Rihanna Readying New Single ‘Sledgehammer’ For ‘Star Trek’ Movie

Published: Friday 24th Jun 2016 by Sam

Rihanna‘s ‘ANTI’ era has been strange by most counts.

Launched amidst chaos and calamity, the campaign’s staccato roll-out scored a huge win with the release of ‘Work’ – which topped the US charts for 9 weeks.

And yet still, album sales have been so-so. Streaming has been the LP’s saving grace; routinely adding up to 30k to its 9k weekly sales average by way of  in equivalent sales-plus-streaming units (SPS).

To combat the critics and maintain a Top 40 presence in the absence of any more ‘Work’-sized hits, RiRi has been releasing singles not found on ‘ANTI.’

The first came in the form of Calvin Harris hit ‘This Is What You Came For.’ And now, she looks set to unleash another.

Full story below..

Last night on iTunes, a banner appeared touting the debut of a new RiRi song named ‘Sledgehammer.’

The track is said to appear on the soundtrack for the ‘Star Trek: Beyond’ movie.

Interestingly,the 28-year-old tweeted what appeared to be lyrics for the song two years ago

Could Ms. Fenty be gearing up to dust off an old song for fresh success?

Stay tuned.

    Rihanna girl do what you do best… Release generic single after genetic single!

    • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy June 24, 2016

      Hey it’s not like she used the Captain Planet of radio producers from Just Blaze, Diplo, and the Weeknd to Mike Will, and Rae Sremmurd, yet still can’t get her songs to actually get played on radio…

      • wrosy3 June 24, 2016

        I feel like Jay do not have rih best interest the people mess with her album release this would never have happen at Def Jam it was disorganized release rih work too hard for this to happen her best album and people in the industry kiss Beyonce ass and disrespect rih accomplishments I think the critics are bought to give her good reviews Beyonce albums are not great or even that good it’s hype over quality and people in the industry are afraid to like rih album Wendy tacky Williams is the only one in the industry that tells the truth about bey without kissing her ass

    • LISA LEVINE June 24, 2016

      SHE IS A WASTE OF OF $1.99 ON ITUNES

      • wrosy3 June 24, 2016

        Your p**** sell for less than than

    • Rihboy June 24, 2016

      Lol no what she is about to do is slay the girls in 2016. I feel so bad for them. She hasn’t let up once..furthermore this is for start trek! Already know this is ticketing up the charts! You will seethe infinitely as she just drops all year long. I’m just confused?! Keri Jolson and Nicki both tweeted lyrics from the song? Maybe Keri wrote it and Nicki is rapping in it. I hope Nicki was just promoting and not in it. Nobody needs miss nursery rhyme plugging herself into every dam. Song. If Keri wrote it I know it has magic too it.

    • HALF AMAZIN June 24, 2016

      @BeyStan your comment being first speaks volumes. Good day to you

      • BEYSTAN_ SINCE 1997 June 24, 2016

        Good day to you too boo ?

  2. IStan4Rihanna. June 24, 2016

    If you’re going to try and throw “shade” at least make sure you’re on top of the news you’re reporting considering this was announced 2 days ago.

    .

    That single cover is EPIC nonetheless; I cannot wait to hear what this song sounds like!

    .

    WORK = Global Smash.
    Needed Me = U.S smash.
    TIWYCF = Global smash.
    Too Good = U.K smash.
    Nothing’s Promised = U.S/Urban smash.
    .
    Rih, sis… Keep it coming!!!

    • Bey&Rih June 24, 2016

      You know what, I really like you. You always come with the facts, and even when the hives try and discredit Rih’s success (who I’m a fan of as well), you always take the high road,and point out Bey’s accomplishments. It’s so sad the hive obviously feel threatened by Rihanna as if it’s said in stone that there can only be one successful black female artist at a time. I mean look at the first comment on this story. They run in to discredit Rihanna as if they know her personally,and she did something to their momma #Sad

    • HALF AMAZIN June 24, 2016

      Right. TGJ tries to shade when they are late with the news. How does that work? The Stan war click bait is so tired. The idiots who keep falling for it are even more tired. If you dummies would stop responding, they wouldn’t do it.

  3. #JACKIE June 24, 2016

    SINGLEShanna!
    At least she slays the hot 100.

    • coockiness June 24, 2016

      Can Ciara even release a single at this point she’s been drop so many times from so many record labels I mean even Jojo has a record deal 🙁

      • #JACKIE June 24, 2016

        Why are you worried about Ciara? I gave Rihanna a compliment.

      • coockiness June 24, 2016

        Why are you worried about rih?

      • #JACKIE June 24, 2016

        I am commenting on the topic. Ciara has nothing to do with it. You’re late b**** go away.

      • Tori June 24, 2016

        Ciara was let grow from her previous label because she asked to be. And with Epic Records, LA will tell you like he told ppl who have asked him Ciara left Epic. He didn’t let her go because they’re friends but she didn’t like the way he handled his business. Don’t shade if you’re only give to give your opinion.

    • Datreddone June 24, 2016

      Rih has not left the hot 100 nor the billboard top albums chart in over 6 months!

      Needed me is 7 on billboard slay! She still can perform well with her own singles aswell as albums!

      Wembly is sold out 91k stadium
      Anti is a masterpiece album and has been listed by many outlets as one of the years best albums! Rih is slaying she is the only artist slaying over multi formats on radio top artist in the world on iTunes and Spotify!!!

    • Rihboy June 24, 2016

      She slays both the hit 100 and 200. She collects awards and breaks records consistently. All while touring, booking, fashion empire, and now movie empire. It must feel would to arm for someone who is a complete let down. Cerror is now a joke. Ha been a joke. Will forever be a joke. Tell her to step her bands up and her accolades. Because she surely will be forgotten. No legend there.

  4. The Thot You’ll Never Be June 24, 2016

    Woah slow down biitch
    .
    All these singles haven’t even sold more than 5 million combined (from work to This is really what you came for?)

        What I don’t get how can Beyonce sell albums and not one song becomes number one adele got a hit with her albums drake Taylor Rihanna

    • The Thot You’ll Never Be June 24, 2016

      It sold less than half of 4, less than Artpop and The PinkDick. ….. A little more than Robotney Jean

      • FC/JC June 24, 2016

        Not Robotney Jean! XDDDDDD

  6. Suicide Blonde June 24, 2016

    I don’t know, this got to be the most uninspired year in music, seems like all artists are tired even of themselves, there’s no passion, none of them seem interested in good music, like they try to experiment and that’s cool but the music sounds uninspired, the best example of this are “Anti” and “Lemonade”, yes the music is different but still uninspired, just me being honest.

    • BEYSTAN_ SINCE 1997 June 24, 2016

      I honestly think Bey and Rih could take a break! I can only imagine the pressure they have to up hold the torch for black women in mainstream pop! However it’s a new batch of girls on the sideline ready to lick that milk so that is anther factor to keep them going!

      • Suicide Blonde June 24, 2016

        You didn’t get my point, they’re both seem uninspired, in all fronts, music, promotion…..

    • The Thot You’ll Never Be June 24, 2016

      Lemonade’s Metacritic score says otherwise

      • Suicide Blonde June 24, 2016

        Everything these days is overrated, I listened to the album and I was shocked that such ALBUM has so many good reviews, no shade, like I said just me being honest, same for Anti, there’s isn’t a single song on those albums that I like, that says a lot since I stan for Rihanna.

    • Yes June 24, 2016

      You’re so gross on so many levels. Please take your cesspool, fake, try hard ass back to that Madonna blog. Like someone said before, no one here likes your foreskin smelling ass. Bye.

      • Suicide Blonde June 24, 2016

        Typical.

      • Yes June 24, 2016

        Typical of your racist ass. Powerful black musicians has got you pressed…Bey, Rih, Usher, MJ, Janet, and so forth. Every post you enter regarding these Legends and icons, nothing but negativity comes out of your mouth.

      • Suicide Blonde June 24, 2016

        Being honest is being negative now, listen I’m not a fan of those people you mentioned above, except for Rihanna maybe, well not a fan but I stand for her, I give those people credit when needed but sorry the music has declined drastically for both Riri and Beyoncé, that’s it.

      • Yes June 24, 2016

        Stfu.

    • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy June 24, 2016

      I believe ANTI to be her most expressive and exciting work yet. ANTI is an album where an artist, who is seen by mainstream masses, to be nothing more than a pop puppet transcended the genre of pop music. At a first listen, I wasn’t crazy about ANTI as it was not a traditional Rihanna album, but once I saw her live at the ANTI Tour, I was blown away. She now has a message that she wants to present which is to be remembered. I mean this girl did a Tame Impala cover and did it better than the original! I don’t know how you can listen to Kiss It Better, Love On the Brain, Same Ol Mistakes, and Never Ending and not feel inspired.

      • Tori June 24, 2016

        I’m just now getting a feel for Anti but if this is most “personal” and “artistic” record then I would prefer the “generic” Rihanna. It just doesn’t seem like a legit album, like you have to be smoking weed to listen to it. As far Lemonade, that was a HUGE let down. From the promotion to the visuals & music. I think this project was something she didn’t put much thought into until it was time for her visuals and tried to create this story. I’m very disappointed in both ladies as well as Usher because he just not even trying anymore hes just fulfilling his contract. However, I did buy Anti hard copy, I like album packaging and booklets, & I did streamed Lemonade till my Tidal subscription ran out.

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy June 24, 2016

        @Tori Yes, you are right about ANTI, you do need to smoke some weed first which is why James Joint is an interlude as the second track. She’s saying light up a spliff with me and let me take you on a journey. From the trash talking element of Consideration, the baby making smash of Kiss It Better, to the 60’s experimental rock of Same Ol’ Mistakes, Rihanna is pushing the boundaries sonically with this album which becomes evident in songs like WOO and Pose. I for sure can say this about ANTI, it may not make a lot of sense to a casual Rihanna fan, but give it two years then turn on the radio and it will begin to

      • What Now June 24, 2016

        Me too @ISpeak. Anti is her best.

    • wrosy3 June 24, 2016

      Go make your own music then if you can

      • HALF AMAZIN June 24, 2016

        Shut the f*** up wrosy. You find a way to interrupt an intelligent, applicable assessment of music cuz you’re an idiot. Just be gone!

    • BEY>RIH June 24, 2016

      ?? Go listen to Beck’s album or Rebel Flop you closeted racist.

    • Coolness June 24, 2016

      You see Suicide, people would actually be more welcoming of your criticisms of you didn’t come across as pretensious all while giving off an air of White supremacy in your comments regarding certain Black artists. It’s easy for you to mask you opinions as ‘just being honest’ but we’ve been hip to your racist a** ??.

    • Cinnamon Girl June 24, 2016

      I agree totally. A lot of the legends are dying out. We’re basically left with talentless crap

  7. The Realest June 24, 2016

    Rihanna literally took a damn near 4 year break! I remember she said “everything will all hit you at once.” AND SHE WASNT LYING. Wtffffff! Why y’all think everything is super calculated? She’s not beyonce (someone who over thinks everything & does shits strategically), she probably recorded HUNDREDS of songs during that time period & wants to release 20 of them then that’s okay! 16 from anti & 3 features plus a single for Star Trek! Do your thing Rih. There are no “rules” in this industry! Y’all were complaining when there was no new music and now we have ALOT to choose from. 2016 has been an Awesome year for music. Reminds me of like 2007 when everyone had hits

    • The Thot You’ll Never Be June 24, 2016

      She also said it would be timeless
      so yeah….

      • HALF AMAZIN June 24, 2016

        When people are talking about it when your ass is ashes, the point will be proved. So…..yeah.

  8. coockiness June 24, 2016

    You know if you know ur fav is winning there is no need to stalk the competition and constantly throw tired shade. The beyhive needs to stop being so insecure.

    • Bey&Rih June 24, 2016

      This!!!!

  9. Kate Marc June 24, 2016

    She’s doing too much tho

  10. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy June 24, 2016

    Rihanna is like that lover who won’t let up. Sure she puts it down right, but damn she won’t let up. Let a n*gga catch his breath. She just keeps coming with hit after hit after hit…

  11. Briano June 24, 2016

    I love Rihanna she is truly a breath of fresh air

    What I appreciate her most for is staying focused on her music as she has truly been putting out great music consistently

    I appreciate that she hasn’t used her platform to attack, put down, gloat and hurl colorism on the masses

    Immmma yellow bone…. Garbage
    Rih was raised better and has more substance as a person.

    Her genuine kindness comes through and I would love her to be my friend or family member she is solid gold and I hope she never changes

    Can’t wait to hear more as her stuff is not reliant in visuals or controversy she gets what music is about

  12. Anti&Lemonade June 24, 2016

    How do you know something isn’t timeless when it’s only here for a couple of months ?

    • SWISH June 24, 2016

      they don’t. a lot of the beyhive members are delusional and think that any music that isn’t beyonce won’t be remembered

      • BEY>RIH June 24, 2016

        Irreplaceable, Halo, and Listen are three of the most remembered and covered songs ever. “To the left, to the left” alone is more remembered than most of Rihanna’s number one singles. The only rihanna songs that will be remembered 10 years from now are Umbrella, We found love, and maybe Diamonds. That is literally it. You guys are blinded by the amount of #1’s she has. Her music is not as timeless as Beyoncè’s.

    • Anti&Lemonade June 24, 2016

      Beyonce as a solo act only have two “timeless” songs for now = Crazy in love, Singles Ladies
      Rihanna have so many more but they act like Beyonce’s discography its more timeless than Rih’s. What a mess

      • SWISH June 24, 2016

        lol according to their nonsense logic, everybody that isn’t beyonce is beneath her

      • Keri Qween June 24, 2016

        Rihannas music is better and they will have to deal. I always said ANTI is better than Lemonade and it is. Beyonce always has PR and the industry to kiss her ass and hype her up but overall id prefer to listen to ANTI. Rihanna doesn’t give a f*** so the industry won’t hype ANTI up like Lemonade. She’s not the “safe”choice like Beyonce is.

    • What Now June 24, 2016

      Truth

  13. B2B June 24, 2016

    Smart move… You all have to understand, this streaming/ digital era is all about demand! Why wait 2/3 years to drop new music? Drop it, if they like it then it will get streamed and it will chart. KUDOS to Rih, she playing the game well.

  14. B2B June 24, 2016

    Question, I wonder why Needed Me did not do as well as the singles with features like Work and TIWYCF? Same way 45S did way better than BBHMM & AO…. Would say promo but that’s not it.. And what ever happened to LOTB?

    • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy June 24, 2016

      First off, Needed Me was only serviced to urban radio; it has just recently crossed over to Top 40. Plus, Needed Me has excessive profanity and songs with profanity never do well at the top of the charts. Therefore, its success is only streaming and urban radio. FourFiveS did well because it was the first single. American Oxygen tanked SOLELY because of Tidal. By premiering and promoting it through tidal, it became a business conflict for Apple, and Clear Music, which why it did not do well. BBMM was a club anthem, but was not made for radio. Have you heard it on the radio? It’s damn awful. Roc Nation should have sent a better edited version to radio. On top of that, the mainstream needed a solid pop smash hit before accepting a trap banger. Like in 2012, they accepted Pour It Up, because they already had Diamonds and Stay. In all, I think Rih’s team could’ve done a better job on the rollout. I think Roc Nation is too concerned with Rihanna vs. Beyonce instead of one. Rih’s music is good but it’s release was all over the place, and a solid release is needed in today’s industry.

      • B2B June 24, 2016

        All I got from that is Rihanna needs a radio hit for mainstream to support her, a pop radio smash to be exact? 45Seconds wasn’t big enough? x2 platinum hit with features, the normal recipe. Tidal Exclusive? so was FORMATION. So was Lemonade. I think its a lack of radio deals this era. Def Jam has radio on lock and that is why she was so dominant when she was on that label.

      • Ayyseify June 24, 2016

        BUT SHE ISNT WITH DEF JAM DUMMY

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy June 24, 2016

        @B2B Formation and Lemonade is the definition of the word FLOP! ONLY You HIVes preach and claim that it was a success when it’s truly abysmal. Beyonce premiered a movie on HBO on a free weekend right before its highest rated show on the network and FAILED as it didn’t even have close to 1 million viewers; I mean the Kardashians do at least a milli a week. Plus, the album sold drastically less than its last album. On top of it all, the album has tanked on ALL charts! It’s only saving grace is the BB200 which is “magically” continues to sell with no music relevancy. I mean she can’t even get her music played on urban stations. OT Genesis and Dej Loaf currently get more airtime.

      • BEY>RIH June 24, 2016

        Its bîtches like you that give the navy a bad name. How can the album be no longer musically relevant and “magically” selling if its still int the top 5 on BB200 and itunes. People are BUYING the f***** album and not streaming the singles. Accept that your fave flopped harder than Artpop this year. Also Sorry is currently slaying urban radio.

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy June 24, 2016

        It’s “magically” selling as there’s no cultural relevance behind it; It’s like the event came and went because its not hot in the streets. No one is listening or talking about the music outside of men who use the word “hunty.” Are people buying it or is Beyonce buying her own album just to save face? Also, Sorry is the biggest proof of the failure of the album as the song has no mainstay whatsoever…It’s been falling from the charts since its release along with every other song. Whatever relevancy that is left is all fabricated hot air and hype

      • BEY>RIH June 24, 2016

        LMAO well I wish Anti could “magically sell” as much as Lemonade but unfortunately it hasn’t reached the “culturally irrelevant” album in sales. Lemonade will continue “magically selling” along with her tour tickets….

    Yes she can sell an album, even after giving away A million copies.good day.

    • Speak on it June 24, 2016

      Lol Those pure sale say otherwise.

    I will never understand how a Nicki minaj fan can come for Rihanna ? …. not in 2016
    Nicki minaj career level 2016 = Rihanna career level in 2007

  19. Shane June 24, 2016

    She’s putting to much out at once just to get number one single to hide that anti inst selling . So kiss it better and needed are the current singles . And this is what you came for is generic trash that white people eat it up . And nothing is promised just came just too much .

    • SWISH June 24, 2016

      the only people that care about how much anti is selling are miserable stans that don’t even like her lol .. everybody else is just enjoying the music

  20. Anti&Lemonade June 24, 2016

    Her fans are happy …the other fans we don’t care.
    Nobody ask yall to listen to it, but since Rihanna awake your curiosity yall rush to listen to it then put the hater face and try to come with shady explanation…
    Rihanna can do whatever she likes since WE the fans we are here for it .

  21. Keri Qween June 24, 2016

    Its a song for a soundtrack not a single that’s the wag i perceived it yesterday. Anyhow y’all are just mad that she can release a lot of music and still get hits from multiple songs.

    ANTI is doing just fine for an album that was given away a million times. Her streaming numbers prove that the consumer is interested in constantly having the album on rotation .She will be at 500k early July i predict with how sales are and then she’ll be gold in pure sales and that lame drag will be retired.

    • IStan4Rihanna. June 24, 2016

      I genuinely am not bothered as to whether or not she scans “gold” in pure sales this time around because…
      .
      1) The album was given out to millions of people for free on the main day of purchase which affected it’s sales thereafter.
      .
      2) It’s currently sold “1,224,000” in SPS in the U.S.A and has sold “1,090,000” worldwide to date.

      .

      As one of only FOUR albums released this year to sell over 1M WW to date, that is a HUGE SUCCESS to me.

      .

      Furthermore, ANTI is a streaming juggernaut and is about to cross the “1 Billion” cumulative stream plateau in a few weeks alongside the multiple hundred-million streams her songs have received thus far.

      .

      I’d be mad too.

      • Keri Qween June 24, 2016

        The “gold” drag is the only thing the haters have so far but your right. To give away a album a million times and still be able to cross 465k US and a million copies worldwide is great.

        And ANTI is one of the best selling albums of the year even in pure sales! I remember you posted that list

  22. IStan4Rihanna. June 24, 2016

    No. Rihanna is not releasing “too many singles” at once.

    .

    1) WORK has now finished it’s run.
    .
    2) KISS IT BETTER underperformed and has now completed its short and unfortunate chart run.
    .
    3) NEEDED ME is at #7 on the Hot 100 and is continuously rising on every metric every week; it’s #17 on overall radio and has finally permeated Top 40 radio after ONLY being serviced to Urban and Rhythmic stations where it’s currently at #2 and #5 respectively.

    .

    TOO GOOD, TIWYCF and NOTHING’S PROMISED are her collaborations with other artists for THEIR albums – only TIWYCF can be argued as a “Rihanna” track considering she’s the only one singing on it.

    .

    Thus far, from ANTI, she has only released singles and has performed LOTB which is a mere, popular, album track.

    .

    The fact remains that their is demand for Rihanna right now and she’s pleasing her fans by releasing these songs – if you’re not fan of hers, why are you bothered?

  23. Speak on it June 24, 2016

    I enjoy some of rih’s music but I enjoy dragging the nazí because they are in every Bey post saying BS. They’re even people on this sute that claim Bey is no longer relevant, “belongs im Vegas” “the new Janet” etc yet she has the best selling and most acclaimed album of the year and the biggest tour of the year. We all know Bey doesn’t excel in singles like Rih (for certain obvious reasons) but Rih doesn’t excel in albums and tours like Bey. Also I find it funny how the Nazí keep using this “gave 1 million copies away” reciept but when the Hive use “Bey music is not on Spotify, Youtube, or other streaming sites” reciept, its labeled as an excuse?!?! Its obvious that Anti would’ve sold more without the messy release and its obvious Bey would have huge single success if her singles were on streaming sites. All in all they both are slaying this year in their own lanes, it is just more impressive with Bey!

      How is Bey slaying when she releases a movie on free HBO weekend, right before the premier of their highest rated show, and the ratings don’t even scan one million. The Real Housewives of Atlanta do better that! On top of that the album is selling exceedingly less than self-titled. With every Rihanna album, Rih has consistently pushed first week sales with every release. Plus, the album has spawned no mass cultural effect thus its music is not played on radio. When Drake and Future dropped WATTBA, the songs were so massive that the radio played whatever songs were hot therefore making the singles themselves; however, the same cannot be said for Lemonade which I know must be a hard pill to swallow. People want to go to a Beyonce concert, because she is an amazing performer, but don’t get it twisted that its anything else like her new music.

      • BEY>RIH June 24, 2016

        How can compare an album that has been out for 7 weeks to an album that has been out for 2+years? In that case Anti has sold significantly lower than Una, TTT, and Loud. Lemonade is gearing up to outsell 4 and outsold your overratedass fave’s abum in a f***** week lmao. You can keep claiming her music is not culturally relevant anymore but fact is her album is outselling rihanna’s by a lot. Its sad that she is being outsold by an artists whose music “isn’t relevant”. And the artists whose “music isn’t relevant” is performing to 45k+ people on her sold-out stadium world tour. It has currently grossed 96 million with 18 dates.

      Has Lemonade’s total sales passed Viewe first week sales yet? So how is it the best-selling album of the year. Sit down!

        Its sold more than Anti and is surpassing Views in PURE SALES.

  26. LB June 24, 2016

    Yassss, and it is written by Sia, they work great together. Cannot wait.

    Perks of owning your own label, you can release music whenever you want.

  27. B2B June 24, 2016

    I just love love love how the Navi act like 4 was not out a whole month before release and it manage to sell 1M+ with not a top 10 in sight…. No streaming or nothing. KUDOS to 4! Yet Anti doesn’t need to sell because she gave 1 million copies away? Wait what? People been leaking music since 2000, and for the dummies I am not saying Anti was leaked.

    • SWISH June 24, 2016

      ^^^ dumb hive logic trying to compare an album that was leaked to and album that was willingly given away for free

        People didn’t have to pay for either one of them ya dumb f***. So what’s the big difference? Please elaborate.

  28. BEY>RIH June 24, 2016

    Lemonade and Anti are my favorite albums this year and although Anti isn’t her most commercially successful era, I think she has became a pop icon with this era. I think Beyoncè became a young legend with this era, and they both are two of the most important music figures in the world.

  29. LB June 24, 2016

    Screams, Harry Styles has signed with Columbia.

  30. LB June 24, 2016

    Sony is sleek, they swiped both the One Direction boys. Universal was sleeping..

  31. B2B June 24, 2016

    Now Lemonade is a FLOP…. although its the highest selling album released this year with pure sales, #3 in US… So Anti is what exactly? And be clear Rihanna has not always pushed her 1st week sales further with each album. UNA sold more than Anti first week. FORMATION was a top 10 single on billboard and sat perched atop the itunes store for an entire week. And you cant compare Bey to Future and Drake, her album scanned PLATINUM in pure sales WATTBA did not. around 300K? B does that first week. And so what if the HBO special didnt pull in 1 million viewers? The album pulled in well over a million listens soo… I still say B won.

    • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy June 24, 2016

      UNA sold more than ANTI, but I didn’t know that UNA was given away to ONE MILLION people plus being leaked… On Lemonade, you still have not addressed the point where Lemonade is selling less than her previous release. That’s not the case for Adele, Taylor, or Katy even. The acts that are selling less than their debut are Meghan Trainor, Ariana Grande, and Lady Gaga…. Also, I love how you tout Formation to being a hit, when it was a BODIED by a song that was released 12 weeks before it, and let’s not even discuss the trainwreck of Sorry…

      • BEY>RIH June 24, 2016

        Lemonade has sold nearly 2 million copies WW. That is more than any other album released this year including Anti-sales. It is on track to outsell 4 whereas Anti is on track to be rih’s lowest selling. Sorry peaked at #11 on hot 100 and is a big urban hit. It will rise because of Vevo.

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy June 24, 2016

        I’m tired of arguing with delusional fan who thinks this is a “slay” http://www.billboard.com/charts/hot-100

        Let’s revisit this conversation next year to see which body of work has more longevity.

      • BEY>RIH June 24, 2016

        Im tired of arguing with dummies who can only use reciepts of singles. F*** the hot 100, how is the album doing? Has it reached 500k pure sales yet? Has it reached 1 mil WW. How is the tour doing? Has it grossed 25 million yet? Singles, singles, singles is all you and your flop-fave is good for. 1.29 vs 17.99? ??

  32. DIABETIC STROKE June 24, 2016

    Anti isnt a flop! It just didnt sell”-Rihstan. Taking into account all possibilities Anti is STILL a flop. U can add streams TEA Samsung its numbers are STILL LOW. Lemonade is approaching 2 mill wwAL sales… 1.1 mill US ACTUAL SALES & 6 mill ww RECORD sales… even the latter for anti is lower than that of lemonade after 6 months with HITS. Why is a Hit-Less album from an elderly touring act selling more than cANTI HYPE? Where was Antis 12 tracks on the Hot 100. When Frihscedule can get an 1 minute INTERLUDE to chart call Diabetes & send me frih Insulin, i promise i wont rihfund it, ill even purchase a Anti Ticket… im sure theyre still avaliable.

    • Ayyseify June 24, 2016

      I knew ugly pig boy was coming in here to flap her tiiiiittttsss

  33. LB June 24, 2016

    So everyone was complaining about how camp 25 is, just listened to it and I think it is better than 21. Most definitely a fantastic album.

    • BEY>RIH June 24, 2016

      Horrible taste…. No wonder why you stan for Frihanna lmao.

  34. Ayyseify June 24, 2016

    I’m here for my anti deluxe plus plus. I mean she gave me those song from home ost, 4,5s. Bbhmm, NiP, tiwycf etc slay rih I’m getting my life!

  35. DIABETIC STROKE June 24, 2016

    Lemonade sold dispite being FRIH to over 1 mill ppl on HBO… and dispite floping on HBO if u wanna go there. ALL ALBUMS ARE FRIH lol. NO EXCUSE for flopping with a 9 wk #1 and multiple top 10s. Lemonade has only TRAP singles so far that havent even achived much popularity compared to Work. Lemonade cost LITERALLY 2/3rds more than ANTI and still sold more in 4 days US & 2 weeks ww. Also outsold Views with simalar if not bigger singles success as Rh making it best seller of 2016 so far, streaming is only about charts not sales. And at present only ONE album has been hailed as competition to 25 grammywise and thats lemonade which has a way higher critic score than all mentioned albums. Why becuz it is a body of work and has more personality & direction. Also talks about diffrent, not just a relationship like fatdele & Rihscedule or Drake. It has depth unlike Anti which is about What exactly???

    • Ayyseify June 24, 2016

      Lol Beyoncé finally opening up about her life after multiple albums and you girls using “depth” excuse because of this one? Lol BYE!

    • JOHNVIDAL June 24, 2016

      Absolutely everybody of a certain level would be selling like crazy with a long running #1. Beyonce would, and even people liek Madonna, Mariah Carey or Celine Dion would even now at 50 years old. Rihanna just cannot because she´s more on the JLo category. People may use some catchy tunes and neevr take them seriously, meaning they would never go crazy about actually buying their albums as a must-do thing. Has never happened and will never happen.

  36. DIABETIC STROKE June 24, 2016

    http://www.mediatraffic.de/albums.htm Lemonades lyrics are def its strong suits. Still perched at #2 on ww chart (only becuz of a new release, last wk was dangerous Flop i think). Sold another 75k this wk more than Nick Jonas DEBUT wk & poor views from the 666 is only number 6 lmao. But thats not even the worse part cuz they no longer consider albums out the WW top 10 so anti is no where to be found whereas 25 is. If “KOOLAID” only cost $10.99 would it also flop like FRIHSCEDULE??? I bet it wuld sold 2 mill us alone by now.

  37. DIABETIC STROKE June 24, 2016

    460 first wk & 460k first half/a/year is the new FrihScedule standard. Idk how rih will top it R9 when Anti part II drops Bey betta duck for cover! The new Day dubbed Friday will be a masacre via Rihsceduled. *Twerks to 6 Inch* *Claps to daddy lessons*

  38. Navy Captain June 24, 2016

    If Bey gave out a million+ free copies of lemonade I would love to see her sales!! Rihanna is still scanning gold after 1.4 million free albums. Your fave is barely scanning platinum at all.

    • BEY>RIH June 24, 2016

      Rih has not scanned gold and if Lemonade was on streaming sites its SPS would probably push it to 2x platinum and 2.5 million WW. Your fave is a flop. Why else do you think she is releasing 193751906523 singles?

      • Navy Captain June 25, 2016

        Rihanna a flop? Lmao. Sit honey. I think you’re coming down with something. You’re delusional.

  39. truth teller June 24, 2016

    The only relevance Bey has is linking herself to Rih
    in this imaginary competition

    most are OVER Beyonce. She had her time now she needs to just sit down (and her fans)

    • Speak on it June 24, 2016

      B**** shut your section 8 ass up, you sound dumb as hell.

  40. Duffster Lovato June 24, 2016

    All you sinking ships are the reason the hive shade Rih, I like Rihanna but she should NEVER be compared to Bey, Bey is miles ahead of her in everything (asides the singles department) oh and Bey knows exactly just what she’s doing cause Sorry might get added to other streaming services. Can’t wait for the new Rih song.

  41. JOHNVIDAL June 24, 2016

    Another single????? LMAO Her fans always get mad when someone state facts but it is true. I´ve said it many times and it´s been like that for years. She releases like 6-7 singles per era in a desperate attempt at getting at least one #1. That´s all she has. Albums and real success and respect never come to match any of the singles. A joke.

    why do the rihanna fans always shading ciara and her fans when they just gave her a great compliment on her charting and saling singles yall are some bullies.

  44. Mark111 /.\ June 24, 2016

    Ok Riri, you’re kinda over doing it a bit. Anti have at least 3 more singles on it. But it’s Rihanna, she knows what she’s doing and movie studios tends to push their soundtracks, so she may have a 16th #1 hit on her hands, another top 10 for sure.

    • BEY>RIH June 24, 2016

      Has Anti sold 500k pure sales yet?
