Where Is Music Headed???: Rihanna Has Nine #1s, Kanye West Is Possibly Peaking At 500K For 1st Week And Nicki Minaj Is On His Heels

- By Bossip Staff Categories: New Music, News

Rihanna, Kanye West, Nicki Minaj

The first word that comes to a lot of minds when they think of music today is… GARBAGE!!! But then, you have artist like Kanye West, Nicki Minaj and Rihanna who have all seem to pump some type of life back into the 808s.

According to Billboard, Rihanna has set the record for having the most Number Ones in this Millineum. She had a total of 4 #1’s drop this year with two going back to back, “Only Girl In The World” and “What’s My Name?” When the album “Rated R” was release, we all could have sworn after Rihanna’s punching bag fiasco, her career wasn’t looking to bright with a track like “Russian Roulette” but then she hit back with “Rude Boy” and everyone forgot about the song of death. Rihanna’s new album “LOUD” was released last week selling 200k units so, far.

Now on to Kanye West… Mr. West has been releasing ‘FREE’ music for the past two months and everyone has been eating it up. Even with him releasing dayyumm near 10 tracks, only about 3 free songs ended up being on the album, which left people wanting more. Kanye is predicted to sell about 500K in his first week but we think it will be a little bit more. Maybe not seeing how he just went off on Bush, Matt Lauer and Taylor Swift… AGAIN!!!

Then there is Nicki Minaj… her CD dropped on Monday and is flowing right behind Mr. West. Having Diddy in her corner might have been the best thing she could have done besides hooking up with Lil Wayne. Nicki also teamed up with Mac for an exclusive lipstick that will be dropping on Black Friday. Wonder if these extras day actually helped with album sales… for her sake we hope so but other than that, we haven’t heard too much about how her album is doing besides being #3 on iTunes.

Who’s Music Will You Be Bumping for the Holidays???

I LIKE ALL THREE ARTISTS BUT IT DEPENDS ON THE WORK.I DONT LIKE NICKIS ALBUM BECUSE ITS NOT MY FLAVOR AND ITS INCONSISTENT.I STILL LISTEN TO “ITY BITY PIGGY”>>DATS MA ISH .RIHANNAS AND KANYES ARE GREAT. YE JUST NEED TO WORK ON HIS DEMEANOR SO HE CAN SELL THESE RECORDS AND RIHANNA NEED TO WORK ON HER STAGE PRESENCE. SMH AT RIHANNA STAGE PRESENCE.

    • Seriously

      I’m with you. NONE OF THEM. Music continues to be garbage and I won’t support garbage. Just because something sells it doesn’t mean it’s good. People need to learn the difference. There is popularity and hype do not necessarily have anything to do with talent. People buy the hype and think it means something.

  • purple love

    Beyond happy 4 all of them

    500k is good for Kanye or do he usualy do better idk. For some reason i’m thinking his cd has been out for 1 day, hell the week is almost over. Rihanna doing 200k 2 weeks later lmao. It look like Nicky is about to monster her. If it wasn’t for those false-a-fied # 1 singles she would be on a boat back to her native. Anyway I heard that none of the cd above were all that. Kanye men fans are dck riding something terrible on twitter( and you can tell they just want to be down).

    • Sallyone

      U should listen to Kayne Album, its really good!!

    • nickie

      STFU u sound real dumb. Rihanna did well didnt yall say she was going to flop. what do u know about music. Not many people can average 200k. The qen Monica did like 165k when her so highly anticipated cd came out an how long has she been in the game. Yall just talk for the sake of talking.

  • meka d

    So happy for riri.

    I don’t like any of them!!!!!!!! They’re the main ones ruining music right now……..

    • Seriously

  • RIP Music Ofiically Died In 2009

    90s,80s,70ss ish MICHAEL JACKSON, AALIYAH

    • FutureFaceofTV

      So true!

  • xedos

    Rihanna is doing what pop artist suppose to do. make catchy feel good music.When she made deep music “rated R” ppl talk talk shyt. tell your favorite artist to make your type of music. pop music keep this industry going

    • Blue Kid

      That is the very reason why rihanna should not have gotten that R&B award, because she is a POP artist not and R&B.

      I don’t like rihanna type of style of singing, I like R&B, something she is not and did not deserve an award for.

  • Jay32

    I don’t get the point of this post but Kanye’s album is really great.It really makes you want to scream F_ck You to anybody that doesn’t like you for being yourself.I haven’t heard the other 2 and don’t plan on it.With all of those #1 hits you would think Rihanna’s album would be selling better than that,even though 200k is really good.

  • jj

    I honestly think they all have great aspects musically
    Rihanna may not be the best singer with the deepest songs but they aren’t horrible I think her songs are fun and pop both white and blacks can vipe to it but obviously her fan base isn’t as strong
    Nicki is also fun but I think her song on the album have substance as well
    Kanye is a genius he crazy sometimes but he make some good azz music
    I like nicki cd but I been bumping kanye since yesterday non stop

  • jj

    Oh yea and congrats to all of them they got their flaws just like everybody else but I’m glad none of them failed miserably Like people been wishing

  • Nay

    I love Nicki Minaj and Kanye. Rihanna…meh!

  • jeff

  • wanna minaj?

    I love all three artist! i can’t knock their hustle at all. they all make great music. yes i said great so if u don’t like it then that’s your problem not mine.

  • http://deleted Really

    Oh puh-lease nobody is hating on Rihanna.Good for her *clapping hands* but it isn’t actually the greatest music I could be listening to.Seriously her music is mostly about promiscuity.But kudos to her for being herself.Kanye,Kanye,Kanye.What can I say?A good rapper back when he worshipped Jesus and before he hopped on Jay Z’s jock.And Nicky…very icky,but still better than Rih.I’d rather listen to Roman’s Revenge than What’s my name…peace.
