Rihanna Billboard Magazine–Will Unapologetic Be Her 1st No. 1?

Billboard 540x525 Rihanna Billboard Magazine  Will Unapologetic Be Her 1st No. 1?

Rihanna lands the cover of Billboard magazine’s November 24th issue,which includes a feature breaking down the singer’s many accomplishments. According to the article, “every November for the past four years, Rihanna has released a million selling album.” What’s suprising is that none of those have reached No. 1 on Billboard’s charts so the question is whether or not Unapologetic will be her first.

Since the article was written, Rihanna’s song “Diamonds” hit No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart, tying the 24-year old with Madonna and the Supremes who also have 12 chart toppers. The three artists who have had more No. 1s are Michael Jackson, with 13, Mariah Carey, 18, and the Beatles, 20. On a side note, who would ever guess Carey has more hits than Jackson?

BeyonceBillboard 405x540 Beyonce On Cover Of Billboard

In advance of her upcoming album, “4,” Beyonce has begun gearing up her publicity machine starting with a cover on Billboard magazine.

Beyonce is an amazing human whose success we love to see, ’nuff said, but in many ways she reminds me of a well-regarded CEO of a major corporation. When it comes to running the company and producing, clearly she brings an elite talent to the table that puts others to shame, but still, what the world witnesses is always on message and there is little to nothing left to chance. Beyonce’s themes (and Rihanna’s and Lady Gaga’s) may be more provocative than those of your average corporation because they’re ”artists,” but still there’s a plan in place. In her case, the message is female empowerment and sisters having it all, which hey, you can’t knock that hustle and why would you even want to.

In advance of her “Pink Friday” album release next week, Nicki Minaj lands the cover of Billboard magazine. She’s been interviewed a ton recently so a lot in the article is just not new, but we do get  fresh details on Minaj being kicked out of Lil Wayne’s crew after she dropped out of the second half of his “I Am Music” tour in 2009. She says, ”I started to record by myself and I lost track of what I was doing and who I wanted to be. It wasn’t until I linked back up with Wayne that he gave me this speech. He said, ‘What happened? You were hot,’ and it just hurt me so much. I wanted to prove to him that I was still hot. It hurt my ego so bad that I went back with a vengeance.” Another image from the article and a Billboard video interview on the next page, in which she talks about early morning being her most productive time.
