Are Rihanna hits bigger than Lady GaGa's?

Recommended Posts

I’m just wondering because I’ve seen many Monsters touting that Rihanna was a fad of the mid 2000s. But looking at stats, it seems like Rihanna's hits are more CONSUMED on a global scale.

 

Do you agree with this? Are Rihanna's hit singles more iconographic besides? Argue! 

 

And obviously, I’m posting the receipts as usual. 

 

Best-selling digital songs (all-time pure):
2. 2008 – Lady Gaga – Poker Face [The Fame] – 20,300,000
4. 2010 – Eminem ft. Rihanna – Love the Way You Lie [Recovery] – 18,710,000
14. 2008 – Lady Gaga ft. Colby O’Donis – Just Dance [The Fame] – 13,630,000
18. 2011 – Rihanna ft. Calvin Harris – We Found Love [Talk That Talk] – 12,960,000
21. 2009 – Lady Gaga – Bad Romance [The Fame Monster] – 12,270,000
31. 2007 – Rihanna ft. Jay-Z – Umbrella [Good Girl Gone Bad] – 11,400,000
42. 2011 – Lady Gaga – Born This Way [Born This Way] – 10,360,000
45. 2012 – Rihanna – Diamonds [Unapolegetic] – 9,840,000
47. 2009 – Lady Gaga ft. Beyoncé – Telephone [The Fame Monster] – 9,710,000
48. 2008 – Rihanna – Take A Bow [Good Girl Gone Bad] – 9,660,000

As you can see, Lady had a slightly higher peak but barely any consistency - especially when it comes to longevity and recurrent streams.

 

Most streamed artists (all-time):

12. Rihanna

44. Lady GaGa

 

Best selling artists, albums and singles (all-time CPSC):

43. Rihanna

69. Lady GaGa

That's all there was. It was a top 50 list from little monsters' favourite source

OT: I'm gonna have to agree with you OP! Now that we've learnt Taylor and Britney indeed have bigger hits than Lady, can she really compete with the most consistently relevant artist of our generation? Have liddos been overhyping her peak~ all these years?

Having more big hits = bigger hits overall. Having a couple hits here and there with no longevity is not.. it

I think their biggest hits are about the same, We Found Love/Umbrella/Love The Way You Lie matches Poker Face/Bad Romance/Shallow. 

 

Rihanna for sure has more smashas though so I think she has bigger hits

i'm not a stan so i'm gonna be unbiased and act like a local

 

Gaga: bad romance, poker face, just dance, born this way, shallow, paparazzi

 

Rihanna: diamonds, umbrella, what's my name, we found love, only girl, love the way you lie, the monster, where have you been, this is what you came for, work, stay, please don't stop the music..

 

yall.. Rihanna is the biggest hit maker in recent history

Well, that's not how I interpreted the question. I thought you asked whose singles had higher peaks but if u wanna compare Rihanna's 72 singles with Gaga's 33 then I will have to go with Rihanna too
