Rihanna’s new album is going to be biggest comeback of the century after 25. Agree?

She's got a super dedicated fanbase and, generally speaking, the GP seems to eat up her radio singles. I don't think it'll be the biggest comeback of the century, though, that's a bit of a reach. Sometimes, such a long break can do more harm than good as people move on, find new artists, etc. I'm pretty confident she'll smash tho!

It will certainly eclipse Renaissance, I have no doubt.

Let me just agree with this again so it gets carried over to the second page.

I would say arguably

but it is very possible because -streaming is really strong atm (keeps growing too)

-she is a streaming juggernaut

-lots of hype for her

-she Still top20 most streamed with no own music since 2016

 

She may break huge records

She’ll do well but truthfully the hype has died down for her to have the monstrously big numbers you and other users are mentioning. It’ll be one of those eras where if the music is good it’ll be big at first and then be extended by casual gp interest.

No. It can go either way tbh. Her pure sales were always bad. ANTi flopped

It will be big, but I don't think it will out debut the likes of Adele, Drake, Taylor, etc. Sales have gone down tremendously since 2016. Even the biggest artists aren't cracking past 600k first week. Taylor/Drake numbers are not the norm even for successful artists.


Also, Adele's numbers for 25 were rare and I don't think we will see that type of success replicated from an artist in a while, especially in this climate where sales are practically down for everyone across the board.

Oh no honey. This has nothing to do with Beyonce. It's just a clapback at OP's dumb statement that Rihanna will eclipse Taylor's numbers. If anything, Beyonce's numbers will be the only ones that will pale. 

If he wants to shade other artists he needs to know that his fave can be shaded too.

Albums success will depend on the reception on first lead single's success

She'll do well but you don't need to bring in Taylor into all of this.

+1 

 

I think Rih has a lot of hype, but her and Taylor don’t have anything in common besides the release of music. They can both succeed

I agree. Streaming and singles were always her strengths and she usually releases a lot of singles, so she will definitely be one of the top girls again by the end of her next era.

I understand people feeling like OP is a set up but realistically when Rihanna drops it’s going to be a massive pop culture event just based on her name alone. There’s no way she can lose unless the material is just absolute trash which has never been the case with Rih

I’m not sure.  She might have waited too long.  She was also never a frontloaded artist so I would not set her up like this.  
 

either way, I doubt we are getting an album.

actually , as long as she’s waited …. if it’s anything less than a mind blowing , moment capturing album it could very well flop. people have been craving music for her for so long that if it’s anything less than perfect she will definitely be lashed

 

but if ANTI is any indication , she can deliver on making the wait worth it

Good luck with booking that album you speak of :gaycat6:

 

There have been multiple scrapped R9s at this point, I don't know why y'all expect this one to be any different
