ANTI has sold 28,770 in 41 weeks, which is ~700 sales per week. With a new album almost guaranteed for this year, will we finally be seeing this certified Platinum?! *.*

Ooh, thanks for all that info, Jay! *.* I'll work on updating all the sales figures into the main posts soon happy.gif
Are you implying that We Found Love is irrelevant (because you're wrong) or that it hasn't "sold" a million copies (because it has)? Lol



Not at all We found love is one of the best tracks of the last ten years and a song that stands up there with the classic million sellers. I also think Only girl and Love the way you lie are pretty much classics.

- Work
- The Monster
- Four five seconds
- This is what you came for
- Too good
- Wild thoughts
- Stay
- What's my name

None of the above are classic huge songs their sales don't reflect their impact. Oh rather million sellers now are not that special and don't reflect those one of a kind success stories.

If you asked the general public to name a million seller I highly doubt they would say "Oh Wild thoughts by Rihanna!"

I'd consider What's My Name? a worthy million seller / classic personally! wub.gif

Also to be fair This Is What You Came For was one of the biggest smashes of 2016 (5th best seller), and 3 years is a little too early to be able to properly determine what will go on to be a memorable classic!

Wild Thoughts is not a 'million seller', it's a 'millionaire'...

I loved This Is What You Came For at the time of release I think it was a two or even three week #1 in my chart. I rarely go back to it now though and whenever I do all I can hear is Taylor Swift in the chorus laugh.gif

Was just going to post this!

I gasped at the 14 years bit though! Still remember this taking off.

Even though it's pre-mega stardom Rihanna, I feel it's worked its way to become a real classic in her discography and fits nicely alongside some of her big smashes. SOS and Unfaithful were probably bigger hits at the time but Pon de Replay feels a lot bigger now, although SOS still feels quite big.

Pon De Replay has sold more in the UK now than SOS and every album released has 1 or more platinum single.

Platinum exactly 2 years after it went Gold ohmy.gif A third of its overall total occurring 12-14 years after it was a hit. The joys of streaming! It had sold 125,000 copies by the end of 2005 (which was pretty reasonable for the time).

Some of her 2x platinum hits feel smaller than some of her platinum ones tbh. Just goes to show the power of streams.

Even Needed Me being platinum and SOS, Russian Roulette and Run This Town just gold adds to that.
