Yeah "oh whining about fame and how messed up I am again" *insert catchy hook* = hit.

Suppose it's no more redundant than rappers rapping about their hoes or their money or their designer stuff but still, boring.

Love The Way You Lie is not a song whining about fame or how messed up he is tho. Anyways I think The Monster is way better than LTWYL which I never liked (but I was fond of Rih's solo version for a period of time, mainly cause the way she just fell off the ledge or whatever during her AMA's performance of it lol)

What the hell? smiley: laugh
  

You don't remember when she did LTWYL Part II, What's My Name and Only Girl in a medley at the AMA's that year? It was the first time I gave her any props for a live performance, I thought she did great even with the vocal issues. But she opens the medley with LTWYL Part II and at the end of the song she drops off some kind of ledge or platform and I was all like ooooooh lol.

I remember the performance, I'm just laughing because you said you were a fan of the song because she fell off the ledge. smiley: laugh

'The Monster' remains perched at #4 on iTunes despite the video premiere.

As with her last few #1 hits, it's all about radio overplaying these songs.

It's really not that dramatic.

iTunes:
1. Say Something
2. Timber
3. Counting Stars
4. The Monster

Airplay:
1. EMINEM – The Monster f/Rihanna: 188.449 (+ 1.589)
2. ONEREPUBLIC – Counting Stars: 167.921 (+ 1.984)
6. PITBULL – Timber f/Ke$ha: 124.882 (+ 2.704)
A GREAT BIG WORLD – Say Something w/C. Aguilera: 57.813 (+ 1.682)

Counting Stars isn't that far off from The Monster in airplay, Timber is a fast growing smash, and well that Say Something song I have no explanation for that songs success. I don't get it.

IMO The Monster music video isn't very good, it's a Slim Shady greatest hits affair with an underused Dr. Rihanna.

Airplay doesn't just drive single sales, The Monster is the song selling The Marshall Mathers LP 2 now which is holding up very well, how's Pitbull's The Meltdown EP (Timber's parent album) selling? I'll give you one guess.

Me too.

I like The Monster a lot more than Love The Way You Lie. That one is kind of overrated.

Eminem's album was going to sell regardless. It didn't open big because of this song, which mind you went for adds the week the album hit stores.

I didn't mention it's opening week, MMLP2 was released over 6 weeks ago and is still holding up well. A #1 airplay hit contributes to that. smiley: wink

Sure, but you would think that the video premiere had driven the single's sales a bit. Nada. And as I said, Eminem has a history as a big album seller so yours is not exactly a strong point. 

The reality is that radio can keep shoving Rihaha and her pre-cooked and pre-digested singles down the public's throat, but the public is not using.

So you still hate Rihanna, we get it. I have a response but I'm not going to bother tonight. I'm stuck at home on my Saturday night because I'm totally broke from buying Christmas gifts.

My plan is to make some drinks and get my life (twice in the past 2 days!) to the BEYONCÉ DVD. If you want to discuss her slayage I'd much rather do that than a Rihanna stanwar. Let me know.
