Lies. The Beatles never gave away millions of free digital copies and claimed them as sales.

Damn amazing but as much as I love Rhianna this is bullchit - the Beatles made timeless music for all ages Rhianna makes pop culture trendy music for today.... kudos to her just the same!!!!!!!

I dont care what no one says Billboard or fans, that "Work" song is the absolute worst!!! Her fans should demand more from her vocally, listening to her sing is worst than listening to Bey talk.

At the end of the day it's at #1. Timeless? NO. But it's what ppl are streaming and playing (still) on their radio. IMO it's more of a summer song. But good for her!!! I didn't care much about this album but Work did better than I expected

Records just don't sell in the same quantities as in the old days.

There's no comparison, really.

She could easily be called the hooks Queen as well.
she provided hooksfor T.I.’s “Live Your Life,” Jay Z’s “Run This Town,” and Kanye West’s “All of the Lights” has proved that she could do the same among music’s heaviest hitters.
Another collaboration, last year’ FourFiveSeconds, featured not just West but Paul McCartney. Sunday, Rihanna led the crowd in a triumphant singalong, asserting her position at the song’s center. She then went into “Love On the Brain,” an “Anti” standout that has an old-soul feel, its lamenting over a relationship that hurts so good given added by Rihanna’s Unique vocals.
Kiss It Better a stand out ballad in which Rihanna’s commands are trailed by a juicy guita tune closed out the night, with her powerhouse singing and assertive lyrics playing off the longing of “Stay” in a way that showed how Rihanna’s independent spirit had only grown stronger while under the spotlight.

How great it is coming to terms with the knowledge that you are in America, and being mentioned in the same sentences as the Legends before her. What other Artist has did as well, call no names bear no blame. Rihanna is doing her thing, and could care less what
11:40 is bitter about with their worthless butt.

I'm tired of hearing about the beatles. Blowing smoke up their ass to be relevant while taking better black singers of that era. Good for Rhi.

@6:36 say what you want. Im sure you Carey nut around in your mouth. Mariah is still the bitch who will be first on the list of accomplishments when it comes to female singers. Nobody can ever take away her achievements. You bitches STILL mad 26 years later. Gtfoh

6:36 maddd tripping. #2 (Faded) on her last album she set everybody straight that she still got it. I will say her live game aint the same from the 90's but she still sounds good. She should be appreciated while shes still here. All we got is MC now that Whitney gone

People be really begrudging Rihanna accomplishments , and always trying to talk them down. There is no other who has had as many hits since The Beatles, Mariah, and others , and Rihanna is the hit maker of this generation, and one would think the Butt shaker would be the one kicking at Mariah heels.

Anonymous said...

Really this has nothing to do with Mariah, everybody with a working brain know that Mariah is a Living Legend, and the world also know that Rihanna is the next best thing with hits and shes the one Kicking
at Mimi heels and is the next in line for the most hits, Unless somebody with a fat bank account can some how manage to buy themselves more Hits than Rihanna has already earned. You weak dirt bags can't stand to see her reach these new and great Milestones , its eating you alive that is why Mariah name is mentioned. Rihanna matching the Beatles has nothing at all to do with Mariah great success at all, Haters.

Second to Mariah, that is really something huge.

Beyonce is dragging behind in hits I wonder why.

She is going to cause people to stroke out over her
His-tTo-Rih making. Tell me haters what can you do about it, but try to kill her and her fans with that Keyboard.

Mariah sure will be first on the List as Female
Achievements, and Yet Beyonce has more Grammy's then she has, and Beyonce Tours are bigger then Mariah's will ever be. So first on the List as far as Females go for some thing and dead at the bottom on other things like Tours, and chart success, because Celine, Madonna ., Whitney,Britney,Cher, Streisand then are all huge Sellers of Music, and they shall not be denied.

Rihanna has the dumbest, most tone-deaf delusional fans in the world. Comparing her to the Beatles is an insult to the Beatles.

J Ray said...

@11:02 chart success? Mariah is at the top off a lot of chart records especially concerning females. You're delusional.

She earned $26 million in 2015 and did not
Tour.

Keep talking that talk, and she still have a total of 59 weeks in the top spot during her career. Only Mariah Carey’s 79 weeks is ahead of Her, and The Beatles. They are followed by Boyz II Men with 50 weeks and Usher with 47 weeks stay pressed.

I'm laughing my azz off at the amount of people who come on her spouting stats on record and tour sales... really you have that much vested in these artists that you know their financial breakdown to the penny...I loved Whitney Houston's music but I sure as heck don't love it enough to look up what her sales are cause I don't care my only interest in them is the music they put out their finances don't impact me so why waste time looking it up. These same number obessed "fans" will curse me out for pointing out that their fanaticism is flippin bizarre as hell...

Rihanna additionally joins Carey as the only artists with four
songs each that have led the Hot 100 for at least seven weeks. Carey established the club with a quartet of titles that all spent at least eight weeks at No. 1

Rumored new make up line coming by Rihanna, no wonder Beyonce is tripping so hard with that camel.

Her History making is on top, and all she need to do is keep doing what she love, and what she's getting paid to do. It is something to be doing what you love, and making music history all the time. It is also great to see your name mentioned among Legends, Past and present.

When was the last time the rump shake made music history news.
