    that is not true. there was only 1 rerelease which was the reloaded release, and every single released did not have promo. for example, dont stop the music did extremely well without promo.

    i doubt her next album will sell 7.5 she has the hype but will people be more interested in buying for single's more then her album.

    hype doesnt always = success

    I agree.
    You have the luxury of choosing loneliness. For some people, it’s not an option.

    She "performed" "DSTM" on Grammy 08 (and Umbrella too). And also on more 3 or 4 tv shows. She "performed" every single, even "Rehab". She released different versions of GGGB. GGGB Standard, Deluxe Edition Bonus Remix CD, Good Girl Gone Bad: Reloaded and one with a DVD.

    There is no way she will do 500k first week even BEP and Beyonce did not reach 500k first week. I think between 200k and 300k-350k first week max. She's not an album seller, it took her so long to reach 7.5 mill. She won't be 2x plat in the U.S guaranteed.She was never big in the U.S anyways plus her behavior after the incident has probably lessen her fanbase (since it's mostly girls that buy her albums and most girls are siding with Chris) at least in the U.S she will do fine worldwide. There's no way that the new mateial will be as good as GGGB. Regardless of singles the most she will do with the new album is 4-5.5mill max. I dont care what no one says your personal life affects ur success!

    This new album will make or break her career. If she does not bring it she is done. ( but she always finds a way to have good songs)

    I'm still surprised that she couldnt cross the 3mill mark in the states. with 3 #1's and 7 singles this shows that for her to even cross the 2 mili mark in the states her whole album needs to be released as singles!

    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.

    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.
