The competition between Beyonce and Rihanna has made its way to iTunes UK.
Though a large number of unsold tickets has seen Rihanna’s ‘ANTI’ tour struggle to keep up with Beyonce’s ‘Formation’ venture, the ‘Work’ performer is currently outperforming her on the aforementioned tally.
‘Work‘, supported by the rapper Drake, shot to #2 on the chart following her live delivery of it at last night’s BRIT awards. This, despite its parent album being on course to becoming one of her lowest selling sets in the market in which her third studio album ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’ was certified platinum…six times.
Meanwhile, Yonce‘s Coldplay-led jam ‘Hymn For The Weekend’ sits two spots beneath it at #4 but two spots above Adele’s ‘When We Were Young’ which resides at #6.
As for ‘Formation’? Its buzz cut status means it will not serve as an official Beyonce single, only released to spark interest in the icon’s stadium tour.
Why said tour’s success may spell trouble for Rihanna?
