell far less than they did a decade ago, but album sales are very inconsequential so far as revenue goes. Gaga sold a pittance of copies with ARTPOP, but made a lot of money on the back end thanks to touring. At least Rihanna (and some combination of Jay-Z, Roc Nation, and her team) are getting paid $30M for this risky feat.

      At the end of the day, everyone wins. IDK why some are so pressed (Rihanna fans included).

    • Blue January 29, 2016

      between the two of us you are the one being sensitive. i never said i 100% agree with what has happened but as a fan i can enjoy her win especially after the premature victory dance most of the hive has been doin up and down the anti posts. beyonce was front loaded something i was very concerned with from the very beginning of that era, but that is for another topic. and we all know most of the people in this post didnt need a reason to hate on rihanna and have been doing so even long before the samsung deal.

      • How Many Drinks January 29, 2016

        Honey how am I sensitive when the first comment you made was directed at what other stans were saying in this post LOL. And no its not another topic, so don’t avoid it. How can you trash someones SALES for being front loaded and then celebrate the speed of something else… AND when its not even based on the GPS investment, but a damn corperation? Because you are typical Navy hypocrite.

  155. DD1G January 29, 2016

    I’m not mad, this is pure comedy. Roc Nation saw the tragic trejectory Anti was headed in and cooked up this laughable scheme in a desperate attempt to cover up what would’ve been (and still is) a flop…and it looks BAD for Rihanna. What kind of in demand pop star essentially buys their own record? If I were just a little bit nicer I would feel sorry for her. But I’m vindictive so Instead I’m laughing.

  156. No favs, just here for the music January 29, 2016

    Huh? So those FREE downloads count as sales? I’m very confused

    what the hell lol

    • Blue January 29, 2016

      samsung paid for 1million copies and rihanna offered them up for free download and since technically 1 million units were moved, the RIAA which unlike soundscan counts shipment and not actual sales then decided to certified the album for 1million units sold.

      • Blue January 29, 2016

        must add that those units wont count towards the charts. what im confused about is whether on can officially claim rihanna to have sold 11million albums in the usa after this.

      • No favs, just here for the music January 29, 2016

        Ohhh ok. Makes sense. Thank You!

    That Reign tho

  159. RIP January 29, 2016

    Excuses,this was cheating.
    Did she not believe in her album or is she trying to get a multi-platinum album after 8 years.
    Had this been anyone else the navy would have so much to say.
    All of the anti era has been all bad,minus the album.
    It took Bey not even a full week to go platinum with actual real sells,not certification.

  160. LAZARETTO JACK WHITE aka PRINCE MACHIAVEL January 29, 2016

  164. Diora Couture March 3, 2016

    I’m late to the party, but i was seeing reads about how she bought the position/plaque. I am not a Rihanna fan, nor am I against her. So i guess my opinion is impartial: I guess TECHNICALLY she sold 1 million tracks, but it does not mean that ONE MILLION PEOPLE bought them. An not only that, they were bought wholesale to be given away.

    So, I’m sorry, but i don’t consider that an achievement that needs to be recognized, but hell, if someone payed me $1.00 for a song of mine (or any product I sell) and they bought 1 million, well then OH HELL YES I AM TAKING THAT. She laughed all the way to the bank, while ya’ll are here carrying on about technicalities…. the fact of the matter is that she got paid cash and it really doesn’t matter to her if the MILLION SONGS are given away entirely or not….

    That being said, it is a sad day in your recording career when you cant GIVE AWAY 1 million downloads.
