After what turned out be an ‘adventurous’ seven days, ROC rebel Rihanna’s ’777′ Tour finally came to an end last night in NYC.
Taking her lack luster show to Webster Hall, the Pop Princess enjoyed the company of long time mentors Jay Z, Tyty and mastermind Jay Brown with whom she travelled with on the week long tour.

This coming chart week, after seven long years, Rihanna will land her first US #1 album with around 240-260k units.
Unimpressive, considering her ever mind blowing reign on a singles front, and considering it remains under the 300k region. A region, easily secured by personal bests scored by the likes Nicki Minaj (Pink Friday – 375,000 units), Lady GaGa (Born This Way- 662,000 units) and Beyonce (B’day – 541,000 units).
To put this into perspective, if ones was to take the highest first week sales figures scored by Riri’s closest rivals were tallied, it’s safe to say she would miss on a Top 5 position. Find out what we mean below:
1. Taylor Swift- ‘Red:‘ 1,208,000 units.
2. Lady GaGa – ‘Born This Way’ – 662,000 units.
3. Beyonce – ‘B’Day‘ – 541,000 units.
4. Nicki Minaj – ‘Pink Friday’ – 375,000 units.
5. Ciara – ‘The Evolution’- 338,000 units.
