I love The Saturdays, I love All Saints and I love Anti. So stop stereotyping people based on their musical tastes.

I like Needed Me and Kiss It Better but I don't get how Work is still doing as well as it is.

Work's ongoing success in the US at this point is heavily down to streaming! I don't think it'd have managed such a lengthy run at the top otherwise.

Streaming is keeping Work afloat in the UK too. It's at #10 this week officially. 82% of its weekly total is derived from streaming. It's at #6 in the streaming chart, and #28 in the sales chart, and the split this week is roughly 28,000 units from streaming data, and only 6,000 sales.

Its running total is 667,565. Just 260,000 of this total comes from download sales, while a very significant 407,000 is streaming data units.

Sales really have collapsed in the last year. :(

Rihanna is the general publics go to artist, she will always profit from the latest and easy way to consume music that the general public on mass use. When that was downloads she was selling a million copies of certain singles and going platinum all the time. Now it is streaming and she is the #1 artist on Spotify.

There was an article the other day and it said of the 100ish million users on Spotify, a 1/3rd listen to Rihanna regularly.

Album sales are pretty much dead and downloads are on their way out, by this time next year streaming will be 90% of the market.

Couple of updated UK Rihanna figures:

892,300 - What's My Name?
672,000 - Take Care

Back in January 2016, OCC stated 847,800 for WMN (which was only its download sales), whereas the above figure for it also includes streaming data.

This is a great move on her behalf. Those that miss pop/dance Rihanna will get something to enjoy and no doubt it will be a big song as he wouldn't have her on anything but his most likely big hit. She doesn't have to have these songs on her own albums now, like Right Now was on Unapologetic sticking out like a sore thumb, she can keep her Rihanna albums to her sound and get those #1's and pop hits through features making everyone happy.

Clip can be heard here, but obviously the full song can be streamed on Spotify etc / downloaded.




Big tune! Already #1 on UK iTunes and a few other countries and it's only been on sale for a few hours.

I thought it was pretty average, but then the "youuuu" hook came in and it instantly became a Summer anthem.

It's no 'We Found Love', though. That one was a trend-setter song, this new one is just the average dance track with a catchy hook that won't last longer than October 2016.
