Why is Rih lacking a classic album, massive tour, etc?

321 posts in this topic

Rih is the biggest female popgirl of this decade, she has hits after hits, but i don't get why she lacks a classic album like 21, Teenage Dream, The Fame Monster, Selftitled or 1989. A massive global tour with 200m+ like Beyonce, Taylor, Gaga, Katy. She hasn't headlined Superbowl. I can't remember right now, but i think she hasn't topped Forbes. 

 

It seems a bit strange since she's one of the biggest popstars ever.

If Teenage Dream is a classic album then all of RIh's albums/ mixtapes are classics.

Hardly. 

 

The album has iconic singles and Umbrella is a classic. But the album as a whole is forgotten.

GGGB isn't a classic album. It definitely has some major hits, but the record itself isn't

All her work is equally in quality, she hasn't peaked with one album, her whole career is a peak :clap3:

She lacks impact and most of her hits are quick little hits!

Also, she releases new songs all the time and her albums don't have a specific identity (since she doesn't write any of her songs and just collects songs meants to be hits) so I don't think people know which song belongs to which album :skull:

She only has one good album (ANTi) and it wasn’t her commercial peak. Her best songs seem to be broken up with weird releases. She’d be better off getting a classic GH than a classic studio album.

TD spent 236 weeks on B200. GGGB spent less than 100.

Ya really need to stop with this narrative, especially since her songs on her last ablum lasted longer on the top 40 than most of your faves lead singles...

Okay, I love Rihanna and I don't know why the OP is at her throat like this, but Katy definitely has a classic album (Teenage Dream)

 

If anything alone, the fact that it had 5 #1s cements that

I know right? That rat thinking it knows better than music publications including kings P4K :ahh:

 

OT: GGGB is a classic. Rated R is too, arguably. Hey, maybe even and Loud?

The thing is, “classic” albums are usually associated with an artist peak, while with Rihanna, she seems to be riding that pick for 10 years already with no signs of stopping anytime soon.
