As the likes of Lady GaGa and Katy Perry would have already learned, the inclusion of streaming views to Hot 100 chart placements truly is an industry God send.
Giving established acts like themselves no choice but to win with every release, the ladies will no doubt see their pal Beyonce fare just as well when she kicks off the campaign for her new album.
In fact, if a new feat landed by the star is anything to go by, she can expect her brand new single to soar straight to the Top Ten upon release.
Full story below…
Since its October 26th 2011 release, the video for the performer’s Platinum single ‘Love on Top’ has pulled in 100 million plays, earning it a coveted VEVO certification!

Hitting the milestone after it sold over 1 million units in the US alone, its certification also comes after the single was certified double Platinum in Austria, while earning a peak position of #6 in the United Kingdom.
More importantly, in adding to the mind blowing numbers Beyonce continues to command, the 100 million streams milestone goes a long way to reveal what should happen when the video for her brand new single drops.
For, with anticipation for the new release still at fever pitch, releasing the video on the same day as its iTunes launch will no doubt see it soar straight to the heights of the ‘Hot 100’ in its release week- aiding its supporting album to no end….especially if its preorder link is unveiled on the very same day.
Think about it.
If ‘4’ welcomed sales around the 300,000 unit mark without a hit single to its name, Bey is no doubt on course to either match or better ‘B’Day’s first week digits if she plays her cards right and uses all the ‘new rules’ to push the single and the album that will follow it.
Truth be told- and as crazy as it may sound- we’d say Beyonce is on course to kick off her strongest era to date, no doubt motivated by the success story that is ‘The 20/20 Experience‘ and fuelled by the excitement generated by her ever buzzing ‘Hive’.
