1. She's coming of a very successful era, dubbed the "biggest pop star"
2. No major leak, only about a week before.
3. She's been around since 2005, she should be established by now.
4. Every single minute on the radio a Rihanna song is on.
She should be able to push over 250k just on her name alone.
The funny thing is every time Rihanna debuts with a new album and it misses the top spot there is a new speculation as to why it didn't hit #1 by the Navy.. now it's because her fan base is bigger in the UK then in the US. Yet............ she has 11 #1 singles in the US I am missing the logic girls.
Not only this, the so-called speculation includes some people thought WFL is from loud instead of TTT. That's why they bought loud. Yeah it might be, but how many of them? Is that enough to put the album into 200,000k?
Well, Rihanna isn't gonna' drag herself, someone has to do it.
This is just a classic example why an artist like Rihanna really doesn't have the luxury of
taking a break, because the moment she's off the scene, it's like she was never there.
She doesn't leave an impact and her singles always leaves the public wanting
something more from her that she can never deliver. It's disappointing and
almost sad, really. Six albums in and nothing to show for it but some
successful singles with no lasting impact.

Doesn't matter if you have 5 #1 songs on the radio if people don't KNOW you have a new album out. .
How is that possible? When you hear so many songs of an artist on the radio, if you like them and you are confident the artist is worth it, you go to the store and ask for the latest release.
