Rihanna ‘Anti’ Tops Charts; Singer Slams Beyonce?


Rihanna looks like she’s enjoying her success as “Anti” climbed the top spot on Billboard 200 album charts. Amidst the victory are the rumours that the singer reportedly slammed Beyonce.

“Anti” is Rihanna’s second No. 1 album and the first to spend more than a week at No. 1, reports Billboard. “Unapologetic” was equally successful as well by reaching the same spot in 2012.

Sourcing track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA), the full LP went to the top due to its smashing hit entitled “Work” which features the “Hotline Bling” rapper, Drake.

Summing up the sales, her material gathered at least 17,000 pure album sales for this week. On the other hand, 69 percent of her total profit came from the TEA and SEA, as the website notes.

Meanwhile, the “Work” hitmaker address the issue between her and Queen Bey via Vogue, saying that the gossips are nonsense. “Here’s the deal, they just get so excited to feast on something that’s negative. Something that’s competitive,” the singer said.

“Something that’s, you know, a rivalry. And that’s just not what I wake up to. Because I can only do me. And nobody else is going to be able to do that,” RiRi added.
