Rihanna continued to embark on the Diamonds World Tour in Johannesburg, South Africa. Performing at the FNB Stadium was not the only location the, Unapologetic songstress made her way to. Why not visit the Johannesburg Zoo – you’re in Johannesburg! Hit the jump and check it out as RiRi sticks her tongue out at a giraffe, holds a lion cub, and poses next to a swift cheetah.
A big congratulations to Rihanna for her latest album, Unapologetic, going platinum! This accomplishment makes six out of her seven albums to reach platinum status! The only one of Rih’s albums that didn’t make the platinum mark was her very first one, Music of the Sun, which went Gold. The album has had four successful singles in it’s 27-week run on the charts, but I’m sure her next single will be a smash as well! Congratulations, Rihanna!
So far, “Diamonds” and “Stay” off of Unapologetic, have been a major success for Rihanna, while “Pour It Up” is slowly working its way up the charts as well (and FINALLY getting a video…). Now Rih has announced what will be the fourth single off of the project, revealing the artwork for the David Guetta-produced “Right Now.” What other tracks off the album would you like Rihanna to make a single?
Today is a day of lost verses. First, 2 Chainz’ lost verse for Rihanna’s “Pour It Up (Remix)” turns up. Now, Wiz’ lost verse for Future’s “Karate Chop (Remix)” is discovered; it’s ironic how this lost verse is found and an original verse on the remix was purposely lost to never be heard again since it was overly offensive. In any case, Metro Boomin is to thank for supplying listeners with Khalifa’s lost verse, and it can be listened to below.
The Codeine Cowboy was rumored to be on the official remix to Riri’s “Pour It Up” along with Jeezy, Rozay, Juicy J and Tip but was not. Still, his verse for the record was not a rumor, and you could listen to how the remix would have sounded after the jump.
All Riri usually sees are signs. All she sees is dollar signs. But tonight, Riri is seeing a lot of awards. Besides winning Billboard’s Top Radio Songs Artist award, the Barbados-born songstress took home each of Billboard’s R&B awards: Top R&B Artist, Top R&B Album and Top R&B Song. Some of the R&B nominees she defeated are: Alicia Keys, Frank Ocean, Usher and Ne-Yo. Oh yeah. Another nominee she defeated was Chris Brown. Pour it up! Pour it up! See the video to “Diamonds” aka Top R&B Song after the jump.
After performing this song live at the Grammys last night, Rihanna premiered the video on E! tonight. The Bajan beauty keeps it simple in this one, singing from the bathtub about her lover. Watch the Unapologetic video cut below.
“I want you to stayyyyy”… We all had a feeling that Rihanna’s song “Stay” from Unapologetic was about Chris Brown, and now we know for a fact. Rihanna released the single cover art for the track, and it’s a photo of her and Chris Brown. Click below to check it out. Melissa
