iHeartRadio Awards 2015: Rihanna Will Perform Buzz Single ‘BBHMM’
Rihanna will perform her buzz single, “B**ch Better Have My Money,” at the 2015 iHeartRadio Awards. The single was released for urban radio, but will be followed by her next single “American Oxygen,” which is set to release on Top 40 radio. NBC Washington reported that a few days after dropping her buzz single, it’s been confirmed by Rihanna and iHeartRadio that she will perform it at the iHeartRadio Music Awards on Sunday night on NBC.
Rihanna tweeted about her excitement: “First ever #BBHMM performance on the #iHeartAwards tonight!!!! Tune in at 8/7c on NBC.”
The singer has been quiet about the release of her highly anticipated album, which has been dubbed as R8 by her fans. Her fans have even used R8 in hashtags on Twitter and Instagram. Rihanna previously revealed that she plans to collaborate with Sam Smith on her upcoming album. Her album will also be co-produced by Kanye West.
Rihanna’s buzz single, “BBHMM,” has been doing well on the iTunes charts. It currently stands at No. 2 on the charts, according to Fashion & Style Magazine. The reason the song hasn’t been exploding on the charts is because it’s popular on urban, and both pop and rhythmic radio. It’s still a great follow up to her lead single, “FourFiveSeconds,” with Kanye West and Paul McCartney.
SingersRoom calls “BBHMM” a sassy new single from the singer. In the song, Rihanna raps about her success. She tells people that she dominates the charts, and that other pop artists can’t shut her down. Rihanna reveals a whole new side of herself that’s never been revealed to fans. Though she’s always evoked a sassy and edgy feel, she’s never known to have an ego.
Rihanna has every right to have an ego now, as she will earn a lot of money from her new animated film, Home. It’s expected to earn $58 million at the box office this weekend. It opened on Friday with results of $15.6 million, according to the SingersRoom article. It should also continue to do well. If Rihanna’s new movie rises beyond expectations, it should become the biggest opening for DreamWorks.
Rihanna isn’t the only one that will perform at the iHeartRadio Awards. There will also be performances by Iggy Azalea, Sam Smith, Madonna, Kelly Clarkson, Snoop Dogg, Jennifer Hudson, Meghan Trainor, Jason Derulo, Nate Ruess, Alesso, and Florida Georgia Line.
