If you’ve ever had to ask ‘who runs the world’, you may have just gotten your answer.
For, despite minimal Stateside promotion for her fourth solo LP ’4′, singer Beyonce has seen it continually nab top spots on multiple Billboard charts.
One of the record’s later singles, ‘Dance For You’, has seemingly strutted atop charts months after its initial release. The achievement lands Bey’s name new reason (joining the many existing) to line the history books:
“…”4″ nabs its fourth top 10 hit single on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart this week as “Dance For You” sashays 13-10. It’s the sixth cut from “4″ to reach the tally, following “Run the World (Girls)” (No. 30), “Best Thing I Never Had” (No. 4), “Party” (No. 2), “Countdown” (No. 12) and “Love On Top” (No. 1).
‘Dance’ also gives Beyoncé her 19th top 10 as a soloist, extending her lead for the most top 10s among female artists since 2000. Alicia Keys is a distant second with 14 top 10s in that time span.”
Fans may also recall that the ’4′ album marks Bey’s third time notching 4 top ten R&B singles from one album (with ‘Dance For You’ giving this album 5 places).
But, with Queen of Hip Hop Soul Mary J. Blige‘s reign over R&B charts tallying in at 23 top ten hits, Bey does have a few hits to go before history books can crown her the chart’s sole monarch. At the rate she is clocking hits, however, that time may not be long.
