    depends really i mean she sells albums 2 , flo rida on the other hand i dont respect that much he cant sell albums at all
    No single & album are different, single has less profit than album. and you can have 10 #1 for singles but only 1 #1 album to called a success.

      She'll bring it. Mark my words.

        I think Rihanna will bring it and be very successful. And she's no longer a single's artist. Let's keep that for those who really fit that profile (i.e. Flo Rida, Soulja Boy, Jesse McCartney, etc.) This album was a statement that I am here to stay. I am so tired of people saying it took ... time for the album to sell this or that. Time doesn't matter, it's the end result.

        As Whitney said, "It's not how you start... it's how you finish." And I can say for myself as a Rihanna fan that I didn't buy her album until she "proved" herself to me. I bought it more than a year after the release and never bought any of the singles. I thought the album as a whole was great and it took people time to get to that point.

        If we're honest with industry cycles, we can say that we live in the time of big first weeks and quick falls. There was a time, for my real chart freaks, where albums sold whatever they did over time, not with front loaded sales. That testifies to your impact - the fact that it wasn't a fanbase that propped up sales - but that you won people like me over. And furthermore, she didn't do HALF the promo as some of these people out here. Did she take advantage of award shows, etc... of course, who wouldn't? But was she just putting herself out there and everytime you turned you saw her being overexposed... NO!!! She simply chilled in my opinion.

        I LOVE THIS GIRL!
        I was waiting for Bey to drop so she could show that T&A arent the only ones smashing album SALES!!!

          She definitly did a lot of promotion, which is brilliant i don't understand ppl who say some stars ar overexposed, well if u dont promote it how is it suppose to sell. I dont care if i was an artist i will promote my album till the last drop rerelease it as many times as needed. At the end ppl look at album sales not how much exposure u did to acheive that.

            Acts with more credibility tend to have more frontloaded sales. Rihanna is not taken seriously as a musician or vocalist, so her sales are mainly to ocasional buyers who decide to purchase her album after listening to songs over and over on the radio. Most of these people won´t rush to the stores and buy a new release from her, cause they aren´t consolidated fans, they will only buy after months and months of ongoing airplay.

            This is the type of artist that tends to be forgotten.

                I think every artist has promotion, to send to radio is a part of promotion, to get huge airplay or #1 is also a kind of promotion.

                    Is it safe to say she has sold over 50 million records worldwide(albums/downloads)? She has sold over 25 million downloads in US alone thats impressive,she may be able to join the 100 million sales group.

                            If she gets back with Chris I swear i'm going to limewire both their new albums. Getting back together will lose some support from both sides.

                              Does she have 25 mil singles in the U.S or worldwide? I think i read something wrong if she sold 25 mill in the U.S alone.

                                    *Note, she has 9 million selling singles in the US!! The most of any digital seller. Its astronomical success
                                    I think you can not count Live your life as Rihanna´s single in order of sales because it is a colaboration. That song was not in a Rihanna's Album.

                                          Rihanna's Worldwide Album Sales (my estimations)

                                          Music of the Sun (2005)
                                          USA: about 600.000 (gold)
                                          Canada: 100.000 (Platinum)
                                          Europe: 350.000-400.000
                                          Japan: 100.000
                                          Australia: failed to chart on the official charts. (let's assume sales of less than 10.000)
                                          Worldwide: less than 1.200.000 (shipped)

                                          A Girl Like Me (2006)
                                          USA: over 1.400.000-1.500.000
                                          Canada: Platinum (about 150.000)
                                          Europe: over 900.000 (shipped)
                                          Japan: 100.000+ (150.000)
                                          Australia: 70.000+
                                          New Zealand: 7.500
                                          Worldwide: approximately 2.750.000 (shipped) ==> must be almost 3.000.000 copies to date

                                          Good Girl Gone Bad (2007)
                                          USA: 2.500.000 (shipped)
                                          Canada: 300.000+
                                          Europe: 3.000.000+ (shipped)
                                          Japan: over 150.000
                                          Australia: 3xPlatinum= 210.000/ sales must be around 250.000
                                          Brazil: 100.000
                                          Mexico: 50.000
                                          New Zealand: 20.000+
                                          Worldwide: well over 6.400.000-6.600.000 / shipments must have almost reached 7.000.000 copies by now

                                          Approximately 11.200.000 Rihanna albums sold worldwide

                                          I took into account over 20 European countries to calculate these figures which are merely my estimations. Sales must be around there.

                                          Also, I didn't find any official announcement by Oricon but I trusted some other sites instead.

                                            Japan: over 150.000
                                            Australia: 3xPlatinum= 210.000/ sales must be around 250.000
                                            Brazil: 100.000
                                            Mexico: 50.000
                                            New Zealand: 20.000+
                                            Worldwide: well over 6.400.000-6.600.000 / shipments must have almost reached 7.000.000 copies by now

                                            Approximately 11.200.000 Rihanna albums sold worldwide

                                            I took into account over 20 European countries to calculate these figures which are merely my estimations. Sales must be around there.

                                            Also, I didn't find any official announcement by Oricon but I trusted some other sites instead.
                                            I like those numbers

                                                  Yes, I guess that I have underestimated US, UK and French sales a little bit.

                                                  BTW has there been any announcement about her new album?

                                                        For some reason I feel that you are relatively ironic towards me for no clear reason.

                                                        So I guess that I'll simply ignore you like almost everybody on UKMIX...
