Last September 15, Rihanna tweeted a response from of her followers asking “When’s the next album due?” with a reply “THIS FALL!!!!!” I know this is good news to her fans.
Some sources confirm that a new album is coming soon, this will be Rihanna’s sixth studio album since her “Music of the Sun” arrival in 2005 and will come nearly a year after her last set, “Loud” that was released in November of 2010.
“Loud” debuted and peaked at the 3rd position on the Billboard 200 chart and has sold 1.5 million copies in the U.S. according to Nielsen SoundScan. It has spawned in six Billboard Hot 100 hit singles and of those. Three of them are “Only Girl (In the World),” “What’s My Name?” (featuring Drake) and “S&M” (featuring Britney Spears).
“Loud” is her second-biggest selling album next to only 2007′s “Good Girl Gone Bad” (2.7 million).
“Loud’s” most recent hit, “Cheers (Drink to that),” became the album’s fourth top 10 this week, as it climbed 11-10 in its seventh week on the tally.
Over all Rihanna’s albums including two remix efforts have sold 7.3 million in the U.S while she’s had five top 10 albums and a stunning 10 Hot 100 No. 1 singles (a total few acts in history can boast), a No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart still eludes her. The closest she came was with “Good Girl Gone Bad,” which debuted and peaked at No. 2.
Let’s wait what single from Rihanna new album will get the #1 position on Billboard.
