Apple: “We Want More ‘Beyonce’ Releases”

Published: Monday 3rd Mar 2014 by David

As her fans continue to bask in the glory of its sales, Beyonce‘s self-titled new album now finds itself at the centre of heated ‘industry debate’ this year, now Apple have called on record labels to learn from the icon’s strategy.

Details on their ‘Beyonce‘-fuelled demand below…

Released exclusively to iTunes as a surprise release on December 13th 2013, Knowles joined its owner Apple in watching the project sell 1 million units worldwide in its first week of release.

In response, the company’s music chief Robert Kondrk spent this year’s ‘Grammy week’ urging label executives to follow suit, arguing that streaming outlets such as YouTube and Spotify are to blame for the decline in download sales, with users able to stream entire releases without purchasing them.

Billboard Biz reports:

“In the meetings during Grammy Week, Apple’s iTunes contingent, led by Kondrk, even suggested the albums don’t even have to be exclusive to iTunes, and that labels could give albums to other stores as well – but not streaming services. Republic Records’ artist Kid Cudi this week released his album ‘Satellite Flight’ exclusively to digital retailers —  led by iTunes.

Ironically, Kondrk also asked that individual track sales be locked down for a window of time before allowing tracks to be purchased separately making the album available to streaming services, said executives from two major labels.  This runs contrary to the album unbundling strategy first negotiated by Apple founder Steve Jobs with his original iTunes store label deal in 2003.”

So, let us know…

Should other artists follow suit?

    Reading this now makes me think iTunes are the ones who asked for the exclusivity of the album and Beyonce is only pretending that it was her idea.

  2. Bow Down B****** March 3, 2014

    So bascially they’re saying follow Queen Bey’s lead…I’m not surprised, she is the best

  3. FentySoSnatched March 3, 2014

    Because that makes so much sense (!) Why would anybody in the right mind give their album to one store and lose out on sales from other stores.

  4. WeAreLambily March 3, 2014

    Ooops, so giving it itunes wasn’t her idea? It all makes so much sense now, they’ve been wanting to do this for a long time and she was the first one to say yes and has been parading it as if she thought of it first.

  5. BEYHIVE_MINAJ March 3, 2014

    THE QUEEN’S IMPACT!!!!! Lmao but seriously,what Beyonce pulled off might have been a one in a million feat. Very few artists can do what she did and not bomb HARD. Remember she also set the celebrity twitterverse ablaze. Even legends were stanning for her. So to whoever who wants to do the same,I wish you best of luck. I just hope y’all know what you’re doing because this stunt can blow up another artist’s ego into thinking he/she can do the same,only for it to crash and burn.

  6. La Perra March 3, 2014

    This bish bought her album… How is this going to work for others?!?!

  7. PusherLovePaula March 3, 2014

    I don’t think she bought her own albums but this article was so interesting because it gave so much away.

    Number 1. If the head of itunes music is so passionate about getting everyone to do this I don’t believe it was Beyonce’s idea. I think he managed to convince Sony to convince her to do it first so she would look like a trendsetter.

    2. It only worked for Beyonce because she spent a year promoting it with the tour, snippets, commercials etc so it wouldn’t work for everyone.

  8. Unbiased March 3, 2014

    Shut up, it was Beyonce’s and her teams idea to release it exclusively to Itunes! They see how well it worked for her and thinj it will work well for everyone, but NO IT WILL NOT! Bey has a solid fanbase she was able to pull it off. If artists who don’t have strong fanbase, they will flop hard! People always trying to discredit this woman, don’t get mad a black.woman is making POWER moves, got labels and executives trying to follow her lead. Go ahead Bey!

  9. Bey Fan March 3, 2014

    *sigh*…what article are yall reading??

  10. Jay Scorpio Navy General March 3, 2014

    Ugh…. they clearly like selling trash …. NEXT!

  11. BEYHIVE_MINAJ March 3, 2014

    @PusherLoverPaula excuse me? How did she promote with snippets when only Grown Woman and Bow Down(not even the full version) made it to the album? Bow Down/I Been On was just a buzz track to get people talking-AND IT WORKED. Grown Woman was originally a Pepsi promo but only made it to the album cause of high demand. SOTS was just for H&M and Rise Up was for a movie soundtrack. And how was she promoting using commercials? Those were only for endorsement. And lastly,I’m sick of people saying TMCS was promo,when fans were begging her to chill and release some new music. If she was promoting using the tour,she would have been releasing singles and performing them on stage. She created the hype in her own smart way instead of the traditional way most people do.

  12. BEYHIVE_MINAJ March 3, 2014

    Lmao @ people still saying she bought her own album. According to y’all,she was supposed to FAIL. Stay clinging to that stale overused excuse because you can’t handle the fact that you lost.

  13. Vee March 3, 2014

    The Queens IMPACT tho. #GameChanger. And how in any way does this article prove it wasn’t her idea? It proves they BENIFITTED from her idea you damn fools. Anything to discredit the Queen

  14. fraudyonce March 3, 2014

    Umm…. everyone knows that her husband bought all those alums, she known for inflating things and buying grammys, stealing writing credits etc.

  15. BEYHIVE_MINAJ March 3, 2014

    @Fraudyonce provide real receipts or leave.

  16. Micks March 3, 2014

    Lool they will always find a reason to discredit her. Yall don’t know how stupid you sound. Just except Beyonce slayed or shut up.

  17. The Truth March 3, 2014

    they only did the iTunes exclusive so they could not prove that she and her husband bought all of those albums….

  18. Yeah I Said It March 3, 2014

    And this is why she is HBIC.

  19. Yeah I Said It March 3, 2014

    She came for blood honey. You weren’t ready. One of the best yet most risky decisions of her career. And it worked.

  20. DIGGER BEY March 3, 2014

    Here goes the pressed haters lol. @ Pusha & Other Hating H***……….Dumb b*tches if it was her idea or not, she still achieved it first. The first act to do it successfully. Majority of musicians would of been scared to do something like this. THE QUEEN still IMPACTED IT! #JUST BOW THE FAWK DOWN

  21. Lovebird March 3, 2014

    YOU HAVE TO BUILD HYPE to release an album the way Beyonce did.

    We all saw Beyonce’s album coming, we just didn’t know when. She started teasing this album since the SB was performance was announced with headlines to blogs under her paycheck about how so and so artist/producer has heard the songs, she was seen here shooting a music video, the album has been scrapped, so and so working on some songs, it’ll be released here, be released there blah blah blah.

    The way the hype was built on this album was genius, but like all gimmicks, people only fall for it once. A gimmick is like lightning, it never strikes the same spot once just like using the same gimmick will not have the same effect.

    Beyonce’s team thought this through fantastically even though Beyonce is demanding she takes all the credit. The poor lass cannot even spell her own name, she cannot expect us to believe she thought about this.

  22. TheTruth March 3, 2014

    First you guys say that she was sacred of releasing music and when she did release music and kill every b**** in the game (without promo) she’s apparently cheating. These haters are clearly upset. Yonce all on your mouth like lika

  23. DIGGER BEY March 3, 2014

    Lmaooooo The Struggle is so Real. Since the Lesser Pack Stans said THE QUEEN was gonna flop and she didn’t. Now its she bought the albums lmfaoooooooooo. #THE LESSER PACK STANS

  24. Lovebird March 3, 2014

    Now iTunes is demanding this because they want to have a monopoly on the market. Right now they have a monopoly on single sales but lag behind on album sales which is why they want more Beyonce type releases.

    Frankly I don’t see other retailers like Target or Amazon going for this seeing that they still want to maintain their strong hold on physical copy sales. I’m sure Amazon or Target would rather go for an Eminem, Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake type of release as opposed to having iTunes monopolize the market.

    Apple know what they are doing by demanding this; but with streaming services accounting for a bigger share on the revenue side of the income statement, I don’t know if Music distributors will budge. This will be an interesting one.

  25. Mad-on-her March 3, 2014

    I think all the comments here are focusing on the wrong aspect of the article. They’re not saying artists should follow Beyonce by dropping an album with no promo, but rather they should release music that is not immediately available to stream. I personally think that’s the reason the album sold so well. If it had been available to stream a lot of people would have done so and may ultimately have decided not to buy it. She didn’t give them that option.

  26. the real xoxo March 3, 2014

    the whole idea of releasing vague album details 18 months before it drops is late.
    Now when someone says ‘oh my album release date is…’ and it’s after 3 or so months i just roll my eyes. We live in a ‘right here, right now’ world of social media.

  27. Mya March 3, 2014

    Gosh, some of you are so dumb. What article are you reading to where is says it was apples idea? Lmaooo! Like I know hating Beyoncé makes people stupid but, you all can’t be that dumb lmao! Obv BEYONCÉ was a huge success. It broke countless iTunes records around the world. It’s the fastest-selling album in iTunes Store history globally. 1 million copies in 5 days on iTunes is unheard of, 88k in 3 hours, No. 1 in 111 countries which has NEVER been done, the album crashed iTunes. Beyoncé has changed the music game. The album was an event. It was a huge success for iTunes, reason why they want more people to follow Beyoncé’s lead lol. Beyoncé is a genuis, there are so many factors why it worked for Beyoncé and why it won’t work for others. She has the Star Power. No one else could pull this off but Beyoncé and anyone who try’s they will be compared to her, and they’re already doing so. As it is called “Pullin A Beyoncé” google it if you like. Beyoncé is the most impactful artist in this generation. Years from now people will ask “Where were you when Beyoncé’s album dropped?” It was an event, it wa the talk of the world and you wanted to be apart of it fan or not.

  28. Lovebird March 3, 2014

    @Mad-on-her

    Of course Apple would want that seeing that Download sales are also in decline (a recent phenomenon)

    From Billboard:

    Spotify drove a large part of the 75% jump Universal Music Group achieved in 2013 in subscription and streaming revenue, according to a source familiar with the music group’s financial statements.

    During the conference call, Vivendi reported that the company’s digital streaming and subscription revenue grew to 450 million euros ($618 million) in 2013, up 75% from the 257 million euros ($353 million) that channel had generated in the previous year.

    The digital music streaming company, which now has more than 2 million U.S. paying subscribers according to sources, has been under pressure from high profile figures like Radiohead’s Thom Yorke for underpaying artists for music. Yet it is also seen as having a crucial role in helping music labels offset an eventual slowdown in download sales, currently dominated by Apple’s iTunes store.

    Universal Music, which announced its annual financials on Tuesday, said digital sales overtook CD sales for the first time in 2013. While it is well known that CD sales have been in decline for several years, the decline of download sales is a much more recent phenomenon in the last couple of quarters. Major music companies like UMG, Sony Music and Warner Group — who have all taken minority equity stakes in Spotify and other streaming services — are betting that subscription services will start to grow quickly to help offset an expected drop-off in download sales.

  29. mk March 3, 2014

    I totally agree long as they make digital retailers available worldwide and allow us to buy with our debit cards as opposed to credit cards or buying iTunes gift cards. I pray dat universal republic n Kelly’s manager adopt jay z, kanye n bee’s strategies and increase her budget which will in turn see her do more promos n send her singles to radios n back them up. Payola if they have to

  30. DIGGER BEY March 3, 2014

    AngryBird u are one pitful b*tch. Your ass was saying no one was checking for THE QUEEN. You also said she would Bionic Flop. Whether gimmicks are involved are not, when the public is over u. It doesn’t matter what u do. See Lady Caca. Just moved the fawk on and except that THE QUEEN ISN’T GOING ANYWHERE! #2014…..THE YEAR OF THE IMMORTAL BEYONCE

  31. Bey Fan March 3, 2014

    Of course we knew an album was coming sooner or later… that wasn’t hype…. we knew she didn’t retire. But she didn’t give any hint of a release date.

    I dont understand how it was a gimmick to release an album in the middle of the night without promoting the album. It wasn’t a gimmick, it was a risk. We ALL know rihanna has an album coming… but if she released it tomorrow it would be a surprise, not a gimmick. We all know Mariah is working on an album, but if she was to release it tomorrow it would be a surprise, not a gimmick.

    The good thing about this is that the music didn’t leak. And thats probably because it was only sent to itunes.

  32. CiciFinnaBeABride March 3, 2014

  40. NICKI IS QUEEN OTHER B****** TAKE A SEAT March 3, 2014

    Apple is right! It should only be on iTunes and should not be available on spotify etc till much much much later! * side eyes nicki*

  41. Mark111 March 3, 2014

    I don’t think this will work again, not even for Beyonce. One, you have to be an artist at a certain level and Beyonce was just that. Labels arn’t gonna take this chance with their money, Beyonce is an artist in full control of her music (with success and it was her last album on Sony.) But if any store can do it, it’s iTunes. ITunes barley takes a cut of of sales, so more money for the label.

  42. BEYHIVE_MINAJ March 3, 2014

    @Bey_Fan honey,you know damn well that of it was one of their fave’s who did this,everyone would be saying that it was a risk and a game changer and blah blah blah. But beyonce does it and it’s now a gimmick. She was supposed to flop,or have they forgotten what they have been saying all last year?

  43. iconic cici March 3, 2014

    Lmao at @DiggerBey being @Mya desperate bittch.

  44. slay_hive March 3, 2014

    #BEYINSPIRED

    The Queen makes trends, she doesn’t follow them. 😀

    Even though this was a great idea, on Beyonce/her team’s part, this won’t work out so well for others. Some of these stars struggle to sell 200k with promo and hit singles.

    Just imagine if “some” of these artists released exclusively to itunes and god forbid they release a surprise album. FLOP! kii

  45. BEYHIVE_MINAJ March 3, 2014

    @Mark111 I agree,even for Beyonce,this was a once in a lifetime feat.

    Don’t agree with that pressed b****. Beyonce could release another album next week with all new songs and accomplish this again.

  49. My Gums Tho(aka Teacher) March 3, 2014

    Well it’s more money for them so y wouldn’t they! Just like retail stores hated the way she released her trash!

    Blu Ivy still ugly!

  52. iconic cici March 3, 2014

    Yes @Slay_Hive defend your other troll account kiiiiiii

  53. Skyfall March 3, 2014

    Agree with LoveBird. We all knew the album was coming but just didn’t know when. Her team did the ultimate most when it came to building hype, so when it just magically appeared on iTunes everyone went Crazy. As far as other artist releasing their albums exclusively to iTunes they will indeed flop like a fish out of water, unless they have a huge dependable fanbase like (Taylor Swift, or Eminem) or any other artist who’s sells are consistent.

  54. BEYHIVE_MINAJ March 3, 2014

    @Slay Hive
    I agree,cause the album is still hot and this would make fans even more excited. What I mean is,creating anticipation and thirst for a whole year planning to do it again,the fans would know what’s up. Even Bey knows that. But she’s a game changer,she’ll probably come up with more ways of dropping albums that will take people by surprise. She just proved that she isn’t afraid to take risks,I see her taking even more in future. Maybe next time will be even more legendary.

  55. QUEEN MINAJ♥ March 3, 2014

    I wounder how much floponce had to pay iTunes to get her album to the number 1 spot? maybe if other artist paid Apple and itunes to get that number 1 spot maybe they could have a album sell “1 million” in a week as well… hummm….

  68. Yazmine March 3, 2014

    Certain artists could never do what she did because after all these years she still has a certain pull to her name that EVERYONE goes crazy over her doing, even the smallest thing.

    And the same people hollering that it had build up are the same people kept trolling this site with HER ALBUM IS NEVER COMING OUT lmao.

  69. slay_hive March 3, 2014

    I dont agree with TROLLbird. Especially after the entire year of 2013, you were saying she was scared to release a single/album. NOW you knew it was coming but didn’t know when? #b*******!

    Beyonce never opened her mouth about her album. She didn’t release any official singles to itunes, No one knew the title of the album or direction she was taking and she didn’t have a promoted release date.
    Songwriters/Producers giving unconfirmed information doesn’t equate as “hype”.

    Beyonce never scrapped her album. watch @ 2:18 “I didn’t want anyone to put the word out about when my album was coming, It will come when it is READY and from me to my fans.” BEYONCE-The Visual Album Pt. 1

    Stop spreading false biased information. Beyonce was obviously still recording and shooting multiple videos for her PLANNED visual album. When you are a star of her status, it’s hard to keep everything a secret. Especially while on a public video shoot.

  70. Beyonce is NOT God March 3, 2014

    Why do people feel the need to kiss this woman’s ass so much tho? Only delusional people actually believe she is God pathetic find your life!

  71. TJ March 3, 2014

    Who?

  72. coolness March 3, 2014

    What Beyonce did was truly a game changer. Like, seriously, I can only think of a handful of artists that could probably pull this off; Jay-Z (maybe), JT, Taylor Swift and Eminem because regardless of the album’s content, they have a trustworthy fan-base that doesn’t flip-flop and actually BUYS albums as opposed to illegally downloading it. For that, she and her team must be commended because they really thought it through and executed it perfectly. People are so quick to discredit Beyonce but 10 years from now, there will be retrospectives discussing how she was able to take such a risk and reap immense benefits from it.

    I mean, she teased (or trolled, lol) fans the whole 2013 and then boom! She dropped her masterpiece in the dead of the night. That being said, other artists should follow suit with regards to not making their albums immediately available via streaming as it depletes sales. They should also make their albums available to other outlets too but the whole drop an album with no single or initial promo is dumb as hell if you aren’t some of the said artists above.

  76. Truth March 3, 2014

    Beyonce has really come a long way this era I’m so proud of her but the H** need to humble themselves she is not a crazy album seller don’t be delusional she’s no Adele or Taylor Swift she hasn’t sold 8 million since I AM..Sasha Fierce in 2009 she won’t sell anywhere near that this time even with Promo I predict under 5 million BOOKMARK ME

  77. DIGGER BEY March 3, 2014

    AngryBird Your Seeeeeeeeeething B*tch Ass is probably the one who did it. Your ass is just mad i called ur miserable lonely ass out. #PATHETIC C*NT

  78. Matt March 3, 2014

    Lets compare her to REAL ALBUM SELLERS she is perhaps the biggest and most popular female in the United States well at least the biggest African American artist YET she has yet to sell big numbers in the US think about it Taylor Swift sold 4 million with every album Taylor Swift 5x platinum Fearless 6x platinum Speak Now 4x platinum and RED 4x platinum and these are SALES not SHIPMENTS she’s lagging it

  79. The undisputed truth March 3, 2014

    Why do people feel the need to bring up Adele or Taylor Swift? Is it because your faves can’t compete? lmao

    The Hive will brag all we want, ESPECIALLY after the hate and trolling we recieved last year 2013, and the two years before that.

    She has only released one album since IASF. 4 was the only album to under perform and that was because it wasn’t commercial like IASF. This new album will see or 5 MIllion WW. It is already nearing 3 Million in less than 3 months. I see double this by the end of the year with more single releases and performances.

    I won’t bookmark anything a wasps has to say, because ya’ll were saying she was suppsed to flop and she didnt. She has proved ya’ll wrong on everything ya’ll predicted.

  80. The undisputed truth March 3, 2014

    Taylor Swift is a white county artist with a large teen following. Her music is nothing special and she will not be seeing these numbers 17 years into her career. White artists generally sale better than african american artists now-a-days anyway.

    What other Black artist is selling like Beyonce in 2014?………………………………

    Stop comparing her to Adele and Taylor.

  81. BEYHIVE_MINAJ March 3, 2014

    SHUT THE F*** UP. We will be cocky all we want. Do you know the amount of dragging we’ve gone through since 2011? Everyone can be cocky but when the hive does it,it’s a big deal? LMFAO It’s our turn to laugh at you b******.

  82. BEYHIVE_MINAJ March 3, 2014

    LOL @ people bringing up Adele and Taylor. That’s how you know they’ve failed. Y’all said
    She wouldn’t sell more than 200k first week
    Her tour would flop
    The album will scan gold at best
    She’s a has-been
    She won’t have another top 10 hit

    And you expect us to bookmark you? LOL I WILL bookmark you,just to laugh at y’all even more. I have bookmarked receipts from August+ and even a few days before the album dropped,and I open them anytime I need a good laugh. Thank you to the wasps for being our good luck charms. We love y’all like XO!

  83. DIGGER BEY March 3, 2014

    Why is it that everytime the poptart stans can’t come for THE QUEEN. They name drop Adele or Taylor Swift??? Lets be clear. Even though both have sold a lot of albums. Neither one aren’t on THE QUEEN’S level and they will tell u that out their own mouth. If Taylor ass was bigger, her tour would of outgrossed TMCSWT. Adele is heading towards her third album. Just like how everybody was Lady Gaga this and that a few years ago. Her career now has stalled. Let them b*tches careers play out. They probablywon’t even see THE QUEEN’S longevity. Neither one are icons are a living legend. Neither one gets the praise and respect THE QUEEN gets.

    They even deluded themselves to the point where they thought they are responsible for taking out Ashanti and them.

    They deserve ALL THE DRAGGING they got and then some.

    The SH.IT hive even turned on FLOPga after kissing her ass during the Fame/Fame Monster eras.

    Most disgusting deplorable queeny annoying no walls, loose booty, grotesque fan base in the music industry.

    The monsters look like saints compared to the H**++

  86. slay_hive March 3, 2014

    chile Adele probably won’t see half of those numbers with her next album. Especially if she doesn’t have a rolling in the deep type of slayage to build hype again. LOL

  87. DIGGER BEY March 3, 2014

    Taylor Swift has those teens buying her albums right now. Her ass is gonna be just like Britney Spears n 5 years. Those teens will grow up.

  88. Lovebird March 3, 2014

    Digger Bey, noty fault you forgot to change your email address; dead at you trying to transfer the blame for your sloppiness.

  89. slay_hive March 3, 2014

    AWWWW LOVEBIRD is mad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The same Lovebird that can’t miss a Beyonce post with the same “disgusting” HIve. HOw f****** ironic!

    STAY MAD B**** YOU PSYCHO TAR BLACK INSECURE QUEEN!!!!!!!!!

    We don’t have any f**** to give lol

  90. Lovebird March 3, 2014

    Skank_HIV+ and yet you never miss a Rihanna post; irony indeed.

  91. slay_hive March 3, 2014

    No honey irony it is not. I am NOT in EVERY Rihanna post, because I simply don’t give a f*** about her like that. But I can go to EVERY Beyonce post in the archives and see your TROLL name, more than any fan. kii Get real B****!

  92. My Forehead Tho March 3, 2014

    Taking the surprise part out, many artist would benefit from releasing an album like Beyonce. I wouldn’t mind Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Adele, Emeli Sande, Kanye etc, who already have a strong following and who make albums not single compilations, releasing entire albums first then singles later.

  93. Skyfall March 3, 2014

    Girl bye, Adele 21 is still charting in the billboard hot 200 after 3 years. I predict Adele will sell well over 500k first week and the album will peak with a minimum of 5x platinum in the US. One does not go from selling over 27 million WW to not selling at all within a span of one album idc who it is.

  94. slay_hive March 3, 2014

    Ok well we’ll see when Adele releases. hopefully she’ll have a rolling in the deep type of slayage, for the bandwagon fans sake 😉

  95. DIGGER BEY March 3, 2014

    AngryBird….I’m LMFAO @ U and these sloppy h*** trying to set me up lmmfaoooo. THE QUEEN IS WINNING AND SO IS THE HIVE! U Crabs n a Barriel h*** can’t take it so, what u all do. Set me up Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. 1.7 million a months says THE QUEEN has a Massive Fanbase. I don’t have to TROLL TGJ 24/7 to make nothing seem real. #KEEP THE STRUGGLING H***

  96. BEYHIVE_MINAJ March 3, 2014

    Awww, look at Birdshit crying. LMFAOOOOO tar baby tried sitting with the hive once the album dropped,but we rejected him. #GoodBye

  97. Emeral March 3, 2014

    Beyoncé did that, now everyone who releases a surprise album will be associated with what she did. I’ve already read people refer to it as a ‘beyonce’. ANd yes there were teases about Beyonce’s album, but never a guarantee.

  98. BEYHIVE_MINAJ March 3, 2014

    @Slay_Hive ROTFL Remember how they all tried to brush it off once hurricane Yonce came and destroyed everyone on the 13th? LOLOLOLOLOL

  99. Emeral March 3, 2014

    I’m sorry but you can’t go from believing she’s scared to release/ will never release to ‘everyone knew it was coming/ the promo was realll’. You have to pick one.

  100. L21480 March 3, 2014

    This only works if the artist has a committed and rock solid fan base. Let the wrong artist (aka silly little single sellers) try this stunt and it’ll literally be a career killer.

  101. mya March 3, 2014

    Gosh, some of you are so dumb. What article are you reading to where is says it was apples idea? Lmaooo! Like I know hating Beyoncé makes people stupid but, you all can’t be that dumb lmao! Obv BEYONCÉ was a huge success. It broke countless iTunes records around the world. It’s the fastest-selling album in iTunes Store history globally. 1 million copies in 5 days on iTunes is unheard of, 88k in 3 hours, No. 1 in 111 countries which has NEVER been done, the album crashed iTunes. Beyoncé has changed the music game. The album was an event. It was a huge success for iTunes, reason why they want more people to follow Beyoncé’s lead lol. Beyoncé is a genuis, there are so many factors why it worked for Beyoncé and why it won’t work for others. She has the Star Power. No one else could pull this off but Beyoncé and anyone who try’s they will be compared to her, and they’re already doing so. As it is called “Pullin A Beyoncé” google it if you like. Beyoncé is the most impactful artist in this generation. Years from now people will ask “Where were you when Beyoncé’s album dropped?” It was an event, it wa the talk of the world and you wanted to be apart of it fan or not. The album has already sold over 3 million copies in 2 months.

  102. slay_hive March 3, 2014

    @BeyHive_Minaj

    Yes I remember. they were all being so nice, even saw a few Beyonce bandwagon fan accounts appear for a minute. Then the hate slowly creeped back, “The hype will die before new years”, “she won’t get any hits from this album”, ETC!!!!! 😀

    I die laughing at how pressed they are! kii Very entertaining and I enjoy pissing them off even more LOL

  103. fraudei Bey March 3, 2014

    She can keep buying her alums on itunes all she wants no ones is being fooled by her fraudulent ways. except maybe the Ghetto Hive those idiots believe anything.

  104. slay_hive March 3, 2014

    “She can keep buying her alums on itunes”

    Receipts or STFU. LOL

  105. BEYHIVE_MINAJ March 3, 2014

    Y’all think that she bought her entire career,but by that logic she should be broke. And we’re the “idiots” who believe everything? Chile..

  106. Brandys Starr March 3, 2014

    A lot of artists could learn from what Beyoncé did. I can honestly say (without mentioning names) she made some of her competitors look pretentious and stupid in comparison.

  107. THE GREAT LACEFRONCE. March 3, 2014

    @MYA

    Stop the LIES, THE FLEA HIVE is simply delusional

    THIEVINGonce has sold 2.8 million, where do you get “over 3 million” from LOL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  108. Theman March 3, 2014

    Streaming an album could wait.. They should just release the singles for streaming. But as for the albums they shouldn’t be released right away. While streaming could get a few people to purchase your album, it’s a risk that people may not buy it.. They should get the album when everyone else does.. Everyone can’t do this.. Albums are different from cheap singles..

  109. ashley March 3, 2014

    Beyonce is really a legend for her generation. Everything she does no matter how big or small, is recognized. Kudos to Beyonce for starting a new trend in the industry. It certainly paid off, and I see more artists taking this approach. Maybe not the surprise release part, but releasing exclusively to itunes. It worked out great for Beyonce. So why not.
    I also love how she took a risk and bother focusing so much on a single (this generation’s main concern). Hopefully more artists will dedicate time to an entire body of work and not just quick hit singles (inserts your fave here). Beyonce is the real icon of this genration. Proud to be a fan

  110. ashley March 3, 2014

    Lacefronce why are you keeping up with Beyonce’s album sales?

    You do realize that she’s catching up to unapologetic’s sales and it hasn’t been 6 months yet? lmao

  111. Skyfall March 3, 2014

    Whoever says Beyonce buys her own albums is an idiot period. That would mean she would have to of had over a million apple devices and apple ids + over 1 million credit cards

  112. ashley March 3, 2014

    wait she’s already outsold unapologetic in the U.S. and coming for her WW sales soon. Without that #1 single ya’ll love to brag about. lmao

  113. Lexus March 3, 2014

    You H**+ are so insecure you can never praise your fav without bringing down others smh

  114. Lovebird March 3, 2014

    But why can’t she get a #1 single though? Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift, Adele all manage to sell both albums and singles, why can’t Beyonce?

    Even RIHANNA had a #1 album and #1 single in the same week.

  115. Alex March 3, 2014

    It has NOT outsold Unapologetic WW yet stfu it’s not even 3 million WW you girls are reaching for the stars

  116. Lovebird March 3, 2014

    And don’t forget it took Beyonce 2-3 years for 4 to sell 2.8 million, hence the gimmick for this new album.

  117. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    Yes lovebird preach!! Taylor had to go generic to go #1 beyonce hasn’t had a #1 hit in 6 years!!!!!!! That’s a failure

  118. RoyalKev March 3, 2014

    Honestly this strategy is just simply not for everybody. Only a few artists will see this work right now (for different reasons). Some off the top of my head:

    Adele
    Janet Jackson
    Nicki Minaj
    Lil Wayne
    Taylor Swift
    Sade
    (new) Kanye West
    (new) Jay Z
    (new) Eminem
    Gaga would have made this list (before Born This Way/Artpop) …

  119. ashley March 3, 2014

    Alex If you would re-read my comment and comprehend, You will see that I said she will be outselling unapologetic’s WW #’s SOON sweets. It’s just the truth. accept it 😉

    @Lovebird

    A #1 single isn’t everything, especially when it doesn’t sell albums. btw DIL will be platinum soon. Beyonce released her album before her singles, and is still managing to sale singles and chart. She will have more singles to chart as well

  120. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    AND to those saying Beyonce is some huge seller and currently sales more than rihanna in what world is that true? Beyonce has not been successful This decade until NOW her album is about 3 million WW and will sell more in the future but she will never ever see I AM..Sasha Fierce #s again

  121. Skyfall March 3, 2014

    Beyonce can’t get a #1 because most people bought the album so it would be foolish of them to buy the single as well because they already the song

  122. Georgie March 3, 2014

    I anticipate she is going to own the Grammys next year possibly along with Adele. Her album is her most critically acclaimed to date and this move just gives even more ratings. She may even get some special recognition for it. I can imagine it getting a further sales boost from all the award shows next year and her rocking up to the Grammys pregnant.

  123. ashley March 3, 2014

    Lovebird 4 was an R&B album without a commercial #1 hit.
    Britney Spears couldn’t even achieve those numbers with femme fatale a #1 single, and several top tens, and both albums were released the same year. A hit is not everything, especially with the low standard’s of today’s hits. Beyonce is a force. accept it

  124. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    I know people are not buying her singles because they have the album but it just bothers me how anyone can just say singles are nothing when MOST artists can’t get a #1 WW like rihanna and have it sell like crazy

  125. Yeah I Said It March 3, 2014

    Beyoncé sold her album with no lead single, no radio support prior at all. She cannot be compared to anyone else at this point since none of them released singles simultaneously with their album or released an album the way she did.

  126. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    No one is denying Beyonces impact she is slaying and I’m all for it but to discredit other artists to make her look like God is pitiful considering she has not even outsold her peers

  127. ashley March 3, 2014

    Beyonce has only released two albums this decade 4 (2011) and Beyonce(2013), while Rihanna has released 3 and working on the fourth. Beyonce’s album sales are typically better than Rihanna’s. She has outsold Rihanna’s discography in the U.S. alone with less albums. Beyonce will see IASF abd BDay numbers, It’s already headed in that direction. It’s a shame that someone with more albums and #1 singles is behind in album sales. 🙁

  128. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    At the end of the game she is a TOP black artist that even black male artist cannot outsell

  129. ashley March 3, 2014

    Well the Beyonce fans are only responding to other fans discrediting Beyonce, so I don’t understand what you are saying. Plus they are only speaking the truth. accept it 😀

  130. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    @ashley is that to mean anything? Rihanna is only 26 and is doing great considering she is NOT an album artist going platinum yearly and she will most definitely not see I Am…Sasha Fierce numbers again with THIS album considering it SOLD 8 million this album is barely 3 the delusion is REAL in the HIVE

  131. ashley March 3, 2014

    Rihanna is 26 and Beyonce is 32. Not much of an age difference. Beyonce is doing great being that she has been in the industry 17 years, a mother, and doesn’t have 10 albums with 20 #1 hits to help her sell. LOL

    You also failed to mention that BEYONCE is almost 3 million in less than THREE months. She has sold over 75% of Unapologetics sales in months, without the aid of a “#1 single”. LOL The only one that is delusional is you, if you don’t see that this album will sell like IASF and BDAY. LOL It is already outselling them on average.

  132. Lovebird March 3, 2014

    Ashley babe, that excuse for 4 is tired. I thought she’s “Beyonce”, the “top black artist” according to the hive, change the record.

    RoyalKev

    I agree, this strategy can only work for certain artists. For example with Rihanna it would work in EU where she’s huge, her US Navy is lazy.

  133. ashley March 3, 2014

    No that excuse isn’t tired. It was the highest selling R&B album of 2011. Love on Top was a mega hit on R&B radio. Name an R&B artist that can achieve those WW numbers today? Name one of her pop contemporaries that can sell an R&B album with no commercial hits and tour with that very same album years later. It’s not an excuse, it’s the truth. She followed NO trends with 4 and was still rewarded. None of your faves can do that. sorrynotsorry

  134. ROSEGOLD March 3, 2014

    Why do yall argue with Lovebored everyday? He’s a troll and not worth it.

  135. Lovebird March 3, 2014

    An artist that can achieve those WW numbers today? Alicia Keys. Different record please.

  136. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    I’m not delusional you are this album will not sell 8 million copies puck outta here and do you really want to talk about quantity? When she released almost every single from 4 and they ALL flopped hard all the seats in the world for you

  137. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    @lovebird Drag a bit sis? Yas

  138. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    This album will NOT sell 8 million Stay Mad!

  139. ashley March 3, 2014

    Lovebird Try again. Alicia Keys last few albums barely saw over gold. I say again what other R&B artists TODAY is selling 3 Million WW?…………………..I’ll wait

    @Diamonds

    Once again 4 was strictly R&B. Still has platinum singles and Love on top was #1 for seven weeks on R&B chart. No other R&B female artist is accomplishing that.

    You don’t know what this album will sell. It will surely outsell Loud, TTT, and UNA. It’s already on course to with more singles, Performances, and her tour. 😀

    stay mad and delusional sir/mam

  140. RoyalKev March 3, 2014

    @ Lovebird

    I actually think it’s not in everyone’s interest to just blindly follow behind someone that operates in a way that doesn’t appeal to everyone. Rihanna releases singles and then drops an album. That has proven to work time after time for her, if it’s not broke don’t fix it!

    This kind of strategy really depends heavily on the artist. Many WILL FAIL if they rush into this sort of thing. Streaming singles help certain artists sell. Sometimes big hit singles create the best hype for certain individuals. Artists have to not only know their place in the industry, but their fan base as well.

  141. Fran March 3, 2014

    Beyonce is the only black female who can go multiplatinum today. Her only album to not go multiplatinum was 4. This one will.

    I don’t understand why some people are here. Like why are you here? The facts remain Beyonce outdid everyone, the people who need lead singles and HUGE radio support to push their album only to see miserable underwhelming album sales in conparison. Beyonce made people interested in her album as a BODY of work again. It wasn’t about the singles. But she was lucky because she still got a hit as a bonus aswell.

    She done what not many people can do, she slayed to the fullest both critically AND commercially. She achieved what she set out to achieve.

  142. JOSE March 3, 2014

    Beyonce will sell maybe 4 million worldwide her fans are the biggest jokes

  143. ashley March 3, 2014

    She wasn’t supposed to outsell 4. now it’s 4 million. lmao ya’ll are the joke. Still predicting when everything else has already failed. lol

    tbh the navy is the biggest joke they would rather buy singles than albums. lmao now that’s funny

  144. ***flawless March 3, 2014

    NO Rihanna fans are the joke. It is so funny how mad ya’ll have been. Beyonce is slaying with ease. It’s killing ya’ll lmaoooooooo

  145. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    Lol ashley dead LOUD sold 6 million i don’t see this selling more or even that because she is not going another tour for this album and if she does I just don’t see seeing as the US is her biggest market where it will only stall at 2x platinum it will not go triple platinum not in her lifetime that is

  146. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    I shouldn’t of called 4 a flop but that fact remains she started slaying with THIS album tho before that she was no where near as successful as I Am..Sasha era except her tour of course

  147. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    I’m unbothered honey I just want to clock the HIVE

  148. Fran March 3, 2014

    Oh and no one cares what you can predict. You’ve been proved time and time again to be wrong in every prediction.

    This time last year, if the Hive was to predict the numbers Beyonce has just done, yall would have called us crazy.

    In fact, I remember a Lamb saying Beyonce would sell 500k first week last year, and people laughed and said they would bookmark him/her to mock it.

  149. ashley March 3, 2014

    I know what loud sold, and it is pathetic being that IASF and BDay outsold it by Millions with only ONE #1 single on each. This album will surely sell over 5 million. It is already a few weeks from 3 million in a 2 1/2 months. Why are the navy so delusional? lmao She has more singles to release and she hasn’t even begun promoting. Accept that Beyonce is a bigger and better artist than Rihanna. She sells more and is more respected without milking the industry with gerneric singles and albums.

  150. JOSE March 3, 2014

    Yall stay pressed about Rih. Rihanna is a consistent seller, her past two albums have each sold 3 million ww so obviously she can sell singles and albums

    And 4 was R&B/POP, Alicia Keys is a REAL R&B artist

  151. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    That’s the problem with the HIVE they think anything that is not Beyonce is generic you girls need to realize Beyonce is NOT God

  152. ashley March 3, 2014

    sorry hun you’re not clocking anyone with your delusionals and failing to accept the facts. do you honestly think Rihanna could abandon pop for an era and sell an R&B album without depending on commercial #1 hits? Sad thing is 4 sold what Rated R sold, and it had a number 1 single. Her hits are nothing special. Only forgettable generic pop tunes.

  153. ashley March 3, 2014

    who said Beyonce was god? We are only defending her like you are doing for Rihanna? Why so mad lmao

  154. ashley March 3, 2014

    4 was R&B honey, and Rihanna is not consistent. Going from 4 Million WW (TTT) to 3.4 Million (UNA). both with “hit” singles. Her sales are in decline. Her U.S. sales are not consistent and they are weak with all of her hit singles. Why did 4 outsell unapologetic and TTT in the U.S??? lmao

  155. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    So I’m not accepting facts huh? Delusional No it will not sell 8 million which is what you propose it will sell saying it will sell like B’Day and I Am.. No it will not because its not even 3 million but if she does congrats to her all she needs is a miracle lol

  156. ashley March 3, 2014

    You don’t know what it will sell. It WILL outsell Rihanna. You know it. I know it. Everyone knows it. Accept it 😉

    It’s only been two months and it’s nearing 3 million. Are you slow baby? lmao

  157. Fran March 3, 2014

    @Diamond why the f*** do you care how much it will sell in the long run? Go over to Rihanna Daily or something gosh.

  158. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    Girl rihanna is unbothered seeing as she OUTSOLD your fav Worldwide and beyonce has NOt sold 40 million albums yet I thought she was KING kii

  159. JOSE March 3, 2014

    I Am Sasha Fierce was re-released like two times lol, both of those re-releases count towards sales yet you’re bragging about it selling Loud by one million copies LOL

  160. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    @Fran honey am I bothering you? Lol stay mad!

  161. ashley March 3, 2014

    Rihanna has not outsold Beyonce’s album sales WW sweets. Rihanna should be MILLIONS ahead of Beyonce with 800 albums and 9000 singles, but she is NOT. Beyonce is the King and she doesn’t have to try hard like others. Bey is unbothered, as always 😀

  162. Fran March 3, 2014

    @Diamonds honey is Bey bothering you? Since you’re the one perched in her post dahling!

  163. ashley March 3, 2014

    Everyone knows re-releases do absolutely NOTHING for sales. IASF was already selling before the re-release.

    Now GGGB only reached 9 Million WW because it was re-released with Disturbia as the lead single. It was basically promoted as a new album, with sells added to the original release. Dangerously In Love didn’t need a re-release to sell 11 Million WW. Beyonce is superior. accept it 😉

  164. Yeah I Said It March 3, 2014

    We all know Rihanna could never do what Beyonce just did. She has to sell her album every November shes such a struggle. And she even discounted Rated R and still couldn’t do 300k. Its funny how Rihanna fans always want to come for 4s sales, do they forget Rated R happened? And that s*** had a #1 single. The struggle.

  165. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    Beyonce is BARELY beating her…BARELY and she’s this really Big album seller so I heard from the HIVE kii how you going to let someone like rihanna that the HIVE claims CANNOT sell an album be only 3 million behind her pathetic

  166. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    She doesn’t have to she is still outselling her and will continue on AT LEAST RIHANNA can sale singles what does beyonce have? She’s only ahead by 3 million albums I thought she was KANG right?

  167. ashley March 3, 2014

    Diamonds you have confirmed that you are slow. Beyonce has less albums than Rihanna. Where is your logic? Beyonce shouldn’t be “barely” beating her. Rihanna should be winning, but she is not, because she is a single artist with mediocre album sells. Beyonce’s albums always sell better. accept it 😀

  168. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    That’s not the point In 11 years Beyonce has sold 33 million albums in ELEVEN YEARS! While someone who can’t sell albums AT ALL by the HIVE+ sold 30 million like really that’s the king everyone is supposed to be afraid of? Lol she hasn’t even sold 100 million records you girls stay trying it

  169. ashley March 3, 2014

    Beyonce 5 albums 11 years>>>>>>

    Rihanna 7 albums in 7 years>>>>>>>

    Like I said dummy, with her having WAY more albums and hit singles her sales should be WAY above Beyonce’s but IT IS NOT! Just imagine if Beyonce chose to release yearly. She would KILL rihanna. give it up. Beyonce is superior lmao

  170. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    She’s the KANG right? Lol

  171. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    I didn’t know 2 was a very large number of albums Oh the hive but rih can’t sell albums remember? And no I will not admit something that is not true beyonce has yet to outsell rihanna I will wait my entire lifetime for that to happen I guess

  172. ashley March 3, 2014

    Rihanna’s the POP ICON right?? lmao

  173. Sass March 3, 2014

    Beyonce the game changer. Thats right b****** will just follow her lead!

  174. ashley March 3, 2014

    Beyonce just released her 5th album months ago. The total sells have not been released because the era has just begun pea brain. lmao
    Rihanna on the other hand, is getting ready to release her 8th and possibly 9th album this year. You are seriously delusional. I’m done with you. Beyonce>>> NOTALENTanna

  175. DIGGER BEY March 3, 2014

    H**’se…….IASF was already pass 2X in the US and over 6 million WW when the re released happen. The re release wasn’t even a major sales factor like Hoeianna’s Good Girl Gone H** re released. @ Diamonds…..Rihoeanna has only sold around 27 million albums. THE QUEEN has passed 30 million. Hoeianna only has one album that have sold over 7 million. THE QUEEN has 3. #HOEIANNA WHO

  176. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    No talent that’s so tired blahhh And DEAD @THIS TRANNY @DIGGERBEY coming for me WELL THA KANG YOU SPEAK OF CANT EVEN OUTSELL RIHANNA CHECK YOUR FACTS B4 YOU COME FOR ME H**

  177. slay_hive March 3, 2014

    This Diamonds b**** is obviously not very smart or just a troll kii. Ashley dragged that ass SMH

  178. Sass March 3, 2014

    Beyonce is the King of her fan base, the Hive. B****** be taking that term too personal. Never did she say she was king of music. Unlike Rihanna fans who call their fave the biggesst popstar in the world yet shes steady getting outdown by someone in one lane or another. If its not Beyonce in Touring and wealth, Taylor/Beyonce and many others in albums, even Katy is coming for her singles wig without needing to release double singles to ge there. I can’t.

  179. Sass March 3, 2014

    get***

  180. DIGGER BEY March 3, 2014

    Hoeianna is So a Lesser B*tch in selling albums. If THE QUEEN had released 7 albums i know for a fact she would be over or right at 20 million sold. Hoeianna is only around 10 million sold with 7 lmao. Where they do that at????? #FLOPIANNA

  181. Sass March 3, 2014

    outdone*****

  182. slay_hive March 3, 2014

    “Beyonce is the King of her fan base, the Hive”

    Will they ever get that???? I don’t see the Hive getting super sensitive over “That Rihanna Reign” because we know it isn’t true. LOL

  183. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    WOW JUST WOW EVERYONE AND THEIR MOM IS COMING FOR ME @Slore_Hiv+ IF I WAS A TROLL I WOULD HIDE BEHIND MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS GIRL YOU TRIED… AND WHICH PEER OF RIHANNA HAS OUTSOLD HER ENTIRE DISCOGRAPHY THO? BEY IS NOT HER PEER YET SHE OUTSOLD HER ASS next *kisses you*

  184. Sass March 3, 2014

    But thats how intimidated yall feel about Beyonce. Queen/King Bey = Queen of the Beyhive. Yall automatically assume shes on some MJ wave with that title.

  185. slay_hive March 3, 2014

    Girl you are a troll. I’ve never seen your name before. More than likely you are lovebird, boytoy, or one of the other regular AIDSvy.

    Rihanna has not outsold Bey sweetheart. Get off of whatever drugs you are on, and face reality. k 😉

  186. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    AND DEAD AT YOU GUYS MENTIONING KATY …A LESSER SHE WILL NEVER DETHRONE RIH AS THE BIGGEST POP STAR WHOS BIGGER THAN RIH THAT’S STILL HERE THO? BRITNEY IS ABOVE BEYONCE SO YOU GUYS HAVE TO OUTSELL HER TO COME FOR RIH

  187. slay_hive March 3, 2014

    LOOOOL this b**** is delusional and crazy

  188. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    IM NEW TO COMMENTING BUT HAVE ALWAYS BEEN READING B**** GOTTA PROBLEM? @Slore_Hiv+ Lol anyways RECORDS WISE RIH SHITS ON BEY ANYDAY AND ALBUMS SALES C’MON THE SELF PROCLAIMED KANG OF MUSIC IS ONLY 3 MILLION AWAY GIRL YOU KEEP TRYING IT

  189. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    I’m having so much fun commenting thank you all so much for saying pressed

  190. Sass March 3, 2014

    The caps meltdown kii. None of that comment even has logic.
    You can’t expect to come on Beyonce post as some random chatting ish and not get dragged by the Hive returning to THEIR faves post. Bye sis.

  191. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    Staying*

  192. slay_hive March 3, 2014

    Rihanna’s Record sales comes from her singles. She does have a zillion more albums and singles. Where’s the logic miss honey. I’m still searching for it! kii

    And you’re not new. You are trolling under a NEW troll account! LOL

  193. Sass March 3, 2014

    ‘Self proclaimed King of music’

    Once again, where did she claim she was King of music? You read my comment and still didn’t even digest it. @Ashley never lied when she said this b**** is slow af.

  194. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    I have my opinion just like everyone else and I will say it seeing as they always post about her i will express my oil ion don’t like it not my problem and the HIVE+ are so insecure it’s funny how they are the only fan base that can only praise their god beyonce kii

  195. HOTSTUFF March 3, 2014

    The question is why isn’t she slaying outside of the US? is beyonso ‘strong’ fan base local ? is Beyonso local ? Seeing her US sales it should’ve crossed the 5M mark WW by now…Can we talk about LOCAL slayage ? and where’s that global hit boo boo? *Sips tea*

  196. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    2 is not a zillion try agin dear and why does it matter if RIH can’t even sale an album tho she just can’t seem to sell them according to you girls And I’m a new commenter dont believe me suck my C*OCK H**

  197. Sass March 3, 2014

    @Hotstuff honey. Beyonce has sold more WW in 9 weeks than your fav has ever done at 9 weeks. Try again.

  198. slay_hive March 3, 2014

    No babe, you are insecure. If you weren’t you wouldn’t be so bothered by what we are saying to our “god”. When all other stan bases do the same. People just get insecure with the Hive does it. I wonder why? is it because deep down you b****** know our fave is better? I think so

    Sn: People always ignore when the Hive gives other artists props. Maybe NOT your fave, but others. Ya’ll stay seething over what we say

    BEYONCE>>>>>>> rihanna DEAL!

  199. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    @HOTSTUFF HI THANK YOU FOR SPILLING THAT TEA

  200. slay_hive March 3, 2014

    [email protected] SASS

    They always want to bring up WW. kii When she is over 1 Million WW.

    Why does Rihanna flop in the U.S. with all of her #1’s. That is the question that needs to be answered! LOL

  201. Sass March 3, 2014

    The Navy is always quick to call the Hive insecure, yet they are the ones in a Bey post doing the most. You’ve been here longer than all the Hive lmao. Tbh this has nothing to do with Rihanna weak ass. Beyonce is slaying in avenues Rihanna could never.

  202. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    That’s your opinion and facts say rihanna outsold bey so rihanna>beyonce

  203. slay_hive March 3, 2014

    Unapologetic should be @ 10 million WW then. Especially since she had a hit single pushing it. explain?? lol

  204. DIGGER BEY March 3, 2014

    Yessssss I live for the meltdowns…..when they start typing n caps lmfaoooooo

  205. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    I’m laughing so hard girls stop it!

  206. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    @DiggerHoe that’s not a meltdown I like typing like that you gotta problem with it?

  207. slay_hive March 3, 2014

    yas girl I’m laughing at your delusion. You must have an egg shell for a skull kii

  208. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    That’s none of your concern how much it sold because this decade RIH has been winning bey barely got a break with this album I can’t believe it hasn’t even sold 3 million yet and the HIVE+ is praising this album like it was the second coming

  209. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    Slore_Hiv+ Gurl bye you don’t know me I don’t have to explain myself to you I could go on but I know you won’t believe me anyways

  210. Sass March 3, 2014

    You can’t beleive it hasn’t sold 3 million after being out less than 3 months. And yet your fave is barely over 3 million after a YEAR? The self dragging.

  211. slay_hive March 3, 2014

    wait. I’m confused when has Rihanna sold 3 Million WW in three months? Even with a #1 single? LOL Gurl SAT!

    Metacritic has praised this album (85) as well 😉

  212. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    WHO RMBS Local Ladies beyonce’s last hit Oops only number one in the US and Brazil

  213. slay_hive March 3, 2014

    no honey go on. I’m getting a great laugh out of this. lmaoo

  214. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    Also #FACT TELEPHONE BY LADY GAGA FT BEYONCE was the biggest hit of her career internationally

  215. slay_hive March 3, 2014

    Singles ladies, the song from the album IASF. The one that sold 8 Million WW. compared to LOUD with 3 #1’s @ 6 Million?? 😀

  216. ashley March 3, 2014

    She is still carrying on with it’s ignorance?

  217. Sass March 3, 2014

    @Ashley @Slay_Hive at this rate, I’d rather go back and forth with bitchbird. This weak b**** drag is itself lmfao.

  218. BEYFLAWLESS March 3, 2014

    can i just say that picture of her give me life

  219. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    I don’t know what this album is going to sell but it will never reach the success of B’Day and I AM.. I don’t care if it got a 100 on metacritic or that beyonce actually wrote her songs this time that doesn’t translate into sales

  220. ashley March 3, 2014

    yeah this thing has a hard time accepting the facts lmao

  221. Naomi March 3, 2014

    Her impact though.

  222. ashley March 3, 2014

    you still don’t know what this album will sale though. Go and buy more copies of Unapologetic so you won’t be embarrassed when Beyonce surpasses it, with it’s “international” hit lmao

  223. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    If I’m dragging myself then you girls are delusional I’m stating facts like Single Ladies was #1 in the US and Brazil Only that wasn’t an opinion oh @ the reach

  224. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    Y’all swear like unapologetic flopped tho she releases yearly yet never sold less than 3 million worldwide the same 4 sold after 2 years after a 3 year break

  225. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    How the hell do you go from 8 million worldwide to 3 million worldwide oh the decline was real

  226. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    Plays We Found Love #1 song in 26 countries ON OFFICIAL CHARTS not iTunes that sold 7 million in the US alone

  227. Naomi March 3, 2014

    @Diamonds can you sit down please. You seem pressed af. I like Rihanna but you’re embarrassing her fan base.

  228. ashley March 3, 2014

    Get a life. no one cares about that generic repetitive song and it’s chart positions. It was still outsold by IASF. lmao

  229. Jdek March 3, 2014

    Let’s just remember beyonce built up hype before her surprise album release. What was bow down? What was grown woman? Who performed at the Super Bowl agian?

    #your-fave-could-never-without-any-hype

  230. DIGGER BEY March 3, 2014

    Lies @ The Caps Meltdown…….BL is THE QUEEN’S biggest International hit. You just continue to seeeedth over 7 albums just @ 10 million lmfao

  231. ashley March 3, 2014

    WFL will be forgotten about ten years from now. That’s how generic it is. lmao

    Beyonce didn’t build any hype. I guess monster and CRTFY will count as Rihanna’s new album hype. She should be able to drop an album with no promo or lead single and sell 1 Million in a week too? lmao

    #Rihannacantwinwithoutahitsingle

  232. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    I’m not concerned about US sales i know damn right my fav is not local like Beyose I always see the hive+ shading but when they get shaded its like shading God and everyone comes for you for it lol and stop talking about me you Will remain a lessor h** @DIGGERBEY

  233. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    2013 was the year year of snippets rmb I Been On lol @ the struggle

  234. I Will Adorn You March 3, 2014

    And now the people using the ‘hype’ excuse, were the same ones back in April saying no one is checking for her anymore. She is done, tired. How can someone no one is checking for and tired get hype?

    Beyoncé proved people are willing to spend money on her album as a collective, some people [insert whoever you wish here] have to build anticipation over their music through singles. Beyonce’s album was like a soundtrack, not just a load of potential chart hits thrown together. That is why it is so acclaimed. She deserves all her success.

  235. ashley March 3, 2014

    of course you’re not concerned with the U.S. because you know she is a flop here and only gets by with single sales. The navy always runs and hide behind international when her sales are still weak then. Always clinging to singles that aren’t helping her album sales.

    How can a “local” artist outgross “international” superstars on a WORLDWIDE tour, with a three year old album? lmaoo

  236. I Will Adorn You March 3, 2014

    I want to know how anyone with highest grossing female world Tour of 2013 be local?

  237. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    You girls are uncomfortable with ANYONE slaying especially any other black female artist that’s why only bey and RIH are at the top because when another black female artist comes into the equation they are dragged for filth black people are so insecure

  238. ashley March 3, 2014

    2013 was the year

    Beyonce performed @ the Superbowl (History)
    Received Fastest selling Digital Album (History)
    Got her FIFTH Consecutive #1 Album ( HIstory)
    Highest grossing Tour of 2013 (Ahead of others with international hits)
    Made the List of Top Ten female tours of all time.

    Yeah 2013 was such a struggle for Beyonce lmao

  239. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    Not a Miguel fan coming for tour stats tho when his album isn’t even good that is Sad and Beyose tour grossed the most at least I can admit it unlike you girls

  240. Lovebird March 3, 2014

    DEATTHHHH!!!!! I WANT TO SEE RECEIPTS OF LOCAL LADIES SELLING 8 MILLION WW. The inflation though.

  241. Sass March 3, 2014

    @Diamond The only one who appears uncomfortable and insecure is you sis. You’re STILL here? This is Beys post. Of course her fans are going to be here to drag.

    Struggle is the fact Rihanna is claiming to be on break, yet she is still performing, hopping on everyones tracks, doing photoshoots and everything you do while working. Her team can’t let her go on a break. Because unlike Beyoncé, one Rihanna goes out of the spotlight, no one is interested. That what happens with artists who need so much smoke and mirrors.

  242. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    #1 albums in the US don’t mean anything stars dance went #1 yours truly went #1 but they aren’t even gold

  243. dezi March 3, 2014

    @ Diamonds -What’s with this black s***? Technically speaking she’s selling better than a lot of WHITE ARTISTS but you wouldn’t dare say that because you like to put black mainstream artists beneath white artists. I don’t ever hear people say he/she is the top white artist but you all do it with black artists because you don’t want them to surpass white artists and needless to say y’all LOVE pitting black artists against each other so what you do is categorize and put black artists in a box and purposely fail to mention struggling white artists while doing so.

    And to the person who said white artists sell better than black artists today – First and foremost white artists who have minimum popularity aren’t selling no more than black artists who have minimum popularity so what’s your point?

    What some of you are doing is comparing popular artists to less popular artists and that’s just the same as comparing apples to oranges. As talented and beautiful as janelle monae is she’s not as popular or successful as rihanna or beyonce because she doesn’t have that MACHINE behind her and plus she keeps her clothes on.

  244. ashley March 3, 2014

    How are we uncomfortable when you are in a Beyonce posts throwing out rihanna’s accomplishments, and don’t say it’s because the hive. I see several navy members shading through-out this post, causing the Hive to attack. The Hive doesn’t care about any other artist because we know our fave is superior and more respected than Rihanna. All ya’ll can name are single stats. That right there shows the struggle to compete and accept that Beyonce is Queen without having to releasing as many albums and singles.

  245. I Will Adorn You March 3, 2014

    @Diamonds. Miguel has nothing to do with the topic at hand. I’m not a Miguel ‘stan’ just because I reference his song.

  246. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    Your so tired @SISSY hopping on everyone’s track DEATH when the only features she had are THE MONSTER AND CRTFY the monster which was #1 for 4 weeks and credited as her 13th #1 according to billboard y’all will deal she snot nicki minaj she didn’t jump on 10 last year delusional is one hell of a drug in the HIVE+

  247. ashley March 3, 2014

    LoveBird I was talking about SL’s parent album IASF outselling TTT, with WFL being a hit in 26 countries. Reading and comprehending is fundamental.

  248. Sass March 3, 2014

    @Diamonds but she is on ‘break’. Why is she track hopping?

  249. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    I don’t know how you could be above anyone yet not outsell them especially when they haven’t even been in the game as long

  250. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    She can do whatever she pleases she is the #1 artist of this decade no one can compare sales or stats wise and whats the point of taking a useless 2-3 year break doing nothing when making music is supposed to be YOUR JOB and she’s doing it

  251. ashley March 3, 2014

    Diamonds please log off and get some rest. How many times do we have to tell you that Rihanna has more albums and singles than Beyonce? lmao Rihanna should definitely be ahead. Especially in the U.S. but she is not. Her sales are weaker than EVERYONE’S. Even with more albums than EVERYONE. Even with more hits than EVERYONE. smh lmao
    Rihanna is only a pop star who will be forgotten about within the next five years, while Beyonce is heading towards legendary status. sorrynotsorry

  252. DIGGER BEY March 3, 2014

    No…The lesser h** is Rihoeanna. 3 million sold over a year, while THE QUEEN reach that n a couple of months. #STRUGGLIANNA

  253. Sass March 3, 2014

    But shes claiming to be on a break from her ‘job’. Yet still doing her job. How does that work?

  254. ashley March 3, 2014

    Rihanna only has to release albums every year to get those single stats and mediocre sales. Just imagine if she took a 2-3 year break? lmao No one would care

  255. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    A legend that can’t even outsell rihanna? Lmao not on this planet

  256. Sass March 3, 2014

    @Diamond. Rihanna has sold more record than Aretha and Prince. That does not make Rihanna superior to them. Now RIHtire b**** with this lame logic of yours.

  257. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    I’m sorry I know I’m bothering you girls lol

  258. Sass March 3, 2014

    Rihanna is like a human conveyer belt. She relies on quantity and churning out s*** like factory for her stats to add up.

  259. ashley March 3, 2014

    Rihanna’s records are from single sales. lol the struggle to make that untalented s*** superior is real

  260. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    @SISSY I don’t care about artists out 60 years ago they are irrelevant to this conversation and nobody is checking for them

  261. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    An untalented singer can never sing a song like Stay or Russian Roulette you girls stay trying it

  262. Sass March 3, 2014

    @Diamonds. And thats how foolish you are, because whether you’re ‘checking’ for them or not, using them as an example shows your logic is flawed.

  263. DIGGER BEY March 3, 2014

    BEYONCE = Over 3 Million Already >>>>>>>>>>>>>> Unafloppppp took a year to cross 3 million. #STRUGGLIANNA

  264. Sass March 3, 2014

    Stay an Russian Roulette are so basic. Theres hardly any range required in either song.

  265. ashley March 3, 2014

    Only 10 Million albums in the U.S. with 13 #1 hits and SEVEN albums. lmaooooooooo Beyonce would NEVER!

  266. ashley March 3, 2014

    stay and russian roulette are so basic and monotonous! Beyonce would have slayed the vocals, adlibs and background on those songs. lol

  267. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    You girls are making me so tired with your comebacks im gonna pass out with boredom

  268. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    We all know If Beyose covered stay it would never be a hit outside the US maybe not even in the US lol

  269. love on top March 3, 2014

    Death at the Hive draggin this heaux! lmaooooooooooooooooooooooo

  270. Sass March 3, 2014

    We all know the Rihanna could never cover Beyonces songs PERIOD.

    Honey, unlike you, we are going back and forth with logic not trying to have lame comebacks. Not saying one thing, then moving on to the next shade after you get clocked. This aint the playground.

  271. Diamonds March 3, 2014

    *plays Vision of Love by mariah carey*

  272. Sass March 3, 2014

    *Plays ‘Hero’ By Rihanna kiiiii

  273. ashley March 3, 2014

    Sass Diamonds is Slayriah. She is so pressed by the Hive. I can’t stand it

  274. ashley March 3, 2014

    Why is you’re mine still flopping down the charts after the BET performance. mariah is such a has been

  275. ashley March 3, 2014

    Mariah will never chart again. She should just scrap this album and retire

  276. ashley March 3, 2014

    Why has Mariah been pushing her album back since 2012? lmao

  277. Sass March 3, 2014

    @Ashley I was thinking the same. When it used the 40 million albums drag I knew I’d heard it before. Now this Vision of Love just confirmed to me. The struggle!!!!!! Why is it so obsessed with Beyonce and the Hive?

  278. ashley March 3, 2014

    slayriah. why you leaving now? Went to go and buy you’re mine?

  279. MC!!!! March 3, 2014

    Why??? Who know how long iTunes will last as the digital provider for music until then I think they should just stick with the CDs this formula is not going to work for everyone and it will get played out quick

  280. Sass March 3, 2014

    Oh…. Not so fast to respond now huh? #Clock’d.

  281. ashley March 3, 2014

    Lmao IKR! Only LAMEriah would quote Vision of Love. I knew something was weird with this troll. Usually you drag the navy and they move on. She just kept going like it didn’t phase her. Not to mention slayriah was just in the Mariah posts but coincidentally missed the Beyonce post. NAH!! I don’t know what her obsession is with the hive, maybe because Beyonce gets praised now, while mariah is a joke, i dunno. lol

  282. ashley March 3, 2014

    LMAO she’s using her other troll account now.

  283. MC!!!! March 3, 2014

    Why is the beyhive so proud she only sold 15 million in the us and had more years to do so that rihanna and she was in the years where you have to purchase CDs! #pathetic

  284. Sandra March 3, 2014

    Nice to see that David Bowie impact though, Beyonce stole his idea right off, by releasing a surprise album with no promo. LOL at beyonce fans acting like beyonce was the first to release an album this way.

  285. Sass March 3, 2014

    @Ashley I know right. That b**** exposed itself. Majority of the Navy, I can hands down say have been quiet because they know they will get dragged. Its like this bish wasn’t fazed by the drag, so it would move on. And also, it used BRITNEY. Another givaway. Imma need @Slay_Hive to return to this post so he can see this mess.

  286. ashley March 3, 2014

    why are the lambs stuck in 1889? Pathetic

  287. Sass March 3, 2014

    No Beyonce wasn’t the first, but she had the most impact. Stay Mad. Apple the ones who quoted it is ‘Beyonce’ type releases.

  288. Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez March 3, 2014

    I see this site is going to turn into “Beyoncé Daily” now. Well anyways, Apple can kiss that idea goodbye because it’s not going to happen…. Why are Beyoncé fans so pressed what does this have to do with the other artists in the game? This is why you’ll never amount to anything or each anywhere, y’all act as if Beyonce’s accomplishments is your accomplishments. Just give credit, be happy for her and stop the unecessary tired shade. Navy leave the Beyhive alone, some of the members are trolls there’s no point in trying to reason with them

  289. Kyle March 3, 2014

    . Just give credit, be happy for her and stop the unecessary tired shade

    Tell that to other fans always bringing the drama into her posts. I’m sorry but don’t think you can come in a Bey post and throw shade and the Hive won’t do the same back. Its always the Hive fault *rolls eye*.

  290. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) March 3, 2014

    SCREAMING @ them thinking I’m Diamonds. I stopped stanning for Rihanna several months ago. I’m TeamMAriah TeamBritney now

  291. mandy March 3, 2014

    who wouldn’t want to do business with a fool who buys 1 million copies of her own work, right out of the gate.

  292. Kyle March 3, 2014

    I love how everything is always Beyonce stans fault, we’re ‘pressed’ but what you forget, this is a post about Beyoncé so her fans will defend. And the Beyoncé fans did not bring in any other artist name up, until shade was thrown first by none other than Rihanna fans. Oh but we’re the pressed ones? And even if they did, the Hive is not the only fan base guilty of it.

  293. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) March 3, 2014

    The hive has the audacity to come @ me when digger bey just flawlessly exposed it self. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who listens to ‘Vision of Love’ because it is a tremendous song. Even Beyonce herself has worshiped that song so let’s not. You desperate hags are alwayas accusing me of being someone else. I cant believe I got these Beyonce stans so mad that even when I’m at school they find some way to bring me up on here. LOL.

    SN: Still dying @ the delusions and Digger H**’s exposure

  294. Kyle March 3, 2014

    @Slayriah You seem a little too upset over it. Get over it and move along…

  295. DIGGER BEY March 3, 2014

    MC….Gurl why are u worrying about THE HIVE or QUEEN? THE QUEEN really has sold 32 million albums in the US and over 80 million WW. Those 15 million sold are way more than Hoeianna and MooMoo sold between 03 and now.

  296. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) March 3, 2014

    @Kyle

    I wasn’t even talking to you. I’m not upset about it. I actually find it very funny. I’m still dying tbh. The hive is pathetic just like Weak album seller-Yonce.

  297. Kyle March 3, 2014

    You don’t have to be talking to me. Just calm tf down, your making it even more obvious it was you.

  298. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) March 3, 2014

    @Kyle

    the Hive stays make-believing

    I’ve been accused of being touche, Mimi, Stephy’s diseased ass, and recently another Mariah fan with a screen name “Queen Mariah”

    I can’t even take the hive seriously at this point. The irony though is you accusing me when Digger H** (your fellow hive member) was just exposed with actual proof. lol

    The hive is fuming. The hive always hated me because I don’t kiss BeyStrugglce’s ass.

  299. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) March 3, 2014

    The hive can stay mad. Nothing they say will deter my slayage or Mariah’s slayage. That goes for Samantha as well.

  300. Kyle March 3, 2014

    @Slayriah. Dead. You’re still going on about it? Lovebird is always getting accused of trolling, so does Slay_Hive I don’t see them going on about it…

  301. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) March 3, 2014

    @Kyle.

    I could tell your pressed. I gotta go study for my test. bye

  302. Kyle March 3, 2014

    I just want more Beyonce. Beyonce did that s*** because people were foaming at the mouth for new music from Mother. She did a lot of teasing. The Superbowl. All of 2013 was a tease for her album. Other artists could do the same and no one would care. Cerror. Kelly Rowland. Keri Hilson. Ashanti. Brandy. All could do the same thing Beyonce did and no one would notice or care. I won’t soon forger DLing the album moments after midnight and getting my life and weeping like a queen f** because i gave up on Bey years ago and i got my life’s story from the album b****!!!! Yess!!! I can see Green Day or Coldplay doing something similar. Also Rihanna could benefit but the material has to be strong.

    Spotify is a great way to listen to a whole album and decide whether it’s worth buying, and it’s awesome for helping you find new artists to like (kind of like related videos on YouTube). I’ve gotten into maybe 20 new artists just by trying out suggestions and checking out Related Artists. Unless you have a premium account, it’s worth it just to avoid the annoying commercials. But, if you buy it, it’s yours, so you’ll have it whenever, wherever, forever.

    So, so ignorant, Tyler. I can’t even be bothered to go into all the reasons why. When you’re that ignorant, you won’t listen anyway. Foreign artists are slaying in their regions of the world as American artists now couldn’t even dream of, but American artists become as influential as they are because international listeners aren’t ignorant like you are. But you go ahead with your ignorance. How dreadful.
