RIHANNA RULES IN "SECONDS"

Superstar's Surprise Drop Explodes at iTunes, Everywhere Else

When Rihanna drops something new, shit blows up.

The Roc Nation superstar's new "FourFiveSeconds," featuring Kanye West and Paul McCartney, appeared late last week and zoomed to the upper reaches of the iTunes chart (it's #2 as of this writing, trailing only "Uptown Funk"). The track has already sold some 53k singles.

What else is blowing up in response to RiRi's return? The Twitter-waves. There were 600k+ retweets of the siren's announcement in 48 hours, which is, um, a lot.

 
Social-media action across Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other networks you've never heard of should continue to be gigantic. Rihanna's fellow stars are obviously taken with the song as much as the fans are, as the following Instagram post demonstrates:
