Rihanna & DJ Khaled Score Top 5 Debut With ‘Wild Thoughts’

Published: Monday 26th Jun 2017 by David

Rihanna, Bryson Tiller and DJ Khaled have nabbed a Top 5 debut with their smash hit single ‘Wild Thoughts’.

Though doing little to support sales of Khaled’s set ‘Grateful’, the song finds itself gliding to glory thanks to sales and streams generated by praise garnered by Rihanna’s performance in its visual.

Where it debuted? #4.

How? Pure sales of 89,000 units and 36.3 million streams!

Billboard adds:

“Thoughts,” from Khaled’s new album, Grateful, released Friday (June 23), and which samples Santana’s “Maria Maria,” a 10-week Hot 100 No. 1 (featuring The Product G&B) in 2000, marks Rihanna’s 31st top 10, the third-best total dating to the Hot 100’s Aug. 4, 1958, launch.

Wild.

    Why am I not a fan of Ri-Whine-A voice? It always sounds like an flat alto? 🤷🏽‍♂️

      Why am I not a fan of grannyonCe ? She’s a married granny with kids yet she’s always acting like an expired prostitute on stage ,exposing her p**** for the whole world to see including her own daughter

      maybe because rihanna is a hit machine and beyonce is….not.

    One more feature to the bag yay! What a memorable career with such tremendous sales “records” like this one and such unimaginable talent.
    Now seriously: are we really going to end having only one tremendous success (Adele) since 2010 by the time the decade ends? There is literally nothing on the horizon. Everything is basic as to imagine something with the talent enough and the universal appeal enough at the same time to do it like that.

      Honey just get your everlasting life like the masses clearly are anecdotal get off your soap box. YOu are always so sappy! YOu should stop hating causes wrinkles!

      I just stated normal thoughts. I don´t know if it hurts that Rihanna is not on that group of real monumental success stories or what is it, but all I said was valid and true.

    • miki June 27, 2017

      Going by that logic that only Adele achieved colossal success, I can tell the same about Michael Jackson compared to your faves. He was selling over 60 million of Thriller while basic, generic, one-trick pony Celine and Mariah couldn’t even sell half of it (he did it multiple times though). They are flops compared to him, not to mention that their disposable, horrible, stupid, retarded ‘music’ (failed attempt of re-making Aretha’s greatness happen) is rightfully considered a big fat joke and garbage by music critics. And in Mariah’s case GP agrees she can’t even sell out a f****** amphitheatre despite of 21645416541614646416 already forgotten #1 singles (not worldwide, only in the US though) fueled by massive payola bribed by Tony Mottola and cheap discounts at $0.49.

        Lmao youre an idiot. Thriller didn’t sell 60 million copies during its release, it sold that amount OVER A 30 YEAR PERIOD. And during that time both Celine and Mariah achieved their own colossal success-both earning multiple diamond certified albums and iconic hit ballads. and they all did it without streaming bullsh*t or billboard changing their rules every 5 minutes. thats john vidal’s point. Without billboard cheating & changing the rules for these new artists, Rihanna would have never made it past ‘pon de replay’. Thats why these modern day “records” theses current artists call themselves setting are a colossal joke.

    Y’all not gonna post about Tamar new video??

    • So Fresher June 26, 2017

      Huh? What are u talking about? They posted that last night after her BET performance.

  6. Meteorite June 26, 2017

    Seriously you guys need to go back to the old format because this new one is ridiculously slow and full of pop ups! And trying to leave a comment takes forever and a day!
    You guys should know it’s not working because you’re not getting as many hits in the comment section as you used to!
    Its okay to admit you made a mistake; Trail and Error.
    Now, PLEASE revert back to the old format!

  7. The truth June 26, 2017

    There was never a doubt that this song world be this high

  8. Slayriana Grande June 26, 2017

    Lazy vocal and physical “talent” wins again. Congratulations, Rihanna. Her industry obedience is still paying off.

  9. RihannaIsMadonna June 26, 2017

    Why are rodents mad? Was there ever a doubt that it would hit the top 5, we’ve heard it all lazy, alto vocals, goat but where is she today? Is she defeated her light dim? No but shines brighter. Eat humble pay and worry about your legacy as a troll

  10. RihannaIsMadonna June 26, 2017

    *Eat humble pie

  11. @ASAPicon June 26, 2017
