    Ha! Queen Bey is not on the top 5 list? The way she is hyped, you’ll think she’ll be no. 1

      It’s a singles market, chart dinosaurs pretending albums still matter is beyond ridiculous. And Rihanna’s ruled the singles chart for over 11 years and will continue to do so, but not Beyonce lol.

      Like you said, HYPED. Bey’s songs and lyrics are not all that.
      Rihanna has meaningful and catchy songs. The only thing Bey has is she’s a performer and has great visual creativity

      I agree. Beyonce last album “Lemonade” did nothing for me. I do understand where she’s coming from, but I don’t want my music too deep, whereas I’m trying to figure out what’s going on.

    Can you guys leave Bey alone, I don’t see her mentioned in the article. Congrats Rihanna! She is an amazing artist and ANTi is my favourite album ever.

    Rihanna is not in Elvis Presley’s league and NEVER will be. Streaming has made Rihanna, Drake and a lot of other new artists but in Elvis’ day one had to buy records. Artists did not have the luxury of the social media channels either. Elvis is still listed as the Biggest Selling Solo Artist of all time by the Guinness Book Of World Records.
