Only in America where you can reach stardom by being a domestic violence victim instead of any other talent.

when is rhianna going to call another news conference to whine about how victimized she feels by having to give all these interviews about how victimized she feels? 1-2 weeks before her next CD release party?

Since when does Trey songz represent Georgia? Is the writer stupid or has he just moved there..I dont think so because he satys in Jersey and always in the club in D.C. Trey is from Virginia

I love the names of the black names or black groups. Always have to be different. What a bunch of thugs.

You’re right about Trey Songz. Had a mental blip in my brain there.

Keith, I am white and your comment about “black names” gives us white people a bad name. I think the hip hop names are creative and represent the music well. Do you feel better now that you judged and spit on someone with your comment? Would Jesus do that? Love your neighbor as yourself. Or do you love yourself?

So glad that I don’t listen to mainstream radio because that woman can’t sing on her worse day! 89.3 is the only station for me in Atlanta.

I hispanic but I look white..none of this matters in the grand scheme of things but I like it when people start off a convo of what they look like….lets be serious…creative and represent music well…ok…Wackaflacka flames….yeahh that reps dat muzac..Boosie badazzzz…dat junk be hot..I like hip hop but alot of the crap they have out now is straight garbage..wake up. Give me some Roots and Outkast with a sprinkle of pac…dont give me biggie…he had a handful of songs and people make him like he is the best rapper ever..but thats another tangent…

Well while the song stinks to you Rihanna is cashing all those stinking checks…..I swear there are a bunch of angry haters in the ATL

Looking at the songs on these charts make me roll with laughter. These people are horrible folks! I could care less if any of these monkeys are “poppin”. Rihanna has become a cartoon character, she has nothing positive to say or sing about, but leemings continue to buy this garbage. These are plastic people, most of who won’t be around in 5 months let alone 5 years. These people are caroon coons.

Haven’t heard of her song but I do like KeSha’s. Soul music is what’s in, not crap about screwin and wet-wet and making money and smoking.

Why is an article about popular music receiving comments about the race of the artists?? Does it really matter? Seriously… And to you “Keith”.. You’re a true first class jerk

Rihanna fans are so silly.Many will always bring up “how much money SHE makes as if that is relevant to what people feel about her “talent”.I don’t care how much money she cashes at the bank,she still can’t sing.I am always amazed at broke people counting someone else’s money.Carry on.

I actually believe that Chris Brown was trying to beat some talent into the talentless wonder known as Rihanna, because she seriously needs some.

I like Rihanna and all, but I am so tired of hearing Rude Boy. I feel like I heard all 365 of those plays. Every time I get in the car, I hear Rude Boy, Bad Romance, and Telephone almost without fail, no matter how long my car ride is. Calm down Atlanta radio! If we wanted to hear a single song that often, we’d listen to it on our iPods. Give us some variety.

Thank God I dont have to listen to that bitch on 96 Rock. I guess in a chocolate city like Atlanta, all you have to be is a member of the clan to be on top in this city.

some of yall sure seem bothered by a simple post about the top spins in radio… keith taking shot at acts with creative names, darb above me is talking in some weird tangent that only he understands…

what is going on here?

btw- B.o.B. is from RIGHT HERE in our back yard- Decatur. I’ve watched him develop his skills from his first song ‘cloud 9′– to now being not just a rapper, but also singing on the tracks and even playing the guitar. Watch out for this young man. His debut album just dropped yesterday, and he’s even been doing BIG numbers on iTunes for the last few weeks (w/ “nothing on you” and “airplanes”).

My good friend produced his first single “haterz everywhere”- and we’ve been pulling for this guy for a while! Get ‘em Bobby Ray!

Rihanna needs to go back to dating white men. The brothas don’t know how to treat her right.
