Report: Rihanna’s ‘ANTI’ Set To Sell 95,000 First Week

Published: Monday 1st Feb 2016 by Sam

Rihanna would be well-advised to grab the nearest umbrella. Because when it rains, it sadly pours.

Find out why below…

With new album ‘ANTI’ reduced to a $0 price-point and given away for free as part of a Samsung promotion, it’s no surprise that its subsequent Platinum plaque (issued just 24 hours after release) would put its first full week of sales under ample scrutiny.

Earlier today, Billboard offered their projection. Yet, moments ago Hits Daily Double weighed in with their own two cents.

Per the ever-trustworthy outlet, here’s how next week’s releases are shaping up:

Rihanna (Westbury Road/Roc Nation) 95-105k album, 120-130k SPS
Kevin Gates (Bread Winner’s Association) 75-80k, 80-85k
Sia (RCA) 70-75k, 80-85k
Charlie Puth (Artist Partner Group) 45-50k, 60-65k
Dream Theater (Roadrunner) 23-26k, 25-27k
Tedeschi Trucks Band (Fantasy/Concord) 17-20k, 18-21k

************

All gags aside, we almost feel sorry for fRih.

The music industry being built on smoke and mirrors is a reality that pre-dates her arrival on the scene. However, this whole episode is playing out like a cautionary tale. Which one? The Importance of Knowing When Not To Push One’s Luck.

Why the rush to scan Platinum when that has never been a reality for the star’s hit-led albums speak less this smash-free effort? After all, most of said preceding projects have opened in the ballpark of 200k (1/5th of this Platinum she speaks of).

If indeed backed by such momentum, surely that would massage sales beyond the initial “million”?

Adele literally sold a million in her second week. And, even when positioning this fiasco in the context of recent big openers from the likes of Justin Timberlake and Beyonce, their post-debut numbers were solid (and up to 5x more than 95k).

Again, speaks to the ludicrous artificiality of the whole ‘ANTI’ roll-out.

    Umbrella girl nooooooooooo!

    • Cough Cough February 1, 2016

      The album does have a few songs I enjoy and I’m not getting paid, either way so I really could care less

    • justme February 1, 2016

      Its crazy to me that riri can’t sell any albums becuz of her broke fans. Jay z magna carta sold over 500,000 the first week and that is with the Samsung giveaway.. So don’t blame it on Samsung blame it on the so called fans

        Ok, I’ll probably will get crap for this , but I’m giving my honest unbias non stan opinion about this Anti situation. First, Anti is not a flop. The streams were high , really high. iTunes refuse to promote it and yet it’s stil doing well. The low numbers are due to the fact Billboard counted the leaked album , by this point their #s were in. Tidal screwed up badly. Keep in mind Beyonce and friends are also Tidal affiliated. We’ll see if they have prominent #’s during their releases. The predictions are expected to be between 125,00 to 200,00. This is a predictiononly. Not facts. Stop the stan crap. The reality is that most black artist are not pulling big numbers like Adele because black people don’t buy music. I think Rihanna is one smart cookie. Samsung buying her albums is no different than a girl scout selling all of her cookies to one person. It’s still a sale! Now, the winner is Rihanna. Why? SHe was able to give TIDAL it’s best numbers since it started, she still sold 400,000 copies via Tidal AND she’s still selling on itunes. Samsung gave her 25 million and a tour. Good night!

      RIHANNA IS A FRAUD. ON EVERY LEVEL.

  2. Rihboy February 1, 2016

    I mean she gave away a million downloads. What did you guys expect. ?

    • Smh February 1, 2016

      Her team gave it away so it could go platinum they knew exactly what they were doing a bunch of scammers

    • Barb B**** February 1, 2016

      I expected more from the black Madonna, biggest artist of the decade, digital queen kiii

    • Thruth Hurts February 1, 2016

      4 leaked in full 1 month ahead of it release it did 310k first week Selftitled sold 1mill in 10 days yet the third week numbers were 320k no excuse y’all girl FLOPPED!!!!!!

      • Rozel February 2, 2016

        First of all, Rihanna took a risk by releasing only digital copies on Tidal. If she had released on all platforms at the same time her numbers would have been better. In my opinion, Rihanna was used by tidal as the scapegoat. They never would have done this to Beyonce. Roc nation messed up with Rihanna. Def Jam would have never done her like that. I know she gained 25 million in a business deal. But I would have rather seen Rihanna do a flawless release and command her sales the natural way for the masterpiece that was Anti. Maybe she should have given away he free copies at her concerts.

    • metzo February 1, 2016

      Lmaooo the excuses!! I cant.
      Again, ‘4’ did 310 first week even after being leaked for not just a day, not a week, but a whole MONTH prior to official release! THE MOST illegally downloaded album in history of music.
      Save the excuses slavi. Yall trashed “4” but ohh Karma. Lamooo still CRINE

      • Cupid February 1, 2016

        4 wasn’t given away. This isn’t bad. She gave away 1mill and still managed 100k in 3days

      • Citi February 1, 2016

        Actually the most illegally downloaded album(s) are Blackout and Femme Fatale by Britney

    • FC/JC February 1, 2016

      We expected her to not purchase a certification, leave the gimmicks at home, and sell like a true boss for this serially delayed, yet much anticipated album.

        weren’t ppl talking about Ciara album bundle being on groupon (for $15.00 btw, full price) so now y’all can laugh @ this giveaway with flop sales & 8 rooms, Super Bowl promo & 55 mil followers on twitter

    • Chaka Yonce February 1, 2016

      Whoop chile! See what you happens when you cheat.

      • Rozel February 2, 2016

        Got nothing to do with cheating, we all know Rihanna would have sold well, if she wasn’t trying to save tidal. People rushed out and streamed the free copies, which goes to show the demand was there. Even the so called h8ters couldn’t resist copping their copy. Yes something might be free but someone has to still go out of their way to accept it like millions did. Rihanna would have sold. Her fans always had her.

    • ? February 2, 2016

      I repect her for releasing the way she did, she basically bought the album for most of her fans. Who cares about sales when u have the heart to do smething like that, and her album is Platinum so the hate coming from this blog is a joke.

    • Rory February 2, 2016

      Exactly!!!!! Why is SAMantha comparing other artists’ sales like they gave away a million copies for free??? He knows damn well that if Beyoncé gave away a million copies, that her first week wouldn’t be as big. Let’s be realistic here

  3. Islandboi80 February 1, 2016

    Wait if anti is platinum how come it’s only selling 95k ..

    • Smh February 1, 2016

      It’s selling platinum because of the streams, the album was pre bought by her Samsung deal so it automatically pre qualified for 1 mill copies. Her fan base and Samsung claims people had to go redeem it online in order to qualify. I seriously don’t believe 1 million people downloaded that album sorry

      • Smh February 1, 2016

        I actually love the album btw but, I hate the blatant disrespect tho to other people who actually work hard and try to put out good music but can’t even hit 100k cause they don’t have the same team Rihanna does. The navy DRAGSSSs other artist relentlessly using the tired ass 13 #1 singles, but wants to turn they eye to the truth. If rih team had not inked this deal with Samsung what would the album sales really be looking like……

      • Face February 1, 2016

        You don’t really have to believe anything, but Samsung and RIAA reflect the change in how people consume music, which means this is reflecting every artist. Everyone wants to talk down when she still sold actual downloads within her usual first week sales margin (100 – 200K). But what’s in black and white trumps opinions. Remember that.

    And this bush had some nerve to laugh at Ciara! Like Charlie Sheen said See You On The Way Down

    • Rihboy February 1, 2016

      But Ciara debuted at 19 k. Furthermore couldn’t get nobody to sponsor that garbage Jackie. So I don’t get your comment.

      • Cinnamon Girl February 1, 2016

        But your girl Riri has only sold 460 albums so far! Ciara hasn’t ever sold that low before! Bloop!

      • #JACKIE February 1, 2016

        LMAO Ciara got you bothered BÌTCH!! #R9 will do Nelly Furtado numbers and that’s why you’re mad kii. #RIPRIHRIH

      • Rihboy February 1, 2016

        460 copies the last 20 minutes. What are you not understanding.? Rihanna still has a week to go before her official numbers debut. Jackies numbers were given a week before it debuted with the ultimate low. I’ll see you in a week and let’s see if you will still be singing the same tune. I know my fave is in a mess right now. However stop trying to convince yourself that anti will seek worst than anything Ciara has put out.

  14. Barb B**** February 1, 2016

    Where is @ScaryQueen clinging to the ‘Tidal only, not a full week’ excuse kii.
    ….

    You told me to read the Billboard article and this is what it says.

    …..

    Industry forecasters expect Anti to make a big leap up the Billboard 200 chart next week — possibly to No. 1 — after the album has a full week of activity behind it. Prognosticators suggest Anti could shift around 125,000 in equivalent album units in the week ending Feb. 4, which could power the album to No. 1 on the chart dated Feb. 20. If Anti hits the top, it will mark Rihanna’s second No. 1, following her previous studio album, 2012’s Unapologetic.

    ….

    What is the excuse?

    • ? February 2, 2016

      Its still not a full week dummy!

    • Rozel February 2, 2016

      Exactly these people can’t even wait a full week for everything to be tallied before celebrating. Okay so what if her first week sales are low. Still won’t change the fact she got 25million dollars and was able to give to some of y’all for free, that you happily accepted and now turn around trying to throw shade. Rihanna is still 25 million richer than last year, has added another top ten hit to her catalog with work and will go on to sell millions of copies around the world. So how is that a flop, you broke people? Y’all can’t even begin to live on Rihanna’s level. She still winning.

  15. Big Nuz February 1, 2016

    This is just embarrassing. Rihanna sis, you’ll never escape from this one.

  16. Hur February 1, 2016

    Kiiiiii

  17. #TeamTinashe Stan February 1, 2016

    if Samsung didn’t buy 1 million copies than her label would be pissed! But you guys have to be honest this is low but do you really think she would sell this much if she didn’t leak her album? She should be fortunate as some struggle a lot to even go near 50K these days.

    • Riri, the Clown Fka Pray for the Youth February 1, 2016

      The fact that Rihanna would have sold more had she not have done the free deal is irrelevant when Jay did the same thing and still sold over 500k and over a million people already had ‘4’ before it was released and it still sold 300k first week. Millions of people had ‘4’ weeks in advance but 300k still bought it. Kendrick Lamar’s TPAB got leaked a week before, still sold over 300k. It’s the same thing. If Rihanna is supposedly the biggest pop star or most international or whatever the navy likes to call her, a leaked album shouldn’t be an excuse for such tragic projections. This is only a testament to Rihanna’s inferior ability to sell albums.

      Yasss boo remind them I’m living for those meltdowns

  25. No favs, just here for the music February 1, 2016

    The fear of flopping is obviously what made her take this route.

    It’s similar to a security net. “If she does actually flop just blame it on the free downloads” plus Samsung purchased a guaranteed 1 million of her albums so it’s a win-win for her despite how shady this all is.

    Honestly I’m guessing she would have sold around the ball park of 195-250K without the Samsung deal. But like a said before we’ll never know for sure and it is what it is.

    I feel like a broken record pretty much just saying the same s*** over and over. But I think I’m done with this mess of a topic.

    Moving on…..

  26. Thruth Hurts February 1, 2016

    I’m all here for the navy and r**** getting dragged all the way back to barbados remember how they talk s*** about 4 now their so called timeless era album can’t even do half it first week numbers. She tried to do pull a Self tilted a failed miserably Karma is a b**** kiiikiiii

    I can’t even feel bad for Rihanna because she scammed everyone with that deal and had the nerve to boast about it.

      Lmao nice try Markiesha! The Queen didn’t need a billion dallor industry to buy any of her albums. Consumer’s purchased her album over a course of 10 days. Looks like Rihanna will have to wait 1,2,3,4 years for REAL sales to give her a platinum certification by actual people. Hahahaha

      • King Mark111 /.\ February 1, 2016

        Translation: Samsung didn’t find Beyonce marketable to promote their phones. But Samsung and Sony are tech rivals and Sony would never let Samsung use THEIR slave to promote their phones. Because Master Sony own the masters of Beyonce and her maid. Rihanna is her own boss, her own label, her own masters.

I mean I feel like Samsung and tidal basically r**** her career. Unless there is some back up plan. There is still the super bowl Grammy ad that I still don’t understand. Plus she posted that everything will soon be revealed. There is rumors about a second disk with the physical copy release on Friday. Idk. I know they have a big mess to clean up though. I mean I watched videos in Instagram if her and Melissa out and she doesn’t seem to be bothered by anything. I guess she got paid and said f*** it. Or there is just more to meets the eye.

  60. Coolness February 1, 2016

    First off, no matter how you spin, getting a corporation to purchase a million digital copies of your album to give away as free downloads is cheating. It’s not the same thing as people actually spending their money the album. Artists who’ve been notable for selling a million copies in their first week such as Britney, Usher, Eminem, Taylor, Adele and many more did not have two heads so who does she think she’s trying to play with these shenanigans?

    Secondly, Rihanna has never been a big album seller. That’s just the way it is as she has her own lane when it comes to singles. If she just put out the album the regular way and she still did these predicted numbers, I would commend her because she stuck by her guns and made it about the MUSIC. However, when you name your album ANTI because quite clear you’re trying to shed your Pop tart image by not blatantly chasing hits like you did in the past but then you try to take all these shortcuts to secure commercial success, it all just comes across as hypocritical. I have no issue with Rihanna and I’m quite liking the album but do better sis.

Samsung paid her 25 Million and also she is winning with Puma. Moral of the story, she is paid and could care less about criticism. Her pedicure costs more than anyone’s negative opinion.

This serves EPIC HUMBLE PIE for both Rih & the DEADvy. This DOWN SYNDROME album is false advertising anyway. THE album shuld be titled JAMES JOINT since the better songs match that title & the cover shuld have been that pretty pic of rih blowing and surrounded in rose paddles, its a CUTE album but ugly album title & cover (we all know rih wasnt cute as a child).

    And physicals hit stores on the 5th,

    That is roughly 1.495 million in the first week, impressive stuff.

    Plus she has masters, writing credits on every song and on her own label, so she is making upwards of 60% of sales (side eyes the 7% crowd).

        and how many albums is Clara in? physical copies is 95K, Digital is 1.4 (tidal plus Samsung) that’s pretty good. also stans I understand if it may come off as “cheating” but people aren’t buying music anymore. people rather stream than buy and streaming and listening to an album is like buying it. I mean people use paid services to listen to unlimited amount of albums they choose, so why can’t they be counted? the only reason music was physical was because technology and the Internet wasn’t as advanced as it is now. not making excuses for Rih because this affects all artists whether they are popular or not. this could benefit Clara as well you know

    @Tyler,

    $25 million / 1 million albums = $25 per album

    Plus released on Rihanna’s label, who owns her masters and has writing credits on every song.

    Self titled, $15 per album, Giselle only gets 7% as is standard with every Sony deal, ask Lisa Left eye Lopez.

        There is a brand premium which Samsung had to take into account considering the album and brand were used to market Samsung. Rihanna is the most marketable celebrity in the industry.

        This concept is beyond your scope, if you knew anything about marketing, you’d know how these type of deals are negotiated. Go back to your Giselle DVDs, this is one topic you cannot win.

    What kind of back fire? I’m literally screaming!!!!! So cocky and so rude only to sell half of what Nickis last album did. The shame is authentic darling!!!

      Where were you? You’ve been missing out on this massacre sis

  102. LB February 1, 2016

    Anyway what am I saying, this information is far too basic for Mark and I, and yet too advanced for the Hive to process.

    I’ll leave them to shashay and “yassssss” each other as they struggle b**** bop to ratchet weave shaking music.

    That’s all they are known for after all.

  103. Cough Cough February 1, 2016

    That that Rihanna Reign morphed into that FRIHANNA overcast. This takes the cake way over Gaga and her .99c gimmick. #FriannaForeva

  104. Slay_Hive February 1, 2016

    I almost feel sorry for her. This is so damn pathetic!! I thought she was the digital queen or something??

  108. Blue February 1, 2016

    man!! that is brutal. kinda hate billboard right now. dont even want it to be #1 right now. heres hoping the physical release helps keep the #1 spot for two weeks then

    • Marley February 1, 2016

      How can you be mad for them doing things fairly. They’re not here for helping your fave cut corners to mask her underperformance. It is what it is.

    • Tyler Makiavelli February 1, 2016

      So much tea, so little time lol

    • Blue February 1, 2016

      “Anti’s streaming debut on Tidal was concurrent with its availability — in a limited quantity — as a free download, supported by Samsung. Anti generated 1.47 million downloads globally in less than 15 hours. Those gratis downloads do not count toward the charts or Nielsen Music’s sales figures.”

      the 400k happened, billboard just aint counting it

      • Riri, the Clown Fka Pray for the Youth February 1, 2016

        Girl, Gratis means FREE! “Anti generated 1.47 million downloads”…”Those gratis downloads don’t count”. This paragraph you posted implies that the 400k weren’t legitimate sales either. If 400k people actually PURCHASED the album with their own money, Billboard would have most certainly counted it. Lies, lies, and more lies.

  109. Marley February 1, 2016

    Welp. I’m glad Billboard are doing it the right way. Camp Fenty and Tidal should have just sucked it up and dealt with it as honestly as they could have. All this propaganda and cutting corners just makes it look so much worse.

  110. WhosBad February 1, 2016

    Calling the hive poor and dumb won’t change the fact that they have enough money to go purchase Beyonce tour tickets and give her career defining grosses, buy her albums and take her singles to platinum. They pay enough money for her to out-gross your fave in every department they go toe to toe in. So what the navy should to do is regroup and ask yourselves why you stan so hard for charts and bragging rights BUT won’t put your money were your mouth is and support your fave kiiiii and for all these excuses they’ve all been clocked over and over again. Truth is Rihanna is not an album seller and she never will be people use her for a single or two and that’s about it and were is memo the dirty bootyhole that stayed arguing with me over Rihanna being a album seller and being able to go toe to toe with Beyonce? I guess that bitter tea was to strong for some of you kiiiiiiiiii

  111. Keri Qween February 1, 2016

    While y’all still in here, Billboard just confirms Rih as the second most successful female artist of all time

    Only second to Madonna ?where are your faves?

    • Barb B**** February 1, 2016

      Yet she hasn’t even sold 15 million albums lol. The damage control.

    • King Mark111 /.\ February 1, 2016

      I told them that months ago. Lol New Queen of Pop.

      • Barb B**** February 1, 2016

        #460. #FlopTour. What kind of Queen!!!

      • Keri Qween February 1, 2016

        King mark, Still breaking records none of their faves have while they sit on tgj all day

        I don’t think some of them have washed their asses today

        @welfare barb

        Onika struggled to sell out many venues on the Struggle print , don’t get cute because the hive+ is here sis. Yourself, the z squad and Roseanne hiding behind the hive+ like ALL of your faves last eras didn’t flop

      • Barb B**** February 1, 2016

        Awww you mad sis? But Rihannas ‘supposed’ to be the ‘NewQueenOfPop’ why is she struggling to sell her tickets already kiii. Why is her debut shaping up to be less than Nicki, Ariana and Demi Lovato? The goat hasn’t even reached 30.#460 #MadonnaWouldnever.

    • Danny Bey February 1, 2016

      In what solar system? Cuz certainly not the one we live in…

  112. DIABETES UNBOTHERED February 1, 2016

    I cant at these rih stans using this SAMSUNG DEAL as a way to justify ANYTHING about this era. LOGIC. samsung BOUGHF RIHANNA with 25 million… this makes her their SLAVE until she pays up. The tour Is mission 1 of the SLAVING. Rih doest Master her own music… she does however have MASTERS and they are … JAYZ ROCNATION & NOW SAMSUNG. Not to even mention her sidejob as Blue ivys Nanny & Beys own personal Maid.

  113. JanStan February 1, 2016

    Samsung seething to the gods at their flop investment lol. This was supposed to save the tour and it has done nothing but magnify the embarrassment that this rollout was. If week one is this bad week 2 gonna be KatRIHna level destruction.

  114. Love Life February 1, 2016

    The demise is near. I don’t think she will recover from this. She’s becoming too old for her childish bad gal antics and her sound is dated. Radio will start to reject her now she has flopped. People are not here for a serious Rihanna. She doesn’t even have the talent to fall back into other ventures. I knew this coming.

  115. Keri Qween February 1, 2016

    Again this hive+ talking about the quality of music I cannot

    When your faves last album was over sexualized trash

      • Barb B**** February 1, 2016

        Lmaoo the struggle was real!

    • Keri Qween February 1, 2016

      You’re an idiot

      Not you comparing one video to an entire album/era

      Has honeyflop made it to 300k yet? When it flopped you said you didn’t Stan for plastic del rey anymore that still true you bandwagoning b****?

      • Rosie February 1, 2016

        Why are you so worried about Honeymoon?
        Why do you care so much about who I stan for?
        All that matters is that Keri is a bigger slave than Herprihs and can’t even release an album after six years, nor can even sell out a Carl’s Jr. at this point.

  116. SWISH February 1, 2016

    lol .. the desperation to see this girl fail is very apparent and sad

  117. Barb B**** February 1, 2016

    Not the Big bird stan coming out to play when everyone’s leaving the post kii.

    • Keri Qween February 1, 2016

      Where’s the imaginary 3 million copies of the StrugglePrint that plastic minaj created?

      THe rest of us see barely 900k after a year, a tour and 20 solo singles+ features

      • Barb B**** February 1, 2016

        Why are you talking when Rihfraud couldnt even sell 500 copies of her album in one hour? Where’s the 400k that flopdal claimed Rihfraud had sold? Where are those ‘Tidal only’ receipts you were trying to drag with in the previous post, where is Rihfrauds authenticity?

      • Rosie February 1, 2016

        Make that three
        The album was put up for sale on Tidal Thursday @ 9 pm.
        Three hours:
        BEYONCE – 80,000+
        ANTiCHRIST – 460
        Bird’s next album – like 12 copies

      • Keri Qween February 1, 2016

        She sold the 400k dumb b****! Go read the billboard article. It states she sold 1.4 million they’re just not counting it

        I was referring to the 460 copies y’all were trying to drag with and like I said.. Its still not a full week we’ll see exact sales next week and the following week when physical sales are added then we can determine the era

        Worry about Strugglenikas past two albums not making a million copies not Rih

      • Keri Qween February 1, 2016

        Roseanne has Druggie Del Rey recent album reached 300k yet?

        It dropped 12 spots in one week you can’t drag nobody lmao!!!

        Death@ you comparing Anti, a tidal EXCLUSIVE (a flop streaming service)to the porno album which was instantly made available to the public, Anti was not

      • Barb B**** February 1, 2016

        Lmao. You’re keep telling me to read articles when I suggest you do the same. The 1.4 mill are FREE downloads butch. That’s why they’re not recognized not being counted. Stupid ass h**. Are you seriously that delusional to think Billboard would just pay genuine sales dust for no reason? Where is the 400k that Tidal claimed she properly sold? Why is your fave being clocked left right and centre ter for her fraudulent ass?

      • Barb B**** February 1, 2016

        And death at its not a full week. These tragic sales predictions are for a FULL weeks b****. You’re so f****** dumb. Thursday 28th-Thursday 4th. Do you understand?

      • Barb B**** February 1, 2016

        And why are you clinging to physical sales like that’s going to make any difference. Isn’t Rihanna supposed to be a digital Queen? Shes flopping digitally how do you expect people to rush out and buy the album physically when the hype is already dead.

  118. Anti(hives scared of R8) February 1, 2016

    Lol The navy remains unbothered.And we will have the last laugh.Visual album didn’t have competition or flop tidal. How can you compare Anti to beyonce’s visual album full of videos?Rihanna did the unthinkable and released around hurricane Adele,Justin Beiber etc.Anti was downloaded free yet still #1 on itunes, Anti will sell 1 million copies this week, bookmark me! Work isn’tgoing anywhere hos.Diamonds debuted at #16 on the BB Hot 100, Work #9.Its not on Spotify,there is no video,no promo yet it’s a top 10 hit.When will your favs?? I expected the dragging to be worse but the pest can’t even keep up with LB and King Mark. LB and King Mark stay dragging the pest.Go in!!!

    • Barb B**** February 1, 2016

      You should change your name now lmao

      • Anti(hives scared of R8) February 1, 2016

        Go find your fav a #1 hit

      • Barb B**** February 1, 2016

        Go buy anti. Or are you one of those cop outs who got it for free and then paid it dust?

    • Anti(hives scared of R8) February 1, 2016

      I purchased Anti and I downloaded it for free that’s why it’s sitting at # 1 on itunes.Niki is a flop sis.lol why are stans of flop b****** coming for Rihanna?? Lmao

      • Barb B**** February 1, 2016

        And yet TPP had higher first week sales than Anti is predicted.

      • King Mark111 /.\ February 1, 2016

        But is it platinum tho? Didn’t RIAA give like 17 artist plaques by including sales this week? TPP aka The Planned Parenthood album is not one of them.

      • Anti(hives scared of R8) February 1, 2016

        Rihanna’s record sales>>>>>>>>Niki who

    #ICANT. I’m over here grinning like I just got my tax return, but another part of me actually feels legitimately bad. Ugh. Riri. Stop playing with my good and evil sides like this! Anyway, this…is…tragic. We all knew this album wasn’t going to sell, but I still would have thought she’d do better than THAT. Embarrassing for all involved. Samsung better stop payment on that check before Anti crashes their stock!

  120. LB February 1, 2016

    LMAO Mark stop, you’re going to make their head hurt. They cannot understand that information.

  123. DIABETES UNBOthered February 1, 2016

    Lol i just realized my sales predictions were almost exactly RIGHT! Lmao i been saying for MONTHS that Anti wuld sell 98k first week. Only problem was i was aiming a little to high. And to think i thought i was just joking. Lmao now i predict the Anti tour will be only 78% sold out at discount prices.

    • HailBeysus February 2, 2016

      All Mighty Diabetic Orical, please tell us what dates of the Anti World Tour will see AntiSuccess. Surely some dates wi be cancelled.

      • DIABETES UNBOthered February 2, 2016

        LOL this will be THE LAST GIRL WITH A BLACKEYE & GONOREA TOUR all over again. I predict atleast 2 Rihsceduled dates due to severe depression (kii) only 1 canceled (due to a h***** flairup) and ticket slashes (aka tickets being sold for free). To fill seats.

      • HailBeysus February 2, 2016

        Lmfao!!! Riherpies flare up ???????
        Namu Sta great Oracle, your insight and wisdom is much appreciated.

  124. What now February 1, 2016

    SMDH the good thing is that Rihanna has never been a first week girl, so the sales can pick up, but this is embarrassing no matter what angle you look at it from.

  125. Grande the Way February 2, 2016

    Lol it’s funny how Mark was shading Ariana for My Everything going platinum due to streams but not that it’s Rihanna it’s a legit certification. Funny how that works. Even though Ariana’s certification came from PAID album streams. Anyways, Rih has been consistent for over a decade, she’s allowed one flop by now. And honestly, her team is to blame

    • Tyler Makiavelli February 2, 2016

      She’s had several flop albums ie Music of the Basin, A Thot Like Me, Rated X, Flop that Flop, and currently ANTI

  126. Always February 2, 2016

    If she hadn’t got on Twitter and gloated over that phony baloney “platinum” certification, I might feel bad for her having this utter train wreck. Her fans may as well stop trying to front. These real numbers are laughable/abysmal.

  127. ???Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans??? February 2, 2016

    I’m thinking that she should maybe release “Pose” as the next single, but she might have to promote it effectively to secure a top 5 peak. Radio will eat it up, but I’m worried about how long it’ll last on top 40 pop radio. It’s catchy, so it should do well.

  128. HailBeysus February 2, 2016

    Looking back at this post like damn! Not the Hive sun bathing on the Navi’s ship, while they float face down in the ocean lifeless and waiting for fish to eat their remains. ???????

    i will perch here on tgj for the next riherppes post. kiii

  130. Pat February 2, 2016

    I can’t wait until next week! The album is still platinum and her real “full week” numbers aren’t even in yet. Get a life people, her album was a success made platinum before your so called queen who will flop this time around, bye!

  131. B2B February 2, 2016

    1 thing and one thing only… 4 leaked in full weeks before the release date and still managed to triple this number!! And y’all shaded 4? And not to mention, this is Rih’s first album in four years! ?? No shade to Rih because she can’t buy all the CDs. Her fans ain’t s*** for this. Leaked or not the Hive still purchased 4.

  132. Rory February 2, 2016

    1 million copies were GIVEN AWAY FOR FREE….. Y’all expect the b**** to go gold first week or something after that?? Lol….. She ain’t bothered a bit. Her check got cut from Samsung, and when people REDEEMED those one million PURCHASED copies, that made it platinum, so she’s good lol.

  133. Rory February 2, 2016

    And where was all of this animosity when Jay Z did it??

  134. Oscar February 2, 2016

  135. briano 1 February 2, 2016

    The ONLY one that truly care about 1 week worth of sales are shix stains

    This is another one of beys destruction to music no one cared until thr Klan hit the scene

    Matthew studied the industry and this was a calcylated move yo purchasshse her albums ebsuri g no 1 than using it as if it signifies something it doesnt

    Its the music that matters you all have been programmed and sound like idiots not beytards

  136. Eldela February 2, 2016

    Stop with the excuse and rationalizations. When you clear out the smoke ‘n mirrors and market manipulation, ANTI is basically stillborn.

  137. JanStan February 2, 2016

    The big question is how long is this era gonna last? She’s not a legend like Janet or Madonna who can sell out arenas based on status alone. And she’s not Gaga who people check for cause of her talent even if you don’t buy her album. This is a mess for the ages.

  138. Mr. CEE February 2, 2016
