What made Kiss It Better flop?

Recommended Posts

Its clearly one of Rihanna's best singles and its so catchy and the video is so GP appeal, why did it flop so hard by only charting in few countries and peaking at #62 in the US (#24 on Pop)?

Needed Me annihilated it. The dual release was a mistake. It should have been the 4th single after Work, NN and LOTB

Work + Needed Me + This Is What You Came For + Too Good

 

Regardless, KIB managed to be 2x Platinum eligible in the US & Gold in the UK :clap3:

It released at the same time as "Needed Me" when bought of them were R&B tailored. 

 

Double releases dont work well for the same genre.

 

Love on the Brain going top 5 and not getting a MV was a travesty too

 

I question some of the decisions her team made with this era...

It deserved a better music video. The potential it has and she served THIS? No !

The GP’s ****ty tastes. But all in seriously having her singles release to closely didn’t help. KIB needed some space.

It didn't feel like a flop to me, I heard it on the radio constantly. but probably over-saturation . She had a lot of music out at the time

It was too good for the GP to recognize its true worth :cries:

And the Needed Me double release ate it alive.
