Rihanna Set To Sell 200k In First Week

Posted By on November 25, 2009

    Rihanna's new "Rated R" album will reportedly debut next week with an estimated 200,000 copies according to one-day projections. Although the exact numbers won't be released for a week, Rihanna looks like she will sell less than British television star Susan Boyle. Other releases include Cash Money albums from Jay Sean and Birdman that look to be selling around 30-35 thousand copies this week. [Rihanna – Performs On David Letterman – Watch Here]    
    In related news, Rihanna recently talked how much her former boyfriend Chris Brown influenced the content for the album. "This album is an expression of all
those feelings that I went through in the last eight months, just
different emotions," she said of the aftermath of Brown's assault. Rihanna then continued "All of it isn't angry, all of
it isn't dark and sad, 'cause I didn't go through that the whole time.
That was part of it. It was really a roller coaster, and you get that
when you're listening to the album…I really vented on this album, and
as I said before, all of it isn't about that specific relationship or
what I went through, 'cause that's not who I am. That's not all of who
I am." [Rihanna – Talks 5 Things About Her Album – Watch Here]
