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

The setup...

Reminder that only 2/9 of her albums have gone #1.

I am basing it off hype. I have never seen so much hype for an album on Twitter ever. Nearly every other day there’s a viral tweet about Rihanna’s comeback. Her stature has somehow grown since not releasing music and she’s more respected than ever. No matter what she releases, people are going to eat it up. 

 

I can’t imagine she will debut with less than 600k. She’s going to smash streaming records. 

 

I don’t see how me complimenting Rihanna and saying she’s going to break records has been twisted into me shading her or trying to ignite feuds… like, you really can’t win. Even if Rihanna doesn’t do what I said she’s going to do, does it really matter at this point? She’s going down as a pop icon and one of the best selling artists of all time. 

 

I’m just having a bit of fun with predicting because I’m excited for her album too.

Not twitter hype... lmao.

I guess Normani's album is also coming for 600k.

There’s a difference because Rihanna is an established artist with many years under her belt, with a proven ability to sell and market herself effectively. 

 

Let’s not.

I feel like so much hype and time has passed shes at a very critical point where she needs to deliver and smash to the heavens or else the hype will quickly go down the drain a la Adele's 30.

By smash to the high heavens, do you mean a lead single that will be #1 for like, let’s say, 10 weeks? I think she can do that.

No, it won't. I have no more hype for the 'album' in question. The Navy has been in drought so long that all that is left is a desert. Hopefully Riri drowns the desert in water with a release date, because the girls are withered.

Rihanna is the cloud and the navy is the lizard. Sun dried to crisp and dead for dehydration.

That's the point. She doesn't have that song. That's probably why it takes forever to release the album.

Now you’re trolling.

 

I don’t think anyone disagrees she’s going to smash but you’re setting expectations way too high, which would only make her comeback not as impressive if it doesn’t reach said goals.

 

And hype, let alone TWITTER hype? May I remind you of Lorde’s Solar Power?

Idk I love Rih to death and R9 is my most anticipated album ever but I feel like she waited too long. I hope I’m wrong though

Even smashing streaming records will only get her to 300-350k at the very most if she exceeds every single expectations (the female record is below 250k if I'm not mistaken). She has never done more than 238k pure sales, even in a MUCH better sales climate. Either you are delusional or you are clearly setting her up.

 

Rihanna has always been about longevity. When (/if) she releases R9, it will obviously be her biggest first week ever, but she's not getting 600k. I'd imagine a 400k debut and an ANTI-type chart run with excellent longevity.

I recall OP saying 30 was gonna sell more in its first week than Lover, Folklore, and Evermore combined. I wouldn't take them too seriously.

Her streaming numbers will be monumental for sure. Will probably break records. Not Taylor or Adele level pure sales tho that's not her strength

Actually I did not. I still remember how even the other Adele stans thought you were setting her up and accused you of being a troll.

I was actually the one telling people to temper their expectations with regards to 30. I actually predicted her streaming numbers very accurately and vividly recall arguing with anti-***** in the album thread about how he was highly overestimating her numbers in what is a very different time in the music industry.

I was also quite accurate with my Renaissance predictions.

 

I don’t see why this should be any different. I am very good at gauging hype and predicting debut numbers. 

 

Don’t hate me because of that, please. That’s all I ask.
