everyone has been talking about rihanna’s new release,
my opinion it?
i love it.
i’m actually listening to it now.
sidebar: “same ol mistakes” and “love on the brain“.
well its different from her usual.
some wanted more bangs and bops.
its definitely not radio friendly.
no “big singles” like her past work.
she decided to go in a totally different direction.
just how i like it.”
its not for everyone.
its “rated r: the mature version”.
i mean isn’t that what being an artist is?
well anti has gone platinum since its release.
( x entertainment weekly )
there was a lot of controversy with how she achieved it.
like jay’s “magna carta holy grail” release,
samsung bought 1 million copies of her album.
(she actually sold 400k without samsung)
many thought she cheated.
so when billboard posted this…
…and everyone who hates rihanna took this and ran with it.
“she wouldn’t have gone platinum!”
“even billboard recognizes she is full of shit!”
“at least our fav went plat without gimmicks”
it was a dragging shin dig up on twitter.
billboard posted this:
they were actually referring to the “kanyeanalplaylisttitles” hashtag.”
it was actually trending during the original tweet.
it was crickets.
notice the low number of retweets.
i reallllllyyyyy love when vindictiveness goes wrong.
congrats to rih on all this success!
lowkey: i kinda wish she did some interludes on the album.
on some “velvet rope” shit.
that woulda been actually really cool.
oh and sia new album goes hard.
