Beyonce’s ‘Hold Up’ Holds Sweet Spot On UK Radio Airplay Chart

Published: Friday 3rd Jun 2016 by David

Clearly keen to avoid the practice of following trends on radio, Beyonce‘s efforts to push albums over singles continues to work in her favour on a sales front.

Fortunately, this strategy-which protects her from commercial woes her R&B sibling Usher currently faces– has done little to stop British radio programmers from throwing their support behind her number ‘Hold Up.’

Full story below…

The release currently sits at #19 on the UK Radio Airplay Chart thanks to spins it picked up on the nation’s radio platforms.

One spot beneath it at #20 is her Coldplay-fronted jam ‘Hymn For the Weekend’ which sat at #26 last week, rising six places as Fifth Harmony’s ‘Work From Home’ spends another week at #12.

At #1? Justin Timberlake‘s ‘Can’t Stop the Feeling.

      @HailTranny you will always be a wannabe be black person. Never gonna happen 👊🏿

    • Danzou June 3, 2016

      How dumb are you she made a film to promote that lame album.

  4. Music all the way June 3, 2016

    I don’t get why this is news but congrats I guess! I have seen few clips of formation tour on YouTube and I have to say it is everything! that formation opening man. but I know Pettyonce won’t bother coming to South Africa so whatever.

    • Mandla June 3, 2016

      She will early next year according to the CEO of big concerts

      • HailBeysus June 3, 2016

        Where did you get your Tea?
        @Music she really should. I see loads of her South African fan base asking her with every tour since The Mrs Carter Tour.

      • Music all the way June 3, 2016

        What?? where did you get your info from, I have always saved some money with each of her tours but always getting disappointed! I hope this is true 👌 👌 👌 👌 👌 👌👍 👍 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍

    Who Cares?

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) June 3, 2016

      You, since u commented sis..LMAO

    • Keri Qween June 3, 2016

      No one King the song is tired

      • Surprise..(DEC 2013) June 3, 2016


    • Danzou June 3, 2016

      I have to agree with queen mark for once.

  6. HailBeysus June 3, 2016

    Y’all do realise that’s not Mark! Lol!

  7. King B June 3, 2016

    LMAO. He commented ” Who Cares” when his fav only number one in US was based on airplay. He’s right tho, who cares about that irrelevant “record” that she set. Not like the airplay record gonna make the fans go out and buy the album. Can’t say the same about Survivor that went multiplatinum in US, UK, Canada and the rest of the world and became the 3rd WW best selling album in 2001.

    • King Mark111 /.\ June 3, 2016

      B**** please!! you stan for Pigtina the fat flop who can’t even sell her albums any more and forever live in Britney’s shadow. Hiding behind Beyonce won’t hide the fact that she is a FLOP!!!

      • King B June 3, 2016

        LOL Mark 666. You main fav is Aaliyah and you hide behind Rih. Yes. I Like Xtina, but Bey is my main fav. Whether it’s Xtina or Bey or DC, all of them outsold your favorite, PURE SALES, not streams, not AIRPLAY in US and UK or Worldwide. By the way, “Pig”tina attracted 250,000 crowds, Global Superstar? Lemonade topped Australian and UK album chart, how bout Global Superstar? Those washed up veteran beat ur Global Superstar and needless to say more about the other local act.

      • King Mark111 /.\ June 3, 2016

        Blah blah blah, my fave is a c********* and the other one is DEAD. you better cling to those festival receipts because we both know she won’t be able to attract the same numbers if she had to tour today

      • King Mark111 /.\ June 3, 2016

        Sis you better cling to those festival receipts we both know Pigtina can’t attract the same amount of people if she had to embark on a solo tour.

  8. #JACKIE June 3, 2016

    Cute, but where’s Formation and Sorry on the hot 100?

    • King Mark111 /.\ June 3, 2016

      The same place where your fave’s penis is hiding

      • Surprise..(DEC 2013) June 3, 2016


      • #JACKIE June 3, 2016

        B**** how about I smack you with my big ass d***? I’m sure you’d enjoy that though, Chaturbate f**.

    • RihYonce June 3, 2016

      Formation debuted at #10 after being free for 3 months & sorry debuted at 11 & is in the top 10 on iTunes without promo or a video on vevo 😊

  9. DEL BEY June 3, 2016

    Slay Queen, I don’t drink soda if it ain’t Lemonade anymore!

  10. DEL BEY June 3, 2016

    Anti slays too, Needed Me, Desperado and Same Ol Mistakes slayyyyyy

    • Datredd23 June 3, 2016

      Good to see unbiased fans still exist! Lol

  11. Coolness June 3, 2016

    This is my favorite song on the album after Don’t Hurt Yourself. The way she plays with the deeper parts of her voice on the whole song is so masterful. Especially when she sings, “…. never had the baddest woman in the game up in your shee-e-eets…” Her lower register >>> That of some MALE singers in the industry 🤗😜.

    • King B June 3, 2016

      hahahha. lol. Its very hard for me to sing that song!

  12. Cinnamon Girl June 3, 2016

    Still not number 1, Beyawnce?!If she’s such a queen why can’t she get a hit song?

    • King Mark111 /.\ June 3, 2016

      Same reason why Mannara can’t get a platinum album anymore

      • Cinnamon Girl June 3, 2016

        What is the reason?

    • HailBeysus June 3, 2016

      Still pretending to be black you compulsive lying bitxh!

    • Mr.StLaurent June 3, 2016

      No need. She already as the #1 album WW on iTunes. $$$$$$$

  13. Diabetic Coma June 3, 2016

    I got a feeling beys SINGLES FLOPAGE is actually a good thing. Bey said since the 4 Era that she really push a full body of work than a single. Plus Beys singles success still rivals rih. As much as Aloyah stans brag about Try again being first to go #1 of radio spins alone INDEPENDENT WOMEN at the time set a record for most played song in history on radio in a single week. Idk if that was record was broken tho but it was set. Plus it going #1 for 11 weeks & Irreplacable for 10. First artist to do it group & Solo. Then we have CIL & Baby boy going #1 for 15 weeks str8. Plus first black woman & 2nd ever to win annual Ascap award for song writer of the year (Nelly also won one). & lol @ Lemonade it just passed Drake in WW sales which means it will hit 2 mill b4 views which sold less than 100k ww last week. I thought Lemonade would flop??? Lol meanwhile Anti just now selling 1 mill after 5 months with a ww hit.

    • Briano June 3, 2016

      And after giving away 1 million free albums

  14. nico June 3, 2016

    B**** please doing fine without vevo and big streaming apple Spotify unlike the number one

  15. Diabetic Coma June 3, 2016

    If beys casual Fans lack access to Lemonade & even its singles who knows that could keep album sales afloat the rest of the year. I see lemonade selling about 1.8 mill US & 3 mill ww. Still good for the price & we already know bey not gonna promote it or realese videos anytime soon. She didnt even let us H.oes download individual tracks on itunes when ST droped.

  16. King B June 3, 2016

    Stripped sold nearly 2 million in UK. Your local fav?I bet you will leave this post. Nvm, it sold less than Born To Die, around 300k.LMAO, not even the Black Madonna or Global Superstar aka Queen of UK albums outsold Stripped. Gaga sold 2.7m with the Fame. Xtina, 2 million with Stripped. Gaga had diamond album in France, Bey had one in Brazil, Swift and Pink had one in Aus. Katy Perry had Diamond singles in the same state ur fav had 14 number ones. Everyone surpassed our favorite. Oh, Katy Perry surpassed 5 billion streams. Digital Queen? Streaming Queen? Social Media Queen? LMAO. Selena Gomez had more followers than social media queen.
