I have to say, Rihanna may shift a bucket load of singles, but her total for "Good Girl Gone Bad" is disappointing.

No wonder they're re-releasing her album with new tracks.

Particularly when you consider US digital sales of their songs:
  • Timbaland - Apologise (3.18m)
  • Timbaland - The Way I Are (at least 2m)
  • Rihanna - Umbrella (at least 2.6m)
  • Rihanna - Don't Stop The Music (1.36m)

I really find it hard to believe Rihanna's sales blink.gif Every single has been a hit from the album! 3 Top 10's and a Top 15, which is excellent sleep.gif then the album sales are just over a million mellow.gif Her last album shifted like 1.5 mil in the US, off 2 hits. Confuses me sleep.gif

The sales figure for Rihanna is correct ohmy.gif . I found this on Billboard:

QUOTE(Billboard.com)
Rihanna Re-Releases "Good Girl" With New Ne-Yo Track
March 14, 2008, 6:30 PM ET
Hillary Crosley, N.Y.


Rihanna will release a new version of her hit 2007 album, "Good Girl Gone Bad," on May 27 via Def Jam Records. The revamped set will feature new a single called "Take A Bow."

The track, about a deceiving partner, was written by Ne-Yo and produced by Stargate. It was made available to media outlets today (March 14) via the label's website. An accompanying video is slated to be recorded and released in coming weeks, although dates have not been announced as of press time.

"Good Girl Gone Bad" reached No. 2 on The Billboard 200 and No. 3 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts following its initial release on June 5, 2007. To date, the album has sold 1.1 million copies in the United States according to Nielsen Soundscan. Meanwhile, "Umbrella," the set's first single, topped both the Pop and Hot 100.

Looking at the chart run for "Good Girl Gone Bad" from flatdeejay's "US Charts Analysis (22/03/2008)" thread:

QUOTE
47. ( 45) 40w [ 2] GOOD GIRL GONE BAD RIHANNA

Date of entry: 23/06/2007
Chart run: 2-7-12-14-14-18-16-14-16-17-23-27-24-21-18-29-40-47-54-41-51-56-61-76-53-71-80-78-80-63-61-59-55-45-51-46-35-38-45-47

and comparing it to the chart runs of artists like "Keyshia Cole" and "Colbie Caillat" ...
Rihanna's album has spent more time in the lower echelons of the chart.
