Rihanna Set to Have Moderate First Week Sales

Pop/R&B star Rihanna’s fifth studio project, ‘Loud,’ is set to debut on the Billboard 200 albums chart with around 180-190k in sales in its first week, reports Hits Double Daily. “Never have I ever stressed out on the first week,” Rihanna recently tells New York radio host Angie Martinez. “Ever since ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’, the first week was like 160[,000], and it grew to sell nine million albums. The first week never determines what the success of the album will be.” Rihanna is currently on the road promoting, Loud, which is led by the singles “Only Girl (In The World)” and the Billboard Hot 100 topper “What’s My Name?” featuring Young Money MC Drake. “I love making music and I feel like as a musician, there’s no reason to stop unless you really want to,” RiRi told ABC’s “Good Morning America” host Robin Roberts on Wednesday (Nov. 17) in regards to her new project. “There’s no rule that says you have to take a break between albums. We’re here to make music and the fans want music. … It really happened quickly. We did a lot of work in very little time, so it’s exciting.” Rihanna’s ‘Loud’ in stores and online now.
